Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 4, Episode 2 - Mako Mermaids - full transcript

Rita asks Ondina to keep Weilan, who is staying in the grotto, out of trouble. Joe tells David that he has called the Marine Police about the "sea monster" (but they didn't believe him) and that he will be calling the Marine Park, as well. Mimmi is reunited with Chris, who is now a dolphin trainer at the Marine Park. Weilan runs into Zac at the café where David warns them about his brother's actions. Weilan tries some clothes inside and overhears Ondina talk about her to Evie. Weilan confronts Ondina and learns that she thinks that Weilan has brought the water dragon and is endangering her Pod. Dr. Ross asks Joe to take Karl and dive around Mako Island to investigate Joe's "sea monster." Ondina brings her class to the Moon Pool, the magical heart of Mako Island, to teach them. Weilan visits Mimmi at work and they discuss her confrontation with Ondina, the water dragon, and the loss of her Pod. Joe informs David that two of the Marine Park's best men are investigating the "sea monster." David warns Weilan who tells Mimmi about their heat sensing equipment that will reveal even a cloaked mermaid. The two go off to find Ondina and the young mermaids. After Ondina dismisses her class, she sees Chris and hides, cloaked, in the Moon Pool. Mimmi and Weilan find Karl and watch him as they hide. Chris uses the heat sensor and "sees" Ondina, who fleas. Mimmi and Weilan find her and they use their combined magic to create a water spout to deter the divers from returning to further investigate. Ondina and Weilan make amends.

What happened?

Rita told Weilan
to make herself at home.

We live here, too.

I don't think Weilan realizes that.

That girl needs a serious talking to.

As much as I'd love
to stay and help...

I have to go to work.


Hi. So how did you sleep?

Ah, great.
It's so quiet down here.

Not like Shanghai.

Oh, what's Shanghai like?

It's big and modern.
It's a city of the future.

-I would love to go there.

Wouldn't you, Ondina?

I thought you were going to work.

-You work?
-At the Marine Park.

I still can't understand
why you have that job.

If you want to see dolphins,
take a swim in the sea.

You should come.

Ondina will tell you how to get there.
Right, Ondina?


I love this place. [chuckles]

It's so much bigger
than my apartment back home.

Yeah, we loved it, too...

when it was clean.


-Weilan, everything okay?
-Mmm-hmm. Great, thanks, Rita.

[Rita] Okay. Well, I have to fly,
so I'll see you after.



How long will she be staying
in our grotto?

[stammers] Uh, Weilan will be here
for as long as she's here.

And please remember
it's my grotto, not yours.


[sighs] Look, Weilan has been through
some really tough times.

I was hoping you and Mimmi
would make her feel welcome.

She endangered our pod.


I don't have time
to talk about this now.

Just keep an eye on her.

Make sure
she doesn't get into trouble.


[Ondina sighs]

[whimpers softly]


This isn't something
I expected to see.


A merman sitting in a café with a juice.

I thought you'd be out riding a whale,
or summoning up a storm.


Well, you ride one whale,
you've, uh... ridden them all.

Bro, bro, bro?
Can you believe it?

I just called the police
about the sea monster,

and they laughed at me.

-What did you tell them exactly?
-Well, what do you think?

I told them that a monster came up
out of the water and attacked our boat.

-But they didn't believe you?

That's why I need you to call them
and back up our story.

Oh, and make sure you sound
as scared as you did last night.

Hey, you were just as scared as I was.

Me? Nah. [scoffs]

Just a little excited, that's all.

-So, you gonna help me, or what?
-Maybe we didn't see a sea monster.

Are you... are you kidding?
You were standing right next to me.

I don't really know what we saw.

[stammers] You know what? Fine.

Okay? But don't come running to me
for a loan when I'm rich,

because I reckon there's a buck in this.

I'll try the Marine Park.

Maybe they'll listen.

How come you're not hanging
with the tail gang?

Ondina and I didn't exactly hit it off.

Ondina can be prickly.

-Giant sea urchin prickly.
-[David] Zac?

David, this is Weilan.
The girl we told you about.

Sorry about throwing you around the jetty.

Never mind that.
Joe's obsessed with the sea monster.

-He's going to the authorities about it.
-[Zac] Relax.

No one is going to believe him.

If you say so.

There you go.
And you can play with those in the bath.

Thank you.

Just make sure you don't touch it
on the forehead.

Real dolphins don't like that.


When did you get back?

-[boy clears throat]

Sorry. Mimmi, this is Karl.
Karl's new here.

He trained in San Diego as well,
but his specialty is sharks.

So you're the famous Mimmi.
I've heard a lot about you.

All of it good, I promise.

Hey, uh, notice anything?

You're a dolphin trainer.
I knew you could do it.

Without you I wouldn't have been able
to get into the training course.

Well, I was just happy to help.

We better get going.
Don't want to be late on our first day.

I'll catch up.

It's good to see you.

You've got to tell me
about San Diego sometime.

-I want to hear all about it.
-[Karl] Chris, are you coming?

Thank you.

[Evie] Hi, Weilan.

Just browsing,
or are you after something special?

Seeing as I'm going to be here
for a while,

I thought I should start dressing
like the natives.

You have some really nice stuff.

I try and keep the natives happy.

-Mind if I try this on?
-Sure. The change room's in there.

Hi, Ondina.

[sighs] Have you seen
our houseguest?

[Evie ] You mean Weilan?

[Ondina] Rita asked me to keep
an eye on her, but she ran out on me.

[sighs] I have no idea what goes on
in that girl's brain,

assuming she has one.

Uh, Ondina--

You should see
what she's done to the grotto.

-I can't wait till she's gone.

If she comes in,
just tell her I'm looking for her.

For your information...
I do have a brain.

Oh, great.

Look, I know you're not happy
about me being here.

-You got that right.
-We got off to a bad start,

but that doesn't mean
we have to be enemies.

You should give me a chance.
We could have fun together.

I'm not interested in fun.

See, right there is your problem.

I'm more concerned
with protecting the pod.

Something a real mermaid
would understand.


I am a real mermaid.

A real mermaid
would never endanger other mermaids.

-Meaning that I couldn't help but notice

that your arrival
coincided with the dragon's.

-You think I brought it?
-Didn't you?

Well, this has been fun.

Now I'm off to teach a class
of real mermaids.

[dolphin clicking]

[Dr. Ross] Chris?

There's probably nothing to this,

but I want you and Karl to go out to Mako
and do some diving.

Just... take a look around for me.

No problem.
What are we looking for?

You don't think Joe really saw
a sea monster?

Of course he didn't,
but he obviously saw something.

You know, scientists believe
that the Loch Ness Monster

is a plesiosaur
living inside caves in the loch.

I'm just saying, there's caves under Mako.

I'm pretty sure there's nothing there.

Yeah, but you can't be certain, can you?

Sharks are most often active at night,
which is when it's best to feed.

Surprisingly, they're a bit hard to see
in the dark.

[kids murmuring indistinctly]

So we use this heat-sensing equipment
to observe them.

If you were a shark...

this is what you'd look like.

[kid 1] Wow!
[kid 2] Whoa!

Sorry, guys.
That's it for today.

-Thanks for coming.
-That was awesome.

-That was great.
-[kids talking indistinctly]

How would you feel about
getting out into the real ocean?

Sure. What's up?

We're going on a monster hunt.


[all] Wow!

-Oh, my goodness.
-This is amazing.


The moon pool
is the magical heart of Mako...

so I suppose it's appropriate
that you should have your lessons in here.

Thanks, Ondina.
This is awesome.

Well, according to that guy's coordinates,
this is where he saw it.

I still think this is pointless.

Karl, global warming
is affecting ocean temperatures.

You know, water currents are changing.

This could bring up
all kinds of stuff from the deep.

[scoffing] Yeah, yeah.
Dream on.

[Mimmi] Glad you came!
Ondina told you how to get here?

[Weilan] It was Zac.

Ondina and I aren't exactly getting on.

Ondina takes some time
to warm to people.

But don't worry.

In a couple of days
it'll be like you're old friends.

More like a couple of centuries.

Ondina takes some getting used to,
but she has a good heart.

You could've fooled me.

I was trying to be friendly,
but she blew me off.

Said I wasn't a real mermaid.

Let's go get a drink.

[Weilan] So once we knew
there was no way of stopping the dragon,

the pod fled to
the only safe place... land.

Did you ever look for them?

China is a big country and...

my grandmother's old.

So we stayed in Shanghai and...

I pretty much became a land girl.

I can't imagine how hard
it must have been for you,

losing your pod.

It was... [chuckles] awful.

And that's why,
despite what Ondina thinks,

I would never do anything
to hurt your pod.

I'll have a word with her
and try and get her to lighten up.

So I should try talking to her in...
oh, about a year?

-[both chuckle]
-Well, I have to get back to work.

-Thanks for listening.

What are you up to now?

Well, Evie has a couple
of really nice dresses I want to try on.


Remember, we're gonna have to stay
in sight of each other.

Unlikely as it seems,
what if we find something?

Get pictures and we get out of there.

-Works for me.
-[air hissing]

Each of you is special.
Do you know why?

You're special
because you're part of the pod.

Your powers are strongest
when you work together.

We already did water balls.

Yes, I know.

Now catch!


Good. Now pass it on.



You're in a good mood.

I just spoke to the guy
in charge of the Marine Park.

He sent two of his best guys
to check it out.

-When are they going?
-They're out there right now.

Yeah, with some sort of
heat-sensing equipment.

So if that thing is down there,
they're gonna find it.


[whispers] Weilan!

Hey, David. What's up?

-The sea monster we saw...
-The water dragon?

Do you think it's still
hanging around Mako?


The dragon only forms
under the full moon,

so it's safe for the moment.

Why do you ask?

Well, that was a total bust.

We can't give up yet.

I don't see any sea monster.
Do you?

Maybe it doesn't want to be found.

Where would it go?

Well, there's caves under Mako.


[engine starting]

-Thank you.
-You're welcome.

[Weilan] Mimmi!

[Mimmi] Any luck with the dresses?

Some people from the Marine Park
are going to Mako to look for the dragon.

I know, but we don't have to worry.

You said the dragon won't appear
until the next full moon.

But Ondina's out there teaching.

Mermaids can cloak.

They've got some sort of gear
that can sense heat.

Mermaids might be able to cloak,
but their bodies are still warm.

[exhales sharply]

[Chris] The caves of Mako are uncharted,
so be careful.

Might take the heat sensor,
see if I can pick anything up.

-Mind if I borrow it?
-Go for it.

But if anything happens to it,
you're paying.

[Chris chuckles]

[air hissing]

[all laughing]

Good work.

Don't worry.
It just takes practice.

Have another go.

You've done very well today.
You should all be proud of yourselves.

Off you go.

-[all] Thank you, Ondina.
-See ya!

-Bye. Thank you.


This is where Ondina teaches.

Is there anywhere else she might be?

-Are you okay?

There was a land boy in the moon pool.

-Did he see you?
-I cloaked, but...

he kept looking at me
as if he knew I was there.

Something was in that cave.

-Did you get a picture?
-No, it was...

It was invisible.

You saw something invisible
in the cave.

I felt something brush past me
when I swam out.

Did you see something?

You mean the invisible thing?
Yeah, yeah, I saw that.

I'm going back in for another look.

I'm too low on air to dive again,
and you can't dive without me.

Sorry, buddy, but we're heading home.

-[Mimmi] It looks like they're leaving.
-It can't be soon enough for me.

They came looking for a dragon, remember?

-[Ondina] So?
-So, what if they keep looking?

There's a chance they could find the pod.

Weilan's right.
We can't risk them coming back.

So what do you suggest?
Sink their boat?

I think we can be
a bit more subtle than that.

I'm starving.
Fancy a burger on the way home?



-What is that?
-Some kind of current?

[all laughing]

I guess we've found the sea monster.

[Mimmi chuckles]
I think we scared them off.

No, no, no, no.
I know what I saw, all right?

That was the Marine Park.
They think I saw a waterspout.

-Well, maybe they're right.

I saw a sea monster, and so did you!

Waterspouts are common
in subtropical areas,

especially at this time of year.

We did see something.

-Didn't we?

diesel fumes can make your head spin,
and they certainly made me nauseous.

A waterspout?


[sighs] Did you clean up?

It was like this when I arrived.

Weilan must have done it.

You should be nice to her.
She's had it tough.

And we haven't?

Well, you said she was selfish.

She didn't have to help us today,
but she did.

That doesn't sound selfish to me.

-How did you go with Chris?
-It's all good.

He won't be going back to Mako.

-[all laugh]
-Score one for the mermaids.

The grotto looks nice.

Rita explained that you live here, too.

Sorry about the mess. [chuckles]

Anyone hungry?

I got this fresh from the café.

Mmm! Looks good.

Try some, Ondina.

The waterspout?

That was clever.


-You heard.

Was that a thank you?

Pretty big one, actually.

[all chuckle]

Mmm... lobster tail!

Hey! That's the best bit.

I know.

Well, I hope you're gonna share.

[chuckles] Make me.
