* AllGaysArePedophiles: Despite being heterosexual, Andrew struggled with this stereotype during the legendary homophobia storyline in 1992--Marty spread rumors that he'd molested a teenage parishioner in revenge for him rebuffing her advances. Andrew was in fact counseling the boy about his own homosexuality and in the ensuing scandal, had to juggle several dilemmas--defending himself against the accusations, insisting that his personal life was no one's business but his regardless of his sexual orientation, and refusing to break the boy's confidentiality.

* NotSoDifferent: A soap magazine once asked Laura Koffman what kind of a mother her character Cassie would be. She responded, "Dorian (her mother) in disguise--very possessive of her child. Indeed, after miscarrying, she rushed into adopting an abandoned baby, tried to stop his birth mother from visiting, and even tried to kidnap the child, Dorian-like behavior that everyone pitied instead of condemned because of her loss.

* ShoutOut: Luna's walking into heaven is very similar to the ending of Film/{{Ghost}}.

* MayDecemberRomance: First Dorian with Joey, then Dorian with David, which would count as {{squick}} to many when David gets a love scene with her.
** Even squickier was elderly Victor Lord's off-screen but often-mentioned romance with college student Irene, which became creepier (but also more 'logical') when after a {{Retcon}} it was revealed that Victor was a pedophile who had sexually abused his daughter Viki all throughout childhood.

** Blair ensnared Todd this way into their first marriage to get her hands on his money. Todd became suspicious after her ex-husband Asa warned him that Blair had pulled the same stunt on him and demanded that she take a pregnancy test. Much to her shock and relief, it was positiveóBlair had in fact conceived at some point. But she was still found out months later when she miscarried and Todd realized she wasn't as far along as she should have been.



* BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama: Kevin and Rachel. Her father pretty much hated Kevin and the idea of them dating and gave them grief the entire time (quite hypocritical considering that his ex-wife, Rachel's mother, was white).

* WhereDaWhiteWomenAt: Hank and Nora, though their marriage happened off-screen as part of Hank's backstory. This made Hank's objections to their daughter Rachel dating the white Kevin quite hypocritical.
** Hank's brother RJ had a long-lost daughter, fathered during a long-ago love affair with a white woman, with whom he briefly rekindled their relationship when she came to town.

Created by Agnes Nixon, OLTL shared its universe with Nixon's other soap, ''AllMyChildren'', and has had many [[CrossOver crossovers]] with same, including a baby-switch story in 2004. ''One Life to Live'' aired its last episode on January 13th, 2012, and the characters of John [=McBain=] & the Mannings migrated to ''Series/GeneralHospital'' until March 2013. Originally, a company named Prospect Park had purchased the rights to both One Life to Live and All My Children from ABC and was planning to continue the series either on a cable channel or possibly online. Those plans fell through, however, and when the show signed off in 2012, it was presumed that it was gone for good. As of early 2013, however, Prospect Park announced that they would be bringing both shows back after all, with distribution through Hulu and other online video providers. Many of the major performers have agreed to return to the show and shooting began in March 2013, with the premiere on April 29, 2013.

* HotForPreacher: There must be something in the Llanview water. . .
** SuperCouple Max and Gabrielle ran into this problem, when she was so terrified of her feelings for him that she fled to a convent. Him tracking her down and them making love on the grounds of the rectory changed her mind.
** Reverend Andrew Carpenter courted Megan Gordon, Cassie Callison, who he eventually married, and Tea Delgado (complicated by the fact that she herself was married)
** Speaking of Andrew, shortly after being introduced, promiscuous troublemaker Marty Saybrooke repeatedly tried to seduce him. When he rebuffed her advances, she sought revenge by falsely accusing him of molesting a young boy. A few years later, after Marty's RapePortrayedAsRedemption, her feelings resurfaced. This time, Andrew reciprocated and the two had to legitimately struggle to keep their feelings in check, as Andrew was now HappilyMarried to Cassie.
** When Andrew's cousin Maggie came to town, it was immediately obvious that she was slated to be a new love interest for the recently widowed Max Holden, given that [[BelligerentSexualTension they instantly took a dislike to each other]]. Problem is, Maggie was a postulate who was due to take her final vows any day now. She gave it up to be with Max, but left town to resume her studies when the relationship fell apart.
** Roughly a decade after the Andrew/Marty storyline, Joey Buchanan returned to town as a new seminary graduate under Andrew's tutelage. He very quickly fell for the married Jen Rappaport, jeopardizing his career.
