Plot[]

Balladeer: It all started out to be one of them peaceful Hazzard mornings. Guess it was a mite too peaceful. Now friends, it was only a door banger but it sure was about to churn things up for the Dukes. Especially Daisy.

Bo and Luke take the General down a dirt road but as they turn they nearly collide with another car that has two passengers in it. Bo and the other driver try to get control of their cars but the brown car hits a tree. The boys stop and get out. Bo and the driver are about to yell at each other and Luke explains that it was the other driver’s fault. The passenger gets out and when Bo asks who he is he introduces himself. Bo and Luke learn he is a nephew of Boss’ from Atlanta. The driver says the boys will be paying for the damages and they disagree. Rosco arrives just as Bo is ready to fight. Rosco stops them all and they plead their case. Bo and the driver nearly go to blows again, being pulled back by Jamie Lee and Luke and Rosco takes control of the situation, reminding them he is the sheriff. When Jamie Lee introduces himself, Rosco determines that Bo and Luke are the guilty party. He arrests them.

Town of Hazzard

Rosco tows the General into town with Cletus behind and Jamie Lee following. Boss comes out greeting Jamie Lee as his ‘baby brother’s boy’ and is thrilled to see they have also brought charges against Bo and Luke. While Boss is praising Jamie Lee, Bo adds that he’s full of beans, making Luke laugh and annoying the others. Rosco says he caught them all fighting and Boss tells Rosco to arrest the boys as Daisy, Cooter, and Jesse approach, seeing the commotion. Bo and Luke go to argue and Jesse asks what happened. Boss introduces James to them all and Daisy tells him to back off of her family. Jamie is very interested in her but Boss says to just lock the boys up. Jesse tells him to hold up and Boss says that the Dukes are all law breaking scallywags, shocking everyone present. Jesse says all the Hoggs are the worst when it comes to thieving and Jamie Lee tries to break in but Daisy tells him to shut up. While the others argue Bo and Luke slip away. Rosco and Cletus chase after them as the Dukes and Cooter laugh and Jamie Lee looks at them all in confusion. Jamie Lee tries to apologize to Daisy but she tells him to hush. Boss tells Cooter to fix the car and hold the bill.

Road

Bo and Luke continue to run from Cletus and Rosco. They break through a fence.

Court House

Boss tells Jamie he surprised him with his visit. Jamie Lee asks if Boss really had to be so rough on the Dukes and Boss brushes it off before asking what he’s doing in town. Jamie Lee explains he’s hoping to do some business. He asks about the ‘broken down old Hogg gritsmill’. Boss asks why, if it’s broken down and losing money why does Jamie Lee want it and he says he planned to use it as a tax loss. Jamie hands over some money for the mill.

Road

Bo and Luke fall in behind a truck and Rosco pulls up alongside. Rosco points a gun at them to pull over and Bo tries to tell him to look out. Rosco narrowly avoids an oncoming car, allowing Bo and Luke to get by. An oncoming truck runs Cletus off as well and Bo and Luke decide to head back to town for Jamie Lee.

Court House

Daisy waits outside when Jamie Lee comes out, heading for the hotel. She tells him he has some nerve and because of him her cousins are running from ‘Hogg justice’. Jamie Lee expresses he would like to change that image and tells Daisy he is formally apologizing to her and her family and will be dropping all charges. Floyd pulls up and Jamie Lee excuses himself to talk to him. He answers the phone for his Boss, telling him he bought the grits mill and everything is going well. He is told to make sure nothing goes wrong. He returns to Daisy and asks if they can go talk somewhere. Daisy suggests the Boar’s Nest and agrees to ride out with him.

Road

Bo and Luke find Jamie Lee and chase after them. They try to pull over Jamie Lee but Floyd gets mad and run them off the road. Daisy yells to be careful but he argues the boys started it. Bo and Luke get back on the road and the car return, all five getting out. The boys are shocked to see Daisy. Daisy explains they dropped all the charges. Luke asks then what all that was and Floyd apologizes for that. Jamie Lee apologizes and Rosco arrives. Jamie Lee tells him they are dropping all the charges. Rosco says he’s a Hogg and doesn’t do anything good for anyone. Daisy says this one does and her, Floyd, and Jamie Lee leave. Rosco, Bo, and Luke watch in shock.

Police Department

Rosco tells Boss what happened to his shock. Boss says the charges were bad enough but he wants Rosco to repeat the other thing he said. Rosco says it appears that Jamie Lee is sweet on Daisy Duke. Boss says that is impossible and there is no way a Hogg would be attracted to a Duke.

Duke Farm

Bo, Luke, and Jesse are digging out a ditch and Bo argues that he sees it but won’t believe it. Jesse says maybe Jamie Lee is different. Luke says he dropped the charges and apologized and Jesse says Daisy likes him and he might be alright. Bo disagrees. Jesse reluctantly agrees.

Jesse and Boss start arguing and Jamie and Daisy try to calm everyone down. Boss insists that ten generations of the family would be spinning in their graves at this. While it escalates Bo and Luke arrive, commenting that the fuel pump in their car had to be fixed and that is why they were late. Luke hopes that they are in time to stop Daisy from doing something foolish and Bo says he would help Luke fix things if he knows about mechanics but all he does is drive. Luke laughs in disbelief.

As they enter the bar and hear yelling, Bo and Luke hide behind the door. Boss and Jesse insists they can’t get married and Daisy insists they love each other. Bo and Luke are shocked to learn what the meeting was about. Deciding it’s gone far enough, Bo and Luke step in and approach Daisy. Rosco goes to arrest them but Boss says to forget it as they got more important things to worry about. Daisy and Jamie explain they really wish to be married and ask for their blessing. Boss refuses. Boss pulls Jamie Lee aside and Bo and Luke pull Daisy to the other side. Bo and Luke try to tell Daisy what they have learned and Jesse pleads with her to listen.

Rosco and the rest encounter the grits truck head on. Rosco avoids it, hitting a tree and knocking off the hood and front two fenders of his car.

Bo and Luke climb into the General and Bo speeds off.

Rosco nearly hits Bo in the cars and swerves, hitting a tree and knocking off the doors, trunk, and back fenders. The boys keep going, realizing Daisy is the priority. In the car Daisy brings Jamie Lee back around and Roy tells her Jamie Lee was only marrying her to shut her up. Daisy is betrayed and Jamie Lee gets upset. Daisy says she can’t’ believe she fell for all that phony stuff and Jamie Lee insists that it wasn’t an act and demands for Landry to let her go. Daisy disagrees.

Floyd and the others are in the brown car, then the truck, then the body guards. Bo catchs up and the body guards start shooting at him. Bo and Luke start evading the gun and Bo pulls up along the car before ramming them and running them off. They focus next on the truck.

Bo manages to run off the truck, giving them an open path to Floyd’s car. Rosco is distracted by the state of his car.

Luke climbs onto the window frame and shoots out a tire. Bo hits the horn and Daisy again fights for the gun. Bo says Daisy will be alright and they pull up to see Daisy has the gun and has all three at gun point. Boss, Jesse, Rosco, and Cletus arrive.

Balladeer: Well there you have it folks. The counterfeiting ring was finally broken. But so was Daisy’s heart. You know, while I’m glad there ain’t no wedding, ain’t it amazing how love can bring enemies together? Even for a short time. Especially in Hazzard County.

Rosco and Cletus begin arresting people. Jesse and the boys check on Daisy and Boss checks on Jamie Lee.

Police Station

Daisy goes to see Jamie Lee in jail. They talk about what could have been. Outside Bo and Luke are sitting on the General while Jesse and Boss talk. Jesse says Boss has his sympathy as it must hurt when your kin let you down. Boss says it does and that he knows Jesse must know how he feels as he has two nephews who are criminals. The three Dukes are stunned and Jesse says they are just good country boys. The two argue. Bo and Luke watch amused.
