Aragorn : What do you fear, my lady? Eowyn : A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.
Eowyn sees them off, and again has a cup. Tolkien says that she: set it to her lips and drank a little, wishing them good speed; and then she gave the cup to Aragorn, and he drank, and he said: ‘Farwell, Lady of Rohan! I drink to the fortunes of your House, and of you, and of all your people.
Arwen : And to that I hold. I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone. Arwen : I choose a mortal life. Aragorn : You cannot give me this.
No, Eowyn was not dead when Aragorn called her back, though she was dying. He healed her of what would otherwise have been a terminal illness (the Black Breath), but he did not resurrect her.

‘Verily,’ said Gandalf, now in a loud voice, keen and clear, ‘that way lies our hope, where sits our greatest fear. Doom hangs still on a thread. Yet hope is still, if we can but stand unconquered for a little while.
The Evenstar given to Aragorn In Peter Jackson’s films, the jewel is replaced by the Evenstar, a silver necklace with a white stone, which is given to Aragorn by Arwen in Rivendell.
Glǽmscrafu – Glorfindel’s greeting to Aragorn.
Galadriel: “Namárië.” (Farewell.) “Nadath nâ i moe cerich.” (There is much you have yet to do.)”
“You move me, Gimli,” said Legolas. “I have never heard you speak like this before. Almost you make me regret that I have not seen these caves. Come!

An event in the Battle of the Pelennor; see that entry for an overview: Merry’s Sword had stabbed [the Witch-king] from behind … … Then he looked for his sword that he had let fall; for even as he struck his blow his arm was numbed, and now he could only use his left hand.
Rather than being able to defeat the Witch-king simply because she’s a woman, anyone on the battlefield could have felled the enemy under the right circumstances, but it was Éowyn whose courage and strength held out, making her victory all the more glorious.
As he is about to finish off the stricken king, Éowyn arrives and confronts him. The two duel briefly before Merry stabs the Witch-king in the leg, disabling him and allowing Éowyn to deliver the killing blow.
Frodo Baggins: Frodo did not marry nor have any children. Meriadoc (Merry) Brandybuck: Merry married Estella Bolger and they had at least one son together.
Legolas never marries. The closest he gets is spending the rest of his life, as far as we know, with Gimli; they travel around Middle Earth for decades together, and eventually Gimli is given special dispensation to travel to the Undying Lands with his “friend” Legolas—the only dwarf ever to do so.
During the War of the Ring, Éowyn fell in love with Aragorn, who did not return his affections to her. She later disguised herself as a man and took Merry with her to the Battle of Pelennor Fields. She later destroyed the Witch king, with Merry helping her defeat him.
Aragorn is Dunedain and was never marked as Half-Elven. Despite his close contact with the Elves, he never had the option of whether or not to choose the Fate of the Elves or the Gift of Man and he was always doomed to die eventually.
Gandalf: “Westu hál. Ferðu, Théodred, Ferðu.” (Be-thou well. Go-thou, Théodred, go-thou.)
