  • Trivia

    • When KITT is in ski mode, going between the two cars, you can see that the driver's side window is down. However, before and after that, the window is up.

    • When KITT left The Blond to pick up Michael, the Auto Cruise light on the dash was yellow instead of the usual green.

    • The water-filled tank Devon was placed in clearly had a few inches of air at the top.

  • Quotes

    • RC: You gotta give KITT his moment in the spotlight, too.
      Michael: You know, you're right, RC. KITT, since Templeton is history, we've got an unemployed tiger on our hands. . .
      KITT: On second thought, Michael, I think the only magic I'll perform is a disappearing act.
      (KITT quickly drives off stage)

    • The Blond: Did you say you were not married?
      KITT: That's right.
      The Blond: Oh, why not?
      KITT: You might say I haven't yet met my match.
      The Blond: Oh, well, what kind of match are you looking for?
      KITT: Oh, something very stylish, preferably in red, loaded with sophisticated software, total artificial intelligence, fully padded seats, removable top, with an adaptive megabyte system that can interface for hours.
      The Blond: You animal! What kind of girl do you think I am?
      (she kicks against KITT's tire and leaves)
      KITT: What did I say?

    • (After Michael and RC3 rescue Devon from the water-filled tank)
      Devon: Aw, bloody! I've ruined my best suit!
      (Michael and RC3 break into laughter)
      Devon: It's a good suit.

    • Devon: It's one thing to order an execution, quite another to witness it, isn't it, Ian?

    • Templeton: While I assure you I've been working on it, Mr. Knight, to date being in two places at one time is a state that has eluded me.
