Gandalf: Confound it all, Samwise Gamgee! Have you been eavesdropping?
Sam: I ain't been droppin' no eaves sir, honest. I was just cutting the grass under the window there, if you'll follow me.
Gandalf: A little late for trimming the verge, don't you think?
Sam: I heard raised voices.
Gandalf: What did you hear? Speak!
Sam: N-nothing important! That is, I heard a good deal about a ring, and a Dark Lord, and something about the end of the world. But.. please Mr. Gandalf, sir, don't hurt me. Don't turn me into anything.. unnatural.
