Thorin, Dwalin, Balin, Fili, Kili, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Bilbo, or some combination of the above.

"We are trapped!" they groaned. "This is the end. We shall surely die here."-
the dwarves and Bilbo, after Smaug smashed the door and trapped them in the mountain in The Hobbit.

No, no, and no. Since you have between you guessed all the logical answers except for the right one, I will give you the answer (hope nobody took me seriously about the chips).
It's from the Sil:
"But Aule said: 'Be not hasty! We ask a greater thing than thou knowest. Let him have peace yet awhile.'"
I know two of those sound like Treebeard should have said them, but I don't believe he ever uses those exact words. He usually addresses Merry as 'Merry', not 'Master Meriadoc'.
I'm not sure what correct thread procedure is in a case like this, so I'm posing another question. Whoever can identify and complete the quote from answer C can take the thread. It's not difficult.
rutslegolas, please only submit one guess at a time. It makes it more fun for the rest of us!

The Sil? Ahh, that would explain why the chips answer seemed like the only one left. Would have hilarious if it was.

I don't believe they had potato chips in Middle-earth. Or microchips. Perhaps they were poker chips? Or... buffalo chips.
Your turn, Arvedui.

Perhaps. Herm, let's have an easy one:

"He is dead...

A. It's as I feared.
B. As he foresaw
C. I shan't ever be able to smoke again without thinking of him.
D. But not forgotten.
E. Ohohoh, look who know's so much. Turns out your friend here is only mostly dead. With mostly dead, you're still a little bit alive.

The correct answer is C.
It is Merry, in regards to King Theoden's death, after he wakes up in the House of Healing, and asks Aragorn, Gandalf, and Pippin for a smoke.
And Pippin says: Smoke then, and think of him.
Or something like that.
Anyhow. the game is to name the quoter and the finished quote.
There. Is it right?
Thanks,
Eowyn SKywalker

Good try, Eowyn Skywalker. C was the trap answer. Merry says a little bit before he declars not to smoke. Sleepy is right. Your go, Mr. Ranger.
