  • The ultimate weapon against crime, the Viper Defender is the city's only hope to stop a crime syndicate, the 'Outfit', from destroying the city. However, the Viper is just too fast and too powerful for all the police officers recruited to drive it. Michael Payton is avoiding arrest and flips car. Strand hears about the accident and has Payton pronounced dead at the scene. The police commissioner orders that Payton's memory be erased and Joseph Payne Astor is born. Joe becomes the new driver and under the supervision of the Viper designer, Julian Wilkes, they set out to take the Outfit down.moreless

    • Wilkes: How's it handling? Madison: Still a little jittery. Better than last month. Wilkes: I don't see any mechanical problems. Think the only thing jittery is behind the wheel!

    • Wilkes: (about Madison) If he could drive half as good as he can bitch, we'd be fine.

    • Wilkes: The city council may scrap the project, because of one minor design flaw – my car needs a driver. Some egocentric musclehead with quick reflexes to make my life miserable and my car run.

    • Elizabeth: Your name is Joe Astor, you're with the police. Joe: A cop? Don't I have a real job?

    • Elizabeth: I've got to get back to work. Joe: Thought I was your work? Elizabeth: You're part of it. Joe: The most interesting part? Elizabeth: Maybe. Joe: Come on, all women think about is changing a man's personality. I'm a model to customize here.
