  • Trivia

    • Carascas doesn't notice the oddity of having just heard Devon's voice giving the fake radio report when he turns on the TV and sees him giving a news report.

    • When KITT scans August Hollenbeck's vitals, he claims he has a weak pulse, but the lowest number in his scan is 125, which would be a very fast pulse.

  • Quotes

    • Michael (over the com-link): KITT?
      KITT: Are you alright, Michael?
      Michael: Yeah, if you consider being locked in a six by six, filthy room alright, I'm doing great.

    • KITT: (on his red disguise) I'm the Knight Industries Two Thousand, not a tomato on wheels.

    • KITT: (on dealing with an armed man) What are you planning, Michael?
      Michael: (stereotypical Asian accent) Old, Oriental surgical procedure.

  • Notes
