The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
Gollum: [to Sam] Stupid, fat hobbit.

Gollum: We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!
Smeagol: No. Not master!
Gollum: Yes, precious, false! They will cheat you, hurt you, LIE.
Smeagol: Master is our friend!
Gollum: You don't have any friends; nobody likes you!
Smeagol: I'm not listening... I'm not listening...
Gollum: You're a liar and a thief.
Smeagol: No!
Gollum: *Murderer*.
Smeagol: Go away!
Gollum: "Go away?"
[Gollum laughs as Smeagol begins crying]
Smeagol: I hate you, I hate you.
Gollum: Where would you be without me, gollum, gollum? I saved us! It was me! We survived because of me!
Smeagol: [stops crying] Not anymore.
Gollum: What did you say?
Smeagol: Master looks after us now. We don't need you anymore.
Gollum: What?
Smeagol: Leave now, and never come back!
Gollum: No!
Smeagol: Leave now, and never come back!
[Gollum screams in frustration]
Smeagol: LEAVE! NOW! AND NEVER COME BACK!
[Gollum is silent]
Smeagol: [looks around] We told him to go away... and away he goes, Precious! Gone, gone, gone! Smeagol is free!

Gollum: [singing] The rock and pool, is nice and cool, so juicy sweet. Our only wish,
[he whacks the fish on the rock]
Gollum: to catch a fish,
[another whack]
Gollum: so juicy sweet.

Gollum: We be nice to them, if they be nice to us.

[last lines]
Frodo: Smeagol?
Sam: We're not going to wait for you. Come on.
Smeagol: Master. Master looks after us. Master wouldn't hurt us.
Gollum: Master broke his promise.
Smeagol: Don't ask Smeagol. Poor, poor Smeagol.
Gollum: Master betrayed us. Wicked. Tricksy, False. We ought to wring his filthy little neck. Kill him! Kill him! Kill them both! And then we take the precious... and we be the master!
Smeagol: But the fat Hobbit, he knows. Eyes always watching.
Gollum: Then we stabs them out. Put out his eyeses, make him crawl.
Smeagol: Yes. Yes. Yes.
Gollum: Kill them both.
Smeagol: Yes. No! No! It's too risky. It's too risky.
Sam: Where is he? Where has he gone? Hey, Gollum! Where are you?
Frodo: Smeagol?
Gollum: We could let *her* do it.
Smeagol: Yes. She could do it.
Gollum: Yes, precious, she could. And then we takes it once they're dead.
Smeagol: Once they're dead. Shh.
[Comes out of hiding]
Smeagol: Come on Hobbits. Long ways to go yet. Smeagol will show the way.
Gollum: Follow me.

Sam: What we need is a few good taters.
Gollum: What's taters, precious? What's taters, eh?
Sam: *Po-tay-toes!* Boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew... Lovely big golden chips with a nice piece of fried fish.
[Gollum makes a noise of disgust while sticking his tongue out]
Sam: Even you couldn't say no to that.
Gollum: Oh yes we could. Spoilin' nice fish. Give it to us raw and w-r-r-riggling; you keep nasty chips.
Sam: You're hopeless.

Sam: There are dead things! Dead faces in the water.
Gollum: All dead... all rotten. Elves and men and orcses. A great battle, long ago. The Dead Marshes... yes, that is their name.

Gollum: So bright... so beautiful... ah, Precious.
Frodo: What did you say?
Gollum: Master should be resting, Master needs to keep up his strength.
Frodo: [standing up] Who are you?
Gollum: Mustn't ask us, not it's business. Gollum, gollum.
Frodo: Gandalf told me you were one of the River-folk.
Gollum: Cold be heart and hand and bone. Cold be travelers far from home.
Frodo: [next to Gollum] He said your life was a sad story.
Gollum: They do not see what lies ahead, when Sun has faded and Moon is dead.
Frodo: [in front of Gollum] You were not so very different from a Hobbit once, were you?
[Gollum looks up at him]
Frodo: Smeagol.
Gollum: What did you call me?
Frodo: That was your name once, wasn't it?
Gollum: My name? My name... Smeagol.

Gollum: He wants the precious. Always he is looking for it. And the precious is wanting to go back to him... But we mustn't let him have it.

Gollum: But, the fat hobbit. He knows. Eyes always watching.

Sam: Who are they?
Gollum: Wicked men. Servants of Sauron. They are called to Mordor. The Dark One is gathering all armies to him. It won't be long now. He will soon be ready.
Sam: Ready to do what?
Gollum: To make his war. The last war that will cover all the world in shadow.

Gollum: We swears to serve the master of the precious. We will swear on... on... the precious!

Gollum: Don't follow the lights.

Gollum: He is drawing all evil to him.

Gollum: [Sméagol is sobbing] Sméagol... Why does he cry, Sméagol?
Smeagol: Cruel men hurts us. Master tricksed us.
Gollum: Of course he did. I told you he was tricksy. I told you he was false.
Smeagol: Master is our friend... our friend.
Gollum: Master betrayed us.
Smeagol: No, not it's business. Leave us alone.
Gollum: Filthy little hobbites. They stole it from us.
Smeagol: No... No.
Faramir: What did they steal?
Gollum: Myyy PRECIOUSSS.
[shrieks]

Gollum: I found it, I did. A way through the marshes. Orcs don't use it. Orcs don't know it. They go round for miles and miles. Come hobbitses, soft and quick as shadows we must be.

Gollum: Sneaky little hobbitses.

Gollum: Oh! Cruel hobbit! It does not care if we be hungry. It does not care if we should die! Not like Master. Master cares. Master knows. Yes, precious...
[Frodo takes hold of the ring]
Gollum: Once it takes hold of us it never lets go.

[about the Ring Wraiths]
Sam: I thought they were dead!
Gollum: Dead? No, you cannot kill them. No.

Sam: Haven't you had any sleep, Mr. Frodo?
[Frodo shakes his head]
Sam: I've gone and had too much... it must be getting late.
Frodo: No, it isn't. It isn't midday, yet. The days are growing darker.
Gollum: Come on! We must go, no time!
Sam: Not before Mr. Frodo's had something to eat.
Gollum: [impatiently] No time to lose, silly!
Sam: [Gives Frodo lembas] Here.
Frodo: What about you?
Sam: Oh, no, I'm not hungry. Leastways, not for lembas bread.
Frodo: Sam...
Sam: All right... we don't have that much left. We have to be careful, we don't want to run out. You go ahead and eat that, Mr. Frodo. I've rationed it... there should be enough.
Frodo: Enough for what?
Sam: The journey home.

Sam: [Frodo is being drawn toward Cirith Ungol] No, Mr. Frodo!
Gollum: [in a panic] Not that way! Oh! What's he doing?

Sam: It must be getting near tea-time, leastways in decent places where there *is* still tea-time.
Gollum: We're not *in* decent places.

Smeagol: ...and take it for ME.
Gollum: For us.
Smeagol: Yes, we... we meant for us.

Gollum: Wake up. Wake up. Wake up, sleepies. We must go, yeeees, we must go at once.
Sam: Haven't you had any sleep, Mr. Frodo?

Sam: Not until Mr. Frodo has had something to eat.
Gollum: No time to lose, silly.
Sam: [Gives Frodo lembas bread] Here, eat this.
Frodo: What about you?
Sam: I'm not hungry. Leastways, not for lembas bread.
Frodo: Sam...
Sam: All right... we don't have that much left. You go ahead and eat that, Mr. Frodo. I've rationed it... there should be enough left.
Frodo: For what?
Sam: The journey home.

Sam: I heard it from his own mouth! He means to murder us!
Gollum: Never! Smeagol wouldn't hurt a fly!

Sam: What are you up to? Sneaking off, are we?
Gollum: Sneaking? Sneaking? Fat Hobbit is always so polite. Smeagol shows them secret ways that nobody else could find, and they say "sneak!" Sneak? Very nice friend. Oh, yes, my precious. Very nice, very nice.
Sam: All right, all right! You just startled me is all. What were you doing?
Gollum: Sneaking.

Gollum: She's always hungry. She always needs to feed. She must eat. All she gets is nasty Orcses.
Smeagol: And they doesn't taste very nice, does they, Precious?
Gollum: No. Not very nice at all, my love.

[Gollum and Frodo stand in front of a tunnel opening, and Frodo hesitates to go in]
Gollum: It's the only way. Go in, or go back.
Frodo: I cannot go back.

Gollum: They cursed us. Murderer they called us. They cursed us, and drove us away. And we wept, Precious, we wept to be so alone. And we only wish to catch fish so juicy sweet. And we forgot the taste of bread... the sound of trees... the softness of the wind. We even forgot our own name. My Precious.

Gollum: [singing] Naughty little fly. Why does he cry? Caught in a web. Soon you'll be... eaten.

Frodo: What is this place?
Gollum: Master must go inside the tunnel.
Frodo: Now that I'm here, I don't think I want to.

Sam: Sam: what are you up to? Sneaking off are we?
Gollum: Gollum: Sneaking? Sneaking? Fat hobbit is always so polite. Smeagol shows them secret way that nobody else could find. And they say sneak! Sneak? Very nice friend oh yes My Precious very nice...
Sam: Sam: All right all right! You just startled me is all. What were you doing?
Gollum: Gollum: Sneaking.
Sam: Sam: Fine have it your own way. I'm sorry to wake you Mr Frodo, we have to be moving on.
Frodo: Frodo: It's dark still
Sam: Sam: It's always dark here. It's gone! The elven bread!
Frodo: Frodo: what? That's all we have left.
Sam: Sam: He took it! He must have!
Gollum: Gollum: Smeagol? Oh no not poor Smeagol. Smeagol hates nasty elf bread
Sam: Sam: You're a lying wretch. What did you do with it?
Frodo: Frodo: He doesn't eat it. He can't have taken it.
Gollum: Gollum: Look. What's this? Crumbs on his jacketses. He took it! He took it! I seen him
Sam: Sam: That's a filthy lie! 'hits Gollum to the ground and starts to wail on him'

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
Gandalf: There is one other who knew Bilbo had the Ring. I looked everywhere for the creature Gollum, but the enemy found him first. I don't know how long they tortured him, but through the endless screams and inane babble, they discerned two words:
Gollum: SHIRE! BAGGINS!
Frodo: Shire? Baggins? But that would lead them here!
[Cuts to a Ringwraith cutting off a Hobbit's head]
Frodo: [holding out the Ring] Take it Gandalf!
[Gandalf backs away]
Frodo: Take it!
Gandalf: No, Frodo.
Frodo: You must take it!
Gandalf: You cannot offer me this ring!
Frodo: I'm giving it to you!
Gandalf: Don't... tempt me Frodo! I dare not take it. Not even to keep it safe. Understand, Frodo. I would use this ring from a desire to do good... But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine.

Gollum: It came to me, my own, my love... my... preciousssss.

Andy Serkis: That's enough, Gollum.
Gollum: Piss off, Serkis! You stupid fat woofish fucking turd!
Andy Serkis: I'm... I'm not fat.
Gollum: We're not gonna thank anyone, no no! Not you, not MTV, and not those pixel pushing pindicks at Weta Digital! And Peter Jackson, my precious, who do you think you are, you fucking hack! Shame on you! Shame on you! Go fuck yourself!
Sméagol: Not listening. Not listening.
Gollum: Frankly, nothing can compensate for the long hours and low pay and miserable experience we've had making this fucking movie. And if you think a shitty little tub of gold popcorn is gonna remotely make up for everything we've suffered, you're sadly fucking mistaken! You're all bastards! MTV sucks! We hate you all!
Sméagol: Goodnight.
