Game of Thrones has always dealt with some heavy material, and Season 3 only upped the ante. Mutilation, dismemberment, the Red Wedding ... there was a lot to turn your stomach. Fortunately, Tyrion Lannister was always there to lighten the mood with a good quip or an interesting insight, even at his own disastrous wedding party.
For your amusement, we've gathered our favorite Tyrion quotes from Season 3.
