[show]There were several ideas for episodes which ultimately were never used. One had Sam leaping in as Robert F. Kennedy. Another idea would involve an animated episode. The producers even toyed with the idea of leaping Sam in as a baby (this was to be the story of the 14th issue of the Quantum Leap comic book, but production ended after issue 13). Also, Donald P. Bellisario wanted to do an episode where Sam leaps in as Thomas Magnum (from Magnum, P.I.). It is unclear why that episode never materialized, although in an earlier episode, a character is seen watching "Magnum, P.I.", thus establishing that show as fiction within the Quantum Leap "universe".
- Sam Beckett and show creator Donald P. Bellisario both share the same birthday of August 8.
