    Having now seen most of the first 4 seasons I have a question for any of you experts out there. I can't remember Chester ever having called the Marshal Matt or Matthew. And versa vica Festus usually called him Matthew.

    Can any of you'ns recollect Chester referring to his boss by his first name??

    As far as I know, Chester - neither on radio or TV, ever referred to Matt as anything but "Mr. Dillon". Festus started out calling him "marshal", then "Matt", then finally "Matthew".

    Wasn't there one episode where Chester called him Matt? I have no idea when it was, but it was so unusual it stuck in my memory. Or maybe I'm hallucinating. : )
