If They Never Met is the twentieth episode of the fourth season and the 127th episode of the Bewitched series. The episode was completed by June 20, 1967.


During a fight, Darrin says he sometimes wishes he and Samantha never met, and Endora makes him disappear and decides to see if that is really true. Endora takes Samantha to an alternate universe to see what life would have been like if they never met.

In the alternate universe, Endora and Samantha find Darrin engaged to marry Sheila Sommers, but he is not happy about her ideas and plans. Samantha and Endora follow Darrin to a party at Sheila's house and then Samantha follows him to his favorite bar. He talks to his friend, Dave, about his situation and even says: "I'm not sure I love her." When he leaves, Samantha makes herself visible, walks into the bar and they bump into each other. Darrin is surprised, but buys her a martini. After they talk, he decides to break off his engagement and cancel the wedding. He begs Samantha not to leave, and she realizes he is miserable without her and returns home.

After Endora brings Darrin back home, he admits to Samantha that he would be unhappy without her.
