Quantum Leap

The Leap Home (1) - November 25, 1969 - S3-E1

Factual error: The Post Raisin Bran cereal box sitting on the Beckett family breakfast table in 1969 has a 1990s box design.

All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

Audio problem: During the speech where Al tells Sam to quit (to force Chewie to play), Sam says he can't quit but his mouth doesn't move for a couple seconds after the words start playing.

Good Night, Dear Heart - November 9, 1957 - S2-E17

Factual error: At the end, Sam reads a poem from a Mark Twain book and says, "Twain wrote it when his daughter died." But the poem, famous because it was engraved on the daughter's headstone, isn't by Twain, but by poet Robert Richardson. Twain never claimed authorship, so Sam couldn't be reading it with Twain's byline from any of his books.

Genesis (1) - September 13, 1956 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: The shaving cream smeared on Sam's face looks nothing at all like the cream on his reflection's (Tom's) face in the mirror.

Catch A Falling Star - May 21, 1979 - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: As Sam is preparing to go on stage as Don Quixote, after catching the lead actor, a quick cut to Dulcinea dancing is shown. It is supposed to be Sam's love interest and ex piano teacher Nicole as Dulcinea. However, you can see Nicole standing in the background, in the pink outfit she was wearing in scenes from the beginning of the episode.

Genesis (1) - September 13, 1956 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Al is standing next to the juke box, Sam walks over to make a selection, and when Al starts talking his reflection is visible on the glass. Later in this episode, Sam is talking to Al at the sink of the dressing room at the ball park. As Sam looks into the mirror he says he thinks Al is a vampire, to which Al replies, "Neurological holograms don't reflect, Sam."

Disco Inferno - April 1, 1976 - S2-E2

Factual error: In this episode that takes place in April of 1976, everyone sits around watching an episode of Saturday Night Live with Bill Murray on it. Murray didn't join the cast until 1977.

How the Tess Was Won - August 5, 1956 - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Though he's leaped into someone else, we always see Sam as Sam, dressed in all the host's clothes (including glasses or sunglasses). His host is revealed only in reflections. But here, when he looks at his host-self in the mirror, the hat and clothes are all identical - except that the reflection is wearing glasses, and Sam isn't.

8 1/2 Months - November 15, 1955 - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: Willis drops his cap on the road when he runs away. It's still there in the long shot of him running, but after the commercial break we return to the same scene, and as Sam stands up, the cap is no longer on the road behind him.

Sea Bride - June 3, 1954 - S2-E21

Audio problem: When the little girl is dragging her sister across the room to get her to meet Sam at the pool, she says, "He's waiting at the pool for you," but her mouth doesn't even come close to mouthing those words.

Leaping in Without a Net - November 18, 1958 - S2-E19

Audio problem: In the beginning of the show, when Sam's father tells him to get down, Sam climbs down and falls off the net. When he hits the dirt it makes a sound like he's hitting a board.

Her Charm - September 26, 1973 - S2-E15

Continuity mistake: After throwing the laundry bags out the back of the truck, close up shots on Sam and the girl show the back of the truck being relatively empty. However, the next shot from the rear of the truck has the back full of laundry bags again.

Another Mother - September 30, 1981 - S2-E13

Revealing mistake: When Sam and Al are in the station wagon pursuing the van, both Sam and Al's reflections are visible on the wagon's front hood. Al, as a hologram, shouldn't have one and Sam's reflection should be as Kevin's mom.

Nowhere to Run - August 10, 1968 - S5-E4

Factual error: Twice in this episode, characters refer to the Vietnam war being over. But the setting is 1968. The Vietnam war didn't end until 1975.

Catch A Falling Star - May 21, 1979 - S2-E10

Character mistake: In the preview for this episode, Charlie has trouble getting his countdown straight. He shouts that Sam is on in 50 seconds, then 47, then 48. In the episode itself, the mistake is corrected with a rather obvious overdub, changing the final number to 43.

The Color of Truth - August 8, 1955 - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Sam leaves the jail after the Sheriff has released him from custody, we can see Sam's reflection, not Jesse Tyler's, in the window on the door as it swings shut behind Sam.

Genesis (1) - September 13, 1956 - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the shower, the Burma Shave cream on Sam's face changes from being partially washed off to being thick and foamy, then back to partially washed off.

Star-Crossed - June 15, 1972 - S1-E3

Revealing mistake: Sam stares at himself in the mirror and takes out his wallet to determine who he's leaped into. But the "reflection" in the mirror lowers the wallet and looks back up before Sam does.
