A shot used on the opening teaser shows Luke and Bo, in Boss's coffin works, emerging from behind the false bottom in an (upright) coffin. Although the episode features the pair hiding in a coffin, it is lying down, and the scene in the teaser (possibly an alternate take of the same sequence) is not used in the actual episode.
Although there had been vague hints of it in previous episodes, this story marks the first time that Boss Hogg deliberately tries to frame the Dukes. This plot device would be reworked in many, many future stories.
During the opening chase where Enos is in pursuit of the General Lee, a shot from behind Enos, looking from the back of the car through the windshield, shows it quite clearly to be a double and not Sonny Shroyer; the double has much longer, untidier hair than Enos' well-groomed look.
Near the very start of the episode is a sequence where a Sheriff's car (driven by Enos) chases the General Lee around a patch of trees. This sequence would be used behind the closing credits on all episodes from the second season onwards (as well as occasionally appearing as stock footage in other episodes)
Near the end of the episode when "Uncle Jesse" is in the tractor causing a diversion, it is very obvious that its a stand-in/stunt double in the tractor.
Bo & Luke are climbing up the outside of the Coffin Works. Luke is on the roof and Bo is just about up when the rope breaks. When the commercial break ends, we see Luke make a heroic grab and save Bo from falling. When they are fleeing the roof, the rope has mysteriously reattached itself and is dangling back in its original location.
As Boss' hearse drivers scour the Coffin Company attic for a special coffin with a false bottom, the one attendant mentions how they are used to haul shine. He refers to the "AFT" - what he means is "ATF" - Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms.
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.
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.
During the fight scene at the end of the episode,Bo and Luke fire their arrows which explode but they didn't light the fuse on the dynamite.
You can clearly see that when Cooter is driving the limo it isn't hotwired, it has the key in the ignition.
In the first part of the episode when the General Lee is being chased by the secret service, the Dukes make a jump and then drive into what looks like a ditch. The "01" on the side of the car is reversed.
