Book III, Chapter 9: His Spare Pipe

Legolas: "So, care to fill in some blanks?"

Gimli: "Food first - it's gone lunch-time."

(They FIND some FOOD, Pippin TELLS them about Ents and Merry LENDS Gimli his spare PIPE and Gimli gets OVER-EXCITED.)

Gimli: "Marry me!"

Legolas: "So, what happened with you two?"

(For the first part of their story, read
A very long-winded story.)

Merry: "...We waited for the Orcs to leave, then the Ents broke the door down, destroyed everything except the Tower. Then Gandalf turned up, chatted to Treebeard and left. Oh, and Wormtongue put in an appearance. Other than that, we just found some pipe-weed from the Shire."

Aragorn: "Interesting..."

Book II, Chapter 3: He Takes Full Advantage

(Elrond FORMS the Company of the RING; Aragorn SAYS he's COMING too and Frodo is overly EXCITED by the NEWS [don't ask].)

Aragorn: "Boromir's also coming. He's cool."

(Merry and Pippin also TAG along. Aragorn gets a nice new SWORD; Frodo gets STING and a MITHRIL shirt. Before they LEAVE Rivendell, Elrond and Gimli take the OPPORTUNITY to swap PROVERBS. On the way, they use a lot of DWARVEN place names and Aragorn gets PARANOID. Eventually, they TRUDGE up a large MOUNTAIN and get STUCK in a snowstorm, which gives Legolas the chance to SHOW-OFF. He takes full ADVANTAGE and then RUBS it in. The Company TRUDGE back down the MOUNTAIN.)
