A Select Scene From Knight Rider, Starring Socrates

EXT. DUSTY ROAD – DAY

The trademark KITT car speeds past obstacles, giving chase to an unmarked four door sedan.

INT. KITT CAR – CONTINUOUS

KITT: “These criminals aren’t going to get away, Socrates.”

SOCRATES: “Hmm. Criminals.”

KITT: “What is it, Socrates?”

SOCRATES: “What IS crime, really? Aren’t criminals simply called criminals since they do not go along with the ideological status quo?”

EXT. DUSTY ROAD – DAY

KITT swerves to continue the chase, driving up the back of a parked trailer truck, CRASHING through a palate of empty boxes, then comes crashing back down to Earth — still close behind the fishtailing sedan.

INT. KITT CAR – CONTINUOUS

KITT: “No time for philosophical questions, Socky. Shall I use my advanced anchor technology to stop these baddies in their tracks!?”

SOCRATES: “Philosophy knows nothing of time, Kitt my friend.”

KITT: “I understand. But- Hold on for evasive action!”

EXT. DUSTY ROAD – DAY

KITT jumps over a ravine, CRASHING down to the ground, doing a full-on 360 degree spin and then regains traction…speeding after the sedan.

INT. KITT CAR – CONTINUOUS

SOCRATES: “And yet…isn’t action merely the state of rebelling against inaction?”

The car SCREECHES to a halt.

KITT: “Out.”

SOCRATES: “I’m sorry?”

KITT: “Out of the car.”

The door opens, automatically. Socrates looks at the car and the open door with sadness.

SOCRATES: “Are you sure you wouldn’t rather talk this through?”

KITT: “No, Socky. No, I wouldn’t.”

    Although I grant you your creative license, I think this scene would played out differently. As Soccy would have said: “An un-examined life is not worth living.” He would have examined how cool it is to drive around in KITT and decided it was worth it!. Go Greeks!

    Wordmaven – Your observation of Socky is completely flawed.

    Paul, you may be right, I have an unrestrained attraction to Greek philosophizers.
