    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Gary picks up the rifle from the post office on the day after Kimble takes him to the movies, which is on a Sunday. Post offices are not open on Sundays.

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Opening Narration: A target may be paper, an animal, or a man. To a gun it makes no difference, nor does it care who pulls the trigger or why. To Richard Kimble, a fugitive, guns are a familiar enemy, for he is always a target, a target for which the law has issued a mandate -- if necessary, shoot to kill.

      • Closing Narration: Love needs time to grow. And a hunted man has no time. Yesterday, a need that found hope in a look, a word, a touching of hands, is today denied by flight, a flight from guns. Today's guns are already miles behind -- but the need remains.

    • NOTES (3)

      • Barry Morse is credited but doesn't appear.

      • This is one of the very few episodes where Kimble is not chased out of town by the police. The landlady calls the police not so much to report Kimble, but to report Gary's injury from a gunshot. But Kimble remains imperiled because Shaw, the social worker, is interrogating him relentlessly. The Fugitive must leave town before the truth comes out.

      • Location: Iroquois, New York
        Kimble's Alias: Bob Stoddard.
