* DiscriminateAndSwitch: Caucasian Stefan flips out upon discovering that his son/nephew Nikolas is dating the African-American Gia, angering them, but Stefan swears that it's not her race that's the problem, it's the fact that she isn't a member of the aristocracy, an absolute must for a potential bride of Nikolas'. True, considering that he was consistently nasty and disapproving of all of Nikolas' girlfriends who were commoners, but quite hypocritical, considering that his own love interests weren't of Noble birth.


Added DiffLines:

* FamilyRelationshipSwitcheroo: Stefan is introduced as Nikolas' uncle, but dialogue between him and Laura reveals that he's actually his father. They agree to keep it secret so that Nikolas can keep his princely birthright. But a few years later, it turned Nikolas was Stavros' son after all--their sadistic mother, who inexplicably despised Stefan, knew of his affair with Laura and manipulated a blood test so that Stefan would think Nikolas was his, wanting Stefan to get his heart broken when the truth came out.

* ShipSinking: The legendary SuperCouple of Luke and Laura of all people where subjected to this. Starting in 1995 when the couple first became estranged when she couldn't deal with his involvement with the mob anymore, then kicking into high gear in 1998 when they were forced to deal with the fact that he'd raped her 19 years earlier, the writers threw one problem after another at them until they finally divorced in 2001, a few months before they would have celebrated their 20th anniversary. Despite the unanimous belief that they still care very much about each other, all attempts at reconciliation have failed. To the point that when he was leaving the show, Anthony Geary, Luke's portrayer, outright described them as being "toxic to each other by now", in response to hopes that Genie Francis (who played Laura) would return to the show so that the two could go RidingIntoTheSunset. Possibly for good seeing as how he and Tracy may be out adventuring.
* ShoutOut: Way back in 1985, during the "Ice Princess" storyline, there was a ShoutOut that likely few regular ''Series/GeneralHospital'' viewers of the time would have understood. Secret agent Robert Scorpio, having gone to his agency for help against the Consadine plot to freeze Port Charles, comes back after being told he was on his own. Scorpio calls Luke Spencer on a payphone, and when Luke answers, Scorpio says, "Dark side of the moon, side two, song two," to which Luke responds, "I figured it would be like that." Then they hang up. The line is a reference to the Music/PinkFloyd song "Us vs. Them", the second song on side two of their legendary album, "Dark Side of the Moon".
