Sabrina, Down Under (1999) - full transcript

Sabrina travels to Australia's Great Barrier Reef with her best friend Gwen, a fellow witch from England, for a week-long vacation where they try to help protect a hidden mermaid colony whose habitat is threatened by ocean pollution, and by a local marine biologist, Dr. Julian Martin, determined to find the colony as his claim to fame. While Sabrina finds romance with Barnaby, a "merman" from the mermaid colony, Salem the cat finds a posible romance with another witch-turned-into-a-cat, named Hilary, but finds Sabrina's problems interfering with his plans.

She goes on for another

It's even more beautiful
than I'd imagined.

First time down under?

Yup, although for
being down under,

everything is surprisingly
right side up.

I've wanted to come
here ever since I read

this fantastic book
about the reef.

Oh, one of Dr. Martin's books.

Now there's a bloke who
spends more time underwater

than most fish.

Well, fortunately he writes
better than most of them too.

His research institute is
attached to the resort,

and supposedly guests
can dive with, look!

We crash, I die happy.

It's hard to imagine there's
a whole other universe

just below the surf...

Hey, did you see that?
I think I saw someone!

‐ In the water?
‐ Yeah, quick, turn around!

Are you sure? We're too
far out even for divers.

It was just a flash,
but I could have sworn.

(sighs) Well, I guess
22 hours in a plane

is really catching up with me.

No worries, the reef is
always playing tricks on people.

(majestic atmospheric music)

(upbeat music)

There it is, Hamilton Island.

Home to some of the best
diving in the world.

G'day, welcome
to Hamilton Island.

‐ Good day to you too.
‐ Sabrina!

‐ Gwen!

Oh, I'm so excited to see you.

How long have you been here?

I'm telling you, two
hours ago my beer can

turned into a kangaroo
and hopped away!

Oh, you're completely daft.

About two hours.

Gwen, I thought you promised

you weren't gonna use
your magic this vacation.

But I've been practicing.

I'm really a lot better than
the last time you saw me.

Watch.

Gwen, no!

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

Wicked, see, told you
I've been practicing.

Yeah, it'd be perfect if you
hadn't just given me a tail.

Oh, well, in my defense,

I didn't say I was good,
I just said I was better.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

(light atmospheric music)

Coming here is the best
idea you ever had, Sabrina.

This place has
absolutely everything!

And I mean everything.

I know two things it
doesn't have, Salem and Stony.

I can't believe we've
finally managed to escape

our furry chaperones.

Do you think a
week is long enough

to rebuild my self‐esteem?

SALEM: Finally,
a witch‐free week.

Saberhagen, you're
a genius. (chuckles)

You ever seen
this Saberhagen guy?

Nah, no one has, and he's
been coming here for years.

What kind of nutcase
spends a whole week

locked in a hotel
room with a mangy cat?

‐ (Salem screeches)
‐ Ah, he bit me!

Yeah, well, I'll probably
have to get a shot.

SALEM: Yeah, right,

and I'm gonna need
to wash my mouth out.

Blech.

Hm, note to self.

Get a case with more leg
room and better movies.

(gasps) Hello, paradise.

(upbeat music)

Hello, paradise.

So what are waiting for?

Let's get this vacation started.

We could go windsurfing,
hiking, snorkeling, waterskiing.

Okay, but the first
thing we have to do

is find the dive shop.

Oh, yeah.

Did I mention they
have snorkeling?

Front desk.

SALEM: Manager, please.

Mr. Saberhagen, I didn't
realize you'd arrived.

Why didn't somebody tell me
Mr. Saberhagen had arrived?

Nice fruit basket,

though you cheaped out
on the macadamia nuts.

I'll send someone
up immediately.

I need nuts!

You remember the
drill, don't you, Davie?

Of course, no one is ever to
enter your room unannounced,

and your cat Salem has
complete and total access

to the resort.

The staff have
already been alerted.

Alert the staff!

Your cat's every
whim is our desire.

Like it!

Remind me to needlepoint
that on a pillow.

Now patch me through to
room service, pronto.

(upbeat music)

Yeah, Sabrina, I'd
like you to meet Jerome.

Jerome, this is Sabrina.

Pleasure, Sabrina.

I was just telling your
pommy‐cobby here that

I was afraid there might be too
many steak and kidneys about,

but not the case, eh?

I'll pop and get us
some lolly water.

Hey, roo.

Doesn't he have
the cutest accent?

I can't understand a
thing he says, can you?

No.

I was hoping you could!

Sorry.

But who cares?

He's got dimples the
size of coconuts.

(both giggle)
(upbeat music)

‐ Excellent.
‐ There you go.

‐ Cheers, mate.
‐ Cheers.

There you go.

Ah!

Fruity, tropical.

(groans) It's cold!

Brain freeze, oh!

Brain freeze.

Whoo!

Oh, cheers!

You know, I could go for
a bite, what say you two?

Sammy's or dog's eyes?

I'm sorry, a little
slower and in English?

Preferably the Queen's.

(background commotion)

SNORKLER: Let go of me!

(shouting over each other)

How'd you like it if
somebody swimmin' in your house

and broke up your house!

Well you'll know how it feels

if I ever catch you
on my reef again!

Hey! It's him,
it's Dr. Martin!

The marine biologist?

Sounds as mad a gumtree
full of gallars.

He's not crazy,
he's brilliant!

He's the one who wrote the
book that I sent you, remember?

Didn't you just love...

You never read it, did you?

I meant to, really,
but I've been busy!

Well you try and find a
decent bathing suit in London!

Here.

Dr. Martin, hi, I'm Sabrina.

I'm a huge fan of yours and um,

well actually I was
thinking about becoming‐‐

Look at this. (chuckles)

They were gonna sell it.

Probably to some
idiot who wanted it

just because it
matched their drapes.

Becoming a marine biologist
and I was just wondering‐‐

Break it right off.

Do you have idea how long it
takes for this stuff to grow?

I think it's gelateria, one
of the slowest‐growing corals,

so probably about, 300 years?

That's right.

What did you say your name was?

Sabrina.

Julian Martin.

I get a little worked up when
people mess with my reef.

A marine biologist, huh?

Thinkin' about it.

Well hopefully my tirade
hasn't dissuaded you.

You know, I'm leading a
dive expedition tomorrow

and I'd be honored
if you would‐‐

Oh, first name on the list.

(peaceful music)

Hurry up!

Why?

The fish aren't even awake yet!

Ah, morning, Gwen!

Jerome!

Nothing like an exhilarating
dive to start your day.

Practically had to toss
my roommate out of bed!

(energetic rock music)

Your pineapple punch.

Sir.

When you're done here,
that crazy lady's Persian

needs another shrimp cocktail.

(waiter chuckles)

This is what I get for
being a cat person, huh?

(sighs)

Persian?

Her?

Well hello, pretty lady.

If she's really a cat,
then I'm a monkey's uncle.

Oh wait, I forgot.

My sister married an orangutan.

There's more to this experience
than just pretty colors.

There's life everywhere
that you look.

We're guests here, it's
important to remember that.

All right then, tanks checked,
everybody got a dive buddy?

Gwen, what do you
say, you and me?

I'd love to!

Gwen!

If I hadn't already
promised, uh...

‐ Sabrina?
‐ Sabrina!

Right.

Let's go!

Is this the most incredible

Don't you wish we could
stay down here forever?

You mean after Jerome teaches
me how to windsurf, right?

What am I saying?
I don't have to wish.

Sabrina, don't do anything‐‐

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

(peaceful music)

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

Ah!

Scales, very in this year.

(upbeat music)

Hello, my name is Saberhagen.

Salem Saberhagen.

And I couldn't help noticing
we have a lot in common.

We wear the same
brand of sunglasses,

and we're both people
trapped in the body of a cat.

I'm Hilary, and at the risk
of starting a conversation,

what gave me away?

I don't know, maybe a
certain something in your eye?

Or that copy of
Vogue you're reading.

So what do you say, Hilary?

You, me, the sea, the
moon, some cat nip?

You know what I say, Salem?

Yes?

I say, I didn't fall for
creeps like you when I was a

woman so I'm certainly
not gonna fall for them

now that I'm a cat.

I'll take that as a maybe!

Oh, shrimp!

(playful music)

(Sabrina gasps)

Only one drawback
to being a fish.

(spits)

Salt water, bleugh!

Hm.

The blue spot butterfly fish!

Hey, don't you know you're
supposed to be extinct?

Fish.

Cute, but lousy
conversationalists.

Hey, little fish!

Come back, I just wanna...
(tense music)

Huh? (gasps)

(screams)

Ow.

Hey! Excuse me.

Oh, pardon me.

Hey, hey watch the fin, buddy!

Whoo, this fish business
is harder than I thought.

With the eels and the sharks
and the, (gasps) shark!

(suspenseful music)

(peaceful music)

Woo!

Two snaps away from being
the catch of the day.

Oh!

Hey!

I'd be much more upset if
this didn't tickle so much.

Woo!

I didn't know you could
get seasick under water.

Oh!

Oh, no you don't.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

Bully!

(relaxing music)

Sabrina's so good!

With my luck I would
have turned myself

into the Loch Ness Monster!

(screams)
(man screams)

Oh! What a fun
way to say hello.

Where I'm from, we
usually just shake hands.

I'm sorry.

You startled me!

Well, I'm startled
to meet you too.

I'm Barnaby.

Gwen.

What happened to your shoulder?

Did you brush up
against some coral?

Uh no, it's kind of why...

Gwen!

Sabrina!

You'll never
guess what I found.

I'd like you to
meet Barn... niby?

Barnaby, Jerome, aren't
there any guys in England?

But! He...

Probably really cute, come on!

We gotta go find Dr. Martin.

(upbeat music)

‐ Anything else, Miss Hexton?
‐ No.

Now be good a boy
and toddle along.

Surprise!

(Hilary gasps)

What are you doing here?

What are you wearing?

Get out!

(melancholic music)

(Salem sobs)

I wish I could
remember why that seemed

like such a good idea.

(sobs)

She hates me.

Dr. Martin, you'll
never guess what I saw.

Ceridon Pelivius.

What, the blue
spot butterfly fish?

‐ Sabrina, that fish is‐‐
‐ Extinct, I know!

Are you sure?

Yellow with the blue
oval vertical black bend

through the eye and mouth
and a false eye on the tail?

I saw a bunch of
shiny yellow ones!

(energetic rock music)

Is this what you saw?

Exactly, although it's
a lot smaller in person.

Incredible, no one has
seen that fish for 50 years.

And I still can't
figure out how you did.

They live deep down inside the
reef, never out in the open.

Oh, well I guess this
one got lost. (chuckles)

You understand we're gonna
have to verify the sighting.

SABRINA: Is that you?

Years ago.

Spent a lot of time between
Russian harpoons and whales.

Foolish, but worth it.

Julian!

We have another dolphin
beached over at Paradise Cove.

Looks fairly critical.

What's wrong?

The abnormally‐high
toxin level in the water

on the other side of the
island is causing some of the

larger marine mammals
to get sick and die.

Die? Is there
anything you can do?

Well if we're lucky to
get to them early enough,

they stand a good chance,
but dolphins and whales

aren't great about
seeking medical attention.

They become weak and
disorientated and

they're susceptible
to predators.

It's usually accompanied by a
rash on their fins and tails.

But what's causing it?

(Julian sighs)

Well I'm fairly certain
that a ship has recently begun

illegally dumping its
waste into the ocean,

but I don't have any proof.

The resort is fanatical about
prosecuting offenders but,

it's almost impossible
to catch them in the act.

I'll talk to you
later about your fish.

(phone rings)

Hello, Hilary?

No, I'm sorry, but Miss
Hexton has sent back your

very generous gift.

I know it's none of
my business, sir, but,

might I suggest, next
time you try flowers?

[Salem] Okay,
thank you. (sobs)

(Sabrina and Gwen giggle)

What a smashing holiday
this has turned out to be.

You find a supposedly
extinct fish,

and I might have a boyfriend!

The odds of either
are incredible.

What's that?

Oh, no!

I think it's a dolphin!

(dark atmospheric music)

Gwen, it's not a dolphin.

(music swells)

(dark atmospheric music)

Barnaby?

Sabrina!

It's the guy I was
talking to on the reef!

I had no idea he was a mer...

Man.

Oh and the giant fish tail
didn't you at all suspicious?

Help me try to find a pulse.

What's the matter with him?

Is he gonna be all right?

I don't know but
he's still breathing

or whatever it is merguys do.

We have to try to
revive him somehow.

GWEN: Did that help?

Yeah, I was
getting a little hot.

I was thinking more
along the lines of

mouth‐to‐gill resuscitation?

(bubbling water)

Spout, we're too
late, humans have him.

What are we gonna do?

I don't know if we should be
forcing water into his lungs

or out of them.

I really think he needs
to be back in the water.

You can't just roll him back
into the ocean, he'll drown!

Or maybe he's drowning now!

People!

Okay, this isn't gonna
be easy to explain.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

I didn't know
they could do that.

(whooshing)

Quick, let's get
him to the tub.

(maid screams)

(splashing)
(maid yelps)

What have you been
practicing, the piano?

You really should get that
air conditioner fixed,

it's been drippin'
all day. (chuckles)

‐ (playful music)
‐ (grunts)

Got him?

Can you believe it?

Just a hot dog and
a piece of string.

Dear, Aunt Eunice.

Having a wonderful time,
thrilled you're not here.

Huh?

Sabrina, be careful!

He's slippery.

Sabrina?

Salem?

My kingdom for a sushi shub.

Nice fish.

Hurry, we've gotta
get him into some water.

Bend with the knees!

And this better not take long,

I've got a massage
in 20 minutes.

SABRINA: Ah! That's a shower!

GWEN: Sorry!

Hello?

Salem?

(Gasps) Hilary?

I wanted to
apologize for earlier.

My therapist says I can
be a little judgmental,

and you seem like a
decent flea‐free guy.

I'll get the magic book!

Salem, I need
salt and lots of it.

Who has a room full of women.

There's a very
simple explanation!

Wow, this place is messier
than your place at home.

Do you think this is enough?

Does it sound like the
water's overflowing?

Just not one I can
think of at the moment.

Excuse me.

Not a problem, I
was just leaving.

(Salem stammers)

SALEM: No, Hilary, don't go!

A random talking cat, I'd
be a little bit more curious

if I didn't have an unconscious
merman in the bathtub.

I've got it!

There's a whole chapter
on sea creatures!

SALEM: Well, I
hope you're happy.

I can't believe you came
halfway around the world

to destroy my vacation.

I came halfway around the
world to get away from you!

Don't try and
sweet talk me now.

I thought you took your
vacations on Nantucket.

That's just what
I tell people.

‐ I value my privacy.
‐ So do I!

Why do you think I've
been talking about

coming here for months?

I even gave you that book
to read about this place!

Oh, never read it.

At least I'm not the only one.

But I am using it
to press flowers.

Now kindly get the comatose
fishboy out of my tub

and get off my island.

‐ Your island?
‐ He's waking up!

The salt water's working!

(Barnaby gasps)
(splashing water)

BARNABY: Who are you?

Calm down, quit splashing!

He's getting water everywhere.

(Barnaby groans)

Your animal, it talks!

Yeah, but he never
has much to say.

Barnaby, don't
you remember me?

Gwen, we met on the reef?

Oh, yeah.

Startled to see you again.

We're trying to help
you, we found you washed up

on the beach and we brought
you back to our tub.

My tub, which now
smells like old tuna.

Oh.

The last thing I remember
is being chased by a boat.

Normally I'd have no
trouble getting away,

but I've been so tired.

Well why were you even
swimming around out there?

I thought mythical creatures
were supposed to keep hidden.

Ask any unicorn.

Well actually, it's
forbidden to have contact

with leg‐walkers, humans.

I was gonna ask
you for help but,

I got scared when she showed up.

I tried again with the
next group I found but,

they weren't as nice.

Is it about your shoulder?

Looks like some sort of fungus.

I thought it was a bruise.

No, there's more
on his tail, look.

Do you live on the other
side of the island?

Sabrina, how'd
you know all this?

This is what Dr. Martin's
been telling me all about.

He has all the symptoms.

Barnaby,

if you don't get it treated
right away it could be‐‐

Fatal, I know.

Well that's why I didn't
think I had anything to lose.

We've gotta find a way to
get Dr. Martin to look at him.

Sabrina, I might not have
noticed his tail straight away

but I'm pretty that
Dr. Martin will.

He is a scientist, after all.

Unless...

Barnaby, the rest of the world
might not be as comfortable

with your tail as we are.

But there may be
a way to, change it.

See, there's a
whole bunch of forces

that make up the Universe.

Circumstances that
can't be easily explained.

And while we may look like
a bunch of normal leg‐walkers,

‐ we're...
‐ Unique.

Oh, for the love
of, they're witches!

‐ Salem!
‐ (Barnaby laughs)

Witches, yeah right!

What do you take
me for, a sea slug?

(laughs)

Even I know witches don't exist.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

You know, for a
guy with a tail,

you're extremely narrow‐minded.

(playful music)

Serpents, sea monsters,
sirens, a recipe for buliabase.

There! Mermaids!

Oh, I don't know about
this one, Sabrina.

There's no reversing spell!

Sabrina, hurry up!

(Salem moans)

I don't like the way your
cat is looking at me!

Maybe broiled with a
little garlic butter.

No! Smothered in cornbread
batter and deep‐fried.

Look, he's starting
to foam at the mouth!

Actually, brainiac's
been eatin' soap.

Kinda tastes like starfish.

It's not for eating!

Okay, we found a spell that'll
give you legs for 48 hours.

Legs, really? You mean
like the two of you?

Hopefully not just like
the two of them, or you'll be

headlining in the Sydney
production of Victor Victoria.

Once we've changed you,
the spell can't be reversed.

You have to let
it run its course.

So? I always wondered what
it would be like to have legs.

I'm ready when you are.

Give him a towel.

Spoil sport.

Water and sand, land and air,

give me a male
with legs to spare.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

Look, I've got legs!

Look at me, I'm standing!

Oh, sure.

The fish gets to be
a man, but the cat?

No!

(playful music)

(Chuckles) They
might look ridiculous

but they seem to
work pretty well!

Hey.

‐ What are these?
‐ Pockets!

You know, you put things
in 'em like gum, keys.

Garbage.

This is the most incredible
place I've ever seen.

BIKER: Crazy congo,
watch where you're goin'!

Oh, okay you don't need to add

any of those words
to your vocabulary.

SALEM: Now might be
a bad time to mention,

I'm afraid of heights. (sobs)

MAN: Come on,
mate, put it down.

Look!

Sorry.

Surfer, one too many
boogie boards to the head.

‐ Wait, what's that?
‐ Look, look.

Be fascinated in
this direction, okay?

Dum de dum dum dum.

Whoa! Now that's a mouse.

G'day mate!

Hey, that's my sandwich!

(sobs)

Bully.

What have they done to him?

They've turned him to
some kind of mutant.

Spout!

No, come back!

(Spout squeaks)

Spout!

This is spout!

Spout, Sabrina and Gwen.

We've met. Hi.

Pleasure.

I know, they're pretty cute.

What?

Fin?

My sister, Fin!

Look, aren't they great?

They're disgusting.

Make them change you back I
can't even stand to look at you.

Come on, Fin, be reasonable.

They're just tryin' to help.

(dark music)

Sorry you had to hear that.

She's not the biggest
fan of humans.

(Sighs) I know if I suddenly
saw my brother with legs,

I'd be a little upset too.

Currently, he's a tree.

Don't ask. Mother still
hasn't forgiven me.

Maybe she'll
change her opinion

once we get you to a doctor.

What is this,
some kind of joke?

It's not a joke, I
took the pictures myself.

We were out looking for your
blue spot butterfly fish when

this, this thing just appeared.

It's gotta be some play
of light, it's a dolphin.

Nah, it's not a dolphin!

We chased it for
over half an hour.

And where do you
think it was heading?

ASSISTANT: Got no
idea, could be anywhere.

I don't know if somebody's
having a huge laugh at our

expense or we
really have mermaids

swimming around out there.

But I'll tell you one
thing, I'm gonna find it.

SABRINA: Excuse me,
Dr. Martin?

(playful music)

(upbeat percussive music)

You got this anywhere else?

Yeah, I have some on my tail.

Bone, uh, his tailbone and
uh, some on his legs too!

I don't believe it.

But I think you might
be right, Sabrina.

This appears to be
almost identical

to what's been affecting
the marine mammals.

And you said you
could treat it, right?

If you catch it in time?

I said we've had some success
with dolphins and whales.

But if it's the same
disease, then wouldn't it work

on a mer, uh, Barnaby?

This is beginning
to affect humans.

Why haven't we seen it before?

Uh, so what do you
use, an ointment,

an antibiotic, a shot?

What?

To cure it.

An ointment.

Great! So let's try
it and see if it works.

If it does, great.

If it doesn't, well,
let's hope it does.

Sabrina!

Barnaby?

I think I have
some water in my ear.

Oh, (chuckles) swimmer's
ear, he's always in the water.

It's probably how this
happened in the first place.

(gushing water)

Phew.
That's better.

Oh, look!
(twinkles)

You got a leak in one
of your fish tanks.

Well, um...

Thanks for lookin' at
him, really appreciate it.

Gotta go.

Oh and uh, you might wanna...

Okay well, that went well.

At least up until you turned
into a giant fountain.

Are you sure whatever
you saw had a tail?

I'm positive, you've
got the pictures, why?

There's some discoloration
on the left shoulder.

They're almost identical
to marks on the guy that

Sabrina just brought in.

(suspenseful music)

Against my better judgement,
I'll believe your story

‐ and accept your apology.
‐ Thank you.

Besides, I'm bored
out of my whiskers

and you're the only other
talking cat on this rock.

In other words, beggars
can't be choosers.

Correct.

Yes!

I knew you'd come around.

Once every two
hours and by tomorrow

you should be as good as new.

Do you mind if I
pop out for a bit?

I'm finally gonna get
that windsurfing lesson.

Do I have to stay in here
to make this stuff work?

I don't think so, why?

'Cause I got legs and
48 hours to use 'em!

Let's go!

‐ Okay, Saberhagen.
‐ (phone rings)

‐ Play it cool.
‐ (phone rings)

Hilary, it's Salem.

I just wanted to tell you
what a great time I had today,

and I was wondering if you'd
like to join me for dinner

tomorrow evening.

(high‐pitched chatter)

Yes, yes, yes!

Oh, she likes me,
she really likes me!

I mean...

See you at eight.

Mm.

What do you call
this stuff again?

‐ Ice cream.
‐ It's great.

Better than squid guts.

(upbeat music)
(cheering)

Thank you everything, Sabrina.

Today's really been magical.

Yeah, I was just
thinkin' the same thing.

What?

I don't know how
humans show affection.

We touch tails when we wanna
show that we care for someone.

Oh, well we hug.

You know, wrap our
arms around each other.

Or, we kiss.

Kiss?

Yeah, we touch
our lips together.

‐ Really?
‐ (Sabrina chuckles)

Yeah, it doesn't
sound quite as romantic

when you have to explain it.

Do you have someone back
home you do that with?

Yeah, I do.

Well he's very lucky.

Thanks.

Oh, and trust me, the kissing
part, it grows on you.

(Spout squeaks)

Spout!

Oh you're not gonna believe
the day I've had, it's been‐‐

(Spout clicks and squeaks)

What? How bad?

What's the matter?
What's he squeaking?

It's Fin, she's sick!

Such a barnacle sometimes!

Here I am thinking
only of myself

running around these stupid...

I've gotta go to her.

Barnaby!

But I can't swim.

Sabrina, you have
change me back, now.

I can't.

The spell won't reverse
itself for another 36 hours.

I'm sorry.

But, the medicine worked on you,

it should work on her as well.

She'll never come here.

What if I took it to her?

You'd do that?

Oh, Sabrina, thank you!

What's the matter?

Aren't I doing it right?

No, it's fine!

But, I think you just poured
ice cream down my back.

Oh.

(peaceful music)

Maybe I should just tell
Dr. Martin about Barnaby.

I know he'd do everything
he could to help.

And how are you gonna
explain about the legs?

It'd be the same as
telling him you're a witch!

You can't.

I know.

All right, go get Barnaby,
I'll meet you at the dock.

(suspenseful music)

Shoot.

There goes the "it just
fell into my bag" excuse.

(twinkles)

Dr. Martin, you're up early.

I just needed more ointment.

I could see that.

Your friend's still sick?

No, he's a lot better but I,

I found a dolphin I
thought could use some.

A dolphin.

They're seeking you out
for medical advice now.

If other things are
coming down with this...

I just wish you thought you
could trust me, Sabrina.

I do trust you, it's just...

I wouldn't do this if it
wasn't really important.

Well we don't want any sick
dolphins swimming around,

but I think I've got some
more of this in my office.

(suspenseful music)

(bleeping)

Hope you didn't mind having
to share a room with Salem.

Of course, no one's
concerned that gill‐breath here

kept me up half
the night snoring.

No, we had a great
time, I love pay‐per‐view.

Way to play it cool, merboy.

Okay, I got it.

Where's Spout?

(Barnaby whistles loudly)

Dolphins have the
worst sense of time.

I think I speak for
all of us when I say, ow.

(Spout squeaks)

(splashing)

Hang on.

He'll get you there in no time.

Dolphin, it's the
only way to travel!

I wish I had a
dolphin to ride.

Hm?

Can't be too hard, can it?

Sabrina always says it's just
a matter of concentration.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

(Salem sobs)

[Salem] Not good!

(splashing)

Oh.

Frizzle.

(energetic music)

(peaceful music)

MERMAN: Hey, leg‐walker!

Don't go away!

Barnaby sent me!

I'm here to help!

(twinkling)

(bleeping)
(suspenseful music)

(suspenseful music)

Barnaby sent me to help!

I have medicine!

You're not being
very hospitable.

Fin!

FIN: We don't need your help.

Fin, your tail, you're sick.

I said we don't need you here.

Barnaby jeopardized
the whole colony

when he revealed
himself to humans.

I'm not like
every other human.

I have secrets of my own.

You can trust me.

Nothing will ever be the same.

I'd rather die than have you
perform your sorcery on me.

Healing the sick is still
done the old‐fashioned way.

No magic.

Well we weren't sick until
humans showed up on our island.

The people on the island
aren't causing you to get sick.

They're trying to put
a stop to it right now.

Fin, I don't know how
to make you understand,

but I promise you that nothing
bad will happen to you,

your brother or your
colony, you have my word.

Is Barnaby really okay?

He's great.

He got his strength back
and his shoulder's almost

completely cleared up.

He'll be home tomorrow.

May I?

Fine.

But if I somehow end up with
legs, you're in big trouble.

(Sabrina chuckles)

That lagoon's completely
inaccessible to boats.

She certainly didn't
have any problem.

I'll find a way in.

Call the Sydney Aquarium.

See if they got
a tank I can use.

Just in case I find
anything out there.

Wanna make sure I've
got a place to keep it.

(suspenseful music)

(upbeat music)

There, all done.

I'll leave the rest
of this with you.

Hopefully I can find some more
to send back with Barnaby.

Thanks for helping, Sabrina.

Sorry I've been so difficult.

That's all right, I'll
be the first to admit

we're not the easiest
species to get along with.

(Fin chuckles)

Oh, where are my manners?

You want something to
eat? You must be famished.

Actually, I am a little hun...

Full, from breakfast.

Are you sure?

It's delicious.

Never been so sure in my life.

(playful music)

Sabrina, you've
been gone for hours.

We were starting to get worried.

Once that Fin lets
her scales down,

she turns into a real talker.

She wasn't telling
stories, was she?

Maybe.

Let's just say Barnaby
here went through

a really awkward phase.

(Gwen giggles)

You're Salem's
tormentors, right?

Have you seen him lately?

I've been gone all day.

He just sort of disappeared.

We thought he was
spending the day with you.

Well, we have a confirmed
dinner reservation,

so I'm sure I'll see him then.

Ta.

She sure was right
about the hot dog.

Yeah, but that's gotta be
the ugliest fish I've ever‐‐

(spraying water)

SALEM: You ain't too
easy on the eyes yourself.

(gentle piano music)
(faint chatter)

Would you like to
hear the specials?

No, I don't suppose you do.

Your owner already
called in your order.

I'll send a waiter right...

Why am I even talking to you?

(sighs) Wow, I was asking
myself that same question.

Hm, he's late, and I didn't
hear from him once today.

More than curiosity is
going to kill that cat

if he stands me up.

Unless we can figure out
who and what is making you all

sick and stop it, the ointment
isn't gonna do much good.

But you said that Dr. Martin
thinks the toxins are caused

by illegal dumping.

Yeah but it could take months
to catch whoever's doing it.

We talked about
moving the colony.

We got nowhere we'd go.

We're very protected
here, or we had been.

Maybe you're right, Sabrina.

I don't know if we can do this
without Dr. Martin's help.

Good evening.

If you'd like to follow
me, you may select a fish

from our tank and we'll
prepare it to order.

Okay, we're all set, though
I had to do a little fast

talkin' when they asked what
you needed the tank for.

I've gone over all the
charts and I think I've found

a way into the lagoon.

We're gonna have to dive
but we can still take nets,

video equipment.

Are you sure we should be
talking about this in here?

You afraid the cat's
gonna tell someone?

Oh, like the cat
gives a flying fig

what you're talking about.

Men, I swear they think the
world revolves around them.

I feel kinda weird.

What if these are some of
the fish I met yesterday?

This one.

Oh uh, excellent choice, sir.

May I take that for you?

‐ Uh no, I'm fine.
‐ Uh, Barnaby.

Give the fish to the man.

Choices, choices.

SALEM: Boo!

(Gwen gasps and screams)

‐ Gwen, what's the matter?
‐ Look!

SALEM: Sabrina!

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

(splashing)

You could have gotten me
out of the tank first.

(patrons murmuring)

Uh, I think I'll
just have a salad.

I'm wet, and smell like fish.

I've lost the woman of my dreams

and she ate all
the bread sticks.

(sobs)

(phone rings)
(peaceful music)

Hilary?

Finally!

I've been calling for
three hours straight.

I was gettin' worried
that you were avoiding me!

‐ (high‐pitched chatter)
‐ Oh, you were.

I'm sorry for standing
you up tonight,

but there's a very
simply explanation, I‐‐

(high‐pitched chatter)

Yes, it's better than my
merman in the bathtub excuse.

(stammers)

I was accidentally turned
into a catfish and‐‐

‐(engaged tone)
‐ Hello.

Hello.

(sobs) No, no.

Pick up!

(suspenseful music)

Thank you, thank you, thank
you for finally forgiving me.

[Hilary] If you're trying
to apologize for last night,

getting me up before dawn to
walk to the other side of the

island isn't cutting it.

I promise, it'll be worth it.

Tada!

We're here, one perfect sunrise.

Oh, Salem.

It's glorious.

Okay, let's get a couple of
shots for the folks back home.

Say Salem is super!

How about I stick with cheese?

Although, Salem is pretty cute.

(Salem chuckles)

SALEM: Hold it.

(camera clicks)

Barnaby turns back
into a merman today.

Are you gonna be okay with that?

Yeah, I just wish there
was more we could do.

What?

Well, I decided I'm
gonna talk to Dr. Martin.

He's a scientist, right?

He'll be rational.

Anyway, I have to ask
him for more ointment.

‐ I promised Fin that...
‐ (bleeping)

‐ What's that?
‐ I don't know.

Looks like a tracking device.

The kind they tag whales
with to follow them.

You don't think he put that
in your bag on purpose do you?

I don't know how else it
could have gotten in there.

Then he knows
where the colony is!

Find Barnaby.

Now I definitely have
to talk to Dr. Martin.

(suspenseful music)

Hello?

Dr. Martin?

Dr. Martin!

Mm‐Hm.

Hm.

I don't know about you, but
I think they're kinda arty.

Hey, have either of
you seen Dr. Martin?

Whoa.

These are almost as bad
as the picture you took

for last year's Christmas
card, nothin' but knees.

I heard your doctor friend
talk about storming some lagoon

this morning.

He was quite full of himself.

Oh no, I hope
it's not too late.

Hey.

Can I keep this one?

Thanks, gotta go.

Is she always like this?

Pretty much.

SABRINA: Dr. Martin?

Dr. Martin.

Sabrina, good morning.

Just heading out to verify
your Ceridon Pelivius sighting.

I'll let you know
if we have any luck.

You're not going out to look
for my fish, unless you think

it's in a lagoon on the
other side of the island.

It seems you're always one
step ahead of us, Sabrina.

Why would you do this?

You weren't honest with me
so I wasn't honest with you.

Sorry, but you made the rules.

This isn't a game!

You can't go there, please you
don't know what you're doing.

I know more about
this reef than you could

ever hope to know.

If there is something out
there, I'm gonna find it.

And thanks to you, I know the
first place I'm gonna look.

I'm not gonna let you do this.

I would like to see
you try and stop me.

Go, go!

Watch me.

(suspenseful music)

Sabrina.

Sabrina. Is it true?

Does he know where
the colony is?

‐ Yeah, but‐‐
‐ You can't just stand here.

You gotta do something!

I can't even swim there
to try and warn 'em.

Please, change me back.

I don't wanna be a man.

There's less than an hour
before the spell reverses itself

just calm down, okay?

We're not gonna let anything
happen to the colony.

I say we zap in a tsunami
or maybe a giant squid!

Just, brain‐storming.

I can't even see
the boat anymore.

Maybe I could see
'em from the lookout.

Barnaby, wait!

He's really getting
the hang of those things.

(sighs) I wish we could just
conjure up a huge storm.

That would keep them
away from the lagoon.

‐ Gwen, that's a great idea!
‐ Really?

Yeah, it's perfect, come on.

I've wanted to try this
spell since I got my license.

Now this is what
I call heaven.

You, me.

Alone with 11 picnic
baskets and now‐‐

Distractions?

Pay no attention to fishboy.

More pate, hm?

Sabrina, are you
sure about this?

Weather spells can
be very dangerous.

Of course I'm sure!

Well, pretty sure.

I can at least try, can't I?

Well, be careful.

(suspenseful music)

Waves to toss
with violent motion,

squall upon a tranquil ocean,

clouds and rain,
thunder and lightning,

give me a storm that's
truly frightening.

(rumbling)
(twinkles)

GWEN: Wicked,
Sabrina, you did it!

BARNABY: Wow.

Sabrina created a huge storm.

(cracking and rumbling thunder)

Where did that come from?

We can't take this
kind of weather.

We're gonna have to turn around.

(rumbling thunder)

Yeah!

Hoo‐hoo, they're turning around!

So!

Read any good books lately?

You did it!

They're coming back!

See?

Nothing to it, I don't know
what you were so worried‐‐

(cracking thunder)
(screams)

Sabrina!

Salem, something's
wrong with Sabrina!

What's the matter?

I think she's hurt.

(muffled chatter)

Follow me!

I'm sorry, but‐‐

Just go already!

I, I love you.

What did he say?

Oh please, just this once.

(whooshing)
(twinkles)

Oh, thank goodness
we're not in Greenland.

Go!

What's the matter with
this stupid animal?

It's lazier than a sea cow!

Turn it on!

The key.

Turn the key, bait‐head!

(car starts)

Just release that handle.

Hm‐hm, then push down
the paddle to your...

(screams)
(tires screech)

Scratch that! Turn the wheel!

The other way!

Where am I? What happened?

We're back in the room.

You blasted yourself
right out of the ocean!

But don't worry,
you'll be all right.

You just need a little rest.

But it worked?

Yes, but that spell has three
pages of warnings attached

to it, the first of which,
don't stand in the water.

I knew I was
forgetting something.

My neck is killing me.

That should pass, but the
electric charge is gonna

interfere with your magic
for a couple of hours!

Well, hopefully
if the storm worked,

I won't need it for a while.

(Salem sobs)

Just my luck, I meet
the woman of my dreams,

then I die in a fiery car crash.

‐ Look out!
‐ (blaring card horn)

(screeching tires)

Let's go, hurry up, come on!

We've gotta secure the
Institute before the storm hits!

Thanks.

I'm already feelin'
a little bit better.

Is that the time?

BOTH: Barnaby!

I knew I could
tame this beast.

Hm.

‐ Huh?
‐ (twinkles)

Uh‐oh!

(whooshing)

Get your smelly
flipper out of my,

look out!

(screeching tires)

Brakes.

Brakes!

Brakes!

No. (sobs)

(screeching tires)

Phew.

Hey, doc.

Shoulder's really
doin' a lot better.

(dark atmospheric music)

(excited background chatter)

Where's everyone going?

Barnaby! Where is he?

He knows this is the first
place we'd look for him.

Sea monster's back, least
we won't have to worry about

Dr. Martin for a while.

SALEM: (grunts) Think again!

‐ Salem, what happened?
‐ Oh, Sabrina, it was awful.

I may never ride in a car again.

I meant to Barnaby.

Oh, Martin captured
him and has him locked up

in the resort swimming pool.

‐ We've gotta go get him out.
‐ Sabrina, is it true?

Have they captured Barnaby?

I was worried when
he didn't come back.

‐ Yes it's true but‐‐
‐ But you promised that

nothing would happen to him.

To us.

‐ You gave me your word.
‐ Sabrina, look,

I think it's a
news helicopter.

I'm gonna be on television.

Fin, I'm sorry.

Barnaby was a fool
to have trusted you.

Let's just hope I can
save the rest of us.

(dramatic music)

(murmuring crowd)

JULIAN: Excuse me.

‐ Excuse me.
‐ (splashing)

How's he doin'?

Fine, he's got a
delightful sense of humor.

Made the arrangements.

The transportation to
Sydney's on its way,

and CNN just landed.

What?

Stupid earpiece.

This is Wally Gilliams
reporting live

from the Hamilton Island Resort
on the Great Barrier Reef

where we have just received
unconfirmed reports

that noted marine biologist
Dr. Julian Martin has captured

what observers say can only
be described as, a merman.

Now, details about this
purported half‐man, half‐fish,

are a bit sketchy at this
time, however we will keep you

updated as more information
becomes available.

(crowd murmuring)

Who told you to call the
press? This is my show!

And it's my pool.

If you really have
a merthing in there,

then this resort is
definitely showing the prize.

We'll never be able to get
him out through this crowd.

Maybe if we go
around the other side.

Salem, go find him
and see if he's okay.

[Salem] You can count
on, oh, macadamia nuts!

Go!

G'day, Gwen, I've been
lookin' all over for ya.

Gwen, we're in
a hurry, remember?

I'm not gonna confirm
or deny anything.

I'll be right back.

Excuse me a moment.

Sabrina.

I suppose we have you to thank
and to blame for all this.

Who's the poacher
now, Dr. Martin?

‐ (Gwen laughs)
‐ Gwen, we have to go.

Sabrina, Jerome was just
telling me the funniest...

I've gotta go.

What are you sheilas
lookin' at me so funny for?

At this point, Dr. Martin
is answering all reporters'

questions with a
flat "no comment"

so therefor we are still unable
to substantiate any reports

that in fact a merman
has been captured.

We can tell you, however, that
the mystery seems to revolve

around the resort's pool
where it has become clear

that in fact some
thing or someone

is being kept from public view.

Just recently the entire
pool area was closed down

to all the guests and all the
media without explanation.

This reporter seriously doubts

if the anxious crowds can
be kept away much longer.

(dramatic music)

Salem, finally.

Where's Sabrina,
is she all right?

She's fine, but her magic's
a little out of whack.

She's gonna get me
out of here, isn't she?

Uh, sure.

Just keep telling yourself that.

[Hilary] Salem?

Hilary?

I figure, why
keep fighting it?

Is there anything I can do?

Hey, you cats,
get away from there!

Find Sabrina, tell her
five minutes, north gate,

I'll distract the guard.

HILARY: I think
I love you too!

What did she say?

Hello, Sabrina, Hilary.

I don't think we've ever really
been properly introduced.

Charmed, don't
mean to be rude,

but I'm kinda in the
middle of a crisis here.

Oh, right. Salem said
he'll distract the guard.

You should be able to get in
on the north end of the pool.

Well, great, let's go!

(crowd murmuring)

Tell the Governor that
we can't wait any longer.

‐ All right, if everybody's‐‐
‐ Listen!

I told you, this is a
matter of significant

scientific importance,
you can't go out there!

Well, I'd like to see
you try and stop me.

(crowd murmuring)

♪ My Bonnie lies
over the ocean ♪

♪ My Bonnies lies
over the sea ♪

Is this your idea of a joke?

Sabrina.

♪ So bring my Bonnie to me ♪

(crowd murmuring)

Wait here!

I'll be right back.

Where are you going?

You can't do this!

(dramatic music)

There's only one place they
can be heading, the dock.

Hold on!

Sabrina, look out!

ASSISTANT: There they are!

(suspenseful music)

(splashing)

‐ (Sabrina giggles)
‐ (Gwen cheers)

Better luck next time.

I was just gonna say
the same thing to you.

(suspenseful music)

We've gotta get
out to that boat.

Quickly, I think the
crowd's headed this way!

MAN: Hurry!

(Spout squeaks)

Spout!

My favorite taxi service.
Meet me out there.

(splashing)

(peaceful music)

Hey, how am I supposed
to meet you out there?

You just took the last dolphin!

Oh, right!

It's worth a shot.

I am kind of on a roll.

(twinkles)
(whooshing)

Yes!

Frizzle.

(splashing)

(suspenseful music)

Okay, Spout?

I need you to do
me one more favor.

(Spout squeaks)

You swam?

I was afraid I
wasn't getting enough

exercise this holiday.

(splashing)

Game's over, Sabrina.

You're very clever but nobody
makes a fool of me on my reef.

Julian?

I think we've got him.

This'll give those
roovs back the resort

‐ something to write about!
‐ You can't do this!

Fin!

Sabrina!

What's happening? Why
are you doing this?

No!

Over here!

Take me!

FIN: No!

Barnaby, go away,
get out of here!

See if we can get a
net around that one too!

‐ Sabrina, look!
‐ (Spout squeaks)

SABRINA: Spout,
did you find it?

It's your fish!

Ceridon Pelivius.

Incredible, it's beautiful.

Sabrina, be careful,
we don't wanna hurt it.

Quick, somebody get a bucket!

Actually, I was
thinking about stuffing it

and hanging it on my wall.

Now I'll have something
to show the press

back at the dock too.

Don't worry, your little
analogy isn't lost on me.

But this isn't the same thing.

‐ I'm trying to protect‐‐
‐ What?

Your ego? Your reputation?

Sabrina, nobody cares more
about this reef than I do.

SABRINA: I'm not
gonna let you do this.

‐ What are you doing?
‐ Hurry, Sabrina!

Fin, get ready to swim.

Sabrina!

Drop the knife.

No.

You think I'm gonna let
you destroy the greatest

discovery of this century?

Do you think I'm gonna
let you destroy their lives?

This reef doesn't belong
to you, it belongs to them.

By the way, how does it feel
to be on the other side?

(melancholic music)

Thank you.

I can just go after
them again, you know.

If you meant that, you
never would have let me

cut the rope.

Don't be so sure
of yourself, Sabrina.

(crowd murmuring)

(Sabrina chuckles)

And don't be so sure of me.

The only thing I'm sure of,
is that you would never let

anyone hurt any living
creature on this reef.

You've dedicated your
whole life to the ocean.

(buzzing helicopter blades)

And what have I
got to show for it?

(chuckles)
Everything.

Everything.

(crowd murmuring)

Can't ask for much more
than that now, can I?

Finally, some answers.

Dr. Martin, you clearly
told me you'd made a find

of monumental importance.

I know I have a
lot to answer for.

First let me say how
sorry I am that‐‐

You had to wait.

This is what he
wanted to show you.

The blue spot butterfly fish.

Pretty cool, huh?
Nobody's seen one for 50 years.

Yeah but Sabrina‐‐

You got us out here
for some four‐inch fish?

I thought you said
they had a mermaid.

Mermaid?

You must be from
one of the tabloids.

Don't you get it?

Something we thought was
gone forever is back!

It's incredible.

I have the coastguard
on their way here now.

Seems a bit like overkill,
but they could help us

‐ corden off the area.
‐ What? Why?

You can't do that!

Thanks to my new
friend here, I can.

The National Endangered
Species Act requires

that the entire eastern end
of the island be reclassified

as a preservation zone.

Entry into the area is
completely prohibited.

Except for scientific research.

But it's such a small fish!

This small fish has created
a great deal of excitement

among local environmentalists,
although not a merman

as some other less reliable
news sources may have

led you to believe, it is
still a discovery of, uh,

some importance.

For example, the Great Barrier
Reef marine park authority

has classified its habitat
as a preservation zone,

thus ensuring the blue
spot butterfly fish

will no longer face extinction.

Hilary, I know
we've only just met,

but I think you feel
the same way about me

as I do about you.

No, don't speak.

Hilary...

Will you marry me?

Oh, yes, Salem!

I'd love to.

(laughs)

Oh.

But of course, with
a face like this,

how could she possibly say no?

(chuckles)

‐ ♪ Could it be you ♪
‐ (door unlocks)

♪ Could you be the one ♪

♪ That makes me feel ♪

Hilary?

Hilary, what's the matter,
why are you leaving?

Is it something I said?

My breath?

HILARY: Salem, I'm sorry.

I was hoping I wouldn't have
to say goodbye like this.

Apparently you
weren't planning on

saying goodbye at all.

Salem, I haven't
been honest with you.

I'm already a woman.

Meowow!

Oh.

I know I should have told you.

This trip was to celebrate
the end of my sentence.

It expired today.

I don't have to
be a cat anymore.

I'm a witch again.

That's perfect!

I can come live with you and
in 87 years I'll be a man‐‐

Salem, this is goodbye.

I'm really more of a dog person.

But you said you loved me.

Oh, I know.

I must have been caught
up in the moment.

My therapist says I have
a real problem with that.

(melancholic music)

(Salem sobs)

Hey.

You okay?

I'll be all right.

He said he'd write
to me every day.

Or maybe it was
something about soccer.

I never could
understand that accent.

Come on, Dr. Martin's about
to make his announcement.

Since we have you all
here, we wanted to let you in

on another little discovery
that we made yesterday.

Thanks to the dedicated
efforts of one of our most

loyal guests, Mr. Saberhagen,

who unfortunately couldn't
with us this afternoon,

we have identified the ship
which has been contaminating

the reef and harming
the marine life.

The photo has been
forwarded to the authorities

and arrests have been made.

(applause)

(playful music)

You are just the
cutest little thing.

You sure you don't wanna come?

I'm sure.

I think you've already got the
two best guides on the reef.

(cheerful music)
