Page 1 2 THE NOVEL
[after leaving Thranduil’s tent]
Gandalf: Rest up tonight. You must leave on the morrow.
Bilbo Baggins: What?
Gandalf: Get as far away from here as possible.
Bilbo Baggins: I-I’m not leaving.
Bilbo Baggins: You picked me as the fourteenth man. I’m not about to leave the company now.
Gandalf: There is no company, not any more. And I don’t like to think what Thorin would do when he finds out what you’ve done.
Bilbo Baggins: I’m not afraid of Thorin.
Gandalf: Well, you should be. Don’t underestimate the evil of gold. Gold over which a serpent had long brooded. Dragon-sickness seeps into the hearts of all who came to this Mountain. Almost all.
[he calls over to Alfrid]
Gandalf: You there! Find this Hobbit a bed and fill his belly with hot food. He’s earned it.
[as Alfrid goes to take Bilbo Gandalf stops him]
Gandalf: Hey. Keep an eye on him. If he should try to leave, you tell me.
[Alfrid walks over to Bilbo]
Alfrid: Move it. Stupid Hobbit.
[the next morning, the Elf and Lake-town armies stand before Erebor to face the dwarves; back in Dale Alfrid goes to wake Bilbo]
Alfrid: Wakey, wakey, Hobbit. Up you…get?
[he sees Bilbo is gone; back at Erebor Thranduil and Bard ride slowly towards the stone gate when Thorin shoots his arrow to land in front of Thranduil]
Thorin: I will put the next one between your eyes.
[the dwarves cheer for Thorin when Thranduil indicates to his Elf army to aim their arrows at them, the dwarves hide behind the stone wall, Thranduil then indicates for his army to stand down]
Thranduil: We’ve come to tell you payment of your debt has been offered and accepted.
Thorin: What payment? I gave you nothing. You have nothing.
[Bard takes out the Arkenstone and holds it up]
Bard: We have this.
Kili: They have the Arkenstone. Thieves! How came you by the heirloom of our house? That stone belongs to the king.
Bard: The King may have it, with our good will.
[Bard puts the Arkenstone back in his pocket]
Bard: But first he must honor his word.
Thorin: They’re taking us for fools. This is a ruse, and a filthy lie. The Arkenstone is in this Mountain, it is a trick!
Bilbo Baggins: I-it’s no trick. The stone is real. I gave it to them.
[Thorin faces Bilbo]
Bilbo Baggins: I took it as my fourteenth share.
Thorin: You would steel from me?
Bilbo Baggins: Steel from you? No, no. I may be a burglar, but I like to think I’m an honest one. I’m willing to let it stand against my claim.
Thorin: Against your claim?
Thorin: Your claim? You have no claim over me, you miserable rat!
Bilbo Baggins: I was going to give it to you. Many times I wanted to, but…
Thorin: But what, thief?
Bilbo Baggins: You are changed, Thorin. The Dwarf I met in Bag End would never have gone back on his word, would never have doubted the loyalty of his kin.
Thorin: Do not speak to me of loyalty.
[to the dwarves]
Thorin: Throw him from the rampart!
[the dwarves do not move, refusing to carry out his order]
Thorin: Did you not hear me?! I will do it myself.
[he grabs hold of Bilbo]
Thorin: I curse you!
[the other dwarves try to stop him from throwing Bilbo over the edge]
Thorin: Cursed be the wizard that forced you on this company!
[suddenly Gandalf appears below among the Elf army and walks up to the front]
Gandalf: If you don’t like my burglar, then please don’t damage him. Return him to me.
You’re not making a very splendid figure as King under the Mountain, are you, Thorin, son of Thrain?
[Thorin lets Bilbo go]
Thorin: Never again will I have dealings with wizards!
Thorin: Or Shire rats!
[Bilbo goes over the wall and starts going down the rope to join Gandalf and the others]
Bard: Are we resolved? The return of the Arkenstone for what was promised.
[Thorin looks over to the horizon]
Bard: Give us your answer. Will you have peace or war?
[just as Thorin’s about to decide a black crow lands in front of him]
Thorin: I will have war.
[an army of Dwarves led by Thorin’s cousin Dain Ironfoot arrives]
[the dwarves cheer]
Dwarves: Dain! Dain! Dain!
[Thranduil commands his army of Elves to march towards the Dwarf army; referring to Dain]
Bilbo Baggins: Who is that? He doesn’t look very happy.
Gandalf: It is Dain, Lord of the Iron Hills. Thorin’s cousin.
Bilbo Baggins: Are they alike?
Gandalf: I’ve always found Thorin the more reasonable of the two.
[Dain rides over the Elf and Lake-town army]
Dain: Good morning! How are we all? I have a wee proposition, if you wouldn’t mind giving me a few moments of your time. Would you consider…
Dain: Just sodding off?!
[the Lake-town army starts pulling back in fear]
Dain: All of you! Right now!
[to the Lake-town army]
Bard: Stand fast!
Gandalf: Come now, Lord Dain.
Dain: Gandalf the Grey. Tell this rabble to leave, or I’ll water the ground with their blood.
Gandalf: There is no need for war between Dwarves, Men and Elves. A legion of Orcs march on the Mountain. Stand your army down.
Dain: I will not stand down before any Elf. Not least this faithless woodland sprite. He wishes nothing but ill upon my people. If he chooses to stand between me and my kin, I’ll split his pretty head open! See if he’s still smirking then.
Thranduil: He’s clearly mad, like his cousin.
Dain: You hear that, lads? We’re on! Let’s give these bastards a good hammering!
[he orders his army to get ready when suddenly they hear a noise]
[a massive worm-like creature bursts through one of the mountains before being joined by other were-worms]
Dain: Oh, come on!
[Azog and his Orc army show up]
Azog: [subtitled] Come forth my Armies!
Dain: The Hordes of Hell are upon us! To battle! To battle, sons of Durin!
[as the Orc army starts marching towards the Dwarf army]
Kili: I’m going over the wall, who’s coming with me?
Dwarves: Aye! Yes!
Fili: Come on, let’s go.
Thorin: Stand down.
Fili: What? Are we to do nothing?
Thorin: I said stand down!
[seeing the Elf army not moving as the Orc army is about to attack]
Bilbo Baggins: The Elves, will they not fight?
Gandalf: Thranduil! This is madness!
[as the Orc army are heading towards the Dwarf army suddenly the Elf army joins in the fight and starts attacking the Orc army with Dwarf army joining them]
Bilbo Baggins: Uh, Gandalf, is this a good place to stand?
[to his men]
Azog: [subtitled] Send in the War Beasts!
[Thranduil orders his army as they continue to fight with the Orcs]
Azog: [subtitled] They cannot fight on two fronts. Now we make our move. Attack the city!
[the Orc army starts heading towards Dale]
Gandalf: Azog. He’s trying to cut us off.
[to the Lake-town army]
Bard: All of you, fall back to Dale! Now!
Gandalf: To the city! People, this way!
[the war beasts along with the rest of the Orc army start attacking Dale and the people remaining in the city]
Bain: Sigrid! Tilda!
[Bard rides into Dale looking for his children]
Bard: My children! Where are my children?
Lake-town Woman: I saw them, they were down in the Old Market!
Bard: The Market? Where are they now? Tilda! Sigrid!
[some of the men in the Lake-town army rush over to Bard]
Percy: Bard, Orcs are storming over the Causeway.
Bard: Get the bowmen to the eastern parapet. Hold them of for as long as you can.
Percy: Archers, this way!
Lake-towner Male: The Orcs have taken Stone Street, the Market’s overrun!
Bard: The rest of you, follow me!
[Bard leads the Lake-town army, they start attacking the Orcs along with Gandalf and Bilbo]
Alfrid: Charge! Onward! To the death!
[as the Lake-towners army head off to fight the Orcs Alfrid slips by and goes and hides]
[Bain finds Sigrid and Tilda after killing an Orc, then together they notice Bard fighting]
Sigrid: Over here!
Tilda: Da we’re here!
[Bard sees them when suddenly a war beast comes upon them, Bard gets onto a cart and heaves himself down towards the war beast]
Bard: Tilda! Bain! Sigrid! Get down!
[Bard lands onto the beast]
[to his children after rescuing them from the war beast]
Bard: Listen, I need you to gather the women and children, take them to the Great Hall and barricade the door. You understand? You must not come out for any reason.
[Bard takes Bain’s sword from him]
Tilda: We want to stay with you.
[Alfrid who’s been listening to them from his hiding place appears]
Alfrid: Show your father some respect. You leave it to me, Sire.
[to Sigrid and Tilda]
Alfrid: You heard him, we make to the Great Hall.
[he pushes them along]
Bard: Alfrid, women and children only. I need every man fighting. See that you return.
[he gives Alfrid Bain’s sword]
Alfrid: I’ll get them to safety, Sire. Then my sword is yours to command.
[to the children sitting near them]
Alfrid: Get up!
Bard: Look after them.
Bain: I will.
[Bard rejoins the fighting]
[as he gathers the women and children to safety]
Alfrid: Shift it, granny.
[he gives the sword Bard had given him to Bain; to the women and children]
Bain: Make for the Great Hall.
[suddenly Alfrid pushes his way through the crowd]
Alfrid: Out of my way! Abandon the cripples!
[he rushes towards the Great Hall; the elves along with Thranduil join the fighting of the Orcs in Dale]
[back with Azog watching from his position on a mountain top nearby]
Azog: [subtitled] They cannot hold the city! The Dwarves are almost spent.
[the Dwarf army continue to fight the Orcs in Erebor, one of them kills Dain’s pig]
Dain: Yer buggers!
[Dain continues to fight the Orcs]
Dain: Thorin! Where’s Thorin? We need him. Where is he?
[to his Orcs]
Azog: [subtitled] Let these lands run with blood! Slaughter them all.
[to his men as the Orcs continue to attack and overrun Dale]
Bard: Fall back!
[we see the many dead bodies of the Lake-towners and elves as the Orcs continue to attack them]
[back inside the Lonely Mountain Thorin sits on his throne when Dwalin comes over to him]
Dwalin: Since when do we forsake our own people? Thorin, they are dying out there.
Thorin: There are holes beneath holes within this Mountain, places we can fortify. Shore up, make safe? Yes. Yes, that is it. We must move the gold further underground to safety.
[Thorin gets up to leave]
Dwalin: Did you not hear me? Dain is surrounded. They’re being slaughtered, Thorin.
Thorin: Many die in war, life is cheap. But a treasure such as this cannot be counted in lives lost. It is worth all the blood we can spend.
Dwalin: You sit here in these vast halls with a crown upon your head, and yet you are lesser now than you have ever been.
Thorin: Do not speak to me as if I were some lowly Dwarf Lord. As is if I were still Thorin… Oakenshield. I am your King!
Dwalin: You were always my King. You used to know that once. You were always my King. You used to know that once. You cannot see what you have become.
Thorin: Go. Get out, before I kill you.
[with tears in his eyes Dwalin turns and leaves]
[Thorin goes down to the Gallery of Kings and recalls his conversations]
Dwalin: [voice over] You sit here with a crown upon your head. You are lesser now than you have ever been.
Thorin: [voice over] A treasure such as this cannot be counted in lives lost.
Balin: [voice over] A sickness lies upon that treasure…
Bard: [voice over] The blind ambition of a Mountain King.
Thorin: [voice over] Am I not the King?
[he walks over the hardened gold in the gallery as he continues to recall]
Thorin: [voice over] This gold is ours, and ours alone. Treasure hoard… I will not part with a single coin.
Bard: [voice over] He could not see beyond his own desire!
Thorin: [voice over] …as if I were some lowly Dwarf Lord. Thorin Oakenshield.
Balin: [voice over] A sickness which drove your grandfather mad.
Thorin: [voice over] Oakenshield.
Dwalin: [voice over] This is Thorin, son of Thrain, son of Thror!
[Thorin continues to recall his conversations as he became changed]
Thorin: [voice over] I am not my grandfather.
Gandalf: [voice over] You are the heir to the Throne of Durin.
Dwalin: [voice over] They are dying out there.
Gandalf: [voice over] Take back Erebor.
Dwalin: [voice over] Dain is surrounded…is surrounded.
Gandalf: [voice over] Take back your homeland.
Bilbo Baggins: [voice over] You are changed, Thorin.
Thorin: [voice over] I’m not my grandfather.
Bilbo Baggins: [voice over] Is this treasure truly worth more than your honor?
Thorin: [voice over] I’m not my grandfather.
[he starts hallucinating seeing the Smaug swimming beneath him, as well as himself sinking into the gold]
Gandalf: [voice over] This treasure will be your death.
[as he sees himself sinking into the gold he suddenly snaps out of it, he then throws his crown aside]
[to his men back in the battlefield]
Dain: Fall back! Fall back! Back to the Mountain! Fall back!
[as he watches from his mountain top]
Azog: [subtitled] Now comes their end. Prepare for the final assault.
[inside the mountain as the rest of the company waits restlessly Kili sees Thorin walking towards them with his sword in hand]
Kili: I will not hide behind a wall of stone, while others fight our battles for us! It is not in my blood, Thorin.
Thorin: No, it is not. We are sons of Durin, and Durin’s folk do not flee from a fight.
[they smile at each other, Thorin touches their foreheads together and then walks over to the rest of the company]
Thorin: I have no right to ask this of any of you, but will you follow me, one last time?
[as the Dwarf army have fallen towards the mountain]
Azog: [subtitled] Not yet! Wait…wait. Attack…now!
[as the Orc army moves forward to attack suddenly Bombur sounds the horn]
Bilbo Baggins: Thorin.
[suddenly they smash through the wall of the mountain with the golden bell and join in the fight]
Dain: To the King! To the King!
[Thorin and his company start attacking the Orcs and the Dwarf army joins in; watching from Dale]
Bilbo Baggins: The Dwarves, they’re rallying.
Gandalf: They’re rallying to their King.
[to the Lake-town men]
Bard: Any man who wants to give their last, follow me!
[Bard leads them to attack the Orcs, Gandalf and Bilbo join in; inside the Great Hall where the women, children are]
Lake-town Woman #1: I say we stand with our men in life and in death.
Lake-town Woman #2: I’m with ya.
Bain: Arm yourselves!
[to Alfrid who’s disguised himself as old woman hunched over]
Lake-town Woman #3: Come with us, love.
Alfrid: No, no, no. You leave an old woman be.
Lake-town Woman #3: Don’t be afraid.
Alfrid: I said get off!
[suddenly the leader of the women pulls the cloak off of Alfrid’s head]
Lake-town Woman #1: Alfrid Lickspittle, you are a coward.
Alfrid: A Coward? Not every man is brave enough to wear a corset.
Lake-town Woman #1: You’re not a man, you’re a weasel.
[as the women and children head off the join the men, Alfrid notices some of the hidden treasure]
[back on the battlefield]
Dain: Thorin! Hold on! I’m coming!
[he kills an Orc as heads over to Thorin]
Dain: Hey, cousin, what took you so long?
[Thorin laughs and they embrace]
Dain: There’s too many of these buggers, Thorin. I hope you’ve got a plan.
[Thorin notices Azog and his Orcs on the mountain top]
Thorin: Aye, we’re going to take out their leader.
[Thorin gets on a ram]
Thorin: I’m going to kill that piece of filth.
Dwalin: Lead on!
[as Thorin heads off, Dwalin, Kili and Fili join him riding towards Azog]
[back in Dale]
Gandalf: We may yet survive this.
Bilbo Baggins: Gandalf!
[Bilbo notices Thorin riding off towards Azog in the distance]
Bilbo Baggins: It’s Thorin.
Gandalf: And Fili and Kili…and Dwalin. He’s taking his best warriors.
Bilbo Baggins: To do what?
Gandalf: To cut the head of the snake.
[Thorin, Kili, Fili and Dwalin ride up to Ravenhill where they think Azog and the rest of his Orcs are, they start killing the Orcs they find there]
[Legolas and Tauriel ride into Dale]
Gandalf: Legolas. Legolas Greenleaf!
Legolas: There is a second army. Bolg leads a force of Gundabad Orcs. They are almost upon us.
Gandalf: Gundabad? Ahh. This was their plan all along. Azog engages our forces, then Bolg sweeps in from the north.
Bilbo Baggins: What? Th…the north? Where is the north exactly?
Bilbo Baggins: Ravenhill? Thorin is up there. And Fili and Kili! They’re all up there!
[Tauriel looks shocked and distressed on hearing this]
[referring to Azog after killing the Orcs on Ravenhill]
Fili: Where is he? It looks empty. I think Azog has fled.
Thorin: I don’t think so.
[he turns to the other three]
Thorin: Fili, take your brother. Scout out the towers. Keep low and out of sight. If you see something, report back, do not engage. Do you understand?
Dwalin: We have company. Goblin mercenaries. No more than a hundred.
Thorin: We’ll take care of them.
[to Fili and Kili]
Thorin: Go! Go!
[while Thorin and Dwalin deal with the Goblins, Fili and Kili go off to scout the towers]
[back in Dale Thranduil looks at the slaughtered bodies of his Elf army; to Feren]
Thranduil: Recall your company.
[Feren sounds the horn, Gandalf makes his way to Thranduil]
Gandalf: My Lord, disperse this force to Ravenhill, the Dwarves are about to be overrun. Thorin must be warned.
Thranduil: By all means, warn him. I’ve spent enough Elvish blood in defense of this accursed land. No more!
[Thranduil walks off]
Bilbo Baggins: I’ll go.
Gandalf: Don’t be ridiculous, you’ll never make it.
Bilbo Baggins: Why not?
Gandalf: Because they will see you coming, and kill you!
Bilbo Baggins: No, they won’t. They won’t see me.
Gandalf: It’s out of the question. I won’t allow it.
Bilbo Baggins: I’m not asking you to allow it, Gandalf.
[Bilbo turns and leaves, he then puts on the One Ring and goes off to warn Thorin]
[as Thranduil and his army are setting off to leave Dale he comes across Tauriel]
Tauriel: [subtitled] You will go no further.
Tauriel: You will not turn away. Not this time.
Thranduil: Get out of my way.
Tauriel: The Dwarves will be slaughtered.
Thranduil: Yes, they will die. Today, tomorrow, one year hence, a hundred years from now. What does it matter? They are mortal.
[suddenly Tauriel draws her bow and arrow and points it at Thranduil]
Tauriel: You think your life is worth more than theirs, while there is no love in it? There is no love in you.
[Thranduil strikes her bow and arrow with his sword in anger, breaks it in two and points his sword at her]
Thranduil: What do you know of love? Nothing. What you feel for that Dwarf is not real. You think it is love? Are you ready to die for it?
[suddenly Legolas strikes down Thranduil’s sword]
Legolas: [subtitled] If you harm her you will have to kill me.
[Legolas turns to Tauriel]
Legolas: I will go with you.
[they both leave]
[Bard kills a war beast as it is about to kill Alfrid who was attempting to leave with the town’s treasure, Alfrid stumbles and all the gold falls out of his shirt]
Bard: Get up.
Alfrid: Get away from me. I don’t take orders from you. People trusted you, they listened to you. The Master’s mantle was there for the taking and you threw it all away. For what?
[he stuffs the gold coins back into his shirt and stands, Bard looks at his children who are watching and Alfrid starts to walk away]
Bard: Alfrid…your slip is showing.
[Alfrid quickly walks off]
[at Ravenhill as Fili and Kili go scouting in the towers they hear a noise]
Fili: Stay here, search the lower levels. I’ve got this.
[reluctantly Kili leaves; back outside Thorin and Dwalin wait impatiently]
Dwalin: Where is that Orc filth?
[just then Bilbo suddenly appears after taking off the One Ring]
Bilbo Baggins: Thorin!
Bilbo Baggins: You have to leave here. Now! Azog has another army, attacking from the north. This watchtower will be completely surrounded, there’ll be no way out.
Dwalin: We are so close. That Orc scum is in there. I say we push on.
Thorin: No! That’s what he wants. He wants to draw us in. This is a trap.
Thorin: Find Fili and Kili, call them back.
Dwalin: Thorin, are you sure about this?
Thorin: Do it. We live to fight another day.
[suddenly they hear a noise coming from the towers, Azog then appears holding Fili]
Bilbo Baggins: Oh no.
Azog: [subtitled] This one dies first. Then the brother. Then you, Oakenshield. You will die last.
Fili: Go. Run!
[Azog impales Fili]
Azog: [subtitled] Here ends your filthy bloodline!
[he throws Fili’s body over the edge as the others watch in horror, enraged, Kili runs to the top]
[Thorin starts going after Kili]
Dwalin: Thorin! Thorin, no.
[Dwalin then goes after Thorin, Kili starts decapitating every Orc in his path and Azog attacks Thorin]
[Bolg, the rest of the Orcs and the giant bats arrive at Ravenhill and as they go to attack Bilbo Dwalin starts battling it out with them]
Bolg: [subtitled] Slay them all!
[at the same time Legolas and Tauriel arrive, Legolas holds onto one of the giant bats legs to fly over to the top tower, Tauriel then notices Kili fighting with the Orcs]
Tauriel: No. Kili!
[Tauriel joins in the fight with the Orcs and in the chaos Bilbo is knocked unconscious]
[as Thorin is battling it out with Azog he is attacked by Azog’s Orcs]
Azog: [subtitled] Go in for the kill! Finish him!
[Legolas helps Thorin out by killing the Orcs with his arrows from the top of one of the towers; as Tauriel kills one of the Orcs she call out to Kili]
Tauriel: Kili! Kili!
[suddenly Bolg attacks Tauriel from behind, as Bolg overpowers her and throws her against the wall, Kili comes to her defense, as Bolg is about to stab Kili Tauriel tries to stop him]
[she jumps onto Bolg’s back but he throws her aside and stabs Kili through the heart]
Tauriel: No! No.
[Tauriel watches Kili die, then in fury she attacks Bolg and pulls him down the edge, Legolas watches Bolg going to attack her, he tries to shoot an arrow but sees he’s out, he jumps onto a war beast and makes him ram into a tower that forms a bridge and lets him run to Tauriel’s aid and battles it out with Bolg on the crumbling tower]
[from atop on the icy falls, Thorin is battling it out with Azog’s Orcs when one goes over the edge, through the crumbling tower taking Bolg with him, then just as another Orc is about to kill Thorin Legolas notices and throws his sword into the Orc’s chest, Bolg then appears again so Legolas takes out his knives, they battle it out until Legolas manages to drive one of his knives into Bolg’s head, and he falls through the tower which crumbles]
[Legolas goes in search of Tauriel]
[at the same time using Legolas’ sword Thorin fights with Azog, he swings his boulder to try and slam Thorin, only to break the ice around him and then he gets his boulder stuck, he watches in shock as Radagast and Beorn swoop in on the Great Eagles to take down the rest of the Orcs with Beorn forming into his bear form]
[Thorn grabs Azog’s boulder and throws it to Azog, making him slip down the broken ice and sink into the water, Thorin watches Azog’s body float in the water under the ice when suddenly he opens his eyes and stabs Thorin in the foot and bursts through the ice, he pins Thorin down, Thorin tries to hold him back from impaling him but realizing he’s too strong he lets Azog impale him, but at the same time he manages to stab Azog with his sword, Azog falls and Thorin manages to drive his sword through his body into the ice finally killing Azog]
[as Bilbo becomes conscious he notices the eagles flying above him]
Bilbo Baggins: The eagles are coming.
[he sees Thorin walking over to the edge of the icy fall watching the rest of the battle down below, he collapses and Bilbo comes to his side]
Bilbo Baggins: No, don’t look. Don’t move. Lie still.
[Bilbo notices the wound in Thorin’s stomach]
Bilbo Baggins: Oh!
Thorin: I’m glad you’re here.
Bilbo Baggins: Shh, shh, shh, shh…
Thorin: I wish to part from you in friendship.
Bilbo Baggins: No, you are not going anywhere, Thorin, you’re going to live.
Thorin: I would take back my words and my deeds at the gate. You did what only a true friend would do. Forgive me. I was too blind to see. I am so sorry that I have led you into such peril.
[he starts choking with pain]
Bilbo Baggins: No, I…I’m glad to have shared in your perils, Thorin. Each and every one of them. It is far more than any Baggins deserves.
[Thorin smiles at him]
Thorin: Farewell, Master Burglar. Go back to your books and your armchair. Plant your trees, watch them grow. If more people valued home above gold, this world would be a merrier place.
[Thorin takes his last breath]
Bilbo Baggins: No! No, no, no, no! No! Thorin! Thorin, don’t you dare…
[Thorin finally dies]
Bilbo Baggins: Thorin? Look, Thorin. Thorin, hold on. You hold on. You see, the Eagles… the Eagles, the Eagles are here. Thorin…the Eag…
[Bilbo begins to weep]
[Tauriel holds onto Kili’s dead body, she puts the stone he’d given her into his hand and begins to weep as she holds him, Legolas watches her then turns to leave when he runs into Thranduil]
Legolas: I…cannot go back.
Thranduil: Where will you go?
Legolas: I do not know.
Thranduil: Go north. Find the Dunedain. There is a young ranger amongst them, you should meet him. His father Arathorn was a good man. His son might grow to be a great one.
Legolas: What is his name?
Thranduil: He is known in the wild as Strider. His true name you must discover for yourself.
[Legolas starts to walk off]
Thranduil: Legolas, your mother loved you, more than anyone, more than life.
[Legolas turns to acknowledge his words for a moment before walking off]
[Thranduil finds Tauriel crying over Kili’s body]
Tauriel: I want to bury him.
Tauriel: If this is love, I do not want it. Take it from me, please! Why does it hurt so much?
Thranduil: Because it was real.
[with tears in her eyes she kisses Kili on his lips]
[Gandalf finds Bilbo sitting by himself on some steps and joins him, he starts lighting his pipe and making some noise, Bilbo looks at him and Gandalf smiles in comfort, they watch the surviving dwarves go over to Thorin’s body and kneel before him; over in Dale the horn is sounded by the people in respect]
[walking out of the Lonely Mountain]
Balin: There is to be a great feast tonight. Songs will be sung, tales will be told, and Thorin Oakenshield will pass into legend.
Bilbo Baggins: I know that’s how you must honor him, but to me, he was never that. He was…to me…he was…
[he chokes back his tears]
Bilbo Baggins: Well, I think I’ll slip quietly away, will you tell the others I said goodbye?
[Bilbo turns to leave]
Balin: You can tell them yourself.
[Bilbo looks back to find the rest of the dwarves standing behind him and smiles]
Bilbo Baggins: If any of you are ever passing Bag-End, uh…tea is at four. There’s plenty of it, you are welcome any time.
[the dwarves bow their heads in acknowledgment]
Bilbo Baggins: Uh…don’t bother knocking.
[the dwarves laugh softly, Bilbo turns and walks away as the dwarves watch him with sadness]
[Gandalf and Bilbo ride back to the borders of the Shire]
Gandalf: Ah, the borders of the Shire. It is here I must leave you.
Bilbo Baggins: That’s a shame. I quite liked having a wizard around. It seems they bring good luck.
Gandalf: You don’t really suppose, do you, that all your adventures and escapes were managed by mere luck. Magic rings should not be used lightly, Bilbo. Don’t take me for a fool, I know you found one…
Bilbo Baggins: No.
Gandalf: In the Goblin tunnels, and I’ve kept my eye on you ever since.
Bilbo Baggins: Well, thank goodness. Farewell, Gandalf.
[Bilbo extends his hand to Gandalf]
[Gandalf shakes his hand then turns and starts walking off but stops and turns back again]
Bilbo Baggins: You, uh…you needn’t worry about that ring, it fell out of my pocket during the battle. I lost it.
Gandalf: You’re a very fine person, Mr Baggins, and I’m very fond of you. But you’re only quite a little fellow in a wide world after all.
[Bilbo turns and walks away and Gandalf walks back to his horse]
[as Bilbo is walking back toward his home, he sees people in the area walking off with his belongings]
Bilbo Baggins: Wait a minute, that my mother’s glory box. And that’s…my dining chair.
[to a man carrying a piece of furniture over his shoulder]
Bilbo Baggins: Uh…put that poof down! What is going on?
Master Worrywort: Hello, mister Bilbo. You’re not supposed to be here.
Bilbo Baggins: What do you mean?
Master Worrywort: On account of you being presumed dead and all.
Bilbo Baggins: I am not dead, presumed or otherwise.
[Bilbo starts rushing back towards his house as more people walk off with his belongings]
Master Worrywort: I’m not sure that’s permitted! Mister Bilbo!
[as Bilbo rushes back towards his house he sees his belongings are being auctioned off]
Tosser Grub: …anyone. Any advance on twenty-one? Any advance on twenty-one? Sold to Mrs. Bolder! Somewhere for Fatty to put his feet on.
[the people in the crowd laugh]
Tosser Grub: So do I have any bids for this. This is Shire-made. None of your Dwarvish reproductions here, honestly.
Bilbo Baggins: Stop! Stop! There’s been a mistake!

Tosser Grub: This is most irregular. It’s been more than thirteen months since the disappearance, if you are in fact Bilbo Baggins and un-deceased. Can you prove it?
Bilbo Baggins: What?

Bilbo Baggins: Alright. Right!

[Bilbo walks through his empty home, he straightens his parents portraits then takes out the Ring to look at it, it then cuts to older Bilbo holding the ring in his hand when he hears a knock at his door]
Old Bilbo: No, thank you! We don’t want any more visitors, well-wishers, or distant relations!
Gandalf: And what about very old friends?
[Bilbo smiles and rushes to the front door to open it]
Old Bilbo: Gandalf?
Gandalf: Bilbo Baggins!
[last lines; as we hear Bilbo and Gandalf talking we see Thorin’s map of Erebor on Bilbo’s desk]
Old Bilbo: My dear, Gandalf!
Gandalf: It’s good to see you. One hundred and eleven years old. Who would believe it?
[we hear them both laughing]
Old Bilbo: Oh, come in. Welcome, welcome.
