Re: Yet another!

Is that...um...Sam...or someone, speaking to Frodo about the disaster at the Prancing Pony? <img src=ohwell.gif ALT=":/">

Re: Yet another!

I'd say it was Strider to Frodo at the Pony.

Re: Yet another!

Correct RKittle! Strider said that to poor Frodo after the song and ring incident. Now let's try one from a bit farther back . . .

&quot;A very ticklish business, it was,&quot; he said. &quot;Touch and go!&quot;

Re: Yet another!

Oh...Hannah. After someone gets one right, it is their turn to ask. It's okay because you didn't know, but it's Ron's turn now! <img src=smile.gif ALT="">

Re: Yet another!

Sounds like Gandalf recounting how he managed to rescue the dwarves and Bilbo from the Hall of the Great Goblin.

Re: Yet another!

Thanks, Hannah. Here it is:

Who is speaking, and to whom do they refer?

Re: yet another!

Gandalf about the Lord of the Nazgul and the army marching towards Gondor.

Re: Yet Another!

Okay, how about:

&quot; He knew the answer, didn't he, my precious?&quot;

Might not be word for word, I'm working from memory...

Re: Yet Another!

Sounds like Gollum, I believe (though it may have been Frodo). Don't have the faintest clue where or why he said it.

Re: Yet Another!

Yeah, it was Gollum, talking to Frodo and Sam about fish. I actually got the quote totally wrong,<img src=redface.gif ALT=":O"> it's really &quot;He guessed it long ago, Baggins guessed it.&quot; So have at it!

The days are fated to be filled with wonders.</p>
