Superman's narration: Luck. That's what it all boils down to, doesn't it? The smallest break one way or the other. It can save a life or destroy one. And you can't fight it, no matter how strong you are.
Superman's narration: I suppose I could have flown to the Government and give 'em the disk, but that could have raised some awkward questions. Maybe there was some ego involved too. I wanted this to be Clark's victory, not Superman's.
Lois: Who else but the real killer would have done this? He was probably afraid Kent was getting too close!
Detective Bowman: Kent was a reporter. Who knows how many enemies he had! This might come as a kick in the pants, Lane, but nobody likes you guys!
(On the phone)
Martha Kent: Yes, Detective Bowman, I heard you. My son's car blew up and went into the ocean.
Detective Bowman: But are you sure you... understand? I mean, this is serious...
Martha Kent: I know. I-I guess the shock just hasn't set in yet. If you hear anything else, give us a jingle. Bye now.
Martha Kent: Well, this is a fine mess.
Jonathan Kent: It's not like he's really dead, Martha, he just can't be Clark anymore.
Superman: But I am Clark. I need to be Clark. I'd go crazy if I got to be Superman all the time!!
Lois: (about Clark) I always teased him. But I had so much respect. (shedding tears) And I liked him too, I really did. I wish I'd told him.
Lois: I don't believe it! You've been sitting here in the lap of luxury while I'm out risking my neck!
Lana Lang: He was recuperating. Poor thing, when I picked him up he could barely remember his own name.
Lois: But he sure remembered yours, and you telephone number.
Lana Lang: Clark and I go back a long way. Are you... jealous?
Lois: Yeah, jealous of his endless luck.
Clark is really gullible if he thinks the computer disk would prove Walker’s innocence – it simply proves he ordered for a pizza at that time; it doesn’t prove he was home to get it. Unless he had signed something, Walker could perfectly have committed the crime. The disk can raise reasonable doubt, at best.
