From FOTR?

PS: To interested folks, Irika read the Hobbit - not the whole thing, but from Riddles chapter to the end (she can't let go of a book).

"Here is the last parting of our ways," said Faramir. "If you take my counsel, you will not turn eastward yet."

Just like in the movies. :D

Is that the Théoden line I quoted in the other thread the other day?

My brain ain't what it used to be. Especially since the bout of Transient Global Amnesia a year ago.

Well, since Frelga had the answer before I even posted the question, I'd say she's next.

I would say that is probably some unidentified ruffians to the hobbits who moved the barrier aside and let them into a trap: ‘Now run home to bed before you’re whipped.’

For one thing, he had not heard them suck through his mouth.

(I removed the "said _______" from the middle of this sentence, in order to avoid giving away the speaker.)

Does the original start with "For one thing" or something similar?

The words didn't change all that much, but it went from first person to third person, and the action that the person hadn't heard about switched directions.

Ah wait I think I know this one. Its someone talking about the Hobbits. "I had not heard that they breathe smoke from their mouths" or something. Either Merry or Pippin replies that it was Tobold Hornblower who introduced the art of smoking. Is it Théoden in Flotsam and Jetsam?
