Breaker of Chains - S4-E3

Davos: Westeros is not the world, Your Grace. We need to look east for ships and men. Ten-thousand skilled soldiers fight for the Golden Company.
Stannis: The Golden Company!?
Davos: They've never broken a contract.
Stannis: They're sell-swords!
Davos: We're willing to use blood magic to put you on the throne, but we're not willing to pay men to fight?

The Night Lands - S2-E2

Tyrion: I heard there was some trouble in Littlefinger's brothel the other night.
Janos Slynt: Mmhmm. Nasty business, had to be done.
Tyrion: Yes, of course. The City Watch must keep the peace. Only, I hadn't realised peace depended on killing babies.
Janos Slynt: Orders are orders.
Tyrion: Quite right. Especially the Queen's orders.
Janos Slynt: I never said they were the Queen's orders.
Tyrion: No, but who else would want to murder King Robert's bastards? She's always been a jealous woman.
Janos Slynt: You know your sister better than I do.
Tyrion: You've heard the awful rumors about my brother and sister.
Janos Slynt: I don't listen to filth.
Tyrion: That's good of you, but you have heard them. I suppose people who do believe that filth consider Robert's bastards to be better claimants to the throne than Cersei's children.
Janos Slynt: Joffrey is my king, the rest doesn't interest me.
Tyrion: I appreciate your loyalty. Tell me, when your men slaughtered Ned Stark's men in the Throne Room, did you give the order?
Janos Slynt: I did, and I would again. The man was a traitor. He tried to buy my loyalty.
Tyrion: The fool. He had no idea you were already bought.
Janos Slynt: Are you drunk!? I'll not have my honor questioned by an imp!
Tyrion: I'm not questioning your honor, Lord Janos. I'm denying its existence.
Janos Slynt: If you think I'll stand here and take this from you, dwarf...
Tyrion: "Dwarf." Hmm, you should've stopped at imp. And yes, you will stand here and take it from me. Unless you'd like to take it from my friend here [motions to Bronn]. I intend to serve as Hand of the King until my father returns from the war, and seeing as you betrayed the last Hand of the King, well I just wouldn't feel safe with you lurking about.

The Broken Man - S6-E7

Blackfish: Kingslayer.
Jaime: Blackfish.
Blackfish: I assume you're here to fulfill the vow you gave my niece. I don't see Sansa and Arya.
Jaime: I don't have them.
Blackfish: Pity. Do you wish to resume your captivity? [Jaime shakes his head "no."] Then why are you here?
Jaime: You know why I'm here. This castle belongs to House Frey. You're trespassing. In the name of King Tommen, I order you to surrender, or...
Blackfish: Or you'll kill Edmure. My nephew's marked for death no matter what. Hang him and be done with it.
Jaime: It won't stop with Edmure. You'll force me to storm the castle. Hundreds will die.
Blackfish: Hundreds of mine. Thousands of yours. If you can breach the walls.
Jaime: We'll breach them, and kill every last one of you. But if you surrender, I'll spare the lives of your men, on my honor.
Blackfish: Your "honor." Bargaining with oath-breakers is like building on quicksand.
Jaime: The war is over, Ser. Why sacrifice living men to a lost cause?
Blackfish: As long as I'm standing, the war is not over. This is my home. I was born in this castle, and I'm ready to die in it. So you can either attack, or try to starve us out. We have enough provisions for two years. Do you have two years, Kingslayer?
Jaime: You clearly have no intention of saving your men's lives. Why did you come treat with me?
Blackfish: Sieges are dull, and I wanted to see you in person, get the measure of you.
Jaime: Well now you have.
Blackfish: Aye, now I have. I'm disappointed.

Tyrion: You just sent the most powerful man in Westeros to bed without his supper.
Tywin: You're a fool if you believe he's the most powerful man in Westeros.
Tyrion: A treasonous statement. Joffrey is king.
Tywin: You really think a crown gives you power?

Ned Stark: Where did you hear this?
Arya Stark: In the dungeons, near the dragon skulls.
Ned Stark: What were you doing in the dungeons?
Arya Stark: Chasing a cat.

The Kingsroad - S1-E2

Robb Stark: Good. Next time I see you, you'll be all in black.
Jon Snow: It was always my color.

Tyrion Lannister: Speaking for the grotesques, I'd have to disagree. Death is so final, whereas life... Life is full of possibilities.

Eddard Stark: Winter is coming.

A Golden Crown - S1-E6

Trivia: The horse heart that Daenerys eats was actually made of gelatin, and genuinely tasted dreadful - her physical revulsion at eating it is real. It had dyed pasta to simulate veins, and was injected with fake sugary blood, which attracted flies. The blood was so sticky and ended up covering Emilia Clarke to such an extent that after filming it glued her to the toilet seat.

Kissed by Fire - S3-E5

Question: Although Tywin is Cersei's father, she is Queen Regent. Isn't she still in a higher place of power than him, and able to refuse to marry Loras?

Answer: As Hand of the King, Tywin is the second most authoritative person in Westeros behind only the king. The Hand's duties include sitting on The Iron Throne and dispensing order, justice and judgment, similar to what Ned Stark did in the Season 1 episode "A Golden Crown" while then-king Robert Baratheon was out hunting. It's also worth pointing out that Tywin's enormous wealth makes him the de facto most powerful person in Westeros, which he demonstrates in the Season 3 episode "Mhysa" when he sends King Joffrey to bed without his supper and remarks to Tyrion "You're a fool if you believe he's the most powerful man in Westeros. Do you really think the crown gives you power?"

Answer: The position of Queen Regent is largely a cipher as the Hand of the King is the actual regent for the king, handling day to day affairs and heading the small council. Tywin is still the leader of House Lannister and commands the army. Cersei's power derives from him, mostly. This is why she cannot truly counter Tyrion when he is acting Hand of the King or Master of Coin, both given by their father. She only starts acting like a queen when Tywin is dead.
