Bilbo Baggins has no use for adventures, as he asserts, before heading off into the greatest adventure of his life, replete with goblins, dragons, dwarves, elves, the wizard Gandalf, and gloopy-eyed Gollum.

“We are plain quiet folk and have no use for adventures.  Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things!  Make you late for dinner!  I can’t think what anyone sees in them.”
