Marlin's story travels far and wide throughout the ocean from fish to fish.
Finally word reaches the pelicans in Sydney Harbour. Nigel overhears the story and recognizes the name from the dentist's fish tank.
In the fish tank, Nemo's pretty bummed. Looks like he's going to have to go with Darla after all. Nemo tells Gill that he's sorry he didn't clog up the tank filter.
Nope. Gill is the one who should apologize. He was willing to put Nemo in harm's way just to escape. That's not a very nice thing to do.
Nigel rushes towards the dentist's window to tell Nemo that his dad is on his way. Nemo doesn't believe it at first, but then Nigel tells him the whole story. Marlin's been braving the big, scary ocean to find his son. Awww.
This is just the motivation Nemo needs. He grabs a few pebbles in his mouth and swims back up into the filter. Before the other fish can even finish freaking out, Nemo is back out into the tank. Mission accomplished for real this time.
The tank has about forty-eight hours to get super dirty before Darla comes. Fins crossed that this plan works, everyone.
