Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) has struck a deal with a beer distributor who wants to purchase the Duke farm. Since he can't get the property through honest means, Boss resorts to trickery (surprise!), arranging a fake accident on the property and having Sheriff Roscoe (James Best) sue the Dukes for whiplash. As it turns out, it is Boss who suffers as Roscoe, playing his "victim" part to the hilt, forces Hogg to wait on him hand and foot. This episode marks the first appearances of two recurring characters, Doc Appleby (Parley Baer) and Circuit Judge Potts (Barney Philips).
