Everything I Need to Know About Time Travel I Learned from Best Friend

Best Friend and I, we share the Cher love. (I sound just like her in the car. I may have mentioned that before.) The greatest Cher/Best Friend Moment? Best Friend and I were on the phone during the commercial break of some televised concert, and as the show comes back on Best Friend says "I gotta go! She's turning back time!" I, of course, fully understood. Because if I could turn back time, I'd take back those words that would hurt you, too. Just like Cher.

Best Friend and I, we also share the Quantum Leap Love. Seriously, how could we not? I mean, after all, theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr.Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap Accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own, striving to put right what once went wrong. And hoping each time that his next leap would be the leap home. (Yes, I totally have the opening monologue memorized. I mean, I have the whole series on DVD.) How do you not love this show? I mean, the two-parter where first Sam leaps into himself at age 16 and gets to see his family again, and then leaps directly into his brother's platoon in Vietnam and sees Al being lead off as a POW? Just hand me some tissue and leave me be for two hours.

If I could time travel, I'd want to do it like Sam Beckett. Or Cher. Either one. And, you know, fix things that didn't quite work out right the first time around. And I'd take Best Friend with me (since it's all her fault I like this stuff anyway).

tell it to me tuesdays

Oh this is such a "time dated" post! Just these two things are enough to make me realize we are about the same age.

I too, still love Cher, I mean honestly, to deal with everything life has handed her and still come out on top, shows a lot of gumption on her part.

Quantum Leap, I fell in love with that show faithfully each and every week it was on, though not enough to purchase the DVD's!

Thanks for a walk down memory lane!

I'd go anywhere Scott Bakula wanted me to go, in this dimension or any other. =>
