Events in this daytime drama are centered in Port Charles, a community on the coast in upper New York. On-going plots are centered around the people who work in General Hospital, people who work in the business community (most notably for the Quartermaines' company E.L.Q.), and some sort of international intrigue involving former Agents of the W.S.B. (World Security Bureau). Big plots of the past include Luke (Anthony Geary) and Laura's (Genie Francis') wedding and Mikkos Cassadine's (John Colicos') evil weather machine.

Carly Corinthos: Sonny and I are parents together, and that's as far as it goes. Anything else is over.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Why?
Carly Corinthos: Let's pull one thing out of the hat - Sam.
Courtney Matthews Morgan: Oh, come on, Carly, you don't honestly believe that he loves her?
Carly Corinthos: It's got nothing to do with love, Courtney. It's about keeping score. You know how it works. You disagree with Sonny, five points off. You cross him, ten points off. You do something that he thinks is betrayal, ok, you're out of the game. And right now, Sam's playing the game perfectly, ok? So let her...

Best Soap Ever!
22 February 2006 | by RayvynSee all my reviews

When I was a kid in the 70s, I watched soaps with my mother. It was all the ABC ones. All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. When I was about 12 or 13. Luke and Laura got married, I wanted to see it so bad, I told my mother I was sick and stayed home from school. Over the years I stopped watching the other two and stuck with GH. It's still the best soap I've ever seen. It's not as good as it used to be but it's good. I would love to see less Sonny and Carly and more Luke and (whoever). When Luke was the hero, the show as truly great. Since now it's all about Sonny, it's getting really boring. The same old mobster stuff, Sonny isn't heroic he's a crook.

Maybe in the future GH will regain it's backbone. Maybe draw clear lines between good and evil like it did in it's hey day.
