Mako Mermaids (2013–2016): Season 1, Episode 7 - Zac's Pool Party - full transcript

Believing that Zac's unusual behavior is a result of feeling lonely, Evie decides to throw Zac a surprise pool party, against both Cam and Zac's wishes. Because of his being a merman, Zac isolates himself from the party when Lyla tries to console him. After seeing the two together, Evie believes Zac's behavior is the result of him seeing another girl. When Cam hears of this, his frustration with Zac increases and he pushes Zac into the pool, where his secret is "exposed" to the mermaids. Meanwhile, Evie's friend Carly becomes upset when her crush, David, spends all his time with Sirena.

Come on,

I could've lasted way longer.

How many minutes was that?

After 20 minutes,

I kind of lost interest.

I reckon I could last

a whole hour

without taking a breath.


Hey, Zac.

Stop her!

He's training.


He hasn't been lately.

Well, he's back into it now,

so better not disturb him.

Can I buy you a juice?

Now? I just got here.

Can't mess up his program.

Let's go.

We need to talk.




Oh, my...

What's wrong with Zac lately?

He's never around,

he never calls.

Is he stressing over something?


Nothing special.

Are you sure?

It's just not like him.

I'm his best mate.

I'd know.

Well, something's up.

Why don't we invite

a few guys over to hang out

and cheer him up?

Cheer him up?

Yeah, like a pool party.

Oh, no.

No, a pool party

is definitely not a good idea.

Why not?

He's not been

into swimming much lately.

He was just now.

I know, but...

So we won't tell him.

That way he can't say

he's not in the mood.

Surprise him? Don't think

he'd like that either.

He'll love it.

You wanna see him

back to normal, don't you?

Hi, Dr. Blakely, it's--

It's Evie.


How are we gonna get rid

of Zac's powers?

Nothing has worked.

I still say

we become his friend.

We get him to trust us,

and then we work together

to get rid of them.

We tried being friends with him

and it didn't work.

It would've.

We just got interrupted,

that's all.

He's never gonna trust us

enough to tell us his secret.

I'm good

at getting people to open up.

What is he, a clam?

Why's he gonna

admit anything to you?

I'll force him.

He's gonna love that.

He won't know he's being forced.

He'll be unconscious?

I'll be subtle.


Because you, my friend,

are about as subtle as a walrus.

Okay, so good luck

with that.


A pool party.

Great, just great.

Why didn't you talk her

out of it?

Like you've ever talked Evie

out of anything?

It's never been

this important.

So it's all on me again?

You could've come up

with something.

Like the truth, maybe?

You're joking.

No, I'm not joking, Zac.

She's your girlfriend.

She knows you're keeping

something from her.

And how long is she gonna

stick around

once she realizes

I'm a freak?

I've stuck by you, haven't I?

But it can't all be up to me.

I just can't keep on

stalling her forever.


Just find a way

to stop what she's planning.

You find a way.

I didn't know

Zac was having a party.

Neither does he.

It's a surprise,

to cheer him up.

So can you come?


We can hang out,

talk about something other

than what table six ordered.

Okay, cool.

Sounds good to me.

Hey, guys.

Would you like a table?

Let me clear this one up

for you.

Have you seen Zac?

Not today.

I'll see him tomorrow,

if that helps.

There's a pool party

at his place.

A party?



Maybe you'd like to come?


Yeah. We'd love to, thanks.


You meant all of us,

didn't you?

Um...yeah, I guess.

Thank you for that invitation.

I told you I'd figure out

how to get close to Zac.



You've been out here a while.

Just doing some warm-ups.

What happened?

I don't know.

I just noticed.

You just noticed!

It's almost empty.

Better get the pool guy back.

Oh, no, you know

how long he takes to come.

It has to be fixed by tomorrow.

How come?

What's the rush?

Well, someone might turn up,

you never know.

It must be a block

in one of these pipes.

Here, take this.

I can't.

I haven't finished my homework.

It will only take a minute.

Here, hold it.

I'm way behind in my studies.

You've got time to train

half the day.

Mate, I don't know

what's wrong with you lately.

It's not like you've got

much to do around here,

but at least you're supposed

to look after the pool.

Rob. Phone for you.

Oh. Thanks.

I'll be right back.

Just get it sorted,

all right?

Sure, Dad.

He's getting away

with far too much lately.


I've been missing you.

Me too.

That's why I called you.

We need to spend

some quality time together.

Here I am.

I meant a whole day.

Chilling, catching up.

Just the two of us.

I can't wait. When?


Tomorrow's not good.

Why? What's happening?

Uh, I've got plans.

Oh, yeah? Something more

important than me?


So cancel.

I know I've been neglecting you.

Let me make it up to you.


anything you like.

We can catch a movie

and go for a run.

We haven't been hiking

for ages.

Sounds amazing.

But not tomorrow.

Come on, whatever it is,

you can put it off for us.

Don't, Zac.

If I told you,

you'd understand.

Why can't you

tell me now?

I just can't.


So just move over for a sec.

Just for a sec, move over.

Is this really what they wear

to parties?



I just look stupid.

No. You look fine.


You girls look stunning.

We're only going

so we can get close to Zac

so he'll tell us his secret.

In my experience,

it's not easy

getting teenage boys

to talk about themselves.

That's why we have

to build his trust first.

He's probably feeling lonely.

He'll wanna talk to someone.

Nice day for it.


Cut the act.

We're only out here

because Evie's partying up

and wanted me out of the way.

I could've cleared off

by myself.

And not come back

for the party.

Which'd dump you

in it, right?

I can't even risk

pretending to fish.

Just like I can't risk

this party

or heaps of stuff anymore.

Aren't you forgetting

about the upside?

The torpedo swimming?

The amazing powers?

I'd swap with you

any day.

Hey, Carly, here's that

order of prawns you wanted.

Oh, thanks, Hannah. Sorry

I forgot to pick it up myself.

Oh, that's no probs,

the cafe's on my way here.

Why did you get so many?

For Zac. He's been ordering

nothing but at the cafe lately.

It's weird.

I'm so glad you could make it.

Hey, nice shirt.

Gee, thanks.

I hope you don't mind

I asked some friends along.


Do you want a drink

or something to eat?

Yeah, thanks.

Here we go.

I can't see Zac.

Oh, what a waste of time.

It was fun for me too,


Maybe I could still

break a leg or something.

Just act surprised.

They're here. Quiet, everyone.

All right,

let's get this over with.

What'd I say

about surprised?

Maybe take it down

a few notches.






I hope it's okay

we turned up.

Sure, it's fine.


Having fun?

Yes. Thanks for this.

Come on in,

the water's beautiful.

No, I don't feel like it.

I'm not coming out

till you join me.

Watch out!


I'm just chilling here

for now, okay?




People are looking.


You're not supposed

to eat this part.

But it's my favorite bit.

Some people have

strange tastes.

Oh, she's just nervous.

Me, I obviously know

which end of the prawn is up.

Bet you write stuff like that

on your wall.

I don't write anything

on walls.

Yeah, people put

way too much rubbish on them.

They do?

Not me.

So if you wanna friend me,

hit me up.


You mean that? Hit you up?

Why wouldn't I?

You have a crazy

sense of humor.


That's a nice song.

Do you like music?

I like to sing.

Yeah, I've heard you.

What songs do you like?

Just ones the pod sing,

you know.

The Pod? I don't think

I've heard of that band.

Where are they from?

Oh, I don't know.

Hey, David, wanna come

for a swim?

Yeah. Up for it, Sirena?

Oh, no, I didn't bring

my swimmers.

To a pool party?

That's a shame,

we won't be long.

If you wanna go,

please just go.

No, no. That's fine.

I'll stay here with you

and do the music.


Are you sure

you don't wanna come in?

I had a big swim yesterday.

You don't mind

that I've done this?

No. No, it's

an awesome surprise.

Really thoughtful.

So thanks.

So how's it going

with him?

It's impossible.

Whenever I get a chance,

she gets in the way.

Well, I warned you, didn't I?

Maybe I can help.


EVIE: Zac?

There you go.


Not partying?

I'm not in the mood.

Me neither.

I still feel like a bit of

a stranger in there, though.

I'm the same.

But they're your friends.

Why do you feel like that?

No special reason.

It's gonna be

a full moon shortly.

It always makes me feel



The full moon.

Doesn't it get to you?

No. Why should it?

I just wondered.

You don't talk much.

Not much to talk about.

It can help, you know,

if you've got someone

to share things with.

Yeah, rules are, if I catch it,

he has to set up the tent.

What's going on

with Zac and that girl?

You've been covering for him

all the time.

I don't know what you mean.

All that stuff

about busy training.

You really thought

I wouldn't find out?


He's been seeing

someone else.

Oh, no, no, no.

You're way off there.

The new girl. Lyla.

Their buddy.

Lyla? I don't know

what you're talking about.

I saw them just now

cozying up on the jetty.

Well, that's news to me.

You've both been scamming.

You're not very good at it.

Hey! Back off!

I'm-- I'm

sick of this, all right?

I've had it with both of you.

I can tell

you're worried about something.

Look, I don't wanna

talk about it, okay?

It can make a difference,

trust me.

All you've gotta do

is just share with me.

I get this.

You're trying

to hit on me.

Excuse me?

Lyla, if you're trying

to make some kind of move,

forget it.

You've gotta be kidding.

It's how it looks.

Sharing, let's talk,

the standard come on.

I've already got

a girlfriend.

She's out of her mind.

I wouldn't go for you if you

were the last fish in the sea.

Same goes for me.

Fine by me too.


Why her?

Why any of them?

I'm gonna be sick.

Me too.

You're a great dancer.


I haven't had legs for long.

What happened?

He's one stuck-up,

fat-headed land boy,

and I'd rather get close

to a shark.

Wow, sounds like

it went really well.

Can we just

get out of here?

Come on, Sirena.

I have to go.

What, right now?


I just do.

But thanks,

I had a really fantastic time.

Me too.

Can't you stay

till the end of the song?

Yeah, sure.

What were you doing out here

with Lyla?

What? Nothing.


Evie saw you together.

We were talking.

And the rest?

Well, she's wrong.

I'm sick of being caught

in the middle of this.

So don't be.

What choice have I got?

You keep away and let me

front her for you over and over.

And she's right

about one thing.


You have changed.

Knock it off.

You used to think about

other people.

Now you're totally focused

on you.

That's not true.

You're out here

with another girl

and getting me to cover for you.

I wasn't.

What sort of patsy

do you think I am?

No more.

You can't treat me like this.

I said I wasn't, all right?


See you.

Bye. Bye. Bye.


You're so far up yourself

you can't even see it.

Your personal bests,

your superpowers.

So that's it.

You're jealous.

Oh, yeah.

I've seen you watching me swim.

Wishing you were half as good.

Have a listen

to yourself, mate.

You're on one huge ego trip.

If that's what you think,

then why are you even here?

I'm not. I'm splitting.

Have a good party, loser.


What happened to you?


I know this must be

freaking you out.


It happened on Mako Island.

Me and Cam were camping there

one night and...

I saw this light coming

from a cave in some rocks.

And I went in...


That's all I remember.


When was this?

It was a while ago.

It was a full moon.


There you are.

What's going on?

Nothing, just chatting.

We were just thanking Zac

for the party, that's all.

We're going now.

About that stuff before,

don't worry, we're good.

What did that mean?

Don't know, nothing.

Are you seeing her?


No way.

It's how it looked, Zac.

Well, you're wrong.

We've never had

secrets before.

I'm not lying to you.

I really hope not.



I had a really good time.

So you keep saying.

And we did it.

Zac finally trusts us.

Well, he doesn't really have

a choice.

He kind of has to.

No, he wants to.

I talked to him.

He's lonely,

he's not happy.

He needs someone

to share all this with,

and he's got no one else now.

Zac wants to get rid of his

powers just as much as we do.


kind of sounds like

we've got him

right where we want him.
