Quotes

Lana Lang: We've spent the last week avoiding what happened.
Lex Luthor: I was kind of waiting for you to bring that up.
Lana Lang: You kissed me.
Lex Luthor: And then you kissed me back.
Lana Lang: God, after all that talk about friendship and not wanting to ruin what we have, we really don't listen very well, do we?
Lex Luthor: Are you asking me to forget what happened? Because short of a serious blow to the head, I think it's a memory that's gonna linger for quite a while.

Best episode in months. . .

*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

In my opinion, this has been the best episode of Smallville in quite a while. First, it had an exciting, suspenseful plot line. Second, Lana Lang was only in one scene. She always makes me feel like I'm watching All My Children. And best of all, there were no meteor rocks in sight. And for once, Clark actually did something Superman-like. Albeit, I was a bit perplexed as to why Clark couldn't hear his mother screaming for help. And on a similar note, if Clark can run half as fast as Superman can fly, then he could have scoured the entire planet, finding Lionel and Martha within seconds, as opposed to waiting for Chloe to trace the signal to a building 5 miles away, and then driving there in Lex's car. And I must admit, I was somewhat disappointed when they revealed that the guy in the mask was just some disgruntled factory worker. But all in all, I give it a 9 out of 10.
