'Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.'
'Alas! if he should die. Would that there were kings in Gondor, as there were once upon a time, they say!'
'Dark indeed is the hour, and at such times you are wont to come, Mithrandir.'
'Well? Why must you disturb my rest? Will you give me no peace at all by night or day?'
'You speak justly, lord. It is not yet five days since the bitter tidings came that Theodred your son was slain upon the West marches: your right hand, Second Marshal of the Mark.'
'What burden do you bear, Men of Rohan?'
'Sit now beside my chair, Frodo of the Shire! When all have come we will speak together.'
'Queer things you do hear these days, to be sure,'
'A very nice well-spoken gentlehobbit is Mr.Bilbo, as I've always said,'
'Is there anyone in this rout with authority to treat with me?'
'Nay, there was no change of counsel.'
'Greetings! Where do you come from? You are a stranger in the city!'
'No, you don't, Sam!'
'You'll live to regret it, young fellow! Why didn't you go too? You don't belong here; you're no Baggins-you-you're a Brandybuck!'
'Now let the song begin! Let us sing together!'
'You are Peregrin the Halfling? I am told that you have been sworn to the service of the Lord and of the City. Welcome!'
'Hail, and well met at last!'
'I greet you, and maybe you look for welcome. But truth to tell your welcome is doubtful here, Master Gandalf.'
'Do you wonder at that, Ring-bearer? For you know the power of that thing which is now destroyed; and all that was done by that power is now passing away.'
'Rest while you can little fool!'
'Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!'
'Alas! alas! The tidings that I was sent to bring must now be told.'

'But it was at the coming of the Halfling that Isildur's Bane should waken, or so one must read the words.'
'Hail, Frodo! You are abroad late. Or are you perhaps lost?'
'I am called Strider. I am very please to meet you, Master-Underhill, if old Butterbur got your name right.'
'Awake little master! Now at last the hour has come that you have wished for, Frodo.'
'Has he gone?'
'Almost felt you liked the Forest! That's good! That's uncommonly kind of you!'
'Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn.'
'But that can only mean going into the Old Forest. '
'Give me leave, Master Elrond, first to say more of Gondor, for verily from the land of Gondor I am come.'
'I am very fond indeed of it, and of all the dear old Shire; but I think I need a holiday'
'Half a minute, if you please!'
'He is indisposed, He is Resting'

'Hullo Sam! Where've you been?'
'I am the Doorward of Theoden.'
'Ha, hmm, my friends, let us go for a walk!'
'Ach, sss! Cautious, my precious! More haste less speed. We musstn't rissk our neck, musst we , precious?'
'Welcome! We seldom use any tongue but our own; for we dwell now in the heart of the forest, and do not willingly have dealings with any other folk.'
'Who are you, and what are you doing in this land?'
'Hail Aragorn son of Arathorn!'
'Run away now! You'll get plenty when the time comes!'
