Not quite, but very close. Yes to Pippin, not quite yes to Minas Tirith (unless we are talking metropolitan areas).

Ah, okay. I thought it might be during the conversation with Bergil and his yobbo friends, but it might be this instead:

"Man! Indeed not! I am a hobbit and no more valiant than I am a man, save perhaps now and again by necessity."

(after Gandalf introduced him as a man to Ingold)

I had to leave off the first two words of the original quote, because TranslationParty just changed the whole thing to "Maybe you should".

When I lopped off the first two words, it came up with this:

Quote:
You must immediately give me a letter and explain the reason why you are not sending it.

Related to Gandalf’s letter left in Bree?

So it should be easy to narrow down the quote...

Frodo to Mr. Butterbur

"It is, and you had better give me that letter at once and explain why you never sent it"

Ok, from memory its something like "Hill! Yes, that was it. What a small word for something that has stood here since this part of the world was formed"

What a “hasty word”; after all, it is Treebeard. :)

Your turn.

Be quick. ;) (there’s some kids game that goes like this right: your turn, be quick, something, something)

Translation Party is really not working well:

YOU SAID:

It is difficult not to slip in talking to a dragon

INTO JAPANESE

しばしば言われるように、新しい環境に適応するのは難しい。

BACK INTO ENGLISH

As is often said, it is difficult to adjust yourself to a new environment.

Ok, here's one that is at least somewhat recognisable.

Someone I talked about. A wonderful person
