[engine whirring]

[Nate] Whoo-hoo! [laughs]

[Lewis] What are you doing?
I'm trying to fish!

Sorry. Did I scare all the fish away?

[laughs sarcastically] Only a moron
would think that's funny, Nate.

Oh, yeah? What does that make me?

Work it out.

[Nate screams]

[Jet Ski whirring]

[Jet Ski crashes]



Oh. [laughs]

-Oh, that's not good.
-You broke my Jet Ski.

Whatever.

You are so lucky
that my fishing rod's okay.

It's... it's very expensive
and it's top of the line,

unlike your clapped-out lawnmower
that you ride-- used to ride.

Are you stupid or something?

-You're gonna pay for this.
-Nate, I didn't touch your Jet Ski.

My fishing lure.

Yes! See you, Nate.

You haven't heard the last of this.

She's not coming. I'm out of here.

Just wait. Give her a minute.

And when she gets here,
try and be friendly.

Friendly? I'm always friendly.

Mostly.

Charlotte, hi. You made it.

Just. We were about to leave.

Sorry. I got chased by a dolphin.

A dolphin?

Dolphins don't chase people.

Well, this one did. It was harassing me.

They have sharp teeth
and it was leering at me.

Charlotte, dolphins aren't aggressive
to mermaids.

They're our friends.

He was probably smiling at you.

[scoffs]
No, he was getting ready to bite me.

I'm not stupid.

Look, Charlotte, you're new to this
and we're here to help,

so if you have any questions
about being a mermaid,

feel free to ask.

Any questions?

[scoffs]

No. Everything's fine. It's under control.

-We could give you lessons.
-You do have a lot to learn.

Hey, let's not forget,

I'm the one with all three powers.
I can do everything you guys can do.

All this is new to Charlotte.
You guys had a year to get used to it.

-Maybe we should just give her a break.
-Whatever. I'll see you guys later.

Charlotte, please.

They mean well. Just give them a chance.

I have, and all they do is boss me around.

-They're trying to help you.
-I don't need their help.

I'm cool with being a mermaid
and I'm not afraid of dolphins.

Well, maybe I am.
A little bit, but don't tell them that.

I won't.

What does it matter, anyway?

Look, I know it's hard.
There is so much to get used to.

But I'm here to help.

Yeah, how?

[audience cheering]

[dolphin squeaking]

[audience cheering]

Wait until you meet Ronnie,
the friendliest dolphin in the world.

He'll be out the back somewhere.
He's gonna love you, I guarantee it.

How do I know he won't bite me?

Oh, come on,
that's just the nerves talking. It's okay.

Although, maybe we should get someone
who knows Ronnie to introduce you.

Like who?

Like Cleo.

She works here,
and Ronnie and her go way back.

And she will have started
her shift by now.

I'll go and find her.

-No, Lewis, wait!
-Charlotte, I'll be right back.

Ronnie?

Here, boy.

I'm not scared of you.
You're just a big fish.

[Ronnie whistles]

Cleo!

Lewis, what are you doing here?

I'm here to help Charlotte
get over her fear of dolphins.

Not that she's afraid or anything.

Of course not.

So, what's she doing, watching the show?

No. I brought her here to meet Ronnie.

Lewis, Ronnie can be very playful.

He can?

What are you looking at?

Good dolphin.

Uh...

Now what?

You want this?

[thuds]

[Ronnie squeaking]

[gasps]

-[Ronnie squeaks]
-Oh!

Get away from me!

Help me, somebody!

[screams]

Help!

-[Charlotte screams]
-That's Charlotte!

Come on!

Charlotte! Stop it!

What were you doing?

[scoffs] What was I doing?

-Ask your stupid fish what he was doing!
-He's terrified.

[Charlotte] You're worried about him?
He attacked me!

Ronnie is just playful.

He jumped out of the water
and tried to hit me with his tail.

-That means he likes you.
-No, he hates me.

Look, this is all my fault.
I shouldn't have suggested it.

-It was a bad idea.
-Yeah, it was.

[Cleo] Charlotte.

You've got to start being more careful
around water.

Anyone could have seen you.

Now, there are a few rules
you've got to remember--

Please! Just stop telling me
what to do, okay?

[Nate] Here, deadhead! This is for you.

It's a quote: $750 to fix my Jet Ski.

I can read.

-Pay up or I'll sue you.
-I'll countersue.

Are you looking for trouble?

I'm a peace-loving citizen, Nate.

You've got till five o'clock.
Then I'm coming looking for you.

Charlotte, can I talk to you for a sec?

We've all agreed and it's important
you learn how to control your powers.

I already have.

It's not that hard.

It might feel that way,
but we need to be careful.

Only use your powers
when you absolutely have to,

and preferably in private.

Yep! That's pretty obvious, Emma.

Charlotte,
you might think you know everything,

but it took me weeks of practice.

Doesn't mean it's gonna take me that long.

Can we make it quick?
I'm meant to be meeting Lewis in 15.

Remember, small movements. Okay, you try.

[sighs]

Well done, Charlotte. That's good.

See, you can do anything
if you stay focused.

You're gonna come along just fine.

Whoops.

Well, no need to put them
in the cool room now.

[giggles]

-Have you seen Em?
-She's back there, stressing as usual.

Someone needs to follow her.

My shift doesn't end for ten minutes.

Em, I don't know if you've realised,
but I do have a life.

[sighs] Fine.

Why are you following me?

I'm just heading in the same direction.

Trust me, I'm not the following type.

Well, trust me, I don't need a babysitter,
so stop following me.

Okay, well, how about I stop following you
when you stop doing stupid things?

Bye, Rikki.

[Lewis] There is a misunderstanding.

-They are trying to do the right thing.
-Lewis, stop defending them.

They don't trust me.

Look, Charlotte, the girls,
they have spent so much time together.

They need to get used to the idea...
of a fourth mermaid.

They pretend that they want me around,
but they don't.

-It's all an act.
-Oh, come on.

No, you don't understand, Lewis.

They think
that I don't know what I'm doing.

But they're wrong. I'm better than them,
and they're just scared.

Why would they be scared?

Because they became mermaids by accident.

This was meant to happen to me.

I'm the only real mermaid.

Been fishing again, Lewis?

Keen observation there, Nate.

Look, I'm a bit busy now, so, uh...

You're acting pretty casual for someone
who's about to become fish bait.

I'm a black belt, remember?

Yeah, but isn't martial arts
all about learning self-control?

Guess not.

Pay up or that's what I'm gonna do
to your head.

-What's going on?
-Nothing. It's okay.

Five o'clock. Don't forget.

[sighs]

What was that about?

He thinks I smashed his Jet Ski and
he wants me to pay him by five o'clock,

or he's going to kill me.

Nothing serious.

You should have stood up to him.

I'm a pacifist.

Especially when it comes to Neanderthals.

Oh, then you have to call the police.

Call the--? No, I don't.

Nate's like a blowfly.

Once he cools down,
he'll stop buzzing around my face.

He seemed pretty serious to me.

Don't worry, okay?

It's okay. Let's-- Come on. [scoffs]

Ash, hey. Um...

I'll grab two Mango Magics, please.

-Cool.
-Thanks.

It's time, Lewis.

Are you gonna pay me
the money you owe me or not?

Not in this lifetime.

Lewis... get up.

Or I will make you get up.

Nate, why don't you stop being such a--?

[woman screams]

Too easy.

Get the picture now, Lewis?

-Get away from him!
-Not until I get my money.

[Ash] Okay, Nate. Out. Now!

Come on.

Hey, Lewis, you won't pay up?
I'll take your boat.

Bye-bye.

-Lewis, you okay?
-[hoarsely] Yeah. Fine.

-You sure you're okay?
-I feel fine.

Maybe you should see a doctor.

Guys, I'm all right.

I've never seen Nate like that before.
What's going on?

There was a little fishing accident.

-Um, it's nothing.
-That's not nothing.

He hurt you.

-Someone needs to teach him a lesson.
-[Rikki] Charlotte, stay calm.

-You saw what--
-Charlotte, relax, okay?

What do you think you're doing?
That's Lewis's boat.

It's my boat now.
Lewis owes me and I'm collecting.

-You're going to regret hurting Lewis.
-Oh! You've got me so scared. I'm shaking.

-Nate, get out of the boat.
-Nice talking to you.

[engine whirring]

[engine not starting]

Stupid piece of junk.

-[thuds]
-Whoa.

Ah!

Hey, hey!

Somebody, help me! Please!

Are you sure we can't get you anything?

No. Really, I'm fine.
Although, I could do with a neck rub.

-He's fine.
-Eh.

Where's Charlotte?

[Nate] Help!

Help, please! Ah!

[Nate shouting]

Somebody! Some-- [screams]

-Charlotte.
-Charlotte.

[Nate groans]

-[Ash] Bizarre.
-Come on. Let's go.

[Nate] Somebody!

[Nate screaming]

[groans]

Help me! Somebody, help me!

Help! Please!

Hey! Help me!

[sighs]

-Feeling better, Natey?
-No!

What happened out there?

My guess would be a sudden release
of natural gas.

Gas release?

Yeah. Certain types of algae release gas.

It can build up under sand
until it bursts free.

There's been a few documented cases.

Off a jetty?

What can I say?
The ocean is full of mystery.

-Why? What do you think happened?
-I don't know.

Just forget it.
You can have your stupid boat back.

There's something wrong with it.

Do you believe all this stuff
about gas release?

I suppose. Why not?

Just seems weird.
Don't you think?

Using her powers right there,
in front of everyone!

-She's seriously out of control.
-Everyone's talking about it.

-I didn't know what to say.
-You don't have to say anything.

All people saw was a boat
that rocked around a bit, that's it.

That's it? Lewis, people are looking
for an explanation.

Yeah, but... guys, no one
is gonna jump to the conclusion

that a gang of mermaids with magical
powers were responsible for it.

Are they?

Doesn't change the fact
that she went too far.

What about next time, Lewis?

What if she lets loose
on someone else?

-She won't.
-How do you know that?

Lewis, you've been a great help to us.

We wouldn't have been able to keep
our mermaid secret without you.

But if we're not careful,
Charlotte's going to ruin that.

She's right, Lewis.
You have to do something. Please.

She's your girlfriend. Fix it.

All I'm saying is that
you have to consider the others.

You put them in danger today, Charlotte.

[Charlotte] But no one saw us
using our powers.

No, but that's beside the point.

You put everyone at risk,
including yourself.

-Nate got what he deserved.
-Yeah, but Emma, Rikki and Cleo don't--

No, Emma, Rikki and Cleo
don't care about your boat or you, Lewis.

They're only worried about themselves,
how everything is going to affect them.

I did this for you.

Because I care about you.
I don't care what they think anymore.

I don't need them.

From now on, I'm gonna do things my way.
