Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • 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.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • A gunshot breaks the driver's side mirror.
      Boss: What was that?
      Bo: You must've looked in the mirror and broke it.

    • Bo: If the General don't hurry up and do something and fast, it's gonna be Appomattox all over again.
      Luke: Wrong. There they had a chance to surrender.

    • Bo: Who the heck could be shooting at us?
      Luke: Anyone of the number of them fathers of the girls you've been dating. Thing is now to find out which one. Come on. Stay low. I don't wanna lose you.
      Bo: I don't wanna lose me either.
