Robot ChickenEdit

  • The Nerd had a dream he was in Game of Thrones.
  • In a sketch from episode 7.6, George R.R. Martin fends off waves of nerds (a parody of Hitchcock's Birds). One nerd is adamantly convinced that Jon Snow's mother must be Melisandre ("it makes perfect sense!")

Sesame StreetEdit


The Sesame Street parody "Game of Chairs".

  • In the realm of "Jesteros", a "Game of Chairs" is held to determine who will be the new king or queen. Muppet versions are present of Ned, Robb, Cersei, Joffrey, Tyrion, Melisandre, and Daenerys. Grover is known as "Grover Bluejoy", and keeps getting the rules wrong. Grover wears a hat of bells - like Jinglebell Frey in the novels. The three chairs they use in their "Game of Chairs" are each made out of game equipment: one out of baseball bats, one out of golf clubs, and one out of table tennis paddles. When Joffrey loses a round because he hesitated to grab a chair, Grover says "Sorry, looks like you choked, Joffrey". Robb and Cersei are in the last round, but both trip and Grover ends up on the throne. Tyrion crowns him king. Cersei is upset and leaves shouting she's going to tell her brother. Robb says he can't imagine an ending more horrible for himself than this. Ned is upset that Grover won, but Grover says "Don't lose your head over this, Nedy baby." Grover then asks Tyrion to get a cushion so he can rest on the throne more easily. Grover then shivers and notes that it is getting cold, so he also tells Tyrion to get him a sweater, because "winter is coming".[1]
    • Carice van Houten liked this parody so much that she changed the background on her Twitter account to a screenshot showing the muppet version of Melisandre.

The OfficeEdit

  • In the American version of The Office, in the episode "Andy's Ancestry", the Dothraki language figures into the plot. Erin wants to impress Andy's intellectual family, each of whom speak more than one language, by picking a new language to learn herself. Her coworker Dwight, a scifi and fantasy nerd, knows Dothraki - openly admitting to her that it is an artificial language from a TV show - and suggests to her that it is a great language to learn. Later in the episode, he is seen giving her an accurate lesson in Dothraki on a chart: foth aggendak (I throat-rip), foth aggendi (you throat-rip), foth aggenda (he/she/it throat-rips). David J. Peterson, the linguist who created the Dothraki language, analyzed the episode's Dothraki dialogue on his blog and confirmed that it was accurate - though he said he was not consulted himself, and thus the writers of The Office must have just researched instructional guides he had previously released about Dothraki.[2]
    • Following up on this, a parody sequence during the 2011 Emmy Awards depicted characters from various shows on the set of The Office, giving in-universe interviews to the camera in the format of that show. They are asked how they feel about their work environment, and are all complaining about their co-workers. Randomly, a Dothraki warrior appears who complains that he's tired of other warriors who always forget to wash out the blood from the bowl they keep horse hearts in. In the next shot, Amy Poehler, as Leslie Knope, delivers her line in Dothraki.


  • In the fourth episode of the ninth season, "Slumber Party", Dean picks up Season 1 of Game of Thrones as an escape and watches it with Sam and Charlie. After finishing, Dean says "Wow, that Joffrey's a dick." Charlie expresses the lack of adventure in their jobs as monster hunters by exclaiming "Where are my White Walkers?"
  • In the fourteenth episode of the eleventh season, "The Vessel", a character says "The Men of Letters send their regards" before killing a monster.
  • In the twenty-second episode of the eleventh season, "We Happy Few", former lord of Hell, Crowley, calls the situations in Heaven and Hell "A game of thrones: it's musical chairs".

Key & PeeleEdit

  • The Comedy Central sketch comedy show Key & Peele released a special sketch, outside of their regular TV season, in honor of Season 5 the week before it aired. The titular comedians made another entry in their recurring skit of two hotel valets who, between waiting for cars, end up discussing various topics from popular culture, and getting extremely excited about them, "fanboying" out over them (i.e. Les Miserables, Mel Gibson movies, the Batman franchise, Liam Neeson in Taken, etc.) In this three minute long sketch, the two valets have just finished marathoning the previous seasons of Game of Thrones in anticipation of the new season's premiere, and start raving about the best or most shocking moments from the series so far, including:[3]
    • Ned Stark's sudden execution
    • Khal Drogo executing Viserys Targaryen by pouring molten gold over his head
    • Khal Drogo unpredictably dying not in combat but from an infected wound
    • Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons are amazing

    • Arya leaving the mortally wounded Sandor "The Hound" Clegane to die
    • Tyrion shooting his father Tywin dead on the privy
    • Peter Dinklage's Tyrion is amazing
    • The camera then pulls back to reveal that their hotel is located at the top of a mountain, just like The Eyrie, and then they both jump through a Moon Door that happens to be in front of the hotel, falling hundreds of feet.

Pretty Little LiarsEdit

  • In the fifth episode of the fourth season, Spencer Hastings asks a student to figure out to whom a telephone number she found belongs, and after some time he finally agrees to help her.

She replies that she can give him the entire Targaryen speech from season 1, but she won't waste her breath.

  • In Season 1 episode 8, "Dead Air", the main characters test the zombie drug in varying amounts on five lab rats. The rat that received the most of the drug is successfully turned into a zombie-rat, which then breaks into the metal cages of the other four and kills them. It then eats their brains, leaving behind a gory aftermath. When lead character Liv sees the spectacle, she remarks "The Lannisters send their regards" - what Roose Bolton said to Robb Stark as he killed him at the height of the Red Wedding massacre.
