Thumbs up correct, of course !

I think the reason why we play these games is not only the fun of guessing, but to have a pretext to post all those sentences we're fond of...

That's Frodo to Gandalf about Gollum:

"I can't understand you. Do you mean to say that you, and the Elves, have let him live on after all those horrible deeds?"

Has to be in Moria...

"What it was I cannot guess, but I have never felt such a challenge. The counter-spell was terrible. It nearly broke me. For an instant the door left my control and began to open! I had to speak a word of Command. That proved too great a strain. The door burst in pieces."
