Lois and Clark leave a Daily Planet
charity gathering for kids, and Lois admits she's nervous that it was their first public outing. She observes that Oliver didn't seem too happy to see them dating, but Clark says he can handle it. He invites her to the farm for a walk but she turns him down. He leans forward and kisses her, and she kisses him back. However, then she says that she's reluctant to be rushing through their relationship, insisting this is the relationship she wants to get right. Clark hears a woman calling for help with his super hearing, makes his apologies, and quickly leaves...Read the full recap
Lois: I'm a little nervous. It was our first public outing as kind of like a couple.
Clark: Emphasis on "kind of." You wouldn't even let me help you with your coat.
Lois: I held your hand.
Clark: Only when you were taking hors d'oeuvres out of it.
Lois: Well, it is a lot to wrap your head around--Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Who knew?
Clark: I did.
Zod: The apple is such a plain yet fascinating fruit.
Clark: What are you doing here?
Zod: You know, it was the apple that launched the Trojan War, one of the great epic battles of all time. And, in many religions here, it's the apple's fall from the Tree of Knowledge that represents the fall of Man. Now, I found that story quite interesting because it so aptly illustrates how humans hoard knowledge. Whereas our own Kryptonian religion... now, that teaches knowledge should be shared... by all.
Clark: I'm sure you didn't come here for a Sunday school lesson. What do you want?
Zod: Look, Clark must have mentioned me. I'm Zod.
Lois: Can't say that he has. And being a championship-wrestling fan, I'd definitely remember a name like that.
Chloe: Any time you have to pull the trigger on making a difficult decision, you always just walk away.
Clark: I do what's right.
Chloe: You're not willing to do what's necessary.
Clark: Pulling the trigger on Oliver--was that necessary?
Chloe: Not if it really shattered him. Where are you going?
Clark: To pick up the pieces.
Clark: It's okay, Lois. He's just a truck.
Lois: Oh, Clark, come on. That's like saying Tommy Lee's just a drummer. Sometimes I worry there is no poetry in you.
Clark: You just have to look deeper.
They rather obviously re-use the exact same exterior shot twice, once just before Mia/Speedy attacks Oliver, and then again just after Chloe finds the arrow match.
