  • Quotes (3)

    • Gandalf: Did you know that your great, great, great, great Uncle Bollroarer Took was so large he could ride a real horse?
      Bilbo: Yes.
      Gandalf: Well he could. In the battle of Greenfields he charged the goblin ranks. He swung his club so hard it knocked the goblin king's head clean off and it sailed a hundred yards through the air, and went down a rabbit hole. And thus, the battle was won, and the game of golf invented at the same time.

    • Bilbo: Can you promise that I will come back?
      Gandalf: No. And if you do, you won't be the same.

    • Bilbo: Excuse me, that is a doily, not a dish cloth.
      Bofur: But it's full of holes.
      Bilbo: It's supposed to be like that, it's crochet.
      Bofur: Oh, and a wonderful game it is too, if you've got the balls for it.
