  • Quotes

    • Professor: Gentlemen, I have some news.
      Skipper: Good news?
      Professor: Well, there's some good news and some bad news.
      Skipper: What's the good news? We could sure use some.
      Professor: There does seem to be an antidote for the bite of the mantiscani.
      Skipper: Hey, that's great, Professor.
      Thurston: The bad news?
      Professor: We don't have any of the ingredients here on the island. However, I have some more news, some good and some bad.
      Skipper: What's the good news?
      Professor: It's possible to use substitutes.
      Thurston: And the bad news?
      Professor: I'm not sure we can find all the substitutes. These are the things we'll need: calcium carbonate, cellulose sulfide, and ferric nitrate.
      Thurston: You buy those syllables wholesale?
      Professor: I know it sounds complicated, Mr. Howell. But all of these substitutes can be found in relatively common sources: Clam shells, papaya root, mustard plants.
      Skipper: Oh well fine, Professor. We'll get on it right away.
      Professor: Just a minute. There's more news.
      Thurston: Good news and bad news.
      Skipper: What's the good news?
      Professor: In 24 hours, I can make enough antidote to save Gilligan.
      Thurston: My turn. The bad news?
      Professor: It won't do the rest of us any good.
      Skipper: What difference does that make, Professor? We weren't bitten.
      Professor: The mantiscani bug travels in swarms of millions. Chances are, by sundown, we'll all be bitten.
      Thurston: They wouldn't dare bite a Howell. Would they?
