It's a Desolation of Smaug PANTS thread!

We're in the midst of an ice storm here, and since my kids are home from school making merry like a couple of Hobbit book Elves and I won't get any work done, I say let's have some fun! (As long as the power holds out, anyway...)


In case you're wondering, a pants thread is where we pick a line from the movie and substitute the word pants for a key noun, like so:

His pants were running low when Girion made his last stand.



You might need to add a couple of lines for context:

I found something in the Goblin tunnels.

Found what? What did you find?

My pants.

Good. You'll need them.


If you need some help with lines from the movie, check out this transcript kindly provided by a TORn member. (Sorry, can't remember who, but thank you!)


Here are a few more to start us out:




If you speak of this to anyone, I'll rip your pants off.


You would take nothing from me, Dwarf. I laid low your pants of old. I instilled terror in the trousers of men.


Have fun!

Gandalf: Your pants...someone wants you naked...

If your father has his way, we will do nothing.

We will hide within our walls,
Live our lives away from the light,
And let our pants descend.

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

I offer you my pants

Thranduil: I offer you my pants
Thorin (slight smile): I am listening

……and later

Elf guard: Say what you like about our ill-tempered king, but he has excellent taste in pants. Come Elros, try them.

….and later still

Bard: I know where these pants came from.
Thorin: What of it?
Bard: I don't know what business you had with the elves, but I don't think it ended well.

oh dear, we've got six inches of snow with ice on top - this could go on all day Smile

Beorn and his distaste for pants

"These lands are crawling with Orcs, their numbers are growing and you are on foot. You will never reach the forest alive. I don't like dwarves, they're greedy and blind, blind to the lives of those they deem less than their own.

But pants I hate more."


Who can blame the guy?

Gandalf: This is not the Greenwood of old, the very air of the forest is heavy with illusion that will seek to enter your pants and lead you astray.

Bilbo: Lead us astray? What does that mean?

Two can play at this game! *chuckles wickedly*

GANDALF: "And I would say the same to you. Take back your pants."

GANDALF: "One of them was carrying a message. It is Black Speech. Promise of Payment."
THORIN: "For what?"
GANDALF: "Your pants."

BILBO: "There is something else out there."
GANDALF: "What pants did it take? Like poka dots?"
BILBO: "Ye.... y-yes. But the spots were bigger, much bigger!"
(.....*standing twiddling thumbs* sorry Mister Gandalf...)

AZOG: [subtitle: "You promised me his pants!"]

OIN: "We've lost the pants!"

THORIN: "I would not trust Thranduil, the great king, to honor his word should the end of all days be upon us! You lack all underwear! I have seen the way you treat your pants...!

BARD: "You have no right, no right to own those pants."
THORIN: "I have the only right."

BILBO: "I merely wanted to gaze upon your pants, to see if they really were as great as the old tales say. I did not believe them."
SMAUG: "And do you now?!!!"
BILBO: "Truly, the tales and songs fall utterly short of your underwear, O Smaug the Stupendous."


Whoa, I think I overdid the game! Laugh I'm just gonna stop there.

..The Lord of Silver Fountains
.....The King of Carven Stone
..The King Under the Mountain
.......Shall come into his own

..And the bells will ring in gladness

I can't believe there's not more Smaug ones. Well, time for me to fill the gap!: "You care about the pants, do you? Good. Then you can watch them burn."

Sigrid: "Da... why are there dwarves climbing out of our pants?"
Tilda: "Will the pants bring us good luck?"
--
Thorin: "You took our money. Where are the pants?"

"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."
