* Among the moment of awesome that is Sauron's defeat and the collapse of his tower, Merry is the only one to look at the situation like, "Frodo did it!" and shout out his name rather than everyone else having the looks of, "Sauron is dying!"

* Faramir and Frodo share a powerful moment when Frodo and Sam are first brought to Menegroth and sit to dinner. Faramir's entire company stands in respectful silence while gazing at the setting sun before sitting at the table. When Frodo asks the significance of this, Faramir explains that it is a custom in Gondor to reflect on their home, Numenor, and the Blessed Realm, which lie in the West. This makes Frodo feel uncomfortably rustic and uncultured, especially when Faramir asks if they have no such customs of their own - he can only say that when they are guests they rise and thank their host after a meal. Faramir's response is both heartwarming and awesome:
-->'''Faramir:''' That we do also.

-->'''Frodo:''' Lady Galadriel, I will give you the One Ring, if you ask for it. I will give you the One Ring, if you ask for it. It's too great a matter for me.

** All in all, seeing Boromir as he once was is heartwarming. He was never an evil man, that's just what the Ring and the pressure his father heaped upon him turned him to. When he could be himself, he was a brave, kind-hearted protector of both his people and his little brother.

* Boromir's FamousLastWords to Aragorn. "I would have followed you, my brother. My captain. ''My king''." Doubles as a TearJerker.
** The lead up to those words: when Boromir is dying in utter despair, claiming that he's failed the Fellowship and lamenting that not only his city but his entire race is doomed, Aragorn - whom Boromir has only gradually come to accept, and who seems to identify more with the Elves - swears to save the White City, and '''"our people"'''. You can see the joy and hope in Boromir's face, as he believes at last that there's a chance for the race of Men to survive. He dies content instead of despairing, thanking and accepting Aragorn fully with his final words.

* Frodo and Bilbo's meeting at Rivendell.
* At the council, several of the characters take turns talking about what happened and what is happening in the world at large. After everyone present is caught up on the story of the Ring, Elrond says that it must be destroyed- to which Bilbo, well over 120 by this time, remember, stands up without hesitation saying he gets the implication and as the one that started the whole avalanche he is willing to finish it and destroy the Ring. Everyone present just gives him a well-meaning smile and looks on him with respect: They know the offer is earnest, but they also know that it is far beyond Bilbo's power. Glóin is even said to be expressly recalling fond memories of his previous adventure with Bilbo.

* There's something very sweet about Gandalf, wizard of the Istari Order, a Maiar of Varda in the service of Eru Ilúvatar, who can dispatch a room full of orcs in a flash of light and defeat a ''Balrog'', genuinely enjoying himself entertaining the hobbit children with fireworks.
** There is also this line, showing the great regard and protectiveness Gandalf has toward the hobbits in general:
-->"Life in the wide world goes on much as it has in this past age: full of its own comings and goings; scarcely aware of the existence of hobbits...for which I am very thankful."

* Théodred's warhorse Brego is called "half-mad" by at least a few of the Rohirrim from being so distraught after his rider's death. Aragorn calms him and tells them to set the horse free, as "he has seen enough of war." After Aragorn's fall off the cliff, [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe Brego finds him, wakes him up, and gives him a ride to Helm's Deep.]]

* Gandalf's reappearance in ''The Two Towers''. Aragorn being struck completely speechless and then only managing to say, "You fell..." unable to believe that he's truly come back. After he tells them how he survived (or didn't, rather) the fall and the fight with the Balrog, he explains how he's come back "at the turn of the tide." After this, Aragorn is smirking, and teases Gandalf about how he still speaks cryptically. The look on his face? That's the look of a man who's just had his hope restored.
