Eventually, she forgot what she was looking for. No one was able to help. And then, she crashed into Marlin. Marlin was far from home too. He was looking for his son, Nemo. Dory helped Marlin crossed the ocean and find Nemo. She went to live with them in the coral reef. She finally had a new home.

One day, Dory went with Nemo’s class in a field trip to see the stingray migration. Dory got pulled into the undertow! When Dory returned to safety, she was flooded with memories of her mom and dad. She remembered where she was from. Dory wanted to go home. Also read, Finding Nemo.

With the help of some old friends, Marlin and Nemo joined Dory on her trip across the ocean. All the way to Morro Bay, where she was scooped up and taken away! Dory found herself in a tank inside the Marine Life Institute. This was where she was from! A cranky septopus- a seven-armed octopus named Hank greeted Dory and agreed to help her find her family. He had three hearts after all.

But Dory was tossed into the Whale Shark pool, which in where Dory met Destiny. When Destiny heard Dory speaking Whale, she couldn’t believe it. “Dory is that you?” Destiny said merrily. When Dory lived in Marine Life Institute, Dory and Destiny had been pipe pals. They used to talk through the pipes that connected their tanks.

Destiny knew where Dory had grown up! “Your Whale has gotten really good!” Destiny said. “Thank you!” said Dory. Hank soon joined them. Dory told Destiny and her neighbor, Baily, a beluga whale that she was looking for her family. Destiny told Dory to take the pipes to the Open Ocean exhibit. That was where she would find her family.

Dory was worried that she would get lost in the pipes, so she found another way. Hank and Dory rolled, swam and swung across the institute to the Open Ocean exhibit. Dory was said to say goodbye to Hank. She would miss him. But he wanted to go to Cleveland. “You’ll forget me in a heartbeat! Three heartbeats! Now go, find your family,” said Hank.

Dory asked around for help, but no one knew where her family was. Then, she saw something. Dory found her house, but it was empty! Suddenly, Dory was filled with memories. She remembered her mom and dad hugging her. She had to find them. Dory spotted a purple shell in the distance.

As she swam toward it, she met a crab who told her if she went through the pipes,  she would find her parents. She followed the directions and ended up in the ocean. She was all alone again. Dory worried that she’d never find her way home. Then she spotted another shell and another.
