What does Gandalf say when he falls?

I have watched and rewatched FOTR and TTT. About 15 times total. But I can still never figure out what Gandalf is saying right before he falls into Shadow and Flame.

He says, "?????, you fools"

And Frodo says "NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!"

Anyone know what Gandalf said?

"Fly you fools"

But to me, it sounds more like "Flutter you fools".

This has been posted before, but I will address it again! (stirring much contoversy! )



He is suposed to say "fly you fools" This is in the books and is on the captioning on the DVD.

BUT!

He acually says "run you fools!"

I have the eyes of a hawk, and the ears of a fox! (and the butt of a greek god!) I think I said the same thing last time, , anyway thats what it sounds like he says.

Now we will see about 30 people disagree with me!

He says, "Fly, you fools."

Right before crossing the bridge, he says, "Over the bridge! Fly!"

Fly = Run, so it's no biggie.

Um...he doesn't say "run," he actually does say "fly." Turn up the volume next time.

And as a follow-up:

Put your hand in front of your mouth and say "fly" and "run." With "run" there is very little air expelled, but with "fly" you get quite a bit with the formation of the "f" in "fly." Now go watch gandalf's hair blow when he says "fly."

It's easy to stir up controversy by stating something incorrect.

We thought it was "fly" but weren't sure.

Thanks for the help!

It is Fly You Fools since I always put the subtitles on in order to comprehend the stupid actors.

"Stupid actors?" I thought everyone did exceptionally well considering all they had to work with. With no actors there'd be no story...

man, your all wrong! He says "run"


Unless you think he was telling the balrog to fly!?

Come on that wouldnt make sence!

Maybe he did say "fly", but he pronounced it wrong. He pronounced it "er-une".

Ridiculous. Now you're being a troll. Goodbye.

Come on, guys. We're all a family in here.

Despite the 8 times I saw the movie (sans subtitles) I had no idea what he said. We guessed:

"Fly"
"Run"
and
"Hurry"

and the previous post saying it sounds kind of like "flutter" was right too. But that would've been stupid.
