Clark: I don't see myself being a farmer when I grow up.
Lana: What do you want to do?
Clark: I'm not sure. Just as long as it doesn't involve putting on a suit and doing a lot of flying.
Chloe: Yeah, don't you think it's odd he lives out here all alone in the woods.
Clark: Thoreau did.
Chloe: So did the Unabomber.
Bob Rickman: Miss Hardwick, I'm surprised to find you in Smallville.
Lex: Don't encourage him, Victoria. It's funny, I was just saying what this town needs is more pesticides in the water supply.
Bob Rickman: I’m just like you, Lex. Government employee sets my emission levels and I abide. You have an objection?
Lex: Let’s call it an interest. Smallville’s my home now.
Bob Rickman: Lionel had mentioned that he'd exiled you here. Had dinner with him a couple of weeks ago.
Lex: Yeah? What happened, somebody more important cancel on him?
Clark: Why are you so unfriendly?
Kyle Tippet: Because I'm not interested in friends.
Clark: Everyone needs a friend.
Kyle Tippet: No they don't, because they'll always betray you in the end.
Bob Rickman: You got a problem with progress, Mister Kent?
Jonathan: No, I'm just skeptical about anyone who thinks they can solve my problems with money.
Bob Rickman: Why's that?
Jonathan: Because if I was interested in money, I wouldn't be a farmer, would I?
Clark: I think I know someone who can help.
Jonathan: No, I will not owe Lex Luthor anything, thank you.
Martha: Right now you don't have anything to owe.
Lex: Ouch. What's that all about?
Clark: I just won't cave on my opinion of Kyle Tippet. It's put me on the outs with Lana.
Lex: So you're Atticus.
Lex: Atticus Finch? To Kill a Mockingbird?
Clark: Never read it.
Lex: You should. You two have a lot in common. Small-town heroes. Believe in the truth. Not willing to back down.
Clark: How's it end?
Lex: It's not about the ending, it's about the journey.
Lex: That, my friend, is the key to leadership. Not only knowing you're right, but convincing everyone else. If you can do that, the world's your oyster.
Lex: How bad?
Dr. Toby: It's no worse than when Ozzy snorted that row of fire ants down in Queensland.
Clark: This guy really a doctor?
Lex: He was. Now he's more of an on-call specialist. You know... actors, rock stars, billionaire's sons.
Clark: How do you know him?
Lex: Long story.
Dr. Toby: What's a guy gotta do to get a drink around here?
Lex: Finish sewing.
(after being mind-controlled into kissing Clark)
Chloe: What? Why are you looking at me like that? And why is my mouth minty?
Clark: Let's just say he proved his point.
Chloe: Oh... God, did I just...?
Clark: Don't worry. It was... fine.
Kyle Tippet: Do you know what it's like to have to hide because of who you are?
Clark: Yes, I do. But when you have a gift you can't just hide in a hole and hope it goes away.
Bob Rickman: Well I'd hate to think that you failed to get the job done.
Lex: Relax. Failing isn't something I do.
Clark: It's still strange to think that he and Rickman were once best friends. Think we'll ever end up like that?
Lex: Trust me, Clark. Our friendship is going to be the stuff of legends.
