Thread: What are Gandalf's last words in Moria?

  1. #1

    Question What are Gandalf's last words in Moria?

    In Fellowship of the Ring, when Gandalf is hanging off the cliff in Moira, and Frodo is being restrained from running to him, what is the last thing that Gandalf says before he plunges into the darkness? He seems to say 3 words: "___ you fools?" I can never make it out. If anybody could tell me, I'd appreciate it.

    His last words are, "Fly, you fools!".

    I want to debate on that...wasn't it actually four words? F*** off, you fools? Don't remember...

    It was something with an 'f' like sorillion said...so maybe it is 'fly'...and I heard the fourth word just in my head...that happens more...

    AFAIK he says "fly, you fools" in the film. The first time I heard him say it I didn't understand it either, but the subtitles say it's "fly".
    And in the German version he says "flieht", which is the translation of "fly".

    Re: What are Gandalf's last words in Moria?

    you're right, I just checked the dutch translation and it's 'vlieg' which is the dutch translation of 'fly'! You should know that, Turambar, you're dutch yourself...If not...I fear about your knowledge in your own language...

    Re: What are Gandalf's last words in Moria?

    i had to use subtitles too. In the movie it is fly you fools. I don't feel like getting my books out, but it may be run in the book.

    yeah it was 'fly,you fools' b/c those were his last words in the book and it was kept like that in the movie.
    I wish that I could find the answer

    "Fly you fools" is correct ~ unfortunately Ian McKellen tends to mumble a bit and often I can only understand what he's saying with either (a) volume turned right up, (b) subtitles or (c) knowledge of the book

    Re: What are Gandalf's last words in Moria?

    Well can't anybody slow the sound down...I have a special sound system on my dvd player which I can manipulate the sound of it in any way I want so with careful testing I figured it out without subtitles which again confirms what is actually said... 'fly you fools', (sorry that I thought it was F*ck Off...as Elladan said...he tends to mumble in the movies...)

    Re: What are Gandalf's last words in Moria?

    Hrm.. mistake on my part, it seems. Always assumed he said "run", I presume...

    Either way, that's what's been said in the books as well, so poo on me

    lol I always knew what he said as I watched it with Norwegian subtitles...
    Unless I did I would never have understood a word of that mumbling he does all the time!
    Shame I didn't see this thread before... :S
