I felt something for you once, you know? Even after we lost our first boy. For quite a while, actually.
Cersei: What was she like?
Robert: You’ve never asked about her, not once. Why now?
Cersei: At first just saying her name, even in private, felt like I was breathing life back into her. I thought if I didn’t talk about her she’d just fade away for you. When I realized that was not going to happen, I refused to ask out of spite. I didn’t want to give you the satisfaction of thinking I cared enough to ask. And eventually became clear that my spite didn’t mean anything to you. As far as I could tell, you actually enjoyed it.
Robert: So why now?
Cersei: What harm could Lyanna Stark’s ghost do to either of us that we haven’t done to each other a hundred times over?
Robert: …You want to know the horrible truth? I can’t even remember what she looked like. I only know that she was the one thing I ever wanted. Someone took her away from me. And seven kingdoms couldn’t fill the hole she left behind.
Cersei: …I felt something for you once, you know.
Robert: I know.
Cersei: Even after we lost our first boy… for quite a while, actually. Was it ever possible for us? Was there ever a time, or a moment?
Robert: …No. Does that make you feel better or worse?
Cersei: It doesn’t make me feel anything.
