Goofs

When Kimble asks people to donate blood he only states that Gerard's blood type is type B, without mentioning the necessary Rh factor, a critical point he shouldn't have ignored. (If Gerard's blood type is B- he could easily die if the donor is B+.) Alternatively, Kimble could have asked for blood type O-, which is universally acceptable by everyone, regardless of their own blood type. See more »

Quotes

Jonesie: [Throughout the episode Jonesie gradually sings this song one stanza at a time] From the hills at night the outlaw came, / Just running for to live, / And the pretty little girl never knew his name, / Still all her love she give.
Jonesie: It's a sad, sad song that I'm singing, / It's a sad, sad tale that I tell, / About a love that a poor girl is bringing, / To a man who is destined for Hell.
Jonesie: At the outlaw's heals the sheriff rode, / With a gun strapped to his side, / And the ever running man lived the ...

Richard Kimble as Mike Johnson has been picking cauliflower with the Kelleys, migrant farmworkers who took him in when he was ill. He bids them good bye in the first scene, off to hop a freight. Girard shows up, threatening to imprison Kelly for a year as an accessory unless he reveals where Kimble went. Kelley chooses reluctantly to reveal that "Mike" is waiting at the tracks, so that he can stay out of jail and protect his wife and daughter, Ida Catherine. Lester Kelly's code is to protect his community at all costs. Girard's code is to catch his man. Girard does nab Kimble at the tracks, and the look in Kimble's eyes says it all. But a hurricane forces them both to spend the night in the barn of the Crawford ranch back with the Kelly family and other migrant workers. Lester Kelley would like to redeem himself, and the migrants attack Girard to help "Mike" escape. Kimble's code now moves to center stage: as a doctor, he will do no harm, and will also do anything to save a life. Girard's and Kimble's relationship becomes deeper during this night. A portion of the barn collapses on Girard, severing an artery so that blood loss leaves him near death. Kimble puts together the equipment to stabilize him. "I guess I'm impressed," mumbles Girard. "But it doesn't change anything," asks Kimble. "It doesn't change anything," agrees Girard. Kimble needs the help of the migrant community to save Girard, but Kelley and his people do not understand why they should save the policeman who wants to execute a man they have come to trust and respect. Ida Catherine, a young woman of perhaps seventeen, is infatuated with Kimble. He respects and cherishes her admiration, but it goes no further. Her love for him leads her to go against her father's instinct to protect the community at all costs, and to embrace Kimble's code, as she volunteers to help Kimble save Girard. This is one of the finest Fugitive episodes. Folk music brings in the hopes of the 1960s. The song that Jonesie plays is about Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, the whole story is listed here http://www.desertusa.com/mag04/july/billy.html.
