    • Opening Narration: Never chase a thief -- not if your own fear of capture is probably greater than his. Even in the fashionable remoteness of Indian Lake Lodge, that fear haunts this clerk who calls himself Stu Manning. At other times, Richard Kimble might have enjoyed vacationing here. But there is no vacation for a fugitive.

    • Closing Narration: The difference between good and bad, between love and hate, is often elusive. The difference between life and death, for Richard Kimble, is always simply his freedom to remain a fugitive.

    • When the young hipster gets on the bus near the end of Act IV, he says to Kimble, "Ah, Kemo Sabe, Tonto got message," mimicking Jay Silverheels' character in the 1950s TV show, The Lone Ranger. The actor Jay Silverheels played the character Tonto, while Clayton Moore was the title character in this very popular show.
