Heartbreaking Scene [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't really have specific answers to your question, but I do want to say that this is one of my favorite parts of the movie and I find it a hearbreaking scene. It's genuinely funny and it seems that Sam and Gollum are basically interacting like siblings. Frodo, Sam, and Gollum seem to be a family here, and this is the last time they will all interact on essentially good terms. It's a taste of what might have been. So, even though it's very light-hearted and humorous, I find it incredibly sad in context of what is to come.

Thinking about it now, I am reminded of the ice-skating scene in King Kong. It is the one last time Ann Darrow and Kong can have fun together and interact in their common physical language. You know what's coming and that makes the happy scene all the more sad.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
