Recap

Lois is at the Kent farm, trying to get through to the VRA agency. When someone finally answers, she knocks over a glass running to the floor, but the representative has nothing to tell her. Lois threatens her without success and the representative hangs up. As Lois cleans up the glass, she hears Clark come in the front door and runs to hug him. However, she soon realizes that he seems distracted. Lois explains that the VRA released her a couple of days ago, and Clark explains that the VRA captured the heroes at Carter's funeral, but let them go. She goes to get him something to eat while Clark picks up the glass... and cuts his finger. He tells Lois that the government took away his powers, but he doesn't remember how. Lois doesn't remember anything either. As Clark starts to stand up, he is suddenly overwhelmed by flashbacks of being strapped to a table and someone conducting experiments on him: Chloe. He snaps out of it and tells her what he remembers of her cousin Chloe...

Episode Quotes
VRA Representative: Ma'am, don't get huffy.
Lois: No, I am not getting huffy. I am a general's daughter, I don't even know how to get huffy, okay? I do happy, I do sad, and I do "stop giving me the runaround, bitch, or I will come for you."

Chloe: Hello, Oliver.
Oliver: I'm not sure what these drugs are called, but they are working.
Chloe: You're not hallucinating, Oliver, and you're not insane. Trust me.
Oliver: Really? Well, that's kind of hard to believe, considering you just materialized out of a wall.

Clark: Lois, you're trying to tell me that all of this, all of this is fake. And that makes more sense to you than us going through some post-traumatic stress because of what they put us through?
Lois: Yes, and normally you'd think so, too.
Clark: Because Chloe said so.
Lois: Clark, you and Chloe have--have battled Luthors, you fought with demons from outer space, and you battled supernatural hexes together. In the world of Clark and Chloe, this is another day at the office.

Lois: Everything in this world that you see and hear is telling you that you shouldn't trust her. But I can tell that your heart is saying the opposite, and if I know one thing, it's that Clark Kent's heart is usually right.

Clark: How'd you do it? Trust me. I mean, back then before you found out.
Chloe: I had my suspicions.
Clark: That's what I mean. You knew that I was lying to you, and still you looked me in the eye every day and you trusted me.
Chloe: I guess that's the true test of believing in someone. Knowing that their lies are there to protect you. It's not really trust if you ask someone to explain themselves.
Clark: But that's hard.
Chloe: It's really hard.
Clark: You never gave up.
Chloe: And I never will.

Clark: Well, who knows? Maybe one day we'll get to fly in the real world.
Lois: I've always believed that you can do the impossible. And one day you will.

Oliver: So where is this emergency exit out of Narnia?

Oliver: All right, Alice, where's the rabbit hole out of here?

in the 1865 novel Alice in Wonderland, Alice enters Wonderland by falling down a rabbit hole.

Chloe: But I only have a few minutes to unplug this little Truman Show and get you back to the land of the living.

The Truman Show is a 1998 movie about a man raised in a fake town and whose life is broadcast without his knowledge as a scripted reality show.

Chloe: I told you, Dorothy, this is all a dream.

At the end of The Wizard of Oz (1939), Dorothy Gale is told that her trip to Oz is just a dream.
