Scene 29 ~ Bilbo's Gifts

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 29

A sack cloth is drawn aside, revealing a small sword
BILBO: My old sword, Sting (Bilbo picks up the sword and hands it to Frodo.  They are in Bilbo's bedchamber in Rivendell) Here, take it, take it.
Frodo draws the sword from its sheath, looking at it in awe
FRODO: Its so light!
BILBO: Yes Yes (Frodo turns it round looking at the blade) Made by the elves you know.  The blade glows blue when orcs are close and its times like that my lad, when you have to be extra careful.
Here's a pretty thing. (he lifts a shiny metallic shirt from his bed and holds it up for Frodo to see) Mithril! (he holds it in front of Frodo and shakes it) as light as a feather and as hard as dragon scales.  Let me see you put it on, go on.
Frodo begins to unbutton his shirt revealing the Ring around his neck.  Bilbo spots it and takes a breath.  Frodo suddenly notices Bilbo staring at it
BILBO: (pointing at the Ring) My my old ring.  Well I should... very much like to hold it again, one last time.
Frodo begins to button his shirt back up again. Suddenly Bilbo, looking wild, makes a swift grab for it.  Frodo jumps back looking shocked.  Bilbo falls back with his hand to his head looking distraught.
BILBO: I'm sorry I brought this upon you my boy (tearfully) I'm sorry that you must carry this burden (he slumps down on his bed and starts to cry).  I'm sorry for everything
Frodo walks over to him and puts his hand on his shoulder.  Bilbo holds Frodo's hand.

Scene 30 ~ The Departure of the Fellowship

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 30

Elrond is speaking outside in Rivendell
ELROND: The Ringbearer is setting out on the quest of Mount Doom and you who travel with him, (the fellowship is standing in front of him) no oath nor bond is laid to go further than you will
(Aragorn smiles at Arwen who drops her head)
 Farewell. Hold to your purpose and may the blessings of elves (looking at Legolas), and men (looking at Boromir), and all free folk (looking at Gimli) go with you. (he raises his hand and gestures for them to leave)
GANDALF: The Fellowship awaits the Ringbearer.
Frodo looks nervously around and turns to walk through the arches.
FRODO: Mordor, Gandalf, is it left or right ?
GANDALF: (places a hand on his shoulder) Left.
Frodo leads out, Gandalf, Gimli, Boromir, Pippin, Merry, Legolas, Sam... Aragorn pauses and looks back at Arwen. They exchange a long glance.  Aragorn smiles, nods his head, and follows the others. Arwen swallows and bows her head.

The Fellowship leaves Rivendell.


Scene 31 ~ The Ring Goes South

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 31

The Fellowship walk over mountains, past ancient ruins, over hills
GANDALF VOICEOVER: We must hold this course west of the Misty Mountains for forty days. If our luck holds the Gap of Rohan will still be open to us. (Sam takes sausages from a frying pan on an open fire.) and there are road turns east to Mordor.
Sam walks over with the plate to Frodo who is sitting watching Merry and Pippin practice sword fighting with Boromir.  Aragorn looks on also smoking a pipe.
BOROMIR: Good, very good. (he continues to practice with Pippin)
ARAGORN: Move your feet
MERRY: You look good Pippin
PIPPIN: (looking over his shoulder at Merry) Thanks (Merry joins the practice, Sam and Frodo look on grinning)
GIMLI: (who is sitting behind them on the rocks, near to Gandalf, whilst Legolas stands keeping watch) If anyone was to ask for my opinion, which I note that they're not, I'd say that we were taking the long way round. Gandalf, we could pass through the Mines of Moria.  My cousin Balin would give us a royal welcome.
GANDALF: No Gimli, I would not take the road through Moria unless I had no other choice.
Legolas runs in front of them and stands and stares at a grey cloud in the distance.  Gandalf pauses to follow his eyes.
Meanwhile, Boromir's sword slips and he cuts Pippin's hand with his sword. Pippin drops his sword
BOROMIR: Sorry! (he steps forward to look at Pippin's hand)
Pippin kicks Boromir in the leg.
MERRY: Get him! (he throws himself at Boromir)
The two hobbits wrestle Boromir to the ground and jump on him.  Aragorn looks on amused. 
PIPPIN: For the Shire.  Hold him, hold him down Merry! (Boromir laughs)
ARAGORN: (getting up and taking hold of the hobbits) Gentlemen, that's enough! (Merry and Pippin grab Aragorn's legs, throwing him backwards onto the ground)
PIPPIN: You've got my arm... argh!... you've got my arm
Sam stands up and notices that the cloud looking like dark specks is moving towards them
SAM: What is that ?
GIMLI: Nothing, its just a whisp of cloud
BOROMIR: (pausing from the scuffle looks up) Its moving fast.... against the wind
LEGOLAS: Crebain! From Dudland!
ARAGORN: Hide! (he runs to grab his sword)
ARAGORN: (grabs his sword) Frodo! Take cover!
They all run gathering their things and dousing the fire, and dash under the rocks out of sight
A great flock of black crows flies over them, circles around and then flies off
The Fellowship emerge from their hiding places

GANDALF: Spies of Saruman.  The passage south is being watched (Frodo looks distressed)  We must take the Pass of Caradhras (they look up at the snowy peaked mountains)

Scene 32 ~ The Pass of Caradhras

Fellowship of the Ring Scene 32

The Fellowship are walking up the snowy slopes of the mountain.  Frodo stumbles, falls and rolls back down the slope
ARAGORN: Frodo! (he catches him and picks him up)
Frodo brushes the snow off himself, and notices that the Ring is no longer handing round his neck.  Further up the mountain the Ring is picked up on its chain.  Frodo looks concerned.  Boromir holds the Ring dangling in front of his face in awe.  Gandalf turns around.  Everyone looks concerned
ARAGORN: Boromir
BOROMIR: It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing (he is mesmerised by it) such a little thing (he raises his hand to touch the Ring dangling on the chain)
ARAGORN: (urgently) Boromir! (Boromir abruptly stops, halted from his isolation) Give the Ring to Frodo
BOROMIR: (looking shocked and walks to a worried Frodo and holds out the Ring.  Frodo snatches it from him) as you wish! I care not (he grins, hestitates as he sees Aragorn's face, laughs and ruffles Frodo's hair, before walking off)
Aragorn stares after him and releases his grip on his sword
In Isengard, the mines are deep.  The Crebain circle around inside them, until they find Saruman.
SARUMAN: So Gandalf, you try to lead them over Caradhras.  And if that fails, where then will you go ?
The Fellowship struggle around the side of the mountain, through deep snow, strong winds and heavy snowfall 
If the mountain defeats you will you risk a more dangerous road
As the Fellowship struggle on, the hobbits being carried by Aragorn and Boromir who are thigh deep in the snow, Legolas lightly walks across the snow past them to the head of the line. He listens as he hears echos on the wind
SARUMAN: Cuiva nwalca Carnirasse; nai yarvaxea rasselya! (Wake up cruel Redhorn! May your horn be bloodstained!)
LEGOLAS: There is a fell voice on the air
GANDALF: It's Saruman!
A mighty crack is heard overhead, and great chunks of rock fall down from the mountain top, narrowly missing them
ARAGORN: He's trying to bring down the mountain! Gandalf! We must turn back!
GANDALF: No! (he steps out to the edge of the path) Losto Caradhras, sedho, hodo, nuitho i 'ruith! (Sleep, Caradhras, be still, lie still, hold your wrath!)
SARUMAN: (standing on top of Isengard drowns him out) Cuiva nwalca Carnirasse; Nai yarvaxea rasselya; taltuva notto-carinnar! (Wake up cruel Redhorn! May your bloodstained horn fall upon enemy heads!)
A great streak of lightning hits the top of the mountain above the Fellowship and an avalanche of snow rains down on top of them, burying them underneath it.  Moments later Legolas emerges from the snow. He looks around to see the others emerge
BOROMIR: We must get off the mountain! Make for the Gap of Rohan and take the west road to my city!
ARAGORN: The Gap of Rohan takes us too close to Isengard!
GIMLI: If we cannot pass over the mountain, let us go under it! Let us go through the Mines of Moria
Gandalf pauses thinking
SARUMAN VOICEOVER: Moria... you fear to go into those mines.
SARUMAN: (in Isengard flicking through a book, stops at a page showing Moria Gate) the dwarves delved too greadily and too deep
SARUMAN VOICEOVER: (as Gandalf hears him knowingly) You know what they woke in the dark of Khazad-dm
SARUMAN: (turning over another page to show  a firey balrog) Shadow, flame
GANDALF: Let the Ringbearer decide
Frodo looks confused and turns to Sam
BOROMIR: We cannot stay here! (Merry and Pippin look frozen and scared next to him) This will be the death of the hobbits!
GANDALF: Frodo ?
FRODO: (hesitating) We will go through the Mines
GANDALF: So be it
