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." (00:26:00 - 01:15:30)
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. (00:41:55)
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. (00:48:00)Jean G
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.Joel Amos Gordon
Continuity mistake: When Sam and Ruben are fighting in the locker room they knock over a set of lockers (and only one set) and the door flies open on it. When they roll over the set of lockers the camera cuts and 2 sets of lockers are suddenly knocked down with all locker doors closed.Joel Amos Gordon
Continuity mistake: In the fight between Sam and Ruben in the locker room, Ruben has a white visor in his hands during the fight which magically disappears during the fight after a camera cut, and Ruben leaves after the coach breaks up the fight, without the visor.Joel Amos Gordon
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. (00:43:00)Jean G
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. (00:35:10)Jean G
Continuity mistake: When Sam tells Al the bartender that he knows another Al who uses the term "caca," Al leans over toward him to say, "Common expression." The camera angle reverses, and Al is abruptly not leaning any more, but standing back from the bar in his earlier position. (00:16:25)Jean G
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.
