The song "Everything" by Lifehouse used in this episode was also used at the end of the pilot episode. In the pilot, the song played over a scene in Clark's barn following a missed dance at the high school. In this episode it was played twice, the first time the dance at high school reunion is shown, and the second time at the end of the high school reunion, which Clark missed. It is also played at the end of the first season for Whitney and Lana. See more »

Clark Kent: [at Jonathan's grave] You were right, dad. I never stopped blaming myself for what happened to you. It was a way not to have to let go. That's exactly what I have to do to move on. To get rid of the darkness of my past I've been carrying around. To be there for the people who need me now. You said to hold on to Smallville. And I will. I won't ever forget. Because you'll be with me no matter where I go. But I have to say the one thing I never could.
