    • Lovey: Even Ginger, whom I replaced in the part, paid me a compliment. She compared me to a famous television personality. Thurston: Oh good. Lovey: By the way, who is Mr. Ed? Thurston: I haven't any idea. I wonder why she didn't compare you to Mrs. Ed.

    • Gilligan: Gee Professor, you're doing a real neat job. Professor: Thanks, Gilligan. These jungle berries mixed with water make excellent paint. Gilligan: In case the play's a flop, we always can eat the scenery.

    • Gilligan: Mr. Howell, maybe you could back this play. Thurston: Me? Gilligan: Sure Mr. Howell. We can try it out here and if it's good we can take it to Broadway. Thurston: Well I don't know. Skipper: Why don't you do it Mr. Howell? It'll be a lot of prestige. Thurston: I've got prestige. Gilligan: If it's a hit, you can make a million dollars. Thurston: I've got a million dollars. Gilligan: If it's a flop, you can deduct it from your income tax. Thurston: Now you're talking!

    • Thurston: (about show business) It's the only business where you can be a devil when you're an angel.

    • Thurston: There's one thing I can't stand, is a mutiny before lunch.

    • Theme of episode: Compassion is an individual trait, the exclusive property of neither the poor nor the wealthy.

    • The word "angel" is used in the title as Broadway jargon. In show business terms an angel means the financial backer of a show, usually someone with pockets deep enough to cover all monetary expenses thereby guaranteeing the show will open.

    • Mister Ed: Mrs. Howell said the other castaways compared her to Mister Ed. Mister Ed, of course, is the talking horse on the show of the same name.
