No it isn't. A version is this is spoken by Eomer, but I assume it's not the one you had in mind since it's slightly different.

So, can we have a hint?

Dark-Eye I'm sorry.

That indeed was the quote I had in mind. But at the time I had not my Return with me. Hence the misquoting.

The thread is yours, anyway. Really sorry.
