Sophie Turner recently reflected on some of her most iconic moments as Sansa Stark on “Game of Thrones” – though she isn’t as enthused about one in particular as her fans are.
During an interview with BBC Radio 1 on Wednesday, movie critic Ali Plumb listed Sansa’s sassiest line on the series finale as one of his favourites from the series. In the scene, Edmure Tully makes the case for himself as king, but Sansa quickly shuts him down: “Uncle, please sit.”
“I would hate Sansa,” Turner said. “I would be like, ‘You hussy.'”
“I think she’s great,” Plumb replied.
“I think she’s great, too,” Turner added, “but if my niece said that to me, I’d be like, ‘Sit down and shut up.'”
Turner’s analysis of the scene may shock fans. Many “Thrones” enthusiasts adore Sansa for her witty one-liners, and the line is question is especially beloved.

Some fans even quote the line when reacting to real-life situations and news, especially regarding politics.
Who will be our Sansa and finally tell Biden "Uncle. Please sit."

Sansa saying “uncle please sit” is going to be me at the next family gathering when a distant uncle says some sexist shit to get a reaction out of all the women in the room.
