"Game of Thrones: The Winds of Winter (#6.10)" (2016)
Daenerys Targaryen: Tyrion Lannister, I name you Hand of the Queen.

Daenerys Targaryen: If I'm going to rule in Westeros, I'll need to make alliances. The best way to make alliances is with marriage.
Daario Naharis: Who are you marrying this time?
Daenerys Targaryen: I don't know. Maybe no one.
Daario Naharis: But you need to lure all the noble houses to the table? Are you a queen or fish bait?
Daenerys Targaryen: I can't bring a lover to Westeros.
Daario Naharis: A king wouldn't think twice about it.
Daenerys Targaryen: So that's what you want? To be my mistress?
Daario Naharis: I'm not proud. I don't care what perfumed aristocrat sits beside you in the throne room. I don't want a crown. I want you. I love you. And I make you happy. You know I do. Bring me with you. Let me fight for you.
Daenerys Targaryen: I can't.
Daario Naharis: The dwarf told you to do this?
Daenerys Targaryen: No one tells me to do anything.
Daario Naharis: Clever fellow. Can't argue with his logic. I'm no use to you over there.

Tyrion Lannister: You have your armies, you have your ships, you have your dragons. Everything you've ever wanted since you were old enough to want anything, it's all yours for the taking. Are you afraid?
[Daenerys nods]
Tyrion Lannister: Good. You're in the great game now. And the great game's terrifying. The only people who aren't afraid of failure are madmen like your father.
Daenerys Targaryen: Do you know what frightens me? I said farewell to a man who loves me. A man I thought I cared for. And I felt nothing. Just impatient to get on with it.
Tyrion Lannister: He wasn't the first to love you and he won't be the last.

Daenerys Targaryen: [Our father's were evil men, all of us. They left the world worse than they found it. We're not going to do that, we're going to leave the world better than we found it]

Daenerys Targaryen: Well, you have completely failed to console me.
Tyrion Lannister: For what it's worth, I've been a cynic for as long as I can remember. Everyone's always asking me to believe in things. Family, gods, kings, myself. It was often tempting until I saw where belief got people. so I said, "no, thank you," to belief. And yet, here I am. I believe in you. It's embarrassing, really. I'd swear you my sword, but I don't actually own a sword.
Daenerys Targaryen: It's your counsel I need.
Tyrion Lannister: It's yours. Now and always.


"Game of Thrones: Battle of the Bastards (#6.9)" (2016)
Daenerys Targaryen: [to Razdal mo Eraz] My reign has just begun.

Tyrion Lannister: There are more than 100 ships in the Iron Fleet.
Theon Greyjoy: There are and Euron is building more. He's going to offer them to you.
Daenerys Targaryen: So why shouldn't I wait for him?
Theon Greyjoy: The Iron Fleet isn't all he's bringing. He also wants to give you...
[trailing off]
Yara Greyjoy: ...his big cock, I think he said. Euron's offer is also an offer of marriage, you see. You won't get one without the other.
Daenerys Targaryen: And I imagine your offer is free of any marriage demands?
Yara Greyjoy: I never demand, but I'm up for anything really.

Tyrion Lannister: [Explosions] Despite appearances, I think you'll find the city's on the rise.
[explosions]
Tyrion Lannister: Perhaps we should take shelter.
Daenerys Targaryen: The city's on the rise?
Tyrion Lannister: Meereen is strong. Commerce has returned to the markets. The people are behind you.
[closer explosion]
Tyrion Lannister: Well, not all the people, of course.

Daenerys Targaryen: So I should welcome you into my service because you murdered members of your own family?
Tyrion Lannister: Into your service? Your grace, we have only just met. It's too soon to know if you deserve my service.

Daenerys Targaryen: Lannister, Targaryen, Baratheon, Stark, Tyrell they're all just spokes on a wheel. This ones on top, then that ones on top and on and on it spins crushing those on the ground.

Every man, woman, and child shall be given as much food, clothing, and property as they can carry as payment for their years of servitude. Reject this gift and I shall show you no mercy.
Razdal mo Eraz: You are mad. We are not Astapor or Qarth. We are Yunkai and we have powerful friends; friends who would take great pleasure in destroying you. Those who survive, we shall enslave once more. Perhaps we'll make a slave of you as well!
[Razdal stands. One of the dragons menaces him]
Razdal mo Eraz: You swore me safe conduct.

Are you with me, now and always?

Daenerys Targaryen: Astapor?
Jorah Mormont: We cannot stay here.
Daenerys Targaryen: They have my dragons. A mother does not flee without her children.
Jorah Mormont: They're not your children. I know they call you the Mother of Dragons and I know you love them, but you didn't grow them in your womb, they didn't suckle at your breasts. They are dragons, Khaleesi, and if we stay in Qarth we'll die.
Daenerys Targaryen: You should sail to Astapor, I'm sure you'll be safe there.

Jorah Mormont: ...Until my last breath, I will remember. After I have forgotten my mother's face...
Daenerys Targaryen: ...They are my children. And they are the only children I will ever have... Take me to them.
