Amazingly convincing portrayal of Gollum. And this is a wonderful moment caught out of time. I really can see this fitting neatly into canon as Bilbo asks about eggs and Gollum tries desperately to remember. It's intriguing to see just how much of Sméagol Bilbo was able to bring to the surface. I think Slinker's memories are stronger than Stinker anticipates. Also interesting is how his thoughts kept straying to the Ring in the beginning, but as Gollum went further back, Sméagol became stronger and thoughts of the Ring began to fade away. Very nice touch and an excellent job of showing just how Gollum remembered the answer to the riddle about eggs.

That sounded just like Gollum, especially the many inserts of "Precious", and it fits nicely into the riddle contest in The Hobbit story.
