The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) Poster

Christopher Lee: Saruman



  • Saruman : We must join with Him, Gandalf. We must join with Sauron. It would be wise, my friend.

    Gandalf : Tell me, "friend", when did Saruman the Wise abandon reason for madness?

  • Saruman : [voiceover]  Moria... You fear to go into those mines. The Dwarves delved too greedily and too deep. You know what they awoke in the darkness of Khazad-dum... shadow and flame.

  • Saruman : Do you know how the Orcs first came into being? They were elves once, taken by the dark powers, tortured and mutilated. A ruined and terrible form of life. Now... perfected. My fighting Uruk-Hai. Whom do you serve?

    Lurtz : Saruman!

  • Hero Orc : The trees are strong, my lord. Their roots go deep.

    Saruman : Rip them all down.

  • Gandalf : [to Saruman]  There is only one Lord of the Ring, only one who can bend it to his will, and he does not share power.

    Saruman : So you have chosen... death.

  • Saruman : [to Gandalf]  Against the power of Mordor there can be no victory.

  • Saruman : Concealed within his fortress, the lord of Mordor sees all. His gaze pierces cloud, shadow, earth, and flesh. You know of what I speak, Gandalf: a great Eye, lidless, wreathed in flame.

  • Saruman : [to Gandalf]  Your love of the Halfings' leaf has clearly slowed your mind.

  • Saruman : [to Gandalf]  I gave you the chance of aiding me willingly, but you have elected the way of pain!

  • Saruman : [to Gandalf]  You did not seriously think that a Hobbit could contend with the will of Sauron, there are none that can.

  • Saruman : The hour is later than you think. Sauron's forces are already moving. The Nine have left Minas Morgul.

    Gandalf : The Nine?

    Saruman : They crossed the River Isen on Midsummer's Eve, disguised as riders in black.

    Gandalf : They've reached the Shire?

    Saruman : They will find the Ring, and kill the one who carries it.

  • Saruman : [to the Uruk-hai hunting party]  Hunt them down. Do not stop until they are found. You do not know pain, you do not know fear. You will taste man-flesh!

  • Gandalf : But we still have time. Time enough to counter Sauron if we act quickly.

    Saruman : Time? What time do you think we have?

  • Saruman : The power of Isengard is at your command, Sauron, Lord of the Earth.
