Professor: You know, I had a good look at that ape.
Gilligan: Yeah. He was looking at me real good, too. Real hungry-like.
Professor: It's one of that rare breed, who like the rattlesnake of the genera Crotalus can actually be stared into immobility.
Skipper: Oh you mean, if you keep looking at him, he'll keep looking back.
Professor: That's right. If you don't move, he won't move. It's kind of like hypnosis.
Skipper: Wish me luck, boys.
Professor: No, wait a minute, Skipper. I'll do the staring. We need your strength to carry one of those boxes.
Gilligan: Well Professor, you better pick up the other box too. I can't budge either one of them. And besides, I'm a good starer.
Skipper: I wish there were another way.
Gilligan: Honest, I really am a good starer. I once stared at a man-eating tiger for two hours and 20 minutes and he didn't bite me.
Skipper: But Gilligan, that tiger was behind bars. And that ape isn't behind any bars.
Professor: However, if you remain frozen, he'll remain frozen.
Gilligan: Well I got a good start. I got cold feet already.
