I loved it when Gimli thrust his head up out of the snow on the Misty Mountain and said "We should go through the mines of Moria!" Adorable.

Remember that moment when Elrond called the meeting and the fellowship was formed? And Gimli said, "I'd rather be dead than see the ring in the hands of an elf!"? Well, we somehow noticed that Gimli actually spewed saliva during that encounter -- we took a closer look and were able to catch it in slow motion! What acting!

Deanna -- I know what you mean when a good quote is wasted on a non-fan. Very sad.

I love those quotes too!

I also loved in the Two Towers, where Aragorn and Gimli sneak outside of Helms Deep to come up behind the orcs. Aragorn says it's quite a jump and Gimli says "You'll have to toss me.... ugh... don't tell the elf." My husband and I laughed so hard!!!!

My hubby will once in a while quote "Certainty of death, small chance of success.. what are we waiting for."

HA HA!!!!

Okay... I'm such an LoTR geek, I'm looking forward to checking this thread all day long! HA HA HA!! It's the first LoTR conversation I've had in days!

All right everyone! It's been over 30 minutes! Where is the Lord of the Rings Adulations????

Do I have to post more Gimli quotes?

I've tried to talk our kids into naming our new dog "Frodo." She's a little chihuahua mix - and the name seems perfect for her, except for the fact that she's a little girlie. Oh well! Galadriel just a little too much for such a tiny cutie-pie of a dog.

Ok. I thought the bit in Two Towers where Gollum and Smeagol are having a conversation was so sad I cried! He tried so hard, and it was so pathetic to watch.
Also when Gandalf says 'Nobody who lives through hard times wants to live in them, but each makes the desicion how to live through them.' smile With all the hassle in this world, that catches my throat when I hear it.

Hi Nicola Jane, I totally agree. Those were both really beautiful scenes.

I loved in the Two Towers at the end when Frodo tried to walk up to the Ring Wraith and hand him the ring, and Sam tackled him to save him. When Sam went into his speech about heroes I just wanted to cry.

I love the soundtracks to the LoTR movies too. The music is very moving.

Ah, the soundtracks -- what georgeous music. One of the most memorable pieces of music for me was when Gandalf had just been lost to the Balrog and the fellowship had emerged from the mines. They were overcome with grief. To me, the music was grief personified.

Ok, another scene/quote that stands out for me is when they are in the underground city being chased by the demon. Everyone goes on across the bridge and Gandolf stays behind and bangs his staff into the bridge and screams "You shall not pass!" This moment is very moving for me and gives me chills every time.

That is a great scene. From the moment the goblins start coming after them I'm on the edge of my seat. Remember when that troll whacked Frodo and everyone thought he was dead? The whole chase scene is just remarkable.

One of my favorite pieces of music is in the Two Towers, when Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli enter the castle and the King is slouched on his throne. When Gandalf breaks the spell and the King remembers where he is --- I LOVE that music.

I also love in Return of the King when Sam and Frodo are laying on that desolate hill on their way to Mount Doom. Sam says something about it being springtime in the Shire, and the first of the strawberries should be coming in. Frodo says that he can't see anything... he's naked and alone in the darkness. When Sam says he may not be able to carry the ring, but he can carry Frodo - I LOVE that music too!
