Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
[People scurry around Helm's Deep.]
Rohan man: "Come on people! Quickly, now!"
Aragorn: "We'll place the reserves along the wall. They can support the archers from above the gate."
Legolas: "Aragorn, you must rest. You're no use to us half-alive."
[Èowyn calls out to Aragorn.]
Èowyn: "Aragorn! I'm to be sent with the women into the caves."
Aragorn: "That is an honorable charge."
Èowyn: "To mind the children, to find food and bedding when the men return. What renown is there in that?"
Aragorn: "My lady, a time may come for valor without renown. Who then will your people look to in the last defense?"
Èowyn: "Let me stand at your side."
Aragorn: "It is not in my power to command it."
[Aragorn begins to walk away.]
Èowyn: "You do not command the others to stay! They fight beside you because they would not be parted from you. Because they love you."
Èowyn: "I'm sorry."
[Èowyn walks away.]
[Inside Helm's Deep, people wander in to the caves.]
[Husbands and sons are taken away from their wives and mothers.]
[In the armory, weapons are handed out to the villagers.]
Aragorn: "Farmers, farriers, stable boys."
Aragorn: "These are no soldiers."
Gimli: "Most have seen too many winters!"
Legolas: "Or too few. Look at them. They're frightened. I can see it in their eyes."
[He looks at Aragorn as the room turns silent.]
Legolas: "Boe a hyn neled herain… dan caer menig!" (And they should be. Three hundred… against ten thousand!)
Aragorn: "Si beriathar hyn ammaeg na ned Edoras." (They have a better chance defending themselves here than in Edoras.)
Legolas: "Aragorn, men i ndagor. Hýn ú ortheri. Natha daged aen!" (They cannot win this fight. They are all going to die!)
Aragorn: "Then I shall die as one them!"
[Aragorn and Legolas stare at each other, and Aragorn walks away from the elf.]
[Legolas tries to run after him, but is stopped by Gimli.]
Gimli: "Let him go, lad. Let him be."
[Théoden is given his armor by Gamling.]
Gamling: "Every villager able to wield a sword has been sent to the armory. My lord?"
Théoden: "Who am I, Gamling?"
Gamling: "You are our king, sire."
Théoden: "And do you trust your king?"
Gamling: "Your men, my lord, will follow you to whatever end."
[Gamling helps the King in to his armor.]
Théoden: "To whatever end."
[Uruks march towards Helm's Deep.]
Théoden: "Where is the horse and the rider. Where is the horn that was blowing."
[The villagers receive their weapons.]
[A helmet is placed on the head of a scared boy, while another child looks at the axe in his hand.]
Théoden: "They have passed like rain on the mountains. Like wind in the meadow. The days have gone down in the west. Behind the hills, into shadow."
Théoden: "How did it come to this."
[At the Entmoot, Pippin awakes.]
Merry: "It's been going for hours."
Pippin: "They must have decided something by now."
Treebeard: "Decided? No, we've only just finished saying good morning."
Merry: "But it's nighttime already! You can't take forever."
Treebeard: "Don't be hasty."
Merry: "We're running out of time!"
[Aragorn is sitting alone on stairs.]
[He sees a confused looking child with a sword.]
Aragorn: "Give me your sword."
Aragorn: "What is your name?"
Háleth: "Háleth, son of Háma, my lord."
Háleth: "The men are saying that we will not live out the night. They say that it is hopeless."
[Aragorn stands up and swings the sword.]
Aragorn: "This is a good sword, Háleth, son of Háma."
[He lays his hand on the boys shoulder.]
Aragorn: "There is always hope."
[Inside, Aragorn puts on his armor.]
[Legolas hands him his sword.]
Legolas: "We have trusted you this far and you have not led us astray. Forgive me. I was wrong to despair."
[Aragorn smiles at the elf.]
Aragorn: Ú-moe edamed, Legolas." (There is nothing to forgive, Legolas.)
[They look at each other and smile. Gimli enters the room, wearing armor that is far too long for him.]
Gimli: "If we had time, I'd get this adjusted."
[The armor falls to the ground.]
Gimli: "It's a little tight across the chest."
[Legolas and Aragorn smile at the dwarf.]
[The sound of a horn is heard from outside.]
Legolas: "That is no orc horn!"
[They rush out. Men peer over the wall.]
Man: "Send for the king. Open the gate!"
[The gates are opened, and an army of elves march in. Men stare in awe.]
[Théoden walks down the stairs and meets the Elf Captain.]
Théoden: "How is this possible?"
Haldir: "I bring word from Elrond of Rivendell. An alliance once existed between elves and men. Long ago we fought and died together."
[Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli rush down the stairs.]
Haldir: "We come to honor that allegiance."
Aragorn: "Mae govannen, Haldir!" (Welcome, Haldir!)
[Aragorn stands before the elf and then hugs him. Haldir, a little surprised, returns the gesture.]
Aragorn: "You are most welcome."
[Legolas comes down the stairs and embraces Haldir. The army of elves turn and lower their bows and shields in unison.]
Haldir: "We are proud to fight alongside men, once more."
