"Game of Thrones: The Pointy End (#1.8)" (2011)
Catelyn Stark: If you lose, your father dies, your sisters die, we die.
Robb Stark: Well, that makes it simple then.
Catelyn Stark: I suppose it does.

Robb Stark: Treason? Sansa wrote this.
Maester Luwin: It is your sister's hand but the Queen's words. Your summoned to King's Landing to swear fealty to the new King.
Robb Stark: Joffrey puts my father in chains, now he wants his ass kissed.
Maester Luwin: This is a royal command, my Lord. If you should refuse to obey...
Robb Stark: I won't refuse. If His Grace summons me to go to King's Landing, I'll go to King's Landing. But not alone. Call the banners.
Maester Luwin: All of them, my Lord?
Robb Stark: They've all sworn to defend my father, have they not?
Maester Luwin: They have.
Robb Stark: Now we'll see what the words are worth.

Theon Greyjoy: Are you afraid?
[Robb's hand is shaking]
Robb Stark: I must be.
Theon Greyjoy: Good.
Robb Stark: Why is that good?
Theon Greyjoy: It means your not stupid.

Robb Stark: There must always be a Stark in Winterfell. Until I return that will be you. You are not to leave the castle walls while we are gone, do you understand? Listen to Maester Luwin. Look after your little brother.
Bran Stark: I will.
Robb Stark: I'll send messages whenever I can. If you don't hear from me, don't be scared. Til I return.

Robb Stark: Tell Lord Tywin, winter is coming for him. Twenty thousand northerners marching south to find out if he really does shit gold.


"Game of Thrones: The Rains of Castamere (#3.9)" (2013)
Robb Stark: All men should keep their word, kings most of all.

[while the Red Wedding massacre is performed, Walder Frey watches Robb, severely injured, crawling to his dying wife Talisa]
Walder Frey: [taunting] The King in the North arises...
[Robb cradles his dead wife. Catelyn grabs a knife and then drags Lord Walder's wife Joyeuse out from under the table and holds the knife at her throat]
Catelyn Stark: Lord Walder! Lord Walder, enough! Let it end!
[pause]
Catelyn Stark: Please. He is my son, my first son. Let him go and I swear we will forget this. I swear it, by the old gods and new, we will take no vengeance.
Walder Frey: You already swore me one oath right here in my castle. You swore by all the gods your son would marry my daughter!
Catelyn Stark: Take me for a hostage, but let Robb go!
[Catelyn pleads to Robb]
Catelyn Stark: Robb, get up, get up and walk out. Please, PLEASE!
[Robb looks at his dead wife]
Walder Frey: And why would I let him do that?
Catelyn Stark: On my honour as a Tully; on my honour as a Stark, let him go or I will CUT your wife's throat!
[Robb slowly stands up]
Walder Frey: [smiles nastily] I'll find another.
[Catelyn turns to Robb, seemingly accepting defeat]
Robb Stark: Mother...
[Roose walks up to Robb]
Roose Bolton: The Lannisters send their regards.
[Roose stabs Robb in the heart as Catelyn watches in despair. She cries in agony as Robb falls to the ground dead, and then slits Joyeuse's throat in retaliation. She stands in silence and shock, while Black Walder Frey approaches her from behind and slits her throat. She collapses, dead]

Robb Stark: [feeling Talisa's belly] Boy or girl?
Talisa Stark: I don't know. But if it's a boy, I know what we should name him.
Robb Stark: Oh, do you? It seems to me the father should have some say in his son's naming.
Talisa Stark: Eddard.
[Robb looks at Talisa serenely]
Talisa Stark: Don't you want to teach little Ned Stark how to ride horses?
Robb Stark: I do.


"Game of Thrones: Walk of Punishment (#3.3)" (2013)
Edmure Tully: [to Robb] If I may nephew, I encountered a situation with one of my lieutenants at the Stone Mill which may have some bearing...
Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully: Why don't you shut your mouth about the damned mill? And don't call him "nephew". He is your king.
Edmure Tully: Robb knows I meant no disr...
Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully: You're lucky I'm not your king. I wouldn't let you wave your blunders around like a victory flag.
Edmure Tully: My blunder sent Tywin's mad dog scurrying back to Casterly Rock with his tail between his legs. I think King Robb understands we're not going to win this war if he's the only one winning any battles. There's glory to go around!
Robb Stark: It's not about glory. Your instructions were to wait for him to come to you.
Edmure Tully: I seized an opportunity.
Robb Stark: What value was the mill?
Edmure Tully: The Mountain was garrisoned across the river from it.
Robb Stark: Is he there now?
Edmure Tully: Of course not. We took the fight to him! He could not withstand us.
Robb Stark: I wanted to draw the Mountain into the west, into our country where we could surround him and kill him. I wanted him to chase us, which he would have done because he is a mad dog without a strategic thought in his head. I could have that head on a spike by now. Instead, I have a mill.

Robb Stark: [to Edmure] Do you think he'll sue for peace because we have his father's brother's great-grandsons?


"Game of Thrones: Baelor (#1.9)" (2011)
Robb Stark: I sent two thousand men to their graves today.
Theon Greyjoy: The bards will sing songs of their sacrifice.
Robb Stark: Aye, but the dead won't hear them.

Jaime Lannister: We could end this war right now, boy, save thousands of lives. You fight for the Starks, I fight for the Lannisters. Swords or lances, teeth, nails - choose your weapons, and let's end this here and now.
Robb Stark: If we do it your way, Kingslayer, you'd win. We're not doing it your way.


"Game of Thrones: Fire and Blood (#1.10)" (2011)
Theon Greyjoy: Am I your brother, now and always?
Robb Stark: Now and always.
[Theon draws his sword and kneels before Robb]
Theon Greyjoy: My sword is yours, in victory and defeat, from this day until my last day.

Robb Stark: [talking about the Lannisters] I'm going to kill them all!


"Game of Thrones: Kissed by Fire (#3.5)" (2013)
[the bloody corpses of Martyn and Willem Lannister are laid out on the floor in front of Robb at Riverrun's main meeting room. Talisa gapes at the bodies]
Robb Stark: [to Brynden] Bring them in.
[Brynden opens the door. Guards enter, bringing Rickard Karstark and his men in chains. Rickard stares at Robb defiantly]
Robb Stark: Is that all of them? It took five of you to murder two unarmed squires.
Rickard Karstark: Not murder, Your Grace. Vengeance.
Robb Stark: [quietly] Vengeance? Those boys didn't kill your sons. I saw Harrion die on the battlefield, and Torrhen...
Rickard Karstark: Was strangled by the Kingslayer. They were his kin.
Robb Stark: [shouts angrily] They were boys! Look at them.
Rickard Karstark: [glances at Catelyn] Tell your mother to look at them. She killed them as much as I.
Robb Stark: My mother had nothing to do with this. This was your treason.
Rickard Karstark: It's treason to free your enemies. In war, you kill your enemies. Did your father not teach you that, boy?
[Brynden strikes Rickard. Rickard falls on his knees]
Robb Stark: Leave him.
Rickard Karstark: [while kneeling] Aye, Leave me to the king. He wants to give me a scolding before he sets me free.
[Rickard stands]
Rickard Karstark: [scornfully] That's how he deals with treason. Our King in the North. Or should I call him "the King who lost the North"?
Robb Stark: [quietly] Escort Lord Karstark to the dungeon. Hang the rest.
[one of the Karstark men begs for mercy]
Young Captive: Mercy, sire! I didn't kill anyone. I only watched for the guards.
Robb Stark: This one was only the watcher. Hang him last so he can watch the others die.
Young Captive: [while being dragged outside] Please! Please, no. They made me do it! They made me! They made me!
[Rickard and his men are taken away]

[Robb, Catelyn, Talisa and Edmure discuss what to do with Rickard Karstark]
Edmure Tully: Word of this can't leave Riverrun. They were Tywin Lannister's nephews. The Lannisters pay their debts. They never stop talking about it.
Robb Stark: Would you make me a liar as well as a murderer?
Edmure Tully: It wouldn't be lying. We will bury them and remain silent until the war is done.
Robb Stark: I'm not fighting for justice if I don't serve justice to murderers in my ranks, no matter how highborn. He has to die.
Catelyn Stark: The Karstarks are Northmen. They won't forgive the killing of their lord.
Talisa Maegyr: Your mother's right. If you do this, the Karstarks will abandon you.
Robb Stark: You tended to their wounds. You brought them supper. Now they're dead.
Talisa Maegyr: And more boys will keep dying until this war is over. You need Karstark men to end it.
Catelyn Stark: Spare his life. Keep him as a hostage.
Edmure Tully: [nods] A hostage. Tell the Karstarks that as long as they remain loyal, he will not be harmed.
[everyone watches Robb, waiting for his decree. At last he decides to execute Rickard. Rickard is brought out to the courtyard of Riverrun to be executed during a heavy rainstorm. He looks at Robb defiantly]
Rickard Karstark: The blood of the First Men flows through my veins as much as yours, boy. I fought the Mad King for your father. I fought Joffrey for you. We are kin - Stark and Karstark.
Robb Stark: That didn't stop you from betraying me. And it won't save you now.
Rickard Karstark: I don't want it to save me. I want it to haunt you to the end of your days.
Robb Stark: Kneel, my lord.
[Rickard lies on the block]
Robb Stark: Rickard Karstark, Lord of Karhold, here in sight of gods and men, I sentence you to die. Would you speak a final word?
Rickard Karstark: Kill me, and be cursed. You are no king of mine.
[Robb beheads Rickard. Then he drops his sword and walks away]


"Game of Thrones: The Prince of Winterfell (#2.8)" (2012)
[after learning that Catelyn has freed Jaime Lannister, Robb and Rickard Karstark confront her in the tent where she is kept prisoner]
Robb Stark: Tell me this isn't true.
[Catelyn looks at Robb, but says nothing]
Robb Stark: Why?
Catelyn Stark: [quietly] For the girls.
Robb Stark: You betrayed me.
Catelyn Stark: Robb...
Robb Stark: No! You knew I would not allow it, and you did it anyway.
Catelyn Stark: Bran and Rickon are captives in Winterfell. Sansa and Arya are captives in King's Landing. I have five children, and only one of them is free.
Rickard Karstark: [disdainfully] I lost one son fighting by you son's side. I lost another to the Kingslayer, strangled with a chain. You committed a treason, because your children are prisoners? I would carve out my heart and offer it to the Father, if he would let my sons wake from their graves and step into a prison cell!
Catelyn Stark: I grieve for your sons, My Lord...
Rickard Karstark: [furiously] I don't want your grief. I want my vengeance. And you stole it from me!
Catelyn Stark: Killing Jaime Lannister would not buy life to your children. But returning him to King's Landing may buy life for mine.
Robb Stark: Jaime Lannister has played you for a fool. You have weakened our position; you brought discord into our camp; and you did all behind my back.
Robb Stark: [to the guards] Make sure she's guarded day and night!
Catelyn Stark: [stands] Robb...
Robb Stark: [turns to the guard, ignoring his mother] How many men did we send on pursuit of the Kingslayer?
Stark Guard: Forty, Your Grace.
Rickard Karstark: Send another forty, with our fastest horses.
[Robb and Rickard Karstark leave the tent]
Catelyn Stark: Robb...
[Robb continues walking away, ignoring his mother. She lowers her head in despair]

Robb Stark: Send word to your son. Any Ironborn who surrender will be allowed to return safely to their homes.
Roose Bolton: A touch of mercy is a virtue, Your Grace. Too much...
Robb Stark: [interrupting] Any Ironborn with the exception of Theon Greyjoy.He betrayed our cause. He betrayed me. And we will hunt him down no matter where he runs.
Roose Bolton: I expect his countrymen will turn on him the minute they hear the offer.


"Game of Thrones: The Old Gods and the New (#2.6)" (2012)
[Robb Stark receives news that Theon Greyjoy has betrayed him and seized Winterfell]
Robb Stark: This cannot be true.
Roose Bolton: We've had ravens from White Harbour, Barrowtown and the Dreadfort. I'm afraid it is true.
Robb Stark: Why? Why would Theon...?
Roose Bolton: Because the Greyjoys are treasonous whores.
Robb Stark: My brothers...
Roose Bolton: We've heard nothing of them... but Rodrik Cassel is dead.
Catelyn Stark: [angrily] I told you never trust a Greyjoy!
Robb Stark: I must go north at once.
[Robb stands and starts to walk out of the tent. Roose Bolton approaches him]
Roose Bolton: There's still a war to win, Your Grace!
Robb Stark: [angrily] How can I call myself 'King' if I can't hold my own castle? How can I ask men to follow me if...?
Roose Bolton: [firmly] You are a king! And that means you don't have to do everything yourself.
Catelyn Stark: Let me go and talk to Theon.
Robb Stark: There will be no talk. He will die for this!
Roose Bolton: Theon holds the castle with a skeleton crew. Let me send word to my bastard at the Dreadfort; he can raise a few hundred men and retake Winterfell before the new moon. We have the Lannisters on the run; if you march all the way back north now, you'll lose what you gained. My boy would be honoured to bring you Prince Theon's head.
Robb Stark: Tell your son Bran and Rickon's safety is paramount. And Theon... I want him brought to me alive. I want to look him in the eye and ask him 'Why?'... and then I will take his head myself!


"Game of Thrones: The North Remembers (#2.1)" (2012)
[Robb enters Jaime's cage]
Jaime Lannister: King in the North. I keep expecting you to leave me in one castle or another for safekeeping, but you've dragged me along from camp to camp. Have you grown fond of me, Stark? Is that it? I've never seen you with a girl.
Robb Stark: If I left you with one of my bannermen, your father would know within a fortnight. My bannerman would receive a raven with a message: "Release my son and you'll be rich beyond your dreams. Refuse and your house will be destroyed, root and stem."
Jaime Lannister: You don't trust the loyalty of the men following you into battle?
Robb Stark: Oh, I trust them with my life. Just not with yours.
Jaime Lannister: Smart boy. What's wrong? Don't like being called "boy"?
[he adopts a mocking frown and tone]
Jaime Lannister: Insulted?
[Robb glances sternly at a point behind Jaime's shoulder. A deep growl is heard off-screen. Jaime struggles to turn his head to see what made the noise]
Robb Stark: You insult yourself, Kingslayer. You've been defeated by a boy. You're held captive by a boy. Perhaps you'll be killed by a boy.
[Jaime tries not to let his fear show as Robb's direwolf, Grey Wind, stalks into the cage]
Robb Stark: Stannis Baratheon sent ravens to all the high lords of Westeros. King Joffrey Baratheon is neither a true king, nor a true Baratheon. He's your bastard son.
Jaime Lannister: Well, if that's true, Stannis is the rightful king. How convenient for him.
Robb Stark: My father learned the truth. That's why you had him executed.
Jaime Lannister: I was your prisoner when Ned Stark lost his head.
Robb Stark: Your son killed him so the world wouldn't learn who fathered him, and you... you pushed my brother from a window because he saw you with the queen.
Jaime Lannister: [still trying not to let his fear show] You have proof? Or do you want to trade gossip like a couple of fishwives?
Robb Stark: I'm sending one of your cousins down to King's Landing with my peace terms.
Jaime Lannister: You think my father's going to negotiate with you? You don't know him very well.
Robb Stark: No... but he's starting to know me.
Jaime Lannister: Three victories don't make you a conqueror.
Robb Stark: It's better than three defeats.
[Robb turns and walks out of the cage. Jaime shuts his eyes as Grey Wind growls threateningly and lunges at his face. When Jaime opens his eyes again, he is unharmed and alone]


"Game of Thrones: Valar Morghulis (#2.10)" (2012)
[Catelyn tries in vain to dissuade Robb from marrying Talisa, but he does not listen to her]
Robb Stark: My father is dead. And the only parent I have left has no right to call anyone reckless.


"Game of Thrones: Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things (#1.4)" (2011)
[Tyrion gives Bran a drawing of saddle which will enable him to ride a horse]
Bran Stark: Will I really be able to ride?
Tyrion Lannister: [nods] You will. On horseback you will be as tall as any of them.
Robb Stark: [suspiciously] Is this some kind of trick? Why do you want to help him?
Tyrion Lannister: I have a tender spot in my heart for cripples and bastards and broken things.
