Otto Hightower (to Alicent): A sacrifice made for the stability of the realm. No king has ever lived that hasn't had to forfeit the lives of a few to protect the many.

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.

Otto Hightower: You'll not leave this room without declaring your intention.

Lord Merryweather: I am no oath breaker. I will not bend the knee.

Otto Hightower (about Rhaenyra): She and her family will be given the opportunity to publicly swear obeisance to the new King.

Otto Hightower (to Alicent): The King will die. It may be months or years, but he'll not live to be an old man. And if Rhaenyra succeeds him, war will follow, do you understand? The realm will not accept her. And to secure her claim, she'll have to put your children to the sword. She'll have no choice. You know it. You're no fool, and yet you choose not to see it. The time is coming, Alicent. Either you prepare Aegon to rule, or you cleave to Rhaenyra and pray for her mercy.

Daemon Targaryen: Where is the King? I don't see him.

Otto Hightower: His Grace would never lower himself to entertain such a mummer's farce.

Viserys Targaryen: Daemon has ambition, yes, but not for the throne. He lacks the patience for it.

Otto Hightower: The gods have yet to make a man who lacks the patience for absolute power, Your Grace.

Viserys Targaryen: I named Daemon Master of Laws, but you said he was a tyrant. As Master of Coin You said he was a spendthrift that would beggar the realm. Putting Daemon in command of the City Watch was your solution!

Otto Hightower: A half-measure, Your Grace. The truth is, Daemon should be far away from this court.
