Clark: Lana. I didn't think anyone else was out here.
Lana: Looks like we had the same idea for cooling off.
Clark: Yeah, it's a scorcher. You know, I'll come back.
Lana: Oh, no, why? It's a big lake, there's enough room for both of us.
I'm game if you are. No peeking. Your turn Clark. I promise I won't
peek. Clark? Clark!
Lana: Don't do that. It's not funny. I always said there should be
nothing between us.
Clark: Now there's not.
Sarah: Help! Help Me!
Clark: What's wrong?
Sarah: He's here, run, run. Aaaaaaa! No! Don't let him take me!
Clark: I dug holes, I used my x-ray vision, but it's like she just
Jonathan: Was anybody else out there with you?
Clark: No, just me.
Martha: You were skinny-dipping alone?
Clark: Well I'm, it's kind of a spur of the moment kind of thing.
Jonathan: Alright son, I'll give the sheriff a call.
Clark: Maybe I should skip school and go look for her.
Martha: Clark it's not your responsibility to save everybody.
Jonathan: Besides, right now there's a surprise for you, outside.
Clark: Wow I didn't know you got a new truck.
Jonathan: It's not mine Clark, it's yours.
Clark: What? Oh my god, wait till I tell Pete.
Jonathan: Hey it's not just for fun son, we needed a new truck around
Clark: How could we afford it?
Jonathan: Well the extra money Lex gave us came in handy
Clark: Considering the source I'm surprised you used it.
Jonathan: Yeah I, I know but I finally realized that I wasn't giving him
a fair shake.
Martha: After all you've been through the past couple of months, we're
really happy to have you home.
Clark: I don't know what to say.
Jonathan: Say that you will take good care of her.
Clark: I'll take good care of her. Thanks.
Jonathan: Alright, hey you better get to school you're late already. Oh
and if Sheriff Adams finds out anything about that girl we'll let you
Clark: Okay. Lana: Hey Clark.
Clark: Lana, hey look about yesterday
Lana: Oh, it's okay.
Clark: You're not mad?
Lana: About you running off? No I had a good view when you left. So who
Clark: Some girl.
Lana: Is she okay?
Clark: I, I don't know she just kind of disappeared. I'm really sorry I
just left you, again.
Lana: No it's not like we had a date or anything. But I had fun.
Clark: So did I.
Lana: Yeah our relationship has always been about pain and angst, guess
a little levity is refreshing. Maybe after a while you'll stop torturing
yourself and realize there's no reason why we shouldn't be together.
It's okay Clark, I'm willing to wait as long as you want.
Clark: Hey, Hey wait, hey who are you? What happened? I saw you get
pulled into the ground. Well at least tell me your name.
Sara: Uh Sara, Sarah Conroy.
Clark: Okay Sara what's going on?
Sara: He's after me.
Sara: He's always after me.
Pete: Clark. Where were you?
Clark: Pete did you see that guy?
Pete: What guy?
Clark: How could you miss him? He had a big red cape on. He was standing
right there. Sara you must of...
Pete: Who's Sara?
Clark: She, She was right there.
Pete: The insanity defense, it's working. I get it.
Clark: I'm not insane
Pete: Well what do you call skipping a history exam worth fifty percent
of your grade?
Clark: That's today?
Pete: That was today. You flunked. Clark: Chloe, I need your help something came up at the lake yesterday.
Chloe: Yeah, I heard. You are referring to the blue lagoon moment with a
certain former girlfriend right?
Clark: You know about that?
Chloe: Clark this is high school everybody knows.
Clark: The only.. Did Sara Conroy tell you?
Chloe: Highly doubtful since I've never met anyone with that name.
Clark: She's a new student, I think. I saw her in the woods and I just
saw her in the hallway. She's definitely canadate for the wall of weird.
Chloe: Well that's too bad, since the wall of weird has been retired.
Clark: Chloe who did this?
Chloe: I did. It's time to leave childish pursuits behind. You're not
the only one who grew up this summer. Besides I think The Daily Planet
was starting to frown on my little obsession.
Clark: But we know these stories are true.
Chloe: Do we? People have died because of that wall.
Clark: And people have been saved too.
Chloe: I'm done chasing windmills Clark, from now on it's hard news that
could be backed up with facts. Clark: Lex. Your message sounded urgent. Something wrong?
Lex: Not really sure, having a rather strange day.
Clark: Join the club.
Lex: I was hoping you could help me with a problem Clark.
Clark: Yeah what do you need?
Lex: Would you hand me that sword?
Clark: Is this new?
Lex: Depends on your definition. It was a ceremonial weapon used by a
group of 16th century samurai warriors. The Katai, ever heard of them?
Clark: Japanese history really isn't my strong suit.
Lex: Let me give you your first lesson. Legend has it this sword was
forged in the fires of Mount Fuji, the blade could cut through anything.
The Katai never took it in the battle. They never had to, till the day
the strongest Katai turned on his own. One by one the Katai fell at his
hand. Nothing left to lose, the last of the Katai lunged at the warrior
with his sword. The blade cut him clean too. But when the warrior's
amour fell away, the Katai saw that he wasn't even human. Just like you
Clark. See I've always been honest with you but it turns out you've been
lying to me ever since the day I laid eyes on you.
Clark: No Lex I can explain!
Lex: Too Late! The irony is all you had to do was come to me Clark. I
was your friend, I would have protected your secret, I would have
protected you. But I could be trusted because I'm a Luthor
Clark: No that's not it!
Lex: I don't care! I'm going to dedicate myself to make sure the whole
world knows who Clark Kent really is. Life as you know it is over.
Clark: Lex, Lex! Clark: Mom, dad we have a big problem! Sara? What are you doing here?
Sara: Lilacs, I haven't seen lilacs in years. My favorite. My mother
used to grow them for me.
Clark: Where is your family?
Sara: Listen, please don't let him take me again.
Sara: The traveler Clark.
Clark: How do you know my name?
Traveler: Sara you cannot escape me. No matter where you hide, I will
always find you.
Sara: No please no, Clark! Clark!
Clark: Nooooooo! Martha: Clark, thank god we have been so worried.
Clark: What happened?
Martha: You fell asleep while you were studying for your history exam.
Jonathan: It was a day and a half ago son, we have been trying to wake
you ever since.
Martha: You must have been dreaming.
Clark: It was so real. I met this girl Sara Conroy, and she was in
Jonathan: Conroy? That's the name of our new next door neighbor. He has
a teenage daughter.
Clark: They moved into Lana's old house?
Jonathan: There's been a moving truck there since yesterday.
Clark: How could I dream about someone I have never even met? Jonathan: Wow somebody's sure up early.
Martha: Clark have you been up all-night?
Clark: I was kind of afraid to go to sleep. I can't get over how real
that dream was. I feel like we should check up on the Conroy's
Martha: What would you say to them that Sarah was in danger in your
Jonathan: You need to be careful Clark.
Clark: I got to be careful when I'm sleeping too.
Jonathan: You weren't just asleep son, you were out for 36 hours and
just happens to coincide with that girl moving in next door.
Clark: You think she's keeping me asleep?
Jonathan: I don't know Clark. But with all the weird things going on
around here you need to be careful. So look I'm asking you, you stay
away from the neighbors. Lana: I missed you at school the last few days.
Clark: Haven't been feeling so good.
Lana: To be honest you look a little tired, maybe you should try and get
Clark: No. Um, I'll be fine.
Lana: Okay. Well um, I brought you your homework. Mr. Blair said that
you could uh, make up your history exam as long as you have a note from
Clark: You're the best. Can I tell you something?
Clark: I had this dream and it's really freaking my out.
Lana: What was it about?
Clark: A lot of things, this girl.
Clark: No, Lana it's not like that. She needed help.
Lana: Let me guess you had to save her?
Clark: Except I couldn't. Her name's Sara and she moved into your old
Lana: When's you meet her?
Clark: That's the thing I hadn't. How could I be dreaming about her?
Lana: Well maybe if you walked me through the dream we could figure it
Clark: You don't think I'm nuts.
Lana: Clark, I think you have a lot of issues, but I do not think you
have lost your mind. Okay so where did you see her first?
Clark: Crater Lake. You were there.
Lana: Really what were we doing?
Clark: Nothing. Um, it's really hazy.
Lana: Okay. Well I have a better idea, why don't we go see Sarah in
person. Clark: Wow she seems so... Do the doctors think she'll come out of it?
Nicholas: Well there's always hope.
Lana: It must be really hard to see your daughter like this.
Nicholas: Oh Sarah's my niece. So this is your old house Lana? And
you're the boy from next door?
Clark: What exactly happened?
Nicholas: It's okay, it's no secret. It was a car accident, Sara and her
parents went off the Loeb Bridge on their way home from a soccer game.
The paramedics say that Sarah was asleep, which is probably why she
Lana: Sara's from Smallville?
Nicholas: Grandville, just over the county line.
Clark: Lilacs, those are Sarah's favorite.
Nicholas: Yes. How did you know that?
Lana: They're my favorite too. Must be kismet, living in the same house.
Clark: That's an interesting medal.
Nicholas: This? Well it's just good old St. Christopher.
Clark: The patron saint of traveler’s right?
Nicholas: Yes. Yes I say his prayer every night in hopes that Sara's
journey will end and she'll come back to us. Look I, I'm sorry you'll
have to excuse me it's um, time for Sarah's medication. Thank you for
stopping by. Lex: Dad I thought I made it clear that I back fully committed to
LuthorCorp and to you.
Lionel: Well I'm delighted to hear it. Now, what's the problem?
Lex: I've been blocked out of half the computer files I need to do my
job. Insufficient security clearance?
Lionel: Thank you Mini. These um, security measures Lex, are a necessary
evil you should know that. We have to protect out assists.
Lex: From me?
Lionel: I applaud your renewed commitment to LuthorCorp. After what
you've been through, it's remarkable.
Lex: But you think I might betray you again?
Lionel: Betray me? That's an interesting notion. Might you?
Lex: I want this to work. I want us to be a family again. You have
nothing to fear from me.
Lionel: Why have you refused to complete the psychological profile?
Lex: Come on dad, you've never believed in that psychobabble and neither
Lionel: I believe that um, personal, emotional problems are bound to
effect day to day decision making. I think that dreams can often reveal
hidden dangers, serve as a warning..
Lex: Spare me the Jungian cliff notes, dad.
Lionel: It's five sessions Lex, that's all. I thought you wanted to
reestablish our bond.
Lex: I do.
Lionel: Then do it. Prove that my total confidence in you is justified. Chloe: Clark Kent dreaming of the girl next door. Isn't it nice to know
some things never change?
Clark: Right now I'm just trying to stay awake.
Chloe: Yeah, even red bull has it's limits. Trust me, I've tested them.
Clark: I think Sara is reaching out for me to help.
Chloe: Entering your dreams to communicate?
Clark: How else would I know these details of her life, like the lilacs?
Chloe: Well there is a theory that telepathic receptivity is increased
during R.E.M. sleep. It has to do with frontal lobe activity.
Clark: My frontal lobe is acting as a beacon.
Chloe: I've never seen a case this dramatic. But we all know that your
brain is wired a little differently than the rest of ours. Add the fact
that the river where she crashed is a known source for our favorite
green stuff, and you the perfect Smallville cocktail for weirdness.
Clark: You think the meteor rocks gave her this ability?
Chloe: Well once she's in she can keep you asleep. It's certainly
explains the day and a half snore-a-thon.
Clark: I, I didn't wake up until the traveler appeared. And I think it's
Chloe: Or a manifestation of fear that she has for her uncle. Sorry, I
didn't mean to get all Freudian on you.
Clark: No. Her uncle is all powerful in her life. Why wouldn't he be in
Chloe: You're not buying the altruism angle?
Clark: My faith in human kindness is not what it used to be. You up for
a trip to the courthouse to see what public records say about Uncle
Chloe: I, I have a deadline for the Daily Planet, and shockingly a wall
of weird story doesn't take precedence in their mind.
Clark: No time for childish pursuits anymore.
Chloe: Hey, now that's not fair. You know that if I had a choice, I
would definitely be down there pulling dusty records with you.
Clark: I doubt that. It's okay, I'll grab Lana.
Chloe: Yeah, at least she can provide a constant source of caffeine. Lana: Now I know why public records are public, they're incredibly
Clark: Not all of them. Take a look at this.
Lana: Wow. Sara's parents were rich.
Clark: When they died Sara inherited everything. One guess who's in
control of the money.
Lana: Uncle Nicholas.
Clark: As long as she stays in a coma he controls the wealth.
Lana: But he still hasn't done anything wrong. I mean taking care of
your niece and living a nice life isn't exactly a smoking gun.
Clark: Then why is Sara so scared of him? I just don't get it.
Lana: Hey your tired.
Clark: I'm afraid to close my eyes.
Lana: I'll go put on another pot of coffee.
Clark: You don't have to stay.
Lana: I want to Clark. Clark: That was fast. Sara.
Clark: I must have fallen asleep.
Clark: How do you get into my dreams?
Sara: I don't know Clark I, this has never happened to me before. Just
the other day suddenly I was, I was in the woods and then at school and
then at your house. I realized what happened when you and Lana came to
Clark: You can hear us?
Sara: Yeah. It's like being in a long dark tunnel, I mean sometimes it's
open but, sometimes it's not. I tried to reach out to you. I mean, you
don't know what it's like to be locked in your own body, never any
Clark: Sara who's the traveler?
Sara: Oh we shouldn't talk about him. He'll find us.
Clark: Is it your uncle? Why Are you so afraid of him, what does he do?
Sara: I don't know. I used to be able to hear the doctors talking, and
they said I should've woken up. But every time I do just feel a little
bit better, he does something and I get sent back to a deep dark place
that's like the bottom of the ocean. I almost woke up once, that's when
he moved us here. Oh god he's here. Aaaaa, Aaaaa, Aaaaa. Lex: Interesting theory Clark.
Clark: I know it sounds crazy, but that's what happened.
Lex: Now you're saving people in your dreams too. I bet a shrink would
have a field day with that scenario.
Clark: You don't believe me?
Lex: I believe you believe it, and that's enough for me. You have to
forgive me Clark. I have a personal bias against psychotherapy.
Clark: You don't like letting people in your head.
Lex: Something like that.
Clark: Well this girl's in my head until I figure out a way to help her.
Lex: I made a few calls to Metropolis General, it's true Sarah was
supposed to wake up.
Clark: So her uncle is drugging her.
Lex: They didn't have any evidence of foul play, but they only perform
routine blood tests.
Clark: Maybe he's using a drug that's untraceable.
Lex: Clark, from all appearances the guy hasn't done anything wrong.
Clark: We both know appearances can be deceiving Lex.
Lex: Telling the cops you heard it in a dream won't get him arrested.
Clark: I appreciate your help.
Lex: Any time.
Clark: I always liked this sword. What is it some sort of uh, legendary
Lex: Hardly. It's a uh, it's a prop from my favorite Kurosawa movie.
"Throne of Blood." I bought it at an auction. Relax Clark it can't hurt
you. It's not real.
Lex: You've got to learn the difference between reality and fantasy. Get
some sleep. Nicholas: Clark. This is a pleasant surprise.
Clark: I thought I would bring Sarah some fresh flowers.
Nicholas: Come in. This is real nice of you Clark.
Clark: Would you mind if I sit with her for a while?
Nicholas: Not at all. Can I get you something to drink?
Clark: Anything with caffeine.
Nicholas: I think I might have some soda.
Sara: He's so angry.
Clark: Wait if you're here, that means I'm .... Lana: Hello?
Martha: Lana hi. Come on in.
Lana: I was uh, looking for Clark. I brought him a little pick-me-up.
Martha: Oh, well he's not back from Lex's but you welcome to wait.
Lana: Thanks. So you finally have new neighbors.
Martha: Yeah, Not as good as the old ones.
Lana: Mrs. Kent, could I ask you something?
Martha: Of course, Lana.
Lana: Do you know why Clark pushed me away?
Martha: Metropolis changed Clark. He's not the same boy he was when he
left this spring. Jonathan and I are trying to figure it out too.
Lana: I guess, I Just, I feel like if I stay in his orbit long enough
he'll finally decide to open up.
Jonathan: Martha! Come quick! It's Clark!
Martha: oh my god! Jonathan! What happened?
Jonathan: I don't know. He must've fallen asleep at the wheel.
Lana: I'll call an ambulance.
Jonathan: No, no, Lana, I think he just hit his head. He's gonna be
Martha: Well, where was he coming from? Lex's mansion is the other way.
Jonathan: Oh, Clark, I told you not to go to the Conroy's
Lana: He was worried about Sara. He kept seeing her in his dreams. This
is my fault. I took him over there.
Martha: Oh, sweetie don't blame yourself. Clark will be fine.
Lana: What about Sara?
Martha: I'm worried about her too.
Clark: Sarah, wait! Sara!
Sara: No! We have to get away from him!
Clark: You can't keep running.
Sara: I just want to be free.
Clark: You can. In the real world. You just have to face him.
Sarah: I'm afraid.
Clark: Sara, you're keeping us in this dream. I can't help you until I
wake up. I have no power.
Sara: I'm sorry, Clark. Aaaaa!
Clark: Sara! Nicholas: How did he know about this? How did he know about the lilacs?
I don't know what's going on in there, but it's gonna stop.
Lana: Don't put that needle in her!
Nicholas: How did you get in here?
Lana: We know you've been drugging Sara.
Nicholas: Really. You and your boyfriend are a little too neighborly for
your own good.
Lana: If you kill her, there's no more money.
Nicholas: Who said anything about killing her? Clark: Sara, are you okay?
Sara: I'm alright Clark. She's in trouble.
Sara: Lana. No. No...
Traveler: I warned you Sara. This is a fight you'll never win.
Sara: It's too late.
Clark: Sara, we have to save Lana.
Sara: He's too strong. You can't stop him.
Traveler: Death to all those who trespass here.
Clark: Sara! You have to help me!
Traveler: Sara, you cannot escape me. Return with me.
Clark: You're stronger than he is, Sara! You know you are!
Traveler: He cannot save you.
Clark: He did this to you! Get angry! He took six years of your life!
Traveler: I control your destiny, Sarah. Close your eyes and return to
Clark: Don't be afraid Sara!
Traveler: The more you resist, Sara, the more you will suffer. I will
not warn you again.
Clark: Mom. Lana's in trouble. Lana. Looking for this? Lionel: Lex? What's So Urgent?
Lex: I decided to do it.
Lionel: Oh,? Do what?
Lex: Meet with a psychiatrist, submit to a full battery of mental tests.
Lionel: Curious. Tell me what changed your mind.
Lex: Because I was dealing from a position of fear. If there's one thing
you could sniff out like a bloodhound, it's that.
Lionel: It's a gift, Lex. And it's useful.
Lex: I know the only way I'm gonna prove to you that I'm your rightful
heir is to deal from a position of strength. I have nothing to hide.
Lionel: That would mean a lot to me son.
Lex: I figured you're my father and you have me best interest at heart.
Lionel: Who's the good doctor?
Lex: Claire Foster.
Lionel: Oh, highly credentialed. She's published a couple books. She'll
be able to help you work through any problems.
Lex: That island didn't make me crazy dad.
Lionel: Oh, crazy, no. Of course not. But it will be good to have that
in writing, won't it? Lex. When you're rich, you're not crazy. You're
eccentric. Clark: Hi, Sara, How are you doing?
Clark: I brought you some fresh lilacs. I know they're your favorite.
Sara: It's Clark, isn't it?
Clark: I didn't think you'd remember me.
Sara: Yeah. We've been through so much together even though we haven't
officially met. I, I still don't know how I got in your dreams.
Clark: The important thing is you're safe. And you're awake.
Sara: You're obviously a special guy. I saw some of the thing you're
able to do.
Clark: Well, in our dreams we're all super.
Sara: I just, I know it's none of my business, I know dreams are usually
Clark: No, um... I'm curious to hear your perspective. What'd you see?
Sara: Someone who's clearly in love, but who resists it, Lana, right?
Clark take it from someone who's been trapped for six years. If you love
her that much, don't push her away.
Clark: It's a long and complicated story, Sarah.
Sara: I only know what I saw. I may have been there, but Lana's the girl
of your dreams. Lana: Burning the midnight oil?
Clark: I finally got some sleep. My makeup history exam is tomorrow. How
are you feeling?
Lana: Pretty stupid.
Clark: Why? What you did was really brave. You saved Sara's life.
Lana: Yeah, and it almost cost me mine. I was lucky you got there.
Clark: You believed in me when I thought I was losing my mind. It was
the least I could do.
Lana: So I finally met Sara. All she could talk about was you. I told
her I would love to switch places, you know, find out what goes on
inside your head.
Clark: It's not that exciting.
Lana: Still, you know, maybe it will explain why things between us...
Clark: Lana, if I had the answers in here, you'd be the first to know.
Lana: It's just that the last few days, I've felt like the girl next
door again. It was nice.
Clark: Even though it almost got you killed? Lana. you'll always be the
girl next door.
Lana: So, um, any chance we could do something this weekend? You know,
Clark: What'd you have in mind?
Lana: Well, it's been like an oven outside, so I was thinking we could
go swimming at Crater Lake.
Clark: Yeah, I really don't think skinny-dipping is a good idea.
Lana: Who said anything about skinny-dipping? Maybe in your dreams,
