    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Lovey: Thurston, do you think that's the impostor?
        Thurston: Well of course, it's the impostor. How many people are floating around the Pacific Ocean with an empty champagne bottle?

      • Thurston: I'm going to ask some pointed questions which will prove conclusively which is the real Mr. Howell.
        Impostor: All right. Fire when ready.
        Thurston: All right. Now what is your favorite reading material?
        Impostor: The social registry. You might even say it's our family Bible.
        Gilligan: Yep. That's Mr. Howell, all right.
        Thurston: All right, now, try this one. Tell me, what is your favorite exclusive club?
        Impostor: New York Stock Exchange.
        Gilligan: Yep. That's Mr. Howell, all right.
        Thurston: Very, very cunning. If you had to give up everything in the world except your money or your wife which one would you keep?
        Impostor: My money, of course.
        Gilligan: That's Mr. Howell, all right.

      • Professor: Mrs. Howell, how is he?
        Lovey: All the talks about is losing his money. I think he's is dire need of a psychiatrist.
        Professor: Well I don't profess to be a psychiatrist, Mrs. Howell. However, I do hold a master's degree in psychology.
        Lovey: Oh I wish you'd speak to him, Professor. After all, money isn't everything especially when one has diamonds and real estate.

      • Skipper: Gilligan, don't just stand there daydreaming, get to work.
        Gilligan: Skipper, I still think those wings would have worked. For a couple of seconds there, I felt lighter than air.
        Skipper: With that head of yours, you are lighter than air.

      • Ginger: We'll have a big, noisy musical comedy show and I'll wear one of those skimpy little costumes and that's sure to attract any airline pilot that's passing overhead.
        Mary Ann: You're kidding. They fly at 20,000 feet.
        Ginger: Well so what? When it comes to girls in skimpy costumes airline pilots have radar.

      • Lovey: Thurston, you must never do that again. Swimming to the mainland simply isn't practical. Especially at this time of year when the water's so cold.
        Thurston: That impostor will ruin me. Reduce me to a pauper.
        Lovey: Well after all, you have some money here on the island.
        Thurston: Money. A few hundred thousand dollars. That's petty cash. Back home, that's interest on my interest.

      • Thurston: Skipper, do you really think this contraption is safe?
        Gilligan: Sure, if she gets you on the shipping lanes before it sinks.
        Thurston: Oh good. Before it sinks?
        Professor: Relax, Mr. Howell. I guarantee you this pontoon boat is 100% watertight.
        Thurston: I hope so, because I am not.
