The Dukes of Hazzard Wiki

"The Sound of Music – Hazzard Style" is the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of The Dukes Of Hazzard.


Boss is excited about the Mickey Gilley charity concert at Hazzard Square, and it is not because of the music, but because of money. Boss is working with Heep and Morton, a pair of recording pirates who are making a recording of the concert so that they can sell it. When Heep and Morton are confronted by federal agents Marjorie Dane and Ben Jordan, Heep and Morton throw the recordings inside the General Lee, framing Bo and Luke. Mickey knows that the Dukes are innocent, and they work together to find Heep and Morton. Boss later cons Mickey into a performance with his celebrity speed trap.


Balladeer: Now when the Duke boys got their minds set on something nothing else registers. Not even Cletus on their tail in hot pursuit. But they ain’t thinking about women chasing or car racing. They’re concentrating on one thing. Music. The Mickey Gilley concert in Hazzard. Now Boss Hogg, being Hazzard’s leading patron of the arts is awful proud, especially since he found a way to rip off the concert. With the help of these two jake-leg record pirates, Heep and Morton, black market tapes of Mickey Gilley got to be worth their weight in gold


Bo drives the General as he and Luke are being chased by Cletus.

Town Square

Mickey Gilley is performing ‘Object of My Affections’ in the town square. As he sings many people dance. Daisy, Jesse, and Cooter all sit together, Daisy dancing in her seat. Nearby in a van, Heep and Morton are illegally recording the concert. While the concert continues Boss and Rosco dance together. Jesse wonders where the boys are and Daisy says not to worry about it.


Cletus is angry about chasing Bo and Luke because he is missing the concert. Bo jumps over a billboard and Cletus attempts to follow but goes through the billboard instead. Cletus remarks they are supposed to hid behind them.

Town Square


As the concert continues a man comes up and takes Daisy’s hand. She happily goes off with him to dance, to Cooter and Jesse’s amusement. Boss continues to dance by himself now that Rosco is sitting down. The song finishes and everyone claps. Meanwhile two people sit in a blue car watching the event. The woman, Marjorie Dane, notices Heep and Morton’s van. She points it out to her partner Ben Jordan. When they move to get closer, Morton notices them and he and Heep flee with the master tape on foot. As they run to the street, Bo and Luke arrive in town. Morton stops them and has Luke climb in the back of the General so he and Heep can get in. They have the boys drive them away at gunpoint. The federal agents see the General drive away, assuming Heep and Morton had partners. The federal agents go back to their car and chase after the boys.


Bo leaves town and asks who is chasing them but they only tell him they mind. The federal agents catch up to the General and Bo goes down a dirt road before jumping over a creek. The two agents stop. Morton tells Bo to pull over and stop the car. Bo does and gets out along with Luke and Heep. Morton climbs onto the driver door. Heep says they are going to leave the boys there before asking if there is any questions. Bo asks if the gun is loaded and Morton shoots the ground asking if there are any more questions. Bo pretends to be dizzy and kneel down but Heep says he knows Bo is going to throw some dirt on them. Bo remarks they can’t blame a guy for trying before telling Luke to help him up. Luke does, flinging Bo at the two men. They throw both men down and escape. The men get their guns and shoot after them. Luke says they didn’t seem amused and Bo says he would like to know what that was about. Luke tells him to go back to town, neither knowing the master reel is in the back seat.

Police Department

Boss is on the phone selling Mickey Gilly tapes. Rosco hangs up an astrology poster. Boss sells 6 dozen tapes and turns to Boss is surprise asking what that is. Rosco explains that he ordered the horoscope for the month and Boss tells him for focus on his new business deal. Rosco protests, saying according to his horoscope he can’t go into any new business. Boss says he doesn’t like this stuff and threatens to fire Rosco. He says he’ll make Rosco the pin boy at the Dawn to Dusk Bowling alley at Pool Hall. A knock comes at the door and Ben and Marjorie come in. They explain they are looking into record piracy in Hazzard. Boss and Rosco learn that the feds are after Heep and Morton and that the two escaped capture by taking Bo, Luke, and the General Lee. He further learns that the tapes are gone too and the truck is in custody. After they leave Rosco tells Boss this business just isn’t in the stars. Boss says he needs to think about this.


Bo asks if Luke really thinks talking to Rosco will be any good and Luke says every little law around there is Rosco. Bo laughs as he agrees.

Police Department

Morton and Heep call Boss and inform him what happened. Boss and Rosco listen on the phone, going from happy to furious. Cletus comes into Rosco’s office saying he doesn’t know why but Bo and Luke are outside and insisting to see Rosco. Boss hangs up the phone and he and Rosco run outside, leaving Cletus in the office to eat Boss’ pizza.

Outside Bo and Luke explain the story to Boss and Rosco. Boss asks if that is their story before saying the whole thing stinks and tells Rosco to search the car, shocking the boys. Rosco pulls out the master tape, which Bo asks what it is and Rosco says it is an illegal recording of Mickey Gilley’s concert. Bo reminds him they were nowhere near the concert. Boss asks where it came from before telling Rosco to lock them up. Boss and Rosco head to the Police department, Rosco pulling along Bo and Luke. Bo keeps protesting and trying to explain but Luke tells him it’s no use and they might as well hand over the other tape. Bo, Boss, and Rosco are all confused and when Bo asks Luke insists there is another tape. Bo goes to the General with him to get the other tape but they drive away. Boss announces there is no other tape and tells Rosco to go after them. Rosco lazily calls ‘freeze, freeze’ as he watches them drive off. Boss asks why he won’t go after him and what has come over him. Rosco says ‘my planets are in the wrong houses’. Boss insists for him to go after them saying if Rosco loses the boys, he won’t have a house on any planet, especially that one.


As the boys flee they realize that Boss is probably involved and they got caught with the tape. Luke says Bo will figure some way out of it. Surprised, Bo asks that he will. Meanwhile a truck comes from the other direction and Luke swerves away. The back of the truck opens, dumping plastic models out the back. Rosco drives toward it, seeing the figures on the road and conclude the boys have ran over half the citizens of Hazzard. He swerves around some before accidentally going off a dirt ramp into a tree. He tells Flash it pays to buckle up.

Luke offers to help and Rosco says he appreciates it but he’ll do it himself. He leaves with the command for Cletus to arrest them. Cletus goes to cuff them and Luke asks if Cletus can see what is going on. Cletus says Rosco is a smart sheriff an if it was something too dangerous he would have sent Cletus.

Cletus tells Bo and Luke about the van over the CB and they radio the others. Cletus sees the van and calls Bo and Luke, saying that the men are on Old Post Road headed towards Mud Flats. Luke tells Bo to cut through Pokerville Pass and Bo agrees.

Mud Flats

Boss tells Rosco that they are going to be killed as they ride in the back of the van. Boss sobs saying he doesn’t want to die as Lulu would get all his money. Rosco says he has an idea, that all they have to do is wait until his horoscope runs out then they are home free. Boss threatens to kill Rosco. Morton drives into a construction site, damaging the van and getting it stuck in the mud. They get out to try to dislodge the van only to see Bo and Luke arriving in the General. In the van Rosco manages to start getting them untied.

Bo and Luke stop when they see the van but neither crook. They get out of the car only to have a tire shot out. Heep and Morton are both driving toward them in large bulldozers from each side. Bo and Luke each take cover behind different trees. Luke slips on the mud and falls to the ground. Heep tries to run him over but Luke manages to jump onto the scoop of the bulldozer. Bo starts running in the other direction and Morton shoots at him. When Morton runs out of bullets Bo rushes him and they start wrestling out of the machine. Luke gets Heep out of the bulldozer as well.

Cletus pulls up along the General and they are relieved when Luke gets out of the way before being horrified to see Cletus is now in the way. Bo runs over, opening Cletus’ door and getting him out of the car.

Balladeer: Bo and Luke finally found out that Jordan and Dane were real federal officers, but they were forgiven seeing how things turned out. With no hard evidence to connect Boss and Rosco to Heep and Morton, Boss and Rosco managed to one again wiggle themselves off the hook. And owing his life to Bo and Luke, Boss cleared the boys of any connection in the record piracy. And remember that reward on them record pirates? ‘Course it hadn’t occurred to Boss that in clearing the Dukes they’d get the reward money, which they’d later donate to the Hazzard Orphan’s Fund. So he did the next worst thing, and put up the Hazzard celebrity speed trap; where you don’t leave, until you sing. A lot.

Town of Hazzard


Cletus arrests Morton and Heep before handing them over to the federal agents. Boss and Rosco were let go for lack of evidence and were cleared. Mickey Gilley arrives to give the Dukes the reward money and in anger, Boss catches him in a speed trap and makes him put on another concert in the Town Square.

Rosco and Cletus sell drinks and popcorn as Mickey Gilley comes out. He dedicates his first song to the Dukes and Rosco. As he sings, the Dukes and Cooter all enjoy the concert. Rosco and Cletus want to dance but Boss makes them sell food. Cooter, Bo, and Luke pick on Daisy a little during the song and he gets back at them. Boss starts dancing as well, enjoying the concert.
