Quantum Leap Trivia Questions

1. In the Season 5 "Quantum Leap" premiere, Sam leaps into various stages of a real person involved in the JFK assassination. Who does he leap into?

From Quiz
Putting Things Right: "Quantum Leap" Season 5

Answer: Lee Harvey Oswald

This episode, titled simlply "Lee Harvey Oswald", is an extra-long, drama filled episode that pulls together a range of factual events from Oswald's life. The episode has several firsts, the main one being that Sam leaps into seven different timeframes of the same person's life, and not all in chronological order. The big reveal at the end of the episode is that Jackie Kennedy originally died in the assassination; so while Sam is unsuccessful in saving JFK, he is there all along for the purpose of saving Mrs Kennedy.

2. In the season premiere, "The Leap Back", what is different about the leap?

From Quiz Putting Things Right: "Quantum Leap" Season 4

Answer: Sam and Al have swapped places

Due to a lightning strike at the end of season 3, Sam becomes the hologram and Al is the person assigned the mission. It is indeed before Sam's lifetime (1945) but Sam is not the one who makes the leap. Al ends up saving the person he leaps into from being murdered; while in the 'real' timezone, Sam remembers he is married and reunites briefly with his wife.

3. The first episode of "Quantum Leap" season 3 is called "The Leap Home". Why?

From Quiz Putting things Right: "Quantum Leap" Season 3

Answer: Sam leaps into himself as a teenager

This is in fact part one of a two part episode. While Sam's mission (according to Al, at least) is to simply win his high school basketball tournament, he also wants to fix a few other events in his life. This includes his sister marrying an abusive man, his father dying of a heart attack, and his brother dying in Vietnam. Sam wins the match and leaps out: into the Vietnam War alongside his brother (which begins part two).

4. In the first episode of season 2, "Honeymoon Express", Sam is attempting to save the life of a woman on a train, but at the same time a drama is emerging that puts the whole Quantum Leap project in jeopardy. What is happening back at home?

From Quiz Putting Things Right: "Quantum Leap" Season 2

Answer: The project's funding is being threatened

The removal of funding for the project would of course strand Sam in the past. But in a lucky coincidence, the girl he saves goes on to become the head of the board deciding whether or not to continue the funding, which she does of course.

5. In the pilot episode "Genesis", we meet Sam's best friend, Al, in hologram form. What is Al's full first name?

From Quiz Putting Things Right: "Quantum Leap" Season 1

Answer: Albert

Albert "Al" Calavicci is an Admiral who has been married 5 times. Being a hologram, he can only help the main character, Sam, by talking to him and showing him things (including how to fly a plane!). Al's habit of walking through objects disturbs Sam on several occasions in season 1.

6. In "Genesis", what does the girl that Al picks up say that Al is late for?

From Quiz Quantum Leap

Answer: his wedding

Al says, "I'd like to fix your flat tire, but..." and she replies, "but you're late for your wedding and that's your only tux."

7. A Portrait For ________?

From Quiz Quantum Leap

Answer: Troian

Deborah Pratt, or Mrs. Donald Bellisario, co-stars in this episode as Troian. Troian believes she hears her husband Julian speak to her; who has been dead for 3 years. Sam leaps in as Dr. Mintz, a parapsychologist there to determine whether or not Troian is insane. It turns out that Troian's brother Jimmy is the one trying to drive her insane and to get her to commit suicide by drowning in the same lake her former husband is in. Carolyn Seymour plays the part of Miss Stoltz, Troian's housekeeper who turns out to be a ghost. You might remember her as Zoe, the evil leaper's equivalent to Al.

10. In the episode "Leaping of the Shrew", Sam finds himself on a deserted island as Niko, who is having to put up with a very challenging woman, Vanessa. What is the surprising end that allows Sam to leap?

From Quiz Putting Things Right: "Quantum Leap" Season 5

Answer: They both remain stranded on the island

Vanessa is played by none other than Brooke Shields, who fits nicely into the role given her fame for the "Blue Lagoon", a movie about being stranded on a deserted island. The twist to the story is that Niko originally rescued both he and Vanessa given his navigational skills, but Sam's lack of these talents mean they have time to fall in love and stay on the island.

11. In the episode "Permanent Wave", what does the title refer to in terms the person Sam leaps into?

13. A Leap For _____?

From Quiz Quantum Leap

Answer: Lisa

Sam leaps in to a young Navy Ensign nicknamed "Bingo" in 1957. "Bingo" turns out to be Al who is charged with raping and murdering his commanding officer's wife. Sam unknowningly compromises the situation and Al is convicted and sentenced to the gas chamber on October 6, 1960. Before the sentence is passed, Al is replaced by co-star Roddy McDowall who plays Sengen (St. John), Sam's new connection to the future. According to Sengen, "Ziggy" is now called "Alpha" and Tina is married to Gushi. By episodes end, Sam finds a cigar in Al's car that did not belong to him. As it turns out, Chip, Al's wing man, is the one who used Al's car the night of the murder and accidently killed the commander's wife. Thankfully Al was around for future episodes!

Sam succeeds in his mission to save Leon from being killed without a trial (and later, after changing history, he also saves the mother and daughter).
