(AUDIO: Sam and Faramir)
"Sam was the gardner of Bag End, serving both Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. When the conspiracy was unmasked it became clear that it was Sam all along who had been keeping an eye out on Frodo. During the Council of Elrond there was no doubt that he should join Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring on their quest. Sam caught Frodo as he was trying to leave the Fellowship behind to enter Mordor all by himself. So it came that Frodo and Sam went to Mordor together. After the confrontation with Shelob, who Sam killed using Sting, Frodo was taken by orcs and Sam had to pursue them to free his master. After he freed his master they proceded to Mount Doom together and he saw how Gollum bit the One Ring of the finger of Frodo and fell into the Cracks of Doom. After the quest was over Sam married Rose Cotton and became Thain of the Shire. After Rose died he left middle-earth as he had also been a Ring Bearer.
'No indeed!' said Elrond, turning towards him with a smile. 'You at least shall go with him. It is hardly possible to seperate you from him, even when he is summoned to a secret coucil and you are not.'
Sam sat down, blushing and muttering. 'A nice pickle we have landed ourselves in, Mr. Frodo!' he said, shaking his head.
