Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) was convicted of murder but escaped before he could be incarcerated. Now he's on the lam and out to clear his name, while a massive manhunt for him is led by Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) and his fellow U.S. Marshals.
U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones) replies - with his own gun pointed at him - that he doesn't care that Dr. Richard Kimble claims he's innocent of killing his wife. A defining scene in a very good movie.
[narrating] We sat and drank with the sun on our shoulders and felt like free men. Hell, we could have been tarring the roof of one of our own houses. We were the lords of all creation. As for Andy - he spent that break hunkered in the shade, a strange little smile on his face, watching us drink his beer.
[narrating] I wish I could tell you that Andy fought the good fight, and the Sisters let him be. I wish I could tell you that - but prison is no fairy-tale world. He never said who did it, but we all knew.
