Then Sam leaps in, Al leaps back to the present day and we can all assume that when Sam did leap the guy returned to his time and place...

This never bothered me when I first saw the ep but it sure bugs me now....
If the Imaging Chamber was sealed off because of fear of radioactive fallout, it makes sense that the Waiting Room was probably sealed off too. So Tom was probably stuck in the Waiting Room in solitary confinement, until Al sent the letter that told them how to override. They probably had to hurry to look after him after that. Good thing they did too, otherwise he might have died of thirst...
