Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
written by Frances Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Stephen Sinclair, and Peter Jackson, from the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien

Smeagol/Gollum: Master - master looks after us, master wouldn't hurt us! Master broke his promise! Don't ask Smeagol! Poor, poor Smeagol! Master betrayed us! Wicked, tricksy, false! We ought to ring his filthy little neck! Kill him! Kill him! Kill them both! And then we take the precious, and we be the master! (Gollum laughs) But the fat hobbit, he knows! Eyes always watching! Then we stabs them out! Put out his eyeses, and make him crawl! Yes, yes, yes! Kill them both! Yes! No, no! It's too risky, it's too risky! (Sam and Frodo appear from atop the hill yelling, looking for Smeagol) We could let her do it. Yes, she could do it. Yes, precious, she could. And then we takes it once they're dead! (gasp) Once they're dead! Shhhhhh! (jumps out from behind a tree, revealing himself to Sam and Frodo) C'mon hobbits! Long ways to go yet! Smeagol will show you the way! Follow me...!
