You're all making the same five or six jokes.Theon Greyjoy: It was a long time ago.Tyrion Lannister: It was. And how have things been going for you since then? Not so well I gather. Can't imagine you would have murdered the Stark boys if things had been going well.Theon Greyjoy: I didn't murder the Stark boys. But I did things that were just as bad, or worse.Yara Grejoy: And he paid for them.Tyrion Lannister: Doesn't seem like it. He's still alive. It was complicated for you I'm sure, growing up at Winterfell. Never quite knowing who you were. But then, we all live complicated lives, don't we?Daenerys Targaryen: You've brought us a hundred ships from the Iron fleet, with men to sail them. In return I expect you want me to support your claim to the throne of the Iron Islands?Theon Grejoy: Not my claim. [nods his head to Yara] Hers.Daenerys Targaryen: What's wrong with you?Theon Greyjoy: I'm not fit to rule.Tyrion Lannister: We can agree upon that at least.Daenerys Targaryen: Has the Iron Islands ever had a queen before?Yara Grejoy: No more than Westeros.Theon Grejoy: Our uncle Euron returned home after a long absence.

He would have murdered us if we'd stayed.Daenerys Targaryen: Lord Tyrion tells me your father was a terrible king.Yara Grejoy: You and I have that in common.Daenerys Targaryen: [after a short pause] We do. And both murdered by a usurper aswell. [turns to Tyrion] Will their ships be enough?Tyrion Lannister: With the former masters' fleet, possibly. Barely.

[to Daenerys] He's going to offer them to you.Daenerys Targaryen: So why shouldn't I wait for him?Theon Greyjoy: The Iron fleet isn't all he's bringing. He also wants to give you-..Yara Grejoy: [scornfully] His big cock, I think he said.

The others are free to ask aswell. [turns her head back to Theon and Yara] Our fathers were evil men. All of us here. They left the world worse than they found it. We're not going to do that. We're going to leave the world better than we found it. [stands up and begins walking down the stairs towards Theon and Yara while she speaks] You will support my claim as the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, and respect the integrity of the Seven Kingdoms. No more reaving, roving, raiding, or raping.Yara Greyjoy: [with a glare] That's our way of life.Daenerys Targaryen: No more.[Daenerys stares at Yara coldly, Yara turns her head to Theon who then nods at her in consent]Yara Grejoy: No more.[Yara lifts her arm up towards Daenerys.
