How can I use a ColdFusion function that is on the same page as a script?

I normally call a cffunction with Ajax in ColdFusion like the below example. I want to do the exact same thing, but instead of having the cffunction on a separate .cfc page, I want to have it right on the .cfm page that I am calling it from. I want the <script> and CFFunction on the same page.

Can someone help?

<cfajaxproxy cfc="/mySite/myDir/myCFC" jsclassname="jsobj">

	function myFunction(){
	var somethingOne= 'somethingOne';
	var somethingElse = 'somethingElse';
	var cfcAsAjax = new jsobj();

On the .CFC page, I just have a normal CFFunction:

<cffunction name="myCFFunction" output="false" access="remote">
	<cfargument required="true" type="numeric" name="somethingOne" />
	<cfargument required="true" type="String" name="SomethingElse" />
