There's a big storm coming.

You guys better go home.

LYLA: We only just got here.

Yeah, it's gonna rain, all day

by the look of those clouds.

I need to get to school

for a Saturday staff meeting

and you guys need to get to Mako

where you'll be safe.

We'll make sure

we don't get wet.

You think that's easy?

I've had years of practice.

I know how to run my life

around rain, you don't.

If you leave now, I reckon

you've got 20 minutes

before you get caught.






You haven't even started.

Started what?


I told you I wanted to get away

as soon as we can.

I have, I was just thinking

about what to take.

We do the father-son

camping trip

every year.

What's to think about?

There's always last minute stuff

I forget to take.

Make sure it's not

your wet weather gear.

What? Why?

I checked the forecast, there's

a storm later this morning.

You're joking.

So we get a bit wet,

what's the big deal?

But a storm means lightning.

We could get hit.

There's nothing on our tent

that conducts electricity, Zac.

But it'll be muddy

everywhere and--

And it'll still be great.

Now, I want to get going

as soon as we can,

so hurry up

with your packing.

Cam, I need your help.

It's not even raining yet.

We can still get to Zac,

zap him and swim to Mako

before it starts.

Well, actually,

according to our new Aunt Rita,

we'll be stuck outside

like beached whales

with our tails out

for everyone to see.

We do not look like whales.

If you stopped arguing with me

and got on with it,

there wouldn't be a problem.

You're not always right, Lyla.

Neither are you.

You are like a barnacle on

a rock, you just never let go.

It is going to rain.

We have to come back.

Zac isn't going anywhere.

Do you really wanna wait

even longer to get him?

We've got no choice, we can't

go outside when it's raining.

Maybe it is

and maybe it isn't.

There are ways for mermaids

to hold back the rain.

No way. We're not using my Moon

Ring to change the weather.

You're not meant to use it

to get legs either, but...

If anybody found out...


They'd banish us again?

We'd get in

even more trouble?

We came here to fix Zac.

We can't run away from that just

because of some stupid rain.

You wanna see your sister Aquata

again, don't you?

You know I do.

But wouldn't we need Nixie?

I mean, it took all three of us

to get our legs.

This is just

stopping the rain.

We can do it.


Come on, guys.


There's no need to panic.

Are you kidding?

There's every need.

We've gone camping every year.

Dad's gonna be crushed.

But I can't tell him if I go out

in this, I turn into a fish boy.

Okay, then

let him down gently.

Tell him you're feeling woozy

and running a temperature.

It's foolproof, works on

my parents all the time.

Your dad isn't a doctor.


Any other bright ideas?

I'm working on it.


Did it work?

I'm not sure.


What's going on?

Why is it so cold?

What's happening?

What did we do?

I don't know, let's try again.

But we can't--

We have to.



We made it snow.


I'm freezing.

Quick, make it stop.

Try harder.

What have we done?


We have to get out of here.



At least it's only

in the grotto.


You've got to be kidding me.

Let's melt it.

Use the Moon Ring.

After what happened?

No way am I using it again.



You're making it worse.

This was supposed

to be our way out.

Now we're trapped.

I told you it was a mistake

to use the Moon Ring,

but you wouldn't listen.

We can't have used it right.

We shouldn't have

used it at all.

This is your fault, not mine.

My skin.

It's so itchy.

And it's on your face too.

What's wrong with us?


So until this pressure

trough moves

we can expect

lots of heavy rainfall

and severe weather warnings

for coastal regions.

This is not good news.



You ready, Zac?

Oh, hey, Cam.

Sorry, this is the father-son

camping weekend.

Any other time

I'd ask you along--

That's cool. I would not want

to camp in this anyway.

If it was me and my dad, I'd

hope he'd cancel, to be honest.

The forecast is terrible.

Nice try, Zac, let's go.

Sorry, Dr. Blakely. You're gonna

have to tell him the truth.


Dr. Blakely, the real reason

Zac doesn't wanna camp is--


He's sick.

He just didn't wanna

bother you with it.

Oh, really?

How long have you felt off?

You don't feel hot.

Pulse isn't up.

You seem fine.

Why are you doing this?

Don't you wanna hang out

with your old man anymore?

Is that it?

Of course I do.

If this is your idea of a joke,

it's not very funny, Zac.

Now get your act together

and pack your gear, all right?



I feel terrible.

We can fix it.

We use the Moon Ring again--

And make it worse?

I said I wouldn't.

You don't know that.

Nixie's right,

you never give up.

I'm not risking it.

Don't ask me again.


It's getting worse.

Now my ears are ringing.

No, it''s that...

that thing.



Make it stop.


MAN [ON PHONE]: Hello?

SIRENA: Hello?

Oh, hi.

Wow, you sound like a real boy.

That's because I am a real boy.

You don't look like one.

Gee, thanks.

You sound familiar.


I've never spoken to you before.

Yes, you have.

Is that Sirena?

How did you know?

It's David from the café.

How did you get in there?

Through the door, like always.

What are you doing

at Miss Santos' place?

Um, she's our aunt.

We were just visiting.

Principal Santos is your aunt?

No kidding? I've got her

regular order to deliver.

Oh, right.

Since you're there,

do you mind if I drop it over?

I'll see you soon.

No. No--

Hello? David?

David, hello?


He can't see us like this.

How do I get him back?




Come on, guys.

Hello? Sirena?

Get rid of him.

Hi. Just leave it there.

I can't, it has to go

in the fridge.

I can do that.

Well, you have to open the door

a little bit more

so I can get the box in.

Oh, that's a nasty looking

rash. Are you okay?

Yeah, I'm fine, just--

Just give me the fish.

Yeah, no, that's all right,

I'll give you a hand.

You don't look

too good either.

I've got to get a doctor.

There's something wrong

with both of you.

No. There's

nothing wrong.

Come on,

a rash like that?

It's got to be serious.

Hello, Dr. Blakely, Surgery?


What's going on, Zac?

You know your father

loves these camping trips.

If you really

don't wanna go anymore,

don't play games.

He deserves better.

But he's not, he really is sick.

Cam, please.

If his father says he isn't--

Touch him now, he's burning up.

You really are running

a temperature.

Oh, darling, I'm sorry.

I feel terrible.

Well, at least this explains

a few things.

Your father made a mistake.

You're definitely not

well enough to go camping.

Hello, girls,

I'm Dr. Blakely.

That's a nasty rash.

How long have you had it?

Are you allergic

to anything?

Only kelp spores

in the Atlantic.

I'm not hungry, thanks.

What have you eaten today?

Caviar and some sea urchins

on the way in.

It must have been

from Miss Santos' fridge.

They didn't touch

any of the seafood I brought.

It isn't working.

That's odd.

You're burning up.

And so are you.

Did you eat

the seafood too?

It can't be an allergy to that.

You might wanna give me

a bit of space.

I'm not sure

if it's contagious or not.

Never seen anything like it.




Hey, Lyla?


Guys, why's it so cold?




I'm afraid your nieces aren't

very well at all, Mrs. Santos.

Why? What's wrong with them?

It's hard to say exactly, their

symptoms make no sense to me.

They'll have to go to hospital

for some tests.

Well, surely it's not that bad.

LYLA: Tests?

No, we can't.

It's the only way to find out

what's wrong.

Could you call an ambulance,


Yeah, sure.

Can you wait till I get home?

I might know what's wrong

with them.

Some unusual things

run in our family.

I'd rather not take any chances.

What is going on?

It was her idea, to use

the Moon Ring to stop the rain.


Who are you?

Oh, I'm Nixie.

You didn't know they were sick?

I came through the back door.

Your auntie

wants to talk to you.

Hello? Hello?


I told you to stay out

of trouble.

They used the Moon Ring

to stop it from raining.

They should never

have done that.

It snowed instead, and

now they're really sick

and have a horrible rash.

Of course they do. Do you have

any idea what that'd do to you?

You're southern mermaids.

There's no snow

in the South Pacific.

They've got snow rash.

Now listen because

you don't have much time.





It is contagious,

you've got it too.

Um, I have to go

do something.

That ambulance

better come quickly.



All right.

Dried seahorse powder.

Dried seahorse powder.


Hon, it's me.

Zac really isn't well.

He's burning up.

For goodness sake,

I thought he was faking.

A high temp, huh?

He doesn't have a rash, does he?



He might develop one.

So don't be too alarmed.

Even if it's quite severe.






What's taking that ambulance

so long?


We don't wanna go,

please, please.

We're fine, really.

There's nothing to be afraid of.

We just wanna make you better.

NIXIE: Psst! Stay there.



Just don't move, all right?

What was that?

We really don't wanna move

from here.




Finally, we'll get you

to the hospital and--

That won't be necessary.

I knew we'd be okay.

Sorry for causing

so much trouble.

The rash, it's gone.

And the fever. But how?

Guess it must've been something

we ate after all.

Thank you, Dr. Blakely.

We'll see you soon?

Are you sure you're gonna

be okay?

Never better.

But what about

the box of sea--

Bye, David. Thanks, doctor.

Bye, David.


You know, guys, I can't keep

saving your tails

like this all the time.


You're in the clear, man.

The storm's gone.


I can see blue sky,

so start packing.



How are you feeling?

I'm so sorry

for not believing you before.

You are?

It's okay, Dad.

No, it's not. I'm a doctor.

I should have listened

to my own son.

There's obviously something

going around.

Fever's gone.


I feel fine now.

I just saw the same thing happen

to Principal Santos' nieces too.

It was the weirdest thing.

It came and went so fast.

Next time you feel sick,

say so.

Am I that hard to talk to?

And if you don't wanna go

camping, tell me that too.

No, Dad, I really do.

We can go camping

anytime, son.

What's important is you feel

you can talk to me.

I do. Honest.


I am never using my Moon Ring

for anything like this again.

Oh, come on, it's the first time

we've got it wrong.

We're not old enough to know

how to use it properly.

"We don't know what we're

messing with, blah, blah, blah."

Please, we're gonna

hear it all from Rita.

You shouldn't have ignored her

and gone back to Mako.

What if you had been taken

to hospital?

We told her

we wouldn't make trouble.

I mean, we're lucky

she hasn't kicked us out.

Oh, no.

She still might.

When you told her that we

made it snow, did you say where?
