Sam leaps into the body of an FBI Agent who is assigned to protect Dana Berrenger. She testified against her boss who used his company to import drugs, among other things. Unfortunately for her, her ex-boss was found not guilty at his trial and he's now out for revenge. She is in the witness protection program but the man has an uncanny ability of finding her. She thinks her FBI protector is just plain incompetent but it's obvious there is someone working on the inside. Written by garykmcd

Dana Barrenger: [Speaking to Sam as Peter Langly] I wanna love someone so much that the thought of living without him would be too much to bear. I wanna breathe him. I want the scent of him to make me smile. I wanna look into his eyes and know that I'm alive.

The Irony of this title
30 October 2018 | by smitjefSee all my reviews

All in all not my favorite episode of Quantum Leap. She is a horrible woman who honestly makes the bad guys of the episode seem much more likable. The head mobster seems half insane which I am assuming is because he has spent way too much time with her.
