  • TRIVIA (1)

    • One of the most touching scenes in all of Gunsmoke is in this episode. Newly and Patricia are at their wedding rehearsal with Kitty, Doc, and Matt looking on as participants. Festus fills in for the minister and essentially marries them in his simple way. The sheer agony in everyone who knows about Patricia's illness can be clearly seen in all their faces. They know that 'forever' won't be that long.
