  • Friendship: they stood up for each other, the adventure made their friendship stronger Adventure: let there hair down, get away, live there life; do it for Gandolph and the fellowship Fulfillment: full fill their life the way they want to live it not the way the men live their; fulfill the goal of destroying the ring
  • Marry &amp; Pippin: over coming their fear of everything - growing up out of the comical ness Samwise Gamsey: chasing after Frodo - into the water, knowing he can’t swim
  • Thelma &amp; Louise: -shooting the guy: not knowing what to do, to turn themselves in or run; running from the law because of it Robbing the store: they needed money, so they had to get some, by robbing the store Lord of the Rings The Ring: the strength of the Ring; attachment to Frodo Sam and Gollom: Sam knowing all along that Gollom was bad news; not trusting him all along
  • T &amp; L women’s rights: shooting Harlan, because he was disrespectful to them Blowing the truck driver’s truck up, because he was making obscene gestures towards them and wouldn’t apologize
