*** Certainly implied when Jake and Elwood arrive at the soul food restaurant to pick up Matt "Guitar" Murphy and Blue Lou, and end up comparing notes with Matt about the quality of the food in various local prisons.

** Honestly, they seem like a group of guys who could find their way into jail on their own...

** Could be that Jake was trying to protect the rest of the band, in the other car. Give them a longer head start, and draw the Good Ol' Boys' ire by giving them the Bluesmobile to fixate on.

* Sixth, why did Jake bother talking with the Good Ol' Boys at all? They could have left without antagonizing them at all.

** According to the tie-in book, they were all arrested on other charges - don't forget that several of them helped Elwood steal the big loudspeaker they strap to the top of the Bluesmobile, and it's possible they're all considered accomplices to the fraud at Bob's Country Bunker, and for assisting the brothers' escape from the police lines at the Palace Hotel Ballroom.

** They do acknowledge that they were very late, so they probably just got lost or burst a tire or something. It was extremely lucky but still, MissionFromGod.

** I don't think Jake knew that Elwood's licence had been suspended until the scene where they led the police on a chase through the mall. And after that, I very much doubt that it mattered, from the point of view of the police, which one of them was driving.
* After John Lee Hooker gives his street performance he gets into a fight with on of his audience. Can anybody explain the significance of this? Because it feels like a ShoutOut to a real life event or dispute rather than something for the film, but I'm not familiar enough with J.L. Hooker's work enough to get it.

*** Less that they were lazy and more that it sorta slipped through the cracks. Everyone thought that someone else had told him and that he already knew.
