QuotesAdd a Quote
Gollum: Wake up sleepies!!
Aragorn: Hold your ground, hold your ground! 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 wolves 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!*
Frodo: It's over. It's done.
Sam (killing an orc): That's for Mr. Frodo! (He kills another one.) That's for the Shire! (He kills a third)...and that's for my old Gaffer!
Frodo (speaking to Gollum): I have to destroy the ring...I have to destroy the ring for both our sakes.
"The Way is shut. It was made by those who are dead, and the dead keep it. The Way is shut."
I know this isn't in this movie, it is in the Two Towers (also an awesome movie) but I love it!
Gimli: Legolas, I have 2 already!
Gimli: I will not be beaten by an elf!
Theoden; Little Hobbits do not belong in war.
Merry; All my friends have gone to battle. I would be ashamed to be left behind.
Theoden; It is a three days ride to Minas Tirith and none of my riders can bear you as a burden.
Merry; I want to fight!
Theoden; I will say no more.
Eowyn; Ride with me.
Merry; My lady!
Aragorn; You ride with us?
Eowyn; Just to the encampment. It's tradition for the women of the court to farewell the men. The men have found their leader. They will follow you anywhere, even to death. You have given us hope.
