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

Ric Lansing: Don't threaten Alcazar. Don't be around Durant. Just do yourself a favor, go home, be with your wife and your kids. And try your best to pretend like you're a law-abiding citizen.
Sonny Corinthos: What is motivating this brotherly concern here?
Ric Lansing: Look, you may be an amoral thug, but you're not stupid, all right? You're smart enough not to make public death threats. The fact that you just did proves you're nothing thinking clearly.

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.
