    • TRIVIA (2)

      • In "Franklin's Advice," Snail departs Franklin's house and heads for home all by himself. Yet, in a previous story, it took him over a hour just to get across a single bridge. One wonders just when he expects to be home.

    • QUOTES (20)

      • The following quotes are from "Franklin's Crystal".

      • Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could share a book with his sister and a snack with his Mom and Dad. But one day, Franklin had a problem sharing something with a friend.

      • Mrs. Turtle: It's a quartz crystal.
        Beaver: Aw.
        Franklin: I guess we're not going to be rich after all, Beaver.

      • Beaver: I've been on your trail for weeks. I think you might know something about the missing royal diamond.
        Goose: I think so, too.
        Skunk: Me, too.
        Raccoon: Yeah.
        Rabbit: Yeah, so do I.
        Beaver: Could the audience keep their comments to themselves, please?

      • Franklin: I'll tell you how it got there! Beaver took it from the treehouse!
        Goose: What?
        Rabbit: Is this part of the play?

      • Beaver: There, are you happy now?
        Franklin: Me? You took the crystal without asking.

      • Beaver: All right. Let's reserve the crystal on the calendar. That'll solve all our problems.
        Franklin: Yeah, we should have thought of this yesterday.

      • Bear: Please fasten your seatbelts and thank you for flying Franklin Airlines.

      • Franklin: If I leave it at the treehouse, Beaver will take it.
        Bear: (not the least bit impressed) So what?!

      • Bear: I'll tell you what's not fair! Listening to you guys argue about that rock all the time!
        Goose: That's right. You sure know how to spoil a nice time.

      • The following quotes are from "Franklin's Advice".

      • Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could give his friends a ride in his wagon and he could give them a cookie, too. But one day, Franklin had to give a friend advice and sometimes that's a hard thing to do.

      • Franklin: Wham! Straight off the old shell and into the net. Only you and I could make a play like that Snail.

      • Goose and Beaver: Six little monkeys, jumping...
        Snail: Excuse me! Excuse me! (moans) How many monkeys are there?
        Beaver: (giggles) I don't know. How long can you skip, Franklin?

      • Franklin: Hey, do you wanna... (was about to suggest playing in the sprinkler)
        Snail: Oh boy, do I?! Hooray!

      • Snail: (with a plastic glove on his shell) How bad is it?
        Franklin: (cracks up in a fit of giggles) Not too bad! I'm sorry, Snail. It looks like you're waving at me.
        Snail: (chuckles)
        Franklin: Commander Snail, permission to run through the sprinkler, sir!
        Snail: Permission granted.

      • Snail: I told you, Franklin: shells fix themselves. I'll see you tomorrow.

      • Franklin: If you won't tell your Mom and Dad, I will. This is more important than playing soccer, Snail.

      • Snail: I'm still part of the team, right? Even if I do have to sit on the sidelines for a few weeks.

      • Snail: You were right Franklin. I should have told my Mom and Dad. Sorry about how I acted yesterday.
