Guest Cast Notes:
"You’re not David!!!"
When they are eating supper and Sam only has tooth paste and grapes to eat and Vanessa has a whole bunch of food she found herself.
"Oh go ahead you can just babble on as much as you want, you can even drool, but I know you’re not crazy."
"Actually it’s not so bad."
"Yeah if you’re a seal."
"Look the Japanese practically live off this stuff."
"Yeah well my poodle eats the grass off my daddy’s pooling device, but you don’t see me out there griming."
"I’m sorry, it’s not cherry’s jubilee but it’s the we’ve got so if you wouldn’t mind I’m gonna keep you alive so just sit there, shut up and eat some of this.
"Oh Sam these are busy bunnies they have six kids by the time they get picked up in 1965."
I think this one is really great. It is even better than The Blue Lagoon and Robinson Crusoe combined. This one is one of the greatest, but so is every Quantum Leap episode.
