(Scene sets as the riders are watching Viggo in the club house)
Astrid: I don't trust the guy.
Tuffnut: You know he'd actually be pretty fun to hang with, I mean if he weren't trying to kill us all the time.
Ruffnut: You gotta love the way he talks. (Imitating Viggo) Hiccup I'm afraid our time together has come to an end. I must now kill you, if you have no objections.
Tuffnut: Like he's not gonna have objections. And then I'll go: (imitating Viggo) All of your Dragon Riders must also go. With my sincerest apologies.
Fishlegs: I'm with Astrid. This is all just one big game to him Hiccup.
Astrid: Ryker is coming to try to wipe us all out along with his brother. Are we really gonna take any chances with Viggo here?
Hiccup: You guys are right, I've got this.
(Scene changes to Hiccup and Astrid throwing Viggo in a cage)
Viggo: Hiccup, you must reconsider.
Hiccup: I'm sorry Viggo, there's just too much bad blood for us to trust that you'll do anything but try to, well you know.
Viggo: And the Dragon Eye's return, it did nothing to assuade your concerns?
Astrid: (scoffs) Not enough.
Viggo: Ryker will attack this island with my Shellfire dragon I'm afraid he won't stop until all of you are, well, you know.
Hiccup: That's encouraging, as always, Viggo.
Viggo: You see that's just it! I could be of considerable assistance in helping you defend your home, if you would allow me.
Astrid: We'll take that under advisement.
(Twins run in)
Tuffnut: There here, well I mean not here exactly but very soon, soon they will be here. I'm thinking we might need to start getting ready.
Hiccup: Translation Ruff?
Ruffnut: Dragon Hunters. Multiple ships, headed this way
Tuffnut: We didn't wanna bum you out you know what with all the (voice drops to a whisper) deadly disease and everything.
(Hiccup and Astrid exchange looks)
Tuffnut: But we figured is it really our place to deny you the right, to die during battle instead.
Astrid: What in the name of Thor, are you two talking about!?
Ruffnut: The'er both in denial.
Tuffnut: Classic stage one.
Ruffnut: Sad seeing them so vulnerable.
Hiccup: Just make sure he doesn't try to escape.
Tuffnut: We got this my pale, weak, ailing friend.
(Hiccup and Astrid fly off)
Ruffnut: Poor little guy, keeping that stiff upper lip must be such a struggle.
Tuffnut: So, Viggo Vigster, can we bounce something on you.
(scene goes to Hiccup telling everyone the plan)
Hiccup: Alright gang, we have until dawn, they'll be in range by then.
Snotlout: Hiccup I have a thought, and I'll follow me on this, okay come along for the ride, I don't know about you guys, but I'm not completely attached to this place alright, let it burn to the ground. I mean its been fun, great views, but it worth dying over, that's what you have to ask yourself. Alright lets take a vote. Anyone.
Hiccup: Snotlout, if we don't stop them here, where do you think they're going to go next?
Snotlout: Berk, Berk, Berk.
Hiccup: They're going to go to Berk, our Berk. We have to make our stand here, and do whatever it takes to stop them.
Snotlout: Well, that's one way, most pleasant.
Hiccup: Dagur, can you and Shattermaster cover the back side of the edge. With the time you've spent sneaking around, you'll have an advantage.
Dagur: On my way, and uh, I take that as a compliment by the way, you know the sneaking around part. [Chuckles]
Hiccup: Of course you do. Snotlout you and hookfang, get the gronckle Iron walls on the huts. Fishlegs, take the Eruptodon hatchling to the center of the island, and find a safe place to hide.
Snotlout: Wait, he gets to hide!? Well, we can all hide just well.
(The twins enter the room)
Tuffnut: Hey! There's no crying in Maces and Talons. What do you think? Our catchphrase, we already got the Viggo stamp of approval.
Hiccup: That's awesome. Ruff, Tuff, and Heather, you take on the first wave of ships.
Ruffnut: Don't worry your pretty little head, we're on it.
Astrid: I'm not worried.
Ruffnut: Talking to Hiccup. You'll have it before you can say Ultimate Destruction, my friend!
Tuffnut: Uh, are you guys coming?
Heather: Um, I think they need to discuss some finale strategy, alone.
Tuffnut: Do you get the feeling that Heather knows, you know about the ailment.
Ruffnut: I do. How can she be so clam when she knows her comrades are close to death.
Snotlout: How many time do I have to tell you! There not dying! It's gambling, gambling! I've seen it!
(Hiccup and Astrid look at each other and their hands almost touch)
