Bilbo Baggins "Good Morning" Bench
These are photos I took on the The Hobbiton film tour of Bilbo's bench at Bag End where he was approached by Gandalf the Grey looking for someone to go on an adventure.
"Bilbo Baggins: Good morning. Gandalf the Grey: What do you mean? Do you mean to wish me a good morning, or do you mean that it is a good morning whether I want it or not? Or perhaps you mean to say that you feel good this particular morning? Or are you simply stating that it is a morning to be good on? Bilbo Baggins: All of them at once, I suppose. [long pause] Can I help you? Gandalf the Grey: That remains to be seen. I'm looking for someone to share in an adventure. Bilbo Baggins: An adventure?... Well, I don't imagine anyone west of Bree would have much interest in adventures. Nasty, disturbing, uncomfortable things. Make you late for dinner!"
