We watched The Fellowship of the Ring and Two Towers this past weekend. When Return of the King came out in 2003/04, Dennis, Luke, and I saw it at the theater (in IMAX, I believe), and infant Sam was with us. He cried during the very loud previews, but slept peacefully throughout the feature. Back then, we often called him Samwise. Once again, at least for a little while, the name of that faithful, noble, brave, Tolkien character is spoken here.
