I was watching The Hobbit today with subtitles on (don’t judge, I find some of the quieter background dialogue impossible to hear, but it makes it onto the subtitles).  Anyway, in the scene after the trolls are turned to stone Thorin acknowledges to Gandalf that they are all in one piece but ‘no thanks to your burglar’, to which I always thought Gandalf said ‘he had the nerves to play for time' (and I put the rather strange pronunciation of 'nerves' down to Sir Ian's accent).  Turns out my vocabulary isn't as good as I thought it was.
