Motivational Quotes: “Sheathe that sword, you arrogant pup.”

I’m sort of torn between trying to cultivate good, creative habits that don’t revolve around Game of Thrones, and wondering when the fuck we’ll get some photos/reports of filming at Riverrun. 

For now, I’ll fill in the gaps with another Jaime quote from A Storm of Swords. The “arrogant pup” in this case is Loras Tyrell, who is picking a fight with Brienne (a very stupid idea) because he thinks she killed Renly. Jaime is having none of that bullshit. He’s just gotten back to the Red Keep and the other Kingsguard knights, especially Loras, don’t recognize him. 

“I am the Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, you arrogant pup. Your commander, so long as you wear that white cloak. Now sheathe your bloody sword, or I’ll take it from you and shove it up some place even Renly never found.”

Why don’t we get to see Jaime calling anyone an “arrogant pup” on TV?

  1. The quote is also one of the few places in the books that point out the Renly/Loras relationship. Catelyn certainly had no idea, and she was our main Renly POV observer.
