Old Gunsmoke Episode--Did Matt Dillon Get Married?

OK, I know this one sounds strange, but here is what I seem to remember.

I have a memory of watching Gunsmoke a long, long time ago, when it was still in B & W, and seeing what seemed to be a "terminal" episode, where the final scene -- all I remember of the episode -- had Matt teaching a boy, his son, to track animals. The scene expanded to show Miss Kitty, his lovely bride watching.

I was a little surprised when the show resumed the next season, as it sure looked like a wrap-up episode.

But I was VERY young then, and it was a long time ago. I acknowledge that this could be a fake memory, but I remember that scene so well, that I really think I saw it.

So, do any of you know something about this, or am I just having some weird hallucinations due to drugs ingested in the 1960s?

From this 2001 interview:

Quote:
Question: Why didn't Matt and Miss Kitty ever get together?

Answer: We used to get a lot of mail from people, especially from the ladies, you know, saying they want to see Matt and Miss Kitty go ahead and get married or something. The producers kicked that around. I think they felt if you did that, that you would suddenly be going in a different direction. Matt really couldn't go out and do the sort of dangerous stuff he was doing. It would limit the directions and the options you had.
I think you may have gotten ahold of some bad hooch!

I don't remember that ep, but in one memorable episode, Matt, while an amnesiac after being wounded, was taken in and nursed back to health by Michael Lerned. They fell in love until he got his memory back. In the 90s reunion movies, it was revealed that the two produced a daughter during this time (unknown to Matt). But this was color, around '73 or so, so it's not what you're remembering, I'm sure.

I do appreciate the effort, Sir Rhosis, but I am beginning to suspect that, like Mr. Blue Sky said, I may be tilting at windmills due to some "bad hooch!"

Hey, I really do apreciate being here, and thank one and all for the pleasure of your excellent company.
