[Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble walking down a residential street, newspaper in hand, searching for an address and pausing at an apartment house]
The ad in the newspaper reads, "Wanted: some one to drive." For a Fugitive anxious to move on, it is apparently an ideal answer. Apparently.

Suzanne Pleshette and David Janssen are simply wonderful together in this episode. Their scenes are very easy and effortless; great pacing of the story, great timing in their dialogue. The sheriff and his deputy are very good too. We get to see a little humor in this one.
It's a fun episode whereas many Fugitive episodes are grim. For the most part, Kimble isn't on the run here. His job this week is to drive Peggy Franklyn and her daughter Nancy on a cross country road trip. The scene where Kimble meets Peggy is fun and fantastic. It sets the tone for the rest of the episode. After driving all afternoon, they stop for the night and have a drink at the hotel bar while Nancy is sleeping. That's when Peggy shares her life story with Kimble. Things get dangerous the following day when Nancy falls sick but it's always fun to hear Dr. Kimble pull out the medical jargon.
Suzanne Pleshette and David Janssen's last scene together is very touching. She even manages to get our hero to smile!
