To Catch a Duke[]

After robbing a jewel store, they into Hazzard where the radiator blows. Angry she says she can’t believe this and Burt tells her it’s probably just the fan belt. She scoffs and when he tells her to just try and stay cool, she becomes enraged snapping that she is sitting with $200,000 of hot jewelry in her lap so she is finding it very hard to stay cool. They pull into the garage and Cooter comments that she’s running a little hot on them. She snaps ‘no, we’re just having a barbecue’. After Cooter looks at it, he suggests they go get some coffee and food at the café and he’ll fix the car. Her husband leads her away.

As they go she snaps it is a really fine mess he’s gotten them into. He asks her to calm down, and she huffs in annoyance. He reminds her they got the jewels, no one knows where they are, and she is annoyed. He tells her besides all that, there is just one little bitty thing. He tells her that he loves her and she slowly smiles before he kisses her. They are suddenly interrupted by Rosco screaming ‘freeze’ and approaching them with a fake fire hydrant. They put their hands up in shock. Rosco tells them that they can’t ‘osculate’. Rosco starts to write a ticket and tells her to put her hands down as it isn’t like she robbed a bank, and she quickly does. Rosco says they need to come over to the jail and pay for the fine and when Burt expresses concern she cuts him off saying they will be happy to pay that fine. As Rosco walks ahead to show them where to go, she tells her husband that the sooner they pay the fine the sooner they can get out of the town. Burt protests going into the police station with the jewels on them. She snaps that they aren’t going to. Rosco calls them saying they have to go with him as ‘it’s over here’ to which she agrees and as they walk Rosco tells her ‘osculating in itself ain’t bad’. She gasps about some pretty flowers and runs over. She hides the jewels before picking one. Rosco quickly approaches her addressing her as Lady and explaining she messed up again and he’s got to write her another ticket for picking the flower. She says it’s worth it.

The police station she stands with her husband as he pays the $50 fine. Rosco begins to write the receipt when Bo and Luke come in to talk to Rosco about a ticket they got. Hearing that they were given a ticket, Bo asks what they did and she giggles as Burt said he kissed her. Rosco says he needs their social security numbers and she asks ‘for just a ticket’ before saying she doesn’t think they need a receipt but Burt hands it over. Bo and Luke storm out and Bo tells them to have a nice day which she thanks him. Boss Hogg comes in and talks to them about the fine, which they laugh off. They become alarmed when an APB comes out about them but try to remain calm. Rosco hands back their card saying their name before realizing they are the thieves. She pulls out her gun and tells Boss and Rosco to both get on the ground and not to move until they count to 100. They go outside and Burt stops to get the jewels but she tells him ‘not now you fool later’. She drags him to the General, where Bo is getting in and tells him ‘you boys got yourselves some company’. As Bo drives around the square she tells him to take a side street and tells Bo to stop, calling him blondie, saying they are getting off. Bo tells her ‘yes ma’am’ and does. She gets out and tells them to drive. They backtrack to find that Boss and Rosco have the jewels. Burt suggests they leave but she says they are only going where the fat man and the jewels are. When Burt protests she tells him it is their jewelry and they are taking it back.

After picking up their car, they wait outside and see the Sheriff come out. Seeing the uniform torn, Burt asks what happened to him and she asks who cares, saying ‘it’s that fat little marshmallow with our jewelry we want’. When Boss and Cletus come out later, they follow them. They arrive at the Boar’s Nest and pull up to the back door.

They go inside and she pulls a gun on them both. She tells Boss to hand over the jewels but Boss tries to play stupid. After getting them she tells Boss and Cletus to get down on the floor. Boss protests that he just had the suit cleaned from the last time she did that. She repeats to get down and they do. She makes them count and they leave. Outside she sees the car is damaged and calls Burt an idiot. She gets upset but tells him they are borrowing another car. They try to open a van but can’t, then see Rosco come out of the bar. She points a gun at Rosco and they get in the car with him. She tells him to drive.

After chasing around the cars in the Boar’s Nest parking lot, they escape with only Bo and Luke following. She tells Rosco that if he lets the boys get any closer, then him and his dog have seen their last day. She leans out the window and starts shooting at Bo and Luke. Rosco asks if that is any way to treat her fellow criminals and she says they aren’t friends of hers. She continues to shoot and Rosco says if she stops shooting at the boys he’ll take them to a place no one can find them. When Rosco tries and the boys refuse to back off, Rosco tells her to go ahead and shoot. Her husband tells her too but Rosco rolls her arm up in the window, making her drop the gun. Rosco stops his car and pulls them out with his gun. She tells Bo, Luke, and Rosco that if they don’t let her and Burt go, they will swear that the three were in on it. The Dukes decide to take the chance. Rosco has them move to the General and Bo asks if they are going to get in the car or are they going to stuff them in. They get in.

While in the back of the General, Luke tells Bo to have at it and Bo starts driving all over the road. She clings to the car. When Burt asks if they are trying to kill them, Luke says if they got hurt no one could tell the people the truth. Realizing the boys are trying to get them to admit it was only the two of them, she tells Burt to shut up. When Luke asks who helped them she says she told Burt to keep his mouth shut. Luke tells Bo to head to Wilton Bridge, telling the Roby’s that they can’t jump it but the boys would rather die than go to prison. The boys jump the bridge, alarming her. She becomes angry when Burt finally admits to everything. They are taken to town and arrested.
