Storyline

It's the early 1950s an Sam has leaped into the body of a New York City private detective, Nick Allen. Apart from the fact that Allen bears a striking resemblance to Humphrey Bogart, Sam feels that he has leaped into a cheap pulp novel, something that proves to be all too accurate when he realizes he knows the story and is constantly having a sense of déjà vu. With his partner murdered, Sam has to not only find the murderer but launch the career of a prospective writer. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

[Sam has the theory that Allison and Seymour are going to be killed by Klapper]
Dr. Sam Beckett: I don't know, Al, it just seems like... the most logical explanation.
Admiral Al Calavicci: A more logical one is that Allison is Klapper. You want to have safe sex with her, you'd better wear a bullet proof vest.
