42 Thoughts I, A Grown-Ass Man, Had While Watching "Finding Nemo" For The First Time

Can't even deal with all these Nemo-tions right now.

Posted on

This week, almost all my friends made plans to watch Finding Dory, then severely ostracised me for not having watched Finding Nemo.

It was "unacceptable," they claimed, and "embarrassing to remain friends at this point".

It was "unacceptable," they claimed, and "embarrassing to remain friends at this point".

I do NOT got a problem, big-eyed blue fish. Just missed a few important moments in my childhood ok?! NOW LET ME MAKE AMENDS AS A FULLY GROWN DUDE.

Pixar

OKAY LET'S BEGIN.

Pixar

1. Which one of these bajillion eggs is Nemo? That's wayyyy too many Nemos, man.

Pixar

2. Not sure what fish this is, but it's scientific name has to be something along the lines of Baaaaadus Newsus.

Pixar

3. NOOO CORAL GODDAMMIT. STAY INSIDE. LISTEN TO YOUR CLOWNFISH WILL YOU?!?!!?!?

Pixar

4. Sigh. RIP Coral and the eggs. Guess this is what happens when you won't stop... clowning around. Hehehe. Sorry.

Pixar

5. So THAT is Nemo. Was that the movie, then? Didn't he just, like, find Nemo?

Pixar

6. Now Nemo's grown up and oddly excited for school. School is overrated, young Nemo. Calm your exuberant fins.

Pixar

7. On the other hand, Nemo's dad needs to start meeting other clownfish already.

Pixar

8. So this is Nemo's school. I wonder who the... class clown is, eh? Heheheheheheheheeee. Sorry.

Pixar

9. Hahaha they called that boat a BUTT. Hahahaha I can see why people like this movie.

Pixar

10. OH MY GOD MARLIN YOU CAN'T JUST SASS YOUR SON IN FRONT OF HIS FRIENDS. BAD UNDERSEA PARENTING.

Pixar

11. See? Turned Nemo into a rebellious clownfish. Now he's gonna go touch the butt.

Nemo's going to start listening to My Chemical Romance anytime now.

Nemo's going to start listening to My Chemical Romance anytime now.

NO WAIT OH MY GOD NOOOOOOO. NEMOOOOOOOO.

Pixar

12. Didn't think it was humanly possible to feel so bad for an animated clownfish. Yet, here we are.

Pixar

13. There's something off about this Dory character. Wonder why she got a whole damn movie to herself.

Pixar

Oh, she's just forgetful. Poor thing. WHY AM I FEELING ALL THESE FEELZ FOR MAKE BELIEVE FISHIES?!

Pixar

14. WHOA. Nothing to see here, just a maniacal shark casually lurking in the background. Not scary at all.

Pixar

15. Vegetarian sharks???? That's like... unfunny clownfish.

Pixar

16. Meanwhile, Nemo's stuck in an aquarium. And THIS is why you don't put fish in an aquarium. They go crazy. They become ... crayfish.

Pixar

17. If I had Jacques, I'd be at work two hours early every day. I need a Jacques. We ALL do.

Pixar

18. So this is what the prospect of an arranged marriage must feel like.

Pixar

19. BLACK FISH DUDE, I KNOW WE'VE ONLY JUST MET. BUT I NEED YOU IN MY LIFE TO MOTIVATE ME.

Pixar

20. Same, bro. Same.

Pixar

THIS IS WHY WE CANNOT HAVE NICE THINGS.

Pixar

21. I feel like Dory WILL forget that address. Write that shit down, my dudes.

Pixar

22. Tbvvvvh I'm kinda digging the name Sharkbait. Finding Sharkbait would be an infinitely funnier movie title.

Pixar

23. Dory still remembers the entire goddamn address and I don't. I stand corrected, and stupid.

Pixar

24. Dick move leaving Dory behind, Marlin. She remembers the address better than everyone, okay?!?!

Pixar

SEE! These fish wouldn't have (literally) pointed out the way if it weren't for Dory. STICK WITH DORY.

Pixar

25. Feel like this will be relevant information in the future, but I also feel like they're going to swim over the trench.

Pixar

SWIM THROUGH THE GODDAMN TRENCH. NOT OVER IT. MARLIN YOU CLOWN. FISH.

Pixar

26. Oh, wait. Awww. This squishy wittle jellyfish doesn't look so ba–

Pixar

MARLIN YOU FOOL.

Pixar

Glad they made it out, though I'm seriously doubting the decision-making abilities of clownfish as a species.

Pixar

27. Speaking of bad decision making, the aquarium crew has planned a wildly complicated escape plan. FISH MAKE SHIT PLANS.

Pixar

GODDAMMIT NOOOOO NOOOOO WHAT KIND OF MOVIE IS THIS.

Pixar

Damn right, you're done. Quit fishin' around.

Pixar

28. THIS STONER TURTLE HAS BEEN ON SCREEN FIVE SECONDS AND HE IS ALREADY MY FAVOURITE.

Pixar

AND DORY IS ALIVE TOO! THANK YOU STONERTLE AND CREW. <3

Pixar

AND THEY'RE COMING TO GET NEMO/SHARKBAIT. ALL IS NOT LOST.

Pixar

29. You know what I always say. It ain't an ocean movie until you get swallowed by a big-ass whale.

Pixar

Believe it or not, that's actually the first time I've ever said that.

30. Well, that's one way of getting to Sydney, I suppose. Must try aerowhaling instead of flying the next time round.

Pixar

31. Holy shit, Darla's about to arrive anytime now, isn't she?

Pixar

Yup, that is hands down the scariest child I've seen in my whole life.

Pixar

32. They're going to enter the dentist's in the beak of a goddamn Pelican, aren't they?

Pixar

33. CHILL OUT, MARLIN, HE'S OBVIOUSLY PLAYING DEAD. DON'T JUST JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS.

Pixar

34. Okay, getting flushed down the sink is far less degrading than being flushed down the poophole.

Pixar

35. BRB while I pick up the thousand shattered pieces of my heart off the ocean bed.

Pixar
Pixar

36. NEMO AND DORY HAVE FOUND EACH OTHER! THANK YOU WHOEVER IS THE GOD OF FISH. I'm thinking Poseidon.

Pixar

YESSSSSSSSS. Faith in good things restored.

Pixar

OMG NOOOOOOOO. POSEIDON ARE YOU KIDDING ME RIGHT NOW?!

Pixar

WHAT KIND OF IRONIC ENDING TO A MOVIE IS THIS?!!?!

Pixar

37. BELIEVE IN HIM YOU PIECE OF SHIT. THAT'S WHAT THE BLASTED MOVIE IS ABOUT.

Pixar

38. SWIM DOOOOOOOWN. YESSSS. #Teamwork #StrengthNoWeakness #ExtremeFishness

Pixar

39. Phew. Now just don't be dead or something, man. I've invested too many emotions into this.

Pixar

40. NEVER THOUGHT I'D BE THIS HAPPY TO KNOW A MAKE-BELIEVE ANIMATED CLOWNFISH IS ALIVE.

Pixar

41. Moral of the story? Just let your kids do their thang, parents!

I think this exchange between Marlin and Crush the amazing stonertle explains it best –Marlin: &quot;But dude, how do you know when they&#x27;re ready?&quot;Crush: &quot;Well, you never really know. But when they know, you&#x27;ll know. You know?&quot;

Marlin: "But dude, how do you know when they're ready?"

Crush: "Well, you never really know. But when they know, you'll know. You know?"

42. All's well that ends whale, I guess. Unless you're in an aquarium. Whatever happened to those poor dudes?

Pixar

OH THEY MADE IT OUT TOO! All's well that ends whale AF right there.

Pixar

OK BRB GOING TO WATCH FINDING DORY NOW OKAY?! OKAY BYEEEEEEEEE. <3 <3 <3
