Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble boarding a passenger bus labeled "Iroquois Bus Line."] Love needs time to grow. Yesterday a need that found hope in a look, a word, a touching of hands is today denied by flight. A flight from guns. Today's guns are already miles behind, but the need remains.

Plot summary

Kimble works at a restaurant with waitress Susan Cartwright, played by actress Lois Nettleton. Kimble has been dating Susan, and the mutual attraction seems genuine and strong. But her life is changed when her nephew, 12 year old Gary, arrives, after her sister and brother-in-law are killed in an accident.

Gary, seeking approval of the local boys, participates in sending away for a rifle by mail order, which was legal back then. One of the boys is played by actor Kurt Russell (who a year earlier played Phil Gerard Jr. in "Nemesis").

Trouble arises when Gary recognizes Kimble from news coverage in his former hometown. The boys come up with a plan to use the rifle to capture Kimble. Gary is disturbed when he comes home to find Kimble there as his aunt's date. Kimble faces danger from the boys and from a nosy child welfare worker investigating to see if Susan will be a fit parent.
