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.

Quotes

[last lines]
Ben, Lyle Hart's Agent: [after Sam has been freed from his kidnappers] I was just thinking. It might be interesting, not to mention a ratings bonanza, if we were to, say, incorporate a similar ordeal into the life of one Dr. Craig Connor. Hm? I'll call the studio. Welcome back.
[leaves]
Sam: Did you hear that? He wants to take what happened to me here and put it on the show.
Al: Yeah, yeah, I know. I heard, yeah.
Sam: Is that ethical? It can't be ethical.
Al: No, it's television.
