    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (5)

      • When Flood activates his nitrous oxide, he has the same control panel as the one used in Bobby and Julius's SUV two episodes prior in "Lost Knight."

      • When Flood was getting ready to chase down Michael, the horizon in the background showed twilight on several occasion, whereas the exterior shots showed plenty of daylight.

      • The list of fashion businesses that KITT displays shows many with non-fashion names, and is actually a repeating loop. It also contains references to show staff, with associate producer Bruce Golin listed as an owner, and a "Blowhard, Inc." listed as belonging to "Larson, G.," a reference to series creator Glen A. Larson. Real life company MCA International is listed as belonging to Lew Wasserman, its chairman. At the time, they owned Universal, producers of Knight Rider. Additionally, the humorous names of "Iva Big Bum" and "I.P. Daly" are listed owners.

      • As the chase where Flood attacks Michael and KITT begins, a long shot shows a shadow-free road, but an immediate shot of KITT's rearview mirror show's Flood's car passing through a shadow-filled road.

      • Right at the ending scene where Michael goes out to KITT, you can see that the driver's side door is already open by looking through the passenger side window, but when the camera pans to the right to watch Michael go around the front of KITT (and the driver's side door is out of view), you hear the sound of the door opening.

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Michael: Maybe it's time you visit Tom O'Malley's grave and put some nice flowers out there. Oh, I got it: teach his wife how to play pinochle. Sit around and tell a few stories about good old Tom.
        Lewis: Hey, maybe you're not too big to be sitting on the floor, looking up at me.
        Michael: Now, it's about time you got mad. So get mad at the right guy, will you? Get mad at Grebs!

      • Lewis: (feels Devon's suit) That's not bad for off-the-rack.

      • KITT: The similarity of hockey and a war between various cavemen tribes on a frozen lake bears a very close parallel.

      • Michael: You girls have got a great business here. You deal with Grebs long enough, he'll pick you apart piece by piece.

      • Flood: You want Michael Knight or not?
        Grebs: You know I do, unless he's too tough for you.
        Flood: Don't push your luck, Grebs. Accidents can happen to anyone.

      • Michael: I'm gonna move in on every one of your accounts.
        Grebs: Get out of here before I move you out the window.

      • Michael: (getting out of the car) Be good!
        KITT: Be serious! I'm always good, Michael. You know that.

      • Lewis: You don't know much about this business, do you?
        Michael: Innocent people are dropping like flies, how much do I need to know?

    • NOTES (4)

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • When KITT displays a listing of fashion business, one owner is "Mr. Bill," a reference the Play-Doh character on Saturday Night Live.
