  • Trivia

    • Near the end of the episode, as the General Lee races up for Bo to throw the purse full of money through the window, the shot is flipped backwards – the '01' on the door can be seen to be back-to-front.

    • When Luke, accompanied by Bo, gives Helen a demonstration of his truck driving skills, when they get in the truck is parked up in the town square. As they take off, suddenly they are down a narrow back-road surrounded by trailers. As the driving demonstration finishes and they get out, they are suddenly back in the town square again.

    • When Cooter is putting the General Lee through its paces at the very start of the story, when he pulls up outside his garage, (the double for) Cooter can be seen to be wearing a light blue shirt. But as the shot cuts to the interior of the car, Cooter is actually wearing a grey shirt with cut-off sleeves.

    • In the close ups of Uncle Jesse doing card stunts, the arms used in these shots actually belong to John Schneider (Bo), an accomplished card performer.

    • When Luke was driving the big-rig backwards, it somehow caused water tracks left by another vehicle to dry up as he drove over them (of course, in reality, these were marks left by him and the film was played in reverse).

    • While Morgan (Teddy Wilson) was asking if the boys could tell time, his arms went from folded in front of him in the forward shots to at his side with his hands in his pockets in the shots from behind.

  • Quotes

    • Rosco: Whoa, Enos, me first. I'm the Sheriff.

    • Rosco: Enos, how did you beat me here? Will you stop using them dumb sounds and talk regular English?

    • Luke: Be ready to make the pick-up in exactly five minutes. Copy that?
      Cooter: Check. Exactly five minutes. Give or take a minute 'cause I ain't got no watch.

  • Notes

    • The A-Team's 3rd season episode Road Games (1985) has some noticeable similarities with this episode. In that story, when the A-Team are hired to close down a crooked gambling racket, the organisers move the casino into the back of an 18-wheeled truck. Other shows, including Starsky & Hutch (the third season episode The Action) and T.J. Hooker also feature episodes with noticably similar plots.
