(Scene sets as the riders are watching Viggo in the clubhouse)
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 assuage 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: They're 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, let's 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 calm when she knows her comrades are close to death.
Snotlout: How many time do I have to tell you! They're not dying! It's gambling, gambling! I've seen it!
(Hiccup and Astrid look at each other and their hands almost touch)
(scene goes to Hunter ships and shellfire)
Ryker: Remember, I don't want prisoners. I want bodies.
Hunter: Ready? (Hunters bang hammers on Shellfire)
(Shellfire shoots a blast as the Riders are preparing)
Hiccup: Everyone to their huts. We have to wait out the initial attack.
(Scene shifts to the different riders huts and Viggo)
Tuffnut: Hey! Chicken!
Ruffnut: So whats wrong with your hut?
Snotlout: I was so busy doing everyone else's hut that I forgot about mine!
Hiccup: I know bud, this is no fun for me either.
Astrid: I hope the others are okay.
Heather: Astrid, I'm sure Hiccup is safe.
Fishlegs: You see little guy, were safe here, nothing can get near us. (whimpers) Except for that.
(Scene goes to clubhouse)
Snotlout: Okay, I'm not sure about you, but there's no way I'm sitting through that again. We have dragons, we should be out there sinking their ships.
Hiccup: The fire isn't coming from the ships, it's coming from the Shellfire.
(Viggo enters Room)
Viggo: I hate to be the one to say I told you so but-
Hiccup: How did you get out!?
Viggo: My friend Snotlout was good enough to allow me to use the facilities.
Hiccup: Oh he did, did he?
Snotlout: What. He scares me. And besides when you got to go, you got to go, and who knows that better than me?
Viggo: Hiccup, you must allow me to assist you for the sake of us all. The Shellfire range is over a mile, Ryker is using ships, my ships to be exact to protect it.
Astrid: Then we need to get passed the ships.
Hiccup: We better do it quickly. Ruff, Tuff, your up.
Ruffnut: We're on it.
Snotlout: Hey! What about me?
Hiccup: Just look after your new best friend there. (gestures to Viggo)
Snotlout: Where's the fun it that!?
Hiccup: It's not supposed to be fun. And I don't care how scary he is, do not let him out of your sight again.
(Scene goes to Hiccup and the Riders attacking the ships)
(Scene goes to The Shell Fire fires back at the Dragon Riders)
