Quotes

[Gilligan sees everything upside down, so the Skipper reluctantly stands on his head]
Skipper Jonas Grumby: For a little guy, you sure get in a lot of trouble!
Gilligan: That's because I try harder.
Skipper Jonas Grumby: The things I do for you...
Gilligan: Sorry, Skipper, but this is the only way I can talk to you without falling down. Or up. Or sideways.
Professor Roy Hinkley: [Walks out of hut with a potion for Gilligan] Skipper, you are standing upside-down, aren't you?
Skipper Jonas Grumby: Well of course I'm standing upside-down, Professor!
Professor Roy Hinkley: Oh. Good; for a minute I thought I was working too hard.

Gilligan sees the world upside down
13 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Topsy-Turvy" finds the castaways preparing to hide from invading head hunters, but when Gilligan bangs his head he sees everything upside down. Captibora berries can provide the antidote, but their unstable properties result in Gilligan seeing double! Meanwhile, there are three head hunters waiting to practice their deadly craft, each one just missing his intended target, until all but Gilligan are captured. The Captibora extract gives Gilligan the perfect opportunity to lure them into drinking, as the sight of 35 castaways forces them to flee in terror. It amazes me after all these years how so many zany ideas could make for classic episodes that kids would remember with such fondness, keeping the series alive for generation after generation. Eddie Little Sky, in his third and final appearance (after "Gilligan's Mother-in-Law" and "Voodoo"), plays the leader, with bit player Allen Jaffe and Los Angeles Rams star quarterback Roman Gabriel the other two.
