glue my baseboard?

The baseboard was "placed" in back of our toilet/sink in our tiny bathroom without finishing nails just placed against the dry wall. I needed the toilet and sink put back in quickly and the plumber didn't have finishing nails for the baseboard. The baseboard stays in place, but I'd like to secure it and caulk it.

So what to do? I can barely squeeze between the toilet and wall/sink to do anything. I was thinking a quick drying glue to squirt behind the baseboard. I wouldn't mind sitting in the floor in front of the toilet facing the wall with my legs holding pressure on the baseboard for ??? 15 - 30 minutes, for the glue to dry.

Other ideas, or what glue to use?

Any sort of construction adhesive (liquid nails) would probably work fine.

Thanks, I was probably over thinking how long it would take for any glue to set.. (Visions of the baseboard falling down.) I'll press the baseboard to the dry wall for some minimal amount of time, could even put a few strips of tape over the baseboard/drywall if looks like it might not hold tight. You've given me the confidence the liquid nails will work fine.

Construction adhesive will have enough initial stiction to hold, they also make high grab adhesives if you want to over achieve!
