Sam says that he hasnt eaten a TV dinner since he was 11, he remembers this. Sam said he always thought a TV dinner was food from the future. Sam remembers Al telling him about, Als sister, Trudy.
Al said his 4th wife tried to "mother" him all the time; she would cut his steak for him. Thats why he wont eat meat. Als sister, Trudy, got pneumonia when they were in the orphanage and they put her in a mental hospital; he never saw her again. Al appears in this episode 10 times and uses the chamber door 3 times.
Ziggy is freaked out by Sam leaping into the same person twice. Dr. Beeks got a shock from Ziggy that sent her half way across the room. Ziggy is shocked when she learns about Alia. Al says that in over 80 leaps Sam never leapt into the same place more than once.
Frank says "Oh Boy" at the beginning instead of Sam. Zoe is the female version of Al. Junk food was not a word in the 60s.
Al has a white/gray suit on with a lavender shirt, and a blue, gray, and white diagonal stripe tie. The second outfit is a red suit jacket, black pants, and a white shirt.

"Excuse me, excuse me for a second. Are you, are you taking to a hologram? Youre talking to a hologram, arent you! You are a time traveler, too."
The best scene is when Sam touches Alia and they see each other for who they really are for the first time. Then they introduce each other to their hologram friends.
"If you werent here, who would I steal mashed potatoes from?"
"I leap back to people that I know and everything should be great, right? But everythings wrong."
"Im really strong."
"I think Ziggy has finally lost it."
"Im worried because I cant figure out what the hell is going on."
"Im also worried because Ive never really care about anyone you leapt into like I care about Jimmy."
"Its my job to be worried."
Alia: "Who are you?" Sam: "Who are you?"
"Were not sure. Sam and I touched and then suddenly he "
"Its almost like your memory was swiss cheesed."
"Do you always think of other people first?"
"Sam, Im not Connie and youre not Jimmy."
"If he touches you again, Ill kill him."
"This could be the one that gets you home."
"You bet your sweet ass I am, sweetheart."
"Because shes evil."
"Sam shes your counterpart. Youre good and shes evil, thats what she does."
"You cant kill me, youd be killing yourself, Alia. I mean think about it, I only exist because you do and you because of me. If I die, it only makes since, that you would too.
"Youre not evil, Alia. Whatever trapped you in time is."
"Somehow we, weve lost two days."
Sam: "What are you telling me; none of this ever happened?" Al: "No Im not, Ziggy is telling the both of us."
"Shes not gone, Al. Alia is not gone."
This episode is very good. It is nice to get to see how someone has changed after Sam has leapt into that person. Two years have gone by since Sam leapt into Jimmy and you see how much of a change Sam has made. Alia is an interesting character and someone you want to see Sam battle again.
