Quotes

Lt. Philip Gerard: Why don't you stop running and turn yourself in, Kimble?
Dr. Richard Kimble: There's a man I have to find. A one-armed man. When I find him, I'll turn myself in.
Lt. Philip Gerard: Still sticking to that same tall tale? "A one-armed man killed my wife". The truth is... you're guilty not only in my eyes, but in the eyes of the law.

4 June 2015 | by schappe1See all my reviews

One of the great episodes of this great show. The tables get completely turned around as Gerard follows Kimble into hillbilly territory, (as he did in the third ever episode, "The Other Side of the Mountain", which also had Bruce Dern in it). Kimble wins the trust of the local people by saving the life of one of the patriarch's sons with his medical skills and then doing the same for their daughter. They also empathize with him because the law is his enemy, as it is theirs. They rough up Gerard when he barges in. The daughter drives off in his car. Gerard follows on foot. One of the boys, (Dern) gets involved in a friendly wrestling match with the daughter, (played by Sharon Farrell) and accidentally tosses her onto a rock, giving her a concussion. Gerard catches up and Dern runs away. When the rest of the family catches up to Gerard, they think he did it. His defense: he saw a man running away from the scene. There's even a scene where Gerard, trying to escape, falls into a puddle, just as Kimble did in the original opening to show, after the train wreck. He's captured and the family puts Gerard on trial with Kimble essentially acting as his defense attorney! They both get out of it but Gerard is unmoved by the irony of the predicament that he was in- on the surface, anyway.
