    • Closing Narration: When Martin Rowland accepted imprisonment for his crime, he set himself free from a prison of a guilty conscience and from a woman who had no conscience. Not so fortunate for Richard Kimble. His imprisonment remains unchanged.

    • Opening Narration: It doesn't matter who you are or where. Every town, every city is just like the last. A way-point on an endless road that goes nowhere. A place to stop running, to think, to hide. Another job, another name. Is that enough? It has to be. It's all you've got.
