Ocean Girl (1994–1997): Season 2, Episode 13 - The Return - full transcript

Neri and Mera make the decision to return to the Ocean Planet and convince Diane that her research must continue. Froggy fixes HELEN, with a little help from Damien. Commander Byrne has Forsythe arrested when HELEN identifies him as the saboteur.

It is vital that Neri and Mera
make their decision.

Their people need them
as soon as possible.

And our fuel supply
is already low.

We can wait no longer.

I know.

But you must understand

that there are many things
on Earth

that they hold very dear.

They have a very
difficult choice.

We must know by the rising
of tomorrow’s sun.

It’s time for me to meet mother.

Stay here.

Mera and I have been given this gift.

And our people are in need of it.

So it seems I must go.

Well, I um…

I think I knew all along that...

that was probably
the choice you’d make.

My heart is torn.

It hurts to think of leaving
you forever.

And Charley.

Who will care for him
when I am gone?

We’ll do our best,


Winston will feed him.

There is also father’s mission.
To watch over the sea.

It would be ended
and I will have failed him.

Then stay and finish it.

I mean,

do you these guys
really need both of you?

I don’t think Mera can do
it on her own.

And I could not stay unless
she willed it, too.

Please don’t be angry.

I have to go.

But I thought you liked it here.

I do, Brett.

And I’ve learned to love
the island as well, but...

this is our chance to go
to our our real home.

Be with our own people.

I want to take it
while I can.

Wouldn’t you?

It’s going to be weird,

real weird,
without you two around.

But I guess me and Brett will just
have to try and get used to it.

Yeah, it’s tough work
giving mum ulcers

and driving commanders crazy.

That sort of thing...

but hey, someone’s got to do it.

What about you, mother?

What will you do?

Oh, I think I’ll find

a new field of work.

Something more practical

that will let us stay on ORCA.

But the book of Charley’s

The dictionary?

I’ll just have to forget it.

I’d more or less decided to,



even with your help,

it was really just
a pipe dream.

I’m not sure we’ll ever be able
to make contact with them.

You must not give up now.

Mera, come here.
You also.

Sit with us.

I only hope,

but perhaps with both of us....

this can happen.

Join hands.

Think hard together.


call to Charley.

You hear him?


I can hear him!

Now, Mera,

we must go further
into his head.

Further and further,

until we are looking out

through his eyes.

I felt what he was
singing about!

What is it?
What happened?

Enough to convince me
we should continue our work.

We might not make the breakthrough
in our lifetime, Winston, but...

when it happens,

it’ll be worth waiting for.

I think they should just try
and make a swim for it.

They’d never make it half way.

Those creeps will be
monitoring the entire sea.

Settle down, okay?

Now, I’ve got a plan.

It’s kind of crazy,

but the only way we are going
to beat UBRI

is to outwit them.


we need boats and drivers.

Why not leave that to me.

I’m not trying to take over
your show, Jason.

I’m just trying to help.

All right.

Froggy, are you sure HELEN
can identify who wrecked her?

If I can get her going.

Keep at it.

It’s vital.

Just what sort of plan is this?

A plan that better work.

Or Neri and Mera are done for.

Did you get it?

But we’re being watched.


That’s just what Jason
wants. Go on.

Something’s being

and I think it’s going
to be tonight.

Then I want you to
maintain a constant

watch on the pontoon.

If the girls attempt to leave,
contact me straight away.

Tell all our boats
to be standing by.

It appears they are about
to make their move.

Where on earth did these come from?

Well, we “borrowed” then.

Don’t ask.

All right!

Now we’re starting
to rock and roll.

Forget it.

You’re not giving up,
are you?

I’ve tried everything I know.

There’s nothing else I can do.

Come on.

We’d better let the others know
they can’t rely on HELEN for any help.

I don’t believe it!

She’s up!

No doing much, though.

Doesn’t matter.

At least I can get her
full functions

back from here.

I just spotted Forsyth.

He’s up on the pontoon,
keeping watch.

Did he see you?

Yeah, he had to.

But it was so dark up there
he couldn’t

make out what I was

Well, what about Liselle?

She’s still lurking around down
the corridor.

They’re keeping close tabs on us,
all right.

What kept you?

I don’t know how I let myself
get talked into this.

Remember, the moment
UBRI sees you,

swing due west,

give it all the throttle
you’ve got,

and that’ll take you out
to the open sea.

Sam, there is an old
tibetan saying:

A cat becomes truly nervous
when instructed how to swim.

What the heck does that mean?

It means I would be rather
more confident

if I was a better sailor

I don’t know why you
chose me for this task.

We also have a saying
at sea:

Any port in a storm.

Which means using the best
of what’s available.


Your passengers are waiting.


I’m ready.


Go, go, go!

Something’s definitely
going on down there.

People have been coming and going
from the Bates cabin all night.

Any sign of the girls,

they’re still inside.


All clear, come on!

The boat is over here!

Come on, girls!


They thought they’d fool us
by not using Phillip’s boat.

It’s an ORCA shark cat.

Just Dr. Seth and
the girls aboard.


I think we’ve picked them up.


Lights on.

They’re making a run.
Full power!

Yes, sir.

Oh my goodness!

Hang on tight!

Call all other boats in the area
to cut them off.

Calling boat 3 and 5.

3, roger.

Boat 5, roger.


I think I’ve finally reconnected
everything right.

So go on.

But if I haven’t,

I could blow her up to

This time forever.

There’s only one way
to find out

- Look, if you’re not going to do it, I’ll…
- All right, I’ll do.

Yes! Yes!
We did it!

Can you believe it?

We did it!

Hello, Froggy.

I am fully operational.

Would you like me
to restore

normal on-board power supplies?

One section at a time, HELEN.

We don’t want
to overload you.

Full power’s coming back on.

Could you not touch anything

He did this?

It’s amazing, ma’am.

The whole system’s coming
back on line.

Not only that.

She’s going to identify
who messed her up.

Isn’t she, Froggy?

I hope so.

She’s just running through
her memory banks.

Any luck, HELEN?

Searching personnel files...

Forsyth, Parker.

ORCA identification number

Has Dr. Hellegren caught them yet?

It’s only a matter of time now.

Mr. Forsyth!

It’s the Bates!

Stay in the group.

Hurry up, into the boat!
Come on, quick!

Into the boat.

It’s them.


He’s chasing the wrong boat.

Stop right there, Mr. Forsyth!

Hands off me.

What am I supposed
to have done?

Let’s start with sabotage,
shall we?

Plus I believe there’s
the matter of

an unauthorised transmitter
in your cabin.

Then there’s
false representation.

Criminal damage.

And I’m sure I’ll think
of a few more things

while you’re locked up
in the brig.

Take him away.

Let me go

You don’t understand!

I have to get a message out!


where’d Liselle go?

What do you think you’re
doing here?

Making sure you don’t get
inside your cabin.

And do you think a soppy
ittle thing like you

is going to stand in my way?

Yes, I do.

Because the only way
you’re getting past

is over my dead body.

And mine.

Makes three.

Still fancy your chances?

Forget it, Liselle.

You’re not calling anyone.

UBRI are on their own.

Boat 3 here,
having them on my screen.

Boat 5, me too.

Get in front of the boat.

Force them to stop.

You are just in time.

we must hurry.


Farewells now, quickly.


It really is goodbye.

Come here.

Safe journey, my darling.

Take care.

You have brought us so much joy.

You come back soon if you can.

What a bummer.

We could have had
so much fun together.

There is no more time.


I never really told
you this...

What I’m trying to say is…


I did not ask to go.

Well then stay.

We need you.

Hold it right there!

Cut your engines!

I repeat,

cut your engines!

I’m afraid the jig is up.

They’ve stopped, sir.

We can board them.

Yes! Good!

Well, Dr. Seth, you gave us
quite a run

for our money.

Now I will take charge of
your passengers.

I have been waiting for you
young ladies for a long time.

Now if you’ll accompany me.

Sure, but we don’t kiss
on the first date.

Where are the girls?


Where are they going?


Somewhere you will
never reach them.

Now, my dear sir,

there is nothing for you do to

but go home yourself.

It’s over.

Time to go?




She stayed!


I will miss my sister.

Mera wishes in her heart
to return home.

I know the day will come
when I will see her again.

We really thought you’d gone too.


Your people will live
in the seas.

Maybe one day they even
talk to Charley.

I must stay to finish
father’s work.

Mera will take hope
to our own people.

She will be where
she belongs.

I belong here.

My island,

the ocean,

and with you...



Go for it.
