And how could I forget - "What say you?" // [In reply to] Can't Post

 

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. “Elendil!” he cried. “I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil’s son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!” TTT, Book III, Chapter 2
And Éomer answered: “Since the day when you rose before me out of the green grass of the downs I have loved you, and that love shall not fail.” RotK, Book VI, Chapter 5

Witchking... [In reply to] Can't Post

      "Do not stand between the Nazgul and its prey."
"I will break him."
"Give up the half-ling she-elf!" (classic!!)

Arwen: "If you want him come and claim him!"

Gandalf: "It is but the deep breath before the plunge."

Theoden: "DEEAATHH!!"

Orc: "The time of men is over, the time of the orc has begun."

"Fear, I smell it in the city, let us ease their pain."

Denethor: "We will burn like the heathen kings of old." and "Bring wood and oil."

Denethor: "You think you are wise, Mithrandir. Yet for all your subtleties, you have not wisdom."

we still use LOTR shorthand around my home... [In reply to] Can't Post

A lot of the movie lines still show up around here, note as often as they once did, but often enough....

A few of the ones that still get used now and then...

"What time do you think we have?"

'Wait, it's here in my pocket..."

"I would dearly like to hold it again..."

"But not for me...."

"Well, I'm back..."

"The world has changed..."

"What's taters, precious?"

And "going to Mordor" is still used fairly often when any one of us has to do something we really don't want to do...

Yep, lots of quotable lines in these films...but you know what's really bad? When you start quoting the commentaries....!

Top 20 Quotes??!!?!? NOT!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Good heavens, what a LAME list of quotes!!!

Even without any research, I can come up with five quotes from the films that were far better than ANY of these. Note- a few of mine have already been mentioned by others.

1. "All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." Gandalf to Frodo

2. "YOU SHALL NOT PASS!" Gandalf to the Balrog

3. "There is ALWAYS hope!" Aragorn to boy at Helms Deep

4. "I would have followed you, my brother, my captain, my king!" Boromir to Aragorn

5. "Of course you're going alone. And I'm coming with you!" Samwise to Frodo

Other obvious Top 20 quotes not mentioned in the article:

"May the horn of Helm Hammerhand sound in the deep one last time!" King Theoden at the Battle of Helms Deep"

"I am NO man!" Eowyn to Witchking

"There is still hope" Arwen to Elrond

"Mordor, Gandalf? Is it left or right?" Frodo to Gandalf

"Well, I'm back" Samwise at the end of the journey

Why, it's iconic to do that, isn't it...! [In reply to] Can't Post

After watching the commentaries, I started saying everything was "an iconic scene" or an "iconic moment" for awhile -- I think Jackson must say that about 100 times in his interviews, about book scenes he really liked.

But the commentary talk was a bit less frequent than lines like "and after that, it gets even better". That one works for so many occasions!

It is .. [In reply to] Can't Post

Sometimes it's better to let go of the Past
sometimes that seems to be a Mission
without much chance of success ...

So what are you waiting for?
Bomby?

Try hard & take her Thimble of ashes
sprinkle them around the roots of
Bilbo's Party Tree
& bury her Ring
just inside the
front gate of
BagEnd...

Do any of you think that is too much to ask
of the caretakers of Hobbiton
in Matamata?

Her 72th Birthday would have been
this December 9th...

She thanks you for reading this

Here's a nice book quote: [In reply to] Can't Post

"Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house." - Aragorn (TTT)

"Darkness beyond blackest pitch, deeper than the deepest night!
King of Darkness, who shines like gold upon the Sea of Chaos.
I call upon thee and swear myself to thee!
Let the fools who stand before me be destroyed by the power you and I possess!"

goofy ones... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd never claim this is one of the best lines of LOTR. But it's become part of my family's lexicon to say, "Looks like meat's back on the menu, boys!" Wink

And I cannot hear someone order a pint of beer without thinking or saying "it comes in pints?"

And the "what's taters, precious?" line comes out every time I cook with potatoes.

Finally, my footer has the line I quote probably the most, lover of second breakfast that I am.

"Yes, but what about SECOND breakfast?"

Perfect for meetings: [In reply to] Can't Post

"Tell me, boss, when did management abandon reason for madness?"

******************************************
The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”

Laugh

......"Since the first time I met you,
..I couldn't seem to forget you.
.......And lately I seem to find,
..That you're always on my mind.
.......Whenever I see you smile,
..It makes my life so very worthwhile.
......And ever since the very start,
.....You have always been there in my heart.
..Then I heard that you felt the same way,
......And those words were so easy to say."

A few musts [In reply to] Can't Post

1. "I feel thin. Sort of stretched. Like butter scraped over too much bread." - Bilbo
2. "A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to." - Gandalf
3. "I would cut off your head, dwarf. If it stood but a little higher from the ground." - Eomer
4. "So fair, so cold, like a morning of pale spring still clinging to winter's chill." - Grima Wormtongue
5. "I can avoid being seen if I wish. But to disappear entirely... that is a rare gift." - Aragorn
6. "Darkness crept back into the forests of the world. Rumor grew of a Shadow in the East...whispers of a nameless fear." - Galadriel
7. "Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For not even the very wise can see all ends." - Gandalf
8. "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve." - Bilbo
9. "I ain't been dropping no eaves, sir, honest! I was just cutting the grass under the window there, if you follow me." - Sam

And my absolute favorite *drumroll* - Elrond's depression-acceleration speech:

10. "Whether by the sword or the slow decay of time, Aragorn will die. And there will be no comfort for you, no comfort to ease the pain of his passing. He will come to death, an image of the splendor of the kings of Men in glory undimmed before the breaking of the world. But you, my daughter, you will linger on in darkness and in doubt as nightfall in winter that comes without a star. Here you will dwell bound to your grief under the fading trees, until all the world is changed, and the long years of your life are utterly spent." - Elrond
