During the original show up through the 1970s, the show primarily covered Dr. Steve Hardy (John Beradino) and his friend, Nurse Jessie Brewer (Emily McLaughlin). Late in the 1970s, the show was doing badly in the ratings, so a new executive producer, Gloria Monty, decided to move the show's focus away from the hospital and onto material more relevant to a younger audience than the stereotypical "bored housewife", thus bringing in Luke and Laura, (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) and eventually having them marry in a stereotypical fantasy wedding that would not be matched until the real-life marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

When Genie Francis was written out in 2002, Laura was originally supposed to remember her stepfather Rick molested her in the attic when she was a child. This was scrapped at the last-minute after several rewrites and Laura instead remembered she found Rick having sex with a nurse in the attic. Genie Francis has stated in an interview that she went to the producers and appealed to them for a better write-off, but they declined. See more »
You think you can stop me, Natasha, the coward? You watch me kill your mother.
Alexis Davis Cassadine:
I was just a little girl then.
You were pathetic.
Alexis Davis Cassadine:
I'm not a little girl now and I'm going to be damned if I'm going to sit and watch you butcher anybody else again.
Oh, you are damned, Natasha. You were damned the moment you were born, and your mother was damned the instant that she set sights on my husband. You're doomed to watch history repeat it's self.
Alexis Davis Cassadine:
History is not going to repeat itself because you are going ...

General Hospital is a long running soap opera that had wonderful leadership with Gloria Monty and Wendy Riche and amazing writers like Claire Labine. Also great performances by John Beradino,Rachel Ames, Tony Geary,Genie Francis,Tristan Rogers,Finola Hughes,Kimberly Mccullough,Vanessa Marcil,Alicia Leigh Willis and Billy Warlock.
Tristan Rogers and Finola Hughes were incredible as Robert and Anna in the 80s and 90s where GH was filled with action,adventure and romance.
The highlight of the 1990s included storylines of the family. BJ Jones's death, Monica Quartermaine fighting breast cancer, Stone and Robin's love story and their AIDS storyline. Plus the amazing chemistry and connection that made Sonny&Brenda soulmates.
GH hit a rough patch in 2000-2001 with many backstage changes but it is improving in 2002. One of the most promising current storylines is the AJ Quartermaine and Courtney Matthews relationship. Billy Warlock and Alicia Leigh Willis have phenomenal chemistry that makes watching in 2002 a must.
