oh, these good, good times


hold on to these good times alexis, uh... who didn't gail invite? We ready? Um... you know, I don't think I'm ever gonna be ready, but...

[ Sighs ] Carry on. Okay. Hello, everyone. Good morning. And thank you for joining me here as we honor the final wishes of our beloved gail baldwin. She has asked that I hand out envelopes to each one of you. And inside the envelope, you will find a piece of the original blueprint for general hospital exactly as it was when it opened 56 years ago today. So, her instructions are that you go to the location of your blueprint. And then, when you get there, you'll find another envelope with your name on it. You pick up that envelope, and you bring it back here to the 10th floor with your envelope intact. No peeking.

[ Chuckles ] Exactly. Well, excuse me, but the hospital has changed

a lot in 56 years.

[ Chuckles ] Some of the spaces are just gone or they're turned into something completely different. Not up for the challenge, monica? Watch me. This is exciting. I love scavenger hunts. And I happen to love mysterious envelopes. I can't believe that gail did all of this. Alexis: Well, as we all know, general hospital was never far from gail's heart. Now, if you didn't have the privilege of knowing gail, any of you here, please know that you were invited with a special purpose in mind. So, wait. What happens if we can't find our envelope? It's very important to her that you do. There you go, ladies. Thank you. For you. Ah. Oh, you know, taking direction is not my strong suit. I had a habit of not listening to gail, and usually -- no, every time, it ended up being a disaster, so... the privilege of listening to gail one last time.

[ Sighs deeply ] So... whatever you say, gail. For gail. Yes. For gail.

[ Dog whimpering ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Locker door slams ] Hello?

[ Sighs ] Oh, of course gail would have sent us to the same place. The old cafeteria. Yep. Where you always interrupted our lunches. Oh, please. That was you. Ooh, isn't it nice that we've matured and we're not at each other's throats anymore?

[ Locker door creaks ] Yes, so nice.

[ Locker door creaks ] Aha! Hello, stranger! "Hello, stranger." Gail used to say that all the time. Yeah. Yeah, she was known for it, even if you'd just seen her the day before. Well, speaking of seeing, any chance you've seen my envelope? No. But if I had, I probably wouldn't tell you. Oh, thank you, leslie. Well, it's a moot point anyway, because... bingo! Is it true that those showers are now co-ed?

[ Chuckles ] Well, welcome to the 21st century! Imagine if we'd had that back in the day. Oh! Never mind. You would never have left the locker room. And what is that supposed to mean? That no male in this hospital would have been safe. Well, at least I knew how to live a little, have some fun. You were so busy being saintly earth mother, you had no time. "Saintly earth mother"?! If the shoe fits... well, it's okay, because I guess it's really better than "slut." What did you call me? You heard me!

[ Door slams ] I've been expecting you.

My envelope was waiting here, too.

[ Indistinct conversations in distance ] I still miss tony. And I am thankful every day for the gift you both gave maxie. Well, that was tony. At first, I couldn't wrap my head around the fact that bj was gone. Tony knew right away what had to be done. As horrible as it was, as much as I miss barbara jean, it very well could've been that two little girls died on that day. The fact that one of them survived is because of this hospital and everyone in it. G.H. Isn't perfect. Nothing is. There are big losses along the way. But you know what? There are a lot more wins. And that is something to be celebrated. Yeah.

[ Chuckles ] Curtis: I don't know, auntie. Jordan said she's fine to go to mercy and that I'm making too much of it. Maybe i am. No, you're not. Now, don't get me wrong -- mercy's a fine hospital, terrific facilities. But [Inhales] It's the people here. The warmth, the heart. That's what makes G.H. So extraordinary.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Laura: Hey. How's the envelope hunt going?

[ Chuckles ]

[ Groans ] You know, I've been looking at this thing from every angle, and I-I-I can'T... figure anything out. I mean, there was an x-ray room there. Now there's a wall. Mm-hmm. Uh, you know, I-I just... I just want to get this right, for -- for gail's sake. I know. I know. Can I help you?

[ Sighs, chuckles ]

[ Laughs ] Well, you just smiled like you did when you were 17. Oh, I do not. Yeah, you did. You did. You just smiled just like that. Mm. Yeah. Well, let's see here. Well, I got to tell you, you know, if gail hadn't come and gotten me out of greenwich village -- you know, for lee -- I wouldn't have met you. Imagine that. We wouldn't have gotten married and had all those ups and downs. We would've not had all that history. Aha! I found it! I found it! Ah!

[ Laughs ] There you go. Wow. No, I can't imagine that, scott. Well, just lucky that we're...stayed friends, huh? Yeah, very lucky. What do you think is in this? I don't know. What do you want it to be? Advice. On what? On how I'm gonna continue on without lee and gail.

 I-I'm sorry that I didn't let you know what I was doing with jordan.

[ Sighs ] I put you in a bad spot. You know, I asked you to defend the indefensible without any warning or explanation, and it's just not fair. Yeah. U-uh, not my greatest day in court. And then to add insult to injury, I-I didn't reach out to you when gail died. Or when she was alive, for that matter. I didn't know her. Never even met her. I'm a terrible son. I expect all of the benefits of having you as my father -- you know, all of the unending loyalty and support -- and in response, I make no substantial effort.

[ Scoffs ] W-what is that? W-why are you [Scoffs]Ing? Well, I'll tell you why. Because [Grunts] You just described me. That's exactly how I treated my father -- and gail, to a lesser degree.

[ Clears throat ] I felt that they were always gonna be there for me and I didn't have to put any time in whatsoever. Well, that sounds familiar. Well, listen. You know, I-I get it now. It -- it's -- it'S... it's tough when the shoe's on the other foot and you now have a kid going through something and they don't let you in on it, you know nothing about what's going on. You're completely out of the loop. You know, I think kids should spend time with their parents and, you know, just hang out with them a little bit. I-I get it. I get it. You're right, and I'm sorry. Okay. I mean, listen. It's nothing -- I don't [Groans] Hold anything against you. I know that you were going through a lot -- a lot of crazy stuff. Some was legit, some was not legit. I'm not one to exaggerate. Yeah, but I...would never, ever turn my back on you, because parents, t-they don't do that. Lee, for example, you know what he would do? He would give me a very stiff talking-to. And gail? Gail, well, she was a little... nicer about things and more accepting and... you know, I-I'm not really like that. But, franco, you are my son. I love you. And because of you, I now know what my parents went through and how much they must have loved me. So, I'm gonna come over there and I'm gonna give you a hug. Okay? Okay. Julian: So, you're the one running the show. What the hell am i doing here? I didn't even know gail baldwin. Neither did franco. But h-he's her grandson. Step-grandson. Well, they're still family. I'm no one to that woman. Well, you missed out, then, because I got the privilege of being her lawyer for five years. She was a really wonderful woman. And...easy to talk to. Oh, my god. What? You told her about us. I may have, you know, broughtyou up every now and then. About us. And however misguided... I have a feeling the reason she brought you here was for me. So she's matchmaking from the great beyond. Well, I'm sure her intentions were very good. I, apparently, just didn't make it clear enough that you and i are over. Done. Finito. Forever and ever and ever. Amen. What are you doing? Um, well, you know, I was just thinking to myself that, uh, I don't know, maybe, uh, I might have heard she's a really insightful woman, and...who knows? Maybe she knew you better than... you knew yourself. Yep, '94.

[ Gasps ] '98. Ohh! 2013! I love -- lucy, what are you doing? Oh! Uh... well, I was following my little blueprint thingy all around, and it brought me exactly to where I had all my old nurses' ball dresses delivered! Aren't they gorgeous, beautiful? Yeah, some of them. Oh. Well, I had this fantastic idea. Here's what I'm thinking. I am going to sell each and every one of these and the tuxes -- any outfits from the nurses' ball -- and I'm gonna donate the entire proceeds to the ball. You know, it is coming up right around the corner. Yeah.

[ Gasping ] Oh. Now what? Oh, monica. Look. [ Exhales ] Oh, that was alan'S. Yeah. That man sure could rock a pocket square like nobody's business.

[ Both laugh ] He did have panache.

[ Gasps ] You remember the year... I think he opened the nurses' ball with that song from "cinderella"? He made every single woman there feel like a beautiful princess. But you know what? You -- you were always his queen. And I was greedy and young and stupid, and I'm so very sorry. Oh, no. Hey, lucy, don't be. Don't be. That is water under a very old, rickety bridge.

[ Chuckles softly ] You're not gonna sell that, are you? It belongs to you. Thank you.

[ Groans ] Okay.

[ Sighs ] Thinking of gail? Yeah. Ah. And just life, you know? Hey, do you remember the first time that we met? Yeah. Yeah?

[ Laughing ] Yeah.

[ Laughs ] Uh-huh. I thought that you were trouble with a capital "T." But I could also sense your generous heart and that inner sweetness that you have. Think it might've been the dimples a little bit?

[ Laughs ] No.

[ Laughing ] No. I think that's just you. I think you're a good guy in a bad guy's clothes. Well, I appreciate that. So, what are you doing?

[ Inhales deeply ] I guess I'm just sort of feeling reflective.

[ Chuckles ] We've come pretty far, wouldn't you say? I mean, despite our struggles, um, our losses. I just -- I wanted to... I want to tell you that I appreciate what you're doing as far as shining a light on mental health care. It's -- it's helped destigmatize everything. You know what I mean? Mm-hmm. And you're a big part of that. You know that, right? I was watching you and your openness about dealing with your bipolar disease and your honesty about your experiences with it. That gave me the strength to do the same, you know? To show the world that mental illness is not something to be ashamed of. It's something to be examined and dealt with. You know?

[ Sighing ] Yeah. And it's being done every single day right here in this building. Well, thank god for general hospital.

[ Chuckles ] Yes. Thank god. And we're in the perfect place to do that, aren't we? Yeah. We can go down this waterfall, honey.What do you think? Woo! Yeah! It's good! It's refreshing.

Mac: Are you positive? Yes! The vending machines 100% used to be right here. Don't you remember all those follow-up appointments we had with the plastic surgeon? We would stop here on our way back from his office and we'd get a snack. Right. You always got the popcorn. Yes, and you got those peanut butter crackers that were probably in the machine since the 1950s.

[ Chuckles ] Probably.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you, mac. For what? Being there for me. You could've easily refused

[Voice breaking] To let me get that scar removed. It was important to you. Who knows? Maybe I would do things differently now. But...back then, I just wanted to be... normal, you know? Not known as the "heart transplant girl." Oh. Well, that's impossible. You are way too spectacular to ever qualify as "normal."

[ Chuckles ] Ow.

[ Chuckles ] And,'re wrong, you know. Oh, you're gonna have to be more specific. If anyone had ever told me that I would find my greatest happiness being a suburban dad...

[ Chuckles ] ...I would've told 'em they were crazy. Took me a while to embrace it. But I never regretted it -- not once. Really? I'm not judging those other guys, but they don't know what they're missing.

[ Chuckles ] Didn't there used to be vending machines here? I'm starving! Any luck? No. Not yet. Oh. Well, I'll help. Unless I'm not in the right place. Isn't this the old medical supply room? The one with the great big glass and metal cabinets that locked? Yeah, but how do you even remember that? They were long gone before you ever became a nurse. Oh, I remember from when I used to visit my gram.

[ Clicks tongue ] Aww, audrey. She was the best nurse this hospital ever saw. No wonder you wanted to follow in her footsteps. She wasn't the only reason I wanted to become a nurse. You were, too, you know. Me?! Well, yeah. Didn't you know that? No. That night that lucky found me in the park after I had been raped, he called you. And you were amazing. You were so gentle and kind and knew exactly what to say. And for that moment, I felt like I had some sort of control. You were so brave. And you were so comforting. I'm just sad you never knew what kind of impact you had on me until then. You are an excellent nurse, elizabeth. And if I played even the smallest part in that, you have thanked me plenty. Oh, bobbie. Aww. Mm.

[ Gasps ] What? Instinct. Hm! [ Laughs ] Oh! Thank you! Welcome. Hey, laura?

[ Blows ] Yeah? I hope you don't mind. One of the nurses said she saw you come in here. Oh, no. I don't mind at all. Come on in. What can I do for you? Yeah. I want to say "thank you" for not sidelining jordan. You know, for having confidence that she can do her job. I can tell you that being police commissioner means the world to her. I know that. I can see it. And your confidence is warranted. This diagnosis and dialysis... it hasn't slowed her down a bit. Yeah, I know. She's an amazingly strong woman. Plus, she's got a great support system. Yeah. Got a pretty good husband. Wh--

[ Laughs ] I just had to make you laugh a little, that's all.

[ Laughs ] Funny. Thank you. You're welcome. Couldn't resist, could you?

[ Laughs ] Guilty.

[ Laughs ] You? Oh, um, mine was in the pediatric center that we dedicated to michael.

[ Exhales deeply ] I'm pregnant. What did you just say? I'm pregnant. Oh, my good-- carly! Yeah. I mean, we're really surprised and really happy. Really happy.

[ Chuckles ] And you're probably freaking out. Really freaking out. Yeah. [ Laughs ] Oh, my goodness. Well, first of all, congratulations!

[ Laughing ] Thank you. Yeah. So, what does your doctor say? Uh, well, I have to be super careful about my stress, and I have to monitor my blood pressure. And, um...

[ Smacks lips ] ...If the risk gets above 50% then, uh... I may have to terminate the pregnancy. "May"? Sonny would say "definitely," you know? He'd say it's not worth the risk. What do you say?

[ Sighs ] Well... it'd be the second baby that sonny and i would have, so... and that brings up morgan for both of you. Yeah, well, sonny doesn't want to go there, you know? He doesn't -- he doesn't want to, you know, love this baby that he's already afraid he's going to lose, whether it be because of my health or because something happens like it did to morgan.

[ Sighs ] You can't live your life in fear like that. I agree. You know, I realize that. Just like I know you realized that a long time ago. You know, it'S... not knowing is a blessing. I-I'm grateful that I didn't know what the future held for morgan. I am. I know our time was cut short, but it was infinitely better than not having that time at all. That's exactly how I feel about bj. So you get it. Yeah. That said, you need to be responsible.

[ Scoffs ] I am! I am. I really am. Uh, so far, so good. Thank god. Yes. A baby!

[ Laughs ] I know!

[ Laughs ] Oh, gosh. Can you believe it? No, I -- no.

[ Both laugh ] Sonny: Hey. Oh, honey. Sorry to interrupt. Hey! What, are you having, uh, baby fever, too?

[ Laughs ] Carly just told me! Oh. Congratulations, sonny. Oh, thank you. One thing I have learned in this hospital -- while you can't count on miracles, they do happen -- a lot more often than you would think. Come here.

[ Chuckles ] Just...

[ Baby cooing ]

How are you holding up? Uh, hiya, bobbie. You know...

[ Sighs ] I don't know if I just want to... end all of this gail business. You know, it'S...over, you know? I just don't like any of it. We'll still keep her alive in our minds and in our hearts. Well, will you every so often meet me for a bottle of wine and we'll just remember gail? More than every so often. Today's a real day for that, isn't it? Remembering.

[ Inhales deeply ] Yes. That's all we've been doing. Hey, look at us. We're still here, after all this time. The red-headed student nurse and the handsome blond boy next door.

[ Chuckles ] Well, if I knew then what I know now... oh, stop. You wouldn't change a thing. I might change a few things. Okay. Just a few. But I wouldn't change what you and I had and that we're still friends. Aww. Mm. Well, hey. Still no envelope? This blueprint makes no sense to me. I'm completely lost.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, give it to me. Here. Let me see. You don't have to do that, lucy. Do what? Help a friend? A lot better than I deserve.

[ Sighs ] Well, doc, you know what? I will always stand by you. You know that. I just don't want you to misconstrue, lucy. I don't want to give you hope for something that's not going to happen. I love laura. But I do want you to know that you and me... it wasn't a mistake. Just because something doesn't last doesn't mean it wasn't beautiful. The world is full of beautiful things that don't last. Oftentimes, it makes it even more so. Right.

[ Exhales, sniffles ]

[ Voice breaking ] If you make my... very expensive mascara run, you're gonna be in big trouble. I'm sorry.

[ Chuckles ] Hey. I think I know where you're supposed to be.

[ Laughs, sniffles ] Come on.

[ Chuckles ] You realize gail did this on purpose. She wanted us to realize that there are more things that bind us than separate us. Well... monica, in all honesty, even when I couldn't stand you... I admired you. Of course you did. And even when I couldn't stand you, I admired you. Isn't it ironic? If you think about all the yelling and the crying and the hair-pulling... meanwhile, we wound up with the men we were supposed to be with the whole time. Yes. You belonged with rick, and I belonged with alan. Too bad we couldn't figure that out a little earlier. Would've saved us a lot of drama. Oh, I think we like the drama. Maybe a little bit. And now we can look back on it and smile. Lucy: [ Chuckles ] Here.

[ Sighs deeply ] This is where you are meant to be.

How are you? I'm okay. How are you? I miss you. I miss you, too. And I hate that I've ruined this for us.

[ Exhales sharply ] You didn'T. You didn't ruin it. I mean... not completely. We'll always have paris? Yeah. And I will always have that proposal. What a night that was. And you tricked me into putting on that great dress -- oh, and what a dress. Mm. It' of the best moments of my life.

[ Chuckles softly ] It was with you. I'll never forget it... no matter what happens. And I will never forget, no matter what happens, that you said "yes." Uh...I can come back. I-it's okay, mom. It's -- it's okay. Let me give you some time alone with your mother. Thank you. Kevin... I'm very glad you're safe. Thank you. Are you all right? Ohh.

[ Exhales ] Ohh. I will be. Hey. Hey. Hi.

[ Chuckles ] There you are. Oh, hey, lucy. Listen. So, I talked to serena, and she really wanted to facetime with us, 'cause she wants to hear the end of the reading of the will, but this connection is horrible. That's too bad. I really wanted to talk to her. So, lee and gail, huh? Some love story. You and i should've had that. Yeah, well, we, uh... never seem to be able to get our timing quite right.

[ Groans ] Yeah, well... it's been complicated. So, tell me how you're doing with gail's death. I mean... mm. ...I know that we talked on the phone a bit, but it's got to feel different to be here with everybody.

[ Sighs ] I thought maybe it would make it worse. Too many memories. Mm-hmm. But it turns out it's the exact opposite.

[ Chuckles ] I know. I was remembering when I was a candy striper.

[ Laughs ] Ohh. And I was so proud that my mother was a doctor in the hospital.

[ Laughs ] You know? It was really fortunate to have a role model like you. Not that I ever really followed your example, but... you were my wonderful, compassionate, tempestuous daughter. Yeah. And you were always gonna do things your way, come hell -- uh, heck...

[ Laughs ] ...Or high water. But I loved that about you. Really? And now here you are. You're the mayor of this city.

[ Voice breaking ] Oh, my sweetheart. I couldn't be any prouder.

[ Voice breaking ] Thank you, mom. You're welcome, baby girl.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Hi, hi. Hi. How's the envelope hunt going? Found mine.

[ Laughs ]

[ Button clicks ] What a trip, huh? Having y'all scurrying all over the hospital.

[ Laughs ] Yeah. You know, I was just talking to bobbie, telling her how she is my inspiration for becoming a nurse. But you know who taught me how to be one? Yeah, it's true.

[ Chuckles ] You know, you lead by example every single day. You're an advocate for patients. You don't tolerate whining. You have endless compassion for human feelings and -- and our flaws. And I learn from you every single day.

[ Scoffs ] And I'm still learning.

[ Chuckles ] You know what, uh, gives me the most pride? Is when I can teach someone -- someone eager to learn, eager to -- to take what you have to offer and not think that they know everything or -- or...or that you're criticizing them. Mm.

[ Chuckles ] And that's you, nurse webber. You're receptive, work hard, and always, always contributing. Sure, I'm senior, but we are a team in these halls. Yes, we are.

[ Chuckles ] And I couldn't ask for anything better in a colleague. Or in a friend.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Come on. If I could have all of your attention... good. I trust that all of you have found your envelopes. Excellent. So, at gail's request, would you please open them? All together at the same time? On the count of 3. Ready? 1...2...3! Woman: I can't get it open.

[ Laughter ] Ooh.

[ Woman chuckles ]

[ Laughter ]

So, this letter is from gail to all of you. "I hope you'll forgive me my last indulgence. By now, you realize there was nothing to find on this hunt of mine. Special thanks to alexis for planting the confetti-filled envelopes." You're so welcome. "So, you're probably all wondering why you're here -- why I orchestrated this wild goose chase. The answer is surprisingly simple. What I had hoped to do was bring you back to this hospital we shared, to thank you for the time we had together, and to cheer you on as you carry the work forward. I couldn't have asked for a better place or better friends. As always, there are amazing times to come. Cherish them, just as I cherish all of you. Gail."
