[ Knock on door ]
Side by side
we know the road -- who's there? Great. Crazy franco's here. According to
the invader, he could lose it at any time and go on a killing spree. Some way to spend valentine's day. Let's go. Are you kidding me? I don't feel so good. Okay, don't let them ruin our night. Please. No, no. It's got nothing to do with them. I'm just -- I don't feel good. I'll be right back. Okay. Oh. Okay. Hi! Hi! Hey. Great minds think alike I see, huh? What better spot to celebrate valentine's day than Port Charles grill? Right. Is -- is franco here? Yeah. Yeah. He just, uh, had to step out. There was an incident that [Sighs] What kind of an incident? T-this couple just, like, saw him and got up and -- and ran out. People are afraid of him. People are idiots. They don't know him like we do. Yeah. And certainly not like you do. Forget everyone else, okay? Yeah, well, it's really hard. Especially for franco. Portia: Thank you very much. No. Thank you.
[ Chuckles ] For what? Well, first, for looking so beautiful. Oh. And, second, for being my wingwoman. I know there's a million other things you could've been doing tonight. Oh. Oh, yes. I mean, as a single woman, a single mother, my valentine's days are usually extremely busy. You're very lucky that I can squeeze you in.
[ Both chuckle ] Or you could say "you're welcome." Oh! [ Laughs ] You're very welcome. Come in.
[ Monitor beeping ] How are you feeling? Last night was pretty rough. But I'm better today. Glad to hear it. So...I don't suppose you want to tell me who shot you? I know it's not a big fancy ceremony, but I couldn't let you do this without flowers. They're beautiful. Not half as beautiful as you. Really? It's annoying, but you're glowing.
[ Laughs ] Ahh. It is finally happening, kristina. Tj and I are finally officially joining our lives together... and I cannot wait. Thanks for the assist with mrs. Kittle. Yeah, no problem. Nice lady. Well, it was fast thinking on your part. You're gonna make a fantastic doctor. Thank you, dr. Westbourne. And I'm sorry you're -- you're here tonight. I tried to give as many of the staff the night off as possible. Actually, I'm not on the schedule tonight, so... what? And you still stuck around to help me out? Wow. Now I'm really gonna owe you. No. Don't worry about it. Uh, but if -- if you don't need me, can I go? Hey. Hey. I am so sorry. I, uh, must have got my wires crossed. I was supposed to meet Willow at the gatehouse, but -- sorry, sorry, sorry. I was waiting to slip wiley's valentine under his pillow. Took him forever to fall asleep. Yeah, yeah, he's been putting up a real fight lately. My favorite is when he insists he's not tired mid-yawn. Oh, yeah, that's the best.
[ Chuckles ] Anyway. I'm ready. Great. Should we go? Sure. Have fun.
Uh, don't worry. I, uh -- I figured that you and Willow were going to the metro court, so I made reservations for us at the Port Charles grill. Oh. "Oh." Well, is -- is -- is there a problem? Was that not a good idea or...? No, it's a great idea. It's, uh, so great that I actually had the same one. But I'll call the grill, and I'll change our reservation. No, no. Hey, no. O-on valentine's day? It was probably hard enough to get in there. It's -- it's fine. I-I have an in at the metro court. I'm sure olivia will find a table for us. Are you sure? Yeah. Absolutely. Yeah. All right, well, let me know if it doesn't work, and we can pivot it. It'll work. It'll work. Okay. Cool. Cool. Yeah. Happy valentine's day. To all of us.
[ Chuckles ]
[ All chuckle ] Shall we? Mm-hmm. Okay.
[ Sighs ] Can I tell you how much I hated that? Not because everyone wasn't perfectly nice. But because everyone was perfectly nice. Really makes me miss how it used to be. Yeah, I miss it, too. But the thing is, you know, we did what we did for wiley's sake. And, yeah, while I'll dispute certain tactics, I'll -- I'll never regret it. Neither will I. It was, uh, consequences, you know? And when you, uh, give certain things up... you can't always get them back. And the four of us, you know, our -- our friendship, I'm, uh -- I'm afraid that's one of them.
[ Knock on door ] Josslyn: Cam, it's just us! Trina: Open up!
[ Sighs ]
[ Chuckles ] What were you gonna do? Sing us to death? Ha ha ha. Wow. You're really taking this whole "protecting your family" thing seriously. Mm-hmm. I-I have to. I mean, do you know how many threats we've received since that article came out? I'm sorry. It is the worst when a notorious family member is on the front page and suddenly you have to worry about vigilantes. But on the upside, we are not intruders. Yeah, I can see that.
[ Chuckles ] And we'd love to hang out, you know, just the three of us. Maybe take our minds off of...everything. Happy valentine's day! Aww, guys. Thank you! Ava: So, how is franco doing? He started radiation. Well, that's good, isn't it? Yeah. Hopefully. He's fighting the tumor with everything he's got, and we're just praying it's enough. So are we. Thank you. And congratulations on your engagement.
[ Ava chuckles ] Yeah. Thank you. Actually, we have franco to thank for that. He's the one who convinced me to go all-in with nikolas. We're celebrating our second anniversary. Right. 'Cause it's not everybody who gets to get married in a jail cell. Hmm, when you were locked up for crimes ryan committed. But good times ahead. Enjoy your evening, guys. Yeah, you too. We'll see you soon. Okay.
[ Sighs ] Hey. You okay? Yeah, I'm gonna be fine. I'm just...a little nauseous. Okay. Franco. Oh, no.
[ Gasps ] You are off the clock, my friend. Thanks. Hey, are you and molly still going strong? We are. Yeah, tonight is -- it's a-a big night for us. Then get out of here. Will do. All right.
[ Chuckles ] What about you? Aren't you -- aren't you taking off? Nah. My heart belongs to G.H.
[ Elevator bell dings ] You know, y-you've changed a whole lot since your first go-around here.
[ Chuckles ] Bye. I don't know about that. I still have a few tricks up my sleeve. Sorry to keep you waiting... tiger. But don't you worry. There is no one I'd rather be with tonight. Happy valentine's day.
[ Both laugh ] I'm just here checking on brando. How convenient. He was just about to tell me what happened. Well, don't let me interrupt. Mr. Corbin? I was on my way to meet mr. Renault when, out of nowhere, I heard a shot and felt an incredible pain in my leg. It took me down. And the person who shot you? Never saw him. Uh, just heard him running away. So you didn't see or hear anything that could help us identify the person who shot you? No, ma'am. You're sure? That's it? That's all you're gonna give me? It's all I've got. What about you, mr. Morgan? Anything to add?
Well, thank you, guys, so much for coming. Mm-hmm. I just -- I can't help but feel a little bit bad. Why? Well, aren't you guys supposed to be at the dance? Without you?
[ Chuckles ] Are you insane? Man. Do you guys remember last year at this time? Look. I know this year has been rough, okay, for all of us... but I just want you guys to know that... I couldn't have gotten through it without you. Me neither. Same here. Uh, that banner's pretty awesome, but it looks like it's about to fall down. Yeah, well, that's what happens when jake insists on hanging it all by himself. Well, where's the tape? Come on.
[ Chuckles ] Let's fix it. Where is it? I don't know. Terry said you were tolerating the treatments so well that she upped the dose. Yeah, well, if feeling horrible is what she intended, then, yeah, it's all working perfectly. Babe, I would've never suggested that we go out if I had known. Let's just go home. No, no, no, no, no. I'm fine. Really, I'm fine. I-I don't want to -- I don't want to leave. I just -- I didn't think that we would be testing the "in sickness and in health" clause of our relationship so soon. This isn't a test. This is life. And we're gonna live a long and happy one. Brad: [ Sighs ] You know, this may be a new low for me -- making valentines for other people while receiving none of my own. They're not "other people." They're sick kids! Okay. I guess that makes it a little better. Okay. Stop the moping. I busted you out of pentonville so we could have some fun, not sit here and cry about how sad and lonely we are! Yeah, okay, how did you make that happen anyway? I told the warden you needed a follow-up procedure to ensure proper healing from the stab wound... which I reminded him was sustained in his jail... on his time. Damn, you're good. Duh. So I, uh -- I guess you just really wanted to see me, huh? Please. I needed help stuffing the bags. Mm-hmm. Sure you did. Of course I wanted to see you! It's only, like, the most depressing day of the year.
[ Both laugh ] Ohh. But if you'd rather be in jail, I will gladly alert the warden's office. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I'm exactly where I want to be. So thank you for making it happen. You're welcome. But I do have one question. Does lucas know I'm here? Excuse me. Whoa! Somebody's got big plans tonight. You going to see molly? And I'm already late, so... don't let us keep you. Have fun. Oh, I plan to. Ciao.
[ Cellphone rings ] Hello? Oh, to be young and in love. Hey, you're still sort of young. Yeah, thanks.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Elevator bell dings ] Uh, hey, what are your plans for valentine's day evening? Nothing. You? Nada. How sad are we, huh?
[ Scoffs ] But... we could change that. What do you say? Want to get a drink after work? So what are we doing here again? My client. Mm-hmm. He believes that his wife is cheating on him with the -- with the owner of this club. Well, who's the wife? Eleven o'clock. And what about, um -- what about the owner? Haven't seen him yet today. Well, let me know when you see him, okay? Will do. What? Look at you. You're having a good time. Well -- [ Laughs ] Look. I-I love my life, my job, my daughter. But every day I move from the chaos of G.H. To dealing with my patients to hopefully saving some lives, sometimes not. And then I go home to deal with Trina, who, as you know, is dealing with an extremely...difficult situation with her father. So it's just a difficult place for me to be in, you know? What do I say to her? What do I keep back? So while I get that you're over this whole, you know, P.I. Stuff, this is kind of like a little -- I don't know -- vacation for me. Well, all right. I got nothing to add. Shocking. I don't know why I bother to ask anymore. The ballistics report said that you were shot at fairly close range, but you claim that you didn't see your attacker. But you must have some idea who would be motivated to do this. So, mr. Corbin, who are you protecting? Renault's organization or Sonny's? Tj? Yeah. He is done with work and on his way over. Are you nervous? No. I'm -- I'm excited. And happy. Most of all, I am at peace. That is the perfect way to feel before you make a commitment. Do you think mom and sam are gonna be upset when they find out we did this without them? I think when you explain why you wanted to do it, they'll understand. Yeah, I mean, as much as we love our family and we want to have a big celebration at some point, doing it this way just feels right for tj and me. Yeah. Intimate and simple. I get it. No big fanfare. Just the two of us starting our lives together. Not if I have anything to say about it.
Ooh. There he is. Who? The owner? Where? Two o'clock. Why don't you just say "at the bar"? I don't understand.
[ Chuckles ] I thought it sounded more like a P.I. Oh. Well, it kind of does, actually. Oh, wow. He really can't keep his eyes off of her. Has your client just come out and asked his wife if she's cheating? Oh, yeah. She denies it. But he's, uh -- he's positive that she's lying to him. That's usually the way it goes. Maybe they're just friends and they just enjoy working together. Or maybe not. Yeah. Wow. Hey, portia. Hmm? Say "cheese." Oh.
[ Camera shutter clicks ] You're renault's driver. Or whatever your job title is.
[ Scoffs ] So? So did you do something to make your boss angry?
[ Gasps ] Or is it mr. Morgan who has an issue with you? Neither. I told you. I don't know who shot me. Well, whoever it is didn't want you dead. Or else you would be. Maybe it was a warning of some sort. Maybe it was random and I just got in the way. Hmm. Or maybe it was a gift. Do you see what time it is? I'm about to close. No, you -- you can'T. I most certainly can, and I will not feel bad about it. Listen. My fiancé just texted. Look. He'll be here any minute. Please. The guy's in med school. Can't you make an exception?
[ Sighs ] I'll give you 20 minutes. And if prince charming is not here by then, buh-bye.
[ Sighs ] Come on, tj. Where are you? No, no, no. It's -- it's 400 milligrams. That's correct. Thank you. No, it's -- it's fine. Have a good night. Dr. Ashford. Hi. I-I just wanted to thank you and dr. Westbourne for being so kind and caring with my wife earlier. Of course. I'm -- I'm glad mrs. Kittle is feeling better. You know, we've been married 48 years today. Wait. Today is your anniversary? Valentine's day. Wow! Well, congratulations! 48 years. I hope you find that kind of love with someone special. I already have. You know, it's really cool for you ask me out, but I'm just not ready to go there, you know? Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Who said anything about asking you out? Uh...you did. And it's not like we haven't tried that before, so... I just thought you might want to go have a drink, you know, as friends. Oh. We could ignore valentine's day together and not talk about our exes. That does sound enticing. Right? I-I haven't seen much of lucas, to be honest. Is he working tonight? I'm not sure. You made the schedule, britt. Can -- can you just let it go, please? Whoa. You cold? It's like a million degrees in here. Well, I know I don't make you nervous. Please? So why's your hand shaking? We've come a long way, haven't we? And not exactly in a straight line. But I do like where we've landed. Yeah, me too. Is it possible, do you think? Is what possible? That we've actually found happiness? Hey, not only is it possible. It's happening. Welcome to the rest of your life, Ava. Oh, well, thank you very much. And it's a good one, isn't it? The best. Sorry to interrupt. For mrs. Cassadine. You look beautiful. Thank you. I wanted to tell you at the quartermaines', but it seemed a little... awkward? Yeah. Well, now it's just us.
[ Sighs ] And you look really nice, too. Should I get us a bottle of wine? Definitely. All right. You know, do they have a masthead 2010? Unless you want white instead. Uh, no, no. Red's good. And, uh, they do. Yes! Although I've never heard of it. Willow. Have you been hanging out with our wine guy? Not our wine guy. But a wine guy. Michael had this tutor come to the house to teach us about... everything. My head was spinning with all the different regions and vintages. Wow. Wow. That sounds really cool. It was. All right. Uh, masthead 2010 it is. You're going to love it. I already do. Thank you. All right. Done. Olivia squeezed us in at the metro court. Great. Yeah. I was surprised you asked me out. You know, tonight of all nights. Yeah. Well, you know, we got to start somewhere, right? And why not on one of the most fraught days of the year?
[ Laughs ] Well, now that we got that out in the open... yeah, I just -- I want us to, you know, get to know each other again, you know? No expectations. Just see where the night takes us. That sound good? Sounds good. And if I hadn't said this already, I mean, you look absolutely beautiful.
[ Laughs ] You haven'T. And thank you. Shall we? Yeah. Okay.
[ Cellphone rings ] It's my mom. Take it. Hey, mom. Everything okay? Wait. What?!
Portia. I got some good shots. Really? They put on quite a show. They weren't even trying to be discreet. Ohh. Well, now you have to tell your client. Yeah, well, that's just part of the job. Not a fun part. No. But it looks like
they were having fun.
[ Laughs ] Not the butt grab. No! Yeah. Double butt grab. Oh, he's really not messing around, huh? No, he's not. And neither am I. Brando's shooting was a gift. What do you mean? The longer he's out of commission, the less time he's able to do cyrus' bidding. Mr. Renault needs me. And I want to get back to work. I need to work! I don't think you're going anywhere anytime soon. And that slows cyrus down, and that's not a bad thing. Speak for yourself. There's obviously more to this than either of you are admitting. And I am telling you right now...I will figure it out.
[ Monitor beeping ] Dude. Why the hell did you shoot me?! He'll be here. We don't have a lot of time. Don't worry about the clerk. I'll take care of her. How?! What part of "don't worry" isn't computing? Sorry. I know. I'm j-- I'm a little overwhelmed. Sit down. Let's go back to that peaceful place. Remember that? Vaguely. So, it surprised me a little. What did? That you picked valentine's day to become partners. Cliché? I was going to say "traditional," which you and tj are anything but. Yeah, um... I guess I wanted to do it to give meaning to the day, you know? To make it about more than just greeting cards and chocolates. Make it about what it's supposed to be about. Love?
True love. Aww. My sister. My little sister. Always the romantic!
[ Laughs ] All right, ladies. Your 20 minutes are up. It's closing time. Let's clear out.
[ Sighs ] This -- this isn't happening! Come on! Not one rideshare? It's okay. We'll just -- we'll try another app. Tj. Is everything all right? What could it be? Now, I already have two beautiful rings, so I'm sure it's not a ring. Mm. Could be, um, a necklace perhaps. Or earrings. What is it?
[ Chuckles ] Open it and find out. You can't eat, can you? No, but that's okay. Can watch you eat. I like watching you eat. I'd watch you do just about anything. This is silly. Let's just go home. No. I'm not taking "no" for an answer. No. Okay. Good. Thank god. My mom usually keeps the tape in there. Aha. Jake must have taken it upstairs with him. Hm. Want me to grab it? No, no. It's okay. I think I have some in my bag. I'll get it. I, uh, taped up a calendar to count off the days until graduation. Mm-hmm. Till the days we'll be officially college-bound. Can you believe it? Joss, wait! What's wrong? Nothing. Uh... just -- can you hand me my backpack? Oh, I found the tape. That is awesome. Can I please...? Cam, is this for real? What is it? It's an acceptance letter. To stanford university.
You got in?! I didn't even know you were looking there. I applied early action. Yeah, and you got accepted. Cam, that's amazing! Congratulations! I'm so proud of you! But wait. This was dated over a month ago. Why didn't you tell us? Because I don't know if I'm gonna go. You don't know if you're gonna go? Well, I-it's this amazing school... mm-hmm. ...With an incredible soccer team. Mm-hmm. Yeah, and you're an incredible soccer player. Here, at Port Charles high school. What if I go there and I suck?
[ Scoffs ] What if we all suck? What if we all go to college and totally tank? Wouldn't it be worse to stay home and not even try just because we're scared? It's not just about being scared. Is it your family? I mean, you don't want to leave them? That's -- that's a big part, but... and it's also you guys. I just -- it doesn't feel done yet. What doesn't? This. High school. I-I just don't know if I can be apart from you guys. It does feel like everything's changing. Hey. I get that. Okay? But here's the thing, you guys. Whether you go to california or you stay here, life's gonna change anyway, you know? That's just the way it is. I'm in this bed because of you. Don't you think you at least owe me an explanation? Cyrus wanted you to find his mother, right? He was threatening you and the rest of the family. You were stuck. So I took you out of commission.
[ Sighs ] O-okay. Yeah. Y-you did me a favor.
[ Monitor beeping ] But you could've at least given me a heads-up! And risk having you flinch? No. This was the easiest way to do it. Do you know how bad it hurts to take a bullet?!
[ Knock on door ] Come in! Hey. My, uh, mom called, told me what happened. Are you okay? Nothing a few days' rest won't fix. You sure? Yeah. I'm fine. What are you guys doing here? It's valentine's day. You saved my life. The least I could do is check in on you. My mom was pretty light on the details. Do you know who did this? I'll let you fill them in.
[ Door closes ] Brando, what happened? Do you know who shot you? When I drove by the gatehouse to pick you up, I noticed there was some, uh, work being done. Yeah. Just a little. Was it in bad shape? No. I mentioned to michael -- in passing, mind you -- that it would be nice if the kitchen had an island, more counter space. Somewhere to feed wiley. Right. But nothing urgent, by any means. Next thing I know, michael is going full "gut-reno" on the place. And not just the kitchen. The whole gatehouse is being redecorated. Get out. And it's hilarious how michael is spying on me. I mean, not in a creepy way, but if I point out a chair I like in a magazine or a store, lo and behold, it shows up at the house a few days later.
[ Chuckles ] I'm sorry. I don't mean to be talking so much about michael. No. No. You, uh -- you live on his property. You're raising a kid together. Michael's a part of your life. And how's your life? How are you? Right here in this moment... I'm pretty damn great. Ava. What's wrong? Brad. Come on. I'm fine. You sure? Yeah. You know, being chief of staff comes with a lot of pressure. It's cyrus renault, isn't it? Come on. You went to the trouble of breaking me out of prison. Talk to me. The less you know, the better. And I don't want any of renault's crew going after you again. Then you'd really need to be in the hospital. I should probably, uh, get these delivered. Can I help? Yeah. That's a great idea. Just walk around G.H. All out in the open when you're really not supposed to be here. So that's a "no." That's a "hell no." Keep a low profile, would you? I'll be back.
[ Door opens ]
[ Sighs ] Jason: You need some help?
[ Chuckles ]
So y-you really never saw who shot you? Um, at least they didn't hit anything major. A-and what else would I be doing on valentine's day? It would have to be better than this. Yeah. How's, uh, recovery going? Good. You know, one day at a time, as they say. There's nothing wrong with taking it slow and steady. Uh, I'm sure you guys have a reservation somewhere. Go. Have a good time. Uh... really! I-I-I need the rest anyways. Okay. But I'll be back. I'll be here. Feel better, brando. Thanks.
[ Door opens ]
[ Cellphone chimes ] Sorry. Change of plans. It's so great that Finn and your dad are getting along. Yeah, I never thought that it could happen. And now that it has? It feels hopeful, you know? That we could actually finally become a family. Goes to show, doesn't it? That damage can be repaired. Bridges can be rebuilt. Relationships can be regrown. It's happening with my dad and my brother. And I'm really hoping that it can happen with us. Lucas: Check this one out. Felix: Ohh! That's wiley on christmas. O.M.G. Look at that tiny little blazer. I know, right? Kid's got style, lucas. Yes. Yes, he's got style? No. Yes, let's -- let's grab that drink. Excellent. Excellent. Hey. Look. There's this new place that opened over on third. It is by far the best place I think in town right now. I mean, I got you something, but it certainly wasn't that. How disgusting. What is that, a roach? I hate roaches. Does anyone actually like them? Not helping. I don't understand. Who would do this? We'll find out. Curtis: I'm so used to doing these missions solo. It feels really good to have a partner again. Oh, well, if you ever need an assist, just hit me up. I might take you up on that. Okay. Well, my job here is done. Ready to get out of here? Um... look at you!
[ Both laugh ] You want to stay. I mean, I don't know. Maybe -- maybe just one more song. I'm here for it. One more song. Look. I know you're still mad at me. And I made a mess of things between you and molly. And I'm so sorry. You don't have to be ready to forgive me, but if there's anything I can do to help...? My car won't start. Hm. I'm like half an hour late to meet with molly. I'm guessing it's impossible to get a car tonight. Yeah. Would you be able to give me a ride? Of course. I'll, uh, even use the siren. Come on. Please don't kick us out! Look, I bet that my fiancé is out there parking right now! I'm gonna go check, okay?!
[ Door opens, closes ] Okay, look. My sister really needs this night to happen. We all have needs, ma'am. Maybe you have valentine's day plans or maybe you're just really tired and want to go home. And I-I get that. But I want my sister to be happy. So... will this help? Come on. We'll see each other all the time. And even when we can't, we'll stay in touch. Mm-hmm. You really think I should go? If you want to? Heck yeah. And, you know, I heard california has awesome surfing, so when I come visit, maybe I can teach you a thing or two. Oh, yeah? Yeah. Hm. All right. I'll take you up on that offer.
[ Laughter ] Hi, kids. Hey. You guys are home early. Yeah. Franco's not feeling that great. So, uh, check it out. I'm going for jeff bezos. You know, without the billions. What do you think? No, no. I-I-I got this. But since you're so intent on giving me a hand, do you want to help me deliver these before the kids are asleep? Or are you too...badass to spread a little love?
