Episode Quotes
Lois: (to Simone) I suggest you turn your boy toy back to normal before I reach over and rip out those pearly white teeth of yours.

Clark: I don't know of any other way to say it. The truth is... my feelings for you have changed.
Lana: Clark, I want you to look me in the eye and tell me you don't love me.
Clark: I don't love you.

Lana: I have been so stupid.
Lex: You're not stupid. You just put your trust in the wrong person.

Lois: Maybe I can talk to her about my nail-biting issue?
Chloe: I'm afraid it's a little late for that.

Milton Fine: I'm not sure you understand me, Mr. Luthor. If we don't work together, there may not be a Luthor Corp or a government left. Think about that on your flight home.

Clark: I'm asking you nicely - step aside.
Lois: Look, I didn't want to have to do this but if necessary, I'm gonna have to take you down!

Clark: You're crossing a line here, Chloe. And I have always trusted you so how about this time, you trust me? Let me live my life. Back off.

Lex: How's your progress?
Simone: Let's just say that Lana Lang won't be sending Clark anymore Valentine's Day cards.

Chloe: What happened to you, Clark?
Clark: I fell in love.
Chloe: I don't think you fell. I think you were pushed... off a cliff.

Clark: So, you got the dorm room all to yourself?
Lana: All to ourselves.
Clark: That sounds great, it really does... but I have to get back to the farm, it's gonna rain tomorrow, I have to put up some tarps.

Lois: Smallville? What the hell are you doin'?
Clark: Lois, I'd like you to meet Simone... my new girlfriend.

Simone: (to Clark) Ever since I was little I dreamed about my knight in shining armour. Now that dream's actually come true.

Lex: (to Milton Fine) Well, I hate to disappoint you but... I already know what you are. It's not a professor of history, is it? No, it's something much more exciting. Tell me, what's the benefits package of a government operative working for a covert branch of the State Department?

Lana: So, either you're planning an exotic vacation, or this professor is somewhere in Central America?
Lex: He was last seen in Honduras - my jet leaves in an hour.
Lana: Lex, let me come with you, maybe I can help.
Lex: Lana, I appreciate your passion but I have no idea what I'm walking into. I can't risk putting you in danger.

Lex: You think the ship's in Honduras.
Milton Fine: Well, I'm certainly not here for the coffee.

Clark: Simone, with my powers, I could hurt you.
Simone: That's a chance I'm willing to take.

Chloe: I don't get it. I mean if it was Red K, you wouldn't be doing chores. And if it was silver K, you'd be afraid that pitchfork over there was gonna turn you into a shish kebab.

Chloe: Oh my God! I just knocked out Martha Kent!
Lois: Hello? The woman was about to wallpaper her living room with my brain matter!

Simone: Clark, you're gonna kill Lex Luthor.
Clark: (smiling) He's a dead man.

Lois: (to Chloe) Look, I know that you have this whole hero worship thing with the guy but face it, Clark is no different than any other red-blooded male. His brain - it's not his commanding officer!

Lex: Clark, you've been hypnotised! How else could you throw me across the room like that?!

Episode Goofs

This is in reference to the 1972 movie, Last Tango In Paris about an American businessman who begins an affair with a French woman. Their illicit relationship is based solely on sex.

Chloe: (to Clark) Ohh, thank God you're fully clothed! I was afraid I'd be walking in on some sort of Dangerous Liaison.
