  • I really didn't like this episode. It included to much drama and to much really weird twist. Not to much excitement. Gaylord is just annoying.

    3.1
    Maybe a minute after the show starts, this city dude show up in the middle of a chase between Rosco and the boys. After they shake Rosco, the city dude wants to race, so the Dukes except. This city guy is really good, so when they lose, they head on home. They get a surprise when they find the guys red convertible in front of their house. They go in and are introduced to Gaylord Duke, a real English Duke. He explains that he has come to claim some property he inherited from a relative in Hazard who had died. He has to pay 30,000 before the next Monday, or Boss Hog will auction it off.They go to a person who owes Jessie for helping him, but find out hes dead. So the only other person would be Boss Hogg, so they came up with a plan to get Boss to pay the taxes. Daisy and Gaylord are in love, as is obvious. While they take a romantic stroll through the woods, Jessie, who left suddenly, comes back, and they find out the Duke is an impostor. When he comes out of the woods, the boys confront him. He acts calm at first, then pulls a gun on them and ties them up. Then he goes to finish the rest of the plan with Hogg, who has no idea whats going on. The Dukes get free, and pull a switcheroo on Boss, so the impostor was exposed, and boss still payed the taxes. Boring.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • It's mentioned in this town that the Hazzard County seat is named Coryville. This is the only episode where that town is mentioned. In all the others, the county seat is the town of Hazzard where most of the action takes place.

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (6)

    • Simon MacCorkindale would later go on to star in Glen Larson's Manimal series on NBC, which only lasted 8 episodes, as Professor Jonathan Chase. He reprised the role later on in an episode of the 90's Glen Larson series NightMan (the episode was titled Manimal).

    • As far as Daisy having a crush on Gaylord:

      When Gaylord is first introduced, Daisy mentions that he's their cousin through an aunt's marriage, which means they aren't blood cousins. Non-related cousins getting married is not uncommon. Franklin D. Roosevelt married his fifth-cousin.

    • When the boys are painting the roadsigns for Rosco, Gaylord's says "God Save the Queen", Bo's says "Speed Limit 155 mph" and Luke's says "Speed Trap 1 mile Ahead".

    • Cooter's cousin, L.B., who appears instead of Cooter in this episode, is listed in the end credits as Longstreet B. Davenport.

    • This was the first episode produced after Ben Jones left the show over a dispute with the producers. They wanted him to have an unshaven look, but Jones had grown a beard, which they ordered him to get rid of.

    • Ernie W. Brown (who guest starred in the pilot) appears as Cooter's cousin Longstreet B. (L. B.) Davenport, the second replacement of Ben Jones' boycott.
