Gandalf: Others dwelt here before hobbits were; and others will dwell here again when hobbits are no more.

Frodo: sorry are you threatening me right now?

When Frodo asked Sam “What are we holding onto?” Sam replies “There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”

This is an error in the film. In fact, the two are holding on to the One Ring, which they are carrying to Mordor. That’s the reason for their journey. Sean Astin improvised this response when he forgot what they were doing. 

Elrond: the fate of Middle Earth rests in you getting the ring to the fires, Frodo. 

Frodo: oh my! so then we should leave immediately, right? 

Elrond: nah, you can chill here for another few weeks.

Elrond: Also if you make it to Lothlorien, feel free to kill a month resting there too. No rush. 

A mortal, Frodo, who keeps one of the Great Rings, does not die, but he does not grow or obtain more life, he merely continues, until at last every minute is a weariness. Like when you’re in english class and look at the clock and it says 12:55, and then you look back again 30 minutes later and it says 12:57. That’s what having a Great Ring is like. 

Hey guys if your significant other ever asks you why you chose to be with them, the correct response is not to reply with Gandalf’s line to Frodo, “Such questions cannot be answered. You may be sure that it was not for any merit that others do not possess: not for power or wisdom, at any rate. But you have been chosen, and you must therefore use such strength and heart and wits as you have.”

Aragorn: I am Aragorn son of Arathorn; and if by life or death I can save you, I will. 

Frodo: wait by my death or your death?

Aragorn: My death. 

Frodo: oh that’s okay then. I mean, thanks. 

Bilbo: 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: That’s a good point, uncle Bilbo. I think I’ll stay indoors where it’s much safer. The outside world is too scary. 

*over in Valinor*

Mandos: Uh…guys, I think we have a problem. 

While wandering around Galadriel’s lembas factory, Frodo and Sam drank some elven Fizzy Lifting Drink. Galadriel was furious at them until Frodo offered her the one ring and then it turned out that Frodo won Lothlorien.

Boromir: you must be pretty special, little hobbit, to have been chosen for this great honor.

Frodo: thank you. I mean, someone has to carry the ri-

Boromir: yes, not many are worthy of going on a quest with Boromir the Great. You must be special indeed. Now, what are we doing again? Saving Minas Tirith? Let’s get going.

The ring bearer was wealthy Bilbo Baggin’s nephew, and three of his friends got to join the Fellowship of the Ring? Sounds like nepotism to me. Someone should into how Elrond chooses party members, there’s likely some corruption going on.
