“The enemy has very deceitfully taken advantage of the Midsummer cease-fire to launch an offensive all over the realm.
Sauron has hit every major military target in Middle Earth, and hit ’em hard. In Rohan, the Gap has been overrun by suicide squads. Minas Tirith is standing by to be overrun.
In strategic terms, Sauron’s cut the realm in half. In other words, it’s a huge shit sandwich, and we’re all gonna have to take a bite.”
“Sir… does this mean that Legolas isn’t coming?”
“Frodo… I want you to get straight up to Mount Doom. Gandalf will need all his people.”
“Sir? Permission to go with Frodo?”
“Sir, permission not to take Samwise with me?”
“You still here? Vanish, Frodo, most ricky-tick, and take Samwise with you. You’re responsible for him.”
