The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) – Memorable quotes


Ian McKellen as Gandalf the White in Peter Jac...

Gandalf: I think you should leave the ring behind, Bilbo. Is that so hard?

Bilbo: Well, no. [frowning]

Bilbo: …and yes. Now it comes to it, I don’t feel like parting with it. It’s mine, I found it. It came to me!

Gandalf: There’s no need to get angry.

Bilbo: Well, if I’m angry, it’s your fault.

[to himself] Bilbo: …it’s mine… my own… my precious…

Gandalf: Precious? It’s been called that before, but not by you.

Bilbo: Oh, what business is it of yours what I do with my own things?

Gandalf: I think you’ve had that ring quite long enough.

Bilbo: You want it for yourself!

Gandalf: BILBO BAGGINS! Do not take me for some conjuror of cheap tricks! I am not trying to rob you. I’m trying to help you.

The Lord of the Rings: Memorable quotes


Frodo: It’s a pity Bilbo didn’t kill him when he had the chance.

Gandalf: Pity? It was pity that stayed Bilbo’s hand. Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends. My heart tells me that Gollum has some part to play yet, for good or ill before this is over. The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many.
