With "Game of Thrones" George R.R. Martin crafted a universe full of (tons and tons and tons) complicated and complex characters. Many of the main characters have strong, individualized voices and even out of context, almost any quote can be quickly placed to its speaker. In a world of dozens of characters that is no small feat. Robert Baratheon had many memorable quotes.

The King of the Seven Kingdoms himself (at the open of the series) Robert Baratheon ruled for over 15 years. As such, he had a lot to say... a fair amount of it about food and ladies. As Ser Barristan so succinctly put it, "He was a good man, a great warrior, and a terrible king."

    "They never tell you how they all shit themselves. They don't put that part in the songs... stupid boy. Now the Tarlys bend the knee like everyone else. He could have lingered on the edge of the battle with the smart boys, and today his wife would be making him miserable, his sons would be ingrates, and he'd be waking three times in the night to piss into a bowl."
