Storyline

The daughter-in-law of a cotton tycoon flees to Hazzard County and anonymously leaves her infant son in the General Lee. The Dukes eventually find out that the mother, Mary Lou Craig, has lost custody of her baby to her father-in-law, Emerson T. Craig, who has her declared unfit (because she married above her social class). While Bo and Luke track down a judge that they know is open-minded and willing to issue an injunction, Mr. Craig enlists Boss' help to enforce the existing court order. However, Mr. Craig - having observed Rosco's bumbling - continues to press his luck by insulting southerners, and eventually Boss decides to join the Dukes in helping Mary Lou win back custody of her son.
