What is the house of Rohan, but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek, and their brats roll on the floor with the dogs?! The victory at Helm's Deep does not belong to you, Th?oden Horse-master! You are a lesser son of greater sires.


Elrond: You're outnumbered. You need more men.
Aragorn: There are none.
Elrond: There are those who dwell inside the mountain. [a fell wind blows through the tent]
Aragorn: Murderers. Traitors. They answer to no one.
Elrond: [pulling out Andúril] They will answer to the King of Gondor!

[Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli stand at the edge of the Anduin, while the corsair ships sail by]
Aragorn: You may go no further. You will not enter Gondor.
Corsair captain: [laughing] Who are you to deny us passage?
Aragorn: Legolas, fire a warning shot past the botswain's ear.
Gimli: And mind your aim!
[as Legolas fires, Gimli taps the bow with his axe handle. The arrow instead kills the botswain.]
Gimli: Alright, we warned you! Prepare to be boarded!
Corsair captain: [as the crew laughs] Boarded? By you and whose army?
Aragorn: This army.
[The Dead Army appear behind the three and charge at the ships]

King of the Dead: Release us!
Gimli: Bad idea! Very handy in a tight spot, these lads, despite the fact they're dead.
King of the Dead: You gave us your word!
Aragorn: I hold your oaths fulfilled. Go. Be at peace.

Éowyn: The city has fallen silent. There is no warmth left in the sun. It grows so cold.
Faramir: It's just the damp of the first spring rain. I do not believe this darkness will endure.

Gandalf: Now come the days of the King. May they be blessed.
Aragorn: This day does not belong to one man, but to all. Let us together rebuild this world that we may share in the days of peace. [sings in Quenya]
Et Eärello

("Out of the Great Sea to Middle-earth I come. In this place I will abide, and my heirs, unto the ending of the world.")

[to Saruman] We shall have peace. We shall have peace, when you answer for the burning of the Westfold, and the children who lie dead there! We shall have peace, when the lives of the soldiers, whose bodies were hewn even as they lay dead against the gates of the Hornburg, are avenged! When you hang from a gibbet, for the sport of your own crows, we shall have peace!

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.

[Legolas and Gimli are having a contest, seeing who can kill the most enemies until the battle is over]
Legolas: Fifteen... sixteen...
Gimli: Seventeen... eighteen... nineteen...
[Legolas scales a Mûmakil, eventually climbing on top and shooting the Haradrim archers at the summit]
Legolas: Thirty three... thirty four...
[Legolas runs along its back, kills it with one triple-arrow shot, and slides down its trunk to land in front of Gimli]
Gimli: That still only counts as one!

Young master Gandalf, I'm glad you've come. Wood and water, stock and stone I can master, but there's a wizard to manage here. Locked in his tower.

Gandalf: Go back to the abyss! Fall into the nothingness that awaits you and your master!
Witch-King: Do you not know death when you see it, old man?
[Pippin screams in fear]
Witch-King: [draws his sword; the blade ignites] This is... my hour!
[After an intense battle of wills, Gandalf's staff shatters, and he and Pippin are knocked off Shadowfax]
Pippin: Gandalf! [Attempts to defend him, but is soon petrified with fear as the Fell Beast roars]
Witch-King: You have failed. The world of Men will fall.
[The Rohirrim trumpets blare in the distance, and the Witch-king flies off]

[on the Witch-king] Sauron has yet to reveal his most deadliest servant, the one who will lead Mordor's armies. The one they claim no living man can kill. The Witch-King of Angmar. [to Pippin] You've met him before. He stabbed Frodo on Weathertop. He is the Lord of the Nazgul, greatest of the Nine. Minas Morgul is his lair.

Legolas: [Reading the inscription over the cave] The way is shut. It was made by those who are dead, and the dead keep it. The way is shut.
Aragorn: I do not fear death.
[He goes in, followed by Legolas]
Gimli: Well this is a thing unheard of! An Elf will go underground, whene a Dwarf dare not! Oh, I'd never hear the end of it!
[Gimli goes in]'

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadow shall spring.
Renewed shall be blade that was broken;
The crownless again shall be king.

Our enemy is ready, his full strength gathered. Not only orcs, but men as well. Legions of Haradrim from the south, mercenaries from the coast, all shall answer Mordor's call. This will be the end of Gondor as we know it. Here the hammer stroke will fall hardest. If the river is taken, if the garrison at Osgiliath fails, then the last defence of this city will be gone.
