High Sparrow

Margaery Tyrell: Cersei is not here. Tommen is not here. Why do you think they're not here?

High Sparrow: If the accused is not here, she will be tried regardless. We cannot escape the justice of the gods...

Margaery Tyrell: Forget about the bloody gods and listen to what I'm telling you. Cersei understands the consequences of her absence and she is absent anyway, which means she does not intend to suffer those consequences. The trial can wait. We all need to leave. We all need to leave now!

High Sparrow: Queen Margaery has already atoned for her sins by bringing another into the true light of the Seven. (Tommen walks out) Together we announce a new age of harmony. A holy alliance between the Crown and the Faith.

(crowd is cheering)

Tommen Baratheon: The Crown and the Faith are the twin pillars upon which the world rests. Together we will restore the Seven Kingdoms to glory.

(crowd cheers again)

Mace Tyrell: What's happening?

Olenna Tyrell: He's beaten us. That's what's happening.

High Sparrow (to Cersei): The people who built this place didn't inflict their vanity on those who came after them the way Baelor did with that great gilded monstrosity up there. Their faith was clean. Strip away the gold and the ornaments, knock down the statues and the pillars, and this is what remains. Something simple... and solid and true. The Tyrells' finery will be stripped away. Their lies knocked down. Their true hearts laid bare for all to see. And so it will be for all of us. High and low alike. What will we find when we strip away your finery?

Olenna Tyrell: When House Tyrell stops sending our crops to the capital, everyone here will starve. And I'll make sure the hungry know who's to blame.

High Sparrow: Have you ever sowed the field, Lady Olenna? Have you ever reaped the grain? Has anyone in House Tyrell? A lifetime of wealth and power has left you blind in one eye. You are the few, we are the many. And when the many stop fearing the few...

High Sparrow (to Olenna): I imagine this is strange for you. Everyone you meet has a hidden motive and you pride yourself on sniffing it out. But I'm telling you a simple truth. I serve the gods. The gods demand justice.

High Sparrow: High Sparrow? Sounds ridiculous, doesn't it? Like Lord Duckling or King Turtle. Still, it's meant to... We're often stuck with the names our enemies give to us. The notion that we're all equal in the eyes of Seven doesn't sit well with some so they belittle me.
