The Dukes of Hazzard Wiki

Phil is a minor character from the Dukes of Hazzard.


The Ghost of the General Lee[]

After causing some trouble hustling, Chief Lacey takes them to the county line. Lacey breaks their pool cues, tosses away their dice, and throws their marked cards. He tells them he will arrest them if they ever enter his county again before leaving. When Ernie makes a joke about ‘dropping his head in a side pocket’ Phil tells Ernie that their pockets are empty. They agree to head for Cottondale. He asks if Ernie intends to walk and Ernie says to steal a car first.

As they walk they spot the General Lee while Bo and Luke are in the pond skinny dipping. He asks Ernie what he thinks and when Ernie says to steal it he smirks saying he guesses they have no choice. When they find the doors are sealed he remarks they have been through windows before and gets in the drivers seat. They laugh as they they drive away. At the sweetwater sign he turns and drives back into Hazzard. Seeing Rosco, he pulls a hard turn and speeds down Route 99. Seeing a road block he asks what to do now and goes left only to accidentally jump into the pond. They get out of the car as it sinks in the water.

They go to the Boar’s Nest and play pool. Cooter is impressed with their skill and tells them that wasn’t a half bad shot. As Ernie makes a bet with Cooter, they hear Rosco explain that Bo and Luke ran into the pond and that they believe the boys are dead. They become interested by Boss saying Bo and Luke stole a watch that belonged to Jefferson Davis. Later they play dice out back with a few of the patrons.

Ernie and Phil decide to steal the safe but are alarmed when they hear someone come in. He waits behind the door and when Daisy comes in he grabs her. He ties her up in Boss’ chair and watches Ernie try to open the safe. He asks what now when it becomes obvious they can't open it and Ernie decides to steal a pick up. He asks about Daisy and Ernie says she isn’t going anywhere.

They steal a pick up and heft the safe on it. They drive and pass the Dukes in the General, surprising them. Seeing Rosco and Boss pass him, he remarks ‘uh-oh’. After a moment he sees the others in his rear view mirror and tells Ernie they are coming after them. When asked if it’s the cops he is told it to the whole town.  The safe slides in the bed and he looses control of the truck, causing a pile up. He realizes they are caught and when Lacey tells him to get out he does. Lacey arrests him. He asks about how long it will take him to get to Cottondale and Jesse Duke says probably about 20 years.
