(This still needs extensive editing)Good evening, everyone, I'm Nick Viall, and welcome to the 2018 nurses' ball, coming to you live from port charles, new york. As you can see, things are already starting to heat up here on the red carpet, so settle in for a night filled with glitz, glamour, and, most importantly, heart. Yeah, okay. Yeah, no, I-I'll just see you there. All right, I'm going to meet spinelli at the metro court to see what we can do to help carly. I can't believe she has to spend another night in lockup.
[ Sighs ] She's gonna be okay. What, you don't think so? I'm afraid she's breaking down. It's not like it hasn't happened before. This is the one. Isn't it? Oh, they were all exquisite, but this one makes me want to do unspeakable... things. -You keep that up, we're never gonna make it to the red carpet. And that's a bad thing how? Well, it is 'cause I'm hosting it. All right. I will grudgingly share you for one night. All right, thank you. But after the ball, you're all mine. What are you gonna do to me? I want to whisk you away... for a fabulous vacation. You, me, and charlotte. I have our bags packed, I have our tickets bought, and our passports. -What? Tonight? Anna: Wow.
[ Knock at door ] Coming. Oh! -Hello. Look at you! You look wonderful! And your hair! Thank you, and you are not ready. Not ready. I know. I've had so many things to do and... I need one of these first. Hm.
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] There's got to be a way out of here.
[ Footsteps approach ]
[ Door opens ] -Maxie: Peter? Wow. Y-you look... thank you. Are you ready to go? Yes. O-or I will be. Um... first there's something that, uh, I need to do. Well, not really do. Are you okay? Yes. Uh, there's something I want to give to you. What is it? This. Are you sure everything has been velcro-ed and snapped and sticky-taped within an inch of its life? I am not having a wardrobe malfunction this year, do you hear -- shawn! Shawn! Yes, no wardrobe malfunction. Okay, thank you. Good. Vince! Vinnie, vinnie, vinnie. -Yeah? -Please talk to me. Okay, tell me. You got the change, right, about lighting cue 19 for the nurses? Deal? Good? Good? Are we good? -Yeah, we're ready. -You swear? -Yep. -Okay, good. I don't want anybody falling off the stage. Nobody falls of the stage at the nurses' ball! -Good. -Got it? Good. Oh, my goodness. Oh, god. It's gonna be fine, right? You and me, baby. It's gonna be fine. Okay, you enjoy. I'm gonna see you in a few. Okay. All right. I got my water. Cheers. Ciao. Nick: As always, the nurses' ball promises to be a night to remember... I spot our first red carpet arrivals, and one, in particular, couldn't be more fitting. Hi. Um, I-I'm sure you're really good at this whole host thing, but I wonder if maybe I could take the next little bit? Um... I promise you won't have to bleep me anything out. It's just that it's really important to me. Please? Sure. Why not? Oh, thank you so much. Hey, come on. This way. -Um... -hi, everybody. I'm your special, uh, impromptu guest commentator, and I'm coming to you to live, and -- and, uh, I'd like to introduce a very special nurse, the heart and soul of general hospital, and the woman who, I hope some day, to call my wife. May I present to you a woman who would be beautiful on any carpet, red or otherwise, elizabeth -- yes, her middle name really is imogene -- webber. What are you doing? "Lovely" would be an understatement.
[ Laughs ] Thank you. Thank you -- a-and thank you for indulging your -- your "guest commentator". It was my pleasure. So, anything you want to tell our viewers at home? Just that you're in for a real treat tonight, and thank you for watching the 2018 nurses' ball.
Thank you so much for letting me do that. I know it was a little... -unusual? Very. But I couldn't have done the intro better myself. Have fun in there, guys. -Thank you. -I think we will. I specifically told carly I wanted the menu cards on the tables. Now the doors are gonna open and they're not there, so... what is that? What is that face? N-n-no, nothing. Nothing. Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Is something wrong? I got it handled, lucy. This is the nurses' ball -- nothing can go wrong! Yeah, when nelle said carly pushed her, that's -- that's when the whole thing falls apart, sonny. You know that carly would never jeopardize her grandchild's life. Nelle is lying. I understand why you want to believe that... but she's been unraveling for weeks, jason. I gotta get going. I'll be in touch.
[ Door closes ] Ms. Jerome! Here's a list of the patients we will be seeing tomorrow morning. I'd like you to pull their files. Have them on my desk by 7:00 A.M. I-I'd be happy to. Are you tired, jerome? No, no. Not at all. I would -- I'd really be happy to. Better.
[ Cellphone rings ] Hey, molly. That's really nice of you, but it doesn't look like I'm gonna make it to the nurses' ball this year. I just have too much work to do here. Yeah, I know, I'm pretty bummed, too, but hey, maybe next year?
[ Chuckles ] Take some video for me, okay? My, my, you're looking very dapper. Wow. You -- you look incredible. Yeah? You think? Oh... yeah. Really. But I...I thought I was picking you up at your place. Well, yeah, I was ready, so I thought I'd save you the trip. Too antsy to wait at home?
[ Inhales sharply ] I'm a little... you know, being the center of attention is not my favorite thing. But thank you so much for agreeing to be my date and -- and doing this introduction. Well, you might want to withhold that gratitude until you hear what I have to say. Really? Oh, okay. Well, it's just an award, you know, so do I need to be nervous about this? Only about my introduction. Oh, boy. Shall we? Sure. Of course. Charlotte -- she's not even out of school yet. You've been through so much lately. I just want to take you someplace to make you smile. Someplace we can relax... reconnect as a family. Mm, I'll think about it. You will? Yeah. You'll think about it? I will. I'll think about it.
[ Chuckles ] But right now I have to go rock the red carpet.
[ Sighs ]
[ Chuckles ]
[ Sighs ] Um, mom? Yes, sweetheart? I don't think you've listened to a word I've said since I got here. What's going on? Oh, I'm sorry. It's -- it's just this case I'm working on. It'S... mm-hmm. What does that mean? "Mm-hmm"? Oh, just this case, uh, that you're working on -- would it happen to be named hamilton finn? What? No. No. It has n-nothing... he's -- finn's moved on, you know. And I -- I have, too, and... there's no unresolved feelings or anything.
[ Sighs ] I'm gonna go and get dressed now. I hope I'm not overstepping. I-I just -- I really wanted to give you something. Um, [Chuckles] I hope this isn't weird. I-I saw this, and it really reminded me of you. Uh, but you're not obligated to keep it by any me-- okay. [ Chuckles ] Can I -- can i at least see it first? Oh! Yeah. Sorry. Oh, my god. Peter... too much? I can take it back tomorrow morning. Slow your roll, buddy.
[ Chuckles ] This is beautiful. You like it? Yeah. And it is too much, but if there's one thing I've learned in life, it's to never return jewelry. May I? Yeah. How does it look? Like it was made for you.
[ Chuckles ]
Nina, come on. We've got 10 seconds. I'm sorry, I'm sorry. What'd I miss? Elizabeth webber and franco baldwin. Oh, no loss. You ready? Yeah. Okay, let's go. Man: On three, two, one. And I'm back live with my co-host, nina reeves. Yes. We are ready for a night that promises to be fantastic. Speaking of fantastic, I spy josslyn jacks, daughter of metro court owner carly corinthos, and her date, oscar nero. Come on in. Josslyn, that dress is to die for. Thank you. Welcome. And you -- you clean up nice. Thanks. I hear you two are performing tonight. Any jitters? Um, some, but we're really just excited to be here. Break a leg. Thank you. Yeah, what she said.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Ah, young love... yeah, sweet.
[ Both chuckle ] This is unreal. I feel like cinderella or something. You look even prettier than cinderella.
[ Camera shutter clicking ]
[ Camera shutters clicking ]
[ Chatter ] W-whatever carly needs, my services are at your disposal. Okay, there's nothing we can do right now. Carly's locked up until morning.
[ Sighs ] Okay. W-what about the search for henrik?
[ Sighs deeply ] Well, I can't help carly tonight, so yeah, I guess I'll -- I'll try and follow up. Are you, uh -- you heading inside? Yeah, I-I thought it important to be here for maxie, b-b-but when the sun comes up, it's all carly all the time. Absolutely. And we need to examine every one of carly's claims... so we can figure out how nelle set her up. I don't have a ton of time... yeah. ...But I wanted to come and check in on you guys. Did you hear I fired another nurse?
[ Scoffs ] You know you don't have to explain yourself to me. I know how difficult it is to find the perfect fit. But you will.
[ Door opens ] I thought I heard the voice of an angel, and it turns out I was right.
[ Mike chuckles ] Mike, the charmer.
[ Chuckles ] Stella, the most gorgeous gal in town. Oh, please. You tell that to all the ladies. No, no.
[ Laughs ] So, how you feeling? I'm great. Great, especially now that you're here. Can you, uh -- can you stay and keep us company for a while? Well, I was actually just telling sonny I have to kind of cut this short. I made a game-time decision to attend the nurses' ball. The nurses' ball -- that's tonight? Yes. Oh, hey, we got to go 'cause, sonny, remember I... I think I performed there once.
[ Chuckles ] Yes, you did. Okay, we gotta go. Sonny: No, no, no. We're not going. No, hey. Let me go -- I still got that tux.
[ Chuckles ] Mike: I'll be back. And we're back live on the red carpet. Yes, and now we have our esteemed police commissioner, jordan ashford, and the very handsome curtis ashford by her side. Jordan, you look gorgeous. Thank you. This is the perfect ensemble for a very special occasion.
[ Clears throat ] Um, yeah, we're looking forward to it. Remember everything. Take everything in, okay? Okay. Um...yeah, to do that, we got to get inside. Okay, good. Have a blast. Thank you.
[ Chuckles ] The nurses' ball is the biggest night of the year for the metro court hotel. And I -- I totally screwed up and I forgot that our chef had a -- had a scheduling conflict, and -- say no more. I have the perfect solution.
[ Gasps ] Bless you! Cook two, you'll cover for him? You're a lifesaver. Not me. It's your hotel.
You can cook tonight.
[ Blows ] Hi! Hey.
[ Chuckles ] You -- you look great. Oh, thank you. You know, nurses' ball ready. Well, I-I figured that you would be here for this, so... how are you? Hi. I'm good. Busy. Yeah. That adventure with my mom in switzerland -- how was that? She -- she told you? She and emma, who, by the way, was living her best life when she picked out that suit of yours. Yeah. Is she -- uh, she here tonight? Of course. She wouldn't miss it for the world. And how about your mom? Yeah. She's just getting ready. I think it's good that you guys are spending some time, um, together because things have been kind of hectic with this case we've been working. Oh, so there actually
is a case, then? Mm-hmm. I just thought she was distracted with finn. Mm. I don't know anything about that. But... your mom is really fixated on finding henrik faison. Should I be worried? Uh, just -- just stay close. Because if she's gonna confide in anybody, it'll be you. Maxie? We don't have to do the red carpet if you don'T... no. The nurses' ball is a hugely important night, and I want to be here to show my support. George: Maxie? Maxie jones, do you have a moment? George, it's wonderful to see you. I was just gonna say the same to you. Allow me to introduce my date, peter august. George pennacchio. No introduction needed. George is a huge supporter of the nurses' ball. He always makes time for us. Well, it's my pleasure, but I do have a question for you. Are you looking forward to anything in particular tonight? Well, the fashion element is my weakness. The dresses are always spectacular, especially lucy coe's -- all of them. Uh, but I have to say my favorite part is how everybody steps outside of themselves and comes together to do some good. Well, that's nice. Thank you, maxie, so much. I need to step aside right now and let you show off your own spectacular gown.
[ Chuckles ] Thanks, george. Oh, and here's my beautiful sister-in-law, maxie jones, and she is being escorted by the coo of aurora media, peter august. Hey, you look beautiful. Thank you. You're welcome. Word on the street is this is your first nurses' ball, peter. It is. What are you expecting? Well, from what I've hear, it's a night to expect the unexpected.
[ Camera shutters clicking ]
thanks. And here we have valentin cassadine, who had the extremely good taste to marry my co-host. I would be utterly lost without this woman. So, it's safe to say you would do anything for this woman? And then some, yeah.
[ Camera shutters clicking ]
[ Sighs ] Ohh! Jason, hi. No, it's fine. Hey. You okay? Yeah. Uh, robin said she's gonna meet you downstairs. Okay. I didn't expect to see you in here. So... did you reach out to henrik... posing as his mother? Yep. We're still waiting to hear back in response, but... and you're gonna tell me if you hear anything, right? Of course. Because as much as you don't want me to find henrik first -- and kill him. No, I don't want you to walk into a trap. So, we just have to stick to the plan a-and work this together like we -- we agreed, right? Yes, what we agreed. Spinelli! What are you doing here? I couldn't let you to attend the nurses' ball alone.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Alas, you're not alone, are you?
[ Camera shutters continue ] Miss jerome? I'm almost done with the filing. Why didn't you remind me that the nurses' ball is tonight? You must have made plans to go. It's fine. I have a lot of work here to do. Work can wait. You deserve a night off. Is this a trick? No trick. No, I mean it. I mean it. It's, uh... go enjoy yourself. Thank you. Um, I'll be back bright and early tomorrow.
[ Folders rustle ] Have fun.
[ Chuckles ] Cook two, cook two... I know that we've had our differences -- differences?! You blatantly ignored my wishes! It's a gigantic kitchen! There should be room enough for both of us! Well, now you don't have to share! You can have the whole kitchen to yourself -- at your hotel. I can't do it! Carly is in jail. I need a chef! Help me, cook two. You're my only hope. Nina: Oh, my goodness, sam cain. Co-ceo of aurora media. You look drop-dead gorgeous. I mean, like always. Thank you. So do you. Thank you. You, too, as well. So, you looking forward to tonight? I am. I'm especially honored because my mother is receiving the pioneer award tonight. Should be fun. Fantastic. Oh, and here she is now. Alexis davis. Oh, go get her. Hey! Come on in. Oh, hi. Hi! So, alexis, tell us about this honor you're receiving tonight. You may not have won the mayoral election, but you clearly have won the people's hearts.
[ Chuckles ] Mom, you're gonna -- oh! Oh!
[ Crowd gasps ] Oh, um... my gums are irritated. I don't have to worry about that, do I? Actually, you do.
Oh, wow. I-I... sorry. I am so sorry. I'm sorry. No, I'm sorry. Really, I was just, like, blah. It was me. Are you okay? Yeah, I'm fine.
[ Sighs ] Thank you. Are you okay? But, you know, thank you for catching me because these photographers would've had a very different shot. Yeah. Know what I mean?
[ Both chuckle ] We just spoke with your daughter sam. Uh, yes, she is right over there getting her picture taken. So, did you two make a pact to come solo tonight? Female empowerment. Uh... well, as much as I support that movement, I'm actually here with, uh, dr. Hamilton finn, who I seem to have l-lost. I-I-I should, uh, g-get back... okay. Yeah. Have a nice evening. You, too. Mm-hmm. I will.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Yeah. No unresolved feelings there at all. Hey. I can't believe my wife's in jail. I-I was actually thinking of going over there and spending some time with her. There's no way I can put on a tux and go to the, you know, nurses' ball. Is there anything you can do for carly tonight? No. But there is something you can do for your father. I-it just doesn't feel right. Mike has alzheimer's, sonny. Your time with him is running short. An opportunity like this will not come along again. If I were you, I would take it.
[ Footsteps approach ] Ah! Whoo! Lookin' sharp, mike corbin.
[ Chuckles ] I'm gonna need some help with this tie. You really want to go tonight, dad? Heck, yeah. Hey, we're going.
[ Laughs ] And, uh, you see this, uh, beautiful woman here? Yeah, I see her. Yes, she is my date. Ooh!
[ Laughing ] Stella: Oh!
[ Laughs ] Although they need no introduction, here are dr. Robin scorpio-drake and her mother, former police commissioner anna devane. Hello.You both look lovely. Oh, thank you. Thank you. You, too. So, you're why we're here. Anna: Yes. Oh, well, I wouldn't say that.
[ Chuckles ] I would. I would. My daughter is a shining example of how to live a full and meaningful life with hiv. We're here tonight so that other people can live a life so successful as robin. Yes. And hopefully, o-one day, eradicate hiv and aids altogether.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] I love you. I love you more.
[ Laughs ] I'm glad we got here early before it gets too crazy. Yeah, me, too. Thank you. That was fun. Thank you for letting me introduce the belle of the ball. Oh, yeah. You just had to slip in my middle name, didn't you? I did. I did. 'Cause it's hands down my favorite thing about you.
[ Chuckles ] Spinelli: Oh. Club soda with lemon for the lady. Thank you. Spinelli. Mwah, mwah! Mwah, mwah!
[ Both laugh ] Fair samantha. Now, might I suggest we get you off your feet? I'm fine. Ah, you and the baby need some rest. Let's -- let's find a chair. Okay, I'll be in a chair... somewhere. Okay. Find you later. Thank you for taking care of maxie. I would have just come alone otherwise... so we're just helping each other out. Hey. Hey, babe. Eyes on me, ashford. As if I could look at anything else. I have so much respect for you as a chef -- flattery will get you nowhere. No, no, no! No, no. It's true. I think of you as a -- as a culinary genius. You didn't think so when you were inflicting your lasagna and risotto and manicotti on my menus. Okay, okay, but this isn't about me. This is about the nurses' ball. All these people have -- have bought tickets to support this wonderful charity. Y-you don't want these people to starve, do you? You don't want the people -- okay, okay! Fine.
[ Sighs ] I'll do it.
[ Gasps ] Ah! Thank you!
[ Gasps ] One one condition. You swear -- on your favorite skillet -- that you will never step foot in the quartermaine kitchen again.
[ Gasps ]
[ Camera shutters clicking ] You guys have a great evening tonight. Oh, and now we have general hospital's own dr. Griffin munro.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] You're looking very handsome, dr. Munro. Griffin: Thank you. And on the doctor's arm is ava jerome, local art-gallery owner. Among other things. I hear you're gracing the stage tonight. Yes. Uh, a-ava is a woman of many talents.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Good luck. I-I think you mean "break a leg". Good luck.
[ Chuckles, sighs ]
[ Camera shutters clicking ]
[ Sighs ]
[ Sighs ] Taking a little breather? Yeah, just got a little much out there. You, uh, look beautiful. I take it you're not coming. No. I thought you would. I mean, I-I was hoping you would. I-I sent a donation. Oh. Yeah. Of course you did.
[ Sighs ] What are you up to? Uh...you know, I'm using the ball as a cover to work on finding henrik. What? What, what? What? I-I mean, I've got my own thing going on tonight, too. Really? Yeah. Okay. Good luck. Thank you. You really do look beautiful. Thank you.
You having a good time?
[ Scoffs ] The best time ever. And the ball hasn't even started yet. I got to walk the red carpet with my boyfriend, who I'm in love with, by the way. I love you, too. I'm gonna get a drink. Uh, white wine, please. Yeah. Someone didn't tell me she was coming to town.
[ Gasps ] Hi! Hi. You look beautiful. Oh, thank you. How are you? I'm well. You know, same old, same old. Right, because nothing's been going on in your life lately. Nope. Not a thing.
[ Laughs ] Well, is everything back to normal now? Better than normal. Hi. Happier than ever. Good. Well, then I am very happy for both of you. Maybe hold off on the liquid courage 'til after your performance.
[ Chuckles ] Who's ready to bring the house down? Have you met my boss, peter? No, I don't believe so. This is robin, mac's niece. What it boils down to is we're family. Yeah. Robin scorpio-drake. So, if mac is your uncle, does that mean...? Robert scorpio is her father. Oh, yes. The legend himself. Enjoying yourself? Oh, yeah. Time away from the subject of henrik is exactly what was called for. Good. I'm sure robert will fill me in on anything that's needed. I'm sure he will.
[ Groans ]
[ Grunts ] Not even to make leo a grilled cheese? Those are the terms. Take 'em or leave 'em. Okay, fine! Fine, fine. I swear... on your favorite skillet.
[ Sighs ] I swear on my favorite skillet that I will never again set foot in the quartermaine kitchen. Then you have a chef for the nurses' ball. Nick: Look who's coming in now. Sonny corinthos, a longtime and extremely generous patron of the nurses' ball.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Welcome. Hi. Hey. It's good to be here. So, tell the viewers, why is the ball so important to you? Well, uh... I had a friend, stone cates, and he -- he died of aids, and I-I said to myself that I don't want another person dying of this disease. Mm. That's a beautiful sentiment. Who's this beautiful lady by your side? She's with me.
[ Laughter ] This is my father, mike corbin, and his date, stella henry. Hi, how are you?Good evening. Nina: Nice to meet you. Nice to meet you, too. Shall we? Lead the way, sir.
[ Laughs ] Oh. Wait a minute. Picture time. Picture time. Yeah, but, dad, we... hey, I'm out on the town with my son and my best girl.
[ Laughs ] I want photographic evidence. Just a few. Come on. Yeah, I may not remember it.
[ Laughter ] Man: All right, you two, look right here at me. All right. Big smiles. Nice smile, yes.
[ Both laugh ]
[ Camera shutter clicking ] Come on. Come on. Sonny, come on. Go get him. Come on!
[ Camera shutters clicking ] All right. Come on. Go take a picture with your father. Yes.
[ Laughs ] Aww.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Chuckles ] Hello. Hi. And here she is, ladies and gentlemen, our mistress of ceremonies, the one, the only lucy coe! Oh, my goodness. Look at you. And -- and... yeah. Your dress is everything.
[ Gasps ] Thank you! I do -- I love it. Dutch loves it, too. Nick: So, how are we looking tonight? Oh, the music is ready, acts are cued. We have all the ingredients for a simply magical evening, huh? Well, except one. Uh-oh. Did we forget something? Well, the show can't go on without you. Oh, you're right. We better get in there, dutch. We gotta get in there right away. Have a ball.
[ Gasps ] We always, always do. Ta-ta. See you. Bye. Sonny! Hi. Hi. You look amazing. You look incredible, too. Well... I didn't know that stella was gonna be here. Neither did I. Nerves on a scale of one to 10? 8,759. You've got this. I would've been so disappointed if I had to miss your performance. Fancy seeing you here. Listen, I'm gonna need that morocco house well-stocked. We're staying indefinitely. And, um... get me some security guys, too.
[ Sighs ] Hi. Where were you? I was -- you okay? There was a minor crisis with the menu tonight, but, uh, I got it handled. You sure? I'm sure. It just, uh... cost me a lot more than I thought. The air feels charged, doesn't it? Like something's about to happen? It is. The doors are opening. Let's find our seats. Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the wait is over. Put your hands together for the 2018 general hospital nurses' ball.
