[birds chirping]

It's no good. I can't relax.

Close your eyes and float.

-I just keep thinking about tonight.
-Well, it's hours away.

Until the full moon rises,
why worry about it?

Okay. You're right.

I can't do it.

I keep seeing strange things happening.

The full moon is going to rise anyway.
There's nothing we can do about that.

So just think positive.

We're lucky Emma's family is away
for the weekend.

I guess.

Should we get Lewis
to help us seal the rooms and--?

Lewis has other interests these days.

[Rikki gasps]

Come on then, let's go.

-That's it. I'm finished for the day.
-So soon?

-I finish this time every day.
-Hey, I was thinking about tonight...

-What about tonight?
-How about you and me and Italian food?

Um... no.

-[scoffs] You, me and Greek food?
-Definitely not tonight.

My parents are away and I have homework.

-You, me and anything?
-I've got to get changed.

-Is it me?
-No. It's not you.


-[Rikki] So, what's with the Ash thing?
-There is no "Ash thing."

If there was, I would tell you.
There's no "Ash thing," trust me.

-Well, he asked you out.
-[Emma] Yeah, tonight.

And tonight's the night
we turn into werewolves,

-which is kind of out of the question.
-Why didn't you suggest another night?

It's not going to happen with Ash.

I'm a mermaid.
It kind of kills your social life.

Zane knows I'm a mermaid. It works for us.

You're not suggesting I tell him?
That's the craziest thing I've ever heard.

Cleo, tell her it's not gonna happen.

Well, I wouldn't do it lightly...

-Em, you like him.

I'm not telling him I'm a mermaid.

And neither are you two. Promise?

[both] Promise.

Now, let me get changed in peace.

Where are we going?

We're doing this because
you desperately need help.

With Emma?

[chuckles] I don't think so.

Yeah, you do.

You like her. She likes you.
But you can't even get her out on a date.

And that's pathetic.

Oh, alright, smart guys,
well, what do I do?

First of all, do not listen to her.

She has no idea what's good for her.


-I thought I was too pushy.
-You're not pushy enough.

What Cleo's saying is "be bold."
Is that simple enough?

Hey, guys? You ready?

Yep. Sure.

Well, I'm done. No moonlight
will be getting in here.

[Emma] Not even a pinprick?

I'm checking.
I don't want to turn into a pumpkin.

[Lewis] Hey, guys.

Am I on time? Do you need any help?

-We've just finished.
-Yep. We've got it down pat.

You don't need me?

Well, we've got DVDs,
popcorn and each other.

Yep! She says we don't need you.

-Okay, if you're absolutely sure.
-[Rikki] We're sure.

Besides, don't you have other things
to do these days?

Fine. Okay. Well, um... good luck and...


-Five minutes till moonrise. Where's Cleo?
-She's checking the blackout.

-Oh, well, I better go and get--
-She knows what time it is.

Don't be a stress head.

-Okay, is everything secure upstairs?
-Let's have one last check.

[knocks on door]

[Emma] It's not locked.
Come in before it's too late.

-Where is everyone?
-[Rikki] Up here.

Cleo? Hi, um...

Can you just hold that for a sec? Thanks.

So beautiful.

Thanks. I didn't know you'd be here;
otherwise I'd--

Everything okay?

Everything's fine.


-Where's Cleo? The moon's up.
-I don't know.

You're cutting it fine.

So, we've got DVDs, popcorn
and we are all set for a long night in.

Let's eat.



Why don't we go for a swim?


We must swim to Mako Island.


Oh, no!

Ash, what are you doing here?

-Dinner is served.
-[Emma] Dinner?

-But I...
-I thought I'd be bold.

Cleo, the moon has got you.

-We can swim. You'll love it.
-No, I won't. I won't love it.

Neither will you.


We completely sealed this place.
How did this happen?


I touched the moon.


-Ash, you've got to go.
-I just got here.

-Look, I can't. It's not right.
-If you want me to go, I'll go.

No! Don't touch that!

Uh... we can't open it.

-Just stay there and don't go anywhere.
-You don't want me to go, do you?

[chuckles] Come on.

It took me ages to cook all this.

Pasta, your favourite.
And there's dessert in the fridge.

It would be crazy to waste.

Sparkling mineral water, not flat,
I remembered.

Come on. A toast.

To surprises.

-We should be swimming.
-Yeah, yeah, enough with the swimming.

I like being a mermaid. Don't you?

Yeah, I do, although sometimes,
it does have its drawbacks.

Now, I'm gonna go tell Emma
all about this.

She'll be so excited. You don't move!


There's a hint of chili.
I didn't think you'd mind.

-I didn't even know you cooked.
-Only on special occasions.

And I think you're pretty special.

Um, Em? Ash?

-What are you doing here?

What are you doing here?

Oh, I get lonely when my parents go away.

You and me. We need to talk. Now.

So talk.

Upstairs. There's been a... development.

-You mean...?

Uh, Ash, you're going to have to leave.

No, wait.

-I'll go upstairs. And deal with this.
-This what?

This problem. You stay right there.

-Mako will be beautiful now.
-Sorry, Cleo, you're not going anywhere.

-She saw the moon. How did this happen?
-Don't look at me.

-Uh, it must have been Ash.

-What's he doing here?
-He said something about being "bold."


-I saw that.

-That look.
-What? We didn't have a look.

You knew about this!


What did you say?

We didn't say anything... much.


Come on, we didn't think he'd come here.

-On a full moon.
-Yeah, I know. It's kind of bad timing.

Bad timing? He brought me dinner.

-But how do I get rid of him?
-Maybe you shouldn't.

It's a mild version of moon fever.
I can handle Cleo.

-[Emma] You're sure?
-Sure I'm sure. She's a puppy.

-She's not gonna hurt anyone.
-The moon is silver.

I like silver. [chuckles]


What did I tell you? It's your big chance.

He's down there, waiting for you.

-We can't change anything now.

Cleo and I will just have to sit this out.

I will keep watch and you go back to Ash.

Okay? Go!

I want my tail.


Is everything okay?
If Cleo and Rikki need you, then...

Everything's fine.
Just a minor emergency. No dramas.

Looks delicious.

Cleo, you're not going anywhere.

Can you feel that?

-Mako is calling us.

We're happier when we're mermaids.

Yeah, we are. Let's talk about that.

Talking is good.

Much happier.



So Rikki and Cleo
are both staying upstairs?

Yes, watching TV.

-They come to your place to watch TV?

You need to get out more.

I get out. I'm always out.

I'm usually not home on a Saturday night.


Having fun, you know, doing fun things.

I have a feeling that you have secrets.

Which is cool,
you'll tell me when you're ready.


This water's for Emma.


You don't mind that there's things
I can't tell you?

I like secrets. Of course, it does make me
want to find out more about you.

-You're not exactly what I expected, Ash.
-What did you expect?


[both chuckle]

-What are you doing here?
-Come for a swim.

Oh, no, Rikki.

-We want you...
-To come with us.

To Mako!


-Why do they want to go to Mako?
-Uh, just ignore them.

It's a little late for a swim.

Why don't you guys
go back upstairs and relax?

-You can't hide yourself, Emma.
-Tell Ash who you really are.

Are they alright?

Fine. They're messing around.

-Tell him the truth.
-He'll understand.

-What are they talking about?
-Uh, nothing.

Why don't you get dessert from the fridge?

-Yes, now!

Guys, cool it.

I'll help Ash know the truth.

-Whoa! What happened?
-I knocked the ice bucket over.

-Right, that's enough!

Stay here.

-What? But--
-Just stay put. I'll be back in a minute.

Don't come upstairs.

You need to come over, now.

Oh, Lewis. Forget what we said.

[both chuckle]

Okay, we're sorry. We need you. Happy now?

Good. And hurry, it's an emergency.

[Rikki shrieks]

Rikki? Cleo? Listen to me...

You're one of us, Emma.

You have really gone and done it now.

You should have been more careful.

I'm going to do my best to help you,
but you need to cooperate.



[both chuckling]

[Ash] Emma?

Emma? Are you okay?

Rikki, what is going on up there?
I heard noises.

Emma wants you to come upstairs.

-What? She told me to wait here.
-She wants to show you something.

Cleo, try to pull yourself together.
This is dangerous.

-This is right.
-No. It's not right.

Try to think.

You're special.
Ash needs to know the real Emma.

Ash isn't gonna want to know me at all.

So where's Emma?

In there. She's waiting for you.

In the bathroom? Why? Is she sick?


-Emma? Are you in there?
-Yes, Ash.

Come in. I've got something to show you.

No more secrets.

-Are you sure?
-I'm sure.

Then you'll understand.

-You cannot go in there!

Okay. What is going on?

That is a very good question.

-You have to leave right now!
-Why? What's wrong?

As if you don't know. Stop.


-I saw what was going on with my own eyes.
-Nothing was going on.

What were you going to do
in the bathroom then? Clean the basin?

I was checking on Emma
to see if she was alright.

Let me worry about that. Huh.

Hey! Hang on a second.

What's it got to do with you?

You... what?

Well, I've known Emma for a long time.

I'm like a big brother to her
and this is what big brothers do.

So, yeah. Out.

-Thank you.
-[door closes]

Come for a swim with us, Lewis.

I'm glad to see you coped
just fine without me.

[both chuckling]

Does anyone remember
what happened last night?

Not me.

I remember Cleo being moonstruck,
but after that is blank.

You were both affected
and I followed you into the bathroom...

-Ash. Ash was here.
-He was?

He tried to put on
a romantic dinner and then...


I have no idea what happened then.

Um, about last night...

-Don't sweat it.
-No, I feel really bad.


I'm embarrassed.

I was a bit surprised to walk in on that.

I would never do anything
disrespectful to Emma.

I accept that.

-I just hope you can explain that to her.
-Ash, I don't think it's necessary.


-How about a juice? On the house?
-Sure. Uh, can I grab a Cranberry Booster?

Oh, did she really ask you
to send me home?

Not in so many words.

'Cause if Emma has something to tell me,
why doesn't she just tell me?


You okay?

I'm fine.

'Cause last night, I wasn't sure if...

-And Lewis dragged me home, so...
-It's okay.

Everything's okay.

[sighs] Good.

Strange night.

-Maybe I shouldn't have come.

You were right, it was strange.

[Ash] You don't have to explain.

No, I don't wanna forget
about the beautiful meal you cooked

or how charming you were,
and how understanding.

You tried really hard,
and I didn't exactly make it easy on you.

I was just really nervous

and kind of have this problem
with letting go.

Hey, if you don't feel
the same way about us...

-We could forget--

I wanna change that.

-You know how we talked about secrets?

I have something big I want to tell you.

I really like you.
