Dr. Kimble, who usually avoids giving details of his past to anyone, tells Judge Parker that he went to Northwestern, which the judge recognizes as a Big Ten Conference member. The judge himself went to Williams, in Massachusetts. See more »
My pa used to shake his head and say,"That Dorina's more wild critter than girl." I guess that's hard for you to believe. All the dirt washed off.
Dr. Richard Kimble:
Not all of it.

Dr. Kimble's living and working at a Georgia plantation. For a change, he's not working a menial job. His college education doesn't seem out of place this time. When the owner invites him for dinner and drinks in celebration of his daughter's homecoming, Kimble evidently enjoys dinner conversation with a judge and they talk about where they went to college.
Kimble's interaction with the daughter Janice is very gentle. After suffering a breakdown and spending time in a sanitarium, she's fragile. So Kimble is very protective of her. And she needs protection - from her new stepmother, who thinks of her as a threat to her position as lady of the house; from the unwelcomed advances of a persistent suitor, who happens to be the county sheriff; and from the terror of barking dogs, who remind her of the mauling death of a little boy. When Janice's stepmother Dorina realizes that Kimble is sympathetic to Janice, she gets the sheriff to threaten him.
There is a certain Southern charm to this episode. Kimble doesn't look stressed out or overly tired like he does sometimes. He's pretty calm. We see him listening to the radio, reading, taking walks. Outside of Dorina and the sheriff, everyone's pretty nice to him.
