    Sam is Frodo's best friend and the gardner for Bag End. Sam helps Frodo plan his trip to Bree and fully intends to go with him. (He is not caught and forced to by Gandalf) Sam continues to give Frodo crucial guidance, advice and help as they make their way to Mordor after the fellowship falls apart. In one instance Sam is actually about to take the ring himself after Frodo is captured by the orcs (Sam believes him to be dead.) Without Sams help and friendship Frodo would have never made it to Mount Doom.
