    • Gilligan: The boat. How about the boat? The boat. Ginger: The rescue boat will arrive- Gilligan: When? When? Ginger: "Not soon enough for friends so true, Look for the boat when the moon is blue."

    • Gilligan: Ahoy there, fellow captain. Skipper: Ahoy there, follow captain? Gilligan: Now hear this sweepers, man your brooms, fore and aft, and do all those dirty jobs I used to do. Skipper: Gilligan, do you feel all right? Gilligan:Ginger read her crystal ball. And guess who'll be the captain of his own ship? Skipper: You. Gilligan: Yo-ho-ho and a bottle rum! Skipper: Gilligan, you couldn't captain a toy ship in a rain barrel. Gilligan: Yeah. If I get to be captain, you can be my boatswain. Skipper: Boatswain? Gilligan: Chief Pretty Officer? Skipper: Gilligan, I'm a captain. Gilligan: I don't think a ship can have two captains. Skipper: That isn't exactly what I had in mind. Gilligan: You're jealous because you're afraid that I'll be a better captain that you. Skipper: Gilligan, one thing I do know for sure, you're gonna be a smarter captain than I am. Gilligan: I am? Skipper: Yes, because you're not gonna hire a first mate as dumb as the one I hired. Gilligan: You're right. I'm not gonna hire a first mate as dumb as the one you hired. That's me.

    • Professor: Ginger, don't tell me you've fallen for your own act. Ginger: Why? I predicted the rescue ship, and the radio confirmed it. Professor: But that was just a coincidence. Ginger: Oh. All you skeptics are all the same. What you don't understand you call a coincidence.

    • Mary Ann: Oh why don't you look where you're going? Gilligan: I wasn't going. I was just standing. Mary Ann: Why do you always stand where other people are going? Gilligan: Why are you mad at me? Mary Ann: I'm not mad at you. I'm mad at [Ginger]. Gilligan: Why are you yelling at me? Mary Ann: Because! Gilligan: That's not a good reason. Mary Ann: It's a good enough reason for you.

    • Skipper: From now on, all the junk that everybody asks you to stare for them stays on your side of the hut. Gilligan: What a, I gonna do with it? Skipper: That's your problem because it's on your side. I'll stay on mine, you stay on yours. Gilligan: Well how do I get to my side without going through your side? Skipper: You get to your side from the outside. On the inside, you stay off my side. Now, did you figure that out? Gilligan: No, but how come you got that side? Skipper: Because, I'm the captain. Gilligan: Skipper, we're on land now. When we're on land, we both have equal rights. Skipper: What was that?! Gilligan: I said I got rights, too. Skipper: Gilligan, you've got what I decide you've got, and that's all.

    Trivia (1)

    • The Professor makes a mistake in this episode. He attributes the quote "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive" to William Shakespeare; actually it was Sir Walter Scott who wrote that particular axiom.
