* In "Raped", Sam leaps into a rape victim and believes he's there to power through the trial and earn the victim justice, but the case falls through. Afterwards, Sam and Al discussing how, in the future, the family (the McBains) moves away shortly after the trial, presumably due to humiliation when the attacker reappears to exact revenge for putting him through the trial by another rape. Sam makes short work of the attacker. The parents come out and with the following exchange one just knows the family is going to be alright:

-->'''Dad:''' Sweetie, what happened?\\
'''Sam:''' He tried to do it again, only this time, I wasn't pinned inside of a car.\\
'''Dad:''' [stunned] You did that yourself?\\
'''Sam:''' Don't act so surprised, Dad. I mean, after all, I am a McBain.\\

** There's also the end of the episode: after successfully getting Sam shocked again, he proceeds to leap again. When he regains consciousness, it is made immediately clear that Sam's brain is fixed, due to him noticing Al (much to the two's relief). [[spoiler:[[HappyEndingOverride And then Al and Sam realize they've effectively switched places;]] [[OhCrap Al is the leaper, Sam the Observer...]]]]

--> [[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?!]]

* In "Trilogy," Sam and Al realize that Sam unintentionally conceived a child, Sammy Jo Fuller, with the woman he's been helping the past couple of leaps. At the end of the trilogy, when Al talks about 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 Sam leaps out, his "swiss-cheesed memory" will cause him to forget it as well. Sam simply responds: "I'll remember."

* "Mirror Image" ...That is all.

* Near the end of "The Camikazi Kid", Al announces his presence by singing along to a love song on the radio. Sam smiles and joins in, and they sing a verse together before stopping and greeting each other warmly. With all the hardship the two go through, it's adorable to see them just be friends.
