Sam: Hey Stinker! Don’t go getting too far ahead!
Frodo: Why do you do that?
Frodo: Call him names; run him down all the time.
Sam: Because… because that's what he is, Mr. Frodo. There's naught left in 'im but lies and deceit. It's the ring he wants. It's all he cares about.
Frodo: You have no idea what it did to him. What it’s still doing to him. I want to help him, Sam..
Frodo: Because I have to believe he can come back.
Sam: You can’t save him, Mr. Frodo.
Frodo: What do you know about it? Nothing!
Frodo: I'm sorry, Sam. I don't know why I said that.
Sam: I do. It's the ring. You can't take your eyes off it. I've seen you. You're not eating. You barely sleep. It's taking a hold of you, Mr Frodo. You have to fight it!
Frodo: I know what I have to do Sam. The ring was entrusted to me! It's my task! Mine! My own!
Sam: Can’t you hear yourself? Don’t you know who you sound like?
Sam: It’s me. It’s your Sam. Don’t you know your Sam?
Frodo: I can’t do this, Sam.
Sam: 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?
Theoden: Victory! We have victory!
Sam: 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. Because they were holding on to something.
Frodo: What are we holding on to, Sam?
Sam: There’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.
Sam: I wonder if we’ll ever be put into songs or tales.
Sam: I wonder if people will ever say, ‘let’s hear about Frodo and the Ring.’ And they’ll say ‘yes, that’s one of my favorite stories. Frodo was really courageous, wasn’t he, dad.’ ‘Yes, my boy, the most famousest of hobbits. And that’s saying alot.’
Frodo: You left out one of the chief characters – Samwise the Brave. I want to hear more about Sam. Frodo wouldn’t have got far without Sam.
Sam: Now Mr. Frodo, you shouldn’t make fun. I was being serious.
Frodo: So was I.
Sam: Samwise the Brave.
