try to close someone’s eyes like a corpse when you’re bored of talking to them
My dad said, “take a picture of us” and I said, “1.. 2.. I just want you guys to realize I’m moving out tomorrow and won’t be here to take pictures of you anymore”
Amy said she trusted me, that I would know the right thing to say on her behalf…
20 curiosities about Finding Nemo
- Finding Nemo is the top selling DVD of all time.
- James Sullivan’s hair and Nemo’s anemone were animated using the same computer program.
- The seagulls (“Mine!”) in Finding Nemo are modelled after the evil penguin from the Wallace and Gromit short The Wrong Trousers.
- Bruce, the great white shark was named after what Steven Spielberg called the mechanical shark in Jaws.
- The scene where Dory and Marlin need to go through the Jellyfish colony contains 74,472 jellyfish, and upwards of 8,000 in any single shot.
- Deb’s alter ego is Flo, a reference to “ebb and flow.”
- The three tiki heads in the fish tank are actually modeled after three pixar employees, Peter Sohn, Nelson Bohol and Ricky Nierva.
- Dory’s nosebleed in the Bruce scene was the first time blood was shown in a Pixar movie.
- The diver’s camera reads “A113,” which is a reference to a room used by the animation department at CalArts - alma mater of a large number of Pixarians.
- And of course, like every other Pixar film, the Pizza Planet truck makes a cameo.
- There’s some debate as to whether this poster of a large mouse on a fork near the bathroom in the dentist’s office is a reference to Ratatouille, which would come out 4 years later.
- There’s a kid in the dentist’s office reading a Mr. Incredible comic book.
- Nemo actually appeared in Monster’s Inc as one of Boo’s toys, two years before Finding Nemo was released.
- If you look closely at the end of Finding Nemo, you can see Luigi from Cars, which would be released three years later.
- The actor who plays Shane Botwin from Weeds is the voice of Nemo.
- The movie originally didn’t start out so sad. The death of Nemo’s mother was told through flashbacks, instead. However, the animators changed this because they “wanted the viewers to understand the overprotective nature of Marlin” from the start.
- The reason the name on the diver’s goggles is P. Sherman is due to the fact that a large part of the film’s crew was Filipino, and “fisherman” apparently sounds a lot like “P. Sherman” in a Filipino accent.
- Pixar has a habit of referencing older Pixar films in their movies. Here’s Buzz Lightyear on the floor of the dentist office.
- The fish that says “Oh my gosh! Nemo’s swimming out to sea!” is named Kathy.
- If you zoom in close enough at the dentist’s office, you can read the diplomas. Here’s what they say.
Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse.
