It's 1961 and Sam leaps into the body of a gawky, pimple-faced teenager, Cam Wilson. His older sister Cheryl represents many of the ideals of the times and is thrilled when she and her fiancé are accepted into the Peace Corps and are headed for Tonga. The fiancé, Bob Thompson, is the problem however and Sam's job is to make sure they don't get married. Bob has no plans to go to Tonga and has actually accepted a partnership in his father's car dealership. He's also a bit of a brute and has already been violent toward Cheryl. Cam tries to expose Bob for what he is by challenging him to a car race. Written by
