[Snowy slopes of Caradhras, Frodo falls and rolls down]
[Boromir picks up the Ring]
Boromir: It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt… over so small a thing.
Boromir: Such a little thing [almost whispering].
Aragorn: Boromir! Give the Ring to Frodo.
Boromir: As you wish.
[Gives Ring to Frodo]
Boromir: I care not.
[Caverns under Isengard]
Saruman: So, Gandalf, you try to lead them over Caradhras. And if that fails, where then will you go?
Saruman: (v.o) If the mountain defeats you… will you risk a more dangerous road? Cuiva nwalca Carnirassë! Nai yarvaxëa rasselya taltuva ñotto-carinnar! Wake up, cruel Redhorn! May your blood-stained horn fall upon the enemy-heads!
Legolas: There is a fell voice in the air. [chanting]
Gandalf: It’s Saruman!
[Large rocks break off the mountain and fall down]
Aragorn: He’s trying to bring down the mountain! Gandalf, we must turn back!
Gandalf: No! Losto Caradhras, sedho, hodo, nuitho i ‘ruith! Sleep Caradhras, be still, lie still, hold your wrath!
[Thunder strikes, Fellowship is buried under the avalanche untill all have dug themselves out]
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: We cannot pass over a mountain. Let us go under it. Let us go through the Mines of Moria.
Saruman: (v.o) Moria. You fear to go into those mines.
[Isengard, Saruman’s study]
Saruman: The Dwarves delved too greedily and too deep.
Saruman: (v.o) You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dûm:
[Drawing of Balrog]
Saruman: (v.o.) Shadow and flame.
Gandalf: Let the Ring-bearer decide.
Boromir: We cannot stay here! This will be the death of the Hobbits!
Frodo: We will go through the mines.
Gandalf: So be it.
