Zod: Jor-El... I'm guessing you're not here to cheer on the troops?
Jor-El: Call it a mission of redemption. I'll need all those blood samples, I can't let this project go on.
Medic: My orders come from the ruling council itself. You have no authority here.
Zod: Medic, when the most renowned scientist in Krypton tells you to stop, you stop! If the ruling council wants my blood, let them find it on the battlefield!
Zod: When we find this traitor, we will force him to give us what's rightfully ours. We will be gods on this planet and Kandor will rise again!
Chloe: If you raced here to see me, it must mean the I Love Lois show was preempted this week.
Clark: Come on, you know I always speed over when you call. Although I may be responsible for your cousin vanishing from prime time.
Chloe: I was wondering why she skipped town without saying goodbye. What's up?
Clark: I, uh... I kissed her.
Chloe: Oh, yeah, that would definitely send her packing! I mean, no offense to you, Clark, it's just Lois' typical response to intimacy is usually to blow outta town.
Clark: I just don't know what happened, I went over to talk to her and the next thing I know, I couldn't stop myself.
Chloe: Yeah, I'm not surprised, Clark. You've had feelings for Lois since, like, the 1930s!
Oliver: You know, Clark, if you wanna bury me in the desert for going on that date with Lois... you could've at least taken me to Nevada.
Clark: Oliver, let's not...
Oliver: I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm still gonna put up a fight. But maybe we could've hit the Strip before the main event, you know what I mean? Maybe a little Blue Man Group... maybe a little Carrot Top. You know what I'm getting you next year for Christmas is a sense of humor.
Jor-El: I, Zod, am in your debt.
Zod: Never forget that.
Tess: I don't expect you to believe me, but I had to take drastic measures to protect you, and Kal-El.
Jor-El: How can you protect anyone when your only concern is yourself?
Tess: Well, your Kryptonian instincts must be on the fritz, because I am not the enemy here.
Zod: This is my favorite discovery on your little planet. The wine cup is the little silver well where truth, if truth there be, doth dwell.
Tess: See, now I'm impressed. You've read your Shakespeare.
Zod: He's amusing, but I find the pleasure I get from wine much more satisfying. Every sip reveals a new riddle, a new truth. Just like you, Tess. Every time we're together, I discover something new. I can't wait to see what my next sip reveals.
Tess: The bitter truth, that I'm not interested. We're keeping this partnership strictly professional.
Zod: The lady doth protest too much.
Tess: Whether she doth or not, I can guarantee she won't be revealing anymore... tonight.
Tess: Clark... I have waited so long for you to admit your true Kryptonian heritage. I always hoped you'd tell me because you trusted me. But I'll take what I can get.
Clark: I'll never be able to live up to everything he accomplished.
Oliver: I don't think anyone wears that super-shield quite like you.
