[On saving Lana from a raging tornado]
Clark: Dad, I've survived a lot. But being inside that twister... I've never been so scared in my life. I couldn't see anything, and things were bouncing off me, I didn't have any control. And I know it could have been the wind, but all of a sudden I was moving toward the truck and it felt like I was willing myself to do it. I felt like I was flying.
Pete Ross: Hey.
Chloe Sullivan: Hey.
[in tears, after telling Clark they should be friends]
Pete Ross: What's with the fake smile?
Chloe Sullivan: Nothing. Clark and I just reaffirmed that we're really good friends. And nothing else.
Pete Ross: Pulled the "friends" card on you, huh?
Chloe Sullivan: No, I did. Defense mechanism.
Roger Nixon: Like I said, the people have a right to know. And unlike you, Mr. Kent, I am willing to kill for what I believe in.
Roger Nixon: Why don't you stop playing the protector and admit the truth? You and your wife kept him because you couldn't have children of your own.
Jonathan Kent: We kept him because he is our son and we love him.
Roger Nixon: [laughs] He's not your son, you deluded hick. He's not even human.
Roger Nixon: He can see through solid objects? Unbelievable. What else can he do? Do you have any idea what I would do with his abilities? The wealth, the power he could amass. It's unimaginable.
Jonathan Kent: You are exactly the reason why I keep his abilities a secret.
