HOUSE OF THE DRAGON, S01E01 “THE HEIRS OF THE DRAGON” SENTENCE STARTERS
❛ Welcome back. I trust your ride was pleasant. ❜
❛ Try not to look too relieved. ❜
❛ I believe I’m quite content as a spectator, thank you. ❜
❛ I’d rather serve as a knight and ride to battle and glory. ❜
❛ We have royal wombs, you and I. The childbed is our battlefield. ❜
❛ Now take a bath. You stink of dragon. ❜
❛ Well, that sounds suspiciously like good news. ❜
❛ And are we meant to weep for dead pirates? ❜
❛ The crown has heard your report, and takes it under advisement. ❜
❛ You must understand that these things are mere estimations. ❜
❛ We have no way of predicting the sex of the child. ❜
❛ Court is so dreadfully boring. ❜
❛ I bought you something. ❜
❛ You’re always like this when you’re worried. ❜
❛ I want to fly with you on dragonback, see the great wonders across the Narrow Sea, and eat only cake. ❜
❛ You aren’t worried about your position? ❜
❛ I like this position. It’s quite comfortable. ❜
❛ Bad humors of the mind can adversely affect the body. ❜
❛ Cauterization would be a wise course of treatment. ❜
❛ You spend more time in that bath than I do on the throne. ❜
❛ This is the only place I can find comfort these days. ❜
❛ After this miserable pregnancy I wouldn’t be surprised if I hatched an actual dragon. ❜
❛ You do understand nothing will cause the babe to grow a cock if it does not already possess one? ❜
❛ I’m certain of it. I’ve never been more certain of anything. ❜
❛ The dream. It was clearer than a memory. ❜
❛ I know it is my duty to provide you an heir, and I’m sorry if I have failed you in that. I am. ❜
❛ Carry on. You were saying something about my impunity. ❜
❛ Making a public spectacle of wanton brutality is hardly in line with our laws. ❜
❛ Our city should be safe for all its people. ❜
❛ You know how my brother makes sport of provoking you. Must you indulge him? ❜
❛ Now, I’m fairly certain I can win these games. Having your favor would all but assure it. ❜
❛ She’s fighting with all her might, but it may not be enough. ❜
❛ And the day grows ugly. ❜
❛ These knights are as green as summer grass. None have known real war. ❜
❛ We must either act now or leave it with the gods. ❜
❛ Don’t be scared. ❜
❛ This is the last thing any of us wish to discuss at this dark hour, but I consider the matter urgent. ❜
❛ Despite how difficult this time is, Your Grace, I feel it important the succession be firmly in place for the stability of the realm. ❜
❛ What are you saying? My brother would murder me, take my crown? ❜
❛ The gods have yet to make a man who lacks the patience for absolute power. ❜
❛ My wife and son are dead! I will not sit here and suffer crows that come to feast on their corpses! ❜
❛ All I wanted was for someone to say that they were sorry for what happened to me. ❜
❛ But dream and pray as they all might, it seems I’m not so easily replaced. ❜
❛ The gods give just as the gods take away. ❜
❛ You cut the image of the conqueror. ❜
❛ We must all mourn in our own way. ❜
❛ I have only ever defended you! Yet everything I’ve given you, you’ve thrown back in my face. ❜
❛ I’ve only ever spoken the truth. ❜
❛ He doesn’t protect you. I would. ❜
❛ I have decided to name a new heir. ❜
❛ When you look at the dragons, what do you see? ❜
❛ The idea that we control the dragons is an illusion. They’re a power man should never have trifled with. ❜
❛ I’m sorry. I have wasted the years since you were born wanting for a son. ❜
❛ You are the very best of your mother. ❜
❛ Promise me this. Promise me. ❜
