1420! Dwarf Quotes

I thought, since I am a fan of Gimli, that I might start a thread for quotes only of dwarves. These quotes only have to have been said by dwarves, and be from the LOTR trilogy, The Hobbit, or the Silmarillion. Here is the starting quote:

"Will they not say?"

A fairly easy one to start out. Good luck all, and if you need a hint, just reply to this post.

Ok! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] With that hint, I believe that quote is from Gloin, at the Council of Elrond. He was asking the elf lords in attendance to comment on where the elf rings were.

If it counts as a quote, then Gimlis battle cry has to be the coolest battle cry out there.

Actually it is Mim the petty dwarf, who is speaking I believe, to Hurin. This is around when Hurin comes to investigate the ruins of Nagothorond (I dont think I spelled that right, did I?)

Try that one, if you need a hint ask me.

Actualy the reason no one got your first quote is I believe you misquoted.

Did you mean
Quote:
Do as you please in your madness!
Which was said by Gimli to Legolas as he attempted to turn around to ride to the Ent on their way to Isengard.

Now, your second I can't seem to find. It wasn't in the RotK appendix was it, said by Gimli?

It IS Gimli to Legolas, but when they entered Minas Tirth not about Helm's Deep.

Gimli to Gandalf about the doors of Moria? Something like "It passes our skill to do such things these days".

Thorin or Gloin to Gandalf about how they cannot rival the works of their fathers without one of the seven rings given to the dwarf lords.

It was Thorin but it wasn't about a door or rivaling the works of their fathers. The one who tells me what he's talking about may go next.
