Sooner or later Eldo, I will get one by you, just see if I don't!

Actually a Bombadil appearance might be cool <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> :P :lol: .

I like the part where Tom Bombadil sails down the Withywindle and meets Farmer Maggot. It happened at the time Bilbo met Beorn (I've checked the texts). It's the same kind of thing as when Gandalf set off for the White Council.

Come to think of it, it's actually recounted in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, as I now remember. It wasn't in TH book at all. Nonetheless, it should still be in the movie - same as the White Council should be...

Well there you go then. It's settled <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> .

Darn tootin'!

For me the entrance of Mirkwood and a little later the elven party and the escape of the dwarves. The imagery of those scenes and the plot to wether Gandalf will return is a truly beautiful piece of writing.
I like the time the four hobbits spend in Tom Bombadil's house. The autumn rain, the food, the storytelling and dreams....
That must have been in the book (LOTR actually). I don't know how many Movie fans would know that though...

In this scene we also get to see the other side of elves that we don't normally see (drunk, complaining, etc.)[/quote:27bd8ih1]

So, it seems like there might be some contradiction here with the scene in the extended version where Legolas and Gimli play the drinking game. Legolas seems unable to get drunk there, but his people back home aren't. :?
Back to best line in the Hobbit:

"Your information is antiquated!" snapped the dragon.
In TT, Helms Deep battle, when Legolas and Gimli are counting. I thought that it was just part of the movie, but its my favorite part in the books. It sheds some humour and lightness to such a dark scene.
Welcome to the forum Anochria :mrgreen: .

On another thread we have discussed some of the reasons Legolas barely felt a tingle from boozing it up with Gimli (I forget which one :roll: :roll: ). But, in short, Elves are used to much stronger alcohol than Ale or Mead. Elf-Wine is highly intoxicating as it has a much higher alcohol content. So Elves can get drunk if they drink enough of it 8-) .

The Goblin caves. Definitely! Same with Moria in LoTR's. I've always been mystified by them and I would be at home as a Dwarf! :shock:
My favorite part of the Hobbit,Bilbo himself thruout the book,his amazement at the world outside the Shire,his dedication to his duty as "thief"{which of course is all Gandalfs fault}his quiet reflection time as he waits for the battle of 5 armies.I think Tolkiens writing of both Bilbo and Frodo give us all a life lesson{new things and adventures are just ways to come to appreciate the things we love at home} ITS A DANGEROUS BUSINESS STEPPING OUT ONES DOOR

I like when the dwarves arrive unannounced at Bilbo's hole in Hobbiton. It's easy to identify with Bilbo and the awkward situation in which he suddenly found himself.
I liked the part where they first met the goblins!
Yes, and Tolkien gives that wonderful description of the goblins having created many things that have plagued the world ever since. I like that part, too.
Or the bit that describes how Hobbits 'invented' golf! <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />
