Samantha Caine (Geena Davis) knows nothing about her past. She had been found eight years ago on a beach, pregnant and injured, but remembers nothing of her former life. Since then she has given birth to her daughter, Caitlin (Yvonne Zima), and met a very nice man. For a while she hired a few private investigators, including Mitch Hennessey (Creator/SamuelLJackson), but they never came up with anything. She has been living a peaceful, idyllic life working as a schoolteacher and raising her daughter, and has pretty much decided to give her former, unknown life the "[[TitleDrop long kiss goodnight]]".

* InformedAttribute: Every time Timothy uses his LivingLieDetector abilities in the movie, people are actually telling him the truth.
** People keep on saying Samantha is chubby but she looks perfectly fine.
*** Waldman says she's "frumpier" which probably refers to her more plain, matronly looks as Sam. Charly says her ass got bigger, which could be true.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Samantha in her Charly status is the female version of this.

Stragely enough, given the InformedAttractiveness example above, Waldman says she's "frumpier" which that Samantha got "frumpier," probably refers refering to her more plain, matronly looks as Sam.Sam, even though she still looks ''damn fine''. Charly says her ass got bigger, which could be true.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: JerkWithAHeartOfGold:

Samantha in her Charly status is an example of GoodIsNotNice with a huge emphasis on the female version of this."Not Nice."

* NiceJobFixingitVillain: If One-Eyed Jack had refrained from trying to kill Samantha, she wouldn't have tried to find out why that happened, which means she wouldn't have recalled her former identity as Charly Baltimore, and therefore, she wouldn't have foiled his boss' plans.
