Jean Carlisle (Character)
from "The Fugitive" (1963)
Dr. Richard Kimble: I wouldn't know one end of a golf club from another. Your father was a good golfer.
Jean Carlisle: He was. He shot in the low 70s and embezzled in the high 80s.
Dr. Richard Kimble: I read about his death. I didn't know him that well, but I thought he was a decent man.
Jean Carlisle: No, it wasn't decent of him to embezzle that money. A lot of people suffered for it. Neither was it decent for the good citizens of Stafford to destroy my mother for his sins.
Dr. Richard Kimble: I heard she had a rough time.
Jean Carlisle: [bitterly] Everyone did his civic duty. We were systematically starved, economically and emotionally. Thank God there was one subversive family in Stafford. The Kimbles.
Dr. Richard Kimble: I always wondered why your mother didn't leave Stafford.
Jean Carlisle: [softly] She couldn't. They wouldn't let her. They wanted to stay, and suffer, and die. And she did, very quietly. Fortunately that steno machine, my ticket out, has taken me to nine cities the last five years.
Dr. Richard Kimble: Do you ever get tired of traveling?
Jean Carlisle: [happily] No, how could anyone?
