(waves crashing)

(distant music playing)

(music stops)


Hey, get up.

It's time to check the buoy.

Come on, Josh.

(Josh grunts)

Oh, no.

So you regret

proposing to my sister?

What I regret is letting you

plan my engagement party.


I know.

Here, get this into you.

It's my great-gran's

hangover remedy.


Smells like shit.

Oh, God.

You're spilling it.

You know,

once you get past the gag reflex,

- it's actually not that bad.

- Yeah.


I'll check the buoy.

Oh, my sister's down the beach.

She wants to show you something.


(car door opens, closes)

(car engine starts)

(car engine fades)

Looks like it's gonna be

a busy one. Want a hand with that?

What, you're actually gonna

get wet today?

Make a bit of a change,

wouldn't it?




I bet you've never seen

one of these.


What is it?


Were you looking at my butt?


- No?

- Maybe.

(woman laughs)


You look terrible.


It's your brother's fault.

But you smell nice.

You always smell nice.

Are you ready

to leave all this behind?

Where you go, I go.

Well, there won't be places like this

in Singapore.

Oh, we'll come back.



Shark! Shark!

(voices shouting)

(siren blaring)

Get help!

Go get help!


Get everyone out of the water!

Joe, give me a hand.





- Shark!

- I can't hear you.

- Shark!

- What?

Give me your hand.


I got you. I got you.




Along with

the yearly southern migration

of the humpback whales

along the East Coast waters,

"Surfline" surfing spokesman

Jeff Tripp said

people should be very vigilant

this time of year,

as we've seen large gatherings

of sharks in the waters

following the whales

along the coast.

Now, what they're doing

is hunting the whale calves

and bait fish

surrounding the migration.

TV reporter:
So if you are heading

to the beaches,

please observe the signs

and swim only between the flags.

Great whites are expected

in the area over the next month.

And now, on a brighter note,

it's been a picture-perfect day

here on the East Coast

with blue skies

as far as the eye can see.

TV reporter:

No signs improving

for the sailors

and the windsurfers, however.

We seem to be hit

with the doldrums,

which means there are

no surface winds.

(chimes tinkling)

(distant dogs barking)


(birds screeching)

(crow cawing)

(seagulls squawking)

(crows cawing)


Man in hood:

We gotta move to the car park.

Can't stay here.

(engine starts)

(man announcing over PA)


Yes, please.

- Josh:

- Hey.

- Jessup come by yet?

- Not yet. You're safe.

Good morning, by the way.


(pop music playing)

Shake your body

Shake your body

Shake your booty...

(music stops)

Why are we stopping here?

- Hey, Kyle.

- Shh.

(keypad clicks)

You're bad.

- (dog whines)

- Woman:

(dog yapping)

Shut up.

What are you doing here?


You scared me.

Happy anniversary.

You remembered.

11 months, baby.

It's not very much. It's just a song

playlist for when we go to Sydney.

Thank you. Thank you.

Ooh, and...

happy anniversary

to you too.

- Tell me you didn't steal these.

- Oh, Ryan.

Yeah, okay, okay,

put them back.

But then I have

nothing to give you.

Doesn't matter.

It's the thought that counts.

Put them back, okay?

Come on.

Oops, I hope we're not

interrupting anything.

You know, that's a really

cool jacket.


Bet it's got lots of pockets, huh?

Mind if we take a little peek?
