  • When Early explains the cannonball on the podcast, Sheriff scoots his chair.
  • According to Early, Jefferson had a whole arsenal of balls, which were a magic ball, to hit people in the head and returned back to him, just like a boomerang, and he could shake the ball, which had a lite window in it like a 8 ball, that would pop up and tell him where the opposing troops was. His other balls were a spiked ball, a portal themed cube, and a goldfish in a bowl, shaped like a ball.
  • The Cuyler's outhouse is buried in dirt, next to a bunch of holes in the ground, due to the Cuyler family trying to find more cannonballs that could be buried underneath the ground by sifting through the ground, but weren't so successful.
  • Sheriff says "And we'll cover the whole enchilada live on the podcast", when talking about the upcoming reenactment, since Ollie investigated the "Repulsion of the Siege of Cuyler Mountain", after a certain incident that merits an reenactment.
  • When Ollie says "your little battle", he pulls up two of his fingers, which questions Early, asking why he does that with his fingers.
  • Granny is seen spray painting America-styled shoes and bowling balls.
  • Deputy Denny mentions about a smash-and-grab at the blowing alley last night, Sheriff told him to keep his face down because of the reenactment of dead soldiers, and claims that Ollie would tear him a new one if he sees them, serving as corpses, chit-chatting, like they are doing.
  • Sheriff presses a button connected to a smoke machine for the reenactment.
  • One of the eyes of a man dressed soldier is opened before closing his eye shut. An another soldier opens his eyes during the reenactment and then closes his eyes. When Rusty approaches a soldier for the cannonball, he opens one of his eyes.
  • In the reenactment, Rusty fills the role of Jefferson, where he comes out of a log, finds the cannonball from a soldier, reenacted as a dead corpse with spaghetti sauce and noodle acting as blood in his body, and claims "this cast-iron ball should fetch a pretty penny", "And I'll in town and spend my two bits on a lady of ill repute, filling her with" his "crippling" gonorrhea. He rolled the ball for two days straight, all the way from Lexington, while he has "mighty" hankering for food and then starts opening his rucksack, but no salted pork, no hardtack, but a soldier coat, which he boiled it in muddy creek water, due to being uneducated, making for a thin nutritional gruel for him, called "rebel broth", which Granny claims that is her secret family recipe. When Jefferson drank lead from the coat button, which leeched into his mind and body, and then spent his final hours hallucinating that he was Rififi, the Queen of the Birds, trying to hatch an egg, which was the cannonball. Jefferson was killed from a combination of lead poisoning and an easily-curable infection gotten from self-pleasuring with a poison sumac leaf. Its unknown if Jefferson really died this way, since this was a reenactment, however, this event could have actually happened.
    • Also in this reenactment, Jefferson killing Bill Sherman's army with the cannonball doesn't happen.
    • Early mentioned that Ollie skipped a scene where Jefferson fought a union battalion for two months in the dead of winter in the reenactment, since this event never happened, in Ollie's words and he didn't do that in the reenactment.
  • Its unknown what happened to Ollie's horse when he entered the red car, before Ollie was killed in the red from an explosion of the cannonball. However, the horse is heard running away when he enters the vehicle.
  • At the end of the episode, owl noises can be heard at night, while Granny cooks her "rebel broth" stew, which isn't good without a coat, while Sheriff takes off his coat into the stew, as he claims that he is done with the Civil War and Ollie, due to the latter's death, and mentioned that the podcast is over.
  • After slurping "rebel broth", Early, Granny and Sheriff are dress in bird costumes, with beaks attached to their faces, saying "caw, caw" sounds similar to Rififi. Sheriff''s eyes notably change from black to red.
  • Like the pervious episode "Muscadine Wine", this episode doesn't have a usual credit sequence.
