*** This is made even funnier because its intercut with commentaries by Creator/JohnRhysDavies and Creator/Christopher 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.

* Aragorn decides that he wants to keep the name "Strider" among his numerous other titles and figures that it'll sound all right if he puts it in Quenya (Telcontar).

** What makes the scene even funnier is Aragorn shouting 'Halt' in Elvish without looking, thinking it was an intentional shot and the one responsible an immortal Elf instead of an old Rohirrim man who is shocked at his own results.

* Gimli versus Wargs. Kills one and it falls on top of him. While trying to lift the warg off an orc pokes its head up and he kills it, adding to the pile. Cue the second warg, a look of absolute OhCrap from Gimli... and [[RuleOfThree Aragorn kills it]], plunging [[HumiliationConga another massive heavy body on top of Gimli]].

Gimli's face, a mixture of OhCrap and YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe, really sells it.

* When Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, and Gandalf arrive at Edoras, they are told to leave behind their weapons. After Aragorn gets incredibly possessive over Anduril, he finally consents to lay it down with the others. Gandalf puts down his sword as well, and [[GenreSavvy Hama, the door warden, tells him to leave behind his wizard's staff.]] Gandalf clutches it tightly, leans over, and says surely Hama wouldn't be cruel enough to part an old man from his walking stick, would he? He threatens that if Theoden will be rude enough to take away his stick, he'll just sit outside and wait until Theoden decides to hobble out and talk to him.
** Hama's response is basically, "I know you're full of BS, but since you're Gandalf, I trust you. Go on in."

* The Gaffer mentions that a creepy man in a black cloak came to Bag End looking for "Baggins" and that he sent him off just before Frodo and Sam came back. ''Unfinished Tales'' reveals that the cloaked man was Khamûl of the Nazgûl, the Witch-King of Angmar's right hand. An elderly Hobbit got away with telling one of the most powerful evil supernatural beings in Middle-Earth to go screw himself.

* 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.
