Quote from Game of Thrones 2x09 - Shae: Some of those boys will never come back. Sansa Stark: Joffrey will. The worst ones always live.

Ordered chronologically as they appear in the episode.

  1. Tyrion Lannister: You can’t fuck your way out of everything.
    Shae: I have so far. 
  2. Varys (to Tyrion): The dark arts have provided Lord Stannis with his armies and paved his path to our door. For a man in service to such powers to sit on the Iron Throne, I can think of nothing worse. And tonight, I believe you are the only man who can stop him. 
  3. Shae: Some of those boys will never come back.
    Sansa Stark: Joffrey will. The worst ones always live. 
  4. Cersei Lannister: The only way to keep the small folk loyal is to make certain they fear you more than they do the enemy. 
  5. Cersei Lannister: The Gods have no mercy. That’s why they’re Gods. My father told me that when he caught me praying. My mother just died, you see. I didn’t really understand the concept of death, the finality of it. I thought that if I prayed very, very hard, the Gods would return my mother to me. I was four.
    Sansa Stark: Your father doesn’t believe in the Gods?
    Cersei Lannister: He believes in them, he just doesn’t like them very much. 
  6. Quote from Game of Thrones 2x09 - Cersei Lannister: Tears aren't a woman's only weapon. The best one's between your legs.
    Cersei Lannister:
    Tears aren’t a woman’s only weapon. The best one’s between your legs. 
  7. Tyrion Lannister (speech to soldiers): Don’t fight for your king and don’t fight for his kingdoms. Don’t fight for honor. Don’t fight for glory. Don’t fight for riches, because you won’t get any. This is your city Stannis means to sack. That’s your gate he’s ramming. If he gets in, it will be your houses he burns, your gold he steals, your women he will rape. Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let’s go kill them. 
  8. Sansa Stark (speech to women and children): Don’t be afraid. The queen has raised the drawbridge. This is the safest place we can be. Joffrey’s not hurt. He’s fighting bravely. His knights have rallied behind him. They will save the city. 
  9. Sandor Clegane (to Sansa): Stannis is a killer. The Lannisters are killers. Your father was a killer. Your brother is a killer. Your sons will be killers someday. The world is built by killers. So you’d better get used to looking at them. 
  10. Cersei Lannister (her fairy tale for Tommen): The little cub was frightened. His mother said, “You are a lion, my son. You mustn’t be afraid. For one day all the beasts will bow to you. You will be king. All the stags will bow, all the wolves will bow. The bears in the north and the foxes of the south, all the birds in the sky and the beasts in the sea… they will all come to you, little lion… to rest a crown upon your head.” And the cub said, “Will I be strong and fierce like my father?” “Yes,” said his mother. “You will be strong and fierce just like your father.”
