Hiccup (v.o.)
Living with dragons has it's ups... and it's downs. You need to stay calm. Keep a clear head. Not always easy with Vikings.
Hiccup
More supports?
Gobber
Eh, well, they are dragons.
Hiccup (v.o.)
In our own way, we're very reasonable.
Astrid
It's okay, girl. Just take it easy.
Hiccup
Yes! It works!
Gobber
Way to go!
Snotlout
Whoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!
Tuffnut
So we built these things so stuff wouldn't break?
Ruffnut
I don't understand you people.
Tuffnut
And they tricked us into helping them build them. I feel so used... and sweaty.
Hiccup (v.o.)
But when a problem is caused by something Vikings don't understand, they lose all sense of reason. And that can become very dangerous.
Stoick
Perches for dragons! Some of your best work, men. Although we may need to move the one over the well.
Hiccup
And the perches are just the beginning, we can build landing areas for them, maybe even stables in the caves underneath the village and-
Stoick
Easy son, remember Berk is still for people.
Gobber
Vikings before dragons.
Gobber
Yeah, I said it. Deal with it.
Hiccup
The lighting is hitting everywhere.
Stoick
It usually doesn't strike here in the village.
Gobber
Thor must be angry. The only other time I can remember lighting ever striking Berk--
Gobber and Stoick
Barnstat.
Hiccup
Barn-who?
Stoick
Jürgen Barnstat, drifter, sailed into town. He was stealing from widows and old men.
Gobber
To punish him, Thor gave him a lightning bolt right to his helmet when he was fixing the mast on his ship to make his escape.
Stoick
By the time Thor was finished with him, our whole fleet was on fire!
Gobber
We shipped him off the island and Thor hasn't hit the village since.
Hiccup
Threw him off the island? Pretty harsh.
Stoick
Gobber.
Stoick
Gobber, organize a bucket brigade. I'm going up to Great Hall.
Hiccup
Toothless!
Hiccup
I gotta find Toothless.
Tuffnut
Yeah, now that's what I'm talking about!
Ruffnut
I've always liked Thor.
Snotlout
Oh, I love these storms! When it rains, I cancel bath night and just stand outside with nothing but a sponge and a bar of soap.
Fishlegs
We know. The village has had meetings about it.
Hiccup
I-I need your help. I need to find Toothless!
Astrid
I just saw him by the Great Hall.
Stoick
Don't worry, men. You're gonna be alright.
Mulch
It's striking throughout the entire village. It's like we're under siege!
Bucket
I've never seen Thor this angry!
Hiccup
Toothless!
Mildew
Did you all see that?
Mulch
Look! The lightning is following him!
Hiccup
Toothless!
Mildew
Don't you all understand? Thor is mad at all of us! And I'll tell you why. Because of him! As you all know, the Night Fury is the unholy offspring of lightning and death itself! We've let him live among us and now we will all pay the price!
Mulch
Well, it did seem as though the lighting struck right at the dragon.
Mildew
Yes! Right at the dragon! And a lighting storm the likes of which we've never had! There is but one thing for us to do: banish the Night Fury! It's the only way!
Mildew
Thor is angry at us because of the Night Fury. You all saw it!
Hiccup
What?! No! This is ridiculous!
Mildew
If we don't act now, well, need I remind you of... Barnstat!
Stoick
You're right, all of you! Thor is angry, but I don't believe he's angry at Toothless.
Hiccup
That's right! Have you all forgotten what Toothless has done for this village?!
Mildew
Well, then who do you suppose he's angry at?
Stoick
I don't presume to know Thor's mind, Mildew. But we will find a way to soothe his anger.
Hiccup
Another storm is coming.
Tuffnut
Thor tore a hole in the Great Hall. Maybe he's hungry? I know I am.
Hiccup
We need to make Thor happy. But what do you get the God of Thunder and Lightning?
Fishlegs
In the past, I know Thor's enjoyed a sacrifice or two.
Ruffnut
Let's sacrifice Tuffnut!
Tuffnut
Okay, what time should I be there? There better be fire involved.
Hiccup
Nobody's gonna be sacrificed!
Snotlout
Not yet, anyway.
Astrid
I had an aunt who was cursed by Odin once. She had to pay tribute to him by sailing to the end of the Earth.
Fishlegs
Did it work?
Astrid
I don't know. I guess she couldn't find it, because she kept showing up from the opposite direction.
Fishlegs
The Gods have never been mad at anyone from our family.
Fishlegs
Knock on wood. Hop on one foot. Slap a Jorgenson.
Snotlout
If I were Thor, I would want a giant statue.
Snotlout
Of myself, Snotlout, as Thor!
Astrid
You do know we're trying to make him happy?
Snotlout
Exactly!
Astrid
I think I just threw up in my mouth
Hiccup
Actually, that's not a bad idea.
Astrid
It's not an idea, it's a reflex.
Hiccup
What--? No! I-I mean the statue.
Astrid
There I go again.
Hiccup
No! Not Snotlout! Thor!
Fishlegs
Hmm, Berk has never given Thor a statue.
Hiccup
Well, then it's high time we did!
Tuffnut
Yowch!
Ruffnut
Ouch!
Hiccup
Great job. Uh, one issue. Thor's knee bends the other way. You know, like a knee... on a person?.
Hiccup
What are you doing?
Fishlegs
I'm making Thor's pants. I hope they're not too tight. I hate it when my pants are too tight. I feel so bloated.
Hiccup
Okay, guys, we better start welding these pieces together.
Hiccup
Yeah. I really think Thor's gonna like this.
Hiccup
Attention! Attention everyone! Okay, so, I know we're not exactly Thor's favorite people right now, but I am confident that this beautiful statue will got a long way toward getting us back in his good graces! So, without further ado...
Stoick
Well done! Thor will appreciate this tribute, and will smile upon us once again!
Mildew
You really think this is enough to appease the mighty Thor, while you allow a Night Fury in your midst?! YOU'RE FOOLS! ALL OF YA!
Hiccup
Unbelievable. Even more lightning than the last storm.
Gobber
I don't understand. We gave Thor a giant statue!
Stoick
It was a gallant effort, son, but it looks as though this is not what Thor wanted.
Hiccup
Gobber, what are you doing?
Gobber
I love Toothless, I'm just erring on the side of caution.
Hiccup
Hey, don't worry, bud. I'm not gonna let anything happen to you. No matter what some people think!
Fishlegs
I know you're scared, girl. If you wanna hold me, that's what I'm here for.
Ruffnut
Whoa. Look at all that damage and destruction.
Tuffnut
I know. It's so beautiful!
Ruffnut
Whoa, whoa, whoa!
Tuffnut
Whoa... Nobody blows stuff up like Thor.
Mildew
That's what Thor thinks of the statue! I told you what he wants, and we haven't given it to him! Until we rid this island of that Night Fury, Thor's fire will continue to rain down upon us!
Hiccup
Y-- You don't really think Thor is angry because of Toothless, do you?
Stoick
Of course I don't.
Mildew
Open up, Stoick! We've come for the Night Fury!
Stoick
But I'm afraid they do. Get Toothless to a safe place, I'll try to reason with them.
Hiccup
But--
Stoick
Just go!
Gobber
Safe travels, old friend.
Hiccup
Don't worry, bud. It's you and me.
Mildew
Give up the dragon, Stoick! Look at your people. We've had enough!
Stoick
You're too late. He's gone.
Gobber
Stoick's already sent him off the island.
Mildew
Thor says otherwise. The dragon must still be on the island. Find the Night Fury! Go!
Astrid
We can hide Toothless in the cove for now.
Hiccup
They'll just find him. No. We have to leave.
Astrid
"We?"
Hiccup
He can't make it on his own. And I wouldn't want him to. I'm going with him, Astrid.
Astrid
But you'll come back, right?
Hiccup
Yeah, eventually. When they all realize this didn't happen because of Toothless.
Astrid
You better go.
Mildew
Where's the boy?! And more importantly, where's the dragon?!
Astrid
I don't know, Mildew, but you got your wish. Hiccup and Toothless are gone.
Mildew
Oh, bah! Find the Night Fury! All of you!
Hiccup
TOOTHLESS!
Mildew
Ah! There they are!
Hiccup
Whoo...You okay, bud?
Hiccup
That's where the lightning hit...
Hiccup
The metal! I wonder...
Mildew
Secure the dragon!
Hiccup
Toothless! No! Leave him alone!
Mildew
Don't try and stop us, you'll only make it worse for your precious dragon.
Hiccup
Toothless!
Mildew
Say your goodbyes.
Hiccup
Toothless!
Hiccup
Toothless...
Stoick
I know you're afraid. But this isn't how we do things on Berk! These dragons are not the beasts we once thought they were. They're part of us now.
Mildew
Not this one! Not anymore!
Stoick
Release the dragon, Mildew.
Mildew
Open your eyes, Stoick. It's the only solution and you know it. It worked with Barnstat and it'll work with Toothless.
Astrid
Hiccup! They've got Toothless! They're about to float him off to sea.
Hiccup
I know. Why do you think I have- -this?
Tuffnut
Oh, tough one. How many guesses do we get? Five?
Hiccup
Oookay... Astrid, fly me to the docks!
Stoick
If you want to get to that dragon, you're gonna have to go through us!
Stoick
Thank you, lads.
Bucket
I-If we're choosing sides, Mulch, uh, there's more over there. Lots more.
Mulch
We stand with the Chief, Bucket.
Hiccup
Stop!
Hiccup
Stop! You could get rid of Toothless, you could throw him off the edge of the world, but it's not going to stop this lighting from destroying Berk.
Hiccup
It's the metal. The lightning is hitting the metal! Just think about it. We never had a lightning storm like this until we put up those perches, that statue, right? And they're all made of metal!
Mildew
Oh, bah! You ever heard of anything so insane?!
Hiccup
Y-you see? This is where the lighting struck Toothless. On this connecting rod... this metal connecting rod!
Hiccup
Look, if you don't believe me, I can prove it!
Hiccup
Fly me up.
Astrid
Are you sure you know what you're doing?
Hiccup
Sure? Uh, that's a strong word. It's really more of a... hunch. I'll be fine. Go!
Gobber
Oh, boy, here he goes again...
Stoick
He doesn't make it easy. Hiccup!
Hiccup
You'll all see for yourselves! When I attach this metal rod to the top of this mast, the lighting will be drawn to--
Stoick
HICCUP!
Stoick
Son...
Stoick
Hiccup...
Stoick
Son...
Hiccup
Toothless! What happened, bud?
Hiccup
At least I didn't lose another one.
Stoick
My boy! You're alright!
Stoick
You took a lightning bolt to the head.
Gobber
Just like Barnstat. Except we won't be throwing you off the island.
Hiccup
So everyone knows Thor wasn't mad at Toothless?
Stoick
They do now.
Gobber
Until we figure out why Thor was angry at the metal, we're all walking on eggshells.
Hiccup
Oh, we worked so hard on that statue. Kind of a shame we have to just scrap it for parts.
Stoick
Well, maybe we don't have to. Why don't you take it to one of the high points on the island and leave it there?
Tuffnut
Good idea, Chief! I would've thought of it myself, but I'm not the Chief.
Snotlout
Oh, we'll handle that for you.
Mildew
You'll pay for this!
Hiccup
I'm not sure that's what my dad had in mind, guys.
Snotlout
Hey, that's the way I understood it.
Hiccup (v.o.)
No matter how much things change around here Vikings are still Vikings. They're not afraid to admit when they're wrong. And when they do, watch out! Cause you'll be up to your ears in pie and smoked fish.
