You're probably right, i realize 'mate' is commonly used in England to mean 'friend', however, when i read that line it seems that Sam is being likened to an animal mourning the death of it's mate, in which case the word would have a different meaning. But like i said, you're probably right, i just like to wonder [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]. Whether or not Sam and Frodo were lovers i can still relate some of my real-life romantic experiences to them.
