Spot the connection?

Spot the connection? Can't Post

Okay, here's a challenge for you. Put your thinking caps on and see if you can spot a thematic connection between these three small bits of the movie.

1. The exiled Dwarves of Erebor wander the wilderness, a once might people brought low; Thorin shakes his fist at the mountains and remembers the dragon-fire.

2. Bofur discovers the gold and silver coins on the floor of the troll's cave, remarks that it seems a shame to leave the treasure laying around, and he and Gloin and Ori begin to collect it up for burying.

3. Bilbo defends Thorin's body as first Azog, then one of the mounted minions, approaches.

Why these, you ask? It's the music -- these are the three places in the movie where the, for lack of a better description, "mountain-shaped" theme plays. The common musical theme suggests these three bits have something else in common.

I can come up with some good commonalities between 1 & 3, or 1 & 2, but I can't come up with a common theme for 2 & 3. So -- what connection do *you* think Howard Shore, or PJ, is trying to get at here?
