Bilbo slipped on the ring and was invisible.

The wood elves capture the dwarves for trespassing in their lands without permission. They would have captured Bilbo too, if not for the fact that he was wearing a magical ring that made him invisible.

Bilbo rescues the dwarves when they are trapped in the webs of the giant spiders. He is able to avoid capture, then drives the spiders away, before cutting the dwarves free of the sticky strands.

Bilbo becomes very fierce when he kills the spider who was trying to capture him. This leads him to rescue the dwarves by killing many spiders and leading them away. He becomes the dwarves leader, and they follow.

He says that the dwarves wont give Bilbo any gold, and that the Dwarves ar ejust using him.

Bilbo, with all the dwarves' plans, is unhappy because they involve him checking the situation out.

Bilbo was completely enchanted by the dwarves' music the first time they played (and sang) for him.

Yes, the wizard(Gandalf) likes Bilbo very much. It is by the will of Gandalf that Bilbo comes along with the dwarves for the quest. His concern for Bilbo can be seen when all the dwarves come out from goblin's cave but Bilbo remains behind. Gandalf continues to visit Bilbo even after the end of dwarves quest.

There were 13 dwarves. Bilbo was added to the party to make it 14 and avoid having an unlucky number.

The Goblins and Wargs trap Bilbo, Gandalf, and the Dwarves by besieging the mountain and trapping them.

It does not say. Balin was possibly the most fond of Bilbo of all the dwarves - as shown when he is the only one to accompany Bilbo into the tunnel in Erebor.

The Dwarves will get captured by the giant spiders who plan to eat them, Bilbo rescues them, only for them to be captured again by the Elves.

No, Gandalf never told the dwarves that Bilbo was a spy. He was a good friend of Bilbo's, and they trusted each other.

When Bilbo, Gandalf, and the dwarves were trapped in the tree tops by the goblins and wargs, the great eagles arrived and carried them away to safety.

The dwarves have found their treasure, which is what they came for, and for that they are very glad. But Bilbo just wants to be back in his hobbit-hole again!

Gandalf called the eagles. The eagles are huge, and they bore the dwarves, Bilbo, and Gandalf safely away from the fire on their backs.

He kills lots of spiders and then he saves the dwarves the ens

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 distracts the spiders and gets them mad and finally frees them

Bilbo hides the Arkenstone from the dwarves because he knew each one was greedy for the Arkenstone and they might kill each other or harm others for it.

the trolls capture all the dwarves but not Bilbo b/c he his smaller so he hides then the trolls argue about what to do w/ the dwarves and how to eat them then gandalf (who had left them a while ago) comes back and imitates the troll to keep them arguing until morning and they get turned to stone

Bilbo and the dwarves stray from the path because they see a light in the distance. They stray even though they are told many times to keep to the path.

All of the dwarves took their turn carrying Bilbo, throughout the book.
