Why doesn't Legolas ever run out of arrows?

He's always seen having like 15 arrows in his back every damn time. Whats up with that?

This will be answered in ROTK, thanks to a surprise cameo by Julie Andrews:
Spoiler:
Legolas's quiver was given to him by none other than Mary Poppins!

They just chose not to show Legolas pulling them from corpses after he used them, that's all.

It's been awhile since I've read the book, but I vaguely recall this coming up around FOTR's release, and someone quoted from the book about Legolas doing this very thing.

Yeah, the books touch on a couple of instances where he is picking them up and collecting them.

He's got a Quiver of Holding +4. Plus, he's an elf, so he has bonuses to his... oh, forget it, I'm geeking myself out.

Before a fight, he goes up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, Start.

Presto! Unlimited weapons and life.
