Secret Admirer is the 3rd episode of Season 9 of Kids Incorporated and 142nd episode overall. In this episode, Haylie's the object of a secret admirer's affection; and the others try to figure out who he is.
The episode opens with "Warm It Up" as Dena appears quite pleased with business at the P*lace since taking over (particularly since allowing for free refills). When the kids arrive at the counter, Dena then hands Haylie a note from a kid known only as "Too Shy to Say Hi". Apparently, this young man has become quite smitten with Haylie, as he has sent a lot of notes for her. Determined to find this mystery writer, Haylie asks a couple of guys at one table; inadvertently scaring them off; though Haylie spots another note on the exterior of the P*lace door ("Saving Forever for You").
Back in the break room (during which Anthony is showing off his skills on the harmonica); Haylie enters, having opened the envelope which reveals a (partial) song; at which point Charlie reminds the band of an upcoming costume party. Ana then suggests a petition to lower burger prices (with the goal of attempting to match a name to the handwriting); though by this point Charlie and Anthony have gotten sick and tired of hearing about this secret admirer.
At the costume party ("This Time"); the signatures are collected only for the only match to be a kid a few years younger than Haylie or the others; resulting in Haylie completely blowing off "Too Shy to Say Hi" before the others call her out on it; quickly bringing Haylie back to her senses. Back at the P*lace, Dena hands Haylie yet another note; with "Too Shy to Say Hi" saying this would be his final note; with Haylie preparing to write an apology note. When Dena spots him outside, Haylie then finds and apologizes to the kid, who introduces himself as Tommy. Though he still has a crush on Haylie, she (after pointing out he's a little too young for her) agrees to become friends with Tommy ("Secret Fantasy").
