Boromir: Hey Aragorn, do you remember that book they wrote about me?

Aragorn: You mean about "us" don't you?

B: Well, more about me; you got the other two.

A: Ok. Whatever. What about it?

B: Great book, right?

A: I dunno. Had a hard time getting into itóall that stuff about old hobbits and birthday parties, Pippin taking a bath, Frodo drinking tea...y'know?

B: What?! You had trouble reading? I found it easy enough, and I've always thought I was less educated than you, Your Worship.

A: You are.

B: Ok, well did you ever finish reading the book?

A: No. Well, I had Arwen read it to me.

B: (laughs) And I bet you stayed wide awake and heard every word she said.

A: (feigns shock and hurt) Hey, did you hear they made a movie?

B: What's a movie?

A: Like a play, kinda.

B: Ok. I think I get it. After my time, right?

A: Yeah, way after your time. Anyway, in the movie, I find you dying--

B: I donít die until the second book!

A: Yeah, well, you die in the first movie, and I find you dying and call you "brother".

B: Really? If you'd had time before I died, would you have said that?

A: Yeah, I would have.

B: (silent for a moment) Thanks.

A: (grins) A generation of young people now think we are really brothers--by birth.

B: What?! Doesn't anyone in the movie say my father is the Steward of Gondor!?!

A: Yes, you say it, but I guess they donít notice that part. (laughs) I mean, if we were brothers wouldn't that make your/our father King of Gondor? Legolas even says at the Council of Elrond that I am King of Gondor.

B: (laughs) I know the book made things quite clear.

A: That book? It made nothing clear!

B: Well, you should be proud: a generation of young people is growing up just as illiterate as you.

A: I know you are not my brother by birth.

B: Ok, but that's just because you lived the story.

A: It's also because I can think things through.

B: Whatever.

A: In any case, I donít mind people thinking we're brothers; do you?

B: Nah. They can think that if they want to.
