Episode Quotes
Lois: Luthorcorp recently purchased a hundred acres of land from the dam where Lex was building his toy soldiers.
Grant Gabriel: And I’m stifling my yawn because…?

Lex: In the comic book world, when you're destined to save mankind, you're destined to be alone.

Lex: I just read about your heroics in the paper. Who needs Warrior Angel when we've got our own Clark Kent?
Clark: Actually, that's why I'm here. I was wondering if you could help me with a reference. You're the biggest Warrior Angel fan I know.
Lex: Was a fan. I haven't picked up a comic since we were friends. Back when I saw life as black and white. When I realized good and evil was gray, the stories lost their magic. Though I have to admit, yours is the last nose I'd expect to find in a comic.

(to Clark)
Lex: In the comic book world, when you're destined to save mankind, you're destined to be alone.

Rachel: I’ve only seen love like that once in my life.
Lana: What happened?
Rachel: The director yelled “Cut.”

Lex: I never gave up on you.
Lionel: Lex, why did you do this?
Lex: But I see you’ve given up on me.

Lana: Lionel, I heard what happened. Are you okay?
Lionel: It's hardly reassuring to read your own obituary. But you should know that, I suppose, shouldn't you?
Lana: They said that you were being held captive by a crazy woman.
Lionel: (laughs) Indeed I was. You.
Lana: I would never be involved in something like that.
Lionel: Oh, please. That line stopped working for you the day you faked your own death.

Lana: Lionel, I heard what happened. Are you okay?
Lionel: It's hardly reassuring to read your own obituary. But you should know that, I suppose, shouldn't you?
Lana: They said that you were being held captive by a crazy woman.
Lionel: Indeed I was. You.
Lana: I would never be involved in something like that.
Lionel: Oh, please. That line stopped working for you the day you faked your own death.

(to Lana)
Lionel: You may have lost the Luthor name, but it’s the Luthor instincts that keep those claws of yours sharp.

Lana: Clark, I just want to grab on to you and never let you go... but one day the world will need you more than I do. And I don't want to be the one holding you here.
Clark: I'm not going anywhere. For the first time in my life, I have everything I've ever wanted... and it's right here on this farm with you.
