"I know. It's all wrong. By rights we shouldn't even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something." Samwise
The scene where Aragon tells Frodo he would have gone into the fires of Mordor with him, rather than betray him. Then he marches out to face the horde of Uruk-hai. Such a poignant scene followed by such a bad ass scene of Aragorn regulating!
Dominic Monaghan as Merry Brandybuck is probably my favorite portrayal in Peter Jackson's Rings trilogy. And I've always enjoyed the moment where he and Pippin are mischievously lighting the fireworks at the beginning of Fellowship of the Ring.
Fellowship: Boromir blowing the Horn of Gondor. That scene is awsome! The music, the scenery, the action that culminates with Aragorn beheading the main baddie!
Fellowship again: Gandalf yelling "You shall not pass!"
Two Towers: Legolas shooting his arrows from afar, and hitting his targets, then being caught and lifted onto a horse. Awesome!
Return of King: The scene with the Voice of Saron telling Aragorn his mission is futile.
