Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

[The Fellowship exits Moria. Boromir tries to restrain Gimli as the Dwarf vents out his rage and sorrow.]

[Merry consoles Pippin, who lies crying.]

[Legolas wears a look of shock and disbelief; the immortal elf's eyes show puzzlement.]

[Sam sits on the ground, bows his head onto his hands, and begins to weep.]

[Aragorn wipes his sword clean, sheathes it, and turns to the others.]

Aragorn: "Legolas, get them up."

Boromir: "Give them a moment, for pity's sake!"

Aragorn: "By nightfall these hills will be swarming with Orcs! We must reach the woods of Lothlórien. Come, Boromir, Legolas, Gimli, get them up."

Aragorn: "On your feet Sam. Frodo? Frodo!"

[Frodo stands alone upon the hillside. Weeping silently, he turns towards Aragorn, a single tear running down his chin.]

[Chortling, icy blue water gurgles across the dale.]

[Aragorn runs up onto a rock.]

[Framed against a deep blue sky, he looks past the mountains to the greengold woods beyond.]

[The Fellowship jogs across a grassy field, halting under the leaves of a forest of tall trees.]

Gimli: "Stay close, young Hobbits! They say that a great sorceress lives in these woods, an Elf-witch, of terrible power. All who look upon her, fall under her spell…"

Galadriel: "Frodo…."

[Frodo, startled, looks around.]

Gimli: "…and are never seen again."

Galadriel: "…Your coming to us…" [Frodo halts in his tracks: a pair of eyes flash through his head] "…is as the footsteps of doom. You bring great evil here, Ring-bearer!"

Sam: "Mister Frodo?"

Gimli: "Well, here is one Dwarf she won't ensnare so easily. I have the eyes of a hawk and the ears of a fox!"

[An arrow, notched, appears before his face.]

Gimli: "Oh…"

[Other bows at the ready appear around the Fellowship.]

[Legolas has his own bow out.]

[The Fellowship looks around, alarmed.]

[A tall, golden-haired Elf appears.]

Haldir: "The dwarf breathes so loud, we could have shot him in the dark."

Gimli: "Grrr…"

[The Fellowship stands on a platform in the rustling foliage. Haldir greets them.]

Elf: "Mae govannen, Legolas Thranduilion." (Welcome Legolas, son of Thranduil.)

Legolas: "Govannas vîn gwennen le, Haldir o Lórien." (Our Fellowship stands in your debt, Haldir of Lórien.)

[Haldir glances at Aragorn.]

Haldir: "A, Aragorn in Dúnedain istannen le ammen." (Oh, Aragorn of the Dúnedain, you are known to us.)

Aragorn: "Haldir."

Gimli: "So much for the legendary courtesy of the Elves! Speak words we can also understand!"

Haldir: "We have not had dealings with the Dwarves since the Dark Days."

Gimli: "And you know what this Dwarf says to that? Ishkhaqwi ai durugnul!" (I spit upon your grave!)

Aragorn: [grabs Gimli] "That was not so courteous."

[Haldir glances at Frodo.]

Haldir: "You bring great evil with you." [looking at Aragorn] "You can go no further."

[He walks away. Sam and Pippin turn to look at Frodo. He looks slightly uncomfortable.]

[Aragorn argues with Haldir, angrily.]

Aragorn: "Boe ammen veriad lîn. Andelu i ven!" (We need your protection. The road is fell!)

[Haldir whispers back inaudibly.]

Aragorn: "Merin le telim." (I wish we may come with you.)

[Haldir answers quietly, again so that only Aragorn can hear his words.]

Aragorn: "Henio, aníron boe ammen i dulu lîn!" (Please, understand, we need your support!)

[Legolas turns to look at Frodo, who looks uncomfortably away, and his eyes fall on Sam.]

[Sam looks away, a hurt expression in his eyes.]

[Merry and Pippin do likewise.]

[Gimli glances at Frodo.]

[Aragorn continues to argue loudly with Haldir.]

Aragorn: "Andelu i ven." (The road is very dangerous.)

Boromir: "Gandalf's death was not in vain… nor would he have you give up hope."

Boromir: "You carry a heavy burden, Frodo… don't carry the weight of the dead."

[Frodo ponders this. Haldir appears, looking less than happy.]

Haldir: "You will follow me."

[A caravan of Elves leads the Fellowship along a ridge, through the golden woods. Boromir glances at Frodo behind him. The group comes to the end of the high ridge and looks out. A great glade of trees rises above them.]

Haldir: "Caras Galadhon… the heart of Elvendom on earth. Realm of the Lord Celeborn and of Galadriel, Lady of Light."
