BLOAT
Nemo! Newcomer of orange and white! You have been called forth to the top of Mt. Wanna-hock-a-loogie to join with us, in the fraternal bonds... of tankhood.
NEMO
Huh?!
PEACH
We want you in our club, kid.
NEMO
Realy?
BLOAT
If you can swim through... The Ring... of... Fire!
BLOAT
Come on, the Ring of Fire! The Ring of Fire!
JACQUES
Sorry!
BLOAT
You said you could do this!

NEMO
Hey dad! Maybe when I'm at school, I'll see a shark.
MARLIN
I highly doubt it.
NEMO
Have how ever met a shark?
MARLIN
No, and I don't plan to.
NEMO
How old are sea turtles?
MARLIN
Sea turtles? I don't know.
NEMO
Sandy Plankton from next door, he says they live to be a hundred years old.
MARLIN
Well, if I ever meet a sea turtle I'll ask him, right after I'm done talking to the shark.

GILL
Bloat! Ring of Fire! (heavy breathing) (wheel creaking) (explosion)
DARLA
Fishy-- AAAAAAAAAAAAAH-AAAAAAAAAAAH!
DENTIST
Crikey! All the animals have gone mad--! Oof!
DARLA
AAAAAAAAAAH! Get it out! AAAAAAAAAAAAH!
GURGLE
Smack her in the head!
BLOAT
Go! Gill! Go!
DARLA
Fish in my hair!
NEMO
Uh, Gill!
GILL
Sharkbait, tell you dad. I said, hi. Go get 'em!

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, Gil...
GILL
I just want to see him do it, Okay? Keep calm. Alternate wriggling your fins and your tail.
NEMO
I can't. I have a bad fin.
GILL
Never stopped me.
GILL
Just think about what you have to do.
GILL
Perfect.

GILL
You see that filter?
NEMO
Yeah.
GILL
You're the only one small enough to get in and out of that thing. All you have to do swim inside, jam a pebble in the fan, and swim out. Once you do that, this tank is going to get filthier and filthier, and the dentist will have no choice but to clean the tank himself. He'll put us in individual baggies, then we roll out the window, down to the ground, across the street, and into the ocean. It's foolproof!

Sweet!
NEMO, SQUIRT
Totally!

GILL
[Catches Nemo staring at his broken fin] My first escape. Landed on dentist tools. I was aiming for the toilet.
NEMO
The toilet?
GILL
All drains lead to the ocean, kid.
NEMO
Wow. How may times have you tried to get out?
GILL
Ah, I lost count.
2
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.

NEMO
...uh... AH. [wakes up]
JACQUES
Suivez-moi. [Nemo stares, unsure]
JACQUES
