You are correct, I found it in [UT] near the bottom of page 155 in the Appendix to the 'Narn I Hîn' section, once I knew it was Gwindor.
Where, according to Pippin, was found the best beer in the Eastfarthing?
I believe Pippin said that on their leisurely jaunt to Frodo's new house, and he was speaking of an inn named The Golden Perch.
That he did, Turin's turn again.
Who said "It is difficult with these evil folk to know they are in league, and when they are cheating one another."?
Merry, about the three groups of Orcs who captured himself and Pippin?
Nope, but it is a member of the Fellowship.
Must be Aragorn, but I don't remember where he was when he said it or to whom he said it.
Yeah, it was Aragorn when Merry and Pippin are describing their capture and leisurely jaunt across Rohan. The quote itself is referring to Aragorn's thoughts on whether the orcish man in Bree was aiding the nazgul or Saruman.
Who said, 'Where the other four may be, I do not know.'?
Yup, he was talking about the whereabouts of the Nazgul as he was escorting Aragorn and the four hobbits to the Ford of Bruinen. Turin's turn.
Who said: "He knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless--before the Dark Lord came from the Outside."?
Well, I suspect it might be Tom Bombadil, but it also could have been Treebeard. So I'll go with Tommy Bombadillo the eldest of all.
it was goldberry referring to tom bombadil
i don't know if my guess is right...
Actually it was
Tom Bombadil in the last part of his in answer to Frodo's question, 'Who are you, Master?', found in LotR,
Book 1, Chapter VII, 'In the House of Tom Bombadil.'
Who said: 'The hands of the king are the hands of a healer'?
Correct Thinker, your turn.
who said: "Dark are her words"
i am not good at questioning....
Legolas said them after Gandalf relayed Galadriel's warning to Legolas 'to beware the sea'.
That was a hard question and I had to spend some time in 'The Two Towers' to find the answer as there wasn't enough in the question to jog my memory.
yes your turn Grondy (sorry about the quote)
Where would one find the following sentence?
Back swept the great birds that were with him, and down they came like huge black shadows.
The Silmarillion? That's about as specific as I can get, even with a guess.
: Shrivel and scorch! A fizzling torch
I still haven't that foggiest. I for one give up, I leave it to anyone else to take a swing at it.
Final hint: Fifteen birds in five firtrees.
Ah, then that would be the part in The Hobbit when Gandalf and co. get rescued from the Goblins and Wargs by the Eagles.
Yup, the chapter entitled 'Out of the Frying Pan into the Fire', so Turin gets to ask the next one.
Who said "...for men in these days are slow to believe that a captain can be wise and learned in the scrolls of lore and song, as he is, and yet a man of hardihood and swift judgment in the field"?
Bonus Question Who is he/she speaking of?
Off the top of my head it might be Beregond to Pippin about Faramir?
'The man shivered at the mention of his master, and put a foot in the water; but he drew back. "I cannot swim," he said.' Who was telling the story; and for extra credit, who the man and who was his master?
I think it was Pippin, but he was definitely speaking of Grima and his master Theoden.
Yup, Pippin was recounting his and Merry's adventure to Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas as they ate the bounty requisitioned from Saruman's flooded storeroom.
To which two persons did Gandalf say "Think what might have been. Dragon-fire and savage swords in Eriador, night in Rivendell. There might be no Queen in Gondor. We might now hope to return from the victory here only to ruin and ash. But that has been averted--because I met Thorin Oakenshield one evening on the edge of Bree. A chance-meeting, as we say in Middle-earth" ?
Frodo and Gimli; though there are some fragments of text that say Merry and Pippin were also there. I found the words in 'The Quest for Erebor' in UT, Part 3, Section III.
Correct, but you needed not to look further than LotR. This quote is found on the third to last page in Appendix A.
I had not thought to look there, but I knew it was in probably in UT.
Who said and to whom, 'Began well anyway. I reckon we crossed half the distance before we stopped. One more day will do it.'
I can't think of anywhere someone said that, but judging by the idioms I'd guess it was Sam.
"Don't be a fool, Sam Gamgee," came an answer in his own voice. (LoTR, J.R.R.Tolkien)
Turin is right. It is Sam. Right?
Yup, is was Sam to Sam and he must have been half-crazy, for like me, he also answered himself.
During this conversation between Sam and himself, Frodo was either asleep, or 'out of it'; and Gollum was lurking somewhere in the background.
As you each got half of it right, either of you may pose the next quote.
Who said "The road must be trod, but it is very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it"?
Neither. Think more lordly.
I still haven't looked it up, but is it Aragorn concerning the 'Paths of the Dead'?
Nope. It isn't a part of the Fellowship.

No, it's in book two of LotR.
