GH Luke and Scotty. Their rivalry lasted forever and it wasn't some retconned thing like the way they added all the extra Cassadines in the 90s.

I would also say Bobbie and Lucy, and even though it was brief it was very memorable: Anna and Olivia. Luke and Helena of course, and I guess I would add Leslie/Monica.

I thought Sharon/Grace worked better with Grace as Sharon's friend, insecure and jealous and stupid and doing the "right thing" for selfish reasons (like keeping Cassie for a year), but still caring about her. Once Grace turned all-bad, Gareis lost any spark.

Soap rivalries in recent years have been too one-sided to make me care, other than anger at the storyline (ANY Sheffer rivalry EVER; "good" Tea and "bad" Blair; "good" Kelly and "bad" Blair, etc.), both characters are destroyed (Phyllis/Sharon) or they are just frankly forced, bizarre and anticlimactic (Todd/Patrick, David and the Martin family, Ryan and anyone).
