Which means the series will end like this (video), but with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.

Oh, wicked, bad, naughty, evil people of Meereen! Oh, you are a naughty people, and you must pay the penalty -- and here in the Slaver's Bay, we have but one punishment. You must be tied down on a bed and spanked by me, your Queen! You must be spanked well. Yes, yes, you must all receive a good spanking! And after the spanking, the oral sex.

The show's linguist, David Peterson, has revealed that the references appear in the scene where Daario Naharis faces off with the champion of Meereen and the latter shouts at Daenerys Targaryen in some foreign tongue. Although she asks what the invective means, she does not get an accurate translation. "He's actually saying a Low Valyrian translation of the French guy's insults in Monty Python and the Holy Grail,"


OK, so it's in a made up language? how in the blue fark are we SUPPOSED to know they are Python references? Show of hands; how many people here are farking psychic?

Apparently it is like Klingon, where the made up language was fleshed out with real syntax so that people can actually learn it like a real language. It was basically an in-joke for the geekiest of geeky fans.

More people speak Klingon than Esperanto. [citation needed] They want it to be a geek thing like people speaking Elvish or whatever. They're trying too hard.

I guess what I meant is who would recognize this NOW? I figured we'd have this as a Geek language eventually, but I haven't heard of anyone learning it. I DO like it when they actually create a real fake language for something like this, it always comes off far better this way.

How much of it has been created?  I know the show has a guy who works on it.  I recall reading about some fan who wrote to GRRM asking for a Valyrian dictionary and notes on grammer, and his reply was basically "I'm not Tolkien, I've invented exactly three words of high Valyrian".

i saw another article on this where they figured it out mostly because the handful of the hardcore who are learning it noticed that what they guy was yelling was not what the official translation that the translator girl was giving. he said none of them figured out exactly what it was, but they were in the ballpark enough that he spilled the beans

I've always thought the line went, "...empty-headed animal food trough water...". Was I wrong? Was I too high when it was first imprinted on my psyche many many years ago?

I didn't notice that particular reference but when Sansa is talking to Lady Arryn about Catlyn Stark staring to get fat as a girl, Sansa says that her mother wouldn't let her have her pudding until she had all her proper food. I can only assume by proper food she meant meat.

Now that you mention it, that almost certainly was intentional. Good call.
