Just incase anyone is wondering, I was informed this is a response to Valar morghulis (all men must die) That's a pretty Bad A way to do the casual "how are you" "I'm good" charade.

I would say "that made me laugh" in High Valyrian, but the closest I know so far is "Kirine vala iksan."

It bothers me a bit that only the full translation is given for the phrase. Would "all men serve" also be acceptable? It doesn't accept that as an answer, but they seem more or less synonymous, and to the best of my knowledge (not much, admittedly) it doesn't look like "must" is explicitly defined in "valar dohaeris".

I do not think it is also, but I do think they just follow the translation of the TV Show. Its like a common phrase in an imaginary language.

Agree that it should be accepted because that's what is being literally said and we wouldn't add a "must" for other sentences using the aorist.

I think it is, but this phrase calls less for a translation than a knowledge of the response to the greeting valar morghūlis.
