Bilbo went to look at the time and put the kettle on. He thought he was home...

The clothes hanging on the wall in the Troll's cave.

That one took me a bit to find as I kept reading the part before, forgetting about the cave.

Really?! I thought it would be Beorn. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
But alas, it was a dwarf. They seem to be all over this story don't they?
Balin pointed out all that was left of Dale.

What did Bilbo really mean when Gandalf said, 'Yes, you do! If you want to get to the other side. You must either go through or give up your quest. And I am not going to allow you to back out now, Mr. Baggins. I am ashamed of you for thinking of it. You have got to look after these dwarves for me.'

Bilbo was wondering if there was another way to get around Mirkwood. He said...."is there no way round?"

Yay! Hobbit trivia! I know it better than LotR certainly, but that may be because I have read it and heard it read maybe ten times total, (one of the first books I ever heard!) so... Anyway, can I just jump in?

Suilad,

Thank you! So... Balin perhaps? I keep thinking it was him, but it might be Thorin, or Gandalf perhaps, or... Too many characters!

Why did Thorin and company quit lighting "watch fires" in Mirkwood?

Quote:
"Although it was not yet very cold, they tried lighting watch-fires at night, but they soon gave that up. It seemed to bring hundreds of eyes all round them, though the creatures, whatever they were, were careful never to let their bodies show in the little flicker of the flames. Worse still it brought thousands of dark-grey and black moths, some nearly big as your hand, flapping and whirring round their ears. They could not stand that, nor the huge bats, black as top hats, either; so they gave up fires and sat at night and dozed in the enormous uncanny darkness."
I believe that is the answer you are looking for.

Thank you, and sorry I took so long to post this question.

Very easy, as I'm quite drained of ideas: Which dwarf alerted the trolls to the presense of the reast of the dwarves?

I think tha answer is Balin.

Right in the middle of the fight up came Balin.....No sooner did Tom see Balin come into the light than he gave an awful howl.
This is all after the trolls caght Bilbo and were fighting, but the first dwarve was Balin.
