In the Season 5 opening, "Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime...", the visuals reflect the narration.

This prologue sequence, altered in the beginning of season 4 to feature the exterior scene of Project Quantum Leap and its interior, replaced the original prologue from the show's spring 1989 episode, narrated by Scott Bakula, in syndication repeats.
