Bilbo: Uh... no, no, not... not that one, he... he's infected!
William Troll: You what?
Bilbo Baggins: Yes, he's got worms in his... tubes.
Tom Troll: Ooh! [Tom throws down Bombur in disgust]
Bilbo Baggins: In-in fact, they all have. They're infested with parasites, it's a terrible business, I wouldn't risk it, I really wouldn't.
Oin: Parasites? Did he say parasites?
Kili: Yeah, we don't have parasites. You have parasites!
[Thorin kicks Kili, and the dwarves realize what Bilbo is doing]
Oin: I've got parasites as big as my arm!
Kili: Mine are the biggest parasites, I've got huge parasites!
Thorin (to Bilbo) "I'm sorry I doubted you."
Bilbo: "I would have doubted me too."
Fili: "Fili." Kili: "And Kili" Fili and Kili: "At your service." Kili: "You must be Mr. Boggins." Bilbo: "No. You've got the wrong house."
Thorin Oakenshield: "Where did you go, if I may ask?" Gandalf: "To look ahead." Thorin Oakenshield: "And what brought you back?" Gandalf: "Looking behind."
Gollum (crawling away from Bilbo, who's pointing Sting at him): "It's got an elfish blade, but it's not an elfs... Not an elfs, no... What is it, precious?!? WHAT IS IT?!?" Bilbo Baggins: "My name... is Bilbo Baggins." Gollum: "...Bagginses? ...What is a 'Bagginses', precious?"
Great Goblin (singing): "Bones will be shattered, necks will be wrung! You'll be beaten and battered, from racks you'll be hung! You will die down here, and never be found... down in the deep of Goblin Town!"
Gandalf (gazing upon the horizon): "Erebor... The Lonely Mountain... the last of the great dwarf kingdoms of Middle Earth..." Thorin Oakenshield: "...Our home..." Balin: "A raven! The birds are returning to the mountain!" Gandalf: "That, my dear boy, is a thrush!" Thorin Oakenshield: "Well, we'll take it as a sign. A good omen." Bilbo Baggins: "You're right. I do believe the worst is behind us." (Camera follows the thrush to The Lonely Mountain, where it noisily pecks at a nut... stirring... Smaug...)
Gandalf (to Trolls):"The Dawn take you all!" Trolls:"Who's that?" "No idea." "Can we eat him too?" (Gandalf strikes rock and the light of dawn turns them to stone)
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Really intense fighting, and at least one beheading!
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not as bad as the LOTR, surprisingly, but the orcs are still kind of scary for younger children. Keep in mind it is rated PG-13!
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Battle scenes between the Dwarf party and Orcs and trolls.
Frightening or Intense Scenes: Its sortta intense but nothing compared to LOTR
