''Splash'' is a 1984 romantic comedy directed by Creator/RonHoward, surrounding the fairy-tale romance between Allen Bauer (Creator/TomHanks) and the mermaid (Creator/DarylHannah) who rescued him from drowning as a boy. Allen grew to adulthood, believing the young mermaid he saw in the water was only a hallucination, until she again saves him from drowning - but in doing so appears on the radar of Dr. Walter Kornbluth (Creator/EugeneLevy), an eccentric scientist who wants to prove the existence of mythical creatures like mermaids.

* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling Your Brother Out]][=/=]WhatTheHellHero[=/=]DumbassHasAPoint: Allen was mortified and angry when he finds out Madison, the one person he has come to love, is a mermaid. He starts rambling about how "people fall in love every day", and he ends up with (in his word) a "fish". However, his PluckyComicRelief brother Freddie berates him for giving up on Madison, tells him that "people fall in love every day" is nonsense, and people can never be as happy as Allen felt when he was with Madison.
