* {{Claustrophobia}}: Sonny

to:

* CitizenshipMarriage: A bizarre version when the British Holly feared she would be deported and the Australian Robert offered to marry her. How this would have helped her stay in the United States is never explained.
* {{Claustrophobia}}: SonnySonny.



* 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.

And Gia is just as displeased at the implication that her socioeconomic status makes her unsuitable as she is at the racial one.

Added DiffLines:

* BaitAndSwitch: Stefan flips out when Nikolas becomes involved with Gia, but not because she's black, because she's a commoner. However, Gia believes that it ''is'' because of her race and is just as offended otherwise at the implication that she isn't good enough for Nikolas just because she isn't royalty.


Added DiffLines:

* BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama:
** Tom and Simone in the '80s. Her mother disapproved to the point of tampering with a paternity test to make it seem as though Simone's African-American lover was the father of her child in the hopes that she would leave Tom for him.
** Keesha Ward and Jason Quartermaine in the '90s. Their respective grandparents disapproved. His because of the frequent clashes that the two families had had over the years, hers because she feared that his family would eventually put their collective foot down and forbid Jason from seeing her. This never happened and both families warmed up to and accepted the relationship once they realized that each was a lovely person that anyone would want to be part of their family.
** Nikolas Cassadine and Gia Campbell in the '00s. His uncle Stefan disapproved, though he swore that it was not Gia's race that was the problem, but rather the fact that she was not a member of the aristocracy, an absolute must for a potential bride of Nikolas.

* TheAtoner: Franco. It turns out his psychopathic tendencies were all part of a tumor that he had removed, and after his surgery he changed into a gentle, decent man who, while not with out his edges, wouldn't purposely hurt a fly. And while he's found love with Elizabeth and acceptance with some (but not all) of Port Charles, people are still wary he will revert to his old ways, including Franco himself.
