Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Treebeard turns away from the Entmoot temporarily to tell Merry and Pippin that it has been decided they are not orcs. Merry asks if they have made a decision regarding Saruman, to which Treebeard says "Don't be hasty".

Hasty? Our friends are out there. They need our help.
Merry to Treebeard

Treebeard gently explains to Merry that it takes a lot of time to say anything in Old Entish and that Ents tend not to use the language unless it is worth the time and effort to do so.
