'Queer things you do hear these days, to be sure.'
'Yes,' ... 'I am very fond of it, and of all the dear old Shire; but I think I need a holiday.'
'So that is what became of the Ring!' ... 'We believed that it perished from the world in the ruin of his first realm. Isildur took it! That is tidings indeed.'
'Nay! Not Elves,' ... 'Elves do not walk in Ithilien these days. And Elves are wondrous fair to look upon, or so 'tis said.'
'But that can only mean going into the Old Forest!' ... 'You can't be thinking of doing that! It is quite as dangerous as Black Riders!'
'You are Peregrin the Halfling?' ... 'I am told that you have been sworn to the service of the Lord and of the City. Welcome!'
'Ach, sss! Cautious, my precious! We musstn't risk our neck, musst we, precious? No precious- gollum!'...'We hate it,'...'Nassty shivery light it is- it hurts our eyes!'
'He is indisposed,' ... 'He is resting.'
'Do you wonder at that, Ring-bearer?' ... 'He is ancient in years now, according to his kind; and he awaits you, for he will not again make any long journey save one.'
'You speak justly, lord,'...'It is not yet five since the tidings came that Théodred your son was slain on the West Marches. Why indeed should we welcome you, Master Stormcrow?'
'Only one thing is clear to me,' ... 'and that is that you are doing exceedingly well out of it. I insist on seeing the will.'
'No, you don't, Sam!' ... 'It is good for him. He's got nothing except what he ordered us to pack. He'll feel the weight less when he's walked off some of his own.'
'Run away now!' ... 'You will get plenty when the time comes!'
'Alas, alas!' ... 'The tidings that I was sent to bring must now be told. Only here have I learned how evil they may seem to this company. Sméagol has escaped.
'Has he gone?'
'Hullo, Sam!' ... 'Where've you been? They said you were dead; but I've been expecting you since the Spring. You haven't hurried, have you?'
'Ha, hmm, let us go for a walk!'...'I am (name), that is (name) in your language. They have called me that ever since I said yes to an elder Ent before he finished the question.'
'I would bear you,' ... 'whither you will, even were you made of stone.'
QuoteCharacter
'Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.'
'Old fool!' ... 'Old fool! This is my hour. Do you know not Death when you see it? Die now and curse in vain!'
'I am called (name),' ... 'I am very pleased to meet you, Master- Underhill, if old Butterbur got your name right.'
'Ferthu Théoden hál!' ... 'Receive now this cup and drink in happy hour. Health be with thee at thy going and coming!'
'Now let the song begin! Let us sing together... Old Tom Bombadil and the River-Daughter!'
'Dark indeed is the hour,' ... 'and at such times you are wont to come, Mithrandir. It has been told to me that you bring with you one who saw my son die. Is this he?'
'Nay, there was no change of counsel,' ... 'Gandalf the Grey set out with the Company, but I cannot see him from afar, unless he comes within the fences of Lothlorien.'
'I greet you,'...'and maybe you look for welcome. But truth to tell your welcome is doubtful here, Master Gandalf. Why should I welcome you, Gandalf Stormcrow? Tell me that.'
'I am the doorward of Théoden,' ... '(name) is my name. Here I must bid you lay aside your weapons before you enter.'
'No, father of Horse-men,' ... 'we fight not. Hunt only. Kill gorgûn in woods, hate orc-folk. We help as we can. Wild Men have long ears and long eyes; know all paths.'
'Who are you, and what are you doing in this land?'
'That is a very interesting remark,' ... 'I may have to report that. The prisoners are NOT to be searched or plundered: those are my orders.'
'Hola! Gorbag! What are you doing up here? Had enough of war already?'
'Is there anyone in this rout with authority to treat with me?' ... 'Or indeed with wit to understand me?' ... 'Why, any brigand of the hills can show as good a following!'
'Hey dol! merry dol! ring a dong dill! Ring a dong! hop along! fal lal the willow! (name) Bom, jolly (name), (name)!'
'Well,' ... 'Why must you disturb my rest? Will you give no peace at all by light or day?'
'Almost felt you liked the Forest! That's good!' ... 'Turn around and let me have a look at your faces. I almost feel that I dislike you both, but do not let us be hasty.'
'Awake, little master!' ... 'Now at last the hour has come that you have wished for, Frodo.'
