To the Master of Laketown: [In reply to] Can't Post

APPARITION: "Be lion-mettled, proud, and take no care,
"Who chafes, and frets, or where Bard and his conspirators are,
" The Master of Laketown never shall vanquished be,
" Until great Mirkwood elves have come to Esgaroth.

MASTER: "That'll never happen!

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

That exchange doesn't work at all in the context of the book. Mirkwood raft-elves visited Lake-town on a regular basis. Perhaps the Apparition's last two lines should be:

The Master of Lake-town n'er shall vanguished be,
'til the Halfling has come and gone his fate to greet.

'There are older and fouler things than Orcs in the deep places of the world.' - Gandalf the Grey, The Fellowship of the Ring
