Quotes

[after switching places with Sam, Al is for once the one leaping into the body of Captain Tom Jarret, a war hero]
Mike: You look terrific! Considering.
Admiral Al Calavicci: Considering? Considering what?
Mike: What? Tom, you just spent three years in a POW camp. They didn't feed you much, did they?
Admiral Al Calavicci: Bowl of rice a day.
Mike: Germans fed you rice?
Admiral Al Calavicci: The VC.
Mike: VC?
Sam: Al, Al, you're not Admiral Al Calavicci; you're Captain Tom somebody, and you better start acting like him until Ziggy tells us what you're here to change.

The Leap Back , perfect leaping Episode .
24 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

This was Quantum Leap at It's best , especially the switching personalities of Sam and Al , that was great , and seeing where it all happened , finally seeing all the characters in Sam's life . And seeing Sam's wife too, Donna ,beautiful lady and a most beautiful actress that portrayed her as well, Mimi Kuzyk was or is a beautiful actress as well as gifted and talented too .

Quantum Leap , like MASH , Star Trek , and Sliders , were great TV as well , they were what science fiction and comedy was about , . Let's hope the new Journeyman on TV this fall does as well . Too bad Battlestar Galactica is going off the air, that was perfect science fiction and drama combined . So long to everyone on Battlestar Galactica . Thankyou also .
