Lucas made the following proposal to Sami at the Penthouse Grill in front of all of Salem on 8-5-04
I apologize. Excuse me everyone, can I have your attention please. I apologize, I don't mean to interrupt your beautiful evening, but, I'd like you all to share in an incredible moment as I ask the most beautiful woman in the world to be my wife. That's right. Now, I know to most of you, this comes as a surprise. Sami and I haven't always gotten along too well. In fact, we've dedicated most of our lives to making each other miserable. But we've managed to call a truce for the sake of our son. If you ask me, I think it happened at the perfect time. As you all are aware it's been a very very difficult year for us. And I'm not exactly sure how it happened, but somehow these former enemies turned to each other and relied on each other, and in the process they fell in love. Maybe we saw a side to each other that we never saw before. I know I saw a person who hurt and loved more deeply than anyone I have ever seen in my life. Yet she is reluctant to marry me, reluctant to trust me. I'm hoping this will change her mind.
(Sami shakes her head, and the lights go down - Lucas then sings When a man loves a woman to Sami as we see many Sami and Lucas flashbacks)
(Lucas gets down on one knee and pulls our a ring)
Samantha Jean Brady, mother of my son, and the true love of my life, will you make me the happiest man in the world? Will you marry me?
