Lex invites Clark to a Metropolis Museum display of the breastplate of Alexander the Great, and notes that it has an S symbol on it and was reputed to provide the wearer with invulnerability. Lana arrives and Clark is surprised to see her. He realizes that Lex set them up, and Lex makes a hasty exit. Whitney is there, clearly uncomfortable, and Lana goes to get her aunt. Lex tells Clark that he can't keep avoiding Whitney and that the quarterback is the enemy. One of Lex's old girlfriends, Victoria Hardwick, comes in.

Episode Quotes
(pointing to a "S"-type symbol)
Lex: You know it belonged to Alexander the Great? They said the design symbolizes strength and courage.
Clark: I can't exactly see myself going into battle with that on my chest.
Lex: Darker times call for darker methods. His opponents thought he was invincible.
Clark: I didn't know you were such a history buff.
Lex: I'm not. I'm just interested in people who ruled the world before they were thirty.

Clark: Whitney's not my enemy.
Lex: Yes he is, Clark, and the sooner you realize that the sooner you'll find a way to win Lana. Just remember, keep your friends close and the quarterback closer.

Lex: How is Sir Harry?
Victoria Hardwick: Distant, inaccessible, and rich. I believe you know the type.
Lex: What's he want with me?
Victoria Hardwick: He understands you may have negative feelings toward your father.
Lex: Sir Harry has always had an incredible grasp of the obvious.

Lana: Clark, what happened to you last night?
Clark: I wasn't feeling well. Guess I'm not much of a city guy.
Chloe: You can take the boy off the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the boy.

Sam Phelan: We're both rational adults. Let's sit down and...
Jonathan: I don't think a rational adult drops a generator on top of a teenage boy, do you?

Chloe: It figures you'd side with her.
Clark: I'm not taking anyone's side.
Chloe: Yeah right, Clark, you're completely objective in all things Lana!

Victoria Hardwick: So what are you suggesting?
Lex: You came to play on my hatred of my father. Now I'm going to play on yours. Why take one company when you can take two?
Victoria Hardwick: You know they'll probably kill us.
Lex: Probably. But that's what makes life interesting.

Episode Goofs
When Lex enters the Beanery, Phelan is playing pinball. He turns to face Lex, his hands empty. There's a quick camera cut to Lex's face, and then back to Phelan, who now is near-instantly holding a cup of coffee.

As Phelan talks to Lex at the Beanery, the score on the pinball machine behind him changes between camera cuts, and shows at least three different numbers.

When Clark enters the Torch office to talk to Lana, he doesn't have a jacket. However, when he leaves, he picks up a jacket and carries it out with him.
