General Hospital Details

General Hospital airs on ABC. It's based in fictional Port Charles, New York.

The show is the longest-running daytime drama produced on Hollywood. It went to a full hour of airtime in 1978.

General Hospital is beloved for its action-paced plots that are quite different from the typical domestic and social issues that had been the sole focus of daytime dramas for decades.

A few years ago, when the series celebrated its 40th anniversary, TV Guide dubbed it "The Greatest Soap Opera of All-Time."

General Hospital Quotes

Claudia: Oh, you're in a foul mood, huh? Looking for trouble?
Sonny: You know, I have not been fair to you. I know I called you a lying whore, and all that. But hey, you know what? At least you don't pretend to be anything else.

Lucky, it's called cleavage, and it's the best weapon we've got.
