Quotes Edit

  • Chloe Sullivan: Lois stopped by and found Shelby here alone with a dishful of food. Now, don't worry, I covered for you. But you should know that you are *now* on her radar.
  • Clark Kent: Thanks. I'll be more careful next time.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Dressed like that? Clark, what if I was Lois? She would take one look at you and realize Clark Kent *is* the Blur.
  • Clark Kent: I told you, there *is* no Clark Kent.
  • Chloe Sullivan: No disrespect to your Kryptonian calling, but coming back to feed the dog is about as human as it gets.


  • Chloe Sullivan: Are you still reaching out to Lois as The Blur?
  • Clark Kent: She told you?
  • Chloe Sullivan: You're supposed to be training with Jor-El. Does he know you're still talking to her?
  • Clark Kent: Jor-El doesn't need to know.
  • Chloe Sullivan: So you're lying to *him*. You said you're turning your back on all your human attachments, Clark, but apparently, only when it *suits* you.
  • Clark Kent: You're taking this all too personally, Chloe. And I understand that you're still angry about Jimmy.
  • Chloe Sullivan: We both sacrificed a lot so that you can become the hero that you're meant to be. Now quit backpedaling, Clark. Commit to what you started before more people get hurt.


  • Lois Lane: You know, when I asked you if we could table our talk about you-know-who, I meant until I got home.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Actually, the only table I'm here about is the kind they serve lunch on. I was thinking we could celebrate you getting your job back.
  • Lois Lane: I would love to. But I'm kind of already on the job. I'm working for you-know-who.
  • Chloe Sullivan: The Blur?
  • Lois Lane: Mm-hmm.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Doing what, exactly?
  • Lois Lane: Hunting down a real life terminator.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Lois, that sounds dangerous. Why is he not doing that himself?
  • Lois Lane: Oh... Sometimes, heroes can't do it all their own, Chloe. That's why they need sidekicks. Rain check on lunch.


  • Clark Kent: I took the easy way out, Chloe. I should have been there when you needed me. I'm sorry.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Clark, there's nothing easy about burying everyone you love in your past.
  • Clark Kent: I'm afraid I haven't even done a very good job of that. I'm trying to fill the void by hanging out on rooftops, eavesdropping on people - people who are connecting and living. Thinking, what's the point of protecting life if you've lost your sense on how to live it? Maybe I can't do this, Chloe. Maybe I can't completely stay away.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Stay away from *her*, you mean. Lois means something to you - something more. So, does this mean that Clark Kent is coming back for an encore?
  • Clark Kent: I don't know. But I can't let that life interfere with my training again.
  • Chloe Sullivan: Clark, lurking around building edges at midnight, pining after the life you gave up isn't exactly amping your hero performance, either. You know... maybe I was naive to think that you could just turn the corner and never look back. But either way, Kal-El needs his human disguise more than ever.
