It's time for some BS! Can't Post

(I did a variation of this one recently, but this one is geared more towards how it appeared in TH:AUJ.)

Here's another Book Spoiler comparing the book to the screen as we look at how the Company was formed... for a moment of Tolkien-zen.

From An Unexpected Party: The Hobbit



... Thorin, an enormously important dwarf, in fact no other than the great Thorin Oakenshield himself... ...Thorin indeed was very haughty, and said nothing about service...

... '...Now we are all here!" said Gandalf... "...Quite a merry gathering! I hope there is something left for the late-goers to eat and drink! What's that? Tea! No thank you! A little red wine, I think, for me..."



... ...the hobbit stumped off to the pantries...

... "...Seems to know as much about the inside of my larders as I do myself!" thought Mr. Baggins, who was feeling positively flummoxed, and was beginning to wonder whether a most wretched adventure had not come right into his house. By the time he had got all the bottles and dishes and knives and forks and glasses and plates and spoons and things piled up on big trays, he was getting very hot, and red in the face, and annoyed.

... "Confusticate and bebother these dwarves!" he said aloud. "Why don't they come and lend a hand?" Lo and behold! there stood Balin and Dwalin at the door of the kitchen, and Fili and Kili behind them, and before he could say knife they had whisked the trays and a couple of small tables into the parlour and set out everything afresh.

... Gandalf sat at the head of the party with the thirteen dwarves all round: and Bilbo sat on a stool at the fireside, nibbling at a biscuit (his appetite was quite taken away), and trying to look as if this was all perfectly ordinary and not in the least an adventure. The dwarves ate and ate, and talked and talked, and time got on. At last they pushed their chairs back, and Bilbo made a move to collect the plates and glasses...

... ...Thereupon the twelve dwarves... ...jumped to their feet, and made tall piles of all the things. Off they went, not waiting for trays, balancing columns of plates, each with a bottle on the top, with one hand, while the hobbit ran after them almost squeaking with fright: "please be careful!" and "please, don't trouble! I can manage." But the dwarves only started to sing:

…………….BOOK………………………………………………………..MOVIE

Chip the glasses and crack the plates!……………….. “Blunt the knives, bend the forks
Blunt the knives and bend the forks! ………………..
Smash the bottles and burn the corks
….
That's what Bilbo Baggins hates—……………….. Chip the glasses and crack the plates
Smash the bottles and burn the corks! ………………..
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!




.
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat! ……………….. Cut the cloth and tread on the fat

Splash the wine on every door! ……………….. Splash the wine on every door

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

. So carefully! carefully with the plates!

... And of course they did none of these dreadful things, and everything was cleaned and put away safe as quick as lightning, while the hobbit was turning round and round in the middle of the kitchen trying to see what they were doing.
