    This was only the second episode of the Dukes I had seen when it was shown on Bravo but it left such and impression on me (especially the girls sun bathing). This is one of the most action packed episodes of the dukes with the final chase scene being one of the best examples I have seen on TV. The episode works so well because the girls are like a female Bo and Luke so you get twice the amount of mayhem. This was a plot for a series about Mason Dixon but it was never made, this doesn't suprise me because with out Bo and Luke I don't believe the girls work so well. Overall though this is a classic episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The boys hide the "water heater" at Cooter's farm. How does Cooter have time to run a farm when he spends all day fixing either the General Lee or Rosco and Enos' patrol cars.

      Editor's note: Many who own farms only work them part time or as a hobby and have regular jobs. Such appears to be the case with Cooter here.

    • When they are all in jail watch as Tom Wopat sits down, you can see he smacks his head on the bar, judging by the look on Toms face it hurt aswell.

  • QUOTES (0)

  • NOTES (5)

    • This episode is the second of two second season stories designed as a backdoor pilot - tests for possible other shows; in this case, one that would be based around travelling Private Investigator Mason Dixon and his two female associates. The other such case was "Jude Emery" broadcast two episodes. Neither of these concepts was developed beyond their initial backdoor pilots.

    • We learn in this episode that Boss Hogg absolutely refuses to handle narcotics in his county. One of the things Sorell Booke insisted on in regards to his character was that there be some things he not do. Among them we learned during the course of the show were having people killed and handling narcotics.

    • In this episode we learn that Cooter also owns a farm. Like so many other things on the show, this farm is never mentioned again (with one vague expection - in the third season episode "Dukes Vs Duke", Cooter says he has put all of his money into his stock car, and everything - including his farm - rests on him winning).

    • Veteran heavy Morgan Woodward would return once more in the show's final season in Cool Hands, Bo and Luke.

    • With James Best returning to the series after resolving his dispute with the producers, Rosco is back from his refresher course at the Police Academy (even though, due to the episode order being shuffled, he'd been seen four times since he supposedly left for the course!)
