Lex and Clark

Provided by Suzanne
Proofread by Deanna

Nurse: All right, rich boy, there you go. Come on. Next. 454F9AF8.JPG

[ Coughs ]

Van Mc Nutly: Look who it is. Hiya, freak!

Orderly: Back off! Back off!

Van Mc Nutly: You're the one that should be in here! You're the one that should be in here! They should lock you up, you freak!

Eric Summers: Hey, Kent. It's me -- Eric. Been struck by lightning lately?

Ian Randall: Good to see you, Clark tell my two favorite ex-girlfriends I said hello.

Orderly: Keep moving, Ian.

Orderly: Jeez, kid, you seem to know a lot of people in here.

Clark: Where's Lex?

Orderly: You got 10 minutes.

Clark: Lex?

Lex: Clark, I was wondering if I'd ever see you again.

Clark: I've been trying to visit you for the last month. The doctors said you weren't ready to see anyone. 454F9B57.JPGAre you okay?

Lex: I know your secret. Don't worry. I haven't said a word to anyone. I need you to get me out of here. I've seen what you can do. The car hit you at 60 miles an hour, and you tossed it like a toy. Breaking me out is not going to be too much of a challenge.

Clark: Lex, I want to --

Lex: Then do it, Clark. My father's never going to let me out. You're my friend. Please, Clark. Don't let me rot in this cesspool.

Clark: I'm sorry.

Lex: Aaah!

Orderly: Hey! Hey!

Lex: Bastard! I'll never forgive you for this, Clark! Never! Never!!

Clark: I've never seen Lex so angry with me. It's like he just went...

Jonathan: Crazy?

Martha: Well, you can't take it personally, Clark.

Clark: It's hard not to. He asked me to break him out.

Jonathan: You said no, didn't you?

Clark: Yeah.

Jonathan: That's good.

Clark: Yeah, it's great.

Clark: He just broke himself out 454F9CF6.JPGand injured two guards along the way.

Clark: He doesn't belong in there.

Clark: He's being drugged.

Martha: Well, we don't know that for sure. This isn't his first brush with mental illness.

Clark: Well, Lionel's never going to let him out. I'm his only chance.

Jonathan: Clark, you can't just break somebody out of a state institution. Then you would go to jail, and Lex would be out there, a fugitive, with your secret on the tip of his tongue.

Clark: Pete knows my secret, and that's turned out okay. 454F9D0E.JPG

Jonathan: Lex is different. Look, Clark, I'm not saying that you should put your secret above Lex's well-being. I just think you should stay out of this one, that's all.

Clark: Dad --

Jonathan: Clark, you don't know everything that's going on here. If you get in involved -- it could just get worse.

Martha: You know, you've got another friend in a hospital that you haven't visited.

Clark: Lana doesn't really want to see me right now.

Martha: She was in shock, Clark. She didn't mean what she said.

Clark: Except she's right. 454F9D3C.JPGAll I've done is put her in danger. She's better off without me.

Martha: What about you? Are you better off? You know, you can save the whole world, Clark. But you got to take care of your own heart, too. Go see her.

Therapist: Good, Lana. One more step... okay. Okay, that's enough for today. That goes for you, too, Adam. 454F9D63.JPG

[ Groans ] 

Adam: I know my limit

Therapist: If you over do it, you'll undo all your hard work.

Adam: If I listened to people like you, I'd still be in bed.

Therapist: Good work today, sweetie.

Lana: Thanks.

Adam: Hurts, doesn't it?

Lana: Like you wouldn't believe.

Adam: I think you're getting off way too easily.

Lana: Excuse me?

Adam: You have to learn to push through the pain. If we all sat down every time it hurt, this country never would've been built.

Lana: Well, I doubt the founding fathers broke their legs in four places.

Adam: What happened, bad pile up at cheerleading practice? No, no, no, seriously. How did you end up in here?

Lana: Horse got spooked. I ended up under its hooves.

Adam: Hmm. I'm guessing that's not a good place to be. I'm Adam. 454F9D9B.JPG

Lana: Lana.

Adam: All right, Lana, we both know that you have one more lap in you on this puppy. Let's see it.

Lana: How about not?

Adam: I know "struggle" is probably not in your vocabulary, but just to let you know, here, it's credo.

Lana: For your information, I haven't walked in a month.

Adam: Feeling sorry for yourself may work now, but it's not going to get you up a flight of stairs, is it?

Lana: Are you always this obnoxious?

Adam: I'm just telling you how it is. No one's ever honest with girls like you. I bet you have a boyfriend that's always protecting you, right? But he's not here. No one's going to fight this battle for you. You're on your own.  See you around.

Lionel: Hello, Lex. You were making such good progress, son. 454F9DE5.JPG

Lex: You're the one who taught me -- attack adversity head-on.

Lionel: And had you been taking your medication, you would've done just that. This institution is not your adversary, Lex. Your illness is the enemy.

Lex: But I'm better now. I don't need the meds. That story about you killing your parents... it was nothing more than a paranoid delusion. See, somewhere along the line, I... I veered off into the abyss, but... I managed to claw my way back.

Lionel: But that's irrelevant now.

Lex: What do you mean?

Lionel: When your attempt to escape failed, you sabotaged my efforts to have you released, to be cared for at home.

Lex: But I told you... I'm cured. 454F9E28.JPGA cured patient doesn't belong in a hospital.

Lionel: Oh, it's painful to see you like this. You know I have your best interests at heart, don't you?

Lex: The only interest you have... is staying out of prison. I'm not insane, and you know it.

Lionel: It's sad to see a man who's lost his mind. But it's tragic when he's convinced himself that's he sane.

Lex: You son of a bitch. Aah! You did this to me. You're the one who's insane! Aah! You did this to me! Aah! Aah!

Ian: Well, if it isn't Ku Klux van.

Van: Get out of my grille, freaks.

Eric: I'd watch your mouth in here if I were you.

Ian: We heard about your little one-man ethnic cleansing campaign. 454F9F0E.JPG

Van: I don't know what you're talking about.

Ian: Oh, come on, you were out there picking off meteor freaks like ducks on the first day of hunting season.

Eric: And now you're stuck in herewith all us ducks. Quack, quack.

Ian: We don't want to hurt you, van. Believe it or not, the three of us have something in common.

Van: I seriously doubt that.

Eric: Clark Kent put us all in here.

Ian: And the word on the ward is, you know his weakness.

Van: Why should I tell you?

Ian: Well, because we're looking to sample the sweet taste of revenge.

Eric: See, if you weaken him, I can leech his powers and break us all out of here.

Van: Wait, you took Clark's powers. How?

Eric: It was a lightning strike. He took them back with a high-voltage shock.

Van: How do I know I can trust you freaks?

Ian: The enemy of your enemy is your friend.

Claire :I don't feel comfortable moving forward 454F9F4E.JPGwith the procedure yet.

Lionel: Comfortable? Your comfort level is of no concern to me, doctor. I've indulged you for a month while you've conducted this drug therapy of yours, and not only does Lex's memory remain completely intact, but he attempted to escape. I cannot afford to waste any more time.

Claire: Mr. Luthor, the procedure you're proposing is draconian. It's successful in less than 50% of patients, and it leaves the other half with irreparable brain damage. Are you really willing to take that risk?

Lionel: No risk, no reward. Isn't that what they say, doctor?

Claire: Performing this procedure on a patient who does not require it is unconscionable.

Lionel: But it's not the first time. You experimented with it before. We had a mutual agreement, didn't we? I strongly suggest you keep your part of the bargain. So start the procedure immediately.

Chloe: Clark, turn a light on. It's bad for your eyes. 454F9F86.JPGWhat a you doing burning the midnight oil?

Clark: Trying to prove Lex doesn't belong in Belle Reve.

Chloe: What did you find on Lex?

Clark: Well, I have his medical records. Dr. Foster's definitely drugging him.

Chloe: Clark, there are millions of reasons why she could be administering this drug. Psycho therapy is just trial and error. This doesn't prove anything.

Clark: I know. But I got to do something.

<>Chloe: Well, why don't we work on this in the morning, okay? This is just a pit stop. I have to pick up Lana on my way home.

Clark: How is Lana?

Chloe: It's been really tough. She could use some moral support.

Clark: I sent her a card.

Chloe: Nothing says "I love you" more than a $1.50 piece of cardboard.

Clark: If she wanted me there, Chloe, I would be there. Right now, I'm just trying to keep my promises for once. 454F9FBD.JPG

Chloe: Well, keep me posted on the "free Lex" front.

Clark: Chloe, wait. Dr. Foster has recommended Lex for radical electroshock therapy.

Chloe: That's a little extreme, don't you think?

Clark: It is. Memory loss is almost a given. And if everything doesn't go exactly as planned, Lex could turn out a vegetable.

Chloe: When does this happen?

Clark: 24 hours.

Van: Is that my package?

Orderly: Mm-hmm. I still don't get what you want with one of these rocks.

Van: How about we just forget the whole thing?

Orderly: Whatever floats your boat, my man.

Ian: Huh. So, did you get what you were waiting for?

Van: It's in the box. When Kent comes back, he's going to have a little surprise waiting for him. 454FA00C.JPG

[ Grunting ]

Ian: You need a spot?

Van: Look, when Clark shows up, I'll be ready. But until then, let's not pretend like we're friends.

Ian: Well, I just wanted you to meet my better half.

Ian #2: Well, you should know better than to trust a meteor freak.

Claire: What's the emergency?

Nurse: Everything's fine here.

Clark: Is this what you're planning on doing to Lex? There's nothing wrong with Lex. You've been drugging him.

Claire: That's why he's having paranoid delusions. If you're here to accuse me of criminal malpractice, I hope you have the facts to back it up.

Chloe: Oh, I'm sure you could talk your way out of Lex's dubious drug regime. But what about the existing lawsuit for radical electroshock therapy?

454FB6D9.JPGClaire: What happened to Mr. Watkins was unfortunate. But for your information, that suit was dropped.

Clark: Because Lionel Luthor paid it off.

Claire: I'm very busy.  So if you two will excuse me.

Clark: Do you think if you turn Lex into a vegetable that Lionel Luthor's going to let you off the hook?

Chloe: You have all the power here, doctor. Please, help Lex and yourself.

Ian: Newspaper, magazine, crossword puzzle?

Lex: What do you think?

Ian: Right. It must be a little bit difficult to turn the pages. What do you do when you have an itch?

Lex: Get out of my face.

Ian: Boy, I bet you are just itching to get out of this place. Mr. Luthor, what would you do if I told you I had figured out a way for certain animals to escape the zoo?

Lex: I'd ask you why you're still here.

Ian: Funding issues. 454FB721.JPGOnce I'm out, I need to disappear. And a new identity doesn't come cheap.

Lex: Oh, I admire your ambition. But when you tried to murder my friends to get my money, you went a little too far.

Ian: I know I've made some mistakes in the past... but I'm all better now.

Lex: And I'm happy for you... the both of you. Take your little cart and go sucker some other patient with a bank account.

Ian: Suit yourself. Of course... if my brain were about  to be deep-fried, I might have a little bit different attitude. It's going to be hard to get around when your toes are permanently curled. 454FB750.JPG

[ Chuckles ]

Lex: Fear is an effective sales tactic, but... it doesn't work on me.

Ian: How about facts? See... you're on-deck, Mr. Luthor.

Lex: Where did you get this?

Ian: I know everything that goes on in this dump. If you want to save your cerebrum, you know where to find me.

Adam: Whoa. Are you okay?

Lana: Yeah, I'm just pushing through the pain.

Adam: I see you changed your therapy time.

Lana: Yeah, I wasn't crazy about the company.

Adam: Would you believe me if I told you I was a nice guy once with no issues?

Lana: Nice guys normally have the most issues.

Adam: That's why I came. I wanted to apologize. Sorry for taking it out on you. 454FB7A2.JPG

<>Lana: I was upset, because you're kind of right. I haven't really been pushing myself. I guess it's because I know that when I get back on my feet, my life's going to be different. I don't really know if I'm ready to face it. So you never got around to telling me why you're in here.

Adam: Isn't it obvious? Fine cuisine, post-modern decor...

Lana: No, really, what happened?

Adam: Well, uh, I tried to get into a burning building, and a beam collapsed on me. My parents were inside.  I thought I could save them.

Lana: I am so sorry.

Adam: It happened. Now I have to move on.

Lana: See? I guess I'm a little afraid of my future, too.

Clark: And I convinced foster to stop the procedure. She's on her way right now to sign the cancellation papers. 454FB7EA.JPG

Pete: And you think this is a good thing? Clark, he knows your secret.

Clark: I can't let him turn Lex into a vegetable just for that.

Pete: You can't trust him.

Clark: And you've never given him a chance.

Pete: And you give him too many. You think it's easy keeping a lid on your secret? I've got to think about it every time we're around other people to make sure I don't slip. I got to remember to say "meteor rock" instead of "kryptonite," and I always got to cover your unexplained exits.

Clark: Pete, I'm sorry.  You've never said anything.

Pete: Clark, that's not the point.  The point is that I got your back. But Lex won't.

Clark: Chloe. What's wrong?

Chloe: Claire Foster's dead. They found her car wrapped around a tree off highway 54.

Pete: I feel the invisible hand of Lionel Luthor. You two had better back off before he sets his sights on you. 454FB81E.JPG

Chloe: Now, I know you were just trying to help Lex, but I think you've made matters worse.

Clark: There's got to be another way to stop the procedure.

<>Chloe: Clark, Dr. Foster tried to stop it, and look what happened to her. Lionel Luthor is going to make sure this procedure happens.

Clark: Lex.

Lex: Clark, I knew you'd come.

Clark: Let's get you out of here.

Lex: All this time... I was right about you.

<>Ian: What do you know?  It worked. If it weren't for you, Kent, I'd be at Harvard right now with a coed on each arm.

Lex: What the hell are you doing to him?

Ian: Your buddy's our first-class ticket out of here.

Lex: Is that how you plan to escape? I'm not giving you a cent!  Clark's my friend. 454FB887.JPG

Ian: Well, you ought to pick your friends better, considering he didn't tell you his little secret. Come on, let's get out of here.

Lex: No.

Clark: Lex...

Lex: Leave him alone!

Ian: Or you'll do what, Mr. Luthor? Considering they're coming to fry your ass in about five minutes.

Lex: Leave him alone!

[ Coughing ]

Ian: Well, here he is...

Ian #2: Right on schedule.

Clark: Eric.

Eric: Time to give me those powers back. It's not like you're using them, anyway.

Clark: This will never work.

Ian #2: Are you kidding?

Ian: There's enough voltage in here to power a small third-world country.

Eric: Save your strength, Clark. 454FB982.JPGI'm going to need it.

[ Coughs ]

Lex: Clark! Clark! Clark! They've got Clark!

Orderly #1: How the hell did he get out?

<>Orderly #2: I don't know, but I ain't taking any chances. Come on, hold him.

Lex: No! No! Aah!

Adam: There you go. Almost. Okay.

Lana: Done!

Adam: It's not Mt. Everest, but it is a start.

Lana: A few days ago, I wouldn't have even thought that was possible.

Adam: Sometimes, you just have to look impossibility straight in the eye.

<>Lana: Mrs. Kent. What a surprise.

454FB9C0.JPGMartha: Chloe had a late deadline. She asked if I could give you a ride home.

Adam: I'm going to go.

Lana: Okay.

Adam: Hello.

<>Martha: Hello. Interesting physical therapist.

Lana: So, how's Clark? I got his card.

Martha: I'm sorry he hasn't come by to see you.

Lana: To be honest, that was kind of my idea.

Martha: Lana, I-I know that Clark is not always the easiest person to understand, but he never meant to put you in danger.

Lana: Did he send you to argue his case?

Martha: He doesn't know I'm here. I'm sure he'd be upset that I was meddling.

Lana: I just want him to be happy.

<>Martha: I know. But you need to be happy, too, Lana.

Lana: Thanks, Mrs. Kent.

Lex: Please... I'll pay you whatever you want. 454FBA0F.JPGYou'll never have to work another day in your life.

Lionel: He doesn't want your money, son. He wants to make you better... just like I do.

Lex: You're a liar.

Lionel: No. Be strong, Lex.

Lex: Liar!

Lionel: I'm sorry, son.

Lex: Don't do this, dad.

Lionel: Be strong.

Lex: No!

Lionel: Be strong, be strong. I'm sorry, son. I didn't think it would have to come to this. If it were a gangrenous limb, we could amputate. The brain, unfortunately, is infinitely more complex.

454FBA42.JPGLex: No! Don't do this!

Lionel: Do it.

Lex: No! 

[ Muffled yes ]

Eric: Hey! Come on, let's go!

Ian: I'm right here.

Eric: What happened to your better half?

Ian: It's a lot easier to break one person out than two. Let's go.

Lionel: What is it?  What's happening?

Doctor: We don't have any power. There must be a short somewhere.

Lionel: Well, fix it.

Ian: Do you feel any different?

<>Eric: Does that answer your question? Heh heh heh heh! Welcome back to being normal, Clark. It kind of sucks, doesn't it? All right, farm boy, you're going to pay for the two wasted years I spent in here.

Ian: Eric, let's go.

Eric: I'm not through with him yet.

Ian: They're going to realize we're gone. They're going to be here any minute. 454FBAAB.JPG

Eric: What do I care?  It's not my problem.

Ian: No, wait a second.  We're a team. I thought we were friends.

Eric: There's no such thing as friends in here.

Clark: Hey! Is that all you got?

Eric: That little jolt make you insane, Clark?

Clark: Look who's afraid to use their powers now.

Doctor: I don't know what happened.

Lionel: Again.

Doctor: But, sir, the way this equipment is working, we should wait.

Lionel: Do it. Again.

Clark: Tell me where Lex is!

Lionel: Now. Lex. Son.

Doctor: It's over.

[ Door opens ]

Lana: Hi.

Adam: Hey. Am I hallucinating? No crutches.

<>Lana: Well, it's pretty amazing what you can accomplish when someone's cracking a whip over your head. You okay?

Adam: Yeah. This --don't let it spook you. I tend to get dehydrated from time to time.

Lana: Well, I know that these probably can't compare to the desserts in here, but I, um... I wanted to thank you for being such a pain in the butt.

Adam: Anytime.

Lana: Ha ha ha.

Adam: So I guess this is...goodbye.

Lana: Just because I've finished physical therapy doesn't mean I won't come by and visit.

Adam: Lana, please, 455163D7.JPGI'm a memory from a painful moment in your life. Who wants to be reminded of that?

Lana: We all push through the pain, Adam. Maybe you're not willing to do that.

Adam: Lana, I'll be completely honest with you. I like you, but I get the feeling that there's someone else, and I don't want to be caught in the middle of anything.

Lana: There is nothing to be caught in the middle of. But... I'm not really ready to be jumping into another relationship right away.

Adam: Trust me, I don't want to be your rebound boy, either, but I would like to be your friend.

Lana: Yeah, I'd like that.

Adam: Good. Then we're friends.

Lana: Friends.

Clark: Lex.

Lex: Clark.

Clark: How are you feeling? 45516422.JPG

Lex: Great, actually. Never better. I heard you came to visit me, and... I wasn't a very cordial host. If that's true, I'm --I'm sorry.

Clark: Did your dad tell you why he had you committed?

Lex: He said I had a psychotic break. They think my island trauma precipitated it. I'm just grateful my father recognized it in time.

Clark: Me too.

Lex: Do you want to tell me something, Clark?

Clark: No. It's good to have you back, Lex. Welcome home.

Lex: You know, Clark, there is one thing I'll never forget.

Clark: What's that?

Lex: How important your friendship is to me.

Martha: I'm sorry, Clark.

Jonathan: Lex is okay. Your secret's safe. You got to find some consolation in that.

45516487.JPGClark: If Lex is right, Lionel got away with murder.

Jonathan: But you didn't tell him what really happened.

Clark: I figured, what's the point?

<>Jonathan: Clark. Clark, I do not want you and Chloe taking up this charge.

Clark: Someone's got to make Lionel pay for his crime.

Jonathan: Someday, somebody is going to make Lionel pay for his crime, but that day is not today, Clark. Now, I know this is very difficult for you, but you have to realize that there are people out there who are more powerful than you are.

Clark: Yeah.

Martha:  You okay?

Clark: In a way, I envy Lex. He seemed so happy. I wish I could erase the last few months of my life.

Martha: I heard they're having a welcome back party for Lana at the talon. Why don't you go?

Clark: You never quit, do you?

Martha: It's called tough love.  Come on.  Go on.

Lex's voice: I know your secret, Clark.

[Video reverses. Static.]

Lex's voice: I know your secret, Clark.

Lex's voice: I know your secret, Clark.


Lionel: Why didn't you show me this sooner?

Man: I've been working all week to enhance the audio, sir.

Lionel: A week?!  And this is the best you can do?

Lex's voice: I know your secret, Clark.

[Video reverses.  Video reverses.]

Lex's voice: I know your secret, Clark.
