  1. Good job everyone! This was a really tricky (and fun!) quote game. :)

  2. ahem. Well......I am ashamed. :D I Googled the quotes after submitting my answer, so I've been kicking myself ever since. *sigh* I'm just gonna have to read the books all the way through together, instead of putting a year between FOTR and TT.

    1. How recently you've read/seen them definitely makes a difference! And I did try to find some more obscure ones as well as some easy ones.

    2. Some of them were definitely head-scratchers! Thanks for this... it was fun!

  3. Well, I did amazing:) I'm off to memorize more Tolkien quotes;)

    1. Lol. Quotes are hard, though! What strikes one person as awesome and important leaves another cold.
