    • QUOTES (4)

      • Professor: Ginger, you know what you're supposed to do.
        Ginger: Yeah, attract a gorilla. I hope my agent doesn't hear about this.

      • Professor: He's not only strong, but he's smart too. We'll have to camouflage this pretty well to fool him.
        Gilligan: If you put a punch of bananas in here, I'd go get them.
        Skipper: That's right, Gilligan. But as the Professor just pointed out, the ape is smart.

      • Lovey: It is insured, isn't it?
        Thurston: That won't do us any good financially.
        Lovey: Why not?
        Thurston: We own the insurance company.

      • Gilligan: Sorry, it's empty.
        Professor: Uhh! You don't have to tell us what happened.

    • NOTES (1)

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • In the scene where Mr. Howell is preparing to put out the torch in order for the diamond to be secretly returned, Mrs. Howell refers to the ABC TV series The Fugitive when she comments how clever Mr. Howell is and if he was a detective he would have caught "The Fugitive" by now.

      • Episode Title: Diamonds Are an Ape's Best Friend

        The title is a spoof of the well known song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend". The song was written for the musical "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" with music by Leo Robin and lyrics by Jule Styne. In the movie it was memorably sung by Marilyn Monroe and it became one of her trademark tunes.
