I remember he said it at least twice: In season 5 in the room with Missandei and Grey Worm and then again in season 6.

I made a bet with someone who claimed Tyrion said it earlier as well, in season 1 when visiting Winterfell.

Who is correct?

  • What a great premise to a question, I believe he's only said it twice.

1 Answer 1


He said it once in Season 6 Episode 2, Home:

Tyrion Lannister: Dragons do not do well in captivity.

Missandei: How do you know this?

Tyrion Lannister: That's what I do. I drink and I know things.

It can be viewed here:

He didn't say it in Season 1 at all.

I also went through Season 5 Transcripts and he didn't say it in it either but he said something remotely similar in S05E10:

Daario/Jorah: Can you fight?

Tyrion: I have fought. I don't claim to be a great warrior.

Daario/Jorah: Are you good on a horse?

Tyrion: Middling.

Daario/Jorah: So mainly you talk.

Tyrion: And drink. I've survived so far.

    A quick look through the scripts reveals he doesn't say it in Season 1 or Season 5.
