The opening narration: 'Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.'' This narration doesn't actually appear in the opening credits until the 3rd episode "Good Day at White Rock," in syndication this episode would be considered #4 due to the original two-hour pilot "Knight of the Phoenix" being split in to two parts to create two separate episodes, "Knight of the Phoenix, Part I" and "Part II."

I didn't steal my car.
Oh I suppose you want me to believe that it drove itself over here and picked you up?
