Shorty tried to protect his money, so he chained it to his steering wheel. However, if there was the chance that his car was stolen, that means he'd be out the money and the car. Apparently, he never considered that.
There is absolutely no way the policemen would let the Clampetts get away with their homesteading in Central Park, no matter the Irish factor.
Shorty says that Granny wants their $85 million in the Bank of Bugtussle for Elly's dowry. Why would they want to put their whole fortune for her dowry? Her share of the money would make sense, but not all of it.
Shorty tells Drysdale that the one building he passed was the town of Bugtussle. However, Granny has described Granny as a bit bigger in prior episodes. She said that they light the streets until 9 on Saturday night, and they play checkers for money in a backroom. Mostly, the way Granny described it, is is still a small town, but a town nonetheless. So, how can this all fit in one building?
Why do the Clampetts think that the first man Elly snares will marry her after only knowing her for a few days? Apparently, they don't believe in longer term relationships. And why would the family be okay with a man who could beat-up Elly? Why would someone want their female relative to have a man that could beat her, even though she is capable of defending herself?
For a woman who claims to be very feeble and weakened, Granny can really jump over a railing two stories above the ground and land perfectly on her feet and keep running after Elverna. Granny might have some secret to youthful energy since she can do so much for someone her age.
Granny says that Elly May is about to turn twenty. So when they went out there, Elly would have been about thirteen. When the show started, Elly didn't look that young. She looked like she was in her late teens, not her early teens.
Granny describes Elverna Bradshaw's daughter as the "homeliest girl in the hills." But in one of the first episodes, Jethro said she was the "prettiest girl in the hills."
The episode was originally written for singer Glen Campbell, but his manager turned it down. Pat Boone was called to replace him.
Even though the Drysdale sell their house to Pat Boone, they never move out of their mansion, and Boone never moves in. Perhaps with the interest Drysdale charged, Pat decided not to move there. Apparently, the sale never went through.
Mrs. Drysdale's final price for their house was $10,000.00. The house was worth at least 100 times that. The original asking price offered was $250,000.00. But with the interest that is charged it amounted to the asking price offered.
Granny uses a tire pump as a blood pressure machine.
Sam knows who Dash Riprock is, but where the Clampetts are from, they are still getting the movies of the 1920's. Why is Hooterville more up to date than Bugtussle, since they are both small towns?
When Mr. Drysdale talks to the crow thinking it is his father reincarnated into a crow, it is not the first time on the show it has happened. In "That Old Black Magic," Mrs. Drysdale is dabbling in astrology, Granny thinks that a crow (actually a Mynah bird) is Mrs. Drysdale, who turned herself into one.
When Carol gives Jed her phone number, she gives him a number beginning with Crestview, but by 1969, this had become practically non-existant, and most shows were using phone numbers that started with 555.
Cratchit left the hair poltus on his head for a week and said how the other bank employees made fun of him. But when he got the poltus on, Granny told him he could come back the next day to have it taken off. Why did he keep it on so long?
In this episode, Drysdale says how his father was the president of the bank. However, he once said that he became president when he married Margaret because her father was chairman of the board. Also, Miss Jane says that when she started working at the bank, Drysdale's father was already gone. But Drysdale has said that he hired her.
Drysdale mentions that it was Cratchit who started the petition to have Christmas Day off, and Cratchit says that he whipped him for this. Neither of these could really be gotten away with. With the exception of hospitals, nursing homes, police stations, fire departments, and a few other places, businesses are closed on Christmas, including banks. And as for Drysdale whipping Cratchit, he could have gotten in massive trouble for that, since it is a form of assualt. Plus, bosses are not allowed to physically abuse their employees.
The Clampetts see a picture of Rock Hudson in their offices, but don't recognize him. However, when they first visited their movie studio, Mammoth Pictures, they saw a scene from a movie which starred Rock. Did they forget him after that?
Roy recorded his album on a day, and Elly said that his album would be released in a couple of days. However, it takes longer than a matter of days for a record to be recorded and released.
