Sam Trivia:

This is the second time that Sam mentions his younger sister, Katie, the first being in Genesis. We learn that Katie married a guy named "Chuck" at the age of 17 (which would have been 1974-75 since it is established in The Leap Home that Katie was born in 1957). As we learned in Genesis, her second marriage was to Jim Bonnick, though it is unclear how many years later this marriage took place. Katie's marriage to Chuck is mentioned again in The Leap Home, when Sam attempts to dissuade her from dating him in the future. Source

Miscellaneous Trivia:  

What helped me determine the basic location in California was the number 10525 on the curb across the street when Bob drives up and Sam is on the front lawn, the style of the houses as the camera pans around, and the fact that Cheryl said Cam had not been any farther than the Pomona Hospital.


Diamond Farnsworth performed the stunt where Sam jumps out of the way of Bob's car.


This was the third episode actually produced. It is shown out of production order in the original run.

Best Scene:

When Sam walks down the hallway and hears Cam’s mother calling him. He peeps in the cracked doorway to see a woman in the kitchen with a plastic bowl shaped contraption on her head with her hair sticking out through holes covered in foil. She wants to know what the latest issue of Playboy is doing behind his hamper. 

Sam says & chuckles, “An old Playboy magazine.” 

Janie says, “Old! Miss May looks pretty fresh to me. Rosa found that wedged behind your hamper. She had a conniption fit. She started crossing herself and started yammering in Spanish, it sounded worse than Shooter choking on a fur ball!” 

Sam says, “Sorry." 

Janie says, “That’s four cleaning ladies since October! This one quits Mister, and you’re grounded for a year!” 

Sam starts to leave and Janie wants to know where he’s going and he says to his room. But you know moms … she wants her kiss first! Sam walks back over to her a shyly kisses her on the cheek. When he does this she notices the torn pocket on his shirt, makes a face, and says his name. All Sam can do is tilt his head and shrug his shoulders.







Say What?

Sam looks in the car mirror and just shows his top teeth while the mirror image shows top and bottom teeth.


Do Cam's braces leap with him to the waiting room since they are attached to his body?

 

There is a slight difference in the clip-on sunglasses of Sam and mirror image of leapee at initial leap.

 

Before the last race starts Sam’s glasses are hooked in t-shirt collar and Sam grabs them. He leans over to open the car door for Jill and they are still hooked on his t-shirt collar.


Nitrous Oxide does not make a person speak in a higher pitch... helium does.

Sam walks in the front door for the first time and in the living room the TV is playing “Leave It To Beaver." The show first aired Nov 19, 1960. It’s called “Eddie’s Double-Cross”. Oct ’59 – Sept ’62 the show aired on ABC, Saturdays at 8:30pm. Sam leaped in on a Tuesday.





Quotable Quotes: 

Look what I picked up this morning.
The girl or the car?
Both.
-- Al and Sam, "Camikazi Kid"

Ohh, Tina would look good without that on.
-- Al (spying on a bridal shower), "Camikazi Kid"

When you're finished, I'll be back with your dessert.
Just put a cherry on top of your head.
-- Rollerskating waitress and Al, "Camikazi Kid"

Oh man, that looks good.
Want a bite?  Oh, sorry, you're a hologram.
-- Al and Sam (eating a hamburger), "Camikazi Kid" 


Sam remembers when his sister Katie first got married when she was 17 and she probably wanted to get away from the farm. Her husband, Sam says, “He drank a lot and when he got drunk…” Al says, “I’m sorry Sam.” Sam says, “She was my sister, SHE IS MY SISTER… Maybe I could have helped her and saved her from a lot of pain.” Al says, “Yeah but, it wasn’t your fault.”





Sam's Best Line:

Sam says, "Al, AL! What year is it?”  Al says, "1961.” Sam says, “Great! The tail end of the most immature period in history. All the guys still drink malts, drive hot rods and wear butch wax in their hair. And the girls, all have pillow fights, chat on the phone, blind dates and get their panties raided.” Al says, “Ah… those were the good ol’ days.”  




 

Al's Best Line:

Al says, “Oh, Tina would look good without that on.” 

Sam says, “Al.” 

Al says, “Oh Hi Sam. Oh you missed all the fun! Check out this black number from Fredrick’s of Hollywood box.”

Sam says, “I WILL NOT! Check that out. What are you doing here?” 

Al says, “I’m confirming that Ziggy’s data retrieval circuits are fully functional.” 

Sam says, “What?” 

Al says, “Well you see, he predicted Cheryl’s lingerie party would start at precisely 2:07 PDT. He was eight seconds off!” 

Sam says, “Al, you didn’t stand in here and watch Cheryl try on all this… stuff on.” 

Al says, “Well you know… ah… ah if you’re goanna publish you gotta have data.” 

Sam says, “What are you going to publish a lingerie catalogue?” 

Al says, “That’s a good idea Sam, I could do some inside research, if you get my drift.” 

Sam says, “Yeah I get your drift. What else you here for?” 

Al says, “Nothing.” 

Sam says, “Nothing?” 

Al says, “Nothing, I thought lingerie was enough.”  





Synopsis & Review:


Sam leaps into Cam Wilson while competing in a drag race against another teenager. After the race, Sam drives to a local takeaway to order lunch, where he is harassed by a group of bullies known as the Impalas, with members like Pencil. Moments later, Cam's older sister, Cheryl Wilson, arrives with her fiancé, Bob Thompson, a close friend of the Impalas. Cheryl excitedly announces to Sam that she and Bob have been accepted into the Peace Corps and are preparing to travel to Tonga after their wedding. Meanwhile, the Impalas have now begun bullying a young tomboy named Jill. They steal her purse and begin throwing it around to one another. Sam intervenes by grabbing the purse and handing it back to Jill. Embarrassed, Jill tearfully flees the scene, while Cheryl goes after her to offer comfort. Cheryl tells Jill that the Impalas are merely insecure juveniles. Jill says she would never date any of them, though she would date Cam. Cheryl says she will pass on the news, despite Jill's opposition.

Cheryl and Bob leave, while the Impalas gather around Sam to administer punishment upon him. They pin him down, strip off his clothes, carry him to a garbage bin and hurl him inside. Jill witnesses Sam attempting to climb out of the garbage bin, naked, and gathers his clothes to give back to him. She is flattered that Sam was punished for standing up for her.

Now clothed again, Sam proceeds to eat his takeaway lunch while Al tells him about his mission. He explains that, though Cheryl and Bob appear to be a happy couple, Bob is in fact a mean-spirited drunk, who regularly beats Cheryl. After they got married, Bob never lived up to his promise of joining the Peace Corps, and Cheryl never got to see the world like she wanted to.

Sam suddenly remembers that his own sister, Katie, married at the age of 17 to a young man who was also an abusive alcoholic, and that, like Cheryl, she never told anyone or left him because she was ashamed and scared. Disturbed by the memory of his sister's painful circumstances, Sam is determined to prevent Cheryl from suffering the same fate.

Back at home, Sam notices that Cheryl is jittery about the big changes in her life: her marriage, college graduation, leaving home and joining the Peace Corps. He encourages her to delay the wedding until after the Peace Corps, but she says Bob won't go unless they get married beforehand. Sam advises her that maybe Bob is the wrong man for her, stating that he has a drinking problem. Cheryl defends Bob and is upset at Sam for criticizing him.

The next day, Cheryl is trying-on Bob's mother's wedding dress and becomes flustered with wedding preparations. The knot at the back of the dress becomes entangled and, while helping her fix it, Sam notices bruises on the back of Cheryl's neck. Sam demands that she admit that Bob caused them, but she runs off, telling Sam to drop the matter. Bob arrives to visit Cheryl, carrying flowers. Sam confronts him over Cheryl's bruises. Bob professes ignorance, and Sam responds by grabbing Bob's neck and demonstrating how such bruises are usually inflicted on a person. Bob becomes angry and throws the flowers he is holding in Sam's face, then storms off.

That evening, Sam attends Cheryl and Bob's wedding rehearsal. Bob's father, Chuck Thompson, a used car salesman, shows up, visibly drunk and boasting about a recent car sale. Sam tries to warn Cheryl that Bob will become the same way, but Cheryl ignores him. Later, during dinner, Sam is seated at the children's table. Bob announces to the audience his wedding gift to Cheryl: a color TV set. Sam stands up to make a speech. He praises Cheryl for having the courage to join the Peace Corps and help the less fortunate while jokingly thanking Bob for the TV, since he and Cheryl will be in Tonga and will be forced to leave the TV set behind.

Al arrives and congratulates Sam on his speech. He asks Sam about his progress in stopping the marriage. Sam says Cheryl won't listen to him because she perceives him as a dorky kid. One of the Impalas notices Sam talking to thin air and throws food in his face. Sam tells Al they should continue their conversation in a more private setting. The two retreat to the bathroom, where a young Michael Jackson briefly enters, and Sam shows him a few of Jackson's famous dance moves. Meanwhile, Bob and his father loudly approach the bathroom. Sam hides in one of the stalls and overhears Bob's father telling Bob that he has just made him a partner in his Used Car business and has bought him a house as a wedding gift. Bob asks his father to keep the news a secret, as Cheryl will be upset when she finds out he is taking the house and his father's job offer and has no intention of joining the Peace Corps. Bob's father recommends that getting Cheryl pregnant after the wedding will further stall her ambitions and force her to stay home.

Sam reports the details of the conversation to Cheryl, who angrily confronts Bob about the matter. Bob tells her he is going to reject his dad's offer after the wedding. Sam accuses Bob of lying, and Bob lashes out at him. Cheryl tells him to stop or she will cancel the wedding. Al advises Sam to challenge Bob to a drag race, the winner of which will inherit the other's car. Sam does so, and the Impalas burst out into laughter. Bob accepts the challenge and mockingly tells Sam to meet him at the underpass the next day.

Sam questions Al's recommendation, and Al explains that, if Sam wins the race, Bob will explode in anger and reveal his true, violent nature to everyone, and convince Cheryl to finally break up with him. Sam agrees that it is a good idea, however, the further problem is that Bob has the fastest car on the boulevard. Al tells Sam to inject the car with nitrous oxide, which will give the car enough short-term speed to win the race against Bob.

The next day, Jill helps Sam install the nitrous oxide tank into the car's intake manifold, hooked up to a triggering mechanism at the front of the car. Sam arrives for the race against Bob, with Cheryl, Jill, and the Impalas as spectators. Bob and the Impalas tell Sam to prepare to lose his car. The race gets underway and Bob races ahead of Sam. Al appears next to Sam and advises him to wait until the last minute before triggering the nitrous oxide. As he does so, Sam's car surges ahead and overtakes Bob, comfortably winning the race. Sam gets out of the car, cheered by Cheryl and Jill, while the Impalas groan in defeat. Bob, angry and embarrassed, slams his foot on the accelerator and attempts to run Sam down. Sam quickly dives out of the way, and Bob crashes into a pillar. With the car wrecked, Bob angrily gets out of the car and throws the car keys at Sam. Cheryl, horrified and angered that Bob attempted to kill her little brother, removes her engagement ring and dumps Bob. Bob grabs Cheryl by the arm and tells her she isn't leaving him, attempting to slap her. Sam rushes over, punching Bob in the face, and tells him to stay away from Cheryl. Bob instructs the Impalas to take Sam out. The Impalas refuse, disgusted by Bob's violent actions and deeming them inexcusable. Everyone leaves Bob by himself, while Jill throws Bob's pink slip to the ground, allowing him to keep his now-wrecked car.

Later, Sam sees Cheryl off at the airport as she prepares to leave for Tonga on her Peace Corps mission alone. Sam wishes her well, and Cheryl tells him she has a surprise waiting for him in the courtyard. Sam goes out to see what it is: Jill is awaiting him, having shed her tomboy image, and gotten dolled up in dress and make up. Sam discovers that Jill has never kissed anyone before and, with Al's advice, awards Jill with her first kiss, before leaping... Source


 

Personal Review by Carol <aka> C_DEAN n C_AL:


This is a fun and exciting episode! I especially like the racing scenes and the little dance number Sam does in the men's room with the little boy.
