Finding Nemo: The Musical (Disney’s Animal Kingdom) – Part 2

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Continued from Part 1.)

MARLIN
He’s gone. He can’t be gone! Has anybody seen a boat? Please, they took my son! I’m coming, Nemo!

(DORY enters, singing.)

DORY
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la—
Lookout! (She crashes into MARLIN.) Ooh, sorry, sir.

MARLIN
He’s got my son. He’s got Nemo. Have you seen a boat?

DORY
A boat? I’ve seen a boat! Follow me!
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la.
(Looking at MARLIN suspiciously.) Do you mind?

MARLIN
What?

DORY
I’m tryin’ to swim here.

MARLIN
But we’re trying to find Nemo. You were showing me which way the boat went.

DORY
A boat? I’ve seen a boat! Follow me!
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la la la la,
La la la la la.
(Eyeing MARLIN again.) Do I know you?

MARLIN
Yes, you were showing me which way the boat went.

DORY
A boat? I saw a boat—

MARLIN
Wait! We already did this.

DORY
We did? Oh dear
I guess I should explain—
I got this problem with my brain.
Things get really scrambled in my head!
I have no short term memory,
Forget things almost instantly.
I’m not even sure what I just said.
May I help you?

MARLIN
There’s something wrong with you, really. You’re wasting my time. I have to find my son.

DORY
Chico?

MARLIN
Nemo!

BRUCE (Appearing behind them)
Hello, love.

DORY
Well, hi!

BRUCE
Name’s Bruce.

DORY
I’m Dory, and this is…

MARLIN
You don’t need to know. I’m nobody, really. I was just leaving—

BRUCE
I’d like to invite you morsels to a little party I’m having.

DORY
Hey look—balloons! It is a party!

BRUCE
(Laughs.) Mind your distance, though. You wouldn’t want one o’ them to pop! Anchor! Chum!

ANCHOR
It’s about time, mate. I’m starvin’.

CHUM
What’cha bring for us, mate?

BRUCE
Couple o’ tasty bites.

(The SHARKS laugh and make sounds of hunger.)

BRUCE
Alright then! Our meeting has officially come to order. Let us all say the pledge!
Fish are friends.

ANCHOR
Fish are friends.

CHUM
Fish are friends.

SHARKS
Not food!

Though we have long sharp teeth,
We’re nice sharks underneath.
We know that fish are friends, not food.

CHUM
Well, sometimes we know.

SHARKS
Sure we could eat you whole,
But we have self-control!
We know that fish are friends, not food.

MARLIN
I’d like to be your friend!

BRUCE
The stress of life in the ocean
Will lead to emotional eating.

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Yes it will!

BRUCE
When you need help gettin’ through it,
And kelp just won’t do it,
Don’t start feeding—

SHARKS
Swim to our meeting!

Oh yes, we’ve seen the light.
Each day we fight the fight.
To curb our appetite,
And change our attitude.

BRUCE
Fish are friends…

ANCHOR
Fish are friends…

BRUCE
Fish are friends…

CHUM
Fish are food!

BRUCE AND ANCHOR
No!

SHARKS
Fish are friends, not food!

BRUCE
Like we rehearsed, gentlemen.

SHARKS
Doo, doo, doo, doo, etc.

MARLIN
Look! That mask belonged to the diver that took my son!

DORY
Harpo?

MARLIN:
Nemo! What do these markings mean? I can’t read human.

DORY
Hey look—sharks! I bet they can help!

MARLIN
No, no, no! Dory!

DORY
Hey fellas? Guys? Hey?

MARLIN
No Dory!

DORY
If you could just—

MARLIN
Gimme it!

DORY
I know what to— (The mask snaps and gives her a bloody nose.) Ow!

MARLIN
Oh, I’m sorry! Is you’re nose bleeding?

DORY
You really clocked me there!

BRUCE
(Smells the blood.) Ooh that’s good!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Intervention!

BRUCE
I need a little taste!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
No!

BRUCE
Why let ’em go to waste?

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Bruce!
Remember fish are friends, not food!

ANCHOR
Remember the steps!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
He’s really not so bad.
He never knew his dad.

BRUCE
I need some food!
I need some food!
I need some food!!

(SHARKS start to chase MARLIN and DORY.)

MARLIN
There’s no way out!

DORY
Es-ca-pay! That’s funny, it’s spelt the same as “escape.”

MARLIN
Dory… You can read?

DORY
I can read? Hey, I can read!

MARLIN
Well, read the mask!

BRUCE
I’ve got you in my sight,
I’m having fish tonight!!

DORY
This way!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Remember fish are friends.
Remember fish are friends.
Remember fish are friends…

(Sound of bombs about to explode.)

BRUCE
Swim away! Swim away!

ANCHOR AND CHUM
Not food.

(Big explosions. Applause. Change of scene to dental office.)

P. SHERMAN
You haven’t been flossing, mate. This won’t hurt a bit. (Sound of dental drill and patient screaming.) Well, maybe a little bit… How’s the missus?

(Patient tries to talk through dental gauze.)

See this little fish? Found him on the reef. Thought he’d make a good present for my niece’s birthday on Friday.

NEMO
Dad? (Bumps into glass side of tank.) Daddy?!

Where’s my dad? I’m all alone.
I’m too small to be here on my own.
I swam away, ’cause I got mad.
But now I really need him.
Where’s my dad?

(Fish tank comes to life with chanting and dancing.)

TANK GANG
Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! Wannahockaloogie! 
Welcome!!

NEMO
Daddy!

DEB
Oh no. We scared him!

PEACH
I don’t know why we just can’t say “hello”?

NEMO
I wanna go home! Daddy!

PEACH
Honey, your dad’s probably back at the pet store.

NEMO
Pet store?

BLOAT
Yeah, ya know. Like I’m from Bob’s Fish-Farm.

DEB
Fish-O-Rama!

BUBBLES
Mail-order…

PEACH
eBay.

NEMO
I—I’m from the ocean!

NIGEL
The ocean, eh?

NEMO
Ahh!

TANK GANG
Hi, Nigel.

NIGEL
I’m from the ocean too! Sorry If I ever took a snap at ya, lad. So what have we got today, mates?

PEACH
Root canal!

NIGEL
Ooh! Has he loosened the periodontal ligiment?

P. SHERMAN
Shoo! Shoo! He’s not your fish! He’s going to my Darla!

(Theme from Psycho plays ominously.)

BLOAT
Darla?! (Puffs.) Oh no!

NEMO
What? What’s wrong with her?

PEACH
Every year, she gets a fish.

DEB
Every year, she shakes the bag!

BLOAT
And every year, that fish goes belly-up!

TANK GANG
She’s a fish killer!

NEMO
I can’t go with that girl—I need my dad! I gotta get back to my dad. Daddy!!

GILL
Hey, kid! You’ll get back to your dad. I’ve been watching you, and you’re small enough to break us free.

NEMO
I don’t swim well. I’ve got a bad fin…

GILL
One bad fin has never stopped me.

PEACH
Your escape plans never work, Gill.

GILL
But this time we’ve got him. I promise, we will all get out, as long as we can swim…
Together!
We swim together!
Cooperation is the secret to our success.

BUBBLES
Bubbles?

GILL
We swim in harmony…

BLOAT
And we start at dentistry.

GILL:
We’re the fish of Pablo Sherman, D.D.S.

This little guy is one of us now. And we can’t send him off to his death. Darla’s coming in five days, but he’ll be long gone by then. We all will—if we do this the way we do everything else!

GILL
Together…

TANK GANG
We swim together!
And together we’ll get out of here as a group.

BLOAT
Oh, I believe we can!

NEMO
Yeah, but what’s the plan?

GILL
We’re gonna jam the filter and fill this tank with poop!

TANK GANG
Huh?

GILL
When this kid jams the filter, the tank will get filthy, and the dentist will have to clean it. He’ll put us into individual bags and we’ll roll out the window into the ocean!

TANK GANG
Ohhh!

BLOAT
The whole “poop” thing threw me.

ALL
Together!
We swim together!

GILL
Little clownfish you’re our ticket to breaking free.

ALL
And if we all join fins,
Everybody wins!
And we’ll swim together
In the open sea!

GILL
So what’s your name, kid?

NEMO
I’m Nemo!
