Remember when Bilbo tried to pick the troll's pocket, and there was some kind of critter in there guarding the troll's wallet that squeaked " 'Ere! Oo are You!"? What was that critter?

Well

Talking wallets?

I always imagined the troll to say 'Ere who are you'?

And that 'trolls wallets being the problem' were because trolls were difficult to mug.

Anyone have a quote?

I wish I could get my wife a wallet like that, and set it to react after a certain amount of money has been spent.:D

hmm how funny!

I always thought that it was the troll who said that. I guess I didn't read it carefully enough. Thanks for posting this, I probably would have never noticed!

This is one of those things that you dont remeber as much as you would Bilbo sneaking out of the cave but it is a interesting little tid bit.

Kinda like that random fox who walks by the hobbits in the woods in FOTR.

Trolls seem a lot more manlike in Hobbit and LOTR than the movie. Anothere example of overkill.

I didn't recall if it was the wallet or the pocket that spoke, I never read it as the troll. Fine moment, totally lost in the movie adaptation of course.
