Lex Luthor: You were right about me all along, Mr. Kent. I am the villain of the story.
Lana Lang: You think you know someone, but there's this side of them that you never see. Until it's too late.
Clark Kent: Well, you've certainly seen me at my worst.
Lana Lang: And at your best.
Lex Luthor: It all makes sense now. That first day on the bridge when we met, how you were able to save me when my car went into the river. All of the other miraculous times you appeared in just the right place at just the right moment, almost as if you possessed powers and abilities beyond those of mortal men.
Clark Kent: Whatever you are, whatever you're planning, I'm going stop you.
Lex Luthor: No, you aren't. You're going to join me.
Clark Kent: What?
Lex Luthor: Think about it, Clark. My intellect, your powers. Together we could rule this world. We'll walk as gods among men.
Clark Kent: You're not a god. I'm not even sure you're human.
Lex Luthor: Are you?
Lex Luthor: Every man has a weakness, Clark, no matter how superhuman he may be. I've embraced my destiny. Now embrace yours. We could forge a new future together.
Clark Kent: I'll never join you.
Lex Luthor: Yes, you will. Or everyone you love will suffer.
Lex Luthor: I gotta hand it to you guys. I mean, keeping something like this a secret must've required an impressive ability to obscure the truth. Maybe the Kents and the Luthors have something in common after all.
Lex Luthor: I want you to remember this day, Clark. I want you to remember that despite all your amazing powers, there was one man that beat you. Maybe this was always our destiny. How sad.
Lex Luthor: You can't kill me. I'm what drives you. I'm what gives your life meaning. I'm your soul, you weak pathetic little man. I'm the real Lex Luthor!
Lex Luthor: Did the accident create an evil Lex or is that what's really inside of me?
Alexander Luthor: I know about the green meteor rock. And Clark's unique gifts.
Martha Kent: What do you want?
Alexander Luthor: The world, Mrs. Kent. And your son is gonna help me bring it to its knees. Now talk some sense into him before something unfortunate happens.
[he shoots Jonathan]
Alexander Luthor: Like that.
Chloe Sullivan: You're always there when I need you, Clark. I just hope someday I can do the same for you.
Martha Kent: Oh, my god, Clark, you're bleeding.
Alexander Luthor: I'm guessing that doesn't happen very often.
Lex Luthor: [Alexander is fighting Clark] Leave him alone!
Alexander Luthor: I'm really starting to hate the sound of my own voice.
Clark Kent: [in the ruins of the LexCorp lab] It's not much to look at, is it?
Lex Luthor: Broken dreams seldom are.
Lana Lang: What are you doing?
Alexander Luthor: What I've always wanted to.
[he kisses her; in disgust, she pushes him away and slaps him]
Alexander Luthor: Well, I do like them feisty.
Clark Kent: Where's Lex?
Lex Luthor: Right in front of you.
Clark Kent: No. You're not him. The real Lex would never try to kill me or Chloe.
Lex Luthor: Well... you're probably right, but he's thought about it!
