Not Bilbo, but it is a Hobbit speaking.

Is it this one?

Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We're in one, or course; but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards.

The second sentence was hardly changed at all so I removed it. I can add back in if there's too little to work on.

Why do you hug him and fence himself like a burglar?

Is it Bard in chapter 15?

A tall man stood forward, dark of hair and grim of face, and he cried: "Hail Thorin! Why do you fence yourself like a robber in his hold? [...]"

I'm reading Ann Leckie's Imperial Radch series, and this sounds exactly like something an AI ship would say.

Heh. I suppose this line does sound a little out of character for the one who says it.

How about this:

"Well, well! If only they all take such a dislike to me and my Sting, this may turn out better than I hoped."

Treebeard to Merry and Pippin: "You can sit on the floor, and I will lie down; that will prevent this drink from rising to my head and sending me to sleep."

That didn't change very much, did it?
