We're translators. And we don't give a sh&t!

English subtitles:

Captain: "Checkmate."

Marshall: "Ah. [Looking up at the spectator.] Well, Don Matteo, thanks for your help."

Captain: "Marshal, it's your move." [Nota bene: in English, the Marshall just lost on the last move!"

Don Matteo [whispering]: "Move the knight."

Marshall: "Checkmate!"

So, we had checkmates two moves in a row in the same game!

I rewound to listen to the Italian again. The first line is actually "Check with the Queen."
