Title: What'd they say?? - Misheard Lines

In the movie did you have any place where you stopped and say "What did they say??"

I don't think that I had one here. Did you??

During Theodred Burial scene, I had a missheard line.

Gandalf says "his spirit is strong, he will find his way to the Hall of his fathers."

I thought he said - he will find his way to the hall of Valhalla." Which wouldn't be too far off, considering who the Rohirric were modeled after.

Ah yes that would have made sense, though I doubt his spirit would be at home with the Norse Gods.
There were a few lines I misheard:

Eowyn: "Now the Wild Men are moving through the westfold burning as they go, Rick, Cot and Tree,"

I kept hearing Rick Cotton Tree :confused

Yeah, I think many people thought that was a proper name.

I guess this would go under misheard lines, and its a rather funny one actually.
If you listen really carefully in the FOTR movie, when the hobbits and are hiding under the tree, and the horse stops, right after it paws the ground, a snort they put in there sounds like the horse is saying "Hiiiiiii"! Its really funny, and all my friends crack up when they hear it! I suggest you take a look next time you watch the movie. It's very amusing!! :lol: :D

In TTT I can't actually remember if I ever heard anything I couldn't understand, though the rick, cot and tree line I actually was never able to understand. And a very little one, when Theoden is still under the power of Saruman, he keeps whipsering under his breath "Grima" but I though he was saying "Eomer" at one time. I bet there's more... I haven't watched TTT in a long while though.

Ahh I remember another line I am SURE I MUST have misheard.
In Helm's deep when Legolas shot down that ladder full of Uruk-Hai, as it went crashing down I swear I heard an Uruk cry; "What the H***!"
Listen for that next time, I'm sure it must have been something else as that kind of vocab would be inappropriate to use in Middle-Earth.

Maybe it was a foul cry in the Black Speech! :P

When watching FOTR when Gimli is in the mines of Moria and he's telling Legolas about the "fabled hospitality of the dwarves" He mentions food and says,
"Malt beer! Ripe meat of the bone!"
and until I did sub-titles I thought he said
"Malt peel...."

I was always like, whats malt peel?
