Gilligan vs. Maynard

CAPTAIN: Gilligan!

GILLIGAN: Over here, skipper.

CAPTAIN: A million things to do around the hut. Gilligan, what are you doing?

GILLIGAN: I'm building a bathtub.

CAPTAIN: You're building a bathtub?

GILLIGAN: It's not finished yet.

CAPTAIN: Thanks a lot for telling me.

GILLIGAN: After I finish I've got some sticky stuff to spread around so it won't leak.

CAPTAIN: You'll pardon my saying so, Gilligan, but isn't this a little big for a bathtub?

GILLIGAN: Not for me, I like a lot of boats in my tub.

As for me, i always liked him as Maynard G. Krebs in Dobie Gillis. I thought, "WOW. So THAT'S what beatniks were like!!!"

And i could never figure out why he was always so dirty!! Were beatniks dirty? i don't ever remember thinking that Sal Paradise (Jack Kerouac) was dirty, but i sure thought Dean Moriarty (Jack Cassady) was.....

Probably because he was from Denver....

Damn dirty hippies. Why is it that the people who know how to make their own soap, never seem to use it?

They smoke their soap.
For the record, hippies and beatniks are commonly but mistakenly confused. I think most beatniks didn't like hippies at all.

pretty different - sure

just ask Ned Flanders! Do you remember the episode where Ned was the principle of Springfield Elm, and he did away with detention? It was all because of his SCARY OVERLY TOLERANT BEATNIK PARENTS!!!!

You say tomato, I say potato, or something. Mr. Denver looks like a hippie in the above picture. I guess I don't have enough experience distinguishing the two.
