Bilbo: I need a holiday — a very long holiday — and I don’t expect I shall return. In fact, I mean not to!

Gandalf: A holiday from what? What do you even do?

The ring bearer was wealthy Bilbo Baggin’s nephew, and three of his friends got to join the Fellowship of the Ring? Sounds like nepotism to me. Someone should into how Elrond chooses party members, there’s likely some corruption going on.

Bilbo’s “The Road Goes Ever Ever On” poem and Take Me Home Country Roads have similar energies, even if one is about leaving home and the other is about returning. 

Gandalf took Bilbo on an adventure which resulted in him getting even richer than he already was. Rather than helping a poorer hobbit achieve social mobility, he aided an already wealthy hobbit, therefore exacerbating hobbit inequality.

Bilbo: tea is at four, but any of you are welcome anytime…between 3:30 and 4:30.

Belladonna: I’m so proud to see him going off on an adventure! There really is some Took in him after all.

Bungo: He forgot his pocket handkerchief! Who forgets their pocket handkerchief?

I’m just saying, if the Council took Bilbo up on his offer to take the ring to Mordor, he would have done it in a merry fashion, had a great adventure, and returned with a bunch of riches from Mordor. Not sure why they didn’t go with that. 

The entire conversation between Bilbo and Gandalf about going on an adventure, except it’s Morgoth trying to convince Ungoliant to attack Valinor with him. 

Gandalf’s eyes flashed. ‘It will be my turn to get angry soon,’ he
said. ‘If you say that again, I shall. Then you will see Gandalf the
Grey uncloaked.’ He took a step towards the hobbit and began unbuttoning his shirt. 

Gollum, who murdered his best friend for something he’d just found: I cannot BELIEVE that this Baggins just STOLE from me! I hate him forever now! You can’t just STEAL someone’s things that you find on the floor. I am absolutely incensed right now! Thief! Thief!
