"Quantum Leap"

The Pilot Episode (A.K.A. "Genesis")

Parts I and II

I knew how it was going to end when I took Brenda into the file room . . . but I still took her.
-- Al, "Genesis"

But you hate dancing.
Maybe I never had the right incentive.
-- Peg and Sam, "Genesis"

I'm in a real identity crisis here, Al!
-- Sam, "Genesis"

You know, maybe this quantum leaping isn't such a bad deal after all.  Getting a chance to put things right, to make the world a better place - who knows what I can accomplish before I'm done.
-- Sam Beckett, "Genesis"

It's bad enough that I have to give Dick & Jane explanations to the President- now I have to give them to you, too.
-- Al to the very swiss-cheesed Sam, "Genesis"

Ain't that a kick in the butt!
-- Al, "Genesis"

No wonder they're in the basement, they have all the enthusiasm of a $10 hooker.
-- Al, "Genesis"

Okay, it's not a dream. It's a nightmare. And if it's a nightmare, sooner or later, there's going to be a b**gieman.
-- Sam, "Genesis"

I'm stuck in '56 with a brain like swiss-cheese and YOU'RE having technical difficulties'!
-- Sam, "Genesis"

You're part of a time travel experiment that went a little ca-ca.
-- Al, "Genesis"

Please God, I'd like to wake up now.
-- Sam, “Genesis”

When it comes to quantum physics, you're still a mental slug.
-- Al, "Genesis"

You're best bet is stop moving until all electrical activity in the brain ceases.
That's called "death."
--Al and Sam, "Genesis"

~Sam: You know my name!
Al: I'm not that wasted. "Genesis"

~Sam and Al first meet.
Sam: Who are you?

Al: My name is Albert... Albert what, I can't tell you because it's restricted. Most of what you'll want to know is restricted, so it would be a lot easier if you don't ask a lot of questions.

Sam: What are you?

Al: That's a question, Sam.
