The way I've come to understand it is that the Leapees return, finding that their lives have changed for the better, but aren't exactly sure of how that's happened. Depending on the level of involvement or neuromeshing between Sam and the Leapee, they probably remember different amounts or have different ways of explaining what's happened - alien abductions, angelic intervention, whatever.

As for the bartender's statement that Sam's actions touch lives which touch other lives and so on, I always thought it was referring to a time travel ripple effect - by improving one person's life, they can do things that will help others, that will help others...etc.
