Joey De Nardo / Chuck Danner


Sam leaps into the body of Chuck Danner, a piano-playing lounge singer. Al tells Sam he's there to keep Chuck, whose real name is Joey Di Nardo, from being killed. It turns out that he witnessed a mob killing so he's changed his name and has been on the run ever since. Now re-united with his old girlfriend, klutzy Lorraine, he's again on the run from a mob hit man. Lorraine is still in love with Joey but she is convinced that she is a jinx and all of this is her fault. Lorraine's new boyfriend had encouraged her to find Joey and get rid of any ghosts that may still be around but when he hears that there's a hit man after them he comes to get her. Turns out he had his own reasons for wanting Lorraine to find Joey. Written by garykmcd
