Favorite quotes from Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper

Game of Thrones isn't an easy to show to watch. While I respect that it manages to reach into my guts and squeeze and have such an effect, I also kind of hate it sometimes. Even when I know what's coming. The Mountain and the Viper delivered some intriguing moments, a memorable and hilarious scene, and also made me hide behind a pillow.

Read my spoilery thoughts on the episode and see my favorite quotes after the image.

Favorite quotes:

“You raped her! You murdered her! You killed her children!” - Oberyn Martell

"Don't worry about your death. Worry about your life. Take charge of your life for as long as it lasts." - Littlefinger

"You're going to fight that?" - Ellaria Sand

“Laughing at another person’s misery was the only thing that made me feel like everyone else.” - Tyrion Lannister

“Whoever dies last, be a good lad and burn the rest of us. Once I’m done with this world, I don’t want to come back.” - Dolorous Edd

“Don’t ever presume to touch me again or say my name." - Daenerys Targaryen

“Size does not matter when you’re flat on your back." - Oberyn Martell

“Better to gamble on the man you know than the strangers you don’t.” - Littlefinger

“Far too much has been written about great men, and not nearly enough about morons.” - Tyrion Lannister

Random thoughts:

- Let's get the worst out of the way. I've read the books. I knew how the Trial by Combat was going to end. But, damn, I was not prepared to watch it. I admired and liked Oberyn Martell in the books. In the series though, Pedro Pascal did such a tremendous job breathing life into the character that I loved him.

I looked forward to every one of his seconds on screen. I couldn't wait to hear him dress down the Lannisters or deliver a biting one-liner. He was a joy. There was a second - just a second - during the fight that I thought the showrunners were going to change his fate. They were going to let Oberyn live. Obviously, that was not the case. I started crying shortly after the battle started because it hurt so much to see him flitting around triumphantly, thinking he was getting his revenge. As the fight progressed and the moment of Oberyn's death approached, I hid behind a pillow. I saw a few peeks and the aftermath. I couldn't deal. I was still crying fifteen minutes after the show ended. Gods dammit, Game of Thrones.

- Alongside this tragedy, we got a priceless scene with Arya and the Hound. Her hysterical laughter when she found out her aunt had died mere days before they reached the Bloody Gate... It was laugh out loud hilarious but tragic, too. Game of Thrones should really be titled: The Starks Can't Catch a Break.

- Sansa surprised me in this episode. From what I remember, this didn't play out like it did in the books. She revealed her true name, which I don't think was super intelligent, but she covered for Littlefinger. She's aware of her position, and she chose the best of two evils. I like seeing her become more clever even if it's because of sad reasons. Now, if Littlefinger would only stop giving her creepy looks.

- The scene between Tyrion and Jaime also brought some levity to the episode. Peter Dinklage proved yet again that he deserves a pile of Emmys. The beetle story might have gone on a touch too long, but even so, it was captivating. It was delicately balanced too so it started out with amusing impersonations by the brothers and ended with the beginning of Tyrion's trial. My heart.

- The quick trip to Mole's Town didn't do a lot for me, but I know they needed to set up the impending battle at Castle Black. I was surprised to see Ygritte spare Gilly and her baby, but we're reassured there is some compassion left in her. I have a hunch she won't be so nice when it comes to facing Jon Snow.

- It was only a matter of time before Jorah got busted. The quiet anger of Daenerys Targaryen is a terrifying thing. She was clearly hurt and angry and shocked, and even if a tiny part of me wanted her to forgive Jorah, she made the right decision.

- Ramsay Bolton. Meh. I don't care about him, I don't like Theon, those are usually my least favorite scenes.


  1. that trial fight was truly brutal, and so well done.

    They did take a different track with Sansa at the Eyrie, but I think it worked. In the books, there was quite a bit of time allotted to Littlefinger's scheming and plans and getting the the Lords of the Vale to support him, Sansa revealing herself basically just shortcut all that. They will support Littlefinger because that helps her and honors Ned.

    There was a discussion between my friends about Arya's laugh, over whether it was just the overwhelming loss of another family member, or whether it was a laugh at Sandor and another one of his plans thrown to the hells.

    all in all, a very good episode, one of my favorites not just of the season, but I think overall.

    1. It was really wonderful. I'm so excited to see how the rest of the season plays out!

  3. (Comment above was me posting as my wife...)

    Thanks for posting this. I've not read the books so all the shocks are new and brutal to me. Took probably half an hour of good music before I could move on with my day!

    Loved Arya's laugh - I also took it in two ways, first as the admission of so much bad luck on her behalf for her family and secondly at another of Sandor's plans in tatters.

    Great episode. Can not wait for the next.

    1. Yes, I think she'd definitely be amused by the Hound's plans getting mucked up again.
      I can't believe there are only two episodes left in the season!

  4. These were some on the events I had been waiting for all season, even more so than Joffrey's wonderful good-bye.

    - The Oberyn and Mountain fight...ugh. It was incredibly well acted and fought. I think for me, the repetition from Oberyn felt a bit like, "My name in Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die!" And the scene itself, even in the books, just felt a little too much like the typical bady guy mistake of not finishing your nemy and thus meeting your own demise. And yet, i still loved seeing it play out and the pain in Tyrion's and Maine's faces.

    - The other major point for me is Jorah being booted by Dany. I knew it was coming and Ser Jorah has been a favorite. Could see the pain and knowing how much he truly cared and loved Dany, it was painful to see him so quickly tossed aside...but I cannot blame her for the decision.

    - Arya...her laughter...what talent. I think her laughter had two components. First, laughing at how she and the Hound came so far, only to be told, "Sorry, your aunt is dead, you lose again." The other part though is Arya slowly losing a bit of grip on her sanity perhaps...becoming less and less the young girl/lady that she is and transforming into something else all together.

    - Sansa and Littlefinger...now their story was perhaps the least interesting for me in the books and I am not sure I totally like how the show has adapted the books. I prefer the idea of her hidden and "safe". At the same time, I really wish I could just skip over all things Bolton and Reek/Theon.

    - Gilly at Mole...I really wish she was kept back at the Wall. I can only imagine that her story will NOT unfold as it had in the books and thus change for several other characters as well. Not a fan of the changes thus far but I hope that it can be salvaged.

    (It is torture having to wait until Monday evening before watching the week's episode...I always want to read your thoughts and opinions but I also don't want the spoilers...even having read the books.)

    1. Yeah, they're changing enough now that you never know what you'll be spoiled on.
      I can't believe we've covered so much ground and still have a few big points yet to hit in the last two episodes. They're going to be packed!

  12. کم نیستند پرونده های املاک مشاعی که منجر به افراز، فروش و یا تخلیه املاک مشاعی می شوند. اینگونه دعاوی بعضی مواقع به دلیل ناآگاهی افراد درباره حقوق و قوانین ملک مشاع است. در بعضی مواقع طمع افراد است که به این دعاوی دامن می زند. به همین خاطر از ابتدایی ترین موضوع در قوانین که شرح معنای ملک مشاع است خواهیم پرداخت تا به شکل های مختلف گرفتن رای افراز ملک، فروش و تخلیه املاک مشاعی برسیم.

    ملک مشاع که در قوانین کشور به آن اشاعه نیز گفته می شود، به ملکی اطلاق می شود که دارای بیش از یک مالک داشته باشد و همچنین قسمت و یا بخش مالکیت هیچ یک از مالکین نیز مشخص نباشد. در نتیجه شرکا در ذره ذره و جزء به جزء ملک سهم و حق مالکیت دارند.

    به عنوان مثال تصور کنید سه شخص علی، محمد و دانیال به صورت شریکی یک ملک را خریداری می کنند. به نحوی که در سند تنها میزان مالکیت اشخاص مشخص شده است. یعنی به ازای هر شخص دو دانگ از آن ملک اما مشخص نشده است که آن دو دانگ مربوط به کدام قسمت ملک است، آیا آشپزخانه به نام دانیال است و یا اتاق خواب؟!.

    و یا تصور کنید علی، محمد و دانیال هر سه برادرند و پدر آن ها به تازگی فوت شده است. پدر آن ها دارای ملک و املاکی بوده که به هر سه نفر آن ها ارث می رسد. اما مشخص نیست کدام قسمت از هر یک از املاک. به همین خاطر آن ها هر سه نفر با هم مالک جزء به جزء آن ملک هستند.

    نوع دادخواست و طریقه دادخواست دعاوی تخلیه املاک مشاعی بنا به اینکه به چه دلیلی قصد گرفتن حکم تخلیه ملک مشاع را داریم متفاوت است. این دعاوی می توانند به شکل دعاوی خلع ید باشند و یا به شکل دعاوی تصرف عدوانی که خود به دو شکل صورت می پذیرد، باشند. در ادامه به مفهوم کلی هر یک گونه های دعاوی و چگونگی رسیدگی به این دعاوی خواهیم پرداخت.
