And now, moments from S. Morgenstern's 'The Hobbit',

as adapted for the big screen by William Goldman.*

Scene: the western edge of Mirkwood
Gandalf (waving a handkerchief): Bye-bye, Bilbo! Have fun storming the mountain!

And this swoon-worthy nugget:
"Hello, my name is Thorin Oakenshield. You killed my father; prepare to die."

And who can forget this classic:
Tauriel: What about the O.O.U.S.es?
Kili: Orcs of Unusual Size? I don't believe they exist.

What are your favorite moments from this gem of a tale?

Chapter 1: An Unexpected Party

is followed by Chapter 2: The Shire, which describes, in detail Bilbo's genealogy and amusing anecdotes of his ancestors and cousins on both sides, also it contains letters written from the Mayor to various Bagginses over the generations, and the political ramifications of the discovery of pipeweed on Shire relations with Bree. This chapter, in its entirety, is cut from William Goldman's 'good bits' version.

And of course, we can't forget this line of Thorin's to Bilbo: "I've hired you to burgle a dragon hoard. It's a prestigious line of work with a long and glorious tradition."

Azog after the dwarves start to lose their grips on the trees and are rescued by eagles. "They didn't fall? Inconceivable!"

The Mayor of Laketown giving a speech as Thorin's company prepare to leave. "Dwagons. Dwagons aww what bwing us togevver today."

Inferno.

Good night, tOR.Nados. Good work. Sleep well. I'll most likely delete you in the morning.

Oh here I go...

 Smaug: You've beaten the pale Orc, which means you're exceptionally strong, so you could've put the arkenstone in your own pocket trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the goblet in front of you. But, you've also bested Thranduil, which means you must've studied, and in studying you must've learned that hobbit is mortal, so you would've put the Arkenstone as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the goblet in front of me........

I have more!

Narrator: "Get him a pony", of course what he really ment was, I love you.

Azog to Yazneg: Do you want me to send you back to where you were - unemployed in Dunland?!

Master of Lake Town to Thorin and Company: Have fun storming Erebor!

Radagast on the Necromancer: It just so happens that Sauron here is only mostly dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

That classic scene with Thorin and Bilbo....

THORIN: If you find the Arkenstone, bring it to me at once.

BILBO (fingering the Arkenstone hidden inside his cloak): I swear it will be done.

Scene: The Dwarves have been caught by Thranduil's guard and are stuck in their cells, killing time.

Fili: That Thranduil, he can *fuss*.
Kili: Fuss, fuss... I think he likes to scream at *us*.
Fili: Probably he lacks in *charm*.
Kili: A chuckle from him would cause *alarm*.
Fili: He's also known as *grumpy-pants*.
Kili: He probably needs a *mood transplant*.
Guard: Enough of that.
Fili: Kili, why do you think he wears a crown with *berries*?
Kili: To cause laughter from his *adversaries*.
Guard: No more rhymes now, I mean it!
Kili: Anybody want a peanut?
Guard: Gaaaahhh!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

You keep using that word "burglar". I do not think it means what you think it means.//

Smarts

Bilbo: I miss my books.

Ori: There are other things to read than print and the youngest dwarf is displeased with you and is thinking of going home.

True story: I was at concert where Mandy Patinkin was performing a one man show. He was 2 songs into the concert when he forgot the lyrics to his number. He apologized saying, "I have been on the road so long and have done so many concerts at this point I've forgotten my name." At which point some one in the audience yelled out "Your name is Inigo Montoya." That brought the house down.

Can I just take a moment to say

...that I love this thread and everybody who has participated in it? Laugh Seriously, this is amazing. It makes me want to read the book again... Sadly, I don't have a copy, I have to go to the library to get it. Sooo glad a friend recommended 'The Princess Bride' to me - and also so glad to see that everything can be related to Tolkien! I love fandom crossovers. They're always so much fun. Wink

Are there going to be any threats to/from Smaug about, "To the pain?"

"I had forgotten that. It is hard to be sure of anything among so many marvels. The world is all grown strange. Elf and Dwarf in company walk in our daily fields; and folk speak with the Lady of the Wood and yet live; and the Sword comes back to war that was broken in the long ages ere the fathers of our fathers rode into the Mark! How shall a man judge what to do in such times?"

"As he ever has judged. Good and ill have not changed since yesteryear; nor are they one thing among Elves and Dwarves and another among Men. It is a man's part to discern them, as much in the Golden Wood as in his own house."

Smaug: 'To the pain? I'm not

familiar with that expression.'
Bard: Then let me explain it to you. 'To the pain' means the first thing you will lose will be your feet, all four of them. Then your wings, at the shoulders. No more flying for you. Next will be your left eye...
Smaug: Followed by my right, and then my nose, I suppose.
Bard: Wrong! Your nose you keep, and I'll tell you why: So that every whiff of revulsion, every scent of mockery at the sight of your pitiful form, will be yours to cherish. Every merchant who wafts a bit of gold about at your approach and calls 'Eru has spared us from that thing!' will reverberate in you, courtesy of your perfect nose. That is what 'to the pain' means. It means that I leave you to live in anguish, in humiliation, in freakish misery until you can stand it no more.
Smaug: Really?
Bard (nocks his arrow and lets it fly, straight to Smaug's unguarded spot): Nah. I'm more of an 'Indiana Jones' type.

Asked and answered - glad you've enjoyed it!
