We know what it’s like to be alone.

In this edition of the “Days of our Lives’” Throwback Thursday poll, Soaps.com takes readers back to 1997 when Lucas Roberts learned that Sami Brady might not live…

This week in Salem, Theresa begged Brady to fight for his life following an automobile crash, and back then, Lucas pleaded with Sami not to die when she was in the hospital in a coma. Sami, who had been accidentally run over – twice – by Austin Reed, wound up in a coma when Lucas arrived at the hospital to check on his best friend. He encountered Marlena Evans and John Black emerging from Sami’s room and they let him know the situation was grim. Lucas’ mother Kate Roberts looked on as Lucas insisted on seeing Sami.

Inside Sami’s room, Lucas encountered Austin and Carrie Brady. He shouted at Austin that this was all his fault, but Carrie asked him to stop – her sister was dying. They left Lucas alone with Sami, and he told her, “You can’t die. You can’t leave me alone; you’re the only friend I have.” Kate listened from the door as Lucas told Sami they were alike and begged her not to die.

Do you remember what Marlena and John were going to get when Lucas met them outside Sami’s room?
