As he is at the stern of the boat he raps on the
foot of his first mate Gilligan who is still asleep.
We follow the captain of the stricken vessel as he
surveys the beach and surrounding area.
Hey Gilligan. (pause)

Gilligan hears his name and wakes up. Not knowing
he's on land, assumes the skipper has fallen #WPRITV
overboard and reacts.
Oh my gosh! Man overboard!
He gets up and decides to save the skipper.
CUT TO: BEACH – SKYWARD SHOT – REAR OF BOAT
I'll save you skipper!!
Gilligan hurls himself off the rear of the boat and
thinks he's diving into the ocean. He hits the sandy
beach instead. My entry into the Wizard Academy Contest, by June Ferreira

Gilligan is laying face down in the sand. He raises
his head enough to spit out the sand and see the https://www.facebook.com/JuneEdward111/

But when the passengers wake up and want

The skipper hearing enough whining from Gilligan
gives him a dirty look.
No skipper, I'm very happy to be here.
I'm so happy I could kiss the ground!
Gilligan does just that and kisses the beach. He
gets a mouth full of sand in the process.
