Ode to the mother lode
4 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

While playing through a round of golf, Mr. Howell not only sinks the ball he also sinks caddy Gilligan, in a cave that proves to have a rich vein of gold on the walls. Gilligan is sworn to secrecy about their find but it doesn't take long for the other castaways to literally become gold diggers once Mr. Howell refuses to give up any of his newfound wealth. Unable to find anything by digging themselves, the others decide to charge exorbitant amounts of money from the Howells for simple tools or even meals. None of this proves helpful in launching the SS Monnow life raft found floating in the lagoon, which quickly sinks under the weight of six bags of heavy gold. Jim Backus enjoys a field day in this one, refusing to knuckle under even when faced with Ginger's attempted seduction. He gets one last classic line after everyone else has learned a valuable lesson about greed, and not giving in to temptation: "you people are always taking the fun out of life!"
