Eeeek!! I’m late with the results! Alrighty here they are…<P>Best: I made a promise Mr. Frodo, a promise. Don’t you lose him Samwise Gamgee, and I don’t mean to, I don’t mean to.<P>Worst: What are you doing?! Those Wraiths are still out there!<P>Sorry I’m so late. Seeing as how I’ve got people begging me to do <B>Merry</B> I suppose we can do him for fear of what will happen to me if we don’t. Ya'll go ahead and vote I'll have to come back later. My mom wants me off the computer.

Thumbs up

All Merry's lines were good...even that nasty one where he said "That rules you out, Pip." But since he was picking on Pippin, I'll say that's his worst. (Fuzzy logic, I know).<P>As for his best, it's either:<P>1: "This, my friend, is a pint!"<P>Or 2:, this "punch line" from the scene in Farmer Maggot's field:<P><B>Merry:</B> "I don't know why he's so upset. It's only a couple of carrots." <BR><B>Pippin:</B> "And some cabbages. And then those three bags of potatoes we lifted last week, and, and, the mushrooms, the week before." <BR><B>Merry:</B> "Yes, Pippin, my point is, he's clearly over reacting. Run!"

All of Merry's lines were great! Ummm errrr,but i guess...<P>Worst: The blackrider was looking for something...or someone. (it was something like that)<P>Best: 1. This my friend is a pint!<BR> 2. Merry: That was good.<BR> Pippin: Let's get another one.<BR> (or is it the other way around? <BR> no matter, they are both so funny!!)<p>[ October 22, 2002: Message edited by: LadyElbereth ]

Pippin's best lines:<P> The scene in Farmer Maggot's fields...hehehehehe <P> "Oohh...I think I've broken something!"<P> "This, my friends, is a PINT!"<P> The fireworks scene:<BR> <BR> Merry: "No, big one, BIG ONE!"<BR> (a few minutes later)<BR> Merry: "It's supposed to be in the ground!"<BR> Pippin: "It is in the ground!" <BR> Merry: "Outside!"<BR> Pippin: "This was your idea!"<BR> Merry and Pippin: "AAAHH!!!!"<BR> (after the dragon firework is done)<BR> Pippin: "That was good."<BR> Merry: "Let's get another one."<P> I love all his and Pippin's lines!!!<P> But...worst line:<P> "That black rider was looking for something. Or someONE." I dunno, he just sounds kinda menacing when he says it.

Merry had lines? Hmm . . . For some reason, they haven't stuck in my head! (Too much stuff already in there ) <P>I have to agree, that the "Black rider" line was . . . not good. <P>Best line . . . I'm having difficulty remembering them! Uh . . . I like the firework scene!!! It's soooo cool! I also like it when he says "That leaves you out Pip." I think those are his best lines. (At least until I remember some better ones! )

Normally, for any other character, I'd let your mistakes pass, but not for Merry, because he has the SINGLE BEST LINE IN THE ENTIRE FILM!<P>And it goes something like this:<P>"Eggs, sausages, NICE CRISPY BACON!!!!!!!"<P>Debate over.<BR>Worst line, maybe the screams that he does in Moria and at Amon Hen.<P>"Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagh!"

I CAN'T BELIEVE I FORGOT THAT LINE!! Heh heh. I love anything that has to do with food! Can I change my vote? Merry's best is definatly "Nice crispy bacon." <P>"Put it out you fools, put it out!" That one was not so good.

Aheh heh heh. I know that's Frodo's line. (Really!) I was just reminded of it when I quoted Merry. And I don't like it. (The line.) Aaaaand, since we weren't DOING Frodo, I hardly felt uh . . . able to say it was his worst line. I just thought I'd give my opinion on that line at the time. Heh. <P>Sorry if anyone misunderstood me. (Happens' a LOT! )<P>A talent for trouble thats me!

Frodo's best line . . . hmm . . . Heh. Someone needs to see the movie again! <P>"It's a pity Bilbo didn't kill him when he had the chance." I know nobody else will vote for this, but he delivers it so well! (And of course, it's then followed by Gandalf's best line! )<P>Worst line: "Put it out you fools! Put it out! " As I already stated prematurly.

Yep. That really bugged me too. I mean, he IS supposed to be a student of elvish speech! And he can't even say Mordor!

Okay, I'll remember to use your full name from now on. I'm just so lazy...<P>And if I was Elijah Wood I would never have admitted to not reading the books. I would have lied through my teeth about it. "Oh me? I read them once a year...have since I was four <I>*whistles nervously*</I>"

Well, I seem to be the only one that appreciates Elijah's work. I think he did a splended job. <P>I'm going totally against Eomer in saying I think Frodo's lines to Boromir during the breaking of the fellowship were his best. He delivered them in just the right way and was made even better by the fact that Sean Bean was acting that part well too. Frodo's best line from that part was definatly:<P>"I know what you would say and it would seem like wisdom but for the warning in my heart."<P>That, my friends, is pure Tolkien.<P>Frodo's worst line was...NOTHING! HA!

It wasn't really a bad line but they forced me to pick one! I'm sorry, I'M SORRY!!!!!<P>And Elijah Wood did read the book as a child. He was ecstatic about getting the part, and not just because of the money!

Elijah read "The Hobbit" as a child, not LotR. Anyway, he said that he read LotR after the movie, so at least he's read it.<P>I liked his performance, I'm not saying I didn't... And wohoo! Yes, it was pure Tolkien..."my heart" and all. Anyway, what am I yammering about? Oh, I've decided not to go back and edit my post. He really didn't have a bad line.

Frodo's Best:<BR>1) I will take the ring to Mordor! Though... I do not know the way...<BR>2) NOOOOO!!!!! (when Gandalf falls in Moria)<BR>3) You are late!<P>Little late, but my fav Pippin lines were"steady on, Frodo!" in Bree, and "I'm hungry" in moria.<P>More late quotes:<BR>Gandalf just kicks sooo much tail! Here are my fav Gandalf lines:<BR>1) Fly you fools!<BR>2) YOU...SHALL NOT...PASS!!!<BR>3) Fool of a Took! Throw yourself in next time and RID us of your STUPIDITY!<P>We need to give props to the talking ring! My favorite thing said by the ring was: "Aragorn....ELSSAR..."<P>Elrond's WORST line was: "You have only one choice" - I was waiting for him to say "...Mr. ANDERSON..."<P>I think PJ's cameo and bass boomin' burp make up for all the corny bad lines :-)

Frodo's best line: "I'm not like you, Bilbo." Underscores the entire concept of reluctant but dutiful self-sacrifice (as opposed to Bilbo's "Well, let's have at it" attitude.)<P>Frodo's worst line: no worst lines-- I just hate it when PJ has him scared and slithering backwards into a corner instead of charging, Sting drawn, like Tokien describes Frodo in the books. But that's the scriptwriter's & director's fault, not Wood's.

I'm finally able to post my vote! I've been spending a lot of time on a school project this past week. My Frodo vote...<P>Best:<BR>1. I know what you would say and it would seem like wisdom but for the warning in my heart.<BR>2. There is no other way.<BR>3. I'm going to Mordor alone.<P>Worst: What's the Elvish word for friend?<P>I don't like that part in the movie!!! Why did PJ have to change it? It makes Gandalf look pretty dum and also Frodo should have known the Elvish word for friend!!! <BR>I think I'm going to give people a little bit more time to vote because right now there's a three-way tie for best and worst and the lines for the worst only have one vote each. So I will probably post the results later tomorrow.

Um . . . I liked that part. In the book, Gandalf isn't the . . wait . . . let me check this before I totally stick my foot in my mouth! Hmm . . . you're right! Gandalf is the one that figured it out! All by his own self! Although it took him awhile. And hey, Boromir threw the rocks in the water! Not Pip and Merry! And Gimli is the one who said, the whole, "Simple, really, if you're a freind you speak the password!" And I say I really need to read the books again!

I'd have to agree with Firondoiel RE:Frodo's worst line. <BR>Frodo would have known the Elvish word for friend (Mellon) - but it was Gandalf who figured the riddle out. I<BR> couldn't think of a worst line on my own (I know, how unoriginal), but I'm definately in agreement on this one. This line sucks orc-draght BIG TIME.

I'll let you in on a secret. I had no idea if Wood read the book as a child. I just knew he dressed up as a Hobbit and sent PJ a tape.<P>Jumping to conclusions eh? Doesn't always get you more than a smart reply. (sorry Diamond)

Frodo Results. There's still a three-way tie for best.<P>1. You're late.<BR>2.I will take it! I will take it! I will take the ring to Mordor... Though - though I do not know the way. <BR>3. I know what you would say, and it would seem like wisdom, but for the warning in my heart. <P>Worst: What's the Elvish word for friend?<P>Glad to see I'm not the only one who dislikes that part! Next character, how about <B>Boromir</B>? My opinion on him...<P>Best: I would have followed you, my brother. My captain. My king. <P>Worst: It's still sharp.

Hah! I know this!!!! (Really!) <P>Boromir's Best: "They have a cave troll." I love how he says that!!! Even if nobody else does!!) <BR>More best lines: "I would have followed you my brother, etc."<P>"Frodo, I'm sorry!!" That line just cut me to the heart. I had never really liked Boromir in the books, but the instant he said that line, I just about died! Until HE died, I clutched my friend's hand, and whispered, "He's going to die! (Friend's name) He's going to die!" over and over. Heh. I think I made the other people crazy!!<P>Worst line: "Gondor has no king. Gondor needs no king." He actually delivers it well, (Sean Bean did an excellent job, BTW ) but it's just like, . . . yerg. I don't think he said that in the books, did he? Okay, that's all for now, folks!

I agree with Mintyztwin about his worst line, the "Gondor needs no King." Hmmmm...it had "for those who haven't read the book" written all over it.<P>Best:<P>1. Our people, our people! I would have followed you to the end... my brother... my captain... my king!<P>2. It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing. Such a little thing.
