I know exactly what and where that is - but I think I'd better sit this one out.

Regarding the previous quote, I think it can pass for the same general sentiment as "Oh, nice!" - if you mean it as an exclamation of pleasure about something someone just told you.

Edit: just to bring it to the new page, and save everyone the trouble:

What I do-when I know something.

Okay, if no one else is going to solve it:

"I do - when I know anything."

Gandalf, responding to Bilbo's "But I expect you know best, as usual".

The first part of this is mostly unchanged, the second got the subject changed around:

Quote:
They will not harm you unless I tell you to do so.

So, it should have been “they will not harm you unless I tell them to do so”?

That's a much more accurate translation. Do you have the exact quote?

No; I was just applying your hint.

Is it Beorn?

No books handy but he's talking to Frodo, Sam and Pippin about Grip and Fang, his dogs. Something like "Oh don't mind them, they won't hurt you, unless I tell them to"

Close enough so I'll let it pass. The actual quote is "They won’t harm you - not unless I tell ‘em to".

Your turn!

Don't make me ask Willow to glare at you in a vaguely threatening manner...

Easy one cause the first two I tried hardly changed at all.

This puzzles nasty little underground creatures

No, she hasn't. (Probably because I've been pushy about it: Should I read it to you at night? Want to come to the Tolkien exhibition with me? I'm going again, want to come today? :roll:). But she has read all the riddles in TH a few times, and I think this quote is from that chapter. (using spoiler tags so she doesn't see this tonight)

*We* found it:

Bilbo:
“This’ll puzzle the nasty little underground creature”
