Quotes / Just Eat Gilligan


I like the professor, he always saved their butts
He could build a nuclear reactor from a couple of coconuts
She said, "That guy's a genius"
I shook my head and laughed
I said, "If he's so fly, then tell me why
He couldn't build a lousy raft"
"Weird Al" Yankovic, "Isle Thing"

Harry: Well Buddy we couldn't very well tell people that you spent a year tryin' to figure out ways to get Gilligan off the island.
Buddy: I came up with ten thousand ideas.
Mac: Ideas? Uh, like making a bamboo raft?
Buddy: Ten thousand and one!

Without my emotions I am thinking quite logically. For example, the reason they couldn't build a boat on Gilligan's Island is because it would end the series.
Emotionless Timmy Turner, The Fairly OddParents

Man; do they realize how many times they could've gotten off that island if it weren't for Gilligan? *beat* Why don't they just kill him?
Brighton Sheffield, The Nanny

Found your pants! Series is over!
Wyldstyle, solving the central dilemma of "Where Are My Pants?", The LEGO Movie

Problem Solved, Series over.

Why does Gizmo keep producing such evil little children? If you ask me, Gizmo's the problem here...What I'm trying to say is, why hasn't Gizmo been destroyed?

For all we know, he's the only Mogwai who produces evil offspring. All the other ones might produce really, really nice, gentle, caring, lovable Mogwai like Gizmo himself. But it's Gizmo who's the problem here.

Kill it.

Ettis is one of those characters that turns up in Doctor Who at least once a season who is so obstinate and irrational he is constructed out of plot conveniences rather than characteristics. He is just there to muddy the waters, to stir up trouble and to get in the Doctor’s way. Without Ettis this story could comfortably be three parts long...Ettis handicaps events because that is what he is designed to do. Come episode four he has to be put out of his misery...There was nothing more extreme to be done with this cipher.

Invasive Procedures is also the single biggest demonstration of the problems facing Quark as a main character. Quite frankly, he’s a convenient tool for lazy writers to endanger the station. The first season had quite a few 'Quark does something illegal and/or stupid to get the plot moving' hooks in stories like Babel, Q-Less, The Passenger, Move Along Home and Vortex. Not all of them were entirely foreseeable, but it undermines the character to use him as such a convenient plot device, and it makes the regular cast look like idiots for keeping him around. Here, he makes an exceedingly stupid mistake with incredibly foreseeable consequences. It’s hard to argue with Yeto’s assessment that, in letting a bunch of armed Klingons on to an abandoned station, Quark is a 'stupid Ferengi.' ...This makes Quark look like an idiot, but also undermines the ensemble.
