Lucas tells Sami that she is so hot, gorgeous and begs her not to go out with Tony but to go out with him. He tells Sami that he wants her and is in love with her. He adds that it isn’t because she is Will’s mother or has a body to die for, it’s the way she makes him feel, she makes him feel so alive and no woman has ever made him feel that way.
