First aired October
Clark: Looks like the old man's been working out!
Jonathan: Jor-El and I have an understanding. I'm taking you home.
Clark: I don't care what he's done to you. You're not taking me anywhere.
Jonathan: You don't realize how dangerous you are when you're wearing
Clark: It's not the ring. I was born that way. You just can't accept it.
Jonathan: What in the hell did Jor-El do to you, Clark?
Clark: He made sure I'd never forget who my real father is.
Jonathan: Go on. Do it. If I could raise a son that could kill, then
Clark: Aaaah! Dad. Dad? Dad.
Martha: Oh, Clark.
Clark: Mom. I am so sorry, Mom, for everything, for the baby.
Martha: We never blamed you. Oh, my God!
Martha: What happened?
Clark: Whatever Jor-El did to him must've been too much for his body to
Jonathan: The important thing is that Clark is back home with us now.
Lex: Abraham threw Isaac on the pyre to prove his faith to God. What
was your excuse?
Lex: Disappointed I'm not basking in the fires of hell?
Lionel: Lex. Put the gun down.
Lex: Sorry I screwed up your plan.
Lionel: Why would I murder my own flesh and blood? Son, you're not
Lex: Actually I'm feeling more like myself than ever. What the hell did
you do with Helen?
Lionel: She's living very comfortably in your mansion. Why don't you ask
Lex: She's alive?
Lionel: Yes. And she told a truly harrowing tale of survival. It left you
quite the posthumous hero.
Lionel's voice: She said the pilot took your money and bailed out.
Helen: Lex, we're going down!
Lex: There must be parachutes! There's only one! Come on!
Helen: I'm not going without you!
Lex: Count to three and pull. They'll send a rescue plane for you. I love
you. Now go.
Lionel: Quite a story, don't you think? A sacrificial death that would
make every father proud. But something tells me that's not what really
happened, Lex. I warned you not to trust her, Lex.
Lex: Don't turn this on Helen! You were the one who had my name carved
into a tombstone!
Lionel: I had search parties scouring half the world for you.
Lex: Looks like you picked the wrong half.
Lionel: What would I have to gain from your death? Lex, as your widow,
Helen just became one of the richest women in the world.
Lex: Helen never cared about the money.
Lionel: Oh, but she did, Lex. Ask her what happened to the vial with the
blood sample after you returned it to her.
Clark: Dad, I just don't get it. Why would Jor-El help you bring me back
when he's the one who wanted me to leave? You made a deal with him, didn't
Jonathan: Clark, the most important thing right now is that my son
has his life back.
Clark: I'm not sure I want it back. And being Kal-El, I could just do
whatever I wanted. It was like this huge weight had been lifted off me.
Jonathan: Look, I'm not saying that staying is going to solve all your
problems, but at least this way we can face it together as a family.
Clark: I wish it were that easy.
Jonathan: What is that?
Clark: I don't know. This guy Morgan Edge hired me to steel it.
Jonathan: Clark, you gotta take this thing back.
Clark: Dad. I stole it from Lionel Luthor.
Jonathan: We better find out exactly what it is we're dealing with.
Clark: That's my blood isn't it?
Jonathan: It's your blood.
Clark: Do you think Lionel knows?
Jonathan: Helen told me she never labeled it before somebody stole it
from her office.
Clark: Why would Lionel want my blood?
Jonathan: Doesn't matter now.
Clark: I'm starting to wonder what he really knows about me.
Jonathan: Clark, we've managed to stay one step ahead of Lionel Luthor so
far. Why don't you just focus on people closer to home, okay?
Morgan: I like scotch. What's this?
Lionel: It's our old special. A suicide. I hope your tastes haven't
Morgan: Nothing ever changes, Lionel. Not even when you dress it up in a
designer suit or a penthouse office.
Lionel: Yeah, it's sad the same thing can't be said about friendship. You
know, I kind of suspected you had an inside contact, but, uh, I got to hand
it to you. Very creative.
Lionel: Buying off my daughter-in-law. That's even low for you Morgan.
We see the picture is of Morgan and Helen. In the photo, Morgan is
pulling an envelope from his jacket.
Morgan: Oh, well...
Lionel: All right, all right, let me guess, let me guess. The idea was to
steal the vial and sell it back to me at a healthy markup, right?
Morgan: What are you going to do, have me charged with breaking and
Lionel: Why settle for breaking and entering? I can have you put away for
Morgan: Oh, I'd be careful, Lionel. You've got a lot further to fall.
Lionel: Yeah, but I'm the one who's got the evidence. And remember, the
statute of limitations on murder never runs out. You got 24 hours to get
that vial back to me.
Lana: Hi? I don't even know what to say to that, Clark.
Lana doesn't turn to face him and they share an awkward pause.
Clark: I'm sorry. The way I acted in Metropolis . . . I really messed
Lana: I keep telling myself that it wasn't you, but then I think
back on all the things that have happened and I realize that I don't know
who you really are.
Clark: I know you need an explanation.
Lana: No, I don't. You warned me there were things about you that I
wouldn't understand. I guess I just didn't want to believe it.
Clark: I was protecting you.
Lana: From what? That's the part I can't figure out because, Clark, the
only thing that keeps hurting me is you. After everything you said before
you left... Did you even miss me?
Clark: I missed you every second. But I can't keep doing this to
Lana: Then don't.
Clark: Lana, I'm not sure if I'm even gonna stay.
Lana: Well, when you decide, let me know.
Lex: Home sweet home.
Helen: Lex . . . Oh, thank God.
Lex: Trust me, I've done that already. He seems to be the only one on my
Helen: But the rescue was called off. How--
Lex: A small fishing boat spotted the smoke from my fire.
Helen: I never gave up hoping.
Lex: Just in case, it was certainly generous of you to make me out to be
Helen: I'm so sorry, Lex. I shouldn't have lied to everyone.
Lex: So why did you?
Helen: I just couldn't face what really happened up there.
Helen's voice: I woke up to find the pilot parachuting from the plane,
just like I told everyone. But I couldn't wake you.
Helen: Lex! Lex! Lex!
Helen's voice: I realized you drank a whole glass of champagne and I only
had a sip. You must've been drugged. The plane was going down and I
Helen's voice: You always think that you're gonna be brave in a situation
like that, but when it really happens, I guess your survival instincts kick
Lex: Survival of the fittest. I guess you really are a Luthor now.
Helen: You don't believe me?
Lex: I know you worked for my father. After I gave you the blood back and
you apologized, you turned around and sold it to him.
Helen: Your father said if I gave him the blood he'd leave us alone
forever. He's playing us against each other.
Lex: We seem to do a good job of that on our own.
Helen: If you want to annul this marriage, I'll get out of your life.
[She starts to leave, then stops] But for what it's worth, I do love you.
Morgan: I must admit, this is the last place I expected you to show up.
Clark: How'd you find me?
Morgan: Where's my package?
Clark: I don't have it.
Morgan: I wonder if the cops want to know where you are.
Clark: I don't think you heard me! The package is gone!
Luthor doesn't know who took it so forget about it!
Driver: Take your hands off of him right now! I said now!
Clark: Take your sorry ass down the road back to Metropolis. I don't want
to see you in Smallville again. Ever.
Chloe: Kinda far from your new 'hood, aren't you, Clark?
Clark: I just came to say thank you.
Chloe: Oh, it's one of those days, because I can never tell with you,
whether you're gonna walk in and it's gonna be an apology or an accusation.
Clark: Chloe, I gave you absolutely no reason to stand by me. But you
knew where I was all summer and didn't tell anyone.
Chloe: Yeah, well, that's what friends do for each other, Clark. Talk to
Clark sits down at the desk.
Clark: I tried.
Chloe: That's it? After two years of nonstop Lana lusting, that's
the best you can do? Come on.
Clark: I think it's for the best.
Chloe: You're not staying, are you.
Clark: I haven't made up my mind yet.
Chloe: You can't keep running away, Clark. We all do things we regret.
Sometimes you have to stop and face your demons.
Lex: Am I too early for the farm auction?
Clark turns around.
Lex: Three months on a deserted island was almost worth it to see the
look on your face right now.
Clark: Aw, man! Aw, Lex, we thought you died.
Lex: Well, apparently fate has bigger plans for me. I heard about the
farm. Anything I can do?
Clark: No, Lex, you know my dad. It's good to see you. What happened?
Lex: Something I didn't know I was capable of. It's ironic. In the most
remote solitude I still managed to find an enemy. I suppose I was just
hallucinating from malaria, but the enemy I found was real. I got a good
look at myself, or at least the part I've always tried to ignore.
Clark: Lex, I guess we all got to take a look at our dark side sooner or
Lex: The problem is if you stare at it long enough, it can get hard to
tell the two sides apart.
Chloe: Hey! You can't keep avoiding me, Lana.
Lana: I'm not avoiding you. I had to work late last night and I had
errands to run this morning.
Chloe: At 5:30 in the morning?
Lana: You want to cut the pretenses? Fine. You lied to me about Clark.
Chloe: Something we have in common then.
Lana: I have apologized to you a hundred times for not telling you about
Clark and me.
Chloe: You're right and I'm over it. So let me say I'm sorry and we can
call it even.
Lana: Chloe, this is so much bigger than me. How could you let everyone
worry like that?
Chloe: Because the more pressure I put on him, the more he pulled away. I
mean, you saw him, Lana. He wasn't exactly the charming flannel king we all
know and love. It was like he was a...
Lana: A different person.
Chloe: Yeah. Let's face it, Lana. Clark has more issues than "Rolling
Stone." Look, I know what I did was wrong, and as much as I hate to admit
it, it felt really good being the person he confided in again.
Lana: Clark's always been more comfortable talking to you.
Chloe: It's because he's not in love with me.
Lex: That didn't take long.
Helen: I thought I'd leave for a while, give you some space to think
Helen reaches for her bags. Lex stops her and takes her hand.
Lex: Hey. I've had more than enough space the last few months. I'd rather
share it with someone. I thought we can give the honeymoon a second
Helen: You don't let go of things, Lex. I know you.
Lex: Yes, you do. You and I understand each other because we're similar
creatures. We've both done our share of maneuvering. In a twisted way, I
guess that's why we're perfect for each other.
Helen: I want to be with you, Lex. But you know your father will never
leave us alone.
Lex: Don't worry. I have a feeling he won't be interfering in our lives
Clark: Hey, Mom! Dad!
Morgan: Yes, Kal.
Clark: Didn't I tell you not to ever come back here?
Morgan: I wanted to meet the parents. Nice people.
Morgan: I wouldn't do that if I were you.
Jonathan: Clark! Son. Don't do anything. It's okay.
Morgan: I know you're quick. But you can't get to both of them at the
Clark: I don't have what your looking for.
Morgan: Do you want me to explain that to Lionel Luthor?
Jonathan: No, Clark--
Clark: Wait. Stop!
Morgan: What the hell is this?
Clark: It's what you're looking for.
Morgan: It better be.
Lionel: Mmm! Extraordinary how the smell of creosote and algae can take
you back 30 years, isn't it?
Morgan: A lot of memories buried here.
Lionel: Yeah, where they belong. Don't tell me I've come all the way out
here for nothing.
Lionel: Intriguing presentation.
Morgan: It's not the packaging that is important. Unless you don't trust
Lionel: Trust you? Trust has never had anything to do with our
Woman: It's identical.
Morgan: If I didn't know any better, I'd think the blood was liquid gold.
I can't imagine what the real source would be worth to you.
Lionel: Unfortunately the source is a mystery to me. My contact turned
out to be, uh, let's say uncooperative.
Morgan: They were holding out on you. What if I were to tell you
that this is not the sample I stole? I got this straight from the
The gunman's cell phone rings. He answers it.
Man: Yeah? Yes, sir. That was Edge. He wants us to bring the kid to
Lana: Do you know where the Kents are?
Man: Move it!
Martha: Lana. Please leave her out of this. Lana...
Lex: To a second chance.
Helen: You're not drinking?
Lex: Well, I sort of lost my taste for champagne. Did you sleep well last
Helen: The first good night's sleep I've had since the accident.
Lex: I'm glad. 'Cause it is our honeymoon and I'd hate for you to doze
off. You never know, you might wake up to find me gone.
Helen: Lex, that's not funny.
Lex: I guess you had to be there. You know what? I am gonna have a drink.
Helen: What's going on?
Lex: I was so relieved when you forgave me for stealing the blood
that I failed to realize no rational person would have done that.
Helen: I did it because I love you. You still think I tried to kill
you? Why can't you see what's right in front of your eyes? It was your
father's plane. He's always been threatened by you.
Lex: You're right. But, you see, I haven't been able to stop thinking
about the accident and there is something that's been right in front of my
eyes. If my father wanted me dead, he wouldn't have failed.
Helen: You're experiencing residual delusions. It's a common after effect
of the malaria.
Lex: I'm afraid I've been delusional a lot longer than three months. But
I think I have a pretty clear picture of things now.
Lex's voice: You had my father's pilot killed and snuck your own on
board. You had the pilot touch down on a small island, drop you off.
You paid him a prearranged sum to take the plane up again with me still
inside. He flew away far enough to cover your tracks, and then he took
a little skydive. I'm guessing he had a pretty ugly surprise when he
tried to open his parachute.
Lex: Believe me, I prefer your version where I'm the gallant hero, but
that's not giving you enough credit, is it?
Helen: Lex, you're scaring me.
Lex: The area where we crashed was unreachable given the amount of fuel
we started with. I checked all the islands in the vicinity. You touched down
on St. Croix at 7:59 that night.
Helen: You know what the most twisted part of all this is? The reason you
didn't get a bullet in your head that day was because I really did fall in
love with you. But don't worry. I learn from my mistakes.
Lex: Go ahead. I've become quite adept at cheating death. In fact,
I have no doubt that I'll rise from the ashes again.
Lionel: I hate mysteries. Or did you forget that?
Morgan: You're gonna like this one.
Lionel: This had better be worth it, Morgan.
Lionel: You set me up. You set me up!
Morgan: Lionel! I don't know what happened!
Lionel: You set me up! There was nobody in that truck! There was nobody
in that truck!
Bodyguard #1: Let's get out of here!
Lionel: Where's Morgan?
Bodyguard #1: Let's go, Mr. Luthor!
Lionel: Where's Morgan?
Bodyguard #1: I've got to get you out of here!
Lionel: Where is he?! Where's Morgan?
Bodyguard #1: Go! Go! Go!
Lionel: Well done, Lex. Well done.
Lionel: That was a Machiavellian maneuver worthy of a Luthor.
Lex: I appreciate the kudos, but I don't know what you're talking about.
Lionel: Oh, come on, Lex. Do you think I'd neglect to put surveillance on
Lionel: Poor Helen. Should we be sending out a search party for her?
Lex: I have someone on it. But if Helen survives, I doubt anyone will
find her until she wants them to.
Lionel: You know, Lex, I, uh, never imagined that you would fall in love
with Helen. I'm sorry it happened, son, but don't be too hard on yourself.
Lex: You know the sick thing? Of all people, I knew you'd
Lionel: I do. Survival is what matters in life.
Lex: I know that now. If I was anybody else's son I would have died
on that island. All the tests you put me through . . . made me a survivor.
If I keep my pride in check I know there's more to learn from you. I was
hoping your offer still stands to run LuthorCorp together.
Lionel: I, um, I-I don't want you making a hasty decision, Lex. You've
just been through an incredibly traumatic ordeal.
Lex: No. I've learned to trust my instincts.
Lionel: Good to have you back . . . Son.
Jonathan: It just won't seem right calling any other place home.
Clark: It's not the place that makes the home, Dad.
Martha: Does that mean you're coming with us?
Clark: I've kind of closed the door on my time in Metropolis. I
called the police and told them where the money is that I stole. I guess you
can't run away from the problem when the real problem is in your blood.
Jonathan: Hey. Clark, don't be so hard on yourself.
Martha: Hi, Lex.
Clark: Hey, Lex, you missed the garage sale, but we have tons of these
macrame plant holders left.
Lex: Thanks, Clark, but, um, I'm actually doing my own share of
purging around the mansion.
Martha: You bought our farm?
Lex: I put your names in the deed.
Jonathan: We can't accept this.
Lex: There's nothing to accept but my gratitude.
Lex: After the plane went down, I made my way into one of the broken
wings. This compass, your wedding present, guided me to safe harbor.
The least I can do is help you keep your farm.
Jonathan: We will find a way to pay you back.
Lex: I'm not worried about that, Mr. Kent. If it's not too presumptuous,
I hope you'll just consider me part of the family.
Clark: Hey, Lana.
Lana: Glad your parents are getting a second chance.
Clark: Yeah, I, uh, think I'll be earning every cent of my allowance this
Lana: So you're staying?
Clark: I think I want to try to put all the stuff that happened in
Metropolis behind me.
Lana: It'd probably be a good idea if we put a lot of things behind us.
Clark: I was just thinking that too.
Lana: Clark, I know there are things about you that you try to shield me
from, but you don't have to protect me anymore. Whatever it is, I can
handle it. I really want to know you.
Clark: Look, um, Lana . . . The way you looked at me in Metropolis, you
were, uh, you were disgusted.
Lana: No, I was confused. You can't blame me for that.
Clark: I don't blame you. But I can't stand for you to ever look at me
that way again.
Lana: You weren't yourself.
Clark: Yes, I was. Lana, I chose to let that part of me out, and it's
always gonna be there. Trust me, you don't want to know me the way you think
Lana: Clark, that's my decision to make.
Clark: Lana, I'm sorry. I wanted this so much. All last year I tried so
hard to be the right guy for you. But I'm not. This'll never work.
Lana: Clark, you never had to try.
