The filth of Saruman is washing away. Trees will come back here - young trees, wild trees.


Sm?agol: Give us that, D?agol, my love.
D?agol: Why?
Sm?agol: Because it's my birthday...and I wants it.

Sam: Haven't you had any sleep, Mr. Frodo? I've gone and had too much. It must be getting late.
Frodo: No, it isn't. It isn't midday yet. The days are growing darker.

[Sam gives Frodo some lembas bread]
Sam: Here.
Frodo: What about you?
Sam: I'm not hungry. Leastways, not for lembas bread.
Frodo: Sam...
Sam: Alright. We don't have that much left. We have to be careful or we're going to run out. You go ahead and eat that, Mr Frodo. I've rationed it. There should be enough.
Frodo: For what?
Sam: The journey home.

[Merry and Pippin are sitting on a section of Isengard's wall, smoking and eating]
Merry: It's good. Definitely from the Shire. Longbottom Leaf.
Pippin: I feel... like I'm back at the Green Dragon!
Merry: [mouth is full] Nn! Grn Dragn!
Pippin: A mug of ale in my hand... putting my feet up on a settle, after a hard day's work.
Merry: Only, you've never done a hard day's work. [They both laugh at this. They then see Gandalf approaching]
Merry: Welcome, my lords, to Isengard.
Gimli: You young rascals! A merry hunt you've led us on, and now we find you... feasting! and... and smoking!
Pippin: [With his mouth full] We are sitting on a field of victory, enjoying a few well-earned comforts. The salted pork is particularly good.
Gimli: Salted pork...
Gandalf: [snorts] Hnh! Hobbits!
Merry: We're under orders- from Treebeard, who's taken over management.

Theoden: I am happy for you. He is an honourable man.
Eowyn: You are both honourable men.
Theoden: It was not Th?oden of Rohan who led our people to victory. Ahh, don't listen to me. You are young, and tonight is for you.

Éomer: No pauses; no spills.
Gimli: And no regurgitation!
Legolas: So, it's a drinking game?
Gimli: Last one standing wins! Heh heh heh!
[After a few more scenes and other characters talking, we go back to Legolas and Gimli's drinking contest. Both have downed numerous glasses, and Gimli is extremely intoxicated, while Legolas seems to be unaffected]
Gimli: Here's ta dwarves that go swimming - with little hairy women! Heh heh heh!
Legolas: I feel something. A slight tingle in my fingers. [Éomer looks at him with mock surprise] I think it's affecting me!
Gimli: What did I say? He can't hold his liquor!
[He slurs this rather incoherently. His eyes cross, and he falls backwards off the chair. Everyone laughs.]
Legolas: Game over.

[The hobbits are singing, though the song is a bit drunkenly incoherent]
Merry and Pippin:
Oh, you can search far and wide
You can drink the whole town dry
But you'll never find a beer so brown
As the one we drink in our hometown!
You can drink your fancy ales
You can drink 'em by the flagon
But the only brew for the brave and true...
[Pippin trails off as he looks at Gandalf]
Merry: Pippin!
Merry and Pippin: But the only brew for the brave and true...
Comes from the Green Dragon!

Aragorn: No news of Frodo?
Gandalf: No word. Nothing.
Aragorn: We still have time. Every day Frodo moves closer to Mordor.
Gandalf: Do we know that?
Aragorn: What does your heart tell you?
Gandalf: That Frodo is alive. Yes. Yes, he is alive.

Elrond: I looked into your future and I saw death.
Arwen: But there is also life. You saw there was a child. You saw my son.
Elrond: That future is almost gone.
Arwen: But it is not lost.
Elrond: Nothing is certain.
Arwen: Some things are certain. If I leave him now, I will regret it forever.

Elrond: Your hands are cold. The life of the Eldar is leaving you.
Arwen: It was my choice. Father, whether by your will or not... there is no ship now that can bear me hence.

Denethor: Do you think that the eyes of the White Tower are blind? I have seen more than you know. With your left hand you would use me as a shield against Mordor, and with your right you would seek to supplant me! I know who rides with Th?oden of Rohan. Oh yes, word has reached my ears of this Aragorn son of Arathorn, and I tell you now... I will not bow to this Ranger from the North! Last of a ragged house long bereft of lordship.
Gandalf: Authority is not given to you to deny the return of the King, Steward!
Denethor: The rule of Gondor is mine! And no other's!

Denethor: Is there a captain here who still has the courage to do his lord's will?
Faramir: You wish now that our places had been exchanged - that I had died and Boromir had lived.
Denethor: Yes. I wish that.
Faramir: Since you were robbed of Boromir, I will do what I can in his stead. If I should return, think better of me, Father.
Denethor: That will depend on the manner of your return.

Aragorn: The beacons of Minas Tirith! The beacons are lit! Gondor calls for aid!
Theoden: And Rohan will answer. Muster the Rohirrim!

Éomer: Now is the hour! Riders of Rohan - oaths you have taken. Now, fulfill them all - to Lord and land!
