[S1E1] Fish Out Of Water
Strawberry and Orange are relaxing by the pond one day when Orange suddenly begins to panic upon feeling something touch her foot. She finds a green fish in the water and both are instantly smitten by it's cuteness. Orange decides to take it in as a pet, but hesitant, Strawberry suggests that she gives it more thought first because it will eventually grow and become harder to take care of. Orange is sure she can handle it though, pointing out that it wants to come with her anyway. She asks Strawberry if she trusts her and before getting a full answer, she scoops it up and takes it away to show the other girls. Strawberry is still concerned, but she decides to let Orange enjoy herself and see what will come from this.
[S1E1] Fish Out of Water
One day, while Strawberry is trying to determine which book she wants from Blueberry Books a panicked Orange runs inside to ask for a book about fish. Todd has gotten sick and she doesn't know what to do. Seeing how worried she is, Blueberry asks for his symptoms and once Orange informs her of what happened, Blueberry reveals Todd is a frog. Orange is startled by this and she leads them back to her shop to reveal how much larger he's become. She stubbornly refuses to believe he isn't a fish despite the other girls clearly being able to see that Blueberry was right. Strawberry suggests that in knowing this, Todd should be taken back to the pond but Orange refuses, claiming that an oversight in his species doesn't mean anything to her. She quotes Strawberry and assures the girls that she can handle him.
Strawberry and Plum make their way to Lemon Salon when an outburst from inside surprises them. They open the door to find Todd sitting inside of a metal pan getting a bath. While feverishly trying to keep him in the pan to spray him with some perfume, Lemon explains how Orange dropped him off earlier. He suddenly jumps out of the pan and splashes water all over the place before hopping out the door. The three girls chase after him until they find him at a waterfall, along with Orange Blossom, who assumes that Lemon was done. Seeing how frustrated she is, Strawberry tries to once more convince Orange that Todd belongs in the wild, but Orange won't hear of it. She takes him away and tells Lemon she'll be back later, much to Lemon's chagrin.
The girls irritated moods remain the next day, and by now Strawberry is beginning to get frustrated. They pay a visit to Orange Mart but are unable to fin her there, but as they prepare to leave they find a swimming pool she and Plum have been working on for Todd. Strawberry scolds Plum for encouraging Orange in such a way, but Plum reasons that for helping Orange, she promised her that she could use the pool for water ballet class.
Excel 1860 F4 Boat w/ Mud Buddy 4400 Mud Motor from Xtreme OutdoorsThe most important piece of gear was the boat. This specific boat allowed us to run in this very shallow water, especially when the tide was out, and go about 4 miles into the marsh. Many times, we were running on full plane in about 8 inches of water with two camera guys, Jean-Paul, and myself.
Lucky Duck Agitator HD and Lucky Duck Quiver Duck Butt HDThe agitator splashes and throws water in the air, and the quiver butt makes ripples throughout the spread, again, great for calm conditions.
I think it is pathetic how the large group treated Shane and Danielle. They also did not share their stingray with Jeff and EJ, but expected them to share their email. Selfish, lazy, pathetic people. And for the one guy to boast being a Marine and his first episode, he is a poor example of the principles of a Marine.
Cleo yells at Zane as the boat starts to drift out of the harbor, but Zane suggests that Cleo will have to swim for it. As Cleo sulks, Rikki Chadwick takes a leap off a nearby pier and lands in the boat. Cleo gets spooked by Rikki's sudden appearance, then asks her if it is supposed to be a rescue as they are both just floating out to sea. Rikki produces a spark plug that she took, and as she steps towards the motor, she tells Cleo that Zane Bennett is a pig and anything she can do to get under his skin can't be a bad thing. As Rikki fits the spark plug to the motor, Cleo thanks her. Rikki is surprised that Cleo knows her name, and Cleo explains that she had seen Rikki around school since she arrived, and had meant to say hello. Rikki replaces the engine cover, tells Cleo to hold on, then starts the motor and drives the boat back into the harbor. As they pass Zane, Rikki revs the engine up and turns the boat around, sending a large spray of water flying towards him. The two girls chuckle while Zane can only look at Nate.
Rikki and Cleo take the boat for a spin around the waterways of the Gold Coast and wave to another passing boat. As they ride along one canal they see Emma, and Cleo asks her if she wants a ride. Emma replies by asking Rikki if she is licensed, to which Rikki sarcastically replies "Are you my mother?". Emma shakes her head, but gets on the boat anyway. With all three of them aboard, Rikki asks if they want to go out to sea. Emma asks if that is dangerous in a craft their size, but Rikki tells her to chill out as she guns the motor.
As they continue their climb upwards, they come across a waterfall. Still leading the way, Emma tells the other girls to mind their step. She then jumps across the water and lands on the other side, and Rikki follows her soon after, but Cleo is scared of following them because it is too slippery, and suggests that there has to be another way. She then slips and falls down a path that leads into a cave. Emma and Rikki rush to where Cleo fell in and see where she had landed.
Night falls as the girls continue their exploration. One of them thinks there is no way out, but Emma finds another passage for the girls to try. Her path brings them to the edge of a pool of water. Taking in the sight, Rikki says "Wow", and on looking up, suggests that it is like the crater of a volcano. Cleo asks if it is going to erupt, but Emma answers that it has been dormant for 20,000 years, so she thinks they are safe. They walk around the edge of the pool, and stooping down, Emma notices some tidal rings, which suggests to her that the pool is connected to the ocean, and may be a way out. She takes off her shoes and dives into the water. Cleo tells Rikki that she is not going to like this.
Later, Cleo calls out to Emma, but Rikki tells her to relax and give Emma a minute. Emma returns to the surface and tells the girls she was right it is approximately a twenty second swim to the reef outside, it is straight through and there is plenty of room for them all to fit. When Cleo looks at where they have to go through, she is scared about the idea, but Rikki points out that there is no other way out, and tells Cleo she can do it, to which Cleo counters that she can't swim. Outside, the light of the full moon is passing close to the crater of the volcano, as Emma tries to reassure Cleo that everything will be fine. Cleo asks Emma how she can be sure, but Rikki tells her to listen to Emma, pointing out that their only alternative is to be stuck down there forever. Rikki stretches a hand out to Cleo, who takes it and allows her to pull her into the pool. At that moment, the full moon appears over the top of the volcano and bathes the girls in its light. Some bubbles appear on the surface of the pool and rise up towards the top of the cone, which leads Cleo to say "Wow", and Emma to remark that it is spooky. She tells the other girls to concentrate and take a deep breath. Emma goes under first, then Rikki leads Cleo along the passage out to help her swim fast enough. All three of them emerge out in the sea, with Cleo suggesting that it was more than 20 seconds, but she is told to relax, with Rikki saying that she is proud of her, and Emma says she knew she could do it. They are then bathed in a searchlight as they are found by the water police, who tell them to make their way to the boarding ladder at the rear of the boat. Emma and Rikki swim toward the rescuing vessel, and Cleo soon follows them.
After the sun rises, Emma heads to the beach for a swim, diving under the water and them coming back up. Suddenly, she looks down, sees some bubbles, and seconds later, finds that she has grown a tail where her legs would normally be. Meanwhile, inside her bath, Cleo finds herself similarly transformed, as her little sister Kim knocks on the door and tells Cleo that she cannot stay in there forever. As Rikki goes for a walk, she gets sprayed with water from a nearby sprinkler, and soon finds herself falling over onto the sprinkler's hose, cutting off its supply of water. She looks back and sees that she also now has a tail.
Later, back as their normal selves again, the three girls are together at Cleo's house describing their experiences and wondering what has happened to them. Rikki asks Cleo if there is anyone else there, and Cleo replies that her father is at work and her sister and mother are shopping. Emma asks what happened to them, and Rikki observes that ten seconds after they touch water, they grow a fin. Cleo adds her observation that it vanishes when they are dry, and confirms that it is the same for Emma and Rikki. They all agree about their appearance, but Rikki is the first to describe them as mermaids, a word that leads Emma to tell her that she is not funny because mermaids don't exist, and she finds the idea too weird.
Cleo forgot that her friend Lewis McCartney was coming to help her with biology. He enters and sees Emma and Rikki with Cleo and asks if he got the time wrong. Cleo confirms that they agreed to 9 o'clock, but tells Lewis that something important has come up, but it isn't so important that he needs to know about it, so she has to cancel their appointment. As Lewis prepares to leave, Cleo asks him if he knows anything about mermaids. He answers "No, not really", and Cleo then sees him out before returning to Emma and Rikki. Rikki thinks that Cleo is crazy for asking Lewis what he knew about mermaids, and Emma points out that if anyone finds out about it, they could be in big trouble. She then adds that something very strange has happened to them, but they don't know how, and they certainly don't know why, to which Rikki says that there is a way for them to find out more - to go back in the water, but it is an idea that Cleo doesn't want any part of. On the other hand, Rikki is keen to go, but doesn't want to go alone, so she asks for volunteers. 041b061a72
