You know what Stannis wants?
Mance: When we first met you were my prisoner and now for our last meeting...
John: This doesn't have to be our last meeting.
Mance: No, but it will be.
John: You know what Stannis wants?
Mance: He wants me to bend the knee and he wants the free folk to fight for him. I'll give him this much, he's bold.
John: Shouldn't a king be bold?
Mance: Oh I respect him. If he gets what he wants I expect he'll be a better ruler than the fools sitting on the Iron Throne the last two hundred years... but I'll never serve him.
