Josh: Let's do this.
[ Bell rings ]
Man: Be right with you. Hello?
[ Tapping sound ]
Man: Hey, fellas.
[ Barking ]
[ Growling ]
[ Dog runs away ]
[ Dog returns ] Blows dog whistle ]
Zack: Hercules. What happened in
Josh: I don't know. Get him inside.
Zack: Load up. Where the hell's einstein?
Josh: Call him back.
[ Blows dog whistle]
Lois: Hi, Chloe, it's Lo. I'm officially out of the
dorm and on my way back to the Kent's. Uh, but I realized I'm
still getting my mail at your place. Can you bring it by in the morning?
Okay. Thanks. Bye. Aah! Oh, my god, what have I done? Oh, my god.
Okay... I didn't see you. We're gonna get you out of here. Okay, listen,
you're gonna be fine. Everyone I've ever hit was all right.
[ Sneezes ]
Lois: Hey, I was just getting in. What are you guys doing up?
Jonathan: We seem to have a visitor. A hungry visitor.Lois: Hey, he's supposed to be tied up in, the barn. Well, I
had him chained to a post, but then I went to my car to get my stuff,
and then. Yeah.
[Belches]Lois: I had him chained right there. Okay, that's just bad wood. That's not my fault.
[ Whines ]
Lois: Oh, my allergies...
Jonathan: Where did you say you found him?
Lois: Actually, I kind of... hit him.
Clark: You hit him... with your car?
Lois: No, with
my fist. I was gonna call the vet, but when I got in just now, he
Jonathan: I think you need to make some fliers morning that way,
maybe we can figure out who he belongs to. He's got a collar. I'm sure
somebody's missing him.
Lois: Fine with me.
[ Sneezes ]
[ Whines ]
Clark: Actually, it might be fun to have a dog around. Maybe if
we can't find out who owns him, we could keep him.
Jonathan: Why don't we just
see what happens tomorrow, Clark?
Lois: Yeah. Don't get too attached. I'm
going to bed.
Jonathan: We should all get some sleep.
Clark: You know, I'm gonna, uh,
I'm gonna do my chores.
Jonathan: It's 3:00 in the morning.
since Lois is staying here, if I'm gonna do my work at super speed, I
have to do it when she's not looking.
Jonathan: All right, then why don't you
start with that post?
Clark: Well, at least I don't have to hide anything from
Clark: Hey, Chloe.
Chloe: Hey. Lois had her mail forwarded to my apartment. Is
Clark: Yeah, she's probably still in the, uh...
Clark: We don't know his name. Lois found him.
Chloe: She's bringing
home strays now, huh? How is the new tenant?
Clark: Lois? Well, she, uh,
re-recorded our answering machine, she uses all the hot water, and she
took over my bedroom. She's doing great.
Chloe: Okay. How
Clark: I don't know. It's just kind of hard to be myself with her
Chloe: Yeah, but now you got this guy. You can be yourself around him,
right? And I'm always around.
[ Shivers ]
Chloe: It's cold. I'm gonna go see if I can find her.
right, I'll be right in.
Clark: Come on. We'll see if this will hold you.
Good boy. Stay.
[ Wood stressing]
[ Crash ]
Clark: Holy... Hey. Looks like you got a secret, too. Where are
you from? Good boy.
Lois: What did you do?
Clark: What? Oh, um, it must've rolled.
Lois: Through a fence?
Clark: Yeah, weird, huh?
Chloe: Yeah, weird. But, I mean, it
happens, you know? The emergency brake must've slipped or something. It's
old, you know? It's an old tractor.
Clark: It is old.
Chloe: Anyway, I'm gonna get
going. I'll see you guys around.
Clark: Just playing with Skippy here.
Lois: We're not gonna call
Clark: Okay, Lois. What would you like to call him?
Lois: Let's see.Um,
he's annoying, and I can't seem to get within 10 feet of him without
getting sick... I think we should call him Clarkie. Come here,
Clarkie. Come here, boy. I made him some fliers. He can be
else's allergy now.
Clark: You know what? I don't think we're gonna have to use
those. I found one of those microchip I.D. tags under his skin. I think
they can scan it at the animal shelter.
Lois: I spent all morning on these.
Clark: I'll be right back. I have to tell my parents something.
Lois: Don't give me that look... Clarkie.
Lois: We should
probably get your mom a new pot roast while we're out. Sit, Clarkie.
[ Growls ]
Lois: Hey. Shh. Hi.
Zach: How can I help you guys?
Clark: We found this
Lois: Actually, I found him. Well, hit him, actually. Not hard. We
call him Clarkie.
Clark: We don't call him Clarkie --
Lois: Is it the "i.e." part you
don't like? Because we can always just make it "Clark," but then that
would get really confusing. And, hey, maybe you should consider changing
your name. You could be Skipper.
Clark: Anyway, uh, we think he might have an
I.D. chip. We were wondering if you could
scan it for us... if it's not too much trouble.
Zack: Um, well, sure, I guess.
[ Growls ]
Zack: Whoa! Easy, boy.
Lois: Yeah. He doesn't seem to have a lot of
love for you.
Clark: Maybe I should do that.
[ Sneezes ]
Zack: Bless you.
Clark: Luthor Corp?
Lois: You're kidding.
Zack: Huh. It
must be one of those lab dogs or something.
Clark: Lab dogs?
Zack: I'd be happy to
take him off your hands and return him for you.
Clark: Actually, you know what?
That's okay. We'll take care of it. Thanks. That's okay. Come on, boy.
Zack: I should probably get your name
and address, though, in case someone from Luthor Corp calls. It's policy.
Clark: Would you mind taking him back to the farm? I'm gonna go talk to Lex.
Lois: Terrific. Come on, let's go sneeze a while. Heel, Clarkie.
Zack: Hey, Josh. Guess
who just showed up. Einstein. Yeah, some guy named Clark Kent is
keeping him out on his farm.
[ Laughs ]
Josh: That's good news, little brother. 'Cause I was thinking we
were gonna have to rob that truck tomorrow with just this dummy.
Zack: Why do
you have to do that?
Josh: What? What do you care? It's just a dog.
Zack: How's he
Josh: He's got a couple hours left in him, long enough to help
us get Einstein back, and then we can shoot 'em both up and... get their
strength back for tomorrow.
Zack: So how come you guys couldn't get the effect
to last longer, anyway?
Josh: I don't know, Zach. I was just a trainer.
[ Laughs ] That's the plan back on, little brother. Let's close up shop, huh?
Lex: Genevieve. What a
surprise. If you're looking for Jason, I
sent him to Metropolis on a business errand.
Genevieve: Actually, I came here to see
Lex: I didn't realize we had any more business to discuss. Drink?
take it my son has proven to be a good hire.
Lex: Excellent. He's taken a
real passion for the project I've given him.
Genevieve: And I gather this
project does not require him to relocate out of Smallville.
Genevieve: I underestimated you, Lex.
Lex: That's a common mistake.
Genevieve: But not
one I usually make. Seems that head strong young men have become my blind
spot. Ask Jason. And now you.
Lex: You asked me to give Jason a position at Luthor Corp. I'm not sure I understand your
Genevieve: You know exactly why I wanted you to hire Jason. Get him away
from Lana Lang. But instead, you decided to co-opt him for your own
Lex: Genevieve, paranoia is not a very attractive quality in a
Genevieve: I'm just trying to protect my son.
Lex: Well, maybe you should
get together with my father and write a parenting book. I bet it'd be a
Genevieve: Then you're no longer interested in how your father was
released from prison?
Lex: I've chosen to believe my father truly is
reformed. Therefore, the question of his guilt or innocence no longer
bothers me. But it's great seeing you again, Genevieve.
Genevieve: And you, too, Lex. Give my best to Jason. It's a shame he won't be able to help you find what you're looking for.
Martha: It's hard to believe he's as strong as Clark says he is. He certainly is a beautiful dog.
Jonathan: Now, wait a
minute, wait a minute. I know what you're thinking.
Martha: Well, it might be
nice for Clark to have a dog. It's been kind of a lonely year for him.
Jonathan: Well, wait a minute. What happens when Clark goes off to college next
year, huh? Who winds up having to take care of that dog? Me.
Martha: Lois, it's
time for dinner!
[ Crash ]
[ Glass shatters ]
Martha: [ Gasps ]
Jonathan: Hey! Hey, hey, hey! You see?
Martha: Well, remember when Clark did that? And he was only 3.
Jonathan: It's not funny.
Hey! Come on!
Lois: What happened?
Jonathan: Hey, that's my T-bone. Gimme --
Lex: Clark. Grab a stick. I was just about to break.
Clark: Lex, is Luthor Corp doing experiments on dogs?
Lex: I'm not really sure that's any of
Clark: Lois found a stray dog. It has a Luthor Corp I.D. tag. Are
Lex: Clark, when I took over the company, I found quite a few irregular
experiments being conducted at my father's
request. One of them involved animal testing.
Clark: What were they doing?
[ Sighs ]
Lex: If I remember correctly... they were mixing meteor
rock with a steroid to enhance canine strength.
Clark: Why would your dad be
interested in making super-powered dogs?
Lex: If I understood my father's
insanity, Clark, I'd be a much happier man. But I suppose, in this
case, there were military applications. I guess I'll never really know
for sure. The results were inconclusive. I had animal rights
activists picketing the site, so I closed it down. I was told the dogs
Clark: Evidently, not all of them.
Lex: Is it exhibiting any
Clark: Is that your way of asking me if it has super strength?
Lex: No. No,
I assume you'd tell me that because I'd have quite a liability on my
hands if he did.
Clark: The dog's perfectly healthy.
Lex: Well, then I'm sure the Kent farm will be a perfect home for him.
Martha: Sorry about dinner. I guess
it's just sandwiches tonight.
[ Tree branch snaps ]
Martha: Jonathan? Jonathan!
Jonathan: Stay back!
Jonathan! Oh, my god, Jonathan! Get away
Jonathan: Martha... no.
Martha: Get away! Get away from
Jonathan: Get back.
Lois: Martha, don't!
[ Dog whistle blows ]
[ Whistle blows ]
Lois: Mr. Kent! Are you all right?
Martha: Lois, get the car keys. We have to take him to the hospital.
<>[ Whistle blows ]
Clark: Dad, What'd they say? Jonathan: Well, the doctor said he's never seen a dog that could bite clean through bone before.
Martha: Look at this.
Clark: The store owner's in a coma. He was attacked by
something that could pulverize a steel door. Now, the police think it's a
Jonathan: You think it was the dogs.
Clark: Someone's controlling these dogs and
Lois: Look, the only people that knew we had the dog were Lex and
that guy at the animal shelter, and since the boy billionaire probably
doesn't go around robbing convenience stores.
Clark: We should check it out.
Jonathan: Well, let's do that first thing in the morning, all right? Clark, would you
give me a hand signing out,
would you? Look, son, I know that
you're really attached to this dog, but I'm worried it could
be dangerous, even to you.
Clark: I know, that's why I have to find out who's
doing this and stop them.
Jonathan: No, Clark, son, it won't make any difference.
If they had anything to do
with putting that man in a coma, then they're
gonna have to be put down.
Clark: Wait, dad, when you and mom found a
super-powered boy in a corn field, you didn't give up on me just
because I might be dangerous. You raised me, you gave me a chance. He's a
good dog, dad. Someone's just using him to do bad things.
Genevieve: I want you to leave here with me
Jason: Why? Because of Countess Margaret Isobel Theroux? You know
that name, don't you?
Genevieve: Is this what Lex has you doing? Researching17th-century witches?
Jason: You're incapable of giving me a
straight answer, you know that? So, apparently, when Isobel was
condemned to die, she vowed to rise again through one of her
descendants. You knew that that was Lana, didn't you? That's why you had
me bring her to Isobel's tomb in Paris. Because you knew that if she
received the mark, then she was the one. Which means it's --it's my
fault that everything's happening to her.
Genevieve: You can't blame yourself.
could you use me like that?
Genevieve: Look, it's not safe for you to stay here.
Jason: Well, I'm not leaving Lana.
Genevieve: Well, perhaps you'll change your mind when you hear the rest of the
story. Isobel was condemned by a woman named Gertrude. Isobel vowed,
that when she rose from the dead, that she would wipe out all of Gertrude's heirs. We're Gertrude's ancestors, Jason.
Jason: So you think that Lana will try to
Genevieve: No. But Isobel will,
and who knows when she’ll return?
Jason: Mother, I
walked out on Lana once before. I'm not gonna do it again.
Genevieve: Then you're
in a love with a girl that may kill our entire family.
Lois: What is this, an
[ Squish ]
Lois: Oh, crap! Do you see him anywhere? Come here, Clarkie.Come
[ Sneezes ] Wow. Could the dander get any thicker in here? You
know, I've been thinking. Clarkie might've had something to do with
what happened at that convenience store, but I don't think he hurt that
guy. There wasn't any blood on him when I found him.
Clark: We're not gonna call
him Clarkie, okay? We're gonna call him Bear or Bandit or something.
no and no.
[ Small dogs barking]
Lois: What is all this?
Clark: It's Luthor Corp payroll. They're
gonna hit an armored truck. And it's happening right now. Lois, call the
police. I'm gonna see if I can catch up with these guys.
Lois: Hold on there, Forrest Gump. What are you gonna do, run? We brought my car,
Clark: Lois, look --
Lois: Unh-unh. We can call the cops on the way. You are
so weird sometimes.
[ Sighs ]
Clark: Can you a little bit faster?
Lois: Hey, you were gonna be
huffing it about 10 minutes ago. Besides, I don't want to hit anything.
Clark: It should be right here.
Lois: Well, it's not.
Josh's voice: Get up. Let's go.
Take the money! Grab the money! Come on!
Zack's voice: Stop yelling at me. I
dropped the bag, okay?
[ Barking ]
Clark: Wait, turn left, turn left.
Clark: Just do it.
Lois: What is
this, another one of your famous hunches, or are we just on a
little scenic route here?
Clark: Okay, stop here.
Clark: Here! Stop here.
[ Dog barking ]
Josh: Grab the bags, come on!
Zack: I am.
Josh: Come on, faster!
Zack: Those guys in the back don't look to good.
Josh: Get the money. Let's go!
Clark: All right, come on.
Josh: Buckle up, little
brother. Come on.
Clark: Can you go
see if you can help those guards?
[ Whimpers ]
Clark: It's all right, buddy. We'll get you out of here.
[ Clarkie barking ]
Zack: What's he barking about?
Josh: I don't know. But in five mintues, it won't matter. We burn the truck, the dogs, everything--all the evidence.
Zack: What.Josh: We're gonna be in the Keys before anyone knows we're gone.
Zack: Where's Einstein?
Josh: What the hell?
Zack: It's that guy from the animal shelter.
Josh: Well, well, well. Looks like someone has some explaining to do.
[ Whines ]
Josh: Well, you just had to be a hero, didn't you?
Sometimes, heroes get burned.
[ Whimpers ]
Zack: Are you sure about this?
Josh: He saw our faces. We can't let
Zack: This wasn't part of the plan!
Josh: The plan's working, okay? We got
the money, and we're almost outta here. You're not gonna chicken out on
me now, are you? Huh?
Josh: I didn't think so. Come on.
[ Whimpers ]
[ Barks, whines ]
Josh: Make a wish, little brother.
[ Dog howling ]
Clark: Going somewhere?
Dr. Klein: This guy's quite a hero, from what I understand.
Clark: Yeah, I hope my dad lets me keep him. Doctor, you didn't notice
anything unusual about any tests you ran on him, did you?
Dr. Klein: Like what?
Clark: Well, he just seems really strong sometimes, and he likes to get into things.
Dr. Klein: Well, if anything, I'd say his strength is a little
below average. You got a perfectly normal, healthy dog
there. Have you thought of a name yet?
Clark: I was thinking of calling him Krypto.
Dr. Klein: Well, I better be going.
Clark: Thanks, Dr. Klein.
Dr. Klien: You're welcome.
What's it mean?
[ Growls ]
Clark: It's because his background is so..cryptic.
Lex: Speaking of his background, I went out to the scene of the robbery and
saw my armored truck. From the look of the back doors, I can only
assume it was the handy work of some very strong dogs.
Clark: Lex, you told me I
could keep him back when you thought he was a failed experiment.
Lex: But, Clark, if the experiment didn't fail, this dog could be dangerous.
he's not dangerous now. He saved my life. I'll take my chances on his
Chloe: So do you mind telling me why I was up until 2:00 in the morning
researching Jason's family tree? I meant that it wasn't, you know,
halfway interesting. It's just... you definitely got your place in the
guinness book of strangest last-minute requests.
Lana: I, uh... saw him
down stairs talking to his mom. It was obviously a heated discussion, but,
uh, when he came up to the apartment, he didn't even mention it to me.
Chloe: Well, did you hear what they were talking about?
Lana: No. But it
clearly rattled him. Chloe, he's keeping something from me. You know, I
don't -- I don't even know who I can trust anymore. Did you find
Chloe: Not much. I mean, I can only go back as far as his mom's
grandmother. After that, it's like someone just chopped off a part of
the family tree. There's nothing there. I can tell you that she comes
from a town called Castelnois de Montmiral. But that's all I know. Well,
except that.. Lana, are you okay?
Lana: Chloe... this is the town that my
ancestors come from... and Isobel Theroux.
Chloe: Well, on a scale of weird
to 10... Genevieve's grandmother is the one who moved Isobel's
tomb into that church in Paris.
Lana: Why would anyone move a witch's tomb into
Chloe: I think that's something you need to ask Jason.
Lionel: If you're
looking for my son, he's not here.
Jason: I'm just returning something.
yes. How's the research coming?
Jason: I'm not sure I know what you mean.
you do. I mean Isobel.
[ Chuckles ]
Lionel: I understand your hesitation. When I found out that you've been
hired by my son, I put a few of the pieces together and saw the
connection. You, um... you're Genevieve Teague's boy. Yes. Of course.
[ Chuckles ]
Lionel: You can't trust her, Jason. Course, you can't trust my
son, either, but I think you know that.
Jason: And I suppose you're gonna tell
me I can trust you, though. What's this?
Lionel: Open it. I think it might help
Lois: Well, it took you long enough. Now you just have to fix the
dining room table, the window, the fence --[
Sneezes ] I thought bathing him was supposed to help with my allergies.
Clark: Well, maybe you're allergic to the soap, too.
Lois: Maybe I'm allergic to you.
Can you grab me a towel, please? Thanks. So...what are we gonna call him?
And don't give me any of this "Skipper" crap.
Clark: I was thinking we'd call
Lois: Why, because he's so cryptic like you? I don't think so.
Lois: Because I think it's dumb. You can call your next dog Krypto. Look,
it's not that hard. Max, Lucky, Rocky, Bailey... Scamp, Monty...Bud?
Jonathan: Hey, you're gonna have to pick one of those if you want to keep him.
Martha: Come here, boy. You know, when I was a little
girl, we had a dog that looked just like this one. Maybe that's why I
liked him so much right away. His name was Shelby.
Lois: I can live with that.
Clark: Well, it beats "Clarkie." Come on, Shelby! Let's go
outside! All right, nice catch! Come on, boy!
