... One of our favorite movie speeches. Tommy Lee Jones as Deputy U.S. Marshal Samuel Gerard takes control of the hunt for escaped convicted wife killer Dr. Richard Kimble in The Fugitive and this is what he says: Alright, listen up, people. Our fugitive has been on the run for ninety minutes. Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of six miles. What I want from each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up at fifteen miles. Your fugitive's name is Dr. Richard Kimble. Go get him.
