Let's have a character smackdown.
In this corner, we have...Samewise Gamgee otherwise known as Samwise the Brave!
Sam best quote to Gollum:
In this corner, we have Gollum also known as Sméagol, creator of the infamous "My Precious."
Gollum's best quote to Samwise Gamgee:
"What’s it doing? Stupid, fat Hobbit! It ruins it!"
I seriously want to see these two go at it. I mean for realz! It's hard to say who would win. Gollum is extremely agile and tenacious, comparable to a Timex watch (i.e. takes a licking and keeps on ticking.) But...my money would be on Samwise Gamgee only because he's not as poisoned from the ring as Gollum. And because he has nothing to lose, not to mention brave, I believe he would be the inevitable winner.
What do you think? Who do you think would prevail in this smackdown? What aspects of Tolken's brilliance did you love when he wrote these two timeless characters?
