When she thinks of returning to Maidenpool, Brienne recalls that Jaime had laughed when she told him to stop singing.
Brienne: What are you doing?
Jaime: Singing. 'Six Maids in a Pool,' I'm sure you've heard it. And shy little maids they were, too. Rather like you. Though somewhat prettier, I'll warrant.
