The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (2013)
Bard the Bowman: If you awaken that beast, it will destroy us all!

Bard the Bowman: You have no right, no right to enter that mountain!
Thorin Oakenshield: I have the only right.

Bard the Bowman: All of you! Listen to me! You must listen! Have you forgotten what happened to Dale? Have you forgotten those who died in the firestorm? And for what purpose? The blind ambition of a Mountain King, so riveted by greed he cannot see beyond his own desire!

Bard the Bowman: The Lord of Silver Fountains / The King of Carven Stone / The King Beneath the Mountain / shall come into his own. / And the bells shall ring in gladness / at the Mountain King's return. / But all shall fail in sadness, / and the Lake will shine and burn...

Percy: [When Bard approaches Laketown in his ship] Halt! Goods inspection. Papers please!... Oh, it's you, Bard!
Bard the Bowman: Morning, Percy.
Percy: Anything to declare?
Bard the Bowman: Nothing. But I am cold and tired, and ready for home.
Percy: You and me both.

Bard the Bowman: I was born and bred on these waters, Master Dwarf. If I wanted to kill you, I would not do it here.

[hands the Black Arrow to his son]
Bard the Bowman: Keep it secret! Keep it safe!

Bard the Bowman: [upon hearing Smaug's arrival] Listen to me! All of you! Do you not see what is coming?

Bard the Bowman: Death! That is what you will bring upon us. Dragon-fire and ruin.


The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014)
[From trailer]
Bard: Will you have peace, or war?
Thorin Oakenshield: I will have war!

Bard: [to Thorin] You brought upon them only ruin and death.

Bard: [to Thranduil after failing to negotiate with Thorin] He will give us nothing.
Thranduil: Such a pity. Still, you tried.
Bard: I do not understand. Why would he risk open war upon his kingdom?
Thranduil: [unsheathes his sword] It is fruitless to reason with a dwarf. They only understand one thing.

[the night before the Elves are set to attack Erebor, Bilbo brings the Arkenstone to Thranduil's tent]
Thranduil: The King's Jewel...
Bard: And worth a King's ransom... how is this yours to give?
Bilbo Baggins: I took it as my one-fourteenth share of the treasure.
[Gandalf suppresses a smile]
Bard: Why do this? You owe us nothing.
Bilbo Baggins: I'm not doing it for you. I know that dwarves can be obstinate and pigheaded and difficult. They're suspicious and secretive, with the *worst* manners you can possibly imagine. But they are also brave and kind, and loyal to a fault. I've grown very fond of them, and I would save them if I can.

Dain: Good morning. How are we all? I have a wee proposition, if you don't mind giving me a few moments of your time. Would you consider... JUST SODDING OFF! All ye, right now!
Bard: Stand fast!
Gandalf: Come now, Lord Dain.
Dain: Gandalf the Grey. Tell this rabble to leave or I'll water the ground with their blood.
Gandalf: There is no need for war between Dwarves, Men, and Elves. A legion of Orcs march on the mountain. Stand your army down.
Dain: I will not stand down before any elf! Not least this faithless Woodland sprite! He wishes nothing but ill upon my people! If he chooses to stand between me and my kin, I'll split his pretty head open! See if he's still smirking then!
Thranduil: He's clearly mad like his cousin.
Dain: Ya hear that, lads? We're on! Let's give these bastards a good hammering!

[Bard walks up to a destroyed entrance of Erebor]
Thorin Oakenshield: [slides into view] I am listening.
Bard: On behalf of the people of Laketown, I ask that you honor your pledge. A share of the treasure so that they might rebuild their lives.
Thorin Oakenshield: I will not trade with any man while an armed host lies before my door.
Bard: That armed host will attack this mountain if we do not come to terms.
Thorin Oakenshield: Your threats do not sway me.
Bard: [after a short pause] What of your conscience? Does it not tell you our cause is just? My people offered you help. And in return you brought upon them only ruin and death.
Thorin Oakenshield: When did the men of Laketown come to our aid but for the promise of rich reward?
Bard: A bargain was struck!
Thorin Oakenshield: A BARGAIN? What choice did we have but to barter our birthrights for blankets and food? To ransom our future in exchange for our freedom? You call that a fair trade? Tell me, Bard the dragon slayer, why should I honor such terms?
Bard: Because you gave us your word. Does that mean nothing?
[Thorin slides out of view, and sees the rest of the Company lined up behind him, looking expectant]
Thorin Oakenshield: Begone, 'ere our arrows fly!
[Bard leaves in disgust]

Bard: What news from the night watch?
Alfrid: All quiet, sir. Nothing escapes me.
Bard: Except an army of Elves, it would seem.

[Thranduil's army of Mirkwood Elves arrives in Dale]
Bard: My lord Thranduil. We did not look to see you here.
Thranduil: I heard you needed aid.
[a carriage full of food approaches and the citizens of Lake-town rush to the carriage in relief]
Bard: You have saved us. I do not know how to thank you.
Thranduil: Your gratitude is misplaced. I did not come on your behalf. I've came to reclaim something of mine.


The Hobbit (1977) (TV)
Bard: Black arrow! You've never failed me, and I've always recovered you. I had you from my father, and he from of old. If ever you came from the forges of the true King under the Mountain, go now and speed well!

[as the Goblins arrive]
Thorin: Oh great Elf King, my truest friend and ally, we must join our forces against this common scourge!
Elvenking: But of course, oh noble King Under the Mountain. Your people are like brothers unto mine.
Bard: And my men and all their weapons are as one with yours! Together we will vanquish the fell foe...
Everyone: TOGETHER!
Bilbo Baggins: Thorin is correct, I simply do not understand war...
