Nitpick: When Bo and Luke first meet up with Mary Kaye she tells them her baby is a girl. Then, lo and behold, when she has the child it's a boy.
Once Luke, Bo and Mary Kaye are being chased down the dirt road by the bad guys, Luke is driving the car, however, in one particular shot, Bo is driving the car, which makes no sense, as the car has not stopped and, in the previous shot, he was in the backseat and Luke was driving.
When Rosco is at the Duke Farm waiting for Bo and Luke, Daisy gets up and shuts the front door. You can clearly see a person's shadow through the window on the door in the following scene.
This episode suggests that Cooter works at a wrecker's yard. It is unclear if this was in place before the writers settled on him being a mechanic, or if it was just a job he had taken on the side.
In the scenes filmed outside the Courthouse, Christmas decorations can be seen hanging in the street in several shots. This episode was filmed in mid-November 1978; Convington (the town used for filming the first five episodes) was beginning to put up it's seasonal decorations, and there wasn't the time nor budget to remove them for filming.
A couple of shots of Cooter inside the wreck being towed behind the General Lee are clearly reversed back-to-front - he is sitting on the wrong side of the car, and the steering wheel is suddenly on the right hand side.
In the scene where the Dukes take Roxanne to the Boar's Nest, Bo is seen wearing a blue shirt, the only time in the entire series that he is seen doing so. Luke also wears a different shirt to usual in this scene, consisting of very small blue and white checks.
Jesse's truck in this episode is an old 50's Ford "Stepside" pickup. The only episode you see this truck.
On the first scene when they parked the General Lee in town, one of the 'flip up' headlights was stuck open, exposing the two headlights.
During one piece of narration, the Balladeer goofs. He says "...After all, Molly did intend to have [Uncle Jesse] back by four. And her intentions were good". He should have said Alice, not Molly, and it relates to the scene with Alice and Jesse on the swamp boat.
This is the only episode where Bo and Luke mentioned to Uncle Jesse that the Dukes had indoor plumbing when the Duke Farm had an outhouse.
This is the first episode where the 'Rhuebottom General Store' can be seen in the background; Mr. Rhuebottom would be seen, as a recurring character, from the fourth season onwards, played by John Wheeler.
After Cooter (Ben Jones) crashes into the Boar's Nest near the beginning of the episode, someone places a mug of beer in front of him and he smiles. Despite being a regular at the Boar's Nest, this is the only time in the entire show's run that Cooter is seen with beer - Jones was a recovered alcoholic, and requested that Cooter stuck to soft drink in future.
The race was obviously filmed out of continuity or with multiple Generals as the body damage changes from shot to shot.
There were many continuity errors in the "Oil Fight" scene were the fella's were kept going between more and less coevered in oil in various cuts.
Nitpick: When Enos is tied up and gagged as Bo and Luke escape, both Rosco and Boss look around the Courthouse wondering where he is (with Enos frantically nodding his head trying to attract them), but do not find him for the remainder of the episode. Even if Enos was gagged, he would still have been able to make noises with his throat to attract their attention.
Revenue agent Harvey Essex is called "Harley" by Boss when he approaches him on the street.
One of the agents said they were watching the limo from the Men's Room at the Boars Nest. We never see any restrooms from the Boars Nest or any place in Hazzard.
Unusually, for this episode, Boss Hogg's chauffeur is a much older man, wearing a chauffeur's suit. Normally, it would be a younger man seen in a checked red shirt and cowboy hat.
During the chase near the beginning where Bo and Luke are chasing the stolen Limo and themselves being pursued, Bo jumps the General (a shot that would be used on the opening credits from the next season onwards); when they land, the shots of Bo and Luke are recycled from the pilot, "One Armed Bandits" – notice that Bo is suddenly wearing a brown t-shirt instead of his regular blue one.
