Mr. Woodruff: Mr. Luthor --
Lionel: He's my son.
Lex: [ Singing quietly ]
Lex: ...Little baby, don't say a word. I'm gonna buy you
a mockingbird. And if that mockingbird won't sing , I'm gonna buy you a diamond ring.
Lex: Hush, little baby...
Lionel: Lex! If this is an attempt to get yourself
expelled, it's not gonna work.
Lex: Shh. You'll wake the baby.
Lionel: Lex, Julian's
Lex: He's right here. I found him inside of my dorm, crying. I
I'd never let anyone hurt him again.
Lionel: Julian is dead, Lex. We both know
why. You have to come to terms with that. Now!
Lex: No! Leave us alone!
No, Lex,what are you doing?
Lex: Just go home!
Lionel: Lex! Come down off that

Clark: He is. But when your heart's been

Lana: No. No, I guess they don't.
Clark: But I'm sure you didn't come all this way
just to admire my stall-mucking abilities.
Lana: I think there's something
wrong with Lex. I was dropping off the Talon payroll, and I found him
out on the ledge, screaming for
someone named Julian. What is it, Clark?
Clark: Julian was the name of Lex's
baby brother. He died of sids when Lex was a kid. Did he give you any
kind of explanation?
Lana: No. He shrugged it off
as a bad dream.
Clark: The last
time Lex had a breakdown, I found him over there, singing a lullaby to
blanket he thought was Julian.
Lana: Well, maybe he's had a relapse.

Lana: Oh, Clark, he's
Clark: Lana, the last time Lex
went off the deep end, you got
trampled by a horse.
Lana: Lex didn't mean to hurt me.
Clark: But he did,and I
promised myself I wouldn't let that happen again.
I'll talk to him.
Lex: Well, tell him I'm on my way

schedule for the rest of the afternoon. Lana told you about my

her running to you.

that's what you mean. I just indulged in a little harmless

could've killed yourself.

Lex: According to my
doctors, I'm cured. But apparently, a
clean bill of
health isn't good enough for Clark Kent. I can take care of myself.
Lex: These nightmares are
becoming more frequent.
Dr. Garner: They're not nightmares, Lex. They're spontaneous
Lex: Look, Dr. Garner, whatever you call them,
they're starting to impact my waking life.
Dr. Garner: The electro shock therapy
atrophied this part of your brain. These memories are the
equivalent of a
muscle spasm. They indicate that the treatment's working.
Lex: Doctor, I
didn't come to you to relive repressed childhood traumas.
Dr. Garner: If you're
concerned, we can stop at any time. The choice is yours. Just
relax, Lex. Close your eyes, and open the door to
your mind. Think about your father. Take us back to where
we left off. Where are
Lex: My 12th birthday party.
Lionel: Lex? I'm, um, I'm sorry,
son, that your friends didn't get to see the beautiful party that your
mother planned for you.
Lex: I told you nobody would come. Everybody hates me.
Lionel: That's not true. Lex.. Lex.. They're jealous, Lex. You're
a Luthor, and
you're -- you're -- you're special, and... it's always going to be
difficult for others to accept that. I, um... lex. Your

She seemed so sad.

she'll be as excited as we are. Here.
[ Chuckles ]
Lex: It's just an old box.
Lionel: No, no, it's much more than that.
This box was... forged from the armor of St. George.
Lex: The dragon slayer?
Lionel: That's right. According to the legend, St. George was, uh,
particularly fierce dragon. The battle between them raged on for days,
and St. George was losing his strength. And his faith. So he took a
piece of broken armor, and he made it into this box. Inside it, he put
his doubts and his fears... and he then he went out to face the dragon
Lex: Without any armor?
Lionel: Yeah. But when the dragon saw St. George
coming to do battle with him again, it hesitated and drew back.
And in that moment, St. George
plunged his sword into the dragon's heart, and it fell dead. So

put them in here in this box. And then you lock it. Huh? You'll

Clark: What are you doing with
Dr. Garner, Lex?
Lex: I thought I told
you to stay out of this.
Clark: Lex, you know what he did to Molly. And to Ryan.
Lex, he's dangerous.
Lex: I really don't have to explain myself to you, Clark.
Clark: Yes, you do, Lex, because I can't understand why my best
friend keeps lying to me.
Lex: What if you lost seven weeks of your life?
Clark: That's what this is about.
Lex: Clark, if I could retrieve those memories, they would give me the
answers to the questions that have been plaguing me.
Clark: But Dr. Garner
knows no boundaries, Lex. If you get caught up in his
research, it could kill you.
Lex: I don't care. I'm going to remember
Lionel: When I got your call, I
was...shocked. I, uh, couldn't
imagine why you would want to see me.
Clark: Lex is using a highly experimental
procedure at Summerholt Institute. He's trying to retrieve the
he forgot. Mr. Luthor, you're the only one powerful enough to
shut Summerholt down.
Lionel: Well, I'm flattered by your rather naive view of my
business prowess, but, uh... why do you think I would resort to
like a thug?
Clark: Because I don't think you really want Lex to remember what he forgot.
Lionel: No one cares
more about Lex's mental health than I do, Clark, but it's not
prerogative to stop him from regaining those lost memories.
Clark: Even if he
uncovers the truth about his grandparent's death?
Lionel: You know, Clark, I
always thought your parents' corn-fed hokum made you weak, but, uh,
clearly, I have underestimated your dark side.

Because so far it's been very illuminating.

Lionel: Would you, uh, would you get something to clean that

Mary: Yes, Mr. Luthor.

Lillian: I don't want to hold him.

unnatural for a mother not to want to bond with her child. Please...I
will not let you inflict psychological scars on my children.
Lillian: That's why
they have you, Lionel.
Lionel: No, you don't mean that, Lillian.
Lillian: I told you I
didn't want any more children. I see how
you treat Alexander,
chipping away at his spirit.
Lionel: Because you have made him weak.
Lillian: You're going
to pit these boys against each other.
Lillian: Make them fight for your
affection. I won't let you turn them into monsters. I want

time alone with your son. Lex? Lex? What -- wha-- Lex! Lex, what

talking. You went into a catatonic state, and... I'll call a doctor.
Lex: Don't bother.I'm fine, I'm fine.
Lionel: This is a side effect of your
treatment, isn't it? You're playing with fire, son.
Lex: Stop it! You only
care about preventing me from getting back those seven weeks.
Lionel: No. I've
got nothing to hide from you, Lex. You spend too much time living
past. You've got to start looking to the future.
Lex: Get out.

us through anything.
Lionel: I miss your sage advice, Martha. There's always a
job waiting for you if you ever want to come back to Luthor Corp. Um,
thank you, Clark, for letting me know what Lex has been up to.
Unfortunately, our collective meddling has convinced him to accelerate
the whole process.
Clark: Wait, he could seriously hurt himself.

Dr. Garner: How the
hell did you get in here? I'm calling security.

experiments, his father's going to have him institutionalized again.

more interesting project. I want us to begin studying Clark

to speak with him personally.

Lex: (Disbelieving.) Thank you.
[ Cellular phone rings ]

Lex: At Summerholt?
why Dr. Garner canceled my session?
Lionel: I don't have time for this now, Lex.
Lex: Then you'd better make time. Because my treatment worked. I
Lionel: Where are you?
Lex: You know where I am, dad.
Lionel: I have to solve a
problem. Wait till I get back.
Dr. Garner: Lower him into the tank. I'm not
waiting for anyone. Clark, I need you to relax. Take me back to your
earliest memory. Where did you come from?
Jor-El: Put him inside, Lara.
Our time has passed. The hourglass is empty.
Lara: What if they don't
Jor-El: Lara, his destiny is set. As is
Lara: Goodbye, my sweet Kal-El.
Clark: Lara! Lara! Lara!
Dr. Garner: Who's Lara, Clark? Why
isn't he responding?
Lab Technician: I'm not sure, Doctor, but he's having some sort of
reaction to the solution.
Lab Technician: We need to pull him out!
Dr. Garner: No. He hasn't
told us what we want.
Lionel: Lex? Lex, what's so urgent that you needed
to call me out of a meeting? What's the problem, son?
Lex: I don't know, dad.
The fact that you co-opted Dr. Garner tells me that you really are

Lionel: I was only there at Summerholt, Lex, because... I was
concerned about you. And Clark. I was as shocked as you
were to find out
that Dr. Garner was holding him there against his will.
Lex: In yesterday's
melee, I didn't get a chance to tell you about a repressed memory I

Lex: Don't worry, dad. It wasn't about those seven weeks.
It was about Julian.
Lionel: Yes, well, we, uh, put that tragedy behind us years
ago, didn't we?

Lionel: Lex, I understand that you need to,
uh, excuse your behavior, but I, uh... I saw you, Lex I saw you

Lex: I don't blame her. I blame you.
Lionel: What are you talking about? Your mother loved
Julian. She would never--she wasn't capable of mudering her own
child. She loved him.
Lex: Loved him
so much she couldn't bear the thought of subjecting him to you
particular brand of parenting.
Lionel: All right, Lex. Why would you take the blame for your
Lex: Because I was your sole remaining heir, dad. I knew you
wouldn't let anything happen to me. But mom...she would have been the
lamb to the slaughter.

Lionel: Things...would've been...so different between us.

Clark: Lara...is my biological mother's real name.

I was in the tank, I saw my earliest memory. She was putting me in the
ship. Her only fear was that no one would love me.
