Sarah: KITT, self-programming's not possible. KITT: It was possible in my original prototype. Mike: What prototype? I thought you were a one-of-a-kind. Sarah: Yeah, KITT, what are you talking about? KITT: I am talking about KARR, Sarah. Mike: There's another Mustang out there and its named car? KITT: Not c-a-r, Michael. K-A-R-R. Knight Auto-Cybernetic Roving Robotic-Exoskeleton. And he was not a Mustang. He was a cybernetic exoskeleton programmed for self-preservation. Mike: A killer robot. KITT: By the time he was decommissioned, he was more cyborg than robot. Mike: You wouldn't happen to have a picture of this thing, would you? (KITT shows plans of KARR's schematics on view screen) Mike: Wow. And I thought you were cool, KITT.
