First aired October
Clark: I like this car. How much is it?
Woman: If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
Clark: Try me.
Clark: This should cover it.
Clark: Let me take it for a test drive.
Attendant: Cool ride, Kal.
Clark: You like it? It's yours.
Woman: So, Kal. Where you from?
Clark: Someplace I'm trying to forget.
Woman: Me too. What is that?
Clark: It's a birthmark.
Woman: Ooh, it's pretty big for a birthmark.
Clark: Don't touch.
Woman: Ow! That hurt! Jerk.
Bartender: What's the deal, Kal? Every night you roll in here with a
babe, but you always leave empty-handed. What are you, a monk or something?
Clark: What's the point of starting something if it's just gonna end
Clark: Aaah! Aaaah!
Clark holds the receiver to his ear, breathing softly.
Martha: Clark. Is that you? Please, come home.
Man: Everyone on the floor now! Stay down! Face down! Hit the
Thief: Shoot the bastard!
Clark: Stick to balloon animals.
Clark: Sorry, Krusty. I saw the bank first.
Woman: Fall to your knees!
Man: Put your hands up.
Maggie: Drop the bag! This is your final warning!
Pete: His crimes just keep getting bigger and bigger.
Martha: We can't be sure it's Clark.
Pete: Look, I know you don't want to believe, but ... it's him. What
are we gonna do?
Martha: There really isn't anything--
Jonathan: Yeah. You get in the truck. I'm gonna get my coat.
Martha: Where are you going?
Jonathan: I'm going to get him.
Martha: He knows what red kryptonite does. He can take that ring off
Jonathan: Martha, I don't know that.
Martha: Jonathan, the phone calls. They're the first step.
Jonathan: I can't just sit around in this farmhouse and do nothing
Martha: Well, even if you find him, how exactly do you plan on
bringing him home? It's been three months. We've been searching all that time.
We filed a missing person's report, we have done everything we can.
Martha: The fact is Clark doesn't want to be found. He'll come home to
us when he's ready. We just have to have faith. Okay?
Chloe: Hey. I haven't seen you in like a week. I was wondering if we
still lived under the same roof.
Lana: I'm swamped here. Your dad said you spent the entire afternoon
at the Daily Planet.
Lana puts the coffee down at a table.
Chloe: Yeah, as far as my editor's concerned, picking up his dry
cleaning is more of a priority than meeting face to face with the junior
columnist. I thought maybe we could have lunch.
Lana: I can't. With Lex gone the Talon's been relegated to LuthorCorp
accountants who have no interest in a coffee shop in Smallville.
Chloe: Okay. Uh, well, if you need a ride to Lex's funeral I'm always
available for chauffeuring and moral support.
Lana: Thanks. I'm going with the Kents.
Chloe: Have you heard from Clark?
Lana: I was thinking of staying in Metropolis with Nell for a
few days. I feel guilty I haven't spent more time searching for him.
Chloe: He's not lost, Lana.
Lana: You may have written him off, but I can't give up hope.
Chloe: Clark ran away. He made a conscious decision to leave his
friends, his family, and the girl he claimed to love.
Chloe: Lana, I know we've said our piece about what happened and we
can continue doing the avoidance dance we've perfected all summer, but the fact
is I'm worried about you.
Lana: I'm the last person you need to worry about.
Chloe: Pining over Clark only leads to personal misery. Trust me, I
wrote the book. Now you need to move on. He obviously has.
Lana: I don't believe that. I just think he's waiting for the right
person to find him.
Clark: Who sent you?
Morgan: I did. Morgan Edge.
Morgan: That's a hell of a scar. How'd you get it?
Clark: My dad's a real bastard. What do you want?
Morgan: You came to my club flashing money, and then you interrupt my
guys at the bank. I take it that was not coincidence.
Clark: Those clowns? They work for you?
Morgan: You've made quite a reputation for yourself. I set up this
test so I could see with my own eyes if you were man or myth. And clearly,
Clark: Well, I'm glad I could clear it up for you ... Mr. Edge.
Morgan: I'd like to talk about a job opportunity.
Clark: Thanks. But I'm really not looking for work right now. I like
to fly solo.
Morgan: No matter how many bullets bounce off you, Kal, you're still a
kid, and I'm the biggest crime boss in Metropolis.
Clark: Well, I would think you could afford better help.
Morgan: That's why we're talking. I got this one job. It'll make you
Midas rich. So when you are tired of playing the little league, you know where
to find me.
Chloe: Mr. Luthor? Mr. Luthor?
Chloe: Mr. Luthor. I got your message. I admit I was surprised to hear
that you wanted to meet today considering the fact that tomorrow is Lex's--
Lionel: My son is gone, Miss Sullivan, and there is nothing I can do
now but put his memory to rest and get on with the business of living.
He walks to the wall where the octagonal groove was. We see that it isn't
Lionel: You remember there used to be an octagonal keyhole here.
Chloe: Vaguely. I didn't spend much time in this cave.
Lionel: Trust me, it was right here. It disappeared the same day as
that ... inexplicable explosion on the Kent farm. The same day that our young
friend Clark went into exile. You haven't seen him ... have you?
Chloe: After the fight that Clark and I had, I'd be the last person
Lionel: Mmm. I've enjoyed reading your column, Miss Sullivan. You're a
good writer. "The worst sin of age is to forget the trials of youth."
Lionel: I just wish that report you did for me on Clark Kent had the
same kind of insight.
Chloe: Well, I gave you everything I had.
Lionel: But you came to me with such vigor, and now it seems your
enthusiasm for our arrangement is, uh, waning.
Chloe: It's kind of hard to find information when the subject is M.I.A.
Lionel: It might help you to view that as a test of your reporter's
mettle. You're such a promising young talent, I'd hate to see an opportunity
like this vanish like the keyhole on this wall here.
Chloe: Threatening me, Mr. Luthor, isn't gonna make Clark magically
Lionel: [Reading from the article] "All decisions have
consequences." Clark chose to run away from his. You gonna run away from yours
too, Miss Sullivan?
Louis: Whoa, easy there, Lex.
Lex: Where am I?
Louis: Same place you've been the last three months. Paradise.
You had another fever dream. Malaria's still got you. You were calling her name
Louis: That bitch who set you up.
Lex: Louis. I appreciate everything you've done for me, but if
you ever refer to my wife that way again, I won't be held responsible for my
Louis: See I was just sitting here running through your story in
my head. Now you wake up, Helen and the pilot are gone, and you're left to die.
Louis: You've got to at least consider the possibility.
Lex: Don't you have anything else to talk about?!
Louis: All these years alone on an island? Not really.
Lex: Why don't you go work on the raft.
Louis: Because I am not gonna let you commit suicide! You could
end up drifting for weeks and die alone! Is that what you want?
Lex: I want to get off this island and find out the truth.
Louis: Oh, the truth. See the way I figure it, either your father set
you both up, Helen managed this on her own, or the two of them were in league.
Why are you in such a hurry to get back to a family that twisted?
Lex: Because my life is not here.
Louis: Well, it doesn't sound so great back there. You've got to stop
looking at this place as a curse, Lex.
Lex: Shut up!
Louis: It is a gift! Your life has been stripped down to its bare
essence. To the outside world you're already dead. Why not let your old self
rest in peace?
Lionel: I think the cruelest fate that a parent can suffer is to lose
a child. Lex was touched with greatness. We'd only just begun to see that
potential. I-I can only imagine the heights he would have soared to if his life
... hadn't been ... cut short so tragically. These, uh, rituals are meant
to bring closure, but there are so many unanswered questions about Lex's
disappearance. Questions I hope that will someday be answered, but those answers
won't bring him back. I would've searched for a thousand years if I thought he
could be found. We can't hold onto the past. In my heart, I will be searching
for my son forever.
Woman's voice: So will I.
Lionel: If you're here to grandstand for the paparazzi, I will
have you escorted out.
Helen: I wish to pay my last respects to my husband.
Lionel: Then, Mrs. Luthor, allow me to leave before the hypocrisy
Chloe: Clark, I need to talk to you about--
Clark: Chloe, I told you to never come back here again! Who else knows
Chloe: No one. Your secret's safe with me, but we need to talk
Clark: I'm busy.
Chloe: Well, I'm coming in. Now what's your deal? You come to
Metropolis and you're a completely different person.
Clark: Maybe it's the real me.
Chloe: Well, if it is then I definitely prefer the country Clark.
Now... How did you afford all this?
Clark: Why, Chloe? So you can put me in your column and write a big
story about me? Maybe that's why you kept my secret.
Chloe: I kept your secret because you asked me to. I was hoping that
if I left you alone you'd get a grip and come home. Now there are people in
Smallville that still haven't given up on the search.
Clark: I've erased Smallville from my past.
Chloe: Really? Is that why you're still wearing your school ring?
Chloe: You know, sooner or later someone else is gonna find you.
Clark: You were lucky.
Chloe: Maybe so. But what are you gonna do if one day Lana shows up on
your doorstep, or your dad? How are you gonna explain this to them?
Clark: I'm through explaining myself to anyone!
Chloe: Clark, Lana is a wreck and your parents are losing the farm!
Clark: What do I care? I'm never gonna go back anyway.
Chloe: Clark, you were not forced into exile. You ran away from your
problems. You are not being noble, you're being a coward!
Clark: Chloe, get out! If you tell anyone where I am, I'll go so far
away from Metropolis that no one will ever find me!
Chloe: I don't even know who you are anymore.
Clark: Get out!
Lionel: The highlight of the somber affair was the performance of the
grieving widow played to perfection by Dr. Helen Bryce in her first public
appearance since her dramatic rescue.
Helen: I want you out of my house.
Lionel: You can drop the act, Helen, you're among family. And it's not
your house yet.
Helen: I'm sure you didn't come all this way for a condolence call.
Lionel: I won't give my condolences to a murderer.
Helen: I didn't murder Lex.
Lionel: Oh, oh, that's right. Let me see if I can remember your
account of the harrowing event. You woke up having been robbed, found the pilot
jumping out of the airplane with only one parachute left. Lex valiantly offered
to give it to you and went down to his death in the crippled aircraft. That's a
wonderful piece of fiction.
Helen: I think the police would find it interesting that you hired me
to spy on Lex.
Lionel: You murdered my son. I won't rest till I've brought your
duplicity to light.
Lionel: You know, Helen, black widows may be powerful predators, but
every predator is somebody else's prey.
Lex: Louis! Louis! Louis! Louis! There's a plane! Did you hear
Louis: I heard it.
Lex: What's your problem? That's the first one that's flown over in
Louis: Too late now. It's long gone.
Lex: That's great. That's just great!
Louis: You're wasting your time! They're never gonna see it.
Lex: Son of a bitch. I need to get off this island! You know in
your heart this is where you belong. Now you can rage against it but ultimately
you'll have to accept it.
Lex: You stay away from me, you freak.
Martha: I spoke to the bank. They still want us out before the
Jonathan: You know, it's amazing how you can fit your whole life into
the back of a pickup truck.
Martha: Is, uh, Bill Ross still okay with us storing our stuff in his
Jonathan: Yeah, he said as long as we need it, it's fine with him.
Martha: Oh, Lana gave me the keys to the apartment over the Talon.
Martha pulls the keys from her pocket and hands them to Jonathan.
Martha: Yeah, it-it's small.
Jonathan: It's okay, Martha, Martha, Martha...
Martha: It's just not fair. This farm has been in your family for
three generations, four counting Clark.
Jonathan: It's sad.
Jonathan: Since when have our lives been fair anyway, huh? You
remember the day we found out we couldn't have children? You grabbed my hand and
you told me not to worry. You said that we would have happy days again, and you
were right. We have had happy days with Clark. But even though he's not here
with us anymore, Martha Kent, I am here to tell you that we will have happy days
Martha: Clark! Clark! Clark. Clark! Clark...
Chloe: Thank you. Lana, hey, the other day I, uh, I didn't mean
to push my own personal brand of self-denial on you.
Lana: It's okay, Chloe. We're all dealing with Clark in our own way.
Chloe: Yeah, and my way is to pull the emotional ripcord and pretend
like it didn't happen. It's a force of habit when people walk out of my life.
Lana: I can't give up on him without a fight. I already blew it
Chloe: Blew it? How?
Lana: When Clark was leaving he asked me to go with him. I said no,
but I can't help thinking that if I had gone I could have convinced him to come
Chloe: Lana, you can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved.
Lana: I love him.
Chloe: It's okay. Your feelings for Clark aren't exactly breaking
Lana: I saw him yesterday. Just for a second at Lex's funeral.
Chloe: Are you sure?
Lana: Positive. But he took off right away. I'm gonna go back up there
and post these.
Lana: Could you give me a lift?
Chloe: Sure. But you don't need the fliers. I know where he is.
Chloe: Yeah, okay, you're gonna totally hate me for this, but I found
him two months ago. Some friends of mine from the Planet snuck me into this club
and there he was, and I couldn't believe it was him. So I followed him back to
Lana: You've known where he's been this entire time and you haven't
said anything to anybody?
Chloe: Well, I didn't have a choice. He said if anyone else found out,
he'd run away to somewhere no one would find him.
Lana: I can't believe you've been telling me to give up on him.
Chloe: Lana, he's not acting like himself. He could be dangerous.
Lana: Just give me the address.
Chloe: Well, I'll take you.
Lana: I think you've done enough already.
Clark: What are you doing here?
Lana: Looking for you. Clark, you need to come home.
Clark: Smallville's not my home anymore.
Lana: I am not letting your ride out of my life again.
Clark: Then get on.
Louis: Lex. I'd like you to meet my dad.
Lex: You killed your father.
Louis: Yeah, it was inevitable. I had to do it. Only one of us
could survive. See, back there, he was a rich and powerful guy. He was
always criticizing me, never thinking I was good enough. And it just kept
chipping away, chipping away till there was nothing left. I thought you
and I were kindred spirits.
Lex: No, Louis. You're a psychopath.
Louis: Well ... there's one in all of us. I just let mine out. Aaah!
Waitress: Hey! What's up, Kal?
Lana: Why'd she call you Kal?
Clark: It's my secret identity.
Lana: Clark. Clark! I have been worried about you for three months and
you've been hanging around in nightclubs?
Clark: You're so cute when you're angry. Lana, if you keep talking
about Hicksville, you're gonna be on the next bus going back. Now I thought you
were here to have some fun.
Bartender: What's up, Kal?
Clark: Hey, what's up.
Lana: You're right. I'm sorry. I'll go freshen up.
Clark: Hey, why? I think you look great.
Clark: I'm glad you're here.
Lana: Me too.
Bartender: If she's the one you've been saving yourself for, I can
understand the wait.
Lana: Mr. Kent, I found Clark.
Jonathan: Lana, where are you?
Lana: A nightclub in Metropolis called Atlantis. He's acting really
Jonathan: Lana, listen to me. Clark is not himself right now. I
want you to be very careful. Now I'm on my way down there, but if he wants to
leave, I don't want you to try and stop him.
Clark: Who you talking to? Who's this?
Jonathan: Clark, it's me.
Clark: Jonathan. How's the farm?
Jonathan: Clark, your mother and I love you very much and we want you
to come home.
Clark: Is that right? Hey, what about not dwelling on the past and
making a fresh new start? Come on, you can admit it. You're happier I'm gone.
Jonathan: Son, that's not true.
Clark: I'm not your son! And you're not my parents, you never have
been! You never will be!
Lana: Clark, what is the matter with you? Your parents love you! I
Clark: Do you always betray the people you love?
Jonathan: I've got to go get him.
Martha: How, Jonathan? If he sees you he could either run, or if he's
angry enough he could hurt you. You can't stop him.
Jonathan: Martha, if I don't go and get him now, we may lose him
Morgan: I'm glad you decided to consider my offer. But why the change
Clark: My past is catching up to my present. I need to disappear.
Morgan: Free tonight?
Clark: My calendar just opened up.
Morgan: This is an account in the Grand Cayman. Here's how much
is waiting for you.
Clark: That's a serious amount of zeroes.
Morgan: It's a serious job. I need you to break into a secure
building. The office on the 60th floor has a very valuable package. It's in a
titanium-reinforced steel safe. Not a job for mere mortals.
Clark: Sounds like easy money.
Morgan: I haven't told you where you're going yet.
Clark: LuthorCorp Plaza. You want me to break into Lionel Luthor's
Morgan: Will that be a problem?
Clark: No. It'll be my pleasure.
Louis: Lex. Lex. Lex. Lex!!! I know every inch of this
island. Where are you going?
Lex: Aaaah! You can't kill me! Aaah! Aaah!
Man: Hey, mon.
Man: What happened?
Lex: No. No. No. I had to do it. He was crazy. I had no choice. I had
to kill him!
Man: Kill who?
Man: There ain't nobody there, mon.
Lex: No. No! Louis!
Man: These islands can mess with your head, play tricks, mon. You're
lucky my captain saw your fire.
Lex: No. It wasn't a trick. He was real. You have to believe me. He
Jonathan: He wasn't ready! But you, you had to keep pushing him
anyway, didn't you? What kind of a race are you people? No wonder you destroyed
Jor-El: I am Jor-El, the true father of Kal-El.
Jonathan: His name is Clark Kent! I am his father, I raised him.
Jor-El: You have fulfilled your function in Kal-El's destiny.
Jonathan: His destiny is whatever he makes of it.
Jor-El: His destiny is too great for you to comprehend. This was Kal-El's
first test to see if he was ready to begin his journey.
Jonathan: He's too young! He needs more time!
Jor-El: This phase of Kal-El's journey is almost complete. It will be
of no consequence if he returns to you ... for now.
Jonathan: You'll bring him home?
Jor-El: If you want him, you must retrieve him yourself.
Jonathan: I can't. He's too powerful.
Jor-El: Are you willing to sacrifice anything to get him back?
Jonathan: Yes! For my son I'll do anything.
Jonathan: Aaah! Aaah!
Jonathan: Hello, Clark.
Clark: Jonathan Kent. Isn't it a little past your bedtime? How'd
you find me?
Jonathan: Your biological father.
Clark: You two are working together now, huh? That's cute. But I
didn't listen to him and I'm certainly not gonna listen to you.
Jonathan: Clark. You need to put all this behind you, son. Come on
home to the people who love you.
Clark: You should've stayed in Smallville.
Jonathan: Son, you're coming home with me. Now.
