Default People you would like to see Sam leap into?

He never was an Asian or Native American person that would have been those would have been good plotlines.I actually would have liked him to be a black rapper in the 80s.It would have been funny seeing him wear a big ol' gold chain and a Kangol hat.

A hockey player would have been good too.

I will post the plotlines later.

He did leap into a Native American. In the episode "Freedeom" he leaps into George Washakie, a member of the Shoshone tribe.

I actually did a rodette vision with MJ on this very subject, and we came up with a long list of Leapees Sam hadn't yet visited.

Perhaps we can dig it out of the archives and make a thread, and who knows, some of them might even get written!

my best friend and I talk all the time about how Sam should have leaped into an Asian. I would have also liked to see him leap into a figure skater which is why I have a fanfic started where he does.

Default Correction

Actually, having found the article I referred to above, it was a slightly different spin on the question. Instead of nationalities or types of people, it was actually specifically pitched to jobs Sam hadn't tackled, but at the end of the day it is all interesting, and good inspiration for us writers.

As for nationalities - shameless plugosity leads me to point readers to my story "Run for their Lives" over at fanfiction.net. This is no 3 in my five story arc (no 5 is still being written) and has Sam leaping into an Irish Nanny, and taking on her accent.

I thought of a plotline he leaps into a skinny guy on a bowling team.Sam has to save his teammate from a heart attack.The guy is obese,smokes,eats junk,drinks,etc. but he's a good jolly guy so Sam has to prevent this guy from doing these things so he doesn't drop dead at the league championship.

Then I have one where he leaps into a cheerleader the poms poms and the short skirts would be hilarious.Sam has to prevent his/her best friend from eloping from the abusive boyfriend.

Then there is one where he plays an Asian college student who works for his family store but it is being terrozied by gang members.He has to prevent one of his family members from being killed by a gang robbery.Sam knows karate but he's overmatched by these game members so he gets beat up and ends up in the hospital.So he has to escape the hospital to save his family.

Again, I have written Sam as an Asian in my series over at www.fanfiction.net, in that he leaps into a Japanese teenager in number 4 "Snake in the Grass". Not an easy read this one, and definitely for the over 18's only.

The bowling guy one sounds a lot like Heart of a Chamption which is the one episode I could not stand to watch its so dumb and desease stuff freaks me out. No offense to your storyline though, I am sure you have done a great job.

As for my Figure skater leap, I am not going to tell the plot line, you will have to ask me to if you can have a little sneak peak if you want to at least have an idea.

So, Scottish, Irish, it's all the same to him! Teehee. That's my excuse for it anyway. Just put it down to dramatic licence.

(Seriously, I wondered how long it would take somebody to spot that one!)

i d like to see him leap into an austronaut trie to change a tragic disaster like the explosion of the spaceship colubia in 2001.
i also love to see him leap in to a passenger of a flight who in the original history the flight went down after a terrible accident.
and end it would be interested if he leapt in to an actor who playes the serial killer in the movies,and in real life he has to stop a real serial killer who suddenly appears and starts killing people..and i imagine in the last scene of the show sam is hunting down by this killer with his girlfriend, they both traped in the cabin house and al tries to help him.and they hide in a room and the killer breaks the door he walks in,,,the police arrives outside the cabin the woman screams heeeeeeeeeelp.sam cant fight the killer, he tries to kill him, the police steps in the room sam yells nooooooooo the police shoot and sam leaps and he is BACK HOME and he sees donna and then sammi jo and His buddy al and they are all happy,and THATS THE END OF QUANTUM LEAP.If only it ended that way LOL.ok dont shoot it was only just a thought hehe

Hey, SBF, that's not nice, teasing me with my favorite sport of all time, you know!!! I wanna know now!!! Please tell me, by PM or e-mail, I can't stand not to know!!!

Just by the way, I've been taking adult figure skating courses for a few years now, so I'll know what you're talking about! Somehow, it makes me think about the tragic story of Ekaterine Gordeiva (I hope I didn't misspell her name!) and her husband, who died in the middle of a practice.

Well, I'll be waiting for you to contact me!

And as for the leaps, an astronaut would be pretty funny, except of course if it's trying to prevent a tragedy... Sam in Space... inetresting...

See you later!

Clara

Let's see... I'm trying to think of some interesting ones that I haven't seen/read before.

-President
-Ballerina
-Plumber (complete with the too-low pants that expose too much! )
-Ghost (I don't know how this could be done, but I remember Scott mentioning this as an idea the writers were thinking about. It sounds like fun.)

How about Sam as a NY fireman on September 10th, 2001? I know it could be touchy, but no more so than some of his Leaps were. After all, Sam is a hero, and I would love to see if he runs in or warns people out or what.

That wouldn't work I dont think because Sams present is way before 9-11 and even though Al and the others are still on the project through 9-11 Sam would not know about it as he is not there to witness it.

Unfortunately, I can't remember. That's the price of watching so many interviews, I guess; after awhile, they all blend together! I remember him saying it, though. It wasn't a major discussion point, just an offhand remark. It stuck in my mind because I thought it would've been a cool episode.
