Galadriel: I grant you all this lembas. A single bite will fill a man for a day’s journey.
Pippin: about this lembas – is it more a magic thing, or is there some ingredient in it that’s so filling?
Galadriel: It’s more of a magic thing, i guess.
Pippin: cool. so can you magic me up some bacon instead? I’ll take magic bacon that keeps me full over some bread, please.
Merry: me too, thanks.
Boromir: Did I just hear something about magic bacon?
Galadriel: *handing over phial* May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out
Frodo: what do you mean ‘may it be a light’? Are you saying it might not work? Is this thing defective? Are you giving me trash?
Galadriel: You will give me this ring freely?
Frodo: No. But for three easy payments of 19.99, can you really afford to not take this ring?
Galadriel: Damn, that’s such a good point.
I recommend all teachers start their lessons with Galadriel’s quote to Frodo in front of the mirror, “You may learn something, and whether what you see be fair or evil, that may be profitable, and yet it may not. Seeing is both good and perilous.” It really gets your attention and makes the rest of the day seem important.
Yet another dinner with my family ending in disaster. This time it was because I said that if I did drag, my stage name would be Galadriel. They said I couldn’t use a name that’s already for a character. I said it’s a good name, with “lad” in the middle so it’s a pun, too. That’s when they asked me to leave.
Gimli: The hardest part of the quest? Aye, that was seeing the true beauty of the Lady Galadriel. As I said back then, I would have never come, had I known the danger of light and joy.
Frodo: The hardest part for me was probably being stabbed and poisoned by Shelob, or maybe by the Witch King. Or having my finger bitten off after I succumbed to the ring. It’s hard to pick.
When the Fellowship are staying in Lothlorien, I always picture everything being taken care of by magic. Beds are changed with magic, they clothes are magically cleaned, food appears, etc. But when they’re in Rivendell, I just figure Elrond has a few spare Noldor hanging around who wash their beds and do laundry.
My mom: I thought you liked the mashed potatoes with lots of chunks! Since when did you like them smooth?
Me: And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost.
Galadriel: I grant you all this lembas. A small bite will sustain a man for a full day.
Frodo: Wow, what gives them so much energy?
Galadriel: You know how dwarves are so hardy as a race?
Galadriel: We put some dwarf meat in the bread.
