    • The following quotes are from "Franklin's Big Game".

    • Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could win hockey games and ball games, too. But one day, Franklin realized that the score doesn't matter when everyone's having fun.

    • Raccoon: These guys are really good. Beaver: They're amazing. Fox: They're gonna "murgalize" us. Raccoon: You mean stomp us. Fox: Same thing... only worse.

    • Fox: It's kind of hard to look forward to getting murgalized. Franklin: I think maybe we could use a little help. Let's go see Coach Porcupine.

    • Coach Porcupine: Now, children, try not to worry about winning or losing. Just have fun.

    Notes (1)

    • "Franklin's Reading Club" is the second of two episodes on the video Franklin's Reading Adventures. A Franklin First Reader by the same title is also available, however, the plot of the book isn't even anywhere close to that of the television episode, even though the fine-print claims that it is based on the events of the television script.

    Trivia (1)
