The title of the episode; The Real Easy Red Dog, comes from a term used in (American) football; 'red-dog' or 'dogging, which means 'to rush the quarterback', and it can be heard right after Christine Dusseau (Stefanie Powers
) has opened the door to Jim's trailer, coming from the announcer on Jim's TV. See more
When Rockford "persuades" Christine Dusseau (Stephanie Powers) to accompany him in his car about halfway through the episode, she reaches to unlock her door to try to get away, only to have Rockford show her that he's removed the lock button. In subsequent shots as they drive, however, the button is visible on her side of the car even though she has had no opportunity to replace it during their drive, nor does Rockford give her the button back.
