No - I think it comes from "now".

But the word "now" disappeared from the translation in the middle, and then returned at the very end. So I don't know the logic behind it.

And does the Dragon refer to a dragon.

That's not exactly the right question to ask. The speaker is not referring to a specific dragon, but rather dragons in general.

Well, I thought you were in the right conversation, but if you haven't recognized the quote, maybe not...

So, I forgot, but I looked now... And no, I don't think its the right conversation because I was thinking of when Gandalf grabs Sam outside Bag End's window. When Sam talks about seeing Elves, and Mr. Bilbo and Dragons... and that can't be it.

ETA: Edited to clarify which "he" was talking about seeing Elves and Dragons. It was Sam, not Gandalf. Obviously. Still, grammar is important.

PS: Does it look like I need help?

Ah different conversation, found it.

Spoken in The Green Dragon by Sam:

Who invented the stories anyway? Take dragons now.

Here you go:

final translation:
Quote:
We catch SAM. Cross the head of the ORB Tower and save us.


the one from a few earlier:
Quote:
We are caught Sam. , Only the way the Orb tower heads is the way from there - excluding returning us.

Is it Frodo to Sam: ‘We have come to a dead end, Sam,’ said Frodo. ‘If we go on, we shall only come up to that orc-tower, but the only road to take is that road that comes down from it – unless we go back.'

Half brothers of blood, complete brothers of mind becomes me. You are a lie, I will continue. Please make sure that new sorrow does not divide us.
