“It was that white cloak that soiled me, not the other way around.”
Game of Thrones Meme ✖ 1/3 COLORS ✖ WHITE
“You are not old enough to have known Aerys Targaryen…”
Brienne would not hear it. “Aerys was mad and cruel, but he was still king. And you had sworn to protect him. It is a rare gift to be a knight, even more so a knight of the Kingsguard. A gift you scorned and soiled.”
“I earned my knighthood. Nothing was given to me. It was that white cloak that soiled me, not the other way around. So spare me your envy. It was the gods who neglected to give you a cock, not me.”
On Cleos’s Beliefs:
What do we have here, an honest muttonhead or a lickspittle?
Ser Cleos prattled blithely on. “Any man who’d believe that a Sworn Brother of the Kingsguard would harm a child does not know the meaning of honor.”
On Cleos’s Reasoning:
“Lady Brienne had those lies from Catelyn Stark, no doubt. The Starks cannot hope to defeat you with swords, ser, so now they make war with poisoned words.”
They did defeat me with swords, you chinless cretin.
On Cleos’s Family:
Cleos was his Aunt Genna’s son by that dullard Emmon Frey, who had lived in terror of Lord Tywin Lannister since the day he wed his sister. When Lord Walder Frey had brought the Twins into the war on the side of Riverrun, Ser Emmon had chosen his wife’s allegiance over his father’s. Casterly Rock got the worst of that bargain, Jaime reflected.
On Cleos’s Personality:
Ser Cleos looked like a weasel, fought like a goose, and had the courage of an especially brave ewe.
On Cleos’s Sleeping Habits:
By midday, Ser Cleos had fallen asleep. His snores sounded like ducks mating.
On Cleos’s Death:
“Have no fear, I am amply provisioned in cousins.”
On the circumstances of Cleos’s Death
“Who else? The last I saw of cousin Cleos, his palfrey was using his head to plow a furrow. Though I suppose we ought to find him. He is a Lannister of sorts.”
Jaime, don’t you think I want it as much as you do? It makes no matter who they wed me to, I want you at my side, I want you in my bed, I want you inside me. Nothing has changed between us. […] I want to be your wife, we belong to each other, but it can never be, Jaime. We are brother and sister.

[1/2] Jaime Lannister’s Kingsguard Armour
“Why did you take the oath?” she demanded. “Why don the white cloak if you meant to betray all it stood for?”
Why? What could he say that she might possible understand? “I was a boy. Fifteen. It was a great honor for one so young.”
“That is no answer,” she said scornfully.
You would not like the truth. He had joined the Kingsguard for love, of course.
