In the latest “Duck Dynasty” episode “Duck Be A Lady”, aired on A&E on 03/20/13, Willie once again has a problem with his baby girl, Sadie, growing up. Remember when he freaked out because she had a boyfriend and was going to a school dance?
This time Sadie is nominated for Homecoming Court and Willie is not happy with the dress Sadie and Korie chose. So he takes it upon himself to take Sadie dress shopping. After all, how bad can it be?
Meanwhile at the workshop, Jase is upset because they are out of coffee, because the coffee pot broke and Willie hadn’t bought a new one yet. “There are luxuries I can go without like electricity, toilet paper,” Jase complains, but apparently coffee is a must-have for this Robertson.
Jase makes a suggestion: “Willie should send one of his little minions out to buy a now coffee pot.” So Godwin, who is also in need of some coffee, gets up and wants to go buy a coffee pot, but Si stops him: “You are not a little minion.”
Jase figures, that it’s only fair for Willie to go get some a new coffee pot since the gang doesn’t ask for much. He could not have been more wrong because now the guys start naming of a list of things that they have requested from Willie over the years, including a basketball goal and naptime.
When Jase voices his coffee pot problem to Willie, he quickly gets aggravated and ignores his older brother, telling Si he has to cancel their fishing trip, since he is now taking Sadie dress shopping. So Si decides to tag along, so that they can go fishing afterwards. The men agree that this shopping trip should be a quick 30-minute thing.
As soon as Willie is gone the quack pack picks up their mission to get some coffee again and Jep suggests to go to a coffee shop, and off they go.
Sadie, Willie and Si have made it to the mall where Willie is returning her dress. The sale associate asks him if there is something wrong with the dress. Willie: “Yes, there is not enough material.” He is looking for a long dress, while Sadie wants a short one, but her daddy disagrees: “We need full coverage.”
Si is getting bored so he starts a conversation with a mannequin. After all, according to him, this is how he learned to talk to girl, by practicing to talk to mannequins. The conversation quickly turns violent, when he accidently rips one of the arms off and then pretends to get choked by it, while Willie is looking for a denim dress. Poor Sadie.
At the coffee shop Jep took the guys to, the guys are unsure what to order and when Jase hears the order of the man in front of him he gets really confused; “Is he constructing a bomb?” Finally they all get some espresso, while Jase looks around and wonders about the people who are in the coffee shop. None of them look like they are in a hurry to get back to work and it appears that all of them have been there for a while. Jase can’t help but wonder: “Do they work?”
Back at the mall Si is really bored now and decides to dress himself up a little: “I’m so dope that I’m illegal in 55 states.”
Willie doesn’t like any of the dresses Sadie is trying on. In his opinion as an overprotective father they are either too short or show too much cleavage and he just can’t allow that for his little girl. Needless to say that Sadie is getting more then frustrated. From the dressing room she texts her mom for help.
Meanwhile at the Duck Commander, a hyped up quack pack is moving the boxes Willie had asked for and they still have enough energy left over to goof around, do some jumping jacks and push-ups. “This stuff is amazing,” Jase is happy. But Jep is the first one to feel all that caffeine: “My heart beats so hard it hurts my ears.”
It doesn’t take long before the entire gang crashes with headaches and all. Jase decides that espresso should be banned. But since their coffee pot problem is still not solved he thinks about buying a coffee maker and writing it off on his taxes.
Sadie is mad at Willie for taking all the fun out of dress shopping and out of all people it is Si who comes to her rescue: “Your little girl has bloomed into a full grown woman and you are handling it poorly.” He points out that Sadie is now 16 and reminds Willie, that his own mother, Miss Kay, was already married at the age of 16.
At last, Korie arrives and makes Willie apologize to Sadie for acting like an overbearing dad and Willie finally agrees on a dress – the very dress Korie and Sadie had bought to begin with. A family group hugs seals the deal.
In the end, Willie walks Sadie around the stadium for the homecoming court and compares raising a daughter to drinking espresso – everything happens so fast and then comes the crash.
