Both, I believe. "That would depend on the manner of your return" was something Denethor said to Faramir in both -- wow, something that made the transition and stayed in the same people's mouths!

Btw, the former quote (Denethor to Faramir) is a bit shorter in the book: "That depends on the manner of your return."
