** And due to (what can now be called the "original") OLTL's cancellation, Todd Manning, oldest child Starr, and John [=McBain=] headed to Port Chuck, with occasional appearances by Todd ex-wives Blair and Tea. As part of the agreement between ABC and Prospect Park (the current licensee of OLTL), those characters were removed from the show in early 2013. However, their portrayers Roger Howarth, Kristen Alderson and Michael Easton wound up staying on the show as different characters (with Howarth taking over the role of Franco Baldwin[[note]]previously played by [[TheDanza James]] [[Creator/JamesFranco Franco]] in several guest spots starting in 2010[[/note]], and Easton and Alderson as new characters Silas Clay and Kiki Jerome). As of 2015, Howarth is the only ''OLTL'' holdover that still appears on ''GH''[[note]]Easton left in July 2015 when Silas was killed off; Alderson left several months earlier, with Hayley Erin taking over the role of Kiki[[/note]].

* CrazyPrepared: After all the 1980s style adventure movie storylines, it was established that Luke and Laura Spencer both keep go-bags in their closet just in case they need to leave town suddenly for any number of reasons -- being chased by an enemy, having to hare off to the wilderness to rescue a wayward child, whatever. The exact contents of these bags has never been fully revealed, but its known that Laura's included $10,000 in various foreign currencies, a pipe wrench, thirty feet of surgical tubing, and 2000 rounds of hollow point ammunition, while Luke's contained a sealed canister of liquid nitrogen, a pound of beef jerky, a razor-sharp dagger, and a copy of the book "The Way Things Work". ''Both'' bags contained ten rolls of duct tape, each.

* ShoutOut: Way back in 1985, during the "Ice Princess" storyline, there was a ShoutOut that likely few regular ''Series/GeneralHostpital'' 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".

* YourSonAllAlong: Alan and Monica spent several years believing that their son AJ was the result of Monica's affair, before finding out that he was Alan's son after all. Unfortunately, crucial bonding time had been lost between the two, resulting in years of AJ being TheUnfavorite (to the son conceived during ''Alan's'' affair) and him being an alcoholic failure. Decades later, AJ (correctly) suspected that he was the father of Carly's unborn child, but she lied and told him that his brother Jason was, fearing that either AJ or her boyfriend Tony would take the child away from her. Years later, Jason's girlfriend Robin finally told AJ the truth.
