Bilbo is talking to Smaug when the doubts appear. It says in the book that it's because dragons are very persuasive, and he wasn't prepared for it.

The dwarves had begun to think Bilbo should put on his ring and scout the front door. He was getting tired of them and their expectations of him. And finally when the key-hole was revealed none of them thought to use the key! He had to shout at Thorin to get him over to the door in time.

Why did gandalf visit Bilbo Baggins?

I think Gandalf came to Bilbo to either get a 14 man. (Another reply) Gandalf was helping the dwarves, and he believed that Bilbo could help. However, his help to the dwarves was secondary to his main mission: to get information about Sauron. Sauron is mentioned in the Hobbit, as the Necromancer; in the Lord of the Rings, Gandalf confirms that the "Necromancer" was no other than the old enemy, Sauron.

In The Hobbit what does the phrase 'I may be a burglar but I am an honest one' mean?

It may mean that he is a bad person, but he admits it. Bilbo Baggins says this. He is stung by some of the comments of the dwarves. I think that it means that Bilbo may be a thief, but he does not tell lies.

Where do the wood elves take the dwarfs?

Context would be nice. However, by far the most famous work I can think of which has "wood elves" and "dwarves" is The Hobbit, in which the wood elves take the dwarves captive and bring them before their king Thranduil in "his halls" (the "halls" appear to be a sort of cavern system, though possibly that's only the cellars/dungeon in which the dwarves are kept until Bilbo rescues them).

In The Hobbit how does Gandalf rescue Bilbo and the dwarves?

I think he rescues them numerous times, but the one that first comes to my mind is when he rescues them from the Trolls, by keeping them arguing until the sun rose up and turned them all to stone.

What conflicts does Gandalf have?

He doesn't really have too many conflicts, although I think he has some scheduling conflicts. In the Hobbit, if Gandalf had been with Bilbo and the dwarves throughout the whole story, problems could have been more in proportion.

Why was Bilbo unhappy in lake-town?

Bilbo is pretty unhappy throughout most of 'The Hobbit', so I don't know whether you'd say he was more unhappy in Lake-town than any other point. Tolkien mentions several times that Bilbo is hungry and tired and wants to be at home. He catches a cold whilst riding down the river from Mirkwood, so this might make him a little miserable, and I think he might also feel that the dwarves and the men of Lake-town were getting a bit carried away with all the old stories and forgetting that in fact the gold they want is guarded by a dragon, and they still have no way to get him out of the way.

Who is the real leader of the expedition in The Hobbit?

Bilbo i think but im not sure, it might be Thorin or seomthing, maybe gandalf, one of those guys

Who is the real leader in the expedition in The Hobbit?

Bilbo Baggins is the real leader in The Hobbit because he does a veritety of things to make him hero like. For example: Bilbo saves the dwarves from the spiders; he goes partway down the tunnel to Smaug even though its Thorin's treasure; and he even brightens the mood when everyone is feeling down before the go after Smaug by telling them that they can do it. Bilbo is the most mature one and that's why I think he deserves the real hero and the actual leader of the quest in The Hobbit.
