'''Sam:''' I would not be traveling around in time. You gotta have the dream first, Al. Great scientists are never objective. And that's why people always think that they're loony, which is exactly what they think about Max. But don't you see? I mean, don't you get it, Al? You see, a discovery like this--I mean, it could mean... I feel the way I felt the first time I saw my time-travel calculations working. I'm so unbelievably lucky to be there on the cutting edge of solving one of mankind's oldest riddles. And now? Now, I have the chance to solve a second one in the same lifetime. I mean... nobody gets that chance. Nobody.

* In "Trilogy", Sam and Al realize that Sam unintentionally conceived a child with the woman he's been helping the past couple of leaps. At the end of the trilogy, when Al talks the positive changes he's caused, Sam asks how he knows; Al responds, "She told me". He explains that thanks to Sam, his daughter goes from writing tech manuals for a no-name computer company to being a member of the Quantum Leap Project -- and she has an idea on how to bring him home.
** However, Sammy doesn't know that Sam is her father, and Al warns that once he leaps out, his "swiss-cheesed memory" will cause him to forget it as well. Sam simply responds: "I'll remember."

** The full explanation, which doubles as a Tear Jerker:
--> [[spoiler:There was a girl named Trudy. She was retarded, Sam! Her IQ was lower than Jimmy's. And all the kids in the neighborhood, they used to tease her. Kids can be cruel. They'd call her names, like "dummy" and "monkey face." And I hated it. And I used to get in fights all the time over this. But that's what big brothers are for, right? My mother couldn’t handle it. That's probably why she ran off with this stupid encyclopedia salesman. But my dad tried to keep us all together. He was a construction worker. He went from job to job, and then when it took him to the Middle East, I wound up in an orphanage and she wound up in an institution. When I was old enough, I went back there for her, but it was too late—she was gone, Sam. Pneumonia, they said… How does a sixteen year old girl die from pneumonia in 1953, Sam?]]
