Quantum Leap (1989)

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

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.

M.I.A. - April 1, 1969 - S2-E22

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.

Another Mother - September 30, 1981 - S2-E13

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.

Blind Faith - February 6, 1964 - S2-E5

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.
