Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble boarding a bus labeled "Southern Colorado Lines" with a destination of Denver] Justice can be delivered by a final act of violence, or it can be elusive and taunting as it has become for Richard Kimble. For him justice hides around the next bend in the road, beyond the next mountain, on the bus just pulling out. Somewhere, sometime, he will it. And so, he moves on.

3/9/65 "Everybody Gets Hit in the Mouth Sometime"
16 June 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

Jack Klugman returns, again playing a grouchy small business operator, (See "Terror at Highpoint"). Here's he's running a trucking company- and paying through the nose to the self-involved widow of a driver killed on one of his runs. He's known for bending the rules to keep his small-time operation afloat and the authorities are looking over his shoulder, which means they are also looking over the shoulder of his dispatcher, Richard Kimble, (also a similar job to one he had in the earlier episode). A sleazy crook played by Michael Constantine has a possible solution to Klugman's problems: set up a high-jacking for a cut of the proceeds. Klugman eventually gives into him and decides to drive the rig himself. Kimble finds out the authorities are onto the deal and have set up a trap. He jumps into another truck and an exciting chase results along a dangerous mountain road.

The final scene has a rare light touch. The widow's bratty kid hits him with a slingshot. Kimble turns around and spanks him, before moving on to William Conrad's deep dramatic, narration.
