"Ninnyhammers! Noodles! My beautiful rope!"

"And to think I trusted my weight to your knot!"


"Say what you like, Mr. Frodo; but I think the rope came by itself... when I called."
...down to the water to see the elves dance and sing upon the midsummer's eve.

From the movie (I know its not relly the right thread):
And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost.
History became legend, legend became myth and for two and a half thousand years, the ring passed out of all knowledge.
Until when chance came, it ensnared a new bearer.

"Fly you fools!" Gandalf (Even in a moment of crisis, he comes through with alliteration!)

"Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo, you fool!" Bilbo Baggins (my mom has this up on the bulletin board)

any part of the Legolas/Gimli contest to see who kills more orcs

"Many who live deserve death, and many who have died deserve life. Can you give that to them, Frodo? Then do not be so hasty as to deal out judgement" Gandalf (My friend put that on a plate and gave it to her anti-death penalty lawyer mom)

There are more, I just do not remember them now!

Another one (or 2 or 3):

"The days are fated to be filled with wonders." --Theoden upon meeting hobbits for the first time

"Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?" --Éothain, TT

and Aragorn's reply: "A man may do both. For not we but those who come after us will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!"
Do you really want to know / Or are you a little scared,
Afraid that God is not exactly what you'd have Him be?

ok i know this wasnt in the film but the film was just as bad!

"Nobody tosses a dwarf!"- Gimli

i mean come on, that wasnt needed!

"Wots that?""this my friend, is a pint!""they come in pints?!right, im getting one!"- Merry and Pippin

"You shall be the fellowship off the ring!""right, where r we goin?"- Pippin

some of the acting was a bit strange as well, such as galadriels lizard eye thing when she sez "i know what u saw frodo..."

there r other bits but im gonna be here 4eva if a quote them all.....
I am what I was, a harmless little devil

Why is it when I see a thread like this anywhere, I know I have tons of favorites, but my mind goes blank when I try to think of specific ones??

But here's one that I've managed to dredge up thanks to a handy copy of FOTR:

(In the Prancing Pony, after Frodo has his "accident")

Strider: "Well? Why did you do that? Worse than anything your friends could have said! You have put your foot in it! Or should I say your finger?"

Lots of good ones, but the one that springs to mind (because I've just been glancing over TTT):

Eomer: We shall see. So many strange things have chanced that to learn the praise of a fair lady under the loving strokes of a Dwarf's axe will seem no great wonder.

This of course being after Eomer thoughtlessly refers to Galadriel as a Sorceress and Gimli takes rather violent exception to it.

Rosa Underhill, Fred and George of the Shire, lol! That's brilliant!

Fave lines...hmm...

"Turn around!...I almost feel I dislike you both." Treebeard to Merry and Pippin

"That's nice, ash on my tomatoes." (from the movie) this has been mentioned before. It was Pippin.

"Got you, Grisnakh! Not quite dead yet, are you?" Ugluk

"Hello, Frodo! I passed the Old Took today. So that's settled." Bilbo

"Stew the rabbits! Spoil beautiful meat Smeagol save for you, poor hungry Smeagol! What for? What for, silly hobbit? They are young, they are tender, they are nice. Eat them, eat them!" Gollum
"Now, now! Each to his own fashion." Sam's reply

"Stripped, eh? What, teeth, nails, hair and all?" Gorbag

Elrond speaking to Sam "No indeed! You at least shall go with him. It is hardly possible to separate you from him, even when he is summoned to a secret council and you are not." (I think that was in the movie too)

"I shall go, unless they chain me up. There must be someone with intelligence in the party." Pippin
"Then you certainly will not be chosen, Peregrin Took!" Gandalf's reply

And many more...but I don't have ROTK right now, my sister does, so I can't find all of my favorite quotes. I love the books and much of the dialogue in it!

mostly these are from or about elves

'Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo
a star shines on the hour of our meeting

Here is Nimrodel! Of this stream the Silvian Elves made many songs long ago, and still we sing them in the North, remembering the rainbow on its falls, and the golden flowers that floated in its foam

Evil has been seen and heard there, sorrow had been known; the Elves feared and disturbed the world outside: wolves were hawling on the wood's borders: but on the land of Lorien no shadow lay.

I think this task is appointed for you, Frodo, and that if you do not find a way no one will. This is the hour of the Shire-folk, when they arrive from their quiet fields to shake the towers and counsels of the Great. they still feel as beautiful as the first time

Very good thread! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] Now lemme do my part to make it a bit longer...

"That settles it!" Said Frodo. "Shortcuts make delays but inns make longer ones. At all costs we must try to keep you away from The Golden Perch..."

"It all depends on what you want," put in Merry. "You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin-to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours-closer then you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friend Frodo."

"I dont deny it, but I will never believe that you are sleeping again,whether you snore or not. I shall kick you hard to make sure." -Frodo talking about Sam, p119

Ok so maybe there not exactly one liners, but there good none-the-less. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] There are so many more I want to post, but it would take all night...LOL.
