    This is my absolute favorite episode. Part one and can't have one without the other. It's like no other episode in the series. It has a very magical appeal to it. In the opening of each episode it talks about fates huge this case...fate was God. However, I do not consider this episode to be religious in any way. It has many heartwarming moments and many funny ones as well. It teaches courage, trust and faith. I feel this episode has it all. And the black and white adds to it...I could not imagine this episode being done in color. I feel the color would actually detract from it's appeal.moreless

    • Opening Narration: A "miracle" is defined as an effect on the physical world which surpasses all known human powers. For Richard Kimble, however, this has become a world of stark realities, a world where life is lived in inches -- each one possibly the last.

    • Closing Narration: Two fugitives: one who has lost faith in her strength to cross a mountain, the other who must cross it in order to live. Sister Veronica turns to Richard Kimble for help. But the road is long and the mountain is high.

    • Sister Veronica: Nick Walker you said?
      Kimble: That's right, Sister.
      Sister Veronica: Well, Mr. Walker, you are a splendid mechanic. This car has not run so well since I left the convent.
      Kimble: This car isn't running, Sister. It's looking for a quiet place to die.

    • Kimble: I don't suppose you made financial provisions for the trip?
      Sister Veronica: Of course...(looks in her purse) $20.35.
      Kimble: Good.
      Sister Veronica: That's what I had when I stared out. My balance now is $1.45.
      Kimble: A dollar fou...that isn't even going to get us to the top of the next hill!
