Theoden: I have left instruction. The people are to follow your rule in my stead. Take up my seat in the Golden Hall. Long may you defend Edoras if the battle goes ill.

Theoden: Duty? No, I would have you smile again, not grieve for those whose time has come. You shall live to see these days renewed. No more despair.
