GAME OF THRONES
Episode 2x02 The Night Lands


[The Night's Watch boys scrub pots and Gendry collects water at a stream. Lommy watches Gendry leave with a bucketful.]

LOMMY GREENHANDS
If they come back, I say we yield. Gendry's the one they want. I don't want to get caught in the middle of a battle.

HOT PIE
I ain't afraid of no battles.

ARI
If you got within a mile of a battle, you'd fill your pants.

HOT PIE
I've seen lots of battles. I saw--

ARI
Liar.

HOT PIE
I saw a man kill another man just outside a tavern in Flea Bottom. Stabbed him right in the neck.

LOMMY GREENHANDS
Two men fighting isn't a battle.

HOT PIE
They had armour on.

ARI
So?

HOT PIE
So, if they got armour on, it's a battle.

LOMMY GREENHANDS
No, it isn't.

HOT PIE
What does a dyer's apprentice know about battles, anyway?

ARI
Gendry's an armourer's apprentice. Hot Pie, tell Gendry what makes a fight into a battle.

[Hot Pie and Lommy look over at Gendry. Gendry waits for the answer.]

HOT PIE
It's, erm, when they've got armour on.

GENDRY
And who told you that?

HOT PIE
A knight.

GENDRY
How do you know he was a knight?

[Arya waits to hear Hot Pie's response.]

HOT PIE
Well, it's 'cause he's got a--armour on.

[Lommy rolls his eyes and Arya chuckles in the background.]

GENDRY
You don't have to be a knight to have armour. Any idiot can buy armour.

[Arya grins.]

HOT PIE
How d'you know?

GENDRY
'Cause I sold armour.

[Arya and the boys finish scrubbing. The boys leave and Arya approaches Gendry.]

ARI
What do the Gold Cloaks want with you?

GENDRY
No idea.

ARI
You're a liar.

GENDRY
You know, you shouldn't insult people that are bigger than you.

ARI
Then I wouldn't get to insult anyone.

[Arya follows Gendry to the water tub.]

GENDRY
I don't care what any of them want. No good's ever come of their questions.

ARI
No good's ever come? Who asked questions before?

GENDRY
How can someone so small be such a huge pain in my ass?

ARI
Who asked questions?

GENDRY
The Hand of the King. Or Hands of the King.

[Arya is stunned that Gendry talked to her father.]

GENDRY
Lord Arryn came first a few weeks before he died, and then Lord Stark came a few weeks before he died.

ARI
Lord Stark.

GENDRY
See? Asking me questions is bad luck. You'll probably be dead soon.

[Arya follows Gendry back to the stream.]

ARI
What did they ask about?

GENDRY
My mum.

ARI
Who's your mum?

GENDRY
She's my mum. Worked in a tavern, died when I was little.

ARI
And who is your father?

GENDRY
Could be one of those Gold-Hearted bastards for all I know. What about you, anyway? I thought they were after you. Why? Did you kill someone, or is it just because you're a girl?

[Arya's eyes widen in surprise and fear.]

ARI
I'm not a girl.

GENDRY
Yes, you are. Do you think I'm as stupid as the rest of them?

ARI
Stupider. The Night's Watch doesn't take girls. Everyone knows that.

GENDRY
Yeah, that's true. You're still a girl.

ARI
I am not!

GENDRY
Yeah, well, pull your cock out and take a piss, then.

[Gendry stares her down. Arya hesitates, uncertain how to cover.]

ARI
I don't need to take a piss.

[Gendry smirks and goes back to filling the water tub. Arya realizes the game is up.]

ARI
Lommy and Hot Pie can't know. No one can know.

GENDRY
They won't. Not from me.

ARI
My name's not Ari. It's Arya...of House Stark.

[Gendry is surprised.]

ARI
Yoren is taking me home to Winterfell.

GENDRY
He was your father. The Hand, the traitor.

ARI
He was never a traitor. Joffrey is a liar.

GENDRY (stunned)
So you're a high-born, then. You're a lady.

ARI
No. I mean, yes. My mother was a lady and my sister, but--

GENDRY
Yeah, but you were a lord's daughter and you lived in a castle and... Look, all that about cocks, I should never have said. A--and I've been pissing in front of you and everything. I...I should be calling you "milady."

ARI
Do not call me milady.

GENDRY
As milady commands.

[Gendry bows and Arya gets angry and shoves him.]

GENDRY
Well, that was unladylike.

[Ari shoves Gendry to the ground and he smiles. She stomps off and he laughs.]
