"Smallville: Rosetta (#2.17)" (2003)
Clark Kent: [reading Kryptonian] "We will be with you, Kal-El, for all the days of your life." What does this mean?
Dr. Virgil Swann: I'm not sure, but one thing I've learned about science is the value of patience.
[Clark notices a picture of outer space on the wall with an area circled]
Clark Kent: Is that where Krypton is?
Dr. Virgil Swann: No, that's where Krypton was. I followed the signal's path billions of miles out into space. I was hoping to discover its origin but instead, I found nothing.
Clark Kent: Planets just don't disappear. What do you think happened to it?
Dr. Virgil Swann: Oh, it could be any one of a million different scenarios. War, famine, disease. I mean, look at the world around us. Is it really that hard to believe?
Clark Kent: Well, I can't be the only one. There must be others like me.
Dr. Virgil Swann: There was only one message.
Clark Kent: Why me? There must be a reason why I was sent to this planet.
Dr. Virgil Swann: You won't find the answers by looking to the stars. It's a journey you'll have to take by looking inside yourself. You must write your own destiny... Kal-El.

Dr. Virgil Swann: Hello, Clark. I've been expecting you.
