A treasure chest and the rule of law
5 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

"Plant You Now, Dig You Later" is a fun episode examining the law and how it applies to a certain case. While digging a barbecue pit for Mr. Howell, Gilligan uncovers a treasure chest, which the Skipper insists is his, proclaiming 'finders keepers.' Naturally Howell objects, reasoning in a business sense that because Gilligan was working on his behalf, the chest belongs to him. The Professor presides over a trial to determine rightful ownership, Ginger testifying for Mr. Howell, Skipper advising his client Gilligan. One memorable moment sees Mr. Howell, spattered by milk from the judge's coconut gavel, accusing sweet little Mary Ann of murder: "her testimony is killing me!" The verdict arrived at is the most logical, but that's just not enough for the greedy Howell, who makes an offer the others can't refuse before the chest is finally opened. Another defining episode from the sterling first season.
