4036b
SCENE 1
Elmo come across Gordon setting up a chess board. He plans on playing chess with Alan today, but since he always gets beaten, he's going to practice with the help of his new book - How to Be a Better Chess Player. Elmo gets disappointed when he learns there's no way he can help, until Gordon comes up with something - set up the pieces. Elmo becomes very fascinated with the "horsies" (the knights). Elmo thinks he's won the game by finding and counting them, but Gordon explains there's more to it.

SCENE 1 cont'd
Gordon explains the actual rules of the game and states he'll be practicing his opening moves, which could make or break the game. Elmo demonstrates some of his silly moves (misunderstanding what Gordon meant) and knocks over the table, spilling the pieces. One of the knights is missing, so Gordon tries substituting it with a salt shaker. Elmo begs Gordon to think of the horse's feelings and has an idea.

Elmo puts up a flyer advocating a search for the missing piece (that only Elmo can read). Some real horses answer the call (including an actual knight), but none of them are match. Just as Alan shows up, two of the racehorses (Epitaph and Fortune Cookie) have started playing their own game of chess.
