Smallville Transcripts


First aired January 28th, 2004

Chloe, Adam and Lois from "Deleted"

Provided by Suzanne
Proofread by Deanna

Max Taylor: Not even a good-bye? 45590815.JPG

[ Scoffs ]

Max: Come on in.

Chloe: Blacklisted before I even graduate... that's got to be a record.

Max: I don't know who you ticked off around here, but you sure ruffled some feathers.

Chloe: I have enemies in high places.

Max: Well, we're going to miss you.

Chloe: Yeah, right. You're just gonna miss the free proofreader.

Maureen: Max, your wife's called three times about dinner.

Max: All right.  Tell her I'm on my way. Seriously, if there's anything I can ever do...

Chloe:'s just a few stories I've been working on. I would love for you to take a look at them.

Max: I couldn't print your name in the classifieds right now without catching hell.

Chloe: Well, what about a pseudonym? She's my cousin. She won't mind at all. She's not interested in journalism.

Max: Lois Lane.

Lex: I was looking for the, uh, on-call tech guy.

Molly: Well, you found her.

Lex: work in the tech department?

Molly: Would you rather have a Playstation-addicted dork wearing a "Star Wars" T-shirt? Molly.

Lex: Lex.

Molly: So, what's the crisis, Lex?

Lex: Well, I'm trying to finish a presentation, my program keeps crashing, and I don't have the time to deal with it. Probably a virus.

Molly: I would assume so.

Lex: You know, I've only been back a few weeks, but I'm surprised I haven't seen you.

Molly: Back from where?

Lex: It's a long story.

Molly: Oh. I.E. --None of my business. There we go. This should scan for any viruses. 455908B0.JPGAre you a do-it-yourselfer, or you need me to do it for you?

Lex: I think I can handle it.

[ Whirring ]

[ Whirring stops ]

[ Beeping ]

Pete: Welcome to the "Torch" -- unplugged.

Chloe: Pete, what happened to my computers?

Pete: A bunch of delivery men stopped by this afternoon. Luthor Corp took the computers back.

Chloe: But they were donated.

Pete: Yeah, well, I guess the grinch changed his mind. Oh, yeah --some girl stopped by. Didn't leave a name.

Chloe: Thanks, Pete. 45590916.JPG

[ Engine revs ]

[ Tires screech ]

[ Door opens ]

Clark: Chloe?

[ Beep ] 
Clark: The last thing I remember, I was in the library. I was working on my history paper.

4559096B.JPGAdams: Stone sober. Miss Sullivan, would you care to shed any light on Mr. Kent's version of the incident?

Chloe: You mean, the part where I wasn't eating pavement? I don't know. Um... it just -- it looked like he lost control of his truck.

Adams: Well, Mr. Kent, your family sure has its way of going through vehicles.

Clark: Chloe?

Chloe: Is that all you need from Clark?

Adams: Why don't you go on home. I got a few more questions for our Miss Sullivan.

[ Elevator bell dings ]

Lana: Well, I'm glad you're feeling better, Adam. Clark, are you okay? I just heard about the accident.

Clark: I'm okay. But Chloe's a little scraped up.

Lana: Um... Clark, this is Adam.

Clark: Nice to finally meet you.

Adam: So, you're Clark. Heard a lot about you.

Clark: Didn't realize there was that much to say. How'd you get here so quickly? 45590A69.JPG

Lana: I was just upstairs visiting Adam -- physical therapy.

Clark: Isn't that where you two met?

Adam: Yeah, I thought I'd see you when you dropped by to visit Lana, but I guess you got busy.

Clark: Looks like we've all been busy.

[ PDA beeps ]

Lana: Ever since Lex gave me this thing, it's like no one can change a coffee filter on their own.

[ Beeping ]

Man: Mr. Luthor.

Lex: Where's Molly?

Man: Uh...Molly?

Lex: She was working here last night. She loaned me this.

Man: I've been looking for that. We don't have a Molly. I was the one on-call last night -- from home.

Lex: She was here, unpacking these computer boxes.

Man: Huh. Well, that might explain how all those hard drives got wiped out.

Adam: There is a lot going on in that cup. 45590ABA.JPG

Lana: Well, it is your first time here, and I'm trying really hard to get the thumbs-up.

[ Laughs ]

Lana: This place has really been a refuge for me.

Adam: Refuge from what?

Lana: Oh, just everything.

Adam: It was interesting meeting Clark.

Lana: We're just friends.

Adam: Just friends. Well, for friends, you're very uncomfortable around each other.

Lana: Yeah, well, we've got a lot of history.

Adam: Hmm. I saw the way he looked at you.

Lana: Clark doesn't know what he wants. Besides, I can't control the way he feels.


Lana: Clark will always be a very important part of my life. But whatever there was between us... is gone.

Chloe: If you're looking for signs of tampering, 45590B0E.JPG. There's nothing wrong I asked the mechanic.

Clark: There's got to be some explanation.

Chloe: As to why you tried to mow me over? I'm ready and waiting.

Clark: Didn't you tell the sheriff I lost control of the truck?

Chloe: I was covering for you, Clark. You chased me onto the sidewalk. Now, I-I know that you're still upset with me about this whole Lionel thing, but don't you think that manslaughter is a little beyond "eye for an eye"?

Clark: Chloe, you don't think I tried to hurt you.

Chloe: I don't know. But the way you've been acting lately... I don't know, Clark. I can only apologize so many times.

Clark: I have been having a hard time getting over this. Every time I see you, I can't help picturing you and Lionel talking. You're not the same person you used to be.

Chloe: Kind of like if I moved to Metropolis, 45590B40.JPGbecame a motorcycle riding party animal, and told you to get out of my life. Kind of like that, right? Look, you know what? As much fun as this guilt trip is, I came here to see if you put any more pieces together from last night. What happened after the library?

Clark: I don't even remember leaving the library. The last thing I do remember --I was working on my laptop.

Chloe: Well, the computer recovered your paper. That's an interesting take on General Sherman.

Clark: I didn't even finish my sentence. It says I downloaded an e-mail before the accident. But it won't open.

Chloe: Who's "Brainwave"?

Adam: Remind me again what your school mascot is. Oh... wait, it's a bird.

Lana: Okay, it's a small town. We take our school spirit very seriously. Oh, I forgot my history book. I'll meet you outside?

Adam: Okay 45590BB5.JPG

[ PDA beeps ]

Chloe: Lana. Hey, I've been looking for you. Lana, what are you doing?

Lana: Killing Chloe Sullivan.

[ Girls screaming ]

Lana: What happened?

Chloe: So we can rule out paranoia -- someone is officially trying to kill me.

Clark: Not just someone.

Chloe: Either way, it still doesn't look great for me.

Lana: Chloe, I'm so sorry. I can't believe I went after you like that.

Chloe: Yeah. I can't believe you got us suspended. Thankfully, Adam was there. Those were some really nice moves. What was that --kung fu, judo?

Adam: I don't know. I guess I've watched too many Jackie Chan movies.

Chloe: Well, who would've thought it would come in handy in the treacherous halls of Smallville High?

Clark: 45590D1F.JPGJust before this, did you get any weird e-mails?

Lana: Let me check. I did, but I don't remember opening it.

Clark: It sounds like the same thing happened to both of us. It's like we were being hypnotized.

Adam: It could be a subliminal message.

Chloe: Something could've been hidden in the binary codes.

Lana: How did I get snapped out of it?

Chloe: Right now I'm more concerned with what triggered the "Kill Chloe" impulse in the first place.

Clark: It's Brainwave again.

Adam: Every computer online has an I.P. address, so we should be able to track the message and the computer that it was sent from.

Clark: You can do that?

Adam: We'll see.

Chloe: If this Brainwave person wanted me dead so badly, why didn't they just send me a message saying to off myself?

Adam: The brain's hardwired to stay alive. Not even hypnotic messages 45590D5B.JPGcan override survival instincts.

Clark: What, did you just pick that up somewhere?

Adam: I was in physical rehab for months. What else is there to do but read?

Clark: Chloe, the message came from your computer.

Lana: I thought Lionel took back all of your computers. Why would anyone at Luthor Corp want to attack you?

Lex: I hate to think you wasted a trip to Metropolis, but I seriously doubt my father's trying to kill Chloe.

Clark: He was willing to put his own son in a mental institution. You know what he's capable of.

Lex: Clark, what reason would he have to go after a high school reporter from Smallville? Is there something you're not telling me? Does this have anything to do with the seven weeks of my life I can't remember?

Clark: All I know is that Lionel asked you to fire Chloe's dad. 45590D9E.JPG

Lex: Look, Clark, that was business. You know, contrary to common perception, my father isn't behind every nefarious activity in Smallville. Besides, he'd never be that circuitous.

Clark: Those e-mails came from Chloe's computer after it was packed up and shipped to Luthor Corp. Who else would have access?

Molly: Dr. Garner. How are things at Summerholt? Is everything okay?

Dr. Garner: No. I wish I could say it was. A reporter from the "Daily Planet" stopped by today. His name was Max Taylor.

Molly: About that horrible article that girl wrote?

Dr. Garner: Unfortunately. I just don't know what I'm going to do if they shut me down. Think about all the people that I've helped. Where will they go?

Molly: That's never going to happen.

Dr. Garner: I don't know. I just can't seem to get them to leave us alone. 45590DD9.JPGHow can I make them understand, Molly?

Molly: You can't. They'll never understand.

Dr. Garner: I'm just glad I was able to help you so much. But if these reporters have their way... other patients may not be so lucky.

Lana: Are you leaving?


Adam: Paroled -- good behavior.

Lana: So, are you, uh... heading back to Metropolis?

Adam: I was...sort of thinking about... staying in Smallville.

Lana: Why?

Adam: Ow. That hurt.

 45590E4A.JPG 45590E65.JPG

 Lana:  No, no. I just meant, you know after what I did at the school. Smallville just doesn't seem like the type of place you'd go to if you could..go anywhere.


 45590EB2.JPGAdam: Actually, it's about as close to a home as I have. I was hoping I could spend a little more time with a certain coffee shop owner who... just happens to have the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen.

Lana: Adam, we don't really know each other.

Adam: Wasn't that the point of me staying? What's the problem? Hmm?

Lana: No one knows martial arts without remembering where they learned it. Chloe can't even hack a computer like you can, and if you got it all from reading, then where are the books?

45590EFE.JPGAdam: Wow. Clark must've really messed with your head.

Lana: Yeah, he did. And I'm not going to let that happen again.

Adam: Look, Lana, I like you. And I've told you that. But whatever your problems are, I'm not gonna stick around to be one of them. I think you should go.

Clark: Chloe.

Chloe: Clark, don't sneak upon me like that.

Clark: Look, I talked to Lex, and they found your old computer at Luthor Corp. The hard drive is gone.

Chloe:  Including all of my e-mail addresses.

Clark: Well, he thinks this is who took it. She may be working for Lionel. Her name's Molly...

Chloe: Griggs.  Yeah, I know. And for once, the connection isn't Lionel. I interviewed her for a story I did about a month ago.

Clark: About what?

Chloe: Summerholt Neurological Institute.

Clark: Summerholt? Isn't that where Ryan used to be?

Chloe: Yeah, to study his E.S.P. That's why I started looking into the place. Apparently, he isn't the only patient 45590F52.JPGDr. Garner held against their will.

Clark: Well his methods are right out of the Mengele handbook. Why was Molly there?

Chloe: Uh, M.I.T. recruited her at 15. She was a total engineer whiz kid until she went homicidal on another student. After her breakdown, they sent her to Summerholt.

Clark: But Summerholt isn't exactly a psych ward.

Chloe: For megalo-brainiacs, it is.

Clark: Why would she want to kill you?

Chloe: Well, when I talked to her, she was pretty adamant that Dr. Garner had given her new life. I had enough ammunition in that article to shut him down in a second.

Clark: Chloe, who else knows about this article?

Chloe: Max.

Max: Chloe, I've been looking into your Summerholt story. I think you've got something here. Wait, slow down. Threats are a part of the job. But I appreciate the heads-up. You'll get used to it. 45590F86.JPGYou need something, Maureen?

[ Thud ]

Chloe: Max.?

Maureen: Aah!

Chloe: Max.?

Maureen: Aah! Max.! No! Aah! Max.!

Clark: Thanks for letting Chloe stay here, Lex.

Lex: Whatever I can do to help.

Chloe: Yeah, this is the last place anybody would look for me.

Lex: Chloe...I'm sorry about what happened to your friend at the "Daily Planet." You must've really had Garner over a barrel.

Chloe: Yeah, well, I obviously didn't know what I was getting myself into. It seems to be a nasty habit I've picked up lately.

Lex: So your theory is that... Garner has turned Molly into his own e-mail assassin, using hypnotic suggestion?

Clark: 45591084.JPGIt's not that far off a stretch. Summerholt goes from studying the brain to controlling it.

Lex: It's a pretty amazing breakthrough, if you don't consider the application.

Chloe: There's no question --when it comes to brain warping, Dr. Garner is definitely the guy.

Clark: I'm gonna talk to garner. 455910AF.JPG

Chloe: No, no, no, Clark, don't. It's too dangerous.

Clark: I'm not the one he's looking for. It'll be all right. Just don't leave the mansion. I'll call you if I find anything.

Lex: Chloe... I have my tech guys trying to track her. I'm going to go see what they've got. Make yourself at home. 

[ Door opens ]

Dr. Garner: Clark Kent. You here to abduct another one of my patients? I think you'll find security significantly increased since your last visit.

Clark: I know what you and Molly are doing.

Dr. Garner: Molly...Griggs? She left us months ago.

Clark: She's sending out hypnotic e-mails. It's not the kind of technology you pick up at radio shack.

Dr. Garner: Nor Summerholt, if that's what you're implying.

Clark: Molly's already killed one reporter who was about to expose everything you're doing here. And she's going after another. It's quite a coincidence.

Dr. Garner: Mr. Kent... this is a serious research institute. I'm not going to involve Summerholt in some imaginary high school investigation.

Clark: I don't think the police are going to see it that way.

Guard: Dr. Garner?

Dr. Garner: Cornell, could you show our friend to the door? 455910F3.JPG

[ Dialing ]

[ Telephone ringing ]

[ Ringing continues ]
Man: Centennial tower apartments. How may I direct your call?

Dr. Garner: Apartment 927, please.

[ Ringing ]

Molly: Hello?

Dr. Garner: Molly... something else has come up.

Adam: Library. That's where you'll find all the books I was reading.

Lana: I thought you'd be on your way to metropolis by now.

Adam: I was, but I didn't want to leave things the way we did. I can be a little abrupt.

Lana: That's one way of putting it. 4559113A.JPG

[ Groans ]

Adam: You are driving me nuts. I can see how strong you are, and then, for some stupid reason, you retreat into this hurt-little-girl facade. It's ridiculous.

Lana: This is your way of ending things on better terms?

Adam: People here don't say what they think. I wasn't trying to hide anything from you.

Lana: Then why are you so guarded?

Adam: You have to understand. There are patches of my life that I just can't piece back together.

Lana: And...everyone that could answer those questions is gone.

Adam: It's kind of scary. Smallville just seemed a little less terrifying than going to Metropolis on my own.

Lana: Crazy ninja girls and all? 45591171.JPG

[ Both laugh ]

Adam: Crazy ninja girls and all. I guess I've just been moving a little too fast, so I'm sorry if I read something in our friendship that wasn't there.

Lana: I think it was a little too early to tell what was there.

Adam: Yeah. I'm gonna miss my bus. Lana, I... I really hope you find a way to trust people again. Because you're a really amazing person, and... it'd be a shame not to let someone get close enough to see that.

Lana: Adam, wait. Were you serious about staying? 

Lex: I'm starting to get a complex. It seems all the women I find even remotely appealing turn out to be psychopaths.

Molly: Hmm. Birds of a feather. 455911D3.JPG

Lex: What did Garner do to you? Hmm?

Clark: Lex, what are you doing here?

Lex: My tech guy traced her.

Molly: And you would be...?

Clark: Is this what you're using to hurt my friends?

Molly: Get away from that!

Clark: Molly, you don't have to protect Garner. We know he's controlling you.

Molly: There's only one person with that ability, and you're looking at her.

Lex: You looking for this, Clark?

Molly: How'd you get that?

Lex: Birds of a feather. It wasn't Garner. You're the one who developed the program, huh? I pulled it from your disk drive.

Molly: You don't understand. You don't know what it's like to be so different -- to see things other kids can't see, to feel and to think about things they can't even imagine.

Clark: 45591218.JPGMolly, Garner's not helping you.

Molly: He made me feel normal, and never thought that could happen. If someone gave you that chance, wouldn't you protect them, too?

Lex: Clark, she sent an e-mail right before we got here. You recognize the address?

Clark: Mom.

Chloe: Mrs. Kent? Mrs. Kent, I got your call. What did Clark find out?

[ Gasping ]

Chloe: Aah!

Clark: Chloe.  Are you all right? 45594DF1.JPG

[ Coughs ]

Chloe: Clark!

Clark: Mom.

Martha: What happened?

Clark: Are you okay?

Lana: Okay, just keep an open mind. So... what do you think?

Adam: I think... Norman Bates would be right at home here.

Lana: Not exactly the tenant I had in mind.

Adam: Is that an offer?

Lana: If we clear out all this junk and paint, it could be a really cool space. I negotiated a good deal on the rent with the owner.

45594E76.JPGAdam: I guess an upside would be I wouldn't need an alarm clock. The smell of fresh coffee would wake me up in the morning.

Lana: Unless you were making it. If you stick around long enough, I might just put you to work.

Adam: I appreciate you doing this for me, but t I don't want you to do it because you feel sorry for me.

Lana: No. No, that's not what this is about. Trust me. I'm just trying to help out a friend.

Clark: New computers?

Chloe: The same old computers --new Luthor. Lex returned them to me, no strings attached. Uh, I guess he felt guilty about firing my dad.

Clark: Well, at least you're up and running.

Chloe: Sans cyber stalker.

Clark: Your soul is still intact.

Chloe: Yeah. You know, with all this stuff with Molly, there's just --there's a part of me that feels like maybe I deserved it.

Clark: No, Chloe --

Chloe: No, like it was my penance, for what I did to you.

Clark: You can't take all the blame. You went to Lionel because I pushed you away. It seems to be one of my hidden talents lately.

Chloe: It's not so hidden. 45594EC0.JPGYou know, I-I never set out to investigate you, Clark. It just -- it was so flattering that someone like that would be interested in my work.

Clark: It made you feel like you mattered.

Chloe: Yeah. And then Lionel set my dream out right in front of me, and I just... I don't know. I gave into all my worst instincts.

Clark: No, Chloe, he caught you at a weak moment, and we all have them. You found me at mine in metropolis. You didn't turn your back on me. You gave me a second chance, and I at least owe you the same.

Chloe: I'd like that. So, what do we do now? We can't just forget about everything that's happened.

Clark: Well, you have to understand there are some things about me that'll never add up. 45594EFF.JPG

[ Laughs ]

Chloe: I know that

Clark: Are you willing to stop digging?

Chloe: Yeah. I mean, I figure you'll just... tell me when you think it's right.

Clark: I'll see you tomorrow.

Chloe: Okay.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Dr. Garner: Mr. Luthor. I should've known when young Clark stopped by that you wouldn't be far behind.

Lex: Any more attempts on Chloe Sullivan's life would be... ill-advised.

Dr. Garner: Molly seems to have vanished into thin air. I don't suppose you'd know anything about that.

Lex: Molly's in the care of people who should be able to help her, not exploit her.

Dr. Garner: Lex, you're a smart man. You know that the line has to be bent now and then 45594F4D.JPGin order to make progress.

Lex: I believe there's a difference between bent and broken.

Dr. Garner: You've never been so close to making a discovery that you'd be willing to do almost anything to see it through? My work could change the way that the world views intelligence. Thought.

Lex:  I don't think your research is worth the cost of innocent lives.

Dr. Garner: And I don't think I have time for a morality lesson. Excuse me.

Lex: Chloe's article is a real page-turner. Almost worth killing over. Wouldn't you say, Doctor?

Dr. Garner: What do you want, Lex?

Lex: Your help. A few months ago, I had an unfortunate session of shock therapy that...basically erased seven weeks of my life. I want those seven weeks back.
