Quotes Edit

  • Chloe Sullivan: Clark Kent at the keyboard? Have I been downsized in the bureaucratic world of superheroes?


  • Lois Lane: God, do you take lessons in how to do that?
  • John Corben: Okay. Isn't the appropriate response "Thank God you're still alive. Too bad you're wearing clothes this time."?
  • Lois Lane: Yes, that's it. The first part.


  • Chloe Sullivan: I should have known that Clark took a walk down the ruby-red road. That's explains his lack of edit button.
  • Tess Mercer: I thought Clark was only affected by green meteor. What's the red do?
  • Chloe Sullivan: Basically it turns him to the bad boy every girl dreams of... in her nightmares.


  • Zod: Religion is science. Not some... mystical questioning of it.


  • Clark Kent: This is my lucky day to be saved.
  • John Corben: Kal-El... take it from someone who's been there. We don't always know when we need saving.


  • Lois Lane: By the way, this is the least-secret secret lab I've ever been in... twice.
