Quantum Leap (TV Series 1989–1993) Poster


Scott Bakula: Dr. Sam Beckett, John Beckett



  • [Repeated line] 

    Sam : Oh, boy...

  • Al : Oh, well, almost all animals can see me. But you know, there must be something weird lookin' about me, because I seem to intimidate them.

    Sam : Maybe it's your clothes.

  • the Devil (as Al) : What gives you the right to leap about time, putting right what I made wrong.

    Sam : I'm just trying to get home.

    the Devil (as Al) : Well, you're not going to make it!

  • [repeated line - season 1] 

    Sam : It all started when a time travel experiment I was conducting went... a little ka-ka. In the blink of a cosmic clock I went from quantum physicist to air force test pilot. Which could have been fun... if I knew how to fly. Fortunately, I had help. An observer from the project named Al. Unfortunately, Al's a hologram, so all he can lend is moral support. Anyway, here I am. Bouncing around in time, putting things right which once went wrong. A sort of time traveling Lone Ranger, with Al as my Tonto. And I don't even need a mask. Oh boy.

  • [his life in the 70's] 

    Sam : Great. I'm on the take, I wear polyester clothes and I live above a bar in an apartment decorated like a gym.

  • Sam : What is she doing in Syracuse?

    Al : I bet a lot people ask themselves that question.

  • Sam : Leaping about in time, I've found that there are some things in life that I can't change, and there are some things that I can. To save a life, to change a heart, to make the right choice. I guess that's what life's about}: making the right choice at the right time.

  • Sam : Say something to me in Spanish.

    Al : Uh, tu casa o mi casa.

    Sam : My place or yours - Al!

  • Sam : I can't have a life. All I do is live someone else's life. I right their wrongs, I fight their fights - geez, I feel like I'm Don Quixote.

  • [talking about God] 

    Sam : In case you haven't noticed, Al, the Committee isn't running this Project anymore... He is.

  • Al : Their only desire is for you to pamper them, and play with their...

    Sam : Al!

    Al : With their hair! Their hair!

  • [about Al] 

    Sam : The fact that you were a practicing pervert at the age of 5 has nothing to do with the rest of the world!

  • Al : I went over to check out the cheerleaders. Oh, Sam. There was one little girl who had these pommelos, man.

    Sam : Pommelos are grapefruit.

    Al : Pommel - that's my point!

  • Al : There are five stages of love. The first is denial, then the second is sex, then there's acceptance, then there's divorce... and then there's more sex, if you're lucky.

    Sam : Who wrote this textbook, you or Zsa Zsa?

  • Sam : Where the hell were you?

    Al : I was at the Laker game. It went into overtime.

    Sam : A ball game? I nearly died because you were at a ball game?

    Al : It wasn't just a ball game. It was a play-off game. At the party later, I met this dish named Martha.

    Sam : I guess I can thank God you didn't spend the night with this Martha.

    Al : Well, I did.

  • Sam : I'm running track, Al.

    Al : Oh, well look, you pump your arms and you pump your legs and drive through the tape.

    Sam : You were a runner too?

    Al : No, but it sounds good, doesn't it?

  • [about Al] 

    Sam : At last, something sexual he's NOT into.

  • Sam : Do you have to sneak up on me?

    Al : I'm sorry. What do you expect a hologram to do? Knock?

  • Al : Well, we been having some difficulty. Ziggy, he's, uh, going through mood swings. I think we need get a girl computer put it right next to him, one with a nice set of *hard* disks.

    Sam : You would.

  • Sam : [after Sam's leaped into a man about to die in the electric chair]  Oh God!
