Flying with his wife to a weekend get-away in Oregon, Dan enters the restroom during the flight and comes out sometimes in the 1970's, when smoking was common on flights -- and just in time to help deliver an unwed mother's daughter. His next trip back in time also has his path cross the woman's, and now she is the mother of a teenager. Figuring this woman is the focus of his current trips, Dan is confused when his next trip occurs years after the woman's death . . . but then he comes across the daughter and the focus shifts to her and the father she never knew. He even encounters the father alone on another airliner, as well as running in to Olivia, herself traveling through time. Written by

When Dan Vassar travels back to the 1980s for the first time in this episode, the cars in the background are not of the period. Of note are: 2007+ Toyota FJ Cruiser, 2000s BMW X5, 2000s Honda Odyssey, 2006+ Honda Civic Hybrid (Green Cab), 2000s Ford Explorer, 2000s Mercedes-Benz ML-class, and a 2000s Volvo S60. It is obvious that the production team only placed parked cars from the period without bothering to block off roads of modern traffic. Editing and shot framing was only partially successful in limiting the screen time of modern cars. See more

I've been looking for you for years.
Yeah. Yeah, that was me.

I checked with the airline. I ran ads in the paper. Some people claimed to be you, but they were all weirdos.
Well, your search is over.
