The Play's The Thing: It had some sweet moments, but the entire concept just seemed stupid. Jane is a grown woman who can make her own decisions about where she lives, who she has a relationship with, and what she does for a career. She can just tell her son to mind his own business and everything is done. So the whole purpose of the leap (to help Jane reach her dream and keep the relationship in tact) seemed a bit low on the importance scale in my opinion.

The subplot about trying to get the leapee's acting career of the ground was also stupid - if the actual person can't act well enough to get noticed, why should Sam (who is not an actor) be any better?

The saving grace in this episode is that it's very funny - especially from Al.
