The Fugitive

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)

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)

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)

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 End Game - S1-E29

Continuity mistake: We're told here that 4 jurors held out for a not-guilty verdict at Kimble's trial. In "Search in a Windy City," it was said to be 3 jurors. (00:27:20)
