Franklin and Mr. Owl both agree that the fact that Beaver can't move her king anywhere without Franklin capturing it must be checkmate. However, this could also be a stalemate condition.
When Beaver asks what types of repair things Franklin has done and Bear says "Lots. He fixed my bike...," close-captioning credits the line to Franklin.
The following quotes are from "Mr. Fix-It Franklin".
Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He could fix a torn page with tape and he could fix himself a snack. But one day, Franklin wanted to fix something with real tools.
Mr. Turtle: There's only enough room for one repairturtle on this job.
Franklin: I can't get this thing back together. Goldie, why didn't you tell me not to do this?
Mrs. Turtle: Uh uh. Lefty, loosey, right-tighty. Remember?
Mr. Turtle: You're getting to be a real Mr. Fix-It.
Franklin: It looks like a loosey, uh, goosey problem.
Snail: Can you fix my dump truck, too?
Franklin: Sure, what's wrong with it?
Snail: It won't dump.
Snail: Wow, are those real tools?
Bear: They're real, all right. He's Mr. Fix-It.
Franklin: Are you having some trouble with your painting stand, Beaver?
Beaver: It's called an easel and yes I'm having trouble with it.
Franklin: That's the toughest easel I've ever worked in, but I fixed it.
Franklin: What happened?
Beaver: It all started when you didn't fix Bear's wheel the right way.
The following quotes are from "Franklin Has the Hiccups".
Narrator: Franklin could count by twos and tie his shoes. He liked playing soccer and he had fun playing chess, too. But one day, Franklin was too worried to have fun playing games.
Goose: I get my brooks mixed up with my ponds.
Mr. Owl: "Rooks" and "pawns," Goose.
Beaver: Mr. Owl, I can't move anywhere. Franklin can capture my king no matter what I do.
Mr. Owl: You know what that means.
Franklin and Mr. Owl: Checkmate!
Bear: Franklin doesn't have to worry because he's really good.
Franklin: You just have to play like you're the best from another school, so I can practice.
Franklin: My hiccups are gone again, Granny.
Granny: Mmm hmm.. That's odd how they stop and start again that way.
Franklin: This game is important. If I don't win, I'll let the whole class down.
Fox: I wonder what he'll be like.
Beaver: Or she. It could be a she.
Marmot: All of my friends are expecting me to win. What if I don't? I just found out my opponent is the best in the world.
Franklin: I'm not what you think. I just like playing chess.
