Storyline

Events in this daytime drama are centred in Port Charles, a community on the coast in upper New York. Ongoing plots are centred around the people who work in General Hospital, people who work in the business community (most notably for the Quartermaines' company ELQ), and some sort of international intrigue involving former agents of the WSB (World Security Bureau). Big plots of the past include Luke and Laura's wedding and Mikkos Cassadine's evil weather machine. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Quotes

Edward Quartermaine #3: You ever pull another stunt like this, you'll wind up in a bed full of tarantulas.
Helena Cassadine: Well, I had nothing to do with this. No, the curse has a life of its own.
Edward Quartermaine #3: The curse is nonsense, and you know it. And if you ever do anything like this, something like this again, I will...
Helena Cassadine: You have had a difficult evening. As we all have. But for future reference, it's never wise to threaten a Cassadine.

The best Soap in the History of Soaps
22 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

I'm so tired of people saying that General Hospital is just a stale old soap opera. GH has been a staple of ABC's daytime lineup for 39 years. It's 3rd in the ratings and I think that ain't half bad considering it's age. The Alexis, Sonny, Carly triangle is a masterpiece destined to go down in GH's extremly long history. The actors and actresses who portray the characters on the show are fantastic and so are the writers. I get very upset when people say that it's a stale soap. So when GH tries to do something exciting and fun people say that it is not true soap storytelling. Just like the revival of the Cassidines (Helena, Stavros). I thought that that was a great storyline. In closing I would just like to say that General Hospital is on the track to taking back the ratings crown from The Young and the Restless. Your the greatest GH!!!!
