Quotes

Clark Kent: So what're you gonna do? Are you gonna go stay with Chloe?
Lois Lane: They've got a tiny one-bedroom apartment. I can't do that to them. It's fine, really, I'm just gonna check into a motel and when the money runs out, I can always sleep in my car. The backseat's not too bad if you bend your knees and avoid the drive train and then, you know, if I have to sell my car for food, that's okay too. I've always dreamed of being a hobo, riding the rails, cooking beans over roadside fires...

Showing Integrity
7 June 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

After a drinking competition, the winner Lois Lane hits a drunken abusive player of the Bulldog football team and later, the guy is found paralyzed and Lois is arrested for aggression. The Metropolis University offers a scholarship to Clark Kent to play football, and he is welcomed by the idol Geoff Johns (Chris Carmack). Seduced by the sorority girls and the reception of the other players, Clark takes a tough decision. Lex Luthor advises Lana Lang about the secrets of Jason Teague, including his encounter with her in Paris.

In "Recruit", Clark Kent shows a great integrity, sacrificing his love for football and building the character of a future national hero. I liked the proud reaction of Chloe Sullivan. The new mystery arisen by Lex Luthor about Jason and his mother Genevieve is very promising. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Novato" ("The Rookie")
