Karen: No, you don't understand. I
need help now. No, please, you have to help us. No, there isn't enough time. Aah!
Proofread by Deanna
Tanner: What the hell's the matter with you people? This is an emergency!
Karen: It's too late.
It's too late. It's coming! Oh, god. What's happening to me?
Tanner: I'm sorry!
Karen: No! No,
don't leave me, please! Aah!
Clark: Are you all right?
Lana: Yeah, what was that?
Clark: I don't know.
I think it came from Evans Field.
[ Baby crying ]
Lana: Oh, my god.
Clark: Lana, wait. Lana!
Adams: Last time I checked, babies don't just fall out of the sky, Mr. Kent.
Clark: It left
a 30-foot crater, Sheriff. How else would you explain it?
Adams: Well, I can't. That's
why we're conducting a little something called an investigation.
Jonathan: What's gonna happen to the baby now, Sheriff?
Adams: Well, he'll be placed with child services until we can find a home for
him. You did good for a change, Mr. Kent. The little critter wouldn't be alive
if not for you.
Clark: Dad, this baby's parents -- I don't think they're from around
Jonathan: What do you mean? You think the baby's -- the baby's not from earth?
found him in a crater, just like you and mom found me.
Jonathan: Yeah, but when we found
you, we also found a spaceship. The truth is, we don't know what happened on that field.
[ Crying ]
Lana: I've tried everything, but he won't stop.
Clark: Is he okay?
you can believe it, all his crying is a good sign. The doctor said he's
Lana: I'm gonna go talk to the nurses, find out if we can get some
more formula. Clark, you take over.
Clark: Well, I, Lana, I don't really --
[ Stops crying ]
Lana: Wow, looks like someone has the magic touch. I'll be right
Clark: When does child services come and take him?
Martha: They're not. They don't
have room for him yet, so he's going to stay in the hospital until they do.
Clark: Well, he can't stay in the hospital. I mean, he maybe he can come stay with
us. Until they find room for him.
Chloe: I found an arrowhead in evans field once, but never a baby in a crater.
Lana: It's really weird. But what's
even weirder is the way Clark is with him.
Let me guess -- he's completely
Lana: Actually, exactly the opposite. You should see the look in his eyes
when he's holding that baby. It's like he's completely at ease, not to mention
he's a natural born baby burper.
Clark: I've got the spit-up stains to prove it. Sorry
I'm late. I was up all night with the crying machine, and every time I put him
down, he starts up again.
Lana: Well, if you need help, I could come over tonight.
that would be great. Could you pick up some formula on the way?
Lana: Sure. How are
you on diapers?
Clark: The diapers pretty good.
Chloe: Okay, before you guys start picking out
the schools for the little tyke, you might wanna hear this. I had my contact at
emergency services run a check of all the 911 calls made around the time that you
found the baby. This one kinda stuck out.
Tanner's Voice: What the hell's the matter
with you people? It's an emergency!
Karen's Voice: It's too late! It's coming!
It's coming! Aah!
Lana: She sounds so scared.
Karen's Voice: No! No, don't leave me, please!
[ Dial tone ]
Lana: Did he just leave her there?
Clark: If he did, he might still be alive.
Chloe: From the sounds of this, the mother wasn't as lucky.
Lana: She didn't even get to see
her own baby.
Chloe: But the baby survived. How is that possible?
Clark: Can you trace this
call back to the cell phone?
Chloe: I can try.
Clark: If this is the father, he might have some
answers for us.
Lionel: Genevieve. You know, I'm not accustomed to being summoned like a
Genevieve: Don't be silly, Lionel. I'd never allow you on my lap.
[ Chuckles ]
Lionel: So, uh, why am I here, if not for the, uh, pleasure of your
Genevieve: It's time to repay old debts, Lionel. Arranging your release from maximum
security prison was not an easy task. And I have yet to receive even a hint of
Lionel: Well, I've been racking my brain trying to write a thank-you note, but,
uh, words could never express the way I feel.
Genevieve: Your son just returned from China
with a lost element. And I would like you to retrieve it for me.
Lionel: No, no, you
have the wrong son in mind. It was Jason who brought the stone back home.
incapable of such subterfuge. Unfortunately, he inherited his intelligence from my
husband's side of the family.
Lionel: Yeah, I never thought you married well.
Genevieve: Lex, on the
other hand, received his genes from a far more cunning source.
[ Chuckles ]
Lionel: You know, there were other treasure seekers in China, Genevieve.
Genevieve: Ha. A farm boy, an ex-cheerleader, and Lex Luthor.
Genevieve: Who do you think ended up with
Lionel: Well, my son hasn't been listening to me for years. What do you want
me to do, give him a good spanking?
Genevieve: You know, Lionel, I don't think either one of
us want me to go after Lex myself.
Lionel: You be careful, Genevieve. I regard a threat to
any Luthor as a threat to me.
Genevieve: Interpret it any way you like. I want that
Clark: What's the matter? What's the matter, little guy? Is your milk too
cold? Huh? Here, try this. Try this, try this. Huh? Yeah? There you go. There you go.
Martha: Clark, I could easily get Chelsea to cover
for me at The Talon. You don't have to stay home.
Clark: That's okay. I want to stay with
Clark: It kind of changes your perspective when you have someone who depends
on you for everything.
Clark: And I mean everything. Could you hand me a diaper?
Martha: Here you go. Well, listen, you have my number at The Talon, and your dad's out in
the barn if you need him.
Martha: Have fun.
Clark: Yeah. Okay.
Lana: Clark Kent, changing
diapers like a pro.
Clark: You know, all this baby stuff is easier than people say. I
think I pretty much got it under control. Nice aim, little guy.
Lana: Clark, we can't
keep calling him "little guy." They're gonna make fun of him when he gets to high school.
Clark: Well, um... we found him in Evans Field. Why don't we call him Evan?
Lana: I think he
likes it. Hello, Evan. This is Clark, and I'm Lana. And we think that you're the
most beautiful baby ever.
Clark: You know, Lana, maybe we should take a step back.
back from what?
Clark: Well, maybe we shouldn't get so attached. I mean, if his
father's still alive --
Lana: Then he never should've left him in that field.
Clark: Lana, we
don't know what happened. He could've gone for help. He could be looking for Evan
Lana: Or maybe he isn't. Maybe Evan is an orphan, just like we were. Clark,
things like this don't just happen. There's a reason he survived and that someone
like you found him.
Clark: We found him. Evan?
Lana: Clark, what's happening?
Jonathan: Clark, wha--
Lionel: What are you doing, son? An exciting new venture, something worthy of a
captain of industry?
Lex: I'm simply continuing where you left off, dad. I, uh, can't
Lionel: Well, we better talk. Genevieve Teague thinks you have the missing
element. The one from China.
Lex: Come on, dad. You've raised me to be smarter than
that. Why use Genevieve Teague as a threat? Why not just come out and ask for it
Lionel: I'm here as a father who's concerned about the safety of his son. She
had Bridgette Crosby murdered because of one of those elements. You think she'd hesitate to
do the same to you?
Lex: I don't have it. And even if I did, I'd never trust you.
Lionel: Lex we haven't a lot of time left to spend together. You can go on for the rest
of your life being mistrustful of me, or you can accept me as your father who
loves you. She's dangerous, Lex. She -- watch your back, son.
Lex: I always do.
is Evan now?
Clark: In the loft with Lana. And, mom, I've never seen anything like it.
Last night, he was just a baby.
Jonathan: His growth spurt was really amazing.
frightening. Evan needs to be seen by a doctor. We have to take him back to the hospital.
Clark: What are we gonna
tell the doctors -- he's some second-generation meteor freak? He'll either wind
up in Belle Reve or a laboratory for the rest of his life.
Jonathan: I don't know, Clark,
but we owe it to him to do something.
Clark: I was thinking we'd take him to someone who
has experience in the effects of meteor rock.
Jonathan: Clark, I realize that Lex has helped
us in the past, but there's no way that I'm about to put this young man's life in
Clark: If I were in trouble, and Lex was the only one who could help, what
would you do?
Evan: "You must be very kind to him, "to teach him all he needs to know in
rabbit land. For he is going to live with us forever and ever."
Lana: You know how to
Evan: I've read all of Clark's books. But this is my favorite. I also liked the
Lana: The encyclopedia, huh? That's a pretty long book.
Evan: I know. I stopped on "W."
Windmills. Did you know they were invented in Persia? Why are you looking at
me like that?
Lana: Um... you are a very,very special boy, Evan. I think that you are
the most special little boy that I have ever met.
Lana: Yeah. And you're really
lucky, because there are so many more books for you to read and so many places for
you to see.
Evan: Like what?
Lana: Like a real windmill. And when you stand upon top of it,
the whole world stretches out around you.
Evan: Can we go right now?
Clark: Where are
Evan: Dad! Mom's taking me to see a real windmill. Wanna come?
Clark: Um...Evan... listen... we're not your real parents.
Evan: Everyone's supposed to have a mother and father. And they're supposed to love each
other very much, just like you and Lana.
Lana: Clark and I care about you a lot, Evan.
That's what matters.
Evan: If you're not my mom and dad, where are they?
Lana: We don't know,
but... wherever they are, I'm sure they love you very much.
Clark: You wanna go for a
ride in the truck?
Evan: Are we going to the windmill?
Clark: Uh...we will, but first, I want
to take you to meet a friend of mine.
Clark: I hope I've done the right
Lana: Clark, he looks really scared.
Clark: I just hope it'll be over soon. Lex has his
top scientists trying to figure out what's happening.
Lex: And they've already come up with some
Lana: Lex, is he gonna be all right?
Clark: Tell us what's happening.
Lex: Well, the results are only preliminary, but the data indicates that Evan's body is
storing energy, like a battery charging.
Lana: Charging for what?
Lex: The theory we're
working on is that once enough energy is stored, it's expended to fuel a burst of
rapid cell division.
Clark: That's how he was able to go from a baby to a 7-year-old in
Lana: Is there any way to stop it?
Lex: My team believes a bone marrow transplant
might slow the growth and bring his metabolism back to normal.
Lana: Can we use my bone
marrow? We're willing to do anything to help.
Lex: Well, it's not that simple. His
genetic makeup is highly unusual. For this to work, we'll need an exact match with a living donor, which means a biological parent.
we think his mother died when he was born. We're still trying to find his father.
Lana: What's going to happen to Evan if we can't? Evan! Evan.
wrong with me? Prep the level 3 facility. I want him transferred immediately.
You're not taking him anywhere.
Lex: Clark, we need to isolate him while we run more
Evan: I just want to go home.
Lana: Lex, he's just a boy.
Clark: We understand you're trying
to help, and we appreciate it. He's been through enough. We're taking him home.
Evan: I'm dying, aren't I?
Lana: Evan, don't say that.
Evan: I-I read the average life span of a
man is 74 years. I've aged from a newborn to a teenager in 48 hours. Do the math.
Clark: Evan, we're not gonna give up. Lex has got his team working on a cure right now.
Lana: And if we can find your father --
Evan: Do you really think they're gonna find a cure
for me overnight? It's like my life was just some sort of trick that was played
on me. All that stuff I read in the books that I thought I was gonna see... I'm
not... am I?
Clark: Don't talk like that, all right? We just have to keep trying.
Evan: It's not fair. This whole thing --it's just not fair!
Lana: Clark, we have to do something. We can't just let this happen to him.
Clark: Would you go
see if he's okay? I need to find his father.
Chloe: So our friendly phone company just
got friendlier. I was able to trace the 911 call back to a cell phone. His
mother was Karen Gallagher. She was a senior here.
Clark: I remember hearing about
her. Was she wall of weird material?
Chloe: I got a couple blips on the radar when I
heard that she had a knack for shorting monitors whenever she walked into the
computer lab, but I had no idea that super-fast pregnancy powers was part of the
Clark: How long was she pregnant for?
Chloe: Well, last weekend, Christina Varrano had
a party at her house, and Karen apparently went NC-17 with some guy in the
bedroom. Christina has no idea who the guy was.
Clark: So she got pregnant and delivered a baby a week later? We
need to find Evan's father.
Chloe: Okay. Well, Christina used e-vite to send out all her
invitations. I guess ours got lost in the electronic mail. Let's just check all
the RSVPS and try to track him down.
Clark: Excuse me. Does Tanner Sutherland work here?
Man: Yeah, he's over there.
Clark: Thank you. Tanner?
Tanner: Leave your car around back, I'll get to
Clark: Were you at Christina Varrano's party last week?
Tanner: Uh, I don't remember. I
think I was working.
Clark: So you didn't hook up with Karen Gallagher?
Tanner: What do you want?
Who the hell are you?
Clark: I'm the guy who found your son, laying in the middle of a
Tanner: Look, dude, I don't have a son, and I don't know what
you're talking about, all right? I got work to do.
Clark: I'm not going to let you walk
away from this. You have a responsibility.
Tanner: Get off me, man. What's your problem?
Clark: My problem is your son needs your help. Now tell me how he got in that field.
got with this girl at a party. The next day, she calls me up, crying, saying
she's --she's pregnant. I go over, and her stomach -- it was already... a week
later, we were in my car, we're speeding to the hospital,
screaming, "it's coming!" And she starts glowing. And then the car -- it went
up like a freakin' a-bomb. That wasn't a baby. It was some kind of monster.
Clark: He's a human being, Tanner, and he's your son. He's aging
rapidly. He needs your help. He needs a bone marrow transplant. You're the only
one who can help him.
Tanner: What? No. Look, I can't deal with this. I'm sorry. I can't.
Clark: How could someone do that to their own son?
Jonathan: Clark, being a father is an enormous
responsibility. The kid is just too young to handle it.
Clark: He's Evan's only hope, and Evan's going to die if we can't convince him to help.
Jonathan: I know that, son, and
we're gonna figure it out. But what's more important right now is what are we
gonna tell Evan?
Clark: Maybe it's best I don't even tell him I found his father. He's
gonna take it pretty hard.
Jonathan: Son, an orphaned child has every right to know about his origins. You should know that better than
anybody. I'll tell you what --I'll talk to him, okay? I mean, I do have a
little experience in that department.
Clark: Thanks, dad, but I think I should tell him.
Evan: Tell him what? Did you find my father? Clark, where is he?
Clark: He works
downtown... at Massey's Auto Garage. His name's Tanner Sutherland.
Evan: When can I see
Clark: Look, Evan, um, sometimes, when you meet your biological father, it can be
Evan: Why? I don't understand. They don't always live up to your expectations, Evan. Trust me, I know.
Evan: But I want to see him.
Lana: Evan, we're just trying to protect
Evan: You can't protect me. No one can.
Clark: Just calm down, okay?
Evan: Stop telling me what to do, Clark.
You're not my father.
Lex: Is there any possibility of an error?
run the projections three times.
Clark: Lex, I found Evan's father.
Lex: Where is he?
here in Smallville, but he doesn't want to help.
Lex: I've just been informed that Evan's cell division is increasing exponentially, along with the energy the expels
when he ages. We have only a few hours to stabilize Evan. According to the
projections, Evan is building towards a massive chronological event.
saying Evan's about to die?
Lex: It's a lot worse than that. The next time Evan
ages, he'll release enough energy to kill himself and anyone else at hand.
night. We're closed. Come back tomorrow. Are you deaf? What are you
Evan: My father.
Tanner: Don't call me that. I'm not your dad.
Evan: Yes, you are. Why
won't you admit it?
Tanner: You stay the hell away from me.
Evan: Please, dad. Just help me. I'm
Tanner: No, you're not! You're some kind of freak!
Evan: Dad? Dad? Dad. Oh, no. Oh,
my god, what have I done?
Clark: Okay, dad, call me if you find him.
Lex: What happened?
gone. He must've snuck out. My parents are looking for him, and Lana's at the farm
in case he comes back.
Lex: Well, let's make sure we can help him when he turns up.
Lex: He's dead.
Lex: Clark, we needed a living donor to
stop Evan from aging again.
Clark: There's gotta be something else we can do to help
Lex: There is. We need to track him down and seal him in a containment
chamber under LuthorCorp.
Clark: No. Lex --
Lex: It's the only way to contain the blast from
his final change.
Clark: Lex, I'm not gonna let him just die.
Lex: Nothing can stop that from
happening now, Clark. Look, I'm sorry, but if we don't isolate Evan, a lot of
innocent people are going to be killed.
Lana: He hasn't come back, Mr. Kent. Let me
know if you find him. Okay. Evan, I have been worried sick about you. We've been
looking for you all night. Are you okay?
Evan: I don't know. I did something bad.
Lana: Evan, tell me what happened.
Evan: It was an
accident... a mistake.
Lana: We all make mistakes. It's part of what makes us human.
[ Groaning ]
Lana: Are you all right?
Evan: It's happening again. I can feel it.
gonna call Clark, and we're gonna get you help, okay?
Evan: It's coming. I can feel it.
Lana: There has to be something that we can do.
Evan: There is. The windmill that you told me
about, remember? Where the whole world stretches out around you. I'd like to see
it. Just once. Please, Lana, hurry.
Clark: Chloe, has Evan been here?
Chloe: No. I mean, at the rate he's
aging, I'm not even sure I'd recognize him.
Clark: He must be with Lana. I keep trying to
call her, but all I get is static.
Chloe: Maybe he's putting off an energy field like
his mom was.
Clark: That would explain the power surges.
Chloe: Power surges?
Clark: Yeah, they've
been popping up all over town for the last hour.
[ Beep ]
Clark: What's this?
Chloe: It's the DWP grid. See, these are the affected areas.
Clark: Where's the most recent one?
Chloe: Um... 10 miles west on the out skirts of town in the
middle of nowhere. Why would Lana and Evan be way out there?
Clark: The windmill.
one at Chandler Field? Go get 'em, speedy.
Evan: You were right. The whole world is right there. It's
Lana: I'm glad you finally got a chance to see it.
Clark: Lana, you have to go.
clark, we have to help him.
Clark: There's no time. You have to go now.
Clark: Go. It's
okay. I'm here.
Evan: I'm sorry for what I said.
Clark: It's okay, I know. It's all right.
glad it was you and Lana that found me.
Clark: I think you found us.
Evan: What's happening? I
can feel it. You better go.
Clark: No. Evan, I'm not leaving you.
Evan: I wish you had been my
Clark: Evan. Evan.
Lana: Clark! Clark! Clark, are you all right?
Clark: I got clear just before.
Lana: Where's Evan?
Clark: He's gone.
Lana: I can't believe he's gone.
Clark: I know. Me too.
Lana: This whole year, I've felt so
disconnected. But when Evan came into my life, it was like I finally knew where I
belonged. I had a purpose.
Clark: He only lived for a short time, but it seems like Evan's affected us like we've known him our whole lives.
Lana: Clark, we think we
have all the time in the world, that we're going to live forever, but it's not
Clark: I guess we should make the most of the time we have before it's too late.
Lana: This was his favorite book.
Clark: It was my favorite book when I was a
kid. I, um, I used to pretend that I was the rabbit. I was just
like him, and my parents had brought me to life with their love.
Lana: My only hope is
that Evan felt that way about us.
Lionel: It's a 1961 Bordeaux.
[ Chuckles ]
Lionel: I am honored.
Genevieve: Well, I assume your visit means I have cause to
Lionel: Don't all my visits deserve to be celebrated, Genevieve?
Genevieve: Some more
[ Chuckles ]
Genevieve: Do you have something for me?
Lionel: I most certainly do. To the
resolution of our problem.
Lionel: Parenthood -- it's an interesting phenomenon,
isn't it? The lengths we go to... to protect our children. No limits.
Genevieve: What are
[ Gasping ]
Lionel: The wine you've just drunk will kill you in a matter of
minutes. I'm told that the pain will be excruciating. How about a trade? You give
me the stone that you stole from Bridgette Crosby, and I give you... the
antidote. One more thing -- you go near my son, and anything that happens to him
happens to you. Is that understood? The element, Genevieve. Where is it?
Jonathan: You did everything you could, Clark.
Martha: I'm sure Evan knew
Clark: All the times that I've run off or disappeared or almost died, how did
you guys deal with that?
Jonathan: It isn't easy, Clark, but it does come with the
territory. You see, every parent's greatest fear is that one day they will
lose their child forever.
[ Sighs ]
Clark: It seems like raising a kid is the toughest job in the world.
also the most rewarding.
Jonathan: There is nothing quite like watching your son grow up
into a young man you can be very proud of.
Clark: It's too bad I'll never know what
Martha: Why not?
Clark: I'm from another planet. I'm not even human. Who knows if I
can have kids?
Martha: Clark, your father and I couldn't have children. We were still
blessed with a son. You never know what the future will bring you.
told me you straightened things out with child services. I appreciate it.
Lex: Well, I
know you grew pretty tight with him. I promise you, Evan's life wasn't in vain.
Clark: What do you mean? Well, my team believes studying his unique cellular
structure could advance research on cancer and age-related diseases by hundreds of
years. I'm releasing our findings to every research facility across the globe.
Evan's life may offer hope for generations to come.

Lex: A good one as long as you were in his life. I bet you're gonna be a
great dad someday, Clark.
Clark: So will you, Lex.
Lex: I don't know about that. Look, we're
all reflections of how we've been raised. Your parents gave you encouragement and
support. My chose the opposite track. I plan on leaving a different kind of
legacy. Well, I better get back to work.
Clark: Thanks, Lex.
Man: Mr. Luthor, are you sure
you want to release the findings?
