Russandol has just left Hobbiton.

I shall pick this thread up again if you don't mind Hobbitlass [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

There is another instance of that quote in ROTK ...

Boromir it was that drove the enemy at last back from this western shore, and we hold still the near half of Osgiliath. For a little while. But we await now a new onslaught there.
Beregond to Pippin in the embrasure of the sixth circle of Minas Tirith

And of course the two you were referring to:

'As a father you shall be to me,' said Merry.
'For a little while,' said Theoden

'Théoden King, Théoden King! Farewell! As a father you were to me. for a little while. Farewell!'
I am sure there are quite probably others that I've overlooked .. it's a common enough phrase .. I wanted to revive this thread as copy-cats are good at making you flick through your books again !
