Narrator: [Opening Narration] He used to be a Doctor of Medicine. He's a chauffeur now, driving his employer home to the small mid-western town where he was born. Home - for the man at the wheel it is only a word, because there is no home for him. Not now, because he is Richard Kimble, fugitive.

Plot summary

Kimble is employed by George Forster, a successful businessman. He drives George to his old hometown, a small midwestern town. George is setting up a factory there, and has come home to celebration and acclaim.

Unfortunately, jealousies are right under the surface of the welcoming town. Years ago George had asked one old friend for a loan, and the friend refused, leaving him out of George's spectacular success. Another lost his football career to a parking lot accident that he blames on George. Another was a young woman whose father would not allow her to be with her first love George because he was a broke young man without any prospects.

Complications set in when an anonymous threat is made on George's life. Kimble is issued a gun by the sheriff, who unfortunately must send in Kimble's prints to get the permit.

The episode has an outstanding cast, including Richard Anderson, Ed Asner, Milton Selzer and Fay Spain. Actor DeForest Kelley (Dr. McCoy on Star Trek) does a good job in a minor role as the town drunk.
