Detective Kelly: So, financially, you’re not going to be hurting after this, are you? I mean, she was worth quite a bit of money.
Dr. Richard Kimble: Are you suggesting that I killed my wife? Are you saying that I crushed her skull and that I shot her? How dare you! When I came home, there was a man in my house. I fought with this man. He had a mechanical arm. You find this man. You find this man.

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week is falsely accused, suggested by churnage. Today’s suggestion by David Proenza.
Trivia: According to producer Roy Huggins, Gerard’s line in response to Richard Kimble’s claim of innocence (“I didn’t kill my wife”) was originally read in the script as, “That isn’t my problem.” But at the request of Tommy Lee Jones, it was changed to, “I don’t care.”
Dialogue On Dialogue: This is a false accusation wrapped in intimation.
