Moria. You fear to go into those Mines. The Dwarves delved too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dûm. Shadow... and flame.


Nin o Chithaeglir, lasto beth daer, Rimmo nin Bruinen dan in Ulair! (Waters of the Misty Mountains, listen to the great word: Flow, waters of Loudwater, against the Ringwraiths!)

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep; the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly!

It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing… such a little thing...

they have a cave-troll.

Nobody tosses a dwarf.

I will take it. I will take the ring to Mordor. Though, I do not know the way.

(aside) Mordor, Gandalf - is it left or right?

For the time would soon come when Hobbits would shape the fortunes of all.

In place of a Dark Lord you would have a Queen! Not dark, but beautiful and terrible as the dawn! Treacherous as the sea! Stronger than the foundations of the Earth! All shall love me and despair!

Bilbo Baggins! Do not take me for some conjurer of cheap tricks! I am not trying to rob you! I'm trying to help you. All your long years we've been friends. Trust me as you once did. Let it go.

(musing on the Ring) Riddles in the Dark. My precious.

The spirit of Sauron endured. His life force is bound to the Ring, and the Ring survived. Sauron has returned. His Orcs have multiplied. His fortress of Barad-dûr is rebuilt in the land of Mordor. Sauron needs only this Ring to cover all the lands in a second darkness. He is seeking it… seeking it and all his thought is bent on it. For the Ring yearns above all else, to return to the hand of its master. They are one; the Ring and the Dark Lord. Frodo... he must never find it.

Understand, Frodo, I would use this Ring from a desire to do good… but through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.

My dear Frodo. Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all that there is to know about them in a month, and yet after a hundred years, they can still surprise you.
