Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 1, Episode 15 - Sirena's Secret - full transcript

Rita continues to train the girls (this time, how to squeeze lemons from a distance using their fingers). David is holding auditions for a singer to join him in performing at the Ocean Café. Zac gives Evie a glass figurine of two dolphins for their eight month anniversary. Lyla and Nixie see how Sirena and David interact with each other and become concerned that if she gets the singing position, they'll fall further in love and Sirena will leave the pod forever (just like Rita did). Sirena tries out and sounds terrific but Lyla and Nixie interfere using the technique Rita showed them to strain Sirena's vocal chords. Her voice goes so high, it smashes Evie's figurine. Zac witnesses them do it and practices the technique on Cam. When Carly tries out, Zac uses it to make her sound fabulous so David hires her. Evie fills Zac in on David's real reason to audition singers: so he could be with Sirena. The girls see each other's sides and make up. Zac regrets what he did and does not assist Carly's singing during the debut performance. Sirena gets to sing with David, after all.

DAVID:

Come on, people.

If you can sing,

then come and try out

for our live-music nights

at the Ocean Café.

That's right,

live music starting tonight,

and I need a singer.

Auditions today

only at 1:00.

Hey, mate,

this could be your big break.

Jess will sign you up.

Don't be shy.

Sign up or miss out.

I need a singer, and it could

easily be any one of you.

Sirena.

Oh, David, hi.

I didn't see you there.

It really could be you.

You have to try out.

I could be what?

My singer.

Business has been slow

so I figured

music might

bring people in.

I play guitar but I need someone

to accompany me.

That's a good idea.

So you'll do it?

You'll audition?

Me?

Sing?

I couldn't do that.

Why not?

You've got

an amazing voice.

I don't think so.

Come on,

please try out.

For me?

Okay.

LYLA:

Why are you giving us lemons?

NIXIE:

Is it because

mermaid school's over

and we're squeezing them over

fresh oysters to eat instead?

Just put them in front of you

and watch what I do.

I like that.

NIXIE:

I'm sorry,

what could this

possibly help us with

other than maybe

squashing a jellyfish

or squeezing open a clam?

I don't see the point.

Unless an underwater cave

collapsed on you

or you came face-to-face

with a killer whale,

then you might find it

extremely useful.

Okay, Lyla,

you're first.

Hold the fingers of your right

hand like this:

Don't tense.

Firm but relaxed.

Keep the lemon

in the center of your vision.

Great.

Okay. Nixie,

your turn.

If this is so important,

why is Sirena not here?

She has been missing

a few classes lately.

She'll be at the café.

Yeah. Hanging out with that land

boy who works there.

David?

She's been doing that

a lot lately.

Sirena. Glad you could join us.

Hi, Rita.

Is it okay if I catch up on this

later? I'm kind of busy.

Thanks. Bye.

[CHANTING IN FLUCTUATING KEYS]

What you doing?

Practicing

for my audition.

Your what?

It's a tryout.

The Ocean Café's having

a live-music night

and David needs a singer.

You can't be serious.

Well,

why not?

David said

I have an amazing voice.

So this

is all about David.

Yes,

we have been noticing

how much time you've

been spending with him.

I am not.

I used to sing all the time

with Aquata.

I miss it, that's all.

Then sing out on the reef.

Why do you have to go

in the café?

LYLA:

Yeah.

Yeah, there's a lot of ways

to get splashed there.

Well, it's never been

a problem before

and we go there

practically every day.

You mean you do.

Just remember

we're here to fix Zac

and get the pod back,

not to get all mixed up

with land boys.

Who knows how long we're gonna

be stuck here? It could be ages.

And we've gotta fit in.

You've always said that.

You know we don't need

to fit in that much.

We need to stick together

and concentrate

on what we came onto land for

in the first place.

I'm sorry, but this is something

I really want to do.

I have a really

bad feeling about this.

Yeah. Yeah,

me too.

Hey, Evie.

Mwah.

It's weird.

I woke up and I wanted

to kiss you today.

Is today the 17th?

It must be,

because I got you this.

Happy anniversary.

The best

eight months of my life.

It's beautiful.

I love it.

I'd better

get back to work.

How can eight months

be an anniversary?

If you'd ever had a girlfriend

for longer than eight minutes

you wouldn't need to ask.

Am I too early?

I didn't wanna be late.

No,

you're right on time.

I'm so nervous.

Hey,

don't worry,

I know you're gonna sound

fantastic.

Maybe he won't pick her.

No human can sing better

than a mermaid.

Okay, let's go.

I wish I could

just give you the job.

You're the person

I really wanna sing with.

You mean that?

So let's go

make it happen.

Okay.

Did you see

how he looked at her?

Did you see

how she looked at him?

This isn't about singing.

She's fallen for a land boy.

Just like Rita.

Yeah, and you know

how that turned out.

She had to leave

the pod forever.

Maybe it doesn't have to be

that serious.

Maybe it's just a phase

she'll get over.

Not if she's performing with him

every night.

We can't let her sing with him,

ever.

Can I just start again?

No, no, that's fine. We're quite

happy with what we've heard.

Yeah. Thanks, Hannah.

We'll be in touch.

And next up is Sirena.

SIRENA:

Okay,

we have to do something.

What's that thing

Rita was showing us?

Thought you said

it was pointless.

Well, maybe in the ocean,

but up here it has its uses.

Sirena's vocal cords,

for example.

Are you kidding?

What, do you have

a better idea to stop her?

Like this. If you'd listened

you'd know how.

NIXIE:

Okay.

Bend your fingers less.

You're gonna choke her.

Okay, I get it.

[HIGH-PITCHED SHRIEKING]

I'm so sorry.

Sirena.

Sirena?

You think that was

a real laugh, huh?

Laugh? About what?

I saw it all.

Sirena sings while you do the

little trick with your fingers.

We don't know what

you're talking about.

Come on.

Her voice went so high

it smashed

Evie's figurine to pieces.

That was nothing

to do with us.

It just--

It does that sometimes.

It was her

anniversary present.

I just gave it to her

this morning.

I wanna know what you're gonna

do about replacing it.

You're kidding.

It's not our fault,

okay? Sorry.

Here.

Sip it slowly.

It's seaweed

from the Galapagos Islands

and soft coral

from the waters around Fiji.

You'll have your voice back

in no time.

Do you feel like telling me

how this happened?

[CRIES]

CAM:

Why did the mermaids break it?

Because they were showing off

their powers

and couldn't care what happened.

Speaking of powers,

do you know any tricks that

might help you fix this thing?

Considering art isn't really

your strong suit.

Thanks a lot.

But their tricks wrecked

David's auditions.

What's the point?

Especially as Sirena's

still got the gig.

Are they gonna

wreck that too?

Or maybe

she doesn't have it.

Sing something.

I don't want the gig.

Well, other people do.

If they wanna cause trouble,

two can play at that game.

Sing something.

Is this gonna hurt?

I'll take it slow.

Sing something.

Your favorite song.

Anything.

Um, ahem.

Yeah, sure.

I didn't know you could sing,

Carly.

I've heard about this.

People just suddenly

develop something.

Yeah, like asthma.

I've never heard of anyone

suddenly

being able to sing.

I wasn't that bad

to start with.

No, I--

I didn't mean it like that.

I just didn't realize

how good you were.

I think you just found

your singer, dude.

This could be so big for me.

Please, David.

I'll still wait your tables,

at least for a little while.

Sure. Congrats, Carly.

Yes!

You've got the gig.

You start tonight.

Sirena?

Sirena?

Are you all right?

LYLA:

We can explain.

We're your friends.

We didn't want you

to make a terrible mistake.

Friends?

You think this

is what friends do?

You embarrassed me

in front of all of those people.

We didn't wanna do that.

You just weren't listening

to us about David.

Being with him

would wreck your life.

You just did that.

Sirena, Rita left the pod

for a land boy.

She could never come back.

Do you never

wanna see Aquata again?

I don't wanna be a part of a pod

that treats me like this.

I would rather have legs

forever.

You can't mean that.

SIRENA:

I can't feel any worse

than I already do.

I thought

I had real friends.

Obviously not.

Sirena.

So much for trying

to keep her close.

I'd say you just pushed her

further away.

♪ I stand still

You come around ♪

♪ Call on me ♪

♪ I break the rules

♪ Flow so free ♪

You fixed it for me.

It's still

two dolphins swimming,

but it's kind

of abstract.

I love it.

I'm so glad

we're back together.

We really are lucky

to have each other.

Yeah, same.

Not like

poor David and Sirena.

What do you mean?

What do you think was the real

reason for this music night?

To make money?

[LAUGHS]

How can you be so sensitive

about some things

and so totally unaware

of others?

[LAUGHS]

It was so

he could be with her.

But now

she won't sing,

or probably ever

go to the café again.

He's gutted.

Wish I'd known.

What could you have done?

Even if Sirena changed her mind,

it's too late.

Carly's singing.

You know, I never thought

her voice was that great,

but who knew?

Yeah, who knew?

Sirena,

we're sorry.

We mean it.

LYLA:

What we did was terrible.

Sirena?

Look, we wanna

make it up to you, okay?

Just, do you think you can

forgive us?

Of course

I forgive you.

You were right.

What was I thinking,

wanting to be

with a land boy?

I don't belong

in his world.

I never have

and I never will.

I was just lucky

you guys were there to save me.

So we're all set.

For what?

A great night of music.

I've got a table just there.

Carly's pumped. She's gonna

blow their socks off.

Doesn't look like

David will.

CAM:

So he wanted Sirena.

Carly's gonna be even better,

thanks to you.

I don't know if this is such

a good idea anymore.

I thought you wanted

to get the mermaids back.

Things are a lot

more complicated now.

CAM:

Carly's on the precipice

of stardom,

and you're pulling the rug out

from underneath her?

Cam, she can't

actually sing.

She thinks she can,

and if she gets up there

without you,

she'll be

scarred for life.

LYLA:

If you like David,

you shouldn't let him go.

Forget that you're from

different worlds.

Rita found a way

to make that work.

She had to leave the pod.

But they

didn't understand.

We do.

It doesn't matter.

I don't like him that much.

Oh, yes, you do.

We can tell.

It's not serious.

I'll get over it.

No, you won't.

Sirena,

you guys are mad

for each other.

It's obvious.

That's the main reason

why I tried to stop you.

I was scared.

Not that you would

leave the pod,

that you would

leave me.

There,

I said it.

What, you're like a sister

to me. I don't wanna lose you.

LYLA:

You think she's not like

a sister to me too?

Oh, my goodness,

are we talking to you?

What about--?

Would you two stop fighting?

This is about me.

I was never gonna leave you guys

for David.

You're like sisters to me too.

And what you feel for him's

pretty special though, right?

Then we'd better hurry if you're

gonna get to the café in time.

I can't go back

after what I put him through.

Please, I'm sure

he'll forgive you.

I let him down,

I ran out on him.

I don't think he will.

DAVID:

Welcome, everyone,

to our first live-music night

at the Ocean Café.

Joining me for her debut

performance will be

our friend Carly.

[SPECTATORS MURMURING]

What happened?

She sounded

so good earlier.

DAVID:

Carly.

I'm terrible, okay?

I don't know why I thought

I was good enough to do this.

I must have just

fluked my audition.

Well, maybe it's because

we should've practiced more.

And maybe

you should have played with

the person who can really sing.

And the person who you really

wanted to all along.

I may be tone-deaf,

but I'm not blind as well.

Thank you,

Carly.

Sirena,

can I have a word?

I hope you've changed your mind

about singing with me,

because I can't think of any

other way to convince you

other than to tell you that...

I really, really like you,

Sirena, and--

And, well, yeah,

now you know.

I really,

really like you too.

Of course

I'll sing with you.
