  • Trivia

    • Earlier in the season, when Andy considered taking a job in Raleigh, he suggests that the city council will choose his replacement. In this episode however, Barney has to run for the job and win the election. This makes entirely more sense since the position of county sheriff is always an elected position and it's unlikely that a city council would have any authority over a county sheriff.
