Episode Quotes
Lionel: Is everything okay?
Lex: You tell me, Dad. Ever since the day I put on this wedding ring, you seem to have an uncanny knack for being one step ahead of me.
Lionel: I don't have time for this, I have things to do.
Lex: Like you have a private screening of that DVD? You know, documentary, the one Lana stole from me and gave to you.
Lionel: Oh, dear. I hoped married life would lessen some of your paranoia.

Lex: As hard a it is for you to believe, Lana actually loves me.
Lionel: Oh, you know so little about women, Lex. I suppose losing your mother at such an early age didn't help matters. Lana does not love you. The only reason she agreed to marry you was that I gave her a gentle yet very firm nudge.
Lex: Using my wife against me, that's deplorable, even for you. Whatever debt you think I still owe you... we are even. I want you out of my life.
Lionel: I don't think you're gonna get rid of me that easily.

Chloe: Look, Lois, take it from someone who's gone up against the Lex Luthor army more than once. Not only will victory remain elusive but you're almost certain to step on a landmine in the process.
Lois: I'm the General's daughter, remember? I live for battle.
Chloe: Not the kind of battles you can't win, Lois.

Clark: Wait, Lana. I can't lose you again. Not without telling you the truth about me.
Lana: Clark, I already know about your powers.
Clark: There's more. I'm from another planet. It's called Krypton. It's light years away, my parents sent me here to save me. They sent me to Earth just before Krypton was destroyed. Please say something.
Lana: (after kissing Clark) You're still the same Clark Kent to me.

Lionel: No, Clark, if Lana's spoken to you, I know what you must be thinking but you've gotta listen to me.
Clark: I've listened to you for too long!
Lionel: Lex is tracking a wraith from the Phantom Zone. I had to force Lana to marry him, it was the only way she could get close to him to get the information I needed to help you!
Clark: No, I never asked for your help and I never will.
Lionel: You're not a murderer, you're Kal-El!
Clark: Don't call me by that name!
John: Stop! This man is on our side. He's an emissary of Jor-El.

Lana: Lex, I can't live like this anymore.
Lex: Yeah, I don't blame you. Living a lie and a marriage you never wanted. Must take its toll after a while.
Lana: You're the expert. Setting up a nursery, an heirloom crib, the tears of joy in your eyes when you saw that ultrasound. What kind of a toll does that take, Lex?
Lex: What in God's name are you talking about?
Lana: I'm talking about the massive amounts of hormones that you injected into my veins to make me believe I was pregnant. What kind of a monster are you?
Lex: I don't know where you're getting your information from, Lana, but it's nothing but slander. You know I would never...
Lana: Don't lie, Lex. It's too late for all that. This marriage is over.

Lex: Lana... I know I'm far from perfect. But, you can't deny what we had between us.
Lana: Lex, all there is between us are lies on top of lies!

Lex: Lana, everything I've ever done... is because I love you.
Lana: You aren't capable of love, Lex. You never were.

Lana: Clark means more to me than you ever will.
Lex: (after striking Lana) Lana...
Lana: That's the last time you'll ever touch me.
Lex: You really think I could just let you walk away?
Lana: What are you going to do, Lex? Kill me? Because it's the only way you're gonna keep me in this mansion.

Lionel: It's not an ordinary phantom, Clark. It's the, uh, product of a Kryptonian lab experiment. It's been destroying one human being after the other, desperately searching for the only host that will ensure its survival... a Kryptonian body.
Clark: Where's the phantom?
John: If you were to get infected, it could kill you.
Clark: People are being killed every day. If anyone's gonna stop this phantom, it's gonna be me.

Chloe: So, Lex is tracking a wraith from the Phantom Zone, and Lionel Luthor is your new father figure? This is a lot of excitement for one day.
Clark: Yeah, there's more. Lana's leaving him.
Chloe: That's a happy headline, why didn't you say anything?
Clark: Chloe, I... told Lana my secret. She knows everything, she knows that I'm... an alien.

Guard: Looks like we got ourselves a wild one!
Lois: Wait until you see my claws.

Dr. Donovan Jamison: (after drawing the blood) Yes, well, it looks perfectly normal. Let's hope it isn't.
Lana: Hope isn't a word in my vocabulary, Doctor.

Wraith-Clark: Thanks for sharing. I feel a lot better now.
Clark: What just happened?
Wraith-Clark: I took a little piece of your DNA... and now I'm gonna take your life.

Lex: You're making a mistake!
Deputy: You're under arrest for the murder of Lana Luthor.

Clark: What the hell are you?
Wraith-Clark: I'm you, only a little more bizarre.

John: When you unleashed those phantoms, your life was at stake. I didn't have a choice.
Lionel: Like what happened at the docks in Seattle.
Clark: And when that phantom infected my mind.

The docks incident refers to Static and the phantom infecting Clark's mind was referring to Labyrinth.
