Ah! Found it! Gandalf to Pippin in Minas Tirith, alluding to Aragorn's imminent arrival under unexpected circumstances.

Gollum to Frodo and Sam

PS. Seneka once said 'One who is able to wake a sleeping man, is capable as well of a greatest treachery' (or something of the kind) So here lie the roots of Gollum's mischief

I still remember this from the (relatively) recent Gandalf/Manw debate. It's from UT, Frodo to Gandalf, regarding Gandalf's mysterious and elusive comments about destiny and a higher power -- although I think that Frodo is maybe being a little overgenerous in saying that Gandalf's cryptic comments have helped him to understand anything a little better.

Who said it to whom, I cannot recall, but I believe it was said at Helm's Deep. Is that enough for the prize, or is it just a clue for the next winner?

Re: re

Aragorn is the correct speaker, but Weathertop is the wrong time/location/scene. As an additional hint, the quote was given following an encounter with a servant/servants of the Dark Lord.

Re: re

Let's check with the judges....

Yes, Elanor, the judges say that this quote has gone on too long and your answer is close enough! Aragorn said it in general to the Company after they had been shot at by Orcs and Legolas had shot a Nazgl out of the sky.

Your turn! Ask us!

Re: re

Wow, I can't believe I was right! This will probably be too easy, but here goes...

Who thought that &quot;a warm bath and late breakfast on the lawn afterwards&quot; was preferable to which activity?
