Episode Quotes

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.
Bronn: All taken care of.
Tyrion Lannister: You saw her board the ship?
Bronn: Aye, she's on it.
Tyrion Lannister: And you saw the ship sail away?
Bronn: No one knows she's there but you, me, and Varys.
Tyrion Lannister: How do you know?
Bronn: Because if someone follows me without an invitation, I'm the last person they ever follow.
Tyrion Lannister: [worriedly] Is someone following you? [Bronn puts a hand on Tyrion's shoulder]
Bronn: She's gone. I know you don't want to believe it, but she is. Now, go drink until it feels like you did the right thing.
Sansa Stark: We have a new queen.
Tyrion Lannister: Better her than you.


  • 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.
  • 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.


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • In the novels, Jaime does not practice fighting with Bronn, but rather Ser Ilyn Payne.
  • The episode title refers to the sigils of House Lannister (lion) and House Tyrell (rose) and the joining of these two Houses.
  • 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.
