Episode Quotes
Mike: Sorry buddy, I think this is gonna hurt.
KITT: Mike? What exactly are you going to do?
(Mike slams the brakes ahead of an SUV)

KITT: That seemed quite irrational.
Mike: You clearly don't know much about women, do you?
KITT: On the contrary, my database is quite extensive --
Mike: KITT, shut up!

Sarah: They're still back there!
KITT: That is affirmative.
Sarah: Um, are you going to slow down?
KITT: Negative.
Sarah: Oh, God! What are you doing?!
KITT: Eluding our tail.
Sarah: What? Are you crazy?
KITT: I do not believe so.



Episode Goofs
When KITT picks Sarah up from Stanford, the window on the driver's side switches from being rolled down to being rolled up throughout the scene.



Cultural References
References to the original Knight Rider series are made in the beginning of the episode when the men at Graiman's house go through his garage. There the camera pans past the original steering wheel from the Knight Industries Two Thousand, as well as the KNIGHT license plate.

The casino that Sarah finds Mike in is the Montecito, which is the name of the fictional casino in NBC's Las Vegas.
