Strip by: Crazy56U

{Just as a warning, there is no dialogue in this strip, and I'm being extra descriptive. Buckle up}
{Sam Beckett is at a bar, enjoying a beer in the morning, proving he is currently in the past. The bartender is putting away some money in a cash register}
{Sam casually walks along the front of the bar's counter, happy}
{He pauses upon seeing his own reflection in the bar's mirror, and is taken aback}
{Sam grabs at his head in confusion}
{The bartender looks at Sam in concern}
{He then turns to the bar's mirror}
{As Sam still grabs at his head, the bartender has put an "Out of Order" sticky note on the glass}
{The transcript's author is now probably regretting doing an eight-panel comic with no dialogue}
{C'est la vie}

The author writes:

This is mainly being done to ease my mind. For the longest time, I have been so sure that someone had already done a Quantum Leap reference comic for this site involving Garfield and a mirror, the one my mind keeps jumping towards being based on the one where Snoopy is his reflection.

However, for the life of me, I can't work up the effort of combing through the archive to confirm this potentially Mandela Effect-induced memory, so I went this route instead upon seeing the strip where Garfield decides a mirror is out of order after seeing his fat reflection.

But hey, at the very least, I still put more effort into this Quantum Leap comic than Innovation did for its Quantum Leap line.

Original Quantum Leap episode: 1993-05-05 (US).

Original strip: 2000-09-25.
