  • Bilbo meets Gandalf and tells him that he does not wish to go on any adventures, but invites him back for tea the following day.
  • I am Gandalf, and Gandalf means me!
  • We don't want any adventures here, thank you!
  • The next day lots of dwarves arrive at Bilbo's house for tea.
  • Later Gandalf arrives with four other dwarves, including Thorin. They tell Bilbo that he is the 14th man needed for their adventure. Bilbo agrees to join them.
  • Are you sure this is the 14th man?
  • Yes, it is!
  • Bilbo awakes the following morning wondering if it was all a dream, until he sees the mess in the kitchen.
  • Gandalf arrives and tells him to read a letter that the dwarves had left behind the clock for him. The letter tells him to meet them at the Green Dragon Inn in Bywater. Bilbo ruses off to meet them.
  • If you had dusted the mantelpiece, you would have found this under the clock.
  • Bilbo and Gandalf meet the dwarves and they all set off on their adventure.
  • You took a while!
