Lana: You're quitting?
Dr. Arthur Grohl: I'm disappearing.
Lana: Don't you think that's a bit extreme?
Dr. Arthur Grohl: You'll find that when you're in as deep as we are with the Luthors, they won't just let you walk away.
Clark: Sounds like heat vision.
Chloe: Not unless your heat vision comes with a radiation setting.
Clark: (as a figure walks into the barn) Raya.
Raya: Hello, Kal-El.
Clark: How'd you find me?
Raya: Your father told me about the family he had chosen for you. About Smallville. Must've been hard growing up here by yourself.
Clark: I had my parents, I had my friends.
Raya: But no-one who really understood you.
Clark: You mean what was it like to grow up with such a big secret?
Raya: And the amazing rush of racing trains, knowing nothing can hurt you.
Clark: No matter how I think I fit in... every day, I'm reminded I'm not one of them.
Raya: You're not alone anymore. I'm here.
Jimmy Olsen: You don't think that some back alley hand-off is suspicious?
Chloe: I think Lex Luthor getting out of bed in the morning is suspicious but you need facts. You need proof.
Jimmy Olsen: Well, thanks for the popup commentary but that's where I was... well, kinda hoping that you would come in.
Chloe: Look, Jimmy, I've dealt with the Luthors before and the kind of ball they play is very, very hard.
Jimmy Olsen: Then I guess I better bring my bat.
Lex: You know, James, I was very happy to hear that Chloe finally landed a boyfriend. It appears my jubilation was premature.
Lex: Jimmy... tell Chloe Lana says hello. And if you ever try anything like this again... you'll be leaving through the window, no matter who you're dating.
Lex: I don't like playing cat and mouse games, Lana.
Lana: Is it the game that you don't like? Or the fact that someone's playing it on your level?
Raya: You cheated.
Clark: I couldn't let a rookie catch me in the last county.
Clark: What was he like? My father.
Raya: Brave, strong with the biggest heart of anyone I've ever known.
Clark: To be honest, that's not the Jor-El I imagined.
Raya: He was determined to save us. I remember helping him build your ship. He was so careful, planning every detail down to your baby blanket.
Clark: I haven't been the best son.
Raya: Your father was hard on himself, too. He felt guilty that he couldn't save Krypton. His only redemption was sending you to save Earth.
Clark: Save it from what?
Raya: Extinction. Your civilisation is going to destroy itself just like Krypton. You should know this, it was part of your training.
Clark: I haven't started my training.
Clark: Jor-El tried to warn me but I didn't listen, I mean, how could I trust someone who brought so much pain into my life?
Raya: Pain is a part of anyone's journey, Kal-El, you can't escape it. You must accept your destiny.
Baern: What's the matter, Raya? Don't recognise an old friend? It's me... Baern.
Raya: He's one of the phantoms.
Baern: How do you like the new suit?
Clark: What do you want?
Baern: To pay back your old man for giving me a one way ticket to hell. But, then he had to go and get himself eviscerated along with everyone else from that ice cube you call a planet. So, I guess you'll have to do.
Jimmy Olsen: You see those symbols? They're like hieroglyphics. Do you know what this means, Chloe? Lex is working with the Egyptians.
Chloe: Hey, I've been trying to call you. Where've you been?
Clark: Racing around.
Lana: Lex, you're obsessed. We've been through this before with the ship and something has gotta give. The box or me.
Clark: What happened?
Lex: We had an uninvited guest but we're used to that kinda thing.
Clark: Look, you don't wanna get in the middle of this.
Lana: No, you don't want me in the middle of it but it's too late. Clark, stop trying to think up excuses and just tell me what's going on.
Raya: This was all we had left of our home, Kal-El.
Clark: And now it's gone, too.
Raya: It was more than that. The Fortress was a storehouse for all the knowledge in the universe... at least all that we had. How could this happen?
Clark: I'm sorry. I don't know how to bring it back.
Raya: Your father wouldn't have given up so easily.
Clark: I haven't given up. I don't know what else to do, I've tried everything.
Raya: Everything except the training your father wanted for you.
Clark: That sound, I heard it before.
Raya: Every Kryptonian family has a unique tone. A beacon to identify itself.
Baern: So, this is Jor-El's famed Fortress of Knowledge? I thought it'd be bigger.
Clark: Doesn't matter, you won't be staying long.
Clark: You can't leave me... not now.
Raya: I'm sorry I couldn't share in your destiny, Kal-El.
Jimmy Olsen: It's not even the worst of it.
Chloe: Well, you couldn't have been demoted, I mean, you can't get any lower.
Jimmy Olsen: Try unemployment. Apparently, Lex made a call, they fired me.
Jimmy Olsen: Look, I managed to talk my way back but only as far as the basement.
Lex: I think we need to reassess some things.
Lana: Because of the box?
Lex: Because you lied to me, Lana. After all your talk about honesty.
Lana: Then I guess we're even.
Lana: The human race has survived this long. It doesn't need Lex Luthor to save it.
Lex: Do you honestly think I wouldn't have chosen you?
Lana: I guess we'll never know.
Clark: When I was with Raya, I didn't feel alone anymore.
Clark: Mom, I know how much you love me. And how much Dad... but I've always felt... different. It's because I am and Raya was the first person that I ever met who could really understand that. And I don't think I ever thought about what I'd lost. A family, a whole race of people who were just like me. For the first time, I'm ready to stop running from who I really am. From my destiny.
Martha: Your training with Jor-El, you wanna go?
Clark: But I can't, not yet. Not until every prisoner that I released from the Phantom Zone is returned. Or destroyed.
