Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron’s army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring.

Fight! Fight to the last man! Fight for your lives!
– Gandalf

We come to it, at last. The great battle of our time.
– Gandalf

I do not fear death.
– Aragorn

There’s plenty for the both of us, may the best Dwarf win.
– Gimli

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.
– Arwen

Yes! Precious! Precious… Precious!
– Gollum

Certainty of death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?
– Gimli

That’s for Frodo! And for the Shire! *And that’s for my old Gaffer!*
– Sam

You miserable little maggot. I’ll stove your head in!
– Sam

Is there any hope, Gandalf, for Frodo and Sam?
– Pippin
There never was much hope. Just a fool’s hope.
– Gandalf

I can’t carry it for you, but I can carry you.
– Sam

That still only counts as one.
– Gimli

Never thought I’d die fighting side by side with an Elf.
– Gimli
What about side by side with a friend?
– Legolas
Aye. I could do that.
– Gimli

I will not say “Do not weep”, for not all tears are an evil.
– Gandalf

Well, this is a thing unheard of. An Elf would go underground, where a Dwarf dare not. Oh, I’d never hear the end of it.
– Gimli

I will kill you if you touch him!
– Eowyn
Do not come between the Nazgul and his prey.
– Witch King

Frodo has passed beyond my sight. The darkness is deepening.
– Gandalf
If Sauron had the Ring, we would know it.
– Aragorn
It’s only a matter of time.
– Gandalf

We set out to save the Shire, Sam and it has been saved – but not for me.
– Frodo

I have wished you joy since first I saw you.
– Aragorn

The horses are restless, and the men are quiet.
– Legolas

For Frodo.
– Aragorn

Ride with me.
– Eowyn
My lady!
– Merry

Behold! The sword of Elendil!
– Aragorn

Feast on his flesh.
– Witch King

I need you on my side.
– Frodo
I’m on your side, Mr Frodo.
– Sam
I know you are, Sam.
– Frodo

Courage, Merry, courage for our friends.
– Eowyn

Can you sing, Master Hobbit?
– Denethor
Well… yes. At least, well enough for my own people. But we have no songs for great halls and… evil times.
– Pippin
And why should your songs be unfit for my hall? Come, sing me a song.
– Denethor
Home is behind, the world ahead… And there are many paths to tread. Through shadow, to the edge of night, until the stars are all alight… Mist and shadow, cloud and shade, all shall fade… all… shall… fade…
– Pippin

Hold your ground, hold your ground! Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you *stand, Men of the West!*
– Aragorn

Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It’ll be spring soon. And the orchards will be in blossom. And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And they’ll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields… and eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?
– Sam
No, Sam. I can’t recall the taste of food… nor the sound of water… nor the touch of grass. I’m… naked in the dark, with nothing, no veil… between me… and the wheel of fire! I can see him… with my waking eyes!
– Frodo
Then let us be rid of it… once and for all! Come on, Mr. Frodo. I can’t carry it for you… but I can carry you!
– Sam

My friends. You bow to no one.
– Aragorn

Fool of a Took!
– Gandalf

Are you going to leave me?
– Merry

No, Merry. I’m going to look after you.
– Pippin

I know your face… Eowyn. My eyes darken.
– Theoden
No. No. I’m going to save you.
– Eowyn
You already did… Eowyn. My body is broken. You have to let me go. I go to my fathers, in whose mighty company I shall not now feel ashamed. Eowyn…
– Theoden

Well, I’m back.
– Sam

The Ring is mine.
– Frodo

The stars are veiled. Something stirs in the East. A sleepless malice. The eye of the enemy is moving. He is HERE.
– Legolas

You can’t help me anymore.
– Frodo
You don’t mean that.
– Sam
Go home.
– Frodo

The last pages are for you, Sam.
– Frodo

The Age of Men is over. The Time of the Orc has come.
– Gothmog
