Bilbo: I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread.

Gandalf: well you don’t look thin. Boom, roasted.


Theoden: Gandalf, you’ve brought me hope and cheer again.

Gandalf: I am glad to hear that, my good king.

Theoden: I finally feel like I have the strength to do what I want now.

Gandalf: And what is that.

Theoden: Die in battle


Gandalf: Don’t use the ring, Frodo. Keep it hidden.

Frodo: Why shouldn’t I use it?

Gandalf: if you put it on you become legally married to Sauron. Trust me, you don’t want that.


Kind of a dick move for Gandalf to tell Pippin about Valinor considering 1) Gandalf has no idea where Hobbits go when they die and 2) Pippin won’t even get to go there anyways because he’s not a ringbearer.

Ecthelion: *watching Gandalf fight the Balrog* oh man this is awesome, I can’t wait to talk with him about this once he gets back to Valinor

Ecthelion: okay, he just died, any minute now…

Ecthelion: wait what the hell? he gets to stay? this isnt fair at all


Erestor: We cannot seek to destroy the ring! That is the path of despair. 

Gandalf: It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not.

Frodo: You play the lottery every week, right?

Gandalf: of course. One of the days I’m definitely going to win the Mega Millions. There’s always a chance, you know. 


I love that Gandalf’s entire warning to Frodo to not use the ring, which he suspects is Sauron’s One Ring and could ruin Frodo’s life, is “hey if I were you I wouldn’t wear that. Ok Bye.”


“Frodo’s party was over and Gandalf had not come” refers to the fact that Gandalf is busy researching the history of the One Ring, but it just sounds like a petty line in some teen drama.
