Oh, for Gandalf's sake. Here's the new quote:

Quote:
Your head is too short for your feet!

Sam at Amon Hen? Something like "Whoa there Sam, your legs are too short so use your head"? (From memory, so may not be accurate...)

Hm. Gollum said "More haste, less speed," unless it was the other way round.

This brings up a protocol question we should settle for future quotes: if Gollum is the speaker and someone asks "is it a hobbit", should the answer be yes?

In the past I've said "former hobbit", but that just gives it away.

Gollum is one of a kind, so saying no is not exactly untrue. On the other hand, he's one of a kind, so "former" or "kinda" Hobbit is more true. I don't know, but it's not like delaying the correct guess is the point of the game.
