An ABC soap opera revolves the lives around the people related to General Hospital in Port Charles, New York. The main families in this soap are: The Spencers, The Cassadines and the Quartermaines. The Spencer Family and the Cassadine family are rivals, as are the Cassadines and the Quartermaines. The characters which have stood the test of time are Luke and Laura Spencer, Bobbie Spencer, Alan and Monica Quartermaine, Edward and Lila Quartermaine, and Helena Cassadine. This show is quite addictive and has fairly quick moving plot-lines (for a soap).
