Patch and his “Sweet­ness” are one of the big­gest cou­ples to come out of Salem, and by a land­slide, their fans’ fa­vorite mo­ment was when a mute Kayla re­gained her abil­ity to speak dur­ing their 1988 wed­ding. Kayla was us­ing sign lan­guage to com­mu­ni­cate her vows, with sis­ter/ma­tron of honor Kim speak­ing them aloud in her stead. Mid­way through, Kayla hes­i­tated, and Steve signed the word “courage” to her. She then stated, “I, Kayla, take you, Steve, to be my hus­band,” as he prac­ti­cally melted with joy. “One of my fa­vorite scenes ever,” tweeted a fan. “They were the ideal of love in those mo­ments.”

“It was just ro­man­tic soap per­fec­tion,” an­other reader con­cluded. An­other mo­ment from that same year also gar­nered a lot of votes: Steve singing, and sign­ing, “The Rose” to

Kayla when she lost her hear­ing. The scene “will leave me in a pud­dle of tears ev­ery sin­gle time I see it,” sighed one fan.
