The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)
Bilbo Baggins: I did not come to steal from you, O Smaug the Unassessably Wealthy. I merely wanted to gaze upon your magnificence, to see if you really were as great as the old tales say. I did not believe them.
Smaug: [strikes a pose] And do you, NOW?
Bilbo Baggins: Truly, tales and songs fall utterly short of your enormity, O Smaug the Stupendous...
Smaug: Do you think flattery will keep you alive?
Bilbo Baggins: No, no...
Smaug: No, indeed!

Smaug: Well, thief! I smell you, I hear your breath, I feel your air. Where are you?
[moves in Bilbo's direction]
Smaug: Where are you?
[Bilbo runs, but Smaug hears his footsteps across the gold and follows]
Smaug: Come now, don't be shy... step into the light.

Smaug: There is something about you. Something you carry, something made of gold... but far more PRECIOUS...
[Bilbo is assaulted by Sauron's eye and pulls off the ring]
Smaug: [sees him] There you are, Thief in the Shadows!

Thorin Oakenshield: Here! You witless worm!
Smaug: YOU!
Thorin Oakenshield: I'm taking back what you stole.
Smaug: You will take NOTHING from me, dwarf. I laid low your warriors of old. I instilled terror in the hearts of men. I AM KING UNDER THE MOUNTAIN!
Thorin Oakenshield: This is not your kingdom! These are dwarf lands. This is dwarf gold! And we will have our revenge!

Smaug: You think you can deceive me, Barrel-Rider? You have come from Lake Town! This is some sort of scheme hatched between these filthy dwarves and those miserable tub-trading Lakemen, those snivelling cowards with their Longbows and Black Arrows! Perhaps it is time I paid them a visit!
Bilbo Baggins: Oh, no... This isn't their fault! Wait! You can not go to Lake Town!
Smaug: You care about them, do you? Good! Then you can watch them DIE!

[Smaug is smothered with a deluge of molten gold]
Smaug: [rises up] Revenge? REVENGE? I will show you revenge!
[takes flight towards Lake Town]
Smaug: I am fire! I am... death!

[Smaug has been keeping the Arkenstone away from Bilbo throughout their talk, however he lets it fall within reach of Bilbo]
Smaug: I am almost tempted to let you take it, if only to see Oakenshield suffer, watch it destroy him, watch it corrupt his heart and drive him mad... But I think not. I think our little game ends here!

Smaug: Did you think I did not know this day would come, that a pack of canting dwarves would come crawling back to the Mountain?

Smaug: You seem familiar with my name, but I don't remember smelling your kind before. Who are you and where do you come from, may I ask?
Bilbo Baggins: I come from under the hill...
Smaug: Underhill?
Bilbo Baggins: ...and under hills and over hills my paths lead. And through the air! I am he who walks unseen!
Smaug: Impressive. What else do you claim to be?
[leans forward to smell Bilbo]
Bilbo Baggins: L-Luck-Wearer... R-Riddle-Maker...
Smaug: Lovely titles... Go on.
Bilbo Baggins: Barrel-Rider!
Smaug: Barrels! Now that is interesting!

Smaug: And what about your little dwarf friends? Where are they hiding?
Bilbo Baggins: Dwarves... No. No dwarves here. You've got that all wrong.
Smaug: Oh, I don't think so, Barrel-Rider! They sent you in here to do their dirty work, while they skulk about outside!
Bilbo Baggins: Truly, you are mistaken, O Smaug Chiefest and Greatest of All Calamities...
Smaug: You have nice manners for a thief, and a LIAR! I know the smell and taste of dwarves, no one better!

Smaug: The King Under the Mountain is dead! I took his throne, I ate his people like a wolf among sheep! I kill where I wish, WHEN I wish! My armour is iron, no blade can pierce me!

Smaug: It's Oakenshield. That filthy Dwarvish usurper! He sent you in here for the Arkenstone, didn't he?
Bilbo Baggins: No no no no no, I have no idea what you're talking about...
Smaug: Don't bother denying it! I guessed his foul purpose some time ago! But it matters not. Oakenshield's quest will fail. A darkness is coming. It will spread to every corner of the land!

Smaug: You are being used, Thief in the Shadows. You were only ever a means to an end. The coward Oakenshield has weighed the value of your life and found it worth nothing...
Bilbo Baggins: No. No! You're lying!

Smaug: What did he promise you, a share of the treasure? As if it was his to give. I will not part with a single coin! Not one piece of it!

[Bilbo observes a bare patch on Smaug's chest]
Bilbo Baggins: So it is true, the Black Arrow found its mark...
Smaug: What did you say?

Smaug: My teeth are swords. My claws are spears. My wings are a HURRICANE!

Smaug: [to Bilbo] You have good manners for a thief and a LIAR!

[Smaug is about to kill Thorin]
Thorin Oakenshield: [to Bilbo] NOW!
Bilbo Baggins: [jumping and grabbing the dwarvian lever] Argh!
[water spews out of the spouts]
Smaug: [roars; ready to breath fire] Arrgh...
[the water hits Smaug, cooling him off and distinguishing the fire in his lungs]

Smaug: [searching for the invisible Bilbo; menacingly] Well... Thief! I can smell you... I can hear your breath, I can feel your breath... Where-Are-You?
[comes really close to Bilbo, who begins to lose his nerve]
Smaug: Where are you?
[Out of fright, Bilbo takes off running. Smaug chases after him. Bilbo hides behind one of the columns]
Smaug: [calmly] Come now... Don't be shy. Step into the light.
[creeps towards Bilbo's hiding place]
Smaug: There is something you carry... Something made of gold. Except only much... more... Precious...
[Bilbo is assaulted by Sauron's eye and quickly takes the ring off. He sees Smaug's piercing eye in front of him. Bilbo gasps, startled]
Smaug: There you are... thief in the shadows.
Bilbo Baggins: I-I didn't come to steal, Smaug the inaccessibly wealthy. I only wanted to gaze upon your magnificence, and what the old tales say is true.
[whimpers]
Bilbo Baggins: But I did not believe them!
[Smaug fluidly slinks away and does a pose of grandiose]
Smaug: [proudly; his voice resonating] And DO YOU NOW?
Bilbo Baggins: [in awe] Yes... Yes, what the stories said is true.

Smaug: [charging towards the dwarves; roar-like] YOU WILL BUUUUURRRRRRNNNNNNNNNN!


The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)
Smaug: [to Bard] Is that your child? You cannot save him from the fire! He will BURN!

[Smaug descends upon the blazing Lake-Town and looks toward Bard, who has been shooting arrows at him and now has the Black Arrow in hand]
Smaug: WHO are YOU, that would stand against ME?
[Bard grabs his bow but finds it broken]
Smaug: Now that is a pity. What will you do now, Bowman? You are forsaken. No help will come!

Smaug: [to Bard] Tell me, WRETCH, how now shall you challenge me? You have nothing left but your DEATH!


The Hobbit (1977) (TV)
Smaug: Be done with your riddles. What else brought you, lake man?
Bilbo Baggins: Revenge!
Smaug: Revenge?
Bilbo Baggins: Surely you must realize that your success has made you some bitter enemies.
Smaug: [evil chuckling] Revenge? You? HA! I am SMAUG! I kill when I wish! I am strong, strong, STRONG! My armor is like tenfold shields! My teeth are like swords! My claws, spears! The shock of my tail, a thunderbolt! My wings, a hurricane! And my breath... DEATH! Well? Where are your riddles now?

[Bilbo has entered the Lonely Mountain, which once housed a kingdom of dwarves, but which is now Smaug's lair - Smaug is sleeping on a hill of gems and other riches, but wakes up when Bilbo reaches the heart of the mountain]
Smaug: Well, thief? I smell you, I feel your air - and I hear your breath. Come along! Help yourself; there's plenty, AND to spare.
Bilbo Baggins: [who is invisible] Oh... thank you, Smaug the Magnificent! I did not come for wealth. I wish only to have a look at you, and see if you are truly as great as tales say; I did not believe them!
Smaug: [flattered] ... Do you now?
Bilbo Baggins: They fall utterly short of reality, King SMAUG Under the Mountain!
Smaug: Hmmm... You have nice manners for a thief - and a LIAR.
