Quotations from The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is an epic action-adventure fantasy film that continues the plot from the previous film, but interweves three separate storylines as Frodo and Same go towards Mordor, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli go towards Rohan, and Merry and Pippin meet Treebeard the Ent and helps set up an attack on Isengard. Directed by Peter Jackson. Starring Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Billy Boyd, and Sean Astin.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is an incredibly long film, but became an instant classic the moment it hit theaters. Like the rest of the trilogy, The Two Towers has a large following. Read some quotes from it below.
Gandalf: You cannot pass!
Gandalf: I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. Go back to the shadow. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udun! You shall not pass! Galadriel: The power of the enemy is growing. Sauron will use his puppet Saruman to destroy the people of Rohan. Isengard has been unleashed. The Eye of Sauron now turns to Gondor, the last free kingdom of men. His war on this country will come swiftly. He senses the Ring is close. The strength of the Ringbearer is failing. In his heart, Frodo begins to understand. The quest will claim his life. You know this. You have foreseen it. It is the risk we all took. In the gathering dark, the will of the Ring grows strong. It works hard now to find its way back into the hands of men. Men, who are so easily seduced by its power. The young captain of Gondor has but to extend his hand, take the Ring for his own and the world will fall. It is close now, so close to achieving its goal. For Sauron will have dominion over all life on this Earth, even unto the ending of the world. The time of the elves is over. Do we leave Middle-Earth to its fate? Do we let them stand alone?
Gimli: Oh come on, we can take 'em.
Aragorn: It's a long way.
Gimli: Toss me.
Gimli: I cannot jump the distance, you'll have to toss me.
[pauses, looks up at Aragorn]
Gimli: Don't tell the elf.
Aragorn: Not a word.
Pippin: It's talking, Merry. The tree is talking.
Gandalf: Gandalf? Yes... that was what they used to call me. Gandalf the Gray. That was my name.
Gandalf: *I* am Gandalf the White. And I come back to you now - at the turn of the tide.
Gollum: We be nice to them, if they be nice to us.
Aragorn: Not idly do the leaves of Lorien fall.
Legolas: They may yet be alive.
Sam: There are dead things! Dead faces in the water.
Gollum: All dead... all rotten. Elves and men and orcses. A great battle, long ago. The Dead Marshes... yes, that is their name.
Gollum: He wants the precious. Always he is looking for it. And the precious is wanting to go back to him... But we mustn't let him have it.
Aragorn: Farmers, ferriers, stable boys. These are no soldiers.
Gimli: Most have seen too many winters.
Legolas: Or too few.
Gimli: My lady...
Eowyn: Lord Aragorn... where is he?
Gimli: He fell.
