In a perpetual sea of Sex and the City reruns and HGTV marathons, our love for Game of Thrones truly emerged like a diamond in the rough. Never before had a show about warring medieval factions even remotely captivated a sliver of our interest, and we began to actually look forward to Sunday evenings. Over the last seven seasons, we loved and we lost (RIP Hodor), and we bid adieu without so much as blinking an eye—just straight-up side-eye, Joffrey. Winter is most definitely upon us, Jon Snow and Khaleesi have met at long last and Ed Sheeran failed to impress. As we anxiously wait for next Sunday’s episode, here are ten of the most memorable Game of Thrones quotes scoured from the last seven kingdoms seasons.


1. When Khaleesi Told Her Brother To Check Himself Before He Wrecked Himself

“The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands!” —Daenerys Targaryen (Season One, Episode Seven)

Mother of dragons, braid game on point and Khaleesi of spirit animals.


2. And Cersei Lannister Set the Stakes Pretty, Pretty High

“When you play the game of thrones you win or you die.” —Cersei Lannister (Season One, Episode Seven)

Queen Regent of the Seven Kingdoms, lover of brother and one seriously sinister sista.

4. And Khaleesi Reminded Missandei That Ladies Run Westeros
