      • Lyrics to Brad Maule's song:
        "35 year ago, when I was just a lad
        I wanted to be a doctor... so bad.
        My father said, "Work had son,"
        My mother said, "Have faith."
        Little did they know... I meant on GH.
        I want to be good like Steve & Audrey,
        I want to be bad like the Cassadines,
        I want to be hot like Luke & Laura,
        And freeze Port Charles just a couple more times.
        I want to be honest, kind and caring,
        Cold and ruthless and insane,
        With multiple personalities,
        I want to be a Quartermaine!"

      • "She truly is probably the greatest slut that has ever entered daytime."
        -Stuart Damon (Alan), jokingly commenting on his on-screen wife Monica's affair with Rick.

      • "They were the two people who should have always been together and never were."
        -Rachel Ames (Audrey), reflecting on Dr. Steve Hardy & Nurse Jessie Brewer.

    • NOTES (9)

      • The end credits featured actor Brad Maule (Tony) singing a humorous song about GH.

      • It is noted that famous guest star Elizabeth Taylor (Helena Cassadine) asked to be on the show and her appearance at Luke and Laura's wedding was actually filmed weeks before the wedding and then edited in.

      • It is noted that Demi Moore beat out more than 1000 actresses for the part of Jackie Templeton and was paid only $750 per episode.

      • It is mentioned that the late John Beradino (Dr. Steve Hardy) appeared in more than 4300 episodes of GH.

      • Kathy Kinney's appearance on the special is unsual as she had no connection whatsoever to GH. She appeared at the beginning and end of the special as a waitress talking to Anthony Geary. Although she appears to be in character as Mimi from The Drew Carey Show, she is called Kathy in the special.

      • At the time the special aired, Kin Shriner (Scott), Lynn Herring (Lucy) and Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) all starred on the spin-off series, Port Charles, but only Herring and Lindstrom were also still credited as being regular castmembers of GH.

      • Former cast members interviewed were Maurice Benard (Sonny), Finola Hughes (Anna), Kin Shriner (Scott), Rena Sofer (Lois), John Stamos (Blackie) and Jack Wagner (Frisco). At the time this special aired, Maurice Benard (Sonny) was no longer on the show (having left the previous year) although he eventually returned to the show.

      • Current cast members interviewed were Denise Alexander (Lesley), Rachel Ames (Audrey), Sarah Brown (Carly), Steve Burton (Jason), Leslie Charleson (Monica), Tyler Christopher (Nikolas), Stuart Damon (Alan), Genie Francis (Laura), Peter Hansen (Lee), Lynn Herring (Lucy), Jonathan Jackson (Lucky), Shell Kepler (Amy), Wallace Kurth (Ned), Jon Lindstrom (Kevin), Vanessa Marcil (Brenda), Brad Maule (Tony), Kimberly McCullough (Robin), Stephen Nichols (Stefan), Ingo Rademacher (Jax), Kristina Wagner (Felicia), John J. York (Mac) and Jacklyn Zeman (Bobbie).

      • This primetime special aired on Thursday, April 2, 1998 at 10:00 p.m., one day after the show's 35th anniversary.
