Disney Guest and Disney Parks enthusiast and TikToker Kenzie shared a funny interaction between a child and the Disney character Crush from Finding Nemo at the Turtle Talk with Crush show in EPCOT, Walt Disney World Resort. Per Walt Disney World, the show one is wherein Guests can “Gather around a window to the ocean for a conversation in real time with your favorite totally tubular sea turtle.”

In this innocent interaction, a child asked the turtle if he would give the child’s father advice because his “mommy says his dad doesn’t take her on enough dates. So can [Crush] give [the child’s] dad advice because [he] wants more brothers and sisters.”

Crush is understandably initially taken aback, though those in the audience enjoy the humorous moment. Crush thinks about it before changing the topic playfully by asking the dad to “raise a fin” and identify himself. In the funnier follow-up video, Kenzie shares Crush’s response to the child’s question:

Crush tells the kid’s father to take his wife out on more dates and jokingly concludes, “I’m only going to stick with the first part bro,” side-stepping the second part of the kid’s question with finesse. Fans enjoyed this interaction and even said they’d never seen him speechless before. As one fan pointed out in the first video, “It’s not longer ‘what’s your favorite color,’ it’s ‘how can my parents marriage be fixed.’”
