Do you remember if these two TV characters ever kissed?

Somewhere between a chemistry lesson and a pop quiz.

Ever since I Love Lucy scrawled across our screens in the middle of a heart, we've all looked to the television for love, and TV writers knew just how to hook us.

On sitcoms and dramas, the question of "will they or won't they?" drove many a viewer to tune in, from Gunsmoke's Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty to Sam and Diane on Cheers.

But only true fans who watched these shows really know what happened to satisfy all the romantic tension on shows we watched from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Are you the authority on onscreen couples? Scroll through these pairs we've plucked from TV history and see how many smooches you can recall, or for those that did not, if you know the real truth about TV loves that were never meant to be. May you be lucky in love!
  1. On Mayberry R.F.D., Andy Taylor and Helen Crump got married, but did they ever share a kiss on The Andy Griffith Show?
  2. On M*A*S*H, Hawkeye and Hot Lips got on each other's nerves, but did they ever lock lips?
  3. On Gunsmoke, Matt Dillon and Miss Kitty were always there for each other, and she pecks his cheek occasionally, but did they ever seal it with a kiss?
  4. On Gilligan's Island, The Professor tells us he thinks Mary Ann is the prettiest lady on the isle, but did they ever affirm the affection with a kiss?
  5. On Star Trek, Captain Kirk and Lt. Uhura were both complex characters, but did they ever complicate things further with a kiss?
  6. On Taxi, Louie De Palma suffers unrequited love for Elaine Nardo, but she did agree to go on one date. Did they kiss at the end?
  7. On Cheers, Sam dates Rebecca and marries Diane, but did he ever kiss Carla?
  8. On The Dick Van Dyke Show, Rob suspects Sally Rogers and Buddy Sorrell are having a secret affair. Does he ever catch them kissing?
  9. On The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Mary Richards kisses Lou Grant a couple times, but did she and Ted Baxter ever go there?
  10. On WKRP in Cincinnati, there seems to be a little chemistry between Bailey Quarters and Andy Travis when he first joins the station. Did they ever kiss?

You got 6 out of 10
It's OK if you forgot a few of these funny couples. Not every TV kiss led to love.

Greg and Marsha Brady used to make out quite a bit when not on camera (at least according to Barry Williams' book)

The answer to #4 is wrong. Mary Ann and the Professor kiss in the episode "Gilligan and the Beanstalk."

That's what I was going to say. I just saw that episode last week.

I would have included Moonlighting, and Beauty & the Beast form the 1980s.

While it is true that Matt Dillon never kissed Miss Kitty, he lipocked Festus many, many times...
thedude1500 harlow1313 2 months ago
That's a disgusting, outright lie. Festus was in love with his horse.
Stop compounding a lie. Festus Haggan had his mule, Ruth. No horsing around for him, at all.

5/10! Boy, did I flop here! Actually, I would be willing to debate Question 5 since all Trekkies know NBC didn't want a mixed kiss for fear of losing the South! However, there was definitely more between Kirk and Uhura in the 2009 reboot...a lot more!!!
Contrary to your belief, the KISS did occur. ALL Trekkies know this.
It occurred, as the answer says, in the episode 'Plato's Stepchildren', first aired on November 22, 1968/Season 3, Episode 10.
The way NBC got it pass the censors, it was a forced kiss.
