Thumbs up Ooooops

Oh my, I'm so sorry Guinevere! You're right, of course. And I checked the quote at least 3 times before posting that answer...

You got the quote and the characters right so the thread is yours.
But, to be exact, these lines were spoken by Farmer Giles to Chrysophylax. So this quote indeed exists twice, though the wording isn't identical (Chrysophylax' words were: Excuse my asking, but were you looking for me, by any chance?).

Please carry on, Guinevere!

I have been wondering if this quote occured in LotR or the Hobbit as well, because for the Minor works we have a separate thread:
Palantir of Fortune Minor works edition
Esty and I would be happy if someone else would join us and revive the thread!

Anyhow, here is a new quote :

"---/ ----/ ----/ ---/ ---/ ----/ ---/, --/ ----/ ----/ ----/ --/ ----/, --/ ------/ --/ --/ ---/ ----/. ---/ --/ --/ ---/ --."

EDIT: I should probably have waited for my answer to be confirmed. I guess I have been over-enthusiastic on this one. Sorry about that, I'll try to behave next time.
