Goofs

When Harold Hecuba returns to the stage as Hamlet after the Professor speeds up the music tempo, the door on the back wall falls off. The scene then cuts to the castaways as an audience, then back to Harold Hecuba, and the door is hanging back the way it should be. 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.
