Goofs

The Professor, relying solely on a measuring stick (while ignoring the unchanging shoreline) to conclude that the island is sinking, displays astoundingly poor deductive skills and a questionable knowledge of geology. See more »

The Captain goes down with his island
17 June 2016 | by kevin olzakSee all my reviews

"Quick Before It Sinks" finds the Professor's measuring stick for the lagoon revealing the news that the island is sinking into the ocean. Gilligan's first thought is to start walking around on stilts, which inspires the idea to keep above the water as long as possible by building a hut on the island's highest point. Unfortunately, the women pick this very time to begin landscaping during the day, the men trying to keep awake at night building the new hut. The Professor rocks the boat before learning that guess who has been tampering with his equipment. A standalone script that must have been written for the first season.
