Max Taylor: Not even a good-bye?
[ 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
Maureen: Max, your wife's called three times about dinner.
right. Tell her I'm on my way. Seriously, if there's anything I can ever
Chloe: Actually...it'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: You...you work in the tech
Molly: Would you rather have a Playstation-addicted dork wearing a
"Star Wars" T-shirt? Molly.
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.
know, I've only been back a few weeks, but I'm surprised I haven't seen
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. Are 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
stopped by. Didn't leave a name.
Chloe: Thanks, Pete.

Clark: The last thing I remember, I was in the library. I was
working on my history paper.
Adams: 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
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
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?
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?
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.
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
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
Lana: Oh, just everything.
Adam: It was interesting meeting Clark.
Lana: We're just
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
Chloe: If you're looking for signs of tampering, . There's nothing wrong I asked
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
"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, became a motorcycle riding
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
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"?
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?
[ PDA beeps ]
Chloe: Lana. Hey, I've been looking for you. Lana, what are
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: Just before this, did you get
any weird e-mails?
Lana: Let me check. I did, but I don't remember
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
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 can 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
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
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
life I can't remember?
Clark: All I know is that Lionel asked you to fire Chloe's dad.
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
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
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
all the people that I've helped. Where will they go?
Molly: That's never going
Dr. Garner: I don't know. I just can't seem to get them to leave us
alone. How can I make them understand,
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.
Adam: Ow. That hurt.
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.
Adam: 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?
Adam: 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.
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
Apparently, he isn't the only patient Dr. Garner held against their
Clark: Well his methods are right out of the Mengele handbook. Why
Chloe: Uh, M.I.T. recruited her at 15. She was a total engineer whiz
until she went homicidal on another student. After her breakdown, they
sent her to Summerholt.
Clark: But Summerholt isn't exactly a psych ward.
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
Clark: Chloe, who else knows about this article?
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. You need something, Maureen?
[ Thud ]
Maureen: Aah! Max.! No! Aah! Max.!
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
Lex: So your theory is that... Garner has turned Molly into his own
e-mail assassin, using hypnotic suggestion?
Clark: It's not that far off a
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
Clark: I'm gonna talk to garner.
Chloe: No, no, no, Clark, don't. It's too
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
Clark: I don't think the police are going to see it that
Guard: Dr. Garner?
Dr. Garner: Cornell, could you show our friend to the door?
[ Dialing ]
[ Telephone ringing ]
[ Ringing continues ]
Man: Centennial tower apartments. How may I
direct your call?
Dr. Garner: Apartment 927, please.
[ Ringing ]
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

Adam: You are driving me nuts. I can see how strong you are, and
some stupid reason, you retreat into this hurt-little-girl facade. It's
Lana: This is your way of ending things on better terms?
here don't say what they think. I wasn't trying to hide anything from
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.
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?
[ 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
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.
Birds of a feather.
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
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
only one person with that ability, and you're looking at her.
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: Molly, Garner's not helping
Molly: He made me feel normal, and never thought that could happen.
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?
Chloe: Mrs. Kent? Mrs. Kent, I got your call. What did Clark find
[ Gasping ]
Clark: Chloe. Are you all right?
[ Coughs ]
Martha: What happened?
Clark: Are you
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
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
Adam: 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
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
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. You 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
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.
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
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
[ 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
[ 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...
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
Dr. Garner: Lex, you're a smart man. You know that the line has to
be bent now
and then in order to make progress.
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?

that...basically erased seven weeks of my life. I want those seven
