Emily: You'll take me anywhere in the world I want to go?

Nikolas: Yeah, we can leave as -- as soon as the doctors diagnose me.

Emily: Nikolas, that sounds wonderful --

Nikolas: Yeah, it can be kind of like a way to mark the beginning of the rest of our lives. I -- I know I can't ask you to put your career on hold, and I'm sorry if it's selfish to ask that. I really want us to go.

Emily: You're not allowed to take it back. I'd love to go.

Nikolas: Okay.

Jason: Why are you working so hard to get me to go to this party?

Carly: It's a ball, Jason. It's a social event. Emily would be so happy if you were there.

Jason: She said she didn't mind if I stayed home.

Carly: Well, of course she said that -- that's Emily, the do-gooder. You know how happy she would be if you actually showed up to support her?

Jason: Okay, you know what? You said all this before, Carly, I don't believe a word you're saying. So why don't you tell me what's really going on?

Johnny: When my father gets out, people die. I'm not going to let Lulu be one of them.

Trevor: Then you're going to have to shoot me, Johnny, because I'm not going to let you go.

Lulu: I don't usually go to social events, but I want to be supportive of -- of Nikolas --

Logan: Yes.

Lulu: Because he's going to donate money to the hospital. And then if we went together --

Logan: Lulu, yes, I would love to take you to the ball. Yes.

Lulu: You would?

Elizabeth: May I help you?

Carly: Oh, my -- Jason, I am just trying to do something nice for you, that's all.

Jason: How is it nice to drag me to some stupid ball?

Carly: Come on, Jason.

Jason: Can you -- can you please just get to the point?

Carly: Nikolas is giving an endowment to the hospital in Alan’s name. I just thought you'd want to be there to honor your father.

Jason: Don't even go there.

Carly: You're making me crazy, do you know that?

Jason: Me? This isn't about me!

Carly: It's about Emily! You know? Maybe you should be there!

Jason: Well, she has Nikolas.

Carly: Who's still having those freaky mood swings, he's having blackouts, but yet he's still having this party for her. You should be there to support her -- you know, just in case.

Jason: In case what?

Carly: In case something went wrong?

Jason: Like what? What are you afraid might go wrong?

Nikolas: Are you sure you can take the time off? I know you've worked really hard to get where you're at right now.

Emily: Yeah, I'm still going to achieve my dream of becoming a doctor. I'm just going to take an extended vacation along the way.

Nikolas: Okay. Just -- just know if you change your mind, that's okay.

Emily: Nikolas, this is our life, okay, and it's thrown us a curveball, but we're going to deal with it. And meanwhile, I think it's just reminding us to count our blessings, beginning with each other. You're so wonderful to offer this trip. I'm going to take you up on it, so stop arguing.

Nikolas: Okay. Okay. So, where shall we go?

Emily: Hmm, I don't know. Why I don't I spin the globe and see where my finger lands?

Nikolas: Ooh, I don't know. What if it lands on, say, the arctic or the wilds of Borneo?

Emily: Ooh, I don't know. Pygmies with shooting darts might not be very romantic.

Nikolas: No, no, it won’t. What about Europe?

Emily: Any place but Russia. That trip to rescue Spencer from Helena is still a little too fresh in my mind.

Nikolas: Okay.

Emily: But, um -- I don't know, maybe Egypt? I mean, Jason used to always tell me stories about the pyramids. It could be fun.

Nikolas: Yeah.

Emily: It's going to be hard to decide.

Nikolas: I know. I just want you to be happy wherever we go.

Emily: I'll be happy wherever we go, as long as I'm with you.

Ric: So, before I have you arrested, you mind telling me what you find so fascinating about my files?

Luke: Nothing, unfortunately, since you interrupted me before I could get a good look. So, no harm done. I think we can call this unfortunate incident a wash.

Ric: Oh, no, you break and enter my office, and you expect me to just turn a blind eye?

Luke: I can help you --

Ric: Ha.

Luke: If you help me.

Ric: Really? The closest thing you have to influence in this town, Spencer, is being married to a Quartermaine.

Luke: You can't see what's going on under your nose. Scott Baldwin is oiling his way into Mayor Floyd’s favor, planning to replace you as D.A.

Ric: Well, thanks for the heads-up, but I'm fully aware of Scott’s ambitions.

Luke: Well, then why are you just kicking back waiting for the ground to crack beneath you?

Ric: I'm not politically naive. I can handle the Scott Baldwins in this world.

Luke: And Mayor Floyd? You don't think he's currently sharpening the knife he'll soon pull out of your back? It can only be good for you if Scott Baldwin skips town, and I'm in a position to make that happen.

Ric: Go to all that trouble just for me?

Lulu: I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that you don't own a white tie and tails.

Logan: Oh, no, I used to, but they got stained with caviar at the last ball I attended.

Lulu: Oh, right, right. Well, there's a place on Maple that rents them.

Logan: Okay, so, about the fanciest thing I've ever gone to is, like, a school dance, so I could really embarrass you, all right?

Lulu: Not unless I embarrass you first.

Logan: Lulu, come on, you're a girl with class; you're not going to embarrass me.

Lulu: Whose father took me ice fishing instead of to social events. Seriously, I'm -- I'm completely clueless when it comes to this stuff. One time when I was 12, my grandma took me to a really nice dinner with finger bowls,

Logan: Mm-hmm?

Lulu: I picked mine up and drank it.

Logan: Yeah, and I probably would've spilt mine all over myself.

Lulu: So -- so then if you don't spit on the floor, we're going to be great.

Anthony: I thought I recognized that girl inside.

Trevor: You're smarter than this.

Johnny: I should've killed you years ago.

Trevor: John, when your father is in trouble, who cleans it up? He would've been in prison or dead if it wasn't for me -- and the same goes for you.

Anthony: A business associate of mine has a daughter named Susan and I think that might be her.

Elizabeth: No, that girl's name is Lulu.

Anthony: No, is it?

Elizabeth: Yeah.

Anthony: Well, then I'm totally wrong.

Johnny: I'm not afraid of dying. But you are.

Anthony: I'm glad you came along, otherwise I might've really embarrassed myself. I didn't get your name.

Elizabeth: Elizabeth.

Anthony: Nice to meet you, Elizabeth.

Leyla: You wanted to see me, Dr. Drake?

Patrick: Yes. I've got a question. Leyla, will you go to the Cassadine ball with me?

Leyla: You want me to go to the ball with you?

Patrick: You seem surprised.

Leyla: It's because I am. Um -- I assumed you were going to ask Dr. Scorpio. I think you should.

Spinelli: Paso doble!

Nadine: And you learned those moves on "Dancing With the Stars"?

Spinelli: The Jackal is keenly aware that his matador-like movements require a little more finesse and fluidity, which he will acquire through much practice before the black-and-white ball.

Nadine: Just don't hurt yourself.

Spinelli: Oh, uh, not to worry. The Jackal will prove to be a worthy escort for the seemingly sweet one.

[Spinelli squeals]

Spinelli: Ooh! My apologies, faithful friend.

Georgie: It's fine, it's okay.

Spinelli: Oh, uh, will you be attending the elegant ball at Wyndemere?

Ric: Sorry. So far, I haven't heard anything that would keep me from having you arrested.

Luke: Look, I know the reptilian workings of Baldwin’s mind better than anyone else. I know how he thinks, I know how he operates, I know what will trip him up. I can poke that snake so deep in a hole, he'll never slime out again, and you won't have to waste valuable time thinking about him.

Ric: Well, maybe I just don't particularly care.

Luke: It seems to me that you got a lot on your plate right now, D.A. Lansing. The last thing you need is the distraction of having to fight for your job.

Ric: Baldwin has been an annoyance.

Luke: I know. And he hates me so much it short-circuits what little common sense he's got. I mean, if he thought he could take me down, he would jump with blind Pavlovian reflex. I can set this guy up so that he'll do something highly illegal. And I can guarantee you he'll take the bait. Now, isn't that worth more to you than some petty bust over your desk clutter?

Ric: Well, I'll let you know -- when you bring me something a little bit more concrete.

Luke: Good.

Logan: Thank you. So we're really going to do this, huh -- get all dressed up and rub elbows with high society?

Lulu: Well, if you don't want to, we could go to the movies or something.

Logan: Uh-uh. Oh, no, I want to see you in that ball gown -- which means I better get over to that shop on Maple and pick up those tails before they run out.

Lulu: Well, you are going to look -- [British accent] Positively dashing.

Logan: As long as you think so. I'll meet you back here, tell you how it went?

Lulu: [Normal voice] Yeah.

Logan: Thank you.

Elizabeth: I guess you're trying again with Logan?

Lulu: Ah. You don't have to say it -- everyone and their third cousin has warned me about him -- but I happen to think he's a nice guy, so yes. Like it or not, I am trying again.

Elizabeth: I wasn't going to criticize. You're old enough to make your own decisions.

Lulu: That's right, I am.

Elizabeth: I'm not the enemy, you know.

Lulu: I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I -- I get defensive when it comes to Logan.

Elizabeth: It's not just that, is it?

Lulu: What do you mean?

Elizabeth: Things have been strained between us for months and I realize why. You know that Jason is Jake’s father.

Jason: What do you think's going to go wrong at this party?

Carly: Nikolas still hasn't been diagnosed yet. I mean, he could fly off into a fit of rage.

Jason: Oh, so you -- you think he might hurt you?

Carly: No, I don't, but I think Emily will have a better time if she's not worrying about Nikolas, and you can be there to reassure her.

Jason: You're covering something, Carly.

Carly: Oh, my God. I cannot believe how suspicious you are of me!

Jason: This is what you do!

Carly: What do I do, Jason?

Jason: Well, you come up with some crazy scheme in your head; you keep it a secret till it blows up on your face. Why don't you just tell me now so I know what to expect?

Carly: You know, trust me, okay? My instincts are good.

Jason: Yeah, but they get you in trouble.

Carly: Well, how much trouble can I be in if you were there with me?

Jason: Oh, so that's it -- you want me to be there as backup? Is that what --

Jax: Jason. So, you taking Carly to the ball?

Jason: Can't -- business.

Jax: Would this business have anything to do with Sonny's disappearance?

Jax: Look, I have two stepsons that love their father, and they want to know when Sonny's coming home. So if there's anything that we should know, would you please tell us?

Jason: I'm handling it. I got to get back to work.

Carly: We're not done talking about the ball, Jason.

Jason: Carly, I'm not going, okay?

Jax: Well, there's your answer.

Carly: I'm still going.

Jax: What? Why are you so determined to go to this ball? I mean, you know Nikolas is a loose cannon. You know how dangerous he is.

Carly: He wouldn't have hurt me, Jax!

Jax: Okay, maybe, or maybe not. But he went after my brother and stabbed him, and he doesn't even remember doing it, okay, and it's very possible that he strangled Leticia.

Carly: He didn't kill Leticia.

Jax: Really? What makes you so sure?

Spinelli: Do you have a date to the ball?

Georgie: Yes, I -- yes, I have a date.

Spinelli: Oh, fun. Well, allow me to introduce you to my date. Fair Nadine, this is the --

Georgie: We met at Kelly’s.

Nadine: Nice to see you again. You know, I got to confess, I'm a little nervous about going to this ball. I'm new in town, and I hardly know a soul.

Spinelli: Incorrect -- you know the Jackal and the faithful friend and dispenser of wisdom, and we will ensure a warm reception, will we not?

Georgie: You know, I -- I think that everyone is a little nervous about going to, you know, a big ball, but Nikolas and Emily are pretty terrific, so we're going to have a lot of fun. Excuse me.

Spinelli: Oh, sure.

Nadine: Do you know where I can buy a gown?

Spinelli: Oh, how fortuitous. Um -- see, the faithful friend has abided in Port Charles her entire life. She can, no doubt, be of assistance.

Georgie: Yeah, I could -- uh -- write some places down.

Nadine: Thanks.

Patrick: That was abrupt.

Leyla: There's really not a lot to say. You -- you should be asking Robin to the ball.

Patrick: Leyla, we've enjoyed each other's company -- toy-car races, baklava, memories of London, among other things. Do you really want to push me back to my ex-girlfriend?

Leyla: Dr. Drake, you and Dr. Scorpio were deeply involved. Now she's trying to find somebody else to father her child and you're clearly upset about it.

Patrick: Oh -- yes, okay, I am, but that's just because I don't want her to get hurt.

Leyla: Because you still care?

Patrick: Yes, I still care about Robin, but I'm moving on -- Robin has.

Leyla: Okay, but you need time to get over this. After a serious relationship, anybody does.

Patrick: True. But it doesn't mean my life has to come to a screeching halt.

Leyla: Okay, I don't see the point in dragging this out any further or pretending than it's anything more than it is.

Patrick: We'll never know what it is if you give up this easy.

Skye: When the D.A. summons me to his office, I can assume it's about one thing -- the property that I inherited from Lorenzo. So tell me, have you had any offers?

Ric: Actually, I was hoping that you had.

Skye: Not a word. But I can sense the vultures are circling.

Ric: No word from Sonny?

Skye: No. Do you expect me to hear from him?

Ric: This is Sonny's chance to monopolize the waterfront. If he doesn't buy out those piers, I'm pretty sure that his competition will.

Skye: You look concerned, Ric. What aren't you telling me?

Ric: Sit. Sonny dropped out of sight shortly after he uncovered a carefully guarded secret.

Skye: What kind of secret?

Ric: He -- he dropped in uninvited at Anthony Zacchara's Crimson Pointe estate. It turns out it's nothing more than a well-appointed padded cell -- Zacchara is certifiably insane.

Skye: So who's running his mob empire?

Ric: Ha. The same person who has kept Anthony Zacchara's condition a secret for all these years. His loyal and trusted attorney -- my father.

Elizabeth: Jason told me you've known about Jake for quite a while and that you've decided to keep it a secret.

Lulu: I didn't want to hurt Lucky.

Elizabeth: And that's exactly why I didn't tell him the truth in the first place.

Lulu: You don't owe me any explanations.

Elizabeth: I know, but I want you to understand how I felt.

Lulu: Okay.

Elizabeth: You know Lucky was struggling to overcome his addiction to pills. And when I told him about the baby, he was -- God, he was so excited about becoming a father. It gave him the incentive to stick with the program and get clean. But when I found out Jason was the father, I couldn't pull the rug out from under Lucky.

Lulu: But you decided to tell Jason.

Elizabeth: Not until we were trapped in an elevator -- I didn't think we would make it out alive. It was very emotional for Jason. He would love to be a part of Jake’s life, but his work is far too dangerous for a child.

Lulu: You asked him to step aside, which he agreed.

Elizabeth: Lying to your brother has torn me apart.

Lulu: Hmm. When you guys announced your engagement --

Elizabeth: I expected you to be happy for us. I mean, you've always treated me like family, then all of a sudden you were pulling apart and just acting almost hostile.

Lulu: Well, I -- I was furious. I thought that you were the world's biggest hypocrite.

Elizabeth: Believe me, I felt the same.

Lulu: But you stuck by your decision.

Elizabeth: Yes. And I questioned it every day. I still do. But in my defense, all I can say is I made the best choice I could at the time. I never set out to hurt Lucky or to take advantage of him.

Lulu: Well, I know that now.

Elizabeth: Lucky and I tried our best. Sometimes it's not enough.

Lulu: Are you happier now?

Elizabeth: I don't know. It's too soon to say, really. I mean, I'm just kind of in survival mode right now, trying to get settled into the new home and help the kids with the adjustment.

Lulu: Lucky's off dating Sam.

Elizabeth: Sam is a lying tramp. One of these days, I'm going to call her on all her garbage and set the record straight.

Lulu: Something tells me this is more than just jealousy.

Elizabeth: If Lucky knew everything I knew about Sam, he wouldn't go within 10 feet of her.

Lulu: Care to share?

Elizabeth: No. He wants to be with her. Far be it for me to interfere, right?

Lulu: Why is it that people don't see that someone's bad for them until it's too late?

Elizabeth: I don't know. Don't ask me, I'm hardly the expert on relationships.

Lulu: Yeah, but like you said, you tried your best. And you're a wonderful mother.

Elizabeth: Thank you. That means a lot to me that you think so.

Lulu: Hmm.

[Phone chirps]

Handler: Mr. Zacchara, Johnny's waiting for you at home.

Anthony: Is my boy all right?

Handler: He's fine, Sir. He just wants to see you.

Anthony: All right, take me to Johnny. [Gunshots] Liar, liar, pants on fire.

Jason: What the hell are you doing?

Spinelli: Um -- just a simple twinkle.

Jason: Huh. Forget I asked.

Spinelli: It's a waltz step I'm -- I'm trying. I don't have much time to prepare for my much anticipated date.

Jason: You got a date?

Spinelli: Stone Cold's amazement is duly noted -- and only surpassed by my own. I got a date.

Jason: Who is she?

Spinelli: Uh, a new angel of mercy at the hospital -- fair Nadine, sister of the falsely fair Jolene.

Jason: Oh, okay, you better remember what her sister did.

Spinelli: Stone Cold, it is most unfair to -- to judge fair Nadine by her sinister sibling's criminal actions. She's kind and sweet, and she is gracious and charming to the Jackal.

Jason: Okay, it's your choice.

Spinelli: You know, the splendor of the ball could only be enhanced by Stone Cold's presence. Have you changed your mind?

Jason: No.

Spinelli: I could show you some dance steps.

Jason: Have fun.

Singer: We've got something that's greater something worth making time for

Logan: Hi. I'm looking for the girl --

Luke: You looking for someone?

Singer: It's not just more pretending

Luke: Lulu tells me she's giving you another chance.

Logan: Look, I -- uh -- Mr. Spencer, I know you have a hard time believing this, but I -- I care a lot about your daughter, and I'm going to prove to her that she can trust me again.

Luke: She trusted you once before, you treated her like dirt. You know she'd never be coming back for more if your old man hadn't blackmailed her.

Logan: You hate my father, right?

[Logan chuckles]

Logan: Right. Look, we've got that in common, okay? He left my mother when she was pregnant, then never so much as even bothered to send a post card. Now he's pulled a 180, telling me he wants to make up for lost time. I don't trust the guy as far as I can throw him.

Luke: Well. You're not entirely stupid.

Logan: Look, Scott thought he was doing me a favor when he made that deal with Lulu. If I had known about that, I would've told him where he could stick it.

Luke: Yeah, but you didn't, did you?

Logan: Well --

Luke: And it all turned out pretty well for you, didn't it?

Logan: Look, my father opened the door, but Lulu chose to walk through it, and I owe him for that -- especially when everybody in this town keeps telling the girl to stay away from me, including you.

Luke: Well, you know, could it be -- is it possible that just maybe -- everybody's right, she should stay away from you?

Ric: We may be able to set up both Sonny and Trevor.

Skye: Using my piers as bait?

Ric: And my position as the district attorney.

Skye: For a mutually beneficial outcome?

Ric: Of course.

Skye: And your plan?

Ric: Well, to get evidence of extortion and Rico violations on both Sonny and Trevor.

Skye: How convenient for you, Ric. You get your father and your brother in one fell swoop -- killing two birds with one stone, as it were.

Ric: Oh, you're wondering what's in this for you.

Skye: I want to profit from this deal, I don't want to end up as collateral damage because of it.

Ric: I will make sure that you don't get hurt.

Skye: Well, that's very assuring.

Ric: You know, your bargaining position is limited here, Skye. Remember, I'm the only game in town.

Skye: Actually, I had lunch with Luke the other day. He also knows how valuable Lorenzo’s piers are -- in fact, he offered to broker the deal. So the question is, who do I want my partner to be -- you or Luke?

Jax: What makes you so sure that Nikolas didn't kill Leticia?

Carly: Because Nikolas isn't capable of murder.

Jax: In his condition, he's capable of anything. He blacks out, and then he can't remember what he's done.

Carly: I was there; I know what it's like. When Nikolas came after me, I knew he wasn't going to actually hurt me.

Jax: Because Max jumped on him!

Carly: I was talking Nikolas down before Max got there.

Jax: You know what, Carly? You're fooling yourself, and you're forgetting something. Nikolas attacked Jerry and put a knife through his ribs.

Carly: Jerry?

Jax: Yes.

Carly: Jerry, who gets a twisted char out of provoking Nikolas, and you know that's what he did that night.

Jax: You're just making excuses.

Carly: I am not making excuses.

Jax: Yes, you are.

Carly: No, I'm not. I am going to be fine at the ball; you don't have to worry about me.

Jax: Of course I worry about you. You're my wife, I love you.

Carly: I love you, too. But, look, Emily is giving this ball with Nikolas. If she thought something bad was going to happen, don't you think she would postpone it?

Jax: You know, maybe the doctors haven't diagnosed him yet.

Carly: And maybe they're afraid they don't have much time ft -- even more of a reason for me to go.

Jax: All right, fine. I give in. You should go to the ball.

Carly: Thank you.

Jax: But not alone.

Carly: We've been through that, okay? Jason flat out said no, you're going to be in Paris, so I have no one to go with.

Jax: I'm not going to be in Paris. If you're so determined to go to this ball, I'm going to cancel my meetings, okay? We will go to the black-and-white ball together.

Ric: Look, I have every intention of staying in office. But in order to accomplish that, I need a win, a big one.

Skye: I'm sure you'll manage.

Ric: Well, I had an airtight case against Jason, but the defense was able to get him to walk because they -- they came up with some so-called evidence that alcazar was still alive, which I believe you supported fully and wholeheartedly, right?

Skye: Oh, Ric, the case is over.

Ric: No, Skye, if I can't help get the mayor re-elected, he is going to hang me out to dry if this mob war goes south, okay? I tend to bring in Sonny and Jason.

Skye: I'm sorry; I'm still not quite getting how I'm supposed to profit from this.

Ric: When Sonny and Trevor are arrested, that will leave you free to sell to a legitimate transport company.

Skye: None of which have shown the least interest in buying.

Ric: Well, of course not, because the property is in the middle of a mob war zone. But once the criminal element is eliminated, then they're going to feel more comfortable.

Skye: That's a reasonable assumption.

Ric: So you're going to work with me?

Skye: Yes.

Ric: Good. What do you say you -- you escort me to the black-and-white ball to seal the deal?

[Music plays]

Skye: Are you kidding me? If your father and Sonny see us together, they're going to assume you're in on my business negotiations.

Ric: No, my father and Sonny continually underestimate me. If I waved it in front of them with a flag, they still wouldn't know what was going on.

[Phone rings]

Ric: Lansing. I'm on my way.

Carly: Are you sure you'd rather go to Wyndemere with me than being in Paris, strolling along the left bank, eating croissants at a cafe?

Jax: What would Paris be without you?

Carly: Hmm -- true, it would suck.

Jax: Besides, I wouldn't be doing any of the things that you just said, I'd be stuck in a conference room with 10 other business associates.

Carly: Oh. Well, I deserve a thank-you for making you stay home.

Jax: You know, I would rather be here than any other place in the world.

Carly: I love you -- more than I've ever loved anyone.

Singer: When you spend so much

Singers: Life making love

Carly: And I've never been loved the way you love me.

Singers: Life makes us love

Carly: I can't believe we're together, you know?

Singers: I am convinced that it's right

Jax: You have me forever.

Singer: And you spend so much

Carly: I’m never letting you go.

Singers: Life making love life makes us love

Jax: That's good. Hey, where are the boys?

Carly: Um, they're at my mom's -- all night long.

Jax: All night long?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Jax: Really?

Carly: Mm-hmm.

Logan: You know, I'd like to think I have Lulu's father's approval. But since that's obviously never going to happen, I think it's important for you to know that Lulu and I are seeing each other and, you know, I really don't think there's anything you can do about that.

Luke: You think not?

Logan: I won't ever hurt your daughter again.

Luke: No, you won’t. You know, I just came across some very interesting information that could --

Lulu: Dad? What are you two talking about?

Luke: You, baby -- what else?

Lulu: Hmm. I'm sure you were telling Logan that you're okay with us being together, because if you were threatening him, we would have a serious problem.

Ric: What do we got?

David: I ran IDs on both the victims. They work for Anthony Zacchara.

Ric: Sonny's gone missing.

David: It could be retaliation.

Ric: Which means we could be at the start of a full-scale mob war.

[Phone rings]

Officer: It's one of the victim's phones.


Trevor: The handlers aren't answering their phones.

Johnny: You know what happened.

Trevor: Nothing happened yet.

Johnny: My father killed them. I’m the only one that can stop him now.

Patrick: You're right.

Leyla: About what?

Patrick: Everything.

Leyla: That's always nice to hear, but you're going to have to be more specific.

Patrick: This whole thing with Robin looking for a sperm donor -- we were in a committed relationship, I am on the rebound, that's my reality, and I can't change that.

Leyla: Okay, so you can ask her to the ball -- I'm sure you'll have a lovely time.

Patrick: No, I'm not going to ask Robin. Leyla, I'm looking forward, not back. What I see is a bright, beautiful woman, with a love of medicine and race car driving and -- Leyla, come to the ball with me. I want to dance with you in your floral gown and hold you in my arms and spin you around the ballroom.

Leyla: I've heard enough.

Patrick: So the answer's still no?

Leyla: The answer's yes, I'll go to the ball with you.

Patrick: Yes, you're going to come, you'll go?

Leyla: Yeah, yeah.

Patrick: Okay, well, where are you going?

Leyla: Dr. Drake, this is where we work. Plus, I like a little mystery. Don't you?

Carly: "Meet u at the ball."

Spinelli: You know, the waltz is difficult to master without a partner.

Jason: You're just fine.

Spinelli: No, I would do a lot better with Stone Cold's assistance -- assistance? If you could just consent to follow me --

Jason: If you -- if you try to dance with me, I'll break your arms.

Spinelli: Okay, but I'm -- I must impress the Blond One with my prowess.

Jason: Which blond one are we talking about now -- Lulu or Nadine?

Spinelli: No, the seemingly sweet one, Nadine -- she's -- she's merely a friend. But, I mean, Lulu is the maiden that holds my heart, and the unworthy one can only deceive her for so long. You know, before the night's over, he's sure to revert to his dastardly ways, and the Jackal must be there, you know --

[Knock on door]

Jason: What do you want?

Ric: Where were you half an hour ago?

Spinelli: Here with the Jackal -- waltzing.

Jason: What's this about?

Ric: Two men who work for Anthony Zacchara were shot dead in an alley. Sonny's fallen off the face of the earth. Is there any chance that this is retaliation because Sonny is dead?

Logan: Your father still seems to think that I'm a clone of my old man.

Lulu: Dad, when are you going to get that Logan is his own person?

Luke: When he stands up and acts like a man instead of a weasel.

Lulu: I feel like I'm beating my head against a wall.

Logan: No, it's all right. It's just going to take time to prove to your father that I've changed.

Luke: You do that.

Logan: You all right?

Lulu: Yes, I'm fine, I'm fine. I'm not going to let my dad ruin my day. Did you, um, rent your white tie and tails?

Logan: Yeah -- I look like a waiter.

Lulu: I'm sure you look handsome.

Logan: It won't matter because everybody's going to be looking at my gorgeous partner as we waltz around the dance floor.

Lulu: Oh, God, I hope not. I'm a total klutz at dancing, probably because I never learned how, so --

Logan: Why? Your parents anti-dance or something?

Lulu: Um -- actually, my parents danced a lot -- my dad's a fantastic dancer, he just never taught me.

Logan: You wish he had?

Lulu: Well, you know that party I was telling you about with the finger bowls?

Logan: Yeah?

Lulu: The orchestra was playing this music from the 1940s, and there was a girl with her dad, and he was twirling her all around and, you know, they were doing all these fun moves, and she was looking up at him with the biggest grin on her face and, yeah, I wish I could've danced like that with my dad, too.

Logan: So you're saying you've never learned to waltz?

Lulu: Nope.

Logan: Well, my dear, you're in luck, because my mother taught me when I was a little boy.

Lulu: Are you serious? I have to see this to believe it.

Logan: Uh, is -- is that a challenge?

Lulu: Uh -- yeah. Prove it.

Logan: Okay. All right, okay, give me your hand. Now put your other arm on my shoulder.

Lulu: This much I know.

Logan: All right, be patient.

Lulu: Okay.

Logan: Okay, now -- ahem -- we're going to start, uh -- think, I got to do this backwards. All right, right foot back.

[Music plays]

Logan: Okay, now, back, side, bring them together, okay --

Lulu: Okay.

Logan: Now, left foot forward, side, together.

Lulu: Okay.

Logan: Okay? You want to try it again?

Lulu: Yeah.

Logan: All right, you ready? Right foot back --

Lulu: Sorry, sorry!

Logan: It's okay, it's okay. Yeah, let's try it again.

Lulu: Okay. All right, go.

Logan: All right. Right foot back, side, together, left foot forward, side, together. Okay, right foot back, side, together. Okay, now, don't look at your feet, look at me.

Lulu: Oh -- okay, okay, okay. Okay.

Logan: Okay?

Lulu: Yes.

Singer: 'Cause there's something about you now

Logan: See?

Lulu: I'm getting it!

Logan: You're a natural, look at you.

Singer: Figure it out

Lulu: Well, almost.

Singer: And there's something

Logan: Let's try this again.

Singer: About you now everything beautiful if I only believe

Trevor: John, your father's only coming home if he knows that you're here.

Johnny: Will you at least send someone to check on her?

Trevor: Of course.

[Glass breaks]

Nikolas: Hey.

Emily: Hi.


Nikolas: How you doing?

Emily: Good.

Nikolas: See? There's a storm coming.

Emily: Hmm.

Nikolas: Hopefully, it'll end before tomorrow night.

Emily: Yeah. I can't imagine our guests wanting to ride across the harbor in the pouring rain.

Nikolas: Right -- staggering off the docks in soaking-wet clothes. So much for formal elegance, huh?

Emily: Hmm.

Nikolas: I really shouldn’t joke about it. The party would be ruined if it storms tomorrow night.

Emily: Hey, if people come, it's going to be wonderful, and if they don't, then we're going to have the entire ballroom to ourselves.

Nikolas: No, no, it's your dream and I want it to be perfect for you.

Emily: It's going to be perfect -- as long as you're with me.

[Emily chuckles]

Nikolas: You know how happy you make me?

Emily: Mm-hmm. We're going to be happy for years to come.


>> On the next "General Hospital" --

Emily: Shall we go welcome our guests?

Carly: I'm ready for anything.

Nikolas: I love you more than life.

Lucky: I thought we were going to spend the rest of our lives together.

Jason: Tell me about Anthony Zacchara.

Nikolas: No!
