All the time! [In reply to] Can't Post

I use "Fool of a Took!" all the time in place of a naughty word. It works great. And, even though it isn't useed in the movie or book I use "Helm's Deep!!!" as a very strong curse word esprecially if I get wet or splash something on myself. I also quote Gollum quite a bit, "My Precious" that sort of thing. And if someone says something about potatoes I say, "What's taters, precious?"

I've used: [In reply to] Can't Post

po-tay-toes boil 'em, mash 'em, stick 'em in a stew

I'm going on an adventure!

I'm not likely to grow much, except sideways

You shall not pass

don't be hasty

*singing* The road goes ever on and on

...and many more that I can't recall at the moment.

Of course I cite lines from it! [In reply to] Can't Post

Most of them are from Gollum, actually. Tongue

When someone asks me where something is, I sometimes say, "Down there." and it always sounds like Faramir. Heart
I love to say, when my mother is cooking potatoes in the evening, "Taters, precious!"
When something goes wrong, I suddenly yell out, "Mister Gandalf!" like Dori.
And ever since I saw the Taking The Hobbits to Isengard remix on YouTube, I can't take the line seriously now - I start singing randomly, "They are taking the Hobbits to Isengard gar-gar-gar-gar-gard." Laugh

The other ones I say are catch-phrases from the films, I guess:
"Ah, no! What's it doing!?"
"That was good, let's get another one!"
"Give us a chance precious, give us a chance!"
"Well, that could have been worse."
"Oooh, I get it - don't be hasty!"

I think my list is endless, as I overreact the lines practically 24/7.

......A Willing Heart.
I can ask no more than that."

WIN [In reply to] Can't Post

Pure win. Laugh Laugh Laugh Unfortunately, I was reading this in the library and had to stifle my laughter, when all I really wanted to do was roll on the floor and cackle like a lunatic. I'm defintely going to have to use this one on my younger brothers in the near future.

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

Waste of a good apple! [In reply to] Can't Post

Struck by lightning! Struck by Lightning!

The Eagles are coming!

The Road goes ever on and on, down from the door where it began...

If I grew apples like that, I'd call myself a gardener!

Did I so? (Faramir speaking with Sam)

You've shown your quality, the very highest.

I also like to run through the rain waving my arms over my head. I'm not very successful, but I keep trying :D

Lines I hope +not + to need include "You cannot offer me this ring!" // [In reply to] Can't Post


Disclaimers: The words of noWizardme may stand on their heads! I'm often wrong about things, and its fun to be taught more....

"nowimė I am in the West, Furincurunir to the Dwarves (or at least, to their best friend) and by other names in other lands. Mostly they just say 'Oh no it's him - look busy!' "
Or "Hold off! unhand me, grey-beard loon!"
