Let's go, bud!
Living with dragons has its ups...
..and its downs.
You need to stay calm.
Keep a clear head.
Not always easy with Vikings.
Well, they are dragons.
'In our own way, we're very reasonable.'
SHOUTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
It's OK, girl. Just take it easy.
-Yes! It works!
-Way to go!
So, we built these things so stuff WOULDN'T break?
I don't understand you people.
And they tricked us into helping them build them.
I feel so used. And sweaty.
But when a problem is caused by something Vikings don't understand,
they lose all sense of reason.
And that can become very dangerous.
Perches for dragons. Some of your best work, men.
Ah! Although we may need to move the one over the well.
And the perches are just the beginning.
We could build landing areas for them.
Maybe even stables in the caves underneath the village and...
Easy, son. Remember, Berk is still for people.
Vikings before dragons. RUMBLING
Yeah. I said it. Deal with it.
Lightning is hitting everywhere.
It doesn't usually strike here in the village.
Thor must be angry.
The only other time I can remember lightning ever striking Berk...
Drifter. Sailed into town.
He was stealing from widows and old men.
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.
By the time Thor was finished with him, our whole fleet was on fire.
We shipped him off the island and Thor hasn't hit the village since.
Threw him off the island? Pretty harsh.
Gobber, organise a bucket brigade. I'm going up to the Great Hall.
I've got to find Toothless!
Yeah, now that's what I'm talking about.
I've always liked Thor.
Ah! 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.
We know. The village has had meetings about it.
I-I need your help. I need to find Toothless.
I just saw him by the Great Hall.
Don't worry, men. You're going to be all right.
It's striking throughout the entire village. It's like we're under siege!
I've never seen Thor this angry!
-Did you all see that?
Look! The lightning is following him!
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.
Well, it did seem as though the lightning struck right at the dragon.
Yes! Right at the dragon!
And a lightning 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.
SHOUTS OF AGREEMENT
Thor is angry at us because of the Night Fury.
You all saw it!
MURMURS OF AGREEMENT
What?! No, this is ridiculous!
If we don't act now...
Well, need I remind you of...Barnstadt?
You're right. All of you, Thor is angry.
But I don't believe he's angry at Toothless.
Dad's right. Have you all forgotten
what Toothless has done for this village?
Well, then, who do you suppose he's angry at?
I don't presume to know Thor's mind, Mildew,
but we will find a way to soothe his anger.
Another storm is coming.
Thor tore a hole in the Great Hall. Maybe he's hungry. I know I am.
We need to make Thor happy.
But what do you get the god of thunder and lightning?
In the past, I know Thor's enjoyed a sacrifice or two.
Let's sacrifice Tuffnut.
OK. What time should I be there? There'd better be fire involved.
Nobody's going to be sacrificed.
Not yet, anyway.
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.
-Did it work?
-I don't know. I guess she couldn't find it
because she kept showing up from the opposite direction.
The gods have never been mad at anyone from our family.
Knock on wood.
Hop on one foot.
Slap a Jorgensen.
If I were Thor, I would want a giant statue.
Of myself, Snotlout. As Thor.
You do know we're trying to make him happy?
I think I just threw up in my mouth.
Actually, that's not a bad idea.
It's not an idea, it's a reflex.
What?! No, I mean the statue.
There I go again.
No, not Snotlout, Thor!
Hm. Berk has never given Thor a statue.
Well, then, it's high time we did.
Great job. Er...one issue.
Thor's knee bends the other way.
You know, like a knee? On a person?
What are you doing?
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.
OK, guys, we'd better start welding these pieces together.
I really think Thor's going to like this.
What do you think that is?
Attention! Attention, everyone!
OK, so I know we're not exactly Thor's favourite people right now,
but I am confident that this beautiful statue
will go a long way toward getting us back in his good graces.
So without further ado...
Thor will appreciate this tribute and will smile upon us once again.
That's right! CHEERING
Do 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 you!
Unbelievable! Even more lightning than the last storm.
I don't understand. We gave Thor a giant statue!
It was a gallant effort, son,
but it looks as though this is not what Thor wanted.
Gobber, what are you doing?
I love Toothless. I'm just erring on the side of caution.
Hey, don't worry, bud. I'm not going to let anything happen to you.
No matter what some people think!
I know you're scared, girl.
If you want to hold me, that's what I'm here for.
Whoa! Look at all that damage and destruction!
I know. It's so beautiful.
Nobody blows stuff up like Thor.
THUNDERCLAP AND SCREAMING
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!
You don't really think Thor is angry because of Toothless, do you?
Of course I don't.
-Open up, Stoick! We've come for the Night Fury!
But I'm afraid they do.
Get Toothless to a safe place. I'll try to reason with them.
Safe travels, old friend.
Don't worry, bud. It's you and me.
Give up the dragon, Stoick!
Look at your people. We've had enough!
You're too late. He's gone.
Stoick's already sent him off the island.
Thor says otherwise.
The dragon must still be on the island. Find the Night Fury!
We can hide Toothless in the cove for now.
They'll just find him. No. We have to leave.
-He can't make it on his own.
And I wouldn't want him to.
I'm going with him, Astrid.
But you'll come back, right?
When they all realise this didn't happen because of Toothless.
You'd better go.
Where's the boy?! And more importantly, where's the dragon?!
I don't know, Mildew, but you got your wish.
Hiccup and Toothless are gone.
Find the Night Fury, all of you!
Ah! There they are!
You OK, bud?
Ow! That's where the lightning hit!
Secure the dragon!
No! Leave him alone!
Don't try and stop us.
You'll only make it worse for your precious dragon!
-Say your goodbyes.
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.
Not this one! Not any more!
Release the dragon, Mildew!
Open your eyes, Stoick. It's the only solution and you know it!
It worked with Barnstadt and it'll work with Toothless!
Hiccup! They've got Toothless! They're about to send him to sea!
I know. Why do you think I have this?
Ooo, tough one! How many guesses do we get - five?
OK. Astrid, fly me to the docks.
If you want to get to that dragon,
you're going to have to go through us!
Thank you, lads.
If we're choosing sides, Mulch, there's more over there.
We stand with the chief, Bucket.
You can get rid of Toothless,
you could throw him off the edge of the world,
but it's not going to stop this lightning from destroying Berk.
I do not believe it!
-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.
Oh, bah! Have you ever heard of anything so insane?
That's right! THUNDERCLAP
You see, this is where the lightning struck Toothless,
on this connecting rod, this metal connecting rod.
If you don't believe me, I can prove it.
Fly me up.
Are you sure you know what you're doing?
Sure? That's a strong word.
It's really more of a hunch.
I'll be fine. Go!
Oh, boy. Here he goes again.
He doesn't make it easy. Hiccup!
You'll all see for yourselves.
When I attach this metal rod to the top of this mast,
the lightning will be drawn to...
Toothless! What happened, bud?
At least I didn't lose another one.
My boy! You're all right!
You took a lightning bolt to the head.
Just like Barnstadt. Except we won't be throwing you off the island.
So, everyone knows Thor wasn't mad at Toothless?
They do now.
Until we figure out why Thor was angry at the metal,
we're all walking on eggshells.
We worked so hard on that statue.
Kind of a shame to just scrap it for parts.
Well, maybe we don't have to.
Take it to one of the high points on the island and leave it there.
Good idea, Chief.
I would have thought of it myself, but I'm not the chief.
Oh, we'll handle that for you.
You'll pay for this!
I'm not sure that's what my dad had in mind, guys.
Hey, that's the way I understood it!
'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!'
'Cos you'll be up to your ears in pie and smoked fish.'
