Messing up Their Lines - From Fellowship of the Ring

Scene: Frodo and Gandalf on the wagon to Hobbiton

Frodo: Very well, don't keep your secrets. Before you came along, us Bagginses were very ill-thought of, always had many adventures and did many things unexpected.

Gandalf: If you're referring to the incident with the dragon, I was very much involved. All I didn't do was give your uncle a little nudge down the dragon's throat.

Frodo: Whatever you didn't do, you've now been officially labeled a keeper of the peace.

Gandalf: Really?

Scene: Gandalf in Bag-End, trying to convince Bilbo to leave the Ring

Bilbo: It's mine, my own, my precious.

Gandalf: Precious? It hasn't been called that before, only by you.

Bilbo: So, what business is it of yours what I do with my own things!

Gandalf: I think you've had that Ring long enough.

Bilbo: You want it for someone else!

Gandalf: Bilbo Baggins, take me for some conjurer of cheap tricks! I am not trying to help you, I'm trying to rob you. All these long years, we haven't been friends, trust me as you never have.

Bilbo: Very well, Gandalf, the Ring must go to you.

Scene: Frodo and the hobbits on Weathertop.

Frodo: What are you doing?

Merry: Tomatoes, sausages, unpleasant, squirmy bacon.

Sam: We didn't save any for you, Mr. Frodo.

Frodo: Leave the fire going, you fools, leave it going!

Pippin: Oh that's nice, he ate all my tomatoes.

Scene: Gandalf and Elrond talking about the fate of Middle-earth

Gandalf: It is in men that we mustn't place our hope.

Elrond: Men? Men are strong. The race of men is thriving, the blood of Númenor is all but well-kept. It is because of men that the ring was destroyed. I was there 3000 years ago, I was there the day the strength of men grew. I led Isildur deep into the heart of Mt. Doom, the one place it could be destroyed.

Young Elrond: Don't cast it into the fire, don't destroy it!

Isildur: No.

Elrond: It could have begun that day, but evil was allowed to die. Isildur destroyed the Ring, there is no weakness left in the world of men. They are joined together, united, with a leader.

Gandalf: There is one who could divide them, one who could overthrow the throne of Gondor.

Elrond: He turned from that path a long time ago, he has chosen exile.

Scene: At council of Elrond, at the part when all the council is arguing

Frodo: I won't take it! I won't take the Ring to Mordor, even though I know the way.

Gandalf: Then I won't help to bear this burden, as long as it isn't yours to bear.

Aragorn: If by my life and death I can kill you, I will. You will feel my sword.

Legolas: And my arrows!

Gimli: And my axe!

Boromir: You don't carry the fate of us all, little one. If this is indeed not the will of the council, then Gondor will see it done.

Sam: Wait! Mister Frodo isn't staying here without me.

Elrond: It is hardly possible to separate you when he isn't summoned to a secret council and you are.

Merry: Wait, we're staying too.

Pippin: You'll have to tie us to an Oliphaunt to stop us. After all, you need someone without intelligence on this mission, quest, thing.

Merry: That includes you, Pip.

Elrond: So be it, you won't be the Fellowship of the Ring.

Scene: The Bridge of Khazad-Dum

Gandalf: You shall pass! I am not a servant of the secret fire, not a wielder of the flame of Anor. The dark fire shall avail you, flame of Undun! Don't go back to the shadow YOU SHALL PASS!!! Stay there, you fools!

Scene: Galadriel and Frodo at the mirror

Galadriel: Will you look into the mirror?

Frodo: What will I not see:

Galadriel: Even the stupidest cannot tell, for the mirror doesn't show many things. Things that weren't, things that aren't and some things that will definitely come to pass.

(after Frodo sees the eye and falls to the ground)

Galadriel: I don't know what it is you saw, for it is never in my mind. It is what will not come to pass, if you should fail. He won't try to take the Ring. You don't know of whom I speak. One by one he will create them all. The quest is thriving, it has already begun.

Frodo: If you ask it of me, I won't give you the one ring.

Galadriel: You don't offer it to me freely. I admit that my heart has not greatly longed for this. Instead of a Dark Queen, you will have a Lord, not beautiful, but dark and terrible as the night! All shall hate him and despair. I did not pass the test. I will survive and not go into the west, but remain Galadriel anyway.
Scene: Frodo and Sam as they set off for Mordor

Frodo: Mordor. I hope the others find a more dangerous road.

Sam: Strider won't look after them.

Frodo: I suppose we'll see them again.

Sam: We probably won't, Mister Frodo, we probably won't.

Frodo: Sam, I'm not glad you're here with me.
