The Return of the King

"No Sam! Leave him alone!"


"Sam, we're lost!"

"I'm not sending him away!"

"We can't do this by ourselves Sam, not without a guide. I need you on my side."

"I know, Sam, I know. Trust me. Come Smeagol."


"Oh Sam, I'm so sorry, sorry for everything."

"It's too late. It's over! They've taken it! Sam! They took the ring!"

"Give it to me! Give me the ring, Sam! Sam! Give me the ring!"

"You must understand. The ring is my burden. It will destroy you, Sam."

"There's so many of them. We'll never get through unseen."

"It's him, the Eye!"

"I'm glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things."


"And thus it was, the Fourth Age of Middle-earth began, and the Fellowship of the Ring, though eternally bound by friendship and love, was ended."

"Thirteen months to the day since Gandalf sent us on our long journey, we found ourselves looking upon a familiar sight. We were home."

"How do you pick up the threads of an old life? How do you go on, when in your heart, you begin to understand there is no going back. There are some things that time cannot mend, some hurts that go too deep, that have taken hold."

"It's been 4 years to the day since Weathertop, Sam. It's never really healed."

"Not quite. There's room for a little more."

"Bilbo once told me his part in this tale would end, that each of us must come and go in the telling. Bilbo's story was now over. There would be no more journeys for him, save one."

"To the harbor, Bilbo. The Elves have accorded you a special honor, a place on the last ship to leave Middle-earth."

"I'm sorry Uncle. I'm afraid I lost it."

"I set out to save the Shire, Sam, and it has been saved, but not for me."

"The last pages are for you, Sam."

"My dear Sam. You cannot always be torn in two. You will have to be one, and whole, for many years. You have so much to enjoy, and to be, and to do. Your part in this story will go on."

The Two Towers


"Nothing. Just a dream."

"No! Don't look down, Sam, just keep going!"

"I think I've found the bottom!"

"What's in this?"

"Roast chicken?"

"Sam. My dear Sam."

"It is special. It's a little bit of home."

"We can't leave this here for someone to follow us down."

"Real Elvish rope?"

"He didn't mean for a lot of things to happen, Sam. But they did."

"It's getting heavier."

"What food have we got left?"

"Nothing ever dampens your spirits, does it Sam?"

"Because we've been here before! We're going in circles."

"Yes, I can smell it. We're not alone."

"This is Sting. You've seen it before, haven't you, Gollum? Release him, or I'll cut your throat."

"Maybe he does deserve to die, but now that I see him, I do pity him."

"There's no promise you can make that I can trust."

"The Ring is treacherous. It will hold you to your word."


"Do you know the way to Mordor?"

"You've been there before."

"You will lead us to the Black Gate."

"Why do you do that?"

"Call him names, run him down all the time."

"You have no idea what it did to him, what it's still doing to him. I want to help him, Sam."

"Cause I have to believe he can come back."

"What do you know about it? Nothing!"

"I'm sorry, Sam. I don't know why I said that."

"I know what I have to do, Sam. The Ring was entrusted to me! It's my task, mine, my own!"

"We've got to keep moving. Come on, Sam."

"We have lingered here too long. Come on, Sam!"

"We are bound to an errand of secrecy. Those that claim to oppose the Enemy would do well not to hinder us."

"We are hobbits of the Shire. Frodo Baggins is my name, and this is Samwise Gamgee."

"There was no other."

"We set out from Rivendell with seven companions. One we lost in Moria. Two were my kin. A dwarf there was also, and an elf, and two men, Aragorn son of Arathorn, and Boromir of Gondor."

"Yes, for my part."

"Dead? How? When?"

"If something has happened to Boromir we would have you tell us."

"Wait! This creature is bound to me, and I to him. He is our guide. Please! Let me go down to him."

"Smeagol! Master is here! Come, Smeagol! Trust Master, come!"

"Smeagol, you must trust Master! Follow me, come on! Come. Come Smeagol, nice Smeagol, that's it, come on."

"Don't hurt him! Smeagol, don't struggle! Smeagol, listen to me!"

"I can't. You were right, Sam. You tried to tell me."

"I'm sorry."

"The ring is taking me, Sam. If I put it, he'll find me. He'll see."


"The ring will not save Gondor! It has only the power to destroy. Please, let me go!"

"Faramir! You must let me go!"

"It's is calling to him, Sam. His eye is almost on me."

"They're here."

"They've come."

The Fellowship of the Ring

"You're late!"

"It's wonderful to see you, Gandalf!"

"What news of the outside world? Tell me everything."

"You know Bilbo. He's got the whole place in an uproar."

"You know Bilbo. He's got the whole place in an uproar." *Extended DVD*

"Half the Shire's been invited."

"Half the Shire's been invited, and the rest will show up anyway." *Extended DVD*

"To tell you the truth, Bilbo's been a bit odd lately. I mean more than usual. He's taken to locking himself in his study. He spends hours and hours poring over old maps when he thinks I'm not looking."

"He's up to something."

"All right then, keep your secrets. Before you came along we Bagginses were very well thought of. Never had any adventures or did anything unexpected."

"All right then, keep your secrets. I know you had something to do with it." *Extended DVD*

"Whatever you did, you've been officially labeled a disturber of the peace."

"Gandalf, I'm glad you're back."

"Go on Sam, ask Rosie for a dance."

"Oh no, you don't. Go on! (laughs)"

"Bilbo, have you been at the Gaffer's home brew?"

"Bilbo, look out for the dragon!"


"Bilbo! Bilbo!"

"He's gone hasn't he? He talked for so long about leaving. I didn't think he'd really do it. Gandalf?"

"Where are you going?"

"What things?"

"But you've only just arrived! I don't understand."

Frodo, Merry and Pippin singing.

"And proud of it. Cheers, Gaffer!"

"Don't worry, Sam. Rosie knows an idiot when she sees one."

"What are you doing?"

"Nothing. There's nothing. Wait. There are markings. It's some form of Elvish. I can't read it."


"Bilbo found it. In Gollum's cave."

"But he was destroyed. Sauron was destroyed."

"All right, we'll put it away. We'll keep it hidden. No one knows it's here do they?"

"Do they Gandalf?"

"Shire! Baggins! But that would lead them here!"

"Take it Gandalf! Take it! (Gandalf: No Frodo!) You must take it!"

"I'm giving it to you!"

"But it cannot stay in the Shire!"

"What must I do?"

"Where? Where do I go?"

"And the ring will be safe there?"

"I can cut across country easily enough."

"This is what?"

"Come on, Sam."

"Remember what Bilbo used to say. It's a dangerous business (Bilbo: Frodo)."

"Sam! Wood Elves!"

"They going to the harbor beyond the White Towers, the Grey Havens."

"Never to return."

"Shut your eyes, and imagine you're back in your own bed, with a soft mattress and a lovely feather pillow."

"Me neither, Sam."

"What are you talking about?"

"What did he say?"

"Sam, we're still in the Shire. What could possibly happen?"

"What's the meaning of this?"

"I think we should get off the road."

"Get off the road! Quick!"


"I have to leave the Shire. Sam & I must get to Bree."


"How far to the nearest crossing?"

"Come on."

"We're heading for the Prancing Pony."

"We wish to stay at the inn. Our business is our own."

" 'Scuse me."

"Underhill. My name's Underhill."

"We're friends of Gandalf the Grey. Can you tell him we've arrived?"

"Sam, he'll be here. He'll come."

" 'Scuse me. That man in the corner, who is he?"



"What do you want?"

"I carry nothing."

"Who are you?"


"What are they?"

"What are they?" *Extended DVD*

"Where are you taking us?"

"I think a servant of the Enemy would look fairer, and feel fouler."

"We have no choice but to trust him."

"Who is she, this woman you sing of?"

"What happened to her?"

"What are you doing?"

"Put it out, you fools, put it out!"


Frodo screaming

"Oh Sam!"

"Gandalf...(Aragorn: Hold on Frodo) Gandalf!"

"Where am I?"


"What happened Gandalf? Why didn't you meet us?"

"Gandalf? What is it?"




"There and Back Again, A Hobbit's Tale by Bilbo Baggins. This is wonderful."

"I miss the Shire. I spent all my childhood pretending I was off somewhere else, off with you on one of your adventures. My own adventure turned out to be quite different. I'm not like you Bilbo."

"Packed already?"

"Thought you wanted to see the Elves, Sam."

"More than anything."

"You're right, Sam. We did what we set out to do. The Ring will be safe in Rivendell. I am ready to go home."

"I will take it! I will take it!"

"I will take the Ring to Mordor...though I do not know the way."

"It's so light."

"Mordor, Gandalf. Is it left or right?"

"We will go through the Mines."

"Better than it was."

"Who then do I trust?"

"What do you mean?"

"It's a riddle. Speak friend, and enter. What's the Elvish word for friend?"

"There's something down there!"


"He escaped the dungeons of Barad-dur?"

"It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance!"

"I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened."

"Aragorn! Aragorn!"

"I'm alright. I'm not hurt."



"No! No!"

"What will I see?"

"If you ask it of me, I will give you the one ring."

"I cannot do this alone."

"Then I know what I must's just...I'm afraid to do it."

"I'm all right."

"You can't help me, Sam. Not this time."

"Get some sleep."

"I know what you would say, and it would seem like wisdom but for the warning in my heart."

"There is no other way!"


"You are not yourself."

"No! (Boromir: "Give me the ring!") No!"

"It has taken Boromir."

"Stay away!"

"Can you protect me from yourself?"

"Would you destroy it?"

"I know. Look after the others, especially Sam. He will not understand."

"No, Sam!"

"Go back, Sam! I'm going to Mordor alone."

"You can't swim!"

"Sam! Sam!"

"Oh, Sam."

"Come on."

"Mordor. I hope the others find a safer road."

"I don't suppose we'll ever see them again."

"Sam, I'm glad you're with me."
