When Barbara says she can't go away for the weekend to a deserted, romantic getaway, Kimble is crushed. The radiant Barbara seems to love the fugitive too, but admits something holds her back. The lake resort is right on Kimble's Pacific Northwest truck route, so with nothing to do for the weekend he stops by without her. What's the relationship between enigmatic Barbara and her silent visitor ? Written by David Stevens

This episode portrays one of the more convincing romances Kimble has in his travels. Working at a trucking company, Kimble meets Barbara Wells, played by actress Janice Rule. She falls for him, and the feeling is mutual. Yet, when Kimble asks her out, she will only go for coffee during the day. At night, she is always busy.

The problem is that Barbara is on work-release from prison. Kimble invites her to spend the weekend out of town while he is on a trucking run, and she must refuse. But her heart overtakes her good sense and she runs after him, violating the terms of her release.

They spend a wonderful weekend together, but each of them faces jeopardy when the law comes after them.
