This is the best way to start the day.

-You, me and the reef.
-[Erik] No argument from me.

[Ondina] You know what'll
make it even better?

When the pod comes back.

I can't wait for you
to meet all my friends.

I know you'll like them.

And I'd like to meet them too,

but I'm not so sure
they'd like to meet me.

Mermen aren't the enemy.

I know that now.
I'll explain it to them.

Mermaids stick with mermaids,
and keep mermen out.

I can't see Veridia or the pod
ever changing that.

-I'll make them understand.
-What if they don't?

It'll be all right.



[Carly] Okay, that looks good.
Thank you.

-Sorry about the wait.
-No problems.

-So, weekend soon--
-What are you doing this weekend?

[both] You first.

No, you.

I was just wondering
what you had planned this weekend.

Nothing, just the usual.


Some friends are going out
to that new movie that just came out.

Yeah, so are mine.

-It's supposed to be pretty good.
-I had heard that.

-So, are you going?
-Uh, I don't know... you?

Hmm, me either.

-Guess I better get back to it then.
-Yeah, me too.

Thanks for the, uh, juice.


[Sirena] Try this on.

This stone is beautiful.

It will really bring out your eyes.

[Erik] I didn't mean to upset you,
but we have to be realistic.

Oh, hi.


Where were you this morning?
I thought we were going for a swim.

Sorry, I forgot.

We were just trying on
some of Rita's jewelry.

Doesn't that suit Mimmi?

[Ondina] Totally.

What do you think, Erik?

That's a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Rita has quite an eye for quality.

You guys are going to miss this place,
aren't you?

[Sirena] Why wouldn't we still be here?

[Erik] You'll live on the reef
like you used to.

You won't visit land again.

Erik thinks Veridia won't let us.

That everything will go back to how it was
when mermaids didn't visit land.

But we've made so many good friends here.

I'm not ready to give that up.

And I've got my brother
I waited my whole life to be with.

We'll live in both places like we do now.

I might go for that swim.

I'll come.

You don't really believe that, do you?

About living in both worlds?

Veridia won't let you
come and go between them.

That door's going to close.

We don't know that.

I'm starving after that swim.

I'd really love some prawns.
How about you?

-Hey, Evie.

-New stock?

-Cam, what's up?
-I was just wondering,

has Carly ever said anything to you?

About me?

-Just curious.


Ah, well, now that you mention it, yes.


I've heard her use the word "cheapskate."
You should tip her more.

And she's sick of putting
salad on your plate that you never eat.

-That's it?
-What were you expecting?

Oh, nothing.

Are you interested in Carly?

No! Of course not.

-Why? What's wrong with her?
-Nothing, she's great.

I... I was just curious.

Uh... newsflash.
Cam's interested in Carly.

-He told you he was interested?
-Of course not.

He said he wasn't.

So he's not then.

Carly, can I grab a juice, please?

[Erik] There's so much
amazing stuff here.

Rita must have taken years
to collect all this.

She's got a lot of it, that's for sure.

She's made a good life here on land.

No reason you couldn't, too.


There's no point pretending
we can go on like this.

Veridia won't accept me.

We can't live in two worlds.

So, you're going to have to pick
which side you want to be on.

I don't wanna give up seeing you.

I don't want that either,

but thousands of years
of mermaid tradition...

isn't going to change overnight
because of us.

But I don't want to give up
being with my friends and the pod either.

How can I choose?

I don't want to.

I shouldn't have to.
This isn't fair.

Hey, David?

-Do you ever hire this place out?
-Um, not usually. Why?

I want to have a party, with the band
and you and Sirena singing tomorrow night.

Sorry, not an option.
Too short notice.

Will this be enough for a deposit?

-And what time did you want it to start?
-About 6:00.

And what's it for, a birthday?

Uh, no. I just want to do
something special for Ondina.

Well, you're setting the bar a bit high
for the rest of us blokes, huh?

-Uh, have we got a deal?

I better let Sirena know.

This is tough, I know.

It's really, really tough.

I have something which might cheer you up.

In fact, I have a feeling that
by this time tomorrow night...

you're going to be
feeling much better.

How do you know that?

Because I'm throwing you
a party at the café.


Hey, guess what? Ondina?

Where is she?

I don't know.
She wasn't here when I got back.

Erik's throwing her a party
at the café tomorrow night.

He's hired me, David, the band,
the whole bit.

It's costing him a fortune.

What's that all about?

David said Erik wanted to
make her feel special.

I better find an outfit.

You should definitely wear that
pendant of Rita's you had on before.

It's not here.

It must be.

I can't see it,
and I know I put it down here.

[Sirena] It can't have disappeared.

How is Erik affording this party?
Waiters don't earn a lot, do they?

Maybe he saved up.

Well, he hasn't been here that long.

Maybe from wherever he worked before.

That pendant would be worth a lot.

Remember he said Rita had
an eye for quality?

Maybe he does, too?

You don't think he took it?

Well, I don't want to think that,
but it is missing,

and suddenly he has
all this money for a party.

It's a coincidence.

We just need to keep looking.
We'll find it.

I hope so.

I just cannot get enough of this salad.

But you never eat salad.

Yeah, I realized I should try it.
You go to all the trouble.

Boy, I've been missing out.
What is this?


It's delicious.

-I'll be right back with change.
-Keep it.

-You gave me too much.

I'm no cheapskate.

About this party--

All organized.
Just spread the word, okay?

I never realized
mermen had that sort of money.

I get by.
Are you offering to chip in?

Actually, I'm wanting to know
what's happened to Rita's pendant.

The one you saw this morning.

It's missing.

You think I took it?

Suddenly you have a lot of money,
and you only work in shifts--

So I stole it?

Because that's what mermen do.
We're thieves.

I can't believe I'm hearing this.

It's a pretty big coincidence.

And that's all it is.

I know I've made some mistakes,
but you're crossing a line here.

How I pay for a party for Ondina
is my business.

I'm asking because I care about Ondina.

So do I.

What do you think?
It's for the party.

Oh, pretty.

-Please don't be angry with me.
-About what?

It was for the right reason,
you have to believe that.

What did you do?

Rita's pendant, the one I had on
this morning, is missing.



I asked Erik where he got
the money for the party.

You think he took it?

Well, if he did,
I don't think he meant any harm.

He just wants to make you happy.

But he didn't deny taking it either.

I thought we'd got past
you being jealous of him and me.

I'm not jealous,
I'm just concerned about you.

Well, you can stop bothering.

[Evie] Busy, huh?

I've got to get ready for this party
Erik's throwing Ondina.

Talk about no notice.

Who knows? It might be fun.

You could dance with someone.

Like who?

You and Cam have known each other
for a long time.


I thought you might be interested in him.

It's not that I don't like him.

I've known him since kindergarten.

He used to steal my lunch.

I think I put glue in his hair once.

So you've liked him since then?

I'm going to the party to work,

not to have a date.


-Uh, the girls aren't here.
-I know.

I wanted to talk to you.

I'm wondering about
when the pod comes back.

Do you think I can still
come on land and see Erik?

Our worlds have always been separate.

So I'm gonna have to choose
between the pod and him.

Like you had to with Harry.

How did you know it was right
to be with him and to leave the pod?

I won't lie,
it wasn't easy.

In fact, it was an extremely difficult
and painful decision.

The only advice I can give you
is to follow your heart.

Why didn't I listen to you
about not saying anything?

Because Ondina's your best friend
and you were worried about her.

And now she's never gonna forgive me.

Not unless it turns out
you were right about Erik.

-You think I might be?
-I didn't say that.

We still don't know where
he's getting his money from.

Sorry to interrupt, Erik,
but the money that you owe me,

I need the rest of it before tonight.

Sure, I'll, uh, get it right now.

Okay, we're all set for tonight.

Erik's just gone to get the final payment.

-Do you have time for another rehearsal?
-[Sirena] Of course I do.

[Rita] I like my place
to be neat and tidy.

-I can't keep cleaning up after you.
-[Sirena] Sorry.

We were looking for something.

I even found this
in a bowl of prawn shells yesterday.

I had to soak it
just to get the smell out.

-You had it?
-It is mine.

And my jewelry goes back
where it belongs, thank you.

-I've got something to tell you.
-So do I.

♪ You've been making my heart ache ♪

♪ You've been making
my heart break without you ♪

♪ Feel I'm making a... ♪

The place looks amazing.

But a whole band is a bit excessive.

[Erik] Let me get you a drink.

♪ If you can't be mine then I'm leaving ♪

♪ You've been making my heart ache ♪

Great party.


What I said about Erik...

I was wrong and I'm really sorry.

I'm not the one
you should be apologizing to.

♪ If you can't be mine then I'm leaving ♪

[crowd applauding and cheering]

♪ Every night
In my bed I lay... ♪

You'll be happy to know
we found Rita's pendant.



I never should have
accused you of taking it.

You have every right to be angry with me.

Good, but Rita's not the only one

who's collected stuff from the ocean
over the years.

It's how I've managed to survive on land.

There's eight ways to say sorry
in blue whale speak, if that helps.

I don't need to hear the other seven.

Apology accepted.

♪ And you can mean everything to me ♪

♪ Now I want you to see
Your love sets me free ♪

-Nice dress.
-Thanks, it's new.

It's a shame you have to work.

Somebody has to.

You're missing out on the party, though.

You should have one dance.

♪ Now I want you to see
Your love sets me free ♪

I can't, I'm working.

The whole night?

Uh, we need more ice.
I'm... I'm gonna get some.

-Why didn't you ask Carly to dance?
-I did.

She has to get more ice.

-Well, go on then.

Help her get it.

Oh, yeah.

-Need a hand?
-I'm fine.

-Let me help.
-I can do it.



Why aren't you out there
partying like everyone else?

Because I'd rather be in here with you.

Cam, there are a million reasons
why you and I can't happen.

Are you sure it's a million?
I only counted 900,000.

So you agree it's a bad idea.

So we should just forget about this?

About what?

There is no "this."

Isn't there?


[fabric tearing]



[door slams]

What happened?

I'm an idiot.

[slow song playing]

Did you have a great time?

We can't have parties every day.

Life on land can be good.
You have to admit it.

This is what our lives could be like.

Stop pressuring me.

I'm not.

You threw this whole party to pressure me.

I don't wanna lose you.

If the pod won't let me see you,

living on land is the only way.

You could stay with Rita,
then we could see each other all the time.

Think about it.


[Carly singing]
♪ I lose myself every time ♪

♪ I see your face ♪

♪ I wait around
It seems that there is no other way ♪

[door opens]

Sorry, party's over.
Café's closed.

I'm not here for the party.

You say we have nothing in common,
but we do.

You like to sing, I like to sing.

♪ I lose myself every time
I see your face ♪

Please, just stop.
Stop, please...

You can't sing.

I didn't say I could,
just that I like to.

There might be a million reasons
why we shouldn't happen...

but there's also a million why we should.

You're giving me a second-hand rose.

So I'm a cheapskate.

But you know that already.

[chuckles softly]
Yeah, I guess I do.

Even if I say sorry
for the rest of my life,

it still won't be enough.

When you reacted the way you did
about the pendant,

I knew the pod would do the same.

I was wrong.

We'll make them see they are, too.

If you couldn't trust him,
why would Veridia or the pod?

They won't accept Erik,
or you having a merman brother,

or us spending time on land.

-I have to choose.
-[Mimmi] No.

There has to be another way.

There isn't.

I've made my choice.

I'm not coming back to the pod.
