Sam finds himself just finishing a piano performance in a huge music hall. As the audience bursts into applause, Sam has no choice but to stand up and take a bow. He notices a dog at his side, barking at him, realizes he's wearing dark glasses, and concludes that he's supposed to be blind. A woman off-stage, his assistant Michelle Stevens, calls over the dog, Chopin. It drags Sam along with him and she congratulates Sam, referring to him as Andrew. The crowd calls for an encore while Chopin growls at Sam, sensing who he really is, and Michelle is surprised that Sam isn't going out for the encore. Realizing he has no choice, Sam goes back to the piano, hesitates, and then starts playing <em>Chopsticks</em>. The audience thinks he's trying to be humorous and applaud his effort. As Sam leaves the stage, Michelle says she's looking forward to seeing what he'll play tomorrow night...

Episode Quotes
Sam: There are always a few surprises associated with time travel. Some of them are small. And some of them are not so small. Leaping into the life of a working woman taught me that surprises and problems come in all shapes and sizes. Some were easy to handle. Some were difficult. And some were a pleasure. But that's the great thing about quantum leaping--I can always count on it... being a surprise.

Michelle Stevens: Do you mind if I ask you a question?
Sam: As long as it's not about anything personal or professional.

Agnes Stevens: And remember, a fool's dreams may be dreams...
Agnes and Michelle: ... but they also belong to a fool.

Al: That reminds me of a girl I used to know. She had an act in Tijuana. Her name was Evita Evilitita. She used to lie on her back on the bench and play oldies with her toesies. Then she would kneel on the bench and bend over and play modern music with her...
Sam: Al, Al, I get the picture and thank you.

Michelle Stevens: God, wouldn't it be wonderful to have a sense of smell that sensitive?
Waitress: Not with my husband's feet, no.

Al: (to Chopin the dog) Your mother is afraid of cats.

Al: Gee, this dog eats better than I do.
Sam: This dog works harder than you do.

Sam: My God, I'm playing the piano at Carnegie Hall.
