[Crowd murmuring, soft jazz music playing]

Scott: Nothing like a Nurses' Ball, huh? Pretty girls, singing and dancing --

Ava: Yeah, you know what? I think I-I've seen enough. Let's go.

Scott: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! We haven't seen all of Lucy's dresses yet.

Ava: You know something, Scotty, you stay, you enjoy the dresses. I'll go alone.

Sonny: Why are you leaving? Party's just begun.

Lulu: Hey, Josslyn.

Josslyn: Hi.

Lulu: Are you getting nervous?

Josslyn: A little. But I just keep telling myself, even if it's less than great --

Michael: Oh, you're going to do amazing, Josslyn.

Josslyn: It is for a worthy cause. Right, Mom? I thought you said your dad wasn't coming.

Carly: I guess he changed his mind.

Sam: These are from me, Mom...

Kristina: Aww.

Sam: ...And Molly, and Scout, of course. We're so excited to see you perform!

Kristina: [Sighs]

Sam: Love you.

Kristina: [Laughs]

[Knocking on door]

Lucy: Ladies, ladies, guess what. You're up next, you're up next!

Emma: Sam!

Sam: Emma! Hi, sweetie!

Lucy: Oh, wait, wait, wait. Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Sam: It's so good to see you.

Lucy: Excuse me. No, no, you can't be here.

Sam: What?

Lucy: You're distracting my performers.

Sam: Oh, I am. I'm distracting.

Lucy: Okay. Come on, come on, come on.

Sam: Break a leg!

Lucy: Scoot! I'll see you later!


Jason: Where did this come from?

Anna: Can you just tell me? Just -- just tell me where the Chimera is. Who has it?

Charlotte: Is that part of our act? What does it do?

Jake: It's powerful magic. It comes at the very end.

[Monitor beeping]

Nelle: [Groans]

Kiki: Nelle? You need anything?

Nelle: Michael.

Ava: Would you please stop? Get your hands off me.

Sonny: The announcer said you made a donation in Morgan's name.

Ava: You have a problem with that?

Sonny: I have a problem with everything you do, and I have a big problem with what you did to Morgan.

Dante: Hey, Sonny. You made it. Didn't think we, uh, see you tonight.

Scott: Ava! Ava, there you are. So, I, uh, I got us some martinis. I think we should get back to the ball.

Ava: Yeah.

Scott: Okay? Come on.

Dante: Hey... what was that about?

Laura: Hi, honey!

Lulu: Hi! [Smooches]

Laura: Is Charlotte here?

Lulu: She is, and she's wearing the dress I bought her.

Laura: Mm-hmm.

Lulu: She loves it.

Laura: Oh, that's wonderful. Where is she? I want to get a picture of you two together.

Lulu: Oh, no, you will have to wait. She is backstage practicing for her big debut.

Laura: Oh, she's performing?

Lulu: As one of Jake's assistants in his magic act.

Laura: Oh, that's adorable.

[Both laugh]

Charlotte: How does the trick work?

Jake: It's a surprise.

Charlotte: But how can I help if I don't know what to do?

Jake: No! You can't touch it.

Anna: Alex told me that this thing is lethal. Who did you sell it to?

Valentin: I told you, the buyer is dead. The Chimera is gathering dust in the basement of some warehouse somewhere. It's not a threat to anyone. You, on the other hand, continue to wreck havoc in my marriage and my life.

Anna: [Sighs]

Lucy: Hey, everybody. Hello there. Please, can everybody take their seats? Now we can continue with our fantastic fab-o show. You know, every year, we do come together for a common cause, which is to find the cure for HIV/AIDS. And thanks to each and every one of you and all your amazing donations...

Valentin: You gonna ignore me all night?

Nina: I'm listening to Lucy.

Lucy: ...Staff of General Hospital. We are actually saving lives each and every day. And, you know, the staff goes that extra mile, because one time a year on a special night like this...

Sam: Hey.

Jason: Hi.

Sam: We should get to our seats. Kristina's about to perform.

Lucy: ...And this year, it's unbelievable...

Sam: What's the matter?

Lucy: ...Than we've ever had.

Sam: What is that?

Lucy: So this is going to be the best show ever. Now, ladies and gentlemen, are you all ready for some female trouble with a capital "T"? Please, put your hands together for these fabulous ladies.


[Sara Bareilles's "Brave" plays]

Amy: You can be amazing you can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug

Valerie: You can be the outcast or be the backlash of somebody's lack of love

Emma: Or you can start speaking up

Kristina: Nothing's gonna hurt you the way that words do when they settle 'neath your skin

Amy: Kept on the inside and no sunlight sometimes a shadow wins

Kristina: I wonder what would happen if you

All: Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly I wanna see you be brave with what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly, I wanna see you be brave just wanna see you I just wanna see you I just wanna see you I wanna see you be brave just wanna see you I just wanna see you I just wanna see you I wanna see you be brave

Emma: Everybody's been there everybody's been stared down by the enemy fallen for the fear and done some disappearing bow down to the mighty

Kristina: Don't run stop holding your tongue

Amy: Maybe there's a way out of the cage where you live maybe one of these days you can let the light in and show me

All: How big your brave is say what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly I wanna see you be brave with what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly, I wanna see you be brave

Kristina: Innocence, your history of silence

Valerie: Won't do you any good

Amy: Did you think it would? Let your words be anything but empty why don't you tell them the truth?

Emma: Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly

All: I wanna see you be brave

Emma: With what you wanna say and let the words fall out honestly

All: I wanna see you be bra-a-a-a-a-ve just wanna see you I just wanna see you just wanna see you

Emma: I wanna see you be brave

All: Just wanna see you I just wanna see you just wanna see you

Emma: I wanna see you be brave

All: I just wanna see you I just wanna see you just wanna see you I just wanna see you I just wanna see you just wanna see you

Emma: I wanna see you be brave

[Cheers and applause]

Lucy: Whoo!

Anna: Yes!

Lucy: Wow, wow, wow. Aren't they wonderful? Look at you -- beautiful and talented and strong and adorable. Thank you, guys. One more time! Whoo!

[Cheers and applause]

Lucy: Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. [Laughs] All right, ladies and gentlemen, now we're going to take a little, short break, and this gives you the opportunity to visit our open bar. So please go enjoy yourselves, and make sure you stop by the silent auction item table, because we have items you're not going to believe -- they're so lovely. So please, bid, bid, bid, spend money, bid. Thank you. [Chuckles]

Bobbie: Okay, what did I miss?

Josslyn: Oh, well, we were having a great time until Sonny showed up.

Bobbie: Sonny's here?

Carly: Yes, and he has every right to be here. This night's very important to him, so... we're going to leave it at that, okay?

Dante: What happened?!

Sonny: Ava made a donation in Morgan's name. [Sighs]

Dante: I didn't realize that.

Sonny: It just brought it home. A year ago, Morgan was -- was doing better -- he was happy, he was going to build a life. Now he's gone. And Ava's here trading on Morgan's name to make her look good. I ain't standing for that!

Michael: Hey, Kiki. Sorry to keep you waiting. I couldn't hear you in the ballroom.

Kiki: I'm sorry to interrupt your evening. I couldn't get in touch with your grandmother.

Michael: Okay?

Kiki: I wanted to update her on a patient -- Nelle Hayes. She's doing okay, but she could really use a friend.

Sam: Hey. Hey, hey, hey, are you still worried about the nightmare?

Jason: No, I think I have something more important to worry about. Look at this. I found it right over there.

Sam: It's a Chimera.

Jason: Yeah. Tell me that's a coincidence.

Sam: Do you think Jake brought it?

Jason: Who else?

Emma: Are we practicing the last trick?

Charlotte: Jake said it's a surprise. He won't even let me touch it.

Jake: No one else knows how this magic works. Only me.

Anna: Hi, Robert, can you hear me? Yeah? Um, I'm at the Nurses' Ball. Oh, Emma was amazing. She surpassed herself. She was -- she -- you would've loved it. Yeah, I'm very proud. You would be, too. Um, I'm not calling about that. The Chimera -- what does it actually do?

Valentin: So, you are going to ignore me all night?

Nina: Are you having the steak or the salmon?

Jordan: Um...

Curtis: We haven't decided yet. Valentin? You might be more comfortable back at your own table.

Valentin: Yeah, not without my wife. Please don't shut me out.

[Soft jazz music playing]

Anna: What the hell was the Bureau thinking, making the damn thing in the first place? Yeah, no, I-I know. Yeah, we have to find it. I'll keep working with Valentin. Okay. Bye. Bye. Hi, André.

André: Ah, Anna. Please excuse me -- I'm having a good time tonight, and I don't want to spoil it.

Anna: Oh, no, wait. Have you been offended?

André: Yeah, that's one way of putting it. Good night.

Anna: Whatever you think I said, that wasn't me. That wasn' I didn't say any of... I don't know what happened. That was my sister, Alex.

Valentin: Will you give me a chance to make this right?

Nina: I gave you a chance. I gave you a chance, and you chose Anna every single time.

[Soft jazz music playing]

Nina: I have nothing to say to you.

Valentin: All right, maybe... the time for talking is over.

[Music continues]

Lucy: Shh! Harry! Harry, please just listen to me. Okay, l-- Dr. Obrecht is up next. Please make sure she is ready. Yes, she actually is scheduled to perform. Thank you.

[Knock on door]

Valentin: Ms. Coe?

Lucy: Uh, come in.

Valentin: Been looking for you.

Lucy: Mr. Cassadine. Uh, look, all I know is that you did make a very generous donation, so thank you. I also know that you shot someone that means a lot to me -- Dr. Kevin Collins. So, one does not cancel the other. Listen, um, if you'll excuse me, I, uh... I got to get ready.

Valentin: I'm here to up my donation.

Lucy: [Sighs] By how much?

Valentin: To seven figures.

Lucy: In exchange for what?

Sonny: I'm not going to stop till I find out why Morgan died.

Dante: We do know.

Sonny: What do you mean, "We do know"?

Dante: We know. Olivia Jerome set the bomb for Julian, and Morgan stole Julian's car.

Sonny: Explain m-Morgan's pills.

Dante: Wh-what are you talking about?

Sonny: Morgan's prescription was 600 milligrams of lithium. The pills they found at the -- the bottle they found at The Floating Rib? 300 milligrams.

Dante: So he was given the wrong dose.

Sonny: Dr. Maddox says that the pharmacy said it all checked out -- he was given the correct pills.

Dante: Then the pills in the bottle... they weren't his?

Sonny: I don't know. That's what I'm going to find out... one way or another.

André: André Maddox. That's right, Morgan Corinthos. Did you run the tests on the pill bottle? What did you find?

Valerie: Where do you think you're going?

Kristina: My mom's house. The three of us are going to put our feet up, eat pizza, and watch the rest of the Nurses' Ball on TV.

Valerie: You might have the right idea.

Kristina: What are you talking about?

Valerie: [Sighs] I forgot my lipstick, and I can't go out there and face my ex and his new girl -- who happens to be my boss -- looking less than my best.

Kristina: Then we're lucky that Burt's Bees is sponsoring the ball this year, aren't we?

Valerie: Hmm.

Kristina: Have you tried their lipstick? It comes in like 18 different shades, and it's 100% natural. Try this.

Valerie: Hmm. Okay. I like this. Yeah. [Chuckles] This is perfect. How do I look?

Kristina: Amazing.

Valerie: [Laughs]

Kristina: And since it moisturizes for eight hours, your lips are going to feel soft, too. It's a bonus.

Valerie: [Chuckles] Thank you.

Kristina: Aww.

Jason: Where's Jake?

Elizabeth: He's backstage. I was just gonna go get him. Why?

Jason: 'Cause of this.

Sam: Is that his?

Elizabeth: I don't know what that is. I've never seen it before.

Jason: It's a Chimera. Could he have bought it?

Elizabeth: He doesn't have his own money. Could somebody have given it to him?

Jason: But who would do that?

Jake: What's going on? Are you guys talking about me?

[Soft jazz music playing]

[Indistinct conversation]

Valerie: Hi, everyone. Enjoying your night?

Jordan: Yeah.

Curtis: Oh, yeah, I'm trying to.

Jordan: You ladies did a-a really great job up there.

Valerie: Glad you enjoyed it.

[Music continues]

Curtis: Well, that's, uh... that's one way to do it.

Jordan: [Sighs] Do what?

Curtis: You know, show that you're over someone -- that you've moved on. Nina, I hope you took notes. You need to do that... to Valentin.

Nina: I'm not sure I want to.

Lucy: Ladies and gentlemen, we have a late-breaking change in the schedule. Um, unfortunately, Dr. Liesl Obrecht is unable to perform.



Lucy: [Clears throat] As I was saying, Dr. Obrecht cannot perform, but in her stead, we have someone just as rich -- uh, just as good -- good.


Valentin: This is for my wife... ...'cause I love you. [Sits at the piano and sings and plays Billy Joel's "And So It Goes"] In every heart, there is a room a sanctuary safe and strong to heal the wounds from lovers past until a new one comes along I spoke to you in cautious tones you answered me with no pretense and still I feel I said too much my silence is my self-defense and every time I've held a rose it seems I only felt the thorns and so it goes, and so it goes and so will you soon, I suppose but if my silence made you leave then that would be my worst mistake so I will share this room with you and you can have this heart to break and this is why my eyes are closed it's just as well for all I've seen and so it goes, and so it goes and you're the only one who knows so I would choose to be with you that's if the choice were mine to make but you can make decisions, too and you can have this heart to break and so it goes, and so it goes and you're the only one who knows

[Crowd murmuring]

Lucy: Um, well, um... Valentin Cassadine, everyone.


Lucy: Thank you so very much, Mr. Cassadine. [Inhales deeply] Well, um, that's what we love about our Nurses' Ball -- it's always full of surprises, isn't it? Well, and that's what's so wonderful about tonight -- it brings all of us together for this amazing common cause.

Curtis: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Nina. Nina, listen, wait. Hey, hey. Don't do this to yourself, okay? It's just a song.


Anna: That was so beautiful.

Valentin: I wasn't trying to impress you.

Anna: Oh, you can do more than impress her. Why don't you just be the man that Nina and Charlotte deserve? Just tell me what I need to know.

Laura: Charlotte, your dress is just beautiful!

Charlotte: Lulu picked it out.

Laura: Really? Well, you look wonderful.

Lulu: Aren't you supposed to be getting ready for your big act? I can't wait to see you as Jake's assistant.

Charlotte: I don't think there's going to be an act.

[Soft jazz music playing]

Jason: Jake, we need to ask you a question. Have you seen this before?

[Music continues]

Jason: Jake?

Elizabeth: Jake, your dad asked you a question.

Jason: Look, son, you're not in trouble. I just need the truth here. Is this yours? Was that a shrug? You don't know if this is yours?

Elizabeth: Honey, what's wrong?

Jake: I don't feel good.

Elizabeth: Okay, you don't feel well, like you're nervous about performing? 'Cause you were scared last year, too, remember? And you did really well. And Franco got up onstage and helped you out. I'm sure he'd be willing to do it again, right?

Franco: Oh, yeah, absolutely, absolutely. I've always wanted to be a magician's assistant.

Jason: Or we can forget the whole thing.

Elizabeth: That's right. You don't have to do anything you don't want to do. Okay?

Dante: I got my own questions about Morgan's pills, like how the hell did they end up at The Floating Rib the night of the robbery?

Sonny: You said the thugs wouldn't talk.

Dante: They won't, but I got to talk to Ava and Lucy again.

Sonny: Ava was there that night? Why didn't you tell me?

Dante: Because it could be nothing more than Ava and Lucy being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Carly: What happened to Michael?

Bobbie: I haven't seen him since he got that phone call earlier.

Carly: Right.

Josslyn: Oh, yeah, n-no, he left.

Carly: No, he wouldn't do that before you perform.

Josslyn: It's no big deal, Mom. Uh, he just said that something came up, and I told him it was okay to go.

Bobbie: What came up, Josslyn?

Michael: Thank you for calling me -- for, uh, looking for my grandmother.

Kiki: Yeah, I thought she might want to know that Nelle asked for you.

[Telephone rings in distance]

Michael: You're right. Thank you. [Clears throat]

[Monitor beeping]

[Door closes]

Michael: [Sighs] [Sighs]

Dante: Whenever Ava's name comes up, you get reckless, like when you violated your house arrest to confront her. Best thing I think you guys can do is just stay away from each other.

Sonny: You know what, you've wasted enough time with me. Why -- why don't -- Lulu's wondering what happened to you.

Dante: Yeah, probably.

Sonny: I want you to go ahead and go. I'll be fine.

[Soft jazz music playing]

Sonny: [Sighs]

André: Sonny.

Sonny: Whoa! I was just going to call you. You -- anything from the lab?

André: They found trace evidence of an inert substance at the bottom of Morgan's pill bottle.

Sonny: I'm sorry, what does that mean?

André: It's possible the pill that crumbled in Morgan's bottle... was a placebo.

Anna: We can talk in here quietly. So...

Valentin: Don't, just don't. Please don't. You and your sister have jeopardized everything that I love. And you know the worst part? I let you because every time you come running to me, I revert to exactly what I was -- lonely, crippled, stuttering, desperate to matter to you. Well, the only things that matter to me are my wife and my daughter. So if you ever gave a damn about me... let me go. Just leave me alone.

Jake: Mom, are you sure... I don't have to perform?

Elizabeth: I'm positive.

Jake: What if something bad happens?

Elizabeth: Because you don't do your magic act? Honey, nothing bad is going to happen. The only thing that's going to happen is that we might get out of here a little sooner than we thought.

Jason: Yeah, I'm -- I'm okay with that.

Sam: We all are.

Jake: Can I still have dessert?

Elizabeth: [Scoffs] Absolutely. [Laughs]

Franco: All right, so, is -- is that your decision, then?

Jake: Yeah.

Elizabeth: Okay! No magic show.

Bobbie: Looking for Sonny?

Carly: I don't understand. What's he doing here? He said he was going to stay home and read Morgan's journal. Why is he here, and what did he want with Ava?

[Soft jazz music playing]

Sonny: You think Morgan... was taking a placebo instead of lithium?

André: It would explain his erratic behavior, his rapid loss of control.

Sonny: Someone set him up. They tampered with his medication so he would have a breakdown.

André: What are you going to do?

Sonny: I'm going to find out who it is.

Ava: I'm telling you, if Sonny even suspects that I tampered with Morgan --

Scott: Ava, Ava, Ava -- for the last time, I covered your tracks. There's no way Sonny is ever going to find out.

[Soft jazz music playing]

Lucy: Hey, there, everybody. I hope you're having a good time. Tell me you're having a good, fabulous time, yes?

[Cheers and applause]

Lucy: Yay! [Chuckles] I'm so glad you are all here, and do not go anywhere 'cause we are just getting started. And I have to tell you, it's a very special thrill always for me to introduce a newcomer to the Nurses' Ball stage.

[Monitor beeping]

[Cell phone rings]

Michael: Hey. Is it time?

Josslyn: It is. Michael, why did you think this was a good idea?

Michael: Oh, well, because I want everyone to know that my little sister is a rock star.

Josslyn: Says you.

Michael: Absolutely. Wait, break a leg, all right? Keep your phone close. I'm with you. And so is Nelle.

Lucy: So let's give her a very warm welcome -- a great addition to our Nurses' Ball family, Miss Josslyn Jacks.


["It's Not Over Yet" plays]

Josslyn: [Sings] What if I'm wrong, what if you're right? And I'm running against time I'll never know what might've been if I walk away tonight now I know what the truth is and I know I can do this I could give up on everything that I ever wanted in my life I could believe in fear itself and never try but it's not just one of those crazy dreams that I can just forget it's not just in my heart, it's in my head it's not over yet it's not over yet what if I said I'm not letting go? That I'm stronger than before and I want to show you what I am made of it don't matter if I fall I pick up all the pieces and I will take my chances I could give up on everything that I ever wanted in my life I could believe in fear itself and never try but it's not just one of those crazy dreams that I can just forget it's not just in my heart, it's in my head it's not over yet it's not over yet like a road that is winding a story with no ending I know I'm going to find my wa-a-a-y

Nelle: You're here.

Michael: Surprise.

Josslyn: I could give up on everything I ever wanted in my life I could believe in fear itself and never try but it's not just one of those crazy dreams that I can just forget it's not just in my heart, it's in my head it's not over yet it's not over yet it's not over ye-e-e-e-e-t

[Crowd murmuring]

[Cheers and applause]

Jake: Mom, can we go home now?

Elizabeth: I think there's some more performances to see.

Franco: Yeah, but none of them magic acts, sadly. Um, but, you know, what I'm thinking is that maybe you could do a command performance at home if you wanted. You know, just for the family.

Elizabeth: Speaking of which, where is your magic box?

Jake: I left it backstage.

Emma: What are we doing back here?

Charlotte: Jake doesn't want to do the magic act anymore. Maybe we can do it ourselves?

Emma: I don't know. We haven't learned all the tricks yet.

Charlotte: I bet we can do it. Let's start with this one.

Emma: Okay.

Jason: You know what, you don't have to call a cab -- I'm ready to leave myself. We can go together.

Sam: No, no, no, no, no. You stay. I know you're worried about Jake.

Jason: I did not like how he reacted to this necklace.

Sam: I know, which is exactly why you should stay. See you at home?

Jason: I love you.

Sam: Love you, too.

Jason: Go home safe.

Sam: Okay.

Jason: [Clears throat] [Sighs]

Griffin: Hi, excuse me, uh, have you seen Emma?

Jason: No.

Griffin: What are you doing with Anna's necklace?

Anna: I get what you're doing. You want to break with the past and just leave it buried, right?

Valentin: Why not? You did. Why can't I?

Anna: Because the people we love are in danger. You think I'm jeopardizing the people you love? What do you think the Chimera is doing out there, unaccounted for? You need to tell me where to find it.

Valentin: I don't know.

Anna: You do!

Valentin: I told you -- the only person who knows is dead.

Anna: Who is that?

Valentin: I sold the Chimera to... Helena Cassadine.

Charlotte: I don't know how to open it.

Emma: Maybe that's the trick. Is there a hidden button to press?

Charlotte: I found it!

[Chimera beeps]

Nelle: You missed Joss' performance.

Michael: Uh, no, I didn't. We just listened to it.

Nelle: But --

Michael: I told Josslyn that I was coming to see you, and she was all for it. So here I am, for whatever you need.

Scott: Ava, come on, drink up.

Ava: I never meant for anything bad to happen. You know that. Morgan was -- he was erratic, volatile. I only did it to protect Kiki.

Scott: It doesn't matter why you did it. Morgan is dead. Case closed, okay? It's over.

[Soft jazz music playing]

Carly: What happened? Why are you here?

Sonny: I finally have answers about Morgan.

On the next "General Hospital" --

Valentin (to Lulu): Is there a problem?

Curtis (to Jordan): You still don't think I'm good enough for you.

Sonny (to Carly): I know why he spiraled out of control.

Scott (to Ava): You gotta get out of here.

Ned (to Olivia): You are going to be great.

Jason (to Griffin): This can't be coincidence.  This has to mean something.

Anna (on the phone): I think I know where the product is.

Jake: Stop!
