For The Love Of Mike
The team watches KITT burn rubber down the street and out of sight. Asian Henchman worries that "whoever was driving that car" can ID them, but Pointedly Evil is busy expositioning that they have 24 hours before law enforcement is "all over" them; their mission is "to deliver Prometheus," so they're going to get "the girl."
And now, the obligatory civilian-stunned-by-KITT's-capabilities scene. Drink! On a mountain road, a trucker drinks coffee and listens to Christian radio. In his sideview, he sees KITT approaching; then KITT whips past him and the trucker says, "Whoa."
Updated credits. The super-intense "the story of a man...who does not exist" narration by Richard Basehart (who played Foundation For Law And Government founder Wilton Knight in the original pilot) didn't make it into the new version, more's the pity.
Stanford. Sarah Graiman is using a whiteboard full of differential equations and a giant bubbly screensaver to illustrate a lecture on...nanophysics? Hell if I know. A student raises his hand and begins peppering her with irrelevant questions about whether she's working with her father "on this" and how he heard her father's working for the Pentagon. Sarah snips that if the guy can find her father, he can ask him himself, but until then, "try to stay on-topic, okay?" When we spin off Science Without Pity, she's my first hire as a mod. Anyway: she's estranged from her father. Scene.
