  • I Love Jason Bateman!

    I only watched this episode to see Jason Bateman and it was awesome! I cant say im a fan of the show but this was a great episode! Of course it was the 80's so it was kind of cheesy! but thats what made it enjoyable and fun to watch! It did seem kind of odd at how Doug (Jason Bateman) was like nothing after he was saved from that bomb that was about to go off! Afterwards when he was in the car he was like laughing and enjoying himself, but in that cool car,who wouldnt be happy? lol! Great episode!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • Though the chemical formula for nitrous oxide of N2O indicates its molecular structure is comprised ofthree atoms, KITT displays a molecular diagram withten atoms.

    • When Bobby and Julius robbed the demolition site, the Jeep had a "Bob's Plumbing Supplies" logo on each of the front doors. When Michael and KITT pursued them, the logos were gone, but when the thieves ditched the Jeep, the decals re-appeared.

    • The concept of the criminals waiting at a business that sponsors a youth baseball team to find a member of the team is a plot hole. While they got lucky that the business belonged to Doug's family (a fact they did not know) and would naturally be around the business, to expect a team member to hang around a sponsoring business is faulty logic.

    • When Doug meets KITT in the flower shop, he leaves KITT's door slightly ajar. But when Michael runs in, the door is fully closed.

    • When Doug left the house at 4:55am, it was barely dawn. With the shot of Michael outside, there is a lot more daylight than there should be for that early in the morning.

    • A power line tower that is shown breaking apart before falling onto KITT was obviously a model, because moments later, exterior shots of the KITT and the surrounding area shows no power line towers in the immediate area, only a portion of a power line prop and some wires next to the car.

    • In the beginning, when Devon is giving his speech, he walks away from the microphone and the gathering begins to cheer before he's finished speaking.

  • QUOTES (8)

  • NOTES (3)


    • The main premise of this episode is a play on Steven Spielberg's 1982 film, E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, and the working title was "KITT, Phone Home," a play on the phrase "E.T., phone home." In the episode, a confused KITT even mistakenly refers to Doug as "Elliot," the name of the boy who befriends E.T.
