Goofs

Previously stated to be an erroneous report of a goof, there really is an anachronism with Al's saying that there were only four more days until Marilyn's death, and the completion of The Misfits. At 33:50 - 33:55, Al says that in the original time line, Marilyn did complete the picture, referring to the new one. That couldn't be done in four days. If, in the original time line she died at Lawford's party she would also not have completed the new picture. See more »

Quotes

Marilyn Monroe: [rehearsing a scene for her current film] When you really love someone, you both should be willing to teach each other everything. We're all dying. Aren't we? All of us. Old folks, and kids, husbands and wives. And we're not learning a damn thing.

Oh Boy! It's Marilyn Monroe
10 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode is a great episode, there is a great buzz about the episode from the very start as soon as Marilyn is seen on screen and Sam mutters the immortal words 'Oh Boy'. Watching Sam try to remain his normal goody self whilst in front of this superstar makes the episode that more enjoyable, especially as Al is trying to get Sam to let go of his normal attitude and go wild. Even if this episode does rewrite history somewhat, it's fictional and not to be taken seriously. This episode is filled with a lot of emotion, it is filled with Sam trying frantically to stop Miss Monroe from her timely demise.

Quantum Leap takes a Quantum Leap at giving people a look at the real Marilyn Monroe.
