“Halflings!” laughed the rider that stood beside Eomer, “Halflings! But they are only a little people in old songs and children’s tales out of the North. Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?”
“You didn’t think that Halflings were real?” asked Aragorn. “That’s like, super racist, dude. Are elves also imaginary?”
“It’s 3019, I thought we were past this,” muttered Legolas.
Gimli: Tell me, Legolas, why did I come on this Quest? Little did I know where the chief peril lay! Truly Elrond spoke, saying that we could not foresee what we might meet upon our road. Torment in the dark was the danger that I feared, and it did not hold me back. But I would have never come, had I known the danger of light and joy.
Legolas: smh you are such a drama queen. She’s pretty, okay? Calm down a bit.
One of the funniest moments I remember from the book is when the Fellowship is attempting to cross the mountain pass of Caradhras. All of a sudden, the travellers find their path blocked by a heap of snow. Then Legolas picks a very bad moment to be a smartass by suggesting that Gandalf should go in front of them and melt a path in the snow. The wizard, of course, is not amused and replies in his snarkiest, most sarcastic tone:
“If Elves could fly over mountains, they might fetch the Sun to save us”
