I had to guess and I got it right. I had the same problem with Beau Bridges Son but I got that right too.

"Quantum Leap" is my all-time favorite show. Troian actually showed up in an episode as a very, VERY little girl who could see Dr. Sam Beckett as he really was when he "Leaped" into her mother.

Missed #5, #7, and #9.
I think I did 'relatively' well, guessing.
