I... I have to find the boat.

A boat? Hey, I've seen a boat.

-You have?

Uh-huh. This way!

It went this way.

Follow me.

-Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you so much.

one year later

Hand me the ratchet wrench.

So I can fix it.


Hey, Marlin.


Hey, guys.

I was just...

Ow ow ow...

Dory, it's not time

to get up yet.

You have to go back to bed.

-Remember. There aren't any mistakes.


Yeah, sorry.

Back to bed.

Back to bed.

Hey, Marlin.


Go back to bed.

That was it.

Very simple, bed.


Back to...

-Got it.

Hey, Marlin.

-And... we're up.

That's it, ready to start the day.

And we were looking

for something.



I remember it like

it was yesterday.

Of course I don't really

remember yesterday all that well.


I would say, the scariest moment

of the trip was the 4 sharks.


I thought there were 3 sharks.

No. No.

There were definitely 4.

But the last time you told it,

there were 3.

Son. Which one of us traveled

across the entire ocean.

Nemo did.

Obviously we had to cross

the ocean to find him. So...

You know, he went first.

I guess that's true.

Isn't it?


You made it.

You almost missed the field trip.

-A field?

Ooo, I love field trips.

Where are we going?

I thought you told her.

-I did tell her.

Uh, Dory.


Mr. Ray has too many fish

to keep an eye on today.



It would be best if today...


If you weren't exactly...

with the class.

-Oh. Why not?

You know, you have problems

remembering things sometimes.

That's the one thing

I can't remember, yeah.


Sometimes it's not your fault,

but it can cause you to wonder.

And Mr. Ray doesn't really

have time to worry about...

Fish who wonders.


In another words, he doesn't

have enough help.
