Samwell Tarly: The interesting thing is, our vows never specifically forbid intimate relations with women.
Jon Snow: What?
Samwell Tarly: "I shall take no wife," yes, that's in there. There's no denying that. "I shall father no children." It's very specific. But what do our vows have to say about other... activities is open to interpretation.
Ygritte: Or do you like girls who swoon, Jon Snow? Oh, a spider! Save me, Jon Snow. My dress is made of the purest silk from Tralalalaleeday.
Jon Snow: I'd like to see you in a silk dress.
Ygritte: Would you?
Jon Snow: So I could tear it off you.
Ygritte: Well, you rip my pretty silk dress, I'll blacken your eye.
Mance Rayder: You're telling me you saw one of them? And why would that make you desert your brothers?
Jon Snow: Because when I told the Lord Commander, he already knew. Thousands of years ago, the First Men battled the White Walkers and defeated them. I want to fight for the side that fights for the living. Did I come to the right place?
Qhorin Halfhand: The Watch has given you a great gift. You only have one thing to give in return... your life.
Jon Snow: I'll gladly give my life.
Qhorin Halfhand: I don't want you to be glad about it. I want you to curse and fight until your heart's done pumping. And know this, boy... your death will be a gift for them south of the Wall. They'll never know what you've done. They'll never know how you died. They won't even know your damn name, but they'll be alive because some nameless b*stard north of the Wall gave his life for theirs.
Jon and Sam: Hear my words and bear witness to my vow. Night gathers and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to The Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.
Jon Snow: Why do you read so much?
Tyrion Lannister: If I'd been born a peasant they might've left me out in the woods to die. Alas, I was born a Lannister of Casterly Rock. Things are expected of me. I must do my part for the honor of my house, wouldn't you agree? But how? Well, my brother has his sword and I have my mind. And a mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone. That's why I read so much, Jon Snow.
