Sadly, my lord, I never forget a thing. ~Varys S4E6
Adam Rifkin stashed this in Game of Thrones!

Best Reddit comment:
This scene brings to mind the dialogue between Varys and Ned Stark in S1.
Eddard Stark: You watched my men being slaughtered and did nothing.
Lord Varys: And would again, my lord. I was unarmed, unarmored, and surrounded by Lannister swords. When you look at me, do you see a hero?
Varys knows that if he stands up for Tyrion, his own name will be discredited too. He's playing his role, but he hates that he has to do it.
Another good Reddit comment:
"You are an honest and honorable man, Lord Eddard. Ofttimes I forget that. I have met so few of them in my life."
He glanced around the cell.
"When I see what honesty and honor have won you, I understand why.""
"The High Septon once told me that as we sin, so do we suffer. If that's true, Lord Eddard, tell me . . . why is it always the innocents who suffer most, when you high lords play your game of thrones?"
