  Later in the story Bilbo bids farewell to the dwarves saying, “Well, Merry People!...your lullaby would waken a drunken goblin! Yet I thank you.”They replied, “And your snores would waken a stone dragon—yet we thank you,” they answered with laughter.
  A third time in in The Fellowship of the Ring. Bilbo embarks on one last adventure. This goodbye is most crucial. Not only does he leave Frodo with a somber farewell, but he also parts with the ring of power. At this moment is Gandalf allowed to persuade Frodo into destroying it.
