Eunice, a.k.a. "Lovey" Wentworth Howell is one of the main characters. She was played by actress Natalie Schafer.

Personality ProfileEdit

Mrs. Howell is always proper and poised, a common rich lady. She, though, is less concerned about money than her husband, Mr. Howell. in the episode The Kidnapper, she comments, "It's only money". Mrs. Howell is sometimes sensitive but usually gets what she wants from her husband.

Mrs. Howell also a knack for hosting parties and planing other things. As evidence of this she once tried to get Gilligan and Mary Ann together, then the Professor and Ginger. Aside from her reputation of a match-maker she is known for being sweet and gracious―although she is jealous of Erika Tiffany Smith, who was listed before the Howells in the Social Register. She is also a member of the Daughters of the Revolution.

Like the Professor, she is very diligent that people around her use proper English, correcting Gilligan with 'whom" over "who." She also speaks a bit of French.

OutfitsEdit

The Howells have more outfits than the castaways in total. Mrs. Howell has different things like mink coats and diamond brooches, it is not known why they brought it on the boat, though.

In addition to clothing, Mrs. Howell brought along furs (fox, beaver, chinchilla, mink and sable - easily recognized by Gilligan), jewelry (her engagement ring, emeralds, pearls, rubies, earring, a diamond brooch and bracelets), perfume (Gold Dust #5, Warm Afternoon, Happy Hours and Foggy Nights), a hairdryer, a typewriter, a cuckoo clock, an anniversary clock (possibly the one Mr. Howell sold to the Skipper), her social calendar and her parasol among other things.
