Bilbo, in the Hobbit: gets captured by goblins in a mountain, has to come up with riddles to save his life in a mountain, has to survive a cunning dragon in a mountain.

Bilbo, in LotR: I want to see mountains again, Gandalf.

When I first read the Hobbit and that Bilbo lived in a “hole in the ground” I assumed that was just like, a hole. And Tolkien is saying that it’s not oozy or sandy or anything and I’m like, yeah, but it’s a hole. Like, a pit or something. How is a pit comfortable? Bilbo just sits in this elegant pit in the ground?

Honestly when Bilbo tells the trolls that he is “a good cook myself, and cook better than I cook, if you see what I mean,” it would have been great if the Trolls just enlisted him to cook all of the dwarves. That would have gotten him out of his adventure quickly, too, which I’m sure he would have appreciated.

Bilbo: I am he that buries his friends alive and drowns them and draws them alive again from the water.

Smaug: Jeez…you sound like a terrible friend. Why are you doing that to people you supposedly care about? You’re a monster.

Bilbo wanted to get out of the shire back when he was turning 107, but it took him a long time to think of the “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve” line and he was adamant about saying something awesome before disappearing.
