Realizing the Dukes are up to something, hearing Luke’s voice, he goes outside to see Bo. He pulls a gun on him calling him ‘sod-buster’ to Bo’s offense. Bo tells him that he wouldn’t try nothing with the gun as there is someone behind him with the same one. He asks if Bo thinks he just jumped off the tater truck but Rosco brings a tire down around him and he drops the gun. Bo helps secure the tire and Rosco rolls him down the hill.

He manages to get up and the three of them run up the hill and into the same car. They pursue Cooter’s truck and the General Lee. They catch up to the General and Bo swerves all over the road.
