Dr. David Bryant is a scientist and spokesperson for National Pesticide, a company purportedly dumping carcinogenic chemicals near Leopard Frog Lake, the leaking chemicals which are causing cancers and birth defects in newborns and a spate of dead frogs. He stands up for his company in saying that they are doing nothing wrong. In addition, his work is preventing him from spending any time with his family, including his son Jeremy who has Down Syndrome. In David's death, Othniel learns that David really did believe that National was not illegally dumping. But David admits he placed professional success over spending time with Jeremy. Othniel sends David back to 1990, two months prior to Jeremy's birth. He is Gene Fitzsimmons, an on-air reporter whose assignment is to expose National's illegal activities.

Please put this episode on DVD, you producers out there!

I was lucky to see this episode back in 2003. It was absolutely stunning and shocking; I'd give anything to be able to view it again. I really wish it was available on DVD, I'd buy it. To anyone reading this review, if you are ever lucky enough to find this episode, the story of a scientist who wants to turn his life actions around, please watch it, it's amazing! The acting was great; a fictional novel (the Superfund), was written based on this episode. If you love justice and shows full of action and truth, don't pass this by! And producers, please release this episode on DVD, a lot of people really miss it! Twice in a Lifetime is a thought-provoking and beautiful television program that anyone can enjoy. It has some religious tones but isn't very "preachy" if you know what I mean, so it's easy to watch without the heaven stuff being pushed at you. The soundtrack as great, and most of the show was made in Canada. Excellent episode, the ending was so incredible, too!
