Quotes from

[trying to think of a way to get off the ship-wrecked boat]
Ernst Robinson: Why don't we put up a distress flag?
Father Robinson: Don't you think we look distressed enough? Ernst, anyone who sees a ship stuck on the rocks might possibly guess it's in trouble.


Father Robinson: Don't you sometimes feel that this is the kind of life we were meant to live on this earth? Everything we need, everything, right here, right at our fingertips. You know, if only people could have all this and be satisfied, I don't think there'd be any real problems in the world.


Ernst Robinson: It's better to use your head than break your back, I always say.
