* 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!"
* As Frodo is just deciding to take off on his own and is running from his encounter with Boromir, he first runs into Aragorn. When it becomes clear what Frodo is doing, Aragorn tells him "I would have gone with you to the end," and Frodo says he knows. He then asks Aragorn to look after the other, "especially Sam" who will not understand.

* A combination Funny and Heartwarming occurs when Gimli and Legolas are outraged on seeing Merry and Pippin well-fed and ''smoking'' in the ruins of Isengard, after having spent 36+ hours running after them on foot (and then battling through Rohan) and they immediately begin bickering when Pippin retorts that they are enjoying some "well-earned comforts" on the field of victory... meanwhile the Riders of Rohan are laughing at the show, and Théoden sums it up thusly:

* The scene where Frodo and Sam are reunited in Cirith Ungol. It's the first time Sam has seen Frodo since he was stung by Shelob and Sam thought he was dead. Frodo, for his part, has been getting whipped and interrogated "until [he] thought [he] should go mad." After a brief fight with the orc who was whipping Frodo, Sam rushes to him and hugs him, hardly able to see through his tears of relief. Frodo hugs him back, hardly able at first to believe what's happening. Then it sinks in and he relaxes in Sam's embrace, effectively saying that he knows he's safe now, as he calls him "dear Sam." The equivalent scene from the Peter Jackson trilogy was also heartwarming, but not quite a match for the original.



* Beregond's love and admiration for Faramir. He's not even under Faramir's direct command. And while everyone in Gondor thinks Faramir is pretty great, Beregond is one of the few who values Faramir and Boromir equally. And that's well before he storms the Silent Street to rescue Faramir from a premature cremation.

And that's well before he storms the Silent Street to rescue Faramir from a premature cremation. Aragorn even seems to recognize and value this, as he circumvents the capital punishment Beregond would ordinarily have received for this stunt by exiling him from Gondor...[[{{Unishment}} to Ithilien, where he will be the captain of Faramir's personal guard.]] With his extreme loyalty and love for Faramir and his willingness to throw himself in harm's way to protect him, Beregond is essentially Sam's Gondorian counterpart.



* When Sam leans too far over and falls down the embankment at the Black Gate, Frodo immediately bolts after him, risking drawing the attention of the guards to keep his friend from getting captured.



* Underplayed but Eomer's shear joy at finding Théodred still [[TearJerker alive]] hints at how close the cousins are.

* The Houses of Healing, where Aragorn fulfills the prophecy "the hands of a king [[HealingHands are the hands of a healer]]". (Once he gets those hands on some bloody kingsfoil, at least.)

\n* The final scene in the trilogy may also be the most touching. Sam returns to Hobbiton having said goodbye to Frodo, looking to still be as sad as when it happened. Just as he's coming up to his house, his daughter runs out and dashes to hug her father. Sam proudly holds her in his arms as his wife, Rosie, comes out with their baby with a smile on her face as the two kiss. Frodo's last message to him, combined with the accomponying music, may be ''the'' CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming for the entire series:
--> '''Frodo:''' My dear Sam, you cannot always be torn in two. You will have to be one and whole for many years. You have so much to enjoy and to be, and to do. Your part in this story will go on.
--> '''Sam:''' Well...I'm back.

-->'''Sam''': I made a promise, Mr. Frodo, a promise! "Don't you leave him, Samwise Gamgee". And I don't mean to. I don't mean to.

** The distinction between the two is important. Samwise made the initial promise to keep Frodo safe, out of fear of Gandalf. But by the end of the film, Sam has instead made it a promise to stay with Frodo ''no matter what'', just out of loyalty and friendship.

-->'''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.
-->'''Galadriel:''' ''(laughing)'' And I came to test your heart. ''(increasingly dark and forboding)'' You will give me the Great Ring freely and in place of the Dark Lord you will set up a queen. And I shall not be evil, but beautiful and terrible as the morning and the night. Stronger than the foundations of the earth. ''(proclaiming)'' All shall love me and despair! ''(softly, warmly)'' I pass the test. I will diminish and go into the west and remain Galadriel. And you must depart in the morning.

* Then there's the moment from the book that was left out of the Jackson film:
-->'''Frodo:''' It does not seem that I can trust anyone.
-->'''Merry:''' It all depends on what you want. You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin to the bitter end. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word!
