The Eye Of The Enemy Is Moving 

They cursed us.
"Murderer" they called us.
They cursed us and drove us away.
And we wept, precious, we wept to be so alone.
And we only wish to catch a fish.
And we forgot the taste of bread, the sound of trees, the softness of the wind.
We even forgot our own name.

Aragorn: Everyday, Frodo moves closer to Mordor.
Gandalf: Do we know that?
Aragorn: What does your heart tell you?
Gandalf: That Frodo is alive. Yes, he's alive.

Gandalf: He will raze Minas Tirith to the ground before he sees a king return to The Throne of Men.
If he beacons of Gondor are lit, Rohan must be ready for war.
Theoden: Tell me, why should we ride to the aid of those who did not come to ours?
What do we owe Gondor?

 Merry: He's always followed me, everywhere I went, since before we were twins.
I would get him into the worst sort of trouble, but I always there to get him out.
Now he's gone. Just like Frodo and Sam.
Aragorn: One thing I have learned about Hobbits, they're a most hardy folk.

Arwen: Tell me what have you seen.
You have the gift of foresight, what did you see?
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.
It is time.

Gandalf: The White Tree of Gondor. The Tree of The King.
Lord Denethor, however, is not king. He is a steward only, a caretaker of the throne.
Now listen carefully. 
Lord Denethor is Boromir's father. 
To give him news of his beloved son's death would be most unwise.
[Pippin nods]
And do not mention Frodo or the ring.
[Pippin nods]
And say nothing of Aragorn either.
In fact, it's better if you don't speak at all, Peregrin Took.
[Pippin nods]

Gandalf: War is coming. The enemy is on your doorstep.
As steward, you are charged with the defense of this city.
Where are Gondor's armies?
You still have friends. You are not alone in this fight.
Send word to Theodon of Rohan. Light the beacons.
Denethor: You think you are wise, Mithrandir.
Yet for all your subtleties, you have not wisdom.
Do you think 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'd seek to supplant me.
I know who rides with Theodon 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!

I don't want to be in a battle.
But waiting on the edge of one I can't escape is even worse.
~Peregrin Took

Gandalf: Your father's will has turned to madness. Do not throw away your life so rashly.
Faramir: Where does my allegiance lie if not here?
This is The City of The Men of Numenor.
I will gladly give my life to defend her beauty, her memory, her wisdom.
Gandalf: Your father loves you, Faramir. He will remember it before the end.

Home is behind
The world ahead
And there are many paths to thread
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

Legolas: The horses are restless and the men are quiet.
Eomer: They grow nervous in the shadow of the mountain.
Gimli: That road there, where does that lead?
Legolas: It is the road to the Dimholt, the door under the mountain.
Eomer: None who venture there ever return. That mountain is evil.

Eomer: You should not encourage him.
Eowyn: You should not doubt him.
Eomer: I do not doubt his heart, only the reach of his arm.
Eowyn: Why should Merry be left behind? He has as much cause to go to war as you.
Why can he not fight for those he loves?
Eomer: You know as little of war as that Hobbit.
When the fear takes him, and the blood and the screams and the horror of battle take hold,
do you think he would stand and fight?
He would flee.
And he would be right to do so.
War is the province of men, Eowyn.

Elrond: I come on behalf of one whom I love.
Arwen is dying.
She will not long survive the evil that now spreads from Mordor.
The Light of The Evenstar is failing.
As Sauron's power grows, her strength wanes.
Arwen's life is now tied to the fate of the ring.
The shadow is upon us, Aragorn. The end has come.
Aragorn: It will not be our end, but his.
Elrond: You ride to war, but not to victory.
Sauron's armies march on Minas Tirith, this you know.
But in secret he sends another force which will attack from the river.
A fleet of Corsair ships sails from the south.
They'll be in the city in 2 days.
You're outnumbered, Aragorn. You need more men.
Aragorn: There are none.
Elrond: There are those who dwell in the mountain.
Aragorn: Murderers, traitors. You would call upon them to fight? 
They believe in nothing. They answer to no one.
Elrond: They will answer to The King of Gondor.
[show him the sword]
Elendil, The Flame of The West, forged from the shards of Narsil.
Aragorn: Sauron will not have forgotten The Sword of Elendil.
The blade that was broken shall return to Minas Tirith.
Elrond: The man who can wield the power of this sword
can summon to him an army more deadly than any that walks this earth.
Put aside the ranger. Become who you were born to be.
Take the Dimholt road.
I give hope to men.
Aragorn: I keep none for myself.

Aragorn: Why have you come?
Eowyn: Do you not know?
Aragorn: It is but a shadow and a thought that you love.
I cannot give you what you seek.
I have wished you joy since first I saw you.

Long ago, The Men of The Mountains swore an oath to the last king of Gondor,
to come to his aid, to fight.
But when the time came, when Gondor's need was dire, they fled,
vanishing into the darkness of the mountain.
And so Ilsidur cursed them, never to rest until they had fulfilled their pledge.

Who shall call them from the grey twilight?
The forgotten people.
The heir of him to whom the oath they swore.
From the north shall he come.
Need shall drive him.
He shall pass the door to The Paths of The Dead.

King of the Dead: The way is shut.
It was made by those who are dead. And the dead keep it.
The way is shut. Now you must die.
[Legolas shoot him by his arrow, but he missed it since he shoot a ghost]
Aragorn: I summon you to fulfill your oath.
King of the Dead: None but the king of Gondor may command me.
[The King of the Dead sworn his sword to Aragorn, but he can fend it by Elendil]
That line was broken.
Aragorn, grab The King of the Dead neck: It has been remade.
Fight for us and regain your honor.
What say you?
What say you?
Gimli: You waste your time, Aragorn. 
They had no honor in life, they have none now in death.
Aragorn: I am Isildur's heir.
Fight for me and I will hold your oaths fulfilled.
What say you?
[The King of Dead laugh]
You have my word!
Fight, and I will release you from this living death!
What say you?!

We fight.
~The King of The Dead

This task was appointed to you, Frodo of The Shire.
If you do not find a way, no one will.

My Lady, you are fair and brave, and have much to live for, and many who love you.
I know it is too late to turn aside.
I know there is not much point now in hoping.
If I were a knight of Rohan, capable of great deeds, but I'm not, I'm a Hobbit.
And I know I can't save middle-earth.
I just want to help my friends.
More than anything, I wish I could see them again.

Mr. Frodo, wake up.
Don't leave me here alone.
Don't go where I can't follow.
~Samwise Gamgee

Pippin: I didn't think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn't end here.
Death is just another path, one that we all must take.

Witch King: You fool. No man can kill me. Die now.
[Merry stabs his feet]
Eowyn, take off her helmet: I am no man.

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!

Frodo: I can't recall the taste of food, nor the sound of water, nor the touch of grass.
I'm naked in the dark.
There's nothing. No veil between me and the wheel of fire.
I can see him, with my waking eyes.
Sam: 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.

[to The Hobbits]
My friends, you bow to no one.
~Aragorn, kneel before them

Farewell, my brave Hobbits.
My work is now finished.
Here at last, on the shores of the sea, comes the end of our fellowship.
I will not say, 'do not weep', for not all tears are an evil.
