He says he wants the hospital named after him. Rosco asks where the heck he got three million dollars and he laughs before approaching Rosco and asking if he ever learned how to read. When Rosco says he did he hands him a folder telling him to read it out loud as he knew Rosco would be suspicious. He listens as Rosco tells the people it’s a certified statement showing he is worth 100 million. When a man named B.B. Bascomb announces they already have the money, Rosco quietly asks him if the man is his and he remarks he thought the guy was Rosco’s. He listens unsure as the man named B.B. Bascomb says he will remix and master their tapes for 35 grand and make a CD so they can raise the half million.

At the Ground-breaking, Bo calls him over. Bo calls him a ‘hound dog’ and says they are onto him and he nearly pulled it off. Rosco says the LAPD called after Patch told them everything. Luke asks why he did it and he says revenge for running him off. He says he was going to string Hazzard along for years to raise money for a hospital that would never be built.
