Lois Lane: [Barging into Perry White's office] Chief! I spent a week on the docks with rats and frizzed hair exposing the biggest gun-smuggling ring to hit this town in ten years and what makes the front page? Some sprouty, new age, granola-crunching fluff piece on angels! What's next? Interviews with Bigfoot?
Perry White: Good timing, Lois. I wanted you to be the first to know, I'm hiring a new guy on the city desk.
Lois Lane: Is he cute?
Perry White: Uh... you tell me.
[Lois spins around and sees Clark standing there]
Lois Lane: Oh... hi.
[Lois finds Clark ahead of her at the Lexcorp press conference]
Lois Lane: How'd you get here before me?
Clark Kent: Well, I just flew.
Lois Lane: What'd you get?
Clark Kent: [puts away his notebook] A shared byline, if you use it.
Lois Lane: I take it back. You're not the rube hayseed I took you for.
Clark Kent: Thanks... I think.
Jonathan Kent: Put that thing back, you don't know where it came from.
Martha Kent: He's not a thing, Jonathan, he's a baby! A little baby. Who'd put a baby in a spaceship.
Jonathan Kent: That's just my point. It could be Russian, a Sputnik maybe.
Martha Kent: Oh, really.
Jonathan Kent: Maybe he's one of ours. You think NASA is missing a kid?
Martha Kent: I don't care where he came from. All I know is, he needs us, Jonathan.
