The Night’s Watch prepare to defend the Wall for the coming invasion by the wildlings Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode “The Watchers on the Wall” (S04E09).
Jon Snow, looking out over the north side of the Wall, sees a massive fire burning, and he and his brothers complete the preparations for battle. Ygritte, having scouted the entrance of Castle Black, reports that it is undermanned, and Styr orders the group to attack. As Ser Alliser orders the archers to nock, another horn blast informs him that the castle is being attacked from both sides. Alliser leaves charge of the Wall to Janos Slynt, and heads for the castle to battle with the Thenns. On top of the Wall, Janos Slynt proves to be inept as a commander, so Grenn tricks him to go down to the castle, leaving Jon in charge. Source: Wikipedia.
Ser Alliser: One hundred thousand you say?
Jon Snow: Yes, ser.
Ser Alliser: You can say it if you like. We should have sealed the tunnel while we had the chance, like you suggested.
Jon Snow: It was a difficult decision either way, ser.
Ser Alliser: Do you know what leadership means, Lord Snow? It means that the person in charge gets second-guessed by every clever little twat with a mouth. But if he starts second-guessing himself, that’s the end for him, for the clever little twats, for everyone. This is not the end. Not for us. Not if you lot do your duty for however long it takes to beat them back. And then you get to go on hating me, and I get to go on wishing
your wildling whore had finished the job.
Ser Alliser: Brothers! A hundred generations have defended this castle. She’s never fallen before. She will not fall tonight. Those are Thenns at our walls.
They eat the flesh of the men they kill. Do you want to fill the belly
of a Thenn tonight?
Ser Alliser: Tonight we fight. And when the sun rises, I promise you, Castle Black will stand! The Night’s Watch will stand!
Ser Alliser: With me now! Now with me!
Joffrey Baratheon’s death Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode “The Lion and The Rose” (S04E02).
In King’s Landing, after Joffrey Baratheon and Margaery Tyrell wedding, Joffrey tries to get Tyrion involved in the crude play with dwarves due to his size, but Tyrion refuses, instead requesting Joffrey display his own talent with a sword. Humiliated, Joffrey orders Tyrion to be his cupbearer, toying with him by intentionally dropping and kicking the goblet. Eventually, Tyrion fills the goblet and hands it to Joffrey, who repeatedly orders his uncle to kneel, but Tyrion is defiant. Margaery defuses the situation by drawing attention to the wedding pie. As Joffrey eats the cake that Margaery gives him and drinks wine from the goblet Tyrion gave him, he begins choking. While the emergency draws the crowd’s attention, the king falls to the ground and it becomes evident that he has been poisoned. Before dying, Joffrey points accusingly at Tyrion, who is examining the dropped goblet. Furious with grief, Cersei orders Tyrion arrested on charges of murdering Joffrey. Sorce: Wikipedia.

Arya: Why don’t you have any money? Didn’t you steal anything from Joffrey before you left?
The Hound: No.
Arya: You’re not very smart, are you?
The Hound: I’m not a thief.
Arya: You’re fine with murdering little boys, but thieving is beneath you?

Knight: Who would pass the Bloody Gate?
The Hound: The bloody Hound, Sandor Clegane. And his travelling companion, Arya Stark, niece of your lady Lysa Arryn.

Cersei Lannister confronts her father and affirms her love for her brother Jaime Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode “The Children” (S04E10).
In King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister tells her father, Tywin, that if forced to marry Loras Tyrell, she will admit her incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime, and that her children are the issue of such. Source: Wikipedia.
Cersei: Joffrey is dead. Myrcella’s been sold like livestock. And now you want to ship me off to Highgarden and steal my boy. My last boy. Margaery will dig her claws in, you will dig your claws in, and you’ll fight over him like beasts until you rip him apart. I will burn our house to the ground before I let that happen.
Tywin: And how will you do that?
Cersei: I’ll tell everyone the truth.
Tywin: What truth would that be?
Cersei: You don’t know, do you? You never believed it. How is that possible? What am I saying? Of course it’s possible. How can someone so consumed by the idea of his family have any conception what his actual family was doing? We were right there in front of you, and you didn’t see us. One real look in the past 20 years at your own children and you would have known.
Tywin: Known what?
Cersei: Everything they say is true about Jaime and me.
Cersei: Your legacy is a lie.
Tywin: No, no, no, no. I don’t believe you.
Cersei: Yes, you do.
Jaime: You won. One fewer brother. Must be proud of yourself. There’s really nothing you wouldn’t do, is there?
Cersei: For my family, no, nothing. I would do things for my family you couldn’t imagine.
Jaime: Tyrion is your family.
Cersei: He’s not.
Jaime: You don’t get to choose.
Cersei: I do. So do you. You can choose the creature that killed our mother to come into this world…
Jaime: Are you really mad enough to blame him for that? He didn’t decide to kill her. He was an infant.
Cersei: A disease doesn’t decide to kill you. All the same, you cut it out before it does. What do you decide? What do you choose?
Jaime: The things I did to get back to you, to endure all that, only to find you…
Cersei: I choose you.
Jaime: Those are words.
Cersei: Yes. Like the ones I just said to Father. I told him.
Jaime: Told him what?
Cersei: I told him about us.
Jaime: You told him?
Cersei: I told him I won’t marry Loras Tyrell. I told him I’m staying right here with Tommen, with you.
Jaime: You think he’ll just accept that?
Cersei: Go and ask him.
Jaime: What did you say?
Cersei: I don’t want to talk about Tywin Lannister. I don’t choose Tywin Lannister. I don’t love Tywin Lannister. I love my brother. I love my lover. People will whisper, they’ll make their jokes. Let them. They’re all so small, I can’t even see them. I only see what matters.
Jaime: Someone will walk in.
Cersei: I don’t care.
