LOTR: A conversation.

1: Hey guys, we’ve got this epic quest ahead of us.

2: Yeah, better start packing, it’ll be a long walk.

1: Walk? Can’t we just call the eagles and get it boxed off this afternoon, like, pronto?

2: Nah, we’ll walk.

1: You DO know if we walk there’ll be mountains to climb, rivers to cross, forests to brave, caves to dare.. not the mention the Trolls, and Black Riders, and Goblins, and Orcs, and Goblins, and Uruk-Hai, and Stone Giants, and Wargs, and Crebain, and Mamukil, and Azog, and Bolg, and the Balrog, and Shelob, and Morgoth, and the Witch-King, and Nazgul, and Khamul, and Gothmog, and Ungoliant….
Let’s just call the eagles, hey?

2: Nah, we’ll walk.
