Tyrion Lannister: I’ve been a cynic for as long as I can remember. Everyone’s always asking me to believe in things… family, gods, kings, myself. It was often tempting until I saw where belief got people. So I said no, thank you to belief. And yet here I am. I believe in you. It’s embarrassing, really. I’d swear you my sword, but I don’t actually own a sword.
Daenerys Targaryen: It’s your counsel I need.
Tyrion Lannister: It’s yours. Now and always.
Daenerys Targaryen: Good. I, um… I had something made for you. I’m not sure if it’s right. Tyrion Lannister, I name you Hand of the Queen.
