Episode Information[]

A routine rescue sends Eddie on a madcap adventure to "Gilligan's Island."


  • The entire plot of this episode is a spoof of the 1964 comedy series Gilligan's Island.
    • Guest stars Bob Denver (Gilligan) and Dawn Wells (Mary Ann) also reprise their former roles from that particular series.
  • Erika picked this as her favorite episode. She assumed the role of a redheaded actress and she loved her hair transformation – not to mention sharing a kiss with the actor who played Gilligan himself, Bob Denver.
    • She would also later compete in the reality tv show "The Real Gilligan's Island" on the show's second season in 2005 as Ginger. Nicole Eggert (Summer Quinn) would compete in the very same show the year before.
