Scene 29 ~ Gollum and Smeagol

The Two Towers Scene 29

Sam and Frodo are sleeping.  Its night and Frodo sleeps holding the Ring in his hand.  Gollum looks at them, he is sitting next to some pillars
 

GOLLUM: We wants it. We needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little Hobbitses. Wicked. Tricksy. False.
 
SMEAGOL: No. Not master.
 
GOLLUM: Yes, precious. False. They will cheat you, hurt you, lie!
 
SMEAGOL: Master's my friend.
 
GOLLUM: You don't have any friends. Nobody likes you.
 
SMEAGOL: (with his hands over his ears) Not listening. I'm not listening.
 
GOLLUM: You're a liar and a thief.
 
SMEAGOL: (shaking his head) No.
 
GOLLUM: Murderer.
 
SMEAGOL: Go away.
 
GOLLUM: (mockingly) Go away? (laughs)
 
SMEAGOL: I hate you. I hate you.
 
GOLLUM: Where would you be without me?
Gollum. Gollum.
I saved us. It was me. We survived because of me.
 
SMEAGOL: Not anymore.
 
GOLLUM: (shocked) What did you say?
 
SMEAGOL: Master looks after us now. We don't need you.
 
GOLLUM: What?
 
SMEAGOL: Leave now......and never come back.
 
GOLLUM: No.
 
SMEAGOL: Leave now and never come back.
 
Gollum growls and bears his teeth
 
SMEAGOL: Leave now and never come back!
 
There is silence and no response from Gollum
 
SMEAGOL: We told him to go away. And away he goes, precious. (he jumps and leaps about) Gone! Gone! Gone! Smeagol is free!
 
   

Scene 30 ~ Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit

The Two Towers Scene 30

   
The next day, Frodo is lying down resting, and Sam looks over the edge of a cliff.  Gollum appears and drops two dead rabbits in Frodo's lap.  Frodo looks surprised
 
GOLLUM: Look. Look. See what Smeagol finds?
 
Frodo looks at Gollum and smiles and then looks towards Sam who sighs.  Gollum dances pleased.  He picks up one of the rabbits, and snaps its spine
 
GOLLUM: They are young. They are tender. They are nice. Yes, they are. Eat them. Eat them!
(he rips into the rabbit with his teeth)
 
SAM: (looking disgusted, walks over to Gollum and pulls the rabbit away from him) You'll make him sick, you will......behaving like that. (he picks up both rabbits) There's only one way to eat a brace of coneys.
 
A pot is cooking over a fire with rabbit stew in it.  Sam is stirring the stew, and Frodo sits next to him.  Gollum lollops over to them
 
GOLLUM: What's it doing? Stupid, fat Hobbit. It ruins it.
 
SAM: What's to ruin? There's hardly any meat on them.
 
Frodo goes to get some plates out of their bag and hears a faint bird call
 
SAM: What we need is a few good taters.
 
GOLLUM: What's taters, precious? What's taters? Eh?
 
SAM: (speaking slowly) Po-ta-toes.
 
Frodo wanders out of site in the direction of the sounds
 
SAM: Boil them, mash them, stick them in a stew. Lovely, big, golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish.
 
Gollum sticks his tongue out in disgust and spits
 
SAM: Even you couldn't say no to that. (he sips the stew)
 
GOLLUM: Oh, yes, we could. Spoil a nice fish. (he crawls up to Sam) Give it to us raw... (he shakes his head vigorously from side to side) ...and wriggling. You keep nasty chips.
 
SAM: You're hopeless.
 
Frodo is wandering round the bushes, looking for the source of the sound.  Suddenly Sam notices Frodo has gone.
 
SAM: (looking around) Mr. Frodo?
 
Frodo crawls to the edge of the cliff, to see hoards of dark clothed men walking along the valley.  He is joined by Sam and Gollum
 
SAM: Who are they?
 
GOLLUM: Wicked Men. Servants of Sauron. They are called to Mordor. The Dark One is gathering all armies
to him. It won't be long now. He will soon be ready.
 
SAM: Ready to do what?
 
GOLLUM: To make his war. The last war that will cover all the world in Shadow.
 
FRODO: We've got to get moving. Come on, Sam. (he beings to move away)
 
SAM: (grabbing Frodo's arm) Mr. Frodo. Look. It's an oliphaunt.
 
Oliphaunts are seen walking alongside the Wicked men, carrying great canopies full of more men
 
SAM: No one at home will believe this.
 
Gollum creeps away
 
FRODO: (looking round) Smeagol?
 
As they look on, suddenly firing arrows appear sailing through the air.  The Wicked men fall.  Hooded and cloaked figures are seen in the bushes around them firing arrows. Faramir appears looking from behind a bush.  An Oliphaunt is careering towards Frodo and Sam.  Faramir draws an arrow and shoots one of the men on it, who falls to the ground in front of Sam and Frodo. Frodo scrambles to his feet
 
FRODO: We've lingered here too long. Come on, Sam.
 
As he turns to run, he runs straight into the arms of one of the hooded men.  Sam shouts and draws his sword. He is thrown to the ground by another hooded man, just as Frodo is also thrown to the ground and swords placed at their throats
 
SAM: Wait! We're innocent travelers!
 
Faramir appears amongst the men
 
FARAMIR: There are no travelers in this land. Only servants of the Dark Tower.
 
FRODO: We are bound to an errand of secrecy. Those that claim to oppose the enemy would do well not to hinder us.
 
FARAMIR: The enemy? (he walks over to the dead man he shot and turns him over with his foot) His sense of duty was no less than yours, I deem. (he looks into his face) You wonder what his name is......where he came from. And if he was really evil at heart. What lies or threats led him
on this long march from home. If he would not rather have stayed there......in peace. War will make corpses of us all. Bind their hands. (he walks off and Frodo and Sam are dragged off after him)
 
   

Scene 31 ~ Dwarf Women

The Two Towers Scene 31

   
The Rohan people are still walking around the lakes.  Gimli rides on a horse led by Eowyn
 
GIMLI: It's true, you don't see many Dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance......that they're often mistaken for Dwarf men.
 
Eowyn smiles and looks back at Aragorn, riding his horse
 
ARAGORN: It's the beards. (he gestures to an imaginary beard on his chin.  Eowyn grins and looks back to Gimli)
 
GIMLI: This, in turn, has given rise to the belief......that there are no Dwarf women......and that Dwarves just spring out of holes in the ground...
 
Eowyn laughs and Gimli laughs too
 
GIMLI: ...which is, of course, ridiculous. (he throws his hands up and the horse suddenly gallops off, throwing Gimli to the ground)
 
Eowyn smiles, and then quickly runs to help him
 
GIMLI: It's all right. Nobody panic. That was deliberate. It was deliberate.
 
Aragorn and Theoden riding side by side grin widely.  Eowyn looks back at Aragorn laughing.  He laughs back, and his laugh turns into a smile. 
 
THEODEN: I haven't seen my niece smile for a long time. She was a girl when they brought her father back dead. Cut down by Orcs. She watched her mother succumb to grief.
 
She looks dreamily at him smiling, the wind in her hair
 
THEODEN: Then she was left alone, to tend her king in growing fear. Doomed to wait upon an old man who should have loved her as a father.
 

Scene 32 ~ One of the Dúnedain

The Two Towers Scene 32

   
The Rohan people have stopped for a break.. Eowyn walks up to Gimli and Aragorn with a cooking pot and bowl in her hand
 
EOWYN: Gimli.?
 
GIMLI: No, I couldn't I really couldn't.
 
She walks past him to Aragorn who is cleaning his sword
 
EOWYN: I made some stew. It isn't much, but it's hot. (she fills a bowl and passes it to Aragorn)
 
ARAGORN: Thank you. (he tastes it and tries to hide a grimace.  Eowyn looks concerned) It's good.
 
EOWYN: Really? (she turns and starts to walk away.)
 
Aragorn quickly goes to pour the stew on the ground, but Eowyn turns back
 
EOWYN: My uncle told me a strange thing. He said that you rode to war with Thengel, my grandfather. But he must be mistaken.
 
ARAGORN: King Theoden has a good memory. He was only a small child at the time.
 
EOWYN: Then you must be at least 60.
 
Aragorn looks a bit embarrassed
 
EOWYN: Seventy? But you cannot be 80!
 
ARAGORN: (looking at the ground) Eighty-seven.
 
EOWYN: (realising) You are one of the Dunedain. A descendant of Numenor, blessed with long life. It was said that your race had passed into legend.
 
ARAGORN: There are few of us left. The Northern Kingdom was destroyed long ago.
 
EOWYN: I'm sorry. Please, eat. (he reluctantly continues his meal whilst she watches him)
