To bring it to the new page:

Quote:
Old Tuk lives there every year and says his room is old and embarrassing.


Is another hint needed?

So, is it during Bilbo's speech on his 131st Bday?

Did you mean his 111th birthday? If so, then the quote was a few years later.

Oh, crap yes. 111th. Ok, but the quote relates to Bilbo surpassing the Old Took in age?

No, Bilbo wasn't present when it was spoken.

Edit: I just realized that if you're referring to Bilbo surpassing the Old Took, then you're right about it being the 131st birthday, and therefore, the quote was spoken a few years earlier.

But your first response was correct, because I did mean the 111th Party, but got confused.

In any case, we've narrowed it down to twenty years :D

Any more hints needed to narrow it down to even fewer years?

I would suggest giving the volume, cause I was thinking entirely the wrong place.

Even more precise: it's from Book III (which eliminates Frodo and Sam).

Ok; so either Merry or Pippin, and before Isengard....so likely in Fangorn.

I'll be back

Pippin to Merry:

"They say the Old Took lived in it year after year, while he and the old room got older and shabbier together - and it has never been changed since he died, a century ago."

Very close to the original:

Yes, certainly. Faster is better. Don't be too kind!
