    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".

    SPOILER: Sam leaped beyond his day of birth a total of four times. In "Quantum Leap" (1989) {The Leap Back - June 15, 1945 (#4.1)}, Al and Sam traded places due to an accident, which allowed for leaping within Al's life. In "Quantum Leap" (1989) {The Leap Between the States - September 20, 1862 (#5.20)} revealed that Sam's great-grandfather had a very similar genetic profile and blood type. In "Quantum Leap" (1989) {Play It Again, Seymour - April 14, 1953 (#1.9)} and "Quantum Leap" (1989) {The Americanization of Machiko - August 4, 1953 (#2.3)}, he hadn't been born yet but was already conceived. Although since he was able to leap into his great-grandfather, that would already allow him to leap back past his his own lifetime.
