Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of 13 year-old Butchie Rickett. It's July 4, 1964 and the Ricketts are on a 9000 mile trip across America. Butchie is a typical 13 year-old. He's regularly bullied by his older sister and can't quite seem to live up to his father's expectations. Al tells him that unless Sam intervenes, Butchie's mother Emma will disappear later that day and never be seen again. When Emma meets Billy, an old high school friend who is now a widower, Sam assumes that she's run off with him. Her disappearance is related to something completely different however.

Goofs

Either there's a sign on the Colorado border with incorrect spelling or a prop contains incorrect spelling. As they cross from Wyoming into Colorado, they pass a sign which reads: WELCOME TO COLORADO "NOTHING WITHOUT THE DIETY" The 'i' and 'e' in the final word are misplaced. The correct spelling is DEITY.
