Is it Legolas to Aragorn and Gimli on their hunt? I don't have the books with me, but I see him saying it in my head.

1420!

Is that Theoden or Eomer about the wild men of Dunharrow that fought for Saruman with the Uruk-hai.

That's Gamling speaking to omer (& Aragorn) about the wild men of the hills, at Helm's Deep. (Gamling had something in common with Tolkien - he knew ancient languages. He translates the 'bellowing' for omer.)

Quote:
‘Yet dawn is ever the hope of men,’ said Aragorn.
‘But these creatures of Isengard, these half-orcs and goblin-men that the foul craft of Saruman has bred, they will not quail at the sun,’ said Gamling. ‘And neither will the wild men of the hills. Do you not hear their voices?’
‘I hear them,’ said omer; ‘but they are only the scream of birds and the bellowing of beasts to my ears.’
‘Yet there are many that cry in the Dunland tongue,’ said Gamling. ‘I know that tongue. It is an ancient speech of men, and once was spoken in many western valleys of the Mark. Hark! They hate us, and they are glad; for our doom seems certain to them. “The king, the king!” they cry. “We will take their king. Death to the Forgoil! Death to the Strawheads! Death to the robbers of the North!” Such names they have for us. Not in half a thousand years have they forgotten their grievance that the lords of Gondor gave the Mark to Eorl the Young and made alliance with him. That old hatred Saruman has inflamed. They are fierce folk when roused. They will not give way now for dusk or dawn, until Thoden is taken, or they themselves are slain.’

Well, not missing so much as refraining from playing Quotable Quotes. I've been in the Quiz Room answering a riddle or maybe two, and writing Song Parodies that no one will appreciate. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Ah, right, a quote from The Two Towers. Hmmm.

Found it! It's Mablung (to Frodo and Sam) in Ithilien.

Well done, Annunfuiniel!

Yes, that was Mablung, Ranger of Ithilien, as he and Damrod guarded Frodo and Sam while Faramir left to lead the ambush of the Southrons. (See near the end of 'Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit'.)

Great, thanks! These quotes are somewhat difficult for me as I haven't read the books in English. But anyway, here's the next one:

I believe this is Sam in the Dead Marshes after Gollum mentions he tried to touch the 'people' in the water. Oooh...I don't want to know why he was trying to get to them either. *shudders*

You're right, of course. I forgot about Merry and Pippin. This particular quote is by Merry, and it refers to that terrible orc-draught they were forced to drink.

That was Theoden, telling Gandalf that he wanted to go to war himself, and not stay behind.
