Thread: GOLDEN MOMENTS
  >>
I was wondering if we might play a game with 3 Rules.
Very briefly post Five (5) Golden Moments from the Movies.
(1) "I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip!"
But only enough info so we know which scene it is and can share the the joy once more.
No one is allowed to reuse the same Golden Moment. (Let's not keep going over the same things!)
If anyone thinks a given 'Golden Moment' is only SILVER or BRONZE, or not in the least metallic. Isolate the item, and briefly explain why its not. This being the only actual DISCUSSION point on the thread. This is so we can keep the thread a bit tidy. (And try not to digress!)
(1) blah blah (FOTR)
(2) blah blah blahdy blah (TTT)
(3) blah blah (TRK)
(4) blah blah (FOTR)
(5) blah blah (RTK)...
Don't explain why you think it's a Golden Moment! Wait and see if anyone disagrees first.
If anyone is interested in this idea: Please GO FIRST.
NB Obviously if everyone feels this is just doing the Quotable Quotes thread again, I'll understand.
Frodo: You're Late!
Gandalf: (Pauses) A wizard is never late, He arrives presicely when he means to.
Frodo (After long pause and some laughing) I'ts wondeful to see you again, Gandalf!
Gandalf: Meriadoc Brandybuck, and Peregrin Took, I might have known...
BTW Bilbo says just before: Dragon...? There hasn't been a Dragon for 50 years....
Thanks for your posts. Unfortunately you only gave Three GOLDEN MOMENTS.
Anyway, I'm thinking maybe this thread is a bit too similar to the QUOTES one. Maybe we should let this one fade into obscurity in that case.
NB Has anybody found out your dark secret yet? (I've not blabbed!)
I feel we need a juicy new topic, don't we? Can you (or anyone) think of one?
Aragorn: The King has a good memory. He was only a small child at the time.
Éowyn : Then you must be at least 60.
Éowyn : 70 ?
Éowyn : But you cannot be 80 !
Aragorn : 87.
Legolas: Final count; 42
Gimli: blah blah blah... I'm sitting pretty on 43
Legolas: (shoots it) 43!
Gimli: He was already dead
Legolas: He was twitching
Gimili: He was twitching, because I've got my axe embeded in his NERVOUS SYSTEM!!!!!!
Would they know what a nervous system was in middle earth???? HA!
(In regards to the dying White Tree)
Pippin: "Why are they still guarding it?"
Gandalf: "They guard it because they have hope."
Plus the fountain guards had my favorite costumes of the entire trilogy. Love the wing helmets!

Does Gimli really say that? 'NERVOUS SYSTEM'??? Mmm.... I thought this was Golden Moments - not Moldy Moments!
I totally agree. I was rather disappointed with the Gondorian helmets for the most part, but those were quite cool. I'm even willing to forgive the plate armour, it's just that badass.
In no particular order,
1 : Aragorns fight with 'Lurtz'. (my favourite sword fight!)
2 : Boromirs dying words.
3 : Arwen revealed after the crowning.
4 : Bilbo hiding from the SB's.
5 : Gandalfs arrival at the battle of Helm's deep.
I have been reading all the posts but there's been something wrong when i've tried to input
things and I stopped trying for a while. However, my clever daughter has fixed it, somehow
I must say I have been greatly entertained and illuminated by the discussions of recent weeks !
Your good, and wise, self! GB, Eldorion & Pettytyrant especially have enriched me (and perhaps
Thankyou sooo much also for the poetry !
What say you to my golden moments ?
If I'd to choose from the books I'd still have Aragorn and Arwen's first meeting, as a gold moment.
my mind (and it's eye) at least!
Not that Liv isn't lovely of course.
I'm sure I read they were considering puting her into battle at Helms deep! Goodness! she might turn
up in the Hobbit !!!!!!!
I don't like that part. I can live with warrior!Arwen (though sack-of-potatoes!Frodo irks me), but her sudden change from tough warrior maiden mode to weeping was rather confusing and seemingly (to me) contradictory.
Not, not ... [url=http://l.yimg.com/eb/ymv/us/img/hv/allposters/62/1800126462p.jpg:la8ib84o]THEM[/url:la8ib84o]?!
Also, welcome back, hail!! Good to see you around again.
Sincerely the lone lady
Sorry, Tin, I try my best to keep things on the straight and narrows. They seem to say the first thing that comes into their minds! Also, they don't seem to take anything seriously!
Anyhow, five GOLDEN MOMENTS (for me).
(1) "Stupid fat hobbit!"
(2) Roughly remembered: "Please don't turn me into something [i:i2jr1jd8]unnatural[/i:i2jr1jd8]!"
(3) "I might not be able carry the ring, but I can carry you!" (Again, roughly remembered).
(4) "If it is a dream, then it is a good dream." (Yes, rough yet again. ahhh...Liv.... )).
(5) "Would you like me to get you a box?" (Not canon, but funny nonetheless).
There you go, Tin. As always, I'm with you all the way. (Those [i:i2jr1jd8]others [/i:i2jr1jd8]are so childishly tiresome, don't you think? )
Odo You do know I meant I liked Aragorn and Arwens meeting in the book, not the film ?
It's Beren/Luthien - Thingol/Melian(ish) and I love all those !
Makes me think if I wander around in woods long enough i'll eventually come across
a beautiful maiden and claim her !!
Overall I wasn't too fussy about Liv, I'd have preffered Jennifer
Connely. She looks more naturally beautiful imho.
Thanks Eldorion, I'd forgotten about that movie. Thanks also for the welcome.
sam gamgee have you been eves dropping. No. i aint been dropping no eves sir.
That still only counts as one. (legolas killing the oliphant)
Friends, you bow to no one (aragorn to the hobbits)
Its a pity Bilbo didnt kill the vile creature. "pity" its pity that stayed Bilbo's hand.
Theres 5, but i can think of a few more
1. Definately the second breakfast part in FOTR!
2. The wizard battle between Gandalf and Saruman
3. "You shall not pass!"
4. Boromir's last moments fighting the orcs with arrows sticking out of him
5."I guess that concludes negotiations" said by Gimli after Aragorn cuts of the Mouth of Sauron's head ( in the extended edition)
All I see is the text "User avatar" with a link to your profile; no badgers, animated or otherwise. I suspect the animation has confused the board software, though I'm just guessing.
