Additional info provide by: Brian Greene


It's the 70's and Sam is in the middle of disco, mood rings, and everything he hates the most. His name is Chad and his new little brother will die sometime soon but Ziggy is broken. He has tagged extra zeros onto everyones paychecks, so employees of the project all went out on vacation and Al can't help with details.

Chris, Chad's younger brother, is an aspiring stuntman like his older brother and father, but seems to have more of an aptitude for playing the guitar and singing. Sam must prevent the death of Chris and help him on his career path that may not satisfy their father's wishes.

Synopsis & Review:

Sam leaps in while on the dance floor of a disco. A hitman enters the club and pulls a gun out, shooting Sam in the chest. Sam is flung backward through a glass wall and lands on a safety pad. At that moment, a voice yells "cut," and Sam realizes that he was not shot, but rather, flung backward via cables attached to his body. His name is Chad Stone, a stuntman working on the film set of a low-budget movie called "Disco Inferno", along with his counterpart's younger brother, Chris (played by Kris Kamm), and father, the stunt coordinator, Ray Stone (Michael Greene).

Ray is annoyed that the safety pad was moved, endangering his son's life, and blames Chris for the failure. Rick, the director (Peter Onorati) tells them to move along so he can film the next scene. Still, Ray is angered by Rick's indifference to safety procedures and announces his resignation, bringing his two boys with him. Rick tells Chris that the fire stunt on the film in two days is his big opportunity and tries to get him to stay, but Chris defers to his father's judgment and leaves.

While walking around the set, Sam meets Traci DeVine (Arnetia Walker), a black music producer handling the film's soundtrack. Traci gives him her business card and a mood ring, which reveals Sam's distress. Chris, meanwhile, meets a young, attractive college girl named Shannon. Though Chris tells her most girls normally go for his older brother, Shannon says she isn't like most girls and instead holds a clear interest in Chris.

Sam finds Al having fun on the dance floor, and the two talk about his mission. Sam is mortified to have leaped into the seventies, a decade he finds intolerable, while Al admits that the seventies were among the best years of his life. Sam wants to accomplish his mission as soon as possible so he can leap. Al tells him that Ziggy's computer systems have crashed; however, he has one bit of data: Chris will die sometime in the next two days, though the cause, time, and place of his death are unknown.

While Sam is contemplating the notion of playing the role of big brother to Chris, he suddenly remembers that he too, has a big brother named Tom. But besides the name, Sam cannot remember anything else about him. He asks Al for information, but Al reminds Sam that it is against the rules for him to give Sam personal data concerning his own life.

As Sam, Chris, and Ray leave the set, Chris is in a bad mood. His father's decision to quit the film means he is denied the opportunity to perform the upcoming fire stunt in the movie and thus earn his stuntman's card. Ray suggests that Chris take Sam's upcoming movie stunt on the "Earthquake" film Earthquake, scheduled for the following day. However, Sam, aware of Chris' impending fate, says no.

Chris is angered with Sam and refuses to speak with him. Sam is reminded that he, too, would get mad when he felt his older brother, Tom, was bossing him around and realizes that it is simply one of the responsibilities of being a big brother.

Sam overhears Chris playing guitar in his room and realizes he has musical talent. Remembering how Tom convinced him to go to M.I.T to pursue his talent in physics, Sam tells Chris that he should follow his talents.

Shannon shows up at their home to see Chris. Chris asks Sam not to hit on her, as is Chad's usual habit, and Sam agrees. The three are watching Saturday Night Live, and during one sketch, Chevy Chase imitates President Ford and his penchant for clumsiness. Shannon says that if Ford falls over again, as he has before, he will lose the Presidency. Sam talks to her about politics and the upcoming Presidential election, and Chris becomes jealous of how he and Shannon are bonding.

Sam spots Al on the balcony and leaves Chris and Shannon alone. Al senses that Sam has a fondness for Chris. Sam tells Al that Chris reminds him of himself and his relationship with Tom. Al says he still does not have any data about Chris' death.

The next day, Sam is on the set of the movie, Earthquake about to perform a stunt in which he must fall several stories from a building. Sam is terrified and reluctant to go ahead with the stunt. One of the female stunt performers arrives just as the scene commences and nudges Sam over the edge while she jumps. Sam manages to cling to scaffolding while the other actors in the movie pretend to reach for him. Sam loses his grip and falls several stories onto a large safety mat.

Chris is jealous and angry that Sam got to perform the stunt, not him. Sam tells him that he should pursue his talent in music instead. He has contacted Tracey DeVine, who has gotten Chris a chance to play in front of a large crowd at a downtown country music club. With Sam and Shannon watching, Chris plays guitar and sings before the crowd. However, Ray believes Chris was wasting his time pursuing music and goes to the bar to get drunk. After Chris departs from the stage and goes to the bar to seek his father's approval, the two end up arguing, and Chris punches his father in the face. Upset and determined to win his father's approval, Chris contacts Rick and tells him that he is available to perform the fire stunt the following day.

Back home, Sam admits to Al that he is struggling with his task of being Chris' big brother. He says he never appreciated Tom's efforts to look out for him until it was too late. Suddenly, Sam has a haunted feeling and remembers that Tom is dead. Al nods and tells him Tom died in Vietnam.

The next day, Chris and Shannon arrive on the "Disco Inferno" movie set. Shannon is concerned and tells Chris he should wait for his father and brother to check out the stunt first. Chris responds that it is what both of them would want him to do.

Meanwhile, Sam is worried, as Chris hasn't returned home since his fight with their father. Sam forces Ray to admit that Chris has talent in music. Ray concedes, but says he doesn't believe Chris should waste his life away by pursuing it as a career. Sam contests that Chris's life will be ruined if he is forced to become a stuntman. Ray realizes that he became a stuntman only to prove to his father that he could do it. Sam realizes that Chris may similarly seek to prove himself by performing in the fire stunt, and the two race off to stop him.

Rick continues to disobey safety precautions and tells the crew they aren't going to rehearse. He tells Chris that the stunt requires him to jump over a balcony while a pot behind him explodes. However, after yelling "action," the explosion becomes an inferno and engulfs the entire balcony, including Chris. Sam and Ray arrive on the set, and Sam sets out to search for Chris in the burning rubble. Al helps guide Sam through the thick flames to find Chris, who is unconscious and pinned underneath some wood. Sam frees him and rescues him to safety.

Chris regains consciousness and tells his father that he has now earned his stuntman's card because of the stunt. As Chris is taken off by an ambulance, Ray confronts Rick and punches him in the face for incompetence, while Tracey comforts Sam, noting that his mood ring now indicates he is in a good mood.

Back at their home, several days later, Chris is recuperating with a cast on his leg and watching television with Shannon and Ray. Sam talks to Al briefly in the kitchen, revealing that he sometimes feels a little homesick and wishes he could leap home and return to his own life. Al produces a photograph of Tom and Sam together to soften some of his homesickness while Tom is dressed in his Navy Seals uniform preparing to leave for Vietnam. Sam thanks Al for sharing it with him and goes back to join the others to watch television.

Sam and Ray begin to discuss Chris's future, with Ray saying that Chris will come and work with them as a stuntman now that he has his card, while Sam suggests that Chris's future lies with his music. Ray incredulously asks if Sam knows the future. Al tells Sam that President Ford is about to trip down a flight of stairs on live television. Sam announces that if Ford trips down the stairs, it proves he knows the future and that Ray should get behind, encouraging Chris in music. Ray agrees. Right on cue, Ford trips, and Sam gives Chris the thumbs-up before leaping... Source

Personal Review by Sherdran <AKA> Eleiece:

Besides the lesson of learning to not let anyone dictate to you how to live your life and to believe in and follow your dreams, this was a fun look back at the year I graduated from high school. And one more thing ---Sam, cover your ears, darlin' --- I like disco music!

"That's the Way I Like It" by K.C. & the Sunshine Band
"Kung Fu Fighting" by Carl Douglas
"The Hustle" by Van McCoy & The Soul City Symphony

"Wildfire" cover of the Michael Murphy song
"Out of Sight" an original song for the episode

Project Trivia:
Ziggy, referred to as 'he' in this episode, is out of whack and needs fixing; example of problem - according to Al:

"He tacked extra '0's on everyone's paycheck so half the staff rushed out on vacation."

In a later scene when Sam asks about Ziggy, Al checks the handlink, doing a double take as he replies, "He's... Japanese. ... He's spitting out everything in Japanese.. Well, that's what you get for feeding him those foreign computer chips."

Sam Trivia
In the opening scene when he becomes annoyed when Al's telling him he's
got to look after Chris like a big brother, it jogs Sam's memory and he
remembers he has a big brother (Tom), and tries to get information out
of Al, without success. Later in the apartment when he's looking at a
picture of Chad and Chris as little boys, he remembers that Tom played
basketball and was, "high school varsity. All-American Indiana State
championships in 1965...no, 1964." A few minutes later, in Chris' room,
he recalls how Tom talked him into following his
talents and convinced him to go to M.I.T. which eventually led to Sam
winning a Nobel Prize.

As Sam's swiss-cheesed memory begins to fill in...he remembers his older brother tom died in Vietnam. Al shares a photo of Tom and Sam to ease the painful memory.

Sam's Outfits worn in this episode:
Scott had more costume changes than Dean did! In fact, Dean had only three different costumes for the entire episode; Scott had eight.

Sam's various costumes in order of appearance:
1 - (leap-in scene) - White polyester suit with wide lapels, patterned shirt, gold neck chains and gold (high) platform shoes.

2 - (meets Traci Devore) - The white suit pants, a dark brown and white,
narrow-stripe patterned polyester shirt and a gold neck chain with medallion. (Note, except for the safety vest and undershirt he had on under the safety vest for the 'shooting' stunt, all the shirts were long-sleeved). Traci also gives Sam her mood ring ("It's for getting in touch with your feelings.")

3 - (talking by the truck with Chris and Ray, then getting in the car with Chris) - Blue jeans, boots and jewelry, a variegated medium blue, black and white stripped shirt (remember, he had to change it after Chad's date from the night before threw a glass of water in his face), off-white boots (I'm guessing probably snake skin), and a silver watch on his left wrist.

4 - (next day on the set of 'Earthquake") - Dark brown pants, white shirt (sleeves rolled up on his forearms) and a wide, blue w/white polka-dot tie, and dark shoes, and an ill-fitting wig.

5 - (at the apartment after doing the fall) - Blue jeans, yet another blue patterned shirt, brown leather vest and boots;

6 - (at the bar when Chris sings) - Blue jeans, blue denim shirt with small flowers embroidered on the front above the pockets and on the back, brown leather belt, boots, and a silver neck chain;

7 - (scene where he goes to Ray Stone looking for Chris) Blue jeans, still another variegated blue shirt, this one a wide check pattern (the wardrobe mistress/master must have had a fixation on blue in this episode!), off-white/snakeskin boots, silver watch, and those cool black sunglasses.

8 - (last scene - at the apartment watching the basketball game) - Jeans, orange, dark blue, black and white patterned shirt, boots and a silver neck chain.

Al Trivia:
In this episode Al held a cigar three times: Once in the leap-in scene, next in the balcony scene at the apartment, and lastly in the rescue scene at the studio.

Al also sneaks up on Sam twice: the first time in the apartment during one of the times Sam is looking at the picture of Chad and Chris as kids. The second time is in the kitchen scene when Sam opens the refrigerator to get two more beers then is startled to see Al standing in front of him on the other side of the open fridge door. 

Al's outfits worn in this episode:
1 - (First scene - on the set, dancing with the extras) - Medium dark blue suit, white shirt, narrow white tie, lightning bolt pin on right lapel, black-banded watch on left wrist.

2 - (next scene - on the balcony at the apartment) - A white . "One hundred percent virgin polyester" suit with wide lapels, a black, peach & white large floral print shirt with a wide collar, a thin-linked gold neck chain (I had to look very close to determine if it was gold or silver). Though his feet aren't seen, I am assuming that Al's shoes were also white. He also wears this suit in the explosion scene at the studio; in this scene, Al also has some sort of small leather bag (a purse? *g*) hanging on his right wrist.

3 - (last scene - in the apartment during the basketball game) - Orange
shirt with narrow a 'band' neckline (no 'regular' collar), leopard-print
suspenders (I believe he also wore these in 'The Right Hand of God' in the boxing ring scene), dark pants, a silver neck chain, and a black-banded, gold-faced watch. Again, since his feet aren't seen, I'm going to assume that, in keeping with his outfit, Al's shoes were either dark (brown or black) or more likely some shade of orange to match the shirt.

Al's Women:
According to Al, "
The only thing that got me more women was my space suit."

Miscellaneous Trivia:
'Disco Inferno' is one of two episodes with a leap date of April 1st (April Fool's Day). The other episode is 'M.I.A.', set on April 1, 1969.

"'IN' things of the 1970s"
Disco Swinging singles
Est Hot tubs
Mantras Farah Fawcett
Mood rings* 8-track tapes
Edible underwear

*The colors of the mood ring mean:
Jade green - ultra intense

Black - tense, disoriented, harassed
Reddish-brown - 'you need to chug some sangria' - at least according to Traci Devore)

Brad Pitt auditioned for this episode, but as Deborah Pratt explained in a panel at The Leap Back 2009 Convention, he didn't want to be there.

Kiss With History:
In the scene where Sam does the 'little fall' and is hanging onto the beam, in the stock shot from the movie 'Earthquake' of the group of people who come running to try and rescue him, Al gets excited when he sees Lorne  Greene/Ben Cartwright [of 'Bonanza' fame].

Only 16 years old she landed a part on Broadway in "The Sign In Sidney Brustein's Window", starring Hal Linden. A few years after graduation she assumed her best known stage role in Michael Bennett's hit musical, "Dreamgirls". Arnetia holds the distinction of being the only actress credited with portraying all three dreamgirls. This lead to television guest-starring parts and her feature film breakout role as To-bel, in Paul Bartel's offbeat comedy, "Scene's From The Class Struggle In Beverly Hills. In 1991 television viewers were introduced to Arnetia when she created the role of head nurse Annie Roland for the NBC hit comedy "Nurses". True to her musical roots, Arnetia continues to sing as well as write. She's just completed her first teleplay with her husband and continues to act in film and television.

Kelli Williams as Shannon: Kelli Williams was born in California on June 8, 1970. Though she had appeared in commercials since she was a baby, she was discovered by her agent at her high school play ("Romeo and Juliet"), in which she starred as Juliet opposite General Hospital (1963)'s Steve Burton.

In the summer of 2003, her critically acclaimed seven year stint on the show ended, and she has since signed for guest spots on different series, and filmed a made-for-TV movie, A Boyfriend for Christmas (2004) opposite her real-life mother Shannon Wilcox and former TV-father-in-lawCharles Durning.

She knew that she wanted to pursue a career in the entertainment industry ever since her first on stage- tutu experience. After graduating a year early and receiving her BFA in Dance, she moved to L.A, and then found love with acting. Michelle follows her "Meraki" mantra, where she believes in doing everything with creativity, love and passion; when you put all of yourself into what you do, whatever that may be. Her passion and positive outlook on life has definitely helped her to not only advance within her career, but create a positive mindset to continue climbing up the ladder of the industry w/ all of her interests.

A fortunate turn of events landed him in a classroom with the legendary Sanford Meisner, one of the founding members of the Group Theater, and an exacting but effective teacher. Various roles in television and film followed for Kevin. Even though he loved acting, Kevin experienced something in yoga that was so compelling, he took a detour to study and eventually teach the ancient discipline of body and mind. A Lover of the arts, architecture, yoga, and eastern spirituality as well as all forms of creative expression, he has found his journey back into acting greatly enriched by the years of yoga.

Guests Who Appeared In Other episodes:
Otto Coelho (Production Assistant) was also in "All Americans."  In the beginning of the set scene where Chris gets injured, the 'gofer' --tall guy with long sideburns and wearing a blue shirt - also had a role in the 'All Americans' episode. He was the football player in the victory scene on the football field who slammed Sam on the shoulders knocking him down while yelling "ROAAAR JAGUARS!"

Say What?

Sam appears on the set of Earthquake with the footage of Sam spliced together alongside actual footage from the film. However, this sequence represents a problem: the film was released in 1974, while the episode was set in 1976. Source

This episode took place on April 1, 1976; however, in the later scene where Sam and his "brother" Chris are watching an episode of Saturday Night Live, Chris says the show is live. This episode of Saturday Night Live, including the Coneheads on Family Feud sketch, didn't air until January 21, 1978. In addition, the President Ford clip afterward is from an entirely different episode.

"That’s the Way I Like It" was released two months after the setting for this episode. "The Hustle" was released two weeks after. Also, The Village People (Sam finds an 8-track tape) released their first album a year after the setting of this episode.

The leapee in the mirror fixes his hair with his right hand, while Sam does it with his left hand.

A woman is seen falling from the skyscraper before Sam falls. When Sam falls, he breaks through the glass roof onto a safety pillow. The other woman must be dead from her fall, by all accounts!

Quotable Quotes:
Sam, wake up and smell the seventies, you're looking at genuine 100% high grade virgin polyester - the only thing that got me more women was my spacesuit.
-- Al, "Disco Inferno"

Sam, it's Ben Cartwright!  Ben Cartwright is trying to save you!
-- Al, "Disco Inferno"

This is worse than anything imaginable.
-- Sam, "Disco Inferno"

The 'Me' decade, where everybody had the morality of two dogs in the park.
-- Sam, "Disco Inferno"

You owned a man-bag?
Yea, my pants were always too tight to carry a wallet.
-- Sam and Al, "Disco Inferno"

He's spitting out everything in Japanese. That's what you get for feeding him foreign microchips.
-- Al about Ziggy, "Disco Inferno"

Disco? . . . I'd rather be dead!
-- Sam, "Disco Inferno"

Sam's best line:
"The 'me' decade, where everybody had the morality of two dogs in the park."

Al's best lines:
(On the balcony on the set with Sam during the first scene):
".with lights, camera..plenty of action." ;

(On the balcony at the apartment, describing/defending his suit): "Sam, wake up and smell the 70s! You're looking at genuine one-hundred percent, high-grade, virgin polyester. The only thing that got me more women was my space suit."

But by far and away, IMHO, Al's very best lines are in the apartment scene when Sam remembers Tom is dead and asks Al to confirm his memory:

"Yeah. He was killed in Vietnam. That was one part of your Swiss-cheesed memory was hoping you wouldn't get back."

Best lines between Sam and another character:
(The bar room scene just after Chris punched his father):

Ray Stone: "Whoa. The boy do know how to punch, doesn't he? Lucky for him that you was holding me."

Sam: Lucky for you he only threw one."

Best scene:
Between Sam and Al when Sam suddenly remembers his brother, Tom, is dead, and Al finally, somberly admits that he's right:

Sam (hesitantly) "Tom's.dead, isn't he?" .. "Al."

Al (somberly): "Yeah. He was killed in Vietnam." -- a pause-"That's one part of your Swiss-cheesed memory was hoping you wouldn't get back."
