Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
[The hobbits are sleeping. A figure climbs down from above them.]
Gollum: "You thieves! You thieves… You filthy little thieves! Where is it? Where is it? They stole it from us. My Precious."
[Gollum creeps closer.]
Gollum: "Curse them! We hates them! It's ours it is… and we wants it!"
[Gollum reaches out his hand towards the hobbits. The hobbits jump up and grab Gollum's arms and pull him down.]
[They struggle. Gollum gets loose and jumps on Frodo. They fall, and Gollum sees the Ring around Frodo's neck.]
[He desperately tries to get it, but Sam grabs him.]
[Gollum wriggles loose once more, and jumps on Frodo again. Sam gets a hold of him. Gollum bites him on the shoulder, and clasps his arms and legs around Sam. Frodo draws Sting and holds it to Gollum's throat.]
Frodo: "This is Sting. You've seen it before, haven't you — Gollum!"
Frodo: "Release him, or I'll cut your throat!"
[Gollum slowly loosens his grip on Sam and lets out a wail.]
[It is light again. Gollum has been tied at the neck with Sam's rope and is dragged along.]
Gollum: "It burns! It burns us! It freezes! Nasty elves twisted it. Take it off us!"
Sam: "Quiet you!"
Sam: "It's hopeless! Every orc in Mordor is gonna hear this racket! Let's just tie him up and leave him!"
Gollum: "No! That would kill us, kill us!"
Sam: "It's nothing more than you deserve!"
[Frodo looks at Gollum.]
Frodo: "Maybe he does deserve to die. But now that I see him, I do pity him."
Gollum: "We'll be nice to them, if they'll be nice to us. Take it off us."
Gollum: "We swears to do what you wants. We swears!"
Frodo: "There's no promise you can make that I can trust."
[Gollum kneels in front of Frodo and begs him.]
Gollum: "We swears to serve the Master of the Precious. We will swear on — on the Precious! (gollum gollum)"
Frodo: "The Ring is treacherous. It will hold you to your word."
Gollum: "Yes… on the Precious… on the Precious."
Sam: "I don't believe you! Get down! Get down!"
[Gollum, scared, tries to get away, but Sam jerks the rope and Gollum crashes to the ground.]
Sam: "He's trying to trick us! We let him go, he'll throttle us in our sleep!"
[Frodo approaches Gollum, who is panting and holding his throat.]
Frodo: "You know the way to Mordor?"
Frodo: "You've been there before?"
[Frodo takes the rope off Gollum's neck, and Gollum seems surprised.]
Frodo: "You will lead us to the Black Gate."
[Gollum rushes off and the hobbits follow him.]
[Gollum talks to himself.]
Gollum: "To the Gate, to the Gate! To the Gate, the masters says. Yes!"
Gollum: "No! We won't go back. Not there. Not to him. They can't make us. Gollum! Gollum!"
Gollum: "But we swore to serve the master of the precious!"
Gollum: "No. Ashes and dust and thirst there is, and pits, pits, pits. And Orcses, thousands of Orcses. And always the Great Eye watching, watching."
[Gollum looks at the hobbits and screams.]
Sam: "Hey! Come back now! Come back! There! What did I tell you? He's run off, the old villain. So much for his promises."
Gollum: "This way Hobbitses! Follow me!"
