Michael Knight[edit]

Michael: Yo, Gingo!

Michael (speaking to K.I.T.T.): Take over, Buddy

Michael (speaking to K.I.T.T.): Keep your scanners peeled, pal!

Devon Miles[edit]

(Upon capturing Colonel Kincaid)
Devon: Michael, don't you realize what you have done? You've caused me a great deal of difficulty. You've embarrassed me, you've...
Michael: Devon, meet Colonel Kincaid.
Devon: You saved me a great deal of paperwork.

(Explaining K.I.T.T's primary directive to Michael)
Devon: It wouldn't harm you, I assure you. Its primary function is the preservation of human life. Your life.
Michael: By "me" you mean anyone driving this thing?
Devon: No, I mean you specifically. You: Michael Arthur Long

Devon: I would have preferred you to let me open the door first. However, as you see, no harm has come to the car.

Devon: Well, Wilton. He's doing everything you said he would. What have you gotten me into?

Michael & K.I.T.T.[edit]

Michael: K.I.T.T?.
K.I.T.T.: Yes Michael?
Michael: Shut up.

Michael: Keep your scanners peeled.
K.I.T.T.: Right away Michael.

(Upon destroying K.A.R.R.)
K.I.T.T.: If I say yes, will you promise we'll never have to do that again?
Michael: Never say never pal. Never say never.

K.I.T.T.: If you're going to go through with this, may I suggest you permit me to activate the Turbo Boost?
Michael: The what?
K.I.T.T.: Never mind! Allow me to demonstrate!

(End of season 4, episode 12)
K.I.T.T.: Where are we going, Michael?
Michael: We're going home, K.I.T.T. To family... We're going to the Foundation.


K.I.T.T.: I'm the voice of the Knight Industries Two Thousand's microprocessor. K-I-T-T for easy reference, K.I.T.T. if you prefer.

K.I.T.T.: Be careful Michael.

K.I.T.T.: Michael, look out!


K.A.R.R.: I am the Knight Automated Roving Robot, K.A.R.R. if you prefer; I am the prototype of the car of the future.

K.A.R.R.: I am the prototype of the car of the future. What you saw was merely an inferior production line model, a pale copy of the original.

K.A.R.R.: If I am destroyed... so shall you be!

K.A.R.R.: I will not go back to the slammer!

K.A.R.R.: I have no eggs. Perhaps you can direct me to a chicken?

K.A.R.R.: I have checked my data on basic human desires, therefore i understand your needs. You wish to eat. You wish to drink. You wish to reproduce. Which one first?

K.I.T.T. (describing the Knight 4000): There’s nothing worse than a smart-ass automobile.
