A red sun rises. Blood has been spilled this night.

Pippin: Turn around. Turn around and take us south!
Treebeard: South? But that will... lead you past Isengard.
Pippin: Yes. Exactly. If we go south we can slip past Saurman unnoticed. The closer we are to danger the father away we are from harm is the last thing he'll expect.
Treebeard: Hmm, that doesn't make much sence. But then you are rather small. Perhaps you're right. South it is then. I always liked going south. Somehow feels like going downhill.
Merry: [to Pippin] Are you mad?! We'll be caught.
Pippin: No, we won't. Not this time.

Sauron's wrath will be terrible, his retribution swift. The battle for Helm's Deep is over. The battle for Middle Earth is about to begin. All our hopes now lie with two little hobbits. Somewhere in the wilderness.

Sam: It's me. It's your Sam. Don't you know your Sam?
Frodo: I can't do this, Sam.
Sam: I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo; the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end... because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was, when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you that meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going... because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam: That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it's worth fighting for.

Gimli: Oh, come on! We can take 'em!
Aragorn: It's a long way.
Gimli: [Reluctantly]...Toss me.
Aragorn: [Surprised] What?
Gimli: I cannot jump the distance, so you'll have to toss me!
[Aragorn is ready to throw Gimli]
Gimli: Ah! ...Don't tell the Elf.
Aragorn: [Grins] Not a word.
[Aragorn picks up Gimli and throws him over the gap]

The enemy? His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is...where he came from. And if he was really evil at heart. What lies or threats led him on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed peace. War will make corpses of us all.

Gollum: Smeagol... Smèagol... Why does it cry, Smèagol?
Smèagol: Horrid men hurts us. Master tricksed us...
Gollum: Of course he did. I told you he was tricksy. I told you he was false.
Smèagol: Master is our friend! My friend...
Gollum: Master betrayed us!
Smèagol: No, no, not its business! Leave us alone!
Gollum: Filthy little hobbitses, they stole it from us!
Smèagol: No... no...
Faramir: What did they steal?
Gollum: ... My... PRECIOUS!!! [screams]

Aragorn: Pendraith! ("Ladders!")
Gimli: Good!

My precious. Note: ranked #85 in the American Film Institute's list of the top 100 movie quotations in American cinema.

Aragorn: It is an army bred for a single purpose... to destroy the world of Men. They will be here by night fall.
King Th?oden: Let them come!

Gimli: [putting on a mail coat too long for him] If I had time I'd get this adjusted...
[Aragorn and Legolas look at each other]
Gimli: It's a little tight across the chest!

Legolas: Come, Gimli!
Gimli: [Panting heavily] I'm wasted on cross-country! We dwarves are natural sprinters! Very dangerous over short distances!

Gimli: Legolas! Two already!
Legolas: I'm on seventeen!
Gimli: Hah! I'll have no pointy-ears outscoring me!
[he kills another Uruk]
Legolas: Nineteen!

[Gimli is talking to Éowyn]
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf women. In fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they're often mistaken for Dwarf men.
Aragorn: [Whispers, strokes beard] It's the beards.[Éowyn giggles]
Gimli: And this, in turn, has given rise to the belief that there are no Dwarf women; and that Dwarves just... spring out of holes in the ground! Which is, of course, ridiculous. Woah! [falls off horse] I'm all right! I'm all right. Nobody panic! That was deliberate! It was deliberate!

Gimli: Well, lad, whatever luck you live by, let's hope it lasts the night.
Legolas: Your friends are with you, Aragorn.
Gimli: Let's hope they last the night.
