"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort."   - J.R.R.

Bilbo & Thorin - "He was my friend." Such a sad and touching part in the film (one of many!) when Bilbo said that at the end of his journey in The Hobbit TBOTFA.
