Martha Kent: Clark, what really happened down there?
Clark Kent: When Lex pulled me out of that rubble, I saw a glimpse of something I hadn't seen in years. My friend.
Lex Luthor: You were the last person I ever expected to be pulling shrapnel out of. I saw what happened when I stabbed you with that chisel, Clark. The thing accordioned like it hit solid rock. I don't know why I needed to believe that you were more than human.
Clark Kent: Nothing's ever good enough for you, Lex.
Lex Luthor: Yeah, well, the truth would have been. You may be flesh and blood... but you've been hiding secrets from me since we met. You never trusted me.
Clark Kent: Would it have mattered? What are you really doing down here anyway, Lex? Trying to find ways to exploit the people that have different abilities than you?
Lex Luthor: There is no gray area with you, is there? It's either all good or all evil. Did you ever try to see my humanity before you decided I had none?
Clark Kent: I did, Lex. And look where we are.
Chloe Sullivan: [on voice mail] Hey, Clark, it's me again. Where are you? I feel like your stalker ex-girlfriend, even though I was never your girlfriend. It was just an analogy - a bad one.
Clark Kent: I saw Lana the day of the wedding and she was gonna leave you. What did you do her?
Lex Luthor: I don't know. The answer must have gotten lost in that dark abyss we call my soul.
Clark Kent: We're we ever really friends, Lex?
Lex Luthor: I don't know. I have nothing to compare it to. You're the only real friend I've ever had, Clark. And somewhere along the way, you saw me as your nemesis, turned your back on me.
Clark Kent: Chloe, I've x-rayed these tunnels over a dozen times, and they all just seem to lead to Reeves Dam.
Chloe Sullivan: Maybe so, but if Lex is willing to go up against Tomb Raider for them, I can't retire my reporter's notebook just yet.
