Sometimes movie criminals go to great lengths to complicate their lives. The method of using a ventriloquist to send messages to prospective hijackers, seems a bit of a hard way to do somethings simple. As the Planet group celebrate Jimmy's birthday by seeing a lame guy with his equally lame dummy act, voices overlay the voice of the ventriloquist, seeming non-sequiters. When an armored car is hijacked, the reporters realize it's at a location that was indicated by the random statements from the audience. The boss of the armored car company is making a big stink to Inspector Henderson (his first appearance in the show) about police incompetence. Jimmy, who has been free-lancing (that idiot Olsen) and finds himself in a safe being lowered from a twenty story window. Lois and Clark come to the scene and Clark shouts out, "Jimmy's in that safe." Clark takes off and you- know-who appears and catches the safe. When the question is asked why Clark frequently disappears before Superman appears, someone says, "Maybe he takes his glasses off, changes his clothes, and becomes Superman." A little humor there. This is a very ordinary episode but typical of what is to come.
