QUOTES FROM John Noble CHARACTERS

Denethor
Abandon your posts! Flee, flee for your lives!
Gandalf
(whacks Denethor) Prepare for battle!
Gandalf
Prepare for battle!
Denethor
My line has ended.
Denethor
You think you are wise, Mithrandir. Yet for all your subtlties you have not wisdom. Do you think the eyes of the White Tower are blind? I have seen more than you know. Your right hand you would use as a shield against Mordor, and with your left you would seek to subplot me. I know who rides with Theoden of Rohan. Oh yes, word have reached my ears of this Aragorn, son of Arathorn. And I tell you now, I will not bow to this ranger from the north!
The Dragon Spirit
Aang, use the ocean. Show them the power of Water.
Denethor
No tomb for Denethor and Faramir. No long, slow sleep of death embalmed. We shall burn, like the heathen kings of old. Bring wood and oil.
Denethor
You think you are wise Mithrandir, but for all your subtlelties you have not wisdom. Do you think the eyes of the white tower are blind?! I have seen more than you know. With your left hand you would use as a shield against Mordor, and with your right you would seek to supplant me?! Oh I know who rides with Theoden of Rohan. Oh yes. Word has reached my ears of this Aragorn son of Arathorn, and I tell you now, I will not bow to this ranger from the north, last of a ragged house long bereft of lordship.

Authority is not given to you to deny the return of the king! Steward!
Denethor
The Realm of Gondor is Mine! And no other's!
