Sam’s Speech: The Tales That Really Mattered

Throughout the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Sam and Frodo’s relationship is a main focal point. Sam is one of the only character’s who does not succumb to the ring’s power and is a huge supporting friend of “Mr. frodo”. This epic scene was from the second film, The Two Towers where Samwise Gamgee delivers the moving speech that even effects Gollum, who is silently listening. The LOTR movies have always been a symbolic parable to the real world we live in, and Peter Jackson nails it bang on with this profound climax of the movie where Sam discusses all the bad events that have occurred and how there’s some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for. This theme was directly correlated to the same questions and concepts that our world faces….


Here’s the word for word lyrics from the movie scene…

 “Frodo : I can’t do this, Sam.

Sam : I know. It’s all wrong By rights we shouldn’t even be here.
But we are. It’s like in the great stories Mr. Frodo.
The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were,
and sometimes you didn’t want to know the end.
Because how could the end be happy. 

How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad happened.
But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow.
Even darkness must pass. A new day will come.
And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer.
Those were the stories that stayed with you.
That meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why.
But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now.
Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back only they didn’t.
Because they were holding on to something.

Frodo : What are we holding on to, Sam?

Sam : That there’s some good in this world, Mr. Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.”
