Well, Bilbo did say it but not at that point. Go ahead with the next quote anyway.

My apologies. This thread is long, and the Hobbit only a short story (compared to some others of the same authorship, that is). You've got it right, by the way

Sorry all I didn't get a notice that this had been replied to. New quote:

Quote:
I wish
That's a little vague so as a clue it is something that one character in particualr says frequently.

Bilbo says it quite frequently. One example is "I wish Thorin were living, but I am glad we parted in kindness."

This is Bilbo to Thorin in Inside Information outlining what they should do now that Bilbo has stolen the great two-handled cup from Smaug's hoard and and the dragon has chased them back into the tunnel:

Quote:
'Well, if you really want my advice, I should say we can do nothing but stay where we are. By day we can no doubt creep out safely enough to take the air. Perhaps before long one or two could be chosen to go back to the store by the river and replenish our supplies. But in the meanwhile everyone ought to be well inside the tunnel by night.

'Now I will make you an offer. I have got my ring and will creep down this very noon - then, if ever, Smaug ought to be napping - and see what he is up to. Perhaps something will turn up. "Every worm has his weak spot," as my father used to say, though I am sure it was not from personal experience.'

Choosing a quote is difficult - this thread is so long now - and I've only read the book once - a very long time ago.

Quote:
‘But share and share alike!’

Yes, Kath, that's correct - it's from the last chapter The Last Stage.

Your turn.

Found it at last, took long enough!

Quote:
"Lovely titles!" sneered the dragon, "But lucky number don't always come off."
And so of course it was Smaug to Bilbo.
