Missandei: You stand in the presence of Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, rightful heir to the Iron Throne, rightful Queen of the Andals and the First Men, Protector of the Seven Kingdoms, the Mother of Dragons, the Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, the Breaker of Chains.

Jon: Um...right. Hi, I’m Jon Snow. King in the North.

Daenerys: Why aren’t you bending the knee?

Jon: Excuse me, madam?

Daenerys: It’s ‘Your Grace’, and the knee. You’re supposed to bend the knee!

Jon: I, uh...I didn’t hear anything about that from the lett—


Tyrion (looking downward): Oh shit, I knew I forgot something...I was so busy making sure I put in the “all dwarves are bastards” line that I forgot to mention...he’s supposed to bend the knee?

Daenerys: Goddamn it Tyrion. Now I look like an IDIOT!

(quick footsteps can be heard nearing the throne room. Varys arrives, short of breath.)

Varys: The castle is too big. If I walk, the show will be over.

Jon (picking up large thick tome in the corner): Have you gotta bathroom? I’ve had to wee since we made land.
