Or one of the discussions between Bilbo and Frodo in Rivendell?

Gandalf, to everyone: "And then alas! I let the matter rest, waiting and watching only, as we have too often done."

Did this conversation take place in a pub called The Ivy Bush in Bywater?

No.

Hint: note that the whole sentence is the quote.

This is a long shot, but:

Well, I think Mr. Gamgee is a bit frustrated with his future bride for saying that he wasted a year, don't you?


ETA: I suppose I should give the quote. Is it Sam to Frodo (quoting himself talking to Rosie): '“Wasted?” I says. “I wouldn’t call it that.” '

V is, of course, correct.

And I still can’t picture Sam as a frustrated lover. ;)

Arguably, he is doubly frustrated, being 'torn in two'. But that is a conversation for another time and place.

You're on the right track, but still quite a bit earlier.
