Hiccup (v.o): Vikings are strong, tough, and courageous, but courage is a funny thing. Many are born with it. For some, it's a never-ending struggle, and for others, well, they just don't know enough to be afraid.
[The twins are currently fighting each other with shields as part of a combat class in the arena. After a few minutes, Ruffnut comes out victorious.]
Gobber: As I've said a million times, and as Ruffnut has demonstrated so splendidly, the shield can be your most important weapon. Who's next?
[Astrid punches her fist in excitement. Hiccup, on the other hand...]
Hiccup: Well, I-I don't think it's really fair for me to be fighting As--
[Astrid begins throwing a few punches at Hiccup. He flips her over his shoulder, then turns around with a smug grin on his face. It doesn't last long because Astrid then knocks him to the ground and puts him in a rather painful arm lock which he can't escape from.]
Gobber: When you're in a situation like this, it's best to remain calm and take deep breaths.
[Hiccup gives him a strained and annoyed look as if trying to say, "I can barely breathe at all."]
Gobber: When that's not an option, I would advise playing dead.
[Hiccup gives up struggling and drops his head to the ground.]
Gobber: Just like that. Well done, Hiccup. Good form, Astrid.
[Astrid releases her grip and lets Hiccup get up.]
