Samwise Gamgee In The Fellowship of the Ring:
At Bilbo's birthday party, Frodo pushes a nervous and shy Sam into dancing with Rosie Cotton. Later on, when Gandalf is telling Frodo about the Ring and that he needs to leave The Shire, Gandalf catches Sam listening under the window. Gandalf decides that Sam will go with Frodo. Merry and Pippin literally run into Frodo and Sam in Farmer Maggot's Fields. At Bree, after Strider drags Frodo upstairs, Sam bursts in, followed by Merry and Pippin, intent on rescuing Frodo. He doesn't trust Strider, but Frodo decides to let Strider lead them to Rivendell.

At Weathertop, it is a cooking fire started by he, Merry and Pippin that draws the Black Riders, the Nazgûl. They attack, knocking Sam aside first. Frodo is wounded with a poisoned blade before Strider arrives and drives the Black Riders off. At Rivendell, he stays at Frodo's bedside until he recovers. Though Sam had always wanted to see Elves, he is now ready to go back home to Hobbiton. After Frodo has volunteered to take the Ring to Mt. Doom in Mordor, Sam interrupts the Council of Elrond insisting that Frodo will go nowhere without him.

Sam stays by Frodo's side throughout the journey. Outside Moria at the Hollin Gate, Sam reluctantly lets Bill the pony go after Aragorn tells him that he won't be able to go into the mines. After Boromir's attempt to take the Ring and the Uruk-hai attack at Amon Hen, Frodo decides to leave the Fellowship behind. When Frodo is noticed to be missing, Sam realizes that he is trying to leave everyone behind. Sam reaches him just as Frodo is pushing off in a boat. Sam risks drowning to stay with Frodo, who drags him out water just in time.
