Actress Janine Turner, on her guest starring roles on Eighties' television: "I was always the victim of the week, yelling 'Oh, help me!' just before Knight Rider or The A-Team would come to rescue me." (Entertainment Weekly, May 3, 1991)
In a pursuit situation, Michael and K.I.T.T. first access the police band frequency to get a fix on the getaway car. They then compute every available escape route and plan the most probable point of intercept. They can't actually isolate the target vehicle among the thousands of others, but generally the escape car is breaking the speed limit, making it stick out like a sore thumb.
One of the models at Martin's club wears a "Grimaldi original" design swimsuit -- an in-joke reference to co-producer Gino Grimaldi.
Robert O'Reilly previously appeared in the second season episode A GOOD KNIGHT'S WORK.
SCRIPT TO SCREEN:
Devon and Karen originally used the Latin phrase "caveat emptor," which translates as "Let the buyer beware." In the episode they use the phrase "cave canem" - "beware of the dog."
Some cut scenes include Michael using K.I.T.T.'s capabilities to become a member of Martin's country club; Cavanaugh and Jodi planning their escape at the parking structure; and Michael and Karen talking over breakfast and espresso -- she lived in Rome for a year, studying law enforcement and terrorism.
The dog's name is Scruffy.
