  • Quotes

    • Boss Hogg: (seeing his prison lunch) Bread and water?
      Rosco : That's right.
      Boss Hogg: That's cruel and unusual punishment! Ain't you heard it's unconstitutional?
      Rosco: Listen, don't you wave that bread at me! After all, that's all you gave me for prisoners' lunches!

    • Boss Hogg: (in jail after Beaudrys framed him) But I didn't do it, I tell you! I'm innocent! I was framed! (begins to cry) Now I know how them Dukes feel!

    • Roscoe Coltrane: (taking Boss's mugshot) All right Hogg, you will face forward with your fat little jowls with a pleasant expression. And you can say "grits!"
      Boss: I'll "grits" you, you knucklehead! You can't book me like this!
      Rosco: Then I'll shoot you without grits. (takes the shot)

    • Boss Hogg: (breaking out of jail after a wrongful arrest) I've gotta clear my name. If nobody'll help me, I've got to do it myself! (jumps into patrol car and takes off)
      Rosco : (trying unsuccessfully to stop Boss) Freeze!
      Enos: Who'd ever think Mr Hogg'd be a fugitive?
      Rosco: So you thought he was innocent, did ya dipstick? He's not only a jailbreaker, he's a car thief! (indicating other patrol car!)Get in that vehicle!

    • Bo: Luke, don't you think Uncle Jesse's a bit long in the tooth to be racing in them old shine cars?
      Luke: Well, you can be the one to tell him. I got more sense than that.

    • Sledge: You shouldn't have done that. You got me mad.
      Milo: Me too.
      Bo: Yeah, well, you almost wrecked us back there, Milo.
      Luke: You Beaudrys got a lot of dang gall showing up in Hazzard County. We ain't forgotten the last time.

    • Bo: We've been ridin' in the General together for so long we've even started thinkin' the same way.
      Luke: That ain't funny, Bo.

    • Bo (announcing over speakers): and Boss Hogg brings up the rear!
      Rosco: Aw, I knew it. There's too much flab in the cab!
