Did You Know?


In the episode Goodbye Norma Jean, Sam leaped into the body of Marilyn Monroe's Chauffer. While a stage actor during the mid 1980s Scott Bakula co-starred in a short lived Broadway play called Joe and Marilyn, which portrayed Monroe. See more »


Barbara Whitmore claims to have seen all of Marilyn Monroe's films, from Dangerous Years (1947) to Let's Make Love (1960). This is an impossibility, as Let's Make Love (1960) was released on 8 September 1960, whereas Sam "leaps" into 4 April. See more »

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.
