An event in the aftermath of the Battle of the Morannon; see that entry for an overview:
'Nor shall I forget finding you [Pippin] on the hill of the last battle. But for Gimli the Dwarf you would have been lost then. But at least I know now the look of a hobbit's foot, though it be all that can be seen under a heap of bodies. And when I heaved that great carcase off you, I made sure you were dead. I could have torn out my beard.'
