Quantum Leap: Play It Again, Seymour - April 14, 1953

April 14, 1953: Sam leaps into a man with looks that could double for Humphrey Bogart. He is Nick Allen, a private investigator looking for the murderer of his partner and, if he does not find the perpetrator in time, himself.

Episode Notes
Paul Linke (Lionel) would later play Sheriff Ben Masters in "The Boogieman - October 31, 1964".

Chronologically, this is the earliest leap within Sam's lifetime. He was born on August 8, 1953, four months after the events of this episode.

Season 1 ended with this episode.
But Sam's leap out of this episode is into a female secretary; that episode was broadcast as the 4th of season 2 ("What Price, Gloria?"), instead of a continuation of season 1.

Episode Quotes
Al: Sam...you know, Allison could be the killer.
Sam: No.
Al: No? Why are you saying no? (reading) Because her body could part the red army?
Sam: No. Because we've got Clapper.
Al: Careful, Sam. There was no cure for that in 1953.
