thinks that they are so beautiful. So Sam decides to make Al jealous by flirting with the
twins. This way Sam can torture Al for once.
"Forgot where you live?"

in you or what." Sam: "Maybe."

me." Sam: "Yes, and its working."

shes my connection to 50% off on Armani suits."
Sam: "See he doesnt even know who
you are." Detective Ward: "But you do."
Laura: "I think Id like to hear
that from a real doctor." Sam: "While I am."
This episode is very good. I think that Scott Bakula did an excellent job on his first
directing episode. The episode includes things that were important or came out in the
80s, keeping it very close to the right time period. It is great how the writers tie
in other Quantum Leap episodes into this episode.
