How to Rob a Bank in One Hard Lesson - S2-E2

Plot hole: Heyes convinces the deputy that they're not Heyes and Curry and rightfully pins the bank robbery on Harry, who forced him to break into the safe. But it had been previously stressed that only Heyes could have cracked that particular safe, something the governor knew. So the neatly tied-up ending doesn't really work. The governor would still know that Heyes (whose nitroglycerin method was based on a real bank robbery of the era) opened the safe.

Hannibal Heyes: Look, Wheat, I agree, we gotta bust him out. But it's gonna take finesse.
Kyle Murtry: Wheat didn't bring any of that.



An egotistical, prissy and dishonest lawyer like Mr. Fletcher wouldn't make the mistake of allowing his name to be misspelled on his office door. It reads "Winfred Fletcher." His first name, as it's pronounced throughout the episode, is "Winford."



The stiff-necked, humorless Sheriff Tankersley was a nose-thumbing parody of a real (and really unpopular) person. William Tankersley was a notoriously prissy network censor who was infamous at the time for trying (unsuccessfully) to stifle the naughty bits on All in the Family.
