"Game of Thrones" The Watchers on the Wall (TV Episode 2014) Poster

Owen Teale: Alliser Thorne


  • Alliser Thorne : You can say it if you like. We should've sealed the tunnel while we had the chance. Like you suggested.

    Jon Snow : It was a difficult decision either way, ser.


    Alliser Thorne : Do you know what leadership means, Lord Snow? It means that the person in charge gets second-guessed by every clever little twat with a mouth. But if he starts second-guessing himself, that's the end. For him... for the clever little twats... for everyone. This is not the end, not for us. Not if you lot do your duty for however long it takes to beat them back. And then you get to go on hating me, and I get to go on wishing your wildling whore had finished the job.

  • Alliser Thorne : Brothers! A hundred generations have defended this castle! It's never fallen before, she will not fall tonight! Those are Thenns at our walls! They eat the flesh of the men they kill! Do you want to fill the belly of a Thenn, tonight? Tonight, we fight! And when the sun rises, I promise you, Castle Black will stand! The Night's Watch will stand! With me now! Now with me!

  • [the wildling army emerges from the trees beyond the Wall] 

    Alliser Thorne : Archers, nock! Everyone else, hold!

    [the archers nock arrows to their bows. Grenn and Edd lose their grip on a frozen barrel, and it tumbles off the edge of the Wall. Thorne grimaces at the waste of ammunition] 

    Alliser Thorne : I said "nock and hold," you cunts! Does "nock" mean "draw"?

    Men of the Night's Watch : No, ser!

    Alliser Thorne : Does fucking "hold" mean fucking "drop"?

    Men of the Night's Watch : No, ser!

    Alliser Thorne : You all plan to die here tonight?

    Men of the Night's Watch : No, ser!

    Alliser Thorne : That's very good to hear! Draw!
