* CrazyJealousGuy: Paul is so incensed that ex-wife Christine is going to marry Michael (while [[JerkassHasAPoint he has a point]] given Michael and Christine's ugly history, he's also a complete hypocrite given that their marriage ended because he cheated on her) that he goes over to her house and ends up forcing himself on her.



* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Juliet plys Cane with sake, getting him so drunk that he doesn't even remember what happened between them. Flashbacks have revealed that they did in fact have sex, and everyone, including Cane himself, views his behavior as him having cheated on his wife, rather than him having been taken advantage of.

** Sharon also. It took a long time for Nikki to stop suspecting that she was a GoldDigger because of her lesser financial status, and even then, she still never felt that Sharon was good enough for Nick.

* {{Retool}}: The show is notable as one of the few soaps to completely [=retool=] and write out the bulk of its core families. According to TheOtherWiki, this was the result of the show's expansion from 30 minutes to an hour in 1980. The expansion forced the producers to renegotiate contracts; when many actors chose to leave, the writers wrote out the remaining main characters from the Foster and Brooks families, except Jill Foster. They then refocused their attention on a new pair of main families, the Williams and the Abbots. The writers later added more families: the Newmans, the Winters and, more recently, the Fisher-Baldwin family.

* {{Crossover}}: While not as frequently as its Creator/ABC counterparts, and despite some continuity errors--actors on one show have played a completely different character on another, it's been well established that the show exists in the same universe as ''Series/TheBoldAndTheBeautiful'' (the most notable transfers were of this show's Sheila and Lauren to the other) and to a lesser example, the other Creator/CBS soaps ''Series/AsTheWorldTurns'' and ''Series/GuidingLight''. (Michael Baldwin made brief appearances on both).

* PlayingGertrude: A standard SoapOpera trope, but the recent recasting of Lily and Cane's twins takes this to extremes. The actors appear to be in their mid-teens, while Christel Khalil is only 29.

** Abby's mother Ashley can be this as well. While generally very intelligent and levelheaded she's dumb as a stick when it comes to relationships.
