About Episode

  1. Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) Duke practice archery with their Uncle Jesse (Denver Pyle). Meanwhile, their cousin Daisy (Catherine Bach) bursts out of the house. They are excited to hear the song that she wrote being sung on the radio by Jessi Colter. The Duke Boys and Jesse are surprised to learn that Daisy actually paid a publisher $50 to have the song published and now will never see a penny in return. Jesse suggests that they pay the man a visit in Atlanta. Bo and Luke meet Laster Starr (Ronnie Schnell), the unscrupulous publisher, who tells them that he owes nothing to Daisy. The boys are not satisfied, but the matching .44 Magnums draped on Starr's bodyguard are enough to make them leave. Determined to recover the money, they return to the offices, knock out the bodyguard and confront Starr. During this, Daisy waits in the alley with the General Lee, their racing car, idling. Just as Bo and Luke are about to make their point with Starr, his bodyguard staggers in to announce a police raid. Starr tosses a reel of tape to Luke and runs out the back door, picking up the Boss, who turns out to be none other than Hazzard's own Boss Hogg (Sorrell Books). Bo and Luke now scurry out and into the waiting General as the FBI and police watch their evidence drive away. Back in Hazzard, Bo, Luke, Daisy and Jesse listen to the tape and quickly realize that they may possess the key to a record piracy operation. Jessi Colter is playing in Atlanta for a week, so the boys and Daisy decide to "go to the top" and see her. Jessi's manager has never heard of Daisy's song but realizes she is another victim of a pirate operation that bilks millions from the music industry each year. The singer that Daisy heard on her radio, he says, was an impostor! He arranges to get a tape for Daisy with Jessi Colter, Donna Fargo and Loretta Lynn singing so that they can trap Starr into hiring Daisy Duke as an imitator of the superstars of country music. Daisy impresses Starr with the tape, and he immediately arranges a recording session at his Hazzard County facility. The FBI have now added Bo and Luke to their list of suspects in Starr's operation since they've been seen in his company. Boss Hogg, hopeful that a successful music piracy scheme will be his ticket into "the syndicate," instructs Sheriff Rosco Coltrane (James Best) to "protect" the farm where the studio and pressing plant are situated. As for Bo and Luke, the Boss relishes the opportunity to revoke their probation for participating in a piracy conspiracy. Daisy is stalling for time at the studio, hoping for Bo and Luke to arrive before she has to sing -- which she really can't. When Daisy finally enters the studio, she and Boss Hogg exchange mutual looks of disbelief as the syndicate men wait impatiently. Bo and Luke now come rolling up with Miss Mabel, Hazzard's mobile madam, and her ladies. Everyone in the studio comes rushing out to inspect the commotion. With the building cleared of people, Bo and Luke fire several dynamite-tipped arrows into the studio and pressing plant. The operation is blown to bits as the FBI men look on in disbelief. The agents have lost their evidence again, and the Boss didn't make it into the syndicate, but Daisy emerged as winner. Just as she's shrugging off her brush with stardom, Bo and Luke present her with a tape of Jessi Colter singing Daisy's song and the news that Jessi is putting it on her new album.
