* Bill Ferny's a real jerk. First he rats on the hobbits to the Black Riders, then he capitalizes on the subsequent loss of transportation by selling them a near-useless pony for three times its worth. And then, when Frodo & Co. are leaving town, he's got the gall to insult them all in public. Bad move, buddy. When he gets to Sam, Sam insults him right back, and then beans him with an apple.

(When Frodo asks whether this is a trick and maybe the pony will run back to Ferny with all their stuff, Argagorn responds: "I wonder. But I cannot imagine any animal running home to him, once it got away.) And then, when Frodo & Co. are leaving town, he's got the gall to insult them all in public. Bad move, buddy.

* While they are stuck in the mountains, Aragorn discusses building a shelter with what they have, to which Sam has this zinger:
--> ''Sam'': If this is a shelter, then one wall and no roof make a house.
* "The Stone Troll" and "The Man in the Moon Stayed up too Late"

* While they are stuck in the mountains, Aragorn discusses building a the fact that they'll likely find no better shelter with what from the weather than the cliff-wall they have, happen to be under, to which Sam has this zinger:
--> ''Sam'': If this is a shelter, then one wall and no roof make a house.
* "The Stone Troll" and Frodo's "The Man in the Moon Stayed up too Late"Late" isn't the only song worth listing here; Sam's "Stone Troll" song also counts.

* Frodo asks Gildor (an elf) about Gandalf's lateness:
-->'''Gildor''': "I do not like this news. That Gandalf should be late, it does not bode well. But it is said: Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger. The choice is yours: to go or to wait."
-->'''Frodo''': "It is also said: Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes."
-->'''Gildor''': ([[Main/ActuallyPrettyFunny laughing]]) "Is it indeed?"

* Another Aragorn moment from their first meeting, Frodo says he's inclined to trust Aragorn, because, as he puts it "I think a servant of the Enemy would look fairer, but feel fouler." Aragorn dryly responds "And I look foul but feel fair, I suppose?"

** And then with the Herb-master who regales him with the entire litany of useless knowledge about ''athelas'' rather than actually coughing any of it up, since it's useless except as an infusion that old folks sometimes use as a headache remedy.

* Rather HilariousInHindsight (most read ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'' after the trilogy), but Bilbo is composing a song about Earandil to perform in Rivendell and asks for Aragorn's help. Aragorn obliges, but comments that it's rather cheeky to write verses about Earandil in the House of Elrond. Earandil happens to be Elrond's father, a fact stated later, but knowing the whole story about him and his family just makes Aragorn's warning funnier.
