  • Trivia

    • After KITT, Michael and Angie jump into the back of the flatbed truck, you can see that the truck is not in motion in the background. However, when Michael gets out, the truck is moving again.

    • When KITT gets positioned between the attackers in the truck and the wedding reception guests, you can easily see the tiny special effects charges placed on the body to mimic gunfire bouncing off.

    • KITT's "Auto Cruise" designator flips styles between the more angular-lettered style seen in the credits and pilot episode, and the slightly more round-lettered version used throughout the season.

    • We clearly see the license number of the FLAG semi's cab: 1U13265

    • When Michael has KITT plot route to the Waco area from Houston, the course takes a roughly east/northeast direction, but Waco is actually more north/northwest of Houston.

    • Throughout the episode there is reference to it taking place in and around Houston, Texas. However, the land surrounding terrain is more of a mountain foothills/edge of the desert terrain, which is not even close to what surrounds Houston, but is rather several hundred miles west of Houston at its closest.
