Disclaimer: Don't own the show, the characters, and Rupert Holmes owns the song.

A/N: I was listening to the top ten billboard hits of 1979, and I just couldn't help myself. It's a great song. Go listen to it. Please review. Criticism is always welcome, especially if it's constructive.

Sitting around Catherine's house, the team tries to come up with their means of payback. After an hour, Warrick and Nick get bored and start looking through Catherine's old cds, 8 tracks, records and cassette tapes. Soon they come across and interesting one.

"Hey, Catherine, I didn't know you were into Rupert Holmes! Me too!" Warrick calls.

"Play it, man!" says Nick.

Soon a familiar tune comes through the speaker; one they haven't heard in at least 20 years, if not more. Catherine and Grissom still remember the words, and sing them under their breathe. Warrick and Nick are too young to remember, but they catch onto the chorus quick. Greg annoyingly belts out the chorus.

"Yes! That's it!" Catherine and Grissom are looking through the paper and are acting like they have just struck gold.

"Oh, this is going to be soooooo nice!" Warrick says, seeing what they find so intriguing.

They have found an add in the personals-but not just any personal add. It is written by none other than Conrad Ecklie.

"So, what do you say we respond to this?" requests Grissom. "Ecklie doesn't deserve to be alone. Don't you think?"

And so it read-

If you like pina coladas Getting caught in the rain If you're not into yoga If you have half a brain If you like making love at midnight!

"You've got to be kidding me," Greg laughed. "But does Ecklie like any of those things?"

"Possibly."

________________________________

Eight days later, they got a response from Ecklie about the personal add. This was just too much. They could not refrain from cracking up.

They have no intention of actually showing up for the proposed date; on the contrary, the plan is to let Ecklie wait there for his 'dream woman.' Either that, or have Greg show up in response. But Greg isn't too happy with that idea. Eventually, the talk him into it.

The night after the 'date,' Grissom has his team work a double shift, knowing full well that they will encounter Ecklie.

He shows up, very pissed off. Grissom and his team prepare to go for breakfast five minutes later. As they walk out of the lab, they let Archie carry a stereo playing "Escape The Pina Colada Song" playing softly on the speakers, but loud enough to be heard. Greg, fortunately enough, is not there.

When they pass him on their way out, Grissom, Catherine, Nick, Warrick and Archie belt out the chorus with the music humming softly in the background. They sing in a nonchalant way, as to not raise any red flags. None the less, this supposed 'coincidence' manages to really tweak Ecklie's melon.

~ Here's the song, incase you were curious of where the inspiration came from. Enjoy! I was tired of my lady, We'd been together too long, Like a worn out recording, Of a favorite song. So while she lay there sleepin, I read the paper in bed, And in the personal columns, There was this letter I read.

If you like Pina Coladas, And getting caught in the rain, If you're not into yoga, If you have half a brain, If you like making love at midnight, In the dunes of the cape, Then I'm the love that you've looked for, Write to me and escape.

I didn't think about my lady, I know that sounds kinda of mean, But me and my old lady, Had fallen into the same old dull routine, So I wrote to the paper, Took out a personal ad, And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half bad.

Yes I like Pina Coladas, And getting caught in the rain, I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne, I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon, And cut through all this red tape, At a bar called O'Malley's, Where we'll plan our escape.

So I waited with high hopes, And she walked in the place, I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face, It was my own lovely lady, And she said "Oh, it's you", Then we laughed for a moment, And I said "I never knew".

That you like Pina Coladas, And gettin caught in the rain, And the feel of the ocean, And the taste of champagne, If you like making love at midnight, In the dunes on the cape, Your the lady I've looked for, Come with me and escape.

If you like Pina Coladas, And getting caught in the rain, If you're not into yoga, If you have half a brain, If you like making love at midnight, In the dunes on the cape, Then I'm the love that you've looked for, Write to me and escape.
