Dr. Kimble, harvesting onions at an onion field, faces hostility from the other farm workers. A number of them are Mexican laborers who are suspicious about his presence - after all, he doesn't look like one of them. The workers are recruited to help fight a forest fire. When a pregnant woman starts to feel labor pains, the nurse discovers she can't have a natural delivery. They need an obstetrician to perform a cesarean section. But with fire all around them, and the roads blocked, it's impossible to get to a hospital in time.

Three months ago I had a wire from a sheriff east of El Paso. Transient he hustled out of town. Might have been Kimble. A possibility... Now suppose he's working his way west from crop to crop. Lettuce in Texas, carrots in New Mexico, oranges in Arizona... This is a typical pattern, Captain, following the crop. Might turn up in California. I could be there, waiting.
