Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
[The women and children approach Helm's Deep.]
Villagers: "Helm's Deep!"
[The women and children enter Helm's Deep.]
[The children find their mother and run to her arms.]
Mother: "Freda! Freda!"
[Èowyn surveys the food.]
Èowyn: "Where is the rest?"
Man: "This is all we could save, my lady."
Èowyn: "Take it to the caves."
[The riders return to Helm's Deep.]
Guard: "Make way for the king! Make way for Théoden. Make way for the King!"
[Èowyn hurries to meet them.]
Èowyn: "So few. So few of you have returned."
Théoden: "Our people are safe. We have paid for it with many lives."
[Gimli walks to Èowyn.]
Gimli: "My lady…"
Èowyn: "Lord Aragorn, where is he?"
Gimli: "He fell…"
[Èowyn is shocked and looks at Théoden in disbelief.]
Théoden: "Draw all our forces behind the wall. Bar the gate, and set a watch on the surround."
Guard: "What of those who cannot fight my lord? The women and children?"
Théoden: "Get them into the caves. Saruman's arm would have grown long indeed if he thinks he can reach us here."
Gríma (voiceover): "Helm's Deep has but one weakness. It's outer wall is solid rock for except for a small culvert in space, which is little more than a drain."
[Saruman pours explosives into a metallic ball.]
Gríma: "How? How can fire undo stone? What kind of device can break down a wall?"
[Gríma moves a candle close to the ball, but it stopped by Saruman.]
Saruman: "If the wall is breached, Helm's Deep will fall."
Gríma: "Even if it is breached, it would take a number beyond reckoning — thousands — to storm the keep."
Saruman: "Tens of thousands."
Gríma: "But my lord there is no such force."
[They walk to the balcony of the tower Orthanc and Gríma looks in awe at the sheer number of Uruk-hai warriors. A horn sounds and the army cheers.]
Saruman: "A new power is rising. Its victory is at hand."
[The warriors cheer.]
Saruman: "This night, the land will be stained with the blood of Rohan! March to Helm's Deep! Leave none alive!"
Saruman: "To war!"
Saruman: "There will be no dawn for Men."
[Merry and Pippin and Treebeard are moving past Isengard.]
Pippin: "Look! There's smoke to the south!"
Treebeard: "There is always smoke rising up from Isengard these days."
Treebeard: "There was a time, when Saruman would walk in my woods, but now, he has a mind of metal and wheels."
[The hobbits climb higher to get a view of Isengard.]
Treebeard: "He no longer cares for growing things."
[The hobbits spot the Uruk army.]
Pippin: "What is it?"
Merry: "It's Saruman's army! The war has started."
