  • Trivia

    • The Duke boys decide to be inside each of two trucks to catch the pirates. Daisy distracts the truck drivers and the boys open up the doors and pull them closed from the inside with a length of rope. The latches on the outside were not closed, but when Luke's truck is taken to the abandoned farm, the crooks are shown opening the latches on the rear door!

    • When Bo, Luke and Cletus run from the courthouse, they get away in one of the patrol cars. Pay close attention to the lights, as it seems someone put the light bar on backwards because the red is on the passenger side and the blue on the driver side. (which is wrong) This wasn't a reversed shot, as the patrol car behind them is like that too and everything else is right. But when there driving, the lights are correct. (red on driver side and blue on passenger side)

  • Quotes

    • Luke: I got an idea. Let's solve this the old American way. By voting.
      Cletus: Okay.
      Luke: All right. All in favor of surrendering, say yep.
      Cletus: Yep.
      Luke: All opposed to surrendering, say nope.
      Bo and Luke: No!
      Luke: Nope's got it. We win, you lose.

  • Notes

    • Cletus (Rick Hurst) once again fills Enos's shoes as Reserve Deputy. Although Cletus had already been seen standing in for Enos in the previous episode (The Meeting), no explanation for the change is given until this episode, when it is said that Enos is having his appendix out.
