Despite his behavior, Franklin proves to be competent in some cases. In the episode "[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Critic#ep8 Marathon Mensch]," he trains Jay to run in the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_City_Marathon New York marathon]. Also in the episode "[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Critic#ep21 Frankie and Ellie Get Lost]," much to his wife's surprise, Franklin proves that he can be a problem-solver and an apt handyman by building a shelter, a signal fire (to demand more rum from passing pilots), and training an ape as a butler.
