[We pull into a small cave, where Fishlegs is tied to a chair, being interrogated.]
Viking: Tell us what you know about the dragons, boy. Tell us how you train them!
Fishlegs: I won't talk! You can't make me!
Viking: Oh, I think we can.
[Suddenly, the lit torches in the cave go out, and Fishlegs is now bathed in an eerie darkness.]
Fishlegs: Hello? Is anybody there? Oh, you can't-- you can't leave me in here. Okay, okay! Hiccup is the leader of the Berk Dragon Academy! He owns a Night Fury named Toothless! Then there's Astrid! She's mean, but in a nice way. Her dragon is Deadly Nadder, shoots spines, loves chicken! Snotlout rides a Monstrous Nightmare, but were not actually sure who's more monstrous, him or the dragon! Then there's the Twins. They share a Zippleback, actually they fight over it.
[We hear the familiar sound of Toothless charging a plasma blast. He and Meatlug then light the other dragon Riders' torches, now revealing their annoyed expressions because Fishlegs failed the interrogation test.]
Fishlegs: What?! You KNOW I hate the dark!
Tuffnut: Great. Fishlegs? More like "Guppylegs". Jeez...
Hiccup: Fishlegs, you can't cave in! Alvin would do a lot more than turn out the light to get you to talk. He had me locked in a dungeon ready to be executed! Toothless was chained in muzzle for days. You need to stick with what we discussed: your name, where you live, and nothing else.
Fishlegs: All right, I'll work on it!
Astrid: "Mean"? I'm not mean.
Snotlout: It's okay, Astrid. I like mean girls.
Astrid: [disgusted] Ugh!
[The other Riders exit the cave, leaving behind a still tied up Fishlegs, and a now sleeping Meatlug.]
Fishlegs: Hey, girl. Can you untie me? Please?
Hiccup: Grounded? All the dragons? Are you serious?
Stoick: Deadly serious. From this point forward, there is a ban on flying, period.
Hiccup: What? What about patrolling, training?
Stoick: What part of "ban on flying" did you not understand, Hiccup?
Hiccup: But that's... That's ridiculous.
Stoick: I want that wall higher!
Viking: Aye, aye, sir!
Stoick: Are you calling your father ridiculous?
Hiccup: Of course not. I would never call my father ridiculous. I'm calling my chief ridiculous.
Stoick: Careful, son. You too, dragon.
Stoick: Put your backs into it, boys!
Hiccup: Dad, Alvin has his own dragons. Changewings, Scauldrons, Whispering Deaths... I saw them with my own eyes.
Stoick: Yes. When you were kidnapped and locked up in an Outcast prison.
Hiccup: He's also read The Book of Dragons, He's seen Astrid train a Monstrous Nightmare, and he still has Mildew, who, by the way, I really doubt will hold up under questioning.
Hiccup: If Alvin learns how to train his dragons and he attacks with them, our only chance is to fight back with ours.
Stoick: I understand that. But I'm not gonna risk your life or the lives of any of your Dragon Riders. This is my final word.
Astrid: And you agreed? Just like that?
Hiccup What other choice did I have? He's the chief, who also happens to be my incredibly overprotective father.
Astrid: Well, we have to get him to change his mind.
Fishlegs: Stoick the Vast? Um, good luck with that.
Snotlout: So what am I supposed to do with Hookfang if he can't fly?
Snotlout: You know what happens when is inner warrior is caged up?
[Hookang smacks him across the Academy with his burning tail.]
Snotlout: THAT is what happens!
Tufffnut: Whoa, we should have caged his inner warrior a long time ago. That was awesome!
Ruffnut: (chuckling) Yeah.
Hiccup: Look, I know this is going to be hard, but I'll keep working on my dad, and hopefully he'll change his mind.
Astrid: And what if he doesn't?
