Quantum Leap – A Little Miracle [3.10]

Sam leaps into Reginald Pearson, a valet for the wealthy and cold-hearted Michael Blake, whose new building development is going to toss a Salvation Army mission and the people it helps out onto the streets. Sam decides the way to help Blake to change is to take inspiration from A Christmas Carol and to help him reconnect with the past and to see the implications of the present. When that doesn’t work, he and Al resort to more drastic measures. Taking advantage of a fluke that allows Blake to see Al, they make him believe he is being visited by the Ghost of Christmas Future to bring home to Blake where his current path is taking him, which leads to Blake becoming a changed man.
