Thranduil: [stares at Bilbo] I know you're there. Why do you linger in the shadows?
[Bilbo thinks he's been found out... ]
Tauriel: [steps out from behind Bilbo] I was coming to report to you.
Thranduil: I thought I ordered that nest to be destroyed not two moons past.
Tauriel: We cleared the forest as ordered, my Lord, but more spiders keep coming up from the South. They are spawning in the ruins of Dol Guldur. If we could kill them at their source...
Thranduil: That fortress lies beyond our borders. Keep our lands clear of those foul creatures. That is your task.
Tauriel: And when we drive them off, what then? Will they not spread to other lands?
Thranduil: Other lands are not my concern. The fortunes of the world will rise and fall, but here in this kingdom, we will endure.
[Bilbo sneaks past him, Thranduil senses something and looks in Bilbo's direction but sees nothing]
Thranduil: Legolas said you fought well today. He's grown very fond of you.
Tauriel: I assure you, my Lord, Legolas thinks of me as not more than a captain of the guard.
Thranduil: Perhaps he did once. Now I'm not so sure.
Tauriel: I do not think that you would allow your son to pledge himself to a lowly Silvan elf.
Thranduil: No... You are right, I would not. Still, he cares about you. Do not give him hope where there is none.
