* When Boromir's body has been placed in a boat to go over the Falls of Rauros, we cut to Aragorn strapping Boromir's vambraces (armour for the forearms) onto his own arms. It was Viggo Mortensen's idea for Aragorn to take them, both as a tribute to their fallen companion and to constantly remind himself of the promise he made to Boromir: to save Minas Tirith and their people. He wears them throughout the rest of the trilogy, [[spoiler: and is even buried in them over a century later, showing he ''never'' forgot his promise.]]

* Sam's speech at the end of The Two Towers; even Gollum was visibly affected by this speech, at least for a moment.

* Bilbo's final line in ''The Return of the King'': "I think I'm ''quite'' ready for another adventure!" Made all the more touching when Elrond, who took care of Bilbo during his stay in Rivendell, escorts the wizened Hobbit onto the ship.

* The AwardBaitSong "Into The West" by Annie Lennox is a CMOH for AwesomeMusic, basically a song about adventurers/warriors who have gone through harrowing experiences and finally get to rest. It fits not only with the story and characters, but also in a meta example for the whole production crew; It's been an experience of truly epic proportions spanning several years of nonstop production, and they can all finally take a real rest and look back on experiences that brought them together. There's a reason they won an Oscar for this one.

* Aragorn and Arwen. Something about the badass, always-ragged, grim WarriorPoet and the beautiful, gentle elf girl just gets me. Especially the vision in The Two Towers...

* One from the cast commentary of either ''The Two Towers'' or ''Return of the King''. Miranda Otto, who played Éowyn, was recounting about how when she saw Liv Tyler, who played Arwen, she'd decided she wouldn't go up to her because she didn't think it would be right to just go up to one of "the big stars." Liv Tyler apparently didn't agree; she ran right up to Miranda Otto, gave her a big hug, and exclaimed (paraphrased) "There's another woman here; I'm so glad! We can hang out and stuff..."
* Sean Astin's short film [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhaI3HB7Hgc ''"The Long and Short of It"'']], which portrays a man of average height receiving assistance from a very tall man and a very short woman. [[SomeAnvilsNeedtobeDropped We've all got something that makes us special.]]

* And before all that, Aragorn and Boromir have a sort of subtler FriendshipMoment in Lothlorien. Boromir, in a shaking voice, is confessing he's almost crossed the DespairEventHorizon, that he "cannot see [hope]" and Aragorn just sits with him, concerned and patiently listening. Boromir talks about the pressure of his position, to do right by his father and "see the glory of Gondor restored" and then he speaks lovingly of his home, the White City, and asks Aragorn if he's seen it. Aragorn says he has, and Boromir says one day they'll go there together, and the people will take up the call that "the lords of Gondor have returned!"

**There's also Galadriel's reaction to his request. She only really loses her serene expression twice--once when tempted by the Ring, and when Gimli bashfully compliments her and asks for a hair, and she breaks into a huge smile.

** Galadriel told Legolas that at the sound of a gull he would be drawn to go across the sea to Valinor. He hears that gull before he, Aragorn, and Gimli reach Minas Tirith at the Battle of Pelennor. Legolas actively stayed behind despite constantly being drawn to Valinor for some hundred or so years after the gull due to his friendship with Aragorn and Gimli.

** Frodo is still reeling from the death of Gandalf in Moria, and they're being held by Haldir and the elves of Lothlorien. Frodo looks around at everyone and sees them all look at him and look away, except for Boromir, who offers him some consolation.
--->'''Boromir:''' Gandalf's death was not in vain. Nor would he have you give up hope. You carry a heavy burden, Frodo; don't carry the weight of the dead.
