Finding Nemo

Set in the underwater world of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Nemo is a 6 year-old clownfish who is taken away from his home, and ends up in a fish tank in a dentist's office, overlooking Sydney Harbor.

His father, Marlin, sets off on an epic journey to find Nemo, accompanied by the forgetful Dory, a Regal Blue Tang fish. Along the way they encounter vegetarian sharks, hungry seagulls and surfer dude turtles.

In his new fish tank home, Nemo is befriended by it's inhabitants who warn him that he is destined to become a birthday gift for the dentist's niece, Darla. Sadly, Darla has a bad track record in looking after fish, and so Nemo's new friends try everything they can to set him free.

100 minutes long.

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!

Dory: I shall call him squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my squishy Come on, squishy Come on, little squishy. Ow Bad squishy, bad squishy

Bubbles: So, the Big Blue. What's it like?
Nemo: Umm... big... and blue?
Bubbles: I knew it.

Marlin: How do you know if they're ready?
Crush: Well, you never really know, but when they know, you know, y'know?

Bruce: Just a bite!
Anchor: Now you hold it together mate!
Chum: Remember, Bruce! Fish are friends, not food!
Bruce: Food!

Jaws Will Drop.
Sea it.
71% of the Earth's surface is covered by water. That's a lot of space to find one fish.


Female clownfish are always bigger than their mates, so Coral should be bigger than Marlin.
When Bruce is chasing Marlin and Dory, his mask changes from the right to left side and back again.
the diving flag on the dentist's boat is the US version which isn't used in Australia.
The dentist scoops Nemo out of the aquarium the bag he uses has a zipper top, but next time the bag is shown is has a plain top.
