I had posted some LOTR quotes here earlier.. I watched all the three movies again back to back (which meant that I spent one whole day – from morning 11 to night 11 watching them 😛 ).. I am mad about LOTR.. I loveeee the story, the plot, literally EVERYTHING about it… This time I noticed that I liked more quotes/dialogues from the movie.. Here are some for LOTR fans that I missed out on earlier.. Most of them are Sam’s since I like him the best…
From “The two towers“:
Sam: It’s me. It’s your Sam.
Don’t you know your Sam?
Frodo: I can’t do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It’s all wrong. By rights, we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was.. when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing… this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you… that meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding onto, Sam?
Sam: That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.
Home is behind
The world ahead.
And there are many paths to tread.
Through shadow, To the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight
Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade
All shall fade All shall…fade.
Gandalf: The battle of Helm’s Deep is over; the battle for Middle Earth is about to begin.
From “The two towers” :
Galadriel: The power of the enemy is growing. Sauron will use his puppet Saruman to destroy the people of Rohan. Isengard has been unleashed. The Eye of Sauron now turns to Gondor, the last free kingdom of men. His war on this country will come swiftly. He senses the Ring is close. The strength of the Ringbearer is failing. In his heart, Frodo begins to understand. The quest will claim his life. You know this. You have foreseen it. It is the risk we all took. In the gathering dark, the will of the Ring grows strong. It works hard now to find its way back into the hands of men. Men, who are so easily seduced by its power. The young captain of Gondor has but to extend his hand, take the Ring for his own and the world will fall. It is close now, so close to achieving its goal. For Sauron will have dominion over all life on this Earth, even unto the ending of the world. The time of the elves is over. Do we leave Middle-Earth to its fate? Do we let them stand alone?
Gothmog (Orc) : Fear. The city is rank with it. Let us ease their suffering. Release the prisoners
Pretty little fly.
Why does he cry?
Caught in a web.
Soon he’ll be… eaten.
Theoden: I know your face… Eowyn. My eyes darken.
Eowyn: No. No. I’m going to save you.
Theoden: You already did… Eowyn. My body is broken. You have to let me go. I go to my fathers, in whose mighty company I shall not now feel ashamed. Eowyn… [dies]
Sam: Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It’ll be spring soon. And the orchards will be in blossom. And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And they’ll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields… and eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?
Frodo: No, Sam. I can’t recall the taste of food… nor the sound of water… nor the touch of grass. I’m… naked in the dark, with nothing, no veil… between me… and the wheel of fire! I can see him… with my waking eyes!
Sam: Then let us be rid of it… once and for all! Come on, Mr. Frodo. I can’t carry it for you… but I can carry you!
I love, love, love SAMWISE GAMGEE’s character so much… He is the nicest and best friend that anyone can ever have (I know I am repeating my words)… but I cant help myself from liking him a lot.. I was about to cry looking at him cry when Frodo believes in what the Gollum says and he says this:
“Frodo: No, Sam. It’s you. I’m sorry, Sam.
Sam: But he’s a liar. He’s poisoned you against me.
Frodo: You can’t help me anymore.
Sam: You don’t mean that.
Frodo: Go home. ”
I mean, without Sam’s encouragement and support, do you think Frodo could have succeeded in this journey? Nope, never!
