  • QUOTES (9)

    • Gilligan: New dress?
      Ginger: Like it? I made it out of your duffel bag. I hope you don't mind.
      Gilligan: No, my duffel never looked so good.

    • Gilligan: What good is having money if you can't do something nice for your friends?

    • Thurston: My boy do you know anything about oil?
      Gilligan: No, but I worked in a gas station once.
      Thurston: The American Way: from grease monkey to president of an oil company. Just show you what a man can do if he has a little drive.
      Gilligan: He can do pretty good if he knows how to putt, too.

    • Thurston: First of all you have to list all your dependents. Do you have a wife or children?
      Gilligan: No, but I got a father about five minutes ago.

    • Thurston: [The check's] made out. But first of all, you have to fill out an income tax form.
      Gilligan: Income tax form.
      Thurston: Yes. I didn't know what your salary was and I was afraid that $3 million might kick you into a higher income bracket.

    • Professor: Why I'd love to have seen the look on Mr. Howell's face when you won all that money from him last night.
      Gilligan: So would I but it was too dark.

    • Thurston: Yes, I couldn't agree with you more. Come on, Gilligan, putt.
      Skipper: Just a moment, Howell. This boy doesn't know what he's doing. Gilligan, I know what's going on in your mind.
      Gilligan: You do?
      Skipper: Certainly. You've gotten a little ahead, and it looks like a pretty easy way of making some money.
      Gilligan: Sure does.
      Skipper: That's where you're wrong. How much do you think you can win gambling?
      Gilligan: $6 million if I can sink this putt.
      Skipper: You see? A whole afternoon wasted, and for what? What?
      Gilligan: I already won $3 million. We're playing double or nothing.

    • Thurston: Nobody hustles me on a golf course.

    • Lovey: You did much better this time, darling. You got a 34.
      Thurston: 34? I finally parred the hole.
