Find the Subject

I've looked, and it seems that there are no other threads like this, so let's go!

The object of this game is to find the subject of the quote. You would have to give the book that the quote is from.

Here is an example:
"And I'm not used, _____ ______, to waiting on people while they eat!"
This quote is from Return of the King, and the answer is "Master Beregond". You see? It doesn't necessarily have to be spoken, but try not to get too obscure or that makes it less fun. Or is it more fun? I'm not sure. Well, here's one to start off:

Quote:
Five miles beyond ______ they halted, ending their first day's march.
This is from Return of the King.

Okay, sounds interesting. Are you supposed to say which book it is from? Or is that optional?

Osgiliath?

I didn't think this would be as hard as it is - an Elf other than Legolas said it.

Question

I see that the last two "questioners" have forgotten to list which book their quote came from, as listed in the original rules . . . . . anywho, I'll just give a random quess anyway . . . . . . . . The River

Not a very good guess, I know. But it's 8:30 in the morning here on a Saturday and I'm supposed to be in bed. Mean parents for luring me out of bed with food.
