    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The helmet Devon wears as he rides away on his motorcycle at the end of the episode is the same helmet Michael used in the episode "Slammin' Sammy's Stunt Show Spectacular."

      • As KITT and Michael escort Kelly up Widow's Mountain, the reflections on KITT's driver side front wing show a dent.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • KITT: Every time I interface with agency computers, I come away wanting to count my circuits.

      • Michael: KITT, talk to me...KITT, are you alright?!
        KITT: I've never been so humiliated in my life! Watching that two-wheeled tarantula run circles around me. I told you my tires have no traction!

      • Michael: How did the Foundation get involved in a tough sport like motor racing?
        April: Well, you may not believe this, but Devon happens to be quite a fan.
        Michael: (eyes Devon) You're right. I don't believe it.

    • NOTES (1)

      • The French episode titles are "La Victoire à tout prix" ("Victory at Any Cost") and "Le Démon de la vitesse" ("Speed Demon"). The Czech episode title is "Nebezpečná rychlost", meaning "Dangerous Speed".

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • A female reporter jokingly refers to the race as a "Quasi-motocross," to which her male partner replies, "I had a hunch you were going to say that." The lines are a reference to Victor Hugo's 1831 novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
