A pair of pool hustlers steal the "General Lee" while Bo (John Schneider) and Luke (Tom Wopat) are skinnydipping. Chasing after the "General", Sheriff Roscoe (James Best) sees the car crash into a local pond, and becomes convinced that the Duke boys have drowned. Boss Hogg (Sorrell Booke) takes advantage of this "tragedy" by claiming that Bo and Luke had stolen his watch before their untimely demise--all the while keeping the timepiece locked in his own safe so he can collect the insurance. Once the boys find out what Boss is up to, they decide to get even by "haunting" the billious Boss, using a few splashes of luminous paint to transform themselves and the "General" into phantoms! (Trivia note: this is series star John Schneider's favorite episode).
