    • Gilligan: Hey Professor, great news. They stopped.
      Professor: Who has stopped, Gilligan?
      Skipper: The spouts stopped spouting.
      Gilligan: The volcano stopped volcanoing.
      Professor: Erupting.
      Gilligan: That too.
      Professor: Unfortunately, it simply means that the gases Professor:are gathering force and could explode at any moment.
      Skipper: That's terrible!
      Professor: However, there is a way to neutralize the volcano by countering its energy force with an equal energy force.
      Gilligan: Oh that's terrible!
      Professor: No, that's good.
      Gilligan: Sounds terrible.
      Professor: In layman's terms, if I could explode a bomb in a tunnel near the base of the volcano its force would blow it out the same way you'd blow out this candle.
      Skipper: But Professor, where are you gonna get a bomb that big?
      Professor: From materials right here on the island. As a matter fact, I'm making a crude form of nitroglycerin powerful enough to blow off that entire mountaintop.
      Gilligan: You're making nitroglycerine?
      Professor: Well yes. Sulfuric acid from the crystallized copper in the caves, glycerol from papaya seeds, and potassium nitrate from the rocks at the lagoon.
      Gilligan: You hear that? He's making nitroglycerine.
      Professor: Any questions?
      Gilligan: Yeah. I have a question.
      Professor: Good, Gilligan. What's your question?
      Gilligan: What's nitroglycerine?
