The words of Cersei Lannister to Lord Eddard Stark in season one of Game of Thrones.
These cutthroat words would echo throughout eight seasons, as we watch characters we love and hate come and go, whether by the swing of a sword, fire of a dragon or poisoned by a character who plays a better game.
Game of Thrones has provided us with many memorable quotes from its iconic characters over 73 episodes.
