  • Those are sea lions, they are natural predators. They could pounce at any moment.

  • You and I were friends!

[first lines]
Baby Dory: Hi, I'm Dory. I suffer from short-term memory loss.

[flashback of the first film, when the boat moves away and Dory meets Marlin]
Marlin: [first words of the first film] Has anybody seen a boat!? Please! A white boat! They took my son! [Dory swims towards him] My son! Help me, please!
Dory: [she and Marlin running towards each other] Look out! [they bumps in to each other; Marlin flies into a rock and lands on the ground] Oh, oh, sorry! Are you OK? There, there, it's all right. It'll be okay.
Marlin: He's gone. No, he's gone. He's gone. No, no, they took him away! I have to find the boat!
Dory: A boat? Hey, I've seen a boat!
Marlin: You have?
Dory: [132 minutes later text: Las Vegas Jackpot in the flashback] Uh-huh. This way! It went this way! Follow me!
Marlin: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much!?
Dory: No problem. I'll have to find my son.
Marlin: Hey! Wait!
Dory: Will you quit it?!
Marlin: What?
Dory: I’m trying to swim here. What, ocean ain’t big enough for you? You got a problem, buddy? Do you, do you, do you? You want a piece of me? Yeah, I’m scared now. What!
Marlin: Wait a minute...
Dory: Stop following me, okay?!
Marlin: What are talking about?! You’re showing me which way the boat went!
Dory: A boat? Hey, I’ve seen a boat. It passed by not too long ago. It went this way, it went this way. Follow me!
Marlin: Wait a minute, wait a minute! What is going on?! You already told me which way the boat was going!
Dory: I did? Oh, no.
Marlin: If this is some kind of practical joke, it’s not funny! And I know funny... I’m a clownfish!
Dory: No, it’s not. I know it’s not. I’m so sorry. See, I suffer from short-term memory loss.
Marlin: Short-term memory loss. (chuckles) I don’t believe this!
Dory: No, it’s true. I forget things almost instantly. It runs in my family. Or at least I think it does. [thinks] Where are they? [Long pauses] Can I help you?
Marlin: Something’s wrong with you, really. You’re wasting my time. I have to find my son. [Gasps]
Bruce: Hello.
Dory: Well, hi!?
Bruce: Name's Bruce. It's all right, I understand. Why trust a shark, right? [startles Marlin and Dory with his chomp and starts laughing] So, what's a couple of bites like you doing out so late, eh?
Marlin: Nothing. We're not doing anything. We're not even out.
Bruce: Great. Then how would you morsels like to come to a little get-together I'm having?
Dory: [in delight] You mean like a party?
Bruce: Yeah. Yeah, right. A party. What do you say?
Dory: I love parties. That like sounds fun.
Marlin: [nervously] You know parties are fun, and it’s tempting but can't because...
Bruce: [grabs Marlin and Dory with his fins] Oh, come on, I insist.
Marlin: [nervously] Okay. That's all that matters.
[Bruce guides the fish to a dark part of the ocean, swimming past a Naval Minefield.]
Dory: Hey look, balloons! It is a party!
Bruce: [laughs] Mind your distance, though. Those balloons can be a bit dodgy! You wouldn't want one of them to pop. [Bruce takes the two fish to a wrecked ship] Anchor! Chum! [Anchor and Chum, a Hammerhead and Mako shark, respectively, appear from the ship's entrance]
Anchor: There you are Bruce, finally.
Bruce: We got company.
Anchor: Well it's about time, mate.
Chum: We've already gone through all the snacks and I'm still starving!
Anchor: We almost had us a feeding frenzy...
Chum: Come on. Let's get this over with. [A bell rings. Marlin, shaking in fear, uncovers one of his eyes, to see that the sharks are having a TED Talk-like meetin']
Bruce: Right then. The meeting has officially come to order. Let us all say the pledge.
All: I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food.
Anchor: Except stinkin' dolphins.
Chum: Dolphins! Yeah, they think they're so cute! [mocks a dolphin] "Oh, look at me, I'm a flippin' little dolphin, let me flip for you! Ain't I something?" [Anchor laughs]
Bruce: Right, then. Today’s meeting is step five. Bring a Fish Friend. Now, do you all have your friends?
Anchor: Got mine. [shows a quaking little green fish]
Dory: Hey there!
Bruce: How about you, Chum?
Chum: Well, I seem to have misplaced my friend.
Bruce: That’s all right, Chum. I had a feeling this would be a difficult step, you can help yourself to one of my friends.
Chum: Thanks, mate. A little chum for Chum, eh?
Bruce: I’ll start the testimonies. Hello, my name is Bruce.
Both: Hello, Bruce.
Bruce: It has been 3 weeks since my last fish, on my honor, or may I be chopped up and made into soup.
Chum: You’re an inspiration to all of us.
Anchor: Amen.
Marlin: [grunts] Oops!
Bruce: Right, then. Who’s next?
Dory: Pick me! Pick me!
Bruce: Yes, the little Sheila down the front.
Dory: Whoo!
Bruce:: Come on up here.
Dory: Hi. I’m Dory.
Sharks: Hello, Dory.
Dory: And... Well, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten a fish.
Chum: I that's incredible.
Bruce: Good on you, mate.
Dory: I'm glad I got that off my chest.
Bruce: All right, Everyone else. How about you mate? What's your problem?
Marlin: Me. I don't… I don't have a problem.
Bruce: Oh, okay.
Sharks: Denial.
Marlin: Aah!
Bruce: Just start with your name.
Marlin: OK. Um, hello. My name is Marlin. I'm a clownfish.
Anchor: A clownfish? Really?
Bruce: Go on. Tell us a joke.
Chum: I love jokes.
Marlin: I actually do know one that’s pretty good. There was this mollusk, and he walks up to this sea cucumbers. Normally, they don't talk, sea cucumbers, but in a joke everyone talks. So, the sea mollusk says to the cucumber… [slight pauses; Marlin spots the mask. A brief flashback shows the divers taking Nemo]
Nemo: Daddy!
Marlin: Nemo!
Chum: Nemo! Haha! Nemo… I don't get it.
Bruce: For a clownfish, he's not that funny.
Marlin: No, no, no, he's my son. He was taken by these divers.
Dory: Oh, you poor fish...
Chum: Humans! Think they own everything.
Anchor: Probably American!
Bruce: Now, there is a father looking for his little boy.
Marlin: Ugh! What do these markings mean?! (Oh, no!)
Bruce: (sobs) I never knew my father! Ah! Aaaaaaaah!
Anchor: Come here, group hug.
Chum: We're all mates here, mate.
Marlin: I can't read human.
Dory: Well, then we got to find a fish that can read this. Hey, look, sharks.
Marlin: No, no, no, Dory!
Dory: Guys, guys.
Marlin: No, Dory.
Dory: Hey, that's mine. Give it to me.
Marlin: Dory!
Dory: Get me! Ow!
Marlin: Oh, I'm sorry. Are you okay?
Dory: Ow, ow, ow!
Marlin: I'm so sorry.
Dory: You really clocked me there. Am I bleeding?! [a wisp of bloody floats from Dory's nose]
Marlin: Ohh!
Dory: Ow. Ow. Ow.
Bruce: Dory, are you okay… [tiny pauses; smells a wisp of bloody] Oh! [his eyes turns completely black] That's good.
Chum and Anchor: (gasp) Intervention!
Bruce: Just a bite!
Anchor: You hold it together, mate!
Chum: Remember, Bruce, [bruce grunts] fish are friends, not food!
Bruce: Food!
Marlin: Dory, look out!
Bruce: I’m having fish tonight!
Chum: Remember the steps, mate!
Anchor: Let's range!
Bruce: Just 1 bite! Good day. Grr!
Marlin: There's no way out! There's got to be a way to escape.
[Bruce is ramming the door, trying to break through it]
Dory: Who is it?
Marlin: Dory, help me find a way out! 2X
Dory: Sorry, you'll have to come back later. We're trying to escape.
Marlin: There's got to be a way out!
Dory: Look, here's something! ESCAPE! I wonder what that means, it's funny. It's spelled just like the word 'escape'...
Marlin: Let's go! [Grabs Dory by the flipper to escape the sub]
Bruce: Here's Bruceeeeyy!!
Marlin: Wait a minute. Can you read?!
Dory: I can read? That's right. I can read.
Marlin: Well then, here, read this now!
Dory and Marlin: AAAAAAGGGHH!!!!!!!!!
Anchor: He really doesn't mean it. He never even knew his father.
Chum: Don’t fall off the wagon!
Marlin: Oh, no. It’s blocked!
Anchor: No, Bruce! Focus!
Chum: Sorry about Bruce, mate.
Anchor: He’s really a nice guy.
Marlin: I need to get that mask.
Dory: You want that mask? OK.
Marlin: No, no, no, no! Quick. Grab the mask! Grab it!
Anchor: Oh, no.
Chum: Bruce?
Bruce: What? (Gasps) Swim away! Swim away!
Dory: Oh. Is the party over? [KaBoom!]
Pelican 2: Nice.
Nemo: Dad? Daddy?
P. Sherman: Barbara? Prep for his anterior crown, would you, please? And I’m going to need a few cotton rolls.
Barbara: OK.
P. Sherman: Hello, little fella. (Nemo screams and hides in a barrel) [chuckles] Beauty, isn’t he? I found that guy strugglin' for life out on the reef and I saved him. So, has that Novocaine kicked in yet?
Bubbles: Bubbles! [mutters] My bubbles.
Peach: He likes bubbles.
Nemo: No! [breathing healiy]
Jacques: Bonjour.
Bloat: Slow down, little fella. There’s nothing to worry about.
Deb: He’s scared to death.
Nemo: I want a go home. Do you know where my dad is?
Peach: Honey, your dad’s probably back at the pet store.
Nemo: Pet store?
Bloat: Yeah. Like I’m from Bob’s Fish Mart.
Gurgle: Pet Palace.
Bubbles: Fish-O-Rama.
Deb: Mail order.
Peach: Ebay.
Gurgle: So, which one is it?
Nemo: I’m from the ocean.
Gurgle: Ah, the ocean. The ocean! Aagghh! He hasn’t been decontaminated yet. Jacques! Clean him!
Jacques: Oui?
Gurgle: Ocean!
Jacques: La mer. Bon. Voila. He is clean.
Bubbles: Wow. The big blue. What’s it like?
Nemo: Big and blue?
Bubbles: I knew it.
Deb: Of if it's not around, you can always talk to my sister Flo. Hi, how are you? Don't listen anything my sister says she's nuts.
Peach: [muffled with her face on the glass] We've got a live 1!
Bloat: Can't hear you, Peach.
Peach: [removes her face from the glass] I said we got a live 1!
Bloat: Oh, boy, oh, boy, oh, boy.
Deb: What do we got?
Peach: Root canal, and by the looks of those X-rays, it's not going to be pretty.
Patient: [as the drill is inserted in his mouth] AAAAAAGGGGHHH!!!
Bloat: Rubber Dan and clamp installed.
Peach: Yep.
Gurgle: What did he use to open?
Peach: Gator-Glidden drill. He seems to be favoring that 1 lately.
Deb: I can't see, Flo.
Patient: Um, we are getting ready to roll... Aaah! AAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Peach: Now he's doing the Schilder technique.
Bloat: He’s using a Hedstrom file.
Gurgle: [to Bloat] That’s not a Hedstrom file, that’s a K-Flex.
Bloat: It’s got a teardrop cross-section. Clearly, a Hedstrom.
Gurgle: No, no, K-Flex.
Bloat: Hedstorm!
Gurgle: K-Flex!
Bloat: Hedstrom!! [Inflates] Oomp. There I go. A little help, over here.
Deb: I'll go deflate him.
Philip Sherman: All right. Go ahead and rinse.
Gurgle: Oh, the human mouth is a disgusting place. [Nigel flies in the scene and thuds into the window, and opens it.]
Peach: Hey, Nigel.
Nigel: What did I miss? Am I late?
Peach: Root canal, it's a doozy.
Nigel: Root canal, huh? What did he use to open?
Peach: Gator-Glidden drill.
Nigel: He seems to be favoring that one. Hope he doesn't get surplus sealer at the portal terminus. [notices Nemo] Hello. Who's this?
Deb: New guy. [chuckles]
Gurgle: The dentist took him off the reef.
Nigel: An outie. From my neck of the woods, eh? Sorry if I ever took a snap at you. Fish gotta swim, (perhaps) birds gotta eat.
Philip Sherman: Hey! [Nigel gasps] No, no, no, no! They're not your fish. They're my fish. (That's my Nemo! It's mine!) Come on, go. Go on, shoo. Shoo! [Nigel flies out of the scene, Philip closes the window.] Aw, the picture broke. This here's Darla. He's my niece. She's going to be 8 this week. [shows it to Nemo] Hey, little fella. Say hello to your new mummy. She's gonna be here Friday to pick you up. You're her present. Oh. [shushes] It's our little secret. Well, Mr. Tucker, while that sets up, I'm going to go see a man about a wallaby. I'll be right back. [leaves]
Bloat: Uh-Oh, Darla.
Nemo: What? What's wrong with her?
Gurgle: She wouldn't stop shaking the bag.
Bubbles: Poor Chuckles.
Deb: He was her present last year.
Bloat: Hitched a ride on the porcelain express.
Peach: She's a fish killer.
Nemo: I can't go with that girl! I have to get back to my dad! Aah! Daddy, help me!
Deb: Oh, he's stuck.
Gill: Nobody touch him. Nobody touch him.
Nemo: Can you help me?
Gill: No. You got yourself in there. You can get yourself out.
Deb: Ah, Gill...
Gill: I just want to see if he can do it, okay? Calm down. Now alternate between wiggling your fins and your tail.
Nemo: I can't! I have a bad fin!
Gill: Never stopped me. Just think about what you need to do.
Bloat: Come on.
Gill: Perfect.
Deb: Good squirming. Ha ha ha!
Peach: Wow. From the ocean just like you Gill.
Gill: Yeah.
Peach: [chuckles] I’ve seen that look before. What are you thinking about?
Gill: I’m thinking, tonight, we give the kid a proper reception.
Bloat: So kid, you got a name or what?
Nemo: Nemo. I’m Nemo.
Marlin: Nemo. Nemo.
Dory: Are you gonna eat that? [snores] Careful with that hammer.
Marlin: No, no! What does it say? Dory!
Dory: Sea monkey has my money…
Marlin: Wake up! Get up! Come on! Get up! Come on!
Dory': Yes, I’m a natural blue…
Marlin: Get up! Dory!
Dory: Look out! Sharks eat fish! [mumbles]
[Marlin and Dory screams]
Dory: [coughing] Wow. Dusty.
Marlin: The mask! Where’s the mask? No! Not the mask! Get it! Get the mask! Get it! [panting]
Dory: [humming] Whoo-hoo! Just keeps going on, doesn’t it? Echo! Echo! Hey, what are you doing?
Marlin: It’s gone. I’ve lost the mask.
Dory: What, did you drop it?
Marlin: You dropped it! That was my only chance of finding my son, and now it’s gone. [Normal pauses]
Dory: Hey, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down, you know what you gotta do?
Marlin: I don’t want to know what I gotta do.
Dory: [singing] Just keep swimming. What do we do? We swim.
Marlin: Dory, no singing. Dory. Dory?
Dory: [continues] I love to swim! When you want to swim...
Marlin: Dory. Dory? See, I’m going to get stuck now with that song now it’s in my head!
Dory: Sorry.

MARLIN: Dory, do you see anything?

DORY: Something’s got me!

MARLIN: That was me. I’m sorry.

DORY: Who's that?

MARLIN: Who could it be? It’s me.

DORY: Are... are you my conscience?

MARLIN: Yeah. I’m your conscience. We haven’t spoken for a while. How are you?

DORY: Can’t complain.

MARLIN: Good. Now, Dory. I want you to tell you see anything?

DORY: I see... I see a light.

MARLIN: A light?

DORY: Yeah. Over there. Hey, conscience. Am I dead?

MARLIN: No, I see it too. What is it?

DORY: It’s so pretty.

MARLIN: Hi, I’m feeling happy. Which is a big deal for me.

DORY: I want to touch it. Oh!

MARLIN: Hey, come back. Come on back here.

DORY: [singing] I’m gonna get you. I’m gonna get you. I’m gonna swim with you.

MARLIN: I’m gonna get you. I’m gonna be your best friend good feelings gone.

(the light reveals that it's actually from an anglerfish. Marlin and Dory screams and swam away from it, the anglerfish is still chasing them)

MARLIN: I can’t see! I don’t know where I’m going! The mask!

DORY: What mask? OK, I can’t see a thing.

MARLIN: Oh, gee!

DORY: Hey, look! A mask!

MARLIN: Read it!

(the anglerfish chases Marlin)

DORY: I’m sorry, but if you could just bring it a little closer, I kind of need the light. That’s great, keep it right there.

MARLIN: Just read it!

DORY: OK, OK. Mr. Bossy. P’. OK, ‘P. Sher... P. Shirley? P not Shirley. The 1st line’s ‘P. Sherman’!

MARLIN: P. Sherman doesn’t make any sense!

DORY: OK. 2nd line. ‘42’.

MARLIN: Don’t eat me!

(the anglerfish struggles with Marlin, then accidentally eats him. The light goes out.]

DORY: Light, please. The 2nd line’s ‘42 Wallaby Way’!

MARLIN: That’s great! Speed read! Take a guess! No pressure! No problem! There’s a lot of pressure! Pressure! Take a guess now with pressure!

DORY: ‘Sydney’. It’s ‘Sydney’!


DORY: Aah!

MARLIN: [pants] I’m dead, I’m dead, I’m dead, I’m dead, I’m dead, I died, I’m dead. Whoo-hoo! [singing] We did it! Oh, yeah! No eating here tonight, whoo!

BOTH: Eating here tonight!


DORY: No, eating here tonight. You on a diet.

MARLIN: Dory! What did the mask say?

DORY: "P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney". [gasps] I remember what it said! I usually forget things, but I remembered it this time!

MARLIN: Wait! Where is that?

DORY: I don’t know. But who cares? I remembered!

DORY: P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. I remembered it again!

JACQUES: Psst. [whispers] Nemo. Nemo.

NEMO: Huh?

JACQUES: Suivez-moi. Follow me.

Gill: State your name.
Nemo: Nemo?
Gill: Brother Bloat, proceed.
Bloat: Nemo, newcomer of orange and white, you have been called forth to the top of Mount Wannahockaloogie to join with us, in the fraternal bonds... of tankhood.
Nemo: Huh?
Peach: We want you in our club, kid.
Nemo: Really?
Bloat: If you are able to swim through, the Ring of Fire! [nothing happens] Turn on the Ring of Fire. The Ring of Fire! [Jacques suddenly comes to attention]
Jacques: Oh!
Bloat: You said you could do it! [bubbles explode out of the top of Wannahockaloogie Mountain] THE RING OF FIRE!!!!

BUBBLES: Bubbles! Bubbles! Let me...

PEACH: Isn’t there another way? He’s just a boy!

GILL: From this moment on, you will now be known as Sharkbait.

ALL: Sharkbait! Ooh-ha-ha!

GILL: Welcome, brother Sharkbait!

ALL: Sharkbait!

GILL: Enough with the Sharkbait.

GURGLE: Sharkbait!

GILL: OK, Sharkbait’s one of us now, agreed?

ALL: Agreed!

GILL We can’t send him off to his death. Darla’s coming in 5 days, so what are we gonna do? I’ll tell you what we’re gonna do: we’re gonna get him outta here. We’re gonna help him escape.

NEMO: Escape? Really?

GILL: We’re all gonna escape!?

GURGLE: Gill, please, not another one of your escape plans.

DEB: Sorry, but they, they just, they never work.

BLOAT: Yeah. Why should this be any different?

GILL: 'Cause we’ve got him.


GILL: You see that filter?

NEMO: Yeah?

GILL: You’re the only one who can get in and out of that thing. What we need you to do is take a pebble inside and jam the gears. You do that and this tank’s gonna get filthier and filthier by the minute. Pretty soon, the dentist’ll have to clean the tank himself. And when he does, he’ll take us out of the tank, put us in the individual baggies, then we roll ourselves down the counter, out of the window, off the awning, into the bushes, across the street and into the harbor! (Nemo: Wow!) It’s foolproof! Who’s with me?



DEB: I...


GURGLE: I think your nuts. No offense kid, but, you’re not the best swimmer.

GILL: He’s fine, he can do this. So Sharkbait, what do you think?

NEMO: Let’s do it.

DORY: I’m goin' to P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. Where are you going? I’m going to P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. If you’re asking where I’m going. I’ll tell you that’s where I’m going. It’s P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. Where? I’m sorry, I didn’t hear you. P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way…

MARLIN: Excuse me. Hi. Do you know how to get to hello? Wait! Can you tell me... Hey! Hold it! Wait a minute! I’m trying to talk to you. OK, fellas, come back here. Please, one quick question. I need to and they’re gone again. [sighing]

DORY: P. Sherman 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney. Why do I have to tell you over and over again? I’ll tell you again. I don’t get tired of it...

MARLIN: OK, all right. Here’s the thing. You know, I just, think it’s best if I just, if I just, carry on from here by myself.


MARLIN: You know, alone. Without, well, I mean, not without you. I mean, it’s just that I don’t want you, with me.

DORY: Huh?

MARLIN: I don’t want a hurt your feelings..

DORY: You want me to leave?

MARLIN: Well, I mean not. Yes. Yeah. It’s just that you know I just can’t afford anymore delays and you’re one of those fish that cause delays. And sometimes it’s a good thing. There’s a whole group of fish. They’re delay fish.

DORY: You mean... [whimpers] You mean, you don’t like me? [start crying]

MARLIN: No, of course I like you. It’s because I like you I don’t want a be with you. It’s a complicated emotion. Don’t cry. I like you.

MOONFISH LEADER: Hey, you! Lady, is this guy bothering you?

DORY: I don’t remember. Were you?

MARLIN: No. We’re just, we’re... hey, do you guys know how I can get to...

MOONFISH: Look, pal. We’re talking to the lady, not you. Hey, you like impressions?

DORY: [sniffles] Mm-Hmm?

MOONFISH: OK. Just like in rehearsals, gentlemen. So, what are we? Take a guess.

DORY: I’ve seen one of those.

MOONFISH: I’m a fish with a nose like a sword.

DORY: Wait, wait...

MARLIN: It’s a swordfish.

MOONFISH: Hey, clown boy! Let the lady guess. Where’s the butter?

DORY: It’s on the tip of my tongue.

MARLIN: [coughs] Lobster. What?

MOONFISH: Saw that. Lots of legs, lives in the ocean.

DORY: Clam!

MOONFISH: Close enough. [singing] It’s a whale of a tale, I’ll tell you lad, a whale of a tale.

DORY: They’re good.

MARLIN: Will somebody please give me directions?

MOONFISH: [mockingly] Will somebody please give me directions?

DORY: [laughing]

MARLIN: I’m serious.

MOONFISH: Blah-blah-blah! Me-me-blah! Blah-blah-blah-blah-me-me-me!

MARLIN: Thank you.

DORY: Oh, dear. Hey, come back! What’s the matter?

MARLIN: What’s the matter? While they’re doing their silly little impressions, I am miles from home, with a fish that can’t even remember her own name.

DORY: Boy, bet that’s frustrating.

MARLIN: Meanwhile my son is out there.

DORY: You’re son Chico? Right. Got it.


Dory: Right, honey.

Marlin: But it doesn’t matter, ‘cause no fish in this entire ocean is gonna help me.

DORY: Well, I’m helping you. Wait right here. Hey, guys.

MOONFISH: What, is he bothering you again?

DORY: No, he’s a good guy. Go easy on him, he’s lost his son, Fabio. Any of you heard of P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney?

MOONFISH: Sydney? Sure. Why, Ted here’s got relatives in Sydney. Don’t you, Ted?

TED: Sure do.

DORY: They know Sydney! You wouldn’t know how to get there, would you?

MOONFISH: What you wanna do is follow the EAC, that’s the East Australian Current. Big current, can’t miss it, it’s in..that direction. And then you gotta follow that for about, I don’t know, what do you guys think? About three leagues? And that little baby’s gonna put you right past Sydney.

ALL: Tah-dah!

MARLIN: Great! That’s great! Dory, you did it!

DORY: Oh, please. I’m just your little helper. Helping along, that’s me.

MARLIN: Well, listen fellas, thank you.

MOONFISH: Don’t mention it. And, loosen up. OK, buddy?

DORY: You guys. You really nailed him. Bye.

MOONFISH: Ma’am, one more thing.

DORY: Yes.

MOONFISH: When you come to this trench, swim through it, not over it.

DORY Trench, through it, not over it. I’ll remember. Hey, wait up, partner. Hold on. Wait! Wait-wait! I got, I gotta tell you something. Whoa. Nice trench. Hello! [echoing] OK, let’s go.

MARLIN: Bad trench. Come on, we’re gonna swim over this trench..

DORY: Partner. Little red flag going up. Something telling me we should swim through it, not over it.

MARLIN: Are you even looking at this thing? It’s got death written all over it.

DORY: I’m sorry, but I really, think we should swim through.

MARLIN: And I’m really done talking about this. Over we go.

DORY: Come on, trust me on this.

MARLIN: Trust you?

DORY: Yes, trust. It’s what friends do.

MARLIN: Look! Something shiny!

DORY: Where?

MARLIN: It just swam over the Come on, we’ll follow it.

DORY: OK. Boy, sure is clear up here.

MARLIN: Exactly. And look at that, there’s the current. We should be there in no time.

DORY: Hey, little guy.

MARLIN: You wanted to go through the trench.

DORY: I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy. Come here, little Squishy. [Baby talking] Ow.

MARLIN: Dory! That’s a jellyfish!

DORY: Bad Squishy, BAD squishy!

MARLIN: Shoo! Shoo, shoo! Get away! Come here, let me see.

DORY: Don’t touch it, don't touch it!

MARLIN: I’m not gonna touch it. I just want a look.

DORY: Hey! How come it didn't sting you?!

MARLIN: It did. It’s just that, hold still. I live in this anemone and I’m used to these kind of stings. Come here. It doesn’t look bad, you’re gonna be fine. But now we know, don’t we? That we don’t want a touch these again. Let’s be thankful this time it was just a little one. Don’t move! This is bad, Dory.

DORY: Hey, watch this! Boing! Boing!

MARLIN: (gasps) Dory!

DORY: You can’t catch me!

MARLIN: Dory! Don’t bounce on the tops! They will not sting you! The tops don’t sting you, that’s it!

DORY: Two in a row, beat that.

MARLIN: Dory! All right, listen to me. I have an idea, a game.

DORY: A game?

MARLIN: A game. Yes.

DORY: I love games! Pick me!

MARLIN: All right, here’s the game. Whoever can hop the fastest out of these jellyfish, wins.


MARLIN: Rules! You can’t touch the tentacles, only the tops.

DORY: Something about tentacles, got it. On your mark, get set, go!

MARLIN: Wait! Wait! Not something about them, it’s all about them! Wait! Dory!

DORY: Gotta go faster if you want a win!


DORY Boing! Boing!

MARLIN: Wait a minute Dory!

DORY: Whee!

MARLIN: So, we’re cheatin' death now. That’s what we’re doing. We’re having fun at the same time. I can do this, just be careful.

DORY: Careful I don’t make you cry when I win!

MARLIN: I don’t think so!

DORY: Give it up, old man. You can’t fight evolution, I was built for speed.

MARLIN: The question is, Dory, are you hungry?

DORY: Hungry?

MARLIN: Yeah. Cause you’re about to eat my bubbles! Duck to the left! Right there! The clownfish is the winner! We did it! We’re gonna... Dory? Oh, no. Dory! Dory! Dory! Dory!

DORY: [weakly] Am I disqualified?

MARLIN: No, you’re doing fine! You’re, you’re actually winning! But you gotta stay awake. Where does P. Sherman live?

DORY: P. Sherman... Wallaby Way... Sydney…

MARLIN: That’s it! Stay awake! Stay awake! Stay awake! Stay... awake!

DORY: P. Sherman...

MARLIN: [weakly] Awake...

DORY: 42 Wallaby Way... Sydney.

MARLIN: Awake... wake up... Nemo…

Gill: You miss your Dad, don’t you, Sharkbait?

Nemo: Yeah.

Gill: Well, you’re lucky to have someone out there who’s looking for you.

Nemo: He’s not looking for me. He’s scared of the ocean.

GILL: Peach, any movement?

PEACH: He’s had at least four cups of coffee, it’s gotta be soon.

GILL: Keep on him. My first escape, landed on dental tools. I was aimin’ for the toilet.

NEMO: Toilet?

GILL: All drains lead to the ocean, kid.

NEMO: Wow. How many times have you tried to get out?

GILL: I’ve lost count. Fish aren’t meant to be in a box, kid. It does things to ‘ya.

BUBBLES: [giggles] Bubbles!

PEACH: Potty break! He just grabbed the Reader’s Digest! We have 4.2 minutes.

GILL: That’s your cue, Sharkbait.

BLOAT: You can do it, kid.

GILL: You gotta be quick. Once you get in, you swim down to the bottom of the chamber and I’ll talk you through the rest.


GILL Go on, it’ll be a piece of kelp.

NEMO: [takes a deep breaths]

GILL: Nicely done! Can you hear me?

NEMO: Yeah.

GILL: Here comes the pebble. Now, do you see a small openin'?

NEMO: Uh-huh.

GILL: OK, inside it you’ll see a rotating fan. Very carefully, wedge that pebble into the fan to stop it turning. Careful, Sharkbait.

NEMO: I can’t do it!

PEACH: Gill, this isn’t a good idea.

GILL: He’ll be fine. Try again.


GILL: That’s it, Sharkbait. Nice and steady.

NEMO: I got it! I got it!

BLOAT: He did it!

GILL: That’s great, kid! Now, swim up the tube and out.

NEMO: Oh, no! Gill!

GILL: Sharkbait!

BLOAT: Oh, my gosh!

GILL: Get him out of there!

BUBBLES: Help him!

GURGLE: What do we do!? What do we do!?

PEACH: Oh, no!

GILL: Stay calm, kid! Just don’t panic!

NEMO: Help me!

GILL: Sharkbait! Grab hold of this!

NEMO: No! No!

GILL: Feed me more!

GURGLE: That’s it!

GILL: Come on, Sharkbait! Grab it!

NEMO: [grunts] I got it!

GILL: Pull!

[all panting]

PEACH: Gill, don’t make him go back in there.

GILL: No. We’re done.

NEMO: [whimpering]

CRUSH: Dude. Focus, dude. Dude. He lives! Hey, dude!

MARLIN: [groaning] What happened?

CRUSH: Oh, saw the whole thing, dude. First you were like, ‘whoa’! And then we were all like, ‘whoa’! And then you were like, ‘whoa’.

MARLIN: What are you talking about?

CRUSH: You, mini-man. Taking on the jellies. You got serious thrill issues, dude. Awesome.

MARLIN: Oh, my stomach. [moans]

CRUSH: Oh, man. No hurling on the shell, dude, just waxed it.

MARLIN: So, Mr. Turtle…

CRUSH: Dude. Mr. Turtle is my father. Name’s Crush.

MARLIN: Crush? Really? OK, Crush, listen I need to get to the East Australian Current. EAC?

CRUSH: [chuckles] Dude, you’re riding it, dude! Check it out! OK, grab shell, dude!

MARLIN: Grab what. [screams]

CRUSH: Righteous! Righteous! Yeah!


CRUSH: So, what brings you on this fine day to the EAC?

MARLIN: Well, Dory and I need to get to Sydney. [gasps] Dory! Is she all right!?

CRUSH: Little Blue. She is sub-level, dude.

MARLIN: Dory, Dory! Dory! Oh, Dory. I’m so sorry. This is all my fault.

DORY: 29, 30! Ready or not, here I come! There you are! Catch me if you can! [laughing]


MARLIN: Oh, my goodness!

CRUSH: Kill the motor, dude. Let us see what Squirt does flying solo.

SQUIRT: Whoa! That was so cool! Hey Dad, did you see that? Did you see me? Did you see what I did?

CRUSH: You so totally rock, Squirt! So give me some fin, noggin.

BOTH: Dude!

CRUSH: Intro. Jellyman, Offspring. Offspring, Jellyman.

SQUIRT: Jellies? Sweet.

CRUSH: Totally.

MARLIN: Well, apparently, I must’ve done something you all likes dude.

SQUIRT: You rock, dude.


CRUSH: Curl away, my son. It’s awesome, Jellyman. Little dudes are just eggs, leave ‘em on the beach to hatch, then coo-coo-ca-choo, they find their way back to the big ‘ol blue.

MARLIN All by themselves?

CRUSH: Yeah.

MARLIN: But, dude . How do you know when they’re ready?

CRUSH: Well, you never really know. But when they’ll know, you’ll know, you know?


DORY: Hey! Look, everybody!

SQUIRT: I know that dude. It’s the Jelly-man.

DORY: Well, go on, jump on him.

TURTLE KIDS: Turtle pile!

MARLIN: Wait, kids.

TURTLE KID 1: Are you funny?

TURTLE KID 2: Where’s your shell?

MARLIN: Hold on, I need to breath...

TURTLE KID 3: Are you running away?

TURTLE KID 4: Did you really cross the jellyfish forest?

TURTLE KID 5: Did they sting you?

MARLIN: 1 at a time!

TURTLE KID 6: Mr. Fish, did you die?

DORY: Sorry. I was a little vague on the details.

SQUIRT: So where are you going?

MARLIN: Well, you see my son was taken. My son was taken away from me.

ALL: [kids gasping]

DORY: No way.

SQUIRT: What happened?

MARLIN: No, kids. I don’t want a talk about it.

KIDS: Come on. Please?

SQUIRT: Please?

MARLIN: Well, OK. I live on this reef, a long long way from here.

DORY: Oh, boy. This is gonna be good, I can tell.

MARLIN: And my son, Nemo, see he was mad at me. Maybe he wouldn’t have done it if I hadn’t been so tough on him, I don’t know. Anyway, he swam out in the open water to this boat and when he was out there, these divers appeared and I tried to stop them but the boat was too fast. So we swam out in the ocean to follow them…

TURTLE KID: They couldn’t stop them. And then Nemo’s dad, he swims out to the ocean and they bump into..

SMALL FISH: ...3 ferocious sharks! He scares away the sharks by blowin' them up!

BIG FISH: Golly, that’s amazin'!

SMALL FISH: And then dives thousands of...

LOBSTER: ...feet straight down into the dark. It’s like wicked dark down there, you can‘t see a thing. How’s it going, Bob? And the only thing that they can see down there..

SWORDFISH: the light from this big horrible creature with razor sharp teeth. Nice parry, old man. And then he has to blast his way…

DOLPHIN: So, these two little fish have been... Searching the ocean for days. On the East Australian Current.

FEMALE BIRD: Which means that he may be on his way here right now. That should put them in Sydney..

MALE BIRD 1: ...Harbor in a matter of days. I mean, it sounds like this guy’s gonna stop at..

MALE BIRD 2: ...nothing until he finds his son. I sure hope he makes it.

MALE BIRD 3: That’s 1 dedicated father if you ask me.

SEAGULLS: Mine! Mine! Mine!

NIGEL: Would you just shut up! You’re rats with wings!

PELICAN 2: ..bloke’s been looking for his boy Nemo.

NIGEL: Nemo?

PELICAN 2: He was taken off the reef by divers and this..

NIGEL: There, take it! You happy!

GULLS: Mine! Mine! Mine! Mine!

NIGEL: Say that again! You said something about Nemo. What was it?

GULLS Mine! Mine! Mine!

CRAB: [growls] [karate yells]

GULL: Mine!

PELICAN: Last I heard, he’s heading towards the harbor.

NIGEL: Brilliant!

NEMO: [sighs]

DEB: Is he doing OK?

GURGLE: I don’t know, but whatever you do, don’t mention D-A-R..

NEMO: It’s OK, I know who you’re talking about. Gill? Gill?

GILL: Hey, Sharkbait.

NEMO: I’m sorry I couldn’t stop the...

GILL: No, I’m the one who should be sorry. I was so ready to get out, so ready to taste that ocean. I was willing to put you in harm’s way to get there. Nothing should be worth that. I’m sorry I couldn’t get you back to your father, kid.

NIGEL: Alright! Hey, hey! D'oh!

Philip Sherman: What the?!?!


P. Sherman: Well, that’s 1 way to pull a tooth. [laughs] Darn kids. Well, good thing I pulled the right one, prime minister?

NIGEL: Psst!

PEACH: Nigel. You just missed an extraction.

NIGEL: Has he loosened the periodontal ligament yet.. What I’m talking about!? Nemo! Where’s Nemo? I gotta speak with him.

NEMO: What? What is it?

NIGEL: Your dad’s been fighting the entire ocean looking for you.

NEMO: My father? Really?

GILL: Really?

NIGEL: Oh, yeah. He’s travelled hundreds of miles. He’s been battling sharks and jellyfish and all sorts of...

NEMO: Sharks? That can’t be him.

NIGEL: Are you sure? What was his name? Some sort of sportfish or something: tuna, uh, trout...

NEMO: Marlin?

NIGEL: That’s it! The little clownfish from the reef.

NEMO: It’s my dad! He took on a shark!

NIGEL: I heard he took on 3.

ALL: 3!?

GILL: Three sharks?

BLOAT: That’s got it be 4,800 teeth!

NIGEL: You see, kid, after you were taken by diver Dan over there, your dad followed the boat you were on like a maniac.

NEMO: Really?

NIGEL: He’s swimming and he’s swimming and he’s giving it all he’s got and then 3 gigantic sharks capture him and he blows them up! And then dives thousands of feet and gets chased by a monster with huge teeth! He ties this demon to a rock and what does he get for a reward? He gets to battle an entire jellyfish forest! And now he’s riding with a bunch of sea turtles on the East Australian Current and the word is he’s headed this way right now, to Sydney!


DEB: Oh, what a good daddy!

GILL: He was looking for you after all, Sharkbait.

GURGLE: He’s swimming to the filter!

GILL: Sharkbait!

BLOAT: Not again!

GILL: Sharkbait!

DEB: No!

GURGLE: You’ve got your whole life ahead of you!

BLOAT: Oh, no!

GILL: We’ll help you, kid!

BLOAT: Gotta get him out!

DEB: Give me that thing!

GURGLE & BLOAT: Hang on, Nemo!

DEB: Get him out of there!

GURGLE: Come on, kid! Grab the end!

[jam gears]

DEB: Sharkbait!

BLOAT: Sharkbait! Are you OK?


GILL: Can you hear me, Sharkbait? Nemo! Can you hear me?!

[Nemo appears]

NEMO: Yeah, I can hear you.

[Everyone turned around and saw Nemo was okay.]

GILL: Sharkbait, you did it!

GURGLE: Sharkbait, you’re covered with germs! Aah!

GILL: That took guts, kid. All right, gang. We have less than 48 hours before Darla gets here. This tank’ll get plenty dirty in that time but we have to help it along any way we can. Jacques!


GILL: No cleaning.

JACQUES: I shall resist.

GILL: Everybody else, be as gross as possible. Think dirty thoughts. We’re gonna make this tank so filthy, the dentist’ll have to clean it. Good work.

[Nemo chuckles]

CRUSH: All right, we’re here, dudes! Get ready! Your exit’s coming up, man!

MARLIN: Where!? I don’t see it!

DORY: Right there! I see it! I see it!

MARLIN: You mean the swirling vortex of terror!?

CRUSH: That’s it, dude!

MARLIN: Of course it is.

CRUSH: OK, first: find your exit buddy! Do you have your exit buddy?

DORY: Yes!

CRUSH: OK, Squirt here will now give you a rundown of proper exiting technique!

SQUIRT: Good afternoon, we’re gonna have a great jump today! OK, crank a hard cutback as you hit the wall! There’s a screaming bottom turn, so watch out! Remember: rip it, roll it and punch it!

MARLIN: It’s like he’s trying to speak to me, I know it! You know, you’re really cute! But I don’t know what you’re saying! Say the first thing again!

CRUSH: OK, Jellyman! Go, go, go!

DORY: Whoo!

MARLIN: That was fun! I actually enjoyed that!

DORY: Hey, look! Turtles!

CRUSH: Most excellent! Now, turn your fishy tails ‘round and swim straight on through to Sydney! No worries, man!

MARLIN: No worries! Thank you, dude Crush!

KIDS: Bye! Bye, Jellyman!

CRUSH: You tell your little dude I said ‘hi’, OK?

SQUIRT: See you later, dudes!

DORY: Bye, everyone!

MARLIN: Nemo, would’ve loved this. Crush, I forgot! How old are you?

CRUSH: 150, dude! And still young! Rock on!

MARLIN: 150. 150, I gotta remember that.

DORY: Whoa. We going in there?


DORY: P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney?

MARLIN: Yep. We’re gonna just swim straight.

DORY: [singing] Just keep swimming, just keep swimming. [hums]

MARLIN: Dory? Boy, this is taking a while.

DORY: How about we play a game?


DORY: OK I’m thinking of something, orange. And it’s small...

MARLIN: It’s me.

DORY: Right. OK, orange, and small...

MARLIN: It’s me.

DORY: All righty, Mr. Smarty Pants. Orange and small, and white stripes...

MARLIN: Me. And the next one’s just a guess: me.

DORY: OK, that’s just scary.

MARLIN: Wait, I have definitely seen this floating speck before. That means we’ve passed it before and that means we’re going in circles and that means we’re not going straight! We gotta get to the surface, come on! Let’s figure it out up there. Let’s go! Follow me! What?

DORY: Hey! Relax. Take a deep breath. [both inhaling and exhaling] Now, let’s ask somebody for directions.

MARLIN: Fine. Who do you wanna ask, the speck? There’s nobody here!

DORY: Well, there has to be someone. It’s the ocean, silly, we’re not the only two in here. Let’s see…OK, no one there. Nope. Nada. There’s somebody. Hey! Excuse me.

MARLIN: Dory! OK, now it’s my turn. I’m thinking of something dark and mysterious. It’s a fish we don’t know. And if we ask it directions, it could ingest us and spit out our bones!

DORY: What is it with men and asking for directions?

MARLIN: Look, I don’t wanna play the gender card right now. You wanna play a card? Let’s play the ‘Let’s Not Die’ card.

DORY: You want a get outta here, don’t you?

MARLIN: Of course, I do. But, Dory you don't fully understand. [sighs] All right.

DORY: Well then, how are we gonna do that unless we give it a shot and hope for the best? Come on, trust me on this. Excuse me! Little fella? Hello. Don’t be rude, say ‘hi’.

MARLIN: Hello.

DORY: His son Bingo..


DORY: .. was taken to,

MARLIN: Sydney.

DORY: Sydney. Yes. And it’s really, important that we get there as fast as we can. So can you help us out? Come on, little fella. Come on.

MARLIN: Dory, I’m a little fella. I don’t think that’s a little fella.

DORY: Oh, a big fella. Big... A whale... okay, Maybe he only speaks whale. [imitating the sound a whale makes] MwOOooo! WwwwEEEE... nEEeeeedd tOOooo FINNND hiIIiiss SONNNNN...!

MARLIN: Dory? What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing?! Are you sure you speak whale?

DORY: CaaaAAAaaN yoooOOOOu... mMm...giIIIVe uuuus dirRECtiooons?!

MARLIN: Dory?! Heaven knows what you're saying! See, he’s swimming away.


MARLIN: He’s not coming back. You offended him.


MARLIN: Dory. Dory, this is not whale. You're speakin' like..upset stomach.

DORY: Maybe I should try humpback.

MARLIN: No, don’t try humpback.


MARLIN: Okay, you actually sound sick.

DORY: Maybe louder, huh? RAAAH!!! RAAAAH!!!!!!

MARLIN: Don’t do that!

DORY: Too much orca. Didn’t it sound a little orca-ish?

MARLIN: It doesn't sound orca! It sounds like nothin' I've ever heard!


MARLIN: It’s just as well, he might be hungry.

DORY: Don’t worry. Whales don’t eat clownfish, they eat krill.

KRILL: Swim away!

DORY: Oh, look. Krill.

MARLIN: Move, Dory! Move!

(Marlin and Dory now get trapped inside the whale's mouth)

Gill: Look at that. Would you look at that? Filthy. Absolutely filthy. And it’s all thanks to you, kid. You made it possible.

(Nemo chuckles)

Gill: Jacques, I said no cleaning!

JACQUES: I am ashamed.

PEACH: Hey look. Scum angel.

GURGLE: [whimpering]

BUBBLES: Bubbles! I love the bubbles! [coughing]

DEB: Flo! Has anybody seen, Flo?

PEACH: 9:00, and cue dentist.

Philip Sherman: Hello, Barbara. Sorry, I’m late.

PEACH: OK. Here we go.

Philip Sherman: Little Davey Reynolds.

PEACH: Walks to the counter, drops the keys...

GURGLE: Bloat, that’s disgustin'!

BLOAT: Tastes pretty good to me. [burps]

GURGLE: Ew! Don’t you people realize we are swimming in our own--

PEACH: Shh! Here he comes.

Philip Sherman: What the?

(the fish hide)

Nemo: Aah!

Philip Sherman: Crikey, what a state. Oh. Barbara, what’s my earliest appointment tomorrow?

BARBARA: Uh, 10:00, love.

Philip Sherman: Leave it open, would you? I gotta clean the fish tank before Darla gets here.

GILL: [laughs] Did you hear that, Sharkbait?

NEMO: Yay! He’s gonna clean the tank! He’s gonna clean the tank! We’re gonna be clean!

GILL: Are you ready to see your dad, kid?

NEMO: Uh-huh.

GILL: Of course you are. You know, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s out there in the harbor waiting for you right now.

NEMO: Yeah.

MARLIN: [yelling and shouting]

DORY: [Dory laughing] Whoo! Here comes a big one! Come on, you gotta try this!

MARLIN: Would you... just... stop it?!

DORY: Why? What’s wrong?

MARLIN: We’re in a whale! Don’t you get it?

DORY: A whale?

MARLIN: A whale! ‘Cause you had to ask for help! And now we’re stuck here!

DORY: A whale. You know I speak whale.

MARLIN: No, you’re insane! You can’t speak whale! I have to get out! I have to find my son! I have to tell him how old sea turtles are.

DORY: [whooping] Hey. You OK? There, there. It’s all right. It’ll be OK.

MARLIN: No, it won’t.

DORY: Sure it will, you’ll see.

MARLIN: No. I promised him I’d never let anything happen to him.

DORY: Huh. That’s a funny thing to promise.


DORY Well, you can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him... Not much fun for little Harpo.

(the whale stops. Marlin and Dory noticed that)

MARLIN: What’s going on?

DORY: Don’t know. I’ll ask him. [moos]

Marlin: Dory. Dory... Dory?

Dory: What's going on?

[whale roars]

DORY: I think he says we’ve stopped.

MARLIN: Of course, we’ve stopped. Just stop trying to speak whale, you’re gonna make things worse. What is that noise?

[whale growls]

MARLIN: Oh, no. Look what you did. The water’s going down! It’s going down!

DORY: Really? You sure about that?

MARLIN: Look, it’s already half-empty!

DORY: Hmm. I’d say it’s half full.

MARLIN: Stop that! It’s half-empty!

(the whale roars)

DORY: OK, that one was a little tougher. He either said we should go to the back of the throat or he wants a root beer float.

MARLIN: Of course he wants us to go there! That’s eating us!!! How do I taste, Moby? Huh?! Do I taste good?! You tell him I’m not interested in being lunch!!!

DORY: OK. He...

MARLIN: Stop talking to him!

(the whale's tongue goes up, making Marlin and Dory fall, they grab the taste buds)

Marlin: What is going on?!

DORY: I’ll check! What..

MARLIN: No! No more whale! You can’t speak whale!

DORY: Yes, I can!

MARLIN: No, you can’t! You think you could do these things but you can’t Nemo!

[roars and whistling]


(Dory let us go)


(Marlin grabs Dory)

DORY: He says it’s time to let go! Everything’s gonna be all right!

MARLIN: How do you know?! How do you know something bad isn’t gonna happen?!

DORY: I don’t!

BOTH: [Dory and Marlin screaming]

MARLIN: [cackles] We’re alive!

DORY: Look! Sydney. Sydney! Sydney! Sydney again!

MARLIN: You were right, Dory! We made it! We’re gonna find my son! Thank you, sir.

DORY: Wow. I wish I could speak whale.

MARLIN: OK. All we gotta do is find the boat that took him.

DORY: Right!

MARLIN: Come on, Dory. We can do this!?

PEACH: [yawns] Morning. It’s morning, everyone! Today’s the day! The sun is shining, the tank is clean and we are getting out of... [gasps] The tank is clean. [Zoom out on the sparkin' clean tank] THE TANK IS CLEEEEAN!!!!!!

GURGLE: Uh-oh.

DEB: But how?

GILL: Boss must’ve installed it last night while we were sleepin'.

NEMO: [worried] What’re we gonna do?

GILL: What’s it say, Peach?

PEACH: [muffled] The Aquascum 2003 is an-

GILL: I can’t hear you, Peach.

PEACH: The AquaScum 2003 is an all-purpose, self-cleaning maintenance free salt water purifier that is guaranteed to even extend the life of your aquarium fish.

BLOAT: [inflates] Stop it!

PEACH: The AquaScum is programmed to scan your tank environment every 5 minutes.

GURGLE: Scan? What does that mean?

[The machine scans the tank and whimpers.]

AQUASCUM: Temperature, 82 degrees. P-H balance normal.

ALL: Ooh.

PEACH: Nice. The AquaScum perhaps seem to the Arthur's Pet Business 2004 Sony Wonder DVD in the North America and tank is clean?!

GURGLE: Uh, no, Bloat, curse you, AquaScum!! You aren't to Arthur Goes on a Field Trip and D.W., the Picky Eater 2005 Sony Wonder DVDs at AquaScum to do either?!

BLOAT: That’s it for the escape plan. It’s ruined.

Nemo: Then what’re we gonna do about--

[He didn't finish before the door opened.]

ALL: Darla!

GILL: Stay down, kid!

[Gills hides Nemo. As the Tank Gang looked, they saw that it was just a woman with her son.]

BUBBLES: Don't move, Sharkbait!

BLOAT: False alarm.

[Everyone sighed, relieved]

GURGLE: My nerves can’t take much more of this.

BLOAT: What are we gonna do when that little brat gets here?

GILL: I’m thinking, I’m thinking.

NEMO: Gill! Help me! Help me!

GILL: Nemo! Hold on, I’m coming! Swim down! Come on, kid! Swim down! C'mon!

BLOAT: Everybody jump in!

DEB: Swim down!

GILL: That’s it!

Philip Sherman: What the?

ALL: Yay!

GILL: Good work!

[But then, a plastic bag grabbed Nemo and pulled him out of the tank.]


Gill: Nemo!

BLOAT: Sharkbait!

GILL: Roll, kid! Lean! Lean! Go to the window.

[Nemo pushed the plastic bag to the window but P. Sherman picks up the bag and places him on the tray to prevent the little fish to escaped.]

Philip Sherman: Whoops. That would’ve been a nasty fall.

NEMO: Gill! Don’t let me go belly up!

GILL: Just calm down, Nemo. You won’t go belly up, I promise. You’re gonna be okay.

ALL: Darla!

DORY: Alright, do any of these boats look familiar to you?

MARLIN: No, but the boat has to be here somewhere! Come on, Dory. We’re gonna find it.

DORY: I’m totally excited. [yawns] Are you excited?

MARLIN: Dory, wake up. Come on.

DORY: Duck!

MARLIN: That’s not a duck. It’s a pelican! No! I didn’t come this far to be breakfast!

PELICAN: Hey, Nigel. Would you look at that?

NIGEL: [wakes up] What?

PELICAN: Sun’s barely up and already Gerald’s had more than he can handle.

NIGEL: Yeah. Reckon somebody oughta help the poor guy.

PELICANS: Yeah, right.

NIGEL: Well, don’t everybody fly off at once. [Nigel flew to the dock to check on the choking pelican.] Alright, Gerald, what is it? Fish got your tongue? [The pelican opens up his mouth the reveal the screamed fish] Love a duck!

MARLIN: I gotta find my son Nemo!

NIGEL: Nemo? Hey, he’s that fish! Y’know the one we were talking about! The one that’s been fighting the whole ocean! Hey, I know where your son... Huh?! [He looked up and saw the two fish flopping away] Hey, wait! Come back! Stop!

MARLIN: Keep going! He’s crazy!

NIGEL: I got something to tell you!


NIGEL: OK. Don’t make any sudden moves. Hop inside my mouth if you want to live.

MARLIN: Hop in your mouth? And how does that make me live?


NIGEL: Because I can take you to your son.

MARLIN: Yeah, right.

NIGEL: No. I know your son. He’s orange, he’s got a gimpy fin on one side..

Marlin: THAT'S NEMO!!!

[The seagulls started to attack.]

SEAGULLS Mine! Mine! Mine!

NIGEL: Fasten your seatbelts!

SEAGULLS: Mine! Mine! Mine!

DORY: Whoo-hoo!

NIGEL: Everybody hold on!

SEAGULLS: Mine! Mine! Mine!

[fish screams]

BUBBLES: Too loud for me!

DARLA: [singing] Twinkle, twinkle little star!

PEACH: Find a happy place. Find a happy place! Find a happy place!

BARBARA: Darla, you’re uncle will see you now.

Philip Sherman: All right, let’s see those pearly whites.

DARLA: [roars] I’m a piranha. They’re in the Amazon.

Philip Sherman: And a piranha’s a fish, just like your present.

DARLA: [giggling] I get a fishy! Fishy!

[As soon as the dentist picks up the plastic bag, he saw Nemo belly up.]

Philip Sherman: Oh, no. Poor little guy.

BLOAT: He’s dead.

GILL: Sharkbait!

DARLA Yay! Fishy, fishy, fishy!

Philip Sherman: Must’ve left your present in the car, sweetie. I’ll go and get it.

[Nemo opened one eye and winked at the Fish Gang. Everyone was surprised.]

GILL: [overjoyed] He’s still alive!

PEACH: He’s not dead!

BLOAT: What’s happening? Why is he playing dead?

GILL: He’s gonna get flushed down the toilet! He’s gonna get outta here!

BLOAT: He’s gonna get flushed!

GURGLE: What a smart little guy!

GILL: Oh no, not the trash can!

BUBBLES: Nemo! No!

[Nigel arrives with Marlin and Dory in his mouth]

NIGEL: Hey. Hey, I found his dad!

MARLIN: Where’s Nemo?! Where is he?!?!

BLOAT: Dentist! Dentist!

GILL: He’s over there!

MARLIN: What’s a "dentist? What is that? Nigel, get in there!

NIGEL: I can’t go in there.

MARLIN: Oh, yes you can. Charge!

DARLA: [screams]

Philip Sherman: What the…? Darla, sweetie, look out! Steady. Hold still! Easy! Hold still! It's all right. Nobody’s going to hurt you!?

[Marlin looked and saw Nemo floats upside down. He thought that his son was dead.]


DORY: Oh, my goodness.

Dr. Philip Sherman: Gotcha! Keep down.


NEMO: [stops pretending to be dead] Daddy?

Philip Sherman: Out with you. And stay out!

NEMO: Daddy!

[Darla picks Nemo's bag. Nemo does not plays dead again; shakes the bag.]

DARLA: Fishy? Fishy! Wake up! Wake up!

DEB: Oh, no!

GILL: Quick! To the top of Mt. Wannahockaloogie!

DARLA: Why are you sleeping!?

PEACH: Hurry!

GILL: Bloat! Ring of Fire!

DARLA: Fishy! [screams]

Philip Sherman: Crikey?! All the animals have gone mad! [grunts]

DARLA: [screams/screamed] Get it out!

GURGLE: Smack her in the head!

BLOAT: Go, Gill!

DARLA: Fish in my hair!

NEMO: Gill.

GILL: Sharkbait. Tell your dad, I said hi.

NEMO: Aah!

GILL: Go get him.

Dr. Philip Sherman: [groans]

BLOAT: He did it!

BUBBLES: I’m so happy!

GURGLE: Is he gonna be OK, Gill?

GILL: Don’t worry. All drains lead to the ocean.

DARLA: Fishy!

NEMO: [screaming] Daddy! [whimpers]

NIGEL: I’m... I’m so sorry. Truly, I am.

DORY: Hey...

MARLIN: Dory. If it wasn’t for you, I never even would have made it here. So, thank you.

DORY: Hey, wait a minute. Wait! Where are you going?

MARLIN: It’s over, Dory. We were too late. Nemo’s gone and I’m going home now.

DORY: No. No, you can’t! Stop! Please don’t go away. Please? No one’s ever stuck with me for so long before. And if you leave, if you leave…I just, I remember things better with you. I do. Look, P. Sherman, 42..! Ugh! I remember it, I do. It’s there, I know it is because when I look at you, I can feel it. And, I look at you and… I’m home. Please. I don’t want them to go away. I don’t want to forget.

MARLIN: I’m sorry, Dory, but I do.

CRAB 1: Manna from heavens!

CRAB 2: Sweet nectar of life!

BOTH: Hey!

CRAB 1: This is our spot!

CRAB 2: Go on! Get outta here!

BOTH: Hey!

CRAB 1: Yeah, that’s it fella! Just keep on swimming, you got that!

CRAB 2: Too right, mate! I got a live one here!

NEMO: Have you seen my Dad?

CRAB 2: Gotcha! Come back here!

CRAB 1: You let him go!

NEMO: Dad! Dad! Dad! Excuse me. Are you all right?

DORY: No! I don’t know where I am! I don’t know what’s going on, I think I lost somebody but I can’t remember.

NEMO: It’s OK. I’m looking for someone too. We can look together.

DORY: [sniffles] I’m Dory.

NEMO: I’m Nemo.

DORY: Nemo? That’s a nice name.

NEMO: Dad!

DORY: Dad!

NEMO: Dad!

DORY: Dad! Wait a minute, is it your dad or my dad?

NEMO: My dad.

DORY: Got it. Dad!

NEMO: Where are we, anyway?

DORY: Dad! Dad! Oh. Syl-shi Sydney."P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney." (screams) Nemo! It's you! You're Nemo!

NEMO: Yes, yes, I’m Nemo!

DORY: Oh! You’re Nemo! You were dead! I saw you! And then I, here you are! I found you! You’re not dead! And your father! Your father!

NEMO: My father!? You know my father!? Where is he!?

DORY: This way! He went this way! Quick!

BOTH: Hey!

DORY: Hey! Have you seen an orange fish swim by? It looks just like him!

NEMO: But bigger!

Bernie: Yeah, I saw 'em, Bluey! But I’m not telling you where he went. And there’s no way you’re gonna make me!

(Dory get furious at Bernie. She puts Bernie out in the surface, the seagulls notice)


Bernie: [screams] All right! I’ll talk! I’ll talk! He went to the fishing grounds! [shrieks]

FISH: Hey! Look out!

MARLIN: Sorry. Just trying to get home.

NEMO: Dad! Dad!


NEMO: Daddy!


NEMO: Dad!

DORY: Nemo's alive!

MARLIN: Dory? Nemo!

NEMO: Daddy!

MARLIN: Nemo! I'm coming, Nemo!

NEMO: Dad!


MARLIN: Oh, thank goodness! It's all right, son. It's gonna be OK.

FISH 1: Turn around! You’re going the wrong way!

DORY: (screams) Look out!




NEMO: Come on! Dory!

DORY: Help! Get us out! (screams)

MARLIN: No, no, no! No, Dory!

NEMO: Dad, I know what to do!

MARLIN: Nemo, no!

NEMO: We have to tell all the fish to swim down together!

MARLIN: Get out of there now!

NEMO: I know this will work!

MARLIN: No, I am not gonna lose you again!

NEMO: Dad, there’s no time! It’s the only way we can save Dory! I can do this!

MARLIN: You’re right. I know you can.

NEMO: Lucky fin!

MARLIN: Now go! Hurry!

NEMO: Tell all of the fish to swim down!

MARLIN: Well? You heard my son! Come on!

NEMO: Dory! We have to tell everybody to...

MARLIN: Swim down together! Do you understand what I’m saying to you? Swim down!

DORY: Everybody swim down!

NEMO: Come on! You have to swim down!

DORY: Swim down, OK?

MARLIN: Down! Swim down! Swim down! Swim down! Don’t give up! Keep swimming! Just keep swimming! That's it!

NEMO: It’s working!

ALL: Keep swimming!

MARLIN: Just keep swimming! Keep swimming!

NEMO: Come on, Dad!

MARLIN: You’re doing great, son!

NEMO: That’s my dad!

MARLIN: Come on! Let’s get to the bottom! Keep swimming!

DORY: [singing] Just keep swimming, just keep swimming.

MARLIN: Almost there! Keep swimming!

ALL: Keep swimming! Keep swimming! [cheering]

MARLIN: Dory, where’s Nemo?!

DORY: There!

MARLIN: Oh, no. Nemo!

NEMO: [moaning]

MARLIN: Nemo? Nemo? It’s OK. Daddy’s here, daddy’s got you.

NEMO: [coughs] Daddy?

MARLIN: Oh, thank goodness.

NEMO: Dad, I don’t hate you.

MARLIN: Oh, no, no, no. I’m so sorry, Nemo. Hey, guess what?

NEMO: What?

MARLIN: Sea turtles? I met one! And he was a 150 years old.

NEMO: 150?


NEMO: ‘Cause Sandy Plankton said they only live to be a 100.

MARLIN: (last words in the flashback) Sandy Plankton? Do you think I would cross the entire ocean and not know as much as Sandy Plankton! He was a 150! Not 100! Who is this Sandy Plankton who knows everything wrong?

[Marlin is riding Crush in the East Australian Current.]
Marlin: Totally sick! Totally sick!
Crush: I know! Isn't it great?
Marlin: No! I'm gonna be totally sick!

Marlin: Dory, these crabs are locals! And I get the feeling they're shushing us for a reason. You might wake up something dangerous!
Dory: Are you talking about like something with one big eye, tentacles and a snappy thing?
Marlin: Well that's very specific, but something like that, yes. You just, in general, don't want to--
[Dory, Marlin, and Nemo see a giant squid behind them as the crabs hide.]

Marlin: I said, not now. You're done enough.

Nemo: I trust Becky.
Marlin: [flatly] You trust Becky. Becky's eating a cup!

Dory: [to a bunch of dead fish] I'm sorry. I gotta blink. How do you hold your eyes open that long?

Marlin: Nemo, I think we should devise an alternate plan something that involves staying in the water and someone sane cause this bird, this ain't the bird!
Nemo: That's fine, Dad, and in the meantime, Dory will just forget us. Like you said, it's what she does best.
Marlin: Fine. [he looks at Becky] Uh, okay. Look her in the eye. Which eye?
Fluke: Just pick one, mate.
Marlin: Becky. [Becky shakes her head, She looks at Marlin with her Red Eyes] Ooh, ooo-roo, ooo-roo, Becky. [Becky Squawks, She flies and landed on Marlin on the Water] Okay. This is all great.

Bailey: Still not clear. Still not clear...
Destiny: You don't have to say when it's not time...
Bailey: Not...
Destiny: Just tell me when it is time!
Bailey: Okay, here we go. And, wait!
Destiny: [flounders in the water] "Here we go, wait." Are you serious?
Bailey: Okay, on the count of 3...
Destiny: Don't count. Just say, "Go."
Bailey: [shouting] Go! Now, now! Do it! Do it!

Nemo: Dad, does this mean we have to say goodbye to Dory?
Marlin: Yes, Nemo. We do.
[Dory humming]

Marlin: She should just pick two and let's go.
Nemo: Dad.
Marlin: What? I'm kidding. It's a reunion.
Dory: Mom! Dad! Where are my parents?
Male Blue Tang #1: Dory? Are you really Jenny and Charlie's girl?
Dory: Yes, I am! That's me! Where are they?
Male Blue Tang #2: Well, Dory... Well, right after you disappeared, they thought you... They thought you must've ended up here in quarantine.
Dory: Uh-huh.
Hank: Come on, come on, come on!
Male Blue Tang #2: And so, they came here, to look for you.
Dory: They're here! Where are they?
Female Blue Tang #1: Dory, that was years ago.
Dory: Huh?
Female Blue Tang #2: They never came back.
Marlin: Oh, no...
Female Blue Tang #2: You see, Dory, when fish don't come back from quarantine, it means... they're not...
Dory: What?
Marlin: Dory... They're gone.
Dory: [gasps] They're... dead?

Bailey: Oooh! There's no way out. It's over! They're going to fish jail! Ooooh! Wait. Oooh, Oh, no. Oooh. Get back! Incoming!
[The Marine Life Institute truck Bob careens over the cliff with Hank, Dory, and the fish in it. Everything goes in slow motion as Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" plays, as the fish fall out of the truck, and into the ocean. Fluke and Rudder are delighted.]
Fluke and Rudder: Fish! [a large fish knocks them into the water]
Sigourney Weaver: What lies before you represents the third and final of part of the Marine Life mission. Rescue, rehabilitation, and release.
Charlie: Come to Papa!
[Hank and Dory splash into the water, followed by Bob.]
Sigourney Weaver: I'm Sigourney Weaver. Thank you for joining me.
Police boat captain: [as he scoops Hank and Dory] You are under arrest for stealing a white truck.
Police Officer: Get in the police car!
DOT worker 1: What did you find?
DOT worker 2: [using a crane truck pulling the Marine Life Institute truck Bob out of the water] Is a truck.
Tow truck driver: [when the DOT workers push Bob into an oversize load trailer truck] Push him into the trailer.
Passenger Carl: [after a long drive to Cleveland] Phew. That was a long drive. Let's unload some fish.
Daisy: [when she opens the back doors of Bob] Wait. Where'd the fish go?
Marine Life Institute of Cleveland worker: [when Carl and Daisy puts some fishes that don't belong in there] Alright to unload some fish.
Passenger Carl: The blue tangs are gone.

Dory: Hey, Marlin.
Marlin: Oh, hey. Hello, Dory.
Dory: You alright? You look worried.
Marlin: No, no, no. I'm... I'm fine. It's... It's how I always look.
Dory: What?
Marlin: Well, I just... (chuckles) You did it.
Dory: (gasps)
Jenny: Yay!
Charlie: You did it, kelpcake!
Jenny: Yes!
Baby Dory: (laughs) Did what?
Jenny: Sweetie, you just followed the shells all the way back home!
Baby Dory: Oh my gosh! I did? all by myself?
Jenny: Yeah.
Charlie: Do you know what this means, honey?
Jenny: It means you can do whatever you put you mind to, Dory.
Baby Dory: Really? Mommy, can I go play with them?
Charlie: Absolutely! Go get 'em, kelpcake!
Baby Dory: (laughs)
Dory: Yeah. I did it. Hmm.
Marlin: Hmm. It really is quite a view.
Dory: Yep. [Long pauses] Unforgettable.

[post-credits; last lines]
Peach: Hey guys, wait up! I'm right behind ya!
Gill: You can do it! Just a little farther, that's it!
Gurgle: I am truly going to vomit!
Gill: Alright, gang. Good work.
[The Tank Gang cheers.]
Deb (& Flo): Oh, look Flo. We made it!
Gill: We won't have anymore problems from here on out!
[The Tank Gang cheers again, only to get scooped up by two Marine Life Institute rescuers.]
Marine Life Institute Female Rescuer: [as she places The Tank Gang in the cooler] No respect for ocean life.
Bloat: [last lines of the film] Now what?! [seals yawns]
