He also mentions a childhood friend nicknamed "Stinky" in [[Forget Me Not]]. * He played football in high school and has a picture of himself in his chest in [[Forget Me Not]]; he also alludes to this in [[The Hunter]]. * He was at Guadalcanal during World War Two. The names of the men in his unit were Wikowski, MacInery, Lefcowitz, Evans, Ferguson, Entwhistle and Harris with the radio manual. Entwhistle was a gunner's mate. * As the biggest man on the island, the Skipper is very sensitive to any remarks concerning his weight. * Through the series, the Skipper comments the one thing he misses most is a nice thick steak. He expands on his preference in [[Forward March]] when he says he has his steak with onions, potatoes, fresh celery and carrots. * In the [[Hi-Fi Gilligan]] episode, the Skipper's missed punch at Gilligan knocks down a tree! In [[Allergy Time]], his sneeze can also knock down a tree! * In the [[Nyet, Nyet, Not Yet]] episode, the Skipper admits he can drink scotch or bourbon but not Vodka. * Several times in the series, the Skipper mentions having a busy social life and chasing girls. * A recurring gag in the series is the Skipper repeatedly hitting Gilligan with his hat, usually for saying or doing something stupid. However, there are several variations of this. The Professor once removed Gilligan's hat so the Skipper could hit him. Once, Gilligan took the Skipper's hat and hit himself with it. In [[Don't Bug the Mosquitoes]] and [[Splashdown]], Gilligan annoys the Skipper, and it's [[Mr. Howell]] that bonks him on the head with the Skipper's hat for the Skipper. In [[Smile, You're on Mars Camera]], after the Skipper is stuck in the tree glue, Gilligan knocks the Skipper with his own white hat! * Although a former captain in the U.S. Navy during World War Two, the Skipper's military record is sketchy and contradictory. He mentions he was the best poker player in the 7th Fleet in [[Plant You Now, Dig You Later]], but he also mentions being in the 177th Infantry in [[Forget Me Not]] and a cook on an aircraft carrier in [[Wrongway Feldman (Episode)|Wrongway Feldman]]. He also mentions in [[Allergy Time]] that he had three ships shot out from under him during World War Two.
