Alicent Hightower: Listen to me, Aegon. Your grandfather, the Hand, will try to impress on you that Rhaenyra should be put to the sword. You must reject this counsel. We must not rule with cruelty and callousness. For all her faults, she is your sister, your father's daughter...
Aegon Targaryen: Do you love me?
Alicent Hightower: You imbecile.
Otto Hightower: Well played.
Alicent Hightower: None of this is a game.
Otto Hightower: And yet you treat it as one. A charming contest, the prize, a pouch of silver. We have relied on one another these many years. And now it is the good of the family that we both desire. Whatever our differences, our hearts remain as one.
Alicent Hightower: Our hearts were never one. I see that now. Rather, I have been a piece that you moved about the board.
Alicent Hightower: You are nearly a man-grown. How is it that you can be so shortsighted? If Rhaenyra comes into power... your very life could be forfeit. Aemond's as well. She could move to cut off any challenge to her succession.
Aegon Targaryen: Then I won't challenge...
Alicent Hightower: You are the challenge! You are the challenge, Aegon! Simply by living and breathing! You are the King's firstborn son and what they know, what everyone in the realm knows in their blood and in their bones is that one day, you will be our King.
Alicent Hightower: To have every young knight and lord in the Seven Kingdoms fawning over you... What misery. It is rare for girls in this realm to get a choice between two suitors, no less two score of them.
Rhaenyra Targaryen: Those men and boys don't fawn over me. They only want my name and my Valyrian blood for their offspring.
Alicent Hightower: I think it's rather romantic.
Rhaenyra Targaryen: How romantic it must be to get imprisoned in a castle and made to squeeze out heirs. Sorry.
Viserys Targaryen: It is a war started by two malcontents, unhappy with decisions I made. If I now provide Daemon and Corlys succor, what will that say of their king?
Alicent Hightower: Perhaps, that he is a good man who loves his brother.
Viserys Targaryen: Well, if you truly believe that, my dear... then you possess a generous spirit.
Alicent Hightower: What do you believe, Viserys?
Viserys Targaryen: That I am forever doomed to anger one person in the pleasing of another.
