Episode Quotes

Jaime Lannister: My brother tells me you can keep your mouth shut. Unusual talent for a sellsword.
Bronn: He tells me you shit gold just. Like your father.
Jaime Lannister: Is this place safe?

Bronn: There's this knight, Leygood. Got thunderbolts on his shield.
Jaime Lannister: Uh-huh.
Bronn: Right here is where I fuck his wife. She's a screamer, that one.

Bronn: If they don't hear her, they won't hear us.
Sansa Stark: We have a new queen.
Tyrion Lannister: Better her than you.
Grand Maester Pycelle: No, no, no. Come to my chambers and I will examine you personally.
Cersei Lannister: [interrupts] She'll do no such thing.
Grand Maester Pycelle: [to Cersei] Oh, Your Grace. This young lady sought my advice on a rather, uh...
Cersei Lannister: [to the girl] Just see Qyburn, he's quite good.

Grand Maester Pycelle: Qyburn? Deplorable man. Brought shame on the Citadel with his repugnant experiments...
Cersei Lannister: More repugnant than your gnarled fingers on that girl's thighs?
Grand Maester Pycelle: Your Grace, I am a man of learning...
Cersei Lannister: My little brother had you sent to the black cells when you annoyed him. What do you think I could do to you if you annoyed me?
Grand Maester Pycelle: I never meant to annoy anyone...
Cersei Lannister: But you ARE. You're annoying me right now. Every breath you draw in my presence annoys me. So here's what I want you to do. I want you to leave my presence. Leave this wedding right now, go to the kitchens, and instruct them that all the leftovers from the feast will be brought to the kennels.
Grand Maester Pycelle: Your Grace, uh, Queen Margaery said they were to be...
Cersei Lannister: The QUEEN is telling you the leftovers will feed the dogs... or you will.


  • Goof (continuity error): As Olenna Tyrell speaks to Sansa and Tyrion at the wedding reception, her right hand is resting on Sansa's shoulder as Tyrion moves to his seat. In the next shot, her hands are clasped in front of her.
  • Goof (continuity error): When Joffrey is choking on the floor he points to Tyrion who bends down and picks up the goblet. After he dies He points at Tyrion and then Cercei turns and we see Tyrion bend down and pick up the goblet again.


  • The episode title refers to the sigils of House Lannister (lion) and House Tyrell (rose) and the joining of these two Houses.
  • In the novels, Jaime does not practice fighting with Bronn, but rather Ser Ilyn Payne.
  • When Joffrey asks for suggestions for the name of his new sword, the first name shouted out is "Stormbringer". This is name of the sword of Elric of Melnibone, and the name of the first novel of a seminal fantasy series by writer Michael Moorcock about this demon-ridden anti-hero.
  • SPOILER: In the books Axell Florent is Selyse's uncle rather than brother, and it is another uncle, Alester Florent, who Stannis has burned alive, and not for refusing to renounce the Faith of the Seven but on suspicion of allying with the Lannisters. The sacrifice was never depicted in the novels but referenced in the appendices.
  • Sigur Ros, an Icelandic post-rock band, was hired as the Wedding Band for King Joffery's wedding ceremony. You can listen to their version of 'Rains Of Castamere' at the end credits of the episode, and witness the band itself at the wedding; the three of them are those whom the king throws coins at.
