Episode Notes
Guy Stockwell (Jake Edwards) is the older brother of Dean Stockwell (Rear Admiral Albert "Al" Calavacci). However, they do not share a scene.

Al says that Ziggy had calculated that Sam should have leaped into Texas in the 1950s. Sam quips that the current leap might be a little pitstop before that one. Prophetically, the next episode, "How the Tess Was Won", takes place in Texas in 1956.

Episode Quotes
Sam: Give me a break, sister, just five minutes.
Sister Angela: How did you ever get to be a prize fighter?
Sam: I just kinda fell into it.

Sam: (narrating) Great. I'm on the take, wear polyester clothes, and live above a bar in an apartment decorated like a gym. If I have a room mate, he probably has cauliflower ears.

Sam: (looking up at the sky) Hope you know what you're doing.

Al: You gotta get in shape, Sam!
