Audio problem: Sam and Al are walking along the road when they come across the father of the baby. Sam tells Al that he's just a boy. Al replies that Sam is just a girl. Al's mouth appears to be saying "guy" or something else and the line is dubbed.
Revealing mistake: The fractal of the star stops at a point just below the top of the frame, when in reality it should keep going. This gives away that the star is superimposed over the shot. Oddly enough, when it starts snowing, the effect looks normal.
Revealing mistake: The video image over the building that Al shows Michael Blake is placed incorrectly. The edge of the effect is blatantly visible. This effect is corrected later when Blake asks to see the plaza again and the name is changed.

Trivia: Sam's childhood home is Ray and Annie's farmhouse from the movie Field of Dreams, complete with the front porch swing. In another shot showing morning on the farm, the baseball field from the film is visible. Both the television show and film were distributed by Universal Pictures, so it's likely the show had access to unused footage from the film.

Trivia: According to the script, Beth really does feel Al dance with her briefly before he leaps, even though he is a hologram. She says his name after he leaps out as an acknowledgement that she knew he was there. This is one of the few episodes we see Al leap instead of Sam.

Trivia: One of the girls mentions wanting to watch "Magnum", as in Magnum P.I. which she ends up doing. Sam replies that the show will be on for 8 more seasons. The episode takes place in 1981, and Magnum P.I. would end its run in 1988. Quantum Leap and Magnum P.I. share a creator, Donald Bellisario.

Factual error: The episode takes place in New York in February. During the scene with the Beatles arriving at the theater, we see a tree that has very green and full leaves on it. Trees with green leaves are visible in other parts of the episode as well.
