Bilbo: “I will miss you all. What a wonderful adventure this was. So long, Dori. Ori. Nori. … ‘Big Guy.’ Oin. Gloin.”

“Excuse me. What was that?”

Bilbo: “Just saying goodbye.”

“You don’t know my name, do you?”

Bilbo: “What? Of course, I know your name. I know all the dwarves’ names. Don’t be ridiculous.”

“What is it then?”

Bilbo: “Hmm. What was that?”

“I can’t believe you don’t know my name, after this whole adventure. I rode with you on the back of a giant eagle.”

Bilbo: “I remember it well.”

“Saved you from a Goblin.”

Bilbo: “For which I’m eternally grateful.”

“I helped you kill a giant spider.”

Bilbo: “Of course you did. We fought the giant spider together.”

Ori: “I’m the one that killed the spider with you.”

Bilbo: …

“So you don’t know my name then.”

(A pause.)

(Bilbo slips on the Ring and disappears.)

(Sound of footsteps speeding away.)
