Scene 61 ~ Fangorn Comes to Helms Deep 

The Two Towers Scene 61

The Uruk-hai are fleeing from Helms Deep, Theoden, Gandalf, Aragorn, Legolas ride after them.  They run to where a forest of trees has suddenly appeared. Eomer suddenly rides out in front of the men

EOMER: Stay out of the forest! Keep away from the trees!
They stand and watch as the Uruk-hai flee into the trees.  The trees begin to move and screams are heard from the Uruk-hai as the trees apparantly kill them
  Back in Helms Deep, Aragorn walks up to Eowyn who is very pleased to see him, holds his face and hugs him

Scene 62 ~ The Final Tally 

The Two Towers Scene 62

In Helms Deep men are piling up the dead Uruk-hai.  Gimli sits on a Uruk-hai smoking his pipe.  Legolas walks up to him
LEGOLAS: (stroking his bow) Final count.....42.
GIMLI: Forty-two? That's not bad for a pointy-eared Elvish princeling. I myself am sitting pretty on 43.
Legolas swiftly draws an arrow and shoots it between Gimli's legs at the Uruk-hai he is sitting on
LEGOLAS: (smirks) Forty-three.
GIMLI: He was already dead.
LEGOLAS: He was twitching.
GIMLI: He was twitching......because he's got my axe (he grabs his axe which is embedded in the Uruks head and moves it so that the dead Uruk moves too) embedded in his nervous system!

Scene 63 ~ Flotsam and Jetsam 

The Two Towers Scene 63

Merry and Pippin are standing in the water looking up at Isengard.  Saruman is with Grima looking out on the devastation below
MERRY: He doesn't look too happy, does he?
PIPPIN: Not too happy at all, Merry.
MERRY: Still, I suppose the view would be quite nice from up there.
PIPPIN: Oh, yes. It's a quality establishment. I hear the staff are very good.
From behind Pippin, Merry holds up his hand measuring his height against Pippin's.  Pippin turns around quickly
PIPPIN: What are you doing?
MERRY: Nothing. The world's back to normal, that's all.
PIPPIN: No, it isn't. I'm starving.
MERRY: Good luck trying to find something decent around here. (he picks up an empty broken basket and throws it away) Probably only dead rats and mouldy bread.
Pippin notices a red apple float past him.  He grabs it, looks up at the sky confused and grins.  He looks to his side and notices several apples floating past. He starts to follow their trail.  Merry quickly follows him.  Pippin picks up a roast chicken, whilst Merry finds a flagon of wine.  Pippin throws the chicken in a basket of apples, and they reach the food store.  They laugh and stand in awe at the stores there.  
MERRY: Saruman's storeroom!
There attention drifts to two barrels of South Farthing pipeweed
PIPPIN: I don't believe it.
MERRY: It can't be.
They quickly open one of the barrels. 
PIPPIN: lt is!
MERRY: Longbottom Leaf. (he takes a deep sniff of the leaves) The finest pipe-weed in South Farthing.
PIPPIN: (shoving a barrel at Merry and very excited)  It's perfect. One barrel each. (he pauses) Wait. Do you think we should share it with Treebeard?
MERRY: (shocked) Share it? (thinks then shakes his head) No. No. (he picks up a leaf ) Dead plant and all that. Don't think he'd understand. (he walks up close to Merry who is looking confused)  Could be a distant relative.
PIPPIN: (tapping his nose) I get it. Don't be hasty. (he grins)
MERRY: (draws out his pipe and sucks on it) Exactly. (he imitates Treebeard) Bar-hrum. (they both laugh madly)
Treebeard walks up to find where the laughing is coming from.  He sniffs the air, and bends down to look into the larder

Scene 64 ~ Farewell to Faramir 

The Two Towers Scene 64

Faramir leads Frodo, Sam and Gollum through the maze and ruins of Osgiliath.  He stops at a tunnel
FARAMIR: This is the old sewer. Runs right under the river through to the edge of the city. You'll find cover in the woods there. 
SAM: Captain have shown your quality, sir.
Faramir takes a step back
SAM: The very highest.
FARAMIR: (grinning) The Shire must truly be a great realm, Master Gamgee......where gardeners are held in high honor.
Sam looks sheepish
FARAMIR: What road will you take once you reach the woods?
FRODO: Gollum says there's a path......near Minas Morgul that climbs up into the mountains.
FARAMIR: Cirith Ungol?
Gollum tries to creep away, but Faramir grabs him by the back of the neck and throws him against a wall.  He looks at him sternly and holds him by the throat
FARAMIR: ls that its name?
GOLLUM: No. (he shakes his head) No! (Faramir tightens his grip) Yes.
FARAMIR: (turns to Frodo, but doesnt loosen his grip on Gollum) Frodo......they say a dark terror dwells in the passes above Minas Morgul. You cannot go that way.
GOLLUM: lt is the only way. Master says we must go to Mordor, so we must try.
Faramir looks to Frodo
FRODO:  I must.
Faramir throws Gollum to the ground
FARAMIR: (nodding) Go, Frodo. Go with the goodwill of all Men.
FRODO: Thank you.
He turns and walks down the sewer, Sam follows.  Gollum goes to creep after them, taking a wide path around Faramir.  Faramir reaches down and grabs him by the throat again
FARAMIR: May death find you quickly if you bring them to harm.
He throws Gollum down the tunnel after them.  Gollum pauses to look back at him and goes into the sewer, holding up one arm in pain
SAM: Come on, keep up.
Gollum falls on the floor.  Sam turns back to him
SAM: Mr. Frodo didn't mean for them Rangers to hurt you. You know that, don't you? He was trying to save you, see?
GOLLUM: (scathingly) Save me?
SAM:  So there's no hard feelings. Forgive and forget.
GOLLUM: No, no, no hard feelings. Gollum, Gollum. (he crawls onwards past Sam) Yes, master. Nice Hobbits.
SAM: (following) Very decent of you. Very decent, indeed, Gollum.
