{Gandalf is standing on the Bridge of Khazad-Dum. He has broken the bridge and the Balrog has begun to fall.}
Gandalf: You shall not pass!

{Gimli is looking on, horrified.}
Gimli: Gandalf! You just broke the Bridge of Khazad-Dum! That was an important cultural artefact! Future generations will be taught that you ruined it because it was easier than finding a constructive solution to an extremely temporary problem!

{Gandalf has fallen and is slipping over the edge.}
Gandalf: Fly, you unpragmatic fools!

I took a shortcut and used screencaps. As a result, it's a little hard to see what's going on, but I hope that the scene is well-known enough that people can work it out.

Assembled in Inkscape using screencaps from the LotR movies.
