Well, it's been ten days, so I would like to take a stab at this thread if Fingolfin II would not like to take the lead, as he answered last....

If he would not, then I can give you guys this...

Quote:
... if you wish to know.
Have fun guessing if Fingolfin doesn't have his own quote.

Argh! Can't remember if he does say wish, or if he says want...
I THINK it was want, so I say FALSE...

If this turns out to be the wrong answer, I know it was Gandalf who said it to Frodo when he woke up in Rivendell

First of all, Nimiriel, you shouldn't have two answers in one post. It sorta defeats the purpose of only having two answers...

Anyway, your first answer of "False" is true (kinda oxymoronic!?!) So, your go.

I think it's false too--if it's reffering to Gimli and Legolas' Orc-slayning contest....

Oki, I just wanted to make sure people got to guess.
The answer is:
TRUE
Legolas to Gimli (Movies) when he shot an arrow in that dead orc Gimli sat on top of.

So, Thorongil, as you came very close and got the true part right, I'll let you have a go

Maybe when you ask the question you should say wether you're thinking of the movie or the book?

Was that to me? I think it was, but the answer was wrong, Fingolfin, so I go again.

Terribly sorry about you not being that clever, Samwise.

But here is a clue,...

(Most of my quotes are from the books. It makes it harder to find and discern the truth or falsity of it)

Well, then it's true, said by Gandalf in the book, though it's by Elrond in the movie.

I think it is false, because I think in the movie Elrond says 'Bring forth the ring, Frodo'.

Well, well, well. What I thought would happen, did happen. You are both right. In the book, Gandalf says, "Bring out the Ring, Frodo!", and in the movie, Elrond says, "Bring forth the Ring, Frodo."

I must say, I did not know what to do at this turn of events... should I flip a coin?

I will say that Evisse should go, because he answered how I thought it should be, and because he answered first.

So, your go, Evisse.

Really sorry about that, Fingolfin II.
