You are going to love this.

Okay, so, what's the big surprise?

Check it out.

Nice yacht.
Thinking of buying it or stealing it?

Neither. It was caught in a storm
off the coast a few weeks ago.


The people got off,
but they lost everything on board.

Including this.

-I think Emma's mum's got one of these.
-I doubt it.

This one's a genuine Tibetan antique.
Worth a fortune.

At the bottom of the ocean it's not.

Exactly. And there's a reward
for whoever can find it.

Why do I get the feeling this is a setup?

I'm not searching the ocean
for a garden ornament for your yard.

[stammers] Think about it.

This colour looks so good on you.

Looks way better on you.
You've got a deeper complexion.

Knock, knock!

Come right in.


-Hi, Cleo.

Well, I'm glad you two are here.

-Where's Rikki?
-Don't know. Why?

I wanted to tell you guys, you know,
even though things have changed,

you can still trust me.

Trust you? Even though
you're going out with Charlotte?

I'm not going out with Charlotte,
we're just, um...

We're, uh... I don't know, companions?


Whatever. It hasn't changed anything.

I'm here for you.
I'm the only one that knows your secret.

That's not true.
Zane knows we're mermaids.

But he's exactly the type you can't trust.

He's whatever the complete opposite is
to trustworthy.

Lewis, you took Charlotte
out to Mako Island.

I thought we could rely on you.

We all did.

-You can! Come on, I'm your backup guy.
-[doorbell rings]

The one you turn to in your hour of need.

It's me, Lewis. Same as ever.

You've got to believe me.

[Charlotte] Morning, Em.

Lewis! We're meant to be going
to the beach today, remember?

[Lewis] How did you know I was here?

[Charlotte] Your mum told me.

-She tells me everything.

Hi, Cleo.

Yeah. Hi.

Lewis? Come on.

Well, I will have my phone with me.
Call me if you need me.

Alright, we will.

[Cleo sighs]

Don't tell me. More bills?

Maybe we should skip town.

[sighs] Yeah, maybe we should.

Dad, is everything okay?

I'll be honest with you, Rikki.
We're struggling. [exhales]

Can't even make the rent on this joint.

We might have to start looking around.

You mean we have to move?

Somewhere cheaper. Maybe up the country.

I know you like this town.
You've made friends.

But I'm sorry, sweetheart.

It's okay.
I'm over the surf and sand thing, anyway.

Yeah, I'm sure you are.


Don't worry, Dad. Things will work out.


-[gull screeching]
-[water splashing]

So, tell me about this reward.

I thought you'd come round.

The owners of the yacht
are friends of my dad's.

They're offering $10,000 to anyone
who can bring it back in one piece.

And you think we can?

Do I think a mermaid can find
something at the bottom of the ocean?

So the yacht went missing
somewhere near Mako.

If we search the area grid by grid,
we're bound to find it.

-So, what's really in it for you?
-The glory.

I'm a hero. You know that.

Help me out
and I'll split it with you, 50-50.


Okay, 60-40.

-It's a big area.
-[clicks tongue] There's another problem.

They're announcing the reward
this afternoon,

so by tomorrow, that whole area
will be swarming with divers.

So, we've only got today?

-It can't be done.
-Not by one mermaid.

-They'll never go.
-Don't underestimate yourself.

You can be very convincing.

[Rikki] It's a very rare,
one-of-kind Tibetan statue.

It's beautiful.

-And it's been lost off the coast.
-That's terrible.

Yeah. Zane knows the general area
which it was lost in,

but he's gonna leave it there.


Friends of his dad's lost it overboard.

And it's just gonna stay there,
at the bottom of the ocean?

[clicks tongue] Yep.

But it should be in a museum or something.

That's what I said.
But Zane thinks it's lost forever.

A hundred scuba divers
could never find it.

Maybe we could look for it.

It's a very big search area.

Bottom of the ocean. Mermaids. Come on.

It could work. With the three of us. Em?

Cleo, we should think this through.

-What's the problem?
-The problem is Zane's involved.

Hey, great plan, by the way.
I had no idea you were such a good liar.

I didn't lie. I just didn't mention
the money, that's all.

I know, but what harm can there be?

We find the statue, it goes to a museum,
we've done a good thing.

I know, but Zane and "done a good thing,"
that doesn't go together.

And I'm pretty sure Lewis wouldn't think
it was a good idea.

In case you haven't noticed,
Lewis isn't here.

-I'll split it with them when we find it.
-You won't object if I don't do the same?

Here they come.

Count us in.

So, you'll each search the area
grid by grid.

The statue will be in a packing case
like this.

So, how are we gonna get it
to the surface?

When you find it,
you'll attach this flotation device.

[Emma] Simple as that?

Hey, you're the ones who want to do this.

If you've got a better plan,
I'm happy to listen.

He's done all the calculations.

Lewis isn't the only one
who knows something about physics.

That's true.

Okay, let's go get ourselves
some treasure.

Come on. Let's go for a swim.

Um... Sure.

-What's wrong?
-Nothing. Nothing.

It's just that Cleo didn't use to swim,
so I wasn't expecting to go in.

I know, it's silly.

She doesn't like swimming?

Oh, no, she loves swimming.
Just a different sort.

A different sort of swimming?

Yeah. Well, she-- She doesn't like surf.
She doesn't like waves.

Doesn't mean we can't, though, right?

Of course not.

-Hey! You're it!
-[Charlotte screams]

[Lewis] Hey!

-[Charlotte screams]
-[Lewis laughs]

There's no sign of any boat.
Are you sure this is the right area?

I'm certain. Okay, what do you reckon
about this grid next?

-You seem very keen to find this thing.
-Why wouldn't I be? It's a worthy cause.

Got a feeling this next grid could be it.

We need to find out more about this.
I say we call Lewis.

What for?

He might at least know
if this statue actually exists.

-Fine, but I'm not calling him.
-I'll do it.

Do you have your phone?
I didn't bring mine.

-Still got him on speed dial?
-[keypad beeping]

[phone ringing]

[scoffs] Cleo?

Sorry, he's busy.

[phone beeps]

-[phone beeps]
-He switched me off!

So much for "call me if you need me."

You guys ready for the next dive?

-Still nothing?
-No. Give me the next grid.

-You really want this, don't you?
-Don't you?

"Financial reward"
is one of my favourite phrases.

[Emma] Reward?

There's a reward?


So it looks like you'll have to force
yourselves to accept money.

[Emma] I knew we couldn't trust you.

-We're out of here, right?

Come on, Rikki.

Um... I'm gonna keep looking.

-Why? He conned you.
-No, he didn't.

I knew about it all along.

So, you lied to us?

-[Emma] Why?
-It's a lot of money.

Come on, we're here already.
We might as well just keep looking.

I don't think so, Rikki.

I can't do it on my own.

Well, you're gonna have to.

Come on, let's keep looking.

[birds chirping]

[Emma pants]

Zane tricked us.
This was all about making money.

That's what I don't get.
Zane's dad's loaded.

Why would he be after the reward?

Who knows what makes him tick
or what Rikki sees in him?

That's why I've got a really bad feeling
about leaving her there.

It was Rikki's choice.

Every time she's around him,
she loses it big-time.

-Look, Cleo.

If she wants to help him find that thing,
then let her do it.

-So long as we're not involved.
-I suppose.

Besides, she talked us into it.
It's not like she was looking out for us.

Otherwise, she would have been
honest up front.

I'm going.

[gull screeching]

Zane must be pressuring her somehow.

Cleo, don't make excuses for her.
She used us.

How's it going?

Fine now.

What happened?

You'd know if you kept your phone on
like you said you would.

-It is on. It's always on.
-[bag unzipping]

Okay, it's not on.

I don't know how it could switch
itself off, I'm really sorry.

-Why'd you call?
-It's not important.

Guys, come on,
if something's wrong, I want to help.

Okay, so once you're down there,
you'll attach these ropes to the crate.

Once the balloon starts to rise,
I'll help you haul it up from here.

No problem.

-You sure you can do this by yourself?
-I'm fine.

You look exhausted.
We can call it quits and come back.

Oh, that'll make an interesting haul
for some salvage crew,

a gold statue and a mermaid.

We could get here first
before anyone else.

I said I'm fine.

I've put too much work
into finding this thing,

now you're saying I should walk away?

All I'm saying is just... just be careful.

I know exactly where it is.
One more dive and I've got it.

Then I'll sleep for a week, I promise.

I can't let it go when I'm this close.

-I did warn you not to trust Zane.
-We didn't trust him, we trusted Rikki.

[sighs] And you didn't think
there was anything suspicious at all?

After a while.

That's why we called you.

Ugh, I should have been more careful.
I don't know how this happened.

-[Charlotte] There you are.
-Hey, hey.

I just needed to find out
what the guys have been up to.

And what have they been up to?

Not as much as you and Lewis,
that's for sure.

The beach sounded great.

Yeah. It was so much fun.

We had the best time bodysurfing.

Cleo, Lewis tells me
that you're scared of the water.

Well, you want to be careful.
You never know what's in the water.

You wouldn't want something
pulling you under.

She means rips or currents.
Who wants a juice?





Rikki, look at me!


[phone ringing]



I've got her out of water.
She's breathing, but she's not moving.

I need you guys to get here now!

It's Rikki, she's been hurt!

-Where are you going?
-With them. They need me.

What about me? We're meant to be together
and you're chasing after them.

-Is that why you turned my phone off?
-We were having a great time.

-I didn't want them interrupting.
-It was important.

They survived.

-I told you, they need me.

[Emma] Come on, Rikki.

Rikki, please.

-Emma, do something!
-[Lewis] Zane!

-[Emma] Rikki, come on.
-[Cleo] Wake up!

-She's not moving!

-Cover her with this.
-Wake up!

We need to warm her up.
Keep her head to one side.

-[Zane] Okay.
-[Cleo] Come on.

-[Cleo] Come on, Rikki.
-What's that?

These are smelling salts.
Back up. They really stink.

-Come on!
-[Lewis] Rikki, wake up.

-[Emma] Wake up. Wake up.
-It's not doing anything!

-[Emma] Please.
-Rikki, please.

-[Cleo] Please.
-[Lewis] Come on.

-[Emma] Rikki!
-[Cleo] Please!

Come on.

[gasps, coughs]


Lewis, you... you've really got to do
something about your breath.


[Lewis sighs]

[dog barking]

I saw the crate coming down...

and that was it,
until I opened my eyes and saw you guys.

-[scoffs] You really had me worried there.
-Serves you right.

If you hadn't pressured her,
none of this would have happened.

He didn't.

-Rikki, don't cover for him.
-I'm not.

I was the one doing all the pressuring.

He told me to forget about it,
but I wouldn't.

And when I got hurt, he saved me.

And the lying to us?

I knew you'd believe the story
if it came from me.

-[Emma] Why?
-I told you, the money.

I need it for my dad.

He can't cover the bills or the rent.
And we might have to move away.

From us?

He's thinking of leaving for good.

Why didn't you tell me?
I can handle any bills you've got.

That's why I didn't tell you.

We don't take charity.

And, yeah, I know you guys are all
gonna want to help, and I appreciate that,

but we can't take any money.

Dad and I will sort this out.

I'm really sorry I lied to you.

It's okay.

Thanks, Lewis. You were great today.

Yeah. Thanks.


[clicks tongue] I looked at your plan
for raising the crate.

-Pretty good.
-Except that it didn't work.

Hm. I've got a few ideas
if you're interested.

-Your beverage.
-Thank you.

-You look much better today, Rikki.
-Yeah, I feel better.

This is almost ready. Where's Lewis?

He's probably too busy.

[Lewis] Hey, guys!

Here he is now.

-Did you get it?

[Rikki] You're late.

I said 3:30.

Sorry. I got caught up.

Let me guess. Charlotte?

She can wait.
I wouldn't miss this for the world.

[Zane] Uh... Rikki?

This is for you.

What is it?

Uh, it's a bill
for the petrol for yesterday.

-Very funny.
-[Lewis] It's a cheque for the reward.

[Zane] Lewis and I salvaged the crate.

The two of us in scuba gear,
plus an all-new flotation device.

It wasn't-- It wasn't too difficult.


I told you, I don't take charity.

It's not charity.
You did all the hard work.

Yeah. You found the crate.

And there is such a thing as danger money.

Rikki, take it. You deserve it.

[paper rustling]

My dad is gonna freak.
Thank you, guys. Thanks so much!


[all laughing]

Well, come on.
Let's get this barbecue happening.


[Rikki] That looks good.

-Well, I'm a vegetarian.
-[all laughing]

[Lewis] Joking.
