Daily Dialogue — June 11, 2013

June 11th, 2013 by

Aragorn: Let the Lord of the Black Land come forth! Let justice be done upon him!
The Mouth of Sauron: My master, Sauron the Great, bids thee welcome. Is there any in this rout with authority to treat with me?
Gandalf: We do not come to treat with Sauron, faithless and accursed. Tell your master this: the armies of Mordor must disband. He is to depart these lands, never to return.
The Mouth of Sauron: Ahh, old Greybeard. I have a token I was bidden to show thee.

Pulls out Frodo’s mithril vest and throws it at them.

Pippin: [whispers] Frodo…
Gandalf: Silence.
Merry: No!
Gandalf: Silence!
The Mouth of Sauron: The halfling was dear to thee, I see. Know that he suffered greatly at the hands of his host. Who would’ve thought one so small could endure so much pain? And he did, Gandalf, he did.

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King (2003), screenplay by Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens & Peter Jackson, novel by J.R.R. Tolkien

    I love this scene which, as Debbie says, tugs on the old heart-strings regardless of what we know to be true or not….and then we also get a great pay off when Aragorn shows The Mouth of Sauron the edge of his blade – great stuff!
