Tywin vs Olenna: A Summary
All the gay!
All the incest!
Lulz, these not-at-all-veiled insults and threats are why the Lannisters and Tyrells are meant for each other.
#TYWIN #STOP BEING SO SASSY
“So you know the story of House Reyne of Castamere?”
Tywin seems a hard man to you, I know, but he is no harder than he’s had to be. Our own father was gentle and amiable, but so weak his bannermen mocked him in their cups. Some saw fit to defy him openly. Other lords borrowed our gold and never troubled to repay it. At court they japed of toothless lions. Even his mistress stole from him. A woman scarcely one step above a whore, and she helped herself to my mother’s jewels!
It fell to Tywin to restore House Lannister to its proper place. Just as it fell to him to rule this realm, when he was no more than twenty. He bore that heavy burden for twenty years, and all it earned him was a mad king’s envy. Instead of the honor he deserved, he was made to suffer slights beyond count, yet he gave the Seven Kingdoms peace, plenty, and justice. He is a just man. You would be wise to trust him.

| ↳ “ It’s not an opinion, it’s a fact! If another house can seize one of our own, and hold him captive with impunity, it means we’re no longer a house to be feared! Your mother’s dead, before long I’ll be dead, and you…and your brother and your sister and all of her children. All of us dead, all of us rotting in the ground. It’s the family name that lives on. It’s all that lives on. Not your honor, not your personal glory, family.”

Renly Baratheon and Tywin Lannister
At first look it would seem it’s a completely random choice, but it isn’t. Actually, I think I would an interesting conversation (or argument). The intelligence of Lord Tywin against Renly’s wit and his jokes.
The truth is… it could be even funny.
Lord Tyrwin: What do they say of Robb Stark in the north?
Arya: They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. The say he can’t be killed.
Lord Tywin: And do you believe them?
Arya: No, my lord, anyone can be killed.
