**Party Time!** The Hobbit 80: Guess the Quote Quiz Can't Post

The Hobbit turns 80 tomorrow! To celebrate, I've prepared a small quiz. Below, I have listed 15 quotes from the book. Can you guess who these lines belong to? (Note: Some characters may be represented with more than one quote.)

Correct answers and scores will be posted in a few days.

Good luck!


1. "I wish I had been there! I would have given them more than fireworks!"

2. "Great Elephants!"

3. "Hmmm! it smells like elves!"

4. "I like six eggs with my ham, when starting on a journey: fried not poached, and mind you don't break 'em."

5. "Not that I venture to disagree with Thorin, may his beard grow ever longer; yet he was ever a dwarf with a stiff neck."

6. "Long will I tarry, ere I begin this war for gold."

7. "Also naughty little boys that play with fire get punished."

8. "Well, are you alive or are you dead?"

9. "Is there no end to this accursed forest?"

10. "But lucky numbers don't always come off."

11. "Curse them and crush them!"

12. "Fools! Why waste words and wrath on those unhappy creatures?"

13. "I will not say if this counsel be good or bad, but I will do what can be done."

14. "I hope I never smell the smell of apples again!"

15. "So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their ending!"

I love some of these! [In reply to] Can't Post

Particularly #2 and #3! Thank you, BlackFox, here's my attempt:

1. "I wish I had been there! I would have given them more than fireworks!"
Beorn, I think...

2. "Great Elephants!"
Gandalf, remarking on Bilbo's not dusting the mantlepiece, LOL!

3. "Hmmm! it smells like elves!"
Bilbo - but how DID he know what elves smell like?

4. "I like six eggs with my ham, when starting on a journey: fried not poached, and mind you don't break 'em."
Thorin, you are such a pain at times...

5. "Not that I venture to disagree with Thorin, may his beard grow ever longer; yet he was ever a dwarf with a stiff neck."
Balin

6. "Long will I tarry, ere I begin this war for gold."
The Elvenking (not yet known as Thranduil)

7. "Also naughty little boys that play with fire get punished."
Gandalf, to the goblins that have them "treed"

8. "Well, are you alive or are you dead?"
A testy Bilbo to the sodden dwarves

9. "Is there no end to this accursed forest?"
I think Thorin

10. "But lucky numbers don't always come off."
Smaug

11. "Curse them and crush them!"
Gollum

12. "Fools! Why waste words and wrath on those unhappy creatures?"
Bard (believing Thorin & company were victims of Smaug)

13. "I will not say if this counsel be good or bad, but I will do what can be done."
Elrond

14. "I hope I never smell the smell of apples again!"
I think this was Kili or Fili...half credit? Smile

15. "So comes snow after fire, and even dragons have their ending!"
Bilbo

Ack! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll blame watching TV while taking this quiz on the fact that I definitely know that the Elvenking said #6. But like a good student, I'll take the loss.
