It turns out that Bilbo doesn't defend himself against Thorin's accusation; the dwarf would have hit Bilbo if it were not for Gandalf turning up at the time to stop anything happening to "the burglar." This led to Bilbo stating that dwarves are "better in word than in deed."

Do any members of Thorins company survive the Lord of the Rings?

It is possible that they do, though they are getting very old at that point and do not appear in the movie or book, other than in some of the appendices. Three of them (Thorin, Fili and Kili) do not survive the events in The Hobbit. And we know that Balin, Dwalin, Ori and Oin died in Moria before the events of The Lord of the Rings gets started. Gloin, father of Gimli, was alive for about 15 years after the LotR. Of the others Bombur is known to have been living at the start of the LotR. Otherwise, nothing is recorded by Tolkien.
