A totally weird weekend begins when after Eddie slips and hits his head, he and Shauni respond to a stranded jet skier when they find Gilligan and Mary Ann stranded on a nearby island. Taking them back to Baywatch headquarters, things get even more weird when Captain Thorpe wants to make a TV movie about Gilligan, Mary Ann and the all the Baywatch team with millions he just won in a lottery. While taking a boat out to show the two "castaways" around, they run into a storm and Eddie, Shauni (Ginger), Gilligan, Mary Ann, Harvey (the Professor), Captain Thorpe (the Millionaire) and Garner (the Skipper) get stranded on another tropical isle in the middle of nowhere and it really becomes "Gilligan's Island."

Willy Gilligan: I can't belive this. We're shipwrecked again!
Mary Ann Summers: But at least we're all safe. That's the important thing.
Captain Don Thorpe: Skipper, what are we going to do? I just bought my first corporation. Thorp Corp, and I so wanted to be there this morning for they're putting my name on the door.
Shauni McClain: What about the movie? They could give my part to someone else.
Willy Gilligan: You'll get used to that being shipwrecked.
[canned laughter from a laugh-track is heard]
Eddie Kramer: What was that?
Willy Gilligan: You'll get used to that too.

Baywatch episode: Just Sit Right Back & You'll Hear a Tale
20 December 2006 | by joandra_vandowall-1See all my reviews

This episode is not on the season 2 DVD. I've been wanting for this episode and as soon as this was released, I immediately looked at the backing to read all the episodes, but instead of "Just Sit Right Back & You'll Hear a Tale" for the 16th episode, it reads "Steakout At Surfrider Beach. So, whoever sent in the episode as being for season 2 and episode 16, it isn't so. I'm disappointed to not find the episode I spent my money to get. I read the episode list, while I was at the store, where I purchased it, and thought, 'well, maybe, it's under another title.' I had to be able to open the box first to read the synopsis in order to know what the episode is about. No match. It's still a good show, nonetheless, but I would like to be able to get the episode I believed to be in season 2.
