  • Hiccup: [voice-over] My name's Hiccup. Great name, I know, but it's not the worst. Parents believe a hideous name will frighten off gnomes and trolls. Like our charming Viking demeanor wouldn't do that.
    Viking: [roars in Hiccup's face] AAAAAAAAAAARRRRR! [cheery] Mornin'!
  • Hiccup: [after making a disaster of the latest dragon raid] ...Okay, but I hit a Night Fury. [Stoick angrily grabs him and drags him away] It's not like the last few times, Dad! I mean, I really actually hit it! You guys were busy, and I had a very clear shot! It went down just off Raven Point. Let's get a search party out there before it...
    Stoick: STOP! [Hiccup stops, surprised] Just... stop. Every time you step outside, disaster follows! Can you not see that I have bigger problems? Winter is almost here, and I have an entire village to feed!
    Hiccup: [lowers his voice] Well, between you and me, the village could do with a little less feeding, don't you think?
    Stoick: This isn't a joke, Hiccup! Why can't you follow the simplest orders?
    Hiccup: I-I can't stop myself! I see a dragon and I have to just... kill it! You know? It's who I am, Dad.
    Stoick: [sighs] You are many things, Hiccup. But a dragon killer is not one of them.
  • Hiccup: Aw, come on! Let me out, please! I need to make my mark!
    Gobber: Oh, you've made plenty of marks! All in the wrong places!
    Hiccup: Please, two minutes! I'll kill a dragon, my life will get infinitely better, I might even get a date!
    Gobber: You can't lift a hammer, you can't swing an axe, you can't even throw one of these! [holds up a set of bolas, which a Viking snatches and throws at a Gronckle]
    Hiccup: Okay, fine! But this... [gestures to a catapult invention] Will throw it for me! [touches the machine and it goes off, firing a set of bolas out the window that hits a Viking]
    Gobber: Now, see, this right here... [gestures to Hiccup's invention] ...is what I'm talkin' about!
    Hiccup: But, uh... mild calibration issue...
    Gobber: Don't you-- No...! Hiccup! If you ever want to get out there to fight dragons, you need to stop all... [gestures to all of Hiccup] this.
    Hiccup: But you just pointed to all of me!
    Gobber: Yes, that's it! Stop being all of you!
    Hiccup: [nodding and glaring at Gobber] Ohh...
    Gobber: Oh, yeah.
    Hiccup: [awkwardly, but standing his ground] You-you, sir, are playing a dangerous game! Keeping this much raw... "Viking-ness" contained? THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES!
    Gobber: [flatly] I'll take my chances. [tosses him a sword] Sword. Sharpen. Now.
    Hiccup: [voice-over] One day I'll get out there. Because killing a dragon is everything around here. A Nadder head is sure to get me at least noticed. Gronkles are tough, taking down one of those would definitely get me a girlfriend. A Zippleback? Exotic. Two heads, twice the status. Then there's the Monstrous Nightmare. Only the best Vikings go after those. They have this nasty habit of setting themselves on fire.
    [A fiery Monstrous Nightmare attacks the catapult crew]
    Stoick: Reload! [calmly] I'll take care of this.
    Hiccup: [voice-over] But the ultimate prize is the dragon no one's ever seen... they call it the...
    Viking 1: NIGHT FURY!
    Viking 2: GET DOWN!
    [The catapult Stoick and the other men are on suddenly explodes. The black dragon responsible for the explosion shoots by, barely visible.]
    Stoick: [To the other men] JUMP!
    Hiccup: [voice-over] This thing never steals food, never shows itself, and [The catapult is blasted once again by the same dragon] never misses. No one has ever killed a Night Fury. That's why I'm going to be the first.
  • Hiccup: I really did hit one.
    Gobber: Sure, Hiccup....
    Hiccup: [about his father] He never listens.
    Gobber: Well, it runs in the family...
    Hiccup: And when he does, it's always with this disappointed scowl, like someone skimped on the meat in his sandwich. [imitating his father] "Excuse me, barmaid, I'm afraid you brought me the wrong offspring! I ordered an extra-large boy with beefy arms, extra guts and glory on the side. This here, this is a talking fish-bone!"
    Gobber: Now, you're thinkin' about this all wrong! It's not so much what you look like, it's what's inside that he can't stand.
    Hiccup: [sarcastically] Thank you for summing that up.
    Gobber: Look, the point is, stop trying so hard to be something you're not.
    Hiccup: I just wanna be one of you guys. [goes inside his house, then goes out the back door, out of his village, to look for the Night Fury]
