This is Legolas:
"But I count you blessed, Gimli son of Gloin: for your loss you suffer of your own free will, and you might have chosen otherwise. But you have not forsaken your companions, and the least reward that you shall have is that the memory of Lothlorien shall remain ever clear and unstained in your heart, and shall neither fade nor grow stale."

You forgot the comma after "word". I'm sorry. I can't give it to you.

Well... okay- but just this time.

But technically there shouldn't be a comma before 'and'.

"_____ in this _______ _______ gleams _____. Our _____'s _____ oft ____ us in his ______. The ______ _____ itself has _____ a _____ ___ us. And now, _____ to _____ ______ and _____ it down ____ from _____, the ____ have _____ _____ my _______ _____."

Let me see here- I think this is right...

"Even in this gloom hope gleams again. Our enemy's devices oft serve us in his despite. The accursed darkness itself has been a cloak to us. And now, lusting to destroy Gondor and throw it down stone from stone, the orcs have taken away my greatest fear."

Gollum speaking to Sam in Ithilien:
"He has brought rabbits, nice rabbits. But master has gone to sleep, and perhaps Sam wants to sleep. Doesn't want rabbits now? Sméagol tries to help, but he can't catch things all in a minute."
