A meek Hobbit from the Shire and eight companions set out on a journey to destroy the powerful One Ring and save Middle Earth from the Dark Lord Sauron.

You cannot pass! I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the Flame of Anor. The dark fire will not avail you, Flame of Udun! Go back to the shadow. You shall not pass!
– Gandalf

Nobody tosses a Dwarf.
– Gimli

I wouldn’t count on it.
– Merry

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its Black Gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the Great Eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust, the very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly.
– Boromir

I made a promise, Mr Frodo. A promise. “Don’t you leave him Samwise Gamgee.” And I don’t mean to. I don’t mean to.
– Sam

Here’s a pretty thing: Mithril. As light as a feather, and as hard as dragon-scales.
– Bilbo

Think I’m gettin’ the hang of this!
– Sam

This is no mine. It’s a tomb.
– Boromir

Always remember, Frodo, the Ring is trying to get back to its master. It wants to be found.
– Gandalf

Keep it secret. Keep it safe.
– Gandalf

It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing. Such a little thing.
– Boromir

I think there’s more to this Hobbit than meets the eye.
– Gandalf

I know what I must do. It’s just… I’m afraid to do it.
– Frodo

It came to me, my own, my love… my… preciousssss.
– Gollum

They have a cave Troll.
– Boromir

You’re late.
– Frodo
A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to.
– Gandalf

You are full of surprises, Master Baggins.
– Gimli

Go back, Sam. I’m going to Mordor alone.
– Frodo
Of course you are. And I’m coming with you.
– Sam

Fly, you fools!
– Gandalf

I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
– Frodo
So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.
– Gandalf

Gentlemen, we do not stop ’til nightfall.
– Aragorn
What about breakfast?
– Pippin
You’ve already had it.
– Aragorn
We’ve had one, yes. What about second breakfast?
– Pippin
I don’t think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.
– Merry
What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn’t he?
– Pippin

I do not know what strength is in my blood, but I swear to you I will not let the White City fall, nor our people fail.
– Aragorn
Our people, our people. I would have followed you, my brother… my captain… my king.
– Boromir
Be at peace, Son of Gondor.
– Aragorn

It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill him when he had the chance.
– Frodo
Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.
– Gandalf

Not the beard!
– Gimli

Mordor… I hope the others find a safer road.
– Frodo
Strider’ll look after them.
– Sam
I don’t suppose we’ll ever see them again.
– Frodo
We may yet, Mr. Frodo. We may.
– Sam
Sam… I’m glad you’re with me.
– Frodo

This is it.
– Sam
This is what?
– Frodo
If I take one more step, it’ll be the farthest away from home I’ve ever been.
– Sam
Come on, Sam. Remember what Bilbo used to say: “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
– Frodo

Are you frightened?
– Aragorn
Yes.
– Frodo
Not nearly frightened enough. I know what hunts you.
– Aragorn

My dear Frodo. Hobbits really are amazing creatures. You can learn all there is to know about their ways in a month, and yet after a hundred years they can still surprise you.
– Gandalf

You cannot hide. I see you. There is no life in the void. Only death.
– Sauron

Concealed within his fortress, the lord of Mordor sees all. His gaze pierces cloud, shadow, earth, and flesh. You know of what I speak, Gandalf: a great Eye, lidless, wreathed in flame.
– Saruman
