Singers: Fusion what women want Fusion what women want today
Greenlee: By tomorrow, we'll know the Face of Fusion. Yeah, we flew the five finalists in. Uh-huh. There will be interviews and photo shoots and -- yeah, yeah, we're throwing a big blowout tomorrow night to announce the winner. Excuse me? America will love the winner, whoever they choose. I mean, they voted for him, didn't they? Who would I choose? No comment.
Kendall: Hi. I'm calling to confirm our interview for the Face of Fusion contest. You want them topless? You're a radio station. Oh, very funny. So, we're on schedule? Great. They'll be there. You want to interview me, all by myself? I did not kill my husband!
Simone: Oh, who loses a contestant in Connecticut? If he doesn't turn up, that's it. That's it, Simone. It's done. You're toast. You're over. The contest will wreak. Your career will be in the sewer. Hmm. All right, deep breath. Yes, peaceful thoughts. Ok, be calm. Damn. Oh, God. I've got to think about something else. Something like -- whipped cream.
Simone: Mia, what's up?
Mia: Oh, my God, you are not going to believe what just happened. The health club is closed down indefinitely.
Simone: Hmm. Well, I never really went all that often, anyway.
Mia: Simone! We have a photo shoot scheduled there for first thing tomorrow morning with all the finalists.
Simone: Yeah, I know.
Mia: The manager said that the water pipes burst.
Simone: Yeah --
Mia: We're the ones that are all washed up. What the hell are we going to do?
Simone: You know what? You'll think of something.
Mia: No, no, no, but it's only hours away.
Simone: You know what? I've got to go.
Mia: Listen, no --
Simone: I've got to go.
Mia: No --
Simone: Bye. Bye.
Tad's voice: Hi. This is Thaddeus. I'm not home right now. Please leave a message at the beep. Thanks.
Simone: Why did I do that? Only needy, pathetic, desperate people call this late at night. And I am not one of those people. No, I'm not. Not exactly. It's over, right? Get it through your head, girl. It was just a stupid fling, and now it's over. You got to think about something else, like the stupid contest. Forget about Tad.
Juan Pablo's voice: This is Juan Pablo. Please leave a message, and I will return your call. Ciao.
Greenlee: Juan Pablo, it's me. I'm really sorry that we argued. It was really stupid. Please call me back? Where could he be?
Mia: Oh, thank God, you're awake.
Mia: You are not going to believe what the health club just pulled.
Greenlee: Do you have any idea what time it is?
Mia: Tell me about it. And I have a photo shoot scheduled first thing tomorrow morning with the finalists and no place to shoot.
Greenlee: Mia, give it a rest. We'll deal with it in the morning.
Mia: But listen -- no --
Kendall: Aidan, I've tried you at home a million times, and you're not answering your cell. Can you please, please just call me and let know you're ok? I want to make sure you're safe and that you're not getting in trouble because of me. I'm worried about you.
Mia: Whatever you do, do not hang up on me.
Mia: I know it's late. I know you're probably tired, but please just hear me out.
Kendall: What's wrong?
Mia: Thank you for asking. You are not going to believe what that idiot manager at the health club pulled.
Kendall: Can you believe he wants to dock me for stealing towels?
Mia: This isn't about you. This is about the photo shoot tomorrow.
Kendall: That's not my job, that's your job. I'm going to sleep.
Mia: No --
Kendall: You should, too.
Mia: But listen --
Kendall: Good night.
Mia: Go to sleep? Great. Thanks a lot. How am I supposed to sleep with all this dreck?
Mia: "Dear Mia, I hope this letter finds you well." Jerk. "I hope by now you're able to accept my apology. I never should have let you find out about Carolyn the way that you did. I'll always regret what happened." Yeah, well, guess what -- I have my own regrets, too, pal. I regret the day I ever met you, Jake Martin. I hate you. I hate all men. That does it. I'm going to get some shuteye.
Singers: Dream dream, dream, dream dream dream, dream, dream. When I want you in my arms, when I want you and all your charms, whenever I want you, all I have to do is dream; dream, dream, dream. When I feel blue in the night, and I need you to hold me tight
Greenlee's voice: It's time.
Mia's voice: Time to choose.
Simone's voice: Choose a winner.
Kendall's voice: Choose the man you want.
Simone's voice: Choose.
Mia's voice: Choose.
Greenlee's voice: Choose.
Kendall's voice: Choose.
Singers: Dream dream, dream, dream dream dream, dream, dream
Mia's voice: Choose. Choose your man.
Greenlee's voice: Ladies and gentlemen, good evening and welcome to the event you've been waiting a lifetime for -- at least, Mia's been waiting that long. Mia, you ready?
Mia: I'm ready.
Greenlee: Choose your winner, Mia.
Mia: Choose my winner? Wait. I don't understand.
Greenlee: This is your contest, Mia. You choose the winner -- the man you want!
Mia: Choose a man? No way. I don't even want a man. I hate all men. Oh, my God, I don't want to dream this.
Greenlee: That's great. Shall we get started?
Greenlee: Let's rumble!
Kendall: All right. All right, come on over here, Mia. Get on over here. You can do it. Come on. You're cute, you're smart. Come on. You can do it. Come on, now. I'm depending on you.
Greenlee: In the white corner, with a record of zero wins and a hell of a lot of losses -- Mia "Mad Dog" Saunders! And now the first contender for Mia's heart. He's had her on the mat before. Can he do it again? Ladies and gentlemen, Ryan "Six-Pack" Lavery.
Greenlee: Ryan and Mia went bust real fast. He was sleeping with her sister. He missed his dead wife. Mia never stood a chance. But she's ready for a rematch.
Kendall: Oh, no. No, you don't. Come on. Go, go!
Greenlee: Understand the rules?
Greenlee: Good. Keep it clean. Touch them up.
Ryan: Whoo! Hey, hey! What are you afraid of, Mia?
Mia: I'm not afraid. I'm just not putting up with you.
Ryan: I'm right here.
Mia: You chose a ghost over me.
Ryan: I had issues! We both did. But you know what? Now -- now things are so much different.
Mia: No, they're not different. You're still arrogant.
Mia: And cocky.
Mia: And impossible.
Ryan: And very good-looking. And you, Mia -- you're still so beautiful.
Mia: I am? So what's different?
Ryan: Simone? This! I have enough money to rule the world, Mia! What more could you possibly want?
Ryan: Oh, that's good because there is so much more to the package.
Greenlee: One, two, three, four --
Mia: No, I'm ok. I'm ok. I'm ok. I don't want your money or your baggage!
Mia: Or your ego. Or your six-pack.
Ryan: But we could be so good together.
Mia: When you're not mixing it up with your ex-fiancée and Greenlee? No. I'll pass.
Greenlee: One down, more to go! Our next contender had Mia on the ropes for more than a few rounds. Ladies and gentlemen, the honorable Edmund Grey!
Greenlee: Edmund and Mia could have been a forever kind of thing, but his wife suddenly remembered she loved him, and he forgot all about Mia. Talk about a blow!
Mia: Wait! Hold on. Wait a minute. Edmund can't be a finalist. He's married to Maria.
Greenlee: But you still want him. So get in there and choose!
Mia: Where are your gloves?
Edmund: I'm a lover, not a fighter. Kung pao? Fortune cookie?
Mia: Stop being so nice to me. You got the love of your live, and I got zilch -- again. So just go your own way. I accept that. I have no choice.
Edmund: Then why do you still dream about me?
Greenlee: Outclassed again. But we're just getting warmed up, folks, because the next contender for Mia's love is a man who's known for his weaving and his bobbing -- Dr. Jake "The Snake" Martin!
Greenlee: Dr. Jake proposed to Mia but got caught sparring with someone else. The lightweight left town and came back with a brand-new fiancée. But Mia still wants a rematch!
Mia: What are you doing here?
Carolyn: Jake sent me. Wait. I had hoped -- we had hoped for your blessing.
Mia: What? My blessing?
Carolyn: Jake feels really bad about everything that happened.
Greenlee: Well, no parade of finalists is complete without the Tad "The Cad" Martin! The one, the only heavyweight romance champion of the world!
Singer: Tad the cad he's bad so bad he's Tad
Mia: You just go back to where you came from. I don't need this.
Tad: Not a chance, Mad Dog. Time for a rematch. That kiss on the beach was just the first round. Hold on a sec. Little help, lamb chop. How come I'm the only guy in the dream sequence who gets a body shot?
Mia: Because I whiffed on the other three and I want justice.
Tad: I thought you wanted a guy. Have you ever thought about charm school? Huh? Anger management? Stamp collecting?
Singer: He's Tad the cad
Mia: That's it. I am ending this now. There is no guy for me. There never will be. Oh, no. I don't stand a chance.
Juan Pablo: Yes, you do, Mia. You can win any man you want if you give up the fight.
Singers: Dream dream, dream, dream when I want you in my arms
Kendall's voice: Choose, Kendall. Choose your winner.
Singers: All I have to do is dream
Kendall: Welcome, America, to the Face of Fusion finale. As the owner of Fusion, Enchantment, and Chandler Enterprises, it is my privilege to host this gala. You may be asking yourself, how does she do it? How does she juggle three major companies and still keep her little figure? What's going on? I didn't order this. Whoever is responsible, you're fired! This is ridiculous, insane. What are you doing here?
Mia: We're sorry for the interruption.
Simone: Yes, we apologize for the inconvenience.
Mia: But we must stop the show.
Kendall: This is my show. You can't stop my show.
Mia: Oh, but we can.
Simone: Because, you see, Mrs. Cambias, you're in trouble.
Mia: You could lose everything.
Kendall: Everything? Why am I here?
Greenlee: Can I get you anything, Mrs. Cambias?
Kendall: Yes -- answers. What am I doing here?
Simone: Your husband has been murdered, and your inheritance is in question. Would you like me to remove all the raisins from your muffin?
Mia: Pencil? You do realize you're the number one suspect in the murder investigation. Oops. No sharp objects for you.
Greenlee: Black, two sugars. Not only that, Ryan Lavery could take away all of your companies and the Cambias billions, leaving you with nothing -- again.
Kendall: No. That's not going to happen.
All: Whatever you say, Mrs. Cambias.
Greenlee: But just to be sure, you need to choose your rescuer.
Kendall: I don't need to be rescued.
Simone: Oh. Who are you kidding? You've wanted your own white knight all of your life.
Greenlee: And you've bagged a few, but now it's time to commit.
[Knock on door]
Simone: Your first appointment.
Kendall: I don't have any appointments.
Mia: Oh, but you do. A Mr. Boyd Larraby.
Boyd: Mrs. Cambias.
Kendall: What -- what is all of this?
Boyd: My qualifications, of course.
Kendall: I don't need to be rescued.
Boyd: And I think you'll be quite impressed. Now, the key to understanding your needs is understanding this.
Boyd: Allow me to illustrate. Now, this area represents the amount of attention you would like to get from your mother. And this -- well, this is the amount of attention you actually receive from her.
Kendall: What is the point of all of this?
Boyd: You crave acceptance, love, connection. You'll do anything to get it. And I have been there for you every step of the way. For example, when you worked for Erica, when you started Fusion, when you --
Kendall: Don't! I get the picture.
Boyd: I accept you for who you are, and I think I've proven that you can depend on me. As you'll note, I quit my job for you.
Kendall: You got it back.
Boyd: I unstuck Simone's lips.
Kendall: Those were Simone's lips.
Boyd: Hey, I did it for you. I pretended to be a lawyer. I even went so far as to --
Kendall: Don't say it.
Boyd: Well, I think we both know what lines I've crossed. I've saved you in the past. I can save you now.
Simone: Is it Boyd, Mrs. Cambias?
Mia: Is he the one?
Greenlee: I'd double-check his references if I were you, Mrs. Cambias.
Ryan: I don't need references, and I'm sure as hell not here to pitch for the white knight gig.
Kendall: Wait a minute, whose dream is this?
Ryan: Yours -- for now. But soon you'll realize that everything that you think is yours is actually mine. Get used to it.
Kendall: No, I'll never get used to it because it's not going to happen.
Ryan: You want to be saved, Kendall? Because I'll save you -- from being penniless. I think you remember what that felt like. All you have to do is admit that I've won.
Kendall: No, you haven't won because I will never give away what's mine, especially to you.
Ryan: You gave it up before. It was good, right? You might as well just do it now, girl, because I know you still love me.
Kendall: I -- I --
Greenlee: You're early, Mr. Devane.
Kendall: Aidan, what are you doing?
Aidan: You need protection, Kendall, and you won't get it from a lab rat or a six-pack.
Kendall: I can take care of myself.
Aidan: But your methods stink. What, with the poisoned flowers, the snake, the knife -- you need me, Kendall.
Kendall: I don't know what you're talking about. I don't --
Aidan: If stay with me, I'll keep you safe. Especially from the likes of him.
Kendall: No, I don't know what you're talking about. Nobody can get to me. The dream's over, ok? It's over. I don't -- I don't want a white knight. I don't need to be rescued. I just want a man who will love me.
Kendall: Just love me.
Singers: Dream dream, dream, dream when I feel blue in the night and I need you
Simone's voice: Choose, Simone. Who is the man you want?
Singers: All I have to do is dream
Simone: Where am I? Toto? I have a feeling this isn't Fusion anymore. Oh, yoo-hoo! Excuse me. I'm completely lost. Could you help me?
Tad: Hello, Simone. Nice pumps.
Simone: Tad, is that you?
Tad: It certainly is. And you're very lucky. Not every girl gets to see the wizard.
Simone: Oh, Tad, I'm so glad you're here. I need to get to the Face of Fusion contest. Do you have any idea which way -- I just I needed directions. I wasn't expecting that. I've got to go to SOS. The contest -- they're waiting for me.
Tad: So let them wait.
Simone: But if I stay -- we're just a fling. No sunset, remember?
Tad: Sunset? Simone, look around. You're not in Kansas anymore.
Simone: I got to go. I've got a job to do, a contest to run. I have a career that's very important to me.
Tad: Simone, have a heart. Think about it. Nothing is more important than this.
Liza: Hello, my pretties. Admit it, Simone -- your heart wants more than a fling. You want someone to love you.
Simone: I don't.
Liza: But you're afraid to admit it because if it doesn't work out --
Tad: Nice hat. Does steam come out the top of it? Why don't you take a hike there, witchiepoo.
Liza: Buzz off, wizard. This is a dream. In a dream, the unconscious reveals the truth.
Tad: When Freud died, I don't remember anybody telling you to carry on.
Liza: You know I'm right. No more quickies. No more waiting by the phone waiting for it to ring. No more eating ice cream late at night.
Simone: I have a sweet tooth.
Tad: Yeah, I've got one of those myself.
Liza: You want something serious. God knows why you want it with him. But you can't build a relationship based on whipped cream.
Tad: You can give it a shot. You know, there's a house scheduled to come through here anytime. Why don't you take off before somebody dumps a bucket of cold water on you.
Tad: There we go. Now, where were we?
Simone: Maybe Liza's right. Maybe I really don't want something casual. I mean, maybe I'm just really scared to admit it. I mean, maybe I'm just scared that if we cranked it up to something serious, maybe it would just turn disastrous.
Tad: Simone, shut up.
Tad: So I can do this.
Singers: Dream dream, dream, dream dream
Greenlee's voice: Your turn, Greenlee. Choose the man you want.
Singers: Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream
Greenlee: Welcome to the finale of the Face of Fusion contest and a night you'll never forget.
[Cheers and applause]
Greenlee: Tonight will be packed with excitement, glamour, finger-tingling, toe-curling, heart-stopping romance. Why did I say that? That's not what I wrote for myself. As I was saying --
Greenlee: That's not the music that I chose. Hey! Hold the music. What am I doing? What's with this hat?
Greenlee: Juan Pablo. Why are you here?
Juan Pablo: Because I choose you.
Juan Pablo: Are you ready?
Greenlee: This must be heaven.
Juan Pablo: It's Milan.
Greenlee: It feels like heaven to me.
Juan Pablo: It's only the beginning. What are you thinking?
Greenlee: How did you get that horse into SOS? Never mind. It's my dream. I did that. Juan Pablo, I said horrible, horrible things to you. I know you're not trying to control me, and I know you don't want to trap me. It's just whenever I get scared, I --
Juan Pablo: There's nothing to be afraid of. Don't apologize. I know your heart's been broken too many times. I will win your heart and put the pieces back together if you let me.
Greenlee: Look around. There's no one else. You have my heart.
Juan Pablo: I want to make love to you.
Ryan's voice: Greenlee. Greenlee.
Ruth: That is so lovely. Joe, darling, take a picture for the album.
Joe: Oh, yeah, yeah. That's a keeper.
Ruth: And so are you, my dear. Are you hungry?
Joe: Ruth has brought quite a spread, including the famous Martin coffee cake. You do cook, right?
Joe: Oh, I almost forgot. It is my honor to present you with this key.
Joe: Welcome to the family, to our home, and to our hearts.
Simone: Family? Me?
Joe: Well, we know you told Tad you wanted to keep it simple.
Simone: That's right. Right, no strings.
Ruth: Oh, yes. Yes, dear, but we know that you didn't mean it. Because our Tad is so irresistible.
Joe: And we're with you all the way. Why don't you call me "Dad."
Jamie: So does that mean I have to call you "Mom"?
Tad: Easy there. What did I tell you about poaching?
Jamie: But, Dad --
Joe: Listen to your father.
Ruth: Now, when is the big day?
Simone: The big day?
Ruth: The wedding. That is what you're dreaming about, isn't it?
Simone: Oh, no. No, you've got it all wrong. I just was asking Tad for directions, that's all. Right, Tad? Tad? Well, where did he go?
Jamie: He heard the word "wedding," and he shot out of here like the sky was falling.
Simone: Casual, Simone. You got to keep it casual, or you're going to lose Tad for sure.
Mia: I don't want to fight anymore. Oh, my God. Aidan?
Juan Pablo: Why did you want me to wait? Greenlee?
Greenlee: I'm sorry. I thought --
Juan Pablo: You have doubts?
Greenlee: No. None. Make love to me.
Ryan: Is there a problem?
Greenlee: That was -- wait a minute. What did I dream about?
Boyd: Choose me, Kendall. I'll save you from yourself.
Ryan: No, no, choose to cooperate, Kendall. I'll save you from the poorhouse.
Aidan: Choose me, Kendall, and I'll save you from prison.
Ryan: Who's it going to be, Kendall?
Michael: Sorry, fellows. She already chose me. You're coming with me straight to hell.
>> On the next "All My Children" --
Adam: Yes -- what the devil are you doing?
Tad: I am stopping you.
Erica: Are you accusing me of murder?
Greenlee: One of these gorgeous men is going to become the Face of Fusion!
