Quantum Leap

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

Revealing mistake: Tom/Sam's wife and her reflection on the mirror do not match. The reflection moves her head, but the real person does not do that. (00:06:40)


The Americanization of Machiko - August 4, 1953 - S2-E3

Revealing mistake: When Sam is first looking at his reflection of himself in the glass at the beginning of the episode, the items behind his reflection do not match his point of view. A man walks through the shot and never leaves the frame, however is gone when the shot flips back to Sam.

Future Boy - October 6, 1957 - S3-E13

Revealing mistake: Just after Mrs. Stiner delivers the line "My car's out front" after her father's hearing, everyone except Al rushes away from the broken window. Sam brushes up against Al's shirt sleeve, causing it to move. Al, being a hologram, shouldn't have been touched. (00:41:50)

Jimmy - October 14, 1964 - S2-E8

Revealing mistake: When Sam is helping Frank clean his truck, an old couple passes as they are talking. Watch the shadows on the left side of the frame right before they enter. The shadows pause for a second, and then the couple walks on screen as they are being cued by the director.
