Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl
Pound them up with a thumping pole
And when you’ve finished, if they are whole
Send them down the hall to roll
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!”

Tastes like chicken. [In reply to] Can't Post

I may have this slightly wrong, but I think the Trolls say (not sure which Troll says what :):

"Everything tastes like chicken. Except the chicken--it tastes like fish".

" Well well!", said a voice. "Just look! Bilbo the hobbit on a pony, my dear! Isn't it delicious!"
"Most astonishing wonderful!"

That's basically right and was noted in my post:

I didn't note the "Except the chicken" because I agreed with the transcript as regards that line.

But skep's version did pick up a lot of dialogue that neither Incredible Smaug et al. nor myself caught.

Your efforts are greatly appreciated. [In reply to] Can't Post

However on this (minor) point, I am more convinced than ever (after a second viewing with improved sound quality) that Ori says "Jackson."

I understand that it makes sense for him to have said "jacksie." On the other hand, it also makes sense that they got a little meta-fictional, especially as they were adapting Tolkien (doubly so since they all but eliminated the narrator of the original tale). Certainly they went there when Gandalf couldn't remember the names of the Blue Wizards.

Wow [In reply to] Can't Post

 This thread is amazing. Thanks to IncredibleSmaug for the transcript in the first place. :) And all these little corrections - you'd think people were a little obsessed or something. :)

Here are a few comments I have on these corrections:


Quote
[Bilbo:] “Thranduil would not risk the lives of his kin against the wrath of the dragon. No help came from the elves that day, or any day since.”
IS BILBO PRONOUNCING “wrath” AS “wroth”?

It sounds like wroth, but I believe wrath would be correct (wroth is only an adjective, not a noun - or am I mistaken)? My guess would be that he is saying wrath and it just sounds like wroth.


Quote
REGARDING:
[Bilbo:] “Oh no. No, no! There’s nobody home. Go away, and bother somebody else. There’s far too many dwarves in my dining room as it is. If- if- If this is some clotterd’s idea of a joke, ha ha, I can only say, it is in very poor taste.”
ARE YOU SURE ABOUT “clotterd’s”? I THOUGHT IT WAS “blockhead’s”.

It sounds like clotterd to my ears, but I could be wrong.

[Bilbo:] “Confusticate these dwarves!”
>>>
[Bilbo:] “Bebother and confusticate these dwarves!”
I THINK, BUT THE FIRST TWO WORDS ARE MUMBLED


I think you're right. There's definitely something before confusticate, and bebother is from the book (though I think in the book, the order is reversed).


Quote
>>>
[Thorin:] “Shazara! [not translated onscreen: Silence!] If we have read these signs, do you not think others will have read them too? Rumours have begun to spread. The dragon Smaug has not been seen for 60 years. Eyes look east to the Mountain, assessing, wondering, weighing the risk. Perhaps the vast wealth of our people now lies unprotected. Do we sit back while others claim what is rightfully ours? Or do we seize this chance to take back Erebor? Du Bekâr! Du Bekâr! [not translated onscreen: To arms! To arms!]”



I could be hearing it wrong, but it doesn't sound like Shazara to my ears. It sounds something like atka maybe? (I could be completely and totally wrong - I just saw it again today however and still couldn't hear an "sh" sound).

[Gandalf:] “You’re very helpful, Bofur.”

[Gandalf:] “Ah, very helpful, Bofur.”

I'm leaning towards the first correction. I think he makes a noise, then says "very helpful, Bofur."

It is move on, but it's Thorin who says this, not Dwalin.

I believe it should be "... wielding nothing but an oaken..." (Instead of "by")

Yes, I believe it is Kili who says "we had sixteen" and Fili says "Now there's fourteen."

I'll mention this here, rather than make a thread: An odd response from Bilbo, perhaps? [In reply to] Can't Post

Does anyone else think this is an odd response from Bilbo (highlighted in bold). In context, this takes place during the Unexpected Party scene. None of the Dwarves have yet named Smaug, nor mentioned a dragon, nor spoken about the Quest and/or history of Erebor.


Quote
Oin:Ravens have been seen flying back to the mountain as it was foretold: When the birds of old return to Erebor, the reign of the beast will end.

Bilbo: What beast?”

Bofur: Well that would be a reference to Smaug the Terrible, chiefest and greatest calamity of our age. Airborne fire-breather, teeth like razors, claws like meathooks, extremely fond of precious metals.

Bilbo: Yes, I know what a dragon is.


Why reply like that, when it was he who asked the question in the first place? How did he know Bofur was talking about a dragon, and not some other kind of beast? It's probably just me, but in every viewing this line really annoys me. Unimpressed

I would imagine that the reason people think it is "Jackson" [In reply to] Can't Post

is simply because they are unfamiliar with the colloquial British slang term "jacksie".

Mr Jackson obviously is familiar with it, or it may even have been suggested by Adam Brown himself, (or any of the English actors who would certainly know it!! )
