Recontextualizing moments from Lord of the Rings for use in The Hobbit Can't Post

I know this might sound a little strange, BUT PJ and Philippa and Fran are known to re-contextualize, remix and all-together wholesale use moments, lines, etc. from Tolkien's text and re-appropriate them in different situations and characters (description of the Grey Havens, the lines about Eowyn, Tom Bombadil's lines to Old Man Willow, etc.).

They are very much in the mind of, "It's not importent who says them, but that someone says it," and it got me thinking, do you think they will take any moments, lines, from the Lord of the Rings and use them in The Hobbit films in some fashion?

What do you think?

"The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair; and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater."-J.R.R. Tolkien

"Thanks for the money!" -George Lucas
