BOROMIR: One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. And the great Eye is ever-watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire and ash and dust. The very air that you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly.
LEGOLAS: Have you heard nothing Lord Elrond has said? The Ring must be destroyed!
GIMLI: And I suppose you think you're the one to do it?!
BOROMIR: And if we fail, what then? What happens when Sauron takes back what is his?
GIMLI: I will be dead before I see the Ring in the hands of an Elf! Never trust an Elf!
GANDALF:Do you not understand? While you bicker amongst yourselves, Sauron's power grows! None can escape it! You'll all be destroyed!
SAM: Here! Mr. Frodo's not going anywhere without me.
ELROND: No, indeed, it is hardly possible to separate you from him, even when he is summoned to a secret Council, and you are not.
MERRY: Oi! We're coming too! You'll have to send us home tied up in a sack to stop us.
PIPPIN: Anyway, you need people of intelligence on this sort of mission. Quest. Thing.
MERRY: Well that rules you out, Pip.
ELROND: Nine companions. So be it! You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring.
PIPPIN: Great. Where are we going?
ELROND: Anirne hene beriad i chên în. (She wanted to protect her child.) Ned Imladris nauthant e le beriathar aen. (She thought in Rivendell you would be safe.) But in her heart your Mother knew you'd be hunted all your life. That you'd never escape your fate. The skill of the Elves can reforge the sword of kings but only you have the power to wield it.
ARAGORN: I do not want that power. I have never wanted it.
ELROND: You are the last of the blood line. There is no one else.
