Lana: How tasteless is this? I think they even used real meteor rocks.
Chloe: The American version of closure. You can only get over your grief when you figure out how to merchandise your tragedy.
Clark Kent: Seth doesn't have a brother who works in Granville. Lana was trying to throw me off his trail. She lied to me. Right to my face, and I believed her.
Martha Kent: Oh, she's clearly not herself, Clark.
Clark Kent: I know. I'm not angry. It's just I realized that that's what I've been doing to her all this time.
Martha Kent: Your feelings for Lana are not a lie.
Clark Kent: You think I made the right decision pushing her away?
Martha Kent: I don't know.
Clark Kent: I miss the days when your answers were "yes" and "no".
Martha Kent: Me, too.
Lex Luthor: Any word on your friend Seth?
Lana: He's still in a coma. Uh, they don't know what he'll remember, if and when he ever wakes up. Lex, I'm sorry I let you down. I can't defend my behavior, magnetism or no magnetism. But I'd really like my job at the Talon back.
Lex Luthor: Done.
[Lana is incredulous]
Lex Luthor: I'm serious. The place needs you, and I make a lousy latte.
Lana: [unsure what to say] Lex...
Lex Luthor: Lana, I did a lot worse things than steal a sports car when I was your age, and I'm the last guy to criticize someone for falling for the wrong person. But I'm sure the right guy is out there.
Lana: Even though my compass was way off with Seth, he still had the courage to be honest with me.
Clark Kent: Then he used his abilities to manipulate you.
Lana: I am not condoning what he did. Believe me, I'm paying for it. It still felt good, caring for someone and... and having my feelings returned. I want that again.
Clark Kent: I don't expect you to wait forever for me.
Lana: Good. Because one of these days, someone's gonna come along that's right for me, and I'm going to want to be with that person. And you're gonna have to deal with that.
Chloe: You're a Luthor, so it's a given that you're unscrupulous, but I really thought that petty larceny was beneath you, Lex.
Lex Luthor: Can you be a little more specific with the charge?
Chloe: I caught some creep in my office trying to steal one of my computers. I figured either you or your father hired him.
Lex Luthor: But you're accusing me.
Chloe: You're what they euphemistically call the lesser of two evils.
Lex Luthor: I admire your take charge attitude. Barging in here and accusing me took guts. Or sheer stupidity.
Chloe: How did he die?
Lex Luthor: Natural causes. Apparently his heart just gave out.
Chloe: And you believe that?
Lex Luthor: Given what he was looking into, I doubt there was anything natural about his death.
Chloe: How do I know you're not just playing me, Lex?
Lex Luthor: You're right, Chloe. I could be. I often bring high school girls to the morgue to show them what happens when trained professionals cross my father.
Chloe: Well, there's nothing in my files worth killing over.
Lex Luthor: We've got a corpse here that says you're wrong. Chloe, you're involved in a very dangerous game. I can protect you.
Chloe: [scoffs] Yeah, like you protected him?
Lex Luthor: Mason knew the risks of tangling with my father. You clearly don't. I'm the only choice you've got.
Jonathan Kent: [Clark shuts the refrigerator door] Whoop, something must be wrong if he stuck his head in the refrigerator and didn't eat the last piece of cherry pie.
Clark Kent: It's nothing. It's just Lana. Seth Nelson asked her out.
Martha Kent: What'd she say?
Clark Kent: She said "yes" so fast, it gave me whiplash.
