My memory of The Return of the King is a bit hazy (only saw it once), but I believe that is Sam shouting at Shelob and holding the Phial of Galadriel.

Erm...this quote was asked on page 4 of this thread. This is what The Saucepan Man said about it:
Quote:
Legolas says something like "He is here" when Pippin has taken the Palantir. In Osgiliath, Frodo says "They're here".
So I suppose Lyta would have it the closest. But not to worry, Thorongil! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

P.S. - If I am not mistaken, Lyta has a wonderful new PT! Congrats! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

Many thanks, Goldberry! I have indeed just been re-invented as a "haunted halfling." [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

Now for the hard part--a new quote! (I didn't look on the last page either to figure this one out, but it is odd that it was used again only a page later!) I also noticed that some earlier quotes have lists of up to 5 separate quotes in one question--kind of confusing if you ask me! I think I'll just stick to one:

That's Aragorn in the Paths of the Dead. I always think that part is kind of funny, after hearing it said in Pirates of the Caribbean. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

Should've thought about the fact there is more than one 'I know' in LOTR. However, that slipped my mind when I posted. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

So, sorry Phervasaion, thats not the one I'm thinking of.

Nope, sorry. I never knew how many there really were in LOTR. People say it a lot!

If you want me to do another, I will. If this one's to obscure, or hard...

Could it be Frodo to Aragorn at the end of FotR?

I have an idea for a new rule for this thread. We've established that we should ask quotes that are said only once. However, if somebody accidentaly asks one that is said more than once in the films, it would be nice to give it to the first person who gets it correct even if it's not the exact time the asker was thinking of. Make sense? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

So don't worry, NZ Ringbearer, I'm sure you didn't mean to ask one that was said so many times. But next time if you guys agree to this new "rule" we will give it to the first person who gets it correct so as to avoid having to guess forever. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

I posted this in the FOTR Movie Quotes thread, but it applies here too:

Quote:
I think that it is best to avoid one word quotes unless they are pretty much unique. Otherwise the question just leads to a long list of answers which, although correct, are not the exact quote which the question-setter had in mind, and the question then becomes a bit of a lottery.
That applies to any short quote which is likely to turn up fairly frequently in the films. Please try to keep to quotes which are unique.

I agree to that. Sorry about anything I've caused. but if we are still going with this one, I'll give a few hints to speed it up.

It's not part of a sentance. Like 'I knowwhat it is you saw'

Its singular - 'He's very fond of you.'
'[B]I know[/B}. He'd probably come with me if I asked him...'

AND, It's not in Fellowship (Sorry Goldberry). Make it Easier?

Right - Arvedui III, you win. It wasn't the one I was thinking of, but I'll give it to you, to speed everything up.

For intrests sake, the one I was thinking of was:

"Sam, I need you on my side."
"I am on your side!"
"I know."

Frodo and Sam, in RotK, after Sam has had a fight with Gollum.

Anyway, Your turn, Arvedui III! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]
