When the Skipper (Alan Hale Jr.) shows signs of losing his strength, the Professor (Russell Johnson) concludes that the Castaways are seriously deficient in Vitamin C. Alas, there is only a handful of orange seeds left on the island, which Gilligan (Bob Denver) is assigned to guard throughout the night. Inevitably, our hero falls asleep at his post, leading to a surrealistic "Jack and the Beanstalk" nightmare in which the Skipper is cast as the Giant! Incidentally, the "Little Gilligan" in the dream sequence is played by Patrick Denver, the real-life son of series star Bob Denver.
