Category: one ring

Gandalf: All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. 

Frodo: I mean…yeah. 

Frodo: That’s just life. You have to decide things until you die. 

Frodo: That doesn’t help me at all. Unless you’re telling me to kill myself, and make the ring someone else’s problem? I suppose that would work though. 

Frodo: I will be the ringbearer. 

Gandalf: Oh jeez, Frodo is going to carry it? He’s so tiny, it’s going to take forever to walk to Mordor. 

Elrond: True. But what if someone carried him there?

*Long silence*

Aragorn: I will be the Hobbitbearer. 

Sauron’s power was in the one ring. Frodo threw the ring into lava. Now Sauron’s power is infused into the geological body of middle earth. That was his plan all along. So obvious.

‘Hold it up!’ said Gandalf. ‘And look closely!’

As Frodo did so, he now saw fine lines, finer than the finest pen-strokes, running along the ring, outside and inside: lines of fire that
seemed to form the letters of a flowing script. They shone piercingly
bright, and yet remote, as if out of a great depth. They read “If lost, return to Barad-Dur.” 

The english version of the “one ring to rule them all” speech rhymes because Sauron wrote that version right after writing the Black Speech version because he cared about coming across as dramatic everyone that heard that poem. 

Wait if Sauron’s ring is “one ring to find them” doesn’t that mean he needs the ring to find the Nazgul? What’s the ring finding? Good deals? Shows to watch? He already seems to know where the Nazgul rings and dwarf rings are, so what’s there to find?

Frodo obviously becomes very concerned when he learns that Sauron wants to find him, but I have a hard time taking that scene seriously because 

“O Gandalf, best of friends, what am I to do?”

is just a ridiculous line that makes me laugh every time. 

Gandalf tells Frodo, “The Ring has awoken. It’s heard its master’s call,” which implies that the ring was asleep while Gollum had it, which I assume was the ring going into a coma to avoid hearing Gollum talking about fish or whatever. 

Frodo: The ring is mine!

Sam: You were the chosen one! It was said that you would destroy Sauron, not join him!

The Silmarils: created by Feanor, shine with the light of the two trees, hallowed by Varda.

The One Ring: created by Sauron, gives dominion over others, incredibly powerful.

The Arkenstone: shiny rock that the dwarves found? Just very shiny and neat?
