Tyrion Lannister: From now on, rulers will not be born. They will be chosen on this spot by the lords and ladies of Westeros... to serve the realm. (to Bran): I know you don't want it. I know you don't care about power. But I ask you now, if we choose you... will you wear the crown? Will you lead the Seven Kingdoms to the best of your abilities from this day until your last day?
Bran Stark: Why do you think I came all this way?
Bran Stark: I'm something else now.
Jaime Lannister: You're not angry at me.
Bran Stark: I'm not angry at anyone.
Jaime Lannister: Why didn't you tell them?
Bran Stark: You won't be able to help us in this fight if I let them murder you first.
Jaime Lannister: What about afterwards?
Bran Stark: How do you know there is an afterwards?
Bran Stark: Robert's Rebellion was built on a lie. Rhaegar didn't kidnap my aunt or rape her. He loved her. And she loved him. And Jon... Jon's real name...
Lyanna Stark (in flashback): His name is Aegon Targaryen. You have to protect him. Promise me, Ned.
Bran Stark: He's never been a b*stard. He's the heir to the Iron Throne. He needs to know. We need to tell him.
Bran Stark: He needs to know the truth.
Samwell Tarly: The truth about what?
Bran Stark: About himself. No one knows. No one but me. Jon isn't really my father's son. He's the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and my aunt, Lyanna Stark. He was born in a tower in Dorne. His last name isn't really Snow, it's Sand.
Samwell Tarly: It's not.
Bran Stark: Dornish b*stards are named Sand.
Samwell Tarly: At the Citadel, I transcribed a High Septon's diary. He annulled Rhaegar's marriage to Elia. He wed Rhaegar and Lyanna in a secret ceremony.
