Lord of the Rings: Quotes
January 23, 2012 § Leave a comment
Some of you may have seen on Facebook that I was doing a weekend marathon of the Lord of the Rings (extended versions). I posted many quotes there over the course of my watching, and I am compiling them all here! I am also adding some of my comments, which will be in italics.
The Fellowship of the Ring
Samwise Gamgee: I’ve been droppin’ no eaves, Sir!
Elrond is just so pessimistic…
According to Arwen-Undomiel.com, my elvish name is Galasriniel, meaning “crowned with plant”. (Like my name, meaning “crowned with laurel”.)
Gandalf: You shall not pass!! — Wrong password, try again please.
I feel like you’d have to have only one or two Horns of Gondor, or else everyone would be calling with it all the time. “HELP I’M DYING!” “NO HELP ME I’M DYING!”
Frodo: I’m going to Mordor alone!
Sam: Of course you are, and I’m coming with you!
Aragorn: Let’s hunt some orc!
The Two Towers
Gandalf: Shadowfax, he’s the lord of all horses, and he’s been my friend through many dangers.
Smeagol: Cold be hand and heart and bone. Cold be travelers far from home. They do not see what lies ahead when sun has failed and moon is dead.
Sam: Even you couldn’t say no to that!
Smeagol: Oh yes we could! Spoiling nice fish.. give it to us raaaw and wrrrriggling! Keep your nasty chips!
Sam: You’re hopeless.
Faramir: And who are you? His bodyguard?
Sam: His gardener.
Gimli: Whatever luck you’ve lived by, let’s hope it lasts the night!
Legolas: Your friends are with you, Aragorn.
Gimli: Let’s hope they last the night!
Merry and Pippin: But the only brew for the brave and truuuueeee comes from the Green Dragon!
The Return of the King
Sam: Sneaking off are we?
Smeagol: Sneaking? Sneeeaking? Fat hobbit is always so polite. Smeagol shows them secret ways, that nobody else can find, and they say /sneak/? Sneeak! Very nice, very nice, oh yes precious, very nice indeed.
Sam: Alright, alright! You just startled me is all. What were you doing?
Sam: Alright, have it your way then.
Gimli: Well this is a thing unheard of! An elf will go underground, when a dwarf dare not! Ohhh… I’d never hear the end of it!
It’s cool that the Mordor orcs have a captain with a bum leg. Yay for equal opportunity!
Gollum: Pretty little fly. Why does it cry? Caught in a web, soon you’ll be…. eaten.
Aragorn: Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends, and break all bonds of fellowship; but it is not this day! An hour of woe, and shattered shields, when the Age of Men comes crashing down; but it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!
Sam: C’mon Mr. Frodo! I can’t carry it for you — but I can carry you!!
I also recommend that everyone listen to Annie Lennox’s song, “Into the West.” I always watch enough credits to listen to that because it is absolutely beautiful!
