Quotes and Lines
“Farewell, Master Burglar. Go back to your books… and your armchair… plant your trees, watch them grow. If more people… valued home above gold… this world would be a merrier… place…” – Thorin Oakenshield
“If you ever pass through Bag End, tea is at four. You are welcome ANY time. Don’t bother knocking!” – Bilbo Baggins
Legolas: I can not go back.
Thranduil: Where will you go?
Legolas: I do not know.
Thranduil: Go to the North. Meet with the Dunedain. There is a young Ranger among them. His father, Arathorn, was a good man. His son may grow to be a great one.
Legolas: What is his name?
Thranduil: He is known in the wild as Strider. His true name, you must discover for yourself.
Bilbo: No, thank you! We don’t want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!
Gandalf: What about very old friends?
Thorin Oakenshield: I am so sorry… that I have lead you to such peril…
Bilbo Baggins: No! I am glad to have shared in your perils, Thorin. Each and every one of them. It is far more than any Baggins deserves!
“You have but one question to answer: How shall this day end?” – Gandalf
“You are changed, Thorin! The Dwarf I met in BagEnd would never have gone back on his word! Would never have doubted the loyalty of his kin!” – Bilbo Baggins
“If you don’t like my burglar, then please, don’t damage him! Return him to me!” – Gandalf
“If I am not mistaken, this is the Halfing who stole the keys to my dungeon right from under the nose of my guards.” – Thranduil
“You are a very fine fellow, Mr Baggins, and I am very fond of you. But you are really just a little fellow, in a wide world.” – Gandalf
“I’m not doing it for you. I know that dwarves can be obstinate and pigheaded and difficult. They’re suspicious and secretive, with the *worst* manners you can possibly imagine. But they are also brave and kind, and loyal to a fault. I’ve grown very fond of them, and I would save them if I can.” – Bilbo Baggins
“Don’t underestimate the evil of gold.” – Gandalf
Thorin Oakenshield: I’m glad you’re here. I wish to part with you in friendship.
Bilbo Baggins: No. You’re not going anywhere, Thorin. You’re going to live.
Thorin Oakenshield: I would take back my words and my deeds at the Gate. You did what only a true friend would do. Forgive me. I was too blind to see it.
