Dear Soaps,
I'm a little confused about how the character of Carly Corinthos was introduced on General Hospital. Can you refresh my memory? &#151 Jackie S.

Dear Jackie,
If you thought you had troubles with your mama, think again. When Carly first came to Port Charles in 1996, she secretly wanted to punish Bobbie Spencer, who had given Carly up at birth. Carly maneuvered herself into the good nurse's life, and promptly proceeded to steal Bobbie's then-husband, Tony Jones. Things got even more out of control when Carly got pregnant and Tony, who had been led to believe that little Michael was his son, kidnapped the baby. Fortunately, this serious standoff finally brought Carly and Bobbie together.
