All Americans - November 6, 1962 - S2-E14

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.

Her Charm - September 26, 1973 - S2-E15

Trivia: The beginning sequence with the gunfire was shot on the Universal Studios back lot. This same set was better seen in the television show Desperate Housewives. In that show it's known as Wisteria Lane. It is actually Colonial Street and has been used by Universal for over 60 years.

Leaping of the Shrew - September 27, 1956 - S5-E3

Question: Shortly after Sam throws some items off the life raft, Al appears and tells him that because of what Sam had done, neither he nor Vanessa would be saved for quite a while. If Sam had not done anything, both of them would have been rescued within an hour. I might be wrong about this next part so further verification will help. Al also said that because of Sam throwing stuff into the ocean, that somehow, instead if only being stranded in the lifeboat for a few minutes, four whole hours have passed. How could tossing anything into the ocean have made time move so rapidly?

The Leap Between The States - September 20, 1862 - S5-E20

Question: Is this the only episode where Sam leaps to a time outside the 20th century?

Chosen answer: Yes. He can only leap within his own lifetime (per the 'rules' of quantum time travel). This episode was an exception, as an anamoly allowed him to make the jump into the life of a distant, but genetic, relative.

Reformed Dispatcher

Show generally

Question: Has it ever been stated in an episode how long it takes Sam to leap from one person to another? It seems instantaneous from the viewer's point of view, but Al is nearly always present at the point where Sam leaps out, and appears quite early in the following episode wearing completely different clothes.

Chosen answer: It's suggested that it can be a substantial period of time, as much as several weeks, although it varies dramatically.
