Game of Thrones Season 4 kicked off the season tonight with the dramatic premiere (Season 4, Episode 1, "Two Swords"). And like any good Game of Thrones episode, it was overflowing with memorable quotes. We've gathered our 13 favorite here.

Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), on leaving the King's Guard: "My bloody honor's beyond repair, but my answer is still 'no.'"

Bronn (Jerome Flynn) on Tyrion's place in the world: "If he's so damned important, how come they've sent you to meet him?"

Ellaria Sand (Indira Varma) telling it like it is: "Oh, I'm not a lady... A lie, anywhere. Why not use the right words? I'm a bastard. She's a whore."

Bronn, on how he became a knight: "Killed the right people, I suppose."

Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) badass: "Tell you father I am here, and tell him the Lannisters aren't the only ones who pay their debts."

Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman) on his priorities: “I’d rather have no brains and two balls."

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) on Cat: "Your mother, on the other hand, I admired. She wanted to have me killed, but I admired her."

Alliser Thorne, raising a decent question: Jon: "I didn't murder him." Alliser: "No? You put your sword through a brother of the Night's Watch. What do you call that?"

Maester Aemon, on why he can tell when someone is lying: "I grew up in King's Landing."

Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) on her wedding day jewelry: "Perhaps I should just let Joffrey chose it for me, end up with a string of dead sparrow heads around my neck."

Jaime, on how he can protect Joffrey: "I use my left hand now, your grace. Makes it more of a contest."

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) on the Hound: "The little lady wants away from your stench."

The Hound (Rory McCann) making his position clear: "Fuck the king."
