Episode Quotes

Tywin Lannister: You're in rather a good mood.
Cersei Lannister: I suppose I am.
Tywin Lannister: I won't ask why.
Cersei Lannister: Small pleasures.

Oberyn Martell: Your Grace! Lord Tywin!
Tywin Lannister: Prince Oberyn.
Oberyn Martell: I don't believe you have met Ellaria. This is the Lord Hand, Tywin Lannister, and Cersei Lannister, the Queen Regent. I suppose it is "former Queen Regent" now. Lord Hand, Lady Cersei... Ellaria Sand.
Ellaria Sand: My lord. My lady.
Tywin Lannister: Charmed.
Cersei Lannister: Can't say I've ever met a Sand before.

Ellaria Sand: We are everywhere in Dorne. I have ten thousand brothers and sisters.
Oberyn Martell: Bastards are born of passion, aren't they? We don't despise them in Dorne.
Cersei Lannister: No? How tolerant of you.
Oberyn Martell: I expect it is a relief, Lady Cersei, giving up your regal responsibilities. Wearing the crown for so many years must have left your neck a bit crooked.
Cersei Lannister: I suppose you'll never know, Prince Oberyn. It's a shame your older brother couldn't attend the wedding.
Tywin Lannister: Please give him my regards. With any luck, the gout will abate with time and he'll be able to walk again.
Oberyn Martell: They call it a rich man's disease. A wonder you don't have it.
Tywin Lannister: Noblemen in my part of the country don't enjoy the same lifestyle as our counterparts in Dorne.
Oberyn Martell: People everywhere have their differences. In some places, the highborn frown upon those of low birth. In other places, the rape and murder of women and children is considered distasteful. What a fortunate thing for you, former Queen Regent, that your daughter Myrcella has been sent to live in a latter sort of place.
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.
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.

Mistakes/Goofs

  • 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.

Trivia

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The episode title refers to the sigils of House Lannister (lion) and House Tyrell (rose) and the joining of these two Houses.
  • 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.
