Quotes

Professor Roy Hinkley: [Sees Gilligan coming back with a lobster trap and the stick the Professor was using] Gilligan, where did you find that stick?
Gilligan: Oh this old stick? I've been using it to tie my lobster trap from.
Professor Roy Hinkley: Oh really? Well that old stick just happens to be the same stick I had been using to measure the water in the lagoon.
Gilligan: [Gulps] I've been putting it out deeper to catch bigger lobsters.
Professor Roy Hinkley: Well, that explains it. The island isn't sinking after all.

The Captain goes down with his island
17 June 2016 | by kevinolzakSee 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.
