In 1982 Neal and George played the roles of Coy and Vance respectively when John Schneider and Tom Wopat (Bo and Luke) walked off the set of the Dukes of Hazzard due to salary and royalty disputes. Coy and Vance's appearance was a huge hit with fans of the show and as a result of their success they demanded an unbelievable salary to reprise their roles of Coy and Vance Duke the following season. Unfortunately the producers couldn't afford the high price associated with Neal and George's infamy and the terms Schneider and Wopat were asking for suddenly looked more affordable. Thus Bo and Luke returned for the remainder of the show's run.
