Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2 includes one of the most epic and unexpected events in the whole of GoT: the purple wedding. Despite this, the episode didn’t have as many great quotes as we’ve come to expect; if this is your first time reading one of our quote articles be sure to check out more as 4 quotes is a measly affair for a Game of Thrones episode. That said, here are the standout quotes from Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2.
1. “How can I protect the king when I can hardly wipe my own arse?” – Jaime Lannister
Jaime opens up to Tyrion about his fighting situation, saying that all of his instincts are gone when he uses his left. As a member of the Kingsguard, who are sworn to protect the king, this creates problems, as Jaime acknowledges in this quote.
2. “There’s this knight, uh, Leygood, got thunderbolts on his shield? Right here is where I fuck his wife. She’s a screamer that one. If they don’t hear her, they won’t hear us” – Bronn
Jaime asks if the place Bronn has taken them to to practice sword fighting is safe and out of view enough for his ineptitude with a blade to remain secret. Bronn then tells him this story which sets his mind at rest.
3. “People who spend their money on this sort of nonsense tend not to have it for long” – Tywin Lannister

4 .“Because if someone follows me without an invitation, I’m the last person they ever follow” – Bronn
Tyrion gets himself worked up after he asks Bronn to make sure Shae boards the ship he arranged to take her to Pentos to keep her safe, and questions him on how he’s sure no one knows where she is. Bronn tells him that it’s only him, Tyrion and Varys who know where she is and there wasn’t a chance of him being followed because, well, see quote.
