    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (6)

      • After KITT releases Michael to parasail onto the retreat grounds, there's a shot of him parking alongside a road overseeing the retreat. This is actually a reverse shot of him pulling away after Michael tells him to open the retreat's front gates.

      • In the final scene, when Sheba is walking towards Michael, Bonnie, and KITT, you can see that she is not wearing any sort of collar. However, when she growls during the close-up, she is suddenly wearing a chain-type collar.

      • When KITT tells Michael where the safe is, the red dot is blinking in a corner of the room that has no windows or doors. However, the cabinet that Michael goes to is right next to a very large window.

      • Bonnie briefly looks at a photo of Bianca before Michael takes it to see what is written on back. He hands the photo back to her, but when she looks at it again, it is a subtly different picture, with the positioning of Bianca's neck and head different and only one hand of the man in the foreground visible, instead of two.

      • In disguise at the Retreat, Michael claims he never drinks, though he's sitting next to Monica, the contact he met that same day at a bar.

      • In the final scene when KITT is chasing Bianca (by himself), Michael's finger is shown pressing the Turbo Boost button when KITT jumps over her 4-wheeler.

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Bianca: If you're lying, if you're up to something, I'm going to make you very sorry.
        Michael: Somehow, I believe you.

      • Michael: What's so great about beautiful women, running around in bikinis, catering to your every need?
        Bonnie: I don't know. You tell me.
        Michael: You got a couple hours?

      • Bonnie: The Foundation has actually considering adopting Sheba as a pet.
        KITT: You have to be kidding!
        Michael: Hey, we have a KITT, why not a cat?
        (Sheba growls)
        KITT: Very funny, Michael. Very funny.

      • Michael: KITT, I know I will be asking a lot, but can you make me into a brilliant computer scientist?
        KITT: Michael, that's not asking a lot, that's asking for a miracle.

      • KITT: Now let me get this straight. One: We are on our way to the beach.
        Michael: Right.
        KITT: Two: When we get to the beach, you are going to put a parachute on your back and secure a towing line to my rear bumper.
        Michael: So far, you're batting a thousand.
        KITT: That's what worries me. Three: when I get the word...
        Michael: (interrupting) Grab the sun...
        KITT: Grab the sun, I'm to race down the beach until I get enough speed to make you airborne.
        Michael: That's right. It's called parasailing.
        KITT: Wrong! It's called total insanity!

    • NOTES (4)

      • The French episode title is "La Retraite de Miss Missile", meaning "Miss Missile's Retreat". The Czech episode title is "Víkendové sny", meaning "Weekend Dreams".

      • In syndicated reruns, a scene where KITT tells Michael that the terrain immediately around The Retreat is unsuitable for Turbo Boosting is deleted, though a later scene with Michael referring to that statement remains.

      • Music: Wham's "Careless Whisper" (cover version)

      • Ann Turkel's character of Bianca is very similar to Adrianne Margeaux, the character she had previously played in the second season's "Soul Survivor" and "Goliath Returns."
