Project Trivia:
Al is not seen going into or coming out of the Imaging Chamber in this episode. There are no sounds either.

The handlink is a thin black piece of plastic with a gold strip with red and green flashing lights. It is contoured to fit Al’s hand.

Ziggy is not called a he or she in this episode.

On top of the station roof, Sam is attaching a cable to the copper gutters to get a signal for the station so it can keep broadcasting. Al thinks he’s leaping. Sam tells him he just standing too close to the antenna. In actuality, Al sees Sam leap 83 times. One of those times they leaped together, in ‘The Leap Back’ (4.1). Also in ‘Mirror Image’ (5.22) Sam asks the same question of Al. Al says he always goes back into the imaging chamber when Sam leaps.

Al says, "Hey! LOOK Sam! … I’m gonna leap?"
Sam says, "No you’re not leaping … you’re standing too close to the antenna … move away …"
Al says, "Huh?"
Sam says, "Move away … come on move away!"
Al says, "RATS!"
Sam cocks his head looking at Al and smiles, shaking his head.

He even made a cameo appearance as Sam’s mirror image in the afforementioned episode-that-must-not-be-named, which, along with writing the so-called “cursed episode” earnt him the nickname “Ruppenboogie”. As such, it is very fitting that Ruppenthal is here to boogie with us for this episode of the podcast. Please enjoy Albie’s conversation with Chris Ruppenthal…

Say What?
When Tutti Frutti is playing, the needle seems to be on the record label!

Rachel and Brian can't believe Sam is playing Pat Boone, but it's in Chicks record stack, so it must have been something the Leapee wanted to play.

Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell both reflect in various glass set pieces throughout the episode.

When Sam comes to work the next morning, he walks in the door with wet hair and by the end of the first song its dry.

Why did Chubby Checker (age 48 at the time) get cast to play his teenage self? Answer: Ratings.

When the brick comes through the window, the people on the street freeze. This is because a still frame was used at that point.

Why did a fight break out between groups of young people in the street? This was not explained.

This is the newspaper article read by Sam:
'The guns are silent now and so are many of the men whose hands once held them. Never again will they see their wives or mothers. Never again will they hear their children laugh. And never again will they smell the sweet scents of home. And for what? For what did these husbands and fathers, these brothers and sons, give their lives so many thousands of miles from home? I say it was for one word, and that word is freedom. The freedom to pray. To write. To speak. To feel. To be. As we see fit, and not as others would dictate to us. To this freedom, which has been so dearly bought for us, it is up to us, the living, to dedicate our lives and our futures... to its eternal protection.' "



Al’s Best Lines:
Sam comes in to work the next morning and is looking through a stack of 45’s for something to play.

Al pops in and says, "Buenos Días"

Sam says, "Boy! Am I glad to see you! I gotta play some music Al, I… and I don’t remember anything. What about this?"

Al says, "That’s a no." Sam is shuffling through the stack of 45’s and showing each one to Al. "That’s a no." Rachel looks on from the other room through the glass booth. With a puzzled look on her face, she cocks and shakes her head then puts it in her hands and holds it.

Al says, "Johnny Horton, The Battle of New Orleans! Sam get real!"

Sam says, "I don’t remember any music Al!"

Al says, "This is not about music, this is about talking, we got the team that makes the girls scream, about the man of the hour with the radio power, the Dr of Love, that knows … what’s the matter? … Say it out loud!"

Sam says, "We got the team that makes the girls sc …"

Al says, "You gotta get this in two minutes Sam! … You got a piece of paper… and a pencil? Get a paper and pencil. You’re going on the air!"

Sam says as he writes, "We got the tea …, a …"

Al says, "DIDN’T YOU SEE THE MOVIE?" … That was all Al had to say …

Sam goes on the air yelling, "G-O-O-D M-O-R-N-I-N-G P-E-O-R-I-A!"



Synopsis & Review:

Sam has leapt into a Disc Jockey by the name of "Howlin" Chick Howell (played by Douglas Ibold). He is still on the air, and after a long pause, and visual cues from Howell's producer and co-presenter Brian (played by Todd Merrill), reads out a commercial for a local ice-cream store and plays a Pat Boone record. His freezing on air angers his producer, the station owner, Rachel Porter (played by Patricia Richardson).

After a brief argument (as Rachel had rubbed Sam the wrong way), it looked like Rachel was going to fire him, but just told him to sign off, but warned him to not be late the next day or he would be fired. After signing off, his co-presenter, who has a shift immediately after Sam, comments on Howell having the hots for Rachel. Sam immediately dismisses the idea.

As Sam is leaving, he notices Rachel in the middle of another argument, this time with one of her advertisers, local businessman Fred Beaman (played by Richard McKenzie), who wants her to stop playing rock and roll music on her station, claiming that it promoted bad behavior in the teenagers of the neighborhood. Sam and Rachel both find this claim laughable. Sam tells Fred that it is the responsibility of the parents to promote wholesome family values and to control what their children listen to, but Fred states it is impossible to watch their children 24 hours a day and that the moment a parent's back is turned, the children do what they want.

Rachel refuses to stop playing rock and roll, so Fred pulls his advertising from the station, saying that other businesses will do the same, and states that she might still have to stop playing rock and roll, as a new bill is being proposed in local council to ban it being played on local airwaves. Sam leaves and discusses the situation with Al. Both think that such a law could never pass, but as they walk to Howell's car, it is covered in graffiti telling him to go home, showing that there is support of the proposed action.

The next day Sam arrives on time (to Rachel's shock), and with Al's help picking the rock and roll records (as Sam doesn't remember much music) and topics to discuss, gives an extremely entertaining broadcast, talking about the Russians going into Space (and that they should blast Khrushchev off with them) and an interview with a very perverted Invisible Man (Al). Meanwhile, Al recognizes a man walking past and speaking to Sam's co-presenter, as Chubby Checker, who has come to ask for his demo (The Twist) to be played. When Al tells Sam who it is, Sam is starstruck and starts dancing “The Twist”, which Chubby Checker loves and asks to use in his act. Al makes Sam tell Rachel to play the demo as it will send the station to number 1 in Peoria (which is Rachel's dream).

Later that day, he joins Rachel at the council meeting, and both are shocked to find that the law has passed, effective immediately. Rachel is devastated, as by playing rock and roll she was actually making money. She worries that without it she could lose her station and her livelihood, and Al tells Sam that this is why he leapt here, as that is exactly what happened. A comment by Rachel, saying that she needed to “raise the drawbridge and prepare for the dark ages” sparks an idea in Sam.

Sam and Rachel return to the radio station, barricade the entryways, and on the air make a public show of protest against the new law. After reading a speech of Fred Beaman's which defamed rock and roll music as “half-articulate speech of long-haired radicals”, they say that all speech is protected by the First Amendment and so they have every right to continue playing rock and roll, and that they intend to do so, immediately playing a rock and roll song. Beaman rings the station and Rachel confirms that they are perfectly serious. Beaman wants Sam and Rachel arrested, but his friend, Councilman Frank Stewart, convinces him otherwise as it could cause bad publicity for him (there is an upcoming election).

A vandal throws a brick through the window, which hits the radio unit, temporarily causing them to go off the air, but Sam is able to repair it. Beaman then has the power to the station cut. Sam is able to start a generator in the basement to restore the power, but there is only enough power generated to be able to run the radio unit, so they have to make do without any air conditioning. Beaman calls the station again, claiming that he might not return his advertising even if they do stop and that the bad publicity from the protest could drive away other business. Rachel calls the bluff, knowing that Beaman and Stewart don't want any bad publicity either, and states that when she hangs up she would call every news outlet in the state, which she does. Soon the station is surrounded by news reporters. The protest also gathers supporters who start chanting.

Rachel and Sam start to bond, and Sam puts on a favorite song of his (The Glory of Love by the Five Keys) and dances with Rachel. With things getting hot and heavy, they start to make out, but at the same time the transmission cables to the radio station are cut, stopping their airplay. Rachel thinks this was all a trick of Sam's to be alone with her, but is convinced otherwise when Sam is able to use the station's copper drainpipes to create a circuit and get back on the air once again.

A furious Beaman decides enough is enough, grabs an ax and starts chopping away at their front door. At the same time, Al tells Sam that Ziggy has found something, a newspaper article written by Beaman himself at the end of World War 2. Sam reads it out on the air, it is a touching article which thanked the fallen soldiers and stated that it was all for freedom. When Sam says “all we want is a little freedom too”, Beaman is stunned, and realizing he now doesn't have a hope, walks off in defeat. Rachel and Sam exit the station to thunderous applause, and Al tells Sam that the station goes to number 1 and that Rachel and Howell get married. Rachel tells Sam to buy her breakfast (after he finishes his shift), and with a final howl, Sam leaps. Source

Personal Review by Carol <aka> C_DEAN n C_AL:

The show is so full of inconsistencies that it’s not funny. But the episode is very funny! The time period for music is a killer! I love rock ‘n’ roll. Though I was just a youngster when all this happened. At times I think I’m watching an episode of MacGyver. All the fixin’ that Sam does, but no duck tape … LOL … I love the cars of this era, wish I had one. The clothes too, I remember my pink felt poodle skirt, pink fuzzy sweater, the navy blue and white saddle shoes with white cotton socks, fondly… and don’t forget the pony tails! *sighs* … Ahhh… those were the days!


Sam & Al’s Best Scene:
Al spies Chubby Checker and Brian walking past the window of the DJ booth.

Al says, "OMG! … SAM you gotta see this!" As he runs into the lobby with Sam following.

Sam says, "What is it?"

Al says, "It is! It’s Chubby Checker!"

Sam says, "Chubby Checker?"

Al says, "I can’t believe it!"

Sam says, "I can’t … wha-da-ya …"

Chubby Checker says, "Do I know you?"

Brian says, "Friend of yours?"

Sam says, " … Ahhh …"

Al says, "SAM!"

Sam says, "Ahhh …"

Al says, "YES! IT’S Chubby Checker!!!"

Sam says, "Huh?"

Al starts to sing and dance, "Come on baby let’s do the twist … "

Sam says, "THE TWIST!"

[Sam and Al, in unison, start singing and dancing and I think it breaks Brian’s concentration for his next line…lol]

Brian says, "It’s a pretty good demo, but I was just telling him I don’t think it’s really … it really has what it takes."

Rachel walks over to see what all the excitement is and says, "Twist?"

Chubby Checker is watching Sam dance, "Wow that’s great! … Say! Can I borrow that for my act?"

Sam says, "Ah sure, um but I mean … yeah but … I … I … I … got it from … from you, ha."

Al says, "SAM! Sam if you want this station to be number one, tell her to play that demo!"

Sam, grabbing the 45 from Brian’s hand and still twisting, turns to hand it to Rachel, "If you want this station to be number one you gotta play this dem-ooo!"

Chubby Checker says, "That’s good! I like that!"

Sam says, "Ha Ha Ha"

Rachel is watching Sam dance and trying it and Al is watching Rachel dance, "Yah I’ll give it a play … assuming I … can still … play rock ‘n’ roll … after the … council meeting."

Sam says, "Believe me! Nobody’s gonna pass a law banning rock ‘n’ roll!"

The song begins to play as Rachel walks away, doing a little twist with every step. The camera pans back to Sam, Al, Chubby, Brian and the receptionist … all dancing.



Best Scene:
When the lights go out, Sam and Rachel are in the dark. They get up and head towards the door:

Rachel says, "Oh damn!"
Sam says, "Lights went out."
Rachel says, "No kidding."
Sam says, "You got a kind of backup gen … a backup generator or somethin’?
Rachel says, "There’s a civil defense generator in the basement, but I don’t know how to work it … I don’t even know if it does work."
Sam says, "There’s one way to find out.
Rachel yells out, "CHICK!"
Sam says, "sor … sorry I just … try a … find the door."
Rachel says,
"Door knobs are usually placed a little lower aren’t they?"
