    I really enjoyed this episode. I have pretty much seen Sam leap into anybody and everybody but this episode was a first for me to see him leap into a young teenage boy. I just love how he tries to fix everything but he has to do it like a 13 year old so he isn't as effective as he would be as an adult. I think that it is because of that that I enjoy the show much more. I like watching the character of Sam struggle to leap and to get into all kinds of sticky situations. After seeing the ending of this episode and the beginning of the next episode i cannot wait.moreless

    • In this episode, Sam is able to hang his sister upside down above a well in order to get her to stop picking on him.

      Normally, this would be an impossible task for who Sam leaps into, one of the many proofs behind the idea that Sam "physically" leaps into the people he replaces, as opposed to simply replacing them mentally or emotionally.
