I have a general question about this episode - or more about the American education system :-)
The leap date of this episode is in November 69, which makes Sam 16 years old and in High School, thinking about which college he should choose. What I would like to know is: when will he graduate from high school and when will college start after that? Or, in other words: how many month in school has he left and how long till he starts attending college?
Here in Germany, school usually ends around June, and college or university starts in september or october. Is that the same in the US?

Oh, and I really love this episode, it's one of my favourites :-)

Vicky

Most colleges start in late August here (though there are some that start a little later, in early September). Sam was applying for the next fall semester, so starting August or early September 1970. He would've just turned 17 at the time he started college.

Ah but that would be a paradox, how could something that hadn't happened to him influence something that hasn't happened yet?

Sort of, yes.

I wouldn't let her hear you say that.

Step 1: Go to your room and sit down at the desk.
Step 2: Take out pen and paper.
Step 3: Write, "Note to self: Whatever you do, don't step into the accelerator."
Step 4: Leap home.

We are lead to believe that in normal circumstances, the Leapee remembers doing some of the things Sam did once they return. So what does young Sam remember? Does he remember trying to convince people he's from the future?

Ziggy is a lot more specific than usual about what the consequences will be of Sam's mission. How could she possible know what will happen if Sam's team wins the game

A very moving episode. Though Sam is being quite selfish, trying to change his history when he wouldn't do the same for Al. My favorite part is the front porch scene. The first time I saw this episode was the first time I'd heard Imagine . Hooked me on that song right away. I especially liked when Al chimed in for that one verse. Olivia Burnette did an amazing job acting that scene.

My only gripe is that maybe Scott should have tried to deepen his voice a little when playing John, since John smoked a carton a week. John and Sam sounded just alike.

I rate this episode Excellent.
