Lionel: You could conquer the universe. The man of tomorrow... Clark Luthor!
Lois: Who are you?
Clark: I can't live in a world where you don't love me. So while I'm stranded
Tess 2: … stuck in your life there.
Tess: Your scar.
Clark Luthor: There's no take-backs when it comes to Gold-K. Get up! I'm not
going back to Lionel's world.
Tess: Lionel's here. He followed you, Clark, from his parallel world.
Lionel: I'm not the Lionel you knew.
Lois: If we find a detail that he overlooked, we could prove that he's a fake …
Tess: … and his entire house of cards will come crashing down.
Lionel: Wouldn't want to miss how it all turns out.
Clark: How was your day?
Lois: It depends. What day is it? I don't know if I should be going for this
Clark: Lois, your heart is in journalism. And you have a future in it. I know.
I've seen it.
Lois: I haven't seen you since breakfast yesterday.
Clark: Well, I'm planning to see you for a few moments at the altar.
Lois: Oh, come on. It's not that bad. I still live at the farm. I have a
toothbrush to prove it.
Clark: You haven't been home five nights this week.
Lois: And someone wants to forget that the two nights that I was home, he was
off cavorting around in Bangkok.
Clark: They had floods.
Lois: Something interesting?
Clark: Yeah. It's from my mom. She says that Conner is doing great in
Washington, D.C., and she's sending us an early wedding gift.
Clark: It's the deed to the farm.
Lois: Oh, for our wedding. Well, that's so...
Clark: Thoughtful? Yeah, um, she must want us to...
Lois: Yeah, start our new married life there.
Clark: Maybe. Or, with all the commuting to Metropolis and Bangkok... Maybe she
thinks we should sell it.
Clark Luthor: Home sweet home.
Woman: Good morning. Oh, just as quaint on the inside! A turn-key, I hope.
Lois: Uh, who, what, when, and why?
Marge: Oh, Manners. Marge Manners. Smallville Real Estate... We may be small,
but we sell big. Now, you live here with...
Marge: Is he here?
Lois: No, he had an emergency in... the fields this
morning... big, something important.
Marge: A fireplace... how charming. Is it original to the house?
Lois: Oh, if you mean old as hell, yes, and it has the soot buildup to prove it.
I mean, this thing smokes like the dickens.
Marge: I see. Well, if you don't mind, I'd like to take a look at the rest of
the house on my own.
Lois: Oh, just be careful of the last step. It's a suicide ride. I mean, we
can't get it to nail into place to save our lives... Literally! Clark Kent, if I
wasn't late, I would kick your bulletproof ass right now.
Clark: [on the phone] Mom, I really appreciate your gift. You really didn't have
to. No... yeah. Okay, well, tell Conner I said hello, and I'll try to come out
and visit soon. Okay. Bye.
Clark Luthor: Talk about nature versus nurture. I'm assuming you destroyed
yours? That explains why we didn't switch places. Seems that makes this a
one-way trip. Like they say, you can't go home again.
Priest: And we gather here today to say goodbye to our husband and friend on
this earth, Oliver Queen... and to offer our continued support to Mrs. Queen.
Jonathan: He got what he deserved! Rich brat! He s-stole all of our land! He...
he ruined a perfectly good town filled with... with honest working men and
honest working women. He took it right out from underneath us! No, let go of me!
I'm gonna show you, you son of a bitch! Let... let go of me!
Lois: You have some nerve showing up here after you put him in that grave.
Clark: It's not me. Clark Luthor... he did this.
Lois: How does it feel knowing that you're the most wanted man on Earth, to know
that everyone who sees you wants you dead?
Clark: Lois, put the rock away.
Lois: I wish that killing you with this rock could even begin to cause you as
much pain as you've caused me. But I guess that's the price of having a heart...
It can get broken.
Clark: I'm not him. He sent me from my world. Please, Lois, you have to believe
me. I was the one on the roof, and I'm the only one who knows that I told you I
couldn't live in a world...
Lois: … where I didn't love you.
Clark: It's me.
Lois: You have to get out of here. Everyone knows who you are.
Clark: He took the mirror box with him, Lois. It's not here. I have to get back
and stop him.
Lois: Everyone in the city is carrying meteor rock with them. That's why
Ultra-Man killed Oliver. He told them that those rocks would protect them from
Clark: The whole city?
Lois: You can't get 10 feet without it hitting you from every
Clark: I just have to check on something first.
Lois: You need to go... now. I'll try to throw them off your trail.
Clark: Thank you. You're putting a lot of trust in me... You know that.
Lois: Something tells me that I can, I guess.
Lois: Hey. Thanks for coming. After I left three messages, I got the feeling you
might be mad. I'm guessing it has to do with the fact that the realtor you sent
over to the house told you I was a psycho. She said I totally freaked out,
didn't she? That bad? Okay, look, I was mad that you made the decision to sell
without me, but it is your house, really. And, anyway, when I saw the realtor, I
realized that I was about to lose something that was really important to me. I
never had a permanent home growing up, and I remember living there with your
folks, even though I thought you were a total dork at the time. Want to help me
Clark Luthor: You're kind of cute when you squirm.
Lois: Okay. Bonus. Anyway... the point is, the farm is the closest to a home
that I've ever known. And when Marge showed up today, I felt ... afraid that if
we lost that, if I lost that home, then I would never find another one.
Clark Luthor: That'll never happen. That's why we're together.
Lois: That's why I found the rental pages. If you want to sell the farm, we'll
make a new start.
Clark Luthor: It's really hard to imagine a new life together with such a threat
still out there.
Lois: Which threat?
Clark Luthor: Lionel Luthor. And if he's truly walking around on this Earth...
Lois: I understand what this is about. If you stop showing up for dinner, I will
know where you are. You're hooked on our Lionel Cam, aren't you?
Clark Luthor: That's right. And, you know, searching for Lionel alone doesn't
sound like much fun. So why don't you come with me, and we can go over there
Lois: Oh, Clark Kent... frisky. I like it. But if you want to get your hands on
Lionel's GPS system, you're gonna have to ask Tess. She's the one with all her
claws in daddy dearest.
Clark Luthor: I called her. She didn't answer.
Lois: She's taking bids at the mansion, or what's left of it.
Clark Luthor: Well, I should go... be a hero and everything.
Lois: Yeah, but... but, before you go, just have a look at the place. I know the
view's not that nice, but I thought we could bring a little bit of Smallville
with us wherever we go. So?
Clark Luthor: I think I'm gonna like it here. First, we need to get rid of this
Lois: Clark? Aren't you gonna go? The sirens... someone could need you.
Clark Luthor: Yeah. I'll see you later.
Lois: Oh, my God. Come on, Tess. Damn it. Answer your phone.
Tess: I don't want development proposals. I want an estimate on how much it will
cost to tear this place down.
Contractor: My team's doing some exploratory work to gauge the structure, but...
let us take another look.
Tess: Don't worry. The weeds will grow up and take the place over. They are
Luthor weeds, after all.
Clark Luthor: There was a life here... A family.
Tess: They lived here, but this was never a home. So, do you want to have some
fun, hmm, and raze the place for me? You could save me some money.
Clark Luthor: Tearing this place down won't change the fact that you're a
Clark Luthor: I'm sorry. I just meant... Listen, Tess, I know better than anyone
what it's like to walk around with a... with a mark on you. It's lonely.
Tess: Being the world's greatest hero is just a little bit different than being
Clark Luthor: Angel or devil is in the eye of he who beholds it.
Tess: "He who beholds it"? What... have you been watching a little too much BBC
Clark Luthor: Considering our undeniable chemistry, I'd be a little hurt if you
didn't recognize me, sis.
Tess: What are you doing here? Where's Clark?
Clark Luthor: The only thing that matters in this world is you ... and dear old
Contractor: Uh, Ms. Mercer?
Clark Luthor: Don't worry. We have all the time in the world.
Clark: Dad?! Jonathan? Mr. Kent, I know you're here! I saw you walk in!
Lois: Clark thought he destroyed that months ago. He is not gonna like the fact
you and Tess snagged this from behind his back.
Emil: Yeah, well, maybe he'll feel different when it saves his life.
Lois: Okay. Is it drafty in here? 'Cause I feel a little cold... clammy, really.
Emil: Lois... We're gonna get him back.
Tess: Still no sign of him. Have you two made any progress?
Lois: We're just trying to get it juiced up again.
Tess: I'll head to Watchtower next. If I find Clark's darker side, I'll stall
him, but you two need to hurry. Lois, I have to call you back.
Clark Luthor: I can't wait to see you in it.
Tess: It's my perfect size.
Clark Luthor: That's because I know everything about you, Tess. Every move you
Clark: I'm not who you think I am.
Jonathan: Oh, I think I've got a pretty good idea of who you are. You're the man
who single-handedly destroyed everything I ever cared about. The day you got
here was the worst ... day of my life. The meteor shower wrecked my farm, set
all of my fields on fire. I couldn't keep up with the work. I couldn't keep up
with the bills. Then Queen comes in and buys it all right out from under me and
won't give me a chance to get it back. He goes around. He's buying up every
little bit of Smallville that he can so he can get his hands on these stupid
little ... green rocks.
Clark: Listen... You have to let me go. You have no idea what's gonna happen if
they... Have you been living here?
Jonathan: It's all I've got.
Clark: It hasn't been yours for years. You've been out here, alone, hanging
Jonathan: Hanging onto my land, hanging onto my birthright. You see, nobody has
any idea what fell out of that meteor shower but me... Gold. I found a chunk of
Clark: Gold meteorite?
Jonathan: That's right. And I thought, maybe if I kept digging, I would find
enough that I could finally buy my farm back. But now … I'm thinking maybe I
already have something that's more valuable... You.
Clark: You have to believe me.
Jonathan: The most wanted man in the entire world is hogtied right here in my
living room. You're my ticket out of this. You see, with the reward money I get
for you, I can get the deed to my farm back, and I can finally start living my
Clark: Mom. What about Mom? Martha. What does any of this mean without her?
Jonathan: What the hell do you know about Martha?
Clark: She's supposed to be your wife. She's the reason you fought so hard for
all of this.
Jonathan: Why the hell would I fight for somebody who gave up on me the minute I
needed her the most?
Clark: From what I'm seeing, it looks like you gave up on yourself first. You
always said that you're nothing without her. I look like somebody else, but I'm
from a different place. And in that place, things are different! You and Martha
were married... and happy. And I was lucky because, on the day of the meteor
shower, Lionel Luthor didn't find me... You did, and you raised me as your son.
Just untie me. If you don't believe me, then you'll have a great story to tell
Bill and Remy and the other guys down at the feed shop. Just let me show you one
Clark Luthor: Now, this fits you perfectly.
Tess: I'm not sure what to say.
Clark Luthor: As I recall, talking was never your strong suit.
Tess: Why did you out yourself to me?
Clark Luthor: You would have figured it out, and I would have known.
Tess: You don't think I could have hidden that from you?
Clark Luthor: No. You get flustered around me, Tess. You have feelings for Clark
Kent. If you were meeting him here, you wouldn't be so nervous, and you'd be in
Tess: Funny. I don't feel out of control.
Clark Luthor: That's because you have a habit of lying to yourself.
Tess: I'm not the Tess you knew in your world.
Clark Luthor: Not entirely, but I am looking forward to discovering the
differences. Your country crush... He doesn't appreciate you as a partner, Tess,
and certainly not as a woman.
Tess: What is it that you want?
Clark Luthor: You... and Dad... For different reasons, of course.
Tess: If you're here to take out Lionel, I'm afraid I won't be the one that can
Clark Luthor: Yes, you will.
Tess: Not if you're talking about murder.
Clark Luthor: He has a hold over us. And you need someone to come in and save
you. That's what you want. I'm guessing you stay awake at night, scared of
nightmares ... of being abandoned. You picture the day when you defeat him. I
can give you that. And once Lionel's out of the picture, you can finally live
the life that you're too afraid to even dream about ... with me. You've had a
lot of second chances here, Tess, and I'm only asking for the same. People know
about the meteor rock where I'm from, and they all know how to kill me. The
whole world knows how to kill me there. But here I can have a fresh start. I can
enjoy all the things that this world has to offer without the attention, because
that was my mistake in the other world. But this isn't about us. Unfortunately,
the situation here is kill or be killed.
Tess: Let me get this straight... You're offering me a life with you, but if I
don't help you, you'll kill me?
Clark Luthor: That's certainly not my preference.
Jonathan: I figure you got about five minutes before those cops show up out
Clark: Please still be here.
Jonathan: Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey, put the gun down!
Clark: This was Grandpa's.
Jonathan: How'd you know it was up there?
Clark: You kept it close for when the coyotes came around the livestock. Now,
look, this may be hard for you to understand, considering everything that's
happened to you in this world... You taught me so much. You taught me how to be
fair and honest. You taught me the only person in control of your destiny...
Jonathan: … is you.
Clark: You were the man that I tried to live up to. You didn't have powers, and
you didn't have a destiny to save the world, but you were my hero ... and I lost
Jonathan: You have to get out of here.
Clark: I'm not leaving you.
Jonathan: You don't even know me. I'm just an ...obsessed man, hanging onto a
place as if memories could make up a lifetime.
Clark: This place isn't your home ... Martha is. It's not the place ... it's the
people in it. And Martha's still here. You still have a chance. It's better to
risk everything than hold onto nothing.
Jonathan: Who told you that?
Clark: You did.
Jonathan:. They're almost here. You got to go. Goodbye. Good luck ... son.
Lois: Clark. Thank God!
Clark: He was right there, Lois, standing right there.
Clark: You brought me back. Where's Clark Luthor? I need to find him.
Clark Luthor: In a few moments, we'll both be free.
Tess: Sometimes Lionel's tracking system goes off-line as the satellite info
updates. This could take me a little.
Clark Luthor: I have every confidence in your abilities.
Tess: Just give me a minute.
Clark Luthor: Pretty soon, we'll have all the time in the world.
Tess: What do you plan to do with him?
Clark Luthor: You leave that to me. Now, don't tell me that you're actually
wrestling with the morality of whether or not the old bastard should die or not.
Clark Luthor: Good.
Tess: Follow the GPS. It will lead you right to him.
Clark Luthor: I'll be back ... to start our new life together.
Tess: Please. Please. Did you find him ... or did he elude us again?
Clark Luthor: It's done. And now it's time to celebrate. Really? I knew a Luthor
would die tonight. And when you reprogrammed the tracker, I couldn't find Lionel
... So that leaves you. You chose him over me, Tess.
Tess: He's my father.
Clark Luthor: He's our father. And no one knows what a monster he is more than
me. And I thought you understood that.
Tess: You said... you said that we could have a life together. And in some
twisted, messed-up way, it's what I want... with you. I can't bear it, but I do.
Clark Luthor: I could never trust you. It's too late.
Clark Luthor: How good of you to join us. I assume our damsel in distress is ...
Clark: … somewhere safe.
Clark Luthor: Of course. Well, now that she's out of the way... I guess without
the darker side, you're no match for me.
Clark: Thanks for coming.
Clark Luthor: Oh, I should have known... You took that beating a little too
easily. I had one of these places in my world.
Clark: Our birth father is here.
Clark Luthor: This is nothing but a cold music box without the music. Don't kid
Clark: Lionel lied to you about him. Jor-El left us the wisdom of the
universe... Lessons and guidance.
Clark Luthor: You may have needed your hand held, but I made my way just fine.
Clark: You made yourself the most hated man in your world, but there's still a
chance of redemption for you.
Clark Luthor: Redemption? Looks like the two of us have different
Clark: I'm sorry that you weren't found by Jonathan and Martha Kent. The thing
is … you could have killed Tess in an instant, but something was holding you
back. You can go to your world and show people what you can give them... Change
Clark Luthor: Why would you ever believe in me?
Clark: Because I know you. And Lionel's not there anymore. You don't need to be
defined by your past. You can choose a different future. Just trust me. Jor-El!
Clark Luthor: Father?
Jor-El: Welcome home, my son.
Emil: So, I pulled the geological surveys you gave me, and Clark's info from the
alt-world was right.
Emil: Well, the surprise at the end of the Kryptonite rainbow... The gold stuff
Tess: What does it do to him?
Emil: Well, drawing on the Veritas journals, Chloe's database, and my best
calculations, it could take away his powers... for good.
Tess: I'll get the team right on it.
Emil: Anything else you want to tell me?
Tess: Um. You know, Emil, it's been a really long day. I'm gonna need a bigger
hint than that.
Emil: Right. I was inputting the surveillance data, and I noticed you and Clark
Luthor had quite the romantic dinner.
Tess: I don't know what your definition of romance is, but mine is not facing
the threat of having my neck snapped in two.
Emil: You looked tempted to me... by him, by his offer to make your father
disappear for good. That's not the Tess I know.
Tess: Maybe I'm not the person you think I am.
Emil: Maybe you are. Maybe you just don't believe it yet.
Lois: Admittedly, I'm no Martha Kent, so instead of lemonade, you get the finest
microbrew in Kansas. Your dad's jacket... I've never seen you wear that before.
Clark: Yeah, it's just a jacket.
Lois: Kind of, but everything around here has memories attached to the place.
Clark: I don't need things to remind me of what I've had here.
Lois: Clark, it seems like... Something happened on the other side that really
shook you up. What happened?
Clark: Nothing. I was just trying to find my way back home.
Lois: Not a bad home to come back to.
Clark: You know I didn't call that realtor.
Lois: I know. Who could have guessed that when a deed switches hands that the
ambulance chasers... well, the "for sale"-sign chasers... show up on your
Clark: It did shine a light on a few things we've been avoiding. With you at The
Daily Planet most nights and me out patrolling...
Lois: … the larger planet.
Clark: I guess I've... Lois, I've been trying to hold onto things that used to
protect me... This farm, my parents. I've known we should be moving to
Metropolis for a while now. I guess... I was afraid that I'd lose myself if I
let it all go.
Lois: Clark... I would never let that happen.
Clark: I've been worried that if we didn't have this place to come home to...
that we'd lose each other. This place grounds us. Maybe that was just an excuse
for me not to... not to move on. It's not the place that makes the home.
Lois: Smallville is my home, Clark. Not this one. This Smallville... right here.
You're all I'll ever need. And if you need to move to Metropolis because that's
who the world needs you to be, then a studio apartment with rusty pipes is just
fine for me. In fact, I think they invented an apple-pie air freshener.
Clark: I'll call the realtor in the morning.
