"I Can't Carry It for You... but I Can Carry You." is the fifty-first scene of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King and the sixty-sixth scene of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (extended edition).

In this scene, Frodo and Sam are struggling up Mount Doom when Frodo collapses, unable to go any further. Sam then proceeds to carry him up the mountain, professing that while he cannot carry the Ring, he can carry the Ring-bearer, hence the quote: "I can't carry it for you, but I can carry you."
