[Ondina] Anyone for crab pancakes?

-[Sirena] Try and keep me away.

What's this for?

Can't a mermaid spoil her friends
once in a while?

[Sirena] Anytime you like.



[Ondina] Pancake, Mimmi?

-[Mimmi] Not hungry.
-Come on.

They're your favorite.

I've got to go.

Wanna go for a swim later?

-I'm busy.

I tried.

You can't expect a couple of pancakes
to make everything all right.

-She could at least talk to me.
-You're not going back to the pod.

Don't you realize how upset she is?

By the way, you need a lot more practice
with the pancakes.

Have you ever noticed how most people
go to the movies on their first date?

Or dinner?

-Luckily, we're not most people.

I'm not even sure I like fishing.

Well, that's just because
you've never been fishing with me.

Trust me, it'll be a unique experience.

If you're serious about catching fish,
we should probably move.


Big fish swim in deeper water.


I knew that.

[grunts softly]

The anchor must be caught.

[Cam grunts] Uh...

I'll try reversing.

[Erik] Movies are great.

You sit in a big dark room
and watch pictures on a screen.

[Ondina] Uh-huh.
[Erik] And planes...

you fly through the sky higher than a bird
and can go anywhere in the world.


Then there's this giant purple lizard
that can fly you to the moon.



You haven't heard a word I've said.
What's up?

Mimmi's not happy about me
staying on land.

You're not having second thoughts,
are you?

No. Here is where I want to be.


I'm sure Mimmi will come round.

-[Cam grunts]
-[Carly] No luck?

It must be 30 meters down.
It's too deep to dive.

No signal.

[sighs] It's getting hot.

We should hang out on Mako
and wait for another boat to come by.

-You wanna swim to Mako?
-Oh, don't worry.

I'm a trained lifeguard.

[chuckles softly] Race you.

[David] There you go.

[Evie] Hi, Mimmi.

Earth to Mimmi.

-Something wrong?
-It's Ondina.

She's not coming back to the pod.

We've worked so hard to save our home
and now she's throwing it away.

Sounds like you could use
some retail therapy.

These just came in.
Why don't you try them on?

[Erik] Let me shout you a juice.


[Evie] Hi, Ondina.

-So, you're staying here?
-[Ondina] That's the plan.

I'm gonna live at Rita's.

Did Mimmi tell you?

She didn't seem too happy about it.

Things change.

Mimmi needs to understand that.

-I think you should talk to her.
-I've tried.

She just doesn't want to face reality.

Is that so?



I understand that this is hard for you.

-Do you?

Change is always hard,
but you have to deal with it.

Is that what you think this is about?
Me coping with change?

Things are the way they are, Mimmi.

If you don't accept it,
you're kidding yourself.

I see.

You get to do what you want
and I just have to accept it?

No discussion?

Come on. Mimmi...

You didn't even ask me about it.

You've made up your mind.
There's nothing else to say.

Don't we need matches to light a fire?

What fire?

Oh, this is a shelter so we can stay
on the beach and wait for passing boats.

Oh! Right.

Yeah, I see that now.

Don't you need rope
to tie it all together?

That's the beauty of my design.



-All done.
-[branches cracking]

[Carly gasps]



-Mimmi's being totally unreasonable.
-What happened?

I tried to talk to her.
I was calm, rational...

-She blew up at me.

You told your best friend
you're never gonna see her again.

What did you expect?

-You fixed the shelter.
-You did most of the structural work.

It was just a matter of
straightening it up.

[Cam sighs]

I'll get the signal fire started.

Don't you need matches to light it?

Some people do.

[clears throat] Watch and learn.

I'll be with you in a minute, Zac.

I'm flat out and Carly didn't show up
for her shift.

Tried calling her?

Non-stop. She won't answer.

Oh, that's not like Carly.

I'm a bit worried, actually.

She went fishing on Mako with Cam,
but that was ages ago.


Any second now.

-Do you want me to take over?
-No, I've got it.


-Are you okay?
-It's okay.

It's just a splinter.


We may be here for a while.
I'll go find us something to eat.

-I'll come.
-Uh, it's okay.

Conserve your strength.
You've done enough.

Back soon.

[all cheering]

Excuse me.



How can I help you?

I want a dolphin toy.

There you go.
It's $9.95.

Not that one.

I want that one.

They're all the same.

-No, they're not.
-They really are.

My mother says,
"The customer is always right."

So if I want another toy,
you have to give me one.


Can I help you?

-I was here first.
-I'll be with you in a second.

Hey! Bring that back here!

Me hunter. Me bring food!

Hey, Cam!

I caught lunch!


[Cam] Last piece is yours.

No, you have it.
You must be tired from all that hunting.

Lot of good it did.

A mango and a couple of berries.





There's plenty.

Shipwrecked sailors have been known
to live off these for years.

I sincerely hope we're not here that long.

Uh, I might go for a little walk.

I'll come.

I have to use the little boys' palm tree.

Right. I'll stay here then.

-What's going on?
-It's a disaster.

The anchor got stuck,
we had to swim ashore.

It's cool.
It'll make a great first date story.

Thanks for the sympathy,
but I'm supposed to be impressing Carly.

-Well, at least she's still alive.
-That's not funny!

She catches food better than me.

She made a fire better than me.
She does everything better than me!

You should've taken her to the movies

because you buy popcorn
better than anybody.

I'm serious.

This is humiliating.

[Zac sighs]

Look, don't sweat it, okay?

I have an idea how to redeem yourself.

It better be a good one.

They're the only kind I have.

Ondina told me what happened.
She's feeling really bad about it.

-And yet here you are, not her.
-You know she cares about you.

Let me see if I got this right.

My best friend says
she's leaving me to stay on land,

and this shows she cares about me?

Silly me.
How could I have not understood that?

-I don't have time for this now.

-Can you mind the cart?
-I guess. Why?

I need to find someone.


I guess it was hard for Mimmi
when her mother left.

I'm sure it was.

She got over it.

With the help of her friends.

And when the pod comes home,
she'll have her friends back.

But she won't have you.

You know, Veridia and I were
like you and Mimmi.

I don't have many regrets
in my life, but...

leaving her behind is one of them.

What you and Mimmi have is special.

[Sirena] Marine Park souvenirs!

Take the fun home with you.

-Any luck?
-[sighs] No.

-You and Ondina have to talk.
-She's made up her mind.

There's nothing to talk about.

[dolphins clicking]

-Did you hear that?
-The dolphin?

Did you hear what it said?

[clicking continues]

-It's her.


Marine Park souvenirs.

Happiness in a toy.

[Patty] Do a flip.

Go on.


Do it!

You're not allowed on here.

-I want to play with the dolphins.
-Come with me.

You can't make me.


No. I want to play with the dolphins.

Come and get your dolphin souvenir.

Want to buy a dolphin?

Where's Mimmi?

[Ondina] Mimmi, we need to talk.

Not now.

-I walked all the way here to see you.
-Can't you see I'm busy?

Come away from here. Please.

Mimmi, we've been friends
since we were hatchlings.

[dolphin clicking]

[Patty] Bring it here!

[Mimmi] Don't do that!
[Patty] Go on. Fetch.

-[Patty] Useless dolphin.

Leave the dolphin alone!

You're not the boss of me.
You work here.

Go get my toy back!


[dolphins clicking]

-[Ondina] There you go.
-How did you do that?

Do it again!


[Ondina] It's no big deal.

Who's gonna believe her?

Mermaids! Mermaids!

I can't be right all the time.

Mummy, I found mermaids!


Mummy, I found mermaids!

There was no need to use magic.
I was handling it.

I don't think so.
That little girl was walking all over you.

Well, you didn't have to interfere.

I was just trying to help.

I don't need your help.
I don't need you.

Cam? You haven't got yourself
lost in there, have you?

[Cam] Carly!

[man] Looks like a complete replacement.
[woman] Yes.

[man] What's the level?
[woman] 750.

Hold on, this should've been
serviced a while ago.

-Better check.
-[woman] On the cylinder.

[Patty] Mummy, there were mermaids
in the middle of the pool.

I saw them. I promise.

They must be over there,
under the bridge.

[boy] No way.

-Said it's mermaids, didn't she?
-Where are the mermaids?

[boy] Someone saw a mermaid.

[girl] They said the mermaids
were over there. Let's go!

Can you mind the cart for a minute?

Thank you. [giggles]

[Patty] They have to be here somewhere.

[boy] Mermaids?
[Patty] They were in the middle.

-It's just a theory, isn't it?
-I don't know.

-So cool.
-No way!

[woman 1] Yeah, I can't wait to see them.

[Patty] They have to be in here.
I really did see them.

[woman 2] Is that something?

-Where did they go?
-Is someone going in after them?

[woman] I still wanna see them.

[boy] Where are they?
[woman] They've gone.

You freed the anchor.


[exhales] I dived.

I thought you said it was too deep.

Well, that was before I remembered I could
hold my breath for two and a half minutes.

That's a strange thing to forget.

I'm a man of many talents, Carly.
It's hard to keep track of them all.

You don't have to try so hard
to impress me, Cam.

I'm already impressed.

[engine sputtering]

You might wanna prime it.

-I was just gonna do that.

[engine starting]

[man] I still wanna see them.

[woman 1] I agree.
[woman 2] Where are they?

[man] Here comes someone.

Hello, everybody!

I see you've had a glimpse of our newest
attraction, the Marine Park Mermaids.

Aren't their costumes fabulous?

-So lifelike.
-[man] You sure they're there?

The mermaids are real!
I saw them do magic.

Of course they are, little girl.

And as we all know,
mermaids are very elusive creatures.

And right now they're in the aquarium.

So, why don't we go and take a look
before they disappear again?

[woman] Yeah, I can't wait to see them.
[Sirena] Enjoy the show.

[Patty sighs]


Any mermaids there?

Why did you even come here?

-We needed to talk.
-You mean you needed to talk

so that you could feel
better about yourself.

And you're being so adult,
giving me the cold shoulder?

And those pancakes this morning?
What a pathetic effort.

Stop it!

You're acting like children.

Have you two completely forgotten
what you mean to each other?

With Ondina staying on land,
of course things will be different,

but that doesn't mean you have to
throw away what you have.

You can still be friends.

Unless you don't wanna be.

I just don't want to lose you.

You're my best friend.
You'll never lose me.

[Patty] That's them!

They're the mermaids!


No mermaids here.

-But I saw you.
-Patty. [chuckles]

[Patty] That's mine!

It will be, after you've paid for it.

$9.95, please.

[Evie] Hey.

Where have you two been?

Cam took me fishing on Mako.

[Evie] Mmm. Catch anything?


[Zac] I guess the fish
just weren't biting, huh?

Well, the trip wasn't just about fishing.


Yeah, it was more
about spending time together.

Oh, that's so sweet.

[Zac] I had no idea Cam was
such a sensitive guy.

That's not all. Did you know he can hold
his breath for two and a half minutes?

[Evie] Really?


Show them.

Watch this.

[clears throat]



Anyone want a juice?

[both laughing]

[Evie] Oh, Cam.

[Mimmi] One thing I'm gonna enjoy
about the pod coming back

is introducing them to fruit.

There's some other things about land
they should know, too,

like dresses, hairstyles.

I can't believe we were brought up
to think all land things were bad.

So maybe things don't have to go back
to being the way they were.

What if there was another way
for mermaids to live?

What if we didn't have to choose
between land and sea?

Do you really think that's possible?

If the mermaid council knew
what we know now,

don't you think they would
see things differently?

You'd be going against
centuries of tradition.

We all have connections to the land
that we don't want to lose.

Don't you think it's worth
finding a way to keep them?

[Sirena] Mimmi's right.

We have to try.

It won't be easy.

Nothing worthwhile ever is.

So, together?
