Okay, I posted the results for Saruman a few days ago but the forum went haywire and deleted it. So here they are again.<BR> <BR>Tie for best. 1:"The Nine have left Minas Morgul. They crossed the River Isen on midsummer's eve disguised as riders in black...They will find the Ring, and kill the one who carries it."<P>2:"Smoke rises from the Mountain of Doom, the hour grows late and Gandalf the Gray rides to Isengard seeking my counsel."<P>Worst:"I gave you the chance of aiding me willingly, but you have elected the way of PAIN!"<P>Let's do <B>Gimli</B> for the next character. My vote for him...<P>Best: 1. "I asked for one hair of her golden head, and she gave me three."<P>2. "Let them come! There is one dwarf yet in Moria who still draws breath!"<P>Worst:"Then it has all been in vain, the Fellowship has failed."

Gimli's Best:<BR>1) I asked her for one hair from her golden head...she gave me three.<P>2) Let them come, there is one Dwarf yet in Moria who still draws breath.<P>3) Soon, Master Elf, you shall enjoy the fabled hospitality of the Dwarfs...ale and meat off the bone...<P>4) This isn't an official vote, of course, but I really love <I>all</I> his lines. Except for:<P>Gimli's Worst:<BR>1) Whatever that was he said in Dwarvish to Haldir.<P>2) I will not see the Ring in the hands of an Elf.

Someone or something (maybe a hungry Wight) ate half my last post wit the Saruman-lines, but I hope it goes well this time:<P>Gimli! I like Gimli! Heeere we go:<P>BEST:<BR>1. <B>Not the beard!!</B><BR>2. <B>No one tosses a dwarf!</B><BR>3. <B>I asked for one hair of her golden head. She gave me three.</B><BR>I think the two first ones are a bit OOC, but still, they're funny.<P>WORST:<BR>1. <B>Never trust an Elf!</B><BR>2. <B>I will be DEAD before I see the Ring in the hands of an Elf!</B><BR>That's a bit TOO much OOC...

I don't think the <B>I will not see the Ring in the hands of an Elf."</B> line is that bad.<P>How I see it, he's a dwarf, and we all know that dwarves and elves didn't get along. And I can see with how the scene of the council of Elrond became intense, that yes, he just might say something like that. And it didn't seem out of character, in my opinion.<P>I don't have any best or worst lines from the movie for gimli. *shrugs*

Maybe we shouldn't discuss this here, but I feel that even though Elves and Dwarwes truly disliked each other, a Dwarf would never burst out with something kinda emotional like that in such a situation, or in any situation for that matter. It just doesn't feel right.

I forgot about that "Hands of an Elf!" outburst.<BR>Gimli surely spoke Elvish to Haldir. After all, Aragorn understood him, and if Aragorn knows Dwarvish I'll eat my hat.

Gimli had some GREAT lines - and he's gonna have the best line in TTT (if anyone else heard, ya know what I mean..mwwaaauuuaahahaha!)<P>Here's my vote for his best lines:<BR>1. Let them come! There is one dwarf yet in Moria who still draws breath!<BR>2. And MY AXE!<BR>3. I asked for one hair of her golden head. She gave me three.<P>Worst:<BR>1) 'Anyone was to ask for my opinion, which I note they're not, I'd say we were taking the long way 'round. - in the book, Gimli knew better...he didn't want to go into the mines.<BR>2) 'Nothing, it's just a wisp of cloud' - that's just stout ignorance.<BR>3) 'Then it was all in vain. The Fellowship has failed.' - Talk about giving up!
