* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: WordOfGod has it that Uncle Jesse has instilled in his nephews, Bo and Luke, that for as wily as Boss is and for as much grief and trouble as he and Rosco have caused the Duke family through the years simple harassment to outright framing the Duke boys for various crimes to trying to illegally foreclose on their property they have a moral obligation and duty to protect, rescue and aid Hogg (and/or Rosco, when necessary) whenever their lives are threatened. It is implied that Jesse has told Bo and Luke that, if they were ever to allow Boss or Rosco to die at the hands of criminals, they would be disinherited and disowned as they would be just as responsible for allowing their deaths to happen as if they had pulled the trigger themselves.
** In the Season 2 episode "Grannie Annie," it is Rosco who employs this trope when he has trouble convincing Bo and Luke to go after a counterfeiter and his bodyguard who have kidnapped Boss and plan to kill him (after believing he double-crossed him). The Duke boys eventually relent and end up saving Boss JustInTime.

** During the Dukes' peak of popularity in the early 1980s, several coloring books were issued. One of the stories has the Dukes meeting and visiting (for the evening) new neighbors, who were never seen on the live-action show. Highlights included a large country-style dinner and -- of course, what Dukes' story wouldn't be complete without it -- a story about Rosco and how the Dukes ended one of their cat-and-mouse chases by driving through an old barn and eventually locking the sheriff inside for the night.

A theatrical [[TheFilmOfTheSeries motion picture]] version of the series was made in 2005 starring Seann William Scott as Bo, Johnny Knoxville as Luke, Music/JessicaSimpson as Daisy, Music/WillieNelson as Uncle Jesse, and Creator/BurtReynolds as Boss Hogg, with a 2007 made-for-TV prequel. Two made-for-TV [[ReunionShow reunion movies]] with the original cast were also made, in 1997 and 2000. (What's often forgotten these days is that the original series was itself a loose adaptation of a 1975 theatrical film called ''[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moonrunners Moonrunners]]'', which featured essentially the same premise and the same characters under different names...or, in the case of Uncle Jesse and Sheriff Rosco Coltrane, the ''same'' names!)

** Rosco also leaves "to be re-trained" for a while in season 2 (due to James Best's boycotting the show; see AbsenteeActor on the Trivia page). He is replaced by some [[MonsterOfTheWeek Sheriffs of the Week]], until they settle on Grady Byrd, played coincidentally enough by the original Other Darrin (Dick Sargent), to replace him during the rest of his absence. Rosco eventually returns.
