Jon Snow: I have something for you. And it has to be packed very carefully.
Arya Stark: A present?
Jon Snow: Close the door. This is no toy. Be careful you don't cut yourself.
Arya Stark: It's so skinny.
Jon Snow: So are you. I had the blacksmith make it for you special. It won't hack a man's head off, but it can poke him full of holes if you're quick enough.
Arya Stark: I can be quick.
The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

As Jon makes his rounds, offering farewell to everyone in Winterfell, he stops in on Arya. Again, note that Jon is the bastard and Arya is a full-blooded Stark. He brings her a present, that being “Needle”, a sword Jon had made for her.

One of the earliest instances of us realizing that Jon is the only one to understand Arya. To further their connection, these two children both feature the same dark hair like Ned, whereas the other children have more of the Tully look (Catelyn), with the auburn colored hair.

Jon Snow: I came to say goodbye to Bran.
Catelyn Stark: You've said it.
Jon Snow: I wish I could be here when you wake up. I'm going north with Uncle Benjen. I'm taking the black. I know we always talked about seeing the Wall together, but you'll be able to come visit me at Castle Black when you're better. I'll know my way around by then. I'll be a sworn brother of the Night's Watch. We can go out walking beyond the Wall, if you're not afraid.
Catelyn Stark: I want you to leave.
The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

It’s difficult to say that this is a conversation between “good & evil” because Catelyn isn’t necessarily evil. This scene’s underlying themes get touched on later in the series, but as for right now — we know that Catelyn loves her kids and her husband Eddard. After all, she’s been weeping and praying at Bran’s bedside since he “fell”, safe to say she’s irritable, especially with the idea that she could lose her son.

Now you have Jon, the bastard, not Catelyn’s son — but Eddard’s and another woman’s. You can hear the hostility in her voice. I mean, it’s kind of obvious since her only two sentences to Jon are “You’ve said it.” (his goodbye) and “I want you to leave.” Whereas Jon not only obeys Catelyn, but he shows his love for Brandon and gives him a sincere farewell.

Jaime Lannister: My dear brother, there are times you make me wonder whose side you're on.
Tyrion Lannister: My dear brother, you wound me. You know how much I love my family.
The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

It is unquestionable that Tyrion is likely the smartest guy around. With this final exchange before the end of the scene, we can gather that this is precisely when Tyrion realizes that Jaime was behind Branon Stark’s “fall.” We can presume he’s already aware of his siblings' incest, proven by when he gets told outright that he’s not in the slightest bit surprised.

But this discussion is quite important in the development of Jaime and Tyrion’s relationship. Jaime questioning Tyrion’s loyalty and Tyrion continuing to play both sides by giving an acceptable answer, but by not necessarily meaning it.

Jaime Lannister: Even if the boy lives, he'll be a cripple, a grotesque. Give me a good clean death any day. The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

Jaime is discussing with Tyrion that there’d be no use in life for a cripple, he’d prefer to die. Tyrion counters by saying life is longer and more important than losing the abilities of certain body parts.

Remember this Game of Thrones fans, Jaime’s words shall carry some weight.

Joffrey finding Tyrion asleep in the dog’s pin of Winterfell. The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

Continuing to further drive home the point that Tyrion is a bit of a boozer, among other things. Joffrey starts this little scene off with the upper hand, but as you continue watching/reading, you’ll realize that Tyrion outwits the Prince.

Sandor Clegane: The Prince will remember that, little lord.
Tyrion Lannister: I hope so. If he forgets, be a good dog and remind him. Time for breakfast...
The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

The always clever Tyrion Lannister. Sandor Clegane, aka The Hound, warns Tyrion that when Prince Joffrey comes of age and eventually takes the throne, he will remember how rough Tyrion was on him.

However, fear not, Tyrion’s wits tend to overcome and he tells The Hound to “be a good dog”, using his nickname against him, as well as his position as Joffrey’s bodyguard.

Viserys Targaryen: Well, Mormont, as brutish as this life is, I suppose it is preferable to beheading. What did Ned Stark want you for? Buying from a slaver?
Jorah Mormont: Selling to one... Some poachers I caught on my land.
Viserys Targaryen: Under my reign, you won't be punished for such nonsense. You can rest assured of that.
The Kingsroad by Game of Thrones

Now we discover why nice guy Jorah is not in Westeros, rather across the Narrow Sea advising Viserys & Daenerys. He fled the Seven Kingdoms, escaping punishment for his actions. Those being that he sold people into slavery. He was ex-Lord of Bear Island, which fell under Eddard Stark’s territory (remember, Eddard is the Warden of the North). Prior to that, he was a catalyst in the Greyjoy Rebellion and was actually knighted by King Robert for his actions.

VISERYS: Do you take me for a fool?

ILLYRIO: I take you for a king. Kings lack the caution of common men. My apologies if I’ve given offense.

VISERYS: I know how to play a man like Drogo. I give him a queen and he gives me an army.

DAENERYS (pleadingly) I don’t want to be his queen. I want to go home.

VISERYS: So do I. I want us both to go home. But they took it from us. So tell me, sweet sister, how do we go home?

DAENERYS: I don’t know.

VISERYS: We go home with an army. With Khal Drogo’s army. I would let his whole tribe fuck you, all 40,000 men and their horses too, if that’s what it took.
Winter is Coming by Game of Thrones (Ft. David Benioff, D.B. Weiss & Tim Van Patten)

Obviously the short scene earlier gave us the impression that Viserys was a chump — but this is the undoubtedly when we realize that his world will crumble.

At this point in the story we conclude that Viserys is arrogant, prideful, and violent. If Machiavelli were to give us a write up on Viserys, it would state that he’s doomed from the get go. He continually puts himself into situations that he’s forced to rely on other people, mainly Khal Drogo. Instead of acquiring his army through common folk, Viserys opts to gain them through favors of noblemen. The noblemen won’t show him true affinity because their only true affinity is to themselves and their circumstances. Though one could easily argue that Viserys is the true King of the Seven Kingdoms, that doesn’t mean he’s the right king. He’s more interested in saying he’s the king than acting like one, in the sense that there’s a way a king ought to act.

Illyrio on the other hand is doing something quite smooth, he is playing Viserys like a fiddle. Stroking his ego and giving the appearance that he’s gained his trust and favor. Though this doesn’t necessarily come back to bite Viserys in the ass, it’s still a well played move.

A zombie appears behind her, Wray rushes in for the rescue. He opens fire, shooting the zombie, which spins around and returns fire. The two continue to fire on each other until they both eventually fall to the ground. Scene 24 Cherry's Dance of Death by Planet Terror (Ft. Freddy Rodriguez & Rose McGowan)

The end of El Wray. Traditional badass self sacrifice before the movie ends. Rodriguez calls Wray a “very John Carpenter type here”, in the same vein as Kurt Russell in Escape From New York.

Even through the end of Wray and the film, we still never truly find out who he was.

Cherry:
I mean it this time. I need a dramatic change in my life.
Scene 1 It's Go-Go Not Cry-Cry by Planet Terror (Ft. Rose McGowan & Skip Reissig)

Only moments into the movie, we realize that Cherry is a relatively successful go-go dancer, and that she needs a “dramatic” change in her life. It’s fairly blatant foreshadowing for the life change that she’s about to go through.

From using her legs to losing one. Although one could say “Killer legs” about both of her life aspirations int he film.
