A Gyűrű Szövetsége - Angol nyelvű szövegkönyv (I.)

I amar prestar aen... The world is changed.
han mathon ne nen... I feel it in the waters.
han mathon ne chae... I feel it in the earth.
a han noston ned gwilith... I smell it in the air.

Much that once was is lost. For none live who remember it.

It began with the forging of the Great Rings. 3 Rings to the Elves, immortal, wisest and fairest of all beings. 7 to the Dwarf lords, great miners and craftsmen of the mountain halls. And 9. 9 Rings were given to the race of Men, who above all else desire power.

For within these Rings was bound the strength and will to govern each race. But they were all of them deceived. For another Ring was made. In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret a Master Ring to control all others. And into this Ring he poured his cruelty, his malice, and his will to dominate all life. One Ring to rule them all. One by one, free lands in middle fell to the power of the Ring. But there were some who resisted. A last alliance of Men and Elves marched against the armies of Mordor. On the slopes of Mount Doom, they fought for the freedom of Middle-earth.

Elrond: Tangado a chadad! (Establish to hurling!)

Victory was near. But the power of the Ring could not be undone. It was in this moment, when all hope had faded, that Isildur, son of the king, took up his father's sword. Sauron, the enemy of the free people of Middle-earth, was defeated. The Ring passed to Isildur, who had this one chance to destroy evil forever. But the hearts of Men are easily corrupted, and the Ring of Power has a will of its own. It betrayed Isildur to his death. And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend; legend became myth. And for two and a half thousand years the Ring passed out of all knowledge. Until, when chance came, it ensnared a new bearer.

Gollum: My precious.

The Ring came to the creature Gollum who took it deep into the tunnels of the Misty Mountains. And there it consumed him.

Gollum: It came to me. My own my lost my own my precious.

The Ring brought to Gollum unnatural long life. For five hundred years it poisoned his mind. And in the gloom of Gollum's cave it waited. Darkness crept back in the forest of the world. Rumour grew of a shadow in the east, whispers of a nameless fear. And the Ring of Power perceived it's time had now come. It abandoned Gollum. But something happened then, that the Ring did not intend. It was picked up by the most unlikely creature imaginable.

Bilbo: What's this?

A hobbit. Bilbo Baggins of the Shire.

Bilbo: A ring.
Gollum: Lost!!!???????

For the time would soon come when hobbits would shape the fortunes of all.


Gandalf:
The road goes ever on and on,
Down from the door where it began, etc.
Frodo:
You're late
Gandalf:
A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early. He arrives precisely when he means to. (both laugh. Frodo jumps onto his wagon).
Frodo:
It's wonderful to see you, Gandalf!
Gandalf:
(laughs) You didn't think I'd miss your uncle Bilbo's birthday? (laughs)
Frodo:
What news of the outside world? Tell me everything.
Gandalf:
Everything? You're far to eager and curious for a hobbit. ???? well, what can I tell you? Life in the wide world goes on, much as it has this past age. All the comes and goings, scarcely aware of the existence of hobbits. For which I am very thankful.
Hobbit:
(waves) Look! It's Gandalf!
Gandalf:
Ooh - The long expected party. (Hobbits can be seen putting up a banner saying 'Happy Birthday Bilbo Baggins')
Gandalf:
So how is the old rascal? I hear it's going to be a party of special magnificence.
Frodo:
You know Bilbo. He's got the whole place in an uproar.
Gandalf:
Now, well, that should please him.
Frodo:
Half the Shire's been invited!
Gandalf:
Goodness
Frodo:
He's up to something
Gandalf:
Hmm... (mutters)
Frodo:
All right then, keep your secrets. Before you came along, we Bagginses were very well thought of.
Gandalf:
Indeed.
Frodo:
Never had any adventures or did anything unexpected.
Gandalf:
If you're referring to the incident with dragon, I was barely involved. All I did was give your uncle a little nudge out of the door.
Frodo:
Whatever you did, you're beneficially labelled a disturber of the peace.
Gandalf:
(mutters) Oh, really? (A hobbit sees Gandalf, and looks rather displeased) (Hobbit children are seen running through the fields)
Hobbit kids:
Gandalf! Gandalf's here!! Oh! Gandalf! GanDALF! etc, (Gandalf steers the wagon away, but lets some fireworks out of the back of the wagon. Hobbit children cheer ^-^ Gandalf laughs. Hobbit man laughs, but stops when he sees the look on his wife's face).
Frodo:
(Gets off the wagon) Gandalf - I'm glad you're back.
Gandalf:
So am I, dear boy. (mutters to himself:) So am I.
(Frodo runs off into the fields, Gandalf continues on to Bag End. Gandalf opens a gate, which reads 'No admittance except on party business.' Gandalf knocks on the door)
Bilbo:
No thankyou! We don't want any more visitors, well wishes, or distant relations!
Gandalf:
And what about very old friends.
Bilbo:
Gandalf?
Gandalf:
Bilbo Baggins
Bilbo:
My dear Gandalf!
Gandalf:
Good to see you. One hundred and eleven years old. Could you believe it. You haven't aged. (they both laugh)
Bilbo:
Come on, come in. Welcome, welcome. (Bilbo takes Gandalf's stick and hat).
Bilbo:
Tea? Or maybe something a little stronger. I've got a couple of bottles of the old wineyard left. 1296. Very good year. Almost as old as I am. It was laid down by my father. What's say we open one? Hey?
Gandalf:
Just tea, thankyou. (Gandalf hits his head on one of the lights. Then, as he's putting it straight, he hits his head on the ceiling). Ohh...
Bilbo:
(in the background) I was expecting you last week, but you come and go as you please... You caught me a bit unprepared, I'm afraid. (Gandalf looks at some maps on the table)
Bilbo:
I can make you some eggs if you like... Ganda- Gandalf? (Bilbo comes into the room, but Gandalf isn't there. Gandalf appears from behind him)
Gandalf:
Just tea, thankyou
Bilbo:
Oh, right... (mumbles with cake in his mouth) ...You don't mind if I do?
Gandalf:
Oh, no, not at all.
Female Voice:
(bangs on door) Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins. (bangs on door more loudly)
Bilbo:
I'm not at home! I've got to get away from these confounded relatives, hanging on the bell all day, never giving me a moment's peace. I want to see mountains again, mountains, Gandalf. And then find somewhere quite where I can finish my book... Ooh - tea!
Gandalf:
So you mean to go through with your plans?
Bilbo:
Yes, yes, it's all in hand. All the arrangements are made. (Bilbo gets the tea, and Gandalf takes the lid off for him).
Bilbo:
Oh, thankyou.
Gandalf:
Frodo suspects something.
Bilbo:
'Course he does. He's a Bagins! Not some blockheaded Bracegirdle from Hardbottle.
Gandalf:
You will tell him, won't you.
Bilbo:
Yes, yes.
Gandalf:
He's very fond of you.
Bilbo:
I know. He'd probably come with me if I asked him. I think in his heart, Frodo's still in love with the Shire. The woods, and the fields, little rivers. I'm old, Gandalf. I know I don't look it, but I'm beginning to feel it in my heart. I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter, stretched over too much bread. I need a holiday. A very long holiday. And I don't expect I shall return. In fact I mean not to.
(The night of the party. Bilbo are sitting on the top of a hill together)
Bilbo:
Old Toby! The finest weed in the south farthing.
(Bilbo blows a smoke ring, and Gandalf blows a ship that goes through it)
Bilbo:
Gandalf, my old friend. This will be a night to remember.
(fireworks go off, everyone cheers. Hobbits are dancing).
Frodo:
Go on, Sam, ask Rosie for a dance!
Sam:
I think I'll just have another ale...
Frodo:
No you don't! (Sam stands up for another ale, but Frodo pushes him towards Rosie. They dance). (Bilbo is telling a group of young hobbit children a story)
Bilbo:
So there I was, at the mercy of 3 monstrous trolls. And they were all arguing amongst themselves about how they were going to cook us. Whether it be turned on a spit, or if they should sit on us one by one and squash us into jelly!
Hobbit girl:
(gasps)
Bilbo:
And they spent so much time arguingthe whithertos and whyfors that the first sunlight crept over the top of the trees. -poof-
Hobbit kids:
(gasp)
Bilbo:
And turned them all to stone!
(Gandalf takes out some fireworks from a wagon in a tent. As he leaves, Merry and Pippin come out from behind the tent.)
Pippin:
(whispers) Quick! (Merry gives Pippin a leg up onto the wagon)
(Gandalf is letting off some butterfly fireworks for the young hobbit children)
Gandalf:
Oh! Off we go!
(Pippin takes out a cracker)
Merry:
No, no, the big one, big one (Pippin takes out a dragon shaped one. They light it)
Pippin:
It's done
Merry:
You're supposed to stick it in the ground.
Pippin:
It is in the ground
Merry:
Outside!
Pippin:
It was your idea (Cracker goes off. It lets out fireworks, then turns into a firey dragon. The hobbits scream and run away from it.)
Frodo:
Bilbo, watch out for the dragon
Bilbo:
Dragon? Nonsense, there hasn't been a dragon in these parts for a thousand years! The 'dragon' goes off in to the distance, and fills the sky with fireworks.
Hobbits:
oh! They cheer
Merry:
That was good!
Pippin:
Let's get another one
Gandalf:
(grabs them by the ears.) Meriadoc Brandybuck and Peregrin Took. I might have known.

Merry and Pippin are seen washing up the dishes.
The hobbit crowd
Speech! Speech, Bilbo! Speech! Speech! (The cheer and clap)
Frodo:
Speech!
(Bilbo walks up to the front of the crowd)
Bilbo:
My dear Bagginses and Boffins! (Cheers from the crowd) Tooks and Brandybucks! (More cheers) Grubbs! (cheers) Chubbs! (yet more cheers) Hornblowers! (cheers) Bolgers! (cheers) Bracegirdles! Proudfoots!
Proudfoot:
Proudfeet!
Bilbo:
Today is my one hundred and eleventh birthday! (Cheers from the crowd). Alas. Eleventy one years is far too short a time to live amongst such excellent, admirable hobbits. I don't like half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. I er ... I have things to do. (whispers). I've put this off far too long. I regret to announce this is the end. I'm going now. I bid you all a very fond farewell. (whispers) Goodbye (He vanishes, and the crowd gasps. He makes his way back to Bag End, still invisible, and takes off his ring once he has closed the door behind him.)
Gandalf:
I suppose you thing that was terribly clever
Bilbo:
Oh, come on Gandalf, could you see their faces!
Gandalf:
There are many magic rings in this world, Bilbo Baggins, and none of them should be used like that!
Bilbo:
It was just a bit of fun... Oh, you're probably right, as usual... You will keep an eye on Frodo, won't you?
Gandalf:
Two eyes, as often as I can spare them.
Bilbo:
I'm leaving everything to him.
Gandalf:
What about this ring of yours, is that staying too?
Bilbo:
Yes, yes. Take a look over there, on the mantlepiece... No, wait it's - here in my pocket. (Takes ring out and fingers it). Why - isn't that - isn't that odd, now. Yet after all that, why not. (whispers) Why shouldn't I keep it?
Gandalf:
I think you should leave the ring behind, Bilbo. Is that so hard?
Bilbo:
Well no... And yes. Now it comes to it, I don't feel like parting with it. It's mine! I found it! It came to me!
Gandalf:
There's no need to get angry.
Bilbo:
Well if I'm angry, it's your fault! ... It's mine. My own. My precious. (eyes bulge)
Gandalf:
Precious? It's been called that before, but not by you.
Bilbo:
Oh, what business is it of yours what I do with my own things?!
Gandalf:
I think you've had that ring quite long enough.
Bilbo:
You want if for yourself!!
Gandalf:
(Rises up, and becomes very angry)BILBO BAGGINS! DO NOT TAKE ME FOR SOME CONJUROR OF CHEAP TRICKS! I AM NOT TRYING TO ROB YOU!! (Becomes normal again). I'm trying to help you. (kneels down beside Bilbo, and places his hand on his shoulder). All these long years, we've been friends. Trust me, like you once did.
Bilbo:
You're right. The ring must go to Frodo. (Prepares to leave) The road is long... (Walks out the door)
Gandalf:
Bilbo. The ring is still in your pocket.
Bilbo:
Oh - yes. (slowly drops it onto the floor, and leaves). The road goes ever on and on, etc.
Gandalf:
(Walks back into the house. He leans over the ring, and reaches out the touch it, but sees a red eye. He sits by the fire, smoking).
Voice of Bilbo:
It's mine. My own. My precious

Gandalf:
Riddles in the dark...
Frodo:
(In the distance). Bilbo! (Opens door). Bilbo! (Leans over, and picks up the ring).
Gandalf:
A precious...
Frodo:
He's gone, hasn't he?
Gandalf:
(Lets out a puff of smoke)
Frodo:
He talked so long about leaving. I didn't think he'd really do it... Gandalf?
Gandalf:
(Turns around to face Frodo)
Frodo:
(Shows Gandalf the ring in the palm of his hand)
Gandalf:
(smiles) Bilbo's ring. He's gone to stay with the Elves. He's left you Bag End. (He holds out an envelope to Frodo, who puts the ring into it. Gandalf seals the envelope with a red stamp). Along with all his possesions. The ring is yours now. (Gandalf holds out the envelope to Frodo, who takes it). (whispers) Put it somewhere out of sight.
(Gandalf prepares to leave).
Frodo:
Where are you going?
Gandalf:
There are some things that I must see to.
Frodo:
What things?
Gandalf:
Questions. Questions that need answering
Frodo:
You've only just arrived. I don't understand.
Gandalf:
(stops and turns around) Neither do I. (Leans over to face Frodo). Keep it secret. (Places his hand on Frood's shoulder). Keep it safe. (He leaves, and shuts the door)
Frodo: (Looks at the envelope in his hand).

Voice:
Shire! Shire! Baggins!
Nazgûl chant plays, Riders in Black are seen riding together. Then the scene switches to Gandalf, who is riding up a slope and looking out onto Mount Doom. He rides off to the White City into a building where many records are kept.

Gandalf:
(reads) The year 3434, of the Second Age. Here follows the account of Isildur, high king of Gondor, and the finding of the Ring of Power. (Images are seen of Isildur taking the Ring from the hand of Sauron). It has come to me, the One Ring, which shall be an heirloom of my kingdom. All that will follow in my bloodline shall be bound to its fate, for I shall risk no hand to the Ring. It is precious to me, though I abide with a great pain... The markings upon the band begin to fade. The writing at first was as clear as red flame, has all but disappeared, a secret now that only fire can tell.
Scene switches to a house in the Shire. It is dark, and a man and his dog are standing outside the door, when a Rider in Black approaches. The dog starts barking, but backs into the house.
Rider:
Shire. Baggins...
Hobbit:
Baggins is not here. They're up in Hobbiton.
(Rider leaves, scene switches to Hobbiton, where Frodo is at a party. He leaves the party and walks back to Bag End. He finds the windows open, and his papers flying about the house. Suddenly, he feels a hand on his shoulder. He turns around, and sees Gandalf.
Gandalf:
Is it secret? Is it safe?
Frodo:
(Searches in a box, where he finds the envelope he put the ring into) Ah.
Gandalf:
(Grabs it from him, and throws it into the fire.)
Frodo:
What are you doing?
Gandalf:
(Takes it out from the fire with tongs, and holds it out to Frodo). Hold out your hand, Frodo. It's quite cool.
Frodo:
(Takes the ring)
Gandalf:
What can you see? Can you see anything?
Frodo:
(Examines the ring). Nothing. There's nothing.
Gandalf:
(sighs in relief).
Frodo:
Wait - there are markings. It's some form of elvish. I can't read it.
Gandalf:
There are few who can. The language is that of Mordor. Which I will not utter here.
Frodo:
Mordor?!
Gandalf:
In the common tongue, it says 'One Ring to Rule them all, One Ring to find them. One Ring to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.'
(Gandalf sits at the table, smoking, while Frodo makes tea)
Gandalf:
This is the One Ring, forged by the Dark Lord, Sauron in the fires of Mount Doom, taken by Isildur from the hand of Sauron himself.
Frodo:
Bilbo found it. In Gollum's cave.
Gandalf:
Yes. For 60 years the Ring lay quiet, in Bilbo's keeping, prolonging his life, delaying old age. But no no longer, Frodo. Evil is stirring in Mordor. The Ring has awoken. It's heard it's Master's call.
Frodo:
But he was destroyed. Sauron was destroyed.
Gandalf:
(whispers) No, Frodo. The spirit of Sauron endured. His life force is bound to the Ring, and the Ring survived. Sauron has returned. His Orcs have multiplied, his fortress of Barad-dûr is rebuilt in the land of Mordor. Sauron needs only this Ring to cover all the lands of a second Darkness. He is seeking it. Seeking it, all his thought is bent on it. (whispers)The ring yearns above all else to return to the hand of its Master. They are one. The Ring, and the Dark Lord. Frodo. He must never find it.
Frodo:
(Takes the envelope, and walks into the next room, as though seeking for a place to hide it). Alright. We put it away. We keep it hidden. We never speak of it again. No one knows it's here do they. Do they, Gandalf? (Turns around to face Gandalf)
Gandalf:
There is one other that knew that Bilbo had the Ring. I looked everywhere for the creature Gollum. But the enemy found him first. I don't know how long they tortured him for. But amidst the endless screams and the babble, they discerned two words.
Gollum
SHIRE! BAGGINS!
Frodo:
Shire! Baggins?! But that would lead them here!
Scene switches, and the Riders in Black are seen. A hobbit holds out a lantern.
Hobbit:
Who goes here?
One of the Riders swings a sword at his head.

Frodo:
Take it Gandalf! Take it! (Frodo holds out the Ring to Gandalf).
Gandalf:
No Frodo
Frodo:
You must take it!
Gandalf:
You cannot offer me this Ring.
Frodo:
I'm giving it to you!
Gandalf:
DON'T ... tempt me, Frodo!
Frodo:
(Frodo lowers his hand).
Gandalf:
I dare not take it. (whispers) Not even to keep it safe. Understand, Frodo, I would use this Ring from a desire to do good. But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.
Frodo:
But it cannot stay in the Shire!
Gandalf:
NO - no it can't.
Frodo:
(Closes his hand over the Ring) What must I do?
Gandalf:
You must leave. And leave quickly.
Frodo:
Where? Where do I go?
Gandalf:
Get out of the Shire. Head for the village of Bree.
Frodo:
Bree... What about you?
Gandalf:
I'll be waiting for you, at the Inn of the Prancing Pony.
Frodo:
And the Ring will be safe there?
Gandalf:
I don't know, Frodo. I don't have any answers. I must see the head of my order. He is both wise, and powerful. Trust me, Frodo. He'll know what to do. You'll have to leave the name of Baggins behind you, for the name is not safe outside the Shire. Travel only by day, and stay off the Road.
Frodo:
I can cut across countries easily enough.
Gandalf:
My dear Frodo. Hobbits really aren't basic 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.
(A clicking noise is heard. The camera view moves to the window)
Gandalf:
Get down. (He takes his staff, slowly moving towards the window, then points his staff out of the window, and hits something. Then he sticks his hands out of the window and grabs something. It turns out to be a hobbit. He drops him onto the table.)
Confounded old, Samwise Gamgee! Have you been eavesdropping?
Sam:
I haven't dropped no eaves, sir, honest. I was just cutting the grass under the window there, if you follow me.
Gandalf:
A little late for trimming the verge, don't you think?
Sam:
I heard raised voices...
Gandalf:
What did you hear? SPEAK!
Sam:
N-n-n-nothing important. That is I heard a great deal about a Ring, Dark Lord, and something about the end of the world, but, please Mr Gandalf, sir, please don't 'urt me. Don't turn me into anything - unnatural...
Gandalf:
No... Perhaps not... (whispers) I've thought of a better use for you
The next day, at dawn, Gandalf is seen leading his horse into the woods, with Frodo and Sam following him.
Gandalf:
Come along, Samwise, keep up. Be careful, both of you. The Enemy has many spies in his service... birds, beasts... (to Frodo:) Is it safe?
Frodo:
Puts his hand over his coat pocket.
Gandalf:
Never put it on. For the agent of the Dark Lord will be drawn to its power. Always remember, Frodo. The Ring is trying to get back to its Master. It wants to be found. (Gandalf rides off into the woods, birds are heard screeching).
Sam and Frodo set off.
Sam:
This is it
Frodo:
This is what?
Sam:
If I take one more step, it'll be the farthest away from home I've ever been.
Frodo:
Come on, Sam. (Takes his hand)
Sam:
(Takes step)
Frodo:
You remember what Bilbo used to say?
Bilbo:
It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step out onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.

Scene switches to Gandalf. He rides off to Isengard, to find Saruman, the head of his Council.
Saruman:
Smoke rises from the Mountain of Doom, and the hour grows late, and Gandalf the Grey rides to Isengard seeking my council. For that is why you have come, is it not? My old friend
Gandalf:
Saruman. (bows head)
Gandalf and Saruman are talking as they walk in the garden.
Saruman:
You are sure of this?
Gandalf:
Beyond any doubt.
Saruman:
So the Ring of Power has been found.
Gandalf:
All these long years, it was in the Shire, under my very nose.
Saruman:
Yet you did not have the wits to see it. Your love of the Halflings' leaf has clearly slowed your mind.
Gandalf:
We still have enough time. Time to counter Sauron if we act quickly.
Saruman:
Time? What time do you think we have?


The scene moves to Saruman's room.
Saruman:
Sauron has regained much of his former strength. He cannot yet take physical form, but his spirit has lost none of its potency. 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.
Gandalf:
(Whispers) The Eye of Sauron.
Saruman:
He is gathering all evil to him. Very soon he will summon an army great enough to launch an assault upon Middle-earth.
Gandalf:
You know all this? How?
Saruman:
I have seen it.

Gandalf and Saruman are walking into the hall.
Gandalf:
A palantír is a dangerous tool, Saruman. (walking towards the palantír).
Saruman:
Why? Why should we fear to use it? (Takes cover off palantír)
Gandalf:
They are not all accounted for, the lost Seeing Stones. You do not know who else may be watching. (Puts the cover back onto the palantír)
Saruman:
The hour is later than you think. Sauron's forces are already moving. The Nine have left Mordor.
Gandalf:
(whispers)The Nine.
Saruman:
They crossed the river Isen on Midsummer's eve, disguised as Riders in Black.
Gandalf:
They've reached the Shire...
Saruman:
They will find the Ring, and kill the one that carries it.
Gandalf:
(whispers)Frodo! Frodo! (Makes for a door, but as he approaches it, it is closed. He makes for the other 3 doors, but each close as he heads for them).
Saruman:
You do not seriously think that a hobbit could contend with the will of Sauron? There are none who can. Against the power of Mordor, there can be no victory. We must join with him, Gandalf. We must join with Sauron. It would be wise, my friend.
Gandalf:
Tell me, friend. When did Saruman the wise abandon reason for madness?

Saruman pins Gandalf against the wall about the door, then lets him drop. They use their staffs to fight, but Saruman manages to take Gandalf's staff from him.

Saruman:
I gave you the chance of aiding me willingly, but you have elected a way of paying!
He then uses his staff to throw him to the top of the tower of Isengard.
Sam:
Mr Frodo? Frodo! FRODO! (Frodo comes into sight, and Sam sighs in relief.)
I thought I'd lost you.
Frodo:
What are you talking about?
Sam:
It's just something Gandalf said.
Frodo:
What did he say?
Sam:
"Don't you lose him, Samwise Gamgee." And I don't mean to.
Frodo:
Sam, we're still in the Shire. What could possibly happen?
Just then, Merry and Pippin come out from the bushes, and fall onto Frodo and Sam.

Pippin:
Frodo! Merry - It's Frodo Baggins!
Merry:
Hello, Frodo.
Sam:
(heaves Pippin off Frodo). Get of him!
Frodo:
What's the meaning of this?
Merry:
(To Sam) Hold these.
Sam:
You've been into Farmer Maggot's crop!
Farmer Maggot:
(Barking noises are heard) Hey! You get back here! ... You get out of my fields..., etc.
Sam:
(Stands holding the cabbages and carrots) OOh. (Drops them on the ground and follows the others into the cover of Farmer Maggot's crop.)
Merry:
I don't know why he's so upset. It's only a couple of carrots
Pippin:
And some cabbages. And then those empty bags of potatoes we left in last week. And then, the mushrooms, the week before!
Merry:
Yes, Pippin, my point is, he's clearly over reacting! Run!
They run, but come to the edge of a steep slope, and fall off it.
Pippin:
(Falls near a pile of animal manure)Oooh. That was close.
Merry:
Ahhh. Ohhh. I think I've broken something. (Pulls out a broken carrot from undernearth him)
Sam:
Trust a Brandybuck and a Took.
Merry:
What? It was just a detour. A shortcut.
Sam:
A shortcut to what?
Pippin:
(Spots something on the ground) Mushrooms!!
Sam, Pippin, and Merry and whispering, as they put some mushrooms into a bag.
Frodo:
I think we should get off the Road.
The sound of a horse neighing is heard, and the leaves rustle on the ground.
Frodo:
Get off the Road! QUICK!

The hobbits hurry off the Road, and find a hiding place under the roots of a tree. A Rider in Black comes dismounts, and comes towards their hiding place. Frodo is tempted to put on the Ring, but Sam stops him. Merry throws something off into the distance, and the Rider moves towards it. The hobbits leave their hiding place and run.

Merry:
What was that?
The hobbits are shown running through the woods in the dark. At least one Rider is nearby.
Merry:
Anything?
Frodo:
Nothing!
Pippin:
What is going on?
Merry:
That Black Rider was looking for something. Or someone... Frodo?
Frodo:
(Turns around to face Merry)
Pippin:
Get down!
The hobbits get down, and a Rider is seen nearby.
Frodo:
I have to leave the Shire. Sam and I must get to Bree.
Merry:
Right... Buckleberry Ferry. Follow me.
The follow Merry, but a Black Rider sees and chases them.
Merry:
Hurry! Follow me!
They run, and come to the river. Sam, Merry and Pippin are there, but Frodo is still being chased by a Black Rider.
Merry:
Sam, get the ropes! ... Get the boats out!
Sam:
Frodo!
The Hobbits:
Run, Frodo! ... No! ... Hurry! Come one!
The others have untied the boat, and it is drifting off.
Frodo:
Go!
Frodo runs, and manages to jump onto the boat. The Rider stops at the river bank, and turns around.
Frodo:
How far to the nearest crossing?
Merry:
The Brandywine Bridge. Twenty miles.
The Rider is seen riding off, and is joined by at least two other Riders in Black.


The hobbits are seen approaching the gate into Bree in the pouring rain.
Frodo:
Come on.
They knock on the gate. The gatekeeper opens a shutter, but it is too high up to see the hobbits, and opens a lower one.
Gatekeeper:
What do you want?
Frodo:
We're heading for the Prancing Pony.
Gatekeeper:
(Opens gate). Hobbits. Four hobbits! What business brings you to Bree?
Frodo:
We wish to stay at the inn. Our business is our own.
Gatekeeper:
Alright, young sir, I meant no offence. It's my job to ask questions after nightfall. There's talk of strange folk abroad. Can't be too careful.

The gatekeeper lets them in. Bree is full of men, or 'big folk', as the hobbits call them, and it is a rough area. One of the hobbits bump into one of the men, who says 'watch where you're going!' Eventually, they find the inn of the 'Prancing Pony', and enter it.

Frodo:
(walks up to the counter)Excuse me.
Innkeeper:
Good evening, little masters. If you're seeking accommodation, we've got some nice cosy, hobbit sized rooms available... Mr... er...
Frodo:
Underhill. My name's Underhill.
Innkeeper:
Underhill...
Frodo:
We're friends of Gandalf the Grey. Can you tell him we've arrived?
Innkeeper:
Gandalf... Gandalf... Oh.... yes! I remember. Elderly chap. Big grey beard, and pointy hat.
Frodo:
(Smiles and nods)
Innkeeper:
Not seen him for 6 months.
Frodo:
(turns around to face Sam, Merry, and Pippin)
Sam:
What do we do now?
The scene skips to the hobbits sitting at a table
Frodo:
Sam - he'll be here. He'll come
Merry:
(Comes to the table with a large mug of drink)
Pippin:
What's that?
Merry:
This, my friend, is a pint.
Pippin:
It comes in pints? I'm getting one. (walks off)
Sam:
Pippin, you've had a whole half already... (To Frodo). That fellow's done nothing but stare at you since we arrived.
Frodo:
(To innkeeper, as he walks past)Excuse me. That man in the corner. Who is he?
Innkeeper:
(Looks at the man) He's one of them rangers. Dangerous folk, they are, wandering in the wilds. What his right name is, I've never heard, but around here, he's known as Strider. (He walks off)
Frodo:
Strider...
Frodo fingers his Ring. He hears voices saying 'Baggins'
Pippin:
Baggins? Sure I know a Baggins. He's over there (Pippin is talking to some men, and points to Frodo). Frodo Baggins. He's my second cousin once removed on his mother's side and ... (The voices of the other people in the room drown out his voice)
Frodo:
(Anxiously makes his way towards Pippin to stop him) Pippin! (He grabs him, causing him to spill some of his drink)
Pippin:
Steady!
Frodo:
(Trips on the foot of one of the men, falling backwards. As he hits the ground, his Ring flies upwards, and it falls back down onto his finger, causing him to disappear).

The Black Riders are seen coming closer to the inn: they are drawn to its power. Frodo sees the world in darkness when he puts on the Ring. There are many shadows, and he hears a voice.

Voice:
You cannot hide. I see you.

Frodo:
(He sees a great red Eye, and pulls the Ring off his finger. Just as he is recovering, he finds a hand on his shoulder. The man, Strider pulls him up the stairs into his room).
Strider:
You draw far too much attention to yourself, Mr Underhill.
Frodo:
What do you want?
Strider:
A little more caution from you, that is no trinket you carry.
Frodo:
I carry nothing.
Strider:
Indeed. I can avoid being seen if I wish. But to dissapear entirely. That is a rare gift. (he pinches the candles in the room to put them out, and takes off his hood)
Frodo:
Who are you?
Strider:
Are you frightened?
Frodo:
Yes.
Strider:
Not nearly frightened enough. I know what hunts you.
The door is opened, and Strider draws his sword. Merry, Pippin, and Sam are seen standing in the doorway. Sam has his fists held forward.
Sam:
... We'll have you ... longshanks, etc.
Strider:
You have a stout heart for a hobbit (Puts his sword away) But that will not save you. You can no longer wait for the wizard, Frodo. They're coming.
The scene switches to the Black Riders. The gatekeeper hears them coming to the gate, and walks towards it. The Black Riders knock down the gate, and enter Bree.

The scene switches back to the hobbits, who a sleeping. Then we see the Black Riders approach, and enter the hobbit rooms. There is a Rider standing over each bed, and in unison, they thrust their swords into them. They do this several times, but when they take the blankets off, they find that there was no one sleeping in the beds. They turn over the beds, and ride off.
The scene switches back to Strider, who is sitting by the window with the hobbits, who have awoken.
Frodo:
What are they?
Aragorn:
They were once men. Great kings of Men. Then Sauron the deceiver gave to them 9 Rings of Power. Blinded by their greed, they took them without questioning, one by one, falling to Darkness. Now they are slaves to his will. They are the Nazgûl. Ringwraiths. Neither living nor dead. At all times they feel the presence of the Ring. Drawn to the power of the One. They will never stop hunting you.

The next day, Strider is seen leading a pony into the countryside, with the hobbits following him.
Frodo:
Where are you taking us?
Strider:
Into the wild.
Merry:
How do we know this Strider is a friend of Gandalf's?
Frodo:
We have no choice but to trust him.
Sam:
But where is he leading us?
Strider:
To Rivendell, Master Gamgee, to the House of Elrond.
Sam:
Did you hear that? Rivendell. We're going to see the Elves.

They walk on for some time. At one point, Strider hears the Hobbits whispering behind him, and realises that they have stopped.
Strider:
(turns around) Gentlemen. We do not stop 'till nightfall.
Pippin:
What about breakfast?
Strider:
You've already had it.
Pippin:
We've had one, yes. What about second breakfast?
Strider turns around, and continues on.
Merry:
Don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pippin.
Pippin:
What about elevensies? Luncheon. Afternoon tea. Dinner? Supper. He knows about them. Doesn't he?
Merry:
I wouldn't count on it.
Strider throws an apple back, and Merry catches it. He pats Pippin on the back. Then Strider throws another apple, which hits Pippin.
Frodo:
Pippin.
In Isengard: Saruman is using the Palantír
Saruman:
The power of Isengard is at your command, Sauron, Lord of the Earth.
Voice of Sauron
(In the language of Mordor) Build me an army worthy of Mordor!

The scene switches to a room in Saruman's tower.
Orc:
What orders from Mordor, my lord? What does the Eye command?
Saruman:
We have work to do.

The Orcs outside Isengard are uprooting all the trees. We see Gandalf on top of the tower of Isengard. Then we see the Orcs working down below, pulling down the trees.
Orc:
The trees are strong, my lord. The roots go deep.
Saruman:
Rip them all down.
Once again, we see Gandalf at the top of the tower of Isengard


The scene goes back to Strider and the hobbits.
Strider:
This was the great watchtower of Amon Sûl. We will rest here tonight...
Strider unwraps four swords, passes them out to hobbits.
Strider:
These are for you. Keep them close. I'm going to have a look around. Stay here.

Frodo is napping, wakes up to find the others have built a fire.
Frodo:
What are you doing?
Merry:
Sausages, tomatoes, nice crispy bacon!
Sam:
We saved some for you!
Frodo:
Put it out, you fools, put it out!
He stamps out the fire.
Pippin:
That's nice, ash on my tomatoes...
They look over the edge... Ringwraiths approaching. Frodo pulls out his sword.
Frodo:
Go! - nazgûl chant -
Hobbits retreat to the center of the ruin, stand back to back, not knowing where the Ringwraiths will come from. Five wraiths enter the ruin.
Sam:
Back you devils!!!

The Riders draw their swords, and swipe Merry, Pippin, and Sam out the way. Frodo falls backwards. The Riders stand over him with their swords, and Frodo puts on the Ring. He sees the faces of the Riders in bright light. The Riders say something in another language then stab Frodo in arm

Frodo:
Ahhhhhhhh (He takes the Ring off).
Sam:
Frodo! (He runs over to Frodo).
Frodo:
Sam...
Strider comes, his swords lit with fire. He takes on the Riders, and manages to drive them away.
Sam:
Strider! Help him Strider!
Aragorn:
He has been stabbed by a Morgul-blade. This is beyond my skill. He needs elvish medicine. Hurry! (He picks Frodo up over his shoulder, and they head off into the night.)
Sam:
We're 6 days from Rivendell! He'll never make it!
Aragorn:
Hang on, Frodo!
Frodo:
Gandalf... Gandalf...


A moth flies up to the tower of Isengard, where Gandalf is imprisoned. Gandalf catches the moth in his hand, and begins to speak to it in elvish.
Gandalf:
(something in elvish to moth) … Go…
(Orcs cutting down trees near Isengard) (Uruk-hai comes out from mud, and immediately kills the Orc tending it)


Strider and the hobbits have stopped walking.
Sam:
Mr Frodo? He's going cold!
Pippin:
Is he going to die?
Aragorn:
He's passing into the Shadow. He'll soon become a wraith like them.
Merry:
(Hears horses) They're close!
Aragorn:
Sam, do you know the athelas plant?
Sam:
Athelas?
Aragorn:
Kingsfoil.
Sam:
Kingsfoil, that's a weed.
Aragorn:
It may help to slow the poison. Hurry. (He gives Sam a torch, and then goes off to look for the weed. He finds some, and takes out a knife to cut it, but finds a blade at his throat.)

Arwen:
What's this, a ranger, caught off his guard?!

Arwen:
Frodo, im Arwen. Telin le thaed. Lasto beth nîn, tolo dan na ngalad. (Frodo... I am Arwen. I've come to help you. Hear my voice! Come back into the Light!)
Merry:
Who is she?
Arwen:
Frodo
Sam:
She's an Elf.
Arwen:
He's fading. He's not going to last. We must get him to my father. I've been looking for you for 2 days.
Sam:
Where are you taking him?!
Arwen:
There are 5 wraiths behind you. Where the other four are I do not know.
Aragorn:
Dartho guin Beriain. Rych le ad tolthathon. (Stay with the hobbits. I'll send horses for you.)
Arwen:
Hon mabathon. Rochon ellint im. (I'll take him. I'm the faster rider.)
Aragorn:
Andelu i ven. (The road is dangerous.)
Merry:
What are they saying?
Arwen:
Frodo fîr. Ae athradon i hir, tur gwaith nîn beriatha hon. (Frodo dies. If I can get him across the river, the power of my people will protect him.)
I do not fear them.
Aragorn:
Be iest lîn. (According to your wish.)
Ride hard, don't look back. (Arwen rides off with Frodo)
Sam:
What are you doing! Those Riders are still out there!!
Arwen:
Noro lim, Asfaloth, noro lim! (Ride fast, Asfaloth, ride fast!)
(Arwen is chased by 8 Riders, one reaches out for Frodo... Wraiths try to influence Frodo to put the Ring on.)
Arwen:
No! Frodo, you must not! (She reaches the river. Riders stop on the other side)
Riders:
(In a different language.) Give up the halfling, she-elf!
Arwen:
If you want him, come and claim him! (Arwen draws her sword. Riders start to cross river.)
Arwen:
Nîn o Chithaeglir
lasto beth daer;
Rimmo nîn Bruinen
dan in Ulaer!

(Waters of the Misty Mountains listen to the great word; flow waters of Loudwater against the Ringwraiths!)
(She's causing the river to drown the Riders).
Arwen:
Frodo! No! Frodo, don't give in! Not now! (whispers) What grace is given me, let it pass to him. Let him be spared. Save him.
Elrond: (Standing over Frodo)
Frodo, lasto beth nîn, tolo dan na ngalad! (Frodo, hear my voice, come back to the light!)
Frodo:
Where am I?
Gandalf:
You are in the house of Elrond, and it is 10 o'clock in the morning, on October the 24th if you want to know
Frodo:
Gandalf.
Gandalf:
Yes? Yes, I'm here. And you're lucky to be here too. A few more hours, and you would have been beyond our aid. But you had some strength in you. My dear hobbit.
Frodo:
What happened? Why didn't you meet us?
Gandalf:
Oh, I'm sorry Frodo. I was delayed.

(FLASHBACK:)
Saruman:
A friendship with Saruman is not lightly thrown aside. One ill turn deserves another. It is over. Embrace the power of the Ring, or embrace your own destruction.
Gandalf:
There is only one Lord of the Ring. Only one may bend it to his will, and he does not share power. (Jumps off tower onto eagle)
Saruman:
So you have chosen death.
(END OF FLASHBACK:)

Frodo:
Gandalf? What is it?
Gandalf:
Nothing.
Sam:
Frodo! Frodo!
Frodo:
Sam!
Sam:
Bless you, you're awake!
Gandalf:
Sam has hardly left your side.
Sam:
We were that worried about you, weren't we, Mr Gandalf!
Gandalf:
By the skills of Lord Elrond, you are beginning to mend.
Elrond:
Welcome to Rivendell, Frodo Baggins.
(Frodo walks around Rivendell with Sam, and meets Merry and Pippin. He embraces them. Then Frodo sees Bilbo)

Frodo:
Bilbo!
Bilbo:
Hello, Frodo, my lad!
Frodo:
Bilbo! (Reads:) There and Back Again - A hobbit's tale, by Bilbo Baggins. This is wonderful!
Bilbo:
I meant to go back. Wonder the paths of Mirkwood. Visit Lake-town. See the Lonely Mountain again. But age, it seems has finally caught up with me.
Frodo:
I miss the Shire. I spent all my childhood pretending I was off somewhere else, off with you on one of your adventures. But my own adventure turned out to be quite different. I'm not like you, Bilbo.
Bilbo:
My dear boy.
Sam:
(to himself) Now, what have I forgotton?
Frodo:
Packed already?
Sam:
No 'arm in being prepared
Frodo:
Thought you wanted to see the Elves, Sam.
Sam:
I do.
Frodo:
More than anything
Sam:
I did… It's just… We did what Gandalf wanted, didn't we? We got the Ring this far to Rivendell. And I thought, seeing now you're on the mend, we'd be off soon. Off home.
Frodo:
You're right, Sam. We did what we set out to do. The Ring will be safe in Rivendell. I am ready to go home.
Elrond:
His strength fully returns
Gandalf:
That wound will never fully heal. He will carry it the rest of his life.
Elrond:
And yet, to have come so far, still bearing the Ring, the hobbit has showed extraordinary resilience to its evil.
Gandalf:
It is a burden he should never have had to bear. We can ask no more of Frodo.
Elrond:
Gandalf, the enemy is moving. Sauron's forces are massing in the East. It's Eye is fixed on Rivendell. And Saruman, you tell me, has betrayed us. Our list of allies grows thin
Gandalf:
His treachery runs deeper than you know. The foul card Saruman has crossed Orcs with Goblin men. He's breeding an army at the cavins of Isengard. An army which can move in sunlight, and cover great distance and speed. Saruman is coming for the Ring.
Elrond:
This evil cannot be concealed by the power of the Elves. We do not have the strength to fight both Mordor and Isengard. Gandalf. The Ring cannot stay here. (music plays) (Dwarves, Elves, and Men arrive)
Elrond:
This peril belongs to all Middle-earth. They must decide now how to end it. The time of the Elves i0s over. My people are leaving these shores. Who will you look to when we've gone? The Dwarves? They hide in their mountains seeking riches. They care nothing for the troubles of others.
Gandalf:
It is in Men that we must place our hope.
Elrond:
Men? Men are weak. The race of Men is failing. The blood of Númenor is all but spent. It's pride and dignity forgotten. I was there the strength of men failed.

(FLASHBACK)
Elrond:
Isildur! Hurry! Follow me!
Elrond:
I led Isildur into the heart of Mt. Doom. Where the Ring was forged. The one place it could be destroyed.
Elrond:
Cast it into the Fire. Destroy it!!!
Isildur:
No...
Elrond:
Isildur!!!!!!
(END OF FLASHBACK)

Elrond:
It should have ended that day, but evil was allowed to endure. Isildur kept the Ring, the line of kings is broken, there's no strength left in the world of Men. They are scattered, divided, leaderless
Gandalf
There is one that might unite them. One who could reclaim the throne of Gondor.
Elrond:
He turned from that path a long time ago. He has chosen exile.
Boromir:
The shards of Narsil, the blade that cut the Ring from Sauron's hand. (He fingers the blade, and cuts his finger). Still sharp. (Sees Strider watching him.)
No more than a broken end.
(He puts the sword back in its place and walks off. As he walks off, the sword falls, but he does not pick it up).
(Strider picks up sword, and places it back in its place. He stands in front of the sword for a while.)
Arwen:
Why do you fear the past? You are Isildur's heir, not Isildur himself. You are not bound to his fate.
Strider:
The same blood flows in my veins. The same weakness.
Arwen:
You time will come. You will face the same Evil and you will defeat it. (in elvish) The Shadow does not hold sway yet. Not over you, not over me.
Arwen:
A si i-Dhúath ú-orthor, Aragorn. (The Shadow does not hold sway yet, Aragorn.)
Ú or le a ú or nin. (Not over you and not over me.)
Renich i lú i erui govannem? (Do you remember when we first met?)
Strider:
Nauthannen i ned ôl reniannen. (I thought I had strayed into a dream.)
Arwen:
Gwennin in enninath... Ú-'arnech in naeth i si celich. Renich i beth i pennen? (Long years have passed... You did not wear the troubles you carry now. Do you remember what I told you?)
Strider:
You said you'd bind yourself to me, forsaking the immortal life of your people.
Arwen:
And to that I hold. I would rather share one lifetime with you, than face all the ages of this world alone. (gives him the flower necklace she wears). I choose a mortal life.
Strider:
You cannot gives me this...
Arwen:
It is mine to give to whom I will. Like my heart.
(They kiss)
The scene switches to a part of Rivendell, where Dwarves, Elves, and Men are sitting in a semicircle.

Elrond:
Strangers from distant lands, friends of old. You have been summoned to answer the threat of Mordor. Middle-earth stands upon the brink of destruction.
None can escape it. You will unite, or you will fall. Each race is bound this fate, this one doom. Bring forth the Ring, Frodo.
Frodo:
(Places the Ring onto the table)
Unknown:
The Doom of Man.
Boromir:
So it is true... It is a gift... A gift to the foes of Mordor. Why not use this Ring? Long has my father, the steward of Gondor kept the forces of Mordor at bay by the blood of our people are your lands kept safe. Give Gondor the weapon of the Enemy! Let us use it against Him!
Aragorn:
You cannot wield it. No one can. The One Ring answers to Sauron alone. It has no other Master.
Bormir:
And would a ranger know of this matter?
Legolas:
This is no mere ranger. He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance.
Boromir:
Aragorn? This... is Isildur's heir?
Legolas:
An heir to the throne of Gondor.
Aragorn:
Havo dad, Legolas! (Sit down, Legolas!)
Boromir:
Gondor has no king. Gondor needs no king.
Gandalf:
Aragorn is right. We cannot use it.
Elrond:
You have but one choice. The Ring must be destroyed.
Gimli:
What are we waiting for (tries to smash Ring with axe, axe breaks)
Elrond:
The Ring cannot be destroyed, Gimli, son of Glóin by any craft that we here posses. The Ring was made in the fires of Mount Doom. Only there can it be unmade. It must be taken deep into Mordor and cast back into the firey casem from whence it came. One of you must do this.
Boromir:
One does not simply walk into Mordor. It's black gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is Evil there that does not sleep. And the Great Eye is ever watchful. 'Tis a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust. The very air that you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly.
Legolas:
Have you heard nothing that Lord Elrond has said? The Ring must be destroyed!
Gimli:
And I suppose you think you're the one to do it!
Boromir:
And if we fail, what then? What happens when Sauron takes back what is his?
Gimli:
I will be dead before I see the Ring in the hands of an elf! (All the Elves stand up, then the Dwarves, then everyone except Frodo). (Frodo hears the voice of the Ring)
Frodo:
I will take it! I will take it! (everyone else stops and listens to him) I will take the Ring to Mordor… Though … Though I do not know the way.

Gandalf:
I will help you bear this burden, Frodo Baggins. As long as it is yours to bear.
Aragorn:
By my life or death, if I can protect you, I will. (kneels beside Frodo) You have my sword.
Legolas:
And you have my bow.
Gimli:
And my axe
Boromir:
You carry the face of us all little one. If this is indeed the will of the council, then Gondor will see it done.
Sam:
Hey! Mr Frodo's not going anywhere without me.
Elrond:
No, indeed, it is hardly possible to separate you, even when he is summoned to a secret council, and you are not.
Merry:
Oi! We're coming too! You'd have to send us home tied up in a sack to stop us.
Pippin:
Besides, you need people of intelligence on this sort of message… quest… thing.
Merry:
Well that rules you out, Pippin.
Elrond:
Nine companions. So be it! You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring.
Pippin:
Right. Where are we going?
Bilbo:
My old sword, Sting. Here, take it, take it.
Frodo:
It's so light.
Bilbo:
Yes, yes… made by the Elves, you know? The blade glows blue when Orcs are near, and it's at times like that, my lad, when you have to be extra careful.(Holds up a chainmail vest) Here's a pretty thing. Mithril. As light as a feather, and as hard as dragons scales. Let me see you put it on!
Frodo starts to take off his shirt. Bilbo sees the Ring)
Bilbo:
Oh… my old ring! I should very much like to hold it again, one last time!
Frodo knows better, and buttons up his shirt again. Bilbo has an evil moment, then recovers.
Bilbo:
I'm sorry I brought this upon you, my boy. I'm sorry you must carry this burden. I'm sorry for everything!
Frodo comforts him.
The company leaves Rivendell, wanders past ruins, over mountains, through fields.
Gandalf:
We must hold to this course west of the Misty Mountains for forty days. If our luck holds, the Gap of Rohan will still be open to us, and from there our road turns east toward Mordor.
The company stop for a while. Boromir is teaching Pippin and Merry to sword fight.
Bormir:
Very good. Again!
Gimli:
If anyone were to ask my opinion, which I note they have not, I would say we're taking the long way around! Gandalf! We could pass through the Mines of Moria. My cousin Balin would give us a royal welcome.
Gandalf:
No, Gimli. I would not take the roads through Moria unless I had no other choice.
Aragorn:
(adds comments) Move your feet!
(Boromir accidentally hits Pippin).
Pippin:
Ahhh.
Bormir:
Sorry.
Pippin:
Get him!
Pippin drops his sword, kicks Boromir in the shins and tackles him. Merry joins in, and the two of them wrestle Boromir to the ground.
Unknown:
Arr, ow, etc. He got my arm, he got my arm…
Legolas notices something on the horizon.
Sam:
What is that?
Gimli:
Nothing, it's just a wisp of cloud.
Everyone looks.
Boromir:
Well, it's moving fast. Against the wind.
Legolas:
Crebain from Dunland! HIDE, etc.
Gandalf:
Spies of Saruman. The passage south is being watched. We must take the pass of Caradhras


(Climbing a snowy mountain. Frodo falls, and finds he has dropped the Ring. Boromir picks it up.)
Aragorn:
Boromir...
Boromir:
It is a strange fate. For which should suffer so much fear and doubt. One so small a thing. Such a little thing.
Aragorn:
Boromir! Give the Ring to Frodo.
Boromir:
As you wish.
(Frodo grabs it).
Boromir:
I care not. (laughs and ruffles Frodo's hair. He walks off, and Aragorn takes his hand off the hilt of his sword).
The birds seen in the previous scene make their way to Isengard, where Saruman is.
Saruman:
So Gandalf, you tried to lead them over Caradhras. And if that fails? Where then will you go? If the mountain defeats you, willl you risk the more dangerous road?
Legolas:
The is a foul voice from the air.
Gandalf:
It's Saruman!
Aragorn:
He's trying to bring down the mountain! Gandalf! We must turn back!
Gandalf:
No!!
Losto Caradhras, sedho, hodo, nuitho i 'ruith! (Sleep Caradhras, be still, lie still, hold your wrath!)
Saruman:
(Stands at the top of the tower of Isengard) Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë! Nai yarvaxëa rasselya taltuva ńotto-carinnar! (Wake up cruel Redhorn! May your blood-stained horn shall fall upon the enemy-heads!) Bow to the power of Isengard! (Hits mountain with lightening.)
(The Fellowship gets buried, but get out of the snow)
Boromir:
We must get up the mountain! Make for the Gap of Rohan! Or take the west road to.
Aragorn:
The Gap of Rohan takes us too close to Isengard.
Gimli:
If we cannot go over the mountain, let us go under it! Let us go through the Mines of Moria.
Saruman:
Moria. You fear to go into those mines. The Dwarves delt too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke there in the darkness of Khazad-dûm. Shadow, and flame.
Gandalf:
Let the Ringbearer decide… Frodo.
Frodo:
We will go through the mines.
Gandalf:
So be it.
Gimli:
The walls of Moria.
Gandalf:
Isildin. It mirrors only starlight and moonlight… (doors are revealed) It reads: The doors of Durin, Lord of Moria. Speak friend and enter.
Merry:
What d'you suppose that means?
Gandalf:
Oh, it's quite simple. If you are a friend, speak the password, and the doors will open. (tries out passwords): Ando Eldarinwa a lasta quettanya, Fenda Casarinwa! (Gate of Elves listen to my word, Threshold of Dwarves!), etc.
Aragorn:
The mines are no place for a pony. Even one so brave as Bill.
Sam:
Bub bye, Bill.
Aragorn:
Go on, Bill. Go on. Don't worry Sam. He knows the way out.
(Merry and Pippin are throwing stones into the water. As Pippin is about to throw one, Aragorn grabs him by the collar).
Aragorn:
Do not disturb the water.
(The camera shifts over to Gandalf, who takes off sits down and takes off his hat)
Gandalf:
Oh, it's useless
Frodo:
It's a riddle. Speak, friend, and enter! What's the elvish word for friend?
Gandalf:
Mellon.
(Doors open, the Fellowship walks into the mines)
Gimli:
Soon, mister elf, you will enjoy the fabled hospitality of the dwarves! Roaring fires, malt beer, red meat off the bone! This is the home of my cousin Balin. And they call it a mine. A MINE!
Boromir:
This is no mine. It's a tomb.
Gimli:
No! Nooo! NOOOO!
Legolas:
(takes out an arrow from a dead body) Goblins!
Boromir:
We make for the Gap of Rohan. We should never have come here! Now get out of here! Get out!!
(The Fellowship backs out, Frodo is taken by a tentacle from a creature in the water)
Frodo:
Strider!!!
Sam:
Strider!!!
The hobbits slash at the creature with thier swords
Sam:
Strider!
Unknown:
Aragorn!!
The hobbits manage to free Frodo from the creature, but as he backs away from the water, many tentacles come out from the water, this time swinging Frodo high up in the air. Legolas shoots the tentacles with his bow, while Boromir and Aragorn enter the water, and slash at the tentacles with thier swords. Aragorn cuts off the tentacle that is holding Frodo, and manages to catch Frodo as he falls.
Gandalf:
Into the mines!!! (The creature comes out of the water and crumbles the doors down, blocking the way out)
Gandalf:
You now have but one choice. You must face the long dark of Moria. Be on your guard. There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.
Gandalf:
It's a four day journey to the other side. Let us hope that our presence may go unnoticed.
(going upwards, Pippin lets some rocks fall onto Merry).
Merry:
Pippin!
Gandalf:
I have no memory of this place. (The company stops for a while)
