His name is Jean-Michel Cousteau! [dramatic chords] His father's name was Jack something, and like his father, Jean-Michel believes by working on things like Finding Nemo he, "can reach a far larger audience through entertainment in popular media than through innumerable press conferences, summits and reports. That is not to say that prestigious conferences and notable studies are irrelevant. They are critically necessary to validate the condition of the world’s oceans and bring opinion leaders together to share ideas and shape the collective political will." With this new sea-lebrity (haha! get it?), he hopes to help young people change the world. ...Well I just thought that was like totally rad and wanted to share with the virtual blue.

There ain't no such thing as Free Willy. There's always a price to pay.

Wasn't Willy a whale? Hey! I speak whale!

Ooh okay this one's a toughie. I think he said either he wants the fog to free waterfalls or he asked us do dogs pee on brick walls?
