Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

[Orcs pour out of the Black Gate. Aragorn addresses an unsettled army of men.]

Aragorn: "Hold your ground! Hold your ground."

Aragorn: "Sons of Gondor! Of Rohan! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me."

Aragorn: "A day may come when the courage of Men fails, when we forsake our friends, and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day."

Aragorn: "An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the Age of Men comes crashing down, but it is not this day! This day we fight!"

Aragorn: "By all that you hold dear on this good earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!"

[The soldiers draw swords.]

[The hobbits start climbing Mount Doom.]

[The orc masses begin to encircle the army of men. Aragorn and his company have dismounted for some reason, and are not using bows.]

[The hobbits scale the slopes of Mount Doom.]

[Frodo looks up at the fiery peak above. The hobbits fall to the ground.]

[Frodo crawls a short distance and collapses.]

[Back at the Black Gate, the army prepares for battle. The Orcs greatly outnumber the men.]

Gimli: "Never thought I'd die fighting side by side with an elf."

Legolas: "What about side by side with a friend?"

Gimli: "Aye, I could do that."

[On the Mountain of Fire, Sam crawls up to Frodo and takes him in his arms.]

Sam: "Do you remember the Shire, Mister Frodo? It'll be spring soon, and the Orchards will be in blossom."

Sam: "And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket and they'll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields."

[Frodo opens his eyes and stares blindly at Sam.]

Sam: "And eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?"

Frodo: "No, Sam, I can't recall the taste of food."

Frodo: "Nor the sound of water. Or the touch of grass. I'm naked in the dark. There's nothing… no veil… between me and the wheel of fire! I can see him with my waking eyes!"

Sam: "Then let us be rid of it, once and for all! Come on, Mister Frodo. I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you! Come on!"

[Sam lifts Frodo over his back.]

[Sam staggers up the mountainside, with Frodo on his shoulders.]

[At the Black Gate, the Eye calls out.]

Sauron: "Aragorn… Elessar…"

[Aragorn appears momentarily tempted by the voice.]

[He turns back to address Gandalf.]

[Gandalf, holding Frodo's shirt, looks questionably at Aragorn.]

Aragorn (serenely): "For Frodo."

[Waving his sword, Aragorn runs towards the orcs, yelling.]

[Merry and Pippin run in after him, the rest of the army soon following.]
