- In the ocean, Marlin comes to and notices he's on the back of a sea turtle. This sea turtle happened to see Marlin battle off those jellyfish, too. It was pretty awesome.
- Marlin tells the turtle—whose name is Crush—that he needs to get to the East Australian Current. Turns out, they're on it.
- Marlin floats along with a whole mess of sea turtles as they fast track it towards Sydney. Then he remembers Dory. Is she okay?
- Of course, and she's playing hide and seek with some little kid turtles.
- When one of the turtles accidentally swims outside the current, Marlin freaks out. But, Crush tells him they should just wait to see what this little guy, whose name is Squirt, does on his own.
- Sure enough, the tiny turtle manages to find his way back into the current. And he gets a big congrats from his dad, Crush. Okay, so here's one ocean dad who's not totally overprotective.
- Crush explains that raising turtle kids is awesome. You leave them on a beach to hatch and they find their way back to you.
- That sounds kind of dangerous. How do you know when kids are ready to go out on their own, Marlin asks?
- You don't, Crush tells him. You've just have to trust that they know when they're ready. That's some sage turtle advice right there.
- The little turtles swarm around Marlin and want all kinds of details about his fight with the jellyfish and where he's going, so Marlin starts to explain the whole crazy story. It's a pretty good one.
