September 13, 1956/Summer 1968: With the help of Al, the holograph Observer, Sam attempts to pilot the X-2 successfully. However, once he succeeds, he discovers that he has another mission to complete. Once that is completed, Sam leaps into the life of a minor league baseball player who must bat his team out of last place.
Weird Ernie calls Sam in from the barbecue to have him take a questionnaire to confirm Bird Dog's (joke) theory of memory loss at high Mach speed. As Sam leaves, they wonder if they're going to make a major discovery, or are the target of a practical joke...Read the full recap
Sam: Al! I wish you would stop doing that.
Sam: Walking through things.
Al: Well, you want me to walk around something that isn't even here? All right, I'll walk around it.
Weird Ernie: If you don't clear this radio, Captain Birdell, the only yellow rose you'll be seeing will be the one I'll shove up your afterburners.
Al: Come on, I hate to miss the game.
Sam: You already know how it's going to end.
Al: I knew how it was gonna end when I took Brenda into the filing room. I still took her.
Sam: Why didn't I leap all the way?
Al: Twelve years in a blink isn't bad, pal. A couple more of those you'll be back home.
Sam: If I leap forward again. What if I leap back?
Al: That is always possible.
Sam: In other words, I could be bouncing around in time forever?
Al: No. Nobody lives forever.
Sam: Who created this Ziggy?
Al: You. Quantum Leap is your project, Sam. You're the genius behind it. At least you were before your brain got magna-foozled.
Sam: No, no. See, I'm a medical doctor. I found that much out.
Al: You hold six doctorates, Sam. Medicine is just one of them. Your special gift was quantum physics. Time magazine even called you the next Einstein. The truth is... if there's one guy who could figure how to bring you back... it's you.
Sam: And I can't even remember my name.
Al: (hesitates) It's Beckett. Sam Beckett.
Sam: You know, maybe this quantum leaping isn't such a bad deal after all. Getting a second chance to put things right, to make the world a better place. Who knows what I can accomplish before I'm done.
Sportscaster: When it comes to that final out in life, whether you pop out, ground out or fly out, remember: Shneck and Shneck (funeral home) will always be there to bring you home.
