Episode Quotes
Clark: Because it just takes some time for me to adjust my abilities to new... situations.
Chloe: Wow, uhh... awkward factor 8. Umm, so, basically what you're saying is that... you're afraid that in the heat of the moment, you might... please don't make me finish this sentence, Clark!

Clark: Lex? Why is the Senate seat so important to you?
Lex: It's a stepping stone.
Clark: To what?
Lex: That's like Apollo asking Icarus why he's building wings.



Episode Goofs
Jonathan does not give the same speech as he did at the start of the episode during the end.



Cultural References
Lex: That's like Apollo asking Icarus why he's building wings.
Icarus was the son of Daedalus who, in escaping from Crete on artificial wings made for him by his father, flew so close to the sun that the wax with which his wings were fastened melted, and he fell into the Aegean Sea.



Episode References
Lex: There's always the White House!
This is obviously a reference to most recent comics where Lex is actually President of the United States.
