This is probably the first episode where Sam's mind merges with that of his host. I'm not surprised, therefore, that in Shock Theatre after Sam gets the shock therapy, Jimmy's persona is one that Sam takes on and the one that sticks the longest. It's also not surprising that Frank and Jimmy are two people who stick out in Sam's mind in Mirror Image (since that leap is entirely in his mind).

It's interesting though, that when Sam leaps into Jimmy for the second time, that he doesn't have any problems showing up from the mind merging. I have to agree, this time around, enough time had past for Jimmy to be accepted, which meant they were less likely to expect him to fail, and so he wasn't failing, and therefore, it wasn't coming out in Sam either...
