Michael poses as the boyfriend of a model while investigating a murder and the theft of costume jewellery that may not be cut glass. The case takes Michael and K.I.T.T. to Mexico City, and Devon and April also find themselves undercover.

After flying back to California, Michael and K.I.T.T. encounter trouble with Customs -- they work over the car "with a fine-tooth comb, and won't take no for an answer."
This is the first episode in which we learn that K.I.T.T. is afraid of flying, a character trait we later learn was programmed by Bonnie (in SKY KNIGHT).
Jo Ann Pflug was a regular on Glen Larson's popular series The Fall Guy. Wendy Kilbourne went on to co-star in the radio-based crime-drama Midnight Caller. Rene Assa also appears in the episode KNIGHT BY A NOSE.
SCRIPT TO SCREEN:
Originally, when confronted with Nina about not existing until 2 years before, Michael pretended to be drunk. In the episode he merely says "Could've fooled me."
The scene in which Michael pieces together Bernie's plan originally included April. Her part was dramatically reduced in this episode -- she only features as a guest at Bernie's party in Mexico City.
Perhaps the biggest difference between script and screen is the climax. Originally K.I.T.T. stopped Bernie from escaping all by himself. In the episode Michael hops in and does the driving, although K.I.T.T. still says "You can always bank on me."
