The Dukes of Hazzard (1979-1985)

Lulu Coltrane Hogg is a fictional character on the television series The Dukes of Hazzard played by Peggy Rea.


Lulu is Boss Hogg's wife, and Rosco's "fat sister", making Boss and Rosco brothers-in-law.

Boss and Lulu are childless and live in a large mansion in Hazzard County.

Like Boss, Lulu is overweight and has a voracious appetite. She is most often seen wearing muumuus and is known to frequently indulge in such dishes as large pizzas, fried chicken, blueberry pies, and her cherished chocolate bon bons.

Lulu constantly challenges her husband for authority and rallies for the equality of women in Hazzard.

Unlike Boss, Lulu is friends with the Duke family.

She often acts as Boss's moral conscience, something that often grates him.

Boss, while always keeping he and Rosco's schemes from her, seems to genuinely love Lulu, and even frequently calls her by petnames, such as "Angel Food Cake", "Marshmallow", "Sugarplum Puddin'", and "Chick-a-Bitty."

Boss calls her Lulukins, saying he meant what he said. He tries to explain he meant it but didn’t’ mean to tell her that and he can only say the truth. She asks about him saying he married her for her money, to which he says that was the only way he would get it. She asks him saying she’s as big as a house and he says there are all different size houses. She says that he said when she went to the beauty parlor it looked like she never got waited on. Boss asks didn’t she. Angry she grabs a potted plant and when Boss says he doesn’t know what has come over him she yells ‘this is what come over you’ before breaking it on his head and storming inside to grab his bags saying he is out.

She is sitting on the porch eating candy when the phone rings. She answers it and Rosco asks if Boss is there. Angry she asks if he means the no good brother in law of his who said life with her was so dull he looked forward to seeing his dentist. Rosco says the only reason he said that was he took truth serum. Annoyed she says she only has two words for him ‘good bye’ and hangs up.

New Deputy in Town

Lulu calls Boss at work and he tells her he can’t talk to her right now, calling her precious, saying he’s very busy and tells her to eat another breakfast before hanging up.

Lulu calls Boss again. He addresses her as Lulu dumpling and tells her that hes’ too busy and to have another breakfast before hanging up.

Lulu call’s Boss at the office again, and he addresses her as his ‘little apple pie’ before saying he still can’t talk to her and he’s busier than ever and for her to start on her lunch.

Frustrated, she decides to go see Boss. As she goes to knocks she hears Boss and another woman talking. She becomes upset and when Boss says “ain’ this fun?!” she becomes enraged yelling ‘FUN?!’ before storming in. She yells at Boss, addressing him as ‘Jefferson Davis Hogg’ and saying the woman he’s with is why he’s been too busy for her. Boss protests saying he was showing Linda May, the new acting sheriff, how to roll a pizza dough. She says when he comes home tonight to just forget it cause he isn’t getting in the door. Boss tosses the pizza to try and prove his point and when it lands on his head she snaps at him, calling him an animal and storming off.

Boss comes home with Alex and she begins to toss his bags at him. Boss quickly pleads with her, calling her lamb chop and asking they act like civilized people. She hits him with another few bags and Boss begs her to stop calling her ‘jelly doughnut’ and to think of the kids. She hits the mail box and screams they don’t have any kids. She calls him a beast and an animal as she continues to throw his bags at him.

At home the phone rings and when she answers it she hears’ Boss call her cupcake. Angry she goes to hang up but stops at Boss’ pleas, him saying he wants to clear up the misunderstanding and hates to see her pumpkin face all sad and miserable, that he wants her happy and smiling with all 12 of her dimples showing. She hangs up.

A little after five she decides to make up with Boss as she misses him. She gathers a basket of food and heads toward the Police Department. As she reaches the building, Rafe Logan suddenly grabs her. She is surprised, saying they almost spilled her goodies and asks what are they doing as she wants to see her ‘chicken bitty’ as she has decided to forgive him. Rafe yells at her to get in the car and she protests, but does. She yells for Boss to help her as they drive away.

As they ride she comments she is Ms. J.D. Hogg and they will never get away with this. Rafe screams for her to shut up and she snaps ‘you shut up!’ She starts screaming for help. Denny announces they are being followed by an orange car and she knows who it is. She eats chicken while they talk about the boys. When Rafe and Denny start shooting at the boys, she starts screaming. Denny tells her to shut up and she screams louder. When Bo an Luke stop, Rafe says to dump her. Linda May stops and Denny pulls her out saying she’s getting off. She tells him to let go of her but gets out of the car. He hands her the bag and she sobs on the side of the road, eating her chicken. A few moments later, Bo and Luke drive by, Bo yelling they will be back to get her ‘Miss Lulu’.

Lulu goes to Boss’ office where they celebrate with chicken and Champaign, drinking out of their glasses with their arms intertwined. They kiss before going back to eating.

Lulu founds and becomes president of an organization named H.E.R.S. or the Hazzard Equal Rights Society. She goes to the Boar’s Nest to see Boss, bringing a basket of lunch with her. She says they need to have a talk and Boss says to talk. She expresses that as the president of H.E.R.S. she has an obligation to set an example by assuming her legal rights. Boss asks what is she talking about and she tells him that from here on out and from this day forward, according to community property, she is his full and working partner in all business enterprises. Shocked, Boss says he’s too hungry to discuss this. He goes for her basket and she slaps his hand saying that is her lunch and for another thing Boss will have to fix his own vittles. Boss protests that it’s her job and she rolls her eyes saying not anymore. She says it’s share and share alike. Boss says her job is in the kitchen. She waves it off and Boss says she’s too frail. She goes into the bar but remembers she forgot her lunch. She returns and grabs the basket before going back into the bar.

Seeing Daisy she asks if she wants something to eat but Daisy says no. She says she and Daisy need to talk and asks what kind of work is this for Daisy to do.  When Daisy says she gets to keep 25% of her tips, she says that is slave labor and tells Daisy to put down the dish towel as she will set Daisy free. She says she wants Daisy to be her personal secretary and chauffeur at twice what she is making now. She says if Boss doesn’t like it he can complain to H.E.R.S. and Daisy agrees. They leave to buy office furniture.

Lulu and Daisy take the new furniture to the office. Daisy asks where she wants a chair and Lulu tells her right where Daisy is will be fine. Boss and Rosco come in asking what she’s doing and she asks what it looks like, saying they are following the motto. Boss tries to protest but she ignores him, asking Rosco to help set up a hat rack which he immediately agrees. Rosco asks where she wants it and she gestures to where but Boss tells Rosco to take it all out. Rosco asks what she means by branch office and Daisy explains they already took over the Boar’s Nest. When Boss says Daisy should be waiting tables she remarks ‘no more, Daisy is a H.E.R.’ Boss says she is a woman, she is frail, and running tough things are men’s work. Annoyed she snaps that it isn’t anymore, addressing him as a male chauvinist Hogg. She says women can do anything a man can just as good or better. Boss yells that they can’t and she says they can. Cletus comes in to tell Rosco there is a call for him and Boss and Rosco leave, saying Cletus has one hour to get everything out. Daisy asks what to do and Lulu tells Cletus he will but the hat rack where J.D.’s one is.

Lulu and Daisy go around, repainting a number of businesses to show Lulu’s ownership. At the Used Car lot, Murkin remarks that he hopes Boss doesn’t fire him but she assures him he will always have half a job with her around. She asks Lulu what is next and Lulu reads off a lift. She tells Daisy that they should get to it and the time has come for the women to take their place alongside the men. They start to leave, singing the anthem of HERS when they see Sheriff Little pull up. Surprised, she asks what brings him all the way from Chickasaw. Little explains that he’s looking at all the used car lots for a car for his new deputy. She points to a police car saying they have one there, rearing to go. Murkin tries to talk to her and she tells him to hush as they can take care of it. He tries to talk again and she tells him to but out as it’s a Hogg lot now. Lulu walks over to the car, telling Little she will give him a fine deal and throw in four new tires. When he says the color is wrong Daisy offers to repaint it and he agrees.

While her and Daisy drive the car to Chickasaw, Boss calls her on the CB. She answers and Boss tells her to bring the car back to the car lot. She tells him that the car was sold and they are delivering it to Sheriff Little. Boss says that the price Lulu got for it isn’t worth what it is. She says that maybe so but a deal is a deal. Boss says he is giving her an order and she says she is a free woman and she doesn’t take orders from anyone. She hangs up the CB. Daisy says Boss sounded pretty upset and she remarks it’s typical male chauvinism and a man can’t stand to see a woman get ahead before offering Daisy a bon-bon.

While they drive, Luke calls and tells them that the police car is loaded with stolen credit cards, shocking her. The two men who originally stole the credit cards catch up to them, forcing them off the road. She gets out of the car telling him that he may think he owns the road but they have just as much right. Daisy calms her, telling her there is no such thing as equal rights when someone is holding a gun on you. Lulu is stunned seeing the gun. She is told to get in the back of the car, which she does with Daisy’s assistance.

As they go she sees Bo finds them. Bo is told to leave but stays following them and is joined by Luke and Jesse. When Dickens leans out the window to shoot at the boys, she rolls him up in the window. Daisy gets control of the car and she announces she had to man all ‘trussed up’ to which Daisy praises her. Cooter, Luke, and Bo help them stop. Luke helps her out of the car.

She holds a private party at the Boar’s Nest with Daisy’s help. She quiets everyone down to announce she is throwing the party for two reasons. She says the first reason is she wants to thank Daisy and all the Dukes for saving her life. She then explains  that she will no longer be running her half of Boss’ enterprises. Boss says that is a relief and Daisy says it’s because the next election for County Commissioner she is running.

When she learns that Boss has withdrawn his support of Rosco in the Sheriff election, Lulu starts lecturing him at home, even taking his fork as he tries to eat. She demands to know why Boss is kicking out Rosco for the ‘pole cat of a pig you call a Hogg’. Boss tries to explain but he can’t and says he doesn’t want to discuss it. Lulu says she does want to discuss it and until he does and supports Rosco again, he will have to find another place to eat and sleep. She wraps up his lunch in the table cloth and takes it back to the kitchen. She ignores his protests and when he follows her into the kitchen she hits him on the head with a slab of dough.

Lulu attends a support rally that the Dukes put together for Rosco. She addressed the attendees, saying she doesn’t believe in J.D.’s backing of Hughie and she says not to put the crook of Hughie in the Sheriff’s office but put him in jail. After she kisses Rosco and listens to Jesse speak about voting for Rosco. Rosco tries to steal her banana, which she slaps his hand. A few moments later they hear Boss in the back, ordering Rosco to arrest everyone. When Rosco refuses she is horrified to see Rosco get fired and Hughie made temporary sheriff.

Boss Hogg runs over, saying she doesn’t know what she’s doing. Lulu slaps him with her purse before patting his cheek with a smile.

Furious that her brother was arrested, Lulu chases Boss down the stairs and out of the house. She yells that she has put up with enough over the years. As she chases him out there is a knock at the door and she opens it to see the Dukes. She yells at them to come in before telling Boss that he s getting out until Rosco is out of jail and having his job again. Surprised Vance asks if he heard her right, which she confirms. When Daisy asks for what she calls Hughie a worm, saying he claimed Rosco tried to accuse Rosco of robbing them. They hear a police siren and Daisy informs them that the ‘worm’ has arrived. Hughie and Barclay come in, announcing they are arresting the Dukes but she pulls Hughie’s hat down and holds him so the Dukes can escape.

Ding, Dong, The Boss is Dead

Boss and Rosco come home, Boss shaken up from nearly dying in an accident. As she helps calm Boss down, she gets a phone call from Gussie. Gussie asks if she can speak to Boss, which Lulu agrees and hands over the phone. She listens as Boss asks if Gussie has heard any interesting phone calls. Boss becomes horrified on the phone, yelling at Gussie about Calloway. As Boss hangs up, she hears him and Rosco say about Boss turning states evidence against Floyd Calloway twenty years ago. Boss concludes that Calloway is going to kill him and she grabs him arm, calling him her butterball and telling him not to worry as Rosco will stop Calloway. Boss says he needs her to pack him a suitcase and vittles, which she does.

She goes outside to see Daisy, Vance, and Coy have arrived. She tires to talk to Boss but he tells her he has to go now and if anyone comes looking for him say he’s off to Alaska for the Polar Bear Festival. She goes back into the house but when she hears a bomb go off she comes back off. The Dukes offer to protect Boss but they say the condition is Boss has to come back to the Farm to have a 'pow-wow' with Uncle Jesse first. Boss asks her if she want's to have the pow-wow, to which she says 'yes.'

At the Duke Farm, she helps Boss and Rosco try and barricade one of the doors. Jesse asks what are they doing. Daisy holds her as she sobs when the Dukes realize that Calloway sent two hired killers out after Boss. Boss says he would be better off dead and buried. She becomes upset saying for him to not say things like that as they will get him killed. She adds that she looks terrible in black. Vance says Boss is right, upsetting everyone before he explains he means to pretend Boss is killed.

At her home, Rosco helps her with her makeup before telling her to start acting. Lulu starts sobbing loudly, calling for help. Jesse, Daisy, Vance, Coy, and a number of people come to her and the Duke boys help her into the house as she tearfully tells everyone they cannot revive Boss and Rosco had to carry him to the sofa. Lulu sobs by his side while people looked on before angrily whispering to Boss, demanding to know why he had to eat raw onions at a time like this. The boys help her into a chair and she tells everyone that Boss ate himself to death. Daisy rushes over, reassuring her. She says she will do this all like Boss would have wanted, a wake at the Boar’s Nest with food and beer and only a two dollar cover charge.

Lulu helps with the wake the next day, greeting people. Enos comes in with a flower, shaking her hand and telling her he’s sorry and he doesn’t know what to say. She tells him he doesn’t need to say anything, calling him dear and invites him in to eat saying if there was anything J.D. liked to see it was people enjoying food. A few minutes later Matt and Lorna come in and shake her hand.

When Jesse makes a speech about how much Boss meant to people she says he ate his way into her heart and her fridge. She sobs as Boss is taken out to the hearse. She continues to sob until the hearse is closed by Rosco.

She rides out to the cemetery with Rosco when she is horrified to see the casket fall out of the back. They follow the casket to see Boss get stuck in a tree. After he falls out, she asks how he feels and he tells her like he’s been on a great big roller coaster ride.

When Boss starts yelling at Rosco about the door, she snaps at him not to pick on her baby brother as he was comforting her.

When they get back in the car, they hear Daisy inform everyone Calloway is there and she tells Rosco that he has to do something as she can’t stand the thought of being a widow twice in the same day. As they drive, Calloway and the hitmen come up behind them. Rosco tries to slow them down but Matt hits them from behind and Rosco flips the car. As they sit upside down she tells Rosco he was supposed to stop them.

Daisy and Enos arrive and Daisy gets out of her jeep, asking if Lulu is okay to which she says she is fine.
