Live your best pos­si­ble life by tak­ing a few cues from Sami!

As the count­down to Sami’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES re­turn con­tin­ues, we look at the lessons we’ve learned from her!

To say that DAYS OF OUR LIVES’ Sami has made a few mis­takes would be an un­der­state­ment. But with any luck, she’s at least learned a few lessons along the way. When the beloved char­ac­ter re­turns later this month, will she wind up re­peat­ing the sins of her past… or think­ing up en­tirely new ones? In prepa­ra­tion for her ar­rival, here are a few things she’s al­ready taught us over the years!

IT HELPS TO KNOW PEO­PLE IN POWER

If you are go­ing to play fast and loose with the law, do it in your home­town, where you hap­pen to be re­lated to most of the po­lice force. Sami may have gone to jail, but she never stayed there!

TO THINE OWN SELF BE TRUE

Think­ing food was her en­emy, a young Sami was eas­ily con­vinced to go on a crash diet to gain Austin’s at­ten­tion. But in­stead of win­ning a man, she wound up bat­tling bu­limia.

DO WHAT­EVER IT TAKES

How do you get re­venge on your en­e­mies when they can see you com­ing a mile away? Sami dis­guised her­self as a guy named Stan… earn­ing big points for orig­i­nal­ity!

DON’T GET TOO AT­TACHED TO YOUR NAME

Hav­ing got­ten hitched to five dif­fer­ent hus­bands (some more than once!) and used an alias or two, Sami’s adopted a take-it-or-leave-it at­ti­tude to monikers… which is the same at­ti­tude she’s had to­ward men!

LOVE THE ONE YOU’RE WITH

Thanks to that old Salem sta­ple, the baby switch, Sami raised Mia and Chad’s daugh­ter as her own.

WORK ON YOUR POKER FACE

If you’re gonna tell lies, you had bet­ter get so good at it that you could have a ca­reer in pol­i­tics.

RE­VENGE IS PER­SONAL

When Alan Har­ris’ rape trial went south, his vic­tim, Sami, shot him in the groin, cas­trat­ing him!

SOME­TIMES LOST THINGS DON’T NEED TO BE FOUND

De­ter­mined to keep Austin for her­self, Sami turned the tem­po­rary am­ne­sia she sus­tained after he ac­ci­den­tally ran her down on New Year’s Eve into a longer-term gig so he wouldn’t an­nul their mar­riage.

LOOKS CAN BE DE­CEIV­ING

Keep your eyes open, be­cause it’s all fun and games un­til some­one re­places your hunky beau with a guy who hap­pens to look ex­actly like him!

STAY IN SHAPE

Be­cause you just never know when you’ll be called upon to drag an un­con­scious per­son into a nearby river. Right, Nick?

SIS­TERS SHOULDN’T AL­WAYS SHARE EV­ERY­THING

Car­rie and Sami treated guys like Austin, Rafe and Lu­cas as if they were an­tiques. Girls, some things should not be kept in the fam­ily!

MONEY MAKES EV­ERY­THING BET­TER

Los­ing her beloved EJ was a bit­ter pill to swal­low, but the tip he left al­low­ing her to clean out his evil dad’s cof­fers? That went down like honey!

Sami hated be­ing a “bars ten­der.”

“The fellas won’t know what hit ’em!”

“With this frame, I thee wed.”

“Sami, it’s not called bu­limia ’cause it’ll get you a boo.”

“Miss­ing some­thing, are ya, Alan?” “What’s the equiv­a­lent of a baby switch for dirty di­a­pers?”

“What? Did you for­get how to sit up now?” “Why, Austin, that is the cutest puppy you have there.”

“Damn, murder is hard, yo.”

“No. Sorry, I can’t be with­out him on GAME OF THRONES night.”

“I also have money hid­den in 204 books in this very li­brary.”

“But he’s never worn Brut be­fore.”
