Bilbo: “Hail, Thorin.”
Thorin: “Farewell, good thief. I wish to part in friendship, and would take back my words at the gate. And I was wrong. You did understand war. It was I who did not…until now.”
Bilbo: “There are many words that I would take back as well.”
Thorin: “And does it take this, to make us see each other for who we truly are?”
Bilbo: “This is not important-“
Thorin: “Hush! Child of the kindly West…I have come to know, if more of us valued your ways, food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. But sad or merry, I must leave it now…farewell.”
Bilbo: “Farewell, King Under the Mountain.”

TAKE ME TO MINNEAPOLIS SO I CAN PITCH A TENT TILL OPENING DAY

I would give it all away to be with you.

Through the valley we ride, full of glory we soar
Where the fight will be raging from now to for more
When united we come, and divided they fall
Tonight you will witness it all!

Goblets they carved there for themselves
And harps of gold where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
was sung unheard by men or Elves…
