Ok, um, Balin
...this is hilarious, here we are, a Tolkien website, many of us are quite knowledged in Tolkien lore, and yet none of us can figure out who said a certain line, except of course Grondy... almost sad lol
It is amusing, but of course we could find out easily enough... *Itches to flick through The Hobbit* Let's make this interesting... One big Pseudo Silmaril for the peron who guesses right...

What did ’omer and ’owyn give Merry as a farewell present

What name was given to the greater Orcs who had no fear of sunlight
"We are the mighty Uruk-hai! We fear no sun!"
I dimly remember something like that in the movie.
'What of the dawn?' they jeered. 'We are the Uruk-hai: we do not stop the fight for night or day, for fair weather or for storm. We come to kill, by sun or moon. What of the dawn?'
Fieonw’ gets the Pseudo-Silmaril.
Which member of the Court of Rohan secretly served Saruman
It was that Grima Wormtongue... The snake in horse's clothing?
"Cold be hand and heart and bone,

As for the other question... I'll guess Faramir. Mmmm... Faramir....
Who said, 'I don't need your service, thank you, but I expect you need mine.'
What color were the flutterbys that Bibo saw above the roof of Mirkwood
Pity I didn't see the Giles of Ham question earlier, I knew the answer to that. I couldn't get on on the 18th because the lag was really bad, there were 1600 people online, or so the meter said.
Whose ship was called Alcarondas
Ar-Pharazon the Great, last king of Numenor ere it was destroyed. That was his flag-ship, on which he set sail into the West, and saught to claim the Blessed Land for his own, being deceived by Sauron.
That is without looking it up, too!
