SummaryAdd a Summary
Life along the Great Barrier Reef is full of dangers when you are a tiny clown fish. And for Marlin, a single parent determined to protect his only son Nemo, there are constant fears and anxieties. When, on his first day of school, Nemo defies his father and swims off alone to investigate a boat, he is suddenly scooped up by a diver as Marlin helplessly watches. Marlin turns desperate as he frantically swims off in search for his son. As he passes a school of fish he bumps into Dory, an agreeable blue tang with severe short-term memory loss, who offers to help. Together this aquatic odd couple set out on an impossible mission, finding themselves in troubled waters and contending with such hazards as sharks, deadly angler fishes and a forest of jellyfish. Meanwhile, in a dentist's office overlooking Sydney Harbor, Nemo has landed in a fish tank that is home to a colorful group of characters who want to initiate him into their gang. When word of Marlin and Dory's ocean adventures gets back to Nemo, he is so thrilled to learn of his father's search for him that he becomes motivated to move forward with a daring escape plan of his own.
Two clownfish, Marlin and his wife Coral are admiring their new home in the Great Barrier Reef. They are protecting their clutch of eggs that are due to hatch in a few days. Coral sees a barracuda a short distance away. Marlin tells Coral to get back into the anemone but she tries to protect their eggs. The barracuda then attacks them and Marlin attempts to defend his wife but the barracuda knocks him out. When he regains consciousness, he finds that the barracuda has eaten Coral and all but one of their eggs. He names the last remaining egg Nemo, a name that Coral liked.

Dory: Hey there, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you wanna know what you've gotta do? Marlin: No I don't wanna know. Dory: [singing] Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim. Marlin: Dory, no singing. Dory: [continuing] Ha, ha, ha, ha, ho. I love to swim. When you want to swim you want to swim. Marlin: Now I'm stuck with that song... Now it's in my head. Dory: Sorry.
Deb: What have we got? Peach: Root canal, and by the looks of those X-rays, it's not going to be pretty. [Dentist drills and patient screams] Bloat: Rubber dam and clamp installed? Peach: Yep. Gurgle: What did he use to open? Peach: A Gator-Glidden drill. He seems to be favoring that one lately. Deb: [sighs] I can't see, Flo. [Dentist picks teeth and patient screams] Peach: Now he's doing the Schilder technique. Bloat: Ooh, he's using a Hedstrom file. Gurgle: That's not a Hedstrom file, it's a K-FLEX. Bloat: It has a tear-dropped cross section. Clearly, a Hedstrom. Gurgle: No, no, K-FLEX. Bloat: HEDSTROM. Gurgle: K-FLEX! Bloat: HEDSTROM! [Inflates] Bloat: Oomp. There I go. A little help. Over here. Deb: [sighs] I'll go deflate him.
Marlin: So, we're cheating death now, that's what we're doing, and we're having fun at the same time, I can do this, just be careful... Dory: Yeah, be careful I don't make you cry when I win! Marlin: Oh 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? Why? Marlin: 'Cause you're about to eat my bubbles!
Crush: Dude? Dude? Focus dude... Dude? [Marlin wakes up] Crush: Oh, he lives. Hey, dude! Marlin: Oh... What happened? Crush: Saw the whole thing, dude. First you were all like "whoa", and we were like "whoa", and you were like "whoa..." Marlin: What are you talking about? Crush: You, Mini-Man, takin' on the jellies. You've got serious thrill issues, dude. Awesome. Marlin: Oh, my stomach. Ohh. Crush: Oh, man. Hey, no hurling on the shell, dude, ok? Just waxed it. Marlin: So, Mr. Turtle? Crush: Whoa, Dude. Mister Turtle is my father. The name's Crush. Marlin: Crush, really? OK, Crush. I need to get to the East Australian Current. EAC? Crush: [laughing] Oh, dude. You're ridin' it, dude! Check it out!
Deb: Yay! Bloat: Ha, ha, ha, ha! Gill: We did it! [pause] Bloat: Now what?
Marlin: Now it's my turn. I'm thinking of something dark and mysterious. It's a fish we don't know. 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: I don't want to play the gender card right now. You want to play a card, let's play the "let's not die" card.
Bruce: [reciting] 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.
Crush: Okay. Squirt here will now give you a rundown of proper exiting technique. Squirt: Good afternoon. We're gonna have a great jump today. Okay, first crank a hard cutback as you hit the wall. There's a screaming bottom curve, 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. [to Squirt] Marlin: Look, you're really cute, but I can't understand what you're saying. Say the first thing again.
