"Gandalf in the meantime was still standing outside the door, and laughing long but quietly. After awhile he stepped up, and with the spike on his staff scrached a queer sign on the hobbit's beautiful green front-door."
Page 68 paragraph 2
"He guessed as well as he could, and crawled along for a good way, till suddenly his hand met what felt like a tiny ring of cold metal lying on the floor of the tunnel."
Page 39 Paragraph 5
"It was just then that Gandalf came back. But no one saw him. The trolls had just decided to roatst the dwarves now and eat them later- that was Bert's idea, and after a lot of argument they had all agreed to it."
This quote counts as irony because Bilbo had no idea that Gandalf was still outside when the readers did.
This shows that the readers knew Gollum would return to Bilbo after he had gotten his "birthday present" from his island. The readers also knew that Gollum's "birthday present" had been taken when Bilbo found the ring on the ground.
"Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
Thats what Bilbo Baggins hates-
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!"
Page: 12 Paragraph: 5
This shows contrast between Thorin and the other dwarves because all Thorin does is sit in the living room with Gandalf while the other dwarves are making up fun songs and having a good time. The author specifically chose to include this song because he wanted to show the contrast between Thorin and the rest of the dwarves.
This shows that only the readers knew that Gandalf came back when the dwarves, trolls and Bilbo had no clue.
"'My dear Bilbo!' he said.'Something is the matter with you! You are not the hobbit you once were'"
" The Tookishness was wearing off and he was not now quite sure that he was going on any journey in the morning." pg. 27
" To the end of his days Bilbo could never remember how he found himself outside, wothout a hat, a walking-stick, or any money, or anything he usually took with him when he went out..." pg. 30
" Upon one side were the Goblin's and the wild Wolves, and upon the other were Elves, and Men, and Dwarves." pg. 281
J.R.R Tolkien chose to include this because he wanted to emphisize the character development and character changes in Bilbo. He goes from a scared little hobbit who wants nothing more than to be in his home for a while to someone who is willing to sneak into where a dragon is sleeping and steal some treasure. When Gandalf said this to Bilbo, he didn't mean that there was something actually wrong with him, he was talking about how he changed.

"'Come along back to your nice cells, and I will lock you all in again, and you can sit comfortably..."
Page 179
The author chose to put this in the book to show Bilbo's annoyance with the dwarves and to show us, the readers, that Bilbo is getting frustrated that the dwarves are not appreciating what he has done and is doing to rescue them from the wood elves.
The author chose this situation of irony to show the conflict Blibo has with himself due to his mixed family heritage. During the book Bilbo switches between being very cautious like his father and being adventurous like on his mother's side of the family.
This is irony because the elves and dwarves do not particularly like eachother, but end up fighting on the same side though The Elvenking changes his mind not to help the dwarves any farther than the battle, it shows the mutual interest to fight an enemy.
"This is the Arkenstone of Thrain," said Bilbo, "the Heart of the Mountain; and it is also the heart of Thorin. He values it above a river of gold. I give it to you. It will aid you in your bargaining."
This is irony because you may think Bilbo is going to give the Arkenstone to the dwarves because he worked with them to find the treasure, however, he then give it to the elves, this shows Bilbo's atonement to the elves.
