Quantum Leap – tape 1226

First is an episode called Pool Hall Blues in which Sam jumps into the body of a legendary pool player, trying to help his daughter pay off a loan shark.

These episodes don’t have the “Theorizing he could travel…” intros

In Leaping Without a Net, Sam leaps into the body of an acrobat. And he has a fear of heights. He has to catch his partner when she does the Triple, or she’ll fall and die. No pressure, then.

Next, it’s Maybe Baby. Sam leaps into the body of a man who’s just kidnapped a baby, along with Bunny the stripper. Strangely, this episode doesn’t end with a teaser for the next one.

Then, Sea Bride, a weird romantic runaround where Sam has to prevent his ex-wife from marrying a mobster.

After this, there’s a trailer for The Vanishing Rembrandts. Then there’s a short film, Talking Rembrandt, in which Rolf Harris looks at the painting The Jewish Bride. Then there’s a trailer for Arena: Is A Man I Made Up about Armistead Maupin.

Then there’s the start of 40 Minutes, looking at Radio Luxembourg. Then, after a few minutes, the recording stops and underneath, there’s an episode of The Match. But that recording stops again, and underneath that there’s a James Coburn western in which he’s enjoying the facilities of a brothel. The tape runs out after a few minutes of this movie.


  1. Could the James Coburn western be the absolutely hateful Waterhole Three? If so, be glad you don’t have the whole thing!
