She narrowed her eyes. "What is our heart's desire?"

"Vengeance." His voice was soft, as if he were afraid someone might be listening. "Justice." Prince Doran pressed the onyx dragon into her palm with his swollen, gouty fingers, and whispered, "Fire and blood."

"You thlew my bear!" Vargo Hoat shrieked.

Also, all the prophecies and visions.

There's honestly just too many quotes...

Jaime Lannister

"Put this in the fire."

"The things I do for love."

"You are speaking of a highborn lady. Call her by her name. Call her Brienne." ("Aye, Brienne the Beauty.")

Jaime's speech in the bathhouse.

"By what right does the wolf judge the lion? By what right?"

Littlefinger

"I did tell you not to trust me."

All of his advice to Sansa about playing the game.

Sansa/The Hound

"Does it give you joy to scare people?" / "No, it gives me joy to kill them."

Tyrion Lannister

"And now I have slapped a king. Did my hand fall from my wrist?"

"Bronn, the next time Ser Boros speaks, kill him."

Not the exact quote, but Tyrion tells Jaime, "Look at us, the two Lannister boys: noseless and handless."

"In the end, Tywin Lannister did not, in fact, shit gold."

Qhorin Halfhand

"...sharp...steel.."

Jorah Mormont

"Rhaegar fought valiantly, Rhaegar fought nobly, and Rhaegar died."

Oberyn Martell

"Elia. You raped her, you murdered her, you killed her children. Say her name."

"Elia of Dorne!"

"Not as a judge. As your champion.

Jon Snow

"Edd, fetch me a block."

"You have the Wall, Jon Snow."

"Stick them with the pointy end."

Rhaegar

"...for his is the song of ice and fire."

"I find it passing odd that I am loved by one for a kindess I never did, and reviled by so many for my finest act." <3

"Come lady Stark, don't you find this all terribly amusing?"

"Vengeance. Justice. Fire and Blood."

"Not Robert II. Aerys III"

"My brother has a sword, and I have my mind, and a mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone. That's why I read so much Jon Snow".

I'll post again when I think of more.

"And Cersei began to cry.

Tyrion Lannister could not have been more astonished if Aegon the Conqueror himself had burst into the room, riding on a dragon and juggling lemon pies."

Something about that image always makes me laugh. I think it reminds me of this.

"The War of the Ninepenny Kings?"

"So they called it, though I never saw a king, nor earned a penny. It was war, though. That it was."

Just that whole speech is amazing

And why not:

"Men call me Darkstar, and I am of the night"

This has to be the best written exchange in the whole series to date. It is absolutely one of my favorite moments. Such epic badassry just spewing from these four characters in such a short scene.

“I looked for you on the Trident,” Ned said to them.

“We were not there,” Ser Gerold answered.

“Woe to the Usurper if we had been,” said Ser Oswell.

“When King's Landing fell, Ser Jaime slew your king with a golden sword, and I wondered where you were.”

“Far away,” Ser Gerold said, “or Aerys would yet sit the Iron Throne, and our false brother would burn in seven hells.”

“I came down on Storm's End to lift the siege,” Ned told them, and the Lords Tyrell and Redwyne dipped their banners, and all their knights bent the knee to pledge us fealty. I was certain you would be among them.”

“Our knees do not bend easily,” said Ser Arthur Dayne.

“Ser Willem Darry is fled to Dragonstone, with your queen and Prince Viserys. I thought you might have sailed with him.”

“Ser Willem is a good man and true,” said Ser Oswell.

“But not of the Kingsguard,” Ser Gerold pointed out. “The Kingsguard does not flee.”

“Then or now,” said Ser Arthur. He donned his helm.

“We swore a vow,” explained old Ser Gerold.

Ned’s wraiths moved up beside him, with shadow swords in hand. They were seven against three.

“And now it begins,” said Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning. He unsheathed Dawn and held it with both hands. The blade was pale as milkglass, alive with light.

“No,” Ned said with sadness in his voice. “Now it ends.”

the part about wraiths leaves me puzzled...are there any insights/threads about this line?

I think it's more so to add to the haze of a dream, the way people and shapes just flow and shift throughout your dreams.
