*** This is made even funnier because its intercut with commentaries by Creator/JohnRhysDavies and Creator/Christophe Lee, recorded separately and sounding like distinguished elder statesmen, talking about how wonderful it was to nurture these young actors and how deep and affecting Tolkien's mythology is, respectively.

* Gimli objects to the Lórien elves' insistence on having him blindfolded, and Legolas says "A plague on dwarves and their stiff necks!" When Aragorn suggests they ''all'' go blindfold, so Gimli won't feel so singled out, Legolas ''[[HypocriticalHumor complains]]'', at which point Aragorn demonstrates that CantArgueWithElves was thankfully not a trope yet:

* A minor one from the Extended Edition: during their infiltration of Mordor, Sam and Frodo wind up accidentally dragged along with a group of Orcs. They're trying to figure out a way to sneak away when the group gets halted...for ''inspection''. That the Orcs who are riding the edge of AlwaysChaoticEvil have enough organization and discipline to have inspections is funny in such a tense scene.

** Before the others show up, Pippin comments about how sitting on the wrecked wall of Isengard makes him feel like he's back at the Green Dragon, with "A mug of ale in my hand, putting my feet up on a settle after a hard day's work."
-->'''Merry''': Only, you've never ''done'' a hard day's work. ''[Pippin shrugs in agreement, [[ActuallyPrettyFunny and both laugh]]]''

** Pippin asks if they should share it with Treebeard, and Merry says no.
-->'''Merry''': Dead plant and all that. Don't think he'd understand. Could be a distant relative.

* As our heroes are awaiting the attack on Helm's Deep, the camera pans along the top of the wall, showing a row of soldiers... and a gap right next to Legolas with just the top of Gimli's helmet visible.
--> '''Gimli:''' What's happening out there?
--> '''Legolas:''' Shall I describe it to you, or would you like me to find you a box?
** There's then a pause, and Gimli actually ''[[ActuallyPrettyFunny laughs]]'' instead of getting angry, making this also something of a CMOH.



* "If it's luck you live by, let's hope it lasts the night." "Your friends are with you, Aragorn." "Let's hope ''they'' last the night."

*** It gets better a moment later when Aragorn roams by to look out over the oncoming army...and stands behind Gimli so he can see through the gap.

* In the extended version, Éowyn proudly offering Aragorn a bowl of [[LethalChef horrible-looking]] stew that she has concocted, and then watching him eat, so he has to choke the whole thing down.

* In the extended version, Éowyn proudly offering Aragorn a bowl of [[LethalChef horrible-looking]] stew that she has concocted, and then watching him eat, so he has to choke the whole thing down. She turns away, he goes to immediately dump it out, and then she turns around and he accidentally sloshes half of the bowl of ''very hot stew'' all over his hands.
** This is almost immediately followed by Éowyn mentioning how her uncle talked about some of Aragorn's past exploits that shows [[YoungerThanTheyLook how old Aragorn really is]], and Aragorn sheepishly admits that he's 87.
** Before she offers some to Aragorn, she passes by Gimli, [[GenreSavvy who politely declines.]]

** Followed by the badass moment of Theoden drawing his sword...and then giving [[TheMole Grima]] a rather hearty DeathGlare. Cut to Grima being bodily chucked down the long stairs at the top of Edoras.

* During the final battle, Aragorn is grappling with an uruk-hai as Legolas calmly kills every other one on the screen (half a dozen of them) before finally turning around and shooting the one that's got Aragorn by the neck.

-->-Merry, of all people, was on the right track.
-->-Fool of a Took! This is not a hobbit walking-party. Throw yourself in next time, and trouble us no more!

* The conversation when Faramir and his men discover Frodo and Sam:
--> '''Ranger 1:''' We have not found what we sought. But what have we found?\\
'''Ranger 2:''' Not Orcs.\\
'''Ranger 3:''' Elves?\\
'''Faramir:''' Nay! Not Elves. Elves do not walk in Ithilien in these days. And Elves are wondrous fair to look upon, or so 'tis said.\\
'''Sam:''' Meaning we're not, I take you.
