  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Al: (to Sam) Your swiss-cheesed brain probably doesn't remember, but... the first time around, Oswald killed Jackie, too.

    • Oswald: I don't believe in killing someone just because I disagree with their politics!
      Al: ARE you acting alone?
      Oswald: I - I want a lawyer. (Al pulls the trigger right next to Oswald's ear.)

  • Notes

    • This is the first time Sam's mind merges with the leapee's mind and also the first time Sam leaps into a notable person in history.

    • Though his name was not mentioned in the episode, the Secret Service agent that Sam leaped into was Clinton J. Hill.

    • After Sam leaps, rather than seeing his next leap, there is instead a montage of historical photos featuring the Kennedy's funeral.

    • The two Lee Harvey Oswald episodes were originally aired as a single two-hour episode.

      On the subsequent DVD release, this episode is presented as such.
