[At Sam and Al's first meeting] Sam: Who are you? Al: My name is Albert... Albert what, I can't tell you because it's restricted. Most of what you'll want to know is restricted, so it would be a lot easier if you don't ask a lot of questions. Sam: What are you? Al: That's a question, Sam. Al Calavicci: You're part of a time-travel experiment that went a little... ka ka. Dr. Sam Beckett: A little ka ka? HOW ka ka? Al Calavicci: Well, you're here! That's great! Nobel Prize material. You should be proud. Dr. Sam Beckett: And...? Al Calavicci: [hesitating] And... we're experiencing technical difficulties in retrieving you. Gushie: [Al and a stranded motorist are in Al's car, driving towards the Project; Al sees the Accelerator lights glowing in the sky, and calls the Project] Control! Al: What's happening, Gushie? Gushie: He's Leaping! Ziggy said no, but Sam's Leaping! Al: He can't Leap, we're not ready! Gushie: Tell Sam that! Al: Put him on! Gushie: I can't! He's in the Accelerator! Al, Al, what do I do? Al: Nothing! Any interference could kill him! I'll be there in two minutes! [to woman] Al: Hang on, beautiful! [Hits the gas] [Sam has just made the first Quantum Leap] Sam: We did it!... Did what? [Al is helping a stranded motorist] Al: I would love to fix that flat for you. But I can't! Woman: Let me guess: It's your only tux, and you're late for your wedding. Al: How could I be late? We just met! Al: You're part of a time travel experiment that went a little... ka-ka. Sam:
It all started when a time travel experiment I was conducting went... a little ka-ka. In the blink of a cosmic clock I went from quantum physicist to air force test pilot. Which could have been fun... if I knew how to fly. Fortunately, I had help. An observer from the project named Al. Unfortunately, Al's a hologram, so all he can lend is moral support. Anyway, here I am. Bouncing around in time, putting things right which once went wrong. A sort of time traveling Lone Ranger, with Al as my Tonto. And I don't even need a mask. Oh boy.
Sam: Who created this Ziggy? Al: You. Quantum Leap is your baby. You're the genius behind it. At least you were before your brain got magnafoogled. Sam: No, no, see, I'm a medical doctor. I found that much out. Al: You hold six doctorates, Sam. Medicine is just one. Your special gift was quantum physics. Time magazine even called you the next Einstein. The truth is, if there's one guy who could figure how to bring you back... its you. Sam: And I can't even remember my name! Al: [Pausing, and deciding to break Sam's own rule, even though Al knows Sam will use the information to contact his father] Beckett. Sam Beckett
