[enigmatically] You're a good lad, Frodo. I'm very selfish, you know. Yes, I am. Very selfish. I don't know why I took you in after your mother and father died but it wasn't out of charity. I think it was because... of all my numerous relations, you were the one Baggins that showed real spirit.
Bilbo, have you been at the Gaffer's home brew?
Well, yes, but that's not the point...
[after Frodo is stabbed by the Witch King]
Sam, do you know the Athelas plant?
Kingsfoil, aye, it's a weed.
It may help to slow the poison. Hurry!
I once knew every spell in all the tongues of Elves... Men... and Orcs.
What are you going to do, then?
Knock your head against these doors, Peregrin Took! And if that does not shatter them, and I am allowed a little peace from foolish questions, I will try to find the opening words.
[Frodo awakens to hear Aragorn singing in the dark]
Who is she? This woman you sing of?
'Tis the Lay of Lúthien. The Elf-maiden who gave her love to Beren, a mortal.
What happened to her?
She died. [He sighs, turns back to Frodo]
Get some sleep, Frodo.
