Stoick: Gobber, for the last time, there is no such thing as a...
Gobber: Boneknapper?
[The crowd groans, "Boneknapper...?"]
Tuffnut: Oh ho! [beat] What-napper?
Gobber: A disgusting, foul beast, wearing a coat of stolen bones, like a giant, flying skeleton.
Fishlegs: Ooh ooh! The dragon manual says that the Boneknapper willl stop at nothing to find the perfect bone to build its coat of armor. It's awesome!

Hiccup: [sees Gobber going down to his ship with his sheep, Phil, to find the Boneknapper] I can't let him go by himself. [to his friends] All right, Vikings, grab your shields!
Teens: Yes!
Snotlout: There's no way I'm getting on a boat to go after a fake dragon.
[scene cuts to show Snotlout rowing a boat the next day with everyone else]

Gobber: The Boneknapper has no roar at all. That's why he's terrifying. He's a silent killer.
Ruffnut: Wait. So if we don't hear anything, we're dead?
[Everyone looks around the boat nervously.]
Tuffnut: I don't hear anything.
[Phil bleats and everyone jumps.]
Gobber: Ha ha ha! Good one, Phil!

Ruffnut: [as their boat sinks] Ugh. Now we're stuck in the middle of nowhere, and no one even knows where we are.
Fishlegs: Um, except the Boneknapper. Legend says its roar can s...
Snotlout: [interrupting] Hey, you know what legend also says? Stop talking!

Fishlegs: Uh, Gobber? Are you sure this is safe?
Gobber: Ah, safety's overrated.

[Gobber, in his flashback story, has been pinned by the Boneknapper at the edge of a cliff]
Gobber: [voice-over] I did what any brave Viking would have done... [high-pitched] Help! [voice-over] The gods must have heard my prayer... it was Thor! He tossed a mighty thunderbolt... [the bolt hits the ground below the cliff] Oh! You missed!
Thor: Wait for it...
Gobber: [voiceover] Then, from the center of the earth, blasted forth... the hammerhead yak riding the hammerhead whale!
Hammerhead Yak: Deploy the yak.

[after Gobber outlines his plan for trapping the Boneknapper]
Snotlout: [aside] It's sad when they get old.

[as everyone argues, Fishlegs sees the Boneknapper land behind them]
Fishlegs: Um, guys? GUYS!
Everyone: WHAT?
[The Boneknapper hisses.]
Hiccup: It's right behind us, isn't it?

[Taking cover from the Boneknapper's flames]
Snotlout: [rapidly, to himself] Find a happy place, find a happy place...

Snotlout: You expect us to believe that a frozen Viking punched you in the face?
Gobber: Yeah! Twice!
Hiccup: Hey, it could happen.

Gobber: All right, you've got me. Make it fast.
[the Boneknapper touches Gobber, then his pants fall down, the Viking teens looks away in disgust]
Hiccup: That's gonna give me nightmares.
Astrid: Well, at least we have a ride home.

Tuffnut: [sitting on the tail of the Boneknapper] This tailbone is hurting my tailbone!

[last lines]
Gobber: I think Stoick will believe me now, eh?
