    Notes (3)

    • The German episode title is "Die Helios-Nadel", meaning "The Helios Pin". The French episode title is "L'Or des Aztèques", meaning "Aztec Gold". The Czech episode title is "Vůz plný zlata", meaning "A Vehicle Filled With Gold".

    • A cut sequence saw Michael being forced to take the Helios entrance exam. Told sarcastically to use every resource at his disposal, Michael cheats and uses K.I.T.T. instead.

    • ORIGINAL TITLE: "Survival of the Fittest"

    Trivia (9)

    • Toward the end of the episode when Michael and KITT chase Deauville, there is a wide shot where KITT is jumping, and you can see the side-mount camera at the rear of KITT.

    • Michael twice refers to KITT as "Knight Industry Two-Thousand," though the series clearly states the acronym stands for "Knight Industries Two-Thousand."

    • Michael 'rescues' Bonnie from Helios at dawn, but the short shadows of KITT give away that the scene was shot near midday.

    • The licence plate to Devon's orange-red Mercedes convertible, previously seen in "No Big Thing," has switched to 1E59885.

    • In this episode KITT is able to analyze an occupant's blood/vitals with a cuff device fitted to the arm. The only episode this gadget is used, in later episodes KITT can scan people's vitals from afar.
