Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Victor Panzini a trapeze artist along with his sister Eva and his father Laszlo. There is much tension in the Panzini family resulting from the death of the family matriarch a year ago. She fell during a performance while attempting a triple somersault and Laszlo blames his son who was acting as her catcher. Al tells Sam, who is afraid of heights, that in two days time, Eva Panzini will attempt the triple with her father as her catcher and she too will fall to her death. The only solution is for Sam to overcome his fears and take his father's place. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Admiral Al Calavicci: You can't reach! You gotta wait for her to come to you, and then you grab her. If you had done that, you would have caught her, just like on the double.
Dr. Sam Beckett: You really think so?
Admiral Al Calavicci: [laughing] Of course! Am I ever wrong? Marriages don't count.
