We need a new strategy

with Zac.

Zapping him didn't work,

so what we have to do

is become his friend.

Hello? His friend? Really?

How's that gonna help anything?

Well, he'll open up to us

about his new powers

and then we'll convince him

that we can help him lose them.

But we actually don't know

how to do that.

Yeah, and what if

he doesn't wanna be your friend?

How many friends have you made?

You didn't really hang out

with anyone in the pod, either.

You're kind of a loner.

There are other creatures

in the sea to hang with.

Yeah? Like dolphins?

Are you talking about dolphins?

Can you speak dolphin?

Do you?



Were you just talking

about me?

Do you really think that making

friends with Zac will work?

It's worth a shot.

It's about his feeding time

at the cafe.



I'm guessing...

this sudden taste for seafood's

got something to do with...

you know, being a fish?

I don't know. Maybe.

Do you want one?


I'll wait for

my blueberry pancakes, thanks.

Oh, I came round earlier.

You weren't home.

I was out on the reef.

It's amazing at first light.

You should see it.

Stingrays sleeping...

sharks, dolphins.

It's a whole new world.

You gotta come check it out

with me.

You're forgetting,

I don't have a tail.


Come on, it'll be awesome.

I'll let you know.

Hey, bro.

You're late.

What's the big deal?

You work too hard.

And you hardly work at all.

I was busy.

Buying a new boat.

It's a beauty.

DAVE: Yeah, I bet.

That's it?

Hi, David.

Hi, Sirena.

Is this the girl

you're always talking about?

You're Sirena.


Hi. I'm Joe.


His brother. Oh, make that

the better-looking brother.

He talks about you

all the time.

Take a seat.

I'll be with you in a minute.

Okay, thanks.

So, you gonna show her

my boat?

She wouldn't be


Of course she would.

You're hopeless with chicks,


This is the perfect time.

They're happiest

when they're feeding.

I don't know.

They look pretty distracted.

I'm telling you,

this will be easy.

You can't just

walk up to them.

Not more about these

land people rules, please.

I have studied them

for a very long time.

The ritual stays the same.

Look at me.

First, you make eye contact.

And then you smile.

And then you just ask them

about themselves

and talk about something

that you both have in common.

By then,

Zac will be halfway home.

Exactly why I'm dealing

with this.


So you like prawns, huh?

Me too.

You know, there are hundreds

of different species of prawns.

I think I can name them all.

Would you like to hear them?

Um, some other time.

Do you like crabs?

How about crabs?

You gotta like crabs.

Um, yeah.

I like pancakes.


This is never going to work.

Come on. See how she rides,

mate. Come for a spin.

I'm working, Joe.

They can manage without you

for 10 minutes.

Come on, once around

the Broadwater. It will be fun.

I've got customers waiting.

Like Sirena?

Ask her along too.

Trust me, it's gonna impress her

your brother's got

a state-of-the-art cruiser

with awesome horsepower.

Trust me, it's not.

And you wonder why

you don't have a girlfriend.

All right,

if you won't ask her, I will.

Okay, I'll come.

Just give me a second.

Have you ever had

the lobsters around here?


They're the best.

Best I've had,

and I've had a lot.

What do you think about that?

About the lobsters.

Not about me eating so many.


No. Forget it.

I guess.

Well, we should be friends

because we have so much

in common.


Um, sure.


Hey, here's your takeaway order.

I wouldn't leave it out

too long.

Seafood tends to go off

pretty quick.

Good point.

Sorry, I gotta go.


She's weird.

Yeah, but she is cute.

Well done.

You sure handled that.

Let me give you a hand

with this.

I think I can manage.

No, really, it's no problem.

I'm just gonna go for a swim.

I'll meet you around there.

Hey, I'm not busy.

If you still wanna

make friends...?

No. Gross.

You really don't need

to do this. I'm fine with them.

I'm happy to help.

I'm on your way.

You know my way?


What do you think?

It's awesome, huh?

It looks just like

your last boat.

Are you kidding?

Man, it's way better.

Check it out.

We got integrated GPS

depth, a fish finder.

Man, there's nothing

this baby can't do.



You hang out with Cam a lot.


He's my best friend.

You must get sick of him.

Don't you want some new ones?

No, not really.

I would.

You probably do too.

You just don't realize it.

I don't think so. I've got

plenty of friends at school.

But we don't go there.

Why not? Your aunt's

the principal, isn't she?

Yeah, Auntie Rita.

She wouldn't let us.

How come?

Yeah, Sirena, how come?


we go to a different one.

Yeah, you can have friends

that go to a different school,

can't you?

I guess.

Well, we're here now, so...

thanks for this.

Okay. Cool. Just go right in.







We're about to get busy.

I can't leave Carly on her own

for too long.



Hey, we've got something here.

What is that?

It's probably just a dolphin.

It's not like any dolphin

I've ever seen.

Let's follow it.


Yeah, come on,

let's check it out.

Are you kidding?

That's illegal,

not to mention cruel.


Who's gonna tell?


The first time I saw this place,

I liked it.

This is the first time.

Right. I mean, when I walked in.

My first impression.

I like having my own space.

Being independent.

Is that why

you don't live with the pod?



Is that why you don't live

with your parents?

They're up at the house.

Maybe we should go

and find Nixie.

Not yet.

But we said we would meet--

We only just got here.

What are all these?

Sporting trophies.

You know, for being good

at stuff.

Surfing, swimming, life saving.

You must do those things a lot.

I'm not really into

all that now.

Why not?

I've kind of grown out of it.

Don't know how

you can give it all up.

I mean, if I was this good,

I'd really miss it.



There it is.

It's coming up under us.

What is that?

Never seen anything like it.

I told you, man, I told you

it was something weird.




Look at that thing move!

That is no dolphin down there.

What else

could it be?

I don't know, but there's

only one way to find out.



Did you see that?

Did you see

how it just turned like that?

Call it off!

Are you crazy?

I wanna know what it is!


It's heading for the canal.


You're scaring it, man.

I'm not gonna lose it now.

Quit being a jerk.

You've had your fun!


Do much fishing?

Cam and I go out a bit.


Where do you go?

Out in the bay.

What about that island off

shore? What's it called?


Right, Mako.

Ever caught anything out there?

Nah. It's not a good spot.

Maybe you use the wrong bait.

Doesn't matter what I use.

Nothing works.

Bet I could catch something.

What makes you think you'd do

better than anyone else?


Suddenly you're an expert?

I'll prove it to you.

We should check it out sometime.

No point.

I'm done

with the whole fishing thing.

Like you're done with the whole

swimming and surfing thing?

Are you allergic to water

or something?



Where did it go?

I don't care anymore.

Just let me off.

All right.

You wanna walk home?

Fine, get off then.



Hey. Hey, hey, it's down there.

It's under the jetty!

Just leave it alone, man.

We should go. Nixie will be

wondering where we are.

Then she should've

come with us.


Turn your boat

and get out of here!


Are you crazy?

I'm not going anywhere.


You're the one who's crazy.

What's going on out there?



Don't be stupid!

You're scaring it.

What's up?

My idiot brother's chased

something into the canal.

It's down there.

What is it?

Don't know.

Dolphin maybe, we're not sure.

Hey, Sirena, scope it out.

Take a look!

Ignore him, all right?


I can't see it.


Joe scared it with his boat.

He's been stalking it.


Well, why doesn't it take off?


I don't know. Maybe it's hurt.

I think I saw a dolphin.

It can't be!

I'm pretty sure it was.


Me too. I think it's a rare one.

No way! It's way too fast!

He's not leaving.

What if he takes a closer look?

Nixie can't stay

invisible forever.

One of us should stay here

in case he tries anything.


I'll go help Nixie.

Can't you make him go?

He won't listen to me.

Yeah, he's out there now.

No, I haven't seen the dolphin

myself, but someone else has.

We need the water police.

Well, how long will they be?





Hey! Hey!

Hey, there's two!

Dave, there's two now!

Have a look, man.

It's right underneath you.

Moron. I can't believe

I'm related to that.

Jump in! If you don't, I will.

He's going in.

Can't you stop him?


I tried.

Whoa, whoa...


What's going on?


Whoa. Hey, hey, hey...

I can't control it.


I can't, I can't stop it!

Why won't it stop?

What's happening?

Who knows?


Easy! Easy!

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey. Whoa.

Guys! Guys!




Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!


DAVE: Did you hear that?


It sounded like dolphins.

They must've gotten away.

I think you're right.


Oh, hey, it's stopped.

How about that?




These ones are on the house.


What's the occasion?

It's not every day my big

brother gets what he deserves.

The police impounded his boat.

That's what you get

for chasing dolphins.

I still don't understand what

happened to his boat, though.

New boats, mate.

They're pretty high tech.

Yeah. Right.

But I know what you did.

I didn't do anything.

It must've been you.

I saw you.

I don't know

what you're talking about.

You called the cops,

didn't you?

Oh, yeah, you're right.

That was me.

Then the second round's

on the house too.



If only I'd had just

a little more time with Zac.

We were getting really close.

We would've become friends

with him for sure, I know it.

Yeah. It's my fault.

Can we stop with the if's?

The main thing is

we got you out of there

without anybody seeing anything.

You're right.

Thanks for saving me.

It wasn't just us.

Zac used his powers too.

He was the one who started

all that stuff with the boat.

It's pretty cool he did that

to protect a dolphin.

Well, lucky he can't speak

their language

or he would have known

what he really saved.

Yeah, that dolphin call

was pretty clever.

You really had him believing

it was a dolphin in the end.

What exactly did you say,

by the way?

I'm not telling.

Was it about me again?

It was, wasn't it?
