  • Trivia

    • The (external) sets of the Springville Court House and surrounding town streets are quite clearly the same ones used for Hazzard, lightly redressed – names on buildings have been changed and the streets muddied up, but the layout and design is clearly identical.

    • At the beginning of the story, when Bo and Luke are by the lake with the girls (who go on to rob them), the General Lee clearly has no roll cage (particularly clear in the shots when Luke and his girl are in the back of the General). When they take off, in the nude, after the girls and crash into Rosco's patrol car, the roll cage has suddenly returned.

    • On the opening teaser, Rosco (in his office) says "It seems that the boys have run into a... a little trouble", to which Uncle Jesse asks "Like what?". Although similar dialogue was used in the story, this version of the dialogue was not used in the actual episode.

    • For the first time "Possom on a gum bush" is used by Enos when he sees Bo & Luke in a squad car.

    • Luke mentions "Cripple Creek". Tom Wopat recorded a cover of the song "Up on Cripple Creek"

    • If you look closely, Luke's deputy shirt is different throughout the episode. (the pockets are different)

    • Early in the episode when Bo and Luke are making out with the two girls you can see there is no role cage in the General, but when they leave the lake there is one in there.

  • Quotes

    • Rosco: I'm giving you a ticket for overtime parking.
      Luke: Thanks.
      Bo: Thanks, Rosco. You know that's a small price to pay for not having to be your deputy no more.

    • Bo: All right, hold it, Marlow! You pull that trigger and you and your friends are gonna go higher and wider than a moonshot.

    • Bo: (about to jump across a truck) I hope you have a pilot's license, Luke.

  • Notes

    • In the scene where Bo and Luke are deputized, the recording of Rosco's laugh is the same one that would be used at the end of the closing credits for most of the episodes of the show's run, starting with the final episode of this season.

    • Norman Alden would return as Chief Lacy a few episodes later in The Ghost of the General Lee.

    • Leo Gordon would return a few episodes later in The Meeting.

    • Stella Parton is country singing superstar Dolly Parton's sister.
