For two seasons, Tyrion Lannister was the undisputed king of Game of Thrones one-liners. But Season 3 presented him with a worthy challenger: Lady Olenna, the Tyrell matriarch who just doesn't give a damn.
From her house's lackluster symbol to the trouble with being a mother, every word out of Olenna's mouth is witty, wise, or, often, both. For your amusement, we've gathered our favorite Olenna quotes from Season 3.
On Wisdom: "Loras is young, and very good at knocking men off horses with a stick. That does not make him wise." (Season 3, Episode 2)
On Renly: "Gallant, yes, and charming, and very clean. He knew how to dress and smile and somehow this gave him the notion he was fit to be king." (Season 3, Episode 2)
On mothering: "We mothers do what we can to keep our sons from the grave." (Season 3, Episode 4)
On the Tyrell rose: “I eat from plates stamped with roses, I sleep in sheets embroidered with roses, I have a golden rose painted on my chamber pot — as if that makes it smell any better. Roses are boring, dear." (Season 3, Episode 4)
On philosophy: "What happens when the non-existent bumps against the decrepit? Question for the philosophers." (Season 3, Episode 4)
On Tyrion: "I was told you were drunk, impertinent, and thoroughly debauched. You can imagine my disappointment at finding nothing but a browbeaten bookkeeper."(Season 3, Episode 5)
On telling it like it is: "A sword swallower through and through." (Season 3, Episode 6)
On knowing oneself: "As an authority on myself, I must disagree." (Season 3, Episode 6)
On the family tree: "Your brother will become your father-in-law, that much is beyond dispute." (Season 3, Episode 8)
