Splatted food on the convict's face, which is the instigation of the jail fight (first it's a single splat by the corner of his mouth, then next shot it is two splats, one on his cheek, the other on his forehead). See more »


Devon Miles: Reston? Frank Reston?
Frank Reston: Fifth amendment, old boy. I'll have the fifth amendment. That's a great name for a booze, huh?
Devon Miles: I'm Devon Miles.
Frank Reston: That's an ok name for a liqueur I guess, but not for a real booze.

Knight Rider: No Big Thing
14 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A crooked county police force, operating behind the iron fist of a corrupt judge, arrest Devon (Edward Mulhare) for a wrongful traffic violation and break out his headlight for extra kicks. What these bastards don't plan on is a supercar which can sustain bullets, drive backwards efficiently, and leap over a truck (through the trailer without a scratch) when a diesel coming towards it offers those inside the vehicle little hope of surviving. Devon was on his way through this Podunk part of Texas to meet an investigative reporter, Frank Reston (Jim Haynie), who had been spending a lot of time and effort to blow the lid of the county of Lyndhurst Flats, specifically Judge Roland S Paxton (Logan Ramsey; The Beast Within), Sgt Wallace (Ted Markland) and Officer Rex Saunders (Grainger Hines) for the immoral use of the power in their possession. Devon is put away in a correctional facility, with Paxton wanting Wallace and Saunders to kill him because he can link them to the death of Frank (after beating him, Frank fell unconscious and never awoke). An escape thanks to two other inmates may be Devon's only safe method of eluding certain death. Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) will learn of Paxton's abuse of power from Frank's ex-wife, Carol (Mary-Margaret Humes), as they pursue Devon's whereabouts while evading the county police out to stop them. Plenty of stunts and witty barbs from KITT make "No Big Thing" yet another entertaining episode. The novelty of Devon becoming a temporary jailbird and helping stage a "great escape" will probably be what most audiences will remember most about this particular episode. That and the protracted chase through a long grove. Seeing Devon slug Paxton is also quite amusing...
