Did You Know?
"Al the Bartender" was modeled after Donald P. Bellisario
's father Albert Bellisario. The photographs in the bar are of Al Bellisario, and the photograph under the end credits is of Al Bellisario holding a young Donald Bellisario at an air show in Pittsburg PA. See more
Al tells Sam he doesn't know what it looks like when Sam Leaps, because every time it happens Al returns to the Imaging Chamber. This directly conflicts with several of the series' episodes where Al can clearly be seen reacting to Sam's Leaps, even waving goodbye in a couple of shows. The most notorious of these conflicts is from "Good Morning, Peoria" where Al stands too close to a radio antenna, glows blue, and thinks he's Quantum Leaping. See more
No, it's Catain Z-Ro. Is there a Captain Galaxy too?
It must be on channel 8. Al don't get channel 8 so good. Only sometimes late at night, when the signal bounces off the iodine layer.
You mean the ionosphere. The signal bounces off the ionosphere.
Yeah, that too.
