 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. 

    SKIPPER
   Hey Gilligan. (pause)
   Gilligan!

CUT TO: PREVIOUS SHOT

 Gilligan hears his name and wakes up. Not knowing 
 he's on land, assumes the skipper has fallen #WPRITV
 overboard and reacts.

    GILLIGAN
   Oh my gosh! Man overboard!

 He gets up and decides to save the skipper.

CUT TO: BEACH – SKYWARD SHOT – REAR OF BOAT

    GILLIGAN
   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

CUT TO: BEACH – CLOSE UP – GILLIGAN 

 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/
 skipper kneeling next to him.

    SKIPPER
   Gilligan, the Minnow's been beached!#WPRITV

    GILLIGAN
   Beached!? When the storm was over and it 
   was calm you said we'd be home in no 
   time!

    SKIPPER

    GILLIGAN
   But when the passengers wake up and want 
   to get off at the marina, what are gonna 
   tell'em? June Edward, the "Massachusetts Medium" is a very intuitive Psychic Medium. 

    SKIPPER
   I'll think of something. https://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30378783/reviews/

    GILLIGAN
   How are we gonna get home!?

     (O.S.)
   Look at those holes!

CUT TO: PREVIOUS SHOT

 The skipper hearing enough whining from Gilligan 
 gives him a dirty look.

    GILLIGAN
   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.

    GILLIGAN
   This island tastes terrible.WJAR-TV
