Viserys Targaryen: It is a war started by two malcontents, unhappy with decisions I made. If I now provide Daemon and Corlys succor, what will that say of their king?
Alicent Hightower: Perhaps, that he is a good man who loves his brother.
Viserys Targaryen: Well, if you truly believe that, my dear... then you possess a generous spirit.
Alicent Hightower: What do you believe, Viserys?
Viserys Targaryen: That I am forever doomed to anger one person in the pleasing of another.
Rhaenys Targaryen: Whether it's to my daughter or to someone else's, your father will remarry sooner than late. His new wife will produce new heirs, and chances are better than not that one of those will be male. And when that boy comes of age and your father has passed, the men of the realm will expect him to be heir, not you. Because that is the order of things.
Rhaenyra Targaryen: When I'm Queen, I will create a new order.
Viserys Targaryen (to Rhaenyra): Aegon foresaw the end of the world of men. 'Tis to begin with a terrible winter gusting out of the distant north. Aegon saw absolute darkness riding on those winds. And whatever dwells within will destroy the world of the living. When this Great Winter comes, Rhaenyra, all of Westeros must stand against it. And if the world of men is to survive a Targaryen must be seated on the Iron Throne. A king or queen strong enough to unite the realm against the cold and the dark. Aegon called his dream "The Song of Ice and Fire."
