‘Cause we were like, “woaaaah.”, and I was like, “woaaaah.” and you were like, “woaaahh…”

[reciting] I am a nice shark, not a mindless eating machine. If I am to change this image, I must first change myself. Fish are friends, not food.
Bruce

How about we play a game?
Dory
All right.
Marlin
Okay, I’m thinking of something orange, and it’s small…
Dory
It’s me.
Marlin
Right!
Dory
[Later]
I’m thinking of something orange and small…
Dory
Me again.
Marlin
All right, Mr. Smartypants…
Dory
[Later]
… It’s orange and small, and has stripes…
Dory
Me, and the next one – just a guess – me.
Marlin
Okay, that’s just scary.
Dory

I promised I’d never let anything happen to him.
Marlin
Hmm. That’s a funny thing to promise.
Dory
What?
Marlin
Well, you can’t never let anything happen to him. Then nothing would ever happen to him. Not much fun for little Harpo.
Dory

[repeated line]
Mine.
Seagulls

[the fish have managed to roll into the ocean in their plastic bags]
Ha, ha, ha, ha!
Bloat
We did it!
Gill
[pause]
Now what?
Bloat

No. No, you can’t… STOP. Please don’t go away. Please? No one’s ever stuck with me for so long before. And if you leave… if you leave… I just, I remember things better with you. I do, look. P. Sherman, forty-two… forty-two… I remember it, I do. It’s there, I know it is, because when I look at you, I can feel it. And-and I look at you, and I… and I’m home. Please… I don’t want that to go away. I don’t want to forget.
Dory
I’m sorry, Dory. But I… do.
Marlin

Hey, Mr. Grumpy Gills. When life gets you down do you know what you’ve gotta do?
Dory
No, I don’t know what to do.
Marlin
[singing] Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. What do we do? We swim, swim.
Dory
Dory, no singing.
Marlin
[continuing] Ha, ha, ha, ha, ho. I love to swim. When you want to swim you want to swim.
Dory
Now I’m stuck with that song… Now it’s in my head.
Marlin
Sorry.
Dory

I’m H2O intolerant.
– Sheldon

Oh, it’s awesome, Jellyman. The little dudes are just eggs, we leave ’em on a beach to hatch, and then, coo-coo-cachoo, they find their way back to the big ol’ blue.
– Crush

THAAAANKKK YOUUUUU SIRRRRRRR.
Marlin
Wow. I wish I could speak whale…
Dory

Okay. Squirt here will now give you a rundown of proper exiting technique.
Crush
Good afternoon. We’re gonna have a great jump today. Okay, first crank a hard cutback as you hit the wall. There’s a screaming bottom curve, so watch out. Remember: rip it, roll it, and punch it.
Squirt
It’s like he’s trying to speak to me, I know it.
Marlin
[to Squirt]
Look, you’re really cute, but I can’t understand what you’re saying. Say the first thing again.
Marlin

Wait a minute! You can read?
Marlin
I can read? That’s right, I can READ!
Dory

He really doesn’t mean it, you know! He never even knew his father!
