Why did Tattoo always announce "De Plane" for his boss?

    was it the signal to rest of the employees on this island to hop-to and get ready for the arriving guests?

    Maybe he really thought he was the only person on the entire island who could hear the approaching aircraft..

    He had to be useful at something other than assaulting women, in real life he attacked someone. But why use force when one is so attractive?

    Announcing the plane I can understand, but what about Mr. Roarke calling out "Smiles, everyone, Smiles!" every week? I think the happy islanders were well-enough aware of the protocol that they didn't need this annoying reminder, eh?

    He figured no one else could see the plane so he was the 'island' crier!

    Maybe his dad was Radar O'Reilly and it runs in the family.
