Like Westerns? Us too. We’re also huge fans of Game of Thrones, as you already know. (Well, all but that ridiculous ending.) Now, take the song we’re gonna drop in below and imagine that as the backdrop to the Hound chicken quote from the 2014 Two Swords episode of Game of Thrones during Season 4?
It is one of our very favorite scenes from the show. Now, take this western cover and put it in the background of that scene. Maybe imagine it as a “fist full of dragons” instead of a “fist full of dollars”.
The Hound Chicken Quote Scene
Or, just imagine the Stranger (Clint Eastwood, Fistful of Dollars, not the Westerosi god) wearing The Hound T Shirt or hoodie while facing down the Rojo Brothers.
Brilliant work by Ben Dan Productions. Just brilliant.
Here’s the final script from the scene that generated the Hound chicken quote.
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane : [leaning forward] Fuck the king.
[long, uncomfortable silence]
Polliver: When I heard that Joffrey’s dog had tucked tail and run from the Battle of the Blackwater, I didn’t believe it. But here you are.
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: Here I am. Bring me one of those chickens.
Polliver: You got money to pay for it?
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: YOU paid for it?
Polliver: [chuckles] No. But we’re the king’s men. So, you got money?
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: Not a penny. I’ll still take that chicken.
Polliver: Tell you what: we’ll trade you. One of our little chickens for one of yours.
[Polliver turns to look at Arya]
Polliver: Give us a go at your friend.
[Polliver turns and motions to one of his men at another table]
Polliver: Lowell there likes them a bit broken in.
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: You’re a talker. Listening to talkers makes me thirsty.
[the Hound reaches across the table, grabs Polliver’s drink, and drains it]
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: And hungry. Think I’ll take two chickens.
[Polliver turns and looks at his men, then turns back to the Hound]
Polliver: You don’t seem to understand the situation.
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: I understand that if any more words come pouring out your cunt mouth, I’m gonna have to eat every fucking chicken in this room.
Polliver: You lived your life for the king. You gonna die for some chickens?
Sandor ‘The Hound’ Clegane: Someone is.
Know who loves the idea of this shirt? Lord Bernard of House Sanders.
