    • Gilligan: I don't see anything. Do you? Skipper: No. You know why you don't? Gilligan: No. Why? Skipper: Because you got a sheet over your head.

    • Skipper: I can't seem to find a coconut that's big enough for my cap. Gilligan: You should've gone to the other side of the island and got a jumbo-sized one. Skipper: I don't think that's very funny. Gilligan: All I meant is that you're a big guy and you've got a big head. Skipper: Gilligan. Gilligan: And a big heart.

    • Skipper: What's taking everybody so long? Gilligan: Maybe nobody wants to leave. Skipper: Well of course, everybody's anxious to leave, Gilligan. Gilligan: I'm not. Skipper: Well certainly, everybody wants to get back to civilization. Gilligan: I had fun here. Skipper: But Gilligan, there'll be people on the streets. Gilligan: Pushing and shoving. Skipper: And restaurants. Gilligan: Waiting for a table. Skipper: Who cares about money? Thurston: Wait a minute. Who said a dirty word? "Who cares about money?"

    • Skipper: Gilligan, we've got everything we need. Food, water, compass. Everything to help us sail home. Gilligan: Yeah, after all this time on the island, it'll feel good to be on dry land again. Skipper: Yes. Gilligan, this is dry land. Gilligan: Yeah, but it's surrounded by wet.

    • Skipper puts on a sheet pretending to be a ghost. Skipper: Hello, Gilligan. Gilligan: Hi, Skipper. Skipper: Gilligan, how does it feel to be cured? You walked right into the front of a ghost, and you weren't even scared. Gilligan: I knew you weren't a ghost. A ghost doesn't wear a sheet stamped S.S. Minnow.
