(digs in his pocket)

Before I forget, I went by the garage

this afternoon and picket up the

Ferrari. Thanks for the loaner again.

He hands Kimble a valet ticket.


They fix it this time?


We'll see.

They reach the Woman Kimble saw, his wife, HELEN KIMBLE.

Kimble kisses her.


You look fabulous, Helen.

He kisses Helen.


Hello, Jim.


(to Kimble)

We've got a court tomorrow at three.

Nichols leaves. Kimble looks at his wife.

A table for ten. Kimble and Helen introduce themselves to

others at table ant sit across from each other.

Kimble sits between two doctors' wives. One, NOW EAU WIFE,

mid-thirties, bedecked in jewels and loud dress, the other


Helen sits between their husbands who are trying to impress

her with the details of their boring studies as CREDITS


INTERCUTTING WITH the fashion, catches of dialog and course

changes, Kimble and Helen demonstrate an oft-used exchange

of glances:
Kimble, while gracious to his dinner partners,

catches Helen's eye and makes smiling, subtle movements to

his watch or a look to the door to indicate he's clearly

ready to leave. On the receiving end, Helen, the gatekeeper

of their social propriety, indicates with equal subtlety:

"not yet."

As we MOVE AROUND the table we hear:

"Where's your husband on staff?" "My husband's an orthopod

at Northwestern." "I'm working on a new technique..."

"That's fascinating..." "That's quite a marvelous dress

you're wearing." "Do you like it? My husband says it's a

'four-fracture number."' "Honey." (A look from her husband.)
