Trivia

Phil Silvers was cast as a producer partly because his production company was actually producing the show. See more »

Goofs

When Gilligan mentioned that they can put Hamlet to music, Skipper asks "Hamlet to music"? But there was already an opera "Hamlet" in 1868, written by Ambroise Thomas with the lyrics by Michel Carré and Jules Barbier. So it is "Hamlet with music". See more »

Quotes

Gilligan: [as "Hamlet," flubbing his line about "get thee to a nunnery" to Ginger, playing "Ophelia"] There is nothing left to do, Ophelia... but to get thee to a notarary.
[Ginger nods]

When TV comedy was worth watching
5 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To those folks who thought Gilligan's Island was a "dumb" TV show, they weren't listening to the genius lyrics to the tune of Carmen from this episode.

Neither a borrower, nor a lender be Do not forget, stay out of debt Think twice, and take this good advice from me Guard that old solvency! There's just one other thing You ought to do To thine own self be true!

Relevant yesterday, today and tomorrow. This episode is absolute entertainment.

S&P Downgrades U.S. Credit Rating From AAA to AA+

I read a summary of the movie coming out and I was disgusted. Liberal Hollywood has destroyed all the good TV shows from the past. Now we most have real "dumb" comedy, like SNL, and Jon Stewart, Adam sandler (absolute talentless clown),

You could watch this episode with a 5 year old and a 90 year old. Watch SNL and you have to sit threw down syndrome jokes about Sarah Palin's daughter!?? That's what comedy has been reduced to - the 2-minute Hate frenzy described by Orwell in 1984.
