- Talisa Maegyr: "What if I told you my father sold lace on the Long Bridge and my mother, my brother, and I lived with him above our shop?"
- Robb Stark: "I'd call you a liar."
- Talisa Maegyr: "Not very noble to accuse a lady of dishonesty."
- — Talisa Maegyr teases Robb Stark.[src]
When Robb Stark refers to Talisa Maegyr as "lady," she wonders how come he believes her to a member of the nobility. It is obvious to him and she poises a hypothetical question about what if she was a merchant's daughter who had a shop on the Long Bridge. Robb still remains firm that she is a noblewoman and she later confirms that she is.
In the booksEdit
In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels, the Long Bridge joins the two halves of Volantis across the mouth of the Rhoyne. It is a great span with a road supported by massive piers that the Valyrians built at the height of their glory. Its gateway is an arch of black stone carved with sphinxes, manticores, dragons, and other strange beasts. The road is just wide enough for two carts to pass abreast. Buildings rise on either side of the roadway. One can buy almost anything in the shops on the Long Bridge. In the center of the bridge the hands of thieves and the heads of executed criminals are displayed.
