Hiccup (v.o.)
Here on Berk, we've always done things one way: the Viking Way. Since the dragons came, the Viking Way has become, well, the Hard Way. Unfortunately some people, like my father, still refuse to change.
Gobber
It's that rogue dragon again. That's the second boat this week he's destroyed.
Stoick
Well, we lost another whole catch. We could have saved it if we'd gotten there sooner.
Hiccup
Well, I know how you could have gotten there sooner.
Stoick
Here we go again.
Hiccup
If you'd flown there on a dragon you could have been there in five minutes instead of two hours. And you might even have been able to chase that rogue dragon away for good.
Stoick
As the chief of Berk, I do things the Viking Way. Not the Dragon Way.
Hiccup
Well, the Viking way is costing us a lot of fish and almost as many boats.
Gobber
The boy's got a point. If you were on a dragon you could protect this island from a lot of things. Even Alvin.
Hiccup
Right! You-You could use a dragon to--
Stoick
You're right Gobber. Alvin knows we have dragons. He'll be back.
Gobber
You saw what those dragons did. They had Alvin on the run. Imagine if you were the one commanding them.
Stoick
I'm listening.
Hiccup
But clearly not to me.
Gobber
I can see it know. A proud chief ruling his domain above aboard a fearsome fire-breathing reptile. Ooooh, it gives me goosebumps.
Hiccup
That's what I've been trying to--
Stoick
Gobber's right.
Stoick
I need to learn to fly. When do we start the lessons?
Hiccup
I don't know, shouldn't we ask Gobber?
Gobber
Eh, I don't really have a preference, but sooner is always better. Don'tcha think?
Hiccup
Alright, I've made a new stirrup so you'll be able to control Toothless.
Stoick
You hear that? It's me that's supposed to be controlling you.
Hiccup
Whoa, whoa, Dad, uh, before you get on a dragon you've got to show him he can trust you.
Stoick
He already trusts me. I'm his chief!
Hiccup
Uh, it's very simple. Just give me your hand.
Stoick
I didn't come here to hold hands, Hiccup.
Hiccup
It's okay, bud.
Hiccup
You feel that?
Stoick
Yeah. Still dry and scaly.
Hiccup
That's not what I meant.
Stoick
Can I get on him now?
Stoick
Alright, let's get on with this madness.
Hiccup
We'll start out nice and slowly. Just give him a little nudge when you wanna--
Hiccup
I SAID NUDGE!
Stoick
That was my nudge!
Hiccup
Just remember, the tail controls everything.
Stoick
I know that.
Hiccup
Then why are you heading for that rock?!
Stoick
Because you're distracting me!
Hiccup
Just let out the--
Stoick
TAIL! I KNOW!
Hiccup
Left! LEFT! No, no, the other left!
Stoick
Dragon's fault.
Hiccup
You gonna blame that on the dragon too, Dad?
Stoick
Yep.
Hiccup
SLOW DOWN!
Stoick
I'm trying!
Stoick
See?
Hiccup
Actually, no. No, I had my eyes closed!
Hiccup
You're coming in too hard! Open the tail! With your foot!
Stoick
I'm opening the tail!
Hiccup
That's my leg, Dad!
Hiccup
I am so sorry.
Hiccup
Dad, wait. Where are you going?
Stoick
Nah, I'm done with this, Hiccup! I've got a village to look after.
Stoick
I'll need a ride home.
Stoick
This isn't the way home.
Hiccup
Just sit back and enjoy the ride! We are taking the scenic route!
Stoick
Right now my lunch is taking the scenic route into my throat!
Hiccup
Dad, just think about how much easier your chiefing can be on the back of a dragon.
Stoick
Well, I prefer to be down on the-- Wait. What's going on over there?
Stoick
Some genius has been yak-tipping again.
Tuffnut
Be quiet. Maybe they don't see us.
Stoick
Make that geniuses. I want every one those yaks back on its feet!
Hiccup
Nice chiefing, Dad! Let's see what else we can get done today!
Hiccup
Toothless, fire!
Stoick
Fire again, dragon.
Hiccup
Dad, the boars are gone.
Stoick
Who cares? I like the sound it makes.
Hiccup
Take us up, bud. There's something else I want you to see.
Stoick
Whoa. I've spent my entire life on Berk. Climbed its hills, explored its forests, swam its waters. I've travelled every inch, but I never thought I'd see it like this.
Hiccup
It's beautiful, isn't it?
Stoick
No, it's more than that Hiccup. Look at them. All of my people. Everyone is safe. It's a good feeling.
Hiccup
Toothless? Toothless? DAD?!
Astrid
Was that--?
Fishlegs
Unexpected? Disturbing?
Astrid
Yep.
Hiccup
Uh, Dad, what are you doing?
Stoick
Kicking butt and taking names, that's what!
Hiccup
Uh, on Toothless?
Stoick
Oh, we've been all over Berk. Chiefing has never been so easy.
Hiccup
Yeah, but Dad, uh, Toothless is my dragon.
Stoick
You picked a good one. Just came in to grab my hatchet. We're helping Jorgensen break down a fence.
Hiccup
Yeah, that's, that's great, but you need to understand that Toothless is--
Stoick
Oh, you're right. I don't need my hatchet. Toothless can just blow that fence down with a fireball. Ha-ha! Up, dragon.
Hiccup
Don't worry, bud. I can fix this.
Hiccup
So, see ya there, Toothless. I really hope...
Viking
Thank you, Stoick!
Stoick
Well done!
Viking
Thank you, Stoick!
Stoick
Come on, Toothless, faster!
Stoick
Attaboy!
Stoick
Same time tomorrow, Toothless?
Hiccup
You see that? That's what it looks like to be ridden all day by a four-hundred-pound man.
Astrid
At least you got your Dad on a dragon.
Hiccup
Yeah, now I just need to figure out how to get him off one.
Astrid
Why don't you just give him the ol' "Honey and The Hatchet"?
Astrid
You know, you tell him something he wants to hear, that's the "Honey" part, before you hit him in the head with something he doesn't. You know, "The Hatchet".
Hiccup
Why does your advice always involve weapons?
Stoick
Toothless? Toothless?
Stoick
Where's Toothless?
Hiccup
Ah, I don't know, but you... Look great, Dad! What is it? Are you, d-did you do something with your beard?
Stoick
Alright, you've given me the honey, now just give me the hatchet.
Hiccup
Look, Dad, you can't just keep taking Toothless. He's mine.
Stoick
Alright. That seems fair. So, find me one.
Hiccup
Uh, sorry?
Stoick
Find me a dragon as good as Toothless. That shouldn't be so hard for the Head of the Berk Dragon Training Academy.
Hiccup
The finest dragon species on the island. They're all represented at this Academy.
Snotlout
But the Monstrous Nightmare is the only one with the brawn and prestige for men of our stature. Hop on board. Feel the Monstrous Nightmare difference. And on those cold winter nights, its whole body heats up. Just enough to keep you cozy. Lemme warm him up for you.
Stoick
Daaahhh!!
Snotlout
Now should I put you down for one? They come in an assortment of colors.
Astrid
Since she's beautiful, people think she's not tough. But you should never underestimate me. Uh, her--uh, us.
Stoick
Well, she is a beauty.
Astrid
Be careful with the--!
Snotlout
Monstrous Nightmare's looking a little better now, huh, Chief?
Stoick
Next!
Stoick
Next!
Fishlegs
Lemme tell you, what you're really looking for is loyalty. A dragon who will be there for you no matter what. The last face you see at night and the first face you see in the morning. Warming your bed when it's cold outside, a shoulder to cry on when the world has turned its back on you. How could you not love a Gronckle?
Stoick
Sorry, son. But I'm looking for a dragon. Not a mother.
Stoick
I haven't seen anything that can hold a candle to a Night Fury.
Hiccup
Me neither! But Toothless is the only Night Fury on Berk. And he's mine.
Gobber
Stoick! Another boat is being attacked! It's the rogue dragon again.
Stoick
Let's go!
Hiccup
Oh, right... What was I thinking?
Hiccup
At least he blocks the wind...
Hiccup
I don't believe it. A Thunderdrum! They say it gets its power from Thor himself.
Stoick
Fire a warning shot. Let him know we mean business.
Hiccup
Toothless! Plasma blast!
Hiccup
I think we scared him off, but we've got to get everyone out of here.
Stoick
Come on, lads! We'll escort you back to shore. You'll have no more--
Bucket
No more what?!
Hiccup
Dad!
Mulch
Uh, Stoick can swim, right?
Stoick
Oh, he's a fighter! He's got spunk! This is the one, Hiccup! I've found my dragon! Now all you have to do is train him for me.
Hiccup
[To the Thunderdrum] Sorry about the muzzle.
Stoick
Alright, let's get me on his back. Times a-wastin'.
Hiccup
[To the Thunderdrum, referring to the muzzle] Now we just got to get one in his size.
Stoick
What was that?
Hiccup
Nothing.
Hiccup
Look. You have to approach him properly, Dad. Especially a dragon like this. He is one of the most powerful dragons I've ever seen.
Stoick
That's why I picked him. They say his roar gets its power from Thor himself! He's the God of Thunder, you know.
Hiccup
So I've heard. Still. You have to let the dragon know you're a friend.
Stoick
A friend, huh? Oh! Like me and Gobber?
Hiccup
Yeah, perfect! What did you do when you two met?
Stoick
"That's my wife you're talking to, you one-legged lout!"
Hiccup
Not exactly the approach I had in mind. Dad, what's real important is that you let him know that he can trust you. You have to make eye contact.
Stoick
Uh-huh. Sure.
Hiccup
Stay calm. Be gentle. And you'll know you've formed a bond when he bows his head to let you climb on his back.
Hiccup
Hey, hey! Whoa! What happened to trust?
Stoick
Talk to him! He's the one who tried to take off my hand!
Hiccup
Would you stop it, Dad? This is not bonding.
Stoick
Ah! You got to show these beasts who's boss!
Stoick
Look at that, I'm on his back! Any questions?
Hiccup
Oh, too many to ask.
Stoick
Wah-ho! Easy! Don't you know who I am?
Hiccup
I talk to him, but my dad just doesn't listen! It's like I'm wasting my breath.
Gobber
I got it!
Hiccup
Thank you. At least somebody understands me...
Gobber
I meant this. Nasty.
Gobber
Now what were you saying?
Hiccup
Ugh! My father!
Gobber
Right! Stoick.
Gobber
Let me explain something about fathers and sons. It's a father's job to listen to his son without ever letting on that he's heard a word.
Stoick (o.s.)
Hiccup!
Hiccup
Dad, what happened?
Stoick
Ah, the beast threw me off and flew off to Thor-knows-where.
Hiccup
Well, can you blame him? All you ever did was fight him!
Stoick
Dah! He loved it!
Hiccup
Yeah, apparently not.
Stoick
We can stand here arguing, or we can go get my dragon.
Stoick
Alright! We have to fan out and cover every part of the island!
Hiccup
Ruffnut and Tuffnut, you take--
Stoick
You take the West side!
Tuffnut
You got it, Chief.
Hiccup
Can anybody even see me back here?!
Stoick
WEST SIDE!
Stoick
Snotlout, to the North side!
Astrid
Come on, Fishlegs. We'll take the East side.
Fishlegs
But-but it's allergy season.
Astrid
Fishlegs!
Fishlegs
Not me. It's her.
Stoick
Well, your friends sure are an odd bunch, but they sure know what they're doing on those dragons.
Hiccup
Thank you. I think...
Hiccup
Okay, when we find the dragon you might wanna think about approaching him...differently. Obviously he doesn't like being pushed around so--
Stoick
There he is!
Hiccup
And, once again, not a word goes through...
Hiccup
Settle down, bud.
Stoick
Let me handle this.
Stoick
This dragon's mine.
Hiccup
Dad!
Stoick
There's another Thunderdrum in there.
Hiccup
He's hurt.
Stoick
Well, he-he's protecting his friend. That's why he's been taking all those fish. Go get the others. And tell Gobber to get ready.
Hiccup
Dad, I can't just leave you here!
Stoick
Go!
Stoick
Looks like it's just you and me, big fella.
Stoick
I want to help, trust me.
Stoick
Ah, they smell the blood of your wounded friend.
Stoick
Aww look at us! We're bonded!
Hiccup
What. Happened?
Stoick
Ah, we battled a few boars, did a little bonding.
Hiccup
You?
Stoick
Of course! There's something you should know about dragons. It's all about trust.
Hiccup
So you actually heard that?
Stoick
Yes. I just said it. I listen.
Stoick
Take good care of him. He's a friend.
Hiccup (v.o.)
My dad still does things the Viking Way. Fortunately, Toothless and I showed him that the Viking Way can also be the Dragon Way.
