Plot hole: Most of the episode focuses on just Gilligan and the Skipper riding the capsule out to sea (although the Howells and the girls attempt to stow away with them at first). However the whole plot changes at the end... suddenly with nobody aboard the capsule, Gilligan tells the Skipper it floated off and Skipper yells at him saying "We could have ALL been on that capsule!" when it suddenly explodes thus saving everybody as if the plot now called for everyone to have been on board. It was still supposed to be Gilligan and Skipper only.
Plot hole: The scientist yells for Igor to capture the escaping Castaways, to which Igor responds "capture them yourself" in Ginger's voice. The scientist appears surprised to find out Igor is not Igor, but how can this be? He had to be the one to pull the lever to switch everyone's personalities and bodies around, so he should have already known.
Skipper Jonas Grumby: Ginger, I've got a problem... I've got a real problem... Now you're a girl, right?
Ginger Grant: Well, if you're not sure about that, you have got a problem.
Question: I'm very confused about the ending. During an interview, the interviewer says that the Navy are unable to find the castaways because Erika's log book is written in English translated from Hungarian. If her log book was translated from Hungarian to English, then how could the Navy be unable to use it to find the island and rescue everybody? She left out latitude and longitude but, there must have been something in the log book to give an idea of where the island was.
