Quotes:
From "Game of Thrones: The Bear and the Maiden Fair (#3.7)" (2013)
Joffrey Baratheon: Tell me about the Targaryen girl in the east. And her dragons.
Tywin Lannister: Where did you hear about this?
Joffrey Baratheon: Is it true?
Tywin Lannister: Apparently so.
Joffrey Baratheon: Don't you think we ought to do something about it?
Tywin Lannister: When I was Hand of the King under your father's predecessor, the skulls of all the Targaryen dragons were kept in this room. And the skull of the last of them was right here. It was the size of an apple.
Joffrey Baratheon: And the biggest was the size of a carriage.
Tywin Lannister: Yes, and the creature to whom it belonged died 300 years ago. Curiosities on the far side of the world are no threat to us.
Joffrey Baratheon: But how do we know that these dragons are just curiosities and not the beasts that brought the whole world to heel?
Tywin Lannister: Because we have been told as much by the many experts who serve the realm by counseling the King on matters about which he knows nothing.
