She just kept swimming...(taglines)
  • For a guy with three hearts, you're not very nice.
  • Just keep swimming!
  • [to a bunch of dead fish] Sorry, gotta blink. How do you hold your eyes open that long?
  • MY FAMILY!! I REMEMBER MY FAMILY! [swims really fast] They're out there somewhere! I have to find them!
  • [As a baby] Hi. I'm Dory. I suffer from short-term remembory loss.
  • [sleeping] Don't cry, mommy. Don't cry...
  • I like sand. Sand is squishy.
  • What if I forget you? Would you ever forget me?
  • I-I suffer from short-term memory loss.
  • Somewhere out there is my family. Please, Marlin. I can't find them on my own.
  • Sigourney Weaver is going to help us!
  • [last line, about the drop off's view] Yep. Unforgettable.


  • thomas jefferson, you are about to find your parents. And when you do that... you'll be home.
  • [to Crush] I'm gonna be totally sick!
  • Our friend got taken into whatever this place is.
  • Those are sea lions, they are natural predators. They could pounce at any moment.
  • She should just pick two and let's go. [Nemo: Dad.] What? I'm kidding. It's a reunion.
  • [about thomas jefferson] Ever since I met you, you showed me how to do stuff I never dreamed of doing. Crazy things. Outsmarting sharks, jumping jellyfish, and finding my son. You made all that happen.
  • [to Nemo watches Arthur Rides the Bandwagon on TV] Nemo, this is one thing but not quite anyone else, that is not quite another one.


  • Does this mean we have to say goodbye... to Dory?
  • [about Dory; deleted scene] Dad, Dory's sleep swimming. She's talking in her sleep.
  • I trust Becky. [Marlin: You trust Becky? Becky's eating a cup!]

  • [introducing to Dory] Name's Hank.
  • That's a hard one, kid.
  • So, give me your tag!
  • And steer clear of people, will you? Especially kids! I don't want to be touched!
  • I just want to live in a glass box alone. That's all I want.
  • Hey, you.
  • No! Your memory isn't working! You can’t remember anything! It’s probably how you lost your family in the first place!


  • Holy Neptune, she's not alone!
  • Now I know you're talking about me.
  • This is amazing!
  • Still not clear... Still not clear...
  • It’s your destiny, Destiny.
  • [repeated line to Destiny] Wall.

  • Bailey, you've gotta use your echolocation!
  • Sorry. Not a great swimmer. Can't see very well.
  • [speaking whale] Thank you...!
  • You and I were friends!
  • We were pipe pals!
  • [trailer only] It was so much fun, because I'd tell you a story, and then you'd completely forget it, and then I'd get to tell it to you over and over again.
  • Your head is supposed to be big. You're a beluga.
  • [speaking whale] Hang on, Dory!
  • Don't bail on me, Bailey!

Mr. Ray

  • Well, you made it!
  • And we'll stop right there.
  • I feel a migration song comin' on! [holds note for a long time] OH...!


  • OK, OK. We'll pretend to be the other kids now. Hi Dory!
  • You found us. Oh, honey, you found us and you know why you found us? Because you remembered. You remembered in your own, amazing Dory-way.


  • Ahoy there! Do you want to play Hide-and-Seek?
  • No, no. Not Daddy. I'm the nice fish who wants to be your friend, okay?


  • Sick Fish: [repeated line] Me? Help you? AH-CHOO!!
  • Sigourney Weaver: I'm Sigourney Weaver. Thank you for joining me.
  • Marine Life Institute Female Rescuer: [repeated line] No respect for ocean life.


[first lines]
Baby Dory: Hi, I'm Dory. I suffer from short-term memory loss.

[flashback of the first film, when the boat moves away and Dory meets Marlin]
Marlin: [first words of the first film] A white boat! They took my son! [Dory swims towards him] My son! Help me, please!
Dory: [she and Marlin running towards each other] Look out! [they bump into each other; Marlin flies into a rock and lands on the ground]
Dory: Oh, oh, sorry! Are you OK? There, there, it's all right. It'll be okay.
Marlin: He's gone. No, he's gone. He's gone. No, no, they took him away! I have to find the boat!
Dory: A boat? Hey, I've seen a boat!
Marlin: You have?
Dory: [132 minutes later] Uh-huh. This way! It went this way! Follow me!
Marlin: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much!

[Marlin is riding Crush in the East Australian Current.]
Marlin: Totally sick! Totally sick!
Crush: I know! Isn't it great?
Marlin: No! I'm gonna be totally sick!

Marlin: Dory, these crabs are locals! And I get the feeling they're shushing us for a reason. You might wake up something dangerous!
Dory: Are you talking about like something with one big eye, tentacles and a snappy thing?
Marlin: Well that's very specific, but something like that, yes. You just, in general, don't want to--
[Dory, Marlin, and Nemo see a giant squid behind them as the crabs hide.]

Nemo: I trust Becky.
Marlin: [flatly] You trust Becky. Becky's eating a cup!

Dory: [to a bunch of dead fish] I'm sorry. I gotta blink. How do you hold your eyes open that long?

Marlin: [to Nemo] Nemo, that doesn't even make any sense to do, but I'm not going anywhere until find it Dory.

Marlin: Nemo, I think we should devise an alternate plan. One that involves staying in the water and someone sane. Because this bird, this bird... This ain't the bird!
Nemo: That's fine, Dad, and in the meantime, Dory will just forget us. Like you said, it's what she does best.
Marlin: [Sighs] Fine. [he looks at Becky] Uh, okay. Look her in the eye. Which eye?
Fluke: Just pick one, mate.
Marlin: Becky. [Becky shakes her head, She looks at Marlin with her Red Eyes] Ooh, ooo-roo, ooo-roo, Becky. [Becky Squawks, She flies and landed on Marlin on the Water] Okay. This is all great.

Bailey: Still not clear. Still not clear...
Destiny: You don't have to say when it's not time...
Bailey: Not...
Destiny: Just tell me when it is time!
Bailey: Okay, here we go. And, wait!
Destiny: [flounders in the water] "Here we go, wait." Are you serious?
Bailey: Okay, on the count of 3...
Destiny: Don't count. Just say, "Go."
Bailey: [shouting] Go! Now, now! Do it! Do it!

Nemo: Dad, does this mean we have to say goodbye to Dory?
Marlin: Yes, Nemo. We do.
[Dory humming]

Marlin: She should just pick two and let's go.
Nemo: Dad.
Marlin: What? I'm kidding. It's a reunion.
Dory: Mom! Dad! Where are my parents?
Male Blue Tang #1: Dory? Are you really Jenny and Charlie's girl?
Dory: Yes, I am! That's me! Where are they?
Male Blue Tang #2: Well, Dory... Well, right after you disappeared, they thought you... They thought you must've ended up here in quarantine.
Dory: Uh-huh.
Hank: Come on, come on, come on!
Male Blue Tang #2: And so, they came here, to look for you.
Dory: They're here! Where are they?
Female Blue Tang #1: Dory, that was years ago.
Dory: Huh?
Female Blue Tang #2: They never came back.
Marlin: Oh, no...
Female Blue Tang #2: You see, Dory, when fish don't come back from quarantine, it means... they're not...
Dory: What?
Marlin: Dory... They're gone.
Dory: [gasps] They're... dead?

Bailey: Oooh! There's no way out. It's over! They're going to fish jail! Ooooh! Wait. Oooh, Oh, no. Oooh. Get back! Incoming!
[The Marine Life Institute truck careens over the cliff with Hank, Dory, and the fish in it. Everything goes in slow motion as Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" plays, as the fish fall out of the truck, and into the ocean. Fluke and Rudder are delighted.]
Fluke and Rudder: Fish! [a large fish knocks them into the water]
Sigourney Weaver: What lies before you represents the third and final of part of the Marine Life mission. Rescue, rehabilitation, and release.
Charlie: Come to Papa!
[Hank and Dory splash into the water, followed by the truck.]
Sigourney Weaver: I'm Sigourney Weaver. Thank you for joining us.

Dory: Hey, Marlin.
Marlin: Oh, hey. Hello, Dory.
Dory: You alright? You look worried.
Marlin: No, no, no. I'm... I'm fine. It's... It's how I always look.
Dory: What?
Marlin: Well, I just... (chuckles) You did it.
Dory: (gasps)
Jenny: Yay!
Charlie: You did it, kelpcake!
Jenny: Yes!
Baby Dory: (laughs) Did what?
Jenny: Sweetie, you just followed the shells all the way back home!
Baby Dory: Oh my gosh! I did? all by myself?
Jenny: Yeah.
Charlie: Do you know what this means, honey?
Jenny: It means you can do whatever you put you mind to, Dory.
Baby Dory: Really? Mommy, can I go play with them?
Charlie: Absolutely! Go get 'em, kelpcake!
Baby Dory: (laughs)
Dory: Yeah. I did it. Hmm.
Marlin: Hmm. It really is quite a view.
Dory: Yep. Unforgettable.

[post-credits; last lines]
Peach: Hey guys, wait up! I'm right behind ya!
Gill: You can do it! Just a little farther, that's it!
Gurgle: I am truly going to vomit!
Gill: Alright, gang. Good work.
[The Tank Gang cheers.]
Deb (& Flo): Oh, look Flo. We made it!
Gill: We won't have anymore problems from here on out!
[The Tank Gang cheers again, only to get scooped up by two Marine Life Institute rescuers.]
Marine Life Institute Female Rescuer: [as she places The Tank Gang in the cooler] No respect for ocean life.
Bloat: [last line of the film] Now what?
