'What burden do you bear, Men of Rohan?'
'Hail, and well met at last!'
'Half a minute, if you please!'
'Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dillo!'
'Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.'
'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.'
'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.'
'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!'
'But that can only mean going into the Old Forest. '
'Sit now beside my chair, Frodo of the Shire! When all have come we will speak together.'
'Dark indeed is the hour, and at such times you are wont to come, Mithrandir.'
'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.'
'Hullo Sam! Where've you been?'
'Alas! alas! The tidings that I was sent to bring must now be told.'
'Now let the song begin! Let us sing together!'
'I am the Doorward of Theoden.'
'You are Peregrin the Halfling? I am told that you have been sworn to the service of the Lord and of the City. Welcome!'
'I am called Strider. I am very please to meet you, Master-Underhill, if old Butterbur got your name right.'
'Hail, Frodo! You are abroad late. Or are you perhaps lost?'
'I greet you, and maybe you look for welcome. But truth to tell your welcome is doubtful here, Master Gandalf.'
'No, you don't, Sam!'

'But it was at the coming of the Halfling that Isildur's Bane should waken, or so one must read the words.'
'Awake little master! Now at last the hour has come that you have wished for, Frodo.'
'Well? Why must you disturb my rest? Will you give me no peace at all by night or day?'
'I am very fond indeed of it, and of all the dear old Shire; but I think I need a holiday'
'Nay, there was no change of counsel.'
'Alas! if he should die. Would that there were kings in Gondor, as there were once upon a time, they say!'

'Greetings! Where do you come from? You are a stranger in the city!'
'He is indisposed, He is Resting'
'Come not between the Nazgul and his prey! Or he will not slay thee in thy turn.'
'Rest while you can little fool!'
'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?'
'Who are you, and what are you doing in this land?'
'Queer things you do hear these days, to be sure,'
'Almost felt you liked the Forest! That's good! That's uncommonly kind of you!'
'Is there anyone in this rout with authority to treat with me?'
'Give me leave, Master Elrond, first to say more of Gondor, for verily from the land of Gondor I am come.'
'Run away now! You'll get plenty when the time comes!'
