The Fugitive Drinking Game 3

Since I’m really this bored (or boring, your call), and I decided to watch The Fugitive, I tried to look up a drinking game for it. There wasn’t one that I could find.

So I’ve decided to make one up. To wit:


– Any time Harrison Ford asserts his innocence.

– Any time Harrison Ford leaps off of something.

– Any time Harrison Ford steals anything.

– Any time Tommy Lee Jones mocks one of his subordinates.

– Any time a minor character is killed off.

– Any time a law enforcement figure walks right by Harrison Ford and fails to recognize him.

– Any time Harrison Ford attempts to appear hispanic (and thereby looks like way more of a gringo).

– Any time Tommy Lee Jones tells anyone to shut up.

– Any time there is a flashback to the night of the murder.

– If you’ve ever lived in Chicago: Any time you recognize a Chicago in-joke (reference to Kitty O’Shea’s, ambulance service called Daley’s, etc.)

– Any time the CPD takes the rational position of shooting at anything that moves.

– Any time the early 90’s lack of technology becomes readily apparent (a phone call isn’t instantly traced, someone doesn’t have an answering machine, etc.)


– Any time any character says the words “One-armed man”

– When Harrison Ford performs a medical procedure on himself (because you’ll need it)

– Any time Tommy Lee Jones says, “Listen up, people!”

– Any time it becomes blatantly obvious that the actor playing Sykes actually has two arms.


– For the duration of Tommy Lee Jones’s “house’ speech.

– Any time the director sets up a scene to make the audience think the cops are after Harrison Ford, but they’re actually after someone else.

– If you don’t give two shits about the whole drug-approval subplot.

I guarantee that this game will make you pretty fuckin’ drunk if you even follow the rules a little bit.

    “The adventures of Dr. Richard Kimble, an innocent victim of blind justice, falsely convicted for the murder of his wife; reprieved by Fate when a train wreck freed him en route to the death house; freed him to hide in lonely desperation, to change his identity, to toil at many jobs; freed him to search for a one-armed man he saw leave the scene of the crime; freed him to run before the relentless pursuit of the police lieutenant obsessed with his capture…



    I loved watching that show on A&E when I was a kid. My dad’s favorite show of all time. Harrison Ford is no David Janssen…
