Placement of the Bilbo/Gandalf Old Took party flashback in the EE? Can't Post

Apologies if there's already been discussion on this, but I was thinking about where this scene might go in the extended edition. I think it may follow the shot of the window of Bag End, just after Gandalf says 'It's out there!'. The transition to Bilbo protesting that he can't just go running off into the blue always strikes me as a little odd in the TC, as though he's a little rattled by something. Gandalf prompting Bilbo's memory of his more adventurous side might be the catalyst for this.

I know some people might place it in the 'Good morning' exchange, but I can't really see it. I think it would have more impact in the later scene, as it should serve a purpose in prompting Bilbo to action.

    It's really hard to see a place fitting for it in The beginning. It's so jampacked as it is. The Grey Pilgrim Send a private message to The Grey Pilgrim Mar 6 2013, 3:11pm
        If not in the prologue, it could also happen once Bilbo is back in his house AinurOlorin Send a private message to AinurOlorin Mar 6 2013, 3:16pm
            That sounds interesting The Grey Pilgrim Send a private message to The Grey Pilgrim Mar 6 2013, 3:19pm

                        Exactly - the fish Bilbo prepares for his dinner... Eleniel Send a private message to Eleniel Mar 6 2013, 5:03pm
                            That was a fresh fish too Ham_Sammy Send a private message to Ham_Sammy Mar 6 2013, 6:39pm
                    Probably making this up ... DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Mar 6 2013, 4:47pm

            It could flow visually Brethil Send a private message to Brethil Mar 6 2013, 6:30pm
