Tyrion Lannister: Last time we saw each other was at Winterfell, yes? You were making jokes about my height, I seem to recall. Everyone who makes a joke about a dwarf's height thinks he's the only person ever to make a joke about a dwarf's height. A height of nobility. A man of your stature. Someone to look up to. You're all making the same five or six jokes.Theon Greyjoy: It was a long time ago.Tyrion Lannister: It was. And how have things been going for you since then? Not so well I gather. Can't imagine you would have murdered the Stark boys if things had been going well.Theon Greyjoy: I didn't murder the Stark boys. But I did things that were just as bad, or worse.Yara Grejoy: And he paid for them.Tyrion Lannister: Doesn't seem like it. He's still alive. It was complicated for you I'm sure, growing up at Winterfell. Never quite knowing who you were. But then, we all live complicated lives, don't we?Daenerys Targaryen: You've brought us a hundred ships from the Iron fleet, with men to sail them. In return I expect you want me to support your claim to the throne of the Iron Islands?Theon Grejoy: Not my claim. [nods his head to Yara] Hers.Daenerys Targaryen: What's wrong with you?Theon Greyjoy: I'm not fit to rule.Tyrion Lannister: We can agree upon that at least.Daenerys Targaryen: Has the Iron Islands ever had a queen before?Yara Grejoy: No more than Westeros.Theon Grejoy: Our uncle Euron returned home after a long absence. He murdered our father, and took the Salt Throne from Yara. He would have murdered us if we'd stayed.Daenerys Targaryen: Lord Tyrion tells me your father was a terrible king.Yara Grejoy: You and I have that in common.Daenerys Targaryen: [after a short pause] We do. And both murdered by a usurper aswell. [turns to Tyrion] Will their ships be enough?Tyrion Lannister: With the former masters' fleet, possibly. Barely. [glares down at Theon] There are more than a hundred ships in the Iron fleet- Theon Grejoy: There are. And Euron's building more. [to Daenerys] He's going to offer them to you.Daenerys Targaryen: So why shouldn't I wait for him?Theon Greyjoy: The Iron fleet isn't all he's bringing. He also wants to give you-..Yara Grejoy: [scornfully] His big cock, I think he said. [Daenerys raises her eyebrows disapprovingly, smirking at Tyrion] Euron's offer is also an offer of marriage, you see.. You won't get one without the other.Daenerys Targaryen: And I imagine your offer is free of any marriage demands.Yara Grejoy: [softly] I never demand but I'm up for anything really.[Daenerys gazes at Yara with a smile]Theon Grejoy: He murdered our father and would have murdered us. He'll murder you as soon as you have what he wants.Tyrion Lannister: The seven kingdoms?Theon Grejoy: All of them.Daenerys Targaryen: And you don't want the seven kingdoms?Theon Grejoy: Your ancestors defeated ours, and took the Iron Islands. We ask you to give them back.Daenerys Targaryen: And that's all?Yara Grejoy: We'd like you to help us murder an uncle or two who think a woman's not fit to rule.Daenerys Targaryen: [with a smirk] Reasonable.Tyrion Lannister: [to Daenerys] What if everyone starts demanding their independence?Daenerys Targaryen: She's not demanding, she's asking. The others are free to ask aswell. [turns her head back to Theon and Yara] Our fathers were evil men. All of us here. They left the world worse than they found it. We're not going to do that. We're going to leave the world better than we found it. [stands up and begins walking down the stairs towards Theon and Yara while she speaks] You will support my claim as the Queen of the Seven Kingdoms, and respect the integrity of the Seven Kingdoms. No more reaving, roving, raiding, or raping.Yara Greyjoy: [with a glare] That's our way of life.Daenerys Targaryen: No more.[Daenerys stares at Yara coldly, Yara turns her head to Theon who then nods at her in consent]Yara Grejoy: No more.[Yara lifts her arm up towards Daenerys. Daenerys, indecisively, looks over her shoulder at Tyrion who then signals her to accept Yara's arm-shake. After a brief hesitation, Daenerys puts a grasp around Yara's arm, shaking her arm]

Amid a broader conversation about criminal justice reform between the California senator and former Vice President Joe Biden, the moderators turned to the Hawaii congresswoman.

Aldrin in the Apollo 11 Lunar Module. For the 50th anniversary of the landing, Omega issued a limited edition Speedmaster watch, a tribute to the one that Buzz Aldrin wore to the moon. ( Neil Armstrong/NASA via AP) I prefaced desolate with magnificent, because of humanitys reaching outward and accomplishing something that people thought was impossible, Buzz Aldrin said. They dreamed of somehow reaching the moon. And to demonstrate, to be a part of demonstrating this miracle was magnificent. On July 16, 1969, Buzz Aldrin, along with mission commander Neil Armstrong and command module pilot Michael Collins, launched from Kennedy Space Center atop a Saturn V rocket. Four days later, Neil Armstrong made history when Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon. Aldrinexited thelunar module 19 minutes after Neil Armstrong. The famed astronaut joked about being second during his interview. APOLLO 11 INSIDERS REMEMBER HISTORYS MOST FAMOUS SPACE MISSION : WE HAD A JOB TO DO AND WE DID IT I will forever, no matter what I do, be known as the second man on the moon, he quipped. In this July 20, 1969 photo made available by NASA, astronaut Buzz Aldrin, lunar module pilot, walks on the surface of the moon during the Apollo 11 extravehicular activity. ( Neil Armstrong/NASA via AP) Why does it bother you to be a second man to walk on the moon ? Youre one of a dozen men who had that incredible role, Cavuto asked in a follow-up question. Well, people love being vice president, dont they ? No, Buzz Aldrin responded with a chuckle. APOLLO 11S EPIC MISSION TO THE MOON IN PICTURES Does it bother me ? Yeah, it does a little bit, Buzz Aldrin continued. Why ? Because that isnt the way I would have described what this country did with two human beings landing on the moon and then deciding who was going to go out. We did things together as a team. The famous astronaut also recalls his famous steps across the surface of the moon and how he was well aware that the world was watching. Right near the end of our period out there Buzz Aldrin was doing something with the rock boxes -- I knew where the TV camera was, and I jumped up and down and pranced around to demonstrate the mobility that a person has, he said. So I was demonstrating for the people watching on TVintentionally showing them the varieties of kangaroo hop of turning. APOLLO 11 INSIDERS REMEMBER HISTORYS MOST FAMOUS SPACE MISSION : WE HAD A JOB TO DO AND WE DID IT During his sit-down with Cavuto, Buzz Aldrin also recollected the experience of looking back at Earth while on the surface of the Moon. [ You ] look up there, theres the earth. It looks small when its up there. If you look close, you may be able to see the ice over a pole, he said. If you look at your Omega watch, you may be able to tell what time it is in Houston. Buzz Aldrin also talked about the political significance of their mission to the moon, coming as it did duringthe space race with Russia atthe height of the Cold War. APOLLO 11 : THE BOOK THAT LANDED MAN ON THE MOON COULD SELL FOR $ 9 MILLION I do a lot of thinking today -- about somebody who had -- the guts to see that we were being outshone -- outshined in the Cold War by the Soviet Union, and to say, What can we do ?
