Daenerys Targaryen: What does your lord expect from me?
Melisandre: The Long Night is coming. Only the prince who was promised can bring the dawn.
Daenerys Targaryen: "The prince who was promised will bring the dawn." I'm afraid I'm not a prince.
Missandei: Your Grace, forgive me, but your translation is not quite accurate. That noun has no gender in High Valyrian, so the proper translation for that prophecy would be, "The prince or princess who was promised will bring the dawn."
Tyrion Lannister: Doesn't really roll off the tongue, does it?
Daenerys Targaryen: No, but I like it better.
Davos Seaworth (about Shireen): Tell him what you did to her. Tell him!
Melisandre: We burned her at the stake.
Davos Seaworth: Why?
Melisandre: The army was trapped. The horses were dying. It was the only way.
Davos Seaworth: You burned a little girl alive!
Melisandre: I only do what my Lord commands.
Davos Seaworth: If he commands you to burn children, your Lord is evil.
Melisandre: Do you feel my heart beating? This power in you, you resist it, and that's your mistake. Embrace it. The Lord of Light made us male and female. Two parts of a greater whole. In our joining there's power. Power to make life, power to make light, and power to cast shadows.
Jon Snow: I don't think Stannis would like that very much. Melisandre: Then we shouldn't tell him.
Jon Snow: I can't.
Jon Snow: I swore a vow. I loved another.
Melisandre: The dead don't need lovers. Only the living.
Jon Snow: I know. But I still love her.
Melisandre: You know nothing, Jon Snow.
