While in the goblin tunnels, Dori was carrying Bilbo on his back since The Hobbit was too small to keep up on his own. As they ran, a group of goblins quietly followed the company of dwarves and, sneaking up from behind, a goblin grabbed Dori by the foot, tripping him and causing him to drop poor Bilbo. The hobbit bumped his head on a rock and blacked out. A fight broke out between the goblins and dwarves, and then Gandalf shouted, "Follow me everybody!" and the dwarves all ran father into the tunnel with the wizard. Bilbo, being unconscious, was unable to follow and was left behind.

Later, Gandalf was quite upset with Dori for not picking Bilbo up again, but Dori said in defense, "You shouted 'follow me everybody!' and everybody ought to have followed. We thought everybody had."

Meanwhile, Bilbo went on in the tunnel once he gained consciousness, and proceeded to find the Ring and meet Gollum.
