We heard from a mas­sive amount of still-ar­dent Sonny and Brenda fans — but they were di­vided on which of the duo’s mo­ments was tops on the ro­man­tic scale. How­ever, sev­eral fa­vorites did emerge, start­ing with two from 1994: their steamy love­mak­ing ses­sion on the beach in Puerto

Rico in 1994 af­ter he res­cued her from mob­ster

Her­nando Rivera’s goons, and the first time he said,

“I love you.” Re­calls one fan, “He was so scared to tell her. He had such ma­jor trust is­sues so the lead-up to this was ev­ery­thing.” Their first Valen­tine’s Day to­gether in 1995 (Brenda sur­prised Sonny wear­ing only a red bow and purred, “Un­wrap me”) was an­other pop­u­lar pick. From 1997, fans gave shoutouts to the duo mak­ing love in the cave with their dy­ing breaths (Harry Sil­ver had trapped them; they were ul­ti­mately res­cued); Sonny propos­ing to Brenda with his mother’s ring; and their last dance to­gether be­fore he left her at the al­tar (“So beau­ti­ful yet heart­break­ing,” in one fan’s es­ti­ma­tion); and fi­nally, from 2002, four years af­ter Brenda’s pre­sumed death, when Sonny saw her alive on the steps of the church. “The look be­tween them made me weak in the knees,” wrote one of their sup­port­ers.
