Sadie Hogg Day is the seventh episode of Season 4 of the Dukes of Hazzard.

Summary[]

It's Sadie Hogg Day in Hazzard County, the day when women run the county offices. Daisy's role is being the county treasurer. This works out well for Boss, since he's been embezzling county funds and knows that a state investigator is coming to inspect the county ledger. Boss uses this knowledge to make sure that Daisy will be charged with the theft of county funds.

Plot[]

Bo and Luke head to town, Luke driving. Luke says Sadie Hogg Day is one of his favorite holidays, which Bo says he ain’t alone for. Bo says any time that many pretty girls get together in the same place at the same time he’s gotta do some shopping.

Balladeer: April the first is April Fool’s day most everywhere else, but in Hazzard it’s Sadie Hogg Day. That’s where the women take over the Hazzard Government. So the day before when women draw straws to see who does what, every man in Hazzard with half a hormone shows up to watch government in action. Poor old Cletus, he’s missing all the fun. Boss has got him waiting in the bushes trying to nail the Dukes on anything. Which is sort of silly when you think about it, since everybody knows where old Cletus waits. But it does keep things kinda simple.

Town of Hazzard

The women in Hazzard head to the County Court House to draw for the jobs for Sadie Hogg Day.

As Bo and Luke continue to drive, they pass Cletus who is sitting in his car. Cletus chases after them. Noticing Cletus, Luke says he’s getting ambitious.

Cletus hits a piece of machinery and they raise Cletus’ car in the air in revenge.

Boss says he is going to arrange to have Daisy drawn for County Treasurer. Rosco says Daisy will appricate that before asking why Boss would do that. Boss says so that the missing funds will be Daisy’s responsibility and after they arrest Daisy it won’t be hard to incriminate Bo and Luke.

Drawing

Many people gather in the booking room, including Clara Coltrane, Lulu, Miss Tisdale, Cooter, and the Dukes. Boss welcomes everyone to the event, explaining it is named after his great great grandma. Mis Tisdale and Lulu both tell Boss to get a move on. Boss draws for the Boss of Hazzard County, pulling out Lulu’s name. When Boss draws for Sheriff, he pulls out Clara Coltrane’s name. He then draws for the Deputy, getting Miz Emma Tisdale. Boss then draws for the County Treasurer, slipping Daisy’s name into his hand. He announces its Daisy, to which everyone celebrates and Daisy hugs Lulu. Bo however becomes confused, asking Luke about how happy Boss seemed to be that Daisy drew such an important job.
