No title self-referentiality Can't Post

This is a bit of a petty observation, but I thought I'd point it out because it is fairly interesting (to me at least).

In many movies, including all of the LotR, a character will reference the title of the movie at some point in the story.

"...there is only one LORD OF THE RINGS only one who can bend it to his will"

"...so be it, you shall be THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING"

"... to stand against the might of Sauron and Saruman, in the union of THE TWO TOWERS"

"...authority is not given to you to deny THE RETURN OF THE KING"

I just found it interesting that Thorin says "so this is THE HOBBIT" but no-one at any point says "AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY" or did I miss it?

Maybe in the EEs? Where do you think it could fit in?
