And no, swiss-cheese memory doesn't work here. Even though Al had leaped once after the Peoria episode, Sam clearly explained that your pre-leap memory would return in time.

There's at least 1-3 mistakes in the Dr. Ruth episode. The one scene where Al and Sam are first talking in the hallway. Al states the wrong year (1984, not 1985 which was right). Also, Sam getting mad at Al b/c he wasn't present when Annie first called and not knowing who she was. But Al had already clearly left Sam and Sam seemed pretty aware of it when he left (I believe using the imaging chamber door). Yet when Al comes back a little later, Sam seems to not remember Al leaving only a few minutes earlier. These were clearly writing errors, but the editor should've caught them.

Name some other ones you guys may have caught. I think there were maybe more, but I can't remember them right now.
I expect when Al said he thought he was going to leap, that he wasn't sure what was actually happening and was simply joking with Sam. It was mere coincidence that it actually looked very similar to leaping.

As for the Dr Ruth mistakes, Al didn't say the wrong year, he stated that in 1984 there were however many thousand Annies living in that area. I expect that's the year that the census was taken.
