Continuity error in Rivendell? (AUJ EE) Can't Post

"I have been waiting for this very chance to tell you." This line from Gandalf in the extended edition seems odd to me. He is talking to Elrond about the Quest for Erebor and Elrond seems to be wondering why he had waited to tell him about the quest. What I don't understand is this. In the extended edition, the company stays over two nights in Rivindell, so while in the theatrical edition it appears that Gandalf and Elrond step aside to talk just after the moonrunes scene, this scene actually takes place a whole day later; the following night. Which means that Elrond had already figured out that "This is your purpose, to enter the mountain" a whole day before accusing Gandalf of keeping this a secret, and it means that Gandalf had a whole day to talk to Elrond about the quest, so why had he been waiting for "this chance"? To me it seems that "this chance" meant the reading of the moon runes, and that these scenes were filmed as if it was the same night in Rivendell, and later they decided to edit it differently for the EE, causing a slight continuity error.

"I've found it is the small things, everyday deeds of ordinary folk, that keeps the darkness at bay. Simple acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps it is because Im afraid, and he gives me courage. - Gandalf the Grey.

"Do not be afraid Mithrandir, if ever you should need my help, I will come." - Lady Galadriel.
