Felicia finally chooses, Richard Simmons makes a surprise appearance, and Patrick talks about HIV/AIDS.
At the ball Frisco asks Felicia to marry him and presents a ring. He gives her the mic hoping she's about to say yes as Mac and Maxie watch. As guests look on she tells him she loves him but she meant to tell him weeks ago that the man of her heart is Mac. Outside the ballroom Mac tells Felicia he's ecstatic and professes his love hoping Felicia is in for the long haul. She asks if forever is long enough and wants him to propose. He does and she accepts with a kiss. Maxie runs after Frisco. He says there's nothing left for him in Port Charles. Maxie reminds him she's there. She's wants to be a reason he stays and is grateful for his help keeping her secret from the crazy doctor. He tells her he'll be in touch and leaves. Ellie is around the corner listening. She's interrupted at the elevators and turns to find Maxie crying. Ellie asks Maxie if it is more than hormones.
Britt watches a live feed of the Nurses' Ball in another room. She's upset to see Sabrina with Patrick thinking Sabrina won. Dr. Obrecht says it's an illusion, they will show him what his real family looks like. She's disgusted at the proposal halting the events and speculates what will happen when they drop their bombshell after all their planning. Britt reminds her it is all her mother's planning for revenge. Dr. Obrecht grabs Britt's face and tells her weakness is unbecoming. She orders Britt to get dressed because soon all of Port Charles will be talking about her and the surprise they've unleashed. Her mother reminds her of being rejected by Patrick and asks if she is on board. Britt says "Let's do this."
In Lucy's dressing room Richard Simmons hides in a pile of her clothing in a closet. He says, "I'm back." He verbally attacks Lucy and tells her she's not going on to dance. Richard gags and locks her in the closet. He says he's about to go on and do a little number for Port Charles. Behind the stage Emma asks Sabrina if Patrick could be her boyfriend if Milo isn't. Patrick asks Emma if that would make her happy. She agrees it would. On stage, Elizabeth replaces Lucy and introduces a traditional tango with Duke and Lucy. Felix indicates Lucy is unavailable. Duke hurriedly tells Anna to save him and not let Faison take away his tango. Liz reintroduces the couple who perform. Afterwards Duke asks if they can create new memories and take on this brave new world together. They kiss. Patrick, Emma, and Sabrina show up and Emma whispers in Anna's ear. Emma leaves with Sabrina to get ready. Anna tells Patrick it is about time. Patrick says for her too as he sees Duke looking on.
Liz introduces Magic Milo as the next act. He's followed on stage by Max, Felix, Michael, Damian and Anton. They perform a sexy dance routine on and off stage finishing in their underwear with "NURSES BALL" spelled out on their backsides. Epiphany gets the women yelling for them to remove their underwear as Richard falls from behind the curtain struggling with Lucy in her underwear. Lucy exclaims, "It's not an act!" as Richard mocks her from behind. Magic Milo's crew carries Richard out over their shoulders. Spinelli wonders where Ellie is when he returns to the ballroom. Lucy reappears somewhat dressed onstage introducing Rick Springfield arranged to perform by Noah Drake. Bobbie thanks Patrick for the surprise performer and tells him he looks like Springfield. Upstairs Dr. Obrecht calls it the best performance of the night as Britt finishes up. Lucy comes back on to introduce Sabrina and Emma. They sing "Call Me Maybe." Patrick wipes tears away pleased. Britt arrives as Lucy reminds everyone about the purpose of the event and introduces Patrick to speak. He gives a moving speech about Robin and the General Hospital staff. He invites Emma on stage as he thanks everyone including organizations like amFAR for helping Robin's dream become a reality. Britt walks towards them saying she has a few words of her own. Sabrina joins a scared Emma on stage. Patrick asks Britt not to make a scene. She tells him everyone will be interested in what she has to say, including him. Upstairs Dr. Obrecht looks at a picture of Faison saying Britta would make him a very proud papa.
