- Happy birthday Jessie!

- Thank you, Daddy!

You're four years old now!

Are we there yet?

I wanna see the turtles!

There will be lots of turtles

on the beach!

Come on, kids!



Amy, what's wrong with Jeff?!

He might've eaten something.

I'll go to the front desk.

Maybe there's a doctor here.

- Okay.

- Hold on.

Let's go inside.

- You can wash up and take a nap, Jeff.

- But what about the turtles, Mom?


The turtles, Mom!

Later, Jessica.

- Mom!

- Later, Joanna. Stay with your sister.

Come, Joanna! Let's go!

Over there!

Joanna, hold my hand.

Sis, are we going to the turtles?


Let's hurry! We might not see them!

Let's go, Joanna!


They're so many!

Sis, look at them.

Joanna, look!


There are more turtles over there!

Joanna, let's go there!

Little turtle rushing to meet the sea

Broke out of your shell,

you're now free

Little turtle on a long journey

Embrace the waves,

follow your destiny

Little turtle searching for that place

Where time stands still

and everyone stays

Little turtle, have you found a home?

Where you are loved and never alone.

Little turtle, nurse your broken heart

For there's no going back

to the start.

Wow! This looks good!

No! That's for Mom.

That's her favorite!

I cooked that for her.

Little turtle,

drowning in an ocean of pain

Let your tears wash away with the rain

Come on, Jess!

We've been friends much longer!

Oh, sorry. Are you okay?

I am. Are you hurt?

Do you really care if I got hurt?

- Little turtle,

- Let's go.

aren't you getting tired

Pretending you never

really died inside?

Wow! Congratulations, Jess!

Just two mistakes!

Why you look so sad?

- That Froggy got a perfect score!

- So?

I have to graduate

as batch valedictorian.

I want to give Mom a reason

to attend my graduation.

Little turtle,

stop reaching for the sun.

In her eyes, you belong in the ocean.

Little turtle lost at sea,

Rise above your misery.

Good! 40.09 seconds!

You beat your old record!

I want to win coach.

I have to win.

Little turtle lost at sea,

Remember how it used to be.

Little turtle lost at sea,

You will be found...


Good poem, Jessica!

"Little Turtle Lost At Sea".

You used a wonderful

metaphor for your sister.

Thank you, Sir.

Okay, you may take your seat.

- So class,

- I expect that your poems are...

- It's so touching.

- as good as Jessica.

- Really, Jessie.

Now, who wants to go next?


Yes, Luisa!

Ma'am, I'll go ahead.

- Okay, Giselle. Thank you.

- Good night, Ma'am.


- Guard, I'll go ahead.

- Okay, Ma'am!


- Miss Chedeng! Miss Tasing!

- Going home?

Yes, ma'am!

Ana is so polite, isn't she?...




My child...


- Hello...

- God bless you.

It's fine.

Ana, your Aunt Tida and I

are going to the resort.

They need some help in

the kitchen and waiters too.

Really, Ma?


That would help us in our

household expenses...

especially now that your Uncle Dado's

boat isn't working.

Ana, why aren't you

wearing your shoes?

I don't want to wear them out.

We don't have money

to buy a new ones.

We also don't have money

to pay for your hospital bills...

if you acquire tetanus.

Ma, I'm your daughter.

We Bartolome kids are strong, right?

No way am I getting tetanus!

Fine, whatever you say!

Here comes San Antonio's champion!

Go idol!

Go idol!

- Go idol!

- Go idol!

- Go idol!

- Backstroke

Come, Buboy!

And the winner is Ana Bartolome!


- Sis.

- What?

Do you have something for me?

What did the thin fish

say to the fat fish?
