Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Attempting to rescue a drowning Mary Ann (Dawn Wells), Gilligan (Bob Denver) is humiliated when he himself has to be rescued by the Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.). Now Gilligan is convinced that he is a coward, prompting Mrs. Howell (Natalie Schafer) to come up with several schemes to make it seem as though Gilligan is really a hero. When all else fails, the castaways stage an elaborate ruse whereby they will pretend to be captured by headhunters, then allow Gilligan to come to the rescue. Alas, the scheme falls apart when a real headhunter shows up, placing everyone in a bind--literally!
