Default what does a dotted line to ground mean on schematic?

Hello, I am building a small amp on perf/bread board using NJM2073d in stereo mode, and the schematic has dotted lines coming from a capacitor on each output channel going to ground, does this mean I am supposed to join these grounds together separate from the other grounds in the circuit?

its on page 4 of the data sheet.

thanks for any help

The use of dashed lines in schematics usually indicates an optional component(s) or connection. In this case the inclusion of a capacitor and resistor to control oscillation of this amplifier working in conjunction with certain speaker loads.

Hope this helps

Thanks for clearing that up. it shows the bridged circuit in the oscillation blurb, I wasn't sure if it was the same for the stereo circuit, I am still a noob, lol

thanks again.
