Gilligan's Island was an American TV sitcom which aired on CBS from 1964 to 1967. Series one was filmed in black-and-white; later series was in color.



  • Gilligan: SKIPPER


  • Ginger: This dress is too tight.

  • Professor: When you bathed did you use the special non-allergic soap I gave you?
Gilligan: Yes, and I think scrubbed so hard I rubbed off a few freckles.


From a series two episode where Gilligan discovers seeds that allow you to read other people's minds:

Ginger: Well, do you know what I think?!
Skipper: I most certainly do!

End of Epsiode:

Gilligan: Well, do you know what I think?
Skipper: No
Gilligan: Good!

From "Gilligan Goes Gung Ho"

Gilligan: Skipper, it's against the law to lock somebody up without telling them what they did.
Skipper: (smiles) Just a moment, Gilligan...[humming]...Let's see that it?...yeah...It says here in The Criminal Law, Section 7, Paragraph 14, 'Let it be known that any man who interferes with or causes in any way a rescue to be fouled up, goes to jail for as long as the skipper says.'
Gilligan: There's no law like that in that book.
Skipper: There is now!

The Howells

Mr. Howell: As I always say; The Family that bowls together, SPLITS!
Mr Howell: A Howell never runs in the face of danger...he walks very fast.

Theme song


Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful trip.
That started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.
The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the Skipper brave and sure.
5 passengers set sail that day,
for a three-hour tour, a three-hour tour…
The weather started getting rough,
the tiny ship was tossed.
If not for the courage of the fearless crew,
the Minnow would be lost; the Minnow would be lost.
The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle,
with Gilligan, the Skipper too,
the Millionaire, and his Wife,
the Movie Star, the Professor and Mary Ann (first series: "and the rest, are"),
here on Gilligan's Isle


So this is the tale of our castaways,
they're here for a long, long time.
They'll have to make the best of things,
it's an uphill climb.
The first mate and his skipper too,
will do their very best,
to make the others comfortable,
in the tropic island nest.
No phones, no lights, no motor cars,
not a single luxury.
Like Robinson Crusoe,
it's primitive as can be.
So join us here each week my friend,
you're sure to get a smile.
From seven stranded Castaways,
Here on Gilligan's Isle.
