Storyline

In a hurried, all-comic sequel to "The Wiving," the sons of a loony farmer have all finally found women willing to marry them (the farmer makes a play for Hannah Cobb, in her second appearance, and is turned down again). But finding wives was easy by comparison to actually marrying them! Written by Peter Harris

Bizarre & Terrible

This was the worst idea of an episode. It literally make no sense. It was a sequel to "The Wiving" from a year before. You'd think it being towards the end of the series before being cancelled, the writers would've paid tribute to the cast by honoring them. The actual Gunsmoke cast barely makes it in this episode. This had to be a potential spin-off idea from CBS. The mom & dad who were played by Harry Morgan & Fran Ryan are involved in getting their three sons married off all the same day. Shenanigans ensue with the brothers tusslin' with a group of local ruffians. One of the soon to be brides knew one of the ruffians & the girl keeps it a secret. Jim Backus plays a preacher who'd rather sip on some spirits than lift any for his congregation. Later that same year Harry Morgan would sign to play Col Potter on MASH. David Soul would make a pilot for ABC called "Starsky and Hutch" & it would run 4 seasons from 1975-1979.
