Mr. Summers takes his geology class out to the dam to pick up rocks, and warns that a storm is coming and he wants to head back as soon as possible. Among the classmates are Clark, Chloe, and Pete. Clark uses his x-ray vision to look for the rocks on their assignment when Pete’s back is turned, plunging his hand into the ground. As they talk, Clark wavers as Lana comes over with her necklace on. Her lab partner Chloe comes over and complains about the stupid assignment...Read the full recap
Chloe: I'm sorry, but I find geology even more pointless than algebra. I mean, I could just order these rocks online and have them delivered to my house vacuum-sealed.
Roger Nixon: This could make one hell of a story.
Lex: Nobody's ever going know about this. And if this story is accidentally leaked, you and I are going to have a serious trust issue.
Roger Nixon: As opposed to the close personal relationship we enjoy now.
Pete: He's been acting weird lately.
Chloe: Well, okay, Clark's always acting weird. Why don't you give me a gauge?
Jonathan: How are you holding up?
Clark: Considering my chores used to take me five minutes and now they take two hours, I'm all right.
Jonathan: You know what they say: lightning never strikes twice in the same place. Look, my guess is that your powers aren't coming back.
Clark: Maybe being normal won't be so bad. I mean, it works for you and Mom.
Martha: Oh, thanks.
Clark: You don't feel any differently about me now, do you?
Martha: Clark, you're our son whether you can bench-press the tractor or not.
Clark: I hope all this attention doesn't go to his head. He needs to be careful.
Chloe: Well, you know what, Clark, the second you start throwing people thirty feet, I'll write nice things about you, too.
Pete: Why are you grinning? We lost.
Clark: I know. Pretty cool, huh?
Lex: Listen, I had no right to question your honesty. All I can do is plead temporary insanity and hope we could find a way to put this behind us.
Clark: Only temporary?
Eric: Come on, Clark. If you had the power to do whatever you want, what would you do?
Clark: I'd stop people like you.
