				TEASER

FADE IN: EXT - HUT - DAY - CREDITS OVERLAYED

	Gilligan is seen riding the bike unit that is powering 
	the washing machine.  The skipper is lying on a lounge 
	near the hut obviously doing very little. 

				SKIPPER
			How do I get these crummy jobs!  Laundry is a 
			WOMAN'S job.  After all a man works his way 
			up to be the captain of his own ship...he 
			should get a little respect!  I'll take that 
			back...a whole lot of respect!  Why a captain 
			rates a salute...not a, hey you!   For goodness 
			sakes I always GET assignments I should be 
			giving 'em out!  If anybody on this island is 
			entitled to something that...

	During the skipper self pity speech, Gilligan appears 
	to be concerned about something and gets off the bike.  
	He opens the washing machine and is search for 
	something.  The skipper finally notices what Gilligan 
	is doing.

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan?  GILLIIGAN what are you doing!?

	Gilligan finally finds what he's been looking for.

				GILLIGAN
			Thought I lost it!

	Gilligan pulls out a rabbit's foot from the washing 
	machine.

				SKIPPER
			Lost what?

				GILLIGAN
			My good luck charm.

	Gilligan is squeezing out the water and flicking it on 
	the skipper.

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan that's an old wives tale.

				GILLIGAN
			No it's isn't, it's a rabbits foot!

				SKIPPER
			I know exactly what it is but anybody that 
			would think that that would bring them good 
			luck has got to be out of their mind!

				GILLIGAN
			I believe it!

				SKIPPER
			I know, that's exactly what I mean!
			No get back to the laundry!

	Gilligan is still squeezing out the water and heads 
	back to the bike unit.

				GILLIGAN
			I wonder if it works when it's wet?

	The skipper now aggravated gets up and grabs Gilligan 
	and leads him back to the bike unit.
	
				SKIPPER
			Gilligan are you gonna let me put you in the 
			drivers seat or are you gonna get up there!?

	Gilligan gets back on the bike and starts to peddle.

				SKIPPER
			Now that's better...now let's finish this 
			laundry.

	As Gilligan is peddling, he looks up and notices 
	something in the sky.

				GILLIGAN
			Hey Skipper!? It works it works!

				SKIPPER
			What works, what is it you're talking about?!

				GILLIGAN
			It works even better when it's wet...look!

INSERT: SHOT OF A MAN COMING DOWN IN A PARACHUTE

				SKIPPER
			For goodness sakes that nothing but a man in 
			a parachute now will you start peddle...
			A man in a parachute!

				GILLIGAN
			Yeah skipper!  We're rescued we're rescued!

	Gilligan starts to kiss his rabbits foot and the 
	skipper tries to get the parachutists attention.

				GILLGIAN
			Oh boy!

				SKIPPER
			Down here!  Over here!

INSERT: SHOT OF A MAN COMING DOWN IN A PARACHUTE

				GILLIGAN (O.S.)
			Oh yeah!

	
								FADE OUT:






				ACT ONE

FADE IN: EXT - JUNGLE - DAY

	The skipper and the professor are out in the 
	jungle searching for the downed parachutist.

				SKIPPER
			Oh professor did you find anything?

				PROFESSOR
			Not a sign.

				SKIPPER
			I'm sure that parachutist came down dead 
			center...he should be right on this part of the 
			island.

	Gilligan is seen running on camera carrying a magazine.


				GILLIGAN
			Skipper!  I found it I found it!

				SKIPPER
			Where!? Where!?

				GILLIGAN
			Right here right here!

	Gilligan holds up the magazine.

				PROFESSOR
			Gilligan that's a comic book!

				GILLIGAN
			I know, it's my favorite one...I lost it.

				SKIPPER
			You're a great help!

			Come on professor let's check over here.

				PROFESSOR
			You know he could've gotten tangled in a 
			tree.

				SKIPPER
			Well certainly he could've.

			Gilligan you go look that way!


				GILLIGAN
			Alone?

				SKIPPER
			Well certainly alone. Why not alone?

				GILLIGAN
			Because I'm at the scary part.  You see here 
			Fossil Face has Davy Davis All-American boy. 
			See that!

				SKIPPER
			Oh never mind the comic book!  Go that way!

				PROFESSOR
			Skipper? Are you sure you saw someone 
			parachute down?

				SKIPPER
			I'm positive professor.

CUT TO: EXT - JUNGLE - DAY

	Gilligan is walking alone reading his comic book.  He's 
	not aware of where he's going.  

				GILLIGAN
			Ah ha Fossil Face.  Just because you have 
			Davy Davies tied to the buzz saw and because 
			you have his tried and true buddy...friendly 
			and lovable Lester Al Lewis tied to the 
			railroad tracks does not mean that...

	Gilligan turns the page.

				GILLIGAN
			Oops, I guess it does.

	Gilligan continues to walk and read as he walks into 
	what appears to be a robot still attached to the 
	parachute harness. The parachute risers lead off to the 
	parachute caught in a tree. Gilligan doesn't notice it.

				GILLIGAN
			Oops, excuse me sir...

	Gilligan looks up and sees the robot.

				GILLIGAN
			It's Fossil Face!! It's Fossil Face...

	Gilligan runs away from the robot and gets caught up in 
	the parachute.  He frantically tries to get loose.

				GILLIGAN
			I give up!  I give up!  I give up!  

			I give up!

	Gilligan gets himself untangled and takes a look at the 
	robot.  He approaches the robot with caution and 
	examines it.

				GILLIGAN
			Hello.

				ROBOT
			HELLO

				GILLIGAN
			My name is Gilligan.

				ROBOT
			MY NAME IS GILLIGAN

				GILLIGAN
			Hey! We both have the same name!

				ROBOT
			HEY   WE BOTH HAVE THE SAME NAME

				GILLIGAN
			Professor!  Skipper!  I found him! Her...it... 
			Skipper professor I found it! I found it I 
			found it!

				SKIPPER
			All right Gilligan for goodness sakes you 
			don't have to yell I know that you found it...

	The skipper finally sees what Gilligan found.

				SKIPPER
			A robot!?

				GILLIGAN
			Yeah!

				SKIPPER
			Oh for goodness sakes that's just what we 
			needed...a tin fugitive from the Wizard of Oz!

	The professor finally arrives on the scene.

				SKIPPER
			Oh professor, meet our rescuer.
				PROFESSOR
			Well that's fantastic!

				GILLIGAN
			Huh?

				PROFESSOR
			Well it's obviously an experimental model. 
			The Air Force must be using it for some sort 
			of survival test.

				GILLIGAN
			It's a real live robot!

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan, robots arenít alive!

				GILLIGAN
			This one is cause it can talk!

				SKIPPER
			Yes and I'm sure you two will have very 
			interesting conversations together.

				PROFESSOR
			Robots have been programmed to talk.

				SKIPPER
			I know but if I was ever seen talking to this 
			refuge from a junkyard...they'd think the 
			skipper lost all his marbles!

				ROBOT
			THE SKIPPER LOST HIS MARBLES

				PROFESSOR
			Why, it must have a blank roll of tape and an 
			automatic relay mechanism.

				GILLIGAN
			You mean what ever I say to it, the robot 
			will repeat it back?

				PROFESSOR
			Yes!

				SKIPPER
			Oh great.  We've got a mechanical Gilligan!

				GILLIGAN
			I wonder what else they made it do?


				PROFESSOR
			Gilligan!  You just hit upon the key 
			word...they!  They sent it up, and they'll come 
			looking for it.  And when they do...

				SKIPPER
			They'll come and rescue us!
			They'll rescue us!
			Robot robot you're beautiful!

				ROBOT
			YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL

				SKIPPER
			Thank you...

				GILLIGAN
			Come on! Let's go tell the others!

	Gilligan grabs the robot by the arm and tries to pull 
	it but it doesn't budge.

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan for goodness sake that thing must 
			weigh a thousand pounds!

				PROFESSOR
			Well if can talk it must be programmed to 
			walk.

				GILLIGAN
			Yeah let's try it.
			Robot...follow me!

	The robot doesn't move.

				GILLIGAN
			Robot, walk!

	The robot raises it's arms, lifting Gilligan partly off 
	the ground and begins to walk.  Gilligan, now trapped, 
	walks on tiptoes trying to walk ahead of the robot.

				GILLIGAN
			That way!

	Gilligan points, and the robot turns.

DISSOLVE TO: INT - HUT - DAY

	The robot is standing in the middle of the hut as the 
	professor is examining it. Gilligan watches on. 


				GILLIGAN
			But you haven't asked it any important 
			questions like who won the World Series or 
			the Rose Bowl or anything.

				PROFESSOR
			Well I asked informative questions and I got 
			informative answers.

				GILLIGAN
			Yeah.
			(Trying to sound like the robot)
			I WAS LAUNCHED FROM HICKHAM FIELD HAWAII
			PURPOSE RADIATION DETECTION FLIGHT
			DESTINATION VANDENBERG AIR BASE CALIFORNIA

				PROFESSOR
			Well we also learned its model XR one 
			thousand...and what's more important, I think 
			I've solved the schematic problem.

				GILLIGAN
			Is that good?

	The professor now gives the robot verbal commands.

				PROFESSOR
			Raise your right arm!

	The robot raises its right arm.  So does Gilligan.

				PROFESSOR
			Ah yes the schematic pattern is the key to 
			how to activate it.

			Raise your left arm!

	The robot raises its left arm...so does Gilligan.

				PROFESSOR
			Gilligan the possibilities are unlimited, and 
			until the Air Force finds our friend, we can 
			put it to all sorts of uses!

				GILLIGAN
			Will it bring water from the spring?

				PROFESSOR
			Raise your left leg!

	The robot raises its left leg...and of course so does 
	Gilligan.

				PROFESSOR
			I believe I can program it to do all the 
			unpleasant tasks on the island!

				GILLIGAN
			Even the laundry?

				PROFESSOR
			Twirl your right arm!

	The robot twirls its right arm...and again so does 
	Gilligan.

				PROFESSOR
			Gilligan, this mechanical marvel can be 
			taught to do everything a man can do...and it 
			can do it better!

FLIP TO: INT - HUT - DAY

	Mary Ann is in their hut along with the robot. Mary Ann 
	has a broom and is showing the robot how to sweep.

				MARY ANN
			Now you sweep like this...back and forth, back 
			and forth.  

	Mary Ann hands the broom to the robot. 

				MARY ANN
			Sweep!

			Back and forth, back and forth.
			Ooo this is going to be fun!

			That's fine, that's fine!

			Now sweep the other way.

	The robot continues sweeping and is heading towards the 
	hut wall. The robot doesn't respond to Mary Ann's voice 
	commands.

				MARY ANN
			Well turn around!

			Well sweep the other way!!

	The robot continues in a straight line right through 
	the hut wall and into the clearing outside.

				MARY ANN
			Oohh!!

FLIP TO: EXT - HUT - DAY

	Ginger is lying on a lounge near the hut while the 
	robot does the dishes at the table. 

				GINGER
			Are you going to take all day?

	Ginger gets up from the lounge chair and approaches the 
	robot. She starts to fiddle with the controls located 
	on the robot's chest.

				GINGER
			Which one of these makes you go faster?

	The robot starts to go much faster but isn't very 
	accurate.  It starts throwing plates in every 
	direction.

				GINGER
			Oh!   Oooo!  Aaahhhh!  Aaahhhh!!

	Ginger takes cover behind the lounge chair.

				GINGER
			Help professor!  Help! HELP!! Aaahhh!!!!

FLIP TO: EXT - HUT - DAY

	The skipper and robot are standing next to the drum 
	used as a washing machine.  The robot is loading the 
	drum with clothing. 

				SKIPPER
			Now close the lid!

	The robot closes the lid.

				SKIPPER
			All right, get aboard and start peddling!

	The robot mounts the bike unit used to power the 
	washing machine and starts to peddle.  The skipper lays 
	down on the lounge near the hut. 

				SKIPPER
			You are a captain's dream! 

			What a crew!  A crew that takes orders 
			without questions...(he laughs)

	The skipper relaxes and places his cap over his eyes.  
	Gilligan walks on camera from the side of the hut.  He 
	walks over to the skipper and raises his cap. 

				GILLIGAN
			Skipper?  Are you asleep?

				SKIPPER
			Yes!

				GILLIGAN
			When you wake up will you tell me if you've 
			seen my rabbit's foot?

				SKIPPER
			Have you lost that again!?

				GILLIGAN
			Well if I hadn't lost it then I wouldn't have 
			to ask you if you've seen it because I'd 
			still have it.

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan for goodness sake...

	The skipper notices that the robot is gone.  It appears 
	that Mr. Howell is going to use the robot for something 
	far more important then laundry.

				SKIPPER
			Mr. Howell!  Mr. Howell, come back here with 
			that robot!

	The skipper gets up and runs off camera after the 
	robot.  Gilligan starts looking inside the washing 
	machine.

				SKIPPER
			Stop!  I'm...I'm not done with him I've got to 
			have him finish the laundry! Now go back and 
			finish the laundry!

	The robot complies with the skippers orders and turns 
	around and heads back to the washing machine.

				MR HOWELL
			No...but the robot and Gilligan are caddying 
			for us.

				SKIPPER
			Oh no he's not his gonna do the laundry!

				MR HOWELL
			No no Mrs. Howell is waiting at the first 
			tee.

				SKIPPER
			Well I'm sorry if Mrs. Howell is waiting, 
			she'll just have to stay waiting.

	Gilligan is looking in the washing machine for his 
	rabbit's foot again.

				MR HOWELL
			I'm willing to pay him double I don't 
			understand.

	The robot, having returned, dumps Gilligan headfirst in 
	to the washing machine.  The robot, now back on the 
	bike unit, is beginning to give Gilligan a good 
	cleaning. Meanwhile Gilligan is upside down making all 
	sorts of bubbling and gurgling noises.

				SKIPPER
			What's that?

				MR HOWELL
			Well it could be the mating call of the Red 
			Crested Hickenlooper it's the season you 
			know.

				SKIPPER
			It was a call for help!

				MR HOWELL
			Oh then its definitely not the call of the 
			Red Crested Hickenlooper, he's quite capable 
			of...

				SKIPPER
			Over there...look!

CUT TO: EXT - HUT - DAY

	The lower half of Gilligan is seen sticking out of the 
	washing machine.  It's being agitated back and forth as 
	the robot peddles the bike.

CUT TO: CLOSE UP OF GILLIGAN'S FACE AS SEEN THROUGH THE 
PORTHOLE OF THE WASHING MACHINE.

CUT TO: EXT - PUTTING GREEN - DAY

	Mr. and Mrs. Howell are playing golf.  They are at the 
	green making ready to putt.

				MR HOWELL
			A...darling my a...ball is in your line I'd...I'd 
			better mark it.

	Mr. Howell drops a marker for his ball quite far away 
	from where his ball actually is and a lot closer to the 
	hole.

				MRS HOWELL
			I'm a long way away Mr. robot!

				ROBOT
			IT WILL BREAK TOWARDS THE OCEAN ACROSS THE 
			GRAIN DOWN HILL RIGHT OF THE PALM TREE PLAY 
			IT THRE FEET TO THE RIGHT OF THE HOLE

				MR HOWELL
			With those directions should knock it right 
			off the island.

	Mrs. Howell plays the shot just as the robot suggested, 
	and although the ball seems to be possessed by spirits, 
	makes it's way right into the hole.

DISSOLVE TO: STOCK SHOT OF PALM TREES.

CUT TO: EXT - HUT - DAY

	Everyone is either seated or standing around the 
	communal table as the professor comes form around the 
	hut with the radio.

				PROFESSOR
			This is a very interesting news program 
			coming in on the radio.

			Listen to this everybody!

				RADIO
			...AND THE DRONE PLANE WHICH ACCIDENTALLY 
			EJECTED THE ROBOT XR ONE THOUSAND, LANDED AT 
			VANDENBERG AIRFIELD.  SINCE THE PLANE WAS 
			OPERATED BY REMOTE CONTROL, THE OFFICIALS 
			HAVE NO WAY OF KNOW THE AREA WHERE THE ROBOT 
			WAS EJECTED.  THEY'VE ANNOUNCED THAT A SEARCH 
			FOR THE ROBOT WOULD BE NEITHER ECONOMICAL NOR 
			SUCCESSFUL, AND THEREFORE, NO SEARCH, WILL 
			TAKE PLACE.

				PROFESSOR
			Oh no.


				SKIPPER
			And we thought that robot was gonna get us 
			rescued.

				GILLIGAN
			Well he's so smart maybe he can figure out 
			something!

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan for goodness sakes, robots don't 
			think, they only do what you tell 'em to.

				PROFESSOR
			That's it!  If we can figure out what to tell 
			him, he could rescue us!

				SKIPPER
			Are you serious!?

				PROFESSOR
			I certainly am!

	The professor walks up to the robot as if to ask a 
	question.

				PROFESSOR
			How would you like to do us a very big favor?

	The robot indicates his willingness by nodding.

								FADE OUT:






				ACT TWO

FADE IN: STOCK SHOT OF HUT EXTERIOR.

CUT TO: INT - HUT - DAY

	The professor is examining the robot, which is bent 
	over at the waist on the table.  Gilligan and the 
	skipper are also present.

				PROFESSOR
			I'm fixing the robot so that our auditory 
			impulses will activate its memory spools...and 
			in that way the particular problem poised 
			will be answered.

	The professor replaces the hatch cover on the robots 
	back and tightens the thumbscrews.

				PROFESSOR
			Well the simplest way to explain it is with a 
			demonstration.

			I think we can use him now.

				SKIPPER
			Oh...well I'll help you get him up.

				GILLIGAN
			A thousand pounds!?

				SKIPPER
			Oh yes...a thousand pounds.

				PROFESSOR
			Robot! Rise!

	The robot rises from the table and stands upright.

				PROFESSOR
			Now gentlemen, what is the most logical way 
			to get off the island?

				GILLIGAN
			The same way we got on...by boat!

				SKIPPER
			Very good little buddy! I'm very proud of 
			you!

				PROFESSOR
			Exactly!

			Now if it has the information of any of its 
			spools, we'll get an answer.


			Can you build a boat?

				ROBOT
			YES I CAN

				PROFESSOR
			And how long will it take you to build this 
			boat?

				ROBOT
			SEVENTEEN HOURS FOUR MINUTES ELEVEN SECONDS

				SKIPPER
			WOW! That means we can be aboard early in the 
			morning.

				PROFESSOR
			Right!  All right build us a boat and start 
			at once.  And that gentlemen, is that!

	As the robot starts to turn and leave it steps on the 
	skippers foot causing extreme pain.

				SKIPPER
			Ooop! Aaah!
			Two Thousand pounds!

				GILLIGAN
			A thousand pounds.

				SKIPPER
			Whose foot is this anyway!  Don't just stand 
			there Gilligan!   Go out there and tell the 
			others to get packed!

FLIP TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - MORNING

	The skipper, Gilligan, the professor and Mr. Howell 
	approach the lagoon from down a path.  Each one carries 
	luggage.

				SKIPPER
			Can you beat that!?  The women still can't 
			decide what to wear on the boat!

				MR HOWELL
			You...you can't blame them you know, Bon voyage, 
			first night out and all that sort of thing.

				PROFESSOR
			I'm extremely curious to see the boat.

				GILLIGAN
			What boat?

				SKIPPER
			The boat he built!

				MR HOWELL
			Well I can't see a thing!

				GILLIGAN
			Maybe he built us a submarine!

				ROBOT
			YOU DID NOT ASK FOR A SUBMARINE

				SKIPPER
			Wa...well I don't think he built a thing!

				MR HOWELL
			I'm going to speak to the head of your union!  
			No more fringe benefits, no health or 
			welfare.  No more nuts bolts or machine oil!

				PROFESSOR
			Oh please Mr. Howell.

			Did you build us a boat?

				ROBOT
			YES

				PROFESSOR
			Well where is it?

				ROBOT
			IN THE LAGOON

				PROFESSOR
			Well why can't we find it?

				ROBOT
			YOU ARE NOT LOOKING IN THE RIGHT PLACE

				MR HOWELL
			Well I'm sorry it's the only lagoon that we 
			have!

				GILLIGAN
			I found it!  I found it!

				SKIPPER
			Look at the boat he built!?

				GILLIGAN
			Gee isn't it neat!? It's a two masted 
			schooner, and it's got two lifeboats and a 
			binnacle and look, the pin rail!

				PROFESSOR
			Oh it's my fault.  I should have specified 
			the size and type of vessel.

				MR HOWELL
			Well its not too late, perhaps he can build 
			us a bigger ship!

				PROFESSOR
			Well it's worth a try.

			Can you build us a larger boat?

				ROBOT
			I HAVE BEEN PROGRAMMED TO BUILD A CARRIER 
			DESTROYER OR MINE SWEEPER

				MR HOWELL
			Well we might as well go first class.
			Build us a...carrier!

				ROBOT
			A CARRIER REQUIRES FOUR HUNDRED AND TWELVE 
			THOUSAND TONS OF STEEL  SEVEN THOUSAND TONS 
			OF ALUMINUM...

				PROFESSOR
			Reject! Never mind that last order!

				MR HOWELL
			Perhaps if you said a...a pretty please!

				PROFESSOR
			We're going to have to concentrate on some 
			other device.

			It's obvious the robot can't build a ship 
			without steel.  

			Well...we'd better break the bad news to the 
			girls.

				MR HOWELL
			You goofed didn't you!?

				ROBOT
			I AM NOT PROGRAMMED FOR THAT INFORMATION

				MR HOWELL
			I wonder what next years models are gonna 
			look like?

				ROBOT
			I AM NOT...

				MR HOWELL
			Oh shut up!

	Mr. Howell Gets upset and pushes one of the buttons on 
	the robot's chest.

				MR HOWELL
			Power windows...

	Gilligan approaches the robot with the model boat.

				GILLIGAN
			I think you did a swell job.

				ROBOT
			THANK YOU

FLIP TO: INT - HUT - NIGHT

				MR HOWELL
			There must be some way this robot can get us 
			off this island.

			If he were human, I'd offer him more money.

				MRS HOWELL
			Thurston, I have the most marvelous idea!

				MR HOWELL
			You have a plan?

				MRS HOWELL
			The plan darling!

			MR HOWELL
			Well what is it?

				MRS HOWELL
			I'm not gonna tell anybody but the robot!

				MR HOWELL
			Well come on, let's not keep the robot 
			waiting!

	Mr. Howell shows Mrs. Howell the door and hands her a 
	boa that is on a table. 

				MR HOWELL
			Here you are my dear.  Oh, it's for you! Yes 
			of course.  There you are my sweet.

CUT TO: EXT - HUT - NIGHT

	Mr. and Mrs. Howell approach the robot.

				MRS HOWELL
			Mr. Robot are you awake?

				MR HOWELL
			Darling they don't have to sleep!

				MRS HOWELL
			Oh, yes of course. A, Mr. Robot we'd like to 
			leave the island.

				ROBOT
			THAT INFORMATION HAS ALREADY BEEN RECORDED

				MR HOWELL
			Darling the idea, the idea.

				MRS HOWELL
			Oh, yes of course.

			Build us a bridge to Hawaii!

				MR HOWELL
			Don't be ridiculous! 

				ROBOT
			A BRIDGE TO HAWAII CAN BE BUILT FROM MATERIAL 
			ON THE ISLAND

				MR HOWELL
			It can!?

				MRS HOWELL
			Oh you see dear!

				ROBOT
			IT WILL TAKE APPROXIMATELY EIGHTY NINE YEARS 
			AND FOUR MONTHS

				MRS HOWELL
			Eighty-nine years!?
			Thurston, do you realize how old I'll be?

				MR HOWELL
			Yes, you'll be a little old to walk to 
			Hawaii.

				MRS HOWELL
			Oh dear I thought it was such a good plan.

				MR HOWELL
			Eureka I have it!

				MRS HOWELL
			Have what?

				MR HOWELL
			A way to attract attention so people can find 
			us!

			Build us a searchlight!

			Shine it on passing planes and ships.

				ROBOT
			IMPOSSIBLE NO ELECTRIC POWER

				MR HOWELL
			A...a flashlight?

				ROBOT
			IMPOSSIBLE NO CARBON FOR BATTERIES

				MR HOWELL
			Candles? Matches?  Two friendly fire flies...
			rubbing their little feet together?

	The robot overloads, sounds a ringing bell and displays 
	REJECT on his chest panel.

DISSOLVE TO: INT - HUT - NIGHT

	Mary Ann and Ginger are discussing the robot.

				MARY ANN
			Oh Ginger I think the plan is impossible.

				GINGER
			WHY?  A girl can get a man to do all kinds of 
			things for her.


				MARY ANN
			I know, but robots arenít human!

				GINGER
			Neither were some of the guys I went out 
			with.

				MARY ANN
			The professor says that robots can't do any 
			original thinking.  No matter HOW you ask 
			them.

				GINGER
			Well that's what makes it a challenge!

			See you later.

	Ginger heads out of the hut to look for the robot.

CUT TO: EXT - HUT - NIGHT

	Ginger exits the hut and walks over to the robot that 
	is standing outside their hut.

				GINGER
			Hi ya tall dark and mechanical.

				ROBOT
			I DO NOT UNDERSTAND

	Ginger gets real close to the robot and puts her arms 
	around it's neck as if to kiss it.

				GINGER
			I'll make it a little clearer for you.  You 
			see I've been stuck on this island for a long 
			long time. Understand?

				ROBOT
			I UNDERSTAND

				GINGER
			And a...I want you to get me off.

				ROBOT
			I AM NOT PROGRAMMED FOR THAT TASK

				GINGER
			Well then...gee whiz...can't you put your mind to 
			it?  I mean...concentrate for Ginger...can you?  
			Just think of what it would mean for me to be 
			back in Hollywood.

	The robot starts ejecting smoke from what appear to be 
	its ears.

				GINGER
			I'll tell you what.  If you get me back to 
			Hollywood, I'll introduce you to the 
			swingingest lady robot you ever saw.  For 
			Ginger?  Huh?  Come on...please?

	The robot becomes overheated, displays TILT on its 
	chest panel, starts to smoke out its "ears" and its 
	antenna paddles start to oscillate back and forth.


				GINGER
			Mmmmm...now your going.  I think you're 
			beginning to register.

DISSOLVE TO: EXT - HUT - DAY

	Gilligan is in the top hammock and the skipper is in 
	the bottom hammock.  They've been discussing what to do 
	with the robot.

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan, that's one of the silliest ideas I 
			ever heard!

				GILLIGAN
			I thought it was pretty good myself!

				SKIPPER
			And what's the robot suppose to use to build 
			a radio station?  Bamboo and coconuts?

				GILLGIAN
			Well maybe he could swim to Hawaii and buy 
			some tubes and wires and stuff like that.

				SKIPPER
			Gilligan if he could swim for goodness sakes, 
			we wouldn't NEED a radio station.  We could 
			program him to tell the authorities all about 
			u...oh that's the silliest thing I ever heard 
			for...Wait a minute that's it!  Little buddy 
			that's it!  You did it again!

				GILLIGAN
			What did I do what did I do what did I do!?

				SKIPPER
			Well if we can get it to swim to Hawaii, our 
			worries are all over!

			GILLIGAN
			Yeah, if we can solve one other problem.

				SKIPPER
			Eh...What's that?

				GILLIGAN
			Where we gonna find a bathing suit big enough 
			to fit him.

				SKIPPER
			Yeah, a bathing suit big enough to...
			Bathing suit!

	The skipper realizing he's been baited again and gives 
	Gilligan a disapproving glare.

FLIP TO: EXT - CLEARING - DAY

	Gilligan and the professor are with the robot.  The 
	robot and Gilligan are lying down on tables.  Gilligan 
	is trying to get the robot to learn to swim. 

				GILLIGAN
			Try this robot!

	Gilligan starts to demonstrate a swimming technique.  
	The robot doesn't do very well.

				PROFESSOR
			Awe its no use Gilligan.  It's arms and legs 
			just won't work that way.

				GILLIGAN
			Awe...How bout the Butterfly stroke...like that!

	Gilligan demonstrates the Butterfly stroke to the robot 
	and once again it doesn't look too good.

				PROFESSOR
			Awe...the arms won't go over the head!

				GILLIGAN
			Well...how about the sidestroke?  You know like 
			that!  Ya know.

	Once again Gilligan demonstrates the sidestroke to the 
	robot but the results are the same.  Gilligan appears 
	to have dropped something in the process.

				GILLIGAN
			Ooops!

				PROFESSOR
			What's the matter?

				GILLIGAN
			I just dropped my rabbit's foot out of my 
			pocket. 

	Gilligan gets up off the table to look for it.

				PROFESSOR
			I thought I taught you not to pay any 
			attention to those superstitions!

				GILLIGAN
			But it brings me good luck!

				PROFESSOR
			Luck Gilligan...is all in the mind.

				GILLIGAN
			Professor, with my mind, I need all the luck 
			I can get!

	The skipper is seen walking on camera.

				SKIPPER
			How's it going?

				PROFESSOR
			Oh not very well skipper.  The robot just 
			isn't built for swimming.

				SKIPPER
			Eh...have you tried the Australian crawl?

				GILLIGAN
			What do you mean crawl!?  He has to swim to 
			Hawaii!

				SKIPPER
			Very funny Gilligan.

				PROFESSOR
			Oh we've tried the backstroke the 
			breaststroke the sidestroke, everything and 
			it's no use.  His arms and legs simply don't 
			have the mobility of a man!

				GILLIGAN
			Well neither does a dog and they can swim.

				PROFESSOR
			Wait a minute!  Wait a minute the dog paddle 
			that's it!  I mean it's a little slow, but I 
			think his arms and legs can make those 
			motions!

				GILLIGAN
			Oh!  Well I'll try it huh?
	
				SKIPPER
			Yes don't just stand there, get on there and 
			show him how to do the dog paddle!

	Gilligan gets up on the table again.

				GILLIGAN
			Hey robot!  Robot!  Watch me robot!  Robot, 
			like this!

	Gilligan demonstrates the dog paddle to the robot who 
	in turn tries.  It appears the robot is successful.

				PROFESSOR
			Hey he's doing it skipper!  Look at that!  
			Isn't that marvelous!?

				SKIPPER
			That'll get him there!

DISSOLVE TO: EARLY MORNING SUNRISE AS SEEN THROUGH PALM 
TREES.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - EARLY MORNING

	Gilligan, the skipper, the professor and the robot are 
	seen walking into the lagoon clearing.

				GILLIGAN
			I'm still half a sleep.

				PROFESSOR
			Well I know it's early, but in case this 
			fails, I don't want the others to be 
			disappointed.

				GILLIGAN
			How can they be disappointed if they don't 
			know what we're doing?

				SKIPPER
			Don't both trying to explain professor!

				PROFESSOR
			All right, here goes for a trial run.

			Now SWIM!  Go out twenty yards and return!

	The robot starts to walk off camera as we...

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON - MORNING

	We see the robot enter the water with its arms making 
	the dog paddle motions taught earlier.  The robot 
	continues to sink deeper and deeper until its shoulders 
	are still above the water.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - MORNING

	The professor, Gilligan and the skipper continue to 
	look on as the robot heads into the lagoon.

				GILLIGAN
			Swim robot swim!  Swim!  That a boy! Keep 
			swimming! Keep swimming!  That a boy!

	The robot continues to make the dog paddle motions as it 
	sinks completely below the surface not swimming a stroke.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - MORNING

				GILLIGAN
			He sunk.

				SKIPPER
			He didn't swim a stroke!

				PROFESSOR
			Well it's his weight.  He can't generate 
			enough speed to displace enough water to keep 
			himself afloat!

				GILLIGAN
			Maybe he's too heavy.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON - MORNING

	The robot is seen emerging from beneath the water.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - MORNING

				SKIPPER
			Of all the silly ideas...swimming to Hawaii.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON - MORNING

	The robot is now completely out of the water and walks 
	off camera.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - MORING

	The robot walks on camera and up to the three men 
	watching.

				PROFESSOR
			Robot, stop!

	The robot stops in front of them.

				PROFESSOR
			Well, at least it proves he's watertight.

				SKIPPER
			Let's try that message we gave him, see if it 
			works.

				PROFESSOR
			All right.

	The professor pushes a button on the robot's chest 
	panel.  The robot sends out a jet of water right into 
	the professor's face.

				GILLIGAN
			Watertight?!

				ROBOT
			I HAVE BEEN ON A DESERTED ISLAND WITH SEVEN 
			CASTAWAYS OF THE MINNOW  THEY ARE ALIVE AND 
			WELL AND...

	The professor pushes the button again and stops the 
	message.

				SKIPPER
			Perfect!  Now all we have to do is get him to 
			swim to Hawaii!

				PROFESSOR
			Well...back to the drawing board as they say.

				GILLIGAN
			I don't say that.

				SKIPPER
			He doesn't mean you Gilligan!

				PROFESSOR
			There's just no way to get him to swim!

				GILLIGAN
			Right!  The way he was going, he could have 
			walked to Hawaii.

				SKIPPER
			Walked?

				PROFESSOR
			Walked?

FLIP TO: EXT - LAGOON CLEARING - DAY

	All are present at the lagoon clearing along with the 
	robot.

				PROFESSOR
			I know this is an outlandish scheme but it 
			seems to be our only hope.

				MRS HOWELL
			Well the whole idea's preposterous!

				PROFESSOR
			Well figuring the pressure of the water at 
			it's deepest, the normal speed of the robot 
			and the distance to Hawaii, I figure it 
			should take him roughly a hundred and eleven 
			hours.

				MRS HOWELL
			Under water?!
			Why he could walk right by Hawaii without 
			ever seeing it!

				PROFESSOR
			Mrs. Howell it doesn't have to see!  It will 
			stay on the direction it's been programmed to 
			follow.

				MARY ANN
			Well what about the valleys and the mountains 
			under water?

				PROFESSOR
			Well it has sonar to avoid undersea obstacles 
			and an automatic pilot to get it back on 
			course.

				GILLIGAN
			What about sharks and other scary things down 
			there?

				PROFESSOR
			It has no human emotions Gilligan so it can't 
			be frightened. 

				MR HOWELL
			By golly, sounds like our answer to Lloyd 
			Bridges!

				PROFESSOR
			However, I must remind you that it could run 
			into an underwater mine and blow up or get 
			tangled up in a fishing net.  So it's far 
			from certain that it will reach Hawaii.

				SKIPPER
			Well he's not going anywhere if we don't get 
			him started.

				PROFESSOR
			Right!

			Robot walk!

	The robot starts to walk off camera.  The castaways all 
	start to sing and hum a Hawaiian farewell theme.

CUT TO: EXT - LAGOON - DAY

	As the castaways continue the sing and hum the farewell 
	theme, the robot is seen walking into the lagoon as we...

								FADE OUT:








				EPILOG
FADE IN: EXT - HUT - DAY
 
	All the castaways are present. Seated or standing 
	around the communal table with the radio on it.  They 
	are all adlibbing as the skippers hears the radio.

				SKIPPER
			Wait a minute quiet! The announcement, quiet!
			Quiet!

				RADIO ANNOUNCER
			AND NOW THEY ARE ACTIVATING THE ROBOT'S 
			RECEPTOR SPOOLS TO SEE IF THEY CAN FIND OUT 
			HOW IT GOT TO HAWAII.  THE NEXT VOICE YOU 
			HEAR WILL BE THAT OF THE ROBOT.

				ROBOT
			I HAVE BEEN ON A DESERTED ISLAND
			THE PUT BREAKS TO THE RIGHT

				MR HOWELL
			Well it was a lucky shot!

				ROBOT
			SWEEP BACK AND FORTH BACK AND FORTH
			I WAS STRANDED
			THIS IS THE WAY WE WASH OUR CLOTHES

				RADIO ANNOUNCER
			LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE SCIENTISTS FROM THE 
			LABORATORY ARE CHECKING TO SEE EXACTLY WHAT 
			WENT WRONG.  PERHAPS NOW WE CAN LEARN THE 
			REASON THE RECORDED MESSAGES ARE ALL 
			SCRAMBLED.

			A WHAT!?

			LADIES AND GENTLEMEN BELIEVE IT OR NOT A 
			RABBIT'S FOOT WAS JUST FOUND IN THE ROBOT!

	Everyone is now looking directly at Gilligan who is 
	shying away from their stares.

				RADIO ANNOUNCER
			IT DEMAGNETIZED THE ENTIRE RECEPTOR SPOOLS.  
			THERE IS NOW NO CHANCE OF FINDING OUT WHERE 
			THE ROBOT HAS BEEN.  WHO REPROGRAMMED IT, OR 
			HOW IT GOT TO HAWAII.  FOR THAT MATTER HOW 
			THE RABBIT'S FOOT GOT IN THERE IN THE FIRST 
			PLACE!

	Everyone is now extremely upset with Gilligan and gives 
	him even more intense dirty looks.

				ALL
			(EXCEPT GILLIGAN)
			Gilligan!!!

				GILLIGAN
			I just thought it'd bring us some luck ya 
			know?!

	They're about to grab Gilligan for a good pounding when 
	we...
