While driving a laundry truck for a women's prison, David is taken hostage by three inmates who are bent on escaping the reign of the brutal prison warden. The authorities, believing that David helped to orchestrate the escape, set out to capture all four of them. The three prisoners force David to travel through dangerous terrain, which is made even more difficult when one of the women goes into labor.

Ending sequence

  • Hulk out 1: Somehow being caught under a rockslide, and then foolishly exposing one of his hands on the mountainside so that a big, heavy rock smashes it
  • Hulk out 2: Being attacked by some mean cops who handcuff him even though he has told them his hand is broken, and who then let him flail around so that he falls on his bad hand


The “yellow dissolve” effect used within the opening montage from the pilot episode was used to cover the metamorphosis of the Hulk back to Banner after the scene in the quarry.
