Transcript

[A yak disappears in a cloud of dirt, followed by several sheep. Ominous cracks appear suddenly appear in the ground.]

Hiccup: (v.o.)
Everybody has a past. Even dragons. And sometimes, the past can come back to haunt them.

[Toothless growls at the ground while Hiccup sleeps.]

Hiccup
Ugh, Toothless, go back to sleep.
Hiccup (v.o.)
And when it does, you're gonna need to be there for them.

[Toothless sniffs and then growls angrily at the hole.]

Hiccup
Whoa, hey! Come on, it's just a hole, bud.
Bucket
It's not just a hole! It's like an underground village!
Mulch
Bucket! There you are. I've been lookin' for you all night!
Bucket
Sorry, Mulch. But I think I finally found it: My happy place!

[Bucket is thrown out of the hole in a cloud of dust.]

Stoick
Are you alright, Bucket?
Bucket
Not so happy anymore.
Stoick
What happened?
Bucket
Something pushed me out! Something's down there. Something big!

[Toothless growls and jumps down the hole.]

Astrid
What is that sound?
Gobber
Eh, whatever it is, it's giving me the willies.

[Whispering Death shoots out of the hole and hovers over the Vikings.]

Snotlout
Whoooooaaaaa, look at the size of that thing!
Fishlegs
Do I have to?!
Astrid
Dragons! Everyone!
Snotlout
Uh, I don't like the way it's eyeballing me.
Fishlegs
Uh, don't worry, it's not just you.
Snotlout
Thanks, big relief!

[The Whispering Death dives back into the ground.]

Astrid
What... was... that?
Tuffnut
Whatever it was, I want one!
Fishlegs
If I had to take a guess, I'd say that was a Whispering Death.
Tuffnut
Whoa, great name. So much better than Zippleback.
Bucket
Where'd it go? Why's it here? What's it gonna do to us?! WHY AREN'T YOU SLAPPING ME TO SNAP ME OUT OF THIS?!
Mulch
Because I'm scared, too, Bucket.

[The Whispering Death bursts from the ground making a fresh hole.]

Gobber
Ah, it looks angry. Why don't you do that think where you touch its nose and feed it grass?
Hiccup
Okaaaay! Uh, Fishlegs, what do we know about the Whispering Death?
Fishlegs
Boulder Class; Razor sharp teeth, incredibly strong, hunts from underground.
Tuffnut
Now I really want one!
Snotlout
So, how do we deal with this thing?
Stoick
Stand back, everyone!

[Stoick arrives riding Thornado who bellows at the intruder.]

Stoick (cont.)
Thornado's got something to say to this beast!

[Thornado roars at the dragon, but it quickly roars back, unaffected.]

Gobber
I don't think it's got its listening ears on.
Astrid
Alright, let's run this thing out of here!

[Toothless emerges from the hole and growls to the resident dragons.]

Snotlout
What is Toothless doing?!
Astrid
I think he wants us to back off.
Fishlegs
No problem here.
Hiccup
Toothless!

[Toothless and the Whispering Death fight. Toothless is unable to get airborne.]

Hiccup
Toothless can't fly without me! He's a sitting duck!
Stoick
Gobber, man the catapults, and when that thing is clear of Toothless, Fire!
Hiccup
Dad, wait! Just let me help you, bud.

[Hiccup tries to mount Toothless, but Toothless won't let him.]

Hiccup
What? Toothless, wha-what's wrong?
Astrid
What was that all about?
Hiccup
I have no idea.

[Whispering Death injures Toothless with a razor-sharp spine that drives itself into his leg.]

Stoick
Gobber!

[Gobber launches a boulder at the Whispering Death and it retreats down the hole, carving a new path underground.]

Hiccup
Oh, no, you're hurt!

[Toothless allows Hiccup to remove the spike from his leg, then runs away.]

Hiccup
Toothless, wait!
Astrid
Where's he going?
Snotlout
Probably running away to lick his wounds. [laughs]
Hiccup
It's not funny! He could've been killed. He can't fly, remember?
Snotlout
And whose fault is that?
Astrid
Seriously, did you just go there?
Snotlout
Hey, I call it like I see it.
Fishlegs
Um, does anyone want to talk about what in the name of Thor just happened?
Tuffnut
Uh, dragon fight? Just another day on Berk.
Fishlegs
Uh, not really. It seemed like there was way more to it than that.
Hiccup
He's right. The Whispering Death singled Toothless out.
Astrid
And Toothless wanted that dragon all to himself.
Hiccup
Yeah, he certainly did. But why?
Tuffnut
Uh, are we going to be tested on this, because I'm completely confused.
Ruffnut
Well, don't look at me.


Hiccup
I-I really wish you could just tell me what was going on out there today.

[Toothless growls at the sound of footsteps on the stairs.]

Hiccup
Whoa, whoa, whoa, easy, bud. It's just my dad.
Stoick
How's our wounded warrior?
Hiccup
He's still a little on edge.
Stoick
Don't worry, Toothless. I think we showed that dragon a thing or two about uninvited guests on Berk. I don't think he'll be coming back any time soon. At least I hope not.
Hiccup
Yeah, me too. Okay that should do it. bud. You just need to take it easy.

[Toothless lies down, Hiccup goes to sleep, then Toothless leaves via the window.]

Hiccup
To-Toothless?
Hiccup
Toothless! Oh, no. He went after him... alone.

Snotlout
Maybe Toothless just went for a morning flight? Oh, that's right... he CAN'T!
Astrid
Really? You're going there again? Now?!
Hiccup
Toothless must be looking for the Whispering Death. We find it, we find Toothless.
Fishlegs
What do we do if we find the Whispering Death first?
Hiccup
Well, we train him.
Tuffnut
You know he's got "death" in his name, right?
Hiccup
Fishlegs, is there anything about the Whispering Death in the Book of Dragons that can help us?
Fishlegs
It can shoot razor sharp spines from any part of its body.
Astrid
And how's that gonna help us?
Fishlegs
Well, it would help if we stayed away from those.
Tuffnut
Or we can get near them and use Ruffnut as a human shield!

[Ruffnut savagely kicks Tuffnut in the kneecap.]

Tuffnut
OW! MY KNEE CAP! That's new... I like it.
Hiccup
This Dragon must have a weakness...
Fishlegs
Actually, no. Yeah, it says right here: "no known weaknesses".
Tuffnut
Ha, I really love this thing.
Hiccup
Okay, great, uh, can we go now, please? We don't know how much time we have.
Astrid
Don't worry, Hiccup. We'll find him.

Hiccup
There, down below.
Hiccup
Toothless?! Toothless?!
Snotlout
How do we even know the Whispering Death made these holes?
Astrid
So you think it might be the other 2,500 pound, rock eating Dragon we're following?
Snotlout
I know what you're- Don't try to confuse me.
Hiccup
Look at this...?
Hiccup
He must've lost a tooth.
Tuffnut
Is it sharp? If it is I want it! I like sharp!
Ruffnut
Yeah, sharp is good!
Fishlegs
Think about this: hundreds of those spinning together, ripping through dirt and tree roots. Discarding rock like it's not even there!
Astrid
Stormfly, what's wrong?
Tuffnut
What's wrong with you?
Ruffnut
Barf, settle down!
Hiccup
Stop! Listen...
Tuffnut
Listen for what?!
Ruffnut
I don't hear anything. What are we listening for?!
Astrid
Be quiet!
Tuffnut
How are we supposed to hear anything over her yelling--?
Astrid
Shhh!
Fishlegs
The whisper...

[The ground shakes violently.]

Snotlout
Looks like we beat Toothless.
Astrid
Yeah... we win...
Fishlegs
I'm not feeling like a winner!

[The Whispering Death emerges and growls at Fishlegs.]

Fishlegs
Hi... um... I like the teeth...

[The Whispering Death burrows back underground.]

Snotlout
I hate it when he does that! Can you at least tell me why he does it?!
Fishlegs
Maybe to hunt...? Maybe because it's cooler...? Maybe to look for water...? AND MAYBE BECAUSE HE CAN'T STAND THE PRESSURE OF EVERYBODY ALWAYS EXPECTING HIM TO HAVE THE ANSWERS!
Tuffnut
He's losing it.
Ruffnut
I know...it's awesome.

[The Whispering Death emerges from the ground again.]

Tuffnut
Somebody hold it still. I wanna pet it!
Astrid
Do you actually have a plan, or are you just trying to get yourself killed?
Hiccup
If I can train it, it'll leave Toothless alone...
Snotlout
Right, so you are trying to get yourself killed?

[The Whispering Death charges towards Hiccup but stops short in front of Hiccup's outstretched hand. The dragon sniffs it and turns away.]

Hiccup
Okay.
Astrid
Um, I know what you're thinking, and the answer's no.

[Hiccup jumps down the hole.]

Astrid
Why does he always do that?
Fishlegs
Oh, man. I am so glad I'm not down there with him right now.

[Snotlout pushes Fishlegs down the hole.]

Snotlout
Oops.
Hiccup
Thanks, Fishlegs. I kinda figured you'd be the last one to volunteer.
Fishlegs
Yeah! I didn't want you to have to face that thing all alone.
Hiccup
This things been busy.
Fishlegs
Quick question: why are we down here again?
Hiccup
This is where it spends all of it's time. There's gotta be something down here that can help us.
Hiccup
There it goes, let's follow it.
Fishlegs
Oh, you were talking to me...?
Hiccup
Fishlegs, new Dragon. You love this stuff!
Fishlegs
I hate that about me!
Fishlegs
Hiccup, did you see--?
Hiccup
Can it wait?
Hiccup
Let's just hope it keeps going...
Fishlegs
How'd that work out for us?

[Hiccup and Fishlegs see a bite mark on the Whispering Death's tail.]

Fishlegs
Did you see that?!
Hiccup
Was that a bite mark?
Fishlegs
Not just any bite mark, that's a Night Fury bite mark. I think I know why these two are looking for each other.
Hiccup
They have a history.
Fishlegs
A grudge.
Hiccup
If that's true, how long to Dragons carry a grudge?
Fishlegs
To the death...
Hiccup
Let's get out of here before it comes back.
Fishlegs
That is a really good idea.

[The Whispering Death finds them.]

Astrid
They've been down there forever.
Astrid
Hiccup! Fishlegs!
Hiccup
Yep, right here.
Tuffnut
Did you see the Whispering Death? Was it cool?
Ruffnut
Did you touch it?
Tuffnut
I wanna touch it!
Fishlegs
Can we talk about this later? We really need to get out of this hole!
Astrid
Yeah, you do.
Hiccup
Fishlegs, you go first.
Fishlegs
No argument here.
Astrid
Grab my hand!
Astrid
Hiccup, hurry!

[Hiccup tries to reach Astrid's hand and succeeds, but then slips from her grip.]

Hiccup
I can't reach!
Astrid
Hiccup! Just... a little more!
Hiccup
I'm trying!
Hiccup
Everyone stand back!
Hiccup
WHOOAAA!

[Hiccup is thrown out of the hole by a dust cloud, and the Whispering Death is ready to catch him -- WITH ITS TEETH!]

Tuffnut
Wow, I bet he can see our house from up there.
Astrid
Stormfly!

[Stormfly saves Hiccup from being eaten.]

Hiccup
Thanks, Astrid.
Tuffnut
I don't think he likes you in its hole...
Hiccup
Yeah, I got that.
Snotlout
Can we get out of here! Please?
Hiccup
No. I know I can train this thing. Anybody got some Dragon Nip?

[Hiccup suddenly has armfuls of Dragon Nip.]

Hiccup
Don't be afraid... I'm a friend. Here--
Hiccup
You'll love this. All the dragons love this.

[Whispering Death sneezes the Dragon Nip towards the other Dragons, making them swoon blissfully.]

Snotlout
Oh, great. Now we're defenseless.
Hiccup
Any ideas? I'm throwing it wide-open to the group.
Snotlout
I got an idea... RUN!

[The Whispering Death chases the group but is suddenly tackled by Toothless.]

Astrid
Toothless!

[Toothless chases the Whispering Death away. Hiccup tries to mount him but Toothless once again doesn't let him.]

Hiccup
Hey, bud. It's me. I know what's going on with you and that other dragon.
Hiccup
Let me help you.

[Toothless runs off.]

Hiccup
Toothless, come back!

[Toothless fires a blast at Hiccup's feet, stopping him from following, then runs off.]

Tuffnut
Awkward...
Snotlout
So Toothless has an arch-enemy. Kind of like you and me.
Hiccup
Snotlout! You're not my arch-enemy!
Snotlout
Well, you're mine!
Astrid
He's just trying to protect you.
Snotlout
That's not what it is! Toothless doesn't want you around because this is between him and the other guy. He's a fighter. Like me.
Snotlout
Not... whatever you are.
Hiccup
I... never thought I'd say this, Snotlout, but I think you're right.
Snotlout
Wait... huh? You guys heard that, right?
Hiccup
It's not a fair fight! If Toothless is gonna win, he has to fly. And he can't fly without me!
Astrid
So, what are you saying?
Hiccup
I'm saying we need to find him. And soon.

[Toothless runs through the trees looking for the Whispering Death.]

Hiccup
There he is! Get me down there.

[Hiccup approaches Toothless, with his hand extended out. Toothless finally touches his nose to Hiccup's hand.]

Hiccup
Hey, bud. You had me so worried there for a while. You haven't been yourself lately. Good to see you're still you.

[The Whispering Death appears from the ground.]

Hiccup
You can just walk away from this, bud!
Hiccup
Let's just go home--

[Toothless pushes Hiccup away again.]

Fishlegs
You were so close. I thought you had him!

[Toothless tries to fly towards the Whispering Death, shooting plasma blasts but is knocked down by the Whispering Death.]

Hiccup
He needs our help.

[Toothless tells the other dragons to stay away.]

Astrid
Come on, girl!
Snotlout
Hookfang won't budge!
Tuffnut
I think ours is broken.
Fishlegs
They know this isn't their fight, guys.

[The Whispering Death corners Toothless on a cliff ledge, with no escape.]

Hiccup
TOOTHLESS! Buddy...
Hiccup
He's gonna knock Toothless into the canyon!

[Hiccup steps off the ledge and freefalls into the canyon. Toothless dives to save him.]

Astrid
Hiccup!

[Hiccup mounts Toothless in midair.]

Astrid
Yes!
Hiccup
You save me, I save you! That's the way it is!

[Toothless and Hiccup fight the Whispering Death.]

Fishlegs
The sunlight, Hiccup! That's its weakness!
Hiccup
Okay, bud. Keep him above ground.

[Toothless shoots plasma blasts down the Whispering Death holes.]

Ruffnut
This. Is. Amazing!
Tuffnut (talking to Belch)
We've got to find you an arch-nemesis.

[Toothless finally defeats Whispering Death and goes to finish with plasma blast.]

Hiccup
Toothless! No!

[Toothless jumps off the Whispering Death and lets it fly off underground.]

Snotlout
Aw, man! Toothless could have finished him off!
Hiccup
Well, I guess all dragon grudges aren't to the death.
Fishlegs
I guess I'll have to change that in the book.
Hiccup
Hey, bud. What do you say we go home?
Hiccup (v.o.)
When our past rears its ugly head, it usually doesn't have six rows of razor-sharp teeth and a bad attitude.

[Toothless drops boulders to cover the Whispering Death's hole openings.]

Hiccup (v.o.)
If it does, you're going to need a great friend who has your back. I will always have Toothless' back. And he will always have mine.
