The episode title refers to the swords that were reforged at Tywin's order from Eddard Stark's greatsword Ice. See more »
The process shown at the beginning of the episode is called casting, and cannot be used to make swords - they'd be too brittle; forging is a much more elaborate and lengthy process. If the secret of the steel is lost, as both Tywin and Jaime mention, it is impossible to just melt an old sword to make a new one. It is necessary to cut the old sword into parts and reforge it, and to know the exact method (i.e. "secret") to do that, and even then, it'd be a totally different steel. See more »
[after rejecting one oversized necklace after the other]
The Margaery Tyrell who walks into the Sept a fortnight from now, will inspire a thousand songs. How sad it will be if she's wearing rubbish like that.
Perhaps I should just let Joffrey choose it for me. End up with a string of dead sparrow heads around my neck.
You watch that. Even here, with me.

A classic episode and a great start to Season 4
Two Swords not only does a great job introducing new characters, but also continuing the story lines for the Stark and Lannister with a few twists and turns. There aren't any faults I have with this episode because it's a classic and it's a great start to Season 4.
The performances are still great, the storyline/script is even more fresh, the pacing is superb and doesn't drag, the relationships continue to shine, the scenery is gorgeous, the CGI graphics is really solid (even the look of the dragon in Daenerys' story-arc, which looks pretty cool), the action is really interesting, the music score is still beautiful, and the directing is terrific. So, overall, a great start to the fourth season. :)
