Episode Quotes

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.
Roose Bolton: What did you do to him?
Ramsay Snow: I trained him, he was a slow learner, but he learned.
Roose Bolton: You flayed him.
Ramsay Snow: Peeled a few bits... removed a few others.
Roose Bolton: This was Balon Greyjoy's son and heir.
Ramsay Snow: We've been flaying our enemies for a thousand years. The flayed man is on our banners!
Roose Bolton: MY banners, not yours. You're not a Bolton, you're a Snow.
Loras Tyrell: Ser Jaime, I'm very sorry.
Jaime Lannister: Ser Loras, it's quite all right.

Jaime Lannister: Your sister looks very beautiful.
Loras Tyrell: As does yours.
Jaime Lannister: So... looking forward to your wedding?

Loras Tyrell: Yes, very much.
Jaime Lannister: Our fathers are both rather keen on the prospect.
Loras Tyrell: They certainly are.
Jaime Lannister: Perhaps they should get married.

Jaime Lannister: If you were to marry Cersei, she'd murder you in your sleep.

Jaime Lannister: If you somehow managed to put a child in her first, she'd murder him, too, long before he drew his first breath. Luckily for you, none of this will happen because you'll never marry her.
Loras Tyrell: [nods] And neither will you.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • 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 (factual errors): In Joffrey Baratheon wedding, Joffrey pour almost glass of wine on Tyrion Lannister head, put in later scenes, Tyrion hair look dry.
  • Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: 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.
  • Goof (continuity error): In Joffery's wedding, Joffery pour wine on Tyrion head, but in next scene his hairs look dry and showing no effect of liquid on hair.

Trivia

  • The episode title refers to the wedding of Joffrey and Margaery, and the sigils of their houses: Joffrey is a member of Houses Baratheon of King's Landing (stag/lion) and Lannister (lion), and Margaery is a member of House Tyrell (rose).
  • This episode marks the first appearance of Dean-Charles Chapman as Tommen Baratheon. Callum Wharry previously played the role in the first two seasons. Chapman first appeared on the series as Tommen's cousin Martyn Lannister in season three.
  • In the novels, Jaime does not practice fighting with Bronn, but rather Ser Ilyn Payne.
  • SPOILER: Joffrey's wedding has been nicknamed by the fans as "Purple Wedding", referring to the wine used to assassinate Joffrey and the amethysts on Sansa's special hairnet (changed to a necklace of blue stones in the show), as well as to draw a parallel with the infamous Red Wedding. The nickname has become so popular that even George R.R. Martin and the HBO production team have been known to use it. The term is never used in the novels, though.
  • 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.
