Sorrell sure had some great lines!

"Rosco I wish, I just wish that for once you'd use your head for somethin other than a handy place to hang your teeth. "

This is one of my fav lines too. Of course right now I can't think of any of my fav lines from him. He and James Best worked so well off of each other. I loved Sorrell in "Ghost of General Lee" when Rosco tell's him of the "boys passing" .

We watched Lawman of the Year and found this great line. Rosco sends Enos out to the car for Flash's doggy num-nums and Enos bumps into Boss on his way out.

Enos: I'm on my out for some doggy num-nums.

Boss: Oh, well I hope you like 'em better than I did when I tried them.

Rosco tried one a few minutes later and said something like, "I wonder what they put in these things?"

Flash seemed to like 'em though.

Jimmy and Sorrell made quite the pair on the Dukes...one that could never be replaced. I enjoyed watching their comments and reactions to one another...they always seem to make me laugh, no matter what kind of mood I am in. The Duke boys will always be my favorite characters along with the other Dukes and Cooter, but I love Boss and Rosco just as much.

Rosco: Oh I'll win Boss

Boss: Rosco, with your reputation right now, if you were the only man running, you'd come in second.

That is the only one I can think of off the top of my head, but he comes up with some great lines!

Keep it between the ditches

To Rosco:

"You got splinters in the windmill of your mind!"

Rosco:

"Ooooh, that's poetic!"

And:

Rosco, I got me three medals in two wars, and the only time I get scared is when you get SMUG!"

We don't have enough money in the budget for another paycheck so Cletus is gonna have to split his with you!

Yes there is, I'll give you the whole paycheck and you give'm half

If brains was watermelons you wouldn't have enough seeds to fill a tin

I don't know how you women do it in this shoes!

Rosco, what lack in brains, you make up for in sheer stupidity

I wish those Duke boys were on my side

You have got the IQ of a watermelon and seeds for brains!

What are you scatching your head for condidering there ain't nothing in it?

After all if a man don't grow, he dies

When they were passing out the brains, you must have been behind the door and didn't get any

Rosco, If we ever get out of this alive, I'll kill you!

I don't know how you women do it in these shoes

One of my favorite Rosco/Boss exchanges is from "Swamp Molly":

Boss: You get the FBI out of Hazzard County, or I'll divorce your fat sister and send her back to live with you.

Rosco: Boss, you wouldn't do that. Look, Lulu keeps a good home for you.

Boss: I'll hire a housekeeper. She'd eat less, scrub more and sleep downstairs.

I wouldn't describe this as a "favorite" Boss quote but it is interesting. It's from "Cooter's Girl" when Boss was planning on locking up them Duke boys.

"I'll have them picking weeds off the county highways 'til the year 2000."

(This first aired on 12-30-83) That was a scary thought. It reminds me of when they got locked up in Osage County. That sure looked like it was going to be long term....now it's time for a Waylon quote.... "In Hazzard we tend to like happy endings."

After Rosco accidently knocked Boss down a hill, he looked down at Boss at the bottom and asked him if he broke anything important. Boss responded, "No, (looked up and shook fist) but I will in a minute. Just wait 'till I get my hands on you."

Also in that episode when Rosco took a hard tumble he reacted, "I think I broke everything."
