Storyline

Sam leaps into William "Willie" Walters Jr. who along with his brothers Neil and John are in the process of robbing a bank. It seems that the bank has foreclosed on the family farm and the Walters boys are robbing the bank in order to get the money to pay them back. History records that the brothers are killed trying to escape and Al thinks Sam is there to get them to try and surrender. Sam is also in his home town and knows many of the people involved. Sam suspects that the local banker, Gus Vernon, is repossessing farms to sell the land for commercial development. He gets the evidence they need but not before one of the brothers is shot.

Quotes

Admiral Al Calavicci: Ziggy says this leap's over as soon as the brothers surrender.
Dr. Sam Beckett: I can't do that.
Admiral Al Calavicci: What do you mean you can't? Maybe I'm not making myself clear here. I'm talking life and death here!
Dr. Sam Beckett: So am I. Don't you get it, Al? It doesn't matter if you kill a man with a gun or with a pen. In the end, he's still dead. I'm home, Al, and I'm gonna stay right here.
