The Witcher Quotes

Latest quotes added:

Jaskier: The war brewing outside is nothing compared to what Geralt will unleash to protect his daughter.

Yennefer: Destiny brought us together. Never lost. Always found.

Yennefer (to Ciri): No matter where you go, we will never be apart.

Geralt: We didn't come this far just to abandom each other.

Vilgefortz: If you want to protect what you love, join our side in the battle to come. The child will not remain safe for long, and your... passivity will be no weapon with which to save her.

Geralt: It is incredible how much my neutrality outrages everyone. How it subjects me to offers of pacts and agreements and lectures of the necessity of making a choice and joining the right side. I am not your equal partner in this game. So, no, I shall continue on my path. I shall respond to events. I'll adapt with the world as it changes.

Vilgefortz: I understand, witcher. But adapting may not be enough. Just know there is only one way you do not lose her.

Geralt: And if I refuse to join your side?

Vilgefortz: No matter where you go, what you do, there will always be enemies waiting for you.

Yennefer: To us. And a nearly perfect evening.

Geralt: I love you.

Yennefer: That's the first time you've ever said that.

Geralt: It can't be.

Yennefer: You used to think it. But tonight, you actually said it. You can kiss me now. In front of everyone. (they kiss) It's our first night out together. And all I can think about is getting you alone.

Jaskier: Hey. You don't have to do that. You don't have to prove what you're going to be in the future. My two orens? I think you're pretty all right right now.

Ciri: Well, that's the nicest thing you've ever said to me.

Jaskier: Ah, it's all part of my hustle. Just wait until this next hand. I'm going to mop the floor with your royal arse, milady.

(Geralt is having a conversation with Yennefer. Ciri and Jaskier are watching them, imagining what they're could be saying...)

Jaskier (as Yen): "Oh! What the hell were you thinking, fighting monsters?"

Ciri: That's not what she's saying.

Jaskier: Now, that is the role of poetry, Ciri. To say what others cannot utter. (as Geralt): "Oh, you fed her to the magical lion's den. I trusted you."

Ciri: You're just making this all up.

Jaskier: Meh. That's also the role of poetry. (as Yen): "At least she was in disguise there. Not clanging stupid swords when I told her not to draw attention to herself."

Ciri (as Geralt): "Funny, I wonder how she learned such complete and utter disregard for authority."

Jaskier: That was a good one. (as Yen): "You're unbelievable!"

Ciri (as Geralt): "You're delusional!"

Jaskier (as Yen): "I forgive you for your various foolish words and deeds. Your lack of faith and hope. For your obstinacy. Doggedness. For your sulking and posing, which are unworthy of a man."

Ciri (as Geralt): "I forgive you for being a wily witch who rarely listens and even more rarely admits to being wrong. Who is stubborn, and stuck-up, and self-righteous. Let's never do that again."

(Geralt and Yennefer start kissing...)

Jaskier (as Yen): "Mmm. Oh. Oh! Oh yes, take me." (as Geralt): "Do that thing with the tongue that I like." (as Yen): "Oh, you mean this? Bleugh, bleugh!" (as Geralt): "Oh yeah, that's the stuff. Is there a unicorn nearby, by any chance? Oh!" (to Ciri): Come on, you deviant.

Ciri: I shouldn't have left. I'm sorry.

Yennefer: I shouldn't have given you a reason to leave. I'm sorry. Let's never do that again. (Yen hugs Ciri) Jaskier, if you would.

Jaskier: Hmm? Ooh, yes. Uh, yeah, absolutely. Come on, kiddo. Why don't you tell me all about how you slayed the sea monster all on your own whilst Geralt sat around on his arse all afternoon, eh?

Triss: Bringing Ciri here, it's a bad idea.

Yennefer: But Ciri's power is neither good or bad. Her choices will shape her destiny.

Triss: That's not what I meant. It's her blood.

Yennefer: Yes, she's elven. So am I. And do you know when I was most dangerous? When I was desperate. And powerless. And alone. And that will not happen to her. Not as long as I'm around.

Ciri: I thought if I learned magic it would make me a better leader. Maybe my grandmother was right. Maybe it's better to govern with steel and steel alone.

Geralt: Hmm. As a witcher, I will accept coin from someone, no matter where they're from. Nations are invisible lines that people assign meaning to. A life, however... A life has real meaning. It's warm skin and a beating heart. It should only be taken as a last resort. Righteousness can easily become rage. Justice can easily become scorn. If you want to be a queen, be a queen. I think you'll make an excellent one.

Jaskier (to Ciri): Well, if it isn't my favorite pocket-sized princess. How are you? How are the lessons going?

Geralt: Tread lightly around the magic lessons.

Ciri: He's not actually talking about my lessons. He's talking about your lessons in smiling. Work in progress.

Jaskier: Yeah.

Ciri: You told me to never apologize for my power, and yet that's all you seem to do.

Yennefer: You want to be a great leader? You want to change the world? Well, the day-to-day of leading is dealing with a lot of vapid, power-hungry arseholes! I'm not Geralt. This isn't Kaer Morhen. This is the version of myself I have to be here. So you need to find a version of yourself that can deal with that.

Ciri: Trust me, I know you're not Geralt. He would never sell his soul like this.

Jaskier: Neutrality has consequences too, Geralt.

Geralt: There are already consequences, Jaskier. And not just for Ciri. I thought by taking her off the board, the world would stop trying to use her. Instead, they're trying to use others in her place.

Jaskier: And they will continue to. Because that is what people in power do. But she's not a witcher. She's certainly not an Aretuzan witch sourcing magic out of... stones, or hemp, or plants, or whatever it is that Yennefer does. She's a princess. I think you should trust her.

Geralt: Her source.

Jaskier: Her... what now?

Geralt: You're right.

Jaskier: I'm right... Well, that's deeply worrying. What?

Tissaia: You want me to help hide a princess whose existence means war?

Yennefer: I want more than that. She's extraordinary.

Tissaia: She's the rightful heir to Cintra and a great deal more, so I'm told. If war is coming, there is no hiding her from it.

Yennefer: Well, then, maybe she can lead us out of it. For all the Brotherhood's faults, they respect magic. She deserves to know what hers is capable of. She deserves control of her destiny. Please. Please help me make this right. For us. For her.

Tissaia: After all this time... After all your searching, you actually did it.

Yennefer: Did what?

Tissaia: Became a mother.

Otto: I'm not a druid. I'm a werewolf.

Jaskier: Whoa. What? You're... What? Uh, a...

Otto: I was bit, back in the plague of '21. Went out to the woods to isolate. Avoid the disease. Was so worried about boils and sh*tting myself to death, I wasn't thinking about werewolves.

Jaskier: Priority, yeah. I get it.

The Witcher Quotes - The best quotes from The Witcher series (Netflix)


Top 10 Quotes from The Witcher: Season 1

  • Geralt of Rivia: Evil is evil, Stregobor. Lesser, greater, middling… it’s all the same. I’m not judging you. I haven’t only done good in my life either. But now, if I have to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.
  • Jaskier: Respect doesn’t make history.
  • Jaskier: Toss a coin to your witcher; O Valley of Plenty; O Valley of Plenty, oh-oh-oh; Toss a coin to your witcher; A friend of humanity
  • Jaskier (to Geralt): You never get involved. Except you actually do, all of the time.
  • Yennefer: Let’s face it, you’re a girl. Your mother was right about one thing. We’re just vessels. And even when we’re told we’re special, as I was, as you would’ve been, we’re still just vessels for them to take and take… until we’re empty and alone. So, count yourself lucky. You’ve cheated the game and won without even knowing it. Sleep well.
  • EithnĂ© (to Ciri): The burden of power… can be painful. Be vigilant. Always ask the right questions. Your destiny is in your own hands and no one else’s.
  • Cahir: The time of the sword and the ax is nigh.
  • Ciri: I should’ve traded that ring for food. You’re right, Clop. Or are you Clip? Gods, what kind of crazy person talks to a horse?
  • Tissaia (to Yennefer): It’s your turn… to save these people, this Continent. This… is your legacy. Everything you have ever felt, everything you’ve buried… Mm… Forget the bottle. Let your chaos explode.
  • Geralt: People linked by destiny will always find each other.

Top 10 Quotes from The Witcher: Season 2

  • Geralt (to Ciri): Fear is an illness. If you catch it and you leave it untreated, it can consume you. You face it. Facing your fear is not easy. But I am here for you. I won’t let anything happen to you.
  • Geralt: Witchers watch for answers.
  • Yennefer: You’re born helpless so you find strength. Then that’s all they want you for, to use you. And you find love, but it isn’t real. It’s… it’s a wish someone made once, before they even knew who you were. And you… you find power, and it turns to ash in your hands!
  • Yennefer: The most important thing they teach you at Aretuza isn’t magic! It’s to make people in power believe anything you want them to. Do anything you want them to!
  • Jaskier: It’s my job to put myself in other people’s shoes. Even if they are, in your case, large, clunky, and, I don’t know, probably full of snakes or something. I’m scared too. I’m scared that one day, the muses will stop speaking to me. Because who are we… When we can no longer do the one thing we were put on this Continent to do?
  • Geralt (to Ciri): Neither you nor I can just forget who we are. We can’t kill our feelings. Our best chance is to kill the hatred that we may hold onto… And move on.
  • Jaskier (to Geralt): Last time we saw each other, you basically told me to f**k off. Remember? And you left me on a mountain. Have you seen these boots? I mean, I pretty much just slid all the way down that hill back to Caingorn.
  • Ciri (about Geralt): He’s the father I never had. When I’m with him, I don’t feel alone anymore.
  • Yennefer (to Ciri): When you have power like this, never apologize.
  • Ciri: Every time I think I can move forward, there’s this force bringing me back into darkness.
