My daughter's named after character
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To be honest, we don't remember much about this episode. But, my husband and I didn't have a name picked out for our daughter, even though i was 8 1/2 months pregnant. After watching this episode, we looked at each other and both went "Simone"....hmm...it stuck! Great memories of this series, and this episode in particular! I do remember that Chelsea Field and Corey Feldman were in the episode. She went on to marry Scott Bakula from "quantum leap" fame, then later "star trek-enterprise". We both felt that this is one of the best series ever put on television. Great writing, great acting, and humor. We still watch re-runs when ever they come on the sci-fi network....and now our kids are hooked as well!!!
