Co-- yeah. Oh, of course. T-t-this is your night, nina. I'm just here to help out wherever I can. Are you kidding?

Oh, uh, maxie is gonna be live-tweeting. My best event. Yeah. Yeah, and our job is just to introduce all the folks to the audience, make them feel good about they're wearing. Okay, you know my brand.

[ Camera shutters clicking ] And here is our first official duo of the evening, dr. Kevin collins and his -- ava jerome. Sydney: Uh, I hear they're the most scandalous new couple in port charles. Oh, hello! Hello. You are looking dapper tonight, dr. Collins. Yes, isn't he, though? Thank you.
[ Laughter ] I like your dress. Kudos for being bold. Well, thank you, nina. So, uh, what are you most looking forward to this evening? Well, what ava and i most look forward to and appreciate most about the nurses' ball is the opportunity to raise money for a truly worthy cause. Yes, that's just it. We're so honored to help in any way that we can. Well, have fun, you two. Thank you. Thank you.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Hello, maxie. Hi. Hi.
[ Chuckles ] Um, I-is something wrong? No. No, no, no. Uh, it's just a surprise to see you two together tonight. Well, I guess it'll take some getting used to.
[ Chuckles ] Well, hello, scotty. How's it going? Oh. Well, it's too soon to tell, but now that I see you...
[ Chuckles ] Have a good night. Have a good night? And here we have lawyer extraordinaire scott baldwin. Welcome to the nurses' ball. Oh. Scott. Scott. Hello, and goodbye. Hey, scott, why don't you tell the crimson readers who you're wearing tonight? Expensive. Okay. Who's got your trousers in a twist? It's those two. They're all wrong. Agreed. Well, I'm gonna go make it right. No. Curtis, the body's gone. Oh, my god. Oh, that poor woman. He killed her after she helped him. Yeah. He killed her because he knew that she was gonna help us. Speaking of help, I don't think any is coming anytime soon, so it's on us to get out of here. Okay. Please tell me you have a knife in your pocket. I think the corners of these chairs are pretty sharp, okay? Yeah. If we work together, we should be able to free ourselves. Okay. Well, like... there. There, I can almost reach.
[ Air hissing ] Wait a minute. I smell gas. Josslyn is definitely
not going. What about us? She wants us to go. You don't want to go? Well, I'm josslyn's mom, and I know she needs me, so I don't know what to do. Well, I think I-I-it would be good for her if you went. Oh, god. I knew you were gonna say that. Then why'd you ask? Because I don't know. I -- for the record, next time I ask you, just tell me what I want to hear, please. Can I tell you a secret? What? I hate this night. Why? Every year, it reminds me of stone. He's gone. The people that have died of aids and hiv. But then I get -- I have, like, s-stone in my head saying, "get off your ass and go." So I go and then I, you know, see people propping each other up and having a great time, loving each other. And I see what good it does, and I say to myself... "I'm glad I put that tux on and -- and went." Let's just wait for kristina to get here, okay?
[ Elevator bell dings ] Wow. Hi. Hi. You look handsome. Thank you. You are just so beautiful. Mm. Get a room!
[ Laughs ] Or at least a supply closet.
[ Laughter ] Oh, my goodness. That is a beautiful dress. Thank you. Look at you. It really is. You look great. Thank you. No problem. Are we ready to get our nurses' ball on? We should leave soon or we'll miss the red carpet. I am not missing the red carpet. That's why I already called an uber. Yeah, you should cancel that. Wait, what? No, oh, not like that. No, it's -- I -- I, um... I have this enormous stretch limousine downstairs. Whoa. A-are you for real? Y-yeah. Well, come on. You can't have a nurses' ball without the nurses, right? So I just thought maybe we should all arrive in style. Aww. Well, since you put it like that...
[ Laughs ] Thank you. You're very welcome. Yeah, that's ridiculously nice of you, franco. Come on, any time. Come on. We should go before the driver gets bored and drives away.
[ Elevator bell dings ] Woman: That's wonderful. Well, here we have, uh, ms. Willow tait, and she is escorted by detective harrison chase. Hello. Ah, detective, rumor has it that you're performing again. Any hints? Uh, you'll just have to wait and see. Come on. Well, you must know. Oh, no, he's like a vault, this guy. And believe me -- I've tried to get it out of him. How? Okay, okay.
[ Chuckles ] Uh, well, we will just have to be patient. Enjoy your night. -Thank you. Thank you. Well, she's adorable. Don't you think? Uh. You know who's adorable? Who? Him. He's adorable.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Camera shutters clicking ]
Sydney: Oh, and who do we have here? This is my daughter, sasha gilmore, and she is with michael corinthos, C.E.O. Of elq enterprises. Well, welcome to the nurses' ball. Thank you. I'm really happy to see you here, together. Yes. Uh, yeah, um, yes, uh, thank you. I'm very happy to be here. This, uh, night and this cause is very dear to my heart. Yes, which you showed with your company's very generous donation. Thank you very much. Of course.
[ Chuckles ] You look great. Beautiful. Uh, pantormo is a fabulous designer. Oh, how'd you know that's who I'm wearing? Oh, sydney knows all.
[ Laughs ] Knows all. So, it's your first nurses' ball. How do you feel? At first, I was a little nervous, but now I'm just ready to have fun.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Thank you, by the way. For what? Well, I was pretty close to ripping nina's face off when you jumped in and smoothed the waters. You were close, but you wouldn't have. How do you know that? Because you're a woman who knows how to prioritize, and we have a much bigger mission tonight. Ryan is on his way. I just know it. He won't be able to resist. I agree you're the best way to draw him out. But if a lifetime of misery is any indication, nothing with ryan ever goes according to plan. It's not just me, right? I mean, you can smell the gas, too? Yeah. I feel it, too.
[ Both coughing ] Oh, my god. I know what he's doing. I know what he's doing! Oh, my god! Y-you want to fill me in? Ryan was supposed to have died in an explosion at a funhouse. He's doing this to torment kevin. He wants me to die the same way that he was supposed to. Funhouse, huh? Well, I'm not having much fun. Look, there is no way I'm gonna let this freak win. Would you look at those two over there? What the heck is doc thinking? Well, no flies on you, lucy. Kevin is taking advantage of ava's grief. No, absolutely not. No, no, no. That is not what's happening. Look at kevin. He's drowning with guilt. And ava is milking it for all it's worth. This is like a runaway train. We got to put the brakes on. Absolutely. Tonight. Michael, hey. Michael: Hey. You look great. Thanks. So do you. Hey, sasha. Hi. So, I hear you're on live-tweeting duty? Yes, I am. Smile and wave to crimson's millions of followers. Well, now we have a couple newly-ish-weds -- uh, franco baldwin, elizabeth webber baldwin. Elizabeth is one of general hospital's most esteemed nurses. Um... hello. Hey. Good evening to you both. Hi. Good evening. Good evening. Okay, that is quite the dress. Right? Thank you. Uh-huh. Great. So, uh, are you looking forward to the performances? Absolutely.Uh...for sure, but the real story of the night is the nurses, and I just feel very fortunate to have this one on my arm.
[ Gasps ] And just so you know, there's a whole gaggle of rowdy nurses coming your way really soon. Oh, they were perfectly behaved. I'm not sure that the limousine driver would agree. Oh. [ Laughs ] All right. Have a great evening. Thank you. You guys -- you too. Oh, wow. That's bright.
[ Indistinct conversations ] Okay, I guess this is the rowdy group of nurses that franco was talking about. W-who was he calling rowdy?
[ Laughing ] I think franco was just... just joking. Oh, ha ha. I think he was joking. Yeah. Do I run a tight ship? Does she ever. A tighter ship has never been run. Okay. On that note, I would like to introduce to you head nurse epiphany johnson. Her crew -- amy driscoll, felix dubois, deanna sirtis. Uh, tell us, epiphany, will magic milo be joining us this evening? Oh, well, um, milo had a work conflict, so he's keeping his magic in his pants this year.
[ Laughs ] Noted.
[ Laughter ] Well, uh, then welcome, nurses, to the 2019 general hospital nurses' ball. Yay! Thank you. We are honored to be here. Have fun. Oh, we will. Come on, girl. Hey. Oh, no, no. Oh, ooh.
[ Camera shutters clicking ]
Nina: Ooh, I'd like to introduce renowned...coffee importer, uh, sonny corinthos and his beautiful wife, carly corinthos. It is a pleasure to see you this evening. I-I know the nurses' ball has a special significance to your family. Yes, it's a privilege to be here. Yeah, the -- the nurses' ball is always a good time. Always. And I just want to say that, you know, it's -- it's really a blessing to be here, to realize how -- how precious life really is. Yeah.
[ Chuckles ] Aww.
[ Laughs ] That was so humiliating. What was? Nina basically gushing all over you. I'm sorry if she made you feel uncomfortable. No, she didn'T. You actually mean that, don't you? Yeah, I thought -- I thought she was sweet.
[ Chuckles ] Okay, I have the greatest idea. Which is? The next time I visit your class, because, of course, you're gonna ask me back, I'm definitely gonna bring thor, but I think it'd be really cool to deputize all the kids this time. They'll love it. Yeah. Actually... no? Is that a stupid idea? No, it's a great idea. It's just you'll have to do it with someone else's class because I've been fired. What? Yeah, I get to finish out the year and then I'm done at pc elementary. Willow, when did this happen? Yesterday. Principal schultz broke the news. Oh, my gosh. I am -- I am so sorry. Yeah, me too. Is this because of the whole charlotte cassadine thing? Look, I don't agree with a lot of the choices nina and valentin made for their daughter, but the truth is, I could've handled it better, too. Okay, let's focus on the upside, then. Sure. There are a lot of private schools in town, schools that would jump at the chance to hire you. Sometimes things that seem like the worst actually turn out to be the best. Things certainly worked out for the best the night I met you. No one can hold a candle to you. It's gonna be a good night. I think it's already a pretty good night. Hi. Hi.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Nina: For those of you who don't know, this is crimson's supervising fashion editor, um, maxie jones. She is doing double work tonight, as she's live-tweeting. How's it going, maxie? Excellent. Good. Good to know. And with her is peter august. He is the publisher of the invader, along with his star reporter, lulu falconeri. Ah, you all ready to have a good time tonight? Um, as long as this year is less eventful than last year, yes, I am more than ready.
[ All chuckle ] All right, we'll see you guys later. Okay. Thank you.
[ Coughing ]
[ Whispering ] I -- I have something. I'll be right back. I have something. I thought she'd never leave. Uh, let me tell you about my dress.
[ Coughing ] Are you okay? I could kill for some water right now. On it. I'll go get you some.
[ Clears throat ] Jax: Would you, uh, settle for champagne?
Are you sure? Absolutely. Bless you. I'm sorry. I usually don't steal people's booze, but, um, my throat closed up during an interview.
[ Sighs ] Are you, uh -- are you with the press? Uh, no, I'm not with the press. I'm a publisher, and I'm doing -- I'm doing this for charity. Oh, that's very generous of you. Yeah. It's so weird that that happened. I don't know if my throat closed up because of the lights or because I hate those two.
[ Whispers ] Uh, did I say that out loud? Well, lucky for you, I don't know who you're referring to. How much of this have I had?
[ Chuckles ] About half a glass. Yeah, it goes right to my head. Thank you. You're welcome. Very much. See you on the red carpet. Yes, you will. Hey. Hi. Hey. Oh, you look so handsome. Oh, thanks.
[ Chuckles ] Uh, mom, dad, uh, I'd like to introduce you to my friend. This is sasha gilmore. Yeah, we -- nice to see you again. Hi. Uh, we've already met -- at the metro court. Yes. After, um... your workout. Right. It's nice to see you again. You too. So, uh, no josslyn tonight? No. She insisted we come. Of course, I had second thoughts and third, fourth, and fifth. Well, hey, look, I think it's a good thing that you're here. You know, it gives her some space and hopefully some confidence. Yeah. What'd I tell you? I know.
[ Chuckles ] I mean... mom, mom, she's gonna be okay. Yeah, I know. Excuse me. I'm gonna use the restroom. You know -- you know she's gonna be -- she's gonna go text her daughter, right? Oh, yeah, 100%. So, you wait until kevin leaves ava, and then you know what to do. Yeah. You just told me what to do, so -- so go. It's gonna work. It better. Hey, don't worry. Ryan won't come here with all these people. He'll wait until I'm alone.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Okay, well, our next red carpet visitor is, um... ah, make that visitors. Oh, yes, visitors.
[ Chuckles ] Uh, mac and felicia scorpio. Hey. -Hi. Come on in, please. Hi. Welcome. Thank you. We're thrilled to be here. Well, uh, this certainly isn't your first nurses' ball. No, it isn'T. Uh, so, tell us what's been your favorite act over the years? Oh, that's easy. It is? Mr. Marbles, obviously. That's discouraging. You loved it. You all know it. Jasper jacks, welcome back to the G.H. Nurses' ball. Thank you, george. Appreciate it. You know, this is, uh, an important night, and I'm happy to be back. Will you be performing tonight? Well, I understood that sonny corinthos sang last year, so, uh, you know, maybe I'll do a dance number. Anything's possible. Anything's possible here. Absolutely. Now, is this a quick visit to port charles, or can we expect to be seeing more of you? Well, george, my friend, we'll just have to see what happens. I like to keep my options open. All right, have a good evening. Uh, and now we'd like to introduce, uh, our next guest. Um, we, uh...our -- our -- our g-- jasper jacks, international financier. Yes, yes. Please, just call me jax. Yeah, jax. Uh, so, uh, what brings you back to port charles? You've been traveling around the globe, correct? Australia, right. So -- australia, that's -- I love australia. You do? Have you been? Uh, no. Uh, uh, uh, I like -- the accents are great. Thank you. Well, I just -- I just finished a project there, and I'm here looking for opportunities. Oh. Uh, did you time it on purpose to coincide with the nurses' ball? Um, partly. Um, I've had to miss the last few years, so it is, uh, great to be back for this very important cause. Yay. So, you -- you should, uh, say hello to maxie on your way into the... have a good evening. I will say hi to maxie. Thank you.
[ Laughing ] You're welcome. Thank you. Bye. Jax, hey. Hey, maxie. I didn't know you were back in town. Surprise. How long are you home for? Indefinitely. Good to see you. Good to see you.

Nina: Private investigator sam mccall, everyone. I love that dress. Thank you. Beautiful. I don't think I know your companion. Oh, um, so sorry. This is shiloh. Shiloh, uh...? Shiloh. He runs the dawn of day. Oh. F-- that's fantastic. That's good. That's not the word I'd use. Okay. Oh, well, uh, where's jason? Uh, I guess it's not surprising. Maybe he doesn't go to events like this. I don't know. Well, whether that's true or not is irrelevant. You see, sam's not defined by anyone else's decisions. Awesome. Okay. Well, um... yeah. I-I see maxie. Have fun. Okay. Ha-- uh, see maxie and have a good time. Thank you. Maxie, hi. Hi. How are you? Good. How are you? Good. Hey. Who is -- who is this? Oh, this is shiloh. Oh. Mm-hmm.

[ Camera shutters clicking ] Dr. Collins. Yes? Uh, a woman passed out on the red carpet. Oh, no. They took her upstairs, but apparently now she's hysterical. Would you mind taking a look? Uh, no, of course not. Where is she? Room 809. All right, I'll -- I'll be right there. Uh, excuse me. Yeah, of course. I-if the show starts, I'll save you a seat. Hello, peter. Valentin. How are you? I'm well. Thank you very much. Lulu, you are looking exceptionally nice this evening. Thank you. Charlotte helped me pick out the dress. A girl and her fashion sense. She actually helped nina with her ensemble as well. Maybe she'll follow in her stepmother's footsteps. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Oh, wow. Jasper jacks just walked in. Hey. You made it. I did. Oh, hi. Sonny. So, uh, I'm gonna get a drink. You want anything? Uh, nope. No, thanks.
[ Chuckles ] All right.
[ Sighs ] So, I-I so did not want to come tonight. Yeah. Neither did I. I kept offering to bail, but, you know... let me guess. Josslyn ordered you to come to the ball. Pretty much.
[ Laughs ] Yeah, I-I think she doesn't want to be the reason we stay home. Well, then I'm glad we're here. That shows we're listening and that we have faith in her, so... I'm glad we're here, too. Hey. Hi. I thought your mom was coming. Yeah. Um, she's working on a special assignment. Oh, uh, mayor business? Something like that.
[ Coughs ] We got to get out of here. This is taking too long. We need something with a larger surface area. Wait, I think I can reach your knot. Okay. Wait, press towards me. Lean towards me. Yep. I think I can do it. Okay, come on. I'm getting it. I'm getting it. Oh, oh!
[ Coughs ] I got it! I got it! You are good.
[ Coughs ] Ava. Come with me. There's something you need to see. What do you mean, come with you? Come with you where? I want you to see something. Hello? This is dr. Kevin collins. I received word that someone here needs my assistance? Oh, doc. Lucy? I am so glad you came. Lucy. I am so happy you are here. Uh, okay, so, I assume that you did not faint on the red carpet. Uh, no. But this is truly an emergency, doc. You have to listen to me. Ava does not know you like I do. Sh-she doesn't see that you're just feeling so guilty about something you did not do. Lucy, that's not what's happening. Well, doc, you have such a big and generous heart. You absolutely do not have to take care of ava jerome. You don'T. Please, doc, let me save you from yourself. Well, I just wanted to check in with you before the ballroom doors open, in case you changed your mind. Are you sure? Okay. All right, well, I'll have my phone on me in case you want to call me. Love you, joss. Jax. Lulu, hi. Hi. Nice to see you. Mm. This is my boss -- peter august, the publisher at
the invader. Nice to meet you. Peter: Likewise. And this is... valentin cassadine. Pleasure. Likewise. Oh, this is nice champagne. I mean, it's no "vintage of love"...
[ Laughs ] ...But it'll get me through the evening. Willow? You okay? Ooh, now we have the very handsome dr. Hamilton finn with the lovely anna devane, former super spy. Anna: Hi. Hello. Hey, welcome, welcome. How are you? Good. Thank you. It's lovely to be here. Yes. Ooh, gosh, it's super close. Uh, l-let me just say, you two are a lovely looking couple. Aww, thank you. Thank you. It's all down to him. No. I'm not being superficial, 'cause we are on the red carpet, right? Yes. Uh, who are you wearing? Oh, um... I'm wearing, uh... well, come on. Don't keep us in suspense.
[ Camera shutters clicking ] Oh, another super spy in our midst, agent robert scorpio. Uh, you are looking dashing tonight. Thank you very much. As are we all. Anna, finn. Robert. Robert. Yeah, you remembered. What an intriguing trio. Intriguing, for sure. Uh, wow. Well, okay. Uh, the ball is going to start. Yes. Oh. So you better get in there. You don't want to miss it. We don't want to miss it. Right. No, no, no. Go, go. Okay, bye. Bye-bye. Thank you. Bye. Bye. Intriguing. Hey. Look at me. You are safe. Okay? Hey. Are you sure you want to do this? I just want to say hello. Come on. Mr. And mrs. Corinthos, it is such a pleasure seeing you here this evening. How's kristina doing? She's doing a lot better now. That's fantastic. Well, I look forward to her return to dawn of day. I wouldn't count on that. Well, I would. I mean, it would be in her best interest. As well as her family'S.
[ Chuckles ] You're a philosopher, right? Some choose to call me that, yes. They choose to call you other things, too. You know what my philosophy is? Enlighten me. Family first and always. At any cost.
[ Both coughing ] Okay, come on. Okay, we got to get out of here. It's gonna blow. All right, come on, come on, come on. Scotty, I do not have time for this nonsense. Trust me. This is for your own good. What is? Aha! Caught ya! Thank you, trish. Thank you. Great job, gals. Thank you. Okay. Oh. That's it, everybody.
[ Laughs ] You were flawless. Hey, you too. We make a great team, in print and on the red carpet. Aww. Okay, let's not overdo it. Okay. All right. Um, well, thank you. Thank you for everything. Mm-hmm. Once or twice a year? Is more than enough. Okay. Oh, I think someone's waiting for you. Let's get out of here. Mm-hmm. Mwah, mwah. Talk soon. But not too soon.
[ Laughs ]
[ Sighs ] I want my ring back. You, finn, and robert made quite the entrance. Oh. So which one's your date? Felix: Ladies and gentlemen, please find your seats.
