[Drum march plays as Kendall greets her Fusion coworkers. Patriotic music plays while Annie, Babe, Amanda, Di, Colby, Ava, and Greenlee exit the elevator and find Kendall wearing a green Statue of Liberty foam crown and holding a torch.]

Babe: Nice crown.

Kendall: Thanks.

Di: This is necessary?

[Annie sighs]

Greenlee: You've summoned me here? Have you forgotten? I'm your partner. The person that created Fusion while you were out playing babysitter to Petey Cortlandt.

Di: And I'm pretty sure the rest of the country has the day off.

Kendall: Oh, slackers, all of them.

Amanda: The rest of ConFusion is at the beach. Considering I gave my notice --

Kendall: Yes, well, I reject your resignation. Show us what you got and you could be one of us. Plus, I needed an even number.

Amanda: Oh -- well, I feel special now.

Babe: Little Adam was pretty excited to have a picnic today.

Di: Yeah, thanks for inviting me to that -- it was fun.

Babe: Absolutely. You're his family.

Annie: Spike and Emma are really probably missing their mommies, huh?

Babe: Mm-hmm.

Kendall: Don't pull that mother stuff on me. No, no, no. Have you all forgotten about your other family? Fusion?

Greenlee: Yeah, Fusion has two mommies -- we're very PC.

Colby: Um -- excuse me. Do we need to be here for this part? There's already mayo in the potato salad, and if it sits too long, it gets kind of nasty.

Kendall: Just wait, just wait. I hired The Comeback to cater for us today. We're going to need a lot of energy for this.

Greenlee: For what, exactly?

Kendall: Greenlee, I am so glad you asked that. Thank you. Ladies, look around. You all are Fusion.

Ava: Does that include me?

Kendall: Fusion, if she were a person, would be a woman on the edge. On the verge of total fulfillment, or complete desperation. Now, we all think that Fusion Green could be the answer. But we have to prove it to everybody else at our upcoming concept launch in -- New York.

Colby: Oh.

[Ava chuckles]

Babe: So, was that a pep talk? Because if it was, we are revved up and raring to go, right?

Di: Oh, yeah. Oh, my God.

Annie: It's going to be amazing.

Di: Yay, Fusion Green.

Annie: It's going to be amazing.

Babe: Thank you, captain. We'll see you tomorrow.

Kendall: Stop. Halt! Wait. Hold. Ahem. All right. Now -- "this" is green. Vibrant, but alive and peaceful. This is us -- baggage, garbage. Tension and frustration and wanting to tear your hair out.

Babe: Or someone else's.

Kendall: I heard that. Babe is right. She gets a gold star today. There's been way too much fighting. Fusion has taken one emotional hit after another lately. So it's time to come together as a team and heal.

Greenlee: Liar. You said there'd be no touchy-feely kumbaya BS.

Kendall: This is a proactive retreat -- to restore company morale and improve interaction and productivity. All right. Now, no one gets to leave here, unless you have to go to the bathroom. No phone calls, unless it's an emergency or kids. And most of all, please, no drama, no baggage, no fighting. Just teamwork and creative brainstorming.

Di: Oh, my -- oh, my God. You don't look good. You don't look well.

Amanda: Oh --

Di: How do you feel?

Amanda: Am I -- am I clammy?

Di: I think you are clammy.

[Amanda coughs]

Kendall: Ahem -- ladies?

[Patriotic music plays]

Kendall: "We, the women, in order to form a more perfect Fusion, establish interoffice justice and ensure company tranquility, provide fabulous product for all, promote female welfare and confidence, do ordain and establish this as Fusion creative freedom day." Ok, so you guys are going to have to bring that upstairs -- you can set it on the roof -- and this is a schedule of what we need and when.

Ava: Um, she's still in high school.

Kendall: She's also your boss' stepdaughter.

Ava: Yeah, and I'm your stepsister's half sister?

Kendall: Get up to the roof. All right, and the rest of you ladies -- if any of you try to leave, you're toast.

Greenlee: Is this really why we're here -- handholding and yoga-breathing?

Di: Crunchy granola, hug it out -- it's -- it's too bad I shaved today.

Kendall: Ok, you see, that -- that's the wrong attitude, you guys, all wrong.


[Music plays]

Kendall: Ahem.

Facilitator: Welcome to a more productive you.

[Music stops]

Babe: Seriously, that scared me.

Di: Ok, if we just stick with this, we work through it, the margaritas might not be melted by the time we're done.

Greenlee: Ok, but I say we shut Kendall down now and get home even sooner.

Annie: Snide and snotty -- that'll really boost morale.

Greenlee: Ok, well, then let's just blow sunshine. Tell me, do you tape that smile into position, or is just a nervous tick?

Kendall: Ok, stop -- see? This is exactly what I'm talking about. This right here -- stop it. Stop, now.

Greenlee: Isn't it cute how she's always trying to protect you like you're some little bunny and I am an 18-wheeler?

Annie: Oh, you're something on wheels, that's for sure.

Babe: All right, hey, what's going on?

Kendall: Come on, come on, hurry up and change before it's too late.

Ava: Ugh! Fashion people eat, like, six almonds and three things of asparagus a day. Can't we just leave them some carrots and go?

Colby: Keep the salad on the ice, ok, and get the grill started. Try not to spill the drinks.

Ava: Ok, me waitress and soon-to-be bartender, and you are the bus girl.

Colby: Do you have a negative attention span, huh? I'm the boss' kid, remember? You'd get booted the second I rat you out.

Ava: Do it. Go a brat-pack power trip on me. Oh, and tell me how your daddy could buy me and sell me in one minute.

Colby: You don't know jack about my father or me.

Ava: Oh, I know that daddy wuvs his widdle girl.

Colby: Ava, I swear, if you say one more word, I am going to --

Babe: Colby! What is up?

Colby: Hey.

Babe: I cannot believe Mom put you to work today. What's up with that?

Ava: Oh, we love work, and we love your mom, too -- she's the best.

Babe: She is, isn't she?

Colby: Ahem -- suck up.

Ava: Come on, Colby, let's get to work.

Amanda: Ugh! If it were raining, I could almost stand it, but it's gorgeous out.

Babe: Hmm.

Amanda: I could be in a bikini right now. You know, in fact --

Babe: Oh, no, no, no. Please, please, you cannot leave me, I am begging you.

Amanda: This time next week, I won't even work for ConFusion.

Babe: And why are you quitting anyway? Do you have some job lined up that you haven't told me about?

Amanda: Nope. It's just time for a change.

Babe: You're staying -- for me, as a friend.

Amanda: No --

Babe: No, no, even better -- you're staying for the barbecue. Mama sent it, it's awesome. I owe you. Please?

Amanda: Ok! It better be good.

Babe: It will be.

Colby: I can't believe you quit. Are you still freaked out about the kidnapping?

Amanda: J.R. doesn't want us talking about it.

Colby: Yeah, until they find the money and the kidnappers -- right. But, I mean, if you're a mess and you need a therapist --

Amanda: I just need a soda.

Ava: Oh, oh, I got it. Here you go. Someone needs to be a little bit more on top of their game.

Amanda: Thanks.

Ava: You're welcome.

Colby: I was just about to get --

Ava: Uh-huh.

Colby: Forget it.

Babe: You know, just a little tip -- you can still do your job without making your co-workers feel like crud. It's a little thing they're trying to teach us downstairs.

Ava: Ok, I'm sorry. I'll try to tone it down. It's just that I'm really excited because I saw all those really beautiful pictures of the Fusion models in the stairway. So do you guys do, like, a new shoot every week or something?

Babe: Um -- not every week. We do campaigns about four times a year, but then we do peripheral material pretty much all year round.

Ava: Awesome.

Babe: It's fun.

Ava: Isn't this a face that says, "Come on, David LaChapelle, shoot me"?

Colby: Ha!

Babe: Hey, I'm a big fan of big dreams.

Ava: Me, too.

Babe: But for now, you have a day job to do, just like the rest of us. See you, girls.

Colby: Do you need an ice pack for your hurt feelings?

Ava: She didn't say no.

Colby: Well, she didn't say yes. Come on, Av, let me see you work that grill. Come on, you got to own it. Come on, Ava. Let's go, let's go.

Greenlee: Look, clearly the one throwing off the mix is the new bride here. Amazing how productive, peaceful, and altogether green the office was when you were gone.

Annie: Yeah, well, before you got back, nobody ever equated anybody on this staff with trash.

Babe: Ok -- ok, that's enough, , don't you think?

Kendall: All right, see, ladies? The person who joined Fusion as a symbol of dissent is now the voice of reason.

Di: Was that a compliment?

Babe: You get used to it.

Kendall: Ladies, as you can see, I am with child. At some point, I will push this puppy out, and you will be left to fend for yourselves. Now, without me there will be mayhem and bloodshed, and that's unacceptable. This is our chance to get it together. I need to know Fusion will survive -- and not just survive. I mean, this -- this is our chance to make something that we're proud of, and Green is a good start. Ecologically logical, "It's easy being green," conserve and protect yourself -- this is the start of a great campaign. And I don't want Fusion to just last through the season, I want Fusion to last forever.

Babe: I'm in.

Amanda: Does that mean that "out" is an option? Just asking.

Di: Come on, let's get started.

Kendall: Annie?

Greenlee: Oh, please -- she has chronic cheerleader syndrome. Of course, she's in.

Kendall: All right. Well, that leaves you. If you want to leave, that's fine. But just know that life goes on without you. We go on. You really want it like that?

Greenlee: You are one sneaky little -- B. All right, just -- then hurry it up, then.

Kendall: Ok. Here we go.

[Music plays]

Kendall: All right, let's go, guys, let's clear this place out. Come on.

Amanda: Manual labor -- are you kidding me?

Di: Yeah, yeah, "Clear your space, clear your mind."

Greenlee: Oh, it shouldn't be too hard for some people.

Annie: Hey, the bonding is really working already.

Babe: All right.

Annie: Ready, one, two, three --

Babe: Oh, yeah.

Annie: Oh, yeah, that's right. We got it, we got it.

Amanda: Right here.

Kendall: You got it.

Babe: What do you think?

Di: We got it, we got it. Got it? You got it?

Babe: Hey, watch your step.

Amanda: Ah!

Kendall: Yeah!

[Music stops]

Kendall: Ah. All right, good, good, good. We have clear space, clear minds. I think we're ready to go. Everyone, follow directions because we all want the same thing. So, let's do this. Let's bond.

Babe: This is not going to be pretty.

[Music plays as everyone sits on yoga mats]

Facilitator: Now we focus the mind and the body. Let go of stress. Let go of conscious thought. Let your inner voice quiet.

Babe's voice: Whew. Breathe. Quiet. Ugh -- too quiet. Ok, come on, you can do this -- Uncle Stuart tried to teach me. Oh, Little A, making a flag cake -- blueberries and strawberries and whipped-cream stars and --

Amanda's voice: Money, more than ever. All that money from J.R. -- I could do so much. J.R. owes me. J.R. without a shirt -- no, stop it. The way he kisses my -- stop it.

Di's voice: Thank God I got a pedicure. 25 bucks -- Aunt Louise would have a fit, popping tar bubbles in the road, walking back from the park. But this is stupid. Focus on --

Amanda's voice: 5 million. I could've had 5 -- oh. A house and doctors, and she'd always be on her meds. Adam promised Mom I could get it for her. Better lawyers could get her out, and he'd be paying.

[Amanda gasps]

Amanda's voice: Shoes. I could get so many --

Kendall's voice: Months until maternity leave. Ooh -- ooh, you little -- just want me to know you're there, don't you? I never forget. Daddy never -- oh-oh. Oh. Valentine's Day -- that's when you were -- oh, all right, ok. I promise, more muffins. But Mommy has to work. Work's good. Friends are better. Friends who don't kill each other are --

Annie's voice: Just get through the day. Go home to Emma and Ryan. Just get through the day, go home to Emma and Ryan. Deal with Greenlee. Just find a way to --

[Annie sighs]

Annie's voice: I should let it go. Trust what Ryan and I -- stop it. Why can't I just stop? Don't ask -- you know damn well why. Just get through the day, go home to Emma and Ryan.

Greenlee's voice: Giant pain in the -- touchy, feely, and make nice, and just because I love you, Kendall, doesn't mean I want to love Annie. Love -- love -- oh, I love you, damn it, Ryan, and you love me, Ryan. You love me, you have to. He loves me, get it? He loves me.

Annie's voice: He doesn't want you. He doesn't want you. Leave us alone. He doesn't want you.

Greenlee's voice: What about what's mine?

Kendall's voice: Check the books. Set up some press.

[Voices overlap]

Di's voice: Wild child. And what was his name --

Kendall's voice: Had a chance to get huge last time --

Amanda's voice: How can I even look at him?

Kendall's voice: But with really cute clothes.

Annie's voice: Get through the day.

Facilitator: Three, two, one -- that's it. Come out of it, more at peace, more present. You've let the stress slip away, and you're ready for what lies ahead, and what lies ahead is trust. Now is an exercise we call "Wind in the Willows."


Babe: Mr. Voice Man is giving me the willies, I'm sorry.

Greenlee: Ok, he goes, or I go.

Amanda: Can you just shut up already?

Annie: Yeah, no guys allowed.

Babe: That's a good point.

Kendall: All right! All right, all right, fine. Bunch of drama queens.

Babe: Goodbye, creepy

Kendall: All right, here we go. Say bye-bye to Mr. Facilitator. No more.

All: Bye-bye!

Kendall: Ok, so this is called "Wind in the Willows." Babe, step forward.

Babe: Sweet.

Kendall: Ok, now --

Babe: Ahem.

Kendall: Put your arms around your chest like this, and we all gather around her. Now, you have to be straight as a board.

Amanda: Light as a feather, stiff as a board.

Babe: Ooh -- "Light as a feather, stiff as a board."

Kendall: So help me --

Babe: No, help me.

[Music plays as the women take turns falling backwards and being caught]

All: Oh!

Babe: Whoo-ooh!

Kendall: Oh!

Babe: Uh-oh, be on your toes!

Greenlee: Oh!

Amanda: That's it? You just fall back, no warning?

Babe: That's it. Oh, my gosh -- whoa!

Kendall: Yes, yes, that's right, she trusts us. Thank you, Babe.

Greenlee: Ho-ho, a little too easily.

Annie: Well, some people deserve to be trusted.

Amanda: Ok, ok, here I go.

Kendall: Ahem. Any day now.

Amanda: I'm going. Ok, ok.

Babe: Don't worry.

Amanda: Ok, ok.

Babe: Sweetie, we'll catch you.

Di: We got you.

Amanda: Ok.

[Amanda squeals]


Babe: Sorry I stepped on your foot.

Amanda: Ok, it was ok -- but awful, but ok.

Babe: You did it! See, it's not that bad.

Kendall: Ok, good girl. Ok, this is nice. Ladies, can you just -- can you move back a little? I need room to fall.

Di: Uh-uh.

Annie: You're not doing this.

Babe: No, you're pregnant.

Greenlee: So not happening.

Kendall: Uh, you guys are a bunch of babies. A bunch of big babies -- yes, yes, yes --

Greenlee: No! Sly little mama!

Annie: Ok, here I go.

[Music stops when Greenlee doesn't catch Annie]

Ava: By the way, I am model material.

[Colby scoffs]

Colby: Please -- heroin chic is so 1990s. Hmm.

Ava: But spoiled brat is always out.

Colby: Yeah, and just do your job.

Ava: Oh, so you didn't get enough handouts, did you? Oh, Daddy didn't give you your own company when you turned 16? Life is so unfair!

Colby: God -- Ava, you think you're the only one with issues. "Oh, how scary. Look at me -- I'm the street-smart tough girl. The world owes me a favor. And you can tell, because I wear black eye shadow."

Ava: Oh, you think I'm not tough? You wouldn't last ten minutes where I've been, little girl.

Colby: You know, go cry to someone who cares. I don't have to prove jack to you.

Ava: Oh, was it horrible when you hit your credit card limit? Was Mommy mad at you?

Colby: Mom hid me all over the country, because no way in hell I was allowed to see my own father. No friends, no house. Not even time to stand still. Monster Dad might catch up. And then when I decided to see for myself, find out if he was as really bad as she said he was, she cut me off.

Ava: She hurt your feelings?

Colby: Whatever.

Ava: She broke your heart?

Colby: God, Ava, what is your problem?

Ava: You know, my mommy said that she wished I was never born. And then she lit up a smoke, grabbed a beer, and told me to "Move my ass, bitch." I was standing in the way of the TV.

Colby: You're just saying that.

Ava: Yeah. I'm just saying that.

Amanda: Is it lunch yet?

Babe: Oh, good call. Bonding makes me hungry.

Kendall: All right, guys, coming up, we're going to divide into groups of two. So, it's going to be Di and Babe, me and Amanda, and Greenlee and Annie.

Greenlee: No, come on.

Annie: Oh, this is ridiculous.

Di: No, no, no -- listen, no. Let -- let Babe be with Annie. I'll go with Greenlee. I -- I would personally love some personal Greenlee time.

Kendall: Yeah, ok -- listen, you guys. Basically, the fact is that way back when, when we had problems with Amanda and with Babe --

Amanda: Wait, by "we," you mean "you," right? You had problems with us. Di wasn't even here then.

Kendall: All right, the fact is that we're all friends now. Well, all of us except for --

Annie: Subtle, really.

Greenlee: Ok, you know what? Fine. Fine. Let's just get this over with.

Amanda: Officially weirded out.

Di: Yeah, this is where you draw mustaches on us and post the pictures on the web.

Kendall: No, this is where we guide our partners and learn to communicate effectively.

Amanda: Yeah, like when we screamed "Ow"?

[Di laughs]

Kendall: No, this is where you have to learn how to --

Di: To trust each other. Kendall, I'm sorry, but we get it, we get it. Um -- can -- can you lead me to the lounge? It's just that I need a break from this room.

Babe: Ok, take a left.

Di: Ok.

Babe: Walk about five steps.

Di: Mm-hmm.

Babe: One, two --

Di: Here we go.

Kendall: Ok, ok. You are going to make a right.

Amanda: Ok.

Kendall: And just walk I'd say about six steps, slowly. Don't trip over the mat.

Greenlee: You're just loving this, aren't you?

Annie: It's three steps forward.

Greenlee: Into that wall? I don't think so.

Annie: Where are you going?

Greenlee: If you say "forward," I'm going right.

Annie: Uh -- there's a wall in front of you.

Greenlee: Yeah, I'm sure there is.

Annie: Greenlee, stop!

Greenlee: Give it to somebody who gives a --

Annie: Stop!


Greenlee: Oh!

Annie: Oh!

Greenlee: Ugh.

Annie: So much for effective communication. The word was "stop."

Greenlee: The word is "two-faced Little Mary Sunshine"! You did that on purpose!

Annie: Did what on purpose? Made you a narcissistic, paranoid little bitch?

Kendall: Ok, all right! Ok, ok, scratch this one, all right? We don't have to do this game anymore.

Amanda: Annie, can you help me in here?

Greenlee: Yeah -- you know what? I'm not done with my partner!

Annie: Oh! Ow!

Amanda: Annie, get her hair!

Kendall: This is how you guys band together and help Fusion?

Greenlee: Well, I'm bruised. I think she broke something.

Annie: Oh, you never stop working the room, do you?

Kendall: All right, all right -- is this kindergarten? Do I have to separate you two?

Annie: Hey, I'm an adult.

Greenlee: Well, then preach it, granny.

Kendall: All right, all right. You know what? The pamphlet said this might happen. That -- that there would be --

Amanda: Buzz kill.

Kendall: "A welling of emotion and subsequent search for expression."

Amanda: I just thought it was a chick fight.

Di: No, you slap in a chick fight.

Babe: You pull hair in a chick fight. Cheers.

Kendall: All right, you guys, we got to figure something out here. All right, ok, good. Are we ready to move on? Great! All right. Circle time.

Annie: Oh, please, this really is kindergarten.

Kendall: Ok. Now we share a fantasy.

Amanda: Ooh, yeah, baby.


Kendall: From your childhood. Something you wanted when you were a kid, or you wish your childhood self had had.

Greenlee: Ok, you know what? I'm going to hurl, seriously, right now.

Kendall: Oh.

Di: Ok. You -- you want me to go first? You got it. There was this guy named Clayton Webb and his family owned the Webb-Mayron Paper Mill. They had a huge house. You know, tons of money. And if he just asked me to prom, or -- or to the club, you know --

Babe: The club or a cotillion.

Di: A cotillion, right. But if he just asked me just once --

Babe: We would, um -- we'd watch the news, and they would call out the winning numbers, and our numbers were a combination of -- of Mama's birthday and mine. $1 million, just for the two of us. It'd be enough money for -- for us to have a house and -- and for Mama to quit her job.

Amanda: A pill. One pill, just once, and Mama would magically be ok. She'd never have to go to the hospital again, and if she'd had -- had that pill, then my dad would still be --

Kendall: My mother wouldn't have been just a child, and my father wouldn't have been a rapist. And my mother would have loved me from the day I was born.

Greenlee: A sister. Lots of them. Not brothers, because brothers, by definition, are boys. But sisters and girl talk and bunk beds and -- Jack would have been an extra bonus. You know, a dad to keep us all in line. Yeah. Sisters would have been great.

Annie: Oh -- I can't do this one.

Greenlee: Oh, if I sucked it up, you're doing it.

Babe: Once you start, it's not so bad.

Annie: My childhood was perfect. I -- I wouldn't change a thing.

Greenlee: Of course, it was. Ma and Pa Sunshine and their daughter, Annie May Sunshine. Why are you even here?

Annie: First intelligent thing you've said all day.

Di: Why do you have to be such a giant --

Kendall: Wait. Stop, stop, stop. Wait a minute -- I started it, I'll take care of it.

Babe: Why are you so mean?

Greenlee: I belong here. She doesn't.

Colby: I don't know.

Ava: Can you grab me one? Thank you. Got it.

Colby: Oh, are you ready for a -- oh.

Kendall: Maybe this wasn't the best exercise for us. I mean, everyone has their basic horrible childhood issues. Everyone knows my beaten-into-the-ground drama.

Annie: You had a difficult time, and I'm sorry about that. I am.

Kendall: Yeah, but your childhood wasn't so easy, either, was it? I remember a while back you telling me how you had to pick yourself up by your ankle socks. If you're not ready to talk about this with us --

Annie: No, I -- whatever --

Kendall: It's ok.

Annie: Whatever I said, I was exaggerating. I was trying to prove that I could hang with the big dogs. But the reality is, my -- my childhood was fine. If anything, I am the poster child for lack of family drama. Well, except, of course, for Terry, but --

Kendall: You win there.

Annie: Yeah. Lucky me. But I tell you, Greenlee -- she is just -- she's such a --

Kendall: I -- I know. I know, trust me. Would it help to say that it's part of her charm? Right. I promise, she'll grow on you.

Di: So, the party moved up here?

Babe: Cozy.

Amanda: Something came for you downstairs. It's a rush. You'd better take it now.

Annie: There's no mail today.

Amanda: Well, this is special delivery.

Di: Oh!

Kendall: You -- you guys?

All: Whoo!

Kendall: Oh, there you go. You are such a bad influence.

Di: So nice, no?

Kendall: Every single one of you. If I weren't pregnant, I'd be all over that right now.

Babe: But why? Come on. Today is going so well.

Kendall: All right, it's a total disaster, isn't it?

Babe: Uh --

Di: What? I mean, just because we're all up here and Greenlee's downstairs?

Babe: Oops.

Annie: Hey, you think I could put a desk up here? I kind of like it better.

Kendall: No, no, no. Annie, we need you to get along. You must get along. I want to be able to have this baby and not think about this place, just for a little while. In case you haven't noticed, I'm a little bit of a control freak.

Babe: What? No!

Kendall: I want to be able to let go when I have this child. I missed Spike's birth. I didn't get a chance to touch him for such a long time. I want things to be different for this one. I want to have my baby and know that everything's going to be ok, and not worry about my company, and not worry about anything. Just spend time with my two kids and know that my business is safe. And I'm afraid it's not going to turn out that way.

Babe: No worries.

Annie: No worries.

Babe: I know.

Colby: Hey, excuse me, what are you doing? Get back to the burgers.

Ava: Colby, shh. Ladies, excuse me for a moment. I just want to introduce you to the hottest, freshest, fiercest face in cosmetics. She's got sexy eyes, luscious lips, and the rest of her -- mmm! Men want to love her, women want to be her. She's Ava! The Fusion fashionista! Come on, give it up. You can say it -- I'm fabulous!

Colby: Ok -- um -- excuse her. She's joking, kidding. She's getting back to work, now.

Di: Is anybody hungry? I'm starving.

Greenlee: We -- we haven't met. I'm Greenlee. I created Fusion.

Ava: I know. You're famous. And we're practically related.

Greenlee: Hmm. Lily's half sister. The one Aidan Devane found on the street.

Ava: Yes.

Greenlee: Well, since you have so much professional training and experience, you won't be hurt when I tell you that you're exactly what Fusion is not looking for. Right down the list. Wrong eyes, wrong hair, wrong skin, wrong lips. Wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong.

Kendall: No, wait, wait. Stop a second. There is something there.

Ava: See?

Kendall: No. No, no, no. That part is true -- you are wrong in every way. But Lily -- Lily would be perfect for Fusion Green.

Greenlee: But the flashbulbs and the makeup -- do you want to put her through that?

Kendall: There would be hurdles, but we can make this work. She's perfect.

Ava: But her face looks exactly like mine. Annie, I was at your wedding. Everyone except Di thought I was Lily. Now, how can we look exactly the same but I'd be totally wrong? That makes no sense.

Kendall: All right. We -- we don't want a Lily replica, we want the real thing.

Greenlee: You know, if anyone ever develops a hoochie mama cosmetics line, we'll give you a reference.

Di: You know what? Listen, just -- just ignore her.

Ava: Whatever. I get it. It's no big deal.

Annie: You had to grind her down to make her feel like dirt, didn't you? Does that make you feel good about yourself? Do you get a thrill out of that?

Greenlee: She asked for an opinion.

Annie: Not a spike to the head.

Greenlee: Ok, you need to take your perfect little childhood, grow up, and face reality.

Kendall: Ok, that's it! That's it. You want reality? You two are dragging Fusion down. You want to be here, but you won't do a damn thing to make it work.

Babe: You know what? No, they want to go at it, have it out, let them.

Amanda: I thought you were the "give peace a chance" girl.

Babe: Not anymore.

Di: I wouldn't suggest a throw down. Annie's a lot tougher than Greenlee thinks.

Babe: Ok, fine. Then how about -- I got it. A duel with Fusion products, huh? Let's see who really has the Fusion chops.

Greenlee: Well, she just got here, so --

Di: Well, you've been out of the loop for a while, so maybe your mad skills have gone stone cold.

Kendall: All right, all right. You know what? Forget all of this kumbaya crap that I've been pulling on you guys all day, ok? Babe is right. This is about the two of you, so this is what we're going to do. It's going to be Annie versus Greenlee. A Fusion makeup make-off.

Di: Total train wreck material.

Amanda: I can't tear my eyes away.

Babe: Someone grab a camera.

Kendall: All right, time's up.

Greenlee: I think I've captured the essence of Annie.

Annie: I revealed the real Greenlee.

Colby: Ooh.

Kendall: Oh.

Babe: Hmm.

Kendall: Well, brava. Share your work with us, ladies.

Greenlee: Well, I think I've captured the sweet, open, uncomplicated essence of my model. Simplicity, but unclouded with sexual allure, or any deep or emotional thought whatsoever. Basic woman at her most basic.

Annie: What the --

Di: "Easy."

Babe: I have wet wipes in my purse.

Kendall: All right, all right.

Annie: Well, let me show you my impression.

Greenlee: Oh -- are you crazy?

Annie: I call this howl, daring. A kind of "no such thing as bad press," "flash the paparazzi" kind of style. Just short of man-eating and desperate.

Kendall: Ok. All right. Thank you. Thank you very much, ladies.

Amanda: It's like watching the girl who comes in with her friends sober from work, and leaves, gets loaded with the bad boy whose name she doesn't know.

Babe: Does that really happen?

Di and Amanda: Oh, yeah!

Amanda: The sober/drunk, nice/naughty thing.

Babe: Oil and water.

Amanda: Girly and Goth. Iced tea and cosmos.

Babe: Day to night.

Amanda: That's it.

Babe: Oh, my God, you two, come here! Oh, you guys just found Fusion's next big thing! This is it, this is it. This could be our next campaign after Fusion Green. Maybe the winter campaign.

Amanda: The day to night shift.

Kendall: Ok, all right. This is good, this is good. Two compacts?

Babe: No -- one compact.

Amanda: Day on one side, flip it over --

Kendall: Night on the other! All right!

Colby: Hey, I'd buy it.

Greenlee: Ok, it needs work.

Annie: God, you can't give anybody props or credit, can you?

Greenlee: It has promise.

Annie: It'll be huge.

Greenlee: With a lot of work!

Kendall: All right, obviously. Ok, we -- listen to me. Yes, it needs work, and -- and concentration and focus and devotion, and who better to do that than the two women who inspired it?

Di: Ah. Thank you.

Annie: I don't know what you mean.

Di: Yes, you do.

Annie: No, I don't.

Greenlee: You're delegating to me?

Kendall: We need you. We need both of you together. Take all of that crazy fire that you guys have and make it work for us.

Greenlee and Annie: No!

Babe: No. No, no, no, no. I'll be the one to say no to that, because you heard her. Fusion needs you.

Kendall: Mm-hmm.

Di: It could be huge.

Amanda: Can we watch you guys again? That was a lot of fun.

Kendall: All right, all right. Listen -- ok, first thing tomorrow, Di, Babe, and myself, we will work on Fusion Green, and Annie and Greenlee will bang out concept and development for day to night. No more dragging us down, guys. You two are going to boost us sky-high. Thank you, darling. All right, come on.

Amanda: Whoo-hoo!

Di: Here we go.

Babe: To Fusion!

Amanda: Oh, look.

[Flutes play "Yankee Doodle" as fireworks explode in the sky above Fusion's rooftop]

Annie: Oh!

>> On the next "All My Children" --

Jonathan: Have dinner with me tonight.

Ava: Excuse me?

J.R.: I'm still a part of Chandler.

Adam: Tell that to Slater. He's your boss.

Kendall: I have an important question for you, Lily, and please think about it, because your answer may change both of our lives.
