How to Train Your Dragon script
Synopsis: Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a Norse teenager from the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. His progressive views and weird sense of humor make him a misfit, despite the fact that his father (Gerard Butler) is chief of the clan. Tossed into dragon-fighting school, he endeavors to prove himself as a true Viking, but when he befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless, he has the chance to plot a new course for his people's future.

Hiccup leans out of the stall to watch her.

HICCUP (V.O.)

Oh and that’s Fishlegs, Snotlout.

The twins Ruffnut and Tuffnut.

And...

(dreamy)

Astrid.

A SLOW-MOTION explosion erupts behind her, framing her in a

sexy ball of fire. The others join her, looking awesome and

heroic.

HICCUP (V.O.) (CONT’D)

Their job is so much cooler.

Hiccup tries to join them as they pass, but he's hooked by

Gobber and hoisted back inside.

HICCUP (CONT’D)

(pleading)

Ah, 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...

Gobber grabs a bola (iron balls connected by rope).

"Dragon" DeBlois/Sanders Final Draft (Rev.19) 02-13-2010 6.

GOBBER (CONT’D)

... you can’t even throw one of

these.

A Viking runs by and nabs it out of Gobber’s hand, hurling it

at a dive-bombing Gronkle. The bola binds its legs, sending

it into a heavy crash.

HICCUP:

(ready with the answer)

Okay fine, but...

He rushes to the back corner of the stall and presents a

bizarre, wheel barrow-like contraption.

HICCUP (CONT’D)

... this will throw it for me.

Hiccup OPENS the hinged lid of the device. An arm springs up,

equipped with twin bows. They prematurely launch a bola,

narrowly missing Gobber... and taking out a Viking at the

counter.

VIKING:

Arggh!

GOBBER:

See, now this right here is what

I'm talking about.

HICCUP:

Mild calibration issue.

GOBBER:

Hiccup. If you ever want to get out

there to fight dragons, you need

to stop all...
