Josie: Trent, Josie Trent and I'm not interested. Professor Z: Oh, well that's too bad because we were just discussing the possible molecular deconstruction of a Science Professor. Josie: Then I better go, wouldn't want to keep you from that... Professor Z: 'Fraid you might learn something? (pause) Josie: Molecular deconstruction? Cells are made up of molecules; molecules are made up of atoms; once you start dealing with atoms, quantum mechanics kicks in, and all the rules go out the window. Ergo, You can take an atom apart to the subatomic level, and put it back together again. In theory, you can molecularly deconstruct anything: plants, chewing gum, even something less complex. Like a science teacher. Professor Z: Ouch. Josie: My guess: your professor was sucked into a vortex. Later.

Most episodes deal with the castaways trying to get off the island, but their attempts seem to always be foiled by Gilligan. In the mentioned episode, Gilligan loses his memory after getting hit on his head by a coconut, and afterwards his memory recovers when he's hit again. Lucas thinks that this technique might work in Professor Z's case.
