#12: Oh Gandalf. I feel that if he knew Mr. Baggins had written him exclaiming "Great Elephants!" into the Red Book he'd have quite a bit to say to him.

Oh, no, there's a totally different explanation for that: "Orodreth" is a girl's name (Orod-Elleth, 'Mountain-maid'). That's why she plays such a subordinate rule, letting first Finrod, then...

So: talking in feigned voices to draw the enemy away into the woods sounds like a very Tolkien scene, but I can't place it at all. It might be Bilbo against the spiders in Mirkwood, but we've already...
