  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Mike: KITT, I need the time and location for the pick-up.
      KITT: Relax, man. I got this.
      Mike: Cute.

    • Alex: (To Mike) He almost got the drop on you.
      Mike: Almost only counts in hand grenades and horseshoes.

    • (Mike has been telling the truth about everything and everyone is getting upset with him for what he is saying)
      Torres: What did you say?
      Mike: I don't know, can the poisoned guy get a break here?

    • Torres: Tell me where they are or I'll remove all your spark plugs.
      KITT: I don't have spark plugs.

    • Mike:(About KITT morphing) Yeah, that does not get old.

    • Sarah: You should get poisoned more often. May be the only way we're going to get a day off.
      Michael: Funny, I was considering poisoning myself right now, actually. KITT...
      KITT: Yes, Michael?
      Michael: Initiate beer run program.
      KITT: Michael, my database contains no such program and it is illegal to have open alcoholic beverage containers on the beach.
      Michael: I'm joking, KITT.
      KITT: Your attempt at humor would suggest that you are well on the way to recovery.
      Michael: What do you mean attempt at humor?

    • Michael: Do you know that Billy calls you the Asian Sensation behind your back?
      Billy: Dude!
      Michael: Can you pretend I didn't just say that?
      Zoe: (smiling at Billy) Truth serum is fun!

    • Sarah: According to this, we're not dealing with one poison, but a combination of toxins. Most predominantly, hyoscine... which acts as a hallucinogen and truth serum.
      Zoe: Truth serum? (turns and smiles at Michael) You ever fantasize about Sarah in a Catholic school girl outfit?
      Michael: No.
      Zoe: Hmmm... clearly not working yet.

  • NOTES (3)


    • KITT: Do or do not. There is no try.

      This is a reference to Yoda in George Lucas's movie, Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980). During his Jedi training, Luke Skywalker replies to Yoda's instructions with "I'll give it a try." Yoda replies, "No. Try not. Do or do not. There is no try."
