Man : No, no, don’t! Don’t!
Talisa : Shh, shh.
Man : Please!
Talisa : Shh. The rot’s set in. Man : No, don’t! No, don’t!
Talisa : Shh.
Man : Please, don’t! It’ll get better. It doesn’t even hurt.
Talisa : The rot will spread. If we don’t take the foot now--
Man : No, you can’t! Sir! Please, Sir. I can’t lose--
Robb : You’ll die if she doesn’t.
Man : I don’t want to be a cripple, please.
Robb : Surely one of our men needs your attention more than this cub.
Talisa : Your men are not my men, My Lord.
Robb : Put this in your mouth and lie down. You don’t want to watch.
Man : No! You can’t!
Robb : Bite on it. It’s better than biting your own tongue, believe me.
Robb : What's your name?
Talisa : Talisa.
Robb : Your last name?
Talisa : You want to know what side my family fights on?
Robb : You know my family name. You have me at a disadvantage. Talisa : That boy lost his foot on your orders.
Robb : They killed my father.
Talisa : That boy did?
Robb : The family he fights for.
Talisa : Do you think he’s friends with King Joffrey?
Robb : He’s a Fisherman’s son that grew up near Lannisport.
Talisa : He probably never held a spear before they shoved one in his hands a few months ago.
Robb : I have no hatred for the lad.
Talisa : That should help his foot grow back.
Robb : You’d have us surrender, end all this bloodshed. I understand. The country would be at peace and life would be just under the righteous hand of good King Joffrey.
Talisa : You’re going to kill Joffrey?
Robb : If the Gods give me strength.
Talisa : And then what?
Robb : I don’t know. We’ll go back to Winterfell. I have no desire to sit on the Iron Throne.
Talisa : So who will?
Robb : I don’t know.
Talisa : You’re fighting to overthrow a king, and yet you have no plan for what comes after?
Robb : First we have to win the war.
Robb : You never told me where you’re from.
Talisa : Volantis.
Robb : Volantis? You’re far from home. The boy was lucky you were here.
Talisa : He was unlucky that you were
