But now it starts to swoop down on them
 
At first, the dragon just goes straight up into the air, but then it turns and the hobbits realize they need to scramble madly to get out of the way!
 

 

 


  Smaug swoops...
 


...down on Bilbo

  ...terrified hobbits flee...
 


Smaug 'attacks', then flies off...
 
...to explode far away, across 'The Water'

Frodo and Bilbo
 
...to the delight of all!

My dear friends.  Today is my eleventy-first birthday.  ...
Eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among
such excellent and admirable hobbits

wily rascal
 
Master Proudfoot, distant relation

Master Proudfoot (ProudFEET),
distant relation

I don't know half of you half as well as I should like...



 
I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve
 
 
Very confused Hobbits
 
I've put this off for far too
long.  This is the end, I'm
going now.  I bid you all
a very fond farewell.
Good-bye
