Close enough Bruce for me to pass the baton.

T'was Meriadoc's outburst at being informed he was off to Minas Tirth with Boromir during the Breaking Of The Fellowship.

That would be Sam to Frodo when Frodo's strength was almost gone nearing the end of their journey near the Mountain of Doom (yet too far away for Frodo I bet).

You are both correct, but the credit for correct answer must go to Lostgaeriel, who sent me a PM before either of you answered.

From Lostgaeriel:
Quote:
Hi Bruce!
I'm getting nasty error messages when I try to reply to this thread. So for now, I'm answering privately.

'Shall we shoot?'

That's Faramir to Frodo at the Forbidden Pool - regarding Gollum.

Aratlithiel and eleanor_niphredil:

I'm sorry about answering by PM, but I couldn't post a reply at all. I kept trying, hoping I could post before someone else did. But I guess accepting a PM in cases such as these is at the discretion of the quote-poser.

So here's the next quote.

Nooo, it wasn't Gandalf to Aragorn. Read the quote more carefully.
