Storyline

In 1985, Sam leaps into the body of soap opera Kyle Hart just as they are filming a scene. He is the star and plays a doctor on the show, the most popular soap in America. As part of a contest he has lunch with the winner, Norma Jean Pilcher, who seems to have difficulty differentiating between the real world and the world in the soap opera. In no time, he's forced at gunpoint into Norma Jean's van - with her husband Hank at wheel - heading to Millie's house, someone she describes as her mother. When he hears the reason why she's kidnapped him, he knows he has to get out of there. Al tells him however that the reports they've found indicate he'll be found with a shotgun blast to the head.

Trivia

In the original history, Kyle Hart was found wandering around mountains 500 miles from California on May 18, 1985, two weeks after he was kidnapped by the Pilchers. He had been shot in the head with a shotgun and remembered nothing. See more »

Goofs

Al refers to Kyle Hart as Lyle Hart even though in previous scenes his spoken name is Kyle, and a magazine cover is even shown with "Kyle". Adding to the confusion, the end credits list the character as Lyle Hart. See more »

Quotes

Sam: Why am I here?
Al: Er, well, we're not sure.
Sam: You're not...
Al: No, Ziggy, uh, had a new data search component installed, and we had to have it shipped in from Hong Kong, and I think that gave a little jet lag to the modem of the floppy disc.
Sam: Why do you make this stuff up all the time? Why don't you just say to me, 'Sam, we don't know.' Why don't you just do that for once, instead of makin' it up all the time?
Al: Well - that wouldn't be any fun.
