FIGWIT

The line "Frodo is great, who is that" is something that was popularized a little while after fellowship came out. I don't remember the details exactly, but it started out as a quote from a girl watching fellowship, during the council of elrond, who said "frodo is gre... WHO IS THAT!" She was apparently struck by the good looks of one of the elves present at the council, who turned out to be none other than one half of the incredible duo of Flight of the Conchords, Bret McKenzie. Since the elf didn't have a name yet they simply abbreviated Frodo is great who is that in to FIGWIT. I've heard that there's all sorts of fan fiction about him and stuff. Pretty funny.

Actually here's some great background on it: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/figwit
