Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
[Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli fight alongside the ghosts against the orcs.]
Legolas: "Fifteen, sixteen."
[As Aragorn's party fight towards the city, a wounded Éowyn crawls away from a snarling Gothmog.]
[Aragorn and Gimli approach Éowyn. Gothmog raises his mace to strike her.]
[Éowyn reaches for a sword, but it slips from her grasp.]
[Just before Gothmog strikes, Gimli and Aragorn cut him down.]
[Legolas turns to see a Mûmakil running towards him.]
[He leaps on it, and climbs towards the the top, shooting off enemies as he goes.]
Legolas: "Thirty-three, thirty-four."
[Legolas cuts the saddle rope. The platform slides off the Mûmakil.]
[Legolas walks to the head of the creature and shoots into its skull.]
[As the slain beast falls, Legolas gracefully slides off its trunk. He lands softly on the ground, with a smirk, right in front of Gimli.]
Gimli: "It still only counts as one!"
[The dead army begins to swarm through and up the city, destroying the orcs.]
[Elsewhere on the battlefield, Théoden lies under his dead horse.]
[Blood flows from his mouth. Éowyn crawls to his side. Théoden touches her gently.]
Théoden: "I know your face. Éowyn. My eyes darken."
Éowyn: "No. No, I am going to save you."
Théoden: "You already did. Éowyn, my body is broken. You have to let me go. I go to my fathers in whose mighty company I shall not now feel ashamed."
[Théoden dies in Éowyn's arms.]
[All is quiet.]
[The King of the Dead stands before Aragorn.]
King of the Dead: "Release us."
Gimli: "Bad idea."
Gimli: "Very handy in a tight spot, these lads, despite the fact they're dead."
King of the Dead: "You gave us your word!"
Aragorn: "I hold your oath fulfilled. Go, be at peace."
[The dead army dissipates into the wind.]
[Gandalf bows to the new king.]
[Survivors survey the scene of the battle and tend to the wounded.]
[Pippin finds an Elvish cloak and brooch.]
[Éomer spots his wounded sister and runs towards her.]
[Aragorn sees the two.]
[Later at night, Éowyn is treated at the Houses of Healing.]
[Éomer looks on with worried glances as Aragorn treats the wound from the Witch-King's touch.]
A melody plays as Éowyn regains her strength:
"With a sigh you turn away
With a deepening heart
No more words to say
You will find that the world has changed
[Éowyn rises from her bed. She sees Faramir, also wounded but healing, who smiles at her.]
The song continues:
"And the trees are now
Turning from green to gold
And the sun is now fading
I wish I could hold you
[In the night, at the side of a dead Mûmakil, Pippin finds an injured Merry.]
Pippin: "Merry! Merry, it's me. It's Pippin."
Merry: "I knew you'd find me."
Merry: "Are you going to leave me?"
Pippin: "No, Merry. I'm going to look after you."
[Pippin grabs a cloak and covers Merry with it.]
