Gandalf halted before a tall door of polished metal. ‘See, Master
Pippin, there is no time to instruct you now in the history of Gondor. Do as I bid! It is scarcely wise when bringing the news
of the death of his heir to a mighty lord to speak over much of the
coming of one who will, if he comes, claim the kingship. Is that
“Don’t worry about it,” replied Pippin. “I’m great at meeting people. I’ll give him the ol’ razzle dazzle.” He entered the Great Hall.
“What?” said Gandalf.
I relate to Merry and Pippin because I too have told my friends that I was ride or die, only to wind up doing my own thing and having no idea what they were up to.
Once they found out he was immortal and could be sent back, I’m surprised Merry and Pippin didn’t try to get Gandalf to do outrageously dangerous stunts for their amusement.
For his entire time in the Fellowship, Boromir thought that Pippin’s first name was “Foolofa.”
The Fourth Age
Pippin: your majesty!
Aragorn: you don’t have to do that. Just call me Aragorn.
Merry: and pass up on a chance to call you your majesty? Not likely.
Pippin: *gesturing wildly* your excellence, this is madness. How could you suggest that?
Merry: your royal Aragornness, truly, we bow to thee.
Aragorn: please stop it.
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?
Pippin: I didn’t think it would end this way.
Gandalf: End? No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take.
Pippin: Thank you, that’s beautiful.
Gandalf: *taking out dagger* Some sooner than others…
Elrond: The Company of the Ring shall be Nine; and the Nine Walkers shall be set against the Nine Riders that are evil.
Pippin: Which of us is set against the Witch King specifically? I don’t want it to be me. Merry can do it, though.
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.
