Quantum Leap

Mirror Image - August 8, 1953 - S5-E22

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)

Continuity mistake: In the Japanese bar, when Sam takes a drink from the beer bottle, the label is facing him. When Oswald (who is Sam's reflection in the mirror) takes the same drink, the label has rotated several degrees and is facing outward, away from him. (00:28:15)

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.
