Doe anyone feel like we should split this trope into sub-pages, I honestly feel it's long enough to be split.
So Sticks refers to a "Gilligan Flip" and I noticed during the cut that the screen flipped horizantally.
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/discussion.php?id=2conmhdc1i6f8ke26fumfa7e in 2011 it was proposed that it is a non-cutting variant but I think Sticks destroyed that idea. Deferrkng to her, a Gilligan Flip refers to a Gilligan Cut with a screenflip used in transition.
Alternatively, Amy said politicians care and thr Mayor did not. Amy did not do opposite but did describe things different than they were.
This might be an example, but it doesn't seem to include the "cut to" part of the trope:
I would suggest that a character doing something that is not what someone else suggested (Like Riggs telling the whole police force about Murtaugh on ther toilet, or Marty getting a crazy outfit after Doc tells him to get something inconspicuous) is really different from the true Gilligan cut like from Twister where a character repeated swears that they will not do something and then the next cut is them doing it. After al, it isn't like Riggs repeatedly promised to keep it quiet, or Marty said he would get something inconspicuous. It was just one character not listening to another
Similar, yes, but there is a distinction that should be made with a separate category
This needs to be written as an example. Examples should be standalone and we gain nothing by citing one show referring to another rather than just providing the details directly.
This trope is just weird...and kinda stupid.
This is the greatest, funniest trope in the history of the world and totally not because it was the first one.
This was history in the making right here.

What happened to the "Troper's historical notice"? Was it removed by consensus, admins, or just one troper?
I think it's just that it was part of the old discussion, so when the format changed it was archived. But I'd agree with having a historical signpost to say that this is where TV Tropes was founded. Strike the earth!
It's nice to see this trope being the first one, since it's one of the first I would think of too.
But was it always named Gilligan Cut?
Gilligan Cut is a stupid name. Darn you, Grandfather Clause and sentimental nostalgia. I don't even realize it's a reference to Gilligans Island is, I'm so freaking young.

How well does it match the trope?
