Nope. It wasn't Gandalf to Théoden, either. It wasn't Gandalf at all. Get off the Helm's Deep train of thought - that will help.

Aye, that one took a bit of searching. It was Hirgon to Theoden as the call for aid was delivered.

Yes! Beren87 got it. It was indeed Hirgon, carrying the Red Arrow. (ROTK Muster of Rohan) I had thought that 'walls' was a good clue to Minas Tirith but it stumped a couple of people. Your turn.

Question

That would be Gandalf about the Palantir being his downfall talking about "how it seemed clear to him" that he made contact with Sauron when using it and that caused his downfall, e.t.c.

That would be Gandalf out loud to the nine walkers as the watcher in the water attacked them at the gate of Moria.

Easy one again, but my friend is borrowing my books and its all I can quote off of the top of my head without a possibility of mis-qouting. Good Luck.

It's Legolas to Gandalf in Fangorn, when he tells them they have to go to Edoras. ("The white rider")

Hm, that one took me quite a lot of searching in the book, but finally I found it! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

It is Legolas who says this to Gimli, when they look for bootprints of the old man they have seen in the night.
" Maybe", said the elf "but a heavy boot might leave no print here: the grass is deep and springy"
