Chloe Sullivan: So Hell freezes over and no one even bothers to tell me?
Clark Kent: Chloe, listen, Mr. Luthor has been writing these. It's some sort of warning, but I can't decipher it.
Chloe Sullivan: Well, unfortunately, my Kryptonian's a little rusty. What about -
Lionel Luthor: I don't know what any of this means, Miss Sullivan. I am simply the Oracle. I believe the answers could be found with a visit to your Fortress.
Clark Kent: The last time someone talked me into taking him to the Fortress, was a trick. To release General Zod.
Chloe Sullivan: Yeah, I have plans this weekend, so if we could protect Smallville from the wrath of Krypton's deadliest villain, that would be great.
Professor Milton Fine: Impressive. Looks like I underestimated your willingness to tackle a nonprofit venture.
Lex Luthor: Well, Luthercorp doesn't take the threat of an alien armageddon lightly. You were never gonna create a vaccine for humans, were you?
Professor Milton Fine: Is that what you think?
Lex Luthor: It was gonna be your way of of protecting your extraterrestrial guests when they arrive and unleash some horrible disease on us.
Professor Milton Fine: So you went behind my back and mass-produced the vaccine for mankind.
Lex Luthor: I wanted to give my people a fighting chance before you got your dirty hands on them.
Professor Milton Fine: I applaud your noble efforts to protect your species. I never intended to mass produce the vaccine. Unfortunately, it's all based on faulty assumptions. One dose is all I ever need.
[he grabs Lex by his arm and injects him with the vaccine]
Professor Milton Fine: Let the rest of the world find its own cure.
Chloe Sullivan: I came by for your Kryptonian dictionary. I ran Lionel's symbols in that program, and it came up with this pattern - 3 signs repeated 32 times.
[shows Clark the pattern and he reads it]
Chloe Sullivan: What does it say?
Clark Kent: "Zod is coming."
Jonathan Kent: How long have you had feelings for Lionel Luthor?
Martha Kent: It's not like that.
Jonathan Kent: I want you to be happy, sweetheart. I've always just... just wanted you to be happy. Not with him.
Martha Kent: Jonathan... you know you're the only I've ever loved. It's been... so hard without you. Your voice, your touch. I miss you so much.
Jonathan Kent: I miss you, too, sweetheart.
Martha Kent: Why did you have to leave me?
Jonathan Kent: I'm sorry, Martha, I didn't have any choice. And soon, neither will a lot of other innocent people.
Martha Kent: Are... are you talking about Lionel? What is it? What is he doing?
Jonathan Kent: He's going to drown you all in your own blood, just like he did me.
Martha Kent: Like he did you? What...
Jonathan Kent: Martha, I'm sorry, but you've got to tell Clark there is no other choice. Lionel Luthor has to die.
Martha Kent: Jonathan...
Jonathan Kent: He has to.
Lex Luthor: Lana called me. I don't want to hear you were rifling through her stuff like a crazy roommate again. If you want something from me, don't go running to Lana to find it. You really crossed the line.
Clark Kent: All those years we were friends, were you just waiting for me to step aside so you could swoop in and make your move?
Lex Luthor: I don't know, Clark. All those years you told Lana you loved her, were you just waiting to walk away and break her heart? Look, there's a natural tendency to blame the person who's replaced you; I get that. But I didn't take Lana from you. You lost her all by yourself.
Clark Kent: Mom, this isn't the first time I've seen dad. It's a long story, but Lana was in trouble. I tried to save her and had some sort of near-death experience. I saw dad; he was the one who told me Lionel knew my secret. That wasn't my imagination. What if this wasn't, either?
Martha Kent: If that's true... if it really was your father...
Clark Kent: Then what Lionel's up to is a lot worse than just knowing my secret.
Martha Kent: It would have to be for your father to suggest taking someone's life.
Clark Kent: Dad?
Jonathan Kent: Listen, I'm sorry I couldn't be at your birthday party to see the kind of man you're becoming.
Clark Kent: Dad, everything I am is because of you.
Jonathan Kent: Not everything. See, there can be no more lessons; you're gonna have to do this on your own. I can't help anymore. You're gonna have to stop him.
Clark Kent: Stop who?
Jonathan Kent: He's much worse than we possibly imagined. So many people, so... many people are gonna die.
Clark Kent: I don't understand, dad. What are you talking about?
Jonathan Kent: I'm talking about Lionel Luthor.
Clark Kent: What is he doing?
Jonathan Kent: He's gonna do something terrible.
Clark Kent: Tell me, dad. What am I supposed to do?
Jonathan Kent: I'm sorry, Clark, but to save this world... you've got to kill Lionel Luthor. Goodbye, son.
Lana Lang: I'm sorry if things got awkward. I was really hoping that Clark wouldn't end up in all this. I just... don't want to hurt him.
Lex Luthor: I don't, either. I care about him, too. But then I have to remind myself that Clark's specialty is barging in where he's not invited, and then somehow making you feel like you're the one who should apologize.
Lana Lang: Okay, um... I have a great idea. How about a moratorium on the Clark topic?
Lex Luthor: Twist my arm.
Lana Lang: Don't tempt me.
Lionel Luthor: You're involved with Milton Fine. I know that he's been smuggling some of the deadliest viruses in the world into this country with your help.
Lex Luthor: Well, don't worry, Dad. I'm not gonna put them in any Halloween candy.
Professor Milton Fine: Some say the toast came about by a man who feared that his drink had been poisoned. But he was a quick-witted man. He joyfully clanked his mug with the mugs of his mates, sloshing his lethal beverage into everyone's drink with cheer. A simple tap, then, must be a sign of trust.
[Lex declines to drink Fine gives him]
Lex Luthor: I'm not really thirsty.
Lex Luthor: I'm hoping this will help me get a few answers.
[Lex pulls out a kryptonite rock on Fine and it has no effect on him]
Professor Milton Fine: Close... but I'm not one of them. I was only made by them.
Lois Lane: Look, sometimes you gotta tuck your feelings away until it's the right time. Like stuffing dollars into a piggy bank for a bike you can't quite afford.
Clark Kent: Except I can't quite imagine there is anyone is out there.
Lois Lane: Oh, you never know, Clark. Even if you finally crack open that piggy bank, you found all this time you haven't been saving for a bike. You been really saving it for a Harley.
Clark Kent: There are times when think you don't know me at all... and others where I think you know me better than anyone.
Lois Lane: That's what I'm here for, Smallville - one save at a time.
