  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Gilligan: That's a beautiful name.
      Ginger: I know. Roxane.
      Gilligan: No, Cyrano de Bergerac.

    • Thurston: I wonder is this anything like making mud pies?
      Skipper: You never made mud pies when you were a kid?
      Thurston: No. Mother had the butler do it for me.
      Skipper: Gosh you sure missed a lot when you were young.
      Thurston: It had its advantages. He took my spankings too.

    • Professor: I just finished cooking up an anesthetic for you. Anesthetic. To put you asleep during the operation.
      Gilligan: If I go to sleep, I'll mis everything.
      Professor: Would you rather stay up?
      Gilligan: Keep cooking.

    • Gilligan: If I thought a nose like this would make girls throw themselves at my feet I would've busted it years ago.

    • Lovey: After all a nose isn't everything.
      Thurston: It is if you're an anteater.

    • Professor: Now, Ginger, suppose a man is lying unconscious. He's just suffered a severe concussion. What would you do?
      Ginger: I'd give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
      Professor: That wouldn't help.
      Ginger: Wouldn't hurt.
      Professor: You're supposed to cover him with a blanket to make sure he doesn't suffer from shock.
      Ginger: And then I give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

    • Gilligan: I could just rest all day and take it easy if my name wasn't Gilligan.

    • Gilligan: Maybe one coconut weighs nothing, maybe two coconuts weigh nothing but 50 nothings weigh something.

  • NOTES (2)


    • To make Gilligan feel better, the girls tell him about Cyrano de Bergerac. However, they claim that Cyrano and Roxane ended up together, but Cyrano died just as Roxane found out he loved her. Of course, that wouldn't have comforted Gilligan.

    • Episode Title: A Nose By Any Other Name

      The title is a pun based on a line from Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet". The original line is "What's in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet".
