Episode Summary

EDIT
Of Slain Kings on Checkered Fields
AIRED:
X Middle School's best hope to break a losing streak is Checkmatey, a flamboyant rapper who is X's finest chess player. Unfortunately, somebody is out to get him - is it Tyson Pelarez, leader of the Society of the Preservation of Ethics in Chess? Or is it Nelson Kelloch, Checkmatey's biggest rival? (Checkmatey also has a crush on Ingrid, which repulses her). Fillmore and Ingrid are on the case - but the clock is ticking down to the championship match and Checkmatey is nowhere to be found...moreless

      • Tyson: Giant Ketchup and Mustard Ball
        The ketchup and mustard ball represents the colors of the Spanish flag, where modern chess originated.

      • Checkmatey II:: "Yo!"
        Checkmatey could also be based on that Jamie Kennedy character in the movie "Malibu's Most Wanted"

      • Library Banner: "I Feel the Need - The Need to Read"
        A reference to Maverick and Goose's quote from "Top Gun" - "I feel the need - the need for speed!"

      • Joyce Summitt: "I am the one who will leave you defeated, silent, listening to the lamentations of your kin!"
        A reference to this classic line from Arnold Schwarzenegger in "Conan the Barbarian": Mongol General: "Conan, what is best in life?" Conan: "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of the woman!"

      • Checkmatey: "Yo!"
        The short blonde hair, angled visor, mixed up lyrics... Checkmatey is apparently a homage to rap star Eminem.
