            If you're convinced that no man can kill you, be aware of women because for some reason it's different when they stab you with their sword.

                            I'd imagine that if you hadn't had much food to eat lately, you wouldn't care.

                                  Shelob's Lair supposedly is really big and easy to get lost in, Sam however finds Frodo's sword and little light back in no-time.

                                    When you're on top of an erupting volcano, it makes sense to talk about girls and strawberries.

                                    Despite being told by Captain Faramir that Gollum's path is dangerous and Sam that Gollum is not trustworthy and wants to kill them, Frodo will be dumb enough to trust him anyway.

                                      Even though Sam has never fought with a sword in his life (that we know of) he will be able to beat a tower of orcs and a giant spider. He's a small hairy Rambo.

                                        If you change your mind about your "faithful" servant, send them back home alone across thousands of kilometers of hostile territory. It'll end well.

                                          It's smart to build an army that fights each other as well, instead of making one that is stoic and does nothing other than kill.
