When do you mean? He was lost, and far from them, when they were caught by Spiders, and he was unconscious due to Elf-magic, but wearing the Ring, when the Elves nabbed them.

Since the Dwarves were separated, it took him some time to find them all. Then, he watched and waited, looking for an opportunity to gather all of them together and get them out without being noticed.

Bilbo wears the One Ring and becomes invisible to avoid capture by the wood elves. Then he infiltrates their fortress and roams around all the while being invisible with help of the Ring. Then he uses the Ring to help the captivated Dwarves escape the prison of Thranduil.

yes because he wants the treasure and to kill the dragon.

He was met by suspicion. His estate was being sold off as he was presumed dead. There were others that never really accepted that he was actually Bilbo Baggins.

If you were being funny, three movies and three books. With the Hobbit being made after them to be an explanation of what Bilbo Baggins' adventure involved.

He threatened to leave the Dwarves. Knowing that Gandalf was powerful and wise, Thorin realised what a dangerous journey it would be if Gandalf was not with them. Gandalf also reminded the Dwarves that they were thirteen, and unless they accepted Bilbo, they would remain that many. Being highly superstitious, the Dwarves shuddered at the thought of setting out for such a perilous journey with a number as evil as 13.

Bilbo is the burglar of the group, and it is his job to go and investigate the scene.In regards to the central themes: heroism, wisdom and nobility we can add the complexities of a noble thief: is this an oxymoron? And in terms of heroes it is ironic that the dwarves were sacked after rather timidly relegating the dirty-work to Bilbo. Do not expect this to change. As far as character-development goes, Bilbo is the central focus. He is growing into Gandalf's glowing pronouncement and the dwarves are‹for now, at least‹being themselves.

The town has assumed that he was dead and his belongings were being auctioned off by his relatives, including his favorite silverware being stolen by the Sackville Baggins.

Bilbo kept from being captured by the Wood Elves in Mirkwood by using The Ring to turn himself invisible. He slipped in after the company of Elves that had captured the other members of The Company (namely, the twelve dwarves) as the Elves were escorting the dwarves into the Elven fortress.

After Bilbo drives away the giant spiders and saves the dwarves from being eaten, they view him with new found respect. He suddenly seems much more capable than they had imagined - a view which he continues to nurture in their adventures ahead.

Bilbo is in the Mirkwood with no food or water. The dwarves have been captured by the elves. He realizes there is only one exit from the palace where the dwarves are being held. He manages to get the dwarves out, but is unable to escape right away himself. When he does get away, he is chased.

Rather secretive and certainly not very glamorous. They left hidden in barrels that were being recycled. Bilbo ended up trying to ride a barrel and not get too wet.

He managed to escape while the dwarves where being caught. Gandalf rescued them by throwing his voice and having them argue with each other.

There were already thirteen dwarves and the only reason they needed another to accompany them was due to thirteen being an unfortunate number. Bilbo was made the fourteenth mainly because of the unlucky number 13.

He was so pleased by their praise at the way that he so cleverly snuck into the camp without being seen, that he decided to keep the Ring out of it for a while.

{| |- | He listened to the guards talking. He had already found the cells of the 12 other dwarves. When they talked of another dwarf being held in the dungeons, he guessed that it had to be Thorin. |}

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.

It occurs on several occasions. In the mountain being chased by the goblins, he falls and is knocked out and the goblins overlook him. In Mirkwood, the spiders capture them and Bilbo has to rescue them. Again, the Elves capture the party and Bilbo escapes, partially due to his small size and his magic ring.

He botched up his opportunity. He tried to pick the pocket of one of the trolls, but the purse spoke up and gave him away. As a result the dwarves ended up being captured.

To a large rock, where they clearly see the Lonely Mountain Or in the Original book, they are taken to a rock; (Beorn calls this his Carrock), but it is near Beorn's house, which is west of mirkwood

There are a number of them. If you cite Biblo as the primary protagonist, and the dwarves as secondary, then the primary antagonist is Smaug, which the lessers being the Tolls, the Goblins of the Misty Mountains, Gollum (only for Bilbo), the Spiders of Mirkwood, Mirkwood itself, the Elves of the Woodland Realm, and the Men of Esgaroth on the Long Lake. At some point, all of them stood opposed to the Dwarves and Bilbo on their quest. Each of them is very different in their motivations too. The Trolls: Mostly motivated by hunger, which made them difficult to deal with for Bilbo. They were dim-witted, though, which was how Gandalf was able to trick them. The Goblins: The goblins were belligerent and confrontational, but that's their nature. Things might have gone differently had they not seen the Elf weapons and Gandalf not killed The Great Goblin. In the later parts of the book, they are motivated by revenge. Gollum: In the Hobbit, Gollum is motivated by hunger and his love of the Ring. AS a result, he was a conniving and deceitful. He planned to kill Bilbo no matter who won the contest of riddles. After losing the ring, he becomes unstable and more violent. Mirkwood: the forest is presented as almost being alive it its own right. It was dark, foreboding and didn't seem to want to let the Dwarves escape. The SPiders: the spiders, also motivated by hunger, were primarily used as a means to establish Bilbo as a capable member of the party. They were aggressive and evil. The Elves: The Elves just wanted to be left alone. They saw the Dwarves intrusion as an attack - or begging. When the Dwarves fled Erebor, they were well known to be beggars. Very few trusted them, and no one less than Elves. The Men: The men saw the Dwarves return as an good omen, since most of them were descendants of the lost town of Dale. They assumed the Dwarves knew how to get rid of the dragon. After the Dragon was slain, they felt that the Dwarves should compensate them, but the Dwarves were too greedy.

Because during the unexpected party, Thorin promised Bilbo 1/14th payment of the treasure in return for Bilbo's services as a 'thief'. Though Bilbo did not do much in the way of being a thief, he did save the dwarves from Thranduil, as well as help them gain entrance into the mountain. They also wanted him on the journey because it would have been unlucky to take on their journey with 13 members. At the end of their adventures, Bilbo had obviously earned his 1/14th share, so Thorin fulfilled his promise and sent Bilbo home with a chest of treasure (though it is hinted later on in LotR that Bilbo ended up receiving more).

Being a novel and rather a big one 'The Hobbit' has several plots and minor plots. However the most important one could be # 'Daring Enterprise' - as the Dwarves try to retake their ancient kingdom # 'Escaping' - as Bilbo Baggins talks with Smaug after being caught trying to loot more treasure. As Bilbo's proper Baggin's side contends with his adventurous Tookish side, he learns to love elves and mountains and adventure, and as a result loses respect in the proper hobbit community (aside from the other Tooks, of course)

being the ring bearer and fighting
