the other kids now.

Hi, Dory.

-Ahoy, there.

Do you want to

play hide and seek?


I love to.

We'll hide and you count

and come find us.

Okay, Daddy.

No, no.

who wants to be your friend.


-Okay, Daddy.

Sand is squishy.

Mommy, can I go

play with them?



Dory, cupcake.

Dory, honey.

-Hold your toes, sweetie.

Remember, honey.

We have to stay away

from the undertow.

Okay, sweetheart.

What about the rhyme we learned.

We see the undertow

and we say.

Let's go.



It's, "Heck no!"


Let's try it again.

We see the undertow

and we say.

There's the undertow.

There you find the undertow

and we see the undertow.

Did I forget again?

-No, no.

No, sweetie. It's okay.

-No biggie, cupcake.

What if I forget you?


Would you ever forget me?

Oh cupcake, no.

-We will never forget you, Dory.

And we know

you'll never forget us.





Did you hear that?

-What's that? Hear what?

I heard someone say hello.


I didn't hear anybody said hello.

I don't know, Stan.

I just heard someone say hello.
