Theoden: I will not risk open war.
Aragorn: Open war is upon you whether you would risk it or not.

[to the Orcs] There will be no Dawn... for Men.

Saruman

Legolas: Look at them. They're frightened. You can see it in their eyes.
[All the men turn to look at him]
Legolas: [in Elvish] And they should be. Three hundred... against ten thousand!
Aragorn: [also in Elvish] They have a better chance defending themselves here than at Edoras...
Legolas: Aragorn
[in Elvish]
Legolas: They cannot win this fight. They are all going to die!
Aragorn: Then I shall die as one of them!

Sam: It's the Ring, isn't it?
Frodo: It's getting heavier.

The battle of Helm's Deep is over; the battle for Middle Earth is about to begin.

Gandalf

Gimli: It's true you don't see many dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for dwarf men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.
Gimli: And this in turn has given rise to the belief that there are no dwarf women, and that dwarves just spring out of holes in the ground!
[Eowyn laughs]
Gimli: Which is, of course, ridiculous.

Arwen: Go to sleep.
Aragorn: I am asleep. This is a dream.
Arwen: Then it is a good dream.

Aragorn: Farmers, ferriers, stable boys. These are no soldiers.
Gimli: Most have seen too many winters.
Legolas: Or too few.

Frodo: [waking up from a nightmare] Gandalf!
Sam: What is it Mister Frodo?
Frodo: Nothing... just a dream.

[to Sam] Stupid, fat hobbit.

Gollum

Sam: This looks strangely familiar.
Frodo: Because we've been here before. We're going in circles!

Sam: There are dead things! Dead faces in the water.
Gollum: All dead... all rotten. Elves and men and orcses. A great battle, long ago. The Dead Marshes... yes, that is their name.

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Quotes

Look to my coming on the first light of the fifth day, at dawn look to the east.

Gandalf

There is no curse in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of men for this treachery. My business is with Isengard tonight, with rock and stone. Come, my friends. The Ents are going to war. It is likely that we go to our doom. The last march of the Ents.

Treebeard
