This is the episode which features the world record jump over the river which is seen in the credits from series two onwards. This shot actually originates from the first season finale "Double Sting", and would be recycled several times during the course of the series.
For freeze framers, there is a very obvious goof in the scene where the General Lee jumps Boss' convertible. Bo, Luke and Cale Yarborough are in the car when they begin the jump. But slow down the video as the car is making the jump, and there is very clearly just one person in the car (a man wearing a yellow helmet).
Near the end when Luke takes the smasher car off the trailer to run the guys off the road, you can clearly see in the close up shots he is in the General Lee, not the car his is supposed to be driving.
When Boss Hogg arrives at the Dukes farm Uncle Jessie puts the fruit bowl in the oven next to the pie. Surely this will bake the fruit. If he is hiding it from Boss Hogg why not put it up somewhere high were the fat little buddy wouldn't be able to reach it
Editor's note: Maybe the oven wasn't turned on so there would be no worry about the fruit getting baked.
When the hitmen are in the Boars Nest posing as Bible salesmen why do they say they will catch Boss Hogg next time they are passing through your city. How long has Hazzard County been a city?
Editor's note: Hazzard is the name of both the county and the town. A common occurrence.
When the boys are driving with Boss towards the tunnel, they get shot at twice. After the second shot Bo knocks his head on the steering wheel. I've seen it now where sometimes Luke asks him about it, and other times he doesn't. I'm guessing he didn't mean to hit his head and Tom and John just sort of carried on with the scene until it was edited out.
When Enos is chasing the Dukes you can see the back glass is busted out of the General to camera changed a couples of times and the winder is busted out.
When the boys leave Granny Annie's, Bo is driving. When they get to the Boar's Nest, Luke is driving.
When Bo is tied up on the jeep of one of the car strippers they are arriving at a river and they have a close up shot of him halfway sitting down and then in a wide shot he is standing up.
It's mentioned in this town that the Hazzard County seat is named Coryville. This is the only episode where that town is mentioned. In all the others, the county seat is the town of Hazzard where most of the action takes place.
In this episode, we learn through the telephone operator that the Dukes live 18 miles outside of Hazzard, a considerable distance considering in other episodes they seem to make it into town very quickly.
When Daisy's yellow car goes off the edge after Bo and Luke jump out you can see a stunt driver with a yellow helmet pop out of the back seat.
Enos is seen in this episode bass fishing on his day off but why is he wearing his uniform and using his patrol car on his day off?
Editor's note: The car is understandable. In a subsequent episode we learn that Rosco drives his patrol car even when he's off duty. As for the uniform my guess is that the producers were cheap and trying to save money with the wardrobe.
This is the last episode for Daisy's yellow Plymouth Roadrunner/Satellite. Bo and Luke drive it over a cliff, explicitly disobeying Daisy's instructions not to put a speck of dust on it after she just washed it. At the end of the episode Daisy is given the white Jeep by a man who is grateful that the Dukes helped to protect her daughter. However, despite the car being destroyed in this episode, it returns in several following episodes, due to the episodes being broadcast in a considerably different order to which they were filmed. Several episodes also use the cars with different paint jobs, to serve as other cars within the context of stories.
When Rosco takes off after the Dukes, who are in Cooter / LB's pickup, he is wearing his blue Sheriff's shirt. However, when his car crashes off the road into the pond, he suddenly has his black Sheriff's jacket over his shirt - the footage was lifted from an earlier episode! When he returns to the Boar's Nest, the jacket is gone again!
When the APC crashes into the side of the Boar's Nest at the conclusion of this episode, the interior is clearly a mock-up of Boss Hogg's back room - the room is much smaller than usual, and when Miller and Flint fall onto the wall, the wall moves, revealing it to be flimsy plywood.
This episode is notable for a role reversal with the Duke boys. Luke does most of the driving and Bo does the crazy stunts like diving from a moving car. One thing how did Bo learn to drive the APC?
At the end of this good episode, there is sadly one goof. When the brakes of the APC fail, luke says, "everybody bail out". In the following shot you can see that all 5 passengers jump out of the vehicle, but in the next shot you see the "empty" APC running, but someone is still throwing cigarettes out. Its a very short scene, but the APC had to be empty.
Daisy is fired by the Boss & Sheriff Byrd midway through the episode. However, even after she's fired, she still repeatedly talks about her duties as an officer. Wasn't she an ex-officer by that point, meaning that it's no longer her duty? Perhaps it is a responsibility as she's a Duke & the family has morals that often have them entangled in police affairs, but she's adamant that she catches them on her own.
Enos finally gets some real respect & affection from Daisy in this episode while Daisy is a deputy.
One wonders why Daisy was given the $10,000.00 reward for capturing the escaped prisoners when she let them escape in the first place, needed help from almost everyone to recapture them, and it was Grady Byrd who originally apprehended them by himself no less. This was one episode where the "establishment" in Hazzard appeared to be more competent than the Dukes.
