    I thought the Red Wedding TOTALLY KILLED IT! Hahaha…ha..ha…oh well Hodor.

    I mean really, the Osha/Hodor scene was the biggesf laugh for me last season.

    The scene between Jaime and Brienne when they discuss Renly’s “throne” isn’t nominated? For shame.

    I wonder what the next nomination will be. Best fight scene? I suppose the majority here will lick D&Ds butts for those nine orgasmic seconds of Astapor carnage, or defend “ghost bites wight for half a minute” scene as an adequate sequel for season 2 ending, or even consider Hound/Frey soldiers an action scene.

    That whole scene was amazing. They are talking about such serious matters but even then John Bradley and Kristian Nairn can just light up the room. They have been robbed for this category!!!

    Omar Brown,

    That was really great. I’ll have to pick drunk Tyrion, though.

    The best quote is still “What happens when the non existing scrapes against the decrepit?” courtesy of the QoT.

    Tyrion’s wedding for me, by far.

  15. haltwhogoesthere
    Posted August 30, 2013 at 5:31 pm | Permalink

    It’s gotta be council musical chairs! It’s both hilarious and says so much about the characters. Without saying a single word. Littlefinger just barely outmaneuvering Varys. Cersei setting herself as Tywin’s second in command. Tyrion setting himself as Tywin’s equal. Pycelle shuffling into “the garden…” Varys’s faces! Silent humor is hard. I don’t think Tyrion’s drunk thing at the wedding was very humorous. But that may just be because I find drunk behavior more depressing than entertaining. Arya and the others being found isn’t even in the same division as the others!

    Oh but seriously? Probably drunk Tyrion.

    Anything the Queen of Thorns says! “A sword swallower through and through” the family tree discussion and my personal favorite, her remark to Varys about the non-existent bumping against the decrepit. Hahah, she’s just amazingly written and acted!

    So you know who gets my vote!

    Tyrion drunk on his wedding was a comedic scene? You guys have a strange definition of comedy…

    Voted for the chairs, thought you missed some candidates like Osha/Meera bickering and practically every single one of the QoT scenes.

  27. Nancy

    Agreed completely – if anything I’d nominate that for the best dramatic scene, especially the part with Sansa in the bedroom. But it’s Tyrion…

    “The Lysa Arryn of chairs.” Maybe more of a one liner, though.

    In the absence of the Olenna/Tywin face-off(because why?), I’m gonna go with Olenna’s attempt to demarcate the Lannister/Tyrell family tree.

    Yeh forget sex god pod. Tht was more like a chuckle then a funny moment. Hodor. Hodoring down the well defiently the funniest moment on the season. Wic should add tht too the poll

    Omar Brown: I mean really, the Osha/Hodor scene was the biggesf laugh for me last season. This. Had to hit pause/rewind to catch what followed. Hodor and the well was a close second (fan service?) – got to give Kristian Nairn big love for doing so much with so little.

    It’s an easy win for the small council.

    With 2nd place going to Arya and the Brotherhood, but mostly because of smart-ass Gendry berating Arya (and trolling the fans) with his questioning of how she could have had a killing machine and not picked Tywin. “You could have ended the war!” Awesome.

    The Pod stuff, not so much, other than the Meereenese knot line from Tyrion. And Tyrion drunk at his wedding I felt was a dramatic moment, not a funny one. Olenna Tyrell is a hoot of course, that goes without saying.

    Missing:

    –Gendry explaining to Melisandre about “bowls of brown.” “We always told ourselves it was chicken….it wasn’t chicken.”

    –Sideways Hodor.

    –Epic “HODORRRRRRRRRRRRRR” down the well.

    –Cersei to Loras: “No one cares what your father once told you.”

    –Varys to Littlefinger: “The Lysa Arryn of chairs.” A bit contemporary, but a good zinger nonetheless.

    –Arya telling the Hound he’s not a killer, and that she knows a real killer. Hound points to the guy they just knocked out. “Is that him?”

    Small Council chairs for me. Tyrion’s chair drag alone had me laughing more than anything else in the season. The scene as a whole was just fantastic with the ‘silent’ first couple minutes and they hurried for position, the chair move then chair drag, Tyrion’s lines about the new council chambers, Littlefinger boasting, Varys’ eye-rolling tongue in cheek… Great scene!

    Posted August 31, 2013 at 3:35 am | Permalink

    My vote went to the Queen Of Thorns, hands down, she was excellent this season with some of the best acted scenes and amazing dialogue!

    Of course she also had two of the best lines which where already mentioned and will have to go into the pantheon of great GoT lines alongside such classics as Bronn’s “There is no cure for being a cunt”, Littlefinger’s “Whores rarely sink….” and King Robert Baratheon’s “Common get on with it before I piss myself….”

    PS Oh yeah and Jamie’s take on a “throne of cocks” should definitely be recorded also…

    Uh oh and almost forgot about Tyrion’s exchange with Cersei and their respective weddings where Tyrion remarks that once Jamie is freed Loras will find himself with afflicted by a case of “sword through bowels”…LOL…and then tells Cersei that she might come out of this allright after all, whereas as he says “I’m trully fucked!”….LOL

    The family tree scene wasn’t QoT’s funniest, by far. Those go to her one-on-one interviews.

    This was so easy for me as I absolutely loved musical chairs in the council room, just the smirk of Tyrion’s face was absolute gold coupled with Vary and Tywin’s looks. Brilliant writing, who wrote it I have completely forgotten.

    By the way, not the funniest SCENE per se, but I actually had to stop the show and laugh for a while after Joffrey insulted Tywin and they just did a consecutive shot of all the “oh shiii~” faces

    Musical Chairs at the small council for me.

    Peter’s drunk performance at the wedding was just too OTT. And don’t get me started on that ridiculous scene with Pod, it was a waste of time.

  64. Zack
    Posted August 31, 2013 at 10:13 pm | Permalink

    I voted for Tyrion, Bronn, and Pod, first because I love any scene with Tyrion and Bronn, and second because I don’t think a few of the others (small council, Tyrion’s drunk wedding) were comedic. The small council table scene was brilliantly done but I wasn’t laughing at it, just admiring how it so deftly showcased the characters’ personalities without a single word being spoken. If I were simply picking ‘best overall scene’ of those nominees, it would be that one.

  65. Liam

    My favorite comedic scene was when Edmure was trying to light his fathers boat/body with the flaming arrows and kept missing.

    It’s really amusing to read every comment saying it was no contest, because everyone picked a different scene after saying it :D For me, it was musical chairs, with Olenna (anything Olenna) a close second.

  67. Olive

    I was hoping to see Edmure’s attempts with an arrow and Blackfish taking the bow and landing the shot. Or this exchange:

    Edmure: “The Laws of Gods and Men are very clear, no man can compel another man to marry!”
    Blackfish: “The laws of my fist are about to compel your teeth!”

    Or the whole bit with the Cheese Boy. But I voted for Olenna talking about the complicated family tree.

  75. Joe
    Posted September 3, 2013 at 12:56 pm | Permalink

    It’s none of the above, here’s the correct anwser:

    The Hound knocks out a merchant and is about to finish him off with his dagger.

    Arya: Don’t! don’t kill him.
    Hound: Dead rats don’t squeek.
    Arya: You’re so dangerous aren’t you? saying scary things to little girls, killing boys and old people, a real hard man you are.
    Hound: More than anyone you know.
    Arya: Wrong, I know a killer, a real killer.
    Hound: Is that so.
    Arya: You’d be like a kitten to him, he’d kill you with his little finger.
    Hound: That him? (nods towards knocked out merchant)
    Arya: (looks at knocked out merchant) No.
    Hound: Goood (is about to proceed with business)

    This one had me in tears laughing, I think it’s the funniest scene by far, in fact it’s not even remotely close. xD
