  • Gobber: Oh, nice of you to join the party! I thought you'd been carried off!
    Hiccup: Who, me? Nah, come on! I'm waaaay too muscular for their taste! They wouldn't know what to do with all... [flexing] this!
    Gobber: Well, they need toothpicks, don't they?
  • Stoick: When I was a boy...
    Gobber: Oh, here we go...
    Stoick: My father told me to bang my head against a rock, and I did it. I thought he was crazy, but I didn't question him. And you know what happened?
    Gobber: You got a headache.
    Stoick: That rock split in two! It taught me what a Viking can do, Gobber! He can crush mountains, level forests, tame seas! Even as a boy, I knew who I was, what I had to become... Hiccup is not that boy.
    Gobber: You can't stop him, Stoick. You can only prepare him. I know it sounds hopeless, but the truth is, you won't always be around to protect him. He's gonna get out there again. He's probably out there now!
  • [Hiccup returns home after failing to kill the Night Fury. He tries to sneak up to his bedroom, but Stoick hears him]
    Stoick: Hiccup...
    Hiccup: Dad! Uh, I have to talk to you, Dad.
    Stoick: I need to speak with you too, son.
    [They both take deep breaths and speak at once.]
    Hiccup/Stoick: I've decided I don't want to fight dragons./I think it's time you learned to fight dragons. [beat] What?
    Stoick: Uh, you go first.
    Hiccup: No, no, you go first.
    Stoick: Alright. [takes another deep breath] You get your wish. Dragon Training. You start in the morning.
    Hiccup: [panicky] Oh man, I should have gone first! Uh, 'cause I was thinking... You know, we have a surplus of dragon-fighting Vikings. But do we have enough... bread-making Vikings? Or small home repair Vikings?
    Stoick: [not paying attention; drops a large battle axe into Hiccup's arms] You'll need this.
    Hiccup: [nervously] I... don't wanna fight dragons.
    Stoick: [chuckles] Oh, come on, yes, you do.
    Hiccup: Rephrase: Dad, I can't kill dragons!
    Stoick: But you will kill dragons!
    Hiccup: No... I'm really very extra sure that I won't.
    Stoick: It's time, Hiccup...
    Hiccup: [desperately] Can you not hear me?!
    Stoick: This is serious, son. [takes the axe from Hiccup] When you carry this axe, [returns the axe] you carry all of us with you. Which means you walk like us, you talk like us, you think like us. No more... [gestures to Hiccup] this.
    Hiccup: [rolls his eyes] You just gestured to all of me.
    Stoick: Deal?
    Hiccup: This conversation is feeling very one-sided...
    Stoick: Deal?
    Hiccup: [sighs, giving in] Deal.
  • Gobber: Welcome to Dragon Training!
    Astrid: No turning back.
    [The teens enter the arena and look around in wonder]
    Tuffnut: I hope I get some serious burns!
    Ruffnut: I'm hoping for some mauling, like on my shoulder or lower back.
    Astrid: [wryly] Yeah, it's only fun if you get a scar out of it.
    Hiccup: [entering behind the others; unenthusiastic] Yeah, no kidding, right? Pain, love it.
    Tuffnut: Oh, great! Who let him in?
    Gobber: Let's get started! The recruit who does best will win the honor of killing his first dragon in front of the entire village.
    Snotlout: [jokingly] Hiccup already killed a Night Fury, so does that disqualify him, or...?
    [All of the students, except Hiccup, snicker]
    Tuffnut: Can I transfer to the class with the cool Vikings?
    Gobber: (aside, to Hiccup) Don't worry, you're small and you're weak. That'll make you less of a target. They'll see you as sick or insane and go after the more Viking-like teens instead. [aloud, to the other teens] Behind these doors are just a few of the many species you will learn to fight. The Deadly Nadder...
