I have something to tell the team about Sam Beckett Jr. Here’s Dr. J to explain.
Multiple dystrophy isn’t real.
Oh my god you lied to us.
Guys, Beckett is the only reason we’re not the worst team in the league.
Deal with this internally.
We’re gonna make you wear terrible shoes.
And it’s only going to make you a better player, isn’t it?
We’re still not putting you in the starting rotation.
Really? I was player of the month, I’ve been scoring more than any other two guys put together.
Jackson, I want you to kill Sam Beckett.
But you are Sam Beckett.
My head hurts.
Another game against Detroit?
I don’t make the NBA schedule, Sam.
This is already feeling silly. Why is Jackson Ellis still my rival?
I’m easily one of the best scorers in the NBA and he’s just…okay.
Don’t ask me how this works, Sam. The future is just as strange to me as it is to you.
At this point, my rivals should be a whole lot better than Jackson Ellis.
Something is going on with that kid. I just can’t explain it.
He called me Dr. Sam Beckett the first time we met.
Still haven’t explained that.
He must have some knowledge of Project Quantum Leap.
It’s not impossible. Remember: to him, Project Quantum Leap is the past.
Wait, what? It’s still not going on in 2014?
Ziggy 2.0 says that it was ended in the late 1990s.
That means that I return home eventually, right?
I don’t know, Sam. I can’t promise anything.
I keep thinking about something my agent told me…
You still don’t know his name?
He said that something happened to me–to Junior–back in Indiana.
He thought I wouldn’t want to go back there.
Ziggy 2.0 still hasn’t figured anything out.
Yeah, it can’t even find my agent’s name.
This is a developing technology! We are pulling information from the future!
Do you have any idea how hard that is?
It’s harder than hitting a three point shot.
That’s been pretty easy for me.
Yo, Sam, how’s it going?
Great! It’s going great, except I can’t get into the starting rotation for anything.
Remember what I told you about trades?
Look, man, I can’t ask for a trade.
That’s cool. But we need to talk.
You’re right. I want to know what happened to me back in–
Boy, you don’t want to go over that right now.
But I do! I have a lot of questions. I was so young…
I was young, right? When this tragedy struck…
Man, this isn’t the time! I got you an exclusive meeting.
Listen, as you get further into this there are companies who are gonna want you to endorse them.
Use these opportunities to build your brand.
Your brand, Sam. Your brand.
Well, okay, I guess if this is going to build my brand.
But later, we’re going to talk about my dark past.
Fine, we’ll talk about your dark past.
