This is the first time KITT is severely damaged in the series after colliding with Goliath. This is also the first time it is mentioned if how KITT indestructible shell is made using a series of chemicals. In the pilot, it was explained as "a finish bonded into the molecular structure of a new substance" and explained that it wasn't metal or fiberglass. See more »


(at around 17 mins) Michael (David Hasselhoff) is driving with a woman. When the shot switches to a longer shot, not only does Michael - who's impersonating Garthe with a small beard and mustache in the closer shot - lose both aspects of that facial hair, but it's obvious that the driver and passenger are both different people. When the shot switches back to the closer shot again, it's the original people again. See more »


KITT: Michael, I'm getting a reading about a mile further down the road.
Michael Knight: Alright, what you got?
KITT: People, an RV, a large plane and - Michael, that brute, that misserable mechanical masher, he's there too. Three to one he won't brutalize me again. Four to one!
Michael Knight: Ok pal. We're on.
