    • Thurston: (to Gilligan) For extraordinary valor in facing the enemy that out weighed you at least 600 pounds I proudly present you with the Order of the Diamond Cufflink.

    • Professor: You know, I had a good look at that ape. Gilligan: Yeah. He was looking at me real good, too. Real hungry-like. Professor: It's one of that rare breed, who like the rattlesnake of the genera Crotalus can actually be stared into immobility. Skipper: Oh you mean, if you keep looking at him, he'll keep looking back. Professor: That's right. If you don't move, he won't move. It's kind of like hypnosis. Skipper: Wish me luck, boys. Professor: No, wait a minute, Skipper. I'll do the staring. We need your strength to carry one of those boxes. Gilligan: Well Professor, you better pick up the other box too. I can't budge either one of them. And besides, I'm a good starer. Skipper: I wish there were another way. Gilligan: Honest, I really am a good starer. I once stared at a man-eating tiger for two hours and 20 minutes and he didn't bite me. Skipper: But Gilligan, that tiger was behind bars. And that ape isn't behind any bars. Professor: However, if you remain frozen, he'll remain frozen. Gilligan: Well I got a good start. I got cold feet already.

    • Skipper: We've got to get that ammunition away from [the gorilla]. Professor: The ape was obviously on the island during the way. He saw the soldiers using the weapons and decided that's the way men play together. Skipper: He's liable to start playing again while we're sitting down at dinner or swimming in the lagoon. Professor: We've got to get into that cave. Gilligan: Maybe there's a back door. Skipper: Certainly, and a basement andSkipper: three bedrooms and two baths. Gilligan: I don't think it's that big.

    • Skipper: That's just dandy. Who ever has those grenades has a machine gun, too. Professor: I wonder why they stopped firing. Skipper: I don't know. They could've picked us off like sitting ducks. Professor: I can't see anything. Gilligan: You can come up now, Mr. Howell. Skipper: Yes, that is unless you're frozen down there. Thurston: I'm listening for the sound of approaching horses, a trick I learned from General Custer.

    • Thurston: The military thing is to come to attention when your superior officer enters a room. Lovey: You mean you're superior to me? I don't think I like that, Thurston. Thurston: Lovey, let's just say that I outrank you. Lovey: I'm not certain I like that, either. Mary Ann: Good for you, Mrs. Howell.
