Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
[Inside the city, Pippin finds Gandalf.]
Pippin: "Gandalf! Gandalf! Denethor has lost his mind!"
Pippin: "He's burning Faramir alive!"
[Gandalf pulls Pippin onto Shadowfax. They race up the city.]
[Shadowfax rounds a corner to face the Witch-King, mounted on his fell beast. Gandalf holds up his staff in defense.]
Gandalf: "Go back to the abyss! Fall into the nothingness that awaits you and your master."
Witch-King: "Do you not know death when you see it, old man?"
[The Witch-King screams, and Pippin cries in terror.]
Witch-King: "This is my hour."
[The Witch-King draws his sword, which lights on fire.]
[Gandalf's staff shatters and he falls from his horse.]
[The Witch-King approaches Gandalf. Pippin draws his sword.]
[The fell beast roars, freezing Pippin in fear.]
[Shadowfax rears at the beast, holding it at bay for a moment.]
[The Witch-King taunts a defeated Gandalf.]
Witch-King: "You have failed. The world of Men will fall."
[A chorus of horns is heard in the distance. The Witch-King turns and flies towards the new threat.]
[Gothmog and the orcs turn towards the sound of the horns.]
[The Riders of Rohan appear across the fields. The army of Rohan stops to face the rear of the orc army.]
[Éowyn speaks to her fellow rider, Merry.]
Éowyn: "Courage, Merry. Courage for our friends."
Gothmog (to the Orcs): "Form ranks, you maggots! Form ranks! Pikes in front, archers behind."
[Théoden rides along the front lines of the Rohirrim.]
Théoden: "Éomer! Take your eored down the left side."
Éomer: "Yes, my lord."
Théoden: "Gamling, follow the King's banner down the center. Grimbold, take your company right, after you pass the wall. Forth, and fear no darkness!"
Théoden: "Arise! Arise! Riders of Théoden! Spears shall be shaken, shields shall be splintered! A sword-day! A red day, ere the sun rises!"
[Orcs prepare for the ride of the Rohirrim.]
Éowyn (to Merry): "Whatever happens, stay with me. I will look after you."
[Théoden rides up and down the lines, rattling his sword along the row of spears.]
Théoden: "Ride now, ride now, ride! Ride for ruin and the world's ending!"
Théoden: "Forð Eorlingas!"
[Rohirrim horns sound the charge.]
[The Rohirrim begin to move out.]
[Théoden leads the riders in a dash towards the orc battalions.]
[Orc archers shoot down some of the riders.]
Gorbag: "Fire at will."
[More orc archers fire, but the Rohirrim soon crash through the orc lines.]
[Éomer's group plunges into the orc reserves.]
