Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Trivia: When Skyler first shows Mike "The North Beach", the surfer who gets pulled under by the wave lets out the Wilhelm scream. This is a stock sound made famous by Ben Burtt when he featured it in multiple blockbuster films, including Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    • Goof: When Michael and Zoe are first driving down the beach, the green screen can be seen reflected in KITT's hood.

    • Goof: As Skyler leaves Mike to die in sea, we see KITT coming down the hill with the two surf boards on his roof. Next time we see KITT at the beach there are no boards.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Mike: How many times do I have to say it? Nothing happened.
      Sarah: How many times do I have to say it? I don't care. Your relationships are none of my business.
      Mike: I'm not having a relationship. Nothing happened.
      Zoe: At least nothing I remember.

    • Mike: KITT, how do you get up on a surfboard?
      KITT: You stand up on it.

  • NOTES (3)


    • Mike and Zoe have undercover names of Devon and Bonnie. This is a nod to the original "Knight Rider" series. Devon Miles was the director of FLAG and Bonnie Barstow was KITT's mechanic.

    • The two support-robots in the lab are named "Lisa" and "Katie". Both names are related to information-technolgy:

      Lisa was the name of an 6502-assembler for the Apple II as well as the name of the precursor to the Apple Macintosh.

      Katie is the name of the girlfriend of the KDE-dragon Konqi.

    • James Bond:

      K.I.T.T.'s submersible mode in the ocean and his driving up onto the beach past a startled kid building a sand castle is reminiscent of the 1976 Lotus Esprit S1 from the 1977 James Bond movie "The Spy Who Loved Me" which changed into a submarine, and then changed back into a car, drove out of the ocean, and up onto the beach past startled onlookers.
