His first jump, sees him jump, minus shoes and socks and he more or less gets caught up and prevents an abduction of an attorney of law, Mr Pratt. Once initially saved, we see Katie going to the office and giving Dan a brown bag, containing his shoes and socks. His boss has a soft spot for Katie, wants her to join the paper, but she declines him as usual.
When they are alone, they discuss the events and narrow down the date and time, it is the day of the 89 earthquake in San Francisco, he checks the web but finds no mention of Mr Pratt being a victim of the quake, but he does come across Hugh's sister being a victim. Then before he knows it, he returns back to the same spot that he was dropped off at the first time, just later in the day.
With the advice of Lydia, he gets to understand the date issue a bit more, but also explains that he's not to deviate from his given task, as it just doesn't change things, it just makes no difference to the outcome. He tries to convince the authorities that some eco-terrorists are trying to blow up bridges and tunnels, then as he leaves the bar, bumps into the lawyer Mr Pratt, who gets his money off of Dan and goes to a card game, whilst Dan gets chased by the cops.
Dan goes back to the present, talks to Katie some more, gets her to take his voice calls in his absence and then as he disappears into the past, she gets a call from his source regarding a vote rigging contract, she does well and still had the old journalist instinct.
Meanwhile, he persuades to convince Alan Pratt about the gambling, he drags him out of the game as the earthquake hits, the building where the game was being held collapses, waking him upto his fate, grateful to be alive.
We see Dan and Hugh talking about things, getting things out in the open. Then when he goes home he is confronted with Katie and the watch belonging to Livia, she wants to know where she is.
