Chloe Sullivan: You know, I gotta say, being at the mercy of modern technology really sucks. I know, I know. I'm happy to be Brainiac-free. But my evil upgrade was really... convenient.
Clark Kent: Whoever that is, he can't just operate on Jones.
Oliver Queen: Why? 'Cause he's Martian? I get it, Clark. It's fine. He's in good hands with Emil. Trust me. After I got poisoned, I figured, you know, guys like us, could probably use a specialist on payroll.
Clark Kent: Since when did Jones become one of us?
Oliver Queen: Well, he's gotten me out of a few tight scrapes with the police, Clark.
Clark Kent: He wanted to meet with me after his shift to talk about something - I don't know what it was. If he hadn't sacrificed his abilities to save my life, that bullet wouldn't have left a scratch.
Oliver Queen: And now you feel guilty, and that's your thing, I get it - that's great. But standing here doing nothing isn't going to solve anything.
Dan Turpin: Meanwhile, we got these costumed idiots running around, getting in our way, taking all the credit. The Green Arrow, Red-Blue Blur?
Clark Kent: The Great Pumpkin.
Dan Turpin: [chuckles] Yeah.
Clark Kent: You think they do more harm than good?
Dan Turpin: What I know is that cops got rules, capes don't.
Officer Joe Simmons: [shoots Clark, bullet doesn't hurt him] How did...?
Clark Kent: It's like you said... always wear a vest.
Tess Mercer: When I thought my life was over, you gave me a reason to keep going. I wouldn't be who I am without you. I trusted you. Because I respected you. I've done everything you've ever asked. You've seen that with your own eyes and, apparently, with mine. But not anymore. I hope you watch with rapt attention as your bank accounts close, as you lose all contact with the outside world, as your life disappears before your eyes. Goodbye, Lex. I loved you, you son of a bitch.
Lana Lang: We aren't 14 anymore. The world will always be bigger than us.
Clark Kent: Maybe it doesn't have to be all or nothing. For the last year all I've done is sacrifice myself and everything that I loved for the greater good. What if the rest of the world didn't have to come first?
Lana Lang: The world needs you, Clark.
Clark Kent: What about what we need?
