The Fugitive

The Judgment (1) - S4-E28

Continuity mistake: The date of Helen Kimble's murder is given here as Sept. 19, 1961. Previous episodes, however, had established it as occurring on Sept. 17, 1960.

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: In flashback, we see the one-armed man kill Helen Kimble by striking her with a heavy lamp. All through the earlier seasons, though, we were repeatedly told that Helen had been strangled. (00:28:50)

Never Wave Goodbye (2) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: In Part 1, Kimble worried about Gerard tracing him by a match he left behind. We got a close-up when he tore the match out of the book: it was the 3rd in a row of 5. But here, as he looks at the matchbook and worries again, the close-up shows the only match missing from the book is the 5th one. (00:02:00)

Never Stop Running - S1-E26

Continuity mistake: Ralph's brother hits him over the head with a bottle, which shatters. When Kimble runs past the same spot a few shots later, though, the broken glass is gone. (00:43:30)

The Judgment (2) - S4-E29

Continuity mistake: Throughout the show's early episodes, Helen Kimble's dress on the night she was murdered was described as blue or blue-gray. Here, in the flashback to the murder, she's wearing an evening gown that isn't blue or gray, but pink. (00:27:45)

Terror at High Point - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: Dan tosses a silver dollar into the puddle of water and we see it sink. A few shots later, though, the coin is visible again, impossibly "floating" on the puddle's surface. (00:05:20)

Somebody to Remember - S1-E25

Continuity mistake: The wine crates on Kimble's hand truck in the opening scenes shift positions by themselves between takes. (00:02:25)

Where the Action Is - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Kimble and Chris are on a busy freeway with several other cars when a police car pulls them over. But when they stop, the other cars all vanish and the road is suddenly deserted. (00:36:50)

Glass Tightrope - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: Kimble's wanted poster in this episode lists his birthplace as Beloit, Wisconsin. In every other episode featuring close-ups of the poster, Kimble's birthplace is Stafford, Indiana. (00:41:40)

Jean G

Nightmare at Northoak - S1-E11

Continuity mistake: When Gerard leaves the cell block, Kimble is at the cell door with his hands on the bars. Next shot, as Gerard exits, the cell door is visible in the background, and Kimble is no longer standing there. But in an immediate cut back to the cell, he's back with his hands on the bars again. (00:35:35)

Jean G

Never Wave Goodbye (2) - S1-E5

Continuity mistake: Gerard is rowing the life raft with his back to the shoreline. But in the next shot, he's instantly facing in the other direction as the waves begin tossing the raft. (00:41:30)

Glass Tightrope - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Rowland's wife unfolds Kimble's wanted poster, the center crease is peaked toward her. But when we see a close-up of it, the poster has been folded the opposite way, with the crease pointing away from her. (00:41:45)

Smoke Screen - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: Dr. Kimble says here that he interned in New York. In "The Survivors," we were told that he interned at County Hospital in Fairgreen, Indiana.

The Breaking of the Habit - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Kimble was gimpy early in the episode, because he had been shot in the leg. During the episode he refuses any treatment. But near the end of the episode he is seen walking without a limp and in perfect health.

Dossier on a Diplomat - S4-E25

Continuity mistake: Kimble tells Hobart there's no new evidence that could get him another trial. But maybe Dr. Kimble is suffering from amnesia. In the past 3 1/2 seasons, he's uncovered no fewer than four potential witnesses who could provide new evidence in a second trial. (00:22:35)

Jean G

The Breaking of the Habit - S4-E19

Continuity mistake: Kimble enters Sister Veronica's room, closes the door and walks toward her. Then the shot cuts to a closer angle, and he's closing the door over again. (00:31:55)

Passage to Helena - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: Rafe and Kimble escape handcuffed together. They break the linking chain with a rock: each then wears a single bracelet. But when he kneels to examine the dead deputy, Kimble is wearing a cuff with an intact chain and an empty bracelet hanging from it. (00:28:45)

Jean G

A Clean and Quiet Town - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: The rear tires on Kimble's car get stuck in the sand and spin when he's trying to U-turn and avoid the roadblock. After the police order him to drive back to town with them, however, the car wheels somehow unstick themselves, and Kimble has no trouble at all driving out of the sand pit. (00:48:25)

Jean G

The Other Side of the Coin - S4-E16

Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Corby arrests Kimble outside the boarding house, the front door is open and the porch light is on. In the next shot, as they get in the car and drive away, the house door has closed itself and the porch light is off. (00:27:55)

Season 2 generally

Continuity mistake: Kimble is wounded in the leg and is limping badly when he escapes at the end. Yet in the epilogue, supposedly occurring soon after, he's walking down a road with no sign of the limp, and has also acquired a cowboy hat that he didn't have before. (00:45:50)
