Episode Quotes
Clark: So, what are you in the mood for?
Lois: Oh, I'm in the mood. Just not for breakfast.

General Sam Lane: So, nothing much has changed around here. Your mother still own the place?
Clark: It is in her name, but I...
General Sam Lane: I see. You live in your mother's house and you work in a basement, is that correct?

Clark: I'm not on trial, Sam. You want to protect the United States, but as soon as you're threatened, everyone else's rights go out the window. It's no wonder Lois is too afraid to be herself around you.
General Sam Lane: Are you questioning my relationship with my daughter?
Clark: You have been questioning me all day.
General Sam Lane: It's my right to protect my family!
Clark: It may be your right. But you're wrong to think we don't belong together. I love your daughter, and I don't want a day to go by that I'm not with her.
General Sam Lane: Well, I hope you enjoy today. Because it's the last day you'll ever spend with her.

Rick Flagg: Don't you see? America's turning against us. We have got to fight back. Show strength. Make them choose us as their leaders.
Clark: You'll only be stirring up antihero hysteria. Violence isn't the answer.
Rick Flagg: Violence is the only answer.

Lucy Lane: Lo, can we talk?
Lois: That depends. Can you form a sentence without lying to my face?

Oliver: We've, uh, we've survived tax audits and typhoons together, Tess. We're practically family at this point.
Tess: We've come a long way. From the middle of the ocean to the top of the city.
Oliver: I can work with that.

Clark: The girls love you, sir. You're their hero.
General Sam Lane: But I think Lois has got herself a brand new hero now, uh?
