Wally and Eric visit Fantasy Island (fiction)...

Recommended Posts

I found a “lost episode” of when Wally and Eric visited Fantasy Island to settle their differences...
 

TATTOO- Who do we have as our guests today, Mr . Rourke?

MR. ROURKE- Unlike your little makeshift collection of beauties that you just presented as a band, we have two real American Rock and Rollers...Eric Carmen and Wally Bryson...Have you heard of them?

TATTOO- Of course, I love the Raspberries and I especially love Wally...When the Raspberries broke up, he formed a new band and named it after me, TATTOO...

MR. ROURKE- Well, you may have a special time this evening because they are here to iron out their differences...You see, my friend, for years these two have had a disagreement about writing credits for the song “Go All The Way”...Wally claims that he should have gotten co-writers credit and royalties for his contributions to the song while Eric claims that there was no one in the room with him when he composed this song...Let’s see if we can grant them their fantasy and work out this difficult situation for them...

MR ROURKE- Greeting my friends and welcome to Fantasy Island...

MR. ROURKE- After you get settled in, you are cordially invited to our Fantasy Lounge this evening and hopefully, we can resolve your difficulties...

LATER THAT EVENING...AFTER SEVERAL DRINKS AT THE FANTASY BAR, WALLY AND ERIC, BOTH FEELING NO PAIN, DECIDED TO ADDRESS THEIR DIFFERENCE OF OPINION...

WALLY- Well, Eric, let’s get to the reason that we are here...I feel that I am owed a lot of money because my guitar intro to Go All The Way made the song a hit, so I should get co- writing credits and some royalties...

ERIC- I don’t deny that Wally...It was a great intro...But, you were part of the band and you receive performance royalties, but you did not write the song...I was All By Myself when I wrote  the song but I don’t want No Hard Feelings between us...What is it that you want ?...
 

WALLY...I Don’t Know What I Want, but I want it now...

ERIC...How about if I write you a check for 30 grand...Will that take care of things?

WALLY- Since you are making an offer, I MIGHT AS WELL give in and accept your offer...
 

ERIC- Great...There is a bank here on the island...I’ll write a check to you,  they can cash it and give you your money right now...

THE TWO GUYS HEADED OVER TO THE FANTASY ISLAND BANK

AFTER ERIC WROTE OUT A CHECK TO WALLY FOR THIRTY THOUSAND DOLLARS, , THE BANK OFFICIAL MADE A COUPLE OF CALLS, CERTIFIED THE CHECK AND PAID WALLY 30 THOUSAND DOLLARS IN ISLAND CURRENCY AND THE TWO FRIENDS LEFT,  ARM AND ARM, VOWING TO BE  BUDDIES FOREVER...

LATER THAT DAY, AS THEY WERE READY TO LEAVE THE ISLAND, THE DUO TRACKED DOWN THEIR HOSTS, MR. ROURKE AND TATTOO AND SHARED WITH THEM THE GOOD NEWS...

AFF2599D-BC97-49A8-9C63-312A80B01F9F.jpeg.bd51b4e22a0b96216c02a2eef28ac7e5.jpeg Mr. Rourke raised his glass and toasted the long time buddies and watched them board the plane for the trip back to the mainland...


As the roar of the planes engines became louder, the plane started to ascend into the air with Mr, Rourke yelling out inaudibly...The boys were to soon find out what Mr. Rourke was trying to say to them...

As the plane landed in Cleveland, BF3CD855-DC1F-43D0-9313-9873F981D770.thumb.jpeg.35d8a01bb54c054d61d54a4554ae58d5.jpeg

the boys went their separate ways...Eric went home where his wife had a surprise for him...She had sold the home they had in Ohio, packed everything up and bought a beautiful house in Arizona ...Mrs.Carmen greeted her husband in the driveway of their former home, explained what she had done and the happy couple headed back to the airport to fly to their new home and live their golden years together in Arizona... on the drive back to the airport, Eric  told Amy that they were 30, 000 dollars lighter...Amy had wondered why their account was short, but she didn’t care...It was all in their rear view mirror and they were about to start a new life...

Meanwhile,  Wally received his own surprise...Upon arrival at the airport, Wally visited the international money exchange booth ...73FC30F0-D8A4-4FB5-B6E6-0A14351E88CA.thumb.jpeg.1fb692329c083f9a409b91f80049acb9.jpeg

It was explained to Wally that the money was worthless since Fantasy Island currency is not recognized as legal tender anywhere in the world, except that particular domain...

Wally called Mr. Rourke when he got home and Mr. Rourke reminded him that once a guest leaves the island, the waiver that they had signed upon entering the country was now in effect...No reversal or addendums to the settlement reached on the island by visitors could be “rearranged, revisited or altered”...In essence, the “Party’s Over”...

Wally hurriedly went to Eric’s house, but was greeted by the Patterson family, the home’s new inhabitants...Mr. Patterson explained that the Carmen’s sold them the house and left no forwarding address...

Wally tried to call Eric but the phone was disconnected...

In essence, Eric paid the money, Wally received it, but never got it...but the matter was over and never  really settled...

Wally promised that SOMEDAY, he would get his revenge and said to himself that he would get even with Eric if I ever get my HANDS ON YOU...


Good night and thanks for watching/reading...

I remember that episode. The other story line involved a group of girl friends - Barbie Benton, Charo, Cheryl Ladd ..and Hillary - arriving together on the island to participate in a beer fetching contest.....where the winner was to win immediate entry into The James Harem. .....    ...or maybe that was an episode of Survivor??......I get confused sometimes. : (

Anyway.....good stuff Lew!!!!...I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Pretty sure both of you guys are remembering this from an episode of Love Boat, or was it Gilligan's Island...no, Love American Style.

Yes, that's it- Love American Style:

Upon hearing this, Eric said, "Hey that was my inspiration for writing Go All The Way!" Wally wanted writing credit for the intro; Eric replied, "Here we go again"...

Yes, that's it- Love American Style:

Ahhh, the second season intro that sounds amazingly like the Partridge Family minus David Cassidy.  

That's because it's the same group of singers, etc.

Ironically, the first season intro was voiced by none other than the Cowsills, upon whom the Partridge Family was based.

Is there a pending intellectual property lawsuit against Time as well?

Lew called Susie "Sue".

For that, Susie did rue.

So she got Lew back anew,

By referring to him as ""Lou".

That actually escaped my attention...But James(being the true talent) captured my “imaginary” wrath and turned it into a piece of art...Way to go, Jimmy...

I was hoping they'd get that songwriting thing resolved. Good script-writing, Lew. Ironically, I was just watching, minutes ago, a song they actually DID write together, and one on which they were at their harmonious peak. I kid you not. Truth be told, I looked up a "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)" video based on Matthew's post about Barry Mason.... and when that song ended, this one popped up in one of those "you also may be interested in..." boxes.

LC, Bernie shared this is the 'members' section in 2013! I didn't realize it had been that long ago. It was actually better quality than this one. Upon reading the thread all the way through, I found you commenting on the video, also! Unfortunately, it is no longer there...

Ha! I bet I wrote a very similar response! 

You mean the video Bernie posted is gone, right? The thread should still be here somewhere, though, I'd guess.

Yes, the thread is still there, just the video is missing. It must be from source material- there are no graphics splashed across it and it is better quality than the version you posted.
