Knight Rider “Trust Doesn't Rust” (part 4 of 4)

Now Knight and KITT are chasing Tony and Bonnie in KARR. In another Kontinuity Moment, just as the scene shifts to Bonnie and Tony inside KARR, you can still see the feet of Hasselhoff’s stuntman through the back window of the car, even though Knight’s supposed to be driving KITT right now.

KITT pursues KARR at high speeds on some twisty roads. KARR taunts KITT, claiming that he “can’t triumph over a prototype! Desist your pursuit!” Sticks and stones, and all that.

KITT and Knight keep up the chase. KARR causes an accident, then leads them into a residential area. There, KARR almost runs over a mother and her two kids, then he jumps the curb and cuts through a park, narrowly missing a woman pushing a baby carriage, and also a dude trying to get a tan while wearing jeans and a long-sleeve suede sweatshirt. That last guy probably could have been run over without negatively impacting humanity, but alas, he gets out of the way just in time.

’Course, he does look like a ginger; maybe this is the only way he can tan.

Knight and KITT break off the chase to avoid any civilian casualties, and with that, we cut to commercial.
