Sam leaps into the body of Gordon O'Reilly, a bounty hunter trying to return his prisoner to the Sheriff in Decatur. He's arrested Diane Frost who was charged with forging her boss' signature on a million dollars' worth of checks and then skipped bail before going to court. According to Al however, Sam and Diane will be killed that very night. According to the information he has, Diane will shoot Gordon and will then herself be shot trying to run away. She proves to be quite a handful and tries to escape at every opportunity. The truth is that Sam is becoming quite attracted to her and when she reveals why she stole the money, he realizes that he may have put her in danger by turning her over to the local Sheriff.

Enough with all the kissing!
20 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I like Quantum Leap and I've seen every episode from Season 1 to Season 3. But there is one constant that is starting to get annoying with each episode. Why is it that Sam falls in love with every girl he meets when he leaps. That's morbidly fickle of him. I know he's stuck for all eternity jumping through time from one situation to another. But does he have to fall in love with every girl he happens on. And the constant kissing on each episode. I like some adult action but not on a Sci-Fi TV series. Sam makes fun of Al's perversions and his numerous wives, but how is he any different? The only people Sam doesn't kiss are African American women and his Japanese wife in a Season 2 episode. Otherwise, he's basically a man-whore. This particular episode was the worse because the girl is incredibly unattractive and extremely unlikeable. And yet, once again, he takes her to a motel and starts making out. Can't Sam just do his duty in time and leap on?
