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?

Gimli: Truly Elrond spoke, saying that we could not foresee what we might meet upon our road. Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back. But I would not have come, had I known the danger of light and joy.

Elrond: On the road, you may see really, really beautiful, radiant women.

Gimli: I don’t think I can go

They have taken the bridge and the second hall. We have barred the gates but cannot hold them for long. The ground shakes, drums… drums in the deep.

Tolkien: so they have to get inside Moria…hmmm…okay, so there’s a doorway, but it has a riddle they need to solve.

Tolkien: just got a great idea for a riddle. Awesome. That’ll make for a good scene.

Tolkien: also, you know what? A water monster is trying to kill them. I’ll add that in too.
