  • Trivia

    • Directly after Michael escapes the warehouse explosion, he's in the semi talking about what just happened, as indicated by his use of the word tonight. Yet, a shot of the semi driving right before the conversation is during the daytime.

    • When RC3 crosses the river, you can see that his lower pant legs are completely soaked. However, when he reaches the road a minute later, his clothes are totally dry.

    • When Becker's henchmen toss Michael into the hole in the ground, you can see a pair of hands appear from the hole to catch him.

    • Michael and RC went to check out Route 107. California State Route 107 is less than five miles long and connects the cities of Torrance and Longdale. Las Flores is over 500 miles to the north, near Redding.

    • After RC3 tackles a shooter, Michael gives him a return 'thumbs up' while facing the driver window, but RC was off to the side of the passenger side window.

    • When RC3 goes after the off-road buggy on his bike, he comes to a road and calls Michael and says he doesn't know which way they went. KITT says that the buggy is going south. RC3 should have known they would be heading south as they were headed to Mexico from the US. Heading north on the road would have taken them back where they came from.

    • When Michael is attacked and captured by Becker's henchmen, KITT says that he needs Michael to keep talking via the com-link so he can pin-point his location, though there are several other episodes where this isn't the case.

  • Quotes

    • Michael: (to Federal Agent) This is a federal operation. Whatever happens, I stay out of it. I know, I know!
      Federal Agent: That's what you said the last time!

    • Michael: One town down, four to go. KITT, if we don't hit soon, we'll find ourselves racing Becker to catch him.
      KITT: If you don't mind, I'd prefer capture Mr. Becker before the starter drops his flag.
      Michael: Well, I can't say I blame ya. I mean, we are up against some pretty stiff competition.
      KITT: Now just one moment, Michael!

    • Michael: Bonnie, run a search on any other race that uses Baja-type equipment.
      Bonnie: (sighs) Something tells me we'll be setting KITT up for a little off-road action.

    • KITT: We're boxed in!
      Michael: I noticed that!

    • (after Michael has been dropped into a deep hole)
      KITT: Michael, are you all right?
      Michael: Oh, yeah, I'm fine. I wouldn't rule out brain damage, though.

    • Michael: After the race, I plan to come back and demand equal time.
      Anna-Lucia: You won't have to demand.
