The CW's Official Description:
THE STEPFORD BOYFRIENDS COME TO SMALLVILLE - Clark (Tom Welling)
joins the football team at school and is immediately given the starting
quarterback position after the old quarterback starts a fight with new
coach Jason (Jensen Ackles). Curious about the behavior change in his
old teammate, Clark and Lois (Erica Durance) investigate and discover
that the cheerleaders are poisoning the teams' water with kryptonite,
turning the players into Stepford-like boyfriends.
Kristin Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Allison Mack, John Glover, Annette
O'Toole and John Schneider also star. David Carlson directed the episode
written by Luke Schelhaas.
Football Practice at Smallville High. Clark sits on
the bench as he watches the team practice. The cheerleaders cheer them
on from the sidelines. One cheerleader in particular, Mandy, cheers on
her boyfriend, the quarterback Dan Cormier. Jason walks up to Clark on
the bench and asks how he is holding up. Clark tells him, “Just enjoying
the view…from the bench.” Jason explains that he wants to use him but
Coach Quigley thinks he already has his starting line up but that Clark
should just hang in there. The players stop for a quick break and Mandy
runs over to Dan and tries to give him attention which he tells her to
stop. She asks what they are doing on Saturday and he tells her that
they aren’t doing anything because he is hanging out with his friends.
She hands him a sports bottle filled with a green liquid. Glancing over
at the other cheerleaders, who are also holding bottles of the green
liquid, they smile and nod at her. Dan takes a drink and the substance
has an uncanny effect on him: his whole attitude changes. He kisses
Mandy and tells her he would rather hang out with her on Saturday. She
suggests that they go shopping now. He agrees and heads for the shower.
Jason stops him and asks where he is going. Dan tells him that he is
going shopping with Mandy. At this point, Mandy walks by and Jason
notices her. Dan angrily asks, “You checking out my girlfriend, buddy?”
Jason doesn’t know that he is talking about. Dan heads off the field and
Jason tells him that if he leaves he won’t be playing on Friday. Dan
leaves and so Jason tells Clark that a spot just opened up. Clark gladly
takes the field. The other players, friends of Dan, give Clark a hard
time. Clark calls the play and throws a long pass to the receiver at the
other end of the field. Jason and Clark are pleased with the play.
After practice in the locker room, Jason is just
finished getting dressed. Sitting tying his shoes, he hears something.
As he turns around to look, he sees the barrel of a shot gun. He jumps
out of his seat just as gun shot barrels through his empty spot. Jason
gets to his feet and runs down through the lockers. The next shot misses
again tearing through the lockers. Jason continues to run for the door
only to find it locked. The assailant, Dan, faces Jason and takes
another shot before Jason can say anything. Dan shoots again and hits
the bathroom mirror which shatters around Jason. Getting up from the
floor with his hands out, Jason tries to reason with Dan. At this point,
Clark comes into the locker room and sees the scene. Dan is telling
Jason, “It's too late, coach. You shouldn't have hit on my girl.” Dan
shoots the gun again. The buck shot flies toward Jason in slow motion
and Clark runs toward Jason knocking him clear of the shot. Then from
the ground, Clark uses his heat vision to heat up the rifle in Dan’s
hands, causing him to drop it. Dan then falls to the ground unconscious.
Jason is now in Lana’s apartment with his shirt off as she disinfects
his cuts from the mirror that he received while dodging Dan’s shots. He
tries to makes jokes about it. He comments on how fast Clark was to
tackle him out of the way. He continues to make jokes about the whole
episode and Lana tells him that this isn’t funny. She tries to explain
how hard this is for her. She heard about his being shot at by Chloe but
she couldn’t show any of the emotion she was feeling because why should
she feel so much for a coach she doesn’t really know. Jason says that
this is when he would get her bouquets of flowers and take her to fancy
restaurants but he can’t now that his father has cut him off because he
didn’t go to business school. But then he tells her that he needs this
job. It is something he loves, it works with his college schedule, and
he is near her. “I know the only downside is that we have to fly under
the radar, but... I'm sorry for that.” She moves toward him and gives
him a kiss. Then she tells him that she has never been happier but not
being able to share that has been frustrating. “Well, you know you can
always take your frustration out on me,” he replies. Lana smiles at this
and they begin to kiss again.
In the halls of Smallville High, Lois is again on the phone with Met
U Admissions. She is trying to talk with the Dean. She walks by Clark
who is standing at his locker. Overhearing her conversation, he follows
her and says, “You know...if you spent as much time studying as you did
trying to leave, you'd be in college already.” “And where'd you get that
pearl of wisdom, the Farmer's Almanac?” she counters. He then tries to
proudly show off his new letterman’s jacket. She tells him that they
aren’t exactly his colors. He tells her that they are the school’s
colors. “I'm glad you made the team, Clark, but why be a conformist? At
least with the whole farm boy plaid thing, as lame as it is, it
completely belongs to you.” Annoyed this time, Clark says, “In the
future, let's restrict our conversations to hello and goodbye.” They
both then observe the cheerleaders with their football player
boyfriends. Lois and Clark both seem baffled because the boys are doing
whatever the girls want: carry their pom-poms, backpacks, books, hold a
mirror so they can apply lipstick, excited about the girl’s pool party.
Lois and Clark arrive at the Torch to find Chloe working. Lois asks
Chloe if she has noticed the odd behavior of the football players.
Without looking up Chloe says, “Yeah, and I noticed one of them unloaded
a shotgun in the boys' locker room. I was thinking about maybe doing an
article on it, but the only two reporters I have are late again.” They
both give excuses. Chloe wants Lois to go to Smallville Medical to
interview Dan who has second degree burns on his hands. Then Lois’s
phone rings and it is the office of the Dean of Admissions at Met U. She
heads off to take her phone call. Chloe decides to go to Smallville
Medical herself and she wants Clark to talk to Coach Jason Teague about
the incident. Clark tells Chloe that with football he may not have all
that much time to work at the Torch right now. Chloe is a bit hurt and
disappointed but just decides that she has her work cut out for her.
When Clark tries to apologize, she tells him not to worry about it and
that she realizes what a big deal this is for him. Clark confides in her
that his team mates have not been too accepting of him. Chloe less than
sympathetic says, “They've been playing together for three years. You're
on the team for two weeks, and all of a sudden you're starting. What did
you expect, hugs and kisses?”
In the boy’s locker room, the players are excitedly opening boxes and
pulling out new jerseys and helmets. Clark walks in and asks what’s
going on. One of the players hands him a jersey with Kent on the back.
The boy says, “You owe me one Clark; I saved it from the toilet.”
Another player walks by and gives Clark a nasty stare. Jason walks into
the room and introduces the benefactor that supplied their new jerseys
and equipment, Lex Luthor. They all clap as Lex dressed in suit and tie
walks in. He addresses the team, “The coaches tell me this is going to
be a rebuilding season. And I want to encourage you to keep at it.”
Looking at Clark, Lex continues, “In my life, I've learned that you can
never give up on something that means a lot to you, even when you're
coming off a losing season. You keep trying because sometimes you just
need a fresh start.” Jason and the rest of the team applaud and Lex
starts to leave. He passes Clark who turns around and says, “I know what
you're doing. But you can't buy back my friendship.” Lex says nothing
and walks away.
At football practice, Chloe tries to catch up with Jason to interview
him about the shoot out. Jason tells her he’ll do it later. The
cheerleaders including Mandy bring out a large cooler of their green
concoction. Jason walks up to them to get a drink. Mandy says she hopes
he has someone special in his life. He tells her that isn’t any of her
business and then he takes the drink. His demeanor changes and he says,
“But yeah, I do have somebody.” Chloe then tries to talk to Clark about
the story as he comes by during practice. He tells her that it isn’t a
good time. She feels flustered. Then she takes a drink from the cooler.
She smiles largely as she looks out at the field and then says softly,
Lois is in the Torch when a perky Chloe comes in. Chloe tells Lois
that she is going to have to run with the story alone because she is
quitting the Torch. Chloe tells her that it never worked between her and
Clark because she was never there for him; she was too busy with the
Torch. “I wasn’t devoted to him.” Lois tells her that she can’t quit
because she, Lois, needs the credit. She also warns her that Clark is
just going to hurt her again. Chloe is angry with Lois that she is
getting in the way of her happiness and so Lois decides to take on the
The cheerleaders are in the hallway discussing the issue of Mandy’s
need for a new boyfriend. They think she should pick up Clark Kent
because he is the new quarterback. Lois is listening to their
conversation. When they see her, she walks over to them. She questions
Mandy about Dan. Mandy isn’t forthcoming. Then one of the other
cheerleaders drops a folder that Lois picks up. She opens the cover and
sees that the report is entitled, “The Love Molecule.” It has to do with
a molecule called phenylethylamine. Mandy takes the report and insults
Lois as she walks away.
Clark arrives home and goes to his loft in the barn to find Chloe
there wearing only his football game jersey. He is surprised to see her
dressed as she is and acting so funny. She pats the couch as an
invitation for him to sit by her. He nervously takes a seat on the couch
as far away from her as he can. She tells him that her priorities have
changed and that she no longer needs the Torch especially if he is not
going to be there. She moves closer to him. He questions why she is
wearing his jersey. She says, “I want to make you my number one
priority.” She moves even closer to him. “I would do anything for you.
Things that Lana would never do. Things to help relieve your stress.”
She touches his chest and then Clark leans his body in the opposite
direction as he tentatively asks her “Like what?” She begins to move her
hand down his body and he yells, “Chloe.” Then he removes her hand and
pats it asking her, “Are you ok.” She tells him she has never been
better. Then she sits on his lap, facing him. “I’m devoted to you. I
love you, Clark.” And then she kisses him. Clark isn’t sure what to do
by the look in his eyes and other body language.
The next morning, Clark comes down from his room into the kitchen.
His mother has been packing his football gear for school. She tells him
that she can’t find his jersey. He tells her that he forgot it up in the
barn. Clark tells his mother about Chloe acting strangely and how she
came on to him last night but that nothing happened. His mother thought
that they had agreed to be friends. Clark says that they did. His mother
thinks that maybe Chloe decided that life was too short to bury her
feelings and Clark in turn tells her that he is still not over Lana and
that he doesn’t think he ever will be. Martha tells him that he needs to
be honest with Chloe and tell her his true feelings. Then Jonathan Kent
arrives into the house after working outside. Martha is reminded that
she needs to get to the Talon. Jonathan asks Clark how football practice
is going and Clark tells him that it isn’t going so well because most of
the guys have been giving him a hard time. Jonathan shares a story that
he had the same kind of problem when he became the starting quarterback
as a sophomore. He had to earn their respect.
At the high school, Lana is walking through the empty halls with a
note in her hand. She finds Jason and asks if everything is ok. He tells
her that it is now and then kisses her. She asks what he is doing and he
says, “It's called kissing my girlfriend.” “No,” Lana says, “I was
talking more in the big picture sense.” She shows him the note in her
hand. “The lady from the attendance office announced to my entire
advanced lit class that Coach Teague needed to see me.” She tells him
that he is acting strange. She doesn’t want to cost him his job. He says
that he wants to make her happy. She wants to discuss this later. He
agrees but wants her to come to practice so he can see her. She smiles
touched by his sentiment.
At practice later that day, Clark sees Lana and goes over to see her.
She tells him that she came out to see him practice. He tells her that
it means a lot to him. Jason sees them and tells Clark to hurry up. When
Lana questions whether the new coach has been working him hard, Clark
reveals that he thinks the coach is pretty cool. Lana looks proud. Clark
turns away and Lois runs into him questioning what he did to her cousin.
Clark tells her that Chloe was hitting on him. Lois thinks he had to do
something to make her think he was interested. Then Chloe runs onto the
field dressed in a cheerleader uniform. She tells them that the best way
to show her support of Clark was to join the cheerleading squad. Lois
begins to see that her cousin is not herself. Then Chloe, with an
irritated look, asks what Lois is doing there. Jason calls to Clark to
get on the field. Clark asks Lois to keep Chloe away from him just until
he can figure this out. Then he goes over and takes a drink of the
cheerleader brew. Now since the catalyst for the drink is kryptonite, it
has a very bad affect on Clark who is now being beat down on by the
other football players because Coach Teague gave them permission. Chloe
is in the background cheering Clark on as he is hit over and over again.
Clark sees the cheerleaders carry the cooler off realizing that it was
the drink that made him sick and weak.
In the barn loft, Clark is in pain. He is putting ice packs on his
sore ribs when he hears someone come in. At first he thinks that it is
Chloe; he tells her that he isn’t feeling well. Then he sees that it is
Coach Teague coming up into the loft. Clark tries to tell Jason that he
thinks there is something in the drink cooler. Jason only tells him that
he should have stayed away from his girlfriend. Clark is confused and
then Jason walks up to Clark and punches him causing Clark’s already
pain ravaged body to writhe with more pain. Jason continues to beat
Clark up even knocking him down through boards off the loft and down to
the ground. As Jason comes in for the kill, he is pulled away by Lex.
Jason falls to the ground and then quickly gets up and runs out of the
barn. Lex asks Clark who it was and Clark tells him that he didn’t get a
good look. Clark is sweating and the beads of sweat coming off his nose
are green in color. The kryptonite is leaving his system and he is
healing of all his injuries. Clark tries to hide this from Lex. But Lex
still notices by saying he thought there was a cut above his eye. Lex
came to see Clark because he wanted to give Clark a file with everything
that he had collected on him. Clark wants to know if the friendship was
so important, then why did he lie to him for so long? Lex says, “I don't
know, Clark. There's a darkness in me that I can't always control. I'm
starting to think that's my curse, why every relationship I have ends
badly.” Clark tells him that everyone has a dark side. Lex responds,
“Yeah. But I can feel mine creeping over the corners. Your friendship
helps keep it at bay. It reminds me that there are truly good people in
the world. I'm not willing to give up on that.” Clark looks at Lex
taking all this in carefully as Lex leaves.
Lois and Clark meet up that night at the high school. Clark tells
her that Jason attacked him in his loft and that the cheerleaders have
been spiking the water in the cooler which is why Chloe and the other
football players have been acting so weird. She tells him, “Nice work,
Smallville. You want to know what they're using?” He answers, “You
actually did some investigative reporting?” Lois leads him into the
Torch office to show him what she found. They look at the research on
the hormone, phenylethylamine done by Mandy and the other cheerleader
Rhonda. Clark repeats, “Phenylethylamine? "The love molecule," as he
reads the title. She tells him that in their research it didn’t work.
“Until they added the meteor rock,” Clark adds. Lois doesn’t follow.
“Whatever,” she says. Clark tells her that they need to figure out how
to reverse it. Lois reasons that it must wear off otherwise the
cheerleaders wouldn’t keep handing it out. Clark thinks they need to do
something soon before someone else gets hurt. Lois then remembers that
he drank some of it and so should be affected. Her idea is to go to the
pool party that Mandy has planned and Clark can act enamored of Mandy
and take the report in her bag so they can figure out how to reverse the
Pool party at Smallville High School that night. They have decorated
the indoor pool area up. There is loud music being played, and the
lights are dimmed. The football players and cheerleaders are there when
Lois and Clark arrive. Some are in the pool on inflatable furniture.
Others are around the pool socializing. One football player jumps into
the pool with a splash. Another football player, carrying a tray of
cocktails, walks by Mandy, who stands near the edge of the pool watching
everything, As the guy passes her, she picks up one of the cocktails.
Back behind the pool, some of the other players are dancing the hula
while dressed in grass skirts and coconut bikini tops. Others are lying
in lounge chairs drinking their cocktails. Lois and Clark notice Mandy
and her purse which holds the report. Lois tells Clark its show time.
She pushes him forward toward Mandy. Clark walks in front of Mandy and
says hi to her. She says hi back acting interested in him. He then tries
to act interested as well. He starts kissing her and then says he is
devoted to her. She pulls up his t-shirt looking at his abs. Then she
says, “Yeah, I can work with this.” She picks up her bag and takes
Clark’s arm leading him away from the party goers and to a quieter
place. Lois turns away so that Mandy doesn’t see her and then Clark
turns back to Lois and says quietly but with desperation, “Lois.” Lois
encourages him to go.
Mandy takes Clark into the gym where she leads him over to one of the
machines and forces him to sit down as she starts kissing him. Lois
follows behind and sees them kissing. A look of disgust is present on
her face. Clark and Mandy continue to make out and then Clark awkwardly
tries to say romantic things to Mandy. As Mandy is kissing Clark’s neck,
Clark moves her bag off her shoulder and throws it on the ground over
toward Lois. As Lois is just about to pick up the bag, Mandy gets up
with Clark. She picks up her bag and moves in Lois’ direction toward a
desk. Lois hides under the desk and Mandy lays on top of it bringing
Clark along with her attached to her lips. Clark gets the bag again and
lowers it to the ground where Lois lays in wait. Clark continues his
distraction of Mandy who takes his shirt off. Lois leaves with the bag.
In the hallway, Lois is reading the report which she took out of
Mandy’s bag when she is summarily hit from behind with a wrench by
Chloe. A fight ensues between them as Chloe is still affected by the
kryptonite juice. Lois defends herself but does not want to hurt her
Mandy is now on top of Clark asking if he is bored. He tells her no.
And she says good because she is just getting started. She falls back on
top of him, kissing him again.
In the hallway, the fight between Lois and Chloe continues. Lois
kicks the wrench away from Chloe forcing her to fall into a hot pipe.
Chloe screams and falls to the ground. She is now back to normal asking
what is going on. Lois looks up at the furnace and the hot pipe that
Chloe touched and realizes that heat ends the mind altering affects of
the love molecule drink.
Back in the locker room, Mandy is on top of Clark asking how far he
wants to go. Lois and Chloe walk back in and Lois says, “Right about
there would be great, thanks.” Mandy gets off of Clark who runs with his
shirt behind Lois and Chloe. As Clark puts on his shirt, Lois confronts
Mandy about what she did. Clark then asks what took them so long and
Chloe and Lois turn around to tell him about their “experiment” and that
heat changes them back. When they turn back around, Mandy is gone. As
Lois and Clark argue over whose fault it is that Mandy escaped, Mandy
returns. She is accompanied by other members of the football team who
are still under the influence. They are carrying bats and looking
threateningly at Clark, Chloe, and Lois. Clark steps in front of the
girls to face the other boys. Clark says, “Let's get out of here. Come
on, Lois.” Chloe walks out of the room with him, but Lois stands her
ground and tells the boys, “Bring it on, hotshot.” One of the boys steps
forward and swings his bat at her. She ducks and then kicks him in the
stomach sending him staggering backwards into the other boys. Clark
returns asking her what she is doing. Lois motions with her eyes to the
pipe above the football players’ heads which was labeled “Caution Hot.”
Clark uses his heat vision to burst the pipe, causing hot steam to pour
out over the boys. Lois isn’t sure how that happened and Clark says, “I
guess the pipe must've broken or something. Pretty lucky, huh?”
At the Luthor mansion, Clark is brought into Lex’s secret room where
he had been keeping all his research on Clark. Lex is in the room as
Clark walks in. He tells Clark that he wants him to see for himself that
the investigation is over. Clark points to a pile of crumpled up metal.
Lex tells him it is the remains of his Porsche. Clark wants to know why
it is still here. Lex responds, “To remind me of what I almost lost.”
Then he looks at Clark “It's over, Clark. It really is.” Lex wants to
give the friendship another try. Clark considers it and then nods. Then
Clark asks him for a favor regarding Lois Lane.
In the locker room before the big game, Clark is dressed in his
uniform except for his helmet. Jason approaches him, and tells him he’s
sorry for what happened in the barn. He also tells Clark that with
everything that has happened the guys are behind him now. Then Clark
asks, “Hey, coach? When you were in my loft, you told me to stay away
from your girl. Who were you talking about?” Jason turns and says,
“Honestly... I have no idea. I mean, like you said, I guess I wasn't
myself. Good luck today, Clark. I'll see you out there.”
During the game, there are 7 seconds left. The Crows are behind 31 to
28. It’s the fourth down on their 40 yard line. Lana, Chloe, and Lois
watch from the stands sitting in front of Martha and Jonathan. Lex is
also there a few rows away. Clark tells Nate to get open in the end
zone. The play begins. Clark moves into position and sends a long, high
sixty yard pass into the hands of Nate in the end zone. The crowd roars
with excitement. Overhead the announcer is heard, “Unbelievable! The
Crows win! The Crows win!” Clark pulls off his helmet smiling as he
looks over at his dad in the stands. His friends are cheering loudly.
The team comes together and lifts Clark onto their shoulders as they
parade him through the field.
After the game, Clark, dressed back in his t-shirt and jeans, walks
with Chloe. She tries to talk nonchalantly about things. Clark asks if
she is back at the Torch. She says “Yeah.” And Clark jokes that she made
a great cheerleader. She tells him that they should never talk about
that again. She admits that she still does have feelings for him. And
Clark sincerely tells her that he doesn’t but that he will still be
working at the Torch. Chloe says, “Wow. Superhero and journalist. What
are the odds?” Then Clark leans over and kisses Chloe on the cheek. She
softly says thanks as tears fill her eyes and she walks off. Moments
later, Clark is met by the intrepid Lois. She tells him that she got a
call from Met U admissions that a benefactor to the college with the
initials LL worked it out for her to be a freshman. Clarks says “Wow.
That’s great,” acting totally oblivious. Lois knows he must have had
something to do with it because why would Lex do this for her. Clark
tells her the important thing is that she got in and that she’s leaving.
He faces her, “Because that’s what you wanted, right?” She tells him not
to get all broken up over it. “But don't worry. I'll visit.” Clark asks,
“Is that a promise or a threat?” They both smile, and Lois punches Clark
on the arm. Her last words to him before she walks away are, “See you
# The WB advertised this episode as "Thirst".
During its original airing, this episode begins and ends with a brief
tribute to Christopher
Reeve (Dr. Swann), who passed away on October 10, 2004, three days
before the episode's premiere.
John Glover doesn't appear in this
Chloe burns her hands on a hot furnace, with the flames inches away from
the door she touches, yet shows no blistering, redness of skin, and
needs neither gauze nor bandages on her wounded palms.
No one seems the slightest bit curious how a shotgun, while in the hands
of an out-of-control student, could spontaneously heat to the point at
which the student would sustain second degree burns on his hands? Clark
even mentions the gun heating up, so it's clearly common knowledge.
When Chloe attacks Lois, she hits her pretty hard with a wrench. All
Lois does it turn around and then defend herself. She should have had a
little more reaction to a wrench in the back of the head. For that
matter, Lois lays a kick full-face into Chloe, who of course shows no
visible injury whatsoever here or afterward.
Jason actually says he sees Clark run really fast to rescue him.
But...Clark was moving in his usual F/X super-speed manner, blurs and
all. Shouldn't he know no human being moves like that?
The guys attacking Lois and Clark, along with Mandy, should be badly
scalded by the hot steam. There's no indication they've been parboiled
in the brief shot when they start to recover, but they should be
screaming in agony.
When Clark first joined the football team he started with a letter, and
typically you have to play a full year to get the letter.
Jason seems to have a pretty good slash from the glass during the
shotgun shootout, but instead of going to the hospital or getting
stitches, he just has Lana put a band-aid on it.
It's varied on and off again in the past, but Chloe specifically says
here she only has two reporters - Clark and Lois. Shouldn't she have
like...a staff? A high school covering even a mid-sized town (and
Smallville is pop. 40,000) usually has 5-10 reporters - if nothing else,
it looks good on your college application to do some newspaper work. But
the Torch only has...1 editor/reporter and two reporters - this doesn't
make much sense.
Despite the facial cuts she received in the previous episode, Lana shows
no signs of damage or scarring this episode.
In the kitchen scene when Clark is talking to Martha about Chloe coming
on to him, at one point Annette obviously steps up onto a box to
continue the scene with Tom. Later, before leaving for the Talon, she
Lois says "Hey, I'm trying to get out of Mayberry": referencing the show
with Andy Griffith.
Lois says "She's taking the fast train to 'Stepford': referencing the
movie where women were turned into robots, and remade in 2004.
Lois says "My cousin goes 'Martha Stewart' without the jail time":
referencing the famous hostess who ended up going to jail for
Lois says "He and the dean did the white man dance and, Shazam, I'm back
in school": in DC Comics continuity, Shazam is the magic word that
transforms a youngster named Billy Batson into Captain Marvel, "The
World's Mightiest Mortal", as well as the name of the wizard that
endowed Billy with that ability. Shazam is actually an acronym of six
mythological figures - Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and
Mercury - whose god-like powers are bestowed upon Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel has often been compared to Superman. "Shazam!" is also
the expression that Gomer Pyle used in the TV series Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C..
Lois & Chloe say "They're not really your colors": an in-joke reference
to Superman's colors of red and blue.
