    • Clem: Well Joe and Hoss are in there. You just wouldn’t believe the ruckus they’ve stirred up. Three days ago it was peaceful as ducks on a millpond and now it's more like a sackful of bobcats!

    • Ben: (about Hoss and Joe) Why couldn't I have had two daughters.

    • Hoss: Ladies and gentlemen, now you heard all of that hogwash, now listen to mine a while.

    Notes (4)

    • German episode title: "Die Wahl des Jahres", meaning "The Election of the Year".

    • David Canary does not appear in this episode.

    • Featured Cartwright: Joe and Hoss

    • This was a 10th season episode, but someone in the decision making process liked this episode enough to include it in the original 260 pack of episodes in syndication.

    Trivia (1)

    • The citizens of Virginia City counted the votes before the polls closed and it was a dead tie. The last person to not vote was Ben Cartwright, who flipped a coin to decide. Made for great comedy, but a little bit unconstitutional.
