In the beginning of this episode, Bubba is unable to stop the boys from driving with open containers. This is because Mississippi law did not (and still does not) have a ban on open containers in vehicles. This permits all occupants, including the driver, to drink while driving so long as the driver's blood acohol level does not exceed .08.
This was the final appearance of D.A. Dutton.
This is the first of four episodes in which Joe Don Baker filled in for Carroll O' Connor while he recuperated from bypass surgery.
