These are some alternate endings of Finding Nemo that never made it to theaters.

Finding Nemo Alternate Ending #1

  • Marlin: This doesn't concern you kids. It was lucky I didn't tell your parents you were out there. (to Nemo) You know you can't swim well!
  • Nemo: I can swim fine, Dad, okay?
  • Marlin: No, it's not okay. You shouldn't be anywhere near here. And I- I was right. You know what? You'll start school in a year or two.
  • Nemo: NO, DAD! Just because... you're scared of the ocean...
  • Marlin: Yes, I know Nemo. But CLEARLY you're not ready, and you're not coming back until you are. You think you can do these things, but you JUST CAN'T, NEMO!
  • Nemo: .........(looks up)....I hate you.
  • (Tad, Pearl, and Sheldon gasp in horror. Marlin jumps back. Cuts to the anemone. Marlin drags Nemo inside but was still angry at him.)
  • Marlin: I can't BELIEVE you said that in front of EVERYONE!!! If you do hate me, you should spend time alone for a while.
  • Nemo: Dad?
  • Marlin: (turns around) What?
  • (Cuts to Nemo, who is dumb from not doing school much, starts swimming upside-down.)
  • Nemo: Is this how you swim properly?
  • (As the camera zooms out the anemone, the words The End appear)

Finding Nemo Alternate Ending #2

  • Marlin: I was right. You know what? You'll start school in a year or two.
  • Nemo: NO DAD! Just because... you're scared of the ocean..
  • Marlin: Clearly, you're not ready, and you're not coming back until you are. You think you can do these things but you JUST CAN'T, NEMO!
  • (Nemo, depressed, looks at Marlin with a serious look on his face.)
  • Nemo: (sigh) Ok, Dad.
  • (Meanwhile, back at the anenome...)
  • Nemo: Where are you going, Dad?
  • Marlin: (pokes his head through the anemone) Just to... get something.
  • (Nemo gives a confused look. A few seconds later, Marlin swam back in the anenome with a strange cone-like object.)
  • Nemo: What's that?
  • Marlin: Oh, since you didn't learn enough school and promised for nothing to happen to you, but you became stupid. So I decided to make you wear THIS! (puts a dunce hat on Nemo)
  • (Cuts to Nemo sitting on a stool looking sad and a little grumpy. Cuts to the ocean floor where the words The End appear.)

Finding Nemo Alternate Ending #3

  • Marlin: You think you can do these things but you JUST CAN'T, NEMO!
  • Nemo: ........(looks up)....I ha-... You know what? I've got a feeling that I want to learn school so I DON'T get stupid, and YOU said nothing will happen to me but get dumb, is that it?
  • Marlin: Well, I don't want anything to happen to you, bu-
  • Nemo: So, ever since that barracuda incident you became nothing but a worried worry wart! I am five years old and I know what I'm doing, Dad! I know that I am your kid, but that doesn't mean you have to make me ditch school, and I'M TOO YOUNG TO BE STUPID! ......I hate you.
  • Marlin: (shocked)
  • (The screen fades to black and the words The End appear.)

Finding Nemo Alternate Ending #4

  • Blue Fish: (gasps) OH MY GOSH! NEMO'S SWIMMING OUT TO SEA!!!
  • (Marlin sees that she was right.)
  • Marlin: (gasp) (turns angry) NEMO! What do you think you're doing?!?
  • (Nemo looks up to the boat. He swims closer with no delay.)
  • Marlin: You're gonna get stuck out there then I'll have to get you before another fish does! Get back here! I said get back here! NOW!!!  STOP!!!  If you take one more move mister...
  • (Nemo just looks at him. Then Nemo raises his fin.)
  • Marlin: DON'T! Don't you dare! If you put ONE fin on that boat... ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME? Don't touch the bo-
  • (Nemo, still glaring, raises his fin higher and slaps the boat.  This made Marlin mad.)
  • Marlin: (gasp) NEMO!!!
  • Tad: .....He touched the butt.
  • Marlin: You just paddle your little tail right back here, Nemo!
  • (Nemo swims close to Marlin.)
  • Marlin: That's right. YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE, YOUNG MAN! Do you hear me? Big, big trouble!
  • (No scuba diver comes up or emerges. Nemo finally swims all the way to Marlin.)
  • Marlin: Come with me, Nemo! To the anenome!
  • Nemo: (sighs) Yes, Dad.
  • Mr. Ray: Uh... Do you need help taking your son back home?
  • Marlin: No, we're fine.
  • (Cuts to Marlin taking Nemo inside the anenome.)
  • Marlin: Up to your room!
  • Nemo: Where's my room?
  • Marlin: It's right up there!
  • Nemo: Oh.
  • (Nemo swims up to his room sadly, then stops when Marlin continues to scold him.)
  • Marlin: And you are going to stay there until I can trust you again, Nemo!
  • Nemo: (sigh) Yes, Dad. (swims all the way up to his room)
  • (Nemo crawls in bed sadly, then the words The End appear.)

  • Dory: Aaah!
  • (Marlin gets knocked out.)
  • Marlin: Ow.
  • Dory: OH, OH! Sorry! I didn't see you! Are... Are you okay?
  • Marlin: He's gone.... He's gone...
  • Dory: There, there, it's alright.

  • Marlin: No, no. They took him away. I have to find the boat!
  • Dory: Hey, I've seen a boat.

  • Marlin: Well...
  • Dory: I forgot to tell you, I have a short-term memory loss. Betcha you didn't know that, huh?
  • Marlin: Call me crazy, but I think my son deserves this.
