|Martin Freeman as Blibo in The Hobbit|
“Good morning!” said Bilbo, and he meant it.
“What on earth did I asked him to tea for!”
Where & O where can Gandalf and the dwarves have got to?
“I will give you a name” he said to it, “and I shall call you sting.”
I have no idea at the moment…but I will do my best to think about it
the ElvenKing looked at Bilbo with a new wonder “Bilbo Baggins!” he said “You are more worthy to wear the armour of elf-princes than many that have looked more comely in it”
“Thank you very much I’m sure,” said Bilbo with a bow. “But I don’t think I ought to leave my friends like this, after all we have gone through together. And I promised to wake old Bombur at midnight, too!”
“…I come from under the hill, and under hills and over the hills my paths led. And through the air, I am he that walks unseen.”
“…I’m sure it reflects great credit on your grandfather, but you cannot pretend that you ever made the vast extent of his wealth clear to me. I should want hundreds of years to bring it all up, if I was fifty times as big, and Smaug as tame as a rabbit!”
After that of course the dwarves begged his pardon. “what then do you propose we should do, Mr. Baggins?” Asked Thorin politely.
“Shut the door!” he begged them, “I fear that dragon in my marrow! I like this silence far less than the uproar of last night. Shut the door before it is too late!’
“Hear, hear!” said Bilbo, and accidentally said it aloud “hear what?” they all said turning suddenly towards him, and he was so flustered that he answered “here what I have got to say”
“Escaping goblins to be caught by wolves”
“Drat the bird!” said Bilbo crossly. “I believe he is listening, and I don’t like the look of him.”
Well I don’t know about you but that was rather
hothilarious to me.
“If ever you are passing my way,” said Bilbo, “don’t wait to knock! Tea is at four; but any of you are welcome at any time!”

And you know what? Now I know why the elves gave Bilbo an honorable seat in their final ship, because he sure deserved it! it also made it easier for me to understand everything, the Shire I was surprised to not be the pleasant place I thought it was, even innocent little hobbits can be stubborn and judgmental, to lose one’s respect because of going on an adventure, to deal with gossip spreading, greedy relatives! Come on that’s the world of humans, I mean for God’s sake the man came back to find he is assumed dead, his house to be occupied and he had to buy back most of his own furniture!
“...You are a very fine person, Mr. Baggins, and I am very fond of you; but you are only quite a little fellow in a wide world after all!”
