    • Mary Ann: We have prepared a very special dinner for you. Lovey: Well in that case, you might have selected a more congenial partner for me.

    • Thurston: Do you think that I was always healthy, handsome, and wealthy? Gilligan: Sure. Thurston: No, on the contrary. When I was a youth, I was pale, sickly looking, and inept. Rather like you my boy. Gilligan: No kidding. Thurston: Yea, I started to go downhill. Then I met Lovey, and that woman changed me. She took me, she hammered me, and she pounded me, and she molded me. Gilligan: That must have hurt.

    • Theme of episode: As Robert Burns said, "The best laid schemes o' mice and men gang aft a-gley."

    • In previous episodes, the Professor's hand-cranked, home-made record player was shown. This was the first episode to show a modern turntable that mysteriously appeared on the island with no explanation!
